After a long hard think, and after making a really difficult decision I have decided to let people know what’s been going on.
As some of you may be aware my son has Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) as well as traits of Autism, along with my non-visible disabilities we were struggling to keep our heads above water and overwhelmed by difficulties. Eventually I had to leave my job to become a full time carer for him as neither of us were coping in the situation we were in.
To help myself cope with the drastic change I started writing/creating music in awareness of mental health and how the pandemic has majorly affected not just my mental health, but so many others around us.
Please listen and enjoy this music I have created for anyone and everyone to listen too, to try and help others that are going through a similar situation. Thank you for all your support-it means a lot.
The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. One in seven of the world’s population suffer from neurological conditions with over 600 types, including; Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) should be renamed ‘Inconsistent Attention & Internal Hyperactivity’ (IAIH).
Why? ‘Because it is not a decifit of attention, but rather a problem with regulating one’s attention span to desired tasks.’ – Healthline.com
ADHD: Below is a list of some of the enhanced qualities and abilities that exceed those naturally found in non-neurotypical people and some famous celebrities including; Michael Jordan, Jamie Oilver, Will.i.am, Emma Watson, Bill Gates, Paris Hilton & Albert Einstein.
Business leaders need to have the courage, the strength, the resilience to bounce back from Covid-19.
Gobal leaders need to be motivated by the job itself to do a good job; their first priority in business is to act on humanity and the second priority is to make money.
Larry Bird quoted – “Don’t let winning make you soft. Don’t let losing make you quiet. Don’t let your teammates down in any situation.”
Our world is changing and Covid-19 and other chronic diseases will impact our lives forever. Covid-19 is like another disease and are rising in numbers. It is caused by what we do to the environment; driven by today’s lifestyle. We need to rise together to protect life on earth from destruction, global pandemics, deforestation, bad governance, corruption, nuclear war, political and economic systems.
I am optimistic that social and behavioural changes will come from this.

I just learned today that this week is Invisible Illness Awareness week. It’s all about spreading the word to those who don’t quite understand what invisible illness is or what it’s like to be chronically ill with it. I shared this link tonight on Facebook from The Mighty with all my friends and family on […]

“People who don’t see you every day have a hard time understanding how on some days–good days–you can run three miles, but can barely walk across the parking lot on other days,’ [my mom] said quietly.”
I have created a link to the Invisible Illness board to share important pins because it can happen to you….We are all in this together♡

“You don’t have to struggle in silence. You can be un-silent. You can live well with a mental health condition, as long as you open up to somebody about it, because it’s really important you share your experience with people so that you can get the help that you need.” — Demi Lovato
I thought I would post the comparison between the normal person’s Pandemic Life vs. My Disabled Life… currently. Because there are similarities and differences.
The same with a normal person’s experience with COVID-19 and having to stay at home with the stress, anxiety and rapid changes in their lives
How my experience being disabled is similar to the Pandemic Life
I have lost my job to being disabled, So Many have been laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I remember what that felt like. And I remember all the emotions and fear and anxiety that comes with that.
I went on disability and many are going on the Canadian EI package (Canada Emergency Response Benefit) to supply income… and both of us are aware of income instability. This doesn’t match our actual income (Mine more so, obviously, since it is less than 2000 a month)- This…
