Hi, I’m Bethan!
I’m 24 years old and have fibromyalgia. I was diagnosed in March 2018 although I had been suffering with chronic pain and fatigue for around 10 years beforehand.
I work full time in a job I absolutely love, as an entertainment manager at a theme park in the UK, but it has been a challenge since my diagnosis.
My hobbies include writing books, poems and blogs. I also love archaeology, watching films and TV, reading, researching medieval history and singing.
Fun fact, this year I did an archaeology field school for a week. I had a cold the entire time and was on my hands and knees… and I just about lived to tell the tale. It was worth all the pain but don’t know if I’ll be able to do it again. At least I’ve done it once!
I live with my parents and I can’t imagine moving out any time soon for many reasons. The first being I need someone to look after me on my bad days and who better than my mum?! Also renting and god forbid mortgages cost a fortune so I’m instead trying to save up but also spend money on things I want to do while I can.
I love going on relaxing, sunny holidays solo or with friends or family. I also absolutely love Disney and I’m going to Disney World for the first time in April 2019!!! I’m so excited!!!!
I started this blog to come to terms with my diagnosis but also to raise awareness and help others with similar conditions know they are not alone 💜
