3 ways I have succeeded despite Crohns…


I am doing my masters. This is something I didn't think would be possible through the mid-point of my second year at Undergraduate.

Mixed Feelings today


Hey all, I just thought I had better post, because its been a while since I have and I don't want to get back out of the habit! Today is a weird one (so strap in ready for a rollercoaster!).. its a mix of being satisfied, happy, miserable, lonesome, proud, determined, dis-heartened and loved. Not…

2,688 hours ago today I was under the knife


Firstly - Happy Easter to you all! Secondly - I am in shock. My operation was 4 months ago today...4 months...I don't even know how to explain it (times like this I admire people who blog and write and always find exactly the words they need to describe their thoughts...I feel as though my thoughts never…

So another term draws to a close…
