I have just come across and read the most incredible blog I’ve ever read! It is written by a young woman I shall call J. I didn’t want to reblog her page here without asking if that’s ok with her which I will do if we have any further contact. I have so much admiration and respect for this (hopefully possible) new friend. I have left her my email details in the hope that she will contact me.

She has a very rare, extremely serious and life-limiting condition and from what I’ve read has had to spend most of her time in bed, in pain and much of it in and out of hospices and hospitals She knocks all my problems, worries and difficulties, disabilities etc, into a corner. She is brave, strong, has a wonderful sense of humour and more and I would be honoured to get to know her better.

Often, when I’m struggling with my disabilities and various mental health labels, I think I’ve got it tough and that life has treated me cruelly. But what I suffer is microscopic compared to what J. has to contend with. What she has written is extremely moving and touches my heart to the very core. As I read her words, I felt tears streaming down my face.

I’m not going to write any more today as I am just blown away by this young woman’s courage.

“So, J., if you’re out there and you’re maybe reading this, I hope you don’t mind what I have written and this is for you….

Writing my memoirs, musings, a little fiction and a lot of poetry as a way of exploring and making the most of my life ... ... Having had a break from writing my blog for more than three years, I decided to return to write my memoirs, some day-to-day observations, views and feelings. My passion is non-fiction poetry. I have a disability and use an electric powerchair called Alfie and let nothing get in the way of living life to the full. I believe that you can never do a kindness too soon and should give credit where credit is due. A smile or a kind word could make the difference between a good or bad day for a person - we never know what's going on for another soul. Those little things, perhaps, practised daily like a mantra, could mean so much to someone else. Thank you for visiting my blog and reading a little more about me. Please, make yourself at home here. You are very welcome. Ellie x 😊


  1. What an incredibly sweet thing to write! Thank you, Ellie. You’re very welcome to share my blog, and I appreciate that you wanted to ask first – that was so thoughtful of you.

Hope you’re enjoying the beautiful weather, and feeling contented and peaceful. Sending hugs in your direction!
