Hello all!
Thought I'd use this first post to introduce myself and give you the run-down of how things are so once i get down to the more hardcore ranting (i have a few causes for that in my life haha) you'll get what I'm banging on about....

I'm 28yrs old and I live alone with my two ferrets, Pedro and Jasper in Bakewell, Derbys. I'm coming to the end of my Level 3 Diploma in Hairdressing and have already applied to study a Fdn Degree in Hairdressing/Salon Management next year with University of Derby (Buxton Campus). I work part time at The Wheatsheaf in Bakewell while I study, however everything is about to get a little more complicated.

Last week I recieved confirmation of a diagnosis of ME (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and Fibromyalgia from my doctor. I had been suspecting something was wrong for quite some time. Thinking back now i can see that i have exhibited symptoms of Fibro since being really quite young. Migraines, sensitivity to bright lights/noises, needing to sleep during the day etc.... But the CFS has crept up on me quite suddenly over the last 18mths following a SEVERE bout of tonsilitis which had me bedridden for a month. Ever since then the symptoms have been totting up... swollen glands, fatigue, aches, poor temperature control, the need to sleep ALL THE TIME, and the shooting pain when i have been at work for too long (usually 3hrs or more).

So I'm using my time holed up in bed to rest to write this blog (and play a LOT of Farmville lol). I love all things hair, beauty and fashion so expect my rants to be punctuated with lots of stuff I'm loving at the moment. Whenever i find a new hair product I'll let you know what I think of it and if there's one you'd like to know about or think i should try please let me know and I'll give it a whirl. Similarly if you want advice on styling and current hair trends, I am always on the ball so feel free to pick my brain on anything you like. Life-permitting I will get back to you ASAP.

So that's the introductions out of the way. I hope that most of you will find what i have to say in this blog to be thought provoking, yet entertaining. Hope you will stick with me as i learn.

Look forward to hearing from everyone **HUGS**
