Laryngitis Treatment – My Experience with Speech Therapy

Hey there, for those of you that aren’t aware, I have been suffering from chronic laryngitis since May and was referred to an ear, nose and throat specialist. Which is why things have been so quiet around here lately(!) and probably will be for the foreseeable future. As well as seeing a specialist, my doctor has also recently referred me to speech therapy. The specialist I saw couldn’t find anything physically wrong with my vocal cords or voice box, yet I still have little voice and some days, no voice at all. He was unsympathetic and didn’t explain what the […]

Coping with Chronic Laryngitis | Treatments & Diagnosis

Hey there! It’s been a while since my last post about my 21st birthday. I’ve been very unwell recently, so blogging took a bit of a back seat this month. At first, it started with a cold then developed into sinusitis and laryngitis, thankfully the sinusitis cleared up with antibiotics. My laryngitis, however, is getting progressively worse. I have very little voice and some days no voice at all. It’s been five weeks since the initial diagnosis with my doctor meaning what they thought was acute laryngitis is in fact, chronic laryngitis. What is chronic laryngitis? Laryngitis is when your […]

My 21st Birthday Staycation

After my parents threw me a party for my 18th, I knew I wanted something a bit more relaxed to celebrate my 21st birthday. Don’t get me wrong I’m very thankful to them for throwing the party for me and I especially loved my Buffy cake(!). πŸ˜‰ But wanted a more chilled 21st. Especially as I haven’t been feeling too well lately. As luck would have it my Auntie Val was planning a trip to the UK over my birthday, so my mum and I decided to go on a few day trips with her. My auntie lives in the […]

My First Tattoo Experience

As it’s coming up to my 21st birthday I’ve been thinking about tattoos. I marked my 18th birthday with my first (and only) tattoo and I’ve been thinking about adding to it to celebrate my 21st at the start of May. Since my tattoo is related to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I was thinking another Joss Whedon show would be a good addition? But while I’m busy thinking of ideas, I thought it would be a great time to share my first tattoo experience with you. My First Tattoo Experience My first tattoo was a present from my mum and […]

Introducing My Pet Tarantula – Hermy Hermy has been part of our family for over a year now and I honestly couldn’t be happier with him as my pet. […]

Teeth Falling Out Dream Meanings and Interpretations

Have you ever woken up from a particularly strange, or even horrific, dream and wondered what it could mean? Me too. Which is why I’ll often write them down and try to interpret them. It’s something I’ve always been curious about; ever since I read about dreams in an old ‘Mind, Body and Spirit’ magazine as a teenager. That’s not to say I necessarily believe in dream meanings, but certainly, find it interesting. Especially the more obscure ones – like my teeth falling out, which is a recurring one I’ve been having recently. In the dream, my teeth are falling […]
