Memories

It’s been a while since I wrote a personal post. I’ve just been doing prompts, linkups and weekly series and getting more and more frustrated with that fact. It’s great to have regular content, however, I’ve had zero energy to actually do anything else. April was just a mess, and while May seemed to begin with a fresh start it has devolved into the same as April. Pain, fatigue, migraines. That’s my daily routine right now and yes, it sucks beyond belief. On top of that I’ve been adding a pile of extra stress, from the important to the mundane, and I’ve realised that IRead More →

thoughts on returning to physio

Tomorrow is my first physio session with the Centre for Integrative Care, which is a homoeopathic hospital designed for people like me who have multiple health conditions; “Most patientsĀ referred to the Centre are experiencing chronic pain, chronic low energy, and/or chronic low mood or anxiety”. I’ve had plenty of physio before, I know what to expect, and I know what goes on. The thing that is making me really nervous is that this is an NHS physio. Last time I went to see an NHS physio I ended up walking out of the appointment because the woman was extremely unprofessional. Instead of concentrating on whatRead More →

Geek Blogs Unite: Disney Theme - Favourite Disney Songs

I’m taking part in Geek Blogs Unite themed topic about the Happiest Place on Earth, Disney! I decided to write about my favourite Disney Heroines, and you’re probably thinking, well yeah, of course, she’s a girl. Duh… right? That’s a little bit of it. I’m a girl, and a feminist, so celebrating women is something I like to do. However, the reasoning behind this post goes a bit deeper. Last year when Carrie Fisher sadly passed away there were a lot of quotes, memories and comments going around social media. One that stuck in my head was about how she taught a whole generation ofRead More →

Magical March selfie a day challenge

I was invited to take part in a selfie a day challenge by Kayla of Epicfied for March and decided to give it a go. Selfies, or any photos of myself really, have become a very sore subject for me in recent years. Weight gain and suffering from Dermatillomania (compulsive sick picking) has made me very self conscious. The problem is that both become a vicious circle which combined with chronicle illness and depression just keeps on going and going. I also had some reservations about filling my instagram with my face every day, and how people wouldn’t want to see my ugly mug allRead More →

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 →
