Welcome to a safe space to explore the effects of living with chronic pain and other disabilities. I hope my writing helps someone to feel they are not alone. To help someone understand how living with disabilities and pain can affect a person and every crevice of their life.

Living with Fibromyalgia and Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder has always been a wave that I’ve had to surf carefully…. ‘Breaking The Stigma; An insight into a Mental Health Crisis’ illuminates my experiences.

Quotes About Life Writing
‘…And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.’Sylvia Plath
‘Writing isn’t about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it’s about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well.’Stephen King
‘You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.’Anne Lamott
