I’ve been crafting since I was a child, I’ve always been extremely artistic and creative and over the years it has acted as a coping mechanism for me and last year I thought I’d try and turn what I love, and what has saved me into a small but successful online business.
My challenges first began when I was two years old and diagnosed with Aortic Stenosis and Bicuspid Aortic Valve, whereby I then had major open heart surgery followed by another surgery at the age of four. In addition to a diagnosis of Asthma. This meant that I was always extremely tired and worn out however I kept on fighting and I didn’t let it stop me from joining in with all the other children and I even started football clubs, karate and athletics – I was the fastest girl in my year at school competing in long and short distance runs. My heart condition still means that I get tired doing basic tasks, I catch almost every bug there is to catch due to a low immune system and chest infections can prove fatal if I don’t receive antibiotics. Aortic Stenosis will never go away, and I have ECG’s every 6-12 months to check how the old ticker is doing.
Challenges for me didn’t end there, at the age of 6 years old I was then sexually abused in my own home until I was 12 years old and brave enough to speak out – I remember the day I first told my dad, I locked myself in the bathroom before school and cried my eyes out as I wrote out that horrible text message that no child should have to send, and that no father or parent for that matter wants to read. My dad was extremely supportive and done all he could but I think it was as hard for him as it was for me – I didn’t realise it back then but I do now since he feels it was his duty to keep me safe but didn’t – through no fault of his own I might add. This traumatic experience will never leave me, however after much support I am now able to talk about it more, although it’s still hard and it’s still a struggle to get the words together without completely breaking down. This experience has led to me suffering from complex PTSD and GAD to a point where it stopped me from doing things, and led to me trying to take my own life on multiple occasions and I think this is where crafting has saved me, it allows you to go into a completely different world where you don’t think about anything other then you and that piece of wood, or that piece of paper, or that someone loved your work enough to actually purchase it.
I honestly thought that things couldn’t get any worse, and that I deserved a tiny bit of luck after having been through all that but then at the age of 14 I was diagnosed with Scoliosis which is a curvature of the spine which can and does cause me a lot of pain and will get worse as I get older possibly resulting in surgery.
In spite of all I have been through I am still here, I am still fighting and more importantly I am still smiling and doing what I love and for that I am thankful. I’m not happy about the obstacles life has thrown at me, but over the years I have become proud of my scars and I can look back at it all and think HELL YEAH look at how far I’ve come and I can also use my experiences and do use my experiences to help and empower others.
Thank you so much for reading my story.
