Diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 1990 and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis in 1986 she was eventually put on permanent disability in 2001. Rain has been playing the guitar and singing since she was fifteen years old. She said it was the support of friends that finally convinced her to write her own songs. In her words: "Chronic pain was thrust upon me . . . but music is a part of me.  I have lost much to these diseases many times, but they cannot take that part of me away.  It is my source of hope."
