Although through my blog I write about my experiences around a disability I didn’t know I had and I talk about my experiences, it is completely different to how my book will read.
My book is ‘my story’. I take myself through my childhood, through my struggles in the early years, through my teenage years, and up to the current time. It goes more into my thoughts and feelings on my disability and how I got to this place.
It encapsulates my thoughts and feelings, living with a disability I didn’t know I had, recalling some of my most painful experiences and how those made me feel.
My website is important, but the book is even more important, because it has allowed me to bring acceptance in a way that’s different to my blog. The book is a self-affirming journey. I have a unique perspective now. For the first time I can connect with my life, in the order my experiences happened.
Where I had chaos, through my book I now live with order. I see myself and my life differently. Where I took a leap of faith and didn’t know whether I would succeed, I have succeeded and for the first time, I am able to identify my strengths.
I am motivated and will continue with my writing, both through my website and any potential new book, further down the line. If you like my blog, you’ll love the book. Please watch this space for more news.
