This last week I have been finding very hard to cope with. It's partly been the 3 different appointments I've had, it's partly been the weather but what has totally floored me has been the cold my gorgeous niece shared with me!! You'd have thought that with all the conditions I have and the fact … Continue reading Floored!!
I found out yesterday (when looking on a few incontinence support websites) that September is urology awareness month. Now I have to admit I am one of those people who have got a bit of "support this months" fatigue. There doesn't seem to be a month without some sort of charity awareness being supported. But … Continue reading Urology awareness and a very frustrating morning!!
Yesterday we had a visit, a very small very fluffy little baby bird. It took us a while to work out what it was and if it was ok. Thankfully it was hopping around and eating and drinking all afternoon, but it took us a while to decide what bird it was because to start … Continue reading Little visitor and looking after mum!!!
Schools back but for me it's now a long road back to normality after the holiday!! I haven't really been able to (or ever been any good at) pacing, so my body is definitely rebelling. I'm aching all over with the exhaustion and my brain fog is so bad I'm not actually sure how I'm … Continue reading Doctors second appointment
Sunday saw me heading down to Dunsfold aerodrome for Wings and Wheels. As if explained before I'd not so much been looking forward to it, rather worrying but thankfully nothing beforehand went wrong so mobility scooter dismantled and packed and emergency kit supplemented with 2 bottles of icy water and a cold water spray (and … Continue reading Wings and Wheels
As I've not had so much time to write and post recently my next few posts will be catch up ones from what I've done over the past couple of weeks. They might seem a bit out of date or written as if it was before we went out (because they were started before), yet … Continue reading Expectations
I never thought that at the age of 38 without a baby that I'd be packing a bag of essentials to carry around with me. Unfortunately with the "unspeakable problem" screaming so loudly at the moment I've had to create my emergency kit so that whenever I go out for more than a few hours … Continue reading My emergency kit bag!!
I have been cooking up a post which seems to be taking me forever to write!! I thought that while I was doing that though I'd still write a post as while we were out yesterday I came to a few realisations, well ok not so much realisations more recollections of these thoughts but whatever … Continue reading Realisations
Yesterday, wanting to make the most of the nice weather, we decided to go out again as a family. This time we had settled on somewhere we have been a number of times before, Pulborough Brooks which is an RSPB run place, this is usually a good bet because we know what I can and … Continue reading Wow a fairly successful family outing!!
One more of the many, many downsides of "the unspeakable problem" (incontinence, see other posts for some of the other problems) for me is the many clothes changes I'm going through at the moment!! If I was rich I have to admit that this would be a big up-side because it would be the perfect … Continue reading Mismatches!!!
