I am delighted to let you all know that my forthcoming book, Cerebral Palsy: a story ‘Finding the Calm after the Storm,’ is due to be released on the 2nd January, 2020. Everything to do with the book will now be categorised under ‘My Book.’
Not knowing I cerebral palsy meant each day was an ongoing battle. Post diagnosis, although writing for my website has been instrumental in bringing more peace into my life, writing the book has been a different experience altogether.
I could never have brought my experiences together to this point without the book. I could never have had the understanding. Working through my experiences to produce the book, has given me more understanding where there was ignorance, and serenity where there was agitation.
Through writing the book I have learned a lot about myself, understood and learned things for the first time that I didn’t know, post diagnosis. Without the book I could never have gone into as much detail as I have about my experiences.
My book has brought closure, where in my formative years, I could only dream. As it has taken so long for me to get to this stage, dealing with so much stress and anxiety in the absence of a diagnosis, writing the book hasn’t brought me satisfaction.
The book is a big accomplishment for me, where in the early days, I dare to dream. Given my difficulties these kind of accomplishments, seemed beyond my reach. Now I am achieving it.
