Not Feeling Guilty When Needing To Rest

(Source: Instagram @HelloSunshine) It’s been a struggle for me these last few weeks.

To The Guy That Commented ‘I’ve Always Wanted to Try A Chick in a Wheelchair’

Chronic Illness and Living The Pyjama Life with Yours Clothing

The Ultimate Medical App – Evergreen Life Review

*Disclaimer: This post is sponsored As someone that is very attached to their phone, I have an app for most things; photo editing, banking, bill tracking etc. But I’d never found one for my health that was truly worthwhile.
