I love Christmas time 🥰 . I like the tradition and routine and snuggliness. . But Christmas, or any festive period, can be overwhelming for autistic people and others who have fatigue conditions or sensory sensitivities, whether they enjoy it or not. . If you can control the environment in ways which suit you, great. But often when there are festivities it’s not possible. Some things I do to help myself during events are: . • Take regular breaks - I set a silent, vibrating alarm on my phone for every 45 minutes or so and keep it in my pocket. When it goes off, I take myself off for a few minutes to decompress (you can say you’re going to the bathroom) . • Plan something relaxing for straight after the event - like taking a bath . • Try and set clear start and end times to events . • If possible, have a day either side of the event without stressful commitments . It can be frustrating and difficult to manage energy and overload at this time of year, but I’ve learnt that it’s better to try rather than push through and end up in a heap before it’s even Christmas Day! . . . #actuallyautistic #spoonie #myalgicencephalomyelitis #autism #neurodiversity #autistic #neurodivergent #aspergers #aspie #mecfs #pwme #chronicfatigue #chronicfatiguesyndrome #invisibleillness #sensoryprocessingdisorder

"How do I feel better?" 🤔🤗 . . The obvious answer is to "Do things daily that make you feel better." However, the not so obvious part to this answer is the finding "what you need to do" to find what makes you feel better. . . For me, it was a journey. On the first step of my journey I tackled my migraines. So I started going to bed earlier, incorporating foods that prevented mograines from happening, and eliminating things that triggered them. I STARTED FEELING BETTER. (Migraines went from 3 a month to 3 total last year) . . My second leg of my journey was tackling my thyroid. I incorporated more foods as medicine, like my brazil nuts. I started #adaptogens (herbs) that were a crucial part in reducing my size of my remaining half of my thyroid. I stopped pushing myself to the edge when working out. I STARTED FEELING BETTER. . . My third leg of my health journey was tackling my anxiety. I started meditation every day. I learned how to love myself through my flaws. I learned that yoga was my soulmate exercise that helped me with my anxiety. I learned techniques that prevented anxiety from happening and started incorporating more food to use as medicine and I learned how to talk myself out of a panic attack. I made non-negotiables (like going outside every day and playing with the kids [pup included 📸]). I STARTED FEELING BETTER. . . . All of this 👆👆👆 is what you're getting for the next 12 days! . . Starting TODAY inside the Supermom's Eat Healthy group, the 12 DAYS OF HEALTHMAS kicks off! . . For the next 12 days you'll have a new expert teaching you all the things that you need to start doing, in order for you to feel better! . . Today we kick it off with @cassielynnlift sharing the importance of right techniques when lifting weights, the right time of day to workout for you, and what to do if you have a Chronic Disease. . . 🤗 here's to feeling better!! . .

I am changing things up a little this week. _____ Instead of having my shake for breakfast, I am going to have it for my afternoon snack. _____ I am going to have oats in a jar for breakfast this week. I love oats in a jar. It's such a quick, easy and healthy breakfast to make ahead of time and just grab out of the fridge, add your fruit, shake and eat! _____ Yum ~ healthy and delicious! 😊 _____ And.....instead of exercising in the morning, I am going to try evening workouts. 💪 _____ I know this is going to be a struggle for me since I like exercising first thing in the morning, but I think evening workouts will fit my schedule better. _____ In the past, evening workouts were really hard for me due to chronic fatigue ~ but, since drinking these shakes for the past month, I have been having more energy, able to stay awake all day, stay up late and that horrible fatigue is gone ~ YAY!!! 💖 ______ So, I am hoping that I can make these workouts happen at night now. Wish me luck! 😊 #changingmymeals #changingmyworkouts #morningworkout #eveningworkout #oatsinajar #shake #chronicfatigue #feelenergizednow #moreenergy #feelingbetter #hypothyroidism #hashimotoswarrior #hashimotosmom #hashimotos #takingcontrolofmyhealth #myhealthandfitnessjourney #wife #militarywife #mom #family #sahm #homeschoolmom #workfromhomemom #boymom #momboss

