its been a while!!

Hi there! Yep I am still here & yes it has been a while!! Too long in fact.

Thank you to all the lovely people who have read my blog & emailed me. I apologise that I do not keep in touch very well, but it is always great to hear from you all & I try to reply & keep in touch as best as I can.

I am struggling at the moment with my energy levels & my throat is coming up & down depending how tired I am. Over the past 3 weeks I have spent a great deal of time stuck in  bed or on the sofa.

Everything seemed to come to a head after my last appointment at Leeds. We went for a follow up appointment after our first go at IVF which failed :-(
I needed to release the emotions by cleaning etc & did far too much, followed by more too much etc & now I am paying the price for the energy & the emotional energy the IVF took plus the energy & I have stupidly spent trying to ignore I have ME.....yes I I'm afraid I have fallen back into the 'I don't have ME, if I just do this I'll be fine!!' day stuck in bed feeling as awful as possible!!

Sleep has been a problem too but is getting better again. Trying not to go back onto the tablets but now & then I have a couple just so I get at least one nights sleep!!

Ok well I've rambled enough for tonight so I'll go see how my ebay is doing & then try going to bed.
Night night x

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! 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…

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 😁

Baby on the way ...

....after 7 years of trying to conceive. A failed go at IVF last year (Jan 2011) & losing hope it would ever happen. My naturally conceived surprise miracle baby is due this Thursday 25th October. I cannot begin to tell you the shock and joy we have felt so far. Not just my husband and i but family and friends also. There are so many people excited to meet our little miracle its overwhelming. Having ME i was very concerned about the pregnancy. I had no idea I was even pregnant until i was 6 weeks. There were signs but we didn't believe them as in the past it was constant heart ache looking at a negative test. To see those 2 little lines was amazing!Up to about 16 weeks it was a struggle with nausea, constant indigestion and awful head aches, but once i got past that bit i felt like i was on top of the world. I've not felt "well" mentally or physically in so many years its been like living someone else's life. With only a few days to go i am constantly being a…
