Having been a dancer and then a dance teacher it was a shock to be diagnosed with FND in December 2018. Suddenly I was no longer in control of my own body.
I have always enjoyed writing short poems/verses and used this as an outlet to pass the time. Taking it a step further, I then wrote a short rhyming story about my 2 little chihuahuas who keep me company every day. After finding an illustrator, I made it a project to self publish and I’m so happy to have achieved this goal in March 2021.
