Introducing Wilma

Introducing Wilma

Good morning all. I would like to introduce you to Wilma, my new addition to our family since our sad loss, Mildred. Wilma is full of life and has a super character. Wilma is a great companion.

I would also like to update you on my life's progress since my early retirement from teaching as a result of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue impacting on my every moves. I am pleased to announce that have now completed my counselling trainee after five long years, and feel blessed to be working for a local charity run counselling establishment. I am also a volunteer mentor, working with young people.

I am now able to work at home as a counsellor, I have a keen interest to work with clients suffering from the impact fibromyalgia chronic fatigue and ME. It is great to know that I can work the hours that suits me, and rest as and when I need too.

I am all to aware how important self care is these days and the need to pace myself.

Lastly I would like to wish you all a positive, pain fee day.

Thank you for your continued support

  • How do you like that breed? Really cute. If ever I need a companion in the future, i would like a smaller breed.

  • Congratulations on the degree as well. I am home feeling sad that i dont think I can work full time with my pain and problems, yet dont know what to do with myself.

  • Hello to you. Thank you, West highand terriers generally adjust to your way of life, I have found that they know instinctively when you are feeling really poorly. My last girl, was so patient and waited until I could take her out. I have also found that they will sit by my side if I am poorly all day every day! It can be frustrating work brain still needed stimulation as my body no longer functioned too well. I had a long physical career as a hairdresser and lecturer, and it was so hard to stop working with my creative passion i have for hairstyling. My aim now is to help and support others.... Believe xxx

  • Love the picture of Wilma and also the name. A close friend has one called Jack he is 14 now and a real character he loves a massage. He is as lively as you want him to be will walk long distances but just as happy to have a cuddle. I love him when he has been to what I call the "parlour" his coat is then Ice white in contrast to his black eyes.

    Wonderful news about you completing the Counselling I am sure you are a great asset to the charity. It is an inspiring story.x

  • Hello to you. Thank you for your lovely comments. Wilma has had her first experience at the groomers she looked and smelt lovely........such a shame she prefers to smell of foxes ??? I hope you have a good day. xxx
