There’s been several times in my life that I thought I had no choice but to give up. 🦋 Give up finding a diagnosis. Give up being able to work. Give up being “healthy”. 🦋 But eventually, I’d figure out I don’t need to give up; I just need to change tactics, environments, mentalities. I just need to adapt. 🦋 “If cauliflower somehow can become pizza...you, my friend can do anything!” 🦋 Thanks to @heymamaco for sharing the quote! 📷 Credit: Joanie Simon (via Unsplash) . . . . . . . . . #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #invisibleillnesswarrior #invisiblydisabled #invisibledisability #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #chronicillnesswarrior #hashimotosdisease #hashimotosthyroiditis #hashimotoswarrior #thyroiddisease #thyroiddisorder #chronicfatigue #chronicfatiguesyndrome #autoimmune #autoimmuneillness #spoonie #spooniecommunity #spooniesunite #bandofspoonies #empoweringlife #designyourlife #butyoudontlooksick #takecareofyou #adapttoyourlimitations

I'm FINALLY at a point in my life where I feel talk a openly and honestly about my struggles with chronic pain, chronic illness, depression and anxiety etc. However, this is peppered between posts of me living it up on dates & doing full on, elaborate m/u, & being sassy & extra as hell. It may seem juxtaposed, even conflicting.... I choose to enjoy my life & fight for normalcy; to keep my passion alive, to make something of myself, express myself, be a better wife to Thor, & to be able to give back to this world, even in small ways. I fight for answers, for healing, for belief, for my optimism, for my physical & mental health. Although my moments of optimal function are fewer & farther between, as of late, I do not accept a steady & continuous decline as my ultimate fate. Going out, even to run small errands, takes tremendous effort some days. Some days I am brought to my knees by the pain & reduced to tears. The pain exasperates my depression. My mother died after being shuffled around from DR to DR, each telling her nothing was wrong, until it was TOO LATE & she had stage 4 cancer. How's that for terrifying flashbacks, and crippling anxiety? I can't sleep some nights. I get violently ill & become bed ridden from weakness or pain. I can't eat some days. My head feels like it is going to collapse in on itself. My nerves can be on 🔥 one day & uncomfortably numb the next. But not every day or every moment is like this. I live for the moments I have energy to do simple tasks, go on dates, or make myself feel beautiful or alive after days of wretching, pain, & misery. I don't say any of this because I feel I OWE an explanation for living my life, & I DEF don't want pity, I want people to understand. Things are not black & white. Mental health & physical ailments aren't always predictable or curable, we just learn to live our best lives around these obstacles. My photos from yesterday probably took an hour total (m/u & photos). I felt inspired, but I was racing against a clock; my pain was increasing each passing min. But I did it. & later that evening, I had a full on panic attack about my mom & my health. Then I ate a garbage plate w/ Thor, & then passed out. 🙏

Today was HARD! I am going to be honest. I didn't finish, I blacked out during one of the abs exercises with the sliders and bumped my head. But, I only had 14 mins left and I did more then I ever have. Now, I thought of taking tomorrow off but, no. I am going to push through. After doing more stretches, my neck isn't as stiff and my shoulders are feeling like burning pins and needles as much. So, I look at this as progress!

Normally don’t post this late at night but since I have a lot of my mind... here we go - Next Wednesday at 9:30 I go over a ton of tests results an pick what treatment to go with from here on out. That’s great! BUTTT I’m also so scared and nervous and I have no idea how to move through the next week and think about new things. - I just don’t know how to focus on work, or school, or even friends and family. I can’t stop thinking about what the blood work showed this time and what my doctors are going to say. Uggghh I wanna be positive about it all, but honestly, it kinda just sucks. 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ . . . . . #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniesupport #spooniestrong #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicillness #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicillnessawareness #endometriosis

