I didn't like to think too far ahead, however I was determined to make something of my life. Thanks to amazing support at Primary School and later at College I made it through my A levels and to University. Sadly University turned out to be very similar to senior school - something of a non event, big promises of support but failure to follow through. Again let down by a system that failed in their duty of care, failed to provide accessibility or inclusion and enough really is enough. Enough fighting, of feeling anxious, misunderstood, unimportant time to move on…

Over the years I have become more and more anxious in and around London. I live about 40 minutes away from the city in a small town.

I’ve been asked about my “Daith Piercing” by so many people I decided a blog of 'my experience' might be useful, so here goes:  Just over three months ago I began to seriously consider getting a daith piercing as I'd read several articles that suggested it may help prevent migraine.  If you've read my blogs you’ll know I have Ushers syndrome, a form of deafblindness, where the blindness is progressive due to a rare genetic condition called Retinitus Pigmentosa.  For me the progression in sight loss was very fast, I became registered blind within 2 years and today get by…

I thought it fitting that my first blog of 2016 should be an update on "My Applewatch Experience" after 8 months and to mention the project set up to fund it for others. I’ve read lots of posts about applewatch, some very technical, some good and some bad. For me it has been more personal, more about accessibility and inclusivity and how it has changed my life, enhanced it in ways I didn't believe to be possible. Who would have thought a watch could bring independence, aid mobilty, reduce isolation and along with it confidence. In my first blog http://www.mollywatt.com/blog/entry/my-apple-watch-after-5-days I talked…
