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…

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…

Making a fresh start after a depression flare

Hey everybody! Last month was pretty hard for me, I lost my grandmother and I turned 40…yeah I did not appreciate that! I got a little lost in everything, grief kind of took over and I stopped doing a lot of the things that I love. I stopped practising yoga, I stopped eating three meals a day, I stopped looking after myself and I was miserable! I was feeling overwhelmed with grief and I kind of shut down because I…

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.

Getting back to my routines after a flare

Getting back to my routines after a flare

Hey everybody! The last year has been incredibly hard for me, I lost my Granddad, I had a flare of my fibromyalgia and my depression crashed down on me. I stopped really caring about how my house looked, how clean and tidy it was, I stopped looking after myself and just got lost in symptoms, and depression. After recently seeing a psychic (HERE is a video about that) I found my depression and grief lifted and I started to realise…

Birthday Month Self Love

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. These are both things that I struggle with, I think most people do but I want to talk about how we all need to change this! So when I was at school I had problems with eating, I…

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…
