I'm a chronically ill Canadian who has been living in Asia since 2003. I moved from China to Taiwan in 2006. I'm an experienced businesswoman and have worked in many leadership positions in Asia. In addition to my own work, I've been writing professionally about Asia, travel and health advocacy since 2007, providing regular content to publishing companies and travel publications in Asia and North America. I started writing about my health journey in 2009 after being diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. In 2014, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS, which came with other massive health issues. These diagnoses were the start of my journey as a health advocate and patient leader. Since then, My Several Worlds has been recognized worldwide as a top site for AS, fibromyalgia, and chronic illness by WEGO Health and Healthline.

      I agree. I spent some time going through her upcoming videos, and she’s got some truly great moments.

    I’m studying Chinese in Shanghai and I’m finding it pretty hard, although I have to say I’m starting speaking and grasping some words in shops and the streets. However, it’s depressing that despite my efforts people don’t understand me! This is due to the different tones that give words different meanings and my pronunciation must be very bad, and the fact that there are many dialects. But I’m not getting despondent, I’ll get there some time 😉

      Angela,

      I know what you mean. I’ve been in Chinese-speaking countries since 2003. I’ve studied in China and Taiwan and there are STILL days when I can’t make myself understood. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that most people are surprised to hear a ‘foreigner’ speaking Chinese. I’ve often had full conversations with one person and then turned around and said the same thing to someone else and they didn’t understand. I really think it has to do with who you’re talking to and how much of an effort they are making to understand what you are saying.
