Hospital Appointment

I went to see the head ache clinic Nurse for the first time today. She was very nice, chatty & friendly. She was happy with what I have been doing so far e.g I don't drink tea or coffe, smoke, drink alcohol I'm trying ti eat healthy & I only really drink water. The only thing I need to remember is to keep a little diary & drink more water than I am.
I am back again end September to see how I am getting on. I am now taking 50mg of Amitriptyline & she said she may put me up to 75mg depending how I am in Sept. Its a month by month thing she said.
Ironically I have had the best day I have had in weeks (other than the constant pains!!)
I have been putting links all over facebook & emailed everyone to try & help with awareness.
Tomorrow I am going to my friends house for a massage appointment which I hope will help with my neck & back. I will also hear & get all the info re my fundraising raffle...so fingers crossed I should be able to order some tickets tomorrow. I am just not sure how many to buy!!
Thank you to everyone who wished me luck with the appointment.

Forever Living ~ Aloe Vera

Hi. It's been a very long time since I posted on any of my blogs. Apologies!Since having my wonderful son I just haven't really had time for anything. My crafting and drawing is on permanent hold and I spend my time looking after him and managing my ME.However! ....as my benefits are coming to an end in June and I really want to try something for myself I have decided to become a forever living distributor.
I have been attending interviews at the job centre as I am now down as "fit for work" but there's no way I can go back to employment i'm not that "fit" and I want to spend time with my son. To be fair the job centre have been very patient and helpful and doing this will not effect my benefits whilst I'm still receiving them.Why forever you ask? Well I have used their products for a long time now and as it's very flexible it will fit perfectly around my ME and being a mum.I'm not officially a distributor yet but by the end of this comi…

Crafting is my Therapy. What's Yours?

I suffer with chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety and depression. Together they can make me a very fatigued, emotional, angry, withdrawn person. I over do things because keeping busy takes me away from the anxiety and depression, but the truth is all I am doing is running straight into the arms of my fatigue monster when I do it! This picture is something I thought of the other day to explain this feeling. 
I try to meditate and I am starting to do small amounts of stretching and yoga, but the one thing that helps keep relaxed and sane, and has done for many years now is my crafting. I love all kinds of crafts. My latest makes are my CE tested Sensory Monsters "The Peepos" they are great to touch and cuddle when you're feeling blue. 
I have also found my online friends in the crafting communities and chronic fatigue groups very helpful and comforting. Stops you feeling so isolated. 
Something that brings me happiness is helping others which I hope to do with my sensory to…

Research brings me to GAPS

After much time away from alot of things I've had time to think and reflect. I've done a vast amount of reading and research due to my own problems with the M.E and candida and my sons food allergies/intolerances. My research brought me to the book Gut and Psychology by Dr Natasha Campbell-Mcbride It was a very interesting read on top of other research I had previously done I was sure reading it that the only way forward was for me to at least give GAPS diet a go. So tomorrow I shall start day 1 and I have decided to record my journey with it on here. Please excuse my lack of sense in this post. It's late, I'm tired but felt I needed to get this out so I had made a start!Bring on tomorrow 😁
