Joshua Whitlock


Josh suffers from a number of allergies, as well as ADHD and hypermobile joints. Itchy, painful skin and bullying at school make life difficult, and having to give up Tai Kwan Do for fear of breaking something leaves Josh with few outlets. When he is also diagnosed with Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disease, life becomes really tough. Gradually, he's learned to keep his physical symptoms under control - mostly - and he's learned to cope emotionally by trying not to care..