Every day will not be a good day, that’s for sure. While we cannot control what type of day we will have, we can take a moment to try and reflect on something good in the day. When I’m having an especially rough day, I try to think of at least three positive things that I can be thankful for; even if it’s only my bed, it’s something to be thankful for! #fibromyalgia #fibrowarrior #fibromyalgiaawareness #fibromyalgiasucks #fibro #fibroflare #spoonie #chronicpain #chronicillness #pain #lyme #lymediseaseawareness #lymewarrior #lymedontkillmyvibe #lymeawareness #cfs #chronicfatigue #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicillnessawareness #peace #positivity #lupus #lupusawareness #lupuswarrior #rheumatoidarthritis #live #fight #positivequotes #positivevibes #positivethinking

👋🏻Hello! Got a burst of new followers recently so just to reintroduce myself - My name is Alex and art, illness (living with ME), memes and self deprecating jokes are what I’m all about! I use a mixture of all those things to help raise awareness and provide a small voice for those who live with chronic pain/illness. I’m a shy but sweet person and will try and make people smile and laugh as a way to bring joy into a situation that is the complete opposite. I’m very open and honest about everyday life, the good, the bad and the ugly so people know they are never alone. I have no clue what I’m doing with my future and so I must improvise. This is one way of doing so, and I’m very happy to welcome all the new people here in my little corner of the Internet 💖I look a lot cooler on here than in person, in person I’m a total mess🤪#yourachingart #aboutme #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #myalgicencephalomyelitis #meawareness #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicfatigue #cfs #cfsawareness #chronicmigraines #ibs #anxiety #depression #spoonie #spoonielife #invisibledisability #thoughts #feelings #emotions

Are you a late night snacker or frig raider? If you answered yes, it could spell trouble for your health. A recent study reported at the American Heart Association’s annual meeting that eating high-calorie meals after 6 P.M. significantly increases the risk for high blood pressure and high blood sugar levels that can lead to type 2 diabetes. People who eat more in the evening also have higher levels of inflammation, according to data from the University of California at San Diego. The more calories they ate between 5 P.M. and midnight, the higher their levels of C-reactive protein, which may warn of inflammation in the body that can harm the heart.⁣ ⁣ #healthyliving #healthyeating #healthychoices #healthylife #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #hearthealthy #diagnosed #chornicillnesslife #congestiveheartfailure #diabetesawareness #chronicillnesswarrior #heartfailure #hearthealth #hearthealing #heartdisease #chronicillnessawareness #type2diabetes #type2diabetic #butyoudontlooksick #chronicallyawesome #stresseating #functionalmedicine #holisticnurse #nursecoach #wellnesscoach #healthcoach #healthcoaching #healthconscious #lifecoach

I’d tell my younger self... You will get better. When I was a kid, I was always sickly. Age 11 I came down with glandular fever and it was all over from there. I spent my entire adolescence in the grips of severe and disabling ME/CFS. It still kills me how little weight those letters have in the face of a brutal and life destroying illness. I was bed bound often too weak even bathe myself. It felt like it would never end. I watched the usual teenage milestones pass me by as I went to places of the mind, body and soul most kids my age couldn’t comprehend. I became an old soul, yet inexperienced in life. I headed into my 20s still disabled by CFS and it seemed like the normal things: a job, relationships, friendships, family, would all pass me by. Little by little, and without really being able to put my finger on the turning point, I got better. My health still needs to be treated with care. But nowadays I would call myself recovered and able bodied. When I was younger, I couldn’t comprehend that I would dance again, have intense and beautiful friendships and relationships, have a child. I certainly couldn’t have imagined I’d be in the performing arts world that used to keep me company via my television screen when I was sick! I wish I could go back and reassure that frightened and suffering girl that I was going to have an amazing life. But I’d also like her to know: relationships and friendships aren’t everything. You learned through those lonely years that you were enough: your mind and your imagination. It seemed like you were missing out on the world. All you wanted then, more than anything, was someone to love you, and you imagined the man who would rescue you from my lonely sick bed. I wouldn’t have been able to comprehend how happy I could be in life as a single mum. How I’d find my own strength and feel it was enough. How a daughter can fill a place in your heart beyond imagining. I’d tell myself “no one will rescue you. Because you don’t need them to”. I am thankful for those long years of illness for shaping me into who I am. I was wrought in the fire of a body filled with pain and I survived and thrived. I celebrate that.

