Latest Blog – Rugby League World Cup
This main welcome page has not changed since I moved over onto WordPress a few years ago. So I think it’s time for a bit of a change.
I am a Visually Impaired Nuerodivergent who has number of chronic conditions. I have been Disabled all my life. Over the years we have discovered more about these disabilities and uncovered new ones.
When it comes to being Disabled I try remain positive, understandably I do have times when I am not positive. Which is perfectly fine. It is not all about positivity, it can be about being realistic. There’s nothing wrong with that.
Why I started blogging?
My blog started when I was at University as a way to write about my end of year project. It was completely unrelated to anything it is now. Eventually after leaving University It was difficult to get a job as it was 2012 and the world was climbing out of recession. One of the hardest decisions when applying for a job is ‘to disclose or not disclose your disability’.
The world tends to believe that disabled people are not capable members of society and that we should not take up too much room. This is something I wanted to challenge. This is when I decided to start writing my blog to challenge the notion that disabled people are not capable of anything.
I found a job which I love and I continued my blog. Raising awareness is the blogs main purpose. But there are other things I write about too.
Please have a mooch around let me know your thoughts.
