An Apology



I just wanted to quickly apologise for the lack of outfit posts I've been bringing you lately. I've gone from posting them a few times a week to barely at all. It's not because I've lost my outfit blogging mojo- in fact I've been dying to share outfits with you as I love to- it's just sadly my back has been having other ideas.

My back injuries are like a hand holding the strings. They control my every move. I may by desperate to leap out of bed, get dolled up, cut my tethers and leave the confines of my home to live a normal life- to live, not just exist- but in reality, I can't. The hand pulls me back

 The pain in my spine and lower back from my disc injuries has been constant these last fourteen months; constant seering hot pain I never knew was possible. I have a high pain threshold, but after fourteen months the pain still overwhelms me to the point I often feel like I might pass out. I try to push myself through it, and get about when I can, but the majority of my life is now spent in bed just trying to get through to the next day. Nothing, not painkillers nor exercises, has brought me any relief or improvement as yet. I can do little more than lie on my side and read, surf the net, or blog with shaking hands to keep my mind busy for another day. I've become a slave to painting my nails to brighten up each day, and retain a little piece of normality.

In the last few months the pain has been almost intolerable. I've been unable to get dressed and pose for photos to blog with. The handful of times I have dressed, I've looked too dishevelled with hair scraped back, tired skin, and little energy for posing. I was hoping to change that last week as I had to leave the house for four appointments in five days. Seriously, I had no appointments for two whole months and four come along in the space of five days! I'm sure going to the dentist, hospital, Doctor's surgery, and a medical assessment in the same week is cruel and unusual punishment! Needless to say, I was struggling after the first one, and a right sorry state by the last, so I wasn't able to blog about what I wore.

 I'm still recovering from it all, but I hope I can get back to outfit blogging soon. I'm sorry that it's all a bit sporadic at the moment, but I will continue to post other types of fashion and beauty posts to fill the void in the mean time. If there's something you'd love me to blog about, just let me know.

I hope you can understand, and I just wanted to say thank you for sticking with me through my erratic, unreliable postings!

  1. no need to apologise louise, your health and wellbeing is always a priority. when you do post you always put in 100% effort and i'd rather read fewer posts with loads of effort put in than loads with little interesting content. your blog is consistently wonderful, don't worry about letting us down because you're not, just focus on getting yourself through each day :) xxx
