A good life (honestly!) with Multiple Sclerosis…

 

I work (for now), I love, I live, I have fun. Just with wheelchairs and drugs and spasms and stuff...

Style, Stigma and Spin – A New Podcast

If you know anything about my (lack of) fashion sense, you’ll be as bewildered as I am that I’m virtual friends with a guru making news and waves in the area of Adaptive, Inclusive Clothing. Which is also stylish. And sustainably produced. And she has seen pics of me. And still talks to me and everything… We recorded a podcast together. Victoria laughs at my jokes and everything! https://anchor.fm/disabilityatthetable/episodes/Style–Stigma-and-Spin-e17ri0n Must get out a blog. Very soon.

Let me in! (To your website and your Comms).A new Podcast…

Woohoo, here we go with our launch proper! After an introductory episode presented by our glorious leader Sudha Singh and me as guest, I now assume the hot seat. Dive in here if no need for my babble:  https://anchor.fm/disabilityatthetable OR: https://www.prca.org.uk/Disability-at-the-Table Now I’m your cliché disabled person. Middle-aged, creaking round in a wheelchair. Sleeping a lot. But the world of disabled people is rich and diverse and I hope to show you that. Every guest will, I hope, surprise you a little. And thought-provoke you a lot. And always, always bear in mind that circa 20% of the population are disabled in some way. They are your customers, your employees. And if not, why not? My first guest is Jonathan Hassell. […]

A very handsome chap is on a patio, arms wide open and a celebratory look on his face. He is in a Wheelchair Rugby Chair. He's wearing shorts, a white shirt with multicolour shoulder area. And a ridiculous Mohican dyed rusty orange.

How I Found My Exercise Mojo Again

Mark Webb is starring in the latest ‘We Are Undefeatable’ ad campaign – to encourage people with long-term health conditions to get active. [A Guest Blog for the http://MSSociety.org.uk ] He tells us about his journey to becoming a ‘hunk in one bicep’… Pre-diagnosis Once upon a time, I was a high flying school rugby captain and a sporty all-rounder. Then a flashy ski rep living the high life in the Swiss Alps. Then not so long ago but still a distant memory, I worked for a health and fitness brand. Every Saturday I’d be sweating away in the gym and in spin classes. I’d complete an annual triathlon and swim at least twice a week. But something wasn’t right. I would […]

Disability@TheTable: The Podcast You Never Knew You Wanted

[A guest blog I wrote for the PRCA https://prca.org.uk  , our worldwide PR body. Click here to skip past my nonsense and listen to the podcast:  https://www.prca.org.uk/Disability-at-the-Table.]   What do we want? Real change in Diversity! When do we want it? Now! Yeah, right. More work to be done. Launch day is upon us. Finally I can proudly confirm I’m helping lead the charge – or in my case the slow, creaky wheelchair roll – with the PRCA’s shiny new ‘Equity & Inclusion Advisory Council.’ (EIAC). I’m the lead in the Disability workstream. As such, I’ll be pushing hard for disability to figure in every Diversity & Inclusion conversation. We’re not there yet, despite our community being comfortably the largest […]
