The 17th May 2010 is when it all began. What started as an inspirational tool for me to vent, has turned into so much more. It continues to be a source of daily strength for me. My website is a way for me to put my experiences into order, ticking a box for each experience, because that allows for clarity where I had none.
It’s a place where I can understand my experiences in their entirety, allowing myself to move into a more positive head space after years of negativity around a disability I didn’t know I had. It’s also a tool for new explorations, allowing me to continue to understand my disability as I continue to learn more about myself.
My diary allows me to write about and find acceptance on the whole ‘Cerebral Palsy’ thing, including my neurological difficulties, because that is what I struggle with the most. It is also a tool for others to understand and explore their own experiences through my experiences, which allows them to incorporate their own change.
I would like to use this opportunity to thank friends who continue to post and support me and who continue to inspire us through their experiences, in response to my blogs. Thank you to those who continue to read my blogs and for anyone new coming to the diary.
The CP Diary not only continues to be an inspiration for me, but it’s a place where we can all be ourselves, in a world that is forever changing and where we get to support one another in such uncertain times.
