I’ve been thinking about starting this blog for a while and [after spending what felt like hours trying to come up with a blog name that wasn’t already taken] I’m finally here writing the first post.
The kids are keen though I’m wondering if they really know what blogging involves-time will tell.
I have systemic lupus erythematosus and fibromyalgia. A few years ago the medicine I was prescribed began to produce unbearable side effects so I had to stop taking them. My illness became uncontrolled and things got pretty bad so I had to retire. My health was worsening and I could no longer self-care.
Around the same time(ish) we discovered M’s allergies and asthma which added to the eczema that they both have.
On top of these health issues things were made worse by a discriminating school with no regard for safety or accessibility and a dishonest headteacher [can you tell I have residual anger?] so B and I decided to home educate The Kids.
This road has not been easy.
Educating The Kids at school would be an easier and simpler solution- but would it be the RIGHT solution?
We’ve had some great times and we’ve had times when I am stuck in bed (literally!) for weeks. It is a challenging path but anything worth doing is worth doing well, or something like that.
