Together, let's end the stigma.
I remember when I started to open up about my feelings over the last 2 years, and it truly feels like a weight off my shoulders.
I had counselling as a child but I didn't like it and was really reluctant to try it again as an adult, but somehow it was different this time and I've finally felt relief in talking through the things running through my mind.
Sure, it may not fix my problems, but being able to be open up about how I'm feeling and knowing I'm NOT alone, has been really reassuring to me. I have always internalised my feelings, which then turns to self distruction, so being able to untangle the mess inside my head by talking with friends/family/you guys has really helped me.
I try to be transparent, especially on social media, and although I'm not always as positive as I hope to be, I know it's OK to feel what I'm feeling and so I try not to hide that.
There are things going on in my life that I don't discuss on social media, things that 99% of people around me no nothing about. But there are things that I am comfortable to discuss now and I'm happy to have those conversations with you guys.
So I'd like to finish off by saying, we have the biggest box of teas, and an open door if you want to hang out. For those of you a little further a field, my dms are always open.
I encourage you to have these conversations with your friends/family, but if you're not comfortable with that just yet, then to consider counselling or support groups.
Wishing you all love, light and happiness... ☺️
Today I said goodbye to my first car 'Kio' the Qashqai @nissan
I've travelled up and down the country, and around Europe with this beast! So many great memories and thankful to have had a great car to start my journey of independence on the road. Anyone else got sad when they said goodbye to their first car?! 🙃🚘

You don’t know what someone is going through behind closed doors. They might have the biggest smile on their face and laugh so loud, but there could still be a great level of indescribable hurt deep inside of them. So be kind. Even when others aren’t, choose to be kind... 🤟🏽
I love to goof around with you.
I love to dream big with you.
I love to laugh with you.
I love to get creative with you.
I love to cry with you.
I love to go on adventures with you.
I love to smile with you.
I love to realise how blessed I am to have you in my life, every single day... 😘
I love YOU!
Ich liebe dich!
Jeg Elsker Deg! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
As I was born with my disability, it’s the only life I have ever known. I knew I was different to other kids growing up, but it wasn’t till recent years that I’ve truly learned to embrace my differences.
People have treated me as if I wasn’t really there, like they wanted nothing to do with me. Perhaps that’s because they were anxious and they didn’t know how to react to a person with a disability. But disabled people are beautiful, fashionable, talented, intelligent, funny, and FABULOUS! This is my one life, and I’m proud of what I have achieved so far. You should be proud of you too. Show the world what you’ve got... ❤️

If you’re in the UK you might be familiar with this already. For those of you further a field, this is an ident that I and a handful of other great wheelchair racers did with @channel4 📺 I am at the front in my blue racing chair...
One of the great things about being apart of this and working with @channel4 is that they are so passionate about supporting people to build great futures in the media industry, people from all backgrounds and walks of life... ♿️⚡️ #bluelightning
When Lizzie met Rain:
Last weekend I jumped on a train and sat in a pub in London with my new friend @raindovemodel
We talked, and talked, and talked. They had so many questions, and I had so many questions. And I couldn't tell you enough how refreshing it was to to share with a person so passionate, inquisitive and respectful of this planet and those on it. As a disabled and LGBTQ+ individual, there have been many disheartening moments in my life as society siezes to give me the opportunity to succeed.
I have so many dreams, goals, experiences, and thoughts that I am passionately curious to see take shape.
If every experience in my life until now has taught me anything, it's that I've had to rely on my imagination to believe in possibilities. Our imagination can be a huge tool in breaking down the borders in our lives. We can do anything. We can be anything. It's believing in that change we want, the dreams that we all have, and by facing our fears head on that allow us to live our lives beyond our limit. Watch me do just that🤘🏽
