About Angry Old Spoonie


I toyed with the idea of having special benefits for different tiers, but then i decided that i want it to be open and free to anyone and everyone. Not everyone can afford even my lowest tier and i didn't want exclude anyone from my content.  As a result, this Patreon runs along side the blog, Pinterest and my Insta. And if you like the content, you can become a Patron!

Angry Old Spoonie
I’m Vix, and angry Spoonie with 38 years of life under my belt. I have only recently accepted that yes, I am indeed a Spoonie so i started a blog to help me to come to terms with that, and to try and help others along the way.
My current list of Spoon related illnesses are:
  • Cyclothymia
  • COPD
  • Asthma
  • Currently being investigated for Fibromyalgia (this includes, of course, chronic pain)
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Hidradenitis Suppurativa
  • Chronic fatigue
  • RSI
  • Anxiety
  • PTSD
  • OCD
  • ED - mainly binging
  • Weariness of life
I started the blog initially as a way of trying to work through my feelings about no longer being ‘able bodied’, and learning to accept my conditions. Now that has expanded to blogging about trying to lose weight and investigate alternative therapies and treatments. And food, because i LOVE to cook and try new recipes.

My weight has always been an issue for me since around the year 2000 when I gained 3 stone in the space of 30 days thanks to a change of my contraceptive pill. Ever since then i’ve yo-yo’d between a UK size 14 to my current size, 20/22. The added weight means that a lot of my conditions are worse than they have ever been, but trying to exercise when your Fibro is draining away all your energy and motivation is practically a non-starter.

As i gradually become less mobile over time, i've been looking for other ways to create an income, and blogging is something that i can still do.

So WELCOME! And if you have any spare pennies, please consider becoming one of my Patreons.  If not, just sharing a link or two will help more than you know.
