Flares and Animal Crossing

Flares and Animal Crossing

Flares and Animal Crossing are things I never thought would go together, but over the last week they have really gone together for me! So a few weeks ago I treated myself to a Nintendo Switch and the game Animal Crossing (not sponsored I wish!) I love watching people playing Sims 4 and at the moment a lot of the players are having a go at the new Animal Crossing game. It looked so cute and was so relaxing to…

Calming Blankets Review + discount code

Calming Blankets Review + discount code

I was so lucky recently Calming Blankets got in touch with me to ask me to do a review of one of their weighted blankets. I have long wanted to be able to afford one, so I am so happy to be doing a Calming Blankets review! There has been a ton of research done into the benefits of using a weighted blanket. Personally I had long heard about how it was good for people on the autistic spectrum and…

The migraines are back

The migraines are back

So for a while now I have not been struggling with my chronic migraines, but now the migraines are back! Its strange because I had a doctor I saw for them and I am on medication to take when I have them. But they have not been around so I have to get used to them again. I had two lots of botox into the base of my skull for them a couple of years ago and they really helped….

Chronic Illness Rollercoaster

Chronic Illness Rollercoaster

Do you ever feel like you are on a chronic illness rollercoaster? Where you never know where you will be or how you will feel from one hour to the next? Now I am not talking about highs and lows that can come with some mental health diagnoses, I am talking about pain and fatigue. Recently I have been finding it hard to plan my days because I can wake up feeling good and plan out my rests and my…

Push for what’s right

Push for what’s right

Last week was not the easiest, I had to go to court to fight to get my disability benefits back. It was so stressful, and caused a flare, but sometimes you have to push for what’s right. I was surprised at how friendly the people at court were, there was a judge, a doctor and a disability specialist. There was also a secretary who took us inside after explaining exactly what was going to happen. They asked us questions rather…

Sleeping and the holidays

Sleeping and the holidays

So many people love this time of year, but it isn’t like that for everyone and that got me thinking about sleeping and the holidays. I have been struggling with sleep myself after finally fighting insomnia this year to get a regular routine! At first I was puzzled as to why I couldn’t fall asleep, I wasn’t in any more pain than usual so it wasn’t painsomnia. My routine hadn’t changed either and I knew that was important, I even…

A new norm to get used to

A new norm to get used to

I think anyone reading this who has chronic illnesses would tell you that after a while you get used to the symptoms. It becomes the norm and before you know it you can no longer remember how it feels to be well. But then something new pops up your head and before you realise it there is a new norm to get used to. This week I had a gastroscopy I had it with sedation because I didn’t want to…

A new daily routine

A new daily routine

So, as you know if you are a regular reader of my blog, we got a new dog his name is Dexter and he is a 5year old shih tzu. We have had him a couple of weeks now and he has really settled in well just becoming a part of the family and we love him. However, he is a higher energy dog than Gizmo ever was even as a puppy and I’m trying to work out a new…

Reflecting with a goddess

Reflecting with a goddess

So the other day I was doing a meditation by Sentia Yoga on Insight Timer called ‘Nine divine days day six the healer’. I have been enjoying this whole series but this one really resonated with me. In it she spoke about the Roman Goddess Feronia and while listening I just felt a lightbulb go off in my head. I have found it stayed with me and since then I have been reflecting with a goddess something I have not…
