Living with a chronic illness for over 8 years has made me more aware of the need to find the good things in life when it’s not so obvious and I share all I find on this blog as well as tips on how I keep positive and motivated.
I’ll post as often as my health permits, so if you’d like to keep up-to-date and share in all the good things you can sign up to receive all new posts by email.
Who am I?
I’m Jenny Barber. In my previous life, before chronic illness hit, I was a graduate and worked as a mental health support worker. I was a non-stop exercise addict and a die-hard on the dance floor.
Now I’m a wife to an entertaining teacher who takes working full time and looking after a wife and 3 kids in his stride.
I’m a mum to two fun-loving, mum-loving, cheeky boys and one independent, adorable toddler girl.
I’ve lived with ME/CFS/SEID for over 8 years but aside from being a completely different person and pretty much house and couch bound, it doesn’t define me or our family.
I’ve been blogging for a few years and found a passion in it. I love the new friends I make through it and being able to share my thoughts with you. Rather than be caught up in the struggles I find blogging a great way to capture all the good things of life.
