Dry January!? Try 6 years being alcohol free! Best thing I ever did!

If you would have told me 11 years ago before I got ill, that I would be alcohol free from 2013 forever, I would have never ever believed you! Pre-illness and in fact pre-children, I was a big drinker! The party animal in fact! Out of all my friends, I was the one that probably would drink them under the table….

Chronic Invisible Illness – A Mothers Perspective – 2 Years on….

My lovely mum wrote a blog 2 years ago in June 2017. As its Mothers Day it seemed perfect timing to give an update 2 years on from her original post. So she has once again put pen to paper and written the below, which I cried over when I read it! It is so lovely to get someone else’s perspective as an onlooker, as with these conditions you do feel rather lonely and feel its your own battle. I am still waiting for my husband to write his blog, he has promised to do one, one day I hope to share this with you.

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…

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?

Turning my anxiety/dizzy world into positives…

I now believe I have been given these health issues for a reason, I was given them to help others. I have always loved helping others but now I have a reason, now I can share my story and my battles and wins and help others get through theirs.

Motivation….

Motivation….mmmmm, it is sometimes a struggle to get motivated….so what makes you get up in the mornings, what motivates you to get on with your day. What inspires and kick starts you to get moving and on with life? Being a positive person, like myself, does not necessarily mean I have the motivation to get…

50 Shades of ailments!

Ailments, we all have them, some more than most! I am in the more than most category! Or as my husband likes to call me the queens of ailments.  My aches and pains, conditions and issues are something I do not wish to have! I do not choose to get up and have an ailment,…

Beautiful products, part of my coping strategy

Ok I might be slightly biased here but I had to spread the news about Coconut Blush! I have used Coconut Blush products in our gift sets at work for about two years now and we LOVE them! One of the reasons I started this blog is to raise more awareness of debilitating vestibular conditions…

Anxious about being anxious

If you had asked me 5 years ago what anxiety felt like, I would not be able to tell you. I had never experienced anxiety ever before! What I might have said and it would have been a guess is…..butterflies in the tummy feeling??!?

Thinking of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

This is an incredibly hard post for me to write, not just because its a bit personal but also cause I am reliving some of it and that hurts. However I wanted to share it with you as I think it will help other people understand CBT a bit more and how it helped me…
