Being healthy with a disability.

We just kept rollin’

I had the pleasure of being a guest on the Just Keep Rollin’ podcast. We talked a lot about being healthy with a disability.

I, along with the hosts of the podcast, Chris and Cat, all have Osteogenesis Imperfecta. Each of us has a different type of O.I. However, we all relate to this topic of getting and staying healthy even though we have a disability.

Being healthy AND disabled

This topic is of utmost importance to me in my life. I’ve worked hard to figure out how to embrace my disability to get and stay healthy. It is a joy to share my experiences with others who have the same disability as me and anyone who might need to hear the message!

I’ve found that many of us with disabilities think that we don’t, or can’t, ever be healthy because we are already at a disadvantage due to our disability.

This couldn’t be further from the truth!

Encouraging the thought that WE DESERVE TO BE HEALTHY, TOO, even with our disability, it’s exciting. Seeing the shift in mindset and attitude that occurs for people of all ages and limitations is a rush.

Those limitations seem to disappear and that’s what it’s all about!

Chris and Cat as the hosts

This episode was so much fun to record with Chris and Cat. They are open and honest about how they feel and their questions were right on point for the topics we discussed.

I love to see my fellow O.I.ers, and anyone with a disability, share their story and also help to shine the light on others so they can share their stories as well.

This is one of the main focuses of my #OILife channel!

We also talked about Star Wars, so listen to the episode here and be sure to check out the show with the link provided below the episode.

And don’t forget to check out the other great blog posts and guest appearances I’ve made on other podcasts on the blog here.

A quick intro to everything Tony...

Tony is the author of Disable Your Disability, a book about learning how to live the healthy life you deserve despite your physical limitations. He was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (brittle bones) and has endured 70+ fractures throughout his life. At the ripe young age of 42, he had to embrace his disability to save his life, so against all odds, pushed himself through an 8-month physical transformation that ended up being just as important mentally and emotionally.

Tony also loves music. He’s been an emcee and DJ since the mid-80’s and has DJ’d professionally since 1996 (and continues to do so!). He’s created and released independent hip hop music, and found most of his success when he and his wife, Teemaree, released 3 albums as Dynamite Jive in the early 2000’s.

In addition to all this, Tony has worked professionally in the television/film industry since 2001, and created his own company, Egg Sandwich Media, to work as a one-man-production-band; wearing the hat of Producer all the way to Video Editor.

He currently lives in Detroit, MI with his wife and they enjoy their empty-nester life in the desert.
