I thought I would give an update as I have been a bit quiet the last few weeks.
Firstly, my health has been quite a lot worse.
The chronic pain is a little worse but the chronic fatigue is a LOT worse and I have been vomiting most days for at least a week which made those days very bad days that I lost to bad health.
I did start new bladder medication, although I don’t think that added that much fatigue, although it did add a bit.
I have been napping more which isn’t great when I need 11 hours sleep a night too! I feel like I sometimes sleep the days away.
I have less and less time that I can do things so my health is deteriorating.
I usually post on Twitter a bit, but I haven’t been as much on there either sadly.
So not sure why it is worse, or if this is just my new “normal”. I think it might be the latter.
Secondly, with the rise in the cost of living, I have also been trying my best to survive which is much harder now!
I got an extra £2ish a month PIP which is good although still leaves me just over £300 a month which still isn’t enough to live on…
My 55p a day used to do 2 small meals, now really does just 1 meal as the cost of food gas gone up as much as 200% on some items!
I only buy budget brands as I can’t afford others, so things that were 25p are as much as £1 now! Huge increases on almost all the things I buy, plus lots of items are now permanently out of stock for as long as 6 months at a time! I guess stock issues might be due to the nightmare that is Brexit.
The lack of food also obviously affects my health and energy massively as well which makes it all much worse!
So with me struggling to afford to live and my health getting worse, I have been a little quiet the last few weeks.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I put lots of hours into the blog & don’t earn from it.
