I am a qualified radiographer but unfortunately had to give up my much loved job in September 2011 when my lung problems really kicked off (after suffering multiple pulmonary emboli), resulting in frequent and lengthy hospital admissions.

One Christmas I was stuck in hospital, in a sideroom on my own, for 6 weeks so I started making earrings to pass the long lonely days. I then taught myself to make bracelets and necklaces and gradually moved on to bag charms and other gifts. These were very popular with staff, visitors and patients.

I carried on with my new hobby once at home as I was still unable to do much due to my severe lung disease leaving me very short of breath on exertion. Over the last 5 years my mobility has gradually declined and I am currently bed/wheelchair bound due to instability in my joints, as a result of Ehlers-danlos Syndrome, and my lungs only functioning at 25%. I’m on oxygen 24/7 and I suffer from chronic pain and fatigue.

Despite all this my brain is still active and therefore I get bored easily and so doing my jewellery helps to pass the time! I have many complex health conditions however I still try to do the best I can, although pushing myself to get out of the house one day results in a few days rest just to recover!
