I spoke to Mark who has been waiting two years for surgery to repair his hernias that make him look pregnant. His condition has not been classed as an emergency yet he’s been close to DEATH more than once. Read his story in the Sun #sellmystory A dad-of-six has been left fighting for his life while waiting for surgery to repair his hernias, which not only make him look pregnant but give him contractions. Mark Webb, 39, who sports a large bump under his t-shirt claims it’s no surprise people think of him as ‘pregnant’. But the reality is no laughing matter. The dad from Bodmin, Cornwall, told The Sun: “People call me pregnant and it’s clear to see why - I look like I’m carrying a baby under m
Here's Lysa's story in That's Life magazine, after her story appeared in the Daily Mail. She was so desperate for a girl that she kept on trying until she got one - six kids later! #sellmystory --- Walking through the shop, I gazed at the cute, frilly baby dresses on their tiny hangers and drew my hand to my bump instinctively. ‘I hope it’s a girl,’ I said. ‘Why?’ my partner Mark asked. ‘So we have one of each,’ I said. I liked the thought of our three-year-old son Rhys having a sister and so did my mum Sonia. She was battling breast cancer and was worried she wouldn’t get to meet her new grandchild. ‘If it’s a girl, can you call her Riyah?’ she said. ‘Of course,’ I said. When I was seven mo
I loved writing Monica's story - she made two wishes for a baby in the Trevi Fountain and got TWINS after a holiday fling! Here's her story in Take a Break magazine #sellmystory --- I lay on the bed while being scanned and turned to my friend Anita, who gave me a reassuring look. Then the doctor said: ‘You have very few follicles.’ ‘What does that mean?’ I said. ‘I’m afraid you have little chance of conceiving,’ he said. I nodded as I took in the news. It only confirmed what I’d already guessed. I was 40 and over the hill. I’d split up with men in the past because they hadn’t wanted children but when I’d met my ex, I thought my luck had changed. I made it clear from the beginning that I’d wa
I spoke to lovely couple Tam and Orla who defied the odds to fall in love! When Tam had a car accident his whole memory was wiped - but when he met his ex Orla, they ended up falling in love all over again. Their story is in today's Sun Online #sellyourstory #thesun #fabulous --- A man who lost his entire memory after being hit by a car fell in love with his ex-girlfriend for all over again, despite not remembering anything about her. The couple had been in a relationship as teenagers but had broken up a year before the near-fatal car accident. Thomas McKinney, who was 21 at the time, suffered brain damage and lost his memory, so he did not know who his first love was when he saw her on a ni
I wrote Natalie's story for New! magazine, who reveals how her bearded dog Buster helps her through the challenges of caring for her autistic son Ethan. Do you have a hero pet? #BritainsBestPets #SellMyStory --- I was like any other mother, eagerly awaiting their child’s next milestone as I watched my son Ethan learn to smile, roll over, sit up, walk and talk. But by the time he was one-and-a-half, everything changed. He stopped speaking, refused to eat most foods and became obsessed with certain rituals. He insisted on walking certain routes, didn’t interact with others and developed a fascination for numbers. He was constantly frustrated and his hyperactivity levels were through the roof.
Suzanne Holdsworth had not one but TWO surprise babies! I got her a deal with Take a Break magazine and MailOnline. Did you not realise you were pregnant until you went into labour? Email email@example.com#sellmystory #surprisebabies #takeabreak --- As I reached for a whisk and started beating the cake mix together, four figures appeared in the kitchen. ‘I’m hungry,’ my son Josh said. ‘When will dinner be ready?’ ‘Soon,’ I said. Once he’d traipsed out of the kitchen with his three younger sisters I stopped whisking, put the children’s dinner in the oven and leant against the kitchen side, exhausted. I was up to my eyes with errands. Three of my kids had summer birthdays so I had parties
