Child Interests

Current interests are Manga comics and knitting.
Favourite colours are green and black.
She likes snakes and plants.


Yasmin was fit and well from birth and up until the age of 13 a very lively, friendly, active, intelligent child with no history of illness, not even the usual bugs picked up by children.

At 13 she started to get headaches which started at the rate of about once a fortnight and gradually increased so that by year 9 of school she was in too much pain on a daily basis to go to school and became more or less housebound.

She is now 17 and has not improved and in fact she is continuing to decline. Her headaches were quickly joined by more symptoms including abdominal pain, palpitations, intolerance to standing, nausea, constant fight/flight response, dizzy, joint and muscle pain brain fog and chronic fatigue.

She has been to see lots and lots of specialists but has not found any relief. She spends most of her time in bed, isolated from her peers and too unwell to maintain any kind of hobby or interests due to brain fog and joint pain. She suffers with PEM which means if she does something (like 20 minutes on a jigsaw) the following day she is in even more pain.

Not surprisingly she suffers with anxiety and depression as a result of the impact of this illness on her life.