Stocked my fridge up today with lots of fruit and vegetables 🍏 So grateful for shopping delivery! Rather than worrying about struggling to put the shopping on the conveyer belt, packing the shopping and then trying to carry it back to the car alone feeling hot, dizzy and breathless. It was delivered to my door and all I had to do was unpack it in my kitchen and then have a short rest 😊 #onlineshopping #morrisons #freshfruit #freshveggies #healthyfoodchoices #dairyfree #alpro #healthyfoodhealthybody #healingfood #myalgicencephalomyelitis #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicfatigue #chronicpain #fibromyalgia #pots #potssyndrome #ibs #ibsawareness #fibromyalgiaawareness #meawareness #chronicillness #lifestyle #healthyfood #superfoods #antiinflammatoryfood #mindfuleating #healyourself #selfhealing #successmindset

No filters today. People need to see what people look like when they’re flaring. It’s not pretty. This is why I avoid people when I’m not well. My eyes look bruised, my psoriasis is spreading onto my face. I’ve had to take my tunnels out because they’re dry and itchy and swollen and sore . I feel like I’ve been run over. My thumb keeps coming out of place - I keep dropping everything because of it. My hips are popping when I walk. My back is aching so badly. “You need to let me know when you’re not feeling good”... ...Yet when I mention what’s going on, especially if it’s more than one thing I get told often that I’m complaining. It’s upsetting. It’s exhausting. It’s invalidating. I feel like I have no support. Being offered an ear to be told their horrible opinions. I don’t want to be like this, and feeling like I can’t tell anybody when I’m unwell without a negative comment is soul crushing. Im sorry that the first post in a good while is so negative. I’m just tired. Of everything. #mentalhealth #disabilityandmentalhealth #chronicillness #chronicpain #fatigue #chronicfatigue #copingwithchronicpain #livingwithachronicillness #anxiety #depression #fibromyalgia #ehlersdanlossyndrome #hypermobility #disability #younganddisabled #disabled #proudzebra #spoonie #youngspoonie #spoonieproblems #awareness #psoriasis #blackeyes #ilooklikeivebeenpunched #poppinghips #thumbsubluxation #dislocation #sickofitall #imsotired #tiredofbeingsotired

So I think I’ve just has the easiest hospital appointment I’ve ever had. I saw my gynaecologist for the first time today and presented to her my whole history of periods, chronic pain, nausea, sickness, fainting, cramping, stabbing, and so many more symptoms off of my list of things I’ve gotten used to over the past 11 years when in reality, I shouldn’t have. She listened and didn’t once shrug off my symptoms or blame my other conditions, which I’m all too familiar with. ⠀⠀⁣⁣ ⁣ She is almost certain I have Endometriosis. An ultrasound scan is being arranged to check if I have cysts on my ovaries, which will hopefully help determine whether we feel the need to have laparoscopy surgery or not. In the meantime, hormone pills are on the agenda and then another appointment in 6 months time. ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀⁣⁣ Now I’m going to concentrate on resting for the day, which will hopefully calm the internal shaking and pounding heart from using my only available energy, which was probably the whole weeks worth 😂⁣⁣ ⠀⠀⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀⁣⁣ #mentalhealthmatters #disability #panicattack #fibro #me #fibromyalgia #mentalhealth #spoonielife #anxiety #blogger #depression #endowsrrior #mentalheal #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalhealthawareness #anxietyattack #cfs #chronicfatigue #endometriosis #ibs #endowarrior #mentalbreakdown #mentalillnessawareness #recovery #suicide #sadness #invisibleillness #gastroparesis #cysticfibrosis #mindfullness

Went to a Dr. and he pointed out that I have stretchmarks on my tum and that I'd put on 2kg which sent me into a bit of a negativity spiral. Trying to strongarm myself into loving this squishy ol bod of mine.

Joy does not just HAPPEN to us.⠀ .⠀ I love this—because this brings together both my focus on selfcare AND my focus on joy this holiday season.⠀ .⠀ All the touchstones of the holiday: joy, selfcare, peace, faith, health, family time—they don’t just happen. We have to be intentional. We have to make choices. Again, and again, and again.⠀ .⠀ Dealing with chronic issues can be frustrating because we can often feel like we have very little choice in many areas of our lives. But this is not one of them.⠀ .⠀ Joy can be ours for the taking, regardless of the circumstances of our lives. Granted—learning HOW to choose joy is a whole series of its own. But the important thing is that we CAN.⠀ .⠀ And that we MUST.⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #functionalish#selfcare#31daysofselfcare#themostwonderfultimeoftheyear#chronicblogs#chronicblogger#chronicillness#chronicpain#chronicfatigue#epsteinbarr#depression#anxiety#insomnia#fibro#fibrofighter#countingspoons#spoonie#spoontheory#invisibleillness#butyoudontlooksick#livingwithlimits#abundantlife

