Pete decided I could walk him this morning. Luckily I've semi taught him to "go slow" to prevent him from barreling down steep descents. Also lucky that it was super early and shitty weather, so there were no dog/people/bear distractions to hinder him in remembering he learned the command. I know I'm not ready for real walks with him but it was nice to get a little one in successfully. #walkswithpete #petethepom #eyecontactmeanstimetowalk #hysterectomyrecovery #wombthereitisnt

Felt like I needed to look back at where I've come from this year. 😢

This photo is from Jan 2nd. I was in the hospital recovering from emergency surgery as a result of a poorly done hysterectomy in December that resulted in a damaged branch of my femoral artery. 😡😠 This was the 2nd time I was in a hospital from hemorrhaging in 1 week. I had hemorrhaged exactly one week prior to this and was already anemic.
I slept the whole next day after my surgery. I woke up on the 2nd day weak, couldn't walk without feeling like I was going to pass out. Massive headaches from blood loss. I couldn't eat and had no strength.
But my family was by my side 💖💖. My husband was by my side. I have wonderful sister in laws that stepped in and helped either by visiting and checking on me, sitting with me while my husband had to get the girls. Or taking the girls for the weekend so I could rest and recooperate. My aunt's and uncles came to visit and kept me company because I was scared to be alone, even in the hospital. My mom and dad, my grandparents all there with love and compassion. All pulling together to help me through that difficult time.

My friends as well checked on me, kept me going. 💖

I went home the next night a scared woman. I kept thinking, it's going to happen again, and this time I won't make it, feeling helpless, scared. But I knew I wasn't alone. I prayed and was calm. I knew no matter what happened, I would be ok and so would my family.

I still have flashbacks to this day about those Sundays when it happened. Sometimes the emotions are debilitating and I can't be in my own home because I become so anxious I panic. Or I felt the need to sleep all the feelings away. Or I emotionally ate all the crap food...
🍰🥃
But now that I have gotten my strength back and am working on building more, I am finding better ways to deal with this anxiety. Instead of shutting down, I take Higgins for a walk or do a stretching video. 🏋️️‍♀️💪💖 I have a hope and a desire to live my life without anxiety interfering and that's what I plan to do. 💖🏋️️‍♀️

So let me tell you a little bit about what I was thinking for this pendant. I wanted it to be like a fertility symbol but for those women where that part of life is over. Or for someone who’s chosen a different path. Starting at the top, the yellow apatite represents hope and optimism. The vesuvianite promotes inner healing and following your heart. I added the amazonite at the last minute, but it turns out it’s a calming stone that brings about balance and harmony. The markings on the side are meant to represent the stretch marks on a woman’s body. I made them gold to make them stand out as powerful representations of life and of the battle that all women go through. Now onto the moonstone. There’s an emptiness that comes when you go through what I’ve been through. There’s no way to tattoo over the scars or even embrace them as something beautiful. So I wanted to celebrate it in a different way. If I could decorate that space, what would it look like? Does that sound crazy..lol. It probably does, but we’re gonna go with it anyway! Moonstone is usually considered a fertility stone, but I wanted to use it for its magic. And that flash! Oh, and the roses are just because I wanted black roses 😁.

#RG @helenwilsonbeevers Ever since having babies, endometriosis-related hormone treatment and now surgical menopause, I’ve struggled with the condition of my hair
.
I started taking these @lumitylife (not an ad) 3 months ago when Lumity gifted them to me. Noticing a difference within weeks, yesterday my hairstylist couldn’t believe how thick my hair was- @teohnax saw a huge difference
.
I swear it’s these amazing supplements and am totally hooked, as well as extremely grateful it’s improving
.
Also thank you for the love on insta stories, I’ve opened up a bit more about my health journey recently and was a bit nervous at first. I’m really glad I have though- you’ve got to just be brave in the face of a challenge huh? Oh and gorgeous earrings always help too ❤️

I had this huge post planned to talk about what this pendant means to me, but I don’t know if I’m ready to talk about it yet..lol. I made this not only for myself but in support of @ellenrococo and her beautiful work. Please keep doing what you’re doing!

💃 🎉 Yahoo! The #SkeinTwister is in my house! I am so excited! Carrie @alpenglowyarn, has created a yarn twisting tool that will twist skeins of yarn with far less strain on my body.

My wrists don't bend as I have a titanium plate in each of them. So hubby and son were recruited for yarn twisting duty and they did a great job.

Day 20 of #hysterectomyrecovery so I won't be playing with this for a little while, but I sure am happy that I got it!

Spring & my favorite tree. .
If it wasn’t my neighbor’s tree I may sell it.

The beauty is indescribable some days but the pain it brings me is about the same. Darn these seasonal allergies!

CT scan yesterday in which I chugged 64 ounces of nasty in record time. “You have an hour to drink this,” they said. Tiddlywinks. I laugh at your hour. #hysterectomyrecovery #granulosa

2 weeks post op and everything looks good! Hey ladies , this is my gentle bossing you around to go get you lady parts checked. Do it for yourself, for your daughter's if you them, show others what self care can look like! I'm not gonna lie, it has been a hassle, it has been a lot of tests to figure what was going on with my body. Mind you, I didn't go because I was having symptoms, I went to get eyes on my ovaries because of my mom. Ovaries checked out but other things didn't.And had I not gone, well I'd be doing cancer treatments in my near future. None of this to scare you, just to encourage to love you and your body enough to have it checked on the regular. Message me if you need a doc recommendation! This was the first time I've picked a doc all on my own. My mom was my doctor "Google" and it can be overwhelming to navigate that on your own! 😘 .

