Leaving you behind…

As I leave the UK to set off on my world tour, I leave behind a letter from neurology stating… ‘Fern has no symptoms to suggest active Myasthenia Gravis’.

Yassssssss. What about that?! What timing! NO suggestion of that rotten disease that has plagued my life for the last 6 years. YAS! NO SYMPTOMS.

Is this a new start? A new chapter? A new lease of life?

The first day of the rest of my life. August 1st 2016.

Whattttttaa feeling!

Something that has been such a huge focal point of my life over the last 6 years. SIX years. Something that has brought me SO much pain and SO many struggles, is being left behind! Well if that’s not the best thing I’ve ever heard, then I don’t know what is.

Given, I’m still on A LOT of medication. But hey, what’s popping a few pills for feeling SO well and SO free.

I’m now off on an adventure. A trip around the world. Toronto, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Fiji, Australia and New Zealand. HA WHAT?! SURREAL. IS THIS MY LIFE? MINE? HA. WOT!

I’m helplessly in love with this adventure already, I have been for years. I’m so so ready, so excited and so in love with my life. Ready to discover, to love, to create, to find, to explore. I’m ready. I got this.

A little scared. But hey, if it scares you, it might be a good thing to try. I’m happy in dirt, I’m happy in glitter, I’m happy anywhere. I’m happy.

I’M OFF ON AN ADVENTURE!!!!!! Better put this glass of champagne down and go catch a plane — catch ya in Toronto!
