Sorry for being awol, alot has happened.

Firstly let me say a huge sorry to you all and to my blog for not being here as often has I would of liked. Ive had one heck of a huge month, some good and some not so good :(
Let me share my exciting news first though, My very first publication is now out in SBM Vol 12,No 3. Absolutely over the moon atm, its my first one with this magazine and am happy to say I have a few more coming soon :D BTW sorry about the photo, its a little dodgy, but ya get the idea.

So lets begin the month that was...At the end of Febuary I went to my doctor complaining of chest pains. Ive been experiencing this since I was 15 years old, have always complained about it, but its only been now that someone has actually taken me seriously. Anyhoos, she wanted me to do a ECG and take my bloods, turns out my heart was beating too slow and she has found that my Serum Creatine Kenase levels are too high in my blood. These results were not what we were expecting at all, to be honest I thought they would just send me home like every other doctor has done. But she decided to send me to the heart specialist for a heart ultrasound and an eco test. After the test the specialist said that my heart is too big, the left side of my heart is enlarged and also there is something else showing up in the ultrasound that they cant really explain just yet. So Now on wenesday (my birthday) I am heading back to the specialist to get a heart monitor brace to wear for 24 hours, then I will go back to my doctor and then go off to the cardiologist to see what the next step will be. So thats the general gist of what kind of drama is unfolding in our lives atm. At the start I was very upsett and scared by it all, but then I realised I cant think the worse or get too upsett by it, because I myself dont fully understand what it is, so Until I know for sure I will just keep living my life the way I have been and try and be happy. Being unhappy gets me no where and just puts everyone else down around me. But thankyou to everyone, you know who you are for showing me your full support and being there for me when I needed you. My fiance has been my absolutel rock through all this, he knows exactly what to say and do to cheer me up, he also sent me off to My beautiful bestie/sis in law's house. So on the 6th of March we met up with alyssa and the boys at tottenham for a wedding then spent 10 glorious days with her, my bro and my 2 gorgeous nephews. Miss yas already!!!! Thankyou for such a wonderful holiday :D I have plenty of pics to show you, but I do think this post is way too long as it is. So if You've made it this far, you have done well ;)
