Kikki-K Haul

As a planner addict Kikki-K is heaven to me, so when I knew I'd be spending a few days in London having tests a few weeks ago (you can read all about that here) I knew I had to visit one of their stores. Luckily our hotel was under a ten minute walk to Covent Garden, yay!

PoTS: Autonomic Tests at National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery

Last week I travelled down to London to spend three days having tests at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. I'd been a few months prior to see a new consultant who suggested I go through the autonomic tests so she would have a better idea on how to treat me. I was diagnosed with PoTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) almost ten years ago, and had been seeing a consultant in Salford before I moved to Northants. However, my PoTS has been taking over my life lately and I knew I needed to be seen by someone nearby - hence NHNN.

Train Journey's Are Never Simple When You're In A Wheelchair: My Disaster Trip

You'd think travelling via train in a wheelchair would be simple, wouldn't you? What could go wrong? Passenger assistance is booked, the assistant meets you, gets a ramp, you wheel onto the train, and the same happens at the other end. Easy right? Hell-to-the-no. Nope. Nada. Nah.

Products to Check Out

Soap, shampoo, lip balm and an eye mask - you might think this a random post, and I guess it kind of is, but humour me and you might potentially discover a company you've never heard of who produce some fab products.

24 Things I Couldn't Live Without As a Spoonie

Luckily in this day and age we have a lot of resources and equipment at our fingertips. As someone with a disability, there's quite a few items I need in my everyday life to help it run more smoothly. Now, I don't have unlimited funds (if only) so I don't have every product that could potentially make my life easier, but I thought I'd share a few things I couldn't live without.
