Louise is 17. And has just been diagnosed with Crohn's Disease.

'They told me I'd be getting sick. But actually I'm just getting awesome.'

STICK by Carolyn Burns.

 

'They told me I'd be getting sick, but actually I'm just getting awesome' http://www.freshink.com.au/stick/

In a local support group, Louise shares a darkly comic perspective on what’s it like to be a teenage girl with Crohn’s Disease. Sometimes it’s easier to reveal yourself to strangers.

Emma Campbell stars in STICK from Carolyn Burns’ original monologue. Directed by Martha Goddard.

    I think everyone should watch this. Especially if you don’t have Crohn’s.
