My Cerebral Palsy Progression

In the early days of starting my blog I would write about Cerebral Palsy, it was my way of understanding I had a disability, exploring my mental and emotional symptoms, understanding what those meant, understanding me.

Now 11 years in and I am still writing about my disability. There is very little written out there about cerebral palsy and how it progresses, but since it’s the least resourced condition and spoken about condition in society, it would be difficult for specialists to really know how as we age, cerebral palsy progresses.

Over the last year, my hands don’t work well. I struggle to open screw lids and bottles that I used to be able to open, including the inside of cereal packs. I also struggle to open car doors, and whilst that may not sound like a lot, it’s a concern for me, because in 5 years’ time, I’m wondering as I age, what other struggles I might be presented with.

My writing allows me to come to terms with a lot of what has happened in my life including Cerebral Palsy. It is in my first book, Cerebral Palsy: A Story ‘Finding the Calm After the Storm’ that my journey begins, for others also. Through reflection I take that journey, as I also lead my readers by the hand.

Spirituality, Healing and Me…

“Reflection is a process, that helps to create an internal space for exploring traumatic experiences, that have hurt and continue to hurt us.” – Ilana Estelle

For each of us to understand and come to terms with our experiences, and to be able to move on with our lives, it is important to use reflection in our everyday lives. I show you how.
