AD | Hello my lovelies, happy Monday, I really hope that you're all having a wonderful start to your week and a fresh happy start to your month! I always love it when a new month starts on a Monday, it just makes it feel so positive, motived and like anything is possible.
I started the month hoping that lockdown would be over with quickly, I had passed my halfway point from my doctor (I was given the date of 23rd June 2020 for my health personally) and was ready to start planning what I wanted to do with my summer. Then, I got an email that changed everything... I received a new date of an extra ninety days which meant my new date to get out of lockdown is going to be September 23rd 2020.
During the middle of May, I went through a really scary time of having a rheumatoid arthritis flare-up which I haven't had in such a long time. If you follow me on Instagram then you'll probably know this already as I shared my stories but after suffering really badly and spending way too many nights of crying myself to sleep (which tbh I was hardly having sleep for more than two hours anyway), I ended up having to get an emergency hospital appointment for a steroid injection. Thankfully within seventy-two hours, it was kicked in and I'm feeling back to normal again. As much as I love our NHS, being in the hospital itself was really scary and made me feel super anxious, it was a horrible time.
I ended the month feeling really positive and motivated for the summer to start now that I'm out of the horrible pain I was in. Although I'm stuck at home due to the lockdown we are lucky enough to thankfully have a garden that we can go get some fresh air and relax in safely so when I'm not blogging and doing social media work I plan on doing as much as that as possible.
How was your May? What did you get up to? What are your goals for June and the summer months ahead? I'd love to know your thoughts so please leave me a little comment of love below and let me know your views? I'm sending you all so much love for a wonderful day x
With love, Alisha Valerie. x
