From Nothing To Something

As it’s M.E awareness week right now, I wanted to touch base on the subject that the charity is focusing on at the moment, and that’s isolation. With most chronic and debilitating illnesses, isolation and loneliness often follows it and it’s something that isn’t discussed very much at all. People are usually more interested in the symptoms and how you are physically feeling rather than the slow impact the isolation and being shut off from the world can actually have on you, so I wanted to tell my story on it. A year ago, as you know, I finally revealed…

The Key To Happiness

An interview with me on the key to happiness and being present Since coming out about my illness (M.E) and working with the M.E organisation, doing a couple of interviews and trying to answer all of your questions on it, I thought I would pile together some of the important and life changing questions from you and answer them in this post.

To a lot of people, it can be extremely daunting and scary for them to experience someone with M.E going through this, as they can feel completely helpless, so I wanted to explain a bit more about it and share everything I can on the subject so that it can be helpful to anyone out there suffering with M.E or anyone looking after someone who is going through it. Not everyone gets…

A Fashion Blogger With M.E – Anxiety & Depression

I wanted to start my ‘fashion blogger with M.E‘ individual posts with anxiety and depression. This is something that has played a huge part in my life for many, many years now so it’s something I’d like to share in great detail with you all and I hope it can help some of you out there in similar situations. When I first started to get sick around the age of 13/14, it was really difficult for me to take on. Being so young at the time, I didn’t really understand how to take care of myself and how to balance…
