Book review 

Hello,

I have just finished the following book which I really enjoyed.

I especially enjoyed some of the drawings sent in by the younger viewers.

I have always enjoyed the content of the programme and had no idea how much work goes into a programme like this.


Take care,

Organ Donation

Hi everyone,

This is a post I have wanted to share for a while now.

Early in March 2003 I recieved my gift of life, a kidney transplant. I am very lucky. This was the third attempt as the previous two I was not well enough to go ahead with the surgery. Please bear in mind I was a four year old at the time. Key hole surgery had not been found at this time, meaning I have a very large scar across my stomach. My AMAZING donor, my dad, has a large scar from the middle of his back to his stomach.

Organ donation saved my lfe. Before the transplant I was hooked up to a large machiene three times a week. This cleaned out my system which is what my kidney’s should have been doing but they had a very very low function level.

This process would wipe me out. On the days I was not hooked up I would do very little as I had no energy.

At the begining of this month I worked out that this all happened fifteen years ago.

To stop my body seeing this kidney as something foreign I have to take a few different medcations every day  for the rest of my life. Between that and being very unwell and in hospital for the rest of my life I will keep going with the meds.

Did you know one person can save at least eight lives but change the lives of more than fifty people.

All major religions in the U.S. support organ donation.

Donors can still have open casket funerals, and organ donation doesn’t cost the donor’s family any money.

If a person is hospitalized, the medical staff provides the best possible care, regardless of organ donor status. Donation is only considered after a patient has died.

 

 

It is easy to sign up and takes less than five minutes. You could save a life! We need more organ doners.

I hope this has inspired you to sign up.

Take care,

New washi tapes 

Hello,

So I love craft tapes they make my journal look amazing.

I recently found All Things Washi.

It would have been really easy for me to spend all my money here. 

Here is a of the ones I chose.


From the point of order to the date I received them was very fast.

Even the packaging was beautiful. I will be ordering from here again.

Let me know what you order.

Take a look 

Hey, 

So I watched Britain’s Got Talent tonight and really enjoyed watching this and as a disabled person I really enjoyed the humour. 

Let me know what you think?

Book review 

Hello,

I recently finished Am I Normal Yet by Holly Bourne.


I laughed, cried, shouted and whimpered at this book. It showed the truth about OCD. I wanted to finish it as quickly as possible but also wanted to read it forever. It’s been a while since I have had a book that I felt like that. 

I am glad this is the first of a trilogy as I can’t wait to read the others. 

I could relate to some of her thought patterns and anxiety in many ways and especially her fear of trying to be normal and not ending up in a bad state again.

I would read this over and over again. 

If you read it or have read it what are your thoughts on it?

Take care, 

Dolphin xx

Please help if you can 

Hey,

So a close friend of mine has been having a difficult time over the last few years and now her mobility is getting worse. She has always been a great person to be around and I really hope this new chair will make her independent and happy again. Please help if you can. Even just sharing the post will help.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and if you are able to donate please do.

Up until I was 9 years of age I was the type of child that would want to be on the move 24/7. My main objective was scaring my parents to death with all my sporting activities and mischief. However, at the age of 9 my world changed. This is when I became disabled. My disability was no-ones fault, it was just one of those things.

For the last 10 and a half years I have lived with a neurological condition which has left me with many problems, including bladder problems, impaired sight and becoming a neurological paraplegic. The newest of all the problems has been becoming semi-paralysed in my left arm. Though doctors are still baffled by what my disability is or what caused it, over the years the illness has been stable and then gotten worse and then become stable again. There have been many tests and investigations…
