Hello and Welcome! I am already half in love with you and extremely grateful to you because you took the time to even turn up at my little wellness blog!
Before you read any further I’d like to apologise for the crap image, one day I might have some fancy professional photography of me laughing on a yacht, but for now this was the best selfie I could find, mainly because my bored, half asleep pup is obscuring half my face!
If you haven’t read any of my posts yet, please do not fear, hopefully you will soon be put at ease that this isn’t a preachy place where only zen like achievers are allowed to hang. No no, this is a place for the rest of us, the normal aspiring zen like achievers who can’t quite be arsed come to hang out, share and chat. Hopefully along the way we might just be able to inspire each other to make some small and not overly bothersome steps away from chronic ill health and towards Chronic Wellness instead.
My personal journey is one of a sickly customer! Neurological events, fibromyalgia, plus a series of possible but unconfirmed other aliments in the mix sometimes leave me with feelings of ‘ have I done to deserve this?‘ and ‘I’m just not strong enough for life‘. But I’ve reached a point where I’ve had enough, had enough of waiting to be fixed, had enough of waiting for the next thing to hit. So I’ taking back control, one small thing at a time and seeing what I can do to make changes to my lifestyle that can ultimately change my life.
I’m not saying it will be easy, and I’m not saying I won’t have fails at implementing new things, forget to take my vitamins (all the sodding time) and possibly have the occasional mega strop (occasional may be an understatement), but with you (hopefully more than one person who is actually my mum – hi mum) by my side, I’m even more determined to give it a try.
I’ll share it all, thoughts feelings, crack pot ideas and self experiments, the ups and the downs, the highs and the lows. But the one thing I do want to try and do is end on a positive note each and every time, because whilst it’s good to discover someone else is in the same boat, the last thing you need is me sinking yours with my shit, when I’m sure you’ve got plenty of your own.
If you like what you see and want to subscribe I’ll generally not bother you more than once a week without good reason, and I’ll keep you updated with whats going on with me and in the world of Chronic Wellness.
If you don’t like what you see, fair play, the small black cross is only a mouse scroll away.
