My Page Billboard

I got severe ME/CFS about 17 years ago which left me completely bed bound for a while, I couldnt even often get myself to the toilet and due to lack of support, my young child had to become my carer. 

This condition has given me over 90 different medical symptoms and conditions from my body not being able to regulate my BP properly or my heartbeat on postural change, to messing up so many of my hormones, to vitamin deficiencies to sensitivities to chemicals and foods etc etc. 

I nowdays are basically homebound as cant leave my house without a support worker by my side and need a wheelchair for shopping (actually that takes having two support workers with me as I cant push myself in the wheelchair). 

This extreme and often severe illness which is hugely discriminated against thou many with ME are severely disabled by the disease.  It's a disease insurance companies have made sure lays half buried as it can keep a person as disabled as an AIDS patient 2 weeks before death for the rest of ones life but usually without shortening lifespan much. 

Due to this Im big on Disability Advocacy esp of this illness and others which are much misunderstood or unknown, and of non discrimination of those who are disabled.

May this world one day be one in which all discrimination will cease!!