It all comes down to movement. — — Think about when you injured yourself. Likely, the entire injury didn’t occur while lying on a table. Movement was probably involved somehow — either it hurts when you move a certain way, hurts when you don’t move a certain way, preventing you from working, preventing you from playing a sport, etc… — — When thinking of reintroducing movement, its easy to think of post surgical recovery, but this principle should apply to any injury; if we don’t learn how/when/why we move, why it hurts to move a certain way, why it feels better other ways, etc… then we were never truly empowered! — — For me, reintroducing movement may mean teaching completely new movement patterns and applying this to every day life or to a specific sport. If you’ve worked with me before, you’ve probably learned some sort of new movement pattern, whether it was a hip hinge, squat, press, core stability, walking, going up and down stairs, the list goes on… This process is not easy. Its much easier for both parties to show up to PT and sit on ice and E-stim and feel good for 20 minutes or so, but your time is much more valuable than that. Use it wisely. — — Injured and don’t know where to begin? DM me for more info!

A couple of videos are LIVE now! #linkinbio here is a preview of the 3rd for the week. It will be live this even 🤗 I look forward to helping other spoonies gain their strength no matter the staring point you are at. I will be sharing some lower strength videos this week that really work for me when I am unable to get up to go to the bathroom. We just have those moments and it’s fine because we fight for ourselves to get back up in the way we can! Starting out I really want to get out all my most helpful exercise when I have a major joint injury. Later I will start to share more intense (spoonie intense) strengthening exercises as well as sprinkles of mini workouts here and there! I think it is important we have a safe comfortable space to exercise and for those not in NYC to meet in class, there is no better place than our homes! I know with me my insurance stopped my PT and it is hard for me to force myself to strengthen when I know flared ups will happen since with proper alignment something my body isn’t use to it hurts for a while but the doctor says it will be around for a little like growing pains until I’m stronger and it’s (my back at the moment) use to it. I know many others may feel the same so join me and let’s get stronger together 💪🦄💚 #onlineexercise #btgonline #seeyouthere #spooniechristmas #safespace ##personalgoals #letsdothistogether #findwhatworksforyou #itsajourney #strongmindstrongbody #setgoalsandcrushthem #persistencepays #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #invisibleillness #ehlersdanlossyndrome #dysautonomia #spoonielife #spooniestrong #healthtips #medicalmarijuanapatient #cbdoil #naturalmedicine #boundtoglisten #chronicillnesscommunity #subscribenow

Scientific research verifies that regular earth grounding leads to numerous health benefits: better sleep, relief of muscle pain, relief of headaches, inflammation, and chronic pain. Many people experience restored energy, improved digestion, and circulation, and more. Touching the earth with bare feet simply isn’t feasible in our every day life, but our earth grounding sheets can accomplish the same mission while you sleep. Try our earth grounding sheets for better overall health, and embrace every day with the power of the earth. Link in Bio #getbetter #peace✌️

#repost @theheightsthatwuthered with @make_repost ・・・ Finished this amazing book. I cannot recommend it enough. As someone with the same illness as @behinddarkglasses it was a very hard read but Jessica's positive made it easier to get through. No one deserves some of the things she went through and I'm so grateful to her for sharing her story. M.E is basically unheard of unless you have it or know someone with it, so this is the first time I've seen anything about it in writing. The Book was brilliant. Although for the majority of the book Jessica was bed bound it was such a vivid tale. The people jumped off the page as well as any fiction. Her family's devotion, the bad and the good medical staff, the wonderful nick who gave her designer sunglasses. I don't have words for how important this book is and how much it means to me to have someone sharing their story. My M.E has never been as severe as Jessica's but in writing this she had told us all that we have a voice and the right to be heard. In writing this, for me, she has been the spark of hope she longed to be. #bookstagram #books #book #bookish #bibliophile #agirlbehinddarkglasses #jessicataylorbearman #chronicfatiguesyndrome #myalgicencephalomyelitis #myalgice #mecfs #cfs #cfsme #chronicillness #chronicfatigue #spoonie #thatspooniefeel #spoontheory #memoir #autobiography

