Welcome to the first guest post for Mine & Amy’s wonderful event Confessions of a Spoonie. If you want to know about the event then click here, other than that let’s jump straight in with Caroline Appleton’s Confessions!
So this month I myself will not be posting all that much due to commitments at work but also because our wonderful two events will be officially kicking off this Tuesday and all the guest posts will be taking over both mine and Amy’s Living With ME blogs! So though you wont see much from me, my blog will be very active!
If you haven’t seen already, Amy has kicked off the Outside Looking In event by publishing her Partner’s answers to the questions with regards to Amy’s conditions – so go check it out by clicking here! I am also following in her footsteps and am happy to present my wonderful Partner, Sam and his answers to the questions about my illness. I hope you enjoy!
So you’re probably wondering what this big surprise is and why I am so late (yet again) with this blog post, well all can now be revealed. Continue reading
Apologies for this post being SUPER late. I’m playing catch up today so keep your eyes peeled for all of the posts I’ve missed over the last week or so from my Schedule!
So as I’ve already mentioned, my diet is not going all to well. I’ve been ill with a cold & throat infection which has completely destroyed all of my motivation to be healthy. I’ve been eating rubbish, had a few drinks here and there when attempting to be social (which definitely was not one of my better ideas) and my gym life has been non-existent. All of which make me feel lethargic, bloated and tired which in turn adds to the cycle. Great.. NOT! So here are some photos of what’s been going on but unfortunately.. there are not a lot.
So this dieting thing has went from being on hold due to sickness to literally being none existent. But the hardest part I’m finding is trying to get back on track after such a long time off. I cannot imagine this is going to be easy.. Continue reading
A common question we get asked while in School, College, University or just in our lives generally is “What’s your 5 year plan?”. It’s always a hard question to answer and you find that many people either don’t really know but they’ll put down some obvious answers, or others who know exactly where they want to be in 5 years time as well as each step they need to take in order to get there. So after thinking about this for a good while now, I thought I would try to answer the questions.
I’ve had the most incredible short break away to Edinburgh with my Grandad! Whiskey tasting, walking through the old tunnels and just enjoying the beautiful architecture & views in general. And to top it all off, I also went down to Richmond and got to see two of my best friends who I haven’t seen it what seems like forever, lucky me right!
A fantastic post by Amy over at Living with ME. She gives us her top 5 tips on dealing with Anxiety and talks us through how they help her when her anxiety attacks start. Please go and take a read of her wonderful blog!
I’ve suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for as long as I’ve been diagnosed with ME/CFS, but before that it wasn’t really something that I had experienced.
The reason I’m writing this post now is because this has been playing on my mind a lot this week. For Uni, I have two presentations that I have to do in a few weeks; one, a 15 minute presentation to do on my own, and the other a 10 minute presentation in pairs.
I can already feel myself getting anxious about these, but not only that, also about the fact that it would not be impossible for me to have a panic attack before, during or after the presentation, which is causing me to feel more anxious and it just goes on.
