It’s so weird how one person can make you feel so much. With one word they could make you fall in love. With one touch they could take your breath away. With one kiss they could leave you wanting more. With one look they could make your stomach twist. One person can make you completely, foolishly, and crazy in love.

Easy afternoons after busy days, soft ukulele jams, golden light streaming through my windows, my big girl home from school snuggled up next to me where she belongs, my tiniest faerie pulling at my legs to pick her up. THIS is my definition of bliss.

Excessive sweating - finally a solution!

I know a lot of us spoonies really struggle with temperature control and fort a lot of people that can result in excessive sweating. Because of my. Adrenal insufficiency this has been one of my worst symptoms that made me feel disgusting, unhygienic (sweating so much when I had a bath that I felt less clean after!) and really quite miserable and I just wanted to share what has worked for me.

I’ll stress that for me this really was a huge problem, the slightest bit of movement would start me sweating and I take a small towel with me wherever I go as walking always results in dripping with sweat. I can’t straighten my hair because the heat makes me so hot that my hair gets soaked with sweat and it goes curly again. Ive had to change my clothes three times a day if I did anything other than sit at a desk. Excessive sweating made me feel so crap for so many reasons.

But recently ive been doing a combination of taking sage tablets and using Sure maximum protection anti perspirant and for the first time ever I’m seeing a difference.

The deodorant actually works and makes my sweat smell good which is literally the first time a deodorant has worked for me. I don’t know if you have it outside the UK but this is definitely one to try. But it’s the Sage which has really has taken so much power out of the sweats.

Yes I’ll still sweat in a warm place more than most people probably do but I’m no longer drenched in sweat and I can do a lot more before I start getting sweaty. Also for the first time in a long time, no night sweats! I take Natures Aid 50 mg sage tablets once in the morning though I don’t think the brand really matters.

I don’t want to tell you taking a supplement will fix all your problems cause it won’t and I know how annoying that is to hear but if you’ve been wondering about getting sage tablets I just wanted to share my first hand experience of how good it’s been for me. I really hope this helps someone x

I’m just so fucking lost. He doesn’t love me back, and I know I should move on. But half of me wants to stay because maybe loving him is safer than loving anybody else. I don’t know what to do anymore. He acts so funny and nice and he’s just so fit for me. I’m with him and I’m on top of the world. It feels like I’m flying but it all crashes when I realize that I’m just his best friend. And that’s it. No feelings. Not even a little. He doesn’t fucking love me and and he even said it and yet my idiot of a heart still has a little hope he does. Everyone says listen to your heart, that it’ll always end up right. But my heart is stupid to believe that he could love me. I don’t know if it’s his actions or his words or the way he looks at me with his ocean eyes. I can’t make him love me. And he never will. Why can’t my damn heart just understand that?
