Day 239


People fear what they don’t understand and hate what they can’t conquer. – Andrew Smith

It’s 8: 03 PM on day 239 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a polony sandwich for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – no luck – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, watch TV, feed myself grapes for dinner and continue reading A Purloined Life – the first of two books in Stella Cameron‘s Charmed.

A couple of weeks ago somebody sent me a tweet which read what’s cp? and shortly after I replied back telling her what it was she sent me another tweet saying something along the lines of oh I thought it was chronic pancreatitis I admire your attitude to which I couldn’t help but laugh anyway the reason I recounted that conversation was just to show you how uneducated some people were – and still are – about Cerebral Palsy and to share with you this wonderful video:


Are we connecting on Twitter? If not, say hi at http://twitter.com/Nisha360

if you’ve given to my cause or you can’t give now, please help me by sharing my cause with others. You can tweet about it like my friend Stan Faryna. This is the tweet he uses: @Nisha360 is a brave, smart young woman trying to make a better world for us all. Please help her do an amazing thing. http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/nisha-varghese/nishavarghese

Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.

Thanks to all my friends out there who are helping me make my dream come true: to make a better world for all of us!
