Up until 2013, I was enjoying a great career. For over 30 years I had worked with children and their families in various capacities – latterly specialising in fostering and adoption. I had found myself in a wonderful job as a manager in an adoption charity and having been there for just over a year, I became ill, experiencing chronic pain and fatigue, which meant I was largely unable to get out of bed. There followed an horrendous 18 months of feeling desperately unwell and being passed from one Specialist to another. During that time I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid which had probably been that way for ages and was slowly shutting my body down. I was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia to explain the pain I was in. This didn’t however, explain the painful lumps I had developed… hundreds of small but excruciatingly painful lumps around my ribcage and larger ones on my arms, stomach and legs. I was so lucky that my GP had come across Dercums Disease before and he suggested this may be the case with me. I was then referred to a rare disease Specialist who confirmed that I had indeed got Dercums. There is no cure. It is rare. It is not yet understood. It robbed me of my wonderful job and the 30+ year career….and life as I knew it. But…. with medication I am managing the pain and trying to carve out a new niche, that goes with this new life. Having always been creative and enjoying art and design, I have started to explore this further and although I have been a member of CC for quite a while and talked with Karen about opening a shop ages ago, it has taken me until now to finally try and make a go of it.
