Self belief….

Over the years I have had an issue with self esteem and self belief. I think when you are chronically ill you can get into the mindset of being a non believer. Thinking that nothing is possible. Even trips down to the local shop to get some milk and bread are a big task! A…

Love and Hate relationship with Meditation….

Before I got ill in 2010, I had no clue about meditation. If you had asked me what it was back then, I would have shown you a blank bemused face, and said “someone cross legged on the floor with the two fingers together humming?”.  I had no idea that I would be getting into…

1 year on……

I cannot believe that one year has flown by since I started the private support group on Facebook. Where has that time gone! I started my blog in January 2017 and have never looked back. It is simply one of the best things I have ever done, obviously second to me giving birth to my…

Testing day! And my journey up to now…in brief!

So today was the day I popped back to Royal Surrey County Hospital Audiology (my second home!) for testing. I was going for two reasons, one to have a VEMP test (will explain what that is in a moment!) and the second was to have a positional test done (for BPPV). The last time I…

You are in control….

Whilst I sit here struggling to stay upright on this seat, due to severe rocking after my recent big vertigo attack on the 20th May, I felt compelled to write a new blog post.

It is important to me, it is my destiny.

Support……lets go deep

Support….what does it mean? To me support means a multitude of things. We need support throughout our lives for a number of reasons, but when the sh*t really hits the fan, who is there to support you when you need it most?

New chapter awaits…

Life has ups and downs, highs and lows, good days and the horrible bad days. I have been pondering over something for a long time but just really could not decide what to do for the best…..so let me tell you a bit of background… I have always worked, since I left college at 18…

Distractions – diverting your mind away from dizziness….

Over the years there is one main thing I have learnt which helps with my symptoms Distractions.

When my mind is occupied it really helps me feel better. It does not matter which symptom is heightened, when I am distracted it helps keep my mind of that symptom/s. Ok they do not totally go away but it dampens them down a bit!

Taste Inc – Chicken snack Review!

I have to say over the years I have purchased many chicken products, as I LOVE chicken! Pretty much every time I stop at petrol stations or shops I always pick up chicken in packets for a snack as I love having lots of protein in my diet. However most of them have been terrible….
