Watching The Last Leg with Adam Hills (you can watch the episode on iVew) last night I realized I hadn’t really investigated the word “Ablism” before. I had heard of it, but I hadn’t really thought it would be applicable to me. However, when I came across this from HERE, it blew my mind. Since…… Continue reading Ablism – What Is It?
For those who have known me for the past nineteen years, I was living in a constant, vicious circle of pain and then fatigue, then the fatigue would cause pain and so on.

I gotta admit, this year hasn’t played out how I invisioned it. Sure, I’m still recovering from major surgery in August last year, and I’m still healing (probably for another six months, but in my head I knew that would be a twelve months recovery period.) However, this isn’t slowing me down… It’s my chronic…… Continue reading Spontaneity And Pain
I LOVE to shop! Many women and men do! There’s nothing better than browsing with a friend and/or window shopping. In January I met a friend at Chaddy (aka Chadstone which “claims to be the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere”) when we saw a movie. Afterwards strolling through Chaddy I drooled looking at the dresses…… Continue reading They Joys Of Shopping
