Recover, Adapt, Overcome

conference and ball

I have a heck of a lot of respect and love for the Purple Wings Charity. I genuinely don’t believe I would be in the position I am now if it wasn’t for a message about the ball I saw in a group. The conference is where I was able to make contacts who became friends such as Jasmine and Nozar, let alone Lauren and meeting a ton of friendly and amazing ostomates which you can read about the conference and the ball in those links.

It Will Be Alright On The Night!

first episode of the IBD and ostomy support show

Our first show went live last night which you can watch *here* I personally found it better to watch via my phone than streaming it to the TV. Which you can see here! We decided to give our own feedback on our first show so you can get a glimpse of some behind the scene action!

I’m that obsessed that I have three tattoos to them although one ended up stuffing up but hey ho!

Not everyone realises it meant I had a cesarean on my wedding anniversary I felt very selfish and put out but wouldn’t change her for a minute Read more

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Or for the purpose of this post phone phone propped up against my xbox one! I have mentioned a few times before I have never really liked what I saw when I looked in the mirror. Having eating disorders and mild body dysmorphic disorder to this day are a struggle to deal with but I still keep moving forward.

Blogness Cards

blogness cards

With the upcoming Purple Wings Charity Event I decided it might come in handy having some networking cards at hand so when I meet some awesome people it doesn’t matter if we’re having first world problems like bad signal, no WiFi, low battery, no pen and paper! 00Steve being the smart arse that he is called them “blogness” cards instead of business cards and I thought hey! I like that.  Read more

Sorry for The Absence

sorry for the absence

I’ve been really run down and not able to get enough quality sleep, which when you work nights isn’t good at all! It especially doesn’t help with the chronic fatigue either!
