It’s my final post of 2018... I’d like to thank everyone for supporting me and following my life with Pulmonary Hypertension over the year.
As we come to the end of 2018, I’ve been reflecting on my year and it hasn’t been a very good one for us. I’m glad to see the end of it to be honest. It’s definitely had its ups and downs and where as PH has never stopped me from doing a lot of things in life, I believe this year has shown what it can stop me from doing and it’s been bloody difficult and frustrating. Mentally I've struggled due to personal PH reasons and when you get yourself feeling low which I did at the beginning of the year, it's hard to get out of it. Living with PH is such a struggle at times and even though I share a lot on social media, there are things that I don't show and mention and behind closed doors things have been different this year. I am very lucky the Brompton have supported me so, so much and helped me to turn to people who can help me and it thanks to them, my Mum and Terry that I have come this far.
This year has also been difficult as I’ve lost people close to me, some due to PH, but they will always be remembered. It makes me even more determined and hopeful for a cure one day.
There has been some great times intermingled, such as, Selexipag is now approved in the UK, we’ve had days out with with our close friends and my PH Twinnie and Terry and I attended a conference in Italy to speak about living with PH. Terry is very excited to start his new job next year too! Plus I’ve always got my Mum and Terry (and Izzy) by my side.
I will always be thankful to my Mum and Terry for their unconditional love and support through the dark times this year and the Royal Brompton Hospital have got me through another year yet again. Anyway I will remain positive and I hope 2019 will be a better year for us. Onwards and upwards into a new year!
Please continue to follow all my social media, Facebook, Twitter & Instagram as I will continue to raise awareness for PH next year and subscribe to my YouTube channel as my PH videos will resume again next month.I hope 2018 has been a good one for you and 2019 will be even better. A huge thank you to all of you once again and I will see you again in 2019! Enjoy your NYE whether it’s a quiet cosy one or you’re out with friends and family! We're out celebrating with our friends tonight!
Thanks for reading! 💜
