I am a writer with a chronic illness living in Bendigo, Central Victoria.  I have always enjoyed writing but since developing a chronic illness I have started to explore it as a form of activism. Through my writing I hope to explore how I can accept my own, changed(ing) identity and hope to encourage other people to be less afraid of illness and disease and to more be accepting and inclusive of those of us who don’t fit the dominant paradigm. The writing I share here will be on topics such as identity, illness, disability, transformative change and acceptance.
