Last night was the first time in ages I slept all night.

Since I dislocated my hips I’ve been waking up in the night and crying out for Mum because of the pain. But now my doctors have given me strong painkillers to take before I go to bed. Mum gave me a dose last night. It tasted disgusting and almost made me sick. But at least I didn’t wake up in pain, so it must be doing some good.

I’m also waiting for news about my new motorised wheelchair and car seat. I’m not very keen on the idea of having a wheelchair but at least I will be able to move around the house again without having to ask mum for help.

I will post when I have more news.

  1. Hello Hayley, my name is Ophélie and I’m from France. 2 weeks ago, I saw a report about you. In this report, you talked about your disease with so much bravery that I realized there’s no reason for me and for all people healthy to complain about a little hurt. There’s so much more important than that… You and all other people who get this dirt disease are important, the fact of finding new medication to heal you, that is important. I really hope that as soon as possible someone will find a drug able to replace all your drugs against pain and more particulary, THE drug to heal you.
    With all my love
    Ophélie xoxo

  2. Keep up the positive attitude sweetie! You are so inspiring and lovely. Wishing you all the best!

  3. Keep your chin up Haley! I wish i could give you my hips to take away the pain you’re going through!

  4. Hi Hayley!
    It’s good to hear that you can finally sleep through the night. It makes things a little easier, doesn’t it?

    Our whole household of 5 is rooting for you. We have watched your documentary this week and all three of my kids (as well as me and my husband) are very touched by your story. You are a very brave young lady and inspire us immensely. We definitely learned to give more value to the little things in life (and to not complain too much) .

    We wish you all the best and look forward to more positive updates.

  5. Hayley! I’m happy because those pain killers worked! You are in my prayers every single day! I hope everything gets better! You are such an inspirational girl! Keep it that way. Let us know how are you feeling! Regards from Mexico ! 🙂 btw, my best friend and I bought your book in amazon last month. Can’t wait to read it, I hate that I’ll have to wait until April to be shipped! Besos

  6. Hi Hayley, So glad you now are able to have a pain free sleep on a night you will feel much better for that……even worth taking the horrible medicine for. A wheelchair will give you a bit of your independence back, you’ll soon be zooming around, but no wheelies Hayley !!!! Lots of love Chris xxx

  7. I am SO thrilled you have new pain killing medication,sweetheart!! I hope you get your special wheelchair soon,then I can call you”Hot-Rod Hayley”!! XX Love you xx

  8. Hi Hayley, I’m glad you had a better nights sleep, it saddens me to think of you in pain, when ever we see you on the TV or FB you are always so cheery and you have such a beautiful smile. I loved your book some of your mums words made me cry and then some of yours made me laugh, especially when you spoke of your brother & sister. it just reminded me our my kids and how they all get on (or don’t) !! Are you still hoping to do the book signing in March at Waterstones in Hastings? I hope so, I would love to get my book signed. I do hope you get your chair soon so you are more comfortable. Keep smiling Hun xx Julie xx

  10. I wish you the absolute best of everything Hayley. You are one sweet girl living with a very debilitating dîsease and your bravery is something you’re giving the world. Soldiers go to war and deal with pain and suffering but you my darling are living with it daily. Take your wheels when they come and enjoy the freedom. You have earnt it. love much Sandy

  11. Hey Hayley, hopefully you will be out of pain soon, but till then i hope the pain killers continue to do there job. much love to you, you lovely little lady xx

  12. Hi Hayley! My name is Danielle, and I live in America. I saw your story on YouTube and you have inspired me SO much. I am also thirteen and I was so amazed that somebody my age is probably the strongest person ever. You have been through so much in only 13 years. I cannot believe how strong and hopeful you are. You are officially my new role model. <3 I believe in you and I know you will get through this. God is watching over you and is taking care of you. You are amazing and beautiful, don't let anybody tell you different. I am praying for you and I am praying that they will find a cure. God bless you and your family! So glad to know your doing better! 🙂
    Much Love,
    P.S. Do you know where they sell your book in America? Thanks:)

  13. Hi Hayley,
    I saw your movie Hayley the 96 year old school girl on TVO and it inspired me soooooooo much! You are so brave, and I’m doing my speech on you at school. I want other people to hear your amazing story! I also agree about medicine, they should make it taste better! Its hard to believe that i’m only two years younger than you and nothing has happened to me compared to what you have gone through.
    Hope you get better, Love Nicole. <3 🙂 😉
