Rural Teacake is where we share the ups and downs of  life with complex medical conditions while living in the remotest village in England.

Rural life can be a challenge to anyone  but when your body can’t hold itself together and your wheelchair gets stuck in the mud (a lot), it can be quite an adventure.

She has complex medical conditions including Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), Gastroparesis/Intestinal Failure, Dysautonomia/POTS and Mast Cell Activation Disorder (MCAD). When she isn’t being prodded and poked at hospital she can be found hoarding stationary and not tidying up. Likes – Animal Crossing, novelty stationary and smiling. Dislikes – Losing things, smelly food and socks.

    1. Hi Michelle,
      It’s great to hear from a fellow disabled blogger. While Kielder is certainly not the best place for accessibility, it is beautiful. I’ll be starting my newsletter soon so thanks for signing up. I’m heading over to your blog now for a peek. Carrie x
