My weekend was filled with thoughts that I feel I need to blog out. Seeing someone’s reflection in the mirror yesterday took me back to my struggling, looking at my own reflection in the mirror, whilst growing up.
Over the years, I have challenged myself to look in the mirror so I’m not as bad as I used to be. I try to consciously focus on what I need to look at, so the problem doesn’t bother me. My other thought turns to exercise. I haven’t been able to exercise for the last four or five days, which makes my leg weaker.
Walking around this weekend in Edinburgh has been tough for me. I need to be okay about it all because cerebral palsy is part of my life. Reminding my family that I need them to slow down on our walks, acts as a trigger.
They need to remember for themselves, then I wouldn’t have to feel so bad. Working on my usual optimism, I know tomorrow will be better.
