This is me…
I am a lawyer and I run a small law firm with Sarah (S). I have a three year old daughter (“H”), who is a beautiful, happy ray of light. She makes my life worthwhile and fills it with moments of amazement and laughter. H is exhausting but wonderful.
I would say I have a pretty busy life but doesn’t everyone? Every working Mother runs a daily treadmill of getting up, dressed and out, putting everyone first, leaving the house without makeup, without tights. The slight difference with my life is that I have Cystic Fibrosis. In some ways this has no effect on my life but in others it impacts every minute. I also have rheumatoid arthritis and experience intermittent symptoms. I can go to bed perfectly fine and wake up the next day unable to move without experiencing incredible pain.
I keep everything together with the help of my wonderfully supportive (most of the time) husband (“Hubby”), the CF Team at St James Hospital in Leeds and Barbra Streisand!
For the last year I have kept a diary. These are my findings.
