For the first time, I sit in a crowed loud cafe, sipping Earl Grey tea and munching on vegan gluten free chocolate chip biscuits as I write this... I feel small, as though I don't matter to anyone right in this moment. Everyone talking around me, volumes getting louder and louder as one group tries … Continue reading When fibro attacks!
Whilst I'm still having bouts of fatigue, I'm having to try my best to pull through them and work on some new products for an event being held this weekend. I'm so looking forward to being able to crash completely, and not have to worry about getting up to do anything. I mean, as much … Continue reading I’ll be writing again soon!
I've been wanting to write a blog post for some time, but I've not only been busy, but I've also been hit with the fatigue of fibro. Most likely from overdoing things, which is annoying considering there's so much which needs to get done. We've got a stall next weekend for our local Pride, and … Continue reading Welcome to June
It's been a week since my last appointment with my care coordinator. I've found it a little hard at times not knowing I will be able to see her to have a chat about how I'm coping.

My skin picking consists of me picking at … Continue reading Review: Fidgets!
The worst part about fatigue is the inability to focus. Your eyes just want to close and stay shut, no matter how hard you try to keep them open. Your body feels weak, floppy and heavy.

FYI, I'm still aware of my To-Do list, I haven't forgotten... In fact, I'm about to check off another one. Let's go to point 2, as it'll be a short one...! Being blamed for something you haven’t done ✔ Being ignored, and yet you keep trying to get a response How my mental health affects me … Continue reading Being ignored!
... I'm being discharged! Now, I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this. I had a meeting with my care co-ordinator and Lauren yesterday, after my care co-ordinator contacted me and suggested Lauren join us for the meeting, and we discussed the options for what happens after she leaves. It was obvious that I … Continue reading It’s official…
I'm working through my list of things to write about, and I'm sorry for it going so terribly slow. Every day brings new distractions, and the majority of it is emptying boxes and sorting through things, having since moved into our new place! Yes, we moved into our new place 4 weeks ago, and we're … Continue reading Moving home
