Press Interview - METRO

I was interviewed by the Metro as part of their "You Don't Look Sick" series, which highlights a different invisible condition each week. The aim is to raise awareness of the fact that not all disabilities are visible, in the hope that people will be treated with more respect when they're going about their day, using disabled services etc.

Article - THE MIGHTY

I wrote a piece on an analogy for life with chronic illness. First featured on my blog, then published on The Mighty. This article was also shared via their social media. I was comparing chronic illness to living within an unsafe home with the aim of creating a metaphor that the healthy could relate to. "My body is my home. It's my only home. And I don't feel safe in here"

Article - METRO

I wrote a commissioned piece on the language being used around Coronavirus survivors - should we be calling them fighters? And what does this imply for those that unfortunately died from the condition? The piece discusses the war analogies that are often used around illness and the impact it has on sufferers and their loved ones.
