• Getting Beth Better

    Posted on June 5, 2015 by Beth Rye in Uncategorized.

    I’m so happy to say that the gettingbethbetter campaign is going amazingly and has reached out to so many people. It’s not only kept me focused through a tough couple of weeks but all your generosity has taken a huge financial pressure of our shoulders already. And the events haven’t even started yet! We have […]

  • U.S.A here we come!

    Posted on May 23, 2015 by Beth Rye in Uncategorized.

    What a week it’s been. Wristbands, fundraising , appointments and U.S. visas… My brain is exhausted. Today marks exactly two years of being dizzy. The day before this I was applying for jobs as a Paediatric nurse and was busy finishing off my final placement. So who would have thought that now two years on, I would still […]

  • Dreaming.

    Posted on May 16, 2015 by Beth Rye in Uncategorized.

    Being in a dream where I’m not spinning around is a rare occasion for me. Last night I was at a dream-like cinema and shopping with some nice man in a shirt. I then woke up and remembered my reality, which was a bit of a bummer to say the least. I’ve definitely forgotten the feeling […]

  • 25th Birthday..

    Posted on May 11, 2015 by Beth Rye in Uncategorized.

    I was pretty excited about my birthday coming up. With the thought of family time, BBQing and just the usual birthday fun. I guess I didn’t really expect the day to be a massive challenge both physically and mentally. But I guess this is expected when there is just no getting away from such debilitating symptoms. […]

  • One step closer…

    Posted on May 7, 2015 by Beth Rye in Uncategorized.

    My brain is still buzzing after a Skype discussion with a U.S. Surgeon last night. Someone who is finally able to explain EVERYTHING to me! What a dream. He backed up all the research i’ve done which makes me feel like I am definitely right to explore other options for my treatment. Looking at my […]

  • Two years and counting…

    Posted on May 5, 2015 by Admin in Uncategorized.

    It’s hard to believe that this month marks two years of being ill. I find it even harder to believe that before my symptoms started, I was completely fine! The few weeks and days before I was living a busy life; going out with my Uni friends, working long shifts on my nursing placement, swimming, […]

  • New Years 2014

    Posted on May 3, 2015 by Admin in Uncategorized.

    I want this blog to also be about the things I have managed to do and achieve over the past couple of years, despite the dizziness. So here is one of my favourites! The one and only little get away I’ve had during this ordeal. A million % worth feeling more ill for. At this […]

  • Treatment in the USA… Only option?

    Posted on May 3, 2015 by Admin in Uncategorized.

    U.S.A Surgeon number 1 in the States wants me to go over for further testing and possible SSCD surgery (depending on test results). Even though I’ve already had a million tests over here, they are not as ‘sophisticated’ as those in the States. Please read below for more on this! Ever since being diagnosed I discovered […]

  • Spring time

    Posted on April 29, 2015 by Admin in Uncategorized.

    Who’d have thought that just getting into the garden on a beautiful sunny day would be such a challenge. As we hit spring time and the sun starts to beam through my windows I find it more and more difficult to deal with my situation. Getting downstairs in itself makes my symptoms much worse(and is […]

  • From carer to being cared for

    Posted on April 29, 2015 by Admin in Uncategorized.

    Nursing has been my dream job for as long as I can remember. In 2010 I started my Paediatric Nursing course in Oxford and I couldn’t be happier about it! The course itself was massively challenging and a lot of work but this was far out weighed by the rewards of being on placement.    […]
