It’s always nice to reminisce on your younger years, such as your first day at school, your first teacher, your nanny or your old friends. I try to keep in touch with my old friends from Castle Batch Primary School, but as it’s quite a distance away it’s hard to stay close to everyone.
There is one friend however, who I do try and keep in touch with as much as I can, and her name is Velvet. Velvet has gone through a lot in her life, considering she’s only 16. Ever since I’ve known her, she’s had CIDP which is a condition that damages nerves, causing muscles to weaken and prevents your body from functioning properly.
She has recently been featured in an NHS online article, she was asked to write for it and did an amazing job of telling her story!
I’m so proud of her, and would love for you all to read her story. You can also find this if you type in “NHS Velvets Story” into Google.
