TIPS FOR DAILY LIFE
Getting the most out of your day when living with pain.
MY FIRST BLOG!
About me and why I started this blog site
How it feels to be me!
Something you can relate to!
Best advice I can give!
Things I’ve learnt along my way
WELCOME! My name is Chantal and I have started this blog to bring together a community of us who face the daily battle, against our own bodies and against the world due to our invisible illnesses! I’m here to share my knowledge, help others with support and help find answers wherever needed, and just to give you someone to relate to so you know you’re not alone!
The illnesses I suffer with range from diagnosed to others still being investigated, so I hope my journey helps you relate, no matter where you are in your journey or what your faced with. I live with POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) , MIGRAINES & DAILY HEAD ACHES, ENDOMETRIOSIS, ADENOMYOSIS, POLYCYSTIC OVARIES, CARPAL TUNNEL, HYPERMOBILITY SYNDROME, COSTOCHONDRITIS, ASTHMA, TYPE 2 WENKEBACH HEART BLOCK, COELIAC DISEASE, 2 PROLAPSED DISCS (L4 & L5S1) and one of the newest symptoms I’m yet to have diagnosed that started a few months ago is now SILENT SEIZURES with PRESSURE BUILD UP around the brain, …. like I needed another to add to my list!!
I was a Real Estate Sales agent prior to all these horrible symptoms starting and did my best to manage renovating a house, working full time, spending time with my husband Bruce and my friends and dealing with my health issues…. As most would of you know that was just too much and my body starting caving and taking up most of my time as it couldn’t cope with. We have recently moved states with my husbands work so for now I have taken time off working to focus on my health and getting “ME” back on track to become the best version I can be! I would love to help others do the same on their journeys and bring us all together, so none of us are alone! I have great support from my dear husband Bruce, my friends and family and now you too! And now you can add me to your list too!
The poem says it all 👍
So very true! Sorry to hear about your experiences. I was told by my Councilor today who worked at the…
Hello Chantal. I’ve received the same treatment from GPs and specialists (pain specialists, surgeons, neurologists) alike….quite a few times myself.…
Another good blog, very encouraging to people who have any chronic illnesses especially ones that are physically invisible.
