Hello March | 2019



March is here! Which, hopefully, means Springtime is going to be coming soon! I cannot wait for flowers, pastel shades and a makeup bag change for the new season.



February started with very mixed feelings for me. I haven't really spoken about it on my blog much before but I pay privately to speak to my counsellor twice a week so my February started off with me more forced on that as I had ended January having really bad horrible anxiety attacks. I spent a lot of my February thinking about the year ahead and making lots of plans to keep me busy, I'd had a really rough year last year so really want to make the best out of this year as possible.

The middle of the month actually turned out to be really hard work for me. I unexpectedly got some bad news after bad news and due to the anxiety and stress of it all battled with my health more than I would have liked to do so - and was put on one month's worth steroids to calm my health down. Thankfully after a couple of days of being on them, they did help a lot but I had to cancel some plans I had made which made me sad. If you suffer from a chronic illness you'll know how horrible it is to make plans and have to cancel them last minute because your body is just like "no" - it's really crappy.

The biggest problem I faced this month was sleeping downstairs in our living room for pretty much the whole of the month. As you probably already know I use a wheelchair yet live in a house which means that I have a stairlift, sadly it broke and as we had to go through the process of finding a new one and having it fitted it meant that I had to spend all of my time downstairs in our home, including bringing our guest room single bed downstairs for me to sleep in. I hated it, and to be honest the whole process of it all took a lot longer than it should have done as we were messed about a little bit.

However, after what seemed to turn out to be a crappy month February ended rather okay and I finally started to get on top of things again with life and with blogging. I finally feel content and happy again and I'm looking forward to a new month starting to see what it has in store for me.


How was your February? Did you do anything special? Do you have any plans for March? I'd love to hear from you so let me know by leaving me a comment below,

With love, Alisha Valerie. x

  20. Thanks for sharing your experience. I struggled with anxiety and panic attacks for the better part of a decade. They can be debilitating. I'm sorry your month was a bit of a struggle. Also, I am happy to have discovered your blog. I will be back.

  21. It’s so empowering when people share their struggles, I struggle with PTSD and knowing others have anxiety attacks and deal with this makes me feel so normal about it so thank you! Here’s to an amazing March x please feel free to check my blog out - lifeoflou590.wordpress.com
