26th July 2017 Oxygen Therapy #16

The intensive Oxygen therapy course I started on June 20th 2017 is finally finished! 
I attended my last intensive session today & I’m so proud of myself! 16 sessions of oxygen, driving myself there and back, making sure I’m there on time & only missing one session – I got the time wrong! Overcoming not only my anxiety of new places & people – also driving to places I am unfamiliar with – and overcoming the anxiety of being locked in a small metal tank! 
Dang, I did sooooo good! I feel like a new woman just from beating all that anxiety! And that’s before I tell you how the oxygen has helped my MS and my Fibromyalgia! 

Ill talk more about how it has helped me in my next blog!

First I want to thank every single one of you that donated money towards my oxygen mask! 

This really is going to make sitting in the oxygen chamber much more comfortable for me!

Styled in the video below! And for reference, I didn’t do my usual & discombobulate the mask, watch the video, it will make sense! 

The mask is fine! All pieces are there as should be! No mask was harmed in the unscrewing of pipes after my oxygen session today! 🙈
In fact, the mask is better than fine! Its perfect & fits every time I wear it! I know I only collected it today, I have however, tried it on several times! Would you expect any different from me! 😂
As always, questions & comments are welcome!

Wow! Nearly nearly nearly done it! 

Number 15 of 16 intensive oxygen therapy sessions was today! I’ve so got this! Quite look forward to it now if I’m honest! I think its the ‘me’ time I look forward to, and it’s lovely to be able to get out and see different like minded people!

I had a chat with one of the ladies who is there having oxygen therapy for cancer. She is absolutely incredible! Totally inspiring! Infact, she was talking to me today, about how she has changed her diet to help her feel better! 
I explained to her that I had just bought a book, called ‘The Wahls Protocol’ all about how changing your diet can help MS symptoms! 

This is my next book to read! And I finished my current book today, so what good timing was that! 👏
When I go for my session tomorrow, I shall be purchasing my new mask! 

Thanks to everyone who very generously donated to my ‘Go fund me’ page. Not only am I able to buy my own mask, I will also donate the reminding money to Mercia MS Therapy Centre, the fundraising manager has said that for every £45 raised I can have one treatment, whether it be for Oxygen Therapy or any from below…
Well done to Kerrie-Ann today for getting fitting of my mask perfect today! Gold star! ⭐

Love yourself, all of yourself! 

If someone loves you for ALL that you are, why shouldn’t you love ALL of yourself! 

We are made to believe that we should all look and behave a certain way, to be accepted in society. 

I have never been one to follow the crowd, or to be put in a box.

Yet for so many years, since the very young age of around 10 or 11 (when I started developing my extra parts that define me as a lady, my #babylons and child bearing #hips 😉👙) I was always made to feel like I was fat, my shoulders were too broad, my hips too wide & my #booty too big! 

It was children the same age as me that went to the same school, they were the ones doing the name calling! 

It has taken me until the age of 36 to realise how I have, for so many years, spoken to my body in such a cruel way! I have spoken to her the same as all the children that called me fat at school! How sad is that! 

– 

My body has for those 36 years treated me, with nothing but care and dignity! She’s showed up for me every time I’ve needed her, despite how badly I may have treated her at times! She’s always been there, curves and all! 

– 

They’re amazing thing these bodies of ours! Lets start treating them better! Stop speaking badly of yours next time you look in the mirror. Speak to her how you would to your most beautiful friend! 

💚🙏💚

I’m so happy! I’ve just been for my 14th session in my intensive oxygen therapy.
Whilst I was at the centre, I spoke to Mandy the fundraising manager, about raising funds for my oxygen mask. I explained that, because I had already raised enough money for my oxygen mask, I wanted to donate the rest to the therapy centre.
Mandy explained to me that for every £45 that I raise (over the cost of my mask) I could have one oxygen treatment or any other that they offer there!
So, if people keep donating for this amazing cause, you will also be helping me to continue having treatment!

Thank you again, keep sharing this & lets see how much we can raise!

Another day with a body full of pure oxygen! 

Its such a lovely and novel feeling when the ‘Cog-Fog’ part of my MS fatigue lifts! I really hope that I get this same benefit, when I start my Oxygen Therapy once a week. 


Amanda who hasn’t long finished her intensive course, now comes once a week to help her MS symptoms. She wasn’t there last Wednesday & when I asked if she was finding the treatment beneficial, she said that she definitely was & really noticed the difference when she missed last weeks session. 


I’m keeping everything crossed that I’ll benefit from just once a week as well! Time will tell as I only have one session left this week & two next week. Then I plan on returning once a week! 


17th July 2017 #12 Oxygen Therapy

Really getting the hang of this now & loving the ‘me time’ it gives me being in the chamber! Remembering to reflect on selflove and doing things for me! This is definitely one of those things! 

I managed to meditate again today! Meditation helps me so much, at the moment the guided meditation I am using is a recording that my health coach did for me. I’m working hard on staying true to my authentic self and its paying off! 
As always, if you have any questions I’ll be happy to answer them!

Are you thinking of trying Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Ha! Session number ten! Can I see the light at the end of the tunnel?… No! 😜

Every session feels like it should be number 16! 🙈

Don’t get me wrong, I truly am grateful to be doing this but its hard!

Word of advise, if this is something you are going to do, as some one to take you back and forth! 
It was just me & the new lady from yesterday. Wow, what an inspiration she is! Breast cancer and then earlier on in the year, they found bone cancer as well! 

She can’t have an operation for it, as it would be too dangerous, so she is managing it for now, with Ayurvedic medicineAlso called Ayurveda, this is one of the world’s oldest medical systems. It originated in India more than 3,000 years ago and remains one of the country’s traditional health care systems.

She also did alot of research into diet, and is finding the change in this beneficial. 

The hyperbaric oxygen therapy is helping to heal, and has also given her more energy with only one session! 
I managed to medidtate as well today which was brilliant! I doubt I’ll be able to do that in the chamber tomorrow as its really busy in Thursdays!
