Sometimes,
Fighting and pushing through
Need to cease.
As resting,
And giving ourselves peace
Is just as important.

Throwin it back to February, when I was feeling a whole lot better than I do now! I thought I'd post this because:
1. I've never posted it; and
2. I'm fully clothed and done up - I've posted waaaay too many photos of me in my pyjamas lately!!
Fatigue was my biggest problem, but I managed to make it through a day of work, hair & makeup, and an entire charity ball!! It does make it easier when you're with some of your favourite people ๐Ÿ’œ

This is me doing a little happy dance (in my mind whilst led in bed ๐Ÿ˜‚) as tomorrow I'm going to see one of my best friends who lives about an hour and a half away on the train ๐Ÿ’– I have lost friends with the illness but I have also learnt that I have some of the most amazing friends I could ask for. I have friends check up on me every day, friends who haven't given up on me even though I cancel plans or can't make plans until nearer the time, friends who have had to put up with me sulking and friends who at the drop of a hat will help me and Alice out ๐Ÿ’• oh and I have also made so many new friends too, through Instagram, support groups, coffee mornings etc....I feel incredibly lucky and so grateful ๐Ÿ’– #friends #friendship #chronicfatigue #chronicillness #spoonielife #spoonie #life #friendshipgoals #happydance #lucky #grateful #thankful #myalgicencephalomyelitis #me #cfs #mecfs #cfsme #chronicillness #staystrong #strong #warrior #fighter #strength #thisgirlcan

Another day of bedrest with this wee dote for company ๐Ÿ˜Šjust looking at that beautiful greying wee face will make you smile regardless of how you feel! And damn I feel ๐Ÿ’ฉso I need all the smiles!
Hope you folks all have a low symptom day and enjoy the weather if you can. It's actually sunny and warm here again which is pretty rare for Ireland! Fingers crossed it's the same again tomorrow for our last family day out โ˜€๏ธ

New smoothie bowl recipe this morning - cacao, mint and raspberry with 3 different veg thrown in. Need to increase the raspberry a bit but the mint came through beautifully.

Super personal Lemon Aid, For Ma Ladies- Hair Loss & Thinning Locks... In this Lemon Aid, I acknowledge the common, yet NEVER discussed issue of female hair thinning and hair loss- something I've dealt with and actually come back from! I give my point of view of losing the texture in my hair and it thinning a year or so ago, out of nowhere, and what factored into that, the steps taken to figure out the root of the issue and what I learned in the process of regaining my curls... You're not alone Ladies! #lemongrovepodcast #lemons #healthpodcast

Post #2 of 2 ~ This photo collage is shots of #meafterME . These are very difficult for me to share, but if people who are home & bed-bound with severe illness are missing from societies view, how will Awareness of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis spread & if I do not help show the face of ME, how will the cruelty of this illness ever be understood. Now I spend everyday lying flat or slightly propped up. On good days Iโ€™m able to spend 1/3 of the day on the couch in the living room around family & @baileybun_bun . On worse days I spend the full 24 hours in my dark, quiet bedroom alone. I still smile but smiling as big as I did before takes a lot of energy, energy I do not have. ๐Ÿ’™
Photos: (Left to right, then clockwise around)

1. Ice pack on forehead to cool my face, this happens daily, more so in the evenings. As Iโ€™ve overdone my face grows increasingly hot in a mask-like rash & redness, burning on my face. It feels like a sunburn & also worsens with photophobia, with artificial light as well as sunlight.
2. After a month of being unable to bathe/shower (only able to freshen up with baby wipes) I finally pushed myself to shower & this was afterword.
3. A typical photo of me asleep on the couch, holding Bun-Bun, wearing my sunglasses & earplugs.
4. I was trying out #snow filters & didnโ€™t realize how poorly I was doing until I saw this photo, exhaustion in my eyes, unable to properly hold my head up.
5. A photo of particularly severe mask-like redness that burned on my face.
6. This was a couple of days after Photo #2, still terribly suffering payback for the shower.
7. A typical sunny day for me, in sunglasses & earplugs to be able to be in the living room. With all curtains closed our living room is still light drenched. One of the reasons we bought our home. Little did we know, Iโ€™d be unable to tolerate it shortly after moving in.
8. A photo I sent Gabe one day, again not realizing how poorly I was doing until Gabe saw the photo & replied worried. โœจ๐Ÿ’™(See prior post 1 of 2 for #mebeforeME )

