Ok, so that sounds very dramatic. But technically its true


I have recently been diagnosed with Celiacs, and I am currently living in London. Obviously with the rents and the nightmare housing issues here. I  have been crashing at my friends for 5 months. Starting to feel a bit like I cant repair myself because i dont have my own space, room, privacy, i sleep in the living room so my sleep is very much dictated on everyone elses plans. I think this may be just a rant, but |I apologise. You forget how not having your own space is fucking exhausting on top of the celiacs exhaustion!


Sorry needed to burn it out

I feel you shared housing and this disease was a nightmare, if you lived close in the USA I would offer you the couch so you could live in a safe place and get back up on your feet. PS there is a option so start your own blog page on this in your profile I find ranting and reporting on my daily life there can be great for blowing stuff off.

No need to apologize!  I just got back from visiting my SIL for 2 weeks. I slept based on other ppl's schedule and was terrified by their kitchen which had bread crumbs everywhere!  I can't imagine doing it for 5months. I hope you find a place soon!
