First things first, thank you SO much for all of the love and support during my withdrawal process. If you saw my 'I want to hide away' post you'll know that I have been withdrawing from strong medication for my M.E. It has been a really tough few weeks, tougher than I ever anticipated hence my absence, but all of the lovely comments on my previous post and over on my twitter have meant so much so thank you, you guys are the best.
Now, onto the outfit!
I've been after some lace trousers for ages so I was pleased when I saw this white jumpsuit in H&M last month. (Which is now only £15 by the way so don't miss out on this bargain!) It's fab because it's great for summer but you can also whack on a shirt over it on a slightly cooler day. I'm all about getting more for your money, and let's face it, the way summer is going at the moment, I'm not going to get much wear out of this without layering it up. BRITISH SUMMER SUCKS. WHY DID I EVER LEAVE SPAIN?
You may also notice two other things. The first being that I no longer have blue hair, so to all of the hardcore fans of the blue hair I sincerely apologise but it was too high maintenance for this spoonie. The second is that I have some 'funky, cool 'n' edgy art' over my skin... I'm kind of obsessed with flash tattoos at the moment, decorating your face is so fun and I highly recommend it. Check out IAMU Collective for some Inspiration. My Dad freaked out when he thought they were real, I went along with it for a bit, but then I had to stop because he was about to have a mental breakdown.

I'm still feeling a little temperamental but I hope it won't be too long until my next post. In the meantime you can stay up to date by following me on Instagram, here, or on twitter, here.

I've decided to stop taking drugs. Hard, strong pain killer prescription drugs that is (not THAT kind, don't worry) that I have been taking everyday for the past few years to ease my chronic pain and I want to hide away. Or sleep and not wake up until the withdrawal process is over.
I have always shared my journey with M.E on my blog, and I always will do, and I will always do it honestly, and right now the honest truth is coming off of them is kinda hell. They told me it would be, but jeeeez! Body - cut me some slack please?! I hope though that it is going to be for the greater good and a positive decision in the long term.
I'm still on some medication and pain relief, but I want to see how I handle being on some lighter stuff as the side effects of the heavier drugs are often more of a pain than the actual pain itself! I'm bored of hallucinating tbh. I just need to ride the wave and see it through but I wanted to let you guys know as I may be a bit quiet for a few days, and some of you may even have some advice for me. I should also state that I have discussed with my doctor and we have a plan in place, and you should never stop taking medication without discussing it with them first. I've also been gradually reducing my dosage over the past month or so and I would not advise going cold turkey with something like this.
On a brighter note, I have some exciting news to share with you soon, possibly in my next blog post so stay tuned! Ohhh the suspense!
