Okay I figured the best way for me to kick this new blog off is tell you about myself.

This is me …


Alright it’s me on an extremely good and seemingly skinny day 🙂 This is actually me …


I am a thirty one year old, highly sarcastic, perpetually cynical mother of a two year old with a flare for the creative/dramatic. I love my family and I have an obsession with Once Upon a Time the tv series (Captain Hook is my favourite 😉 .) I would do anything for anyone and quite regularly do, regardless of effect on me…

Oh, did I mention I have psoriatic arthritis?

See how easy that was? I will not let this disease define me. I very rarely show what I feel on my face for crying out loud and I’m in pain every day 🙂 It effects my ability to play with my child but will never effect my cheerfulness. I’m Andrea, that PSA lady 🙂

I was diagnosed at twenty four. I took it in my stride but unfortunately I was in a relationship at the time where he didn’t understand and didn’t feel the need to. Fear not, I have my soul mate now who goes out of his way to help me 🙂

Basically, I’m human. Come talk to me 🙂

Thank you 🙂

Hello :)

Hello everyone 🙂 thank you for stopping by and looking at my blog. I decided to start this as a chronic illness sufferer. I have been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis eight years ago and I quickly learnt that not a lot of people understand when you have such a condition. I don’t want sympathy. I want to educate so that we are more relateable; that we may have an invisible illness but don’t belittle us, accept us for what we are 🙂

There will be humour, laughs, tears, happiness but always cheerful in itself 🙂

Thank you 🙂
