I’m sorry it’s been so long since posting, but as you can imagine, moving overseas is a big job. Add in several chronic conditions, and it’s been a very difficult couple of months for me. My husband and I are mostly settled in now though. We are living with my parents until we are able… Continue reading Sasha: The Service Dog
I’m going to continue to take a break from writing myself, however I’m going to keep my blog going by posting some guest posts!
Sam, over at My Medical Musings, has kindly told me I can share any of her posts, and I will have some other guest pieces coming up in the next few weeks. Look out for them, as they are some excellent writers that have some really great stories to share.

This is so important, not only so that the general public is just more aware of what our lives are like, living with our conditions, but so that we can fight for more funding… Continue reading Rare Disease Day: February 28th
I have once again picked up some paintbrushes and made some art! This painting is a bit different, as I decided to paint a landscape. I used to walk the River Lea that goes through my town all the time, before I started having mobility issues and my fatigue prevented me from walking too far.… Continue reading Art: The River Lea in Autumn
On Tuesday, I decided to make my husband his favourite cheesecake. It’s a chocolate chip cookie one, with a base of cookie, and more cookie bits baked throughout. Now, I usually bake it in a glass Pyrex dish lined with baking paper. This time, I forgot the paper. I was so tired by the end… Continue reading Swimming Through Brain Fog

It’s a new year, and so I, as many people do, am reflecting on the past year. 2017 was a very mixed year for me. Health I spent most of the year with debilitating migraines that limited my mobility. That meant that I spent many days in bed, and have had to use a walker… Continue reading Happy New Year: Reflecting Back on 2017
