The power of your mind is incredible. We are capable of so much! . I reflected on the word ‘mind’ and I think sometimes we can get “in our heads” too much, which can lead to all sorts of issues. We have lost our animal instinct and the ability to use our #intuition which guides us .

I was born 30 years ago this past Thursday{11/1}. The first photo was the day I left the hospital after I was born(somehow red ink got on this photo) and in the second photo I am 7 months old. Iwas talking with my mom last night, and the day of my birth came up in the conversation. I told her I have been wanting to ask her more about that day so I can share my birth story with the OBPI community. My mom said my birth was so traumatic that she decided then to never have another baby. My parents were so happy to just have me that they did not take legal action against the doctor who delivered me, although they could have/should have, because what the doctor did was covered up and swept under the rug. I am going to talk to my mom more in-depth about this soon so I can do a video and blog post about it. Awareness week has already passed, but there’s no reason not to talk about preventing OBPI more often. 💙 #OBPI #livingwitherbspalsy #erbspalsy #bpistrong #brachialplexusawareness #bpiwarrior

It took me a long time to decide if I should do this video or not. I’ve had a few people contact me asking about sex and relationships, so I decided that it was time. It also occurred to me that if I’m feeling that I CAN’T talk about it, then that’s the reason TO talk about it . I don’t want people to feel that they can’t talk about things, because that’s when it leads to mental health issues. We are lucky to have platforms like this that people can express their thoughts, beliefs and experiences, which helps people thinking that they are not alone . I’m quite open with my experiences and beliefs about sex, but that’s important. Remember that in no way am I trying to force my opinion on you, I’m just talking about experiences and my thoughts. Some will agree and some won’t and that’s ok. I’m not here to cause an argument, I just want to create a platform for people to be able to talk about their beliefs and issues . Anyway, I hope some of it resonates with you and I’d love to hear from you. Please comment and tag someone who may benefit from the video .

So it’s Erbs Palsy awareness week and it’s very important to me to do just that. Raise awareness. Not for sympathy but more-so because not many people understand some of the difficulties faced with an injury such as mine. My injury is minor but there are others out there with much worse. For those people normal every day tasks are a real struggle. So this is a little insight into my injury and what causes it. While I don’t feel sorry for myself or play on this injury, ill openly admit that there isn’t a single day at the gym where I don’t wish I didn’t have this injury. Not because I’m in pain but because I’m a perfectionist and I love training and I love lifting weights and strength training. I genuinely feel that if I wasn’t hindered by this annoying injury I would be able to achieve more in the gym. But in saying that there are many inspirational people that have this injury who have accomplished big big things. It’s definitely my goal to do the same. - - #bpbi #erbs #bpi #erbspalsy #erbspalsyawareness #injury #disability #awareness #health #fitness #grateful #itcouldbeworse #strength #weighttraining #keeppushing #nevergiveup #goals #brachialplexusinjury #bpistrong #brachialplexuspalsy #beatingbpi #bpiwarrior #brachialplexusawareness #erbspalsywarrior #erbspalsylife #bpiawareness #anatomy #birthinjury #bodytunetransformation

This is a clip from a recording session I did with my band Jacklines @jacklinesband a couple of years ago . I was told I’d never play an instrument, but don’t let anyone say you can’t do anything. If you want something bad enough, keep working at it and make it happen . Will I be a rock star? Probably not. Do I love making music? Hell yes! . You don’t have to be rich and famous to be successful. In fact, I think all of that could bring negativity and it’s never what you imagine it to be . Stay true to yourself. Do what you love. Do it because you love it and for no other reason. . Oh, you can check this out on Spotify.

I’m not a runner, but I support the UBPN 5k because it helps a great non profit for those with this injury. My own son was not that big when born (7lb14oz) and yet he suffered a right obpi. If you’re pregnant - talk to your practitioner about the plan in case of shoulder dystocia. #ErbsPalsyAwarenessWeek #BPIWarrior #BPIAwareness #BPI5k #bpistrong

It was lovely too see this sent in by @estherdoggie who said . “Here I am competing at Rockymountain Dance Classic, with my funny left Erbs arm!” . Personally I found dancing really frustrating as I couldn’t move how I wanted. This goes to show that if you want something enough, you can do it . It doesn’t matter how old you are, you can change your thought process. You may have years of “built in” ways of thinking, but take notice of your thoughts and adapt them . I don’t want to you say “you CAN” I want to say “you WILL” . #erbs #erbspalsy #erbspalsyawareness #erbspalsyawarenessweek #brachialplexus #brachialplexusinjury #brachialplexuspalsy #brachialplexusawareness #brachialplexusinjuryawareness #bpistrong #bpiwarrior #beatingbpi #disability #disabilityawareness #dance #dancing

