My writing elsewhere

Hi folks! I’ve been a busy little beaver writing for other sources (I have a lot to say!). I’m pleased to announce today I had a piece on the intersection of gender and disability published today on Adios Barbie, called: The Trauma of Not Being Seen: Invisible Disability and Modern Day Hysteria. I’m sure there are plenty of female spoonies who can relate to being treated like a hysterical, fainting 19th century stereotype by their supposedly 21st-century doctors.

The Mighty was also good enough to repost one of my blog articles about gaslighting as We Cannot Continue to Let Doctors ‘Gaslight’ Chronic Illness Patients. I am pleased to be able to spread the word about the abuse I’ve experienced at the hands of the medical profession in the hopes that it will make it less likely to happen in the future.

  1. I was recently gaslighted by a specialist and it’s an increasing issue for me because there is a general misunderstanding of my illness. So many hugs to you. My hope is that your amazing and well-written articles change the minds of health professionals and how they treat people with chronic illness. I am so grateful that you are writing them. ❤ ❤ Thank you.


  2. Wow I just found you through your guest blog on Living with Bob. Your experiences really resonated with me. I’ve been writing now for the last 6 months and funny enough just wrote a post on my own doctor experiences these last two years. I’m a relative neighbour too in Ocean Grove! Hello!!


    1. Hello neighbour! I just had a read of your blog, the way doctors dismissed you was appalling. Especially that young GP! What is it with young GPs fresh out of med school thinking the sun shines out of their asses?! Glad to meet a fellow chronic illness / South West blogger.


Thanks for dropping by! I read and value each and every comment you leave. Constructive criticism is welcome.
