Jenny Blyth

Creating a Storm

Jenny Blyth has Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and fibromyalgia, alongside chronic pain and chronic fatigue. EDS is a connective tissue disorder and impacts mainly the joints and her back, but also effects multiple organs within her body.

Jenny founded Storm in a Teacup after realising her illnesses made working in an office based role unsuitable. Jenny says:

”I can’t do a standard 9-5 job, but I can work in a self-employed role as my boss (me!) positively encourages afternoon naps so that I can cope!”
