Looking back on my life, I see that my life was pretty much mapped out for me when I was born and there was nothing I could do to change that.
As a child, I was never going to know I had Cerebral Palsy, but when my mother became terminally ill 4 years ago, I remember her saying how difficult things had been for her at my birth. I believe this was my mother’s legacy to me.
I never thought any more about my Cerebral Palsy until near to my mother’s passing. I needed to find out more on what I had been struggling with for all of those years. From experiencing very little personal success growing up, I have now turned that around with diplomas behind me and my website.
Although I was never open as a child because it was never encouraged, I always wanted to talk about the things that mattered, the things I struggled with; that has never changed or left me. The transition for me to write came fairly easy, but I never take that for granted.
My mum’s legacy has paved the way for me to turn some of those things around.
