**Blog Anniversary Candy**

**Candy Now Closed!**

Hi everyone!

It's now been a whole year since I started blogging! And to celebrate I've put together some goodies for one of my lovely followers to win!

Blogging really has been one of the best things I've ever done! It gives me so much happiness and is helping me through a very tough time in my life! 

I've now spent the last 3 and a half years severely ill with ME, bedridden, in a dark quiet room, unable to tolerate any light, sound or movement. I'm too ill for any visitors, not even my family! The curtains are always closed I just have a dim lamp and wear sunglasses and my family have to be really quiet in the house.

I spend most of the day resting or sleeping with severe exhaustion, and have 3 short periods after each liquidised meal where I do a little bit of crafting which I super love!

I have a constant red hot painful head and low grade migraine and always have a small bag of frozen peas on my head at all times! Mum brings a fresh one every hour (bless her heart!) 
I feel completely awful 24/7! Weak lifeless painful muscles joints and limbs. Dizzy, nausea oh you name it i have it! Lol! 

Everyday day is a real struggle for me, and it's very lonely spending so many years just with just the same 4 walls to look at! 
I can't walk or move at ease, I only leave my bed to get to the toilet, with shaking weak legs, feeling dizzy spaced out, sick, clinging onto walls and sideboards to try and get there, (and it's right outside my room!)  and when I get back I feel half dead! Lol

So crafting and blogging really help me to stay positive and happy and focus on that, not how limited my life is or how awful I'm feeling! 

I'm always so touched by all of your kind comments! You make me smile every comment I read and I'm so so grateful to you all!

Anyone still awake?? Lol!
