This blog is about me, my health, and what has now been diagnosed as Ehlers Danlos syndrome. I am now living life to the full again as a consultant beekeeper and studying herbal medicine after suffering with severe disability for seven years.
I was a professional artist who suddenly developed severe symptoms back in the beginning of 2009. I used to run my life at 150 miles an hour, and then I became mainly housebound and sometimes bed bound as a result of this illness. I live in Somerset with my husband, my two sons and his son. I was no longer able to work or paint and rarely left the house.
As such I am writing this blog to share my experiences of this dreadful illness and I hope to be able to reach out to other CFS and Ehlers Danlos (EDS) sufferers who I may help from knowing that they are not alone.I also like to write about my experiences with various treatments and sharing memories of my ‘past life’ as an artist along with health, food and family issues I feel compelled to write about.
Please feel free to comment, I am very interested to know your views and experiences too.
