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.

That Moment...

I think in life there are many points which we would consider as that moment in time when we feel our lives change, sometimes for the better, others not so. In myself, I have hit that point in my life where I am fed up of being at home, feeling ill and sorry for myself and have decided that despite my health problems, I am going to just go out and enjoy myself and my life. It is too short to focus on bad stuff any more and I for one am fed up of dwelling on the past and letting people get to me. I long got out of the habit of being lectured to or ordered around by another person and I do not intend to begin again. I am in charge of my own fate and I am in charge of my own life.

I am feeling rather unwell still and my asthma is not letting me have it particularly easy today I must say it is not helped when someone visits my home and decides to get threatening or abusive towards me. Unfortunately as a result my asthma has gone haywire and I could very well end up in hospital again. I am not interested anymore in ANY of this and I know where I stand. I know what I am talking about, heck part of my course covers Libel and Slander. If you really need a definition then I suggest that you get a dictionary as you have admitted everything I said was truth, so unfortunately NOT slander. Thank you very much.

I have been advised by several friends that I should contact the police, particularly about an incident involving the purchase of a pink noose as that is actually a threat to my life, but to be honest, I am going to treat people like this with the contempt they deserve and not let them ruin my life. I am much better for all of this and I am not the one who could wind up with a criminal record as a result.

Tonight, I am going out, for the first time in about 2 years and 5 months, a night out is going to be just that, and not a trip in an ambulance. If I need that I want to at least have tonight where I can block it out and enjoy life as a 23 year old woman and not an invalid. After everything I went through, I think I deserve that. I am not going to say any more about anything to do with the situation and the bed someone else made for themselves, heck, I am not even going to refer to them by name. I have much better people in my life and I deserve for once to be happy. That is what I am going to be. I am going to be happy and enjoy my life, my friends and my wonderful animals.

As for my animals, still no word on Jenova's pups yet, but she is getting rather chunky and looks like a mummy. She likes to try and play cards with Tom which we found very funny as she kind of wandered over and took the bottom cards from his Solitaire hand! Cheeky little so and so! She then proceeded to try and eat my bookcase, my hair straightener and then twanging the bars to her cage looking at me rather sweetly! Still isn't one for lap-time but she will cuddle sometimes, when the mood takes her.

Gizmo is looking a bit down at the moment, so me and Tom took him in to the bedroom for some special cuddle time. He seemed OK with it and chattered at us before trying to jump in to my dressing gown! They are all little characters, they really are. Hope STILL humps everything in sight and Patch, well he is just affectionate and purrs at me whenever I give him a fuss. Between us, we are spending time between Selly Park and Redditch. Last night we went back to Redditch and chilled at my place for a while. I notice we spend more time at mine than anywhere else, its just been Thursday night and tonight that we have spent at Tom's.

Well, I will leave my blog there for now and I am going to go and get ready for a cracking night out which will not be spoiled by anyone!