These few words sum up how I feel about my autoimmune disease. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hashimoto's has been debilitating in my life. It's stopped me from hanging out with friends, going on dates when I was single, working out and even going to work. It's made it very difficult to spend time on my projects or be a good partner to my fiance. It's stopped me from speaking up in meetings because I wasn't sure if my brain fog would kick in. It's stopped me from trusting in my own body when I know that my body is literally fighting itself at times. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ BUT ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My Hashimoto's has also been liberating. I've let go of friendships that didn't truly support me. I took care of my body in a way I never had before. I prioritized self-care. I quit jobs where my boss treated me like shit. I found a supportive partner. I found my true, true passion - to build a supportive community so no one has to feel as alone and confused as I have in the past. I know what is most important to me and I'm determined to get there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Autoimmune disease and chronic illness can be debilitating a LOT of the time and I understand that people have much different experiences than others. But I bet in some way, you can find a way that your illness made changes to your life that actually ended up being a positive change. And sometimes, just maybe ... we can focus on that part. ❤️

Ever find when you’re grouchy or in a bad mood, it seems like the world is against you? Or when you’re searching for flaws or passing judgment on yourself, you can’t help but scrutinize others in the same way? 💫 We’ve all been there, and if you find yourself in that rut, start by writing three things you love about yourself. Then three things you’re grateful for. Stick these in a place you can see them tomorrow and add onto them each day. Soon you’ll find more smiles meet yours and judgements gets replaced with compassion. Be the energy you want to attract, and it will come back to you 💛🌻

There have been multiple deaths due to endometriosis! "Imagine having a cancer that wont kill you" is all so wrong and false! Please spread the CORRECT information guys! If you dont believe me look up all the cases or message me and i will happily prove you wrong. Its a fact.

When your primary refers you to a specialist who refers you to a special-er specialist, who defers you to their assistant... at least they made an appointment with me😆 I at least know someone will see me soon lol. Somebody please cross your fingers for me or send out good vibes or say a prayer or whatever you do- that this is the right person to help me. Because when someone refers me to someone else specifically bc I am beyond what they can treat, and then I end up seeing someone else... it’s either really bad, or really great. I’m always hoping for really great! But I’ve had a lot of experience with seeing the wrong person and having things go poorly, so I do tend to get nervous. I am happy that I’ll be able to go see this new dr before my next follow up w/my PCP so I can tell her about the initial referral apt, and the referral from the referral and the deferral from there and how both apts went and what everyone said. I sure hope that made sense bc my brain is signing out for the day!😅🤪🥴 I hope everyone seeing new drs has the stamina to get through the appointment, and the courage to advocate for yourself whenever needed. You’re not complicated, your illnesses are. You are so much more than your illness(es). I think you’re an incredible warrior. An innovative thinker. An adapter. An overcomer. You’ve got this!💪 • BIG (soft) hugs to everyone💚💚💚 • #chronicillnessawareness #chronicpainawareness #complicatedillnesses #mybodyisadramaqueen #chronicovercomer #chronicwarrior #keeponkeepinon #countingeveryblessing #godsgotmyback #iwillmakeasilverliningwhenicannotseeone #toomanydoctors #justkeepswimming #mylyfeinpieces

Feeling good after a quick 24 hour trip to Houston to see my Lyme specialist. After dealing with some medical professionals that do not believe in Lyme earlier this week, it was validating to see my doctor and have her reaffirm my diagnosis. I’m heading to VA next week to see a new specialist in hopes of finding a treatment protocol that actually works for me (fingers crossed 🤞🏻). Traveling to find Lyme-literate doctors has ended up being a big part of my journey. Any other lymies out there have to travel to see their doctor? • • • • • • #splashoflyme #lymedisease #lyme #lymediseaseawareness #lymedontkillmyvibe #lymewarrior #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicillnessawareness #autoimmunedisease #travelforhealth #lymeisreal #mentalhealthawareness #fibromyalgia #potssyndrome #anxietyrelief #roadtrip #lymediseasespecialist #lymeliterate #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieproblems #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicillnessblogger #lymeblogger

