Last week I had a migraine. My migraines have always been the kind that warns me, and I can take action to reduce them, but I can never stop them. I've had them all my life. None of the medications worked for very long; we have tried every single one thoroughly. Currently, I am waiting … Continue reading Sometimes medicine has no answers

It’s Been Three Years…
Where have I been sincee 2020? A life update.
They Had Pre-Existing Conditions
Over the last week or so, since the first death of a UK citizen due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK, news anchors have announced each death with: "They were a man/ woman of -- years old however they were known to have pre-existing conditions." For the majority of the population, this is a … Continue reading They Had Pre-Existing Conditions
Testing… Testing… Hello? Is this on?
Hello! Um... Yeah. Long time no see? Type? Hi. I've been away. December sucked. I was in the hospital for almost all of it, and I got out on Christmas Eve. Since then I have been recovering physically and mentally as well as throwing what energy I can into my little eBay shop! However, I … Continue reading Testing… Testing… Hello? Is this on?
Blogmas 2018 – Day 1
I've been seeing lots of folks on YouTube doing "vlogmas" so I thought I would try my version. So here it is Blogmas. So, on the 1st of December. Sleepy. I think that is an excellent way to describe it. The big cats had their vet check-ups, so we were up and out by 0930. … Continue reading Blogmas 2018 – Day 1
MY EXPERIENCE OF NHS POSTERIOR LUMBAR DECOMPRESSION AND INTERBODY FUSION – POST OP DAY 1
After the last post, I was somewhat mentally exhausted - so sorry that this wasn't up yesterday as planned. But, here it is. The next little instalment of the saga of my spinal fusion.

It was around eight o'clock in the evening so … Continue reading MY EXPERIENCE OF NHS POSTERIOR LUMBAR DECOMPRESSION AND INTERBODY FUSION – POST OP DAY 1
NHS Surgery Pre-Op Assessment – My Experience
Yesterday I had my pre-op assessment for spinal decompression and stabilisation surgery. I kept a little diary of the whole experience as I thought it might prove useful to someone else about to embark on the same journey. 6:15 AM - I'm awake! I'm not half asleep perched on the side of a bathtub, evaluating the … Continue reading NHS Surgery Pre-Op Assessment – My Experience
Oh Dear… I am Sorry 🖤
I have just realised my last post was in July. I have no real reason - I just haven’t. A little update. My jaw is much better - talking and eating isn’t anywhere near as difficult or painful as it was pre-op. I’m still going to physio to amp up my strength for my spinal … Continue reading Oh Dear… I am Sorry 🖤
My (2.5) Week on Instagram
The last 2 and half weeks have been a little crazy. Follow me on Instagram <- clicky. Photo 1: Ah - these. Yeah. This is the paper pants they make you wear during surgery. I had surgery on my jaw... so I have no idea why I required paper underwear. 🤔 Photo 2: A very tired, … Continue reading My (2.5) Week on Instagram
TMJD Surgery – Day 5
There isn't really much to report at this point. I'm very, very sleepy. I slept a lot yesterday. Which is why there is a lack of anything exciting. I spent all day either watching Food Wars (Shokugeki no Soma) or sleeping. Such a rock n roll lifestyle. James the wonderful has been amazing - he … Continue reading TMJD Surgery – Day 5
