Looking back on my life, I see that my life was mapped out for me when I was born and there was nothing I could do to change it. It’s been difficult.
Growing up, I was never going to know I had cerebral palsy, but I do remember her saying my birth was difficult and that was her legacy on a diagnosis.
Although I lived with mental struggles, I never thought about cerebral palsy until near to my mother’s passing, because there was no point. I know on her passing I wanted 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 my website and having gone back into studying on-line I now also have diplomas behind me.
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. The transition for me to write came fairly easy, but I never take that for granted.