Not the best picture but this is reality of what we go through. I got my eval from when I was at CHOP. Most of what I got is that I need to drink more fluids, go to PT, and see a psychiatrist to get better anti-depressant or anti-anxiety meds. The only trouble with this is that the do not have a huge plan for my stomach because without helping my GI tract I will not be able to take in more fluids. One of the only problems is that they did talk about bringing in someone from the Eating Disorder Clinic which made me really upset because I do not have an eating disorder I have delayed gastric emptying. ✨ 🦓 I am going to be starting PT soon. The person I met is knowledgable about EDS and POTS which means a lot because so little people in Vegas know about either of those. I am hoping PT could do something for me but I do not have the best luck with past times that I tried some sort of exercise (I have done both PT and pilates). He is even contacting the physical therapist I met in CHOP because she specializes in EDS and PT so that he can get an idea of what she does in Philly! ✨ ♿️ Currently going through a mini stomach flare up and a horrible neck flare up (even though my neck is constantly hurting) so I got trigger points done to try and help my neck but to no avail 😪 Trying to stay positive. If anyone ever needs anything, do not hesitate to message me. 💘✨💪🏼

🌅 MORNING MUSINGS 🌅 The morning has steered its way into my day. There is the sparkling glint of sunshine around the edges of my blind. ☀️ I am blessed with this view as it appears today I may sit and do what I do best. How different life seems to me on a day when wellness rises and there is no severe and obscure symptom of illness to darken and fog my view. ☀️ Right now, in these morning moments I am convincing myself that the whole damn universe, that dances around me is still there. The last four days I doubted it but even when I can’t see it, feel it or find it.....it is there supporting every cell of my being. ☀️ I know I still feel anxious about many things ~ failures, promises, and to be perfectly honest, nothing feels worse to me than not fulfilling commitments or having a dirty house. But, I know these anxieties are things to get over. ☀️ The universe is there,always prodding, coercing and uncovering meanings for why I must step up to the plate, to serve and seek hope for the great many that battle debilitating mental health conditions on a daily basis. . . #just1woman #just1womanfoundation #morningmusings #awake #journalentry #writing #surviving #thriving #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #suicide #suicideawareness #suicideprevention #healing #recovery #mindfulnessfacilitator #mindfulness #holdingspace #breathingin #believingisseeing #seetheuniverse #knowtheuniverse #betheuniverse

Every time I talk to someone about endometriosis for the first time, I wait with baited breath for this sentence.. yeah, I’m sure your periods hurt too, but this isn’t a competition and I’m trying to talk to you about something that affects my day to day life. Something that affects so many women, but is still unheard of my so many people. So I get it, your period does hurt too, and sometimes you have to take painkillers, but until you have to go to the urgent care centre, take a day off work or regularly rearrange your life around your period please don’t turn period pain into a competition. Listen to your friend who is opening up to you about something that affects them every single day, lend a sympathetic ear and remember what they say. Endometriosis affects 10% of women, the odds that you know multiple women who suffer are fairly strong (I only learnt this after I started talking about it to people, and they said they’d been diagnosed too) and there will be times that they need your support and understanding. So please don’t turn discussions about endometriosis is a pissing contest, it is already dismissed far too often as “just a bad period” . 📷: @endoeducation . . . . . #endo #endoawareness #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #endoeducation #adenomyosis #adenomyosisawareness #adenomyosissucks #periodpain #periodpainsucks #endosucks #endostrong #endopain #endoflare #endosupport #discoverunder5k #supportyourgirlgang #blogger #endoblog #endoblogger #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #butyoudontlooksick #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #rant #endorant #notjustabadperiod #endoflareup

