About

Hello!! Shwmae! Rhian ydw i.
I decided to create a blog just to talk about my life and discuss and rant about anything I want to.

I’m from Wales, I don’t speak fluent Welsh, I only know a few words.
I’m 29.
I have 2 beautiful children, and you will see on my blog the journeys from when I first found out I was pregnant to now.

I have multiple chronic health conditions and have been through life threatening illnesses, which all affect me seriously. I don’t like to dwell on it, or talk about them that much, I just try to live the best I am able to, and get on with things, easier said than done, as everything is a hurdle.
I always have a smile on my face, and most people don’t know how much physical pain and horrible debilitating symptoms I’m suffering with. I don’t want to appear miserable and moaning all the time, I want to be happy, so I do my hardest at working not to be miserable and be happy. I don’t think people realise to the extent how much agony I’m in, and everything I’ve been and going through.
I won’t go into it all here, it’s all so long and complex.

So my blog is partly about how I live alongside these illnesses and conditions, how I cope, etc.
It’s also about just enjoying life and being happy, living life to the full.
Sometimes I’m housebound or in hospital, but I won’t let it stop me dreaming and doing things i want to do.
I can be quite creative and thought I may as well share some things I’ve made and show others how too.
My blog has a bit of everything!

  1. Hi Rhian,
    My name is Sarah, I’m from Queensland, Australia, I’m 34 and have two boys, Harrison 6 and Hayden 9 months. I came across your site when I was looking for some advice on what other mums with mobility issues do if they need to carry their child around while using a wheelchair or mobility scooter. There was not much on Australian sites at all which is very disappointing because I am sure there are a lot more disabled mums out there with babies than just me 😦

    I was diagnosed with MS (multiple sclerosis) in April 2010 but have gone downhill since then, now I find it a constant painful struggle to walk and keep my balance without the aid of a walker or walking stick or pram, I have just bought a wheelchair but haven’t used it yet out on my own due to the fact that I have no idea how to keep my son on my lap, oh and he’s not exactly light weighing in at 10 kilos ( not sure what that is in pounds)

    What I would like to ask you is do you still keep your babies in a sling when in your wheelchair or do you use something else? I get so depressed cause I feel like I’m so confined and isolated being at home all the time.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    I would like to say too I admire your courage and strength, it is hard enough to be a mum most of the time when you’re not disabled let alone when you are and it makes me smile when I read your blog, the positivity is just wonderful.

    Hope everything is great and you’ve had a great start to 2014!
    Take care
    Sarah
