About Lowen Puckey
Hello! I'm Lowen. Living with osteoarthritis, endometriosis, hypoglycaemia, chronic migraines and anxiety, I am a parent to a teen with severe autism and epilepsy. I use my professional background in research to find sound information on living positively with chronic illness and disability @ livingpositivelywithdisability.com.
