It’s my birthday on the 20th April, and I’m really not looking forwards to it as it’s going to be ridiculously empty & I hoped anyone reading this could help.
I’m Very disabled & I have to spend 95% of the time in bed & most of that lying down flat. I’m in immense & constant pain and my head feels like I have permanent flu all the time (real proper fevery flu).
As you can imagine this
is not very conducive to making real life friends, I did have lots when I
was fit and well and could put time and effort into keeping up
friendships, but they’ve dwindled somewhat now that I can’t. I also have
a very teeny family. & I’ve worked out that on my birthday I’ll have 1 present and about 6 cards to open if I’m lucky.
wondered if, out of the kindness of your hearts, on the 20th April you
could send me a fun message to cheer me up, or tag me in a post, or
write something to me to keep me occupied, or post something nice for me
to look at & take my mind off the dullness of being in bed 24/7.
this for any kind of sympathy or pity – it’s just that my birthday is
quite utterly sad otherwise - for the past 2 years I’ve asked people to do this & I
got a wonderful response and even last year had some amazing people send me things from my Amazon wish list, so I had actual presents to open, which was most unexpected and utterly delightful.
My about me page is (here) incase you’d like to read more on why I’m disabled. There are also pictures from my random former life & my mad hair colours!
Edited to add my Amazon wishlist because peeps asked for it (here). & I added vouchers in case peeps prefer that to choosing things, bless you so much.
Oodles of Love, Nixxie
