Now I don’t usually write mega personal blogs so bare with me here……

For years I have felt rubbish, truly rubbish. My health has always been a bit hazy like the feeling in my head. I seem to suffer from so many health issues (niggly ones, not major ones) that I havent had a day where I can genuinely say I feel good.

My head always hurts. This is probably a result of a) too much caffeine, b) dodgy sinuses c) not eating enough and d) I never, ever


I love

    OMG! I would have never known in a million years that you’d been going through all these health issues. Of course it’s impossible to tell because we only know each other ‘online’. However, you seem to be a ‘whirlwind’ of energy! You’ve done such an incredible job writing for your blog, running your business and bringing up children too! 🙂

    But FIVE cans of coke a day??? For TWENTY years??! Good grief. There should be a health warning on those things! No wonder you were feeling horrible. 🙁

    Anyway, I’m SO PLEASED to hear that you’re on the mend Kate. It’s amazing how quickly you’ve felt the benefits of the ‘no coke’ diet – it already looks like you’re set to achieve great things this year! Whoo hoo!

    If I was there I’d give you a great big hug! Here’s a big online one instead! (((hug))). Congratulations on all your achievements so far and wishing you many, many more this coming year! L oxoxoxo

    You poor thing! I am so glad you are starting to feel improvements. I’m almost 35 and have basically been addicted to diet coke since a teen, I can’t begin to explain how relevant this post is to me!

    This weel my root filling came out (not very glam!) sitting in the dentist chair the first thing he said to me when he looked at my teeth was how often I drink fizzy drinks. I explained I drink diet coke every day ( a pint of it with my breakfast isn’t unusual and if I take s drink to bed with me invade I’m thirsty on the night I don’t take water I take diet coke!) so my dentist was horrified and when on to tell me how bad the stuff is for your teeth . Yes even the diet stuff.y teeth look fan but I have more than my fair share of fillings and it’s very highly likely that’s down to the amount of diet coke I’ve been drinking!

    All my plans for this week got thrown out of the window due to this tooth drama and I’ve still got to go back next month for another filling! I haven’t had any diet coke since. Yes I’m missing it but knowing what I’ve done to my teeth (and who knows what else?!) horrifies me! X

      Your poor thing too….i would love one now as Im shattered with the kids etc..but NO! Im lucky my teeth are good but thats due to great genes really. The shock was the impact on my calcium levels and even folic acid levels. Dont go back…Im drinking so much water now, when I come off the drugs Im sure my skin will be better off for it too xx

      Kind Regards,
