So as some of you may know I am Alison S (Creator of Disability Roadmap)

Today I would look to talk about Winter blues and the impact the lack of daylight has on anyone with long term health conditions

The additional fatigue zaps you however healthy your diet and routine is.

For me I spend more time in my flat (sorry but I hate the word - housebound so negative) to avoid bugs.

I jump from one virus or infection to the next from October to March each year.

Trying to remain positive and managing the little things that make me laughing when my pain levels are worse is a tough slog.

A fruit smoothie a day gives me some immunity boost - plus regular vitamin D supplements.

I am also partial to a daily red bull drink (value version) in an attempt for mental alertness and feel more human and less zombie.

Sitting at my desk now talking to you I have two SAD daylight lamps and the living room lights on #NeedASunshineMiracle.

So friends how are you doing this winter (hugs) try and keep snug and happy and if you would like to share any positive articles or coping methods on this website.

Hope to hear from you all soon.
