My Five Year Plan?

This morning after an early morning trip to the doctors with Tom (and to book an afternoon appointment for myself) I decided to crawl back into bed and watch youtube. My belly hurts, I have no energy and my one cat is sitting looking at me like I am the most pathetic person in the world (but hes grateful of the warmth he is getting from me.)

Anyway, watching Hannah Gales Q+A a question came up about a 5 year plan and it really kind of got me thinking. When we got married I was certain that house and babies would follow pretty soon, but 3 years and a whole host of health problems later and here I am, making good progress towards a house but my health doesnt seem to be changing. 

I am giving my doctor a kind of last chance to help me today, but I feel like I am slowly giving up on the NHS. I have taken out a couple of books from the library about natural ways to fight fibromyalgia and also the food hospital book. One of the things it suggests is giving up aspartame (and I do drink a hell of a lot of diet fizzy drinks). I also need to start keeping a symptom and food diary to see if something is triggering me. 

So basically, where do I see myself in 5 years?

Hopefully sat in a house that we have poured our heart and soul into.

Still happily married.

Healthy and in control of my health issues.

Possibly with a baby or one on the way?

I hope to have seen a few more cities and also taken my dream holiday to Mexico!

Do you guys think about where you will be in the future or do you just take each day as it comes? 


  1. If I've learnt anything from the past 5 years it's that I never imagined I'd be where I am today both good and bad! I have my own house and a job I love, but I have suffered a hell of a lot of loss and trauma over the past two years. I'd love a husband and kids but the clock is beginning to tick. I guess over all I just hope that I'm healthy and happy!

    Loved reading this post. Hope you have a lovely weekend.

  2. It's great to have a plan! Even if you don't know if you'll be successful. Hopefully in the next 5 years, no matter what happens, you have contentment and feel like you've done your absolute best to make your dreams a reality. And most importantly – don't compare yourself to others. I do that all the time and it ends up only depressing me. You are a "unique snowflake" and your life will reflect that. Congrats on getting as far as you have in 3 years! Keep up the good work! :)
