Hi and welcome to Clem Loves, a Faith, Wellness & Lifestyle blog.
My name is Clementine, but everyone calls me Clem! I’m a Christian, I’m 31, and I’m a full-time blogger, content creator, and writer from a small town in Lincolnshire.
Sharing my journey of faith as a Christian, I also explore the challenges of living with a chronic illness, offering from personal experience, my own tips and advice to inspire, encourage and equip. My aim is to help bring positivity and happiness in whichever season you are currently in, whilst sharing the Good News of the Gospel and God’s truth.
For most of my life I have lived with a chronic illness. At the age of 8 I was diagnosed with Asthma. When I was 19 I was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis, which is also known as Painful Bladder Syndrome. Whilst under anesthetic and having a procedure on my bladder, the anesthetist found that something wasn’t quite right with my heart, which led to a diagnosis of Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome. After two operations on my heart when I was 19, the Wolff Parkinson White syndrome was thankfully gone. Shortly after, I was diagnosed with PoTS Syndrome (Postural Tachycardia Syndrome) and Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia. In November 2017, after many years of symptoms and struggling with my stomach, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease.
My faith is so important to me. Through God’s amazing peace and strength, His help, protection, and comfort during those tough times, my faith has helped me so much throughout all areas of my life, especially living with a chronic illness, anxiety, and OCD.
“God’s strength helps me to carry on when I feel like giving up and I can’t go on, it helps me to move forward when all I’m doing is looking into the past, it helps me to face my fears, to let go of the things that are worrying me and causing me anxiety, and God’s strength gives me hope and keeps me going. Through the tough and difficult times, through the brokenness and the pain, and through the disappointment, rejection, and heartbreak, God’s strength has helped me and continues to help me.” Clementine Rose – Finding Strength During A Difficult Season.
