Surviving Life’s Hurdles has been created to provide some much-needed support to anyone struggling with their own personal life hurdles.  I’ve experienced so many of my own hurdles recently that I know just how hard it can be and sometimes how very isolating too.  I really hope I can help you to make a positive difference to your life just by sharing some of my own ideas and experiences.

Most importantly, Surviving Life’s Hurdles will offer support with no judgement or assumptions, instead I aspire to provide understanding, thoughtful and sympathetic posts which are genuinely useful and inspiring when you need them the most.


More about me

I’m Natalie, I’m 32 and I live with my partner and lovely 3 year old son who both help to keep me going whenever times get tough!

Since being diagnosed with MS 2 years ago my life has changed completely and many of the plans I had for my future are no longer possible.  Life has suddenly become a lot harder and I have many more problems to deal with every single day.  I am, however, determined to survive all of my life hurdles by accepting and adapting to my current situation and by taking positive action whenever possible.

With this in mind, I will set myself small goals each month and will share my progress with you so you can see how I’m doing.  Feel free to join me in some goal-setting too as the more we can motivate each other the better!
