My name is Karandeep and I have had chronic fatigue syndrome since I was 12 years old. It has now been 10 years since I first became ill and throughout this journey I've picked up my own tips for managing my condition and learned how to communicate my struggles with others, both of which I share on my blog. I've found art to be a powerful tool for explaining my illness to both people who do not experience it and those with the same condition looking to be understood. On my blog I use artwork to represent the emotion behind each post and help others understand what people with chronic illness go through on a daily basis. I hope to show others with my illness that they can live a happy and fulfilling life, and that creating art is an easy way to start.
