'I won’t let my chronic illness trap me in loneliness'
Jameisha was diagnosed with lupus - a condition which causes joint pain and extreme fatigue - almost five years ago. As a teenager, Jameisha says she ended up losing some friends because she just couldn’t do the things they were doing. When she’s having a flare-up, she may have to spend 16 hours-a-day in bed, which Jameisha says can be isolating. The 23-year-old now has a blog which tells people about chronic illnesses and tries to help them to feel less lonely. “Anyone that thinks loneliness is just for old people would be very wrong, there’s no age on loneliness,” she says.If you have been affected by issues raised in this film, help and support is available.
