Hi! I’m David,

Putting the world to rights and thoughts on Lifestyle, Hidden Disabilities & Mental Health, plus much more.

Hello, my name is David Di Palma.

I am in my fifties and have always felt like I do not belong in any specifically defined group. I have often asked myself 'Where do I belong?'

We are all unique, do not allow anyone to tell you otherwise.

I wouldn’t consider myself as normal, how does one define ‘normal’?

I am certainly a ‘conformist’ in respect of following and abiding with the law.

I stand up for what I believe in & support others less fortunate than myself.

I write, I do not expect everyone to neither agree nor disagree with my views, but, if our views differ, I will reasonably expect you to respect my views as I would yours.
I would not consider myself a professional writer, I am sure I have made many mistakes within my published works, but I have published three books to date, (August 2022), I have made sales, the first sales being in 2006 and I am writing more books.

I am artistic in other ways too; I believe in Freedom Of Expression regardless of the format one is using to express oneself. I do not expect others to neither like nor understand my art, but to respect ones art, as I would yours.  

I consider myself a ‘Lateral Thinker’.

I am a survivor, as you are. We are all survivors in different contexts.

Having become bored with Social Media platforms in respect of advertising my work and providing you with an insight into my complex disability, a lifelong disability that requires 24hr support. I have Care & Support Workers staff to assist me wih all of my needs. I decided to create my own unique website. This website is also a memory aid to assist me with my memory issues, memory issues are just one element of my disability.  My aim is to inspire you, If I can do it, you can too.

If you have any questions, please do get in touch.

My name is David Di Palma, I am a Survivor & Proud.
