My names Madeline, but everyone calls me Maddie and I happen to be chronically ill. I was born with an auto immune disease called Hashimotos, which later on in life (in my case 11) caused my thyroid to stop working and become ‘underactive’. I was later on diagnosed with M.E, POTS, EDS and CPS . I’m currently in collage after many years off school due to my M.E, studying Creative Media which funnily enough, lead me here. On this blog I’ll be sharing personal tips, struggles and everyday experiences on living life as a spoonie. I’m trying my best to get by and live my life the best I can as an ill teenager who wants her own identity. Perhaps you could say, I’m learning to dance in the rain.
