Hello, and welcome! I’m Sarah, and I live in a country cottage in Oxfordshire with my husband and our two cats.
In 2009 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition which is made up of a myriad of symptoms including widespread pain, fatigue and limited mobility. After attempting to merge my old life and new condition (and failing quite spectacularly) I decided it was time to look for new hobbies that didn’t require quite so much physical activity. After a while, the hunt for a life less physical became an activity in itself.
By day I work in social sustainability, and I’m incredibly passionate about it. In my spare time I can be found blogging, eating, and sitting in my pyjamas binge-watching the latest Netflix drama. I mainly love pizza, trains, tea and cats. Talk to me about any of those things and we’ll be just fine.
I’m forever on the hunt for new fibro-friendly activities and every now and again I pop off and travel the world.
Although I often focus on activities that are suitable for people who enjoy a life less physical, this blog also features my honest thoughts, my loves and hates, food, lifestyle and wellness – and anything else I happen to be going through on any given day.
I have written for New Life Outlook (Fibromyalgia) over the last couple of years and have shared my thoughts on misdiagnosis, cannabis, hypnotherapy, migraine, anger and many other common topics for chronic patients. I have also worked with many other fabulous bloggers (oops – I just called myself fabulous) on a number of collaborations, and you can read about those here.
Thanks for stopping by. If you want to get in touch, please contact me. I’d love to hear from you.
