First time I got dressed and left the house since I got home from hospital. Put me in agony though and I was barely able to get out of bed yesterday. Hope this gets easier soon 🤞

This was supposed to be a great morning. I was supposed to feel rested & pain-free...but that's not the case 😑 I need to cancel all of my appointments & get back to bed. Last week, I felt a bit better & was convinced that my #mecfs or #fibromyalgia symptoms were getting better. I thought I could slowly plan my life ahead & have at least a liitle bit of excitement associated with it... Set backs like these make me to questions all of my efforts to try to get better. #chronicillnes #invisible #chronicpain #spoonie #selfcare #tired #fibromyalgia #endometriosis #womenshealth #activism #healthactivism #women #uterus #mecfs #fibromyalgia

@Regran_ed from @rebelthriver - Self imposed prison. It’s crazy when you think about it, isn’t it? When we break free and stop giving a [email protected]#% about how others see us, and what they think of us etc...it’s the sweetest freedom imaginable. All that wasted energy trying to maintain a facade, and be something you’re not, can now be freed to use towards living the life you’re meant to live, surrounded by people who connect with the real you. You can find your peace and live your bliss. Just simply BE YOU!! Proudly and unapologetically YOU! 🦋Leila #kierkegaard#beyou#beyourself#liveauthentically#thrive#beyoutiful#freedom#bereal#warriorspirit#inspirationalquotes#chronicillness#rebelthriver#encouragement#mentalhealth#wordstoliveby#instadaily#empath#reiki#soulwork#healing#lightworker#chronicpain#yoga#loveandlight#survivors#domesticviolence#peaceandlove#ptsd#spirituality www.facebook.com/rebelthrivers

I’m just having a mug of cbd infused coffee before I go to my #osteopath about my shoulder. Muscles trapped somewhere and giving immense pain down my left arm with pins and needles. Hopefully she can release it for me. ☕️ ☕️ ☕️ ☕️ #shoulderpain #physio #painrelief #chronicpain #osteopathy #arthritis #adenomyosis #backpain #endometriosis #cbd #cbdcoffee ##chronicillness #cleaneating #nutrition #ptsd #invisibleillness #seizures #fitness #fibromyalgia #osteoarthritis #lowerbackpain #spoonie

Sweet potato cake❤️ It was very good. Recently, I have severe pain, so I can't roll over while sleeping. Because I spend the whole night in the same posture (lying on my back), the pain when I wake up in the morning is very bad😵It hurts → I can't move → It hurts more…This is a vicious circle of pain. How can I escape from that circle? Should I sleep on a lot of cushions?😌I wish there was a person who will help me roll over. No, I wish the pain went away. #おやつ #スイートポテト #ケーキ #コンビニスイーツ #ローソン #sweetpotato #線維筋痛症 #fibromyalgia #fibromyalgiaawareness #chronicpain

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 #good #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

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!

It still surprises me that the smallest movements can cause a horribly painful lower back flare-up🙁 *sigh*, so more sitting down doing nothing (except painting and sketching of course!) Okay so I think this could be one of my favs I've done so far! I always put down my lightest pigment first and work my way out from the lightest part of the paper. Funnily enough I dont use paynes grey/black for the darkest parts, I use my Moonglow! 🙌💕💜💙💚💛🎨🖌✒🌌🕉✌ * * #watercolor #art #watercolorpainting #watercolors #watercolorart #arttherapy #chronicpain #chronicillness #lowerbackpain #bulgingdisc #ink #pendrawing #drawing #mountains #mountaindrawing #artline #pain #chronic #artoftheday #instaart #instagramart #artofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #designsofinstagram #artoftheday #artist

With rain sometimes there is a rainbow 🌈 I took this photo while Adam was driving me home yesterday. On my way to work and know it's going to be a busy day as I'm spending half of it at a Senior Management Training forum. So will have to make up for that time lost this afternoon. Going to try and pace myself today as I'm struggling with pain across my back and shoulders. I feel more rested after taking it easy over the weekend but it's just whether this gets me through the week ❤ #rainyday #rainbow #work #chronicpain #sober #recovery #bpd #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #mentalhealth

