I try and live an active and healthy life as best as I can. I am an avid supporter of alternative medicine, fresh air, raw foods and lots of water. I always go for more than one opinion, and use common sense to put everything together before I just accept my fate at the hand of mere doctors.

This year, however, was a particularly bad year health wise, so I had a bit more to write about than I hoped for... accidents do happen! Although it is not ideal, I have to say that I learned so much more about our incredibly amazing bodies, and it keeps on fascinating me, the more I learn. Hope you enjoy this journey of discovery with me.

Remind me...

We all go through trials and tribulations, joy and exaltations, and all of these impostors are easily forgotten. 

I find it incredible (in a good and a bad way) how easy one can forget the bad things that happened and how quickly we fall back into our comfort zone, forgetting the lessons we learnt and paid for so dearly. 

Even though we obviously enjoy  the good times better, it is often during the difficult times that we really mould our character and grow as a person. 

Every Day Life

I find everyday people very interesting. Even the old lady that you think is very boring, has a story to tell, and people often surprise you in that way. Just pay attention and show some interest, you'll be pleasantly surprised. To read more about our everyday experiences, click here.

Fibromyalgia - Myth or Menace

I woke up one morning and literally just could not get out of bed. I was in so much pain that I couldn't move at all and tears streamed down my face without me even crying. It was then that I realised that my chronic inflammation might not be inflammation at all. 

It didn't happen overnight though. A year ago I had serious reconstructive surgery on my hand after a mountain bike accident and it took six months' physio until I was able to use my hand again, so pain was just an everyday occurrence which didn't really bother me, since I have a very high pain threshold.   

Moving on...

Ever wished that you could get rid of an annoying ex in a nice manner, but they just won't let go? I am no Bieber fan, she's just not my cup of tea, but I really had a good laugh when I heard this song, and with a few tweaks (mostly correcting his bad grammar - eye roll), I'm sure anyone will enjoy this too!

For all the times that you rained on my parade
And all the places you got in using my name
You think you broke my heart, oh boy for goodness sake
You think I'm crying on my own, well I ain't

To love, or not to love. That is the Question...

"The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever." - The Notebook
If you would like to explore the highs and lows of love, relationships and solitude with me, please feel free to comment and discuss this topic with me. I am by no means an expert, but I truly believe in love. I just don't know how to define love, since I believe too many people confuse it with other things, like attachment or need. It is wonderful to be loved and be free at the same time.
