• A different kind of NY Christmas…

    Posted on December 24, 2016 by Beth Rye in Uncategorized.

    I am now 3 weeks into my treatment! I don’t really know how to express into words how hard this trip has been. I have never felt so utterly drained and empty inside… I knew this was going to be tough but I honestly don’t think anything can prepare you for how difficult this really is. […]

  • U.S.A. 3rd time lucky

    Posted on November 20, 2016 by Beth Rye in Uncategorized.

    Treatment update** For those of you who don’t already know! I am not having Lyme disease treatment in the U.K. This was a decision I made soon after my diagnosis and realising the horrifying truth about the care of people living with what can be an incredibly debilitating chronic illness. A tick bite can be […]

  • Chronic Lyme disease – the final piece of my health jigsaw!

    Posted on September 17, 2016 by Beth Rye in Uncategorized.

    It’s taken me a long while to get my head round writing this post because I think it’s the most complicated out of all of them (just when you think I can’t get anymore complicated…?!). As some of you know I had mixed results from the vestibular therapy in the summer, yes my balance has […]

  • Coping with a chronic illness

    Posted on February 24, 2016 by Beth Rye in Uncategorized.

    If only I could pretend that everything is fine. Real life is never easy, not to mention when we are sick. Most days I am OK and I can deal with my symptoms, but very rarely there are days where I can’t cope at all. Where I hate that this ever happened to me. Over […]

  • London round 2

    Posted on February 24, 2016 by Beth Rye in Uncategorized.

    Made it back from a 4 day long trip to London. What a roller coaster! Yesterday I had to trek to 3 different hospitals which was absolutely exhausting and made me pretty sick (I don’t do good with car journeys). BUT I gained so much from it. Firstly, I got to see an ENT professor […]

  • Life as a jigsaw puzzle

    Posted on February 21, 2016 by Beth Rye in Uncategorized.

    Right, I’m going to attempt to explain what is a very complicated jigsaw puzzle here. Me being this jigsaw puzzle! As most of you know, I haven’t recovered as expected from my SCD surgery because I got sick at around 10 weeks post op. This was recently put down to a condition called gastroparesis. Many […]

    ‘Eat well, live better’. This quote is far easier said than done when you are living with gastroparesis. Yet it is still more important than ever. Every little bite & every sip you take needs to be a nutritious one. Not wasted on high processed and sugary junk. Again, this is NOT easy when certain […]

  • 6 months post op!

    Posted on January 31, 2016 by Beth Rye in Uncategorized.

    6 months post surgery 🙌🏼 Such an unexpected few months. Things have improved in so many ways yet gone so backwards in others. My balance continues to amaze me with the improvements I see on a weekly basis. This week I even made it my favourite hair salon! This was my first salon trip since […]
