October is my favourite month! It's my birthday, it's mine & my fiance's anniversary and the weather is the least painful for my TN! Here's what I've been enjoying this month..
Recently, I was put in touch with a girl and a kitten, who had suffered a brain trauma too. The vet asked if I could give her some advice on moving forward with a blind pet, specifically one who had suffered a similar head injury. I realise this a very specific type of disabled pet, but there aren't many places on the internet to get advice about raising a blind or disabled kitten.
I would have been happy to lie in bed forever.
My favourite dates are actually the ones that are cheap or free! We've had some lovely expensive dates too, but right now, whilst we're saving, I think I enjoy a date more knowing that it is well within budget!
I've been learning ways to let go, to take my mind off things, to be able to move forward and deal with any problems in a healthier way.
I have never been ashamed to admit that I've needed counselling before. To be honest, I'd think it was pretty strange if someone was diagnosed with incurable chronic pain and didn't feel depressed, or scared, or something along those lines.
I was just scrolling through Facebook this morning, when I came across a post advertising jobs for air staff for a particular airline and all the comments were about how it was so sexist and ridiculous that in this day and age, ladies are told they need to wear make up in certain jobs and it got me thinking about my own experiences with this.
