Healing + Wanderlust

 

Hiiiiiiiii guys!! It feels like so long since i wrote a blog post! So i thought i’d take this opportunity to give you an update.

As most of you will know, unfortunately i had an accident during circus practice four and a half weeks ago… doing acrobalance with my partner, i fell out of a balance, landing on my neck. The result was me breaking 5 of my vertebrae, but no spinal cord damage amazingly, thank god! I definitely have my little nan looking out for me! I feel a lot better this last week or so so i thought i would let you all know how i’m healing!

Firstly, thank you to everyone who emailed me with well wishes, it warms my heart that i have such amazing readers!! It was really nice logging into my emails and finding them off you guys! You’re all amazing.

Secondly, the back… so last i told you guys i was put in a back brace (I’ll attach a photo… It makes my boobs look HUGE) and was told it would be on every day for 3 months. I have to have x rays every two weeks, and during last weeks x rays they told me i could actually sit out of the brace for an hour or two a day as long as i’m not in any pain whilst sitting. I still have to wear the brace for the most part, and for walking around and standing up it must be on, but this is great news as i think that i might potentially be out of the brace a lot earlier than originally imagined!!

  

I just want to get my life back.

In the meant time, i’m still off work, coming into my fifth week off, and i’ve watched all the TV i can handle for now. And now my mind is wandering…

I would LOVE to go travelling. I’ve always wanted to work on cruise ships and travel the world at the same time, performing. However, my accident really has given me a new outlook on life.

You never know what will happen, and when  i was lying on the spinal board in accident and emergency, not knowing just how bad things were, if i would be able to walk again, if i was going to need surgery, if my life would change… i thought to myself. I have nothing to show for my life. If this changes my entire life, and stops me from doing things i love, i’ve got nothing to show for my 24 years on this planet.

This has been playing on my mind a lot this last week, especially today, and so i’ve actually started to look into maybe going travelling. Buying a round the world ticket with STA and upping sticks and leaving. I already have some savings, and i am saving a lot of money with being unable to go out and doing all my usual classes and activities, so why not.

Have any of you been travelling? Do you have any places for me to add to my list of destinations? If so let me know!!

This is still very early days, and my life could completely change and i might change my mind but… this could also be very exciting! Boobs on tour haha!!

I’ll be back to normal boob posts soon, i have some exciting things lined up, including someone else’s boob job journey, which is a very exciting step for the blog!! As always, you guys rock. Love you all, no seriously i do.

    Yikes!!!! Sorry to hear about your accident, but glad to hear you are doing well! As far as traveling, you should definitely go. I will be going to Scotland, Ireland, and France this coming June, but, if I could take a dream trip right now, it would be to Dubai for Singapore. 🙂

        Well, I say definitely add Whistler, BC to your list to do in the summer (never been in the winter so I can’t comment on that). It is beautiful! One of the best little places I have ever been to. 🙂
