So…I’ve done it. I’ve taken the advice of a good friend and decided to blog my experiences with my chronic illness, mental health issues and share my random, sometimes shitty, sometimes bloody brilliant thoughts on it all.
The journey through my chronic illness and pain diagnoses is ongoing. Sometimes its like a massive struggle, like walking through quicksand. Other times I’m more accepting and can have a giggle and joke about it all. Sometimes thats the only thing that saves my sanity.
So a couple of quick notes.
I’m Kellie, I have sero negative arthropathy (rheumatoid arthritis), neuropathy (chronic pain), degenerating spinal discs and the start of osteoarthritis in my spine. I also have Generalized anxiety disorder, depression and bouts of agoraphobia.
I know what you’re thinking, I’m a lucky bugger aren’t I?! 😂 I won the lottery on health conditions!! What I can say is, I’m not the sum of my illness or diagnoses. Every day is a battle but also a gift.
I hope you’ll follow my blog. I hope you’ll put up with the days when I’m moaning about my sore knees or back. I hope you’ll giggle when I tell you the stupid thoughts that pop into my brain at times. I hope you’ll bear with me when I disappear at difficult times.
Mostly, I just hope you get a little insight into what a person living with chronic illness goes through.
Anywho, the meds are calling my name.
Later taters xx
