About Me

Hi! Welcome to my blog! My name is Kindra and my life is currently dominated by Chronic Daily Migraine, to the extent that I rarely leave the house. ‘Chronic Pain Cockney – The Little Things’ is devoted to the things I love that make me happy and have nothing much to do with pain & medications! So expect make-up, nail polish, skin care, accessories and other random lovely things.

Update July 2016: An MRI in January showed that I have a Chiari Malformation. Having met with a Neurosurgeon, had further scans etc, I’m awaiting a date to go into hospital to have a hole drilled in my skull and see what’s going on in there! I’m still posting beauty blogger type content once or twice a week and have a little ‘Chronic Life’ series going as well, which can be easily ignored if you’re mainly stopping by for product reviews 😊

Update September 2016 – so it turns out that I also have raised pressure inside my skull. I’ll be visiting hospital more than usual in the coming months & facing brain surgery some time soon. I make sure to blog on the fun beauty stuff every Sunday plus additional posts on the Chronic Life stuff when I’m up to it. I’m hoping that one day I’ll be well enough to indulge in several posts a week!

Update October 2019 – It’s been an age since I’ve posted. My condition has worsened significantly over the years; adjusting to life as a disabled person hasn’t been easy but I’m keeping my blog up so that I have a place to write about it all. My powerchair has just been delivered, so more adjustments and new adventures to come!

    1. Thanks Hun 🙂
      I’ve had a few of these nominations lately & they’re really nice but I’m in a bad way with the pain lately, am barely managing to keep my usual posts going. I’m doing 2/3 posts in whatever good hrs I get then scheduling them, cos it can be ages before I’m well enough to write the next lot. If I get any kind of good patch in the foreseeable I’ll get working on nomination pieces. Hope you are well x


      1. I’m sorry to hear you’re going through it worse than normal recently. I only get normal migraines, I haven’t had humdingers for many years…I cannot imagine what you’re going through. I hate migraines. Gia gets them too, poor kid.
        I don’t think the blog police will care if you write up about any awards, I just wanted you to know that you bring a little sunshine into my life :).

      2. Thanks Hun 💜 That sucks that Gia gets them 😔 They used to scare the life out of me when I was her age. Poor girl.
        When migraines were chronic it was bad, but they’ve been daily for last two years, that’s where it got nightmarish. So few functional hours in my week & none pain free 😡 Working on it though xx


  1. Hello!
    I have to say that I like your blog.
    Also I appreciate the finding of a blogger with simillar problems, that has a possitive outlook on life. (I don’t have migraines, but I have daily headaches and after 12 years no one knows what’s causing them.)
    Keep up the jolly spirit and Happy New Year!

    1. Hi Annie! Thanks very much 🙂
      Holding on to hope isn’t easy with daily pain as you know but I enjoy my blog, it cheers me up. Thanks for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it. Happy new year!


  2. Hi Lovely lady, I too suffer from more than 1 auto immune disorders that fill me with chronic pain each day. Thank you for providing those pretty little things that I can obsess over instead of my pain. Pain Isolates and that itself is painful. I wish you love peace and all the lipstick you could ever want! your fellow lip junkie

    1. Hi there! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment 🙂 My love of makeup is a part of me that the pain can’t take away. The isolation is a such a big issue for us. It’s so nice to find people online who understand. Wishing you as many ‘low pain’ days as possible x
