I am sure a lot of you have been wondering where I’ve been as I haven’t posted on here in ages (with the exception of the Murad post a few days ago) so thought I would just have a little chat with you all and give you a bit of an update…
I have so much to write in this post I don’t really know how to say it so please excuse the babble and lack of pretty pictures.
For the past two months I haven’t been around much on here and I am so sorry about that, I truely am. I just want to start by saying a massive thank you to everyone who has sent messages of concern and support to let me know they’re waiting on posts. I know a lot of you who follow on here also follow my Instagram and it doesn’t look like anything significant was happening because my images look how they always do so I understand it was weird to see me there, but not here!
For the past ten weeks I’ve been sick. Not just like a cough here and a sniffle there. Really ill. I don’t tend to talk about my health much on my feed as its my happy place, an outlet, which is why it is SO important to remember that INSTAGRAM IS NOT REAL LIFE. I think we get so caught up in the ‘perfection’ of Instagram we decide we want that life too, but those images aren’t always a solid reflection of the truth. Anyway that is a different point all together (always going off topic I know).
So my images over the past two months haven’t changed much, the captions are the same and my responses are usual, but if you watched my Instastories you would’ve heard a lovely, stuffy nosed man voice chatting away. Well I got a really bad cold ten weeks ago, which turned into a terrible sinus infection. This in turn messed my ear up and eventually surgery was required on both my nose and ear. You didn’t see that on Instagram because I chose to post a pretty picture of makeup just before my sister had to drive me to the ER. The picture of me in the bath – I wasn’t really in the bath that day, I was in hospital (I did have a bath when I got home though, I just didn’t use the AMAZING masks). While I try keep my feed as true and honest as possible sometimes I just want to post pretty pictures and forget about the realities of life. However, 99% of my images are of what I did that day and I am thinking of changing that to 100% just to stay true to you guys as well as myself.
I am on the road to recovery now, however despite five courses of antibiotics, steroids and surgery I am still sick. While I am not 100% I will be posting every second day. I don’t want to just stop completely because I LOVE you guys! Seriously your comments and messages are just the best and always make me smile. Thank you so much for your support!
Love always, Angie
PS – reading this post back I realise it may not make much sense, but I think it is important to let you guys know whats going on xxx
