Safari Supper for Sunderland Restaurant Week [ad]

I was invited to the #EatDrinkSunderland Safari Supper to get a taste of what is on offer for Sunderland Restaurant Week in return for me to share my experience on my blog and social media. All views in this post are my own.
It's already half way through March and I've just been so terrible at keeping my blog up to date! I decided to extend my hiatus after getting caught up in a car accident last month (thankfully aside from some whiplash I'm fine!) as I needed to make sure I didn't stress myself out any further. I feel like I'm back on track now though and I'm really excited to be posting again as I've got loads on this year! This post will actually be quite a long one, and my photos have actually ended up being terrible so please bear with me! Hopefully you get the gist of it, but I'm a bit rusty and I was a bag of nerves most of the night!

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!
