If only every morning could start this way. Awaking the body as the night says hello to the day. Breathe in through center breath out twice over left shoulder (he he. Pushing the past back) breathe in through center breath out long over right shoulder (keeping the future at bay).

I'm actually in quite alot of pain today. I'm doing bare minimal today and yet my hips and knees are hurting so much they could reduce me to tears. However, the sun is shining, I have had a lovely half term week with the girls and Steve and things are in a good place for me, so I smile 😊❤ #fibromyalgiawarrior #fibromyalgiafighter #fibromyalgia #fibromyalgiaawareness #fibro #fibrofighter #fibrowarrior #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #chronicillnessfighter #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #fibrolife #fightingpain #chronicfatigue #cfs #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicfatiguefighter

Another treatment day. Today I was actually able to close my eyes and try to relax during treatment. Usually I have to bring along my laptop to try and make up every hour I am missing work for. The reality is the world doesn’t stop when something causes your life to take you down a different road. A road that has a lot of road closure hazard signs. It didn’t take me long to realize the concern of others soon fades after initial discovery of diagnosis. Not saying that all care is lost, but others have their own lives to live and their increased concern soon fades. You left holding all the broken pieces feeling lost and alone. Just wishing there was at least one individual you knew that just understood. So you do what you know how to do, you push on. You fight. You’ll trip, you’ll fall apart, you’ll want to stop along the way, but the important thing is to get up and keep going. Even if it’s half your normal speed or if you need a device to assistance your a hand to hold. Just keep going. You got this. . . . . . #dysautonomia #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #autonomicdysfunction #ehlersdanlossyndrome #ehlersdanlos #heds #orthostaticintolerance #gastroparesis #zebrastrong #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #chronicfatigue #invisableillness #spooniestrong #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonies #spoonieproblems #spooniewarrior #spooniecommunity #spooniesunite #butyoudontlooksick #potssyndrome #livingmightywell #potsie #lifewithchronicillness #joyfullyrare

Float therapy helps control stress by reducing triggers, clearing your mind, and even reducing the perception of pain. So while floating won't “cure” your Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, it can help control symptoms that may be contributing to your fatigue and low energy. . . . . . #floatmississauga #floattank #mississauga #portcredit #toronto #float #minerals #mineral #serenity #relax #health #floattherapy #mineralsalt #mineralsalts #bliss #blissful #recover #rejuvinate #insurancebenefits #anxiety #depression #calming #meditate #chronicfatigue #fatigue #lowenergy #tranquil #mind #body #soul

I usually keep my Insta pretty positive but it's time for a bit of blunt honesty. The last 2-3 months have been hard! Winter is hard on my body. I've been sleeping 12-15 hours a day, I've been housebound a lot of the time and spending most of my days in bed due to the pain. This results in my body deconditioning meaning when I do try to do anything my joints are less stable and small tasks are much harder than usual. But at last the end is in sight. Spring is almost here! And as the weather improves hopefully so will my symptoms. And maybe, just maybe, by Easter I'll be back to my normal. #winterishard #springiscoming #lookingforward #onwardsandupwards #3monthflare #eds #ehlersdanlossyndrome #fibro #fibromyalgia #chronicfatigue #permanentlyexhaustedpigeon #housebound

MOVEMENT WITH CHRONIC ILLNESS I have noticed that many of the women that are sick with chronic illness were once very active. This was definitely true for myself. I loved running, yoga and weight lifting and after I became ill those things became impossible. In the beginning of my illness, I fought hard to keep INTENSE exercise in my life rather than listening to what my body needed from me. I vacillated between doing a 90 minute Bikram yoga class to crashing to doing nothing for a month. All the while telling my body that it was a failure! How awful! I get the devastation that comes from not being able to do things as intensely as you did before. I REALLY get it. But now, I listen to my body. If it desires something more intense, I allow it. If it just wants a few stretches or 10 minutes of yoga, I also listen. But, every single day, I MOVE my body….this is more important than anything. What is your body telling you it needs? Are you doing workouts that are too intense? Or are you not doing enough movement which is restricting healing? Both can restrict wellness. This week, my body has needed gentle exercises (yoga, walking, stretching) after I accidentally glutened myself last weekend. My body has been recovering all week, so I have honored that and done simple things to keep it moving. Sure, maybe during those weeks you regress a bit in strength or flexibility but those things ARE NOT important. What is more important is honoring your body by giving it what it needs. There are NO failures here. What movement do you do daily? #chronicfatigue #chronicillness #chronicpain #cfs #lymedisease #lymewarrior #autoimmunedisease #movement

