By a London Girl

A tale of knitting, food, interstitial cystitis and general angst, all homemade in the UK.

I don’t agree with this, for me at least. My illness is very much a part of me and affects everything I do. If I never had this illness I would be a different person and I would be doing different things. Reducing the amount I talk about being ill would make it even harder for other people to understand, and probably harder for me to get my head around. Just my opinion.

I get where it’s coming from but I don’t think it’s healthy to tell people not to talk about their illness. Talking about difficult situations is proven to help you process and work through problems in a productive way.In my own personal experience not talking about what what happening actually escalated my issues and introduced some very unwelcome additional problems.I think whoever made this is talking more about avoiding “illness behaviour” which can exacerbate your experience symptoms and result in poorer outcomes in situations where you are able to recover or improve your health. I use this a lot with my patients who are experiencing subacute back pain who are at risk of developing chronic pain and try to educate them away from the patterns of behaviour which could lead them there. That doesn’t, however, mean that you should suppress your issues by pretending they aren’t there and forcing yourself to think/talk about other things. Especially if your illness is chronic. I think then it is possibly more about acceptance than anything else and acceptance is different for everyone. View high resolution

So I had an urge to bake at 8.30pm.

And hour and a half later a caramelised garlic and butternut squash tart is in the oven! 

I am so excited.

And I smell so garlicky. There are 15 garlic cloves in it. Noms. View high resolution

Designer Goula Figeura’s Orwell day bed lets you easily shut yourself off from the outside world with its light and noise-cancelling curtains.

I have a MIGHTY NEED.
