A personal story (an extra newsletter)

On chronic illness and invisible disability

Dear readers,

Apologies for sending out a second newsletter so soon after the last. This is a very short extra post. I just wanted to draw your attention to something I've written about chronic illness. It's the most personal thing I've ever written. It took me about 18 months or more. I was chipping away at it and then sitting on it. I couldn't really decide whether to proceed with it. Then I thought that if I had the right venue, I might be able to part with the article. Fortunately the wonderful Big Issue North agreed to publish it.

If you feel comfortable doing so, it would be great if you could read and consider sharing the piece with anyone you think might be interested or affected.

The piece is entirely open access on the Big Issue North website and you can read it here.

Many thanks,
