Hi, I’m Ollie.

I’m a 27 year old solicitor from Brisbane, Australia. I also happen to have a rare, neuromuscular disease.

This is my blog – where I’ll have the chance to tell you my stories.

It’s easy to think that no one knows what anyone else is struggling with in their own life, and that’s sort of true. But there are a lot of people around the world going through their own issues at any one time. We don’t have to know exactly what these are to listen and show empathy to others.

I tend to have a ‘silver lining’ approach to life. I’m hoping that my stories – the lessons I’ve learned along my journey and how I think about things – may be useful to others. I’m hoping that people might be able to come here to find some guidance and understanding.