Day 3 of brachial plexus palsy awareness week! Do you know where/what your brachial plexus is? The brachial plexus is a group of nerves that come from the spinal cord in the neck and travel down the arm. These nerves control the muscles of the shoulder, elbow, wrist & hand, as well as provide feeling in the arm. Luke’s injury involves his C5, C6, & C7. Next time you do a common everyday task that involves two hands, stop and try to do it one handed! 💙💪🏻#lukewarren #bpiwarrior #brachialplexusawareness

I’m blown away with the amount of people who have got involved in the #erbspalsyawareness campaign that I started less than a month ago . It all started when I did a post for @yoocandoanything They asked me to hold something #inspiring up, so I chose the photo you see in the middle . In less than a month, over 50 people have done the same thing and it’s incredible to see more people doing it each day in aid of raising awareness . If you also have #erbspalsy #brachialplexusinjury then please do the same thing. Even if you don’t have it yourself, hold it up for someone that does . Remember to tag them and tag me for a repost . Thank you all SO much for getting involved! Here’s to the next 50 🍻🍾 . #erbspalsywarrior #erbs #erbspalsylife #beatingbpi #brachialplexus #brachialplexuspalsy #brachialplexusawareness #bpistrong #bpiwarrior #disability #disabilityawareness #proud #pleased #awareness #birthinjury #birthinjuryawareness @officialubpn @erbspalsygroupuk

Just looking through my photos and I forgot about a little video I put together from when I went #skiing earlier this year with @thesnowclub in #valdifiemme in #italy The #snow was great . I’m not natural on #skiis but I love the sense of #freedom #adventure and the #adrenaline of going down the #slopes even if I’m not going that fast . I never thought I’d ever learn to #ski and for some reason I thought it I wouldn’t be able to do it because of my #erbspalsy as it effects my balance a little and the poles can be a little tricky at times . The first few days were very tricky, but I got there with a lot of help from a friend. I’m now getting more and more confident on the #skislopes I can’t wait to go again. I wish I lived near the #mountains so I could go all of the time . Can anyone else with #erbs ski? If so, how does it effect your skiing? . #erbspalsywarrior #erbspalsylife #adaptiveathlete #bpiwarrior #bpistrong #beatingbpi #brachialplexus #brachialplexusinjury #skiseason

Symptoms of a brachial plexus injury include weakness in one arm, loss of feeling in the arm, and partial/total paralysis of the arm. My son could not move his arm at birth- period. We had to learn different ways to pick him up since we couldn’t put our hands under his armpits to lift him. We also had to learn different positioning for him in order to get adequate tummy time as he got a little older. More about our family tomorrow. . . . #brachialplexus #erbspalsy #erbspalsyawareness #bpistrong #brachialplexusawareness #beatingbpi #bpiwarrior #brachialplexuspalsy #erbs #erbspalsywarrior #adaptiveathlete #youadapt #erbspalsylife #birthinjury #strength #bpiawareness #motivate #inspire

I’ve been meaning to share this for a while. This is @maritio91 working in the #gym and showing us what you can do if you work hard . Having #erbspalsy should not stop us from having a fun and mixed life, doing the things that we want to do . Many of us want to have a “normal looking arm,” so we do all sorts of things to try and make that happen . One piece of advice... learn to love it. Let it define you. Let it make you stronger. Let it make you a better person. Let it help you inspire others. Let it become your individual identity. Let it be a positive talking point. Let it be something you have which changes your life for the better . #beatingbpi #erbspalsyawareness #erbs #bpiwarrior #bpistrong #brachialplexus #brachialplexusinjury #brachialplexusawareness #disability #adaptiveathlete #disabilityawareness