For #tbt Iโ€™m sharing 1 of 2 collages of photos, the first is of #mebeforeME . My active, outdoor, adventure-filled life. My story is not unique. The majority of people who come down with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS) lead highly active, adventurous lives. Yet another aspect of this illness that makes it all the more cruel. ๐Ÿ’™
Photos: (starting from top left to right, then clockwise down) Gabriel took most of them.
1. Running full speed in my wedding dress chasing & playing with our flower girl, @janebangham & my dad.
2. At the top of Mt. Hoffman, YNP looking down the back side.
3. Floating in our hot spring tub at my favorite getaway from Yosemite, Benton Hot Springs.
4. Iโ€™m standing on a rock in Convict Lake in front of Mt. Morrison on the East side in CA.
5. At the top of Mt. Hoffman, YNP looking down the front side.
6. Watching the sunset on the water near San Francisco.
7. On my 30th Birthday Gabe gave me this beautiful sewing machine!
8. Standing in the snow in Lost Arrow (YNP) where we lived at the time in a WOB (without bath, always a good sign when the place you live is named after what it doesnโ€™t have ๐Ÿ˜‰) with half dome in the background.
9. This is one of my all-time favorite photos! Gabe took it from the kayak pictured of me in our diamond bungalow on the water in Bora Bora on our honeymoon. โœจ *See the following post (2 of 2) for #meafterME ๐Ÿ’™

after years of unexplained frustrating symptoms i was officially diagnosed with lupus in september 2016. i plan to use this account to keep myself on track and accountable towards my wellness and also to perhaps offer a glimmer of hope to anyone struggling with chronic illness...sharing with my fellow lupies/spoonies via social media has brought me great comfort during some of my darkest lupus days and i hope to be able to contribute to the chronic illness community. we are in this together. #lupusawareness๐Ÿ’œ #chronicillness #chronicchillness #hashimotos #arthritis #migraineawareness #uctd #raynauds #chronicfatigue #lupuswarrior #walktoendlupusnow #spoonie

We get a lot more sunshine towards the summer!
.
Vitamin D is involved in many metabolisms in the body - acts like hormone, helps immune system, helps mineral absorption, etc.
.
Our body creates Vitamin D when it is exposed to direct sunlight for at least 20 mins several times a week.
.
Also, our body stores vitamin D if excess.
.
Even so, supplementing Vitamin D is also a good idea in order to achieve optimal levels.

Bought myself a #sunhat at @target! The reason I'm sharing this is because I have always hated myself in hats, but I actually liked this one! I wore it around the store I liked it so much!!! I also love how ironic the stitching is to me as a person with #seasonalaffectivedisorder, because I need the #sun.

Finally back to my normal self!
โ–ช๏ธโ–ช๏ธ I had to focus on finishing up the semester strong after Baja, and these past few days I've really tried to disconnect and get my center back. If you didn't know, flowers ๐ŸŒธ are one of the BEST ways to get your vibration back to a good level. Surround yourself with flowers, plants, herbs, anything from nature... They clean the energy around you. ๐Ÿ™ Obviously, I had to get mine from.@petalsandpopshop - how freaking gorgeous is this arrangement?! They never cease to amaze me.

