#BecauseOfAbleism


Amongst all of the equality posts, media and protests at the moment #becauseofableism ended up trending on Twitter this week.

In some ways it made me happy. I saw many tweets talking about ableism and within in them I could relate. I could read those comments and nod my head, click like and know that people would understand the battle that lives inside a disabled person’s world.

Then it made me sad.

Wrong Focus


I’ve been reflecting more on last year.

I’ve said so many times how hard it was for us.

However, as I said in my last post, hindsight is amazing.

I read an article about how to face problems when you’re a) in a crisis and b) in a “storm".

One of the points raised was whilst you’re in the centre of the storm it is easier to focus on what is coming at you than around you.

What a difference a year makes!


I was chatting to friends about going through periods of “stormy weather".

It made me look back on last year and consider how, in comparison, this lockdown situation doesn’t feel too bad.
