There's No 'I' in Team

Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is David Di Palma and if I were to describe myself in one word, I would describe myself as ‘Survivor’.

Abuse & Brain Injury Survivor

I’m a complex being. A SURVIVOR of abuse (physical, psychological and sexual), a brain injury SURVIVOR, and an epilepsy SURVIVOR. I’m not a victim but a SURVIVOR.

Surviving takes up the vast majority of my time. My challenges just to function are significant. I’m supported by Claire, Julian and Dipak on a daily basis. Claire, Julian and Dipak are my
Care and Support Workers who support me with every aspect of my personal and professional SURVIVAL STRATEGY. A strategy which is constantly evolving as my circumstances continually change.


Independent Councillor  In my spare time I serve on the respective councils of 
Braunstone Town & Leicester Forest East in the county of Leicestershire.
I’m an Independent Councillor having served different parishes, including Glenfield, 

Braunstone Town and Leicester Forest East since 2011.

Business Owner

Dennis - The blog that blows!

Saturday the 15th February 2020.

It was an early cold and rainy start to the weekend today, as Julian arrived at 8.30am, ready for a weights session at the gym. The gym session was a successful and productive one, as new levels of performance were met. Increased weight for the dumbbell press was achieved, and I felt really energised after this, both mentally and physically.

Storm Dennis was brewing and had an effect on the local residents of Braunstone Town,in particular supermarket shoppers. Trolleys were out of control in the Sainsbury's car park, as shoppers tried to handle the gushing winds (40mph).

In line with continued gym use, the healthy eating regime continues. Fruit and vegetables were on the menu replacing the former chocolate and sweet arsenal. As we left Sainsburys, a gust of wind blew an apple out of my bag, and fortunately, narrowly missed a senior citizen that was approaching.

After the chaos of Storm Dennis, Julian and I finally made it back home. A cup of coffee was well deserved. (lovely!)

One final task was due and that was to compare and select the best energy tariff. We all know that looking at energy tariffs is confusing, and the trust in suppliers, isn't the best. However, from the help of Julian's expertise, we found a deal which was cost efficient and from a supplier, that I felt comfortable in being with.

To summarise, today's events were productive.
Take care all, Until next time!
