Changing tablets and maybe a new diet?

Changing tablets and maybe a new diet?

Hey everybody! Wow it is May and there seems to be a lot going on with me right now, it is a little overwhelming but I am excited at the same time. Right now I am looking into changing tablets and maybe a new diet? Changing Tablets I think by now everyone in the chronic illness community and beyond knows about the opoids crisis. I really didn’t think it affected me but then because of my memory issues my husband…

Birthday, bad news and a flare

I am sure my fellow Spoonies understand and for that I am thankful! This week is starting off with payback for my birthday, bad news and a flare and I am not happy about it! My birthday was pretty chill, I visited my mother and we had some yummy food and cake and…

Repercussions from Christmas

Repercussions from Christmas

Hey everybody! Well Christmas is over, the New Years bells have been rung, and I am suffering the repercussions from Christmas! Thing is I cannot blame anyone at all but myself, and that is the annoying part, I did all the things I should not do I know better!! Over Christmas I started rewatching New Girl which is a favourite of mine and I tend to turn to these sort of comfort shows at difficult times. This Christmas was the…

Surviving the nutritional minefield

Surviving the nutritional minefield

Hey everybody! So if you have been following my blog and you tube channel you will know I am currently doing HEAL CHRONIC FATIGUE COURSE and though it is set up as a six week course I have taken a little longer over the middle weeks. This is because it deals with nutrition and how we often think we are being healthy when we actually are being lied to by companies who use far too much sugar and salt and…

Birthday Month Self Love

Hey everybody! So on the 16th of this month it is my birthday, and as I thought about the things I wanted out of the year ahead the main one was to look after myself better and to be kinder to myself.

Body positivity with a Chronic Illness

Body positivity with a Chronic Illness

Hi everyone! I have been hit full in the face with this over the last couple of weeks and it is something most people can identify with. I love my celebrities however my favourite actress is Nina Dobrev who somehow manages to be skinny, toned and have curves! I love my muscular men like Jamie Dornan, but I know my hubby sees them and wishes he could look like them! Every TV show, film, magazine etc tells us we need to…

Diet confusion

Diet confusion

Hi friends! So I am struggling at the moment and I have no idea what to do or who to ask and to be honest it is making me tearful and feel really down. So I have been having digestive issues for a while now and a few months ago I had cameras everywhere to check I had no tumours or ulcers or anything like that which were thankfully all clear. However, those problems are still present and I am…

Now it was late on Friday and there…

Drained but proud

Drained but proud

Hi guys! Wow it has been a draining week and so I have had a lazy day today! Typical sunday I lay in bed late and then watched You Tube videos until I could get the energy to have a shower. I have done nothing productive really apart from write this post and try a new smoothie bowl recipe using Cacau powder…but feeling nauseous this was probably not the best day to try it! I got a little writing done…
