23.08.19 – Pain Team

I’ve recently had an appointment with the pain team to try and decide what alternative treatment could be offered. It wasn’t easy to hear them saying that I’d probably have this nerve pain for life.

30.05.19 – Holiday Packing

Holiday vibes! I’m currently on a flight with two other friends to Marbella for my sisters 30th. I’ve had mixed emotions on the lead up to it because of my anxiety and lack of good self esteem. I can’t help judging my body after all it’s gone through with the scars and very skinny frame. […]

18.12.18 – Cholangitis

I’m back in my second home, the hospital. I spend so much time in them either working, visiting or as a patient. This time I’m a patient again. It’s nothing to worry about, as I’ve only got an infection which is easily treated. I’ve been here since Sunday morning and having IV antibiotics for 5 […]