Most brachial plexus injuries that occur in newborns are the result of a difficult delivery, such as with a large baby, a breech presentation, or a prolonged labor. These injuries also may happen when a birth becomes complicated and the person assisting the delivery must deliver the baby quickly. This “panic” usually causes the provider to exert some force to pull the baby from the birth canal. If one side of the baby's neck is stretched, the nerves may also be stretched, and injury may result. Not only was our sweet baby 10 pounds (yes 🤭) but he also got stuck in the birth canal. Since he was stuck everyone hurried to get him out. I remember my husband pushed out of the way, my head of the bed thrown back and a nurse jumped on my stomach. The nurse on my stomach was pushing my son out while the doctor was pulling him out. This means too much force was on my son which most likely contributed to the extent of his injury. So then you have the question of the chicken or the egg? Was his injury caused because he was 10 pounds or was it caused because of the force? Or just the perfect storm? More of our story to come. . . . #brachialplexusinjury #erbspalsy #erbspalsyawareness #brachialplexuspalsy #brachialplexusawareness #bpistrong #beatingbpi #bpiwarrior #momlife #erbspalsywarrior #erbs #erbspalsylife #birthinjury #bpiawareness #mylove #kinesiotape

In most cases of brachial plexus birth palsy, it is the upper nerves that are affected. This is known as Erb's palsy. The infant may not be able to move the shoulder, but may be able to move the fingers. If both the upper and lower nerves are stretched, the condition is usually more severe than just Erb's palsy. This is called a "global," or total, brachial plexus birth palsy. Our baby has Erb’s Palsy and his is considered global because he had injury to the upper and lower nerves in the brachial plexus. He couldn’t move his arm at all when he was born. And all I remember is the nurses picking up his arm and letting it fall. Heart broken. Frightened and helpless is all I felt.

To explain my birth injury more clearly and hopefully raise awareness. The brachial plexus is formed as the nerves to the arm, hand, and fingers pass from the spinal cord, between the bones of the neck (vertebrae) and go into the arm. Along the side of neck, these nerves merge together. From there, they branch out to form a "highway system," or "plexus," of nerves. This system of nerves then travels behind the collarbone (clavicle) and spreads out into the arm. The nerves that go to the shoulder lie higher in the neck than those that travel to the hand and fingers. Nerves that provide feeling to the hand and fingers lie lower in the neck and deep in the armpit. . . . #brachialplexusinjury #erbspalsy #bpistrong #erbspalsyawareness #brachialplexuspalsy #beatingbpi #bpiwarrior #brachialplexusawareness #erbspalsywarrior #erbs #erbspalsylife #bpiawareness #anatomy #birthinjury #physicaltherapy #birthtrauma

The brachial plexus is formed as the nerves to the arm, hand, and fingers pass from the spinal cord, between the bones of the neck (vertebrae) and go into the arm. Along the side of neck, these nerves merge together. From there, they branch out to form a "highway system," or "plexus," of nerves. This system of nerves then travels behind the collarbone (clavicle) and spreads out into the arm. The nerves that go to the shoulder lie higher in the neck than those that travel to the hand and fingers. Nerves that provide feeling to the hand and fingers lie lower in the neck and deep in the armpit. . . . #brachialplexusinjury #erbspalsy #bpistrong #erbspalsyawareness #brachialplexuspalsy #beatingbpi #bpiwarrior #brachialplexusawareness #erbspalsywarrior #erbs #erbspalsylife #bpiawareness #anatomy #birthinjury #physicaltherapy #birthtrauma

Erb's palsy is a form of brachial plexus palsy. It is named for one of the doctors who first described this condition, Wilhelm Erb. The brachial plexus (BRAY-key-el PLEK-sis) is a network of nerves near the neck that give rise to all the nerves of the arm. These nerves provide movement and feeling to the shoulder, arm, hand, and fingers. Palsy means weakness, and brachial plexus birth palsy causes arm weakness and loss of motion. One or two of every 1,000 babies have this condition. (Which means it is considered rare) It is often caused when an infant's neck is stretched to the side during a difficult delivery. Most infants with brachial plexus birth palsy will recover both movement and feeling in the affected arm, often with daily physical therapy exercises. Parents play an active role in helping their child recover maximum function in the affected arm. My sweet boy suffered this birth injury and it is my goal in life to bring awareness and decrease the number of babies suffering from this trauma. More of our story in the days to come. . . . #brachialplexusinjury #erbspalsy #bpistrong #erbspalsyawareness #brachialplexuspalsy #beatingbpi #bpiwarrior #erbspalsywarrior #erbs #brachialplexusawareness #erbspalsylife #ourstory #bpiawareness #birthinjury #strong #kinesiotape
