Read About My Decision To Delete My Facebook Blog Page... x

This time I want to talk about my Facebook Blog Page & why I've decided to delete it. I made the page a few weeks before Christmas & have been using it to share my blog posts on. It wasn't something I always intended to do though but the idea came after people where asking me if they could read my blogs, which meant I was having to share the links around in seperate places, which I didn't mind. But I thought it might make things simpler if people could read everything all in one place. And also, I guess I just thought it was normal to create a Facebook page for my blogs as it's something that most bloggers do. I made the decision to set up a page based on those 2 things but I didn't take into consideration how I would feel about hundreds of people reading my personal business on Facebook. I started questioning weather I was comfortable with that but I tried to stick with it in the hope that I might get used to the idea, but something in my mind can't adapt to it & my thoughts keep leading me back to thinking that broadcasting my blogs this way isn't for me. 

So, I've decided that after this post I will delete the page. I'm still going to blog, I love blogging! And I'll be more than happy to share the links with anyone who wants to have a read. I'll also share the blogs on a few of the groups that I'm on, I'll probably post them on my own Facebook page too. So I'll still make sure people get a chance to read them but by doing it that way it means I have better control over who see's my stuff. 

Before I go I just want to say a huge Thankyou to everyone who did take an interest & like the page. I'm sure you'll still see my blogs cropping up somewhere. I don't mind if they get shared around. I just wasn't keen on the idea of having a whole page on Facebook that contained so much about my life. Thanks again. X X 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.
