Life’s Like That! #Leukaemia #AterialvenousMalformation #GiantCellArteritis #ChronicPain #Isolation #heartbreak

My niece died last Monday night. She had been fighting Leukaemia. One minute she seemed to be okay. The next, on end of life care! And boom! She is dead! It happened so quickly in the end!
I am a coloured pencil artist. When her brother, my nephew died, I drew! I kinda zoned out and was drawing and listening to music. I can’t draw at the moment. I have been diagnosed with bursitis in my right shoulder. I have to rest it or I’ll make it worse!
I want to support my sister, brother in law, my surviving niece, my deceased nieces husband and children! My sisters grandkids! I can’t even support myself!!
I have several disabilities and disorders. They’ve been coming thick and fast since I turned forty! I spend most of my time drawing. I have no friends. They all disappeared when I was diagnosed with bipolar! Fairweathered friends! That’s all they turned out to be in the end! I just feel so alone!
I thought I’d show you some of my artwork. After depressing everyone with my post. I thought I’d put something uplifting on! My niece liked my art. She didn’t say a lot. She was very much like her dad in that respect! 🫶

Stem Cell Donors

It’s 6 years ago today that I had a Bone Marrow Transplant for relapsed AML I was fortunate to have a family member to be my Donor, but too many people are not that lucky! If you can, please consider registering to be a Stem Cell Donor & potentially save someone’s life! Thanks #AnthonyNolan #DKMS #BMT #BoneMarrowTransplant #StemCells #StemCellDonation #Leukaemia #AML #Cancer #AcuteMyeloidLeukemia #savealife

So, here’s to 10 years of fighting each other cancer! GO F**K YOURSELF!🤬🖕🏼🖕🏼🖕🏼 #AML #cancersucks #FuckCancer #Leukaemia #BMT #MentalHealth #Depression #PTSD #Brokenbody #brokenmind
