Health update

Well, I’m pretty much flaring everyday.

The doctors have upped my 12 hour MST to 40mg instead of 20mg and has it helped? No. Because of this dose change I now take Senna once a week. This week it’s taken me three weeks to go to the loo.

Have I heard about my injections? Nope. I’m ringing once a week now. I’m getting numb legs and arms at night and my sciatica is going off like fireworks.

I’m also getting really bad migraines so I’ve got an eye test Saturday and I keep feeling sick and wanting to sleep.

But, I am grateful for my family especially, my mum who’s most patient. She’s my angel. She’ll be exhausted from work but doesn’t mind running out to the shop to grab what I’m craving just so I eat.

Still waiting for a new wheelchair and then no more excuses I will be going out.

Updated? Good. I’m going to nap.

’When a mothers love is not enough’ Youtube Tuesday’ Please watch!

BBC Documentary by Rosa Mockton she has a daughter who has Down’s syndrome, Dominica. This documentary follows families and what it’s like looking after a disabled child. One story made me cry with frustration. A single mum Asha told her story of how she fought for her teenage son’s nappy allowance to be increased from 3 a day to four. 4 NAPPIES A DAY. JESUS CHRIST! THAT’S BLOODY DISGUSTING! GOING TO THE TOILET IS A BASIC HUMAN RIGHT. YOU CAN’T LIMIT THAT. Meanwhile, her youngest son is being worn down and is subjected to bullying because he cares for his younger brother. THIS ISN’T RIGHT. WHY AREN’T FAMILIES GETTING THE HELP THEY NEED? SOMETHING IS SERIOUSLY FUCKING WRONG. IT MAKES ME SO ANGRY.

Video synopsis was written by Rosa Monckton: ‘Whilst making my first documentary for BBC OneWhen a Mother’s Love is Not Enough’, I exposed the battles that families face to get the basic care for their children. I saw just how isolated they are, how little help they get, and how exhausted they become in fighting to get what should be given to their children as an absolute right. I have received emails from families and carers across the country, desperate for help, and highlighting the lack of frontline services. There is a lack of common sense, an absence of compassion and a labyrinthine bureaucracy which is almost impossible to navigate. Initiatives spew out of Whitehall, but none of the money, or the services, seems to reach the families who are most in need. There is much to be done.’ PLEASE WATCH.

Sunday Book Review: What the F**** is Normal? By Francessca Martinez

Rating: 5/5

Genre: comedy, autobiography


‘What do you do when you’re labelled abnormal in a world obsessed with normality? In a world where wrinkles are practically illegal, going bald is cause for mental breakdown, and women over size ten are encouraged to shoot themselves, what the **** do you do if you’re, gasp… disabled? Francesca was diagnosed with cerebral palsy when she was two years old and her parents were gravely told that she would never lead a ‘normal’ life. After a happy childhood filled with tree climbing, mischief and little regard for her bit of palsy, Francesca arrived at high school with a confidence verging on indestructible, only to be turned into a miserable and insecure wreck. Luckily for her, salvation came from Grange Hill, a stand-up comedy workshop, and a passionate love affair replete with scintillating conversation. After one particularly mind-blowing chat, Francesca realised she had the power to stop judging herself by society’s unhealthy standards and create her own. So she did. This powerful new perspective changed her entire life forever.’

My review: she thinks like I do!! I love love love it!! It’s empowered me. I can identify with her. She says what we’re all thinking! Please read it took me half a day! Love it! Thank you Fran for showing me I’m not the only one who thinks these things! She’s awesome at comedy too!
