You are worth more than your darkness

Since the beginning of this month I have sat down on multiple occasions with the intention of writing a blog post but, have failed to think of something interesting to write about. I don’t want all of my posts to be centred on all of the negative aspects of my life but, these things are…

New year, same me

Slow down. Listen. Wonder. Wander. See the beauty and the magic. Embrace the divine wilderness of your heart and soul. You are no less than the stars and moon.

Dear Santa, all i want for Christmas is to be pain free ❄

December. The month where we are able to go crazy turning our houses into winter wonderlands, splurge on Christmas presents, eat to our hearts content and only have to deal with the consequences when the New year welcomes us with open arms.

Bring back my sanity!

November has quite frankly been a pretty shit month for me. I have been battling so many different side effects as i have been stopping and starting different medications in the hope that i will get just 5 minutes of peace.

Governmental Hooligans

After going to the cinema to watch I, Daniel Blake by Ken Loach, I felt the need to write a little bit about the film and how I can relate to the story.

We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us

This blog post is a little different from the ones I usually write but, I wanted to talk about something positive which is unfortunately quite difficult when talking about chronic illness. Sometimes all you need is some fresh air, a change of scenery and some good laughs to make you feel better, even if only…

Fibromyalgia, Its like having a hangover only without the party

Over the last months I have found it difficult to sit and think of something to write. I have found myself on countless occasions sitting and staring blankly at the laptop, having forgot the idea that had popped into my head only moments earlier. During the month of August I have found it hard to…

As mad as the hatter, as lost as Alice ⏳

I have spent a lot of time recently feeling a bit lost… lost in my head… lost in my body… lost in life. Lost yet the clock is always ticking. There is so much going on around me that is just out of reach. My motivation dwindles from day to day and I use all…

Summer heat? What is this torture?

In the UK we are currently in the middle of a surprisingly hot summer. I know i just said UK and hot in the same sentence. Usually by this time of the year we barely reach short wearing weather and we always need a umbrella handy for when the heavens open which we have all…

"I lost myself somewhere in the darkness"

Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, just when you finally begin to plan something, get excited about it and feel like you know what direction you’re heading…

I Believe You!

The worst thing you can do to someone with an invisible illness is make them feel like they need to prove how sick they are. Nobody really realises that some people have to use a tremendous amount of energy merely to be normal. I am what a person with an invisible illness looks like. I do not…

Life is tough my darling but so are you!

Almost a year ago now I was working 40+ hours a week running here there and everywhere to get things done and spent my days off resting for the busy days ahead. Now my life consists of numerous doctors appointments, waiting for referrals, filling in benefit forms and remembering to take tablets. I must admit…
