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.

Embrace Your Dreams

I haven't blogged for a while. It's not because of a hectic lifestyle or my lack of things to talk about. It's been a result of having some news that I have only just been able to come to terms with. That and my rather lovely laptop was having some minor issues. Issues I have since sorted out and now have my "thought-box" back. Plus with a few other things around me, I have been able to get myself back on some kind of track, what with help from my wonderful friends, boyfriend and adoptive sister. Together we have managed to actually get a lot of ME back and I for one feel great to be able to smile. relax and say "Hey".

As for the laptop issue, well that was interesting in itself, seems the ribbon had worn out on a part and (because it is never really that simple is it?) the whole thing needed to be replaced with a new one. Its normal wear and tear really, considering that this is a laptop that has been in use for just over 3 years and has been my constant companion for that time. To finally see results during it's restoration and its nice to see that Bahamut is still as it always has been. I'm glad of it. Not because of any other reason than it has been a labour of love really.

2 weeks without it working properly has been both a welcome break and an absolute torment as I have had to rely on either my phone, tablet or the rather large and clunky desktop that resides in our bedroom. Don't get me wrong, I am fond of the computer, just not so fond of it's occasional tempremental attitude, but hey, we can't have it all can we? But then again I have always seen things in terms of as long as it works then I am contented so you know, I can just smile and laugh at the "personality" the computer has really, I think it's as much a part of this residence, along with the rather eclectic tastes of decor or ornamentation and it all collides to create a place where pleasured moments are had by everyone.

I suppose the other more recent developments in my life right now have been the growth of which my relationships are taking form, the days when I smile and laugh with the people I love the most are the days that remind me that I have been given a second chance at doing this and I appreciate it more than words can say. I take the time I have to spend with people who make me feel like a worthwhile individual as well as continuing with my art, music, photography and needle work (and of course my writing). Yes I dedicate a load of time to just doing what I please, but also, I CHOOSE to be happy and I actually CHOOSE to enjoy myself. And that is what is important. Isn't it?
