Between bad CP nights and a flare up in my anxiety I’ve been having a lot of sleepness nights.
It’s not all bad though. Yes, it’s annoying sleeping late into the morning instead, but I’ve noticed there are a few positive things to come out of it.
1. I’m reading loads
2. I’m listening to a lot of music and adding more stuff to my writing playlist
3. I usually get writing ideas as I’m trying to go to sleep.
4. I tend to do physio when I’m having a bad cerebral palsy night or just struggling to sleep
I’ll admit that when I started writing this post I thought there were a lot more of them than I’ve listed here, but they all count.
Even though I use a walking frame or wheelchair, some of you probably know that I walk around my house unaided, and hold onto walls and cupboards and various other household objects as I need to.
(Believe me, I will grab hold of just about anything close to me to avoid falling over if I need to. I cringe when I think back to how many times I latched on to poor, unsuspecting strangers when I used to walk around the supermarket without help as a kid.)
I wouldn’t say I could find my way around my house with my eyes closed (I tried it once, panicked and fell over – shocker) but I feel safe wandering around it.
Hello and welcome to Fun Fact Friday, the place where I share facts about myself that aren’t linked to my cerebral palsy.
You all probably know by now that I love to read, but I have been in a massive reading slump for months now. It feels like none of the books I pick up grab my attention and I give up on most of them half way through. I’ve tired going to the library, but I bring books home and the same things happen, or I don’t touch them at all. I’ve selected books to get rid of and bought new ones. Nothing seems to be working and I don’t like it. I think I’ve finished maybe three books in the last three months or so.
Anyway, while the long day’s reading may have been good for my mood because I think I’m finally out of the massive reading reading slump I’ve been in, it probably wasn’t so good for me on a cerebral palsy level.
Some of you may have gathered by now that I love to read, so this week I’m going to tell you all what my favourite book is.
It’s My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult. I fell in love with this book when I first read it while I was still in highschool. I cried for ages after I’d read it. I still haven’t watched the movie though.
That’s all for now folks, I’m off to make a cup of tea and dive into the book I’m currently reading. At the time of writing this post it’s Lisey’s Story by Stephen king.
