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 | 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!
