Chronic illness Health Personal

A Health Update 

Because illness has become a very big part of my life. I can’t just ignore the fact that life has changed for me big time. Before I would wake up and think what can I do today? Now I wake up and the first thing I think of, are my legs. 

Since the last update I have been in hospital again. Luckily they let me home the next day, as my really good friend lent me a single bed and the occupational therapist gave us enough mobility aids to start a shop. So my bedroom is now in the living room.


My legs are in paralysis 90% of the time so they are pretty useless. So it’s from the bed to the wheelchair and then back to bed with the help of mum and a couple aids too.

It’s hard as hell, I tell you.

If you look back at my blog in July – talking about walking miles around the city before watching our musical, that was literally 2 months ago. Now I can barely walk a yard.

Most of the time I’m extremely positive,  as I think it’s better than wallowing in something that can’t be helped. There is the odd day where all I do is cry. But hey I’m only human.


Until I have an appointment come through for the specialist I just have to plod on the best I can.

All this I couldn’t do without my wonderful mum and also the brilliant support of my friends too.

It’s 2 in the morning as I’m writing this I just can’t sleep. I find writing therapeutic so I thought why not do an update.

That’s all to report on the health front.

See you in the next post

  1. Gosh, sounds like a nightmare for you. Do you have a diagnosis yet? I hope it is only a temporary problem for you and that the hospital can help you. Xxx

  2. Oh Holly, I wish the circumstances were different but I’m glad to see you blogging through it all. Please keep us updated as I think about you often. I’m glad you’re in good spirits and I hope you’re able to see the specialist soon. Whatever’s happening, know that your support team includes those of us who know you through blogging as well! P.S. The new blog look is really cute!! xx

    1. Thank you babe it’s so lovely to know that I’m thought of. I hope to hear something by the end of the week or possibly next week. I got a bit bored and thought my blog needed a little girly look. I thought of you the other day and wondered if you had done anymore decorating recently. I’ll get back into reading blogs again real soon missed it a lot. Much love to you chick 😘
