This all started after I recently (2013) had a bit of a health ‘blip’. By blip I mean riding in an ambulance with massive breathing difficulties, chest pain and a virus that caused medical type people to notice that I had high blood pressure, general tachycardia, raised blood glucose and an immune system that had been beaten to a pulp by a mixture of stress and me ignoring my physical and emotional well being over being good at my job.
So, I realized that I’d rather not die at 33 and have started making small but significant changes to my life which are bringing me closer to being healthier and as a by-product, a bit of a hippy.
This is my experiment to see if I can continue as a nerd and a mother whilst becoming a bit more of a hippy. If that brings more peace to my life then all the better, although I think my husband may have something to say about the free love bit!
Since (and before) then, I have been diagnosed with a number of things until a GP joined the dots in 2015 and identified Ehlers Danlos which takes all the little individual pieces and makes up on gigantic genetic puzzle. Much of my blogging now revolves around my ranting about various dislocations, trying to get up & down stairs on my bum, and a love/hate relationship with the medical profession.
….. you might want to get a cup of tea.
