Health #TheMMLinky 

By | October 24, 2017

I’ve been an “autism parent” for nine years now, it feels like it’s flown by at times and at others, it’s gone slower – usually when we’re waiting for the “powers that be” to share their decision on education/health plans etc. I’ve focussed very much on the children’s needs, I have to, to those afore-mentioned […]

Laughter – This Week’s #WOTW

By | September 1, 2017

I most definitely agree with that image this week, in fact it’s the word that sums up our week. Laughter has kept me going through trying to find the right pain relief for my post-op foot.  I’ve found that any tablets taken in the afternoon/evening keep me awake at night with an incredibly wired brain, so I’m […]

Short Term Pain – Week One 

By | August 29, 2017

It’s now a week since I had my operation on my right foot and I thought I’d jot down how I’m feeling and how T and D are coping. As I’ll be also having the left foot remedied – hopefully – January 2018, it will also prompt me that initial painful days and nights will pass. The […]

Positive – My #WOTW 

By | August 25, 2017

Finally we’re at the tail-end of this week, a week I’ve been both dreading and looking forward to, at the same time. This time last week I was in a right old state, nerves about my operation  on Monday and lack of sleep were playing a part.  I must have averaged about two hours a […]

Finally Post Op! 

By | August 21, 2017

Well, the first one of two anyway. At home, in bed and doing a very good impression of a cotton bud! Do you like the arrow? D finds it very funny and I’ve no doubt that it will be added to with some faces and flowers felt-tipped on in the next couple of days. It […]

In Knots – My #WOTW 

By | August 8, 2017

I’ve managed to tie myself up into proverbial knots at the moment, this isn’t a worry about a particular thing but all manner of things as we approach my operation on 21st August. Upon waking every morning I don’t think “oh, it’s (say) Tuesday” or “wonder what the weather is doing”, it’s more of a […]

Getting the facts 

By | February 16, 2017

Beware, this might turn into a rant! I’ve been having to have monthly blood tests to check my liver function as I’m been on some totally yucky tablets for my nails.  They work though but, as getting blood out of me is troublesome, it’s not been pleasant. So, last week I went along and also […]

Feeling better from within with Viviscal 

By | July 29, 2015

This isn’t a post I’ve been asked to write, nor have I received any free products – which is a shame because Viviscal isn’t cheap, but I know it will help me. In January 2014, I managed to damage all the nails on my right hand during the assembling of a trampoline.  Yes, I know […]

Worried – Sun 19th July 2015

By | July 19, 2015

I’ve been grateful for my little daily “happy” pill today, but it hasn’t stopped my stomach churning and twisting over a few things. I guess, without my “happy” pill, I’d have had a cry or two so that’s something, that I still have them.  I did talk with my doctor last week about having one […]

Not Fading To Grey – Sat 11th July 2015

By | July 11, 2015

What a strange title you might think. My little niggles about my wellbeing have become larger.  I’ve cried today and I haven’t done that in ages. The timing of afore-mentioned niggles couldn’t be worse because, with the school holidays looming, I need to see my doctor this week – or it will be September. Google […]
