I was born in 1996 in Bradford, England, but didn’t become disabled until I was 14 years old; I contracted viral meningitis, which eventually resulted in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Since then, I have also been diagnosed with endometriosis, asthma, and depression.
My blog is a biographical look at disability in the 21st Century, often discussing my work in medical research and as a co-chair of the university’s Disability, Accessibility, and Mental Health Staff Network, and broaches other topics such as feminism, bisexuality, and being non-binary to highlight the impact of intersectionalities on my life.
Diary of a Disabled Person was set up as a means to communicate social issues to a wide audience with both humour and compassion. I write, record, and design all the content you see on the website, and have a strong social media presence too; follow @diaryofadisabledperson on Facebook and Instagram, and @WheelerDax on Twitter!
