Mental Health Awareness week – how I handle the depression that comes with Lyme disease and Fibromyalgia

What an amazingly inspiring and informative week this #MentalHealthAwareness week is! I thought I would share how I handle the crushing depression, general anxiety and crippling brain fog that I get (or used to get) with my Lyme Disease and Fibromyalgia. Watch this video for a much more detailed description of what it feels like and how I handle it, […]

Review No2 Far Infrared Cocoon From Get Fitt

  So in April I reviewed the Far Infrared Professional Sol Cocoon and Earth Mat (chair mat) from Get Fitt.  I had amazing results, and thought I should update you how things are going since then.  Plus I’ve had over 50 people try the Cocoon and Chair mat, so I”ll let you know what I’ve found out from those trials. Things I […]

Far Infrared Mat from Get Fitt Review

I’m better! Not fixed.  But dramatically and unbelievably better! It’s like someone switched the lights back on in my body! And now I look back I can see that I was degenerating badly.  It’s actually quite scary now I feel better, to see how I was on an inexorable spiral downhill.  It was obvious if you had a little look […]

If I was better what would I change?

So let’s say the combo of naturopath, CBD oil and Far Infrared mats (my newest investigation) didn’t just help me manage my Lyme/Fibro but actually returned me to full health. What would I change?  What would I go back to doing?  What lessons have I learnt? I think that it’s an important question to answer.  I’m NOT saying I want […]

When Fibromyalgia is actually Lyme Disease

I’m sorry, it has all been a little bit about sickness recently hasn’t it?  Bit boring really, so I’m going to make this post succinct, and then move onto more interesting subjects for a while 😉 Some background: since June last year, I got really sick.  I’m better, but I can’t work full time, find it difficult standing up and […]

CBD oil for Pain Relief & Sleep Problems

I apologise, I’ve been promising this post for months, and really it’s pretty easy to write, I just didn’t get round to it. If you have a weird funky illness that gives you pain and sleep problems, the I really recommend CBD oil made from Cannabis oil. There is no ‘hit’.  Just pain relief and a good 6hrs sleep, sometimes […]

Why my body suddenly crashes

This is how my body works ….. “Right then, we have a target, all hands on deck we have a target” “We estimate that this project will take <xyz> amount of energy over <abc> number of days: initiate gradual send out of energy per day” “Oh shit, we estimated wrong” “Initiate borrow of energy from ‘Bank of Energy’ to reach […]

The face of silent illnesses

This is the face of illness ……   It doesn’t look particularly ill does it? Honestly I don’t mind.  If I looked like I felt, it would be pretty catastrophic, and at least I don’t have that to worry about.  I don’t need lots of sympathy all the time either.  Although, I suppose it might be a helpful reminder to […]

Why Pampering Is The Best Present You Can Give

Pampering – it’s one of the best presents you can give YOURSELF or your loved ones! It might sound a bit ridiculous for the owner of a Hair & Beauty Salon and Spa to say this: But I hadn’t understand HOW important it is until recently. Now Danny Smith at Radio Verulam is a big fan of a pamper, so […]

18 Months On From My Diagnosis With Fibromyalgia

  I’m so sorry, it’s been sooooo long since I wrote about my Fibromyalgia.  I feel especially guilty having been selected as one of the Top 16 Fibromyalgia Blogs worldwide.  I totally meant to blog as I went, but it just didn’t happen. But I have GREAT NEWS, so maybe it’s been more important that I focussed on myself for […]
