Stages of a Chronic Illness

Hi guys!!
YAY I finally been able to upload a YouTube video onto this blog after I have tried for such a long time, so I'm very happy with this!! I hope you like this video, it's a little different to anything I have created before. I want to show how body language can speak without words and show how when you're chronically ill and the pain affects people. 


I would love to hear your feedback on this video. Would you like to see more like this? Could you relate to what you have seen in the video? Anyway that's enough from me in this post and thank you so much if you get to watch the video, and enjoy reading my blog. I hope to see you in my next post!! See you soon xxx

Self Care Guide

Hi guys!! 
It’s Wednesday and I think you’re all due a new blog post from me 😊 since last Wednesday evening, I have felt pretty rubbish both physically and emotionally. It’s only as yesterday evolved that I began to feel a bit more myself. I’m sure many other people with E.D.S or similar chronic disabilities will have questioned ‘why me, I hate this’ personally I haven’t but it doesn’t mean I have spent many a time, sitting on my bed in tears at feeling fed up/frustrated or in a lot of pain because I have. Living with severe anxiety and panic disorder really makes it more challenging as well. I think I was born the way I am because I know I can be strong when I need to be and I have an outlook that people seem to like about me.  So, what’s the reason why I’m telling you all the above is because I found the following picture as it seems like something that could be beneficial to both me and you. So let’s look at it and I’ll discuss it further with you below.  Starting with social self ca…

10 Yr Anniversary // Wrist Fusion

Image
Hi peeps,
So it’s been ten years since I had my wrist fused and the journey has certainly not been easy or pretty from the word go!! I’m going to share with you the story of what I have been through from before the surgery and the time since. I can’t remember certain things but I can remember most of it all.  Growing up; I was used to getting injuries, different pains, and various dislocations so at first, I just thought it was another thing like usual when I started getting pain in my left hand. It caused a bit of pain when I moved my little finger but it wasn’t dislocated or broken. I preservered with it for a bit before I decided to get it checked out. Some time later; I was referred to a local orthopaedic surgeon who I had seen many times over the years so he knew me. As usual, he had X-rays done and said ‘I’m referring you to Wrightington Hospital. I don’t want to perform surgery on you with you having EDS, but they’re more specialist than I am.’ So I agreed. 

This was about seven m…

World Mental Health Day - 2017

Hi peeps!! 
So today it is World Mental Health Day and I thought why don’t I share my story?! I can’t remember exact dates etc but I can remember what I’ve been through and how it felt. So let’s get into it shall we?!
For as long as I can remember; I’ve always had some kind of issues but I guess that comes with the territory of having a rare connective tissue disorder causing me to have complicated health issues. Although it was just a part of my life; being in and out of hospital so this wasn’t so much an issue for. My first memory of suffering with anxiety and stress was when it was the period between leaving my primary school and senior school. Everyone else in my class knew which school they were going to but I didn’t as it was being dealt with by the local education authority. I remember I started pulling my hair out and by the time we realised what I’d been doing was when I had a little bald patch. To be honest, if you look at Michael Jackson from when he had his burns accident, i…

MODA BRUSHES

Image
Hi peeps!! 
How you doing? I hope you’ve all had a fab week. My week has been all right, just a normal one. 
I recently purchased some new makeup brushes. They are the MODA PRISMATIC FACE PERFECTING KIT. I actually found these in my local Asda store after browsing on their website. They cost £20 which I think is a great price for these. You get 4 brushes in the pack. 

In the above photo, you can see the full packaging so you know what to look for if you ever choose to purchase them. 

They do feel quite sturdy and are light to hold. The Brush 801 has a heavy head but I wouldn’t expect it to be not as it’s much larger than the others. For me personally, I find them easier to grip and hold as my cutlery is angled and have chunky foam handles. I would recommend these type of brushes to anyone who has mobility issues.  I think they look really pretty too with the way they start of green in the handles and turn pink at the Brush ends. The word MODA is slightly imprinted into the handles as you c…

Looking For Blog Guidance

Hi peeps!! 
Hope you’re all keeping well my lovely peeps. I know my posting is a little irregular at the moment, I am trying to get into a routine where I post on certain days etc.  At the moment; I keep trying to focus on posting a YouTube video on a Wednesday evening and maybe a Saturday on the odd occasion, then my blog preferably on a Monday and possibly a Friday. I don’t like to make excuses but I do the best I can when it’s physically possible for me. Blogging is easier in some ways as I can just sit and write away on my blogging app no matter where I am (as long as I have WiFi!). It’s not always easy to find inspiration and you can read more on this in my ‘The Penny Has Dropped’ post.  I’m not one for sticking to just one thing and like to do many things, as it can get a little repetitive for me. I’m still learning about many things so I’m no expert in things such as makeup, fashion etc and I don’t want to put myself as a consistent ‘beauty blogger’ for that reason I just said…
