It's Time to CoppaFeel with Y Salon

You may have spotted on my Instagram a few weeks ago I had the honor to attend the CoppaFeel event at Y Salon in Newcastle. I was really looking forward to this event, knowing how important this cause is. It was such an inspiring event, I feel like I've learned so much about Breast Cancer and the CoppaFeel charity. I've decided to share it on my blog, because I think it's something that everyone should be aware of. 1 in 2 people will be affected by cancer, so it's important we do what we can to find it and stop it as soon as possible.

About the Salon The event was held in the Y Salon, who work with the Kevin Murphy brand. Kevin Murphy are committed to natural ingredients and being kind to the environment. They have so many amazing products, which we all got to have a look at during the event, which are all cruelty free and full of natural ingredients. In this day and age, it's so important we start making these changes, so it was really great to get to know what Ke…

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!