Some days are hard work, like wading through treacle. You're physically, mentally and/or emotionally drained. You just want to curl up and hide. Forget that the world exists. And guess what?! THAT'S OKAY!!! These days are more likely to come around when we've lost touch with ourselves. We're perhaps caught in a self-perpetuating busy-tired-emotional cycle that's often fuelled by underlying stress which prevents us from connecting with our true, authentic self. Often, the more emotional we become the busier we make ourselves so that we don't have to sit and "be" with those difficult emotions. We shift away from our centre and our body and mind become fragmented and misaligned. We're out of sorts. The more we try to ignore it, the more imbalanced we become. When we push back against it, we exacerbate the issues further. It's an internal battle. So, what to do? STOP! Stop what you're doing, stop what you're thinking and LISTEN! Listen to how you're feeling. Listen to the voice behind your feelings. Listen to what's really there, underneath the "be strong" persona. More often than not, it's a younger, more vulnerable part of ourselves that needs our attention. He/she is likely to be scared and alone. He/she needs you more than ever. This is me, on one of those days recently. I stopped, listened and heard my inner-child. She was young and fragile. She wanted to find a safe space in which she could retreat from the world. Space to relax and switch off from societal pressures. Space to let go of the person everyone else wants her to be so that she can just be her raw, authentic self. Space to be. Space to breathe. Once I had granted her that space, she was free. She wanted to sit and draw. And so I did just that. The drawings had a child-like innocence to them, and for that reason they were perfect. I had come home to myself. I was present. I was centred. I was bathing in deep peace. It was wonderful. . . . 📷jeff_murray_art

Trying to get through a day at the office. I'm exhausted, my gut hurts, my heart rate hasn't been under 98 and my hands keep shaking. 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ Why do I always have to push myself this much!? . . . . . #invisibleillness #undiagnosed #chronicillness #chronicpain #spoonie #illness #hospital #spoonie #fibromyalgia #raredisease #livingwithchronicillness #autoimmunehepatitis #aih #doilooksick #butwedontlooksick #chronicpainwarrior #chronicloveclub #sick #gleichsyndrome #eosinophilicdisease #chronicfatigue #adenomyosis #gastritis #migraines #chronicillnessawareness #invisiblefight #autoimmunedisease #butyoudontlooksick #gerd

POTS. Something I’m sure you’ve seen me tag- but probably don’t know much about. It stands for Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome and it’s part of what I’m currently battling. Basically, my heart rate rises 30 to 40 beats per minute persistently upon standing up. It’s not just your typical “head rush”. It lasts the duration of most of my activities and often affects me more than or as much as CFS/ME. What does it look like? It means I can’t stand or walk for long periods of time, I randomly faint or fall over, and I experience abnormal blood pooling throughout my body. My heart often feels like it’s going to bounce out of my chest, and my limbs are numb and cold. To help relieve symptoms I need to make sure I’m drinking enough water consistently, and I’ve been working hard to try and increase my salt intake. Now that that’s out of the way- what’re your favourite salty snacks? I need to test them. 😋 #pots #potssyndrome #cfs #chronicillness #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicillnessawareness #chronicpainwarrior #spooniesupport #spooniecommunity #sheisnotlost #wherethetiredgirlsare #silentillness #sonya6000 #advancedselfie #storyportraits #halifaxblogger

Hello IG world! So, I realize I’ve been MIA since the beginning of the holidays, but I’m back! 2017 and 2018 brought huge changes to my life and the life of my family family. My Mom was diagnosed and beat breast cancer! She is now in remission!! I had 3 surgeries in 10 months. Two of which were major surgeries and all of them were taxing on my body. My Uncle passed away and it definitely left a hole in our life and hearts. My Grandma is now 92 and living in a care facility that can help with her daily needs. Needless to say, the holidays were different. Our family dynamic has changed. People we love were missing. I was worried that the holidays would be sad and lonely, but I was so wrong! 2018 also brought new family members to celebrate with and love. I guess I just needed a break to adjust to life’s changes. I needed to sit back, breathe, enjoy life, and love on my family. Now I’m back and ready to tackle 2019! I’m still striving to be the best, healthiest me that I can be 💪🏼💗 here we go!

