Lupus Trust supporter, Kelle Bryan, talks about how she’s had to relearn how to walk and talk after suffering a stroke two years ago
Kelle has just revealed that she is to join Hollyoaks as the character Martine. She said "Two years ago I auditioned for Hollyoaks and was offered the role but I was too poorly to take it".
One of the things people say most often when they see you is ‘how are you’, an innocent enough question to most people, but when you have a chronic illness are they asking exactly how you are or just being polite? How many people want the full low down of how we’re actually feeling?
My stock answer, even with people I know well, is ‘Oh I’m fine thanks’ and I’d be pretty sure a lot of other people with chronic illnesses are saying the same thing. So why do we give this answer?
