Hi everyone, I'm Michelle, 24 years old and from LLiverpool.
I was born with CP (Spastic Diplegia) around 6 years age I become servely depressed and began to have panic attacks, 6 years on I'm finally starting to try and get my life back on track. I eventually would love to run my own bussinuss or support group for people with CP as I know how isolating it can see at times anyway early this week I started my own blog about living with Cerebral Palsy which hopefully will help me on my journey to raising awareness so please all check it out as I would love others opinions and support! www.seemenotcp@wordpress.com if I can help even one person I'll be very pleased :) c

    Wow, amazing blog, I particularly like where you say....... " So what I’m trying to say is ‘ ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE ‘ So no matter what you want too achieve weather it be weight loss or something completely different.. DO IT! Your disability should NOT define you or your dreams!" You have achieved loads, and you should be very proud yourself, thank you so much for sharing your story on the Scope Forum, I'm sure your blog will help lot of people. Certainly very inspirational. Maybe the next motivational speaker?

    I really think you will make an excellent motivational speaker. Your blog is really excellent, very well written and real first hand experience which counts for a lot. Well done for starting the driving lessons again. Maybe something else to look into is DET (disability equality trainer) or maybe consultancy of some kind. I'm sure some good opportunities will come your way.