SUPER-SUPPLEMENT SATURDAY.... BRINGING OUT THE BIG GUNS .... . As a Coach to literally many hundreds of clients over a 25 year period sometimes its important to simply DO AS I SAY ... & NOT ALWAYS DO AS I DO !! ... I live most of my life as an example to my clients but sometimes I push my body harder than I should - and have paid the prices. But I learn - I know and sometimes I choose to take those risks. Today is one of those days. If you follow me you’ll know I’ve overstressed my body recently. I am on the edge of burying myself in a deep hole again - but the first CROSSFIT OPEN workout has started and I want to be involved. Today’s supplement BIG GUNS - Included a Pre-workout stimulant with a high level of caffeine and other additional natural stimulants. Great for helping push through a workout but not good for an over stressed body placing further strain on the CNS, adrenals and liver . The rest of the week I will now take plenty of herbal adaptogens, drink lots of green tea, avoid coffee, take curcumin, ginger, drink warm lemon water and exercise easy to bring me back into balance to name just a few of my RECOVERY ACTIONS . Additional ingredients in my drink however included CREATINE & BETA ALANINE - Awesome workout supplements I’ll discuss more on my website . www.PaulHoskingsCoaching.com . As I finished the workout I sat NO1 in the United Kingdom and NO10 in the World for the workout for my Age Group Division - HA - HA - Trust me with 2 more days to complete the workout I will simply watch myself fall DOWN the leaderboard from this point !!! However considering what I’ve done to my body recently I’m happy with my performance. Now to be kind to my body & RECOVER . . . . . #crossfit #crossfitopen2019 #crossfitopen #recovery #gains #adrenalfatigue #overtraining #chronicfatigue #workoutnutrition #biohacking #sportssupplements #preworkoutdrink #strong #muscle #sportsperformance #fitafter40 #fitdad #gymfit #gymlife #workout #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #instafit #fitnessguru #gymlifestyle #bcaa #fitnessadvice #nutrition #creatine #onlinepersonaltrainer

Leg day- weights and HIIT. Was going to say I don't know how I did that, in such a state of exhaustion after more busy days and nights of not sleeping due to intense stress. But I do. Because my life's work is training myself to keep going no matter how hard it is physically. To the edge of collapse. That's normal life for me, workout or no workout. I have no other option and even this is still never enough. Hard to type today as my hands are trembly (along with the rest of my body). #legday #workout #liift4 #weighttraining #hiit #joelfreeman #beachbody #progress #gains #chronicfatigue #chronicpain #chronicfighter #chronicillness #zebrastrong #hypermobilityspectrumdisorder #hypermobilitysyndrome #ehlersdanlos #eds #heds #fightingforit #bodypositivefitness #haes #healthateverysize #bod #beachbodyondemand

*Credit to the artist* Strict as can be today! No pretending I’m strong, no set goals or to do lists (well there is but I’m not looking at them!). I am having a day off! My Husband is being his amazing self and knew before I even said anything that I needed this. I’m going to take each passing hour as it comes, listen closely to my body and relax/heal! The weather is supposed to be spring like this weekend so I definitely want some fresh air too but I’m not rushing, I will wait until I know I’m at a stage where my symptoms are lower and I feel more human with lower pain and more strength. That could be later today or tomorrow but it doesn’t matter. I’m so thankful for my Husband, I would be in such a dark place going through all of this without him. He is the light that ensures that I know this isn’t forever even if it feels like it, he is my crutch to lean on when things are too much and has a true understanding because he has been through everything with me, every step of the way. I’m tired of being exhausted, pained, having reduced mobility, sweating, being cold, tripping over and forgetting what I want to say. Today I am just going to be and that’s enough 🖤#functionalanddissociativeneurologicalsymptoms #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #fibromyalgia #endometriosis #brain #function #nervoussystem #messages #notgettingthrough #reducedmobility #restday #healing #learningtowalkagain #tired #noexpectations #appreciation #husband #myshininglight #love #myjourney #mystory #dysfunctional #listeningtomybody #strength #pain #strictwithmyself #takingitasitcomes #understanding

