Living with chronic illness often means your friendships and relationships have to change, and that can be really tough to navigate. Goodness knows I’m no expert, but in this video I chat about my own experiences of managing friendships alongside my energy-limiting condition and also answer some of your questions from Instagram – how to discuss your health with friends, make accessible plans, deal with conflict, and plenty more. Hope you enjoy/find this helpful!

My name is Pippa Stacey and I’m a disabled writer, presenter, and communications consultant based in York. I enjoy theatre, books, and fundraising, and can most often be found wearing some form of pyjamas and drinking all the tea.
I acquired my chronic illness as a young adult and struggle daily with the challenges of living my best life alongside managing a debilitating health condition. However, I’ve finally learned that I don’t have to ‘overcome’ or ‘defy’ my illness in order to be successful, and there’s truly nobody’s path to follow but your own.
