This picture is me.
I've received fanmail over it.
I have heard a million times "you're SO lucky, I wish I had your body".
I never needed to diet or exercise - it's my natural shape.
It runs in the family - my mother (and the mother of my 3 siblings) has the same figure... I once borrowed her bikini for a photoshoot.
The picture was taken a few years back, but I have the exact same weight now, I look the same.
Only difference: I was on a healthy spell then.
Only right now, I'm having a bad spell.
I have ME/CFS and am housebound.
I cannot sit upright for more than a few minutes, I need pillows to support me.
I am dependent on others for daily care.
On a good day, I can knit or crochet for a little while.
That's what it's like to be me.
Who wants to swap bodies?
The My Body Gallery project needs real Women! We need your help to develop the project and build a collection of photos that will help more women see themselves more clearly. Upload a picture of your full body. Our photo submission process also allows you to block out part of the image to protect your identity, if you wish. Please note that you must be 18 to upload a photo.
