Young activist Sophie blogs about life as a student & campaigner with chronic illness

‘I wanted to start this blog to share aspects of my life – studying with chronic illness; campaigns & activism; maybe an occasional book or musical review. I hope that it is a way for me to show healthy people some of the parts of chronic illness that they wouldn’t normally see. Education is a truly powerful tool: by learning about illness and how it affects people, you can better support them. Above all else, writing has always been an incredibly cathartic process for me, and sharing what I write feels like a natural next step.’