Hello everyone,
For today I wished to talk about how you treat others. So often we are focused on how others treat us that we forget how we treat them. I can say from experience that when Iโ€™m not feeling good, everybody in my family knows it while my friends who text me most often wonโ€™t know it. I put on a smile for my friends but treat my family like shit sometimes. Thatโ€™s not a very good thing to do for them, or for myself. I get used to snapping when I should be polite and respectful and it bleeds into all the other areas of my life. If I snap at everyone in my family when they ask me to do something, I most likely will snap at someone else (like a friend) when I am asked to do something.
How you treat others is a reflection of how you are feeling physically, and it is also a statement of where your character is at. While it is okay to sometimes just have those bad days and want to be left alone, we should treat others with the same respect and courtesy we demand out of them. So often I find myself saying to myself โ€œWell they just donโ€™t get itโ€ and while that can be true sometimes, it isnโ€™t true all the time. Sometimes I just want to be left alone so I snap so they will go away, and that isnโ€™t okay to do.
Please remember the times someone snapped at you and how it made you feel, and remember that your family (or those closest to you) are the ones who take care of you and sacrifice their lives for you so please remember to be a little nicer even when the symptoms are kicking in.

Love learning! Fantastic presentations today on the importance of mitochondria (energy power source in our cells), With Angela and Adrian of Mediherb. Mitochondrial health is imperative for ALL, especially chronic illness patients with inflammation and fatigue.
Did you know there are 100,000 mitochondria in one womenโ€™s egg and just 16 in sperm. A baby will gain all of its mitochondria from Mum!
- Interesting to learn the correlation between high/ low levels of iron and thyroid T3 (thyroxine) hormones in hypothyroid conditions being associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. There are T3 receptors found in the mitochondria. There can be mitochondrial proton membrane leaks that can affect up to 25% of energy. Itโ€™s not surprising why CF patients find it so hard to regain their energy. If they also have a hypothyroid condition too, studies show this proton impermeability imbalance can be increased seven fold. This is valuable to know when treating chronic patients. - Learned a few missing links that I can now add to my complex patients jigsaw puzzles. - Now I am keen to go back and review a few cases and know what to look out for with new latest tests, and a fresh new view.

I was a little bit beaten up after my early morning functional chiro appointment. Dr. Kev had to pop a rib back into place which caused me pain like no other. He also used some sort of tool on my calves that I can only describe as something that looks like it's meant to take paint off of the wall... My hands are swollen from my sunburn and my tremor is back. So... I procrastinated.
But I got it done. My arm workout (plus crunches with a 10 pound plate behind my head) and my first run outside on my track in 2 years! (it was closed last summer because of renovations). I MUCH prefer running outside so this made me happy.
Pro tip (ha! I'm not a pro) - make sure you strike with a mid foot strike and not a heel strike. A lot of beginner runners do a heel strike but if you don't correct it and continue training that way it can lead to very painful bone spurs.

So this happened. I hesitated to share it but than the journey was such a fluke that I just have to share it with ya. Two years ago I was set to have a #colonoscopy. I was given all the prep stuff for it but I was in such bad shape with flare after flare that I couldnโ€™t get myself to do it or have the energy for the prep work so I let it go. So since you know Iโ€™ve had such issues with my stomach for so long, I finally decided that I really needed to see my gastro doc. Found out my dr wasnโ€™t available so I was referred to a new gastro. Boy, she got the ball rolling after I told her how bad my tummy was getting & all the cramping after eating, etc. Anyway, I thought I was going to have an endoscopy done. I was ready for it but it never dawned on me why the prep process was so different. It didnโ€™t hit me until I realized I wasnโ€™t going to be swishing the gagging solution prior to the endoscopy being done. Mind you, they repeatedly told me what I was having done but my mind just couldnโ€™t cling on to that fact. So just before the anesthesia took hold, I realized that I was having a colonoscopy. If it wasnโ€™t for my not knowing then I wouldโ€™ve raised the question to my dr & had an endoscopy done instead if I had realized it. After telling her all about my tummy issues, she felt something different was happening & thank you Creator, she did the colon thingy. The polyps were benign but they were precancerous adenomatous - adenomas. I was shocked. Things always happen for a reason & Iโ€™m so grateful for my #brainfog being in control. I know if Iโ€™d gone to my old doc, he wouldโ€™ve done an endoscopy โ€˜cause thatโ€™s all we ever concentrated on. I did have a colonoscopy in the 90โ€™s with him but itโ€™s just always been about my tummy. My daughter was so surprised when she realized that I had thought wrong, all I kept talking about was the endoscopy ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ. Anyways, it kinna put me in that โ€œwhat if I hadnโ€™t had this test done?...โ€ kinna mode ever since. The outcome of those thoughts is just too scary to think of so Iโ€™m awfully grateful that I have such an excellent new gastro dr. Whew! I love my old doc but like I said, things happen for a reason. Thank you Creator! So yeah, rather

