My Blog Book: Prologe

August 6, 1990

It was 5am when the hospital doors burst open. The bright hospital light quickly blinds my mother for a split second as she's being rushed through the hospital to the operating room. The only information anyone knew was that I was being born, early, but born. Although a quick scan told my parents that the fight for my life had just begun.

My Life Story: Part Three

After experiencing numerous issues at my step-dad's house I had decided to move into my dad's house. Along with the move to new new house I also had switched into a new high school. Moving to a new high school is like starting all over again. Everything seems new and very unfamiliar. I was lucky to find that there was no one here that would try to bully me.

My Life Story: Part Two

Among the treatments my parents and I had tried physio was the most physically uncomfortable experience. They had me stretch and move around my muscles to get them working. The part of this that was uncomfortable to me was the fact that they would bend my arms and legs farther then they could physically bend. I would be in pain most of the time that I was there and leave sore. I had stopped physio when there was signs of more discomfort/pain than results.

As a teenager I continued my interests in computers and technology. In high school I had been taking Communication Technology. This was a course showing students basic to intermediate computer applications from word processors to 3d animation software. I was pretty good with the 3d software so that's what I had excelled in in school.

My Life Story: Part One

My birth was very early. I think it was at least a couple of months off. The moment I was born there was no sign of life from me. I didn't have a pulse nor was I breathing. After the procedure I had to be taken away to be put into an incubator for about a week. The doctors taking care of me at the time said that it was very unlikely that I would survive. After I was taken out of the incubator my parents were allowed to take me home for the first time.

Cyber Bullying is Disgusting

Online bullying or cyber bullying is a form of harassment and shouldn't be tolerated anywhere. Whether its on social media sites or apps for a phone or tablet is disrespectful and hurtful. Not just to the intended target but to everyone involved. By sending these harmful messages a person can severely hurt someone emotionally or physically. I think that it's very sneaky and cowardly to hide behind a screen and send out messages to cause harm.

We are people first (Guest post)

We need to be able to say what we feel. We need to be able to talk about the things that bother us; the things that matter, the things that make us sad and the things that make us angry.

We need to be able to say the things that hurt us even if it means us hurting someone else. We need to talk about mental health, which includes depression, even suicide. Mental health is even more serious than physical health, because without our emotions in tact, we’ll struggle to understand our physical symptoms.

Working with a Disability

Over time I have realized that having a disability can seriously affect obtaining a job. This makes earning an income to support myself very difficult. Then I created a blog and started writing from home. It was easy to start up and to keep it going I wrote articles to help others with disabilities. My blog is geared towards collaborating with others so everyone can benefit from it. Over the years I have received useful comments by my readers and great feedback. This is a great way for someone with a disability to work. By helping others you learn a lot more on how to cope and make you life a better place to be in.

The tools I used to get started:

Cooking with a Disability 2

I love to cook my own meals. I find that it tastes better and a healthier solution in comparison to prepackaged food. This way I can put exactly what I want in my meal.
Although, I do have some difficulties preparing some of the food. For example, chopping or slicing vegetables. When doing so I need the use of both of my hands. This can be a
problem because the tremors in my left hand are a lot worse than my right. Cutting or slicing vegetables can be a bit of a task. That's were the use of Medicinal Marijuana
comes in. When my muscles in my hands and arms are more relaxed I can slice/chop my vegetables a lot more easily.

Medicinal Marijuana

Medicinal Marijuana and Cerebral Palsy, in my opinion, go hand in hand. I personally have found that upon using it my life has started to become a little bit easier. For example my typing skills have increased tremendously.

I have found out at a young age that having a disability can be very stressful. Not being able to play and move around like the other kids. And if that wasn’t stressful enough, making friends was even more difficult. This is speaking from my experiences throughout my life.

I'm back!

It has been a few years since I have last wrote for my blog. It’s been a stressful adventure to say the least. The hardest of which is finding out what I want to do as a career. My goal is to one day be able to afford a place of my own. In order to do that I need some sort of job. Many of the jobs around me are very high in physical labor. What I’m currently looking for is some sort of desk job. Something that I can work my way up through the ranks and gain experience on the way. I’m not quite sure why I haven’t started writing sooner.

I am hoping to get back into writing for my blog and getting my site back up and running. I look forward to hearing more feedback from my readers and hope I can still get some attention to my blog. Thank your for your support and I’ll be writing again soon!
