hello, you. I’m sorry I haven’t been around much; it’s been an extremely busy few weeks and I’ve been exhausted! I’ve been having at least two hospital appointments each week, and sometimes they can take hours and hours, or be very painful /uncomfortable. I’ve been having pain management weekly, orthotics, occupational therapy, MRI scans, medication reviews and still have orthopaedic appointments and immunology to come. Phew! I’m very grateful of course, but juggling all this with studies / everyday life stuff, pain, and a blip with my mental health just makes me want to nap almost constantly! A few things have happened, though. I’ve made progress with my MRes dissertation (I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel finally!) and I’m now the owner of two baby guinea pigs (check my instagram…I’m obsessed with them!). They have been helping my wellbeing. They provide a validation for my existence on crappy days, and I know that they need me to be there for them. I’m so lucky to have them.
ill update this soon; there’s a few posts in the pipeline. Thanks so much for bearing with me; it means a lot. .
lots of love,
