I am often left hospital-bound by invisible illnesses that leave me exhausted and in extreme pain.
With my Fixers project I want to challenge people’s perception of disability and show that just because you can’t see someone’s illness, it doesn’t mean it’s not there.
I have lived with ME and Fibromyalgia since I was nine and I am fed up with people doubting that I am unwell.
As a keen photographer I am putting together a photography exhibition to try to create more compassion for people living with invisible illnesses.
I hope my project will encourage others to be less judgemental of people that suffer from conditions that are not visible.
Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
