Sorry this post is a day late. I didn’t finish University yesterday until 6.30pm to which I then came home and realised I had no food in, resulting in a food shop, cooking and then eventually just passing out from exhaustion. However, this week I plan on getting ahead with my scheduling so hopefully you’ll see more regular posts at regular hours next week.

A very moving post by Lucy. She talks about her diagnosis and how she dealt with it, along with how she wishes she had dealt with it.

Since starting my blog and getting a bit more involved on my Instagram I have had the opportunity to connect with so many different people.
