What I know about surviving life’s hurdles

My biggest life hurdles happened back in September 2015 and altered the course of my life dramatically.

I discovered I had Multiple Sclerosis with the onset of some rapidly worsening symptoms which significantly impacted on every aspect of my life, including my health, wellbeing, family and relationships,  

If you’re interested in finding out a bit more about the path I’m on and how I make life with a chronic illness work for me, take a look at my About page.

Where to go from here

Surviving Life’s Hurdles is a place to share my interests, creativity and crafts and my health and wellbeing struggles whilst living with Multiple Sclerosis but it’s also somewhere where I can also help others to know they are not alone too.

With that in mind, I’ve put together some of my most popular and helpful blog posts, whether they’re to do with MS/chronic illness, family life or creative ideas, if it’s an article which has helped a lot of people then I’ve included it!

Popular posts

I’ve organised my posts into categories so you can easily find inspirational ideas and help relating to a broad range of topics.  Here are a couple of my most popular articles from each;

The Surviving Life Book Club Facebook group

the surviving life book club

I recently set up an online book club for anyone who would love to be part of a book club but would find it difficult to attend physical meet ups (for whatever reason).  You can join our Facebook group here, I also wrote a blog post which explains a bit more about what the book club is about and how I came up with the idea!

I really hope that my blog helps you and I wholeheartedly wish you all the best in surviving your own life hurdles, whatever form they may take.

Remember; even if it doesn’t feel like it right now, you have the power and the strength to survive what life is throwing your way!
