The Pillow Fort Magazine Article

Hey guys! Just a quick post to say I hope you enjoyed my last video, and I'm going to be uploading another one this Sunday, so you can look forward to that.

I recently wrote an article for The Pillow Magazine and I figured some of you might like to check it out. This bi-monthly magazine is an online publication written by and for young people living with chronic, long-term illnesses. It's amazingly positive and upbeat (and has some great recipes in it!) and I'm so pleased that I get to be a part of it.

Some of you might not know that I suffer from a couple of illnesses - I'm fairly open about it, but if it doesn't come up, it doesn't come up. I'm more or less okay as long as I take a lot of tablets to keep things under control, but it's nice to be a part of a community that is so friendly and inspiring when I'm having a particularly bad day, or being able to cheer people up when they're having their own down moments. The article I contributed this month is called 'Illness and The Working Girl' and it discusses the issues that can arise when communicating with employers regarding long-term illnesses and the adaptations that can be made to make like easier all around.

You can check out the issue here if you fancy it!
