I’ve been taking my daily dose of Symprove’s good guys for nearly three years now. For me, it acts as my IBS comfort blanket. It holds my hand each morning as I prepare my sensitive gut for the day ahead.
I’m a long-term glasses wearer. I picked up my first pair at some point during year 5 when I must have been around 10 years old. In my teens I went for gold-rimmed frames, channeling Harry Potter before he’d even become a thing.
Never did I imagine that I’d end up on the local radio talking about IBS, frequent bowel movements and how I manage my gut health.
A big family buffet obviously called for high-waisted jeans with a generous kick flare.
These shoes should come with a warning because they’re so bedazzled, I truly believe they could blind you. Have at it.
Having IBS for well over 11 years has taught me a lot about myself, from learning where the nearest loos are at all times to realising that I have anxiety that I can’t always control. In honour of IBS Awareness Month I’m sharing what I’ve learnt…
March has been a pretty tough month. My IBS has been all over place, I’ve been putting myself under a lot of pressure and have had some tough family stuff going on. I’ve also managed to squeeze in some beautiful baby cuddles and family time to put a smile on my face.
I am incredibly lazy when it comes to my makeup in the morning. I have a 10-minute slot where I try to throw enough slap on my little face to make me look semi human.
IBS leaves me feeling lethargic 99.9% of the time. Even when I’m having minimal symptoms, I still feel tired. I ache, I yawn, I feel heavy and I crave rest and sleep.
