Compulsion

Before I became ill and to an extent lost my independence I never really worried too much about what was going on around me or about other people.  Oh yes, I sponsored a child in another country and had a direct debit going to Oxfam, belonged to CND and Amnesty International, the usual, but nothing extensive.

Turning first vegetarian and then vegan first began the turn in tide for me when my eyes were opened to the state the world was in and how it was down to each one of us…

Innovation

Innovation, being the first

the bright idea, a light bulb burst

Putting ideas into action

And GlamSticks has received recognition

National awards and media attention

Positive reviews, too many to mention

Starting off a nationwide trend

Of others…

Buzzing With Ideas Through The Tears

When I am feeling at my lowest, times I refer to as 'the pit' (see earlier blog post) and the pain almost becomes too much to bear, these are the times I am at my most creative and I have a flurry of ideas and outpourings.  Activity from me tends to be very much in bursts lol

This is M.E.

This is M.E.

Exhaustion, pain and IBS

Can't cope with too many people around

Memory gone, thoughts disjointed

Unreliable, friends disappointed

Depression takes hold makes me…
