PCOS, hopes for D and me #NaturesBestPCOS

By | November 15, 2018

When I was growing up, I guess because of a fractured childhood, all I wanted was to have my own family and a little house, somewhere I could feel secure and watch that family grow. We had D’s Annual Review at school recently and she expressed the same wish, but added in the fact she […]

Guest Post – Borderline Personality Disorder and Me

I’m not sure which name I like better, borderline just makes me think they have […]

Yesterday 

By | October 13, 2018

This post would have been different yesterday, 12th October.  It wouldn’t have been positive, in fact I doubt I’d have completed it. Yesterday marks two years since my first both feet operation and it’s fair to say that I’ve lost my way since then, finding that the tools which used to be so handy for […]

An absence explained

By | January 24, 2018

I’ve been a “tad” absent from the blog lately, a combination of reasons and I can’t seem to access the WP app on my phone or the main site to report it, so this may not publish…anyway.     Life is never boring here but recently it’s scurrying along at quite a manic pace, we […]

Listening – My #WOTW

By | January 12, 2018

We’ve experienced the pluses and minuses of Doctors listening this week, the first has made me hopeful, the second a bit despairing. Yesterday saw D’s annual check-up at the paediatric department where she was formally diagnosed with autism and related issues at age 4.5. She’s now 13 so very used to the environment of a […]

Testing 

By | December 15, 2017

Another issue has dominated our recent week.  Testing. It’s something that’s effected us all, but predominantly T and me. Ever since he started in his mainstream secondary school, we’ve had the distinct feeling that his diagnosis of high functioning autism at age ten has really made no difference.   Any issues like, for example, him […]

The Mammogram #TheMMLinky 

By | November 27, 2017

A couple of weeks ago I had a mammogram.   It wasn’t the first time I’ve had one, my first was about four years ago, after I’d been to the doctor about my wellbeing and she booked me in for a full “MOT” (mammogram, smear, blood tests) to check me out as I had neglected […]

Me and my baseline with @Forthwithlife

By | November 20, 2017

Regular readers of my blogs might remember that I mentioned I’d be obtaining baseline blood tests via Forth, something of interest to me as I knew that the last few years have taken their toll on my wellbeing. The baseline test comprises of: “Our Baseline subscription package is designed to help you to track vital health […]

HD Brows and me

By | November 8, 2017

One advantage of being a blondie is that any (unwanted) hairs don’t show up as quickly as they may for people with darker hair, but a disadvantage is that some hairs might not show up at all! I’m talking about eyebrows, which can really frame your frame and make such a difference to wellbeing and […]
