Story

My name is Kyri, I'm 29yrs old, I've been ill almost all my life, I first took Ill when I was about 1 and a half and was admitted to hospital in December 1988 I was in 11 days and was told I had chronic juvenile arthritis, I was so weak and had so much pain in my joints, I missed a lot of school and had a lot of hospital appointments and hospital stays, I had to have fluid drained from my knee and had to learn how to walk again because my muscles had collapsed in my upper legs, my pain has got worse, and in 2010 I was told I had vasculitis as well my body burned all over with a horrible rash and the vasculitis started to affect other parts of my body, I had chronic renal failure, and was admitted to Birmingham hospital, about a year later I was critical for 2 nights with a infection from my kidneys, over the last few years I've got more reliant on my wheelchair as my arms hurt to much to use my crutches anymore, I see I psychiatrist for my depression and I've now been told I have fibromyalgia as well, I have gall stones which cause me pain, but the operation to remove the gall bladder is not easy to do because of my medication and other illnesses, my psychiatrist says when I'm not in as much pain maybe I could make something for charity, so I'm making pet toys, I can't do many, but I rest my hands and do a few more, as I don't want to let people down, I just want to do what I can for vasculitis uk.