Not quite this scene in London today but how glorious is this sunshine! ☀️ 🙌🏻It’s definitely not the same weather as last February! ❄️ . We hope everyone is taking a Saturday stroll and soaking up that rarity of being able to absorb some vitamin D in winter 🌞 . With most adults thought to being somewhat deficient in vitamin D and with it being one of the most prescribed supplements by health care practitioners, now is the time to get outside and absorb it the old fashioned way! . We also have a wonderful announcement coming tomorrow… who can guess what? Here’s a clue…☁️💤✨🛍 . N & L x

Listen to your body. Its telling you something. That pose how does it feel are you in pain, joy,content. What do you need to back off from, what do you need to embrace, do you need to completely leave the pose. Now bring that into your life. How are you stuck, where is the joy, what do you need to move away from. That is the true yoga. Day one was great. The best yoga session I've ever had, deep, inspiring, and eye opening.

Legs feel like they might explode, out of breath, fatigued, generally feeling rough. It’s important to remember when you’re having a day like this that although everything feels like shit, there will be something (no matter how small) that isn’t. Focus on that for now. It’ll see you through. It’s not about saying everything is fine when it isn’t. It’s about recognising that *something* is fine, even when you are not. #cfs #mecfs #cfsme #spoonie #fibro #spoonielife #spoonieproblems #butyoudontlooksick #invisibleillness #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #chronicfatiguesyndrome #themighty #graphicdesign #typography #handlettering

Depression & anxiety surround us all. You may not feel it yourself, but chances are you know someone that does. You might know them in person, or even just online. It’s those online though that you might not be aware of. You might follow them, comment on their posts, even talk to them on a messenger. ⁣ ⁣ They might not have told you what they’re going through, but what you might not realise is even one kind word can help them cope that day. One kind word can turn their day around when they might be feeling emotions you have no idea about. ⁣ ⁣ Then there’s those online that you might see being victim to cyber bullying, they might be being harassed by anonymous comments, they might even be being told to kill themselves... it’s shocking to believe but it’s all too true. ⁣ ⁣ You might be aware of it, but what you won’t be aware of is one kind word could change their day, one kind word could brighten their day and help them get through another day of coping with depression, anxiety, cyber bullying, harassment, and then of course, chronic illness. ⁣ ⁣ One message can be all it takes to encourage someone sometimes to get through another day, and you have the power to do so ♥

Admiring nature after a run that finally felt good again. I was not feeling good this morning. Still wanted to go for a run thinking it would probably end up a walk. But I ran for 40 minutes. Slowly but surely.

Overall I have to say my first impression of #parkrun was incredible. It’s very friendly and runners or walkers of all ages and ability are there, they have a tail walker who stays with the last person so no one is left behind. It’s run by those young and old and I will definitely be back! Hopefully next week if the body permits it! Thank you Park run! For being amazing! Now time to rest, relax watch the rugby and also listen the mighty #leytonorient in the cup! Come on boys! Have a good week all 👍🏻👍🏻 #racereview #parkrunreview #richmondparkrun #runningmotivation #recovery #mentalhealth #cfs #chronicfatigue #get #running #anxiety #health #pushyourself #youcandoit #garmin #forerunner225 #nrc #ukrunchat #pace #backtohealth #fitness #gettingstronger #wellbeing 3/3

This is too relatable not to share 😂 I have FAR too many people in my life that say this to me when I haven't been able to leave my bed for over a week. " why don't you try a nice walk?" F#$k off, the walk to the toilet is making me making me Google incontinence pads and you think the outdoors where there are MORE elements to contend with would help.