Lyxig frukost i form av veganska saffranspannkakor med havregrädde och sylt. Jag har blivit förkyld, irriterad hals som gör ont och är slemmig. Förutom det så känns det mest som vanligt, bara en nyansskillnad i trötthet och värken i kropp och knopp. Att det bara är en nyansskillnad jämfört med hur jag alltid mår gör det svårt att faktiskt se till att vila även nu när jag är förkyld. Som fysiskt frisk hade jag ju antagligen lyssnat på kroppens signaler och sett till att vila, men eftersom att det inte är någon större skillnad jämfört med hur jag mår dagligen numer så är det svårt att lyssna på. Något som ju är rätt sjukt. För oavsett om det rör sig om ME/CFS eller en förkylning borde jag ju lyssna på kroppens signaler. Men det hade ju också betytt att jag aldrig skulle ta mig upp ur sängen i stort sätt. Så hur ska en tolka kroppens signaler, vart ska en dra gränsen? . . . . . . . . . . #mecfs #svmecfs #myalgicencephalomyelitis #chronicillnesses #chronicfatigue #chronicpain #mecfswarrior #fibromyalgi #spoonie #kronisksmärta #kronisksjukdom

Just a reminder for anyone and everyone who needs it! - Very easy to just want to give up, but I just take a deep breath and think of the incredible journey I've been on in the last 5 years, however hard it's been I've made it to where I am today! - I've also learnt that keeping going doesn't always mean on the same path you're on. Keeping going just means taking a little step in the direction that will help you most even if it's not the same direction as everyone else. - I know it's hard but if you're reading this, you're doing so well KEEP GOING 💕💪🏻 #lupus #lupusflare #spoonie #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicfatigue #chronicillness #quotes #rhuematoidarthritis #rhuematoidarthritiswarrior

Aujourd’hui parlons activité physique et sommeil 😴 On relie souvent la pratique avec la fatigue mais dans quel sens agit-elle ? Qu’on se mette d’accord la fatigue provoquée par l’activité physique dépend de l’intensité 😪 Alors oui lorsque vous êtes très fatigué, il faut réduire l’intensité sinon vous avez plus de 60% de risque de vous blesser que de prendre soin de votre santé 🤕 Dans le même temps, l’activité physique améliore la qualité du sommeil 😴 Il faut donc ajuster sa pratique en cas de fatigue trop importante mais, le plus souvent, elle joue un rôle bénéfique sur les cycles du sommeil 💤 C’est une question de curseur et d’écoute de son corps 👌🏻 Ainsi, que ce soit pour les enfants, les adolescents, les adultes ou les personnes âgées, une dose d’activité physique et au lit 🛏 😂 — Bonne journée avec Aptitude Santé 😊 — #rennes #rennesmaville #rennesmetropole #rennescity #rennais #rennaise #bzh #bretagne #aptitudesante #sante #activitephysique #activitephysiqueadaptee #apa #sport #sportsante #likes #insta #exercice #motivation #travail #activite #temps #journee #sommeil #fatigue #dormir #chronicfatigue #lundi #atresvite

💫Stress💫Our bodies can only handle stress for so long before they start screaming for help. If you are living a busy stressful life, you are at risk of having a myriad of issues if you don't stop and take time for yourself. . . .... .... “There is no race to the finish, it's about enjoying the journey”. Love this quote as it’s a much needed reminder to myself! .... .... If you are feeling wired but tired, craving salty foods, bruising easily and are in need of stimulants to keep you awake, it's quite possible you have a problem with Cortisol - the "stress" hormone. You can read my blog post on "How to Lower your Stress Hormones Naturally". . . .... .... For some of you, working with a practitioner on how to rebalance your cortisol is important. Going too long with an imbalance and constantly trying to manage daily stresses can lead to burn out - your body's way of saying, "I just can't take it anymore". Call the clinic to book a free meet and greet to discuss how we can customize a plan unique to your body, your reality and your specific needs. . . .... .... #health #nutrition #guthealth #adaptogens #probiotics #guthealing #adrenals #adrenalsupport #tonic #organicfood #foodblogger #balancinghormones #tonicherbs #foodismedicine #wellness #eatwell #healthcoach #healthblogger #bodytalk #healthchat #eatclean #energy #tired #stress #noenergy #busymom #exhausted #chronicfatigue #chronicillness #thewholefoodapothecary

Bought myself some compression gloves to see if they help with my hand pain/stiffness. The cold weather definitely has an effect and so far they’ve worked great, they keep my hands really warm, they feel like they’re holding everything in place, like someone’s holding my hand. 🧤 #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #fibromyalgia #fibro #fibrowarrior #jointhypermobilitysyndrome #hypermobilitysyndrome #hypermobility #hsd #hypermobilityspectrumdisorders #spoonie

