Blog Number Two (July 2016)

I've decided to be brave and attempt to write my second blog. Although I didn't say much on my first one I still enjoyed writing it. It was great to put my mind to something constructive, and the fact that doing it doesn't effect my health issues is even better! There isn't much I can do anymore that doesn't cause pain/tiredness so it makes a nice change to do something & still feel good afterwards compared to some my blogs will sound boring and uninteresting but at the moment I'm still learning how to become a good blogger, but I'm sure I'll improve over time if I stick at it. For now though, I'm keeping my posts short because I don't want to be rambling on about nothing in particular lol. Hopefully next weeks blog will seem better than this one..

Compared to some, my first few blogs are going to sound boring & uninteresting, but at the moment I'm still learning how to become a good blogger but I'm sure I'll improve over time if I stick at it. For now though, I'm trying to keep my posts short because I don't want to be rambling on about nothing in particular lol. Hopefully, the more blogs I do, the better I'll get.. X

I'm just gonna start by being really honest with you all. This year has been rough for me. Really rough. My Marfan related health problems have taken their toll on me and I feel physically exhausted. I feel emotionally exhausted too, but I don't like openly admitting that. I don't know why, I guess it makes me feel ashamed as I sound weak. I don't want sympathy, I just want to express myself. If you've followed me for a while, then you'll know that I already have various medical ailments mostly as a result of Marfan syndrome. I live with chronic pain, PoTs, a complete bowel prolapse, and numerous other problematic issues. I was just about managing to cope with all that but then Marfan syndrome started affecting my gastrointestinal system, and I've lost too much weight. I've been slim for a few years now, but not this slim. I'm just about sitting at 6st at the moment, which is far too thin for my height. I've been referred to the dieteics team and

The Daily Realities..

Over the last few years, I've been very open on Blogger about my life with Marfan syndrome and numerous health conditions, but I haven't been quite as forthcoming with those around me because if I'm to be honest, I struggle to fully express the significant impact that chronic illness/health conditions have on my day to day life. I don't look like someone with chronic illnesses. I don't use a wheelchair, a stick or any disability aids, so I'm afraid of telling some people in case they think I'm over dramatising it. But that is far from the truth. I've lived with chronic pain for a long time now, gradually building up and becoming more widespread over the years. I've learnt to become good at pushing my unpleasant physical sensations aside to get on with my every day life though, so no one would ever guess it. No one would know (unless you are my Mother) that on a typical day I experience several different types of pain and discomfort throughout my body

The Critique of my Marfan Physique.

Written in response to the unwelcome yet frequently made remarks on her strikingly slender physique, Lucy’s piece will resonate with many Marfan folk whose slim stature is also the recipient of such unwarranted attention.   Hey guys, here's a blog written by me, published by Marfan Trust.
