Welcome | Cazbarr | Disability Blogger talks about life with a disability!

Black decorative line with swirl in the center

Hey there, I’m Cazbarr.  I was born with a rare disability called Arthrogryposis. My disability has not prevented me from doing the things I love.  In fact, it has done the complete opposite, it’s made me passionate about my life, the things I have achieved and aim to achieve.  This passion inspired me to create my website Cazbarr, where I talk about my disability, how it affects me on a daily basis and all the trials and tribulations that go along with living with a disability. 

My blogs are mostly about my daily trials and tribulations with a few consumer product & service reviews thrown in.  Oh, you may find a couple of holiday reviews too.  Can’t wait for when we can all start to travel again safely! 

When I’m not blogging, I volunteer for Disability Horizons as their Partnership Manager.  I also volunteer for another charity called Ruils.  I am also the chairperson and organiser of my wheelchair service user group at Queen Mary’s hospital, Roehampton.  (If you are a patient of the wheelchair service and you would like to be a part of our user group, helping us shape the service, please do get in touch).

Shaw Academy is an online learning company.  My husband signed up with them as they were offering a 4-week FREE trial.  He found out the hard way that SA lie about their 4-week FREE trial.  It simply doesn’t exist!

There is a Facebook page dedicated to all the customers that have been scammed by Saw Academy.

My experience of trying to renew my broadband contract was a nightmare, to say the least!  Something that should have been a simple task, turned into a week of frustration, lies and terrible customer service.

I have my tv package with Sky and my broadband with Virgin.  My broadband contract was due to expire, so I contacted both Sky & Virgin to see who was offering the best deal……

I wear two hearing aids due to my deafness.  Subtitles are very important to me, so at the end of a hard, tiring day when all I want to do is chill out for an hour and watch a bit of TV and I find a programme I wish to watch has no subtitles, I’m going to be mad!

As mentioned, I have my TV service from Sky, they are one of the worst at supplying subtitles.
