In a place like Snowdonia, Wales; weather forecasts are often dotted with high chances of thunderstorms, rain and strong winds. When climber Delyth Owen was diagnosed in 2017 with Functional Neurological Disorder, manifesting in seizures and episodic loss of control of mind and body, her inner landscape began to mirror the tumultuous Welsh skies.
