March is known as CEREBRAL PALSY AWARENESS MONTH, so I think now is a perfect time to explain in detail the message around this month, and to also let you all know that I am now at a point in my life where I am so comfortable and happy enough to embrace my disabilities. It is fair to say that I have not always felt this way, over the past few years I have been stupidly worrying too much about what other people think, about the way I walk, and to the point that it was really getting me down, and also about my speech, I had come to hate the way I speak over the past few years, but all of this is about to change, because during these lockdowns I have had the chance to really shake myself down and to start learning how to love myself again, if you can’t love the person who you really are, it is fair to say you will find yourself increasingly not being able to accept yourself, and most importantly not being able to accept others, which is the wholehearted story my children’s book ‘Max And The Magic Wish’ portrays, and more than ever I cannot wait to get out there and physically show everyone that the best way is to #alwaysbeyou.
CEREBRAL PALSY AWARENESS MONTH is an opportunity for organisations, charities, and individuals to raise awareness about the condition and bring forward more information about this complex neurological condition.
Here is the link to the NHS website where you can find out more surrounding the diagnosis and treatments for cerebral palsy:- https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/cerebral-palsy/.
So now this gives me the opportunity to thank each one of you for all the overwhelming support so far for my children’s book ‘Max And The Magic Wish.’ To know that the book is really start to make a difference in the lives of so many families is so heart-warming, there is so much more to come, which will all be revealed soon, but until then, Max And The Magic Wish is available on Amazon:-
