By nature I am quite a shy person and don’t find it easy to talk about myself. Having my photo taken can be a very frustrating experience for the photographer. Therefore I decided to just apply for a job as an encourager and comforter to others walking the road of chronic illness , especially those suffering from Fibromyalgia/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
