Because I am trying to juggle so many things around, my head feels like it’s stuck in a vice. I can’t multi-task I think that’s part of the problem.
I’ve been putting new re-edits for my Manuscript together, whilst continuing to write and run my website, so mentally I’m tired. Not an easy task for someone who is better at completing single orderly tasks, more than she is multi-tasking.
Having managed to get out for a walk, I bumped into someone I hadn’t seen for years. We got to talking and she asked how I was and what I was doing. She didn’t know I had cerebral palsy and the first thing she said was ‘sorry.’
Coming from someone who didn’t know me well: it was lovely how she automatically understood my disability, how she knew that with cerebral palsy I would have certain digestion issues and lovely that she asked me about those.
For the first time there was someone who was standing in front of me, who wasn’t standing in judgment and who was happy to talk about my disability, someone who had no preconceived ideas or opinions on my difficulties.
There’s no getting away from it, now contrast that with ‘my story’ with others having put their own self-interests and their lives first.
