Gimp's Journey's "The good, bad and the ugly"

H'mmm .... so who am i? Well, the basic stats are: I'm a 35 yr old "Gimp" with Cerebral Palsy and I use a power wheelchair.

Right from the start let me tell you my basic philosophy towards disability. I accept it, embrace it fully as a huge part of myself and what has shaped me into who I am. Disability IS part of me but it is not ALL of who I am. We may not always choose the things that happen to us but we CAN change our attitudes, thoughts and beliefs about them. Attitude is ...

Disability IS part of me but it is not ALL of who I am. We may not always choose the things that happen to us but we CAN change our attitudes, thoughts and beliefs about them.

I am extremely passionate and committed and if i make a flippant remark to lighten the situation it is not due to lack of empathy or insight it simply means... " I don't know how the heck I'm gonna get outta this one ... so in the meantime I may as well laugh."

Feel free to drop me a line if anything I have said here strikes a cord and you feel the need to chat me up.

Life is a Journey not a destination.

Why not join in my 5 or 10 minutes Daily Exercise on going and win a Goodie at the end of the week for doing your exercise. It isn't set in concrete you do what you can minutes wise as long as it is at least 5 minutes and is appropriate to that exercise each day. Would love to see you with the rest
