So its been a while. I haven't had much motivation to write recently. Partly because I've been getting out of the house, and partly because my health has been seesaw-ing like a mother chuffer. I've had some lovely times out with my family - went to see my honorary little sister perform in her touring… Continue reading Optimistic
I'm having a rough go of it recently. Recovering from my operation has been tough. I'm finding it hard to balance being active and resting. Some days I feel really good so I'll go and do Some Stuff, but it will exhaust me so I have to stop and rest for a few days. Plus,… Continue reading I like me.
I'm doing ok, I think. The first few days immediately following my operation were hellish. Like, wouldn't wish on my worst enemy, hellish. The next couple weeks got easier. Pain meds were my saviours. Now I'm waiting for my braces and trying to get my life back to some semblance of normal. It's weird. Some… Continue reading 8 weeks later….
I'm doing much better now. The first week of recovery was pretty awful. Like, wouldn't wish on my worst enemy awful. Trying not to dwell to hard, and I'm feeling thankful that it's easing up now. 2 weeks and 4 days post op, swelling has gone down a lot and I'm eating without a syringe.… Continue reading Still here.
I've been given a date for my double jaw surgery. And it's soon. Like, a month away, soon. I don't want to give specifics until I get closer to the date, as I'm a little anxious that something might go wrong or it might get cancelled. But yeah, it's so weird that it's finally happening!… Continue reading Here we go…

After trying an actual metric fuck tonne of treatments for my jaw, I've decided to go for surgery to correct my bite, which should ease (hopefully get rid of) my pain. But because I'm a special snowflake and can't do things normally, it turns out I've got to have the surgery BEFORE having braces. Usually… Continue reading Next steps…
So, I like clothes. I like make up. I like sparkly accessories and jewellery. But as a spoonie, it's hard to find the energy to get dressed up for bed, let alone leaving the house. So I like to make sure I wear stuff that's comfy AND stylish all in one. I also have a… Continue reading Not dressed up, and nowhere to go
So. I've been taken on by Coventry Hospital's maxillofacial department who are going to perform my surgery and fit my braces. And man, are they awesome or what. Also, my dentist is a major rock star too. I've been seeing the consultant at Leicester Royal Infirmary for about 4 years, and have been seeing my… Continue reading Oh, Coventry.
