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

As September ends it’s time to reflect on the things the past month has bought me happiness so here goes…
Goodbye flip flops Hello Boots
I found 3 out of the 4 boots below in the charity shop. The most expensive being £7.99 and I am absolutely awful at walking in heels so when I spotted the wedges my eyes lit up. The third pair down are from Deichman and were £19.99. They are a replacement from last years. Yes I also love suede if you hadn’t guessed.
Primark Autumnal wear
I generally just wear black, pink or leopard print but I thought I would switch it up a gear and go for some different colours. First is this Burgundy cut out on the shoulder cropped jumper I usually put a little black strappy top on underneath so I am not baring no skin.
Next is this khaki coloured quite basic long sleeved ribbed top with a bit of lacing done along the chest area which gives it a bit of an edge. Both of these tops were £8 and I team them up with the skinnys below.
High waisted skinny jeans £13 each pair and they have stretch in them too which allows a bit of what you fancy and still have moving room
