Started my own wreath making business.
I was diagnosed back in 2015 after a Cat scan/lung biopsy showed IPF. I already had my own jewelry making business up to that point, so after the recovery of the lung biopsy I found myself sitting in my recliner all day long doing nothing but watching tv and sleeping. As I recovered I knew my mobility would be limited so I started to make wreaths. I spent many hours learning, watching tutorials, etc. Soon, I was showing my friends and started selling to them. It gave me the motivation to get a website, FB page: https://m.facebook.com/WreathsbySLeeK/ and start interacting with people via making my own videos. Most of my customers do not know I am sick. A few do and I limit my videos as I know a coughing jag can come out of no where. This tiny business has saved me from depression and given me a new confidence that I can still be useful. I also spend time relaxing by crocheting. It has been a godsend and I highly recommend a hobby that doesn’t exhaust you.
