I have loved crafting for as long as I can remember. However while growing up and going through my teenage years, I didn’t do much of it anymore.
That was until I was 27 with a brilliant job and engaged to be married the following year. I started forgetting things more often, I was getting confused easily. I then started to feel more and more tired and was getting more aches and pains than usual. Although still young I just put this down to getting older. That was until one day, on my break at work I lost all feeling in my left leg.
An ambulance was called and I was taken to hospital. I was discharged the same day as they didn’t know what had happened to my leg as the feeling came back later than evening.
This is the worst part, the following day while at home, having taken the day off work, I felt really week and then a few hours later I couldn’t move an inch without the most excruciating pain.
My Fiance insisted I go to the hospital where I was kept in over night. Early hours of the morning the doctor came and explained that my symptoms pointed towards me having Fibromyalgia but she couldn’t diagnose it and I would need to see a Rheumatologist for that.
Fast forward weeks of seeing my GP constantly for pain meds as nothing seemed to work, I finally saw the Rheumatologist. As predicted he diagnosed me with Fibro. I had no idea what this meant at the time but he explained it is a chronic pain condition, which can cause pain at any time anywhere on the body. This explained what I had been feeling. Fibro causes lots more things such as IBS, chronic migraines, brain fog. I also suffer with all of these and more.
To make things worse, a month after my Fibro diagnoses I was also diagnosed with Sleep Apnea.
As time past I was struggling more and more and had to make the difficult decision to leave work.
While I was off sick from work for a few months before leaving, I started decorating glasses with glitter and gems. I gave them to my friends and family who kept telling me I should sell them. Well… when I left work I decided to register as a small business and opened a Facebook page. That’s where it all started.
Now I’m married, enjoying what I do, and doing what I love. Not only do I sell hundreds of decorated glass, I now also sell cards, box frames, signs and much more.
I’m now taking the next steps in broadening my business by expanding from just selling through Facebook. Over the next few weeks in hoping to open shops here at Conscious Crafties, Etsy, Folksy and eBay.
Am I mad?
Wish me luck …. :)
