News On Wheels...

News On Wheels is an iniativie set up by Blake Leitch who is trying to encourage 'disability journalism'. This would involve disabled people writing content about current issues or offering advice to others in a similar position to themselves. You can find out more about Blake's initiative by checking out his website: News On Wheels and we'll feature more about our involvement with Blake's project soon!

Paralympic 4 - Channel 4 HQ, broadcasters of the Paralympics Games.

Although everyone is a bit blue about the Olympics finishing we still have the paralympics to look forward to, which starts tomorrow!

I've been sporting my 'over abled' t-shirt courtesy of Channel 4 and the Paralympic Games.

I'll definitely be supporting Team GB in the Paralympic Games and I'm certain that London will host a brilliant show. Soon there will be a new blog post up thanks to Becki who is taking part in the Opening Ceremony tomorrow, she'll share her emotions of being involved and her own personal story - good luck for tomorrow Becki!

With our technical issues sorted, our blog is back up and running with new posts up every Friday!

This week we have a special feature about Without A Diagnosis.

I know that many of you can relate to the uncertain scenario of not having a diagnosis for your condition (it took me 16 years to be diagnosed!). After frequent trips to the hospital either us or are loved ones are still left with questions unanswered about our unknown conditions. "Is there a cure?" "What can I do to help?" and most important of all.. "what is wrong with me?".

This documentary by Kat Williams showcases families in need and what help is available out there for them. Most importantly of all, it helps to raise awareness about invisible conditions and how important a diagnosis is when trying to cope and comprehend with your condition.

Now that's enough from me... I'll let the documentary do the talking...
