  • Fibromyalgia -Getting a Diagnosis

    Getting a diagnosis for chronic pain and fibromyalgia Recently I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, by a doctor at the local surgery,  in a matter of minutes. I didnt have to be referred to a hospital consultant and wait months for an appointment. I am astonished! I have had years of undiagnosed chronic pain. I have tried numerous times to get my regular gp to send me "Somewhere/Anywhere" to get a diagnosis, so ...

  • Normal

    ​​​​I just want to be like everyone else. On days like today, when I am forced to choose whats best for my mental wellbeing over living a more "normal" life I feel so frustrated and angry with my life.

  • Breathe In Write Out

    I find writing helps me to reclaim the balance between what going on in my head and what’s going on in the real world. It’s a way to release the emotions behind those thoughts, removing the fear and anxiety that follows me throughout the day.

  • WRITING TO RECOVERY

    I am writing to recovery! Years ago I enjoyed writing, but I forgot, with the brain fog and the debilitation of enduring mental illness these past 7 years. Am I surprised to be doing this again after all this time and previous attempts going down like a lead balloon?  Yes and No. That's me all over, swinging on the scales of procrastination haha! But hey ho, I believe 7 is my lucky ...
