15 years ago I was diagnosed with Lupus and Sjorgrens syndrome, both debilitating autoimmune conditions. I had spent years being a carer for my parents until they died, as well as running a crafting and art business but this was like hitting a brick wall. I suddenly couldn’t travel the way I used to, couldn’t work long hours, spent days so exhausted and ill I couldn’t lift a pencil that I thought my life was over. I tried doing a ‘normal’ job but regular periods of illness cause problems. I still need to be creative, it’s the thing that keeps me sane, but I can no longer slave over work day and night to meet strict deadlines. It’s hard not to feel worthless when you have a chronic illness, so I made myself a promise- do what you can do and do it well, be the best you can be and be true to yourself. Kindness and compassion cost nothing, but can change lives. I now need to prove to myself that I can still be relevant and useful.
