Welcome to my blog


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

I intend my postings to be an honest account of my life with a disability (in my case, Parkinson's disease), while offering examples of how I coped with the various physical and mental challenges of being disabled. I also want to go further and explore the meaning and implications of disability; what does it mean to be disabled, is it possible to live alongside a chronic disease, why is prejudice against disability absurd, why is understanding and empathy so important, how can thinking impact a physical disability and why is our reaction to what is happening crucial?

I hope you will be inspired, challenged and helped by my writing.


  1. I have really enjoyed reading your blog. It does challenge me because some are very philosophical. You are obviously very intelligent and I just wanted you to know that your writing is appreciated.

  2. I am looking forward to reading your blog. II also have a blog about my husband Parkinson's, if of interest http://hiyaitsfiona.blog.co.uk/

  3. Thank you for sharing. Keep writing!
