Chin up: The story of a metamorphosis CONTENTS

Chin Up is a memoir of my health experiences – what happened to me at the age of 24 and what went wrong over the next 12 years, then the long process of fixing myself and the astonishing things I discovered.

I published it as a series of daily blog posts over a period of two weeks December 2020-January 2021. The first half gives context to what I did and how I find myself where I am now. Thanks for reading! Please do comment and share.
