I recently wrote and illustrated a children's book called Teddy-Bo's Feeling Tired that tells the story of what it's like for a child to be diagnosed and treated with juvenile dermomyositis. Everytime a child is now diagnosed with the condition they get a copy of the book and cuddly toy of Teddy-Bo, thanks to the work of the Myositis Support Group.
Myositis affects both children and adults and there are many variants, but my personal experience has been largely with a girl in the village who was first diagnosed when she was at infant school. She's had a rough time of it since then, and was the inspiration behind the book.
