An introduction to me, my arthritis journey, how I found my voice and why I've taken to YouTube to raise awareness of arthritis, autoimmune disease and chronic illness.
In this video, Joel shares his advice and tips for those diagnosed with arthritis.
In this video, I talk about a recent experience with a chest infection whilst immunosuppressed on biologics. I remind you why it's important that we educate ourselves about the medicines we take for our chronic illnesses and the one thing you need to know when on biologic therapy.
Does your invisible illness ever make you feel like a fraud? We have a special guest as the wonderful Amy joins us to talk about her Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis journey, the awareness she is raising to change future experiences and how it influenced her decision to train as an Occupational Therapist.
Sometimes, you must prune your support network as your health journey evolves. Remove those that have a negative impact or don't help you live with chronic illness and embrace those that lift you up through the tough times.
Why continuing to do the things you enjoy even when you are unable to work is essential to your recovery and wellbeing - despite the pressure from society (and our own guilt) not to. In this clip, I talk about how advocacy and awareness are my therapy and trying to make changes for those that follow, gets me safely through to tomorrow.
In this video, I check in to remind you that your mental health is part of your chronic illness, how it is important to understand and find what keeps you healthy and to introduce you to our new four-legged family member and our plans for future content.
