February is Raynaud’s Awareness Month. This is one of those topics we will always try our best to spread awareness of this. Raynaud’s disease affects blood circulation which causes painful symptoms. It is a condition that affects 1 in 6 people in the UK.
This is a topic that we will continue to do each year. Our blog is not only about our grief journey. It is a life journey. Since our Dad was hospitalised in September 2016, sadly passing away in March 2017. But also about our lives and our experiences along the way.
We first became aware of this by chance, but once discovered it was something that we wanted to cover as a topic as we believe this to be a condition that wouldn’t necessarily be well known. At the same time. It is a condition that I suffer from.
I was diagnosed many years ago. Thankfully, I do not suffer from it as bad now as I did when I was first diagnosed. However, when the symptoms do appear, it is uncomfortable, and I can not wait until my symptoms fade away and things return back to normal. The symptoms I suffer from will be my hands and feet getting extremely cold and extremely painful. Also, the colour drains from my hands as though there is no blood running through my body. We suffered a very cold period of weather last year (2022). It would be so cold for me that I would have to wear gloves in order to drive as my steering wheel was too cold.
We never hesitate to share matters like this because of our experiences along the way. The things we went through and still continue to are sometimes beyond words. This was one of the main reasons we decided to start this blog and share our journey with others.
A journey that started with our Dad being diagnosed with a life-threatening heart condition that we had never heard of: Infective Endocarditis. We have topics on:
Our Dad was a courageous honourable, kind caring, funny intelligent man
A journey of learning from those we connect with along the way, and those who share with us.
