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 | Pain Management - Initial Assessment


This is just a quick update post following on from my breakthrough post here.

So a few weeks ago, I had my first Pain Management Unit appointment. It was just the initial appointment, but I was still so nervous about it! I always feel a bit nervy when it comes to fibro related appointments, I never know what to expect and I still get quite emotional when I discuss it.

Really I had nothing to worry about! The Doctor running it was so lovely, he was so friendly and also so knowledgeable about fibromyalgia, so I've been able to learn a lot more about it too which was fab for me.

Another great thing about this initial assessment was how positive the doctor was. It's very easy to fall into a state of negativity, and I was definitely on that path, but I've been given a whole new sense of positivity towards how I can manage my pain.

So good news, the doctor has said that he thinks the pain management course would be really good for me, so he's put me forward for it! I'll be going for 3 hours a week for 6 weeks. The positive vibes I got from the doctor has got me feeling really good about this, I'm hoping I learn a lot from it. I actually have no idea what to expect, I don't really know what happens on the pain management course but I'm excited (and a little nervous) to find out.

I plan on posting about my experience throughout this course, so once I get started I'll have weekly posts all about it!

If you've been on a pain management course, what did you think? Do you have any advice for anyone going for the first time? I'd love to hear your stories and advice!
