When 3 become 4 💙♥️💙💙

February 4, 2019
It's a boy pregnancy reveal.

I finally feel brave enough to discuss my pregnancy now we are over half way and had our 20-week scan 💙! I feel I have been in hiding with it for the past few months, but this time round I have been so sick. Morning sickness wasn’t just in the morning and through the months of November and December was relentless and 24/7 of feeling sick and actually being sick to the point I was prescribed anti sickness tablets to…

What I See

January 25, 2019
This is a pic of how i can best describe my vision.

I have been asked a lot recently what my vision is like and how I manage to still do my make up so well and read small print. I was diagnosed with Stargardts at the age of 32, so I have the later onset variant with something called foveal sparing (for now) which means that the very centre of my eye is quite clear at the moment. The picture I have posted of my little boy and Loco is the…

Christmas Memories

December 18, 2018

I have to be honest and say, I adore Christmas time, December is my favourite month of the year. Last Christmas I felt like I wasted the month by being very disorganised and dwelling on things too much and making myself stressed by trying too much to please others. This year I have already wrapped most of the gifts I have bought people and have decided that it will just be the 3 of us eating at home on Christmas…

Memories vs To Do List

October 30, 2018

Last week was half term and my husband had booked some time off of work. We have a jobs list for the house as long as I care to admit, so we debated whether this time and money should be spent on that. It’s not that anything major needs doing, it could just do with re painting in most of the rooms and some of our furniture could do with being replaced. The thing is, the house doesn’t excite me…

Stargardts Picnic – Hyde Park

August 19, 2018

Just after my diagnosis last year, I heard about a Stargardts picnic that was happening in Hyde park, where lots of people with this disease got together to meet others going through the same thing. This time last year I was not ready to meet anyone else with Stargardts, and the opportunity passed me by. The picnic was organised again this year and by now I was desperate to meet others with the same as me as sometimes this disease…

Two Blind Brothers Ambassador

May 14, 2018

After being diagnosed, I wasn’t given any information from my local hospital about my disease and was basically left to google everything. I wasn’t even told how much vision I would lose. After googling Stargardts, I came across the two blind brothers. I was so inspired about what I had read about them, that I went to find their Facebook page. After going through most of their posts, I felt so grateful that there were people out there trying to…

Raising Money for Moorfields

March 4, 2018

Just after my official diagnosis in September 2017 I felt absolutely helpless and I will admit, I lost all purpose in life for a bit. I didn’t know who I was, what I wanted to do or even what I could do now with this massive weight of vision loss on my shoulders. I saw the Moorfields eye to eye walk one morning on Facebook and said to my little boy, maybe we should raise some money that could go…
