To , I have to ask, your email is a joke, right? I contacted the concerns team and health board to discuss how poorly I was treated by one of your doctors.

I live with … Continue reading The Letter I Wish I Could Send The Hospital Health Board
Today I went to a local high-street to collect an order I had placed. Once I came out of the shop I stopped to put my bags on the back of my chair. Whilst I was doing this a man probably in his fifties walked up to me and asked ‘why are you in a wheelchair’. I am 100% aware that I don’t owe anyone … Continue reading My Disability is None of Your Damn Business
Where it All Began The World in my Words began on the 2nd of September 2017. I had something to say and I didn’t have the patience to wait. I created a new look for The World in my Words in an hour which had existed for a few years unused and I published my first piece. Since then The World in my Words has … Continue reading The World in my Words – A New Look
As someone with a disability, previous crutches user, walking stick user and now a wheelchair user I can tell you that the offers of help I get or have had when out and about are a little like marmite.

Back in May I had my much awaited first Gastro Appointment in Cardiff with my new Consultant. Before I go into … Continue reading What does Oesophageal Dysmotility Consist of For Me & Do I have a Plan?
UGGHH TO HYPERMOBILITY! Last week I had a lot of odd feelings and pains in my arm/shoulder. It felt really heavy, tingly, loose etc I’m pretty sure it has been slipping and been close to subluxing or has been subluxing. When I woke up on Sunday morning I felt as though I couldn’t breathe as my pain was so intense. I assume I subluxed my … Continue reading It Only Takes One Person (+ Subluxing My Shoulder)

Due to the support I have received I will assume that my regular viewers are all aware that I am currently fundraising for a Power Assist Add On for my wheelchair. The Alber E-Fix 35 (You can find out more about this piece of equipment here). I thought I should take some time to explain why raising the money for this amazing piece of equipment … Continue reading My Goal for Independence.
Since my health deteriorated at the start of 2017 I have struggled with the cooking. In fact until last month other than some soup I hadn’t cooked a proper meal for myself or James since… well at least 6 months ago. It’s been so long I can’t remember! I enjoy cooking I always have, I enjoyed food technology at school but even 5 years ago … Continue reading Spoonie Slow Cooking – Honey Garlic Chicken
