Hello and happy Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month 2023! I can’t believe it 2 months since I’ve posted a blog! Recently, life has got pretty hectic therefore, I have a lot of goals I need to set. Goal setting works for me. Yet, I realised most of my goals were about work which are needed and will… Continue reading Managing My A-Z Occupations With Cerebral Palsy!
As a student occupational therapist I am always reflecting and here are some reflections I wanted to share about my life as a disabled OT student.
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… Continue reading 4 Years of Not So Terrible Palsy
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… Continue reading Georgia the Occupational Therapist or Just Georgia?
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… Continue reading Am I Too Open About My Cerebral Palsy?
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… Continue reading Exploring my Disabled Activism as a Meaningful Occupation

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… Continue reading Am I as Disability Confident as I Think I Am?
A Year Into Being an OT With CP
It’s been a while, at one point I was debating if they’d be a blog at all this month! The thought of not posting a blog for more than a month does not sit well with me. Therefore I thought why do not a general life update seen as it’s a year since I finished… Continue reading A Year Into Being an OT With CP
How My Personality Is Shaped by My Disability
My disability is who I am, I am not trying to overcome my disability nor I am trying to define my disability as it certainly defines me. I am an occupational therapist, blogger and activist all because I am disabled so to say that my disability doesn’t define me would be a lie. My disability… Continue reading How My Personality Is Shaped by My Disability
Using My Blog Purposely With Cerebral Palsy
In my last post I touched upon disrupting, what that actually means and exploring the power of a blog when disrupting. This made me think about blogging as an occupation. Of course, as occupational therapists we all know about creativity, writing, by extension blogging and how meaningful this can be. When I first started blogging… Continue reading Using My Blog Purposely With Cerebral Palsy