Inflammation and depression / Yay loads of colours on this plate, ticking off yellow, red, green and got orange and green at lunch. Also meant to be introducing red, purple and black rice this is all in an effort to increase my microbiome diversity after being on a low fodmap and paleo diet for the last 18 months. The main inflammatory foods I’m still avoiding are dairy, gluten, refined sugars and packaged/processed foods (I like to stick to the paleo view on this as in better to eat something that’s not in a box with additives and preservatives). To be honest I think my gut is still very much inflamed as my brain fog, fatigue and mood still are not good. Any advice on ways to decrease inflammation and brain fog would be much appreciated... experts and gut nerds??? Can be prescription or non prescription. My belief is that inflammation is a main cause of depression and this is why many people don’t respond to antidepressants and psychiatry is behind the research and needs to pick up the pace. I recently took part in a study on inflammation markers in depression as they may start to treat depression with anti inflammatory medicines in the future and hopefully more research gets done in this area. I’ve seen depression and anxiety being so common in people struggling with ibs and sibo.. even in my 1.5 years on insta. My gastro recently said 60% of people with ibs have depression yet it was just a fact not a oh maybe it’s because of X or Y... 🧠 love to know peoples thoughts on this? #microbiome #guthealth #inflammation #gastritis #sibo #gutdysbiosis #brainfog #depression #fatigue #chronicfatigue #thyroid #hashimotosdisease #autoimmunedisease #glutenfree #dairyfree #sugarfree #paleo #lowfodmap #naturopathicmedicine #naturopathy #functionalmedicine #digestivehealth #constipation #ibs #mental health

I've so much I NEED to do and WANT to do but it's so hard to even function when you are running on empty, constantly !. My short term memory feels like its the worst it's ever been . I'm having to set reminders for everything and I have my good old notebook for my to do lists ....just call me Dory ! #keeponswimming #thestruggleisreal #chronicfatigue #ehlersdanlos #energylevels #sloth #sedatives repost @thechronicills

Do you share your feelings or do you bottle everything up? I should share more, talk more. It's just hard to talk sometimes. It can also be so exhausting to tell what you really think and feel. However I know that If I don't share important feelings or what's going on, my body goes into a panic attack. It's my body's way of saying that it needs to come out. No good to deny what you and your body is feeling. Sooo... I try my best to get everything out one way or another by talking, walking, writing, exercising or simply by listening to music. 💜 . . . . . . . . . . . . #fibromyalgia #fibrowarrior #invisibleillness #strong #keepgoing #cfs #adrenalfatigue #adrenal #share #depression #pain #mental #feelings #positive #faith #motivational #fight #autoimmune #body #fibro #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #strength #spoonie #mentalhealth #health #life #thyroid #warrior #selfcare

What it feels like to be missing out on a gig that all your friends went to only because your body’s given up on you around 6pm. I’m not mad at my body a lot, there’s still a surprising amount it allows me to do, it’s just every now and then it would be nice to be able to press pause on the pain and not be at the mercy of something out of your control. 👌🏻 🐒🐒🐒🐒🐒 #gelada #geladababoon #theropithecusgelada #monkeycrushmonday #mcm #mancrushmonday #primatology #bioanth #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #spoonie #fibromyalgia #lymedisease

I pour my heart and soul into every connection I make and I’m sad when it’s not reciprocated but it doesn’t make me feel more or less of a person. 2 years later and I’m still standing. I don’t post things that isn’t true to my belief. This is my life: . . I #workout and devout my intention into #fitness because I believe it is the best outlet for #stressmanagement. It is important to be able to #move especially when you are able because there are so many who can’t. It’s #preventativehealth . . I #eat whatever hell I want and manage my #diet and focus on #nutrition because #youarewhatyoueat but your life doesn’t have to be restricted. It’s a #balance . . I #meditate with every step I take and #liftheavy do #yoga and #pilates or @SoulCycle whenever I feel like it or whenever I want to support a friend who’s organizing an event (follow @training.for.churros) . I practice #chinesemedicine #acupuncture #herbalmedicine because I believe it is a modality that is undervalued for its place in healthcare. If you want to know if it will help you, don’t google- #askme . . When you’re in a rut and you can’t figure out why, it’s frustrating. you’re not “unhealthy,” you’re #fit, #eatingclean, #strong...but yet in a funk, don’t know why but you know somethings not right. then suddenly the #struggle becomes very real you develop #gutissues #pain #chronicfatigue . . The root of your pain may not be as complicated as you think or maybe it is but you won’t know that if your provider isn’t seeing the whole picture. . . The success of my practice is not from giving false hope. I #keepitreal #nobodygottimeforthat #hocuspocus “I will save you” mantra...I can only help you heal if you will grant me that honor to show you how. . #losgatos #latergram Lyndon Plaza above @willowstreetpizza @mainstreetburgers in downtown @losgatostown

