Exercise After Surgery

I am so proud of myself recently. 2 years ago my muscles were just wastage, they were gone, a combination of falling severely ill with ulcerative colitis, two weeks of barely being able to move or eat, being rushed into a long, invasive surgery, then being bed bound for weeks, contracting sepsis etc., etc. caused...

I still haven't really come to terms with the fact that I'm going to be unwell for the rest of my life. That's such a... Continue Reading →
