"I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious." Albert Einstein is talking about me, I am passionately curious about my Creative side, Disability Advocacy and my adventures with my Assistance Dog Bailey.
Bailey's story is a life-changing one, my life. 10 years I battled with life-crippling symptoms and dealt with 17 dismissive doctors that I had started to give up. I had to go to a doctor purely by chance due to a chest infection that wouldn't shift I reluctantly went to a new doctor. When I heard those words "you have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome." confusion would be putting lightly. I had no idea what it was, for hours after my appointment, and I was researching like a demon-possessed. Looking up every website, article, leaflet or Facebook I could find. I would then go on to add Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Hemiplegic Migraines and Non- epileptic dissociative Seizures (NEDS) to my ever-growing list of comorbidities.
When you work in a part of the adult industry, you always seem to come up against the same question "How can I spice up my sex life?". We always turn to the tools, props or activities you can do, but what a lot of people forget before they come and talk to us is the very foundation of what a sexual partnership is. The biggest thing that people forget to do, believe it or not, is communicate.
A question I get asked a lot when I'm out and about with Bailey, my Assistance Dog, is "how did you teach him to be so calm?" and I wish I could say that it was easy or it's just him, but it took work and practice.
