Story

Hi my name is jill i use to work as a children's nurse until 8 years ago when I began to feel increasingly poorly, my body was in a constant state of fatigue and the pain was so overwhelming and debilitating. My bodies immune system had started to attack itself. Little did I know this was just going to be the start of things to come. I was diagnosed with discoid lupus, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, chronic bladder and pelvic pain syndrome and endometriosis I also have lower back inflamation and pain. I have fought against meningitis which has left me with acute migraines requiring occipital nerve blocks for the pain and have had a skin melanoma/cancer. Life as I knew it had completely changed and I have gone from caring for sick and disabelled children to requiring help day and night myself. I have become severely depressed, and to live each day is a battle. As the years go by I see my health worsen and it scares me so much I am a 35 year old mummy to a beautiful little boy who is now 8 and a wonderful husband, it kills me that they have to see me and endure the pain and trials of everyday life living with a disabilty. Due to my health I spend most of my days locked away in my bedroom, such valuable time just living life with family and enjoying the comfort of being together and especially the ability to be a hands on mummy has been taken away. We try and spend my good days doing normal family things but this can leave me feeling so exhausted and sore that these day are so few and far apart. I use a wheelchair or walking aids to help get about as the pain of walking can be to servere. I rely on the care and assistance of others including the help from my disabilty assistance dog. I would love the opportunity to be able to integrate myself back into family life. My wish is to be able to create an environment within the home where I can spend time with the family from a bed where I can watch my son play in the garden so we can have more time together.
