How to Travel Alone When You Have Seizures

The illustration used for this post is by Debbie Powell for Uppercase Magazine Travelling long distances on your own is always going to be stressful – hauling along a ridiculously heavy suitcase that has one of those pingy wheels that carries the ever-present threat of causing your  suitcase to veer off in a wholly unprecedented…

A Jaw Update & Call to Arms (Or Thumbs)

I’ve been meaning to write this post for about a week, but I hadn’t gotten round to it until now! I’ll start off by saying that the Sewing Weekender was just so amazingly rad – I’m currently rendering the video (as I’m writing, so it’ll probably be on YouTube by the time it’s posted) if…

A Very Overwhelming Evening

If you’ve read any of my posts before, you’ll probably know that I am a wee bit disabled, as I have numerous medical conditions, one of which is called EDS. I won’t go into loads of detail about what EDS is, but I’ll put a link to an explanation of it here if you’d like some…
