Hello,

I am a gentleman with a physical disability, cerebral palsy.

I have been a DJ since 2006 on and off - I stream on Twitch every week for 4 days. It also helps my mental health, the world today is so depressing.

I hope that what I do spreads awareness and inspires everyone to do what they want even though they might not think they can - I put the possible in impossible. When I was born, I was only given 24 hours to live (due to lack of oxygen to the brain), thankfully they were wrong, as 48 years later, I'm still here!

I even get messages and comments about how I'm an inspiration (I understand some dislike that phrase), which does make me humble, some messages bring a tear to my eye.

If you like electronic music, feel free to search my DJ name on Google to read all about me.

Regards,

PalsyP aka DJ Palsy P

    It's fantastic that you've managed to find a passion in DJing. I'll try and remember you search you up a bit later on.

    We have quite a few music fans on the community, so I'm sure they'd like to hear about your experiences of being a DJ and streaming on Twitch!

    Hello and welcome @PalsyP thanks for sharing a bit about yourself.

    I'm glad streaming on Twitch is having such a positive impact on your mental health, and that you get to showcase your passion too :)

    I hope you find the community and welcoming and supportive as the experiences you've described on Twitch, if we can help with anything just say. 

    Enjoy your weekend!
