Just Keep Swimming

IMG_6810-0.JPG

  I love swimming.   I am inherently a water baby.  My parents first took me swimming aged 3 months and I took to it like the proverbial duck.  In my younger years I was an avid swimmer and was part of a synchronised swimming club where we trained pretty hard.  Our warm up was […]

Alcohol and me

IMG_6767-0.JPG

  My relationship with alcohol is long standing. As a young Panda I could drink quite a lot.  I did drink quite a lot on occasions.  In my first week of university I decided not to drink until I’d graduated as a) I was in London, it’s not cheap but mostly b) I commuted to […]

Pride

  They say Pride comes before a fall… PapaCubb suffers from severe pride, it runs in the family.  His Father died of Prostate Cancer because he was so proud he left it until he could no longer walk to see a doctor about it.  This kind of Pride is the worst.  With PapaCubb Pride means […]

Spoonie Friends

IMG_6730-0.JPG

    I am finding more and more that the importance of having fellow spoonie friends is immeasurable.  I’ve met some great people through the FibroAwareness UK support group I attend and have today met face to face for the first time a fellow Fibro warrior I met on facebook who happens to live in […]

Party Hard

IMG_6721-0.JPG

    So yesterday was my bday BBQ (my actual bday isn’t until Fri), and I’d spent most of sat getting things ready for it (see this) then got up early for more prep pre guest arrival.  This meant that by the time people started arriving I was already pretty tired.  My amazing LilbroCubb helped […]

Hospital days

IMG_6704-0.JPG

   Today has been a day of hospitals.  This morning I woke up earlier than I had to after a crappy night of insomnia, dragged myself downstairs, are the breakfast that Mama Cubb prepared for me and attempted to not fall asleep again.  Of course that failed and I fell asleep.  Mama kept trying to […]

The trilogy of solitudes

IMG_6700-0.JPG

   I’ve decided there are three primary types of solitude: Social solitude Mental solitude Physical solitude Social Solitude -interactions- Social solitude is basically a lack of socialising. This could be for many reasons and can wax and wane.  For instance you may have lots of friends who are simply just very busy, or a few […]

The Truth About Sugar & Chronic Illness

The Truth About Sugar & Chronic Illness

So I’ve been trying to reduce my sweet tooth too.  I’m still a Pepsi Max addict but I alternate with tea, coffee, water and soda with lime as well now, all unsweetened, not even with sweeteners as I get enough of that in Pepsi (I.e. too much).  I’ve also switched to dark chocolate and limit […]

On Boobies

On Boobies

I love boobs. I’m a woman with boobs. I’m a bisexual woman who likes other women’s boobs. I don’t like bras. Wearing clothes with Fibromyalgia is not fun anyway. I don’t like the feel of pretty much any fabric against my skin. When at home I wear satin nightwear, cotton pants and sleep in satin […]

On naps

Mao Mao is not feeling particularly energetic

  Due to trying to be productive (playing WoW mostly but it’s something) I’ve gone without my afternoon naps for a few days… …today I caved and I’m struggling to stay awake now, I so want to go to bed but have at least an hour to go until I can take my bed-time meds. […]