Thomas played a matching game on the phone for ages this morning. He's tried these things before but sometimes the bits are moving and he finds it hard to aim at them even without the matching bit as he has to use his left hand. This one was just right though and he loved being able to do it 😁🤗.

Dreamy deliveries! I’ve found my inner Monica again, which definitely shows how improved my health has got. I am able to life, properly get involved in all aspects of it. The fun, the shopping, the house stuff. Yep I know I’m going on and on about it but debilitating chronic and mental illness for 5 frigging years, and finally a tiny bit of a reprieve. I keep crying through sheer happiness rather than sadness for a change.

This evening I'm going to watch a musical my sister is starring in so I need to pace myself wisely! So I've put off washing my hair! Hoping to do it later but it's far too early to be making those kind of decisions 😂 #saturday #weekend #pace #me #cfs #mecfs #cfsme #myalgicencephalomyelitis #pyjamas #pyjamaday #chronicillness #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicfatigue #chronicpain #hypermobility #jointhypermobilitysyndrome #jointhypermobility #pain #exhausted #sleepy #pem #postexertionalmalaise

I would like to take a moment to talk about medical bills associated with being chronically ill. Since January 2018 to present, I have spent (out of pocket) $21,000 on medical bills related to endometriosis alone. I have had endo for 8 years now... I’m guessing my overall medical bills to be at a minimum, approx $35,000 (and counting) and I’m still unwell the majority of the time and trying desperately to ease my symptoms. There needs to be so much more awareness and research for endometriosis. With sharing our stories and struggles, hopefully the next generation won’t have to endure what we have. 💛

Wayne has shared his cold with me so I’m feeling particularly unwell. It’s probably just a reminder to be grateful for normally being able to breathe easily through my nose 😂❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #drawingmylife #drawing #illustration #illustrator #characterdesign #doodle #dailydoodle #spoonielife #spooniewarrior #spoonies #chronicallyawesome #chronicillness #fibromyalgia #chronicfatigue #autoimmune #butyoudontlooksick #invisibleillness #multiplesclerosis #ms #spoonies #gotacold #artparadise

One of the things I enjoy most about @breakfastandme is thinking up new granola recipes. It happens slowly within my energy limits but it still feels so good! I really want to be able to put a new recipe on my online shop which will hopefully be live in the second week of March. I’m working on this Banana and Pecan recipe which is now really close to being ready. It still needs a few tweaks but the crunch of the banana chips, seeds and nuts is just what I wanted. Best thing is I have to test taste it all!! #homemadegranola #granola #homebaking #homebakingbusiness #homebaker #homeproducts #homeproducer #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #workfromhome #pacing #buyfromsmallbusinesses #onlineshop #breakfast #breakfastandme #breakfastideas #healthyfood #healthybreakfast #healthy2019 #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicfatigue #mecfs #cfsrecovery #energy #bloodsugar #nutrition #slowreleaseenergy #oatsforbreakfast #feelingexcited

This week I'm doing a series of posts to help educate about Mould Illness. This is Post 6 of 7.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So what happens after you find out your 'unexplained' illness is actually caused by mould and biotoxin exposure, and that you have been tested and diagnosed with CIRS (Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome) - Read my last posts this week for more info. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You need to start the treatment protocol. Dr Shoemaker (I've spoked about him in previous posts this week too) developed a protocol that needs to be taken in it's proper order. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ First of all, you must removed the source of the toxins - see previous posts on ERMI testing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You then start treatment. An integrative GP will prescribe Cholestyamine which helps to bind the toxins and remove them from your body. A Naturopath will offer natural alternatives to this medical treatment, which may involve charcoal, bentonite and chlorella.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Blood tests and VCS testing needs to be monitored at each step (see previous posts this week for more on this).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is likely that you will be given dietary recommendations, especially going Gluten Free for a minimum of 3 months, as the genetic test for mould sensitivity also is used to show genetic susceptibility to celiac disease. It's not a diagnosis for celiac disease, but it is recommended to stay off Gluten during the treatment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are suspicious that you have have mould or biotoxin illness, please feel free to book an appointment with me at www.southsideclinic.com.au. This is an area I'm really interested in and have done lots of additional reading and study. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ermitesting #mouldillness #shoemakerprotocol #environmentalmedicine #cirs #chronicfatigue #fibromyalgia #naturopath #nutritionist

