Since its Mental health awareness day today I thought I’d share a few quotes which I think could be quite helpful or relatable.
Never be afraid to let your guard down, take off that brave face and open up and talk. Never suffer alone.
Things insensitive people say on the outside that really doesn’t help you or your mental health. Concentrate on the inside and those who want to understand the issues you’re facing.
Please know that you can’t simply be strong everyday, it’s just impossible. Even the strongest have bad days.
Go on the day the best you can and seek nobody else’s approval.
Please remember to take care of number one… Which is you ♥️
Thought it had been a while since I did one of these updates on my health. So here’s the rundown.
My appears from nowhere, for no rhyme or reason at the moment.
I get a tight chest, my thoughts are all over the place, I feel lightheaded and think I’m going to faint. The anxiety relievers I use are a stress ball type thing if it’s within reach at the time or the apps I’ve downloaded on my phone especially for anxiety. I’ll let you know them in a later post.
If I’m near my bed I lie down and listen to music or a guided meditation. It does help alot at the time.
It was going swimmingly, no problems as such and then it started leaking. So bag changes were and still are a bit of a performance.
My kidneys seem to be doing overdrive, I have an ultrasound at the end of the month so I’ll know more about that then.
I have to have another major op on my skin and stoma in the next 4 months to sort the problems out.
I was iron deficient but from last test I’m OK but still gotta take these horrible tablets.
It’s not been too bad actually I do however find myself going off to bed early like half 7 at night some evenings.
My voice goes and my voice gets sore when my body thinks I’ve overdone it. Some days I feel exhausted even after 8 hours sleep. But I find a happy medium most of the time where I can have a nap if needs be or just a lie down.
FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER
My mobility is very up and down, when my body cooperates its good when it doesn’t I have to either use my wheelchair all the time or go into hospital if it is a real bad episode. We have had our shower adapted, so showering is much easier. Before we had a tiny closed in cubicle now it’s a lovely big wet room.
Most days my body is aching. I use wheat bags or a hot water bottle as I find heat it a great healer.
I wish I could have someone on tap for massage because I find that relieves the aches too. I want a new matteress one that your body just molds into, but until I’ve had my op it’s on hold.
So there you are the life of a chronically ill peach.
But blogging keeps me going and writing is my passion so I won’t stop.
Thanks for stopping by

Take a seat I’m going to tell you a story.
So I’m nearly 34 and I’ll tell you something… Even though I am not where I expected to be or dreamt of being… I have been on one hell of a journey…and it has made me the person I am today.
I have suffered abuse/bullying its made me be more aware.
I’ve had my heart broken it’s taught me it mends within time.
I have stumbled into poor health, it makes me stronger and fight harder.
I had a crush on someone of the same sex. It taught me that gender doesn’t matter.
I have accomplished things in life which shows me to never give up on something you want.
I have witnessed divorce with my parents it’s taught me that love doesn’t always last forever.
I’ve met people from all walks of life and it’s made me realise that everyone has a story and no two stories will ever be the same.
That’s my little Sunday storytime. Thanks for stopping by.

Sorry I haven’t been writing on the blog, my mobility issues bought me into hospital at the weekend.
My whole body was paralysed and I felt like I was pinned to the bed. It truly is a awfully annoying illness to have. So for the past 3 days I’ve been in a hospital bed surrounded by older people. I love the older generation but these are less sociable so my iPad has been a blessing.
I hope to be home very soon and to recover better in the comfort of my own bed. My creative juices are still there but I need to listen to my body and relax a bit.
Here is a video from back in the summer if you want to get to know me a bit better
I really want to do videos on my channel again in the new year just hope you guys will watch them too.
I will try and write on here once I settle back into my surroundings ( my bedroom)
Love you guys and I hope you all are getting in the festive mood 😘
