About

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, and broaches other topics such as feminism and my bisexuality 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 @WheelsofSteer on Twitter!
