My name is Glynis who has an uncanny ability to live according to the “If it can go wrong… then it usually will” mantra. Thereby, my friends have aptly nicknamed me Gynx. (Glynis + Jinx)
I have recently been diagnosed with an auto-immune hypothyroid condition called Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, so I am now navigating my way through overcoming this condition and its ever growing symptoms.
While my condition has become a greater focus in my life, I am not defined by it – other ways to describe me are: Amateur photographer. Ambivert. Loyal friend. Long term romantic partner. Nature lover with a serious case of wanderlust. Foodie. Latin dance addict. Beach bum. Wine Drinker. Closet adventure seeker who loves to explore – especially because I recently moved to the small coastal town of Hermanus, just outside of Cape Town, which was a bit of a shock to the system for a city girl like myself.
And since this blog is about me… well its aptly named My Gynx’d life.
So welcome! I hope you enjoy the chronicles of my loves and loathes, with tales of my awkward or amazing experiences.
