Name – Vicky. Aka Zade, Ickybob, Wheezy.
Age – 25
Location – Manchester, England.
Occupation – Biomedical Science Student.
Hobbies – Photography, Listening to music, video games, staying with friends, drawing, watching films and travelling when I can.
I’m Vicky, 24. I live in Manchester with my best mate Cookie. I’m unable to work at the minute cause of my health, but study Biomedical Science at university. I love drawing cartoon characters and doing graffiti. Although the graffiti is a major work in progress. I love going to Ireland and Tenerife to see my family. To me, the world’s too big to go unexplored and even if I can’t see as much of it as I want at the minute, I’ve already caught the bug and I don’t want to let it go. No matter how old I get.
I’ve got Brittle Asthma, Adrenal Insufficiency, Osteoporosis, Depression, I suffer from migraines and I’ve had both of my hips replaced because of Avascular Necrosis secondary to steroid use. I talk about my health a lot in my blog. Some of it is in a positive sense, but a lot of it is me ranting. But a lot of time, I want people to be able to see that it is possible to stay positive despite shite happening. No matter how much I gurn, moan and give out, I always try and keep an upbeat attitude. My conditions aren’t going to rule my life. And that’s taken me a long time to get my head around.
So enjoy reading, feel free to comment and say hello. I don’t bite!
If you’re feeling like being bored out of your mind, then have a read of these pages. They are pages that have either given me support or information about my conditions.
Asthma UK – A charity that I owe a lot to. I wouldn’t have met half the people I consider friends if it wasn’t for this charity.
Mind – This charity hasn’t only helped me with my Mental Health, but a lot of others that I greatly care about who’ve struggled.
