The Window To My Soul ~ An Update.

The Window To My Soul ~ An Update.

June 15, 2014

It’s been six weeks since my last major eye haemorrhage. My vision has slowly been deteriorating, even as my eyes begin to adjust more to limited vision. I have constant bruises on my body from where I bump into things, and misjudge doorways and bench tops. Being visually impaired whilst living with a three year […]

The Window To My Soul.

May 1, 2014

My windows are broken, and the shards are tugging and tearing at my soul. Yesterday I had another haemorrhage in my eye, the worst I’ve had in a long time. (You can read more about my battle with Diabetic Retinopathy here) The blood has clouded my vision so badly, I can barely see. As usual, the […]

*Trigger warning: This post may raise issues for readers who have experience with depression and/or suicide.* I’m lying in bed writing this on my phone. I don’t know if I’ll publish it. I’ve always hated bloggers who appear to jump on a bandwagon. Turn a tragedy into blog fodder.   The thing is, I can’t […]

Six Years.

October 11, 2013

~10th of October 2007~ I walked into a room one day, thinking I carried one, I learnt I was a mummy to two, yet walked away with none. Identical in every way, including the angel wings they’d grown. Before I had a chance to know them, to heaven they had flown. They blessed me with […]

*Trigger warning: This post may raise issues for readers who have experience with self-harm, depression or suicide.* This is the most difficult post I have written on my blog. It is a side of myself that I keep very private. What I am writing about will come as a surprise to most people I know, […]

Diabetes Denial.

August 2, 2013

It was Melbourne Cup Day, 1989. I sat on the bed in the Drs surgery, swinging my legs, waiting, whilst the Dr rang the local hospital to let them know I would be coming in. I was nine years old, and our GP had just given me a finger prick test and diagnosed me with […]

Kmart Endless Days Of Play Giveaway

July 21, 2013

Last week I was invited to an event to celebrate the introduction of a new toy range from Kmart. The night before, I thought I’d have a look at Kmart’s new Facebook page. People were not happy. It seemed that Kmart had made the decision to no longer offer the mid year toy sales and six […]

By now most people will have seen the horrific photos and footage from the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich, London, yesterday. The graphic details and images of this crime deeply sickened and disturbed me, as I’m sure they did, many others. That was the point of this crime. It was a hate crime. […]

What to write?

When I started this blog, it was all about the “journey”. Where I had been and what I had to do to get to where I am now. To get my ‘Happily Ever After’. Married to my soul mate, mother to my beautiful daughter. All the crap that I lived through, all the pain and hurt, […]

Reflections Five Years On.

October 10, 2012

Five years and one day ago, I sat in a small room on my own, whilst a sonographer told me that not only was I carrying identical twins, but they had both died. Five years ago today I walked into a hospital, with two tiny baby inside me, and woke up from a general anaesthetic empty. With […]
