People say to me who or what inspires you. This is a hard one to answer because it would depend on where I am or who I’m with. However I wold like to share with you why I was inspired to specialise in supporting people and their families with a Chronic Illness diagnosis. I grew up with a Mum who had a chronic illness that left er bedridden for months on end in and out of hospital and often in pain from the effects of her ilness. I saw my husband suffer with cancer as well as my sister in law. I’ve seen my best friend diagnosed and suffer from Motor Nuerones Disease one of the cruelest illness around.
I’ve seen my Grandson diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
They are the reasons I’m inspired to support people wth chroni illness. I’ve seen their struggle, the effects not only on themselves but also the familes and friends around them. If I can support them in anyway that’s what Ill do they inspire me to always me looking for ways I can support them. Thats the who and why of what inspires me.
