On the eve of my sons 5th birthday, I went to emergency with severe swelling of the tongue and mouth. I was tired but I cannot recall any other indications I had any health issue. I was a healthy 35 year infact I was really fit.
The kids were all tucked up into bed and my husband stayed home with them while I walked myself into an ambulance at the front door of our house. The medic was asking, “Are you my patient?’” You see I looked perfectly ok until I opened my mouth and a tongue the size of a lacrosse ball appeared – boom, wow, sit down, oxygen came out and all emergency systems for ‘life’ were attached to me and off to emergency we went.
I was not really talking well, and I was drooling and it wasn’t because the most handsome man in all of Melbourne was ‘saving’ me, my medic. Cringe, how embarrassing. I just had severe and rapid swelling of the tongue, mouth, and neck – anaphylaxis. I don’t know what made me sick.

I have suffered sleeplessness, depression, severe allergies, chronic fatigue, chronic baby time tiredness, relationship separation at times in my journey and every time the only way through has been to TRY to take in good food, good sleep, good PEOPLE (really important) and a meaningful most wonderous job. Training, coaching and helping others. But I can hands down guarantee moving through all these above said human experiences have been made easier with great fitness, and health. When I have not really known what to do with myself I’ll take myself for a workout. Feeling good about the workout makes you feel good about your self, then if you look good, you feel good and around it goes learn more
