Hi there! My name is Dreana Ferguson and I am going to be starting my junior year of college in the fall of 2014. I have been diagnosed with multiple chronic illnesses, including ones that affect my immune system.Due to my multiple chronic illnesses, which have made my living situation on campus…
I know Dreana through ‘Pretty Sick’, a facebook group for chronically ill femmes to celebrate our femme-ness/hotness while still being sick as fuck. She has several chronic illnesses including epilepsy, chronic kidney stones, chronic migraines, arthritis, heart problems, severe celiac disease and is still in the process of diagnosing whether or not she has Chron’s disease (which if she’s anything like me, fucking SUCKS. I have all the symptoms of Chron’s and still haven’t been diagnosed with it).
She’s looking for help funding her college accommodation, so that she can still attend in spite of her illnesses, which is so incredibly awesome. As someone who had to drop out of college due to academic ableism and a complete lack of understanding about the small changes needed in order to just function, there are no words for how much I support this.
