About Me:

Hey there! My name is Annabel. I was born with a form of Cerebral Palsy, called hemiplegia, and a hip condition called DDH. I have had multiple surgeries to try and correct my dislocated hip, including two last month, but these have been unsuccessful. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my hip, and other forms of chronic pain. These are conditions that leave me in constant pain that never go away no matter what I do to treat them.

After finding out that chronic pain was not talked about or heard of very much, I decided to join wikiHow, to share my knowledge and past experiences that I thought may help people out there with the same conditions as me, but also to spread awareness.

I've since written multiple articles about Chronic Pain, Cerebral Palsy, Hemiplegia and DDH.

I'm also a co-author here, sharing my knowledge and helping improve articles with my knowledge and fluency in British Sign Language, so let me know if you need any help in that area! You can learn some simple phrases, colours or numbers, if you'd like!

Since joining wikiHow on 4th August 2017, I have been welcomed into the welcoming and NAB team which I find very rewarding as I know my friendly tone is helping new users find their way around the site. If you have any questions about me, or the wiki, please feel free to leave me a message on my talk page or send me an email.

Comments That Get Me Through on Rough Days

"If only your hip was fluent in BSL, eh?? Okay, that was a bad joke. I shouldn't even send this. Watch as I click Post anyway ;)" - Anna

"Good good - what I liked seeing there most was "Follow Dr's Orders." You be good, even when I'm not here to badger you about it :P" - Anna

“Not a problem! It's the little things that count. You keep up the good work as well, it doesn't always get acknowledge, but it does get noticed =)” Qamar

“You know, sometimes following our own instructions can be the hardest. Be kind to yourself and celebrate the small wins :)” Jayne

Vanilla and Chocolate! Cupcakes!

I have given you some cupcakes! Cupcakes promote wikiLove and hopefully this one has made your day better. You can spread the "wikiLove" by giving someone else some cupcakes, whether it be someone you have had disagreements with in the past or a good friend.
