Hi, I’m Vicki. I live in Manchester, U.K with my fiancé, Paul, our pug Gus, our 2 cats Dobby and Luna and Paul’s kids, Jessica and Erin, who stay every other weekend. I don’t currently work due to various illnesses that cause pain and fatigue amongst many other symptoms. I also suffer with depression, anxiety disorder and OCD. Physically, my mobility is most affected and me and Paul often joke about how I walk like a penguin! I do need crutches or my wheelchair to get about and since needing to do so, I’ve seen the world from another perspective. I try not to take myself too seriously and I always try to see the positives in life, no matter how tough some days might be.
I decided to start this blog mostly to keep myself occupied but also to reach out to others who may be in a similar situation or feeling isolated due to their illnesses. I have lots of advice, tips and tricks and stories to share. I’m sure you will see many different topics discussed but they will all relate to chronic pain or mental health in some way.
I hope you enjoy my posts 🤘