Day 20 post op & today I’ve dyed my hair, put makeup on & painted my nails.... admittedly I’m knackered now but I am definitely feeling more ‘me’ than I have in years. #surgeryrecovery #hysterectomyrecovery #endometriosisawareness #endometriosis #adenomyosis #adenomyosisawareness #painfree #turnedacorner

Still feeling woozy, light headed and heavy legged after Sunday so ordered to rest from running for a week (personally I think resting from work would be more beneficial but there you go) suspect anaemia has kicked in again but won't know for sure without blood tests. Anyway doing as I'm told because running over the #greatnorthrun Tyne Bridge is an event I'm determined to be fit and healthy for come September 😊 my first proper #hysterectomyrecovery setback but I will get there! .

Transformations come in many different forms... a year ago I went thru a full hysterectomy. The one where they cut all your stomach muscles to do what they need to do. While the recovery has been a hard long road, it's been worth every step. Still not where I want to be, but closer than I was!! .

Recovery update: I still exist 😂 But seriously, I'm doing well, in low pain, and still trying to just "take it easy" - and not go stir crazy. Stopped the hard drugs yesterday and I'm feeling better without them today. But I've got a few spare for the inevitable return of more pain as I continue to heal. #hysterectomy #hystersister #wombthereitisnt #hairbybed #hysterectomyrecovery

Who doesn't love cake testing?!?
.
This was a new recipe for me. To say I was nervouse was a bit of an understatement. .
Guess what? My clients loved every last bite of their mini cake! (They even order often from a bakery that is known for Burnt Almond Torte.)
.
A little more than two weeks left before the real deal. So excited for my clients and their life together!

There’s no words to express how thankful i am & the gratitude I have for everyone that sent me so much love yesterday. I felt all your hugs & prayers.
Everything went good. I had some spots of endometriosis, a small cyst on my ovary and a couple small fibroids. But no more uterus! 💗😂

I am finding that in my journey to become more physically healthy and fit that I am also becoming more emotionally and mentally healthy.. 💖💖 This lesson can be hard to learn for some, me included. I didn't have trouble being myself as a teenager. But after I was in my early 20's and my bipolar and anxiety disorder came into my life I have found it hard to be my true self. It has taken me about 9 years, but I feel like I am finding myself again. I feel genuinely happy 😁 most days, and I'm finding it easier and easier to block out and counter the negative self talk that has been a part of my life for soo long. I am finding that I am singing to myself at work again, which I have been so self conscious about because I am not a good singer but I love it. I am laughing and being myself around people other than my husband. 💖💖Tell me one thing that is unique about you that makes you beautiful 💖💖

Your girl broke free! 🔓 🙌 Yes, it's only a trip to the doctor but I'll take what I can get. Staples come out today..woohoo 😉 (Day 7 after surgery) #myjourney #hysterectomyrecovery #hysterectomy #hystersister

With all of the health issues I’ve struggled with in the last 8 yrs I can confirm that I am one of those people who goes the whole hog when it comes to being ill 🤦🏽‍♀️ I don’t do things by halves -
I get ‘aggressive’ cancer.
I get hormone receptive cancer.
I get ‘severe’ endometriosis.
All of my reproductive organs stick together and also to other organs like my bowel.
I have babies - I end up with 2 c-sections and later find out due to complications in healing my uterus is fused to my stomach wall hence the lower abdomen pain for the last 11yrs.
I have a hysterectomy at 35yrs old and let me tell you I am most definitely not one of those women who ‘sail’ through the menopause!!
And when it comes to side effects of things - surgery, drugs, menopause - I get hit like a ton of bricks! 👊🏻 One of the less serious & least painful side effects of all of the above but probably the most annoying has been weight gain 🙈 (Falling in love 6 yrs ago 100% didn’t help with that either!🙄😍)
I looked at myself over xmas and I didn’t know who I was. I knew I was still a Mummy, a fiancée, a Childminder, a smiley face...but I realised I’d lost me. I rarely did anything for me and I didn’t like the me I was on the outside or the inside if I’m pretty honest.
The hysterectomy took away a lot of my chronic pain, the chemo gave me my life back, my children, fiancée and work give me a purpose. But I was sad, tired, unfit, unkind on my body and very very aware of my own mortality.

So I made a decision to find me again.
It’s a work in progress. But I’m stronger physically, all of my clothes are looser on me, I’m loving training - not just for the physical results but for the fact that everyday I train, every session is another shot at nurturing my body to keep me alive. That’s is the seriousness of it for me. Physical exercise and a healthy lifestyle could literally save my life. Keeping my bones strong as I can’t take HRT could literally prevent me from having osteoporosis.
With the support of my fiancée, my 2 amazing children who also love to train and my lovely PT friend who encourages, advises and pushes me on a regular basis I’m actually doing it - and I’m loving it!
