I hope you're all doing well, I've just got home from a very busy day. I am thoroughly tired and in pjs already at 17:15 however I have been up and about since 09:00am.
Since writing my last blog when I felt at my lowest with no one for support other than my family and Ross I have been lucky enough to get chatting to some of ross’ friends I had lots of support from them during the meal last weekend and it has made me realise that I needed to be more open to new people.
I have been chatting to 2 of the loveliest girls Ashleigh and Kat since the beginning of the week and I mean like chatting non stop. They are utterly hilarious and so interesting but as well equally as interested in my life as I am there's.
Today I was lucky enough to met up with both of them, I had breakfast with the lovely Kat this morning and she's just so funny and bubbly and we find it so easy to find stuff to talk about, I am so thankful that she started talking to me.
Me, Kat and Ashleigh then all had coffee together before me and Ashleigh went for a wander around town and then out for a spot of lunch and more coffee! Ashleigh is utterly hilarious as well and neither of them are afraid to ask me questions.
Ashleigh is so much like me, I feel like I can really be myself with both of them and act how I am with Ross but with the girls as well and it's been so long since I felt so comfortable with people. We never stop running out of things to chat about we laughed constantly and also she is so cute!
I would much rather people feel like they can ask me questions about my conditions rather than just googling things and assume that everyone with these conditions is the same. We all vary with how bad our symptoms can get and I think people forget that everyone is different, before May I wasn't even aware of my heart problem, that's how quickly things can change.
I would like to say a huge thank you to the girls and all of ross’ group of friends for taking the time to get to know me and for asking me questions and for all being supportive. None of them had to do that but were all polite enough to welcome me into their group. Yes in life you won't get on with everyone and won't be best friends with everyone which is something I need to learn as I am always wanting to please everyone and I always want everyone to like me but I know that, that is just not realistic anymore.
I would also like to say a huge thank you for anyone who has read my blogs as, I never expected people to read it and follow as much as they do but so many people are behind me on this journey and it's amazing!
I'm going to sign off here, as always feel free to like, share and follow me! Let me know what you think and if you have any questions I'm always happy to answer them. ( I have no picture to put below this time I will take plenty next time we go out, as long as the girls can tolerate me for another day)
Signing off for now,
