It is the end of the year, and so comes the obligatory 'How was the last year for you' post.
I've only been blogging for just over a month, and I said I wanted an honest blog.
This time last year I was on about 40 tablets, and through determination, and luck through getting a GP who wanted to help, I got my dream: I now only take medication to go to bed with and am down to the bear minimum that I can get away with: pain I can live with!!
Without those medications clouding my brain, I see things sharper, I notice colours more, and my emotions are my own! It has taken more getting used to than I'd thought it would, and some days are harder than others not to just pop one of the pills, but the effect on my personality was startling! I couldn't believe that I'd been taking these for the past 6 years thinking that I needed them to get through the day, when in reality what I needed was to strip them down and rebuild my 'cocktail'.
Now colours stand out, so I wear more colours. Now I'm more aware of how I come across, so wear more colours! Now when I need a pick me up, I wear more colours. Which is where the blogging community helps. Especially Georgina's post about plus size fashion and how colour is so important.
Here is hoping 2012 gets even better,
Much love my lovelies,
