Introduction to: Disabled Representation Tips & Reviews

Originally, I had planned for this to be a My Nugget of Wisdom for the Week post recommending black, disabled bloggers and YouTubers to do my part in supporting the current movement. However, I was shocked to find how little of them there were out there, or at least how hard they were to find.Continue reading “Introduction to: Disabled Representation Tips & Reviews”

How the Kids at School React to My Disability

School life is tough for someone like me, so one thing that I like to do to help me cope is to sort the teens at school into different categories based on how they react to me and my disability. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not judging any of them: I’m a rather shy personContinue reading “How the Kids at School React to My Disability”

Accepting New Changes in My Life

Ever since I was a child, I’ve been able to go up and down the stairs in our house by myself. Whether it was by climbing up the staircase like it was a mountain (which I used to do when I was younger and was still able to walk), or by going up backwards onContinue reading “Accepting New Changes in My Life”

‘My Journey’ Part 2.5: Budding Passions and Early Friendships

(This is the second part of the post I released yesterday) On the other hand, my social life at this age was going well – I was just starting to find myself and discover my talents: My mother was a teacher, so every day I had to stay extra hours at the school after itContinue reading “‘My Journey’ Part 2.5: Budding Passions and Early Friendships”

‘My Journey’ Part 2: The Realisation that I’m Disabled

Group 5 (age 7-8) was a big year for me. So big that I decided to split this section of the series into two parts; one which I’m releasing today about the progression of my disease and the other about my social life at the time which I’ll share tomorrow. Group 5 was the yearContinue reading “‘My Journey’ Part 2: The Realisation that I’m Disabled”

A Superhero-Themed Surprise Party

Like I said last week, Wednesday was my birthday. To be honest, I didn’t expect much: the day started like any other. My friends did send me some nice midnight happy birthday messages and my sister sang to me when I got up in the morning, but other than that I had breakfast and startedContinue reading “A Superhero-Themed Surprise Party”

‘My Journey’ Part 1: The Diagnosis and Early Years

This is the first post in a six-part series I plan on releasing about ‘my journey’ from the diagnosis of my disease when I was a baby up until where I am now with my disability. In-between each ‘journey’ post I’ll release one of my usual ones before continuing with the series. This is ‘myContinue reading “‘My Journey’ Part 1: The Diagnosis and Early Years”

Disabled Superheroes!!!

Nothing gets me crazier than superheroes. While others in my family are known for being ‘the literature ones’ I’m known as ‘the superhero one’. I’m never as popular with my family or friends as when we’re watching a superhero film because they know I’ll give them all the comic book facts and explain the comicContinue reading “Disabled Superheroes!!!”

My 6 Tips About Staring

Admittedly, it’s difficult to give my advice on staring at disabled people because it’s hard not to mix up my own negative personal experiences regarding staring with general advice which can apply to everyone. A part of me wants to say: ‘Don’t stare, it makes whoever you are staring at feel awful,’ but I knowContinue reading “My 6 Tips About Staring”

Weight-Loss Scare

Around two years ago, during the Summer of 2018, I experienced some trouble regarding weight loss and my self-image: I mentioned in my previous post that I used to go to Scouts for disabled children when I was younger. Some of the children there were overweight and therefore too heavy to lift, so the staffContinue reading “Weight-Loss Scare”
