I’m feeling incredibly excited and nervous. I’m very determined and that’s why I’m walking down the aisle.
I’m mentally ready. I’ve just got to physically be able to get there on the day and do what my goal is.
More than proud. Words can’t really describe it. It’s going to be a great day.
Before I developed ME I was a completely normal teenager. I was a netball captain. I was in my GCSE year.
And I was expected to go to Cambridge. There was a lot I was doing and it just totally went to pot.
I seizure a lot which is a big problem with my ME.
So I just want to be able to physically get there.
It’s a degree of defiance against my condition. I’ve spent so many years being told: “You won’t be able to do this”
“The best we can get for you is to sit in the chair.” And every time I’ve beaten that.
You walked down the aisle then? Yes, we made it.
Walking down the aisle is only the beginning for me.
I think when you’ve had ill health in your life, it changes your perspective on things and your aspirations are different
Because you realise that really you’ve got to just live.
You never know what’s round the corner. I don’t see four walls as being my future.