After a wonderful night of laughs and celebration as I hosted the annual Chrissy Do with friends It’s rather hard to believe it’s only a week ago I was in hospital from complications of cortisone. ————————————————————————— In recent times, I’ve struggled around this time of year as everyone around me had everything to be thankful for but for me it’s been a cold reminder of what my life has crumbled into. But this year is different! I’m so thankful to have discovered my warrior within, exposing a level of resilience I never knew I had, a new and improved mindset but most important I’m creating a new life beyond chronic illness; a life I want and deserve! ————————————— ————————————— I now appreciate I’ve got so many reasons to be thankful for this festive season. I’ve taken control of my health and ultimately my life. All by myself I’ve taken myself off another yucky opiate, taking me from over 10 to just 2. I’ve got a grip on some very bad food habits which formed overtime due to poor health and consequently a poor frame of mind. I am so blessed and thankful for my friends; I have the strongest support network to date, making my friends some of the most important people in my life. Stronger and determined more than ever before my health is ever so slowly turning around, ultimately improving every aspect of my life. Slowly I am truly starting to love life again and that makes me feel so blessed and thankful! #chronicillness #chronic #illness #chronicpain #heal #healing #friend #friendship #support #grateful #blessed #thankful #celebrate #christmas #festive #festiveseason #festivities #lifestyleblogger #determination #goals #lifestylechange #gettinghealthy #happiness #family

being chronically ill means i have so many more pictures of my insides than most people do. the spine is such a beautiful, broken piece of artistry. this MRI was taken just before surgery in order to determine that the severe pain in my leg wasn’t something that would affect surgery. results discovered that i have a torn labrum in my hip - the cartilage that keeps the hip bone from rubbing against the pelvis. there’s a small cyst in there, likely a result of the tear, and the bone in the socket is being worn away - but that’s a problem for a different doctor. #mri #chronicillness #chronicpain #ehlersdanlossyndrome #hysterectomyrecovery

I can’t sleep, so I’m going to tell you a story. This is a picture of my grandma, grandpa (who has passed and I miss dearly) and I on my high school graduation day. June 1st, 2008 I graduated high school. I remember this day very clearly because I had surgery right before graduation and unfortunately was still on crutches at my graduation. I remember it was so hard for me because it was outside and the ceremony was on the football field and let’s just say, I was wearing a dress and gown and hat and hobbling around. It was so hard and I remember being embarrassed. I was already known for being the girl who was always having surgery, and my very last day was my birthday and a hard day for me to get through physically, honestly. I graduated broken and it was a weird reflection into my future, while everyone else was worried about college, I was worried about getting through my next surgery and staying sane. And now that I think about it, my high school didn’t offer any kind of accommodations for me and I walked my butt onto that football field, then sat through the ceremony, walked onto that stage very carefully on crutches, got my diploma, and walked back to my seat. I forget how big my graduating class was but it was a really big school in the northwest suburbs. So enjoy this picture of me on graduation day with my adorable grandparents 💕💕 . . . . . * * #grandparents #crutches #crutchlife #spoonie #chronicillness #chronicpain #fibrousdysplasia #fibrousdysplasiafoundation #fd #fdwarrior #fdwarriors #pain #warrior

. ☆ Girl on a mission ☆ . . Ik rol vol spanning op mijn doel af. We zijn gisteren naar Alkmaar vertrokken (met overnachting want heen en terug rijden op 1 dag lukt mij niet) en vandaag hoop ik hier een aangepaste ligfiets-hometrainer te kunnen kopen. Al een jaar oefen ik tevergeefs met roeien. Ik kom niet verder dan 2x per week 1.09 minuten te fietsen, met heel erg veel pijn. Op de fiets die we vandaag gaan uitproberen kon ik het 2.40 minuten. Dat is natuurlijk nog steeds erg kort, maar het is toch zeker ruim een verdubbeling 👏🏻 De afspraak staat al weken, ik denk er elke dag aan! Wie weet heb ik straks iets in handen waarmee ik langzaam op zou kunnen bouwen 🙏 #highhopes #opgevenisgeenoptie #theonlywayisup #positiefdenken #revalideren #scootmobiel #roadtrip #alkmaar #staypositive #hoop #bekkenpijn #bekkeninstabiliteit #chronischepijn #4x4 #theyseemerollin #rehabilitation #momlife #chronicpain

