Changes! 

Tonight I’m laying in the bath in my sparkly clean bathroom feeling a mixture of feelings. I’m wondering why on earth it’s taken me this long to ACT (Accept and Commit)  After years of living with a chonic illness I thought I had my life pretty much sorted. I have so many little tricks to […]

Irrational fear, the dreaded MRI day has arrived! 

I know my worrying and anxiousness is unnecessary but at the minute I’m finding it hard to think rationally!  It all started 18 months ago when I went for my MRI, this was probably the 8th or 9th one I’d had so was confident it would be fine. I’d never really liked them but never […]

The Three Day Hangover! 

Last week was a fab but ridiculously busy week. I had things planned every single day which left no time for the dull everyday chores that I seem able to forget with ease. Housework… Left… Food shop… Left… Washing… Left… My usual weekly food prep… Left! This would’ve been fine if a) I didn’t use […]

A Date With Plegridy

I spent all last week  wondering why I hadn’t received the call from Bupa yet to arrange delivery of my plegridy. I was completely taken by surprise when a call came at 8.30pm last night with no caller ID! Usually I don’t answer them if I’m not expecting a call but my niece is in […]
