When fatigue flares

When fatigue flares

Moving house is always stressful and difficult, even if you don’t have chronic illnesses it can take it’s toll. When fatigue flares it can leave you feeling frustrated and annoyed, or trying to push through so you can get things done. Weeks of packing followed by moving in and becoming a carer have left me struggling for energy. I live my life walking a tightrope between those things every day at the moment, frustrated and seeing how much I can…

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.

Alternative Marie Kondo method for chronic illness

Alternative Marie Kondo method for chronic illness

Hey everybody! Wow I cannot get a hold of my fatigue at the moment, and I think anyone who has the same issue will understand my problem. You see not too long ago a woman gained fame on Netflix for her show about decluttering and she is Marie Kondo! The problem I found was the Marie Kondo method is not really practical when you live with chronic illness and especially chronic fatigue. So, I had to come up with an…

Taking time to rest

Taking time to rest

Hey everybody! Wow this last week my fatigue has been pretty bad and honestly I think I have caught a little cold!

Hey everybody! Wow this week has been very out of the ordinary, and I kind of feel like a fish out of water, or like the ground isn’t quite right beneath me. Its just been adventures, hobbies and flare ups and not enough rest and quiet for me to cope!

Frustration with Fatigue

Frustration with Fatigue

Hey everybody! So like I mentioned earlier this week, my fatigue has kicked things up a notch and I am really hoping this is just a flare to do with the anaemia I have been put on iron tablets for. This week has been full of frustration with fatigue stopping me doing most things I want to do and when I push through it pushes back! I have started trying to do my physiotherapy exercises every other day, she told…

Fighting fatigue and gaining confidence

Fighting fatigue and gaining confidence

Hey everybody! First of all I am very sorry I did not have a blog post out to you on Friday last week I think things caught up with me. I have been fighting fatigue and gaining confidence two things that shouldn’t go together but this week strangely do! As you know I had a bit of a stressful week with going to two disability benefits reassessments in one week! I really feel as if dealing with that has increased…

Ups and downs

Ups and downs

Hey everybody! Well December has arrived, and we are all reflecting back on the year, while either dreading or getting excited for Christmas. As we look back we realise we all have times where we struggle but it is rarely all one way or the other, life is just full of ups and downs. Over the last few days I have been thinking back, and a good way of doing this I realised was to look at my vision board….

When you feel like you’re running on empty

When you feel like you’re running on empty

Hello my butterflies! My blood count is low, I have been put back on iron tablets and that’s it really! It’s so hard when you feel like you’re running on empty! Now I have suffered with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME) and fatigue from my other illnesses for years now, but if you remember I wrote a post not too long ago explaining that antibiotics had given me gastritis. So I had to have some blood taken so they could keep…

Having past life regression and meeting inspiring people

Hey everybody! Having past life regression and meeting inspiring people has been what this week was all about it was so cool but oh so tiring!!
