Well, where do I start?
5 years ago I became very poorly and ended up in hospital numerous times, having lots of tests and seeing different specialists. Over the space of 6 months I was told I could have had either a stroke, epilepsy, heart problems or MS. I was working at the time, came home one day had a shower and I collapsed, I lost all coordination and my speech was slurred. Luckily I managed to shout(I say shout, more like a muffle!) my son who was out in the front garden to come and help me. What the hell was going on with me? More visits, more tests....
I was diagnosed with a chronic condition called Fibromyalgia, a painful chronic disease, which affects the muscles and joints and causing numerous other things such as headaches/migraines, hair loss, fertility problems, the list goes on....
I wanted to get back to work regardless of my illnesses (as I have a few!)
But I have found it very difficult to get an employer to take me on, 1,000's of jobs applied for, had a couple of interviews, not been successful and the rest, well, never heard back from them! So I am looking for help to continue doing what I enjoyed doing before I collapsed at home, but doing it from a shop. I am trying so hard myself trying to raise as much as I can. I just need the help of local businesses with help doing the shop up. Any diy'ers?? So I am looking to raise as much as I can to get started and I really appreciate if any1 can help me to get back working.
I will be looking for volunteers who can help out to begin with and who knows there might be a few job positions available, as I want to give back to the community. Much appreciated. Lisa x
