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.
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.

So here he is in all his glory. My rescue pup, Kadaj. Hes a tiny little creature with such a sweet little face, and so many wounds, both physical and emotional. I can only imagine what this poor little thing has been through in his 6 weeks of life. Half of his ears have been taken away in chunks and he has so many cuts and scars on his little back. Poor little angel must have been through hell.
I am glad we went to look at the adoption centre at Pets At Home, or this little guy may have never found a "forever home" and would have been put to sleep. We had room for him so we took him home with us, but we won't be adopting anymore now.
