I am a young girl leaving in Athens Greece. Since i was 17 years old i am suffering from permanent & chronic pain all over my body.
In 2011 i had a surgery in my spinal chord at my waist. I was diagnosed, at the same time, with neurological migraines and intervertebral disc herniation that was pressuring the nerve of my left leg. Two years after i was numbed all over my body and i was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and Arnold Chiari Type I. The Arnold Chiari Malformation has crated a 9mm Syringomyelia in my Spinal Chord and i gave wrinkles all over my neck.
Despite all my problems i hardly continued my studies in Agricultural Biotechnology until 2015 when i started my Master in "Study and Exploitation of Natural Products" with a scholarsip that i gained but they never gave it to me!!!
Unfortunately my family was suffering from poverty so i was obbeyed to work part time simultaniously with my Master. This made things really bad and my ocassion worst. My healt condition got really bad and i was numbed and depressed for a long time. I stoped my Master for a year because i wasn't able nor to pay it neither to write it and finish the experimental part.
After all these, I really tried to find a work in my field but no one would hire a person like me, with so many pains and health problems. The only job i was managed to do was in promotion companies where the cinditions where so hard that after 2-3 days of work i needed a week to return in my former condition.
After a lot of cry and depression i decided to fight a little longer and to start my own small business where i could manage my time in a better way, when i really needed to lie down or to take my medicines or either to stop for a second because i was numbed, i wouldn't be afraid that i would get fired or that i have to continue getting worse until the end will come because i don't have another option in my life.
So, i really want to start a really small business in Handmade Soaps (as it is close to my study field) and i will have the help of my family in this try.
Thank you for reading my story and sorry for my awfull english writing..
