When I got sick, coming up on 3 years ago now, my life was hijacked and became about recovering and mis-understanding my recovery and confusion. The process of looking for what was wrong, trying different approaches and recognising what I could and couldn't do, left me quite directionless as far as work, relationships and achievement … Continue reading Not one direction?
It's a little bit funny...all these feelings inside... Ok so I've borrowed that from the start of an Elton John song. I've woken up early this morning (5:37am) dead tired, sore neck still - it's been almost 3 months now - and wondered to myself where to from here? Just over 2 years ago, I got … Continue reading This is a big, fat drag!
This time is not like last year when everything tasted like metal for about a month. No-one could really pin down what the reason was but the most likely culprit was candida overgrowth. I couldn't even drink peppermint tea without a nasty metallic taste. I'm sure I could find the posts where I wrote about … Continue reading I’m struggling with food again
I've thought about and started a lot of different posts in the last 2 weeks and haven't finished any of them. I haven't felt able to clearly express what's in my head and haven't had to the time to work on polishing something that wasn't finished or 'right'. So all I'm going to write about … Continue reading This is not a metaphor
They're easy to read Lists gives you a sense of achievement People like to see items on lists they've already completed to check them off No imagination on the part of the writers? Attention spans are ... Have you noticed they never seem to go much higher than the mid-teens? Think about the psychology. I've read listicles citing the three … Continue reading The rise of the listicle – why is everything in list form these days?
The last 2 weeks have been a new hell. A sinus infection raged out of control for at least a week. I couldn't sleep well at night, the pain in my forehead, my jaw and seemingly my teeth waking me up. The ache in my right ear every time I swallowed. The stuff I was blowing … Continue reading The Beach
It's late again. The internet's switched off. It's almost as if that off switch turns on the power to complete the train of thoughts that have been scratching around the back of my mind all day. I've been really hard on myself for the last week, without even realising it. The psychologist told me to ban … Continue reading What’s going on in my mind?
It reminds me what a construct time is. We all agree to just change the time by an hour to suit ourselves. And even if we don't agree, it gets changed anyway. My 4 year old hasn't quite grasped the concept of time yet. She knows the days of the week but doesn't know when … Continue reading When the clocks go back…
But I'll try to make it funny to make up for that... Today I decided to do an adrenal hormone profile, in my quest to find out what is wrong with me, which sounds like sitting down and answering some thorough questions about your energy levels. Or perhaps what might be listed on the side of … Continue reading Warning: this post will mostly be about saliva
Strap yourselves in... Yesterday I travelled over an hour's round trip for my second appointment with the new doctor who I had placed quite a bit of hope in (realised or not) and when I got there... they'd given my appointment away. Not only that, the 3 receptionists there made a big deal of asking everyone … Continue reading I have a lot to say
