a bit about me then...

My name is Jessica Valentine-Howard but you can call me Jess, when I was thirteen I became ill with Glandular Fever (mono) and I never got better. The virus developed into a neurological condition that affects all of the body systems called Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. I have been ill for 10 years and God! Have I learnt a lot!

Writing has been my outlet since I can remember, whether it was writing little stories in the notes app of my beloved iPod touch writing in my journal - which was read by my cousin once and I was mortified - or carefully crafting poems which would later turn into writing songs. Writing has been my comfort, my safety blanket.

So, I decided to bite the bullet and combine my activism with my brain-fog-spelling-mistake-filled outlet and let little Jess be proud of me for being brave and trying to WRITE.
