July 4/16
Back from an extended absence unfortunately, I'm not as slim as I was in that picture. 6 Years of a metabolism altering medication AND overeating and I'm 30-35 pounds heavier. Not looking to "diet" per se so I like the scale better, I just want to fuel my body well enough it has the tools it needs AND stop that number rising anymore! If it lowers then that is a bonus!

H'mmm .... so who am i? Well, the basic stats are: I'm a 38 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 everything, when things aren't going according to plan you can count on my sense of humour rearing her sometimes "ugly" head. 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.
