Not So Terrible Palsy

4 Years of Not So Terrible Palsy

Happy New Year and happy 4 years of Not So Terrible Palsy, I know, 4 years! Although starting to write a blog was not a New Year’s resolution in 2019, I do enjoy starting the New Year off with a blog. The process of writing motivates me to be more creative for the year ahead…

Georgia the Occupational Therapist or Just Georgia?

Just like that, we’re at the end of the year. This year has been a really big one for me yet, it feels like it’s gone by in the blink of an eye and I feel as though I haven’t appreciated it as much as I should have.  Recently, I’ll be honest, my mental health…

Am I Too Open About My Cerebral Palsy?

I’m always up for a bit of positive disclosure and I am quite open about my disability. Yes, I don’t owe anyone my medical history, but I like to think that as an occupational therapist my experience of disability shapes my practice to add authenticity. As well as also making sure that I am using…

Examples of Occupations That Make up My Disabled Activism

Exploring my Disabled Activism as a Meaningful Occupation

Last week I attended the BAMEOTUK Symposium, and I loved every minute! Although I am a white person I did relate to a lot of what the speakers were saying about activism. This made me think about my activism and activism as a meaningful occupation. I’ve been wanting to write this blog for a while…

At the beginning of the year, I started not only my first…

 My Tramlines 2022 Experience

I’ve never been a festival goer, I enjoy concerts but the idea of a festival as an ambulatory wheelchair user terrifies me. Yet, every year Tramlines tickets go on sale and I’m so tempted but always back out due to my disability related anxiety. Until last summer when I went for it! Tramlines is a…

Am I as Disability Confident as I Think I Am?

As promised I am writing about my confidence in asking for help that I unpicked in my last blog. It’s a bit of a ‘typical’ blog I know, I know. But it is Disability Pride Month after all so if it’s got to be done, what better month to do it in? I always say…
