I thought of doing a post about this last couple of weeks what is it like being a wheelchair as I’ve been in a wheelchair from 2 years old, as I got Cerebral Palsy – SpasticDiplegia . I have a love and hate relationship for being in a wheelchair for nearly 23 years, I do have fun times also bad times too. I have fell out many times and would laugh it off but people in public seem to worry think i’ll need to get checked out but really all I have bruises and small cuts.
I want to mainly to talk about the questions I would get asked by people when I go out in the public
‘is it fun being in a wheelchair?’
‘i wish i was able to sit down not having walk anywhere’
‘ can you have sex even though your legs don’t work?’
‘can you not feel your legs?
I don’t mind kids asking me as they don’t understand as their young but with teenagers and adults, duh how stupid they can be really be as their billion of people in the world have disabilities there are visible and invisible ones.
We all can have sex, we just do it in different ways as we all humans have needs and there are disabled parents out there too.
It isn’t always fun being in a wheelchair as when there repairs doing to them you are likely to be housebound or needing somebody to help them. It easier for you to walk without hassle. It can be so frustrating not able to go anywhere independently. It nice you get free parking space if you have a permit.
One thing it really pisses me off when people stare at me like I’m the only one they ever seen when their a billion of people in the world
been in a right rant mood recently I thought I do a post on this as it’s really powerful.

I hope you all had a great christmas and a new year.
It has been a good few months last time I’ve posted as my mental health haven’t been the best. I had a bad time recently as my manual wheelchair castor came off which I only had it for less than 6 months, still waiting for it to be repaired especially with it being the festive period, the joys being a wheelchair user.
I found out last month somebody I love dearly got cancer, It was hard to accept it first but i will support somebody to kick cancer arse. I’m going to apply the Manchester Half Marathon which is in October. I always wanted to do a marathon since I was 11 year old and do it for a good cause Macmillan Cancer Support or Cancer Research UK. I will defiantly will be using my manual often when its repaired and get my arm strength stronger for the marathon.
I haven’t thought about any new year resolutions as I know for a fact I will fail them all, but I know It be another year focusing on myself, make healthy choices (from tomorrow), exercise more often, try my best to think positive (I struggle with this), hopefully i will start physio some point and hopefully I’ll pass my maths and english in summer time.
I had good few memories in 2017 I will never forget –
My unicorn tattoo
Beauty and the Beast tattoo
When I dressed as Belle for Halloween
Went to Liverpool in September to meet my Idol Tess Holliday (pictures in my last post)
I travelled to London on my own it was a great experience
Went to see my 2 of my relatives from Birmingham in August with my Dad and sister
I’m really hoping I will do more blog posts, videos and more travelling this year as I’m still young trying to live my life independently.
I hope you all have a safe and peaceful 2018 also don’t give up on your dreams.
Sorry I haven’t posted a blog in over two months as I keep telling myself to do it I end up not bothering, finally I made the effort to do a update and what I have been doing over the summer.
Well I can say the weather hasn’t been the best in UK this year but I’ve done few things over the summer. I’ve got a new manual chair which I wanted for years as its easier for me and everyone else to push around, got a unicorn tattoo, went to Manchester comic con, went to London and went to visit some relatives in Birmingham.
Here some photos;
It was great day to see my Grandad after so long, it feels so good to be a part of a family and not feeling like a black sheep 🙂
I went London on my own as I was meant to meet a friend but things got cancelled for a good reason, but it was a good experience and something different than what I’m used to.
Hoping to go Liverpool in less than two weeks to meet one of my idols which I met nearly 2 years ago. Tess Holliday is a inspirational to me but the last year I’ve knocked my confidence not feeling comfortable in my own skin, I know I never be a skinny girl I just want to able to accept me who I am again.
I will try to blog more often and find other stuff to talk about, I really hope you like my latest post and thanks for reading.
It has been a good few weeks the last time I wrote a blog post. Well I can say I’ve been busy playing on my PS4 especially on grand theft auto and just dance (helping me to get exercise in my life).
Normally I would do my blog posts on my IPad, somehow it got robbed as UK had a really hot day 3 weeks ago and I was out for the day but I forgot I’ve left my bedroom window opened too also my old laptop got stolen too, I had to buy a new one which I’m lucky I got the money to get one.
Anyways I don’t want to bore you as I’m meant to tell why I want to lose weight. Well I always had a weight problem even when I was a kid. I love food too much, who doesn’t? To be honest I’ve been trying to keep it off for last 2 and half years since I’ve got diagnosed with diabetes type 2 as it runs in my mothers side of family, I don’t need metformin to control it since march 2016 as I done my best to change my eating habits also I have to go for a every 6 months blood test to check hows everything.
Well it has been a struggle to keep it off as last year I had really bad depression as I put weight back on, been trying to stick on diet since mid January this year. It has been like a rollercoaster but I’m so determined to lose more weight as I’m going away to Benidorm in November which I want to be a UK size 14. I’m nearly getting back to a UK size 16, that where I was a year ago.
Right now I’m trying to control my calories and do exercises like doing just dance and going swimming also sometimes push around a bit my manual chair, that’s why I got a fitbit so I can track my calories.
Really want to able love my body and accept the fact I’m not a size 8 but I will have some chubbiness on my body as my goal is to be a UK size 12-14.
One day there will be somebody will accept me for who I am, I just need to focus on myself at the moment.
I really needed to talk about this as UK had one of the worst massacre in history especially it happened in Manchester as I live 20 minutes away. All the young people who went to see their idol Ariana grande on Monday night it should have been one of their best nights of their life.
It has took 22 young innocent lives away when they had their life ahead of them , it’s upsetting knowing they should have gone home to their families safely and talking about how much they enjoyed the night. It’s heartbreaking knowing somebody would want to kill young victims for anger when they done nothing wrong.
Seriously there so much hate in the world it’s unreal I do wish there was peace, no wars and no revenge. Power causes problems.
As 2017 the world should be amazing place to live but there so much hate and evilness especially it has been going on for 1000s & 1000s years
R.I.P to the young people have lost their lives in a horrible attack
Also hope the ones are injuried will recover.
It was amazing to see people from the UK and greater Manchester actually helped and support everyone
I can say I’m proud to be from greater Manchester even thought it can be a shithole at times but it’s our home end of the day ❤️🇬🇧🙏 With love,
I’m writing a review on skinny bakery, I’ve ordered a few things from them for the first time. Oh my god there soooo yummy absolute guilt free.
I end up eating all the flapjacks as there only 202 calories, I love flapjacks I haven’t had one in years as there so much sugar in them the skinny flapjacks are healthier, less sugar and fat. Definitely recommended to get those again.
I enjoyed them all tried one each from the picture, I really need to every single one from skinny bakery it so guilt free to have also it may be expensive it is worth the money 😄
