A Journey of Self-Healing

Hopefully I can get through this entry without apologising for being behind in blog posts, for being ill and so on because the fact is none of it is something I have control over. While I wish I’d been better at blogging or been able to work on other projects, the fact is my health comes first and cutting down my to do list has been difficult in that respect. It’s been over a month since my last hospital appointment, an appointment which effectively saw a horrible doctor dump everything in my lap and tell me that my all over agonisingly painful glands were allRead More →

World of Warcraft: Legion

    Legion is ever so close and so I figured now would be a good time to revisit my Pre-Legion Bucket List. This is my first blog post this month, and an easy one to get me back into the swing of things. I’ve had my exams, and have one more resit assignment due on 5th Sepember. I’ve actually managed to get a lot more of my Bucket list complete than I expected because I’ve been super ill. While there’s been several days in bed/on the couch, the majority of the time it’s much easier for me to be doing something to keep myRead More →

Spoonies R Us

The week started out to a tremendous start; an all day migraine. Bleurgh. I alternated between the bed and the couch, just about managing to binge watch TV (see what I’m watching here!). I finally managed to get to the doctors and talked through some things, including altering my migraine medication. Unfortunately that comes with the side effect of making me very sleepy – something that probably isn’t helped by the fact that I’m trying to sort my sleeping pattern in preparation for my exams. I have two exam dates so far and they’re both morning 🙁 At the moment my days are starting atRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Favourite moments from the Harry Potter series

One thing I noticed when trying to write this prompt; it was very hard to narrow it down to just 5 moments and all the ones I chose came from the later books. I’m not sure why that is, it might be because I was an adult reading about teenagers and so I identified more with them as they got older. Or perhaps it was the culmination of everything, of all the links and stories finally coming together.     Hermione & the boys – Half-Blood Prince This is technically two moments that I am rolling into one. In Half-Blood Prince Hermione slaps Harry onRead More →

Goodbye February

February was the first month of my new blog content and I did better than I expected, although not as well as intended. I’m struggling right now with an unknown viral illness on top of my normal 6 health issues. It started at the beginning of October and despite numerous blood tests, all the doctors have managed to tell me is ‘it’s a viral illness’. It has all the same symptoms as Mono/Glandular Fever but because the test for that keeps coming up negative the doctor I saw refuses to call it that. So I’m in limbo. I’ve been trying to see my normal doctor,Read More →
