My name is Natalie and I blog at thespooniemummy.com.  I write about life and parenting with chronic illnesses.  I have been chronically ill since being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis aged 15 months.  I also have crohn’s disease, an ileostomy, iritis, ostopenia, chronic anemia, anxiety, high blood pressure and had a hip replacement aged 23.  I am a very positive person despite this and try and support others with chronic illnesses by being someone to talk to as well as sharing information and advice.  I like to share things I have learnt on my parenting journey and the knowledge I have gained from studying for my NVQ3 in Childhood and Education as well as 9 years experience of being a nursery nurse.  Being a chronically ill parent gives me a different view on parenting which I think  can be interesting and useful to parents in the same situation.
