I was commissioned to produce six illustrations for a piece by the BBC telling the story of a family of women suffering severe hormonal problems who have struggled for diagnoses and help. It has had a great response on the website and I’m really pleased to have been involved.
Elizabeth* struggled with suicidal thoughts from the day she got her period. She finally got relief after a hysterectomy at 42. She and her daughter Grace*, 15, have the same severe form of premenstrual syndrome. Here, they explain why they are desperate for a treatment to save Grace from a lifetime of hormonal hell.
