How much will I be able to go through

In my project, which I have been working on since 2017, I am trying to document my wife's autoaggressive disease – myopathy. My wife, Małgorzata (37), lives from day to day, waking up stiff with pain in the morning, wondering how much she can go through each day. The images were created at various times, trying to construct a portrait of pain and everyday suffering. Myopathy is a general medical term used to describe a number of conditions affecting the muscles. All myopathies cause muscle weakness. Chronic inflammatory myopathies cannot be cured Myopathy is a mitochondrial disease is also a hereditary disease in the maternal line transmitted by women. The survival rate is estimated at approx. 10 years. 1 in 15,000 people suffer from mitochondrial disease.
