A New Year Update

Hello everyone!
I feel like I've been so quiet lately! My blog has not been on my mind much through the Christmas break, which has been perfect really. As much as I love and appreciate writing this blog, I've had the busiest Christmas break ever! It's been nice to be focusing on what I've been doing instead of worrying about getting the right photo to share on Instagram. 
So because of this, I thought I'd do a quick post to update you all on the last couple of months and what I have coming up!

December was my last month working at what was my first proper job after university. The whole month felt so strange, but the timing worked out well as it meant my final working day was everyone's last day for Christmas and I had a nice break before starting my new job! I will seriously miss all my work pals but I know I'll still see them all outside of work

I had a lovely time celebrating Christmas with my nearest and dearest. I did unfortunately end up having a bit…

The Fibro Diaries | Breakthrough

When it comes to Fibromyalgia, I very rarely have any updates because it's one of those conditions where nobody really knows what's going on! It's a very frustrating condition to have as it seems like you're very limited on help.

Luckily though, I do have some updates! Last year I applied for funding for the Pain Management Unit in Newcastle, but unfortunately it was declined. To say I was gutted was an understatement, I was heartbroken as I felt like this would have been the perfect thing for me, as my biggest struggle with Fibromyalgia is mentally handling the pain and fatigue, and dealing with stress.

I decided to go back to my GP to see what else could be done, and he informed me that there was in fact a Pain Management Unit in my area, and so I have been referred to this instead! Because it's in my area, there's no applying for funding, just waiting for an appointment, so no disappointing calls telling me I've been declined, thankfully! I'm not sure I could have taken another one.

I'm quite excited but nervous for this, I have no idea what to expect or if it will even help, but all I can do is try. It feels great to know that I'm moving forward too, as for a while I was stuck in a rut (hence why this blog came about!) so it's exciting to think how this may improve my life with Fibromyalgia.

I look forward to keeping you all up to date with my journey through the Pain Management Unit and how it helps (or doesn't!) with my Fibromyalgia. 

Fingers crossed!
