I suffer from hyper mobility and fibromyalgia. i have trouble getting out of bed and functioning a lot of the time and its really hard to live with allong side with my extensive anxiety and depression. So traveling to get this artwork i designed by myself when i was having a really sore day and couldnt move to represent my pain journey and how far ive come. Some obsticales ive barely hopped over have took a major toll on my life and i think getting this would be a massive sign of a new start from recent events.
I'd prefer to not land myself in hospital again as horrible as it sounds but i think this is my way of regaining control. I dont go out and i think the world is really scary so im totally coming out of my comfort zone here to travel all the way to London with my loving partner to then get my own design on me forever. I just need a push to try get there because im currently in college and im trying to get some form of income sorted because im really not well and think this may give me some confidence to go out and try new things without being so scared.
I cant walk that far without getting really tired or sore. It runs all the way through the majority of my joints and muscles. PAIN. I want this artwork on me because it represents fighting pain because i was when i was drawing it.
I'm just having trouble getting some form of income at the moment. Everythings quite difficult and the mass amounts of pain and stress only makes things worse so i think doing this would be a massive stepping stone of positivity in my life and i'm ready to do it.

I'm hannah, a lover of art who is fairly poor and disabled. It's hard to get out of bed never mind travel... But this is A BIG step for me and way out of my comfort zone. Accupuncture is meant to help fibromyalgia so hopefully this might help my pain in my back neck and shoulders
