8 of the coolest podcasts right now.
Firstly, big apologies for the shonky  layout of this post. My blogging app on the iPad has crashed (and burned) and then it was huge work editing on the mac. Sorry. Editing is the worst. Last week I brought you  six excellent podcasts about chronic illness...

What if I asked you whether you can have sex?
Many think it's always necessary for disabled people or people with facial differences to take every opportunity to educate. Curiosity doesn't need to be satisfied. People forget their manners when talking to me and others with disabilities and facial diffe...

Tim McCallum on The Voice Australia. Have a think about why you think someone with a disability inspirational.
When Jessie J cried upon hearing 34 year old Tim McCallum's performance of Nessun Dorma on The Voice last Tuesday night, I immediately thought of Stella Young's stance on inspiration porn. You know, disabled people applauded for doing ordinary things. Like ...

Poster children for disability charities.
  Lilith Black*, 37, feels forgotten by disability support providers, and does not get that support she was promoting as a poster child for a large Victorian disability organisation. She tells me wistfully that she was treated like a rockstar as a child, bu...

Fangirl.
It was almost two years ago that I saw Tavi Gevison speak at the Melbourne Writers Festival . She was 17 at the time, and had equal amounts of wisdom and immaturity. I wrote about it here. Her words about fandom have stuck with me all this time. Being an av...

I wrote a poem.
It's a new year and as I wrote last week , I just want to write. I used to write poetry in my late teens and early twenties. There are spiral bound books full of scribbled teenage dreams in my wardrobe. They were mostly about boys who broke my heart. Really...

Travelling with Ichthyosis (and other medical conditions).
>>http://carlyfindlay.blogspot.com.au/2015/08/travelling-with-ichthyosis-and-other.html
I realised that just like with daily life, travel is not going to be comfortable every day. It's definitely a period of getting out of routine and comfort zones (like showering in a public airport shower - never thought I'd do that but so glad I did as I was comfortable for my longhaul flights!), and my skin changed with the cabin pressure, various outside temperatures and busy schedule. But I couldn't let Ichthyosis stop me. I want to see the world!

Five ways I manage my Ichthyosis in winter.
It's been a bitterly cold winter in Melbourne (and much of the East and South of Australia) this year. Winter weather started in May - so we've had a good two months of cold already, with two months to go! Brr! I really like the cold, but this year, I am ha...

My unborn child has inspired me to think about disability and genetics and the value of a life.
I wrote this for the Amazing Babes event at the Emerging Writers Festival. Gosh I was nervous about reading it out. I cried when I read it to Adam (and so did he). And I choked up on stage. And I was scared about publishing it. Because these issues aren't d...
