    I suppose it is a good thing that Star doesn’t have Chron’s disease but not knowing what it is must be frustrating. I hope you both get some answers soon.
    I am glad your new pain is nothing to worry about and I always take it as a good sign if the tests aren’t rushed through as it can’t be that bad. Fingers crossed everything is OK with that.
    Well done with the video. I am sure it will help a lot of people.
    I am worrying more than my youngest about her GCSE’s. I think that is the case here that the school is keeping them all calm.
    It sounds like you have a lot of plans like writing a book and the courses. Good luck with them. x

    Thank you for joining us again, Anne, I always appreciate it 🙂 I’m sorry to hear about your family situation and your prolonged health issues. I think waiting is the worst part of chronic illness life. When I read the part about fantasising about normality, I could so relate to that. I just want a normal life with kids in tow, ferrying them to school, and all that stuff. Boring stuff haha. Thank you for joining us once again!

    Thank you for sharing your journey with chronic illness. Your openness and honesty are inspiring, and it’s great to see you making progress in managing your symptoms. Keep up the good work!

    It’s great that there’s nothing sinister causing that extra pain but having extra pain is just unfair! What a great opportunity to help the doctors understand more about your condition and treatment by filming the video. I know what you mean about being uncomfortable about it. I don’t like cameras pointed at me. Im seeing a specialist about some thyroid nodules in a couple of weeks. I’ve had a fine needle aspiration a couple of years ago and they weren’t cancerous but they are really obvious now and I’ve become obsessed ever since an insensitive person said hey what is that tumor on your neck! Anyway it really helped me to read about your thyroid and I love your attitude about how it’s treatable. Thanks Anne ?

    Thank you for sharing. I just jumped back into doing this link up after a bit of a hiatus from writing and I really relate to a lot of what you’ve shared in your post. I appreciate how your writing includes both hope/optimism and worry, as it’s just such a refreshingly real insight.