Super proud of this man right here. Working long shifts until 10:30 at night, doing hours of homework afterward, then getting up early to go to class all day, and coming over to help make my chronically ill body feel better. Having a full-time job while finishing out his degree and being the most supportive boyfriend ever -- it's long nights of blood, sweat, and exhaustion, but he's pushing through day after day and I'm so proud of him. 👏🏼 #chronicpainwarrior

[F E A R S] Last weekend, I faced my fear of public speaking again and spoke in front of 200 people (it was only for 2 minutes but hey, more than zero 😜). My heart was pounding out of my chest and I felt like I could pass out any minute but what pushed me through was hope of being a voice for others in the room. I thought "If I didn’t speak, who would?" • After spending an intensive 2 days with these 200 other people who all committed to bettering themselves through yoga, meditation and sharing, I knew it was time to step up to say something on behalf of those who couldn’t. Those suffering with mental or physical illness, especially when it’s new or it’s too deep to bear to the world, will tend to keep it hidden within them because for now, that feels more safe. It’s scary to bring the thoughts and feelings to the surface, especially to a group of strangers. • I know what it’s like to feel that - the deep sense of overwhelm and the wave of tears the come on when you try to open up about what’s happening in the depths. It can be too much and too hard to share so I wanted to be that voice for the others like me who dealt with the same challenges. • If I hadn’t gotten over my fear, I wouldn’t have met a lovely young woman who has recently and fearfully been diagnosed with MS. I wouldn’t have sparked a conversation with an older woman about her struggles with depression and illness in the workplace. I wouldn’t have found out another person that I’ve known for a while is currently suffering in silence. They all reached out afterwards to say “thank you” for bringing these heavy topics into conversation. • If I hadn’t gotten over my fear, I wouldn’t have received the immeasurable love and support that I felt. • If I hadn’t gotten over my fear, I wouldn’t have been able to walk away from the retreat proud of what I had accomplished. • Remember to share your story - because you never know who needs to hear it. • Thank you @lululemon for giving us the opportunity to connect with ourselves, our community and to a purpose bigger than us as individuals. It was honour to attend the Purpose & Practice retreat 🙏🏼 • • 📷 @olgazwart #whatsyourwhy #heretobe #findyourpurpose

I dag har været kontrastfyldt. På mange måder. I morges stod den på dermatologisk afdeling, hvor den ene af mine allerbedste overlæger stod klar. Det var en akuttid og alligevel fik jeg en hel time med den fantastiske læge. Målet var at finde tegn på lupus i min hud, men efter en overordentlig og grundig gennemgang fandt hun ingen tegn til lupus (i denne omgang), men i stedet støttede hun reumatologernes mistanke til systemisk sklerodermi. Jeg har nogle forandringer hist og her og især noget på ryggen, benene, armene, hænderne og brystet. Hun fandt en del megakapillærer, der er kommet hastigt retur efter de var næsten bortvist af prednisolonen tidligere. Vi fik os en god snak, hun ville sørge for at få skrevet til min anden yndlings overlæge aka Dr. Feelgood og få ham til at sætte medicinsk behandling i gang hurtigst muligt. Så selvom det var en lettelse med en slags diagnose, selvom den ikke står på papiret (endnu) så var det sgu også en træls en af slagsen. Jeg har stadig sekundær lupus, men sclerodermien er så det dominerende træk, tror vi, tror de... 😰🙄😕😳 Altså, jeg var forberedt, men jeg har stadig så mange smerter i min krop og så meget dysfunktion i især mine fingre og knæ, så jeg beder til de snart finder noget til mig! Det gør de også. Så midt i glæden over, at nu var jeg da så kommet SÅ langt, så kom følelsen af “Hvad nu?”, “Hvad skal der så ske?”, “Hvor ender det her henne?”, “Holder det nogensinde op med at gøre så forbistret ondt i mine led?”. Aftensmaden i dag var en omgang grøn smoothie med alt muligt godt og sundt i og så en omgang is, under min dyne på min sofa. Ind i mellem smiler jeg, ind i mellem græder jeg et par glædestårer kombineret med sorgfuldetårer, for jeg synes sgu ikke jeg behøvede mere i mit liv. Jeg skal nu nok vise den krop, hvem der bestemmer. Ja, jeg skal! ❤️💪🏻😅#myimmunesystemattacksitselfwhatsyoursuperpower #ssc #lupus #etsygtliv #syg #ill #chronicillnessawareness #kontraster #kontrastfyldt #mærkeligdag #jegskalnokkommeigennemdet #drfeelgood #dermatologiskafdeling #aarhusuniversitetshospital #fuckingsickness #thistooshallpass #derkommerendag #medicin #medicine #smoothie #probelmermedmaven #is #ice

