I Won't Give Up

"Have you gained or lost a hobby/activity in your life due to chronic illness? What was that experience like?"

Well! I could talk for a very long time about this and I don't have much direction for this post so good luck!

I've dealt with some of my symptoms all my life but everything got a whole lot worse after having good ol' glandular fever three years ago. At the time I was a musical theatre student, I really don't know how but I managed to finish the last six months of my course leaving with a merit, which I am very proud of. The issues began when I tried to go to uni, perhaps I would have been able to cope with the course if I wasn't also looking after myself for the first time but who knows. Due to my health declining I had to leave.

~My current head shots

I'm still trying to work out how I can persue my dream career in a way that works for me because there's no way I'm giving up! At the moment I'm a part time performer for parties and hope to start teaching soon, I'm also exploring the possibility of different courses and qualifications I could do to further my career and maybe one day perform professionally.

That's where I am in life I suppose, we'll see where u go from here.
