A long and difficult road

It’s been a long and difficult road to get to where I am. There are days when I wonder how I’m still standing, let alone writing. My writing doesn’t replace the trauma I went through, it merely sits alongside what I know.

There is no doubt that without my book Cerebral Palsy: ‘A Story’ Finding the Calm After the Storm, I would still be fumbling around in the dark looking for answers.

What happened to me became personal even if it didn’t start out that way. Throughout my life not knowing about my disability, my mantra was to keep focused, to keep going, to try to find a way through.

Throughout my childhood, my experiences created some very hurtful emotions. I often felt detached, as if what was happening to me was happening to a prototype of me. Trying to get to grips with a disability I didn’t know I had, even with my beliefs intact, meant I would never understand who I was.

When you go through trauma, you lose who you are. Eleven years in and although my blog allows me to explore some of my experiences, it is my book that charts my life, which allows me to understand ‘me’ for the first time. My experiences didn’t break me, they made me.

I am not only equipped with fundamental tools to change how I am able to perceive my life moving forward, but my tools will also equip you, so that you too can move forward with your life.

  1. I would encourage everyone reading this website, to subscribe to the newsletter and better still, buy Ilana’s amazing book, especially as it has been discounted.

    It costs no more than a couple of coffees, but might just change how you think about your life. You can’t say a latte can do that for you now can you?

    1. Thanks for the thumbs up. Yes, I can understand why in Covid19 there is reluctance to pick up a non-fiction book.

      But life doesn’t just happen, even when we’re out there and masks become voluntary, we still have ‘us’ to deal with.

      I would implore people to buy it. Not just because it’s my book and authors want others to read their work, but because it will change the way you think about your life moving forward and it’s what we all need right now.
