I haven't got time to feel sorry for myself: Spinal Muscular Atrophy can't stop me

Hi, I’m Jasmine and I am 22 years old from the UK. I suffer from a condition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy which is a muscle wasting condition that'll get worse over time. I work full time supporting people emotionally and I really enjoy this. I thrive from supporting people and I can sometimes use my own experiences to do this. I drive a wheelchair adapted vehicle, which has been a life saviour with my job! I live alone with my two cats, and life is great! My disability hasn't stopped me doing a single thing & I believe if you want to do something, get up and do it. I haven't got time to feel sorry for myself, or to ask questions like "why me". I'm a very positive empowering person. Please message me if I can help you in any way at all, or if you'd like to chat.

EMPOWER OTHERS!
