Introducing you to Kami Lingren from Living Grace who is a truly beautiful soul. Kami has been diagnosed with Lyme and a handful of other diagnoses, with dizziness, head pain, bone and joint pain as the most debilitating symptoms. At its worst, her list of symptoms from her illness had grown to nearly 80, which she know so many others can relate to.

Kayla Kurin: Living well with chronic illness

I’ve been meaning to write about Kayla for some time. We connected a few months back but it’s taken me some time to sit down and do her justice! Kayla has lived with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)/ME since she was 12 years old. Continue reading Kayla Kurin: Living well with chronic illness

Are you living on adrenaline?

Are you running around on adrenaline, much like ‘roadrunner’ just running non stop?

Following my own rather large run in with adrenaline and the diagnosis of having dysautonomia and being hyperadrenergic (a-dren-err-gic – I still have problems saying it) I’ve become somewhat interested in the role it plays on the body and thought I would share some of what I know.  So here goes….

My “Goldilocks” recovery plan for living with dysautonomia

Living with dysautonomia has been a massive rollercoaster.

The downs have been many but I wouldn’t have made it through the last two years without the ups.

The ups are simply those gorgeous people around me who have helped keep me sane and to feel cared for.  Numero uno, my husband (who does just about everything there is to do around here), then there are my children (for forever giving me something to laugh about and for just loving their mum), my family (for being there during the tough times and helping me in whatever way I needed it) and, finally, my friends (the rock stars who have stuck by me and not put me in the ‘too hard’ basket).

This last year has also been about developing what I’ve now called my Goldilocks recovery plan.  So named because quite simply it’s been about finding out what’s ‘just right’ for me.  There has been much trial and error!
