I have now set up two separate blogs for my two personal campaigns. Once I start getting more money from this blog I can look at upgrading the blog accounts so that they can hopefully make some money on their own.
I know it is a big task maintaining 3 blogs but you know what, I am up for the challenge. I hope you all follow my other two blogs which you can get the links off of my various pages.
Yeay I just created my first disability awareness update on MailChimp yeay Update here

It starts with a question. Just one question. It isn’t even a tough question, its easy. Do you want to know what that question is? Well, the question is: How are you doing today?
How simple does that seem to you? Yet many people believe that it is such a difficult question to ask. People who have disabilities do not need you to delve into the nitty gritty but just the simple act of asking how you are doing can mean a lot.
For me, when I am having a tough day I often feel like I want to curl up in bed and shut the world out. There are times I want to shut down and honestly feel like disappearing. Many people see this and just ignore it. They put the onus on me to reach out and that is something that I just am unable to do. Just someone asking how I am doing would be enough for me to actually say, I am not doing so good but thank you for asking.
When you have a disability it is very hard to reach out. You always feel like you shouldn’t reach out because you have to be the same as everyone else but having a good support network around you is always really important. Find your support network so that you do not always feel alone.
So, I have just heard that Ryan air has caused problems for an autistic child. Seriously angry about this because as an Autistic woman who has been treated poorly by an airline I know how stressful it can be. The fact that they are passing the buck to the airport is disgusting. If the Ryanair people were not to fault why did they not find a way to get them home.
From my own experience, I know that the airlines work with the airports for all their passengers and if one fails they all fail.
Ryanair needs to apologize and the people who laid hands on him need to make sure that their staff training is better…much better. I am never EVER going to fly with Ryanair.
There are people out there who believe the above is true. It is not. Having a disability simply means that you have something that makes you different. For me I have 4 disabilities ranging from physical to developmental. I do not see it as a bad thing. I see it as a reason to push myself. I always push myself to my absolute limit because that way no one can bad mouth me or indeed tell me that what I accomplish is anything less than awesome. Whether this is as simple as being able to hoover my room or getting a promotion. All victories are received and dealt with the same way 🙂 and that is with excitement.
Disability is not a dirty word and anyone who makes you feel less then you are because of your disability is not worth the time of day x
Today I have felt empowered. My mum brought a new hover. She paid £500 for it and I used it for the first time today. It is the first time in tears that I have been able to hover anything. The old hoover we had meant that I have to stop every 2 minutes, sit down, and rest for 10. This one I was able to hover my entire room in one go and not need a break… #Invincible
