About Natalie Garton

My name is Natalie, AKA The Spoonie Mummy. I am a 30 something mum of two boys and I have a stepdaughter. I was diagnosed with Arthritis at the age of 15 months, Iritis aged 7 and Crohns Disease at the age of 26 after suffering with bowel issues from the age of 8 or 9. I had a hip replacement aged 23. I started struggling with my mental health in 2015 due to things going on in my personal life and my worsening health problems. My ileostomy was formed in April 2016 and is called Stanley. I blog about my health conditions, life and parenting while chronically ill. Aside from blogging I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, cooking and travelling.
