About Me πŸŒ™

Catherine [Cat/ Kitty/ Cathy].

30-ish (shush!), Irish, disability blogger. "Baby cripple"/ mini cripple, as becoming disabled was gradual for me and I'm still getting used to seeing myself as such. Part of the wave of the disabled community who wish to take term "cripple" back and use it as a positive.

☔ Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (hEDS)
☔ Hip Dysplasia (untreated at birth)
☔ Dysautonomia
☔ Hiatal Hernia/ GERD
...And counting.

Blogging about my journey of diagnosis and doctors and all that lark. Oh and pissed off rants... mainly pissed off rants -because no matter what other inspiring websites and blogs tell you, being disabled (in any way) fecking sucks... In December 2013 I was also diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, cancer of the lymph nodes -yayness. Currently all clear.

Proud momma to three fur-babies: Tubby (cat) and Emily and Louis (the dogs) ...and I know everyone says this on these types of blogs, but my partner (known as "Bicky" on here) is pretty patient, caring and generally an all-round swell guy, so ta to him. Scup de Bicky! (As we say in this part of Ireland).

Youth worker, although unable to work. Volunteer suicide intervention officer. Founder of #IrishPainies - chronic pain support group.

I've started a petition over on Uplift for an Irish EDS consultant. CLICK HERE TO SIGN

I also love to paint and sew for charitable cause over at my side project, KittyLovesTeddies. Check out the Etsy shop too. Cute, kitsch and creepy delights.
