For life's little ups and downs.

A rather quirky, funny and sometimes daunting look in to the life of someone who has a lot of health problems but does their best to keep positive. Punctuated by guinea pigs, anime, superheroes, transforming robots and cross stitching.

I started this blog to tell my story, about who I am and what I do. On top of the health problems and raising awareness for those, I also use my blog as a way to help promote other causes, particularly ones which affect the most vulnerable. I live with a number of different and complex health problems but I refuse to let anything get me down. I know how it feels to be discriminated against or thrown aside. This is me. This is my life. I live it and do what I want with it. Nature sets the limitations. We set the boundaries.

About Me:

A blog about life. I live with Type 1 Brittle Asthma, Bi-Polar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder as well as Various Allergies, Neutropenia, Crohns Disease (my IBS was rediagnosed as Crohns), Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis, PCOS and Osteoporosis and Heredetary Spastic Paraplegia. I have recently also been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea (which makes me stop breathing in my sleep) I live with these conditions, but I refuse to let them keep me down and out. I still try and make the most of my days despite being so poorly and having to rely on my wheelchair, nebulisers, nearly 50 pills a day and 2l/min of oxygen and CPAP.

I'll flap my broken wings and erase it all someday... You'll see.

After Christmas...

I return and hope you all had a nice Christmas and soon I hope you all have a happy new year to match. My Christmas has been an eventful one to say the least, but thanks to Steve, it was at least fun.

It all started on Christmas Eve when I was preparing the veggies for dinner. I was peeling spuds, carrots and sprouts. Everything had been so quiet until I got stuck in to my sprouts and I could hear a familiar squeaking and purring. I walked over to the guinea pig cage, only to be met by the loudest WHEEEEEK! from Patch. By this point the little nutter was climbing the cage and wheeking loudly at me until I checked online whether it would be OK to give them a sprout or two. So the piggies have been spoiled with a few sprouts and they have been very happy about this.

The next morning we woke, had breakfast and our Christmas morning together and it was just as Christmas morning should be, quiet and spent in the company of someone who means the world to me. We cooked lunch together and I set to my surprise for Steve, the complete Sims 2 and my own upgrades, needless to say he was happy about this.

Then was the trip to see his dad. I would be lying if I said I found this a highlight of my day, but as he is a member of Steve's family and family is important, I bared it. Big mistake. First there was the dust, which set me nebbing within minutes. Is it really that much of an effort to dust?! Then there was the toilet which was frankly shameful. I won't go in to that, as it is not a pleasant thing. Then there was the cup of tea, in a filthy and cross-contaminated cup, the result of which was I spent all day yesterday vomiting so violently that I couldn't even keep water down for a long time. It was really not fun, we wound up calling NHS direct for advice as we were getting worried when I sip of water turned me in to a fountain. It cleared in the end, leaving me just a little tired and drained today.

Today was better, JP came round for a while and we played a game called Last Word. It involved cards with subjects and letters and you end up having to find words that start with the selected letter. Mad, but absolutely hilarious! My asthma was being its usual grumpy self, so I was a bit subdued really, but have been amusing myself with the antics of some l'Cie (FFXIII) and a bit of Dissidia.
