How I got Started:

I had been diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary artery hypertension in 2012, which subsequently led to a tweak in my lifestyle and I needed a new focus. I have always been an avid reader and decided a blog would give me the opportunity to share what I read and get on the soapbox about other things that are on my mind. My first post went live on 30th December 2012, at which time I had no idea what direction my blog was going to take.


Write about things that light your fire, post regularly and treat bloggers/readers in a way you would like to be treated. Let your blog evolve to reflect you.

  1. Thank you for the nomination and for thinking of me. It’s great that you made a positive out of a negative with your health issues.

    I was diagnosed with sjogrens syndrome 2 years ago and it has made me address many aspects of my life, diet and exercise to name a couple. It has brought new focus to my life. I don’t abuse my body anymore with processed food and toiletries loaded with nasties.

    It was a wake up call xx

      1. Chronic health problems can really affect self esteem especially around the pre-diagnosis/diagnosis time period.(In my experience anyway)

        It’s good though that you feel positive about who you are today 🙂 Do you miss the medical field?

      2. I have good periods and bad periods and try hard not to feel down when things aren’t good. I hate to feel like I’m having a moan, so try to find the positive when things aren’t great, even if that’s just hospital chocolate pudding and chocolate sauce. I miss the structure of my days, but not the stress. I am appreciating the opportunity I have to choose something else and I don’t know where this new journey will lead me. My life was so mapped out until I became unwell, it was scary to leave the medical field but I definitely would never go back.

    1. Thank you, yes cats and books do go well together, but in my experience only whilst the cat is asleep, otherwise I’m subject to widespread destruction if I’m not paying them attention.
