My Laparoscopy: One Year On

This time last year I was anxiously sitting on a hospital bed waiting for my laparoscopy, although I didn’t realise just how long I’d be waiting. I arrived at 7:30am ready to be admitted, put on my hospital gown, compression socks and hospital underwear and waited in my bed on the ward. Throughout the morning […]

2018: My Year in Review

To say that 2018 was a challenging year for me would be one hell of an understatement. At many times it felt like the worst of my 24 years, that being said, I also experienced some of the best parts of my life. So here it is, the good, the bad and everything in between. […]
