Gastric Bypass Complications

Can I start with, if you are at all concerned about sickness, fullness after liquids, not being able to eat; do NOT ask in the online forums if it’s normal. Contact a GP and request an endoscopy to rule out blockages. You see I, having chatted online about my surgery was assured it was normal.Continue reading “Gastric Bypass Complications”

Anxiety arghhhh

I needed an Osteopath and my friend kindly recommended one for me, I tend not to see people who are not by recommendation; I’d never just chose someone at random my anxiety won’t allow it. I decided to email the business, the only problem was, they actually replied and offered a choice of appointment dates,Continue reading “Anxiety arghhhh”

Air Raid Warnings in 2022

I used to think Air Raid shelters were a thing only in history books. The reality is today that in the Ukraine they are lit up red. Red on the map to alert them to air raid attacks. It’s not just one area, a border or piece of land, it’s the whole country under attack.Continue reading “Air Raid Warnings in 2022”

Restless slumber

As he breathes next to me I hear him moving, frantic like escaping from an unseen foe, ‘Two weeks ago..’ he murmurs, soft snores escaping and the rustling of bedding sounding sharp in the silence, The murmurs and sad wails continue, do I awaken this restless slumber, do I comfort this man, What are dreamsContinue reading “Restless slumber”

Three steps forward, two back

Just when you think a corner maybe turning, you’re thrown right back. We have a system in place at home. Like a traffic light system but with processes. So if you feel low, you don’t use your phone, you don’t sleep alone, you never are alone in a room, you eat with everyone else andContinue reading “Three steps forward, two back”

Recent nightmare

I’m observing a ball at the queens quarters and realise I’m not in 2022 anymore I’m looking at the strange red coats and yellow sashes and wondering which era I am in, trying to memorise the guard coats and fancy dresses. I’m so taken by the yellow sashes and I notice the guard is actuallyContinue reading “Recent nightmare”

Teen mental health

Today I want to write about the current teenage mental health crisis in the UK, how unsupportive the system is and how dangerous the system is for our young people. This is from my own personal experience. My teen suffers with an anxiety disorder, is also apparently showing signs of autism, had had long standingContinue reading “Teen mental health”

I AM WALKING ON EGG SHELLS! AUTISM?

My daughters always has social problems be it with school or large gatherings. I just thought she had a school phobia, the doctors didn’t think anything of it as she grew up, just normal child behaviour. Sometimes we had tantrums in shops, like most parents experience. I always cried outside her door at night wishingContinue reading “I AM WALKING ON EGG SHELLS! AUTISM?”

Weird dreams #school

Disclaimer, this was just a dream! I’m sat in my mothers bedroom, on the Paisley bedding watching as she throws everything out of her fitted wardrobe. “There, look through that”, she says, her hair is in an eighties style, curled fringe and ends, wearing a black and red flowery dress she sighs and sits nextContinue reading “Weird dreams #school”

Yesterday was X-ray day

Tomorrow is cancer specialist day. I’ve got to say though the staff at my GP surgery and everyone I’ve seen so far at the hospital has been amazing. Even got to keep my t’shirt on for the chest X-ray, phew! My husband drove me and came in, he asked about coming in with me tomorrowContinue reading “Yesterday was X-ray day”
