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 | 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!
