about me


Welcome to my little corner of the internet! You can find me in York, living my best life (or trying to!) with my fiancé, a cat cactus and two invisible illnesses.

I’m trying to share the reality of living with invisible illnesses as a 20-something graduate, sharing the ups, the downs and everything in-between! I don’t want to be ‘Instagram worthy’ or show a highlight reel, because that isn’t realistic. What is realistic, is me coming home from work at 5, napping until 7, having some tea and being in bed by 8. And that’s on a good day. On the flip side, I want to show the world that you can enjoy other things and not let your illness dictate your life.

I’ve come a long way and I want to share that with you. I’ve gone from being almost housebound, if not bedbound, for days on end, to being able to work 5 days a week. I’ve learnt a lot; how to say “no”, how to time manage with a chronic illness, how not to exercise with chronic fatigue and chronic pain and most importantly, how to just be me.

While my blog is primarily about living with ME (the chronic illness) and now PCOS, it is also just about living with me. A 20-something, rosy-cheeked, Friends-fanatic from the middle of nowhere in Northumberland who just loves to sing, write and cuddle her dogs and cats.

I hope you feel lighter and less alone when you ready my blog, somewhere you can come to with a cup of tea and and just relax. I hope you stick around and come and say hi!