This is where the vein blew, you can’t see but it’s also super swollen. Throughout this whole ordeal, I only cried once in the hospital (and a bit on my way to the ER the first time but mainly bc I was fed up/tired and didn’t think they’d help me). I just broke down. It hurt, it was scary seeing blood squirt out. I know now it wasn’t a big deal, but I was so out of it. I don’t even know what I’m saying I’m exhausted and crashing again. The IV fluids woke me up for a little but I’m coming down now. They actually made me feel so good I think suffering thru the pain to get the iv in was wayyy worth it. — #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieprobs #spoonieproblems #spooniewarrior #spooniecommunity #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #chronicpain #chronicpainawareness #chronicpainwarrior #ibs #oralallergysyndrome #chronicmigraines #medicalmystery #chronicfatigue #fibromyalgia #fibrowarrior #pots #mentalhealthawareness #autismawareness #autismacceptance

I swear I said no, not hoe. Gotta love voicecracks🤷‍♀️😂 Oh shit uh inspirational messages really aren’t my thing but I tried — I’ll probably delete this — These last couple days have been rough. It wasn’t the worst pain I’ve ever been in, but it was up there. And it was so hard mentally. Not knowing what they were injecting In me, not knowing why I was in pain, not knowing if I would need surgery. But y’know I survived I’m alright. You’ll survive this too — #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieprobs #spoonieproblems #spooniewarrior #spooniecommunity #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #chronicpain #chronicpainawareness #chronicpainwarrior #ibs #oralallergysyndrome #chronicmigraines #medicalmystery #chronicfatigue #fibromyalgia #fibrowarrior #pots #mentalhealthawareness #autismawareness #autismacceptance

Thanks so much to @theohhf to choosing me to be their Wednesday Warrior. Please check out their insta page and website - the OHHF do fantastic work to fight CHD and strengthening heart families. ❤️💙 . Posted @withrepost • @theohhf SO excited to share with you this week’s Wednesday Warrior ❤️ All the way from Australia 🇦🇺 this is Elle- “My name is Elle; I was born in 1983 in Canberra Australia and have had 5 open-heart surgeries.  I’m sure that got your attention! - It usually works at parties. It’s also a big crowd pleaser at the local country pub where I’ve been a proud member of the ‘zipper club’ since I was 3 days old. I was born with pulmonary atresia and intact septum with a leaky mitral valve. In English, this means that the connection from my heart to my lungs was “blocked” as one of the four normal heart valves never opened up – and one of the other heart valves was leaky. Also, one of the pumping chambers of the heart was much smaller than normal; the one under the missing valve. Despite living with CHD I live my life to the fullest when I’m well. I’ve travelled the world, studied a Master degree, worked in challenging and high profile jobs, and married the love of my life. While there is no cure for this chronic condition there is so much hope for your CHD children.” Wow- goose bumps ❤️❤️. . . . #chdwarrior #heartwarrior #heartmonth #spreadawareness #chdawareness #love #wednesdaywarrior #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #chd

