I am BLOWN AWAY by the messages and comment i have received over the past four days about the video i posted on Friday - Do you want to be a young carer? In case you missed it here ya go...


I saw this trend on Tic Tok where people become teen moms and post their pregnancy and the kids growing up, a lot of the videos were hitting back at people who were coming at the young girls in a negative way and how they rose to the challenge and love their kid. I thought hell i could do that about daddy. I may have given up a lot over the years looking after dad, but i wouldn't change it for the world. If anything if i could do it again, i would probably want to do more, or try harder. I never would have imagined that this video would have 2.3k views on Facebook... According to Facebook, it has reached 5,158 people. WHAT!! So, today i wanted to share a post about motivation, and how it is more important than ever to stay motivated and positive, we need to stay positive and keep going through this difficult time. You guys, comment on my posts, send messages on Facebook or Instagram and constantly reach out. These messages and comments are constantly thanking me, telling how much you love my pages/ me and sending me love and prayers. I honestly don't know what i have done to deserve all this love, i sit at a computer and type up my life, i share pictures and try to be my most positive self. Believe it im not a happy little leprechaun all the time, i can lose my shit too! Maybe next time i do, ill video it, trust me you'll get a right laugh at it!! All my OG followers know that i started #Imnotdrunk because dad was humiliated one day, honestly, i don't think he actually realised what was happening thank god, but it did happen. I decided the world needed to be educated more on what it was like to be a young carer, and along with that educate them on Huntington's Disease. Just because someone makes a nasty thoughtless comment it does not mean they are narrow-minded or a prick, it just means they are uneducated on the topic. That's okay, did you know what Huntington's Disease was before it entered your life? I mean, they don't understand, they have never heard of HD before or whatever the condition is. Don't lose your shite, take the time and explain, take the time and tell them what it is, give them a website where they can find out more if they would like to. NOW... If they are still being a little twat! Then feel free to f&%^K them right off, i know i have sometimes.!! ๐•Š๐•ฅ๐• ๐•ฃ๐•ช ๐•‹๐•š๐•ž๐•– - Let's say Mary organised a fundraiser, and John came up to her and said that HD wasn't a thing, and asked her to explain it. So Mary did this, explained Huntington's Disease and that her family members were affected by it and have even passed from it. Well... This man still didn't believe it and thought it was all a lie and badgered poor Mary. John needs to be straightened out!! Anyway, back to the point of this post, my wonderful family, friends, HD community and strangers i have never met but feel like we have known for years. ๐’ฏ๐ป๐’œ๐’ฉ๐’ฆ ๐’ด๐’ช๐’ฐ... Because of you, i can keep going, this year will be #Imnotdrunk's 4th birthday, i can't believe how much it has grown, but at the same time its still small enough for me to manage. This blog is not about getting the likes and shares and getting my name out there, to be honest when i was in America in summer 19, i was so overwhelmed that people knew who i was or new my blog when they heard the name or saw my T-Shirt. -I spent a solid hour crying on the phone to my mum! Why i have no idea!! Soooo... I know its a super difficult time at the minute, but you need to stay motivated and look after yourself, Everyone hurts sometimes or find themselves in a dark place and feel like the world is against them. It may hurt at the time, but you need to do something. Do something with your life and fall in love with who you are and your life again. We're so confident that tomorrow is waiting for us, the same as today. In reality, you donโ€™t even know if youโ€™re going to wake up or what will happen, imagine a defective gene possibly working against you... My life got flipped upside down when i was 14, and several times over the years... Whatโ€™s that saying, if you want to make God laugh, tell him your planโ€ฆ Wellโ€ฆ You did wake up this morning, so let us make a change, let's make ourselves happy. No one else is going to do it for you. What made me happy, in my life was when I removed the things and people who were no longer making me happy. I am talking about Instagram and Facebook here people. We have become so obsessed with people on Tic Tok and other social media that were no longer living our own life. We now get bullied and do not even know our bully. You break away from that, and you have no idea the impact it will make. You watch 15 seconds of someoneโ€™s life on social media and you think you have them all figured out. You think they have a perfect life. Everyone struggles, no one is immune to it. I struggle, although I am sure my social media makes it look like I do not. Many people in this world do not believe in you and will try to shoot you down, but they canโ€™t, no one can if you donโ€™t let him. While you're worried about people believing in you, why don't you just focus on believing in yourself? Lots of Love Ash
