About me

Welcome!!

Firstly, thank you for visiting my site and welcome! Whether you’re a long term supporter, looking for help, a little support or just stopping by to see what all the fuss is about… thank you.

I am Emily, and I started blogging as I wanted to create a sense of community and support for other siblings that have a brother with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. It’s important to note from the beginning that this is not about science, or dwelling on the negative parts of this condition as I am a big believer in the power of positivity (to a point anyway).

In my blog posts I address every day life situations and topics that are different for us siblings in an open and honest way. I hope that by doing so, some of us can support each other in a positive way and create a sense of support for others that need it too. Something that I have felt for a long time is very lacking.

I write in a very honest, open and (I try) to be a little bit humerous in there too. This blog isn’t just for siblings, as I believe that it helps other relatives and friends understand what it is like as a sibling- something that can be very difficult to explain to others. So I’ve saved you all the hassle- you just have to send them my way!

I hope you enjoy reading my blog and it helps some of you feel a little less alone!

P.s (That’s me in the pic below)
