I have an app called 'Timehop', which allows me to see past posts and pictures that I have shared over the years on social media. I love it, as it will throw up pictures that I haven't seen in years, often reminding me of a specific time or of particular events that I haven't thought… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Setting New Challenges

But if we were to consider what this actually means, I suppose it is the fact that something massive and potentially life changing can arise through something small and seemingly… Continue reading Avalanches

I really want to blog more regularly and consistently, but to be honest I am finding… Continue reading The Hidden Symptoms of MS
