Hi, my name is Artynixx!

edited May 2022 in Start here and say hello!

I am severely disabled by Cerebral Palsy but this doesn’t stop my drive to live life to the maximum. 

I had been writing my autobiography for a long time but never had a long period of time to dedicate to this project.

When the pandemic lock downs hit in 2020, I decided to put this time to good use and get the first part of my autobiography written.


I use the same communication program as Professor Stephen Hawking used to.. The only part of me that works really well are my feet.. Basically it takes me a long time to write anything,


I am pleased to say, my autobiography, Independence is a state of mind, was published August 2021!! 

I hope the book helps people see that non-verbal, disabled people are able to achieve their aspirations given the right help and encouragement.

    Hello @Artynixx

    Welcome to the community, and thank you for sharing your book, it's great that you were finally able to get the project finished. I guess one of the plus points of the pandemic was that it gave many people a chance to probe away at their backlog of tasks. 


    I hope to see you getting involved more around the community. This is a very supportive and welcoming site to be a part of so I’m hopeful that you’ll find it to be a positive outlet. Feel free to have a look around and get involved wherever you’d like 😊 A few notable pages I’d recommend visiting would be:

    • The virtual coffee lounge which is one of our categories, in which we play games and talk about general subjects such as hobbies and interests
    • The recent discussions page, which shows an overview of everything happening across the community
    • The categories page, which shows a full list of discussion groups on the community

    If you have any questions at all then don’t hesitate to ask.
