#nofliter needed... Today I'm literally standing up for myself.
Yes I'm on holiday to see my family but I think i deserve that after the last 16months my family and I have been through!
Today I'm standing up for myself with my stick, I'm not hiding it anymore... just because I have a photo taken doesn't mean it's not within reach or that I am not in pain.
For everyone that has doubted me about my injury, believing that I put it on or that my stammer isn't real i wonder how you would cope with my everyday.
Just because I have a brain injury doesn't mean I'm not allowed to try and have a normal life. My friends push me through everyday and my family are my strength in every way possible. When I can't walk or barely talk like how I feel now , this photo shows me looking like I'm a normal girl, but it doesn't show you how my little brother who is 16 is holding on to me, keeping me up to help me walk to the car.
Please understand that I'm just a normal girl, trying to have a normal life, and trying to battle with a life changing injury. I shouldn't have to justify who I am.
For everyone that has an invisible injury stand up...be strong.. and live for every moment ❤