Feel so unbelievably lucky that I have friends who are prepared to wheel me around, and even uphill! I use a manual wheelchair to get out of the house, and I love the freedom it gives me, but that freedom is dependent on willing volunteers 😂 so it’s very fortunate that I have such generous friends!

I am so so grateful to work amongst such a big hearted team of legends!! And I promise you that it’s no accident that I do - focusing on WHAT YOU DO WANT delivers remarkable results. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yesterday we got our rock on and celebrated incoming Christmas festivities, this years growth as a team, and our dedication to improving the health and lives of our clients and community. Perhaps more clinging than climbing on my behalf 😬😆 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I always talk about the importance of the content we consume in our lives and relationships as well as our work environments are an enormous part of this. Our unconscious mind doesn’t just take on the self talk from ourselves, it’s also the verbal cues from those around us! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How powerfully positive are the words coming out of the mouths you surround yourself with!? It’s always the right time to move towards empowering content consumption 😉🔆

Well I’m up, dressed, makeup on and ready to head to work. I thought I’d maybe have to call in sick today after the weekend but I feel I can go. Probably because there is absolutely no pressure in this job. I can take it easy through the day. Today I will be organising Xmas decorations so not a huge job.. plus I love doing it #heartpalpitations #functionalneurologicalsymptoms #functionalneurologicaldisorder #functionalneurology #fndhope #fndaware #fndwarrior #neurologicaldisorder #neurologicaldisorders #neurological #chronicillness #chronicfatigue #chronicpainwarrior #depression #selfesteem #anxiety #depressionwithchronicillness #migrainewithaura #workingwithchronicillness #workingwithfnd

How amazing does this popcorn look?! I was kindly sent this from @popcornshed and you bet I'll be buying more in (from Ocado)! I actually have a blog post up (link in my bio) which lists all of the ingredients and my overall thoughts! They all taste so so amazing and unique! I'm actually not a massive fan of popcorn because I find it too sweet or too salty but I love this! I can eat bag after bag 😂 I'm very impressed with how delicious they are! I would highly recommend 😍😋 Also, the packaging of the 'shed' always makes me smile! The perfect Christmas present in my eyes😍🎅 🎄 🎄 #glutenfree #wheatfree #coeliac #coeliacdisease #coeliacfriendly #foodblogger #foodie #foodstagram #glutenfreeblogger #glutenfreeliving #nogluten #singluten #senzaglutine #sansgluten #freefrom #instafood #glutenfreeuk #celiacdisease #celiac #blog #blogger #coeliaceats #freefrom #glutenfreefoodie #dairyfree #spoonie #chronicillness #chronicfatigue #mecfs #chronicfatiguesyndrome

Very raw, and personal new blog post up. . This is a letter i have written to my rheumatologist. I am super tempted to send it. But i am wanting at least a few others to read it and give me opinions on if I should send it. . I am so much more articulate and honest in writing than I am in person or over the phone. I panic in the face of authority or higher levels of knowledge. . This is the most vulnerable I think I have ever made myself on social media. . #lupusawareness #lupussucks #undiagnosed #chronicillness #spoonielife #spoonie #fatigue #lupie #lupusblog #justalittlelupie #chronicbackpain #chronicfatigue #lupusflare #lupuspain #lupus #myjourney #mylifewithlupus #myalgia #lowbackpain #fevers #searchingforanswers #chestpain

I took this photograph a while before I became severely ill with #mecfs. Today I recognize the deeper meaning of it. Like the little bug is trapped in the wide field of sand I'm trapped in my body. Every step feels like walking on sand, you make one step ahead and slide back at once. You make hardly any progress although you are walking. Two steps forward, one step back. Every day. . #naturephotography #chronicillness #travel . . . #travel #travelphotography #sand #beach #makrophotography #denmark #bugs #nature #beach #sand #chronicpain #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicfatigue #spoonie #spoonielife #chronicpainwarrior #spooniewarrior #explorenature #smallthings #mindfulness #grateful #gratitude
