    Wishing you a happier and healthier new year. I’m sorry with what you’ve experienced from some people. Shocking and unnecessary. 🙁

    Anne . I don’t know how you do it but you above anyone else I know makes the most of every situation and I know 2019 will be a great year for you with the holidays planned and optimism.
    Do let a minority get you down x

    Anne. You are an inspiration and I really admire your positive attitude. I hope that 2019 is an amazing year for you and your family

    It sounds to me like you have come very far, learning to cope with pain and people and so many challenges. You are a strong, capable woman and I wish you the best in 2019.
    Happy New Year my friend.

    You keep on keeping on. That in inspirational in itself and you talk yourself down too much. I hope you get that overseas trip – great for giving a new perspective on life always. Happy New Year to you and yours! No resolutions here but a plan to accept myself warts and all far more and give up on that strive for perfection nonsense which is always doomed to fail anyway. Good enough is good enough! #BlogCrush

    Hi, I’d never heard of Stiff Person Syndrome. But have now looked it up. Seems to me you’ve come a long way.
    You certainly find out who your real friends are when you experience such a dramatic life change. Have fun with enjoying the moment, taking the kids abroard and creating great family experiences x #blogcrush

    Oh I had no idea your condition had appeared so abruptly – that must be very difficult to come to terms with.

    Having had a chronic illness (which I was told would be permanent but was lucky to only have for 6yrs after using a trial treatment which worked miracles!), I really relate to what you right here. It is hard to keep positive, especially when people you thought cared seem to disappear at the time in your life when you need them the most.

    But you have the right attitude – keep fighting, keep enjoying the moments that you can, and push for more, keep trying new medications and options and don’t settle (if I’d have become cynical and given up trying, I’d still be ill right now) – you never know when you might hit a breakthrough that eases the pain #blogcrush
