Hot, Hot and Hot

The weather has been glorious for the last week or so, we live about a mile away from the beach and try to get down as often as we can with our dog Jess. She loves going for a paddle. Unfortunately this year I’m having difficulty getting down to the sand due to there being steps and this is the only access. Hopefully, I will soon be feeling the sand between my toes again IMG_0341

For the last 10 days, I have been following a no wheat, no sugar and no dairy diet it has been very hard and I have cheated a few times but I’ve lost almost 7lbs and my resting heart rate as really gone down. The postural tachycardia is still there but not as high a rate as it was. So at least some good has come of depriving myself.

I have been feeling really lethargic and have got listings to do on eBay as well as knitting to finish off for my Etsy shop but to be honest it has just been too hot

We started watching Riviera the other night, I like it and we have watched 6 episodes so it must be keeping my attention.  I find when I have a relapse that noise really irritates me and that my attention span is non-existent.  I’m in the middle of a really good book here but can’t bring myself to read more than 1 or 2 pages

If you like a good book then I can recommend Rachel Abbot, all her books are so good, I’m currently reading The Sixth Window

Tomorrow we are going to see my Mother which means an 80 mile round trip which we do every other Tuesday , we will be doing it twice this week though as it’s her birthday on Saturday, as my husband is working we will go over there on Sunday and make a birthday tea for her



First blog post

My name is Karen I’m the Mum of mummytodex and I’m hoping I can make my blog as successful as she has made hers.
I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in 2000 and after 6 years of being housebound and wheelchair bound I made almost a full recovery. For the last 12 months I have felt my health slipping, scarily back to how I was back in 2000. I am getting no help from Doctors all they tell me is they have no magic pills for me. My main symptoms apart from the Fatigue is my Low Blood Pressure and Tachycardia. I am in danger of losing my job at the moment.
This is no new thing for me for 27 years I was a qualified nurse RGN, RMN Ob.N.C. when my illness started, I was put on sick leave and after 1 year off sick my contract was terminated. The NHS wouldn’t retire me on ill health so my pension is not worth having unfortunately. Anyway back to the present time I now work for a large supermarket and I was off for 3 and a half months from January went back to work for 6 weeks and unfortunately off sick again now .
I’m trying to use this blog to supplement my income. I Knit, I Crochet and I do Cross Stitch. I have an Etsy Shop called HafHeulwen I also sell things on Ebay my user name is Thekabin
I also do online surveys and quizzes and have found that there is quite a lot of money to be made here as long as you are willing to spend a little time doing them
