No one said that having a catheter was easy, and I've been under no illusion that this was the case. However my bendy body doesn't seem to think that having a catheter is bad enough on it's own, and so this past week and a bit I have had to call the nurses out four … Continue reading Catheter woes and what is a supra-pubic catheter??!!
May in my EDS world is awareness month. As I've explained to you before I have got a bit of awareness month fatigue, there are so many of them and so many different days. However for me awareness month is how I found out about EDS and how I finally got some of my answers. … Continue reading EDS Awareness Month……….and what you need to know about my condition!
I've started the following post about half a dozen times. It's been easy to write in the sense that the words have come easily but, as you will see, actually writing the post has been hard. I've lost over 3 copies and had interruptions and problems, with family being here, finding time to myself. So … Continue reading Sensory Overload!
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
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.

However yesterday after looking back my trip to the garden centre was actually quite amusing, although it may not be so much … Continue reading Plant delivery on a mobility scooter!!!

So it struck me again this afternoon what a mass of contradictions I really am!! I was sat doing a jigsaw puzzle (another one of the things that eds has curtailed, but more about that later!!) watching first the end of Le Mans 24 hour race and following that one of the top gear specials!!! … Continue reading A mass of contradictions!!!
As always happens with my blog posts I started thinking about one post and ended up writing something totally different!! Anyone who knows me knows that I have a rather strange relationship with my dad. He is a real grumpy old man and moans constantly about me and my things (equipment for my disability and … Continue reading Fathers day.
I couldn't decide the topic for my post today, yesterday I'd gone through the internal battle I have when I buy anything so thought I'd share that but when I came to start to write an overwhelming force took hold and so today I'm going to write about that instead. I shall save my purchases … Continue reading Feeling hot!!!
