Hi Everyone

After a few problems with some people I feel the need to express myself in regards to my facebook statuses. I know I shouldn't have to but I feel like its something I have to do for me. 

I have written about my health problems before and have recieved alot of understanding and support. However I have recently been accussed of trying to get people to feel sorry for me. This is not the case. My health problems are severe enough to affect my daily life. If I write on my facebook that I am in pain or have had a bang to the head etc it is for me not for sympathy. I do it partly for people to understand my conditions plus to reassure other suffers that they aren't alone with their suffering. I have never expected sympathy nor do I want it. I write my statuses  just like everyone else does to express how I am feeling. I am still coming to terms with just how much my health problems are effecting not just mine but the whole familys daily life. I am now classed as disabled and need adaptions making on our house to enable me to beable to do things easier. This includes things I have always took for granted like being able to get to my bed or the toilet.

Unfortunately I have discovered some people have taken the opportunity to cause trouble for me and my family. I don't know if they think that because I am now disabled I will sit there and take it but  it seems they think they can do and say what they like about me & my family. I am still the same person maybe a little quieter but I won't let anyone hurt my family. 

At the moment I do feel that I can not write how I feel on my facebook in case people really do think that I am after sympathy and are fed up with it. 

If anyone does feel this way I would prefer they told me or just delete me. Stress makes my seizures worse so I don't need any drama in my life (well apart from having teenagers lol ) 

Well on a happier note I have rediscovered my love for cross stitch and this is relaxing whilst creating some lovely pictures. I'm hoping beable to get my current cross stitch project done soon so I can then start a more challenging project. I will also be doing a few smaller projects along side it so I don't get bored :-)

Its snowing again and whilst most children will be happy mine aren't lol. They seen the weather report and said "not again" lol alot different from when they are at school where it is "great". They are enjoying the school hols and even behaving lol 

As always I would love to hear your feedback on this blog xx
