From pain to inspiration…
My experience living and working with chronic pain and fatigue has become an inspiration for my art.

In 2006 I had a Burnout, since then it went from bad to worse. Nevertheless I continued working but it wasn't the same anymore. I started to have several aches and I was feeling tired all the time.
End 2009 I was at the end of my rope, my doctor put me on sick leave and send me to the hospital, after several tests they diagnosed me with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Apparently it's a combination of stress and pain that caused this fatigue. For more than 30 years I'm suffering from Clusterheadache, bruxism, oedema in the right ankle... according to the doctors my body's telling me it's had enough.
I'm still in treatment, CFS rehabilitation centre, group therapy, individual therapy... but so far no significant result, it feels like a dead end. But I'm not giving up yet!!
All that gave me the inspiration to create this.
