Having a moment of calm following an afternoon at the hospital getting the third dose of a new drug to make me better. It’s pretty strong and I’ve got the mother of all bruises on my tummy, but I’m so grateful to the NHS for this! The first medication that’s actually working. Here’s hoping for remission in the near future. 🤞🏻
Really looking forward to stomping around Edinburgh on Sunday as part of @crohnsandcolitisuk’s Walk It events with the rest of Team Slytherpuff! •
Did you know that £100, will allow at least 5 people who are at crisis point to get the advice and support they need from Crohn’s and Colitis UK’s helpline.
£113 can fund a full days research into IBD.
£1200 would be able to support the training of a specialist IBD Nurse.
Any donation you can spare would be greatly appreciated to help improve the lives of those affected by IBD. •
My life has changed for the better over the last 21years due to kind people supporting research and I want to be able to make a difference to someone else’s life you taking part in this fundraising challenge.
Thank you :) •
“Hi I’m Beckie and I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis around 11 years ago. .
Before diagnosis, I went from 9.5 stone down to 6.5 stone in the matter of weeks. I was unable to eat without it going straight through me, and I was scared of going anywhere in case I got caught short and there was no loo. .
Upon diagnosis I was on 9 steroid tablets per day plus 6 anti inflammatories to calm the storm in my intestine. Since then I’ve got myself better, got married and had 2 little girls! Keep fighting everyone! 😘👊🏻”

Another Friday another @aldiuk trip! Everything highlighted in blue is what we go over to @asda to buy (anything to speed up the process). In the tub above are ‘bribes’....anything to ease the pain of dragging a two year old around 2 supermarkets...wish me luck 😩🤦♀️)
✨ International day of Yoga & the Summer Solstice ✨ - such a beautiful day! Sadly between work, events & packing, yoga hasn’t happened today but it’s a practice I hold so close. My time to switch off, reconnect with myself and through which, with the help of my wonderful teachers @mudra.yoga I have made so many friends and such a wonderful community in Edinburgh! #youdontdoyogayoufeelyoga
Love finding a GF product without the price tag! This @aldiuk korma stir in sauce is an easy meal after being at work all day. Chris can’t handle any Indian spice what so ever (so he had a beige freezer dinner instead 🥔🍕🍟🍞)
