Hi, my name is Tara. Thank you for visiting my blog page! I hope you find the information interesting!

I was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis when I was three, it is for this reason that I’m trying to focus my attention on promoting awareness of JA. I was told many different things growing up by the different doctors that treated me, and the most common topic seemed to outline more of what I ‘couldn’t’ do rather than what I ‘could’. This mindset lead me to some deep dark places which I never wish to revisit.

I am forever grateful that my mum is such a positive person. She taught me that there is no such thing as can’t, telling me that if at first you don’t succeed, try it a different way. (Which is a good thing, otherwise I’d still have difficulty doing simple things such as brushing my teeth!).

For years I have struggled with pain, even on very bad days I force myself to go to work, (it’s a good thing really, going to work helps take my mind off the pain and allows me to concentrate on something else), however the constant grind of hospitality (as much as I love the industry) possibly isn’t doing me any favours, which is why I decided that starting my own business may be the better way to not only help others with disabilities, but also allow me to work my own hours, and really knuckle down and take control of the arthritis and not let the arthritis continue to control me.

My website is an online directory which (when fully up and running) will allow people with disabilities, their carers and the frail aged, find services which are designed to help them.

I’ll keep you updated on the website’s progress! Thank you for reading 🙂

      Hi, Thank you so much for your kind words and support! I really appreciate it! I apologise for not replying sooner. This disease throws everything it’s got at us sometimes and it can take a few days to put it back in it’s place! Please let me know if there is a topic that you would like covered, I love to think that we can all learn a few tricks to combating this disease together! I hope you have had a great weekend, and thank you again for your message 🙂
