I’m Michelle, I’m 31 and I am a New Zealand born & raised, Aussie. I have joint hypermobility & orthostatic intolerance amongst other conditions such as Crohn’s & chronic fatigue.

Prior to becoming significantly unwell, I was a young, active woman on a ‘career & study’ path. My health changed that and I now currently operate a small business from home, with the help of my fiancé, who has been my pillar of support & inspiration.

I have learned a great deal through my illnesses and look forward to sharing some of those things with others. I feel like I am gradually working towards reclaiming control of my life and look forward to returning to social ballroom dancing with my fiancé and partner by the end of the year.
