What is it like to be physically disabled and how I changed my life?

Health issues can dominate your life; the cure, for anything is always good news and therefore you become positive about news instead of afraid of what could be said. For example earthquakes happening, a news story that does seem like the end of the world, considering there is no escape from them. The imagery shown does seem also to solidify a fear of nature and the possibilities that God is in a mood such as anger.

What is it like to be physically disabled

The want of faith instead of religion is an understanding of how those in command of saying , are letting some people down with their lack of knowledge. So your learning becomes an art-form such as cubism, and your ability to be aware is the senses knowing a danger is more in your direct view. Falling down could be more dangerous than otherwise normally thought as. A heightening of awareness has the downside of being in the minority as your language becomes a self leaning. The shyness becomes a strong factor to consider your raising and hence a writer may evolve.

I have learned that the biggest disability any of may ever face is our own attitudes. When my health took a turn for the worse, I found myself facing yet another disability, and this one has taken me from a strong man, able to do a hard day’s work, in six months, to a man hobbled by pain, and unable to walk unassisted. I thought I was open-minded about people with disabilities before, but now, having found myself facing challenges in every area of my daily life, I am gaining whole new respect for those who went before me, paving the way with their strength and determination. For people with disabilities, support coordination is required.


A story of Iain and I live in the North-east of Scotland. I suffer from Cerebral Palsy. I used the elbow crutches/wheelchair for my mobility. I was fiercely independent; lived on my own, loved driving, studying higher education with the Open University and generally enjoying life. My life dramatically changed in June 2017 following a silly accident while getting out of bed. Now I have become severely disabled and am physically unable to do anything for myself and must rely on carers, in the supported housing complex where I live, to do everything for me. I am now in an electric wheelchair all the time. I had to give up my house as I could no longer live independently, as I need a lot of care, and cannot drive anymore. 10 Seconds That Changed My Life by Iain M MacLeod is a book, I wrote, and tells the story from when I woke on that June morning to my discharge from the fourth hospital some eleven months later.
It is available on Amazon as an Ebook, paperback, hardback and audiobook.
