Finally a light at the end of the tunnel!

I finally got my endo specialist appointment!!

On 5th of October I finally got my endo specialist appointment after waiting for so so long!

I cannot put into words how anxious and nervous I was and I was so grateful that I could take my mum in with me!

He treated me with nothing but respect, he didn’t rush me or talk down to me and answered all of mine and my mums questions.

Most importantly he did two things:

1. Came up with a treatment plan.

Pain meds are just anti spasming tablets and paracetamol which I’m unsure will work but I’m happy to give it a try.

2. He told me that I can have children!

No other medical professional has answered this question that has been hanging over my head for some while now. I may need my ovaries drilling beforehand but I was so relieved that I was told it was a possibility and all my options weren’t being taken away that I burst into tears. He also said at 27 with no children the other medical professionals should NOT have been pushing me to get a hysterectomy and putting me through an early menopause wouldn’t have helped either.

I’m so glad I persevered and waited to see the specialist.

No I have been taking all my recommended medication for 3 days now and I need to get in touch with the dietician also to find out how to do the FODMAP diet.

I am waiting and hoping this will all work and most importantly that my operation won’t take as long as a year!

Struggling on my week off: sinus infection & endometriosis.

Today like the past couple of days I have been trying to rest, as catching a sinus infection is a sign that my body is run down.

I am also due on and I am hoping if I rest that my PCOS won’t cause me to skip another period which makes things worse.

I am trying to remain positive but to be completely honest I am struggling.

I am struggling for energy, to remain positive, upbeat, calm and collected, I am having acne breakouts, my endo pain is not decreasing no matter what I do, and my mental health is not the best.

I feel increasingly alone in this and I am tired of waiting for treatment and tired of my endometriosis affecting my life and what I want to do with it.

I just want a day without pain, without the fatigue and without the struggle.

No one realises what a toll endo has on your mental health and for me who already has mental health conditions such as cptsd, if is especially difficult.

I will keep fighting through, I will try and remain positive, optimistic , patient and take it day by day.

Narcissistic abuse: I’ve learnt my lesson.

It has been nearly 3 years since my last relationship and I feel more confident about my body and my qualities as a person than I ever did in that relationship.

I cannot believe I stayed so long in a relationship with somebody who I did everything for, to make them happy but who made me feel like I was never good enough. I completely lost myself in that relationship.

It was a very hard lesson that I’ve had to learn but its a lesson the universe had planned for me and it will never happen again.

I have now grown from this experience and I’ve got to now have faith that the universe has good things coming my way.

A good morning surprise on a very dismal morning.

Today here in North Wales it has suddenly got so much colder, it has been raining on and off all day and it looks miserable.

This morning I went up to my garden to see one of my sunflowers to cheer myself up and I found…

A cute bee sleeping on one of my sunflowers! 🌻🐝😍
Look how cute and peaceful he looks!

It definitely put a smile on my face! 😍😍

Body confidence; I’ve come a long way.

I have come such a long way. ❣

Through years of self-hate, negative talk,  trauma, counciling, beating myself up,  surrounding myself with narcissists and being in a one sided relationship with a narcissist who made me feel ugly and unwanted,  I am finally on the road to recovery and on the road to self-love, body confidence and being comfortable in my own skin.  I love every curve, lump, scar and bump.

I am growing more and more each day, I follow body positive accounts and people who are inspirational to me, I’ve broken down the societal pressures of beauty, I’ve stopped focusing on weight and unrealistic beauty standards and I am finally happy in my own skin WITH all my flaws!!

My body is not only beautiful but incredibly strong for all that it is going through, I’m still here, still standing. My scars, my cellulite, my rolls, my dimples, my body is a work of art showing my incredible journey.

Nuclear power plant in North Wales being scrapped!

My reaction when I saw this headline: Good!!

Nuclear energy has no place in a safe, clean, sustainable future. Nuclear energy is both expensive and dangerous, and just because nuclear pollution is invisible doesn’t mean it’s clean. … New nuclear plants are more expensive and take longer to build than renewable energy sources like wind or solar.

If you want to read more information as to why nuclear energy isn’t the answer to our energy problems, visit these websites. ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
