I have decided to start blogging for a couple of reasons. Many people are curious about how I cope, what I do with my day and what it’s like to live as a disabled person. It’s not all doom and gloom, although it’s not a bed of roses either. I guess I want people to learn that despite having MND/ALS, I still get joy and meaning out of life.
I hate, hate, hate pity. Got that? So this is not a vehicle for a ‘pity party’, ok?! I envisage this blog to be a honest and wry insight into a world from the perspective of a recently disabled person. I never had any friends or family with a physical disability, so I had really never thought about it before. I now experience life from a completely different angle and, boy oh boy, I have learnt so much about people – good and bad. This is what I am most excited about sharing with you and I promise to give you a few laughs along the way.
