I like having a carer around me who is not only making sure of my wellbeing, but also empowers me to do things myself. I like being able to do what I like. I like knowing that when I get up in a morning that I won't end up being run ragged. The company is good too. What is good about my blog is that it isn't just about moaning about how "bad" my life is or how life "screwed me over". No one actually likes those kinds of blogs and what people admire about me is my strength and courage to smile and say "Yeah, sometimes things suck, but you know what I want to get up and follow my own dreams."
So forgive me if you look at my blog purely to read about my suffering or anything like that but I believe in empowerment and finding the personal will to survive and thrive. A live without struggle is one not lived. A person who goes out and does what they want, when they want may not live forever, but one who just sits on their backside and cowers away from life do not live at all.
I am so grateful to have my Becky-Chan (we are just like sisters, I swear we were separated at birth or something!!) and my precious and beloved Jace, friends like Tom and Nathaniel and the help and support of the people who work just to make sure I am OK and to make sure that my life is the best that it can be. Since getting the assistance from the absolute gems at Helping Hands, I have been able to get out more, socialise and I am getting my confidence back. My figure has come back (under all that pred-weight there was a cute little shape and I enjoy getting dressed and choosing clothes that look good. Rather than clothes I wear to blend in and hide in the shadows.
