Hello from Vic!

  • Hi, I'm Caitlin from Victoria.
    I've been sick since I was 15 so about 16 years now. Just realised I've lived longer sick than healthy which is kind of weird to think about. Was busy with school + elite sports, got what felt like a cold and never recovered. Ended up getting diagnosed pretty quickly, was in the "I don't know what to do with you" doctor limbo for a while then ended up as a patient of Dr. Lewis.

    My health flucates quite a bit - I've had some years stuck in bed not being able to tolerate light, sound, smell, touch, temperature etc and a few brief periods where it's felt like I'd be able to live 1/4 of a normal life. Mainly though its in the middle. Currently I can use the computer for a little bit and I can reheat food on the stove (if I have stool handy) which is a win. I was into crafts over the past year (knitting/crochet and embroidery) but can't see that well atm so its on hold for now.

    Glad to be here and to have a place to talk and share experiences with other people going through the same thing.
