Soo… I’m restarting this blog for a few reasons.
Firstly because I think it’s important to speak out about chronic illness, especially for all the sufferers out there that cannot share their voice and also to hopefully share some insight into the day to day life of a chronically ill person. I hope to be able to be able to help others out there going through the same crap, even if it’s just to help them feel slightly less alone.
Secondly, to hold myself accountable for my own chronic illness journey. I would like to share the ups and downs and the things I’m doing to try and help improve my day to day life.
Thirdly, to show that you can have a life around being ill. It’s not the be all and end all, even though it damn well feels like it at times. It is possible to be fulfilled, happy and work round the pesky illnesses that try and stop us.
Of course, I realise everyone’s story is different, illnesses and severity change vastly from person to person. This is just my story and my way of learning to live through it and if it can help even one person, then it’s worth sharing.
