Michelle Roger

Patient Leader

I hail from The Land Down Under, the land of Vegemite, kangaroos and a large proportion of the world's most dangerous animals. Mum of 2, wife of 1, and wrangler of an insane Great Dane and chooks. I blog to tell my story and maintain my sanity. To move past taboos and thus wipe away some of the fears we all have. All with a good dose of black humour, sarcasm and a pair of impractical sparkly red heels. And coffee. Lots and lots of coffee. This past year I started a project #upanddressed to demonstrate that fashion, practicality, disability and chronic illness aren't mutually exclusive. At the same time sharing awareness about life with Dysautonomia.

Nominations

Best in Show: Blog

Michelle's blog taught me many years ago that I wasn't alone that there were others like me in the world and made things a little less scary. I have followed her blog ever since for her dry / witty sense of humour and the information it conveys. My nomination is a way to say thank you.  — Rachel
