So I started using a wheelchair…

Hey y’all, It’s me again. If you follow me on instagram you may have already noticed that a while back I got myself a wheelchair. I had been trying to get one through benefits, but it turns out that’s not gonna happen without a diagnosis. So I decided not to wait for that and spend…

Pre-op frustrations

Health update: lots to share

Hi y’all, A few things happened in the past few weeks I had promised to write about, but it all had been so exhausting, not just physically and cognitively, but also emotionally, I had to put it off for a while. Simply put it has been an emotional rollercoaster. It’s hard to decide where to…

Recipe: fish tajine (with vegan option)

Blog: top surgery consult

Hi y’all, A few days ago I mentioned I’d be having my top surgery consult soon. Since I don’t see much info about physical transition in Europe besides the UK I thought I’d share my experience.

Blog: health problems

Hi y’all! I keep promising I’ll be back more often, but my health keeps getting in the way. Sorry 😦 Most of the decline has been going slow and subtle, but the last few days I’ve been in a lot of pain. Like, a lot. I don’t know what’s going on in my bowels, but…

Hi y’all, It’s me again. Today is something a little different. I want to share something about one of the things that has been keeping me busy; growing my own food. I’ve been doing some container gardening both inside and out on my balconies. I can say that it is definitely still very much a…

Avoiding the supermarket challenge; day 13

Hi y’all, Today is the second to last day of my challenge. Today is also another bad fatigue day. Not quite as bad as yesterday, but that’s about it. Today I’ve felt very stuck. Stuck in my situation, stuck in my flat, stuck in my body and even stuck in my own head. I wanted…
