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.

Kidney Infection and General Feeling of Ick...

OK so I have been quite absent again which is a sign really of how I have been feeling. I woke up about a week ago with pains in my back, a temp and just generally felt like utter shit frankly. All I did from last Thursday to yesterday was sleep. And I mean really sleep. I had all the classic symptoms of an old adversary, something that made my teenage years frankly the most uncomfortable that one can be when battling this viral infection. I am talking about, of course the teenage nemesis, Glandular Fever.

So I had this not so wonderful combination of Glandular Fever, food poisoning because of a frankly poorly kept kitchen AND I find out to boot that I have a wonderful and somewhat painful kidney infection. The cause of 2 of these problems? Somebody got complacent. AGAIN?! I mean, how many times do I have to get sick before he can LEARN that dirty kitchen = I GET SICK!!! I find it so frustrating at times and in some ways, I wish that we could swap for one whole week and he could actually see first hand what I go through and how he could, if he wanted to, actually take the steps to stop it happening time and again. I guess its up to me to pick up the slack and remind him that it needs doing or I will get really REALLY ill.

So the other day I went out with Penny, I love our outings, they're lovely and they really make me feel less, well contained in my home. I was in a lot of pain and discomfort and kept suffering dizzy spells or that feeling that I was going to be sick. OK so all I have truthfully eaten today was a concoction of random but lovely foods, but there has been nothing else thats really tempted my appetite and because I starved all day, my old friend and demon started to pester me. I remembered the 3 month crash diet that I ended up on because of my appendix and how skinny I was at a measly 7 stone. Maybe a part of me wants to do that all again even though it was killing me. I just felt so vulnerable when it came to my weight recently.

Not helped by the fact that I have barely been able to eat anything. Even a small meal has been too much for my stomach to handle. I feel full or nauseous, and I can't even drink much which is really weird. I have no reason as to why I just don't feel like eating. I just didn't feel up to it.

Maybe this will pass?
