Chronically Uncool – a Column by Ellie Bird

making time count, therapy

Ellie is 24 and lives just outside of London. She was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension in 2017 at age 22, having just graduated university with an English literature degree. Now she works in comms and PR for an online learning platform. When not dedicating spare time to raising awareness about PH, she’s singing, reading books, and going for walks in the countryside (when not too breathless!). She also, in stereotypically English fashion, drinks a lot of tea — preferably with a slice of cake!
