Those of you who have been following me for a long time, will remember every October I take part in a month of posts. This is where myself and a group of other Bloggers post a different subject each day. So welcome to-day one and Blogtober 2019 – All About Me A Year On.
All About Me
For those who are new to following me, I am Sam aka StressedMum and I live with my long-suffering husband of 17 years and our Daughter who is nearly 16. I also have two stepson’s who have both made us grandparents, and am loving the role of Nanny. On top of this I have two dogs to complete our mad house.
I started StressedMum when my Daughter was just about to leave Primary School. Thinking I would have a lot more spare time on my hands without school runs etc. How little did we know that she was ill when she started Secondary School and crashed into a chronic illness on new years eve. That moment our lives changed, and 4 years on we are still no further forward. You can read more about our journey here.
When I started my blog it was going to be all about the ups and downs of living with a tween. Which we did have for a few months. Then it changed as we began our battle, Don’t get me wrong, she can still be a stroppy teenager and grunt rather than use words.
A Year On
Since last year, I have been blogging the same, although I had a total crash on my website a few months ago. This has led to a lot of my old posts being lost (I am still trying to see if I can find them hidden somewhere). There has been a lot of tears and tantrums, and hopefully will now be ok.
I have had a year of suffering, the menopause is not kind, and am currently under the hospital with mine. I am going to write a dedicated post to this. Once I have got everything under control, as know it may help some of you if not now in the future.
My Daughter has been our main priority this year, the medical profession has let her down and we even ended up seeing our MP. She turns 16 next month, can not believe my baby is growing up.
So that is an introduction to me, who I am, my family and personal life and blog. Why not say hello in the comments and introduce yourself to me.
Look out for Day 2 of Blogtober 2019 tomorrow.