#decemberreflections2018 Biggest challenge of 2018. Chronic migraine. Not my usual one or two a month. March I had 10 in the one month. This gradually increased to 17 in September and 18 in October 🤯 Thankfully I found a great neurologist, started prophylactic medication that seems to be helping, & had 8 in all of November 👏💪 it has been a humbling & shitty experience. . . . . . . . #chronicillness #chronicmigraines #chronicmigraine #chronicpain #itsbeenrough #gettingbetterthough

Hello new followers! Thanks for joining me on my journey. A few quickies about me: I’m based in California, and... fibromyalgia, recently single, lost job due to greedy af CEO embezzling millions $$$, plus I moved back in with my mom. Wait, why is Charlotte smiling? That sounds like a shitty life... well... it’s not. Your attitude makes it shit- you have a choice. I choose joy (most days). ♥️ I have fibromyalgia, diagnosed 2 months ago and on the path to healing. I am a “do-er” and this thing is kicking my ass to be in the moment, breathe, relax. Maybe in a way, it’s exactly what I need for my journey. Working on accepting it. I have many other things too- bipolar, recovering alcoholic 2.75 years, recovered from anxiety. ♥️ For those that don’t know, fibromyalgia is incurable and lifelong. It is classified as a neurological disorder but the medical community knows shit about it. FM feels like being hit by a truck and no matter what I do today, tomorrow could be better or worse. I’ve been experiencing these symptoms for at least a year, but since my diagnosis, I am finally learning healthier coping mechanisms and little tricks to improve the quality of my life. ♥️ Shout out: My little rescue dog Buddy is forking amazing and he has a very modest Instagram: @buddysavestheworld ♥️ I recently lost my job because the CEO was greedy and stole millions and millions. While I am devastated I lost my work family- nearly 100 employees all lost our jobs over night, including the last 3 weeks of pay that we worked- I am thankful for this opportunity to investigate my true passions. Broke af, pissed at the CEO, and resentful as hell. But today I prayed for the CEO, because only someone so sick—spiritual, emotionally and mentally—could jeopardize our livelihoods and thousands of our customers financial well-being (he literally screwed over upwards of 15,000 to 25,000 people- that we know of). ♥️ Marketing is great, and what I’ve done mostly for the last 6 years. I went from $20, down to $18, up to $19, all the way to $28, back down to $20. I mention my wages because I believe in wage transparency (Watch Adam Ruins Everything episode about work on @netflix). It’s impossible

The isolation is so loud in the quiet that you feel as if you reached out the sound of shattering would meet your hand. When time and time again plans to meet people are canceled last minute if not ghosted, it can turn in a wall of the same sound. The one of your own voice counting all the times replaying every one, angry at you for hoping at all, questioning fantastical explanations, hearing every negative feedback you've ever gotten, circling on the 'certain' fear in the back of your mind it's all because you did wrong by who you are and no one really wants to be around you or have anything to do with you much less help you. Is it true? No. For some people who know you? Probably. But most really are just getting ping-ponged through life and are overwhelmed at being the ball instead of on it. Just as most others really don't understand you or what you're going through, same is true visa versa. Thinking about the reality that everyone is in helps ease the loneliness. That's a layer thinner out of that wall, one step closer to breaking through it. Art is a useful tool. When I first started to draw again two years ago, I still couldn't curl in a ball for comfort due to torso pains. Nor could I grip a pen for long without the muscles used burning and adding to the abdominal pain. But distracted by strong enough music (and sake to numb the pains) I was able to draw me doing what I really wanted to. Then when I needed to ball, I could focus on the cartoon me getting to. It was rough and no where near the level I used to draw before which was hard but it was enough and worth it. Have you drawn or made through art something you wished you could do and imagining so gave you comfort? #isolation #negativethoughts #walls #breakthrough #invisibleillness #chronicpain #lonliness #art #healing
