About Me

Recent Picture Of MeMy name is Bethany, I'm 24 and I suffer from several invisible chronic illnesses. What's that I hear you say? Well, an invisible illness is one that doesn't necessarily have symptoms that are always obvious to another person like extreme fatigue, even though these symptoms sometimes or always inhibit daily life. Chronic illness is when a condition is long lasting, usually more than 3 months. 

I have Fibromyalgia, PCOS, Depression and Anxiety. None are considered rare, in fact, 1 in 4 people will suffer from mental illness at some point in their life. However, this doesn't make the illness any less life-changing. This blog is a place for me to write personally and also offer; advice, help, support and hopefully some laughs and reviews along the way. 

Personal Information 
I live in Surrey and I'm the eldest of 5 siblings, 4 girls and 1 boy. My fiance, James, and I have been together since 2013, we're getting married in 2019. He also suffers from chronic illnesses, his being quite rare. I am studying part-time at the Open University to eventually work in the mental health sector. 
I am an advocate for both mental health and disability talking openly about both.
I love to read, write, play video games, watch rugby or football, see my friends, (I have about 2!) and go for walks.