after my recent hospital stay, I started thinking about how complicated my medical history is, and how important it is to have it with me all the time. • in an emergency I wouldn't be in the position of spending ages going through everything, and that means important details could get missed. so after someone on YouTube mentioned her Medical ID/Alert bracelet, I decided it would be a good idea to have a look for one. • I decided to look on Amazon because I'm more comfortable using that rather than a random website, and eventually settled on one that stopped being sold before I could buy it. 🙄 so I kept searching, and I found this one with a gorgeous chain. • the company that sells it makes really gorgeous options, instead of the plain and ugly traditional choices. it only cost £14.99 and had the perfect amount of space for everything I wanted to put on it! I love it so much, and I'm so happy with it ♥️😍 • Medical ID/Alert Bracelets are a really smart idea if you have any type of chronic or long-term condition, or take lots of medication. It's also important to have one if you're a parent, carer or partner of someone with lots of illnesses to make sure they're looked after. • if you're thinking of getting a Medical ID/Alert Bracelet, I really do recommend this company because it's really cheap but amazing quality and it also comes with a lifetime warranty. • {The image description is in the comments}

I've managed to accumulate enough spoons over the last few days with lectures being cancelled and stuff to spend tonight with my flatmates having a party for our friends 20th birthday. I'm hoping I can last all night, but likely its in our flat so I can go hide in my room if I feel too bad. It's nice to be able to socialise for once without being exhausted. I've got the next few days to recover so this is perfect timing. First time in ages I've done my makeup, and I feel good. It's just a simply brown smokey eye with a bit of red, and a pink lip with a metallic gloss on top. #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #chroniclife #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicdisease #me #myalgicencephalomyelitis #chronicfatiguesyndrome #invisibleillness #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieproblems #makeup #eyeshadow #party #makeupslaves #lipstick #beauty #beautiful

Just a lil something that’s come along 💪 ⠀ And I mean me. Holy crap. I’ve come along. ⠀ I’ve always been strong af, just not physically for most of my life. ⠀ In the past few years, I’ve finally found a combination of treatments that controls my #cfs /#fibromaylgia type symptoms (those aren’t actually helpful diagnoses, they are groups of symptoms without a cause.) ⠀ Now in the past few months I’ve been in therapy helping to shed light on so many samskaras, that I’ve been able to work through in my practice and with the help of my sangha, community. I feel so much lighter and more capable. ⠀ So yes this asana type thing is v cool, but it’s just that I’m practicing here and doing all the things - getting to live & share yoga in NYC, and I’m so, so grateful for all of it. ❤️✨ (please check out stories for something beautiful) ⠀ @pureAOP #pureaop #ashtangayoga #yogajourney #myyogapractice #handstandstuff #nycyoga #realdopeyoga #spoonieyoga #spooniehope #chronicillnessawareness #yourealreadystrong #staystrong

🗣 Say it again louder for the people in the back 🗣 . The World Health Organisation classifies M.E as a neurological condition, NOT a psychological one and says that “the symptoms can be as disabling as multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis & congestive heart failure”. . In spite of this, the only treatment currently being offered is CBT and antidepressants. 🤔 It’s just not good enough, and it’s why I choose to advocate for better funding, awareness and biomedical research. . . #myalgicencephalomyelitis #meawareness #pwme #mecfs #millionsmissing #spoonie #thespooniesisterhood #actionforme #sciencenotstigma #biomedicalresearch #doctorsofinstagram #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #myalgicencephalomyelitisawareness #chronicillness #cureme #meaction

This right here has been a life saver for me. Those of you with POTS will understand the constant need for hydration and electrolytes as our bodies don’t hold onto many important minerals such as potassium and sodium. Banana Bag Oral Solution is a miracle yellow powder that dissolves in water and is packed with vitamins and minerals. It has helped me avoid hospital visits for IV because of dehydration, it helps stabilize my blood pressure, helps with brain fog and keeps my mineral and vitamin intake on track. And for those of you who are lucky enough not to worry about health issues this is a magical cure for a hangover!!! It also works great during flu season and on hot summer days when you aren’t hydrating enough. This stuff works! And I’m so grateful it exists! Thanks @bananabagsolution (I am not affiliated with them, nor do I receive anything for promoting this product. I am just sharing because I believe in this stuff.)
