I never realised just how possible it was to be so in-tune with your body until I became a quadriplegic.
After sustaining my spinal cord injury I was quickly put on a ridiculous amount of medications for pain, for muscle spasms, for bladder control, for sleep, for just about anything and every thing you could think of.
I cannot even begin to explain how magical it feels to be one of the nominees for this incredible award. There were a few seconds there when I found out that my name is on the list alongside such inspiring women.
It may be winter here in Australia and as cold as it is its still time to put down the remote control, turn off the iPad, and pop your mobile phone on airplane mode..
Rug up, fill up the thermas with a nice warm drink and go and play outside. Your body and your mind will thank you for it. Hibernation is not the answer and it will not make summer come any faster and it also won’t make the next season of Game of Thrones come around any sooner. Sorry folks!
Having a spinal cord injury means my body is constantly fighting with its self, and then theres my stubbornness that is pushing my body to do things that someone with my injury shouldn’t technically be able to do, so lets just say my health is my number one priority as it should be everyones! I suffer with low immunity, and chronic fatigue because of my injury so to keep me functioning at an optimal level, I try to fill my body up with as much goodness as possible and that starts as soon as I wake up.
