Joel Nelson – Advocate and Freelance Writer
In his short writing career, Joel has written for several leading organisations and charities and is a community advocate and writer for Psoriatic-Arthritis.com.
Specialising in writing about parenting, pain and mental health he hopes that his candid, no-filter accounts of living with chronic illness will make a change in both attitudes and support for those living with autoimmune disease.
