Musings and Snoozes

A little bit about the lizard (updated)

So I’m still Laura, I’m still nicknamed Lizard, but I’m a bit older (and wiser?!) and have a few more diagnoses now, so I thought I best update this a bit!

I’m now 29 and have Fibromyalgia, Sjogrens Syndrome, Hypermobility, and Lupus, though the last one is still in progress as no one doctor seems to agree with another one.

I initially set this blog up to try and look for patterns and ups and downs in my illness, but now I know myself and my body a bit better, it’s a little more varied and tends to contain a lot more about how to look after the mental side of my conditions as well as the physical.

When I’m not being a burrito lizard in my blanket fort, I can generally be found in a coffee shop, usually with a good book. And on a very good day, at any kind of motorsport event or a gig, thought you can guarantee to find me recovering the day after!

I’ve been married now for three years and it’s still my husband who both keeps my feet on the ground when I get a bit carried away, and who also looks after me when it’s too much effort to get from the sofa to bed in an evening! I also have bloody awesome friends and family to look after me. Essentially, I am very lucky!

So there you go, I don’t promise to always be exciting or especially interesting, but I daresay there’ll be enough of the crazy to make up for the mundane 🙂
