“I was an active person doing photoshoots almost everyday. Travelling to different locations and getting on the floor for angles of shots.
In April 2018 i woke up with back pain and then by the end of the week I couldn’t stand or move my legs. It was terrifying . A few months later I was diagnosed with a neurological disorder where my brain doesn’t communicate with my body. I have been unable to feel or move my legs since April 2018. I have a weak upper body some days and I also experience non epileptic seizures that can last hours!
Since becoming a wheelchair user I have lost loads of my self confidence and comfort ate every day . A few months ago my mental health was at the worst and I was almost sectioned . I turned to exercise to make me feel good. Starting out from 1 sit up to 20 sit ups whilst holding a 6 kilo kettlebell. You could say exercise saved my life.”
