Artist's Description

It has been a very rough few years and I am doing everything in my power to remain hopeful and positive.
Back story – I used to work full time, I used to have a gym membership, I used to dance and hike.
Current story – I have been misdiagnosed for almost 4 years with lyme disease, there is no treatment beyond a month in Canada.
It hurts my arms terribly to dress myself and wear makeup.
I do this a few times a year (dress up/make up) for the purpose for photoshoots. What took me 10 minutes, now takes me a full hour because I have to take many breaks. 4 Years ago this dress fit me beautifully, now because of what lyme has done to my body, I could no longer fit in this dress, I had to cut huge slits up the back and in the arms. It is very disheartening taking all of these antibiotics and following the most strict diet (mostly raw veggies and lean meat only) sticking to under 1200 calories a day and not seeing any benefits:(
If I may ask of you, please can you watch this 10 minute video my friend made about me?
