I have a number of health conditions including dyspraxia, epilepsy and also suffer from hemiplegic migraines.
When I was 11 years old I had a stroke, and to this day I experience weakness down the left side of my body.
At school, I was bullied quite a bit. The kids used to shine a light in my eyes because they knew I had epilepsy. Nobody really took my conditions seriously.
My Fixers project is a poster campaign aiming to raise more awareness about invisible illnesses like mine in a bid to increase understanding.
Just because you can’t see someone’s illness doesn’t mean it’s not there.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
