Welcome and just a little about me

Hi there and welcome to my wheel life,

The following is a bit about the reasons behind this blog. I do hope you enjoy it and I look forward to hearing from you at anytime.

Disability posing as either mental or physical limitations is so much easier shared and supported by each other.

Life is definitely not how I planned it. My family and I have faced many changes, challenges and not so typical scenarios as I adapt to living with a rare, degenerative condition-Adult Onset Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy. The onset of physical limitations that are changing my abled body to my disabled body.

Harnessing the powers of the cyber world I hope to reach out to those in similar situations to provide some degree of comfort and belonging for us all. To all our able bodied brethren I hope to provide insight and understanding for unusual, rare and degenerative conditions such as my Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy.

Greater understanding is power in any circumstance.

With Leanne’s Wheel Life I hope to, in some small way, add to the many voices of advocacy for inclusivity, awareness and empathy for everyone and their individual circumstance.

Since my diagnosis of Adult Onset Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD) at age 42 I have become more reflective and observant of many aspects of life; more aware of things of that I simply took for granted or, honestly, just had never noticed or thought about.

I wish to share with you my real stories including adaptation, family life, travelling and reviews . I would like us to share tips, tricks, new ideas and anecdotes of our collective life journey’s  – yours and mine. Your participation in the narrative with your experiences, opinions and feedback will ensure that this is a truly valuable blog for us all.

Whether you have, know or love someone with physical limitations or are experiencing a new chapter in your life for any unexpected reason, or just because you live in a world where big changes are a reality – I would like to share this blog with you .

I invite you to subscribe anytime to receive each blog as I post and would love the chance for us to chat together about all these issues and more.

I look forward to our conversations,
