"But you don't look ill?" That is a remark I get from loads of people when I explain I live with Epilepsy. The truth is the majority of the days you cannot even tell I have it - you can't tell anyone has it unless they have a seizure and that is what makes this… Continue reading Epilepsy – The hidden monster.
My darling this is one letter I didn't want to write, one topic that shouldn't even exist. You see, the world as we know it is changing, there's more violence now than there used to be when I was growing up and it doesn't look like it's going to be slowing down any time soon.… Continue reading Open letter to a little girl in a big scary world.
People ask why I'm so afraid of dogs on a regular basis, so I thought I'd put the record straight, I'm not afraid of dogs as such I just get flashbacks of past experiences.

School days are supposed to be THE best days of our lives. Yet for some it's some of the worst. I myself was bullied through… Continue reading Itv This morning Be kind campaign.

Today I had to go to my local hospital to get a 72 hour heart monitor fitted. Last year I was diagnosed with a condition called Supraventricular tachycardia (svt). My heart very rarely drops below 100bpm so we always knew something was up but the doctors just didn't want to know. It was only when… Continue reading Day 1 of the heart monitor!
