Welcome to

I am a writer, mum and positivity guru. Positivity runs my life and bringing it on board changed the direction of my life. Adversity, challenge and pain led me to a place of darkness and fear. Within hours of the birth of my son my body inexplicably began to fail me. Over days, weeks and months symptoms grew, changed and literally brought me to my knees- diagnosed weeks before his first birthday with Multiple Sclerosis. I could have stayed there, lived in fear of my future and allowed the medical world and medicine to determine my future. I could have started life as a new mum as a sick person in need of support. I could have watched others care for my newborn son as I accepted my limitations. I could have accepted the negativity that tried to strangle our new family life. I could have stopped believing in my dreams, aspirations and future. But I didn’t. I found new ways to do old things. I turned negatives in to positives. I saw the good in what I still had. I found new things I could do and achieve. I took the decision that I would determine my own future- with positivity leading the way- no matter what would happen

  • Born Together shares the fascinating story of how motherhood and adversity entered my life together. No matter what was thrown my way I always found a way to manage and overcome with positivity.
  • I hope to inspire people to live a full and positive life, despite adversity and ill-health.
  • I hope to offer practical support through the Life jigsaw and show people that anything is possible with the right attitude & absolute, resolute, unrelenting determination

Thank you, Patricia, for giving me the true definition of hope.
