#MillionsMissing

#MillionsMissing

Today my news feed on all my social media platforms has been over run with #MillionsMissing. It is all about showing support to those suffering with ME/CFS and showing what sufferers are missing.  The aim is to post a pair of shoes with the #MillionsMissing and write a note about what you are missing. The picture of my Daughters shoes look brand new, unfortunately they are not :(, and I have seen hundreds of other pictures exactly the same, just different shoes. #MillionsMissing represents the millions of ME/CFS missing from their…

An update on The Bear

An update on The Bear

As you will know we recently got a puppy, it has been quite a while since we had a puppy in the house, and he has certainly kept us busy. Bear turned 13 weeks old yesterday, he now resembles a German Shepherd a lot more now that both his ears are sticking up and not all floppy. He is certainly a character, and there is never a dull moment, and poor Max sleeps very well at night to the extent if we walk through the kitchen he can not even…

My Week – 22/05/16

It is that time again for my weekly post, and an update on what has been happening in the StressedMum household. We had problems with our car this week, luckily I was not driving and my Husband was with me, we had a nice pretty picture of a car in red, which I had never seen before, come up on our dashboard.  Luckily he knew what it was and after a quick google said it was easy to fix, so he ordered the part and it did not take him…

A Little Trip Out

A Little Trip Out

Today, I have done something that I have wanted to do for so long, I took my Daughter out on a little trip out. Yes that is right you read it correctly, we went out and had a girls trip out. As you will be aware, she has CFS/ME, this means that she is wiped out and has trouble walking, so this has been something we have both missed doing. This week, has not been a good week for her, she has been bed bound for most of it, and…

Oh The Panic

Oh The Panic

I am a driver, I passed my test when I was 17, and always had a car of my own. I love having the knowledge that I can just pick up my keys and go out if I need to, the freedom it gives me.  Especially where we live as we get one bus every half an hour or hour, depending on time and days, and that is if it has not been cancelled. Also, with my Daughter with her illness not having a car would be a nightmare to…

My JD Williams Summer Wish List

My JD Williams Summer Wish List

With summer coming, well hopefully we still have more summer weather to come, I have been looking at updating my wardrobe, and have been looking at JD Williams site for inspiration. With having a Daughter with a chronic illness and having to use a wheelchair when out, I needed items that are stylish, easy to wear and also practical. In the winter I live in jeggings and baggy jumpers and cardigans, but in the summer I do prefer long summer dresses, as they are just so easy to wear and…

My Week – 15/05/16

I can not believe another week has passed, it seems to have flown by this week. My Daughter has had a really bad week this week, and did not make school, we had her consultants appointment on Tuesday, and more blood tests.  We managed to get her into the hospital for her appointment and then used a wheelchair, have you ever tried to steer one of those, they do not go in a straight line, so that gave us a few laughs.  The appointment went well, and he is supporting…

Buff & Butter Review

Buff & Butter Review

I was recently in a very lucky position to be offered the chance to review Buff & Butter essential oils products.  I have always had an interest in essential oils and loved reading about how they can help with moods and medical conditions. As you know my Daughter has been diagnosed with CFS/ME, which is a chronic illness that effects the suffer in many different ways.  I spoke to Buff & Butter about their oils and how they may help my Daughter, and they sent me through 4 oils.  Organic…

A Letter to my beautiful Daughter

A Letter to my beautiful Daughter

Dear Daughter Today is ME Awareness Day and I am writing this letter to you, to let you know how amazing both Dad and I think you are. You have had a very rough year with being ill, you have had days and weeks, of not being able to get up out of bed, you have had times you have been so shattered you have not wanted to move, days where you could not walk (or your bambi days as well call them). You have missed a lot of school…
