Counting on Wellbeing – Tues 9th Jan 2018

By | January 9, 2018

I didn’t share a positive yesterday, in truth I couldn’t think of one, it was a “bit” of a stressful day. I’m not going into details apart from hormonal teens + autism + sensory issues + illness hanging around + waiting for a further (and I hope final) operation date all added up to one […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Got the Virus #WOTW #R2BC 

By | February 9, 2017

It’s funny isn’t it, the little things we find that just keep us going, in times of stress, things that enhance our wellbeing. Mine used to be chocolate, still is tbh, but it has been replaced by something a bit better for me and that produces a nice end result (you can’t always say that […]

“Within Normal Range” – Sat 16th July 2016

By | July 16, 2016

That would be me, that was how I was described at a dermatology appointment this week.  I do wonder how individuals can be classed as “within normal range”, when there is no previous results for them.  I was also described as something else, but more of that later. Take iron, for example, the “normal range” […]