spent the evening with my husband at the @mrbobbybones show at @riversidecasino....it’s probably the hardest i’ve laughed in a long time 😂😅. i’ve listened to bobby bones for years and am obsessed with his show. everyone on it is so honest and they raise tons of money for all types of charities 💕 recently they raised money to give injured vets a dog when they come home 🇺🇸🐾💪🏻. after coming home, i took a “nap” and woke up at 2 AM. and am wide. awake. 😷 decided to get up and get a few things done while i had the energy 🙃 happy weekend friends 🙋🏻‍♀️ #weekendvibes #weekend #selfie #selfcare #selflove #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #spooniesisterhood #mentalhealthawareness #rheumatoidarthritis #ibs #anxiety #depression #sickbutinvisible #butyoudontlooksick #love #instagram #photooftheday

So many people with hypothyroidism around the world are on medication yet their quality of life is poor. They’re not living, they’re just existing. They’re not thriving, they’re just surviving. How is this OK? 😖 So many of us end up becoming our own doctors in effect which is really ridiculous when you sit and think about it. 🦋💙#hypothyroidism #underactivethyroid #thyroidadvocate #thyroiddisease #thyroidawareness #thyroidwarrior #hashis #hashimotos #hashimotosthyroiditis #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease #chronicillness #chronicfatigue #spoonie #theinvisiblehypothyroidism

Got out on a short 9 holes yesterday with some top lads and goalscorers @stodge.90 and @willo_crew sore as owt now though! Slow and steady wins the race. Being out in the fresh air is excellent for the head, when the crack is good it helps even more. Wonder if there’s anything I can do about getting knackered straight away. going to do some stretching and a quick swim to try to loosen up this morning. Also managed a first by hitting the ball into a birds nest (no birds were in it 😂) #golf #agoodwalkspoiled #mentalhealth #hallucinations #eupdawareness #bipolar #fibromyalgia #fibromentalhealth #fibromen #ibd #ibs #chronicfatigue #painmanagement #mentallyexhausted #psycosis #fibrofit #hearingvoices #borderline #fodmap #lowfodmap #selfharm #fightyourselfhealthy #chronicfatigue #spoonie #slowliving #slow #visualhallucinations #auditoryhallucinations

A messy view from "we moved in 3 months ago why is it so untidy" headquarters.. . . 4 weeks after moving house i had the worst flare ever, and it's still going. I'm sure this is the reason everything is still a mess. I've had 2 weeks off work to try and rest and recover from whatever is going on right now but it hasn't made a difference, so I have the dread of driving with random and unpredictable attacks of joint pain, swelling and spacicity in either hands, wrists, elbows or shoulders and working 6 hours 5 days a week as a secretary. . . I'm grateful I have my job and that my employers are flexible, but I don't feel nearly able enough to complete a days work to the standard I expect for myself now that this has happened. No one knows what it is and my MRI got moved so no answers until April at least. One suggestion was migratory arthritis although inflammatory markers all normal, but the pain responds well to anti inflammatory so I think I need to accept it as the diagnosis until we know more. . . Very hard being a mum to 3, working 5 days and looking after a house when this sort of thing happens. I've managed to use pain management techniques since age 15 to deal with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, but this is so new and acute that the pain takes my breath away. Staying positive right now is difficult. #fibromyalgia #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #ehlersdanlossyndrome #eds #heds #hypermobility #arthritis #zebrastrong

Sometimes I’m so knackered after getting out of the bath and drying myself that I need to lie down on the landing before I can make it to my bedroom. Sometimes, like now, I also remember that I’ve managed to lie in the exact spot where the cat threw up. 🤦🏽‍♀️😷😅 . . . #orthostaticintolerance #pwme #mecfs #spoonielife #meawareness #myalgicencephalomyelitis #mecfs #chronicfatigue #potsie #thespooniesisterhood #itsallfunandgamesuntilyourelyingincatsick
