Just like you…but probably with more drugs.

I am a 20-something woman living in London who works as a strategist in the advertising industry, and just happens to have a life-shortening lung condition called Cystic Fibrosis.

I also have CF related diabetes, because I hear all good things come in twos.

Under Professional Sick Girl, I write to raise awareness of what it’s like to pursue a demanding career with a lifelong illness, not least a love life and perhaps even a social life too. I hope to illustrate the challenges people with CF live with on a daily basis, and do my best to make them relatable to others. I may even try to make you laugh along the way.

I also write about other topics for funsies, like my doomed plan to go without new clothes for a year. Previously I have written for industry publications including Creative Social and Future Rising.

If you like something you read, then let me know. For queries or to commission writing please email me at ellyfoster@gmail.com.

  1. I love that you are doing this, Ellie. I want to say ‘go girl’ but am probably 30 years too old, so please just accept the sentiment.
