Being chronically ill isn’t glamorous.
My medical conditions DO NOT define me. I am still a human being, as are you. Except, you’re not living life with debilitating conditions.
My wheelchair DOES NOT mean I have to sit on the sidelines and I refuse to be labelled as ‘unable’ because of it. Why? Because my wheelchair has given me a whole new lease of life; my chair allows me to go out and lead the life I choose.
Do you think I WANT to miss out on invitations? Whether that be an invite to a birthday party or just to go into town and grab some lunch. We all need a certain level of human interaction…
I DO NOT enjoy this life. I DO NOT like the endless amount of hospital appointments. I DO NOT like missing out on activities. I WANT to be a normal 20 year old; but it’s not physically possible.

Since being told that I have several chronic illnesses, my life has dramatically changed.
I’ve learnt who my true friends are.
I’m constantly dealing with deteriorating health.
I spend the majority of my time at home. Either in pain, unable to move or asleep.
CHRONIC ILLNESS HAS TAKEN OVER MY LIFE
