‘Pass Me the ummm… Thingymajig’. Word Finding and MS

'Your sandwich is on the sofa'.  Just this morning, I managed to confuse my son with thinking that I had put part of his packed lunch in the most random of places, when all I meant to say was 'table'.  I have noticed this happening more and more frequently, which can be quite alarming, especially… Continue reading ‘Pass Me the ummm… Thingymajig’.

New Beginnings

I've had a weird week.  I realised that I am going to be (medically) retired by 40 years old, if my application runs smoothly.  It is a complete mind melt - retired by 40?  It's my own doing, so of course I shouldn't be shocked.  It was me who, earlier this week, told my Manager… Continue reading New Beginnings

Meditation Challenge – The Result!

Back on the 3rd January, at the start of the year, I set myself a meditation challenge - to see if meditating every day would help me to feel more calm and in control.  I set myself this challenge as I have meditated on and off in the past, but let it slip a bit...… Continue reading Meditation Challenge – The Result!

Hair Cut Happiness: Why the ‘Little Things’ are so Important

I’ve had my first day back at work after my long Christmas holidays and, I can tell you, it was hard work.  Not that I had a great number of patients to see (because I’d allowed myself time to catch up on admin to get myself prepared for the weeks ahead), but the need to… Continue reading Hair Cut Happiness: Why the ‘Little Things’ are so Important

Accept, Adapt, Succeed

How do you get over what life has dealt you, if it’s something that's so bad that sometimes you can’t even bare it? Do you even get over it? I don’t think you do get over it, I think that you learn to adapt to it. MS has challenged the way that I feel about… Continue reading Accept, Adapt, Succeed

Throwback Thursday; Thinking of the Old Days

Hi everyone!  Hoping that you are all as well as can be and are enjoying these longer days (and the chance to curl up with a hot chocolate!) like I am.  Blogging has been a bit slow due to my relatively recent (August) return to work.  My body is most definitely telling me that I… Continue reading Throwback Thursday; Thinking of the Old Days

I Am Enough

'You're really good at taking care of us, Mum’.  A simple sentence, but when my little boy said it to me after he fell and cut his leg, I felt absolutely amazing. The number of times I’ve felt like a crap Mum, because I can’t run around with my children any more or because I’ve… Continue reading I Am Enough