When you deal with pain constantly, and you live in the states with crappy insurance, how do you decide to go to the hospital? How much pain is too much pain? When is it worth paying way more money than you have just for brief relief even when you know it wonโ€™t truly fix anything? Asking for a friend (my ovaries and entire abdomen.) ๐Ÿ˜‚

I finally bought seem epsom salt after seeing so many people talk about using it on here.

๐ŸฏBuilding a Holistic Pantry ๐Ÿฏ
Click the link in my bio to head to the Chronically Curious blog to read my newest post about building a holistic pantry!
.
It's taken me years of research and trial and error to find the best products to fill my pantry with. Now that I understand the importance of nutrient-dense food and how it supports reducing the symptoms of chronic illness and autoimmunity I try to encourage others to support their health through their nutrition.
.
Now that I've found things that work well for me, I'm sharing them with you in hopes that it will help others who are walking a similar path. While everyone can benefit from improving their nutrition, it's especially important for those who have chronic illnesses or autoimmune diseases.
.
If you feel overwhelmed by transitioning your pantry, I gotchu! In the post I talk about how to create a plan that's right for your life and your budget. I had very little extra money to spend when I started changing the way I eat, so it's taken time and patience to get to the place I'm at now. There's a way to make it work for any lifestyles or budget ๐Ÿ’•

Almost 9 months since I've removed my breast implants. .
Not a day goes by that I didnt wish I had did my research. So many times someone would mention it and I'd say, "oh no, I have saline. I'm safe". I wish I had done more research. I still struggle with a lot. But I just keep repeating to myself. That it takes time. And my life is 10 times better than it was. But.... It's the lack of Independence that kills me. Why do we do this to ourselves, when we beautiful just the way we were

Iโ€™ve been barley able to leave my house lately. Driving is a no go due to pain and fatigue. Just thinking about leaving my house causing anxiety. So many things could go wrong! Both my mental and physical health have been acting up lately. Every time I wake up I dry heave, every day Iโ€™m so exhausted I can barley leave my bed. The only time Iโ€™ve left my house is to go to group therapy or my boyfriends house and even thatโ€™s pretty much impossible most of the time. I feel bad. Iโ€™ve been neglecting everyone because of how tired I am. Iโ€™ve really been neglecting this account. Iโ€™m here tho Iโ€™m alive and I love you guys โค๏ธ-

Love this pic partly because my name is Danielle (like on the jar) and partly because this salad dressing was awesome! ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป for recipe โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”Iโ€™m a big fan of this dresser for two reasons: ๐Ÿฅ’1. I can dip cucumber in it (Cucumbers help the liver to remove impurities, waste, and completely eliminate accumulated toxins from your blood stream and gut. It allows the body to pass out more urine in order to remove toxins. Drinking cucumber beverages speed up the detoxification process.) ๐Ÿ‹2. Itโ€™s made with celery and lemons which Iโ€™m trying to get as much of as I can โœ”๏ธ Celery: boosts digestion and weight loss. In addition, celeryโ€™s high percentage of water and electrolytes can prevent dehydration (main cause of constipation) and act as a diuretic and reduce bloating. Otherย benefits include improved liver (reason Iโ€™m not losing weight! ๐Ÿ‘ฟ), skin, eyeย and cognitive health. โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”#medicalmedium #healthygut #health #chronicconstipation #chronicillness #chronicfatigue #medicalmedium28days #medicalmediumcleanse #medicalmediumprotocol #vegan #plantbaseddiet #vegetables #salad #saladdressing #applecidervinegar #acv #acvchallenge #gersontherapy #gerson

"My memory is lost in a violent fog,
As if I am seeing this world through a hurricane.
So much goes by so fast,
I fail to take it all in.
Just snippets distorted through my feeble eyes.
I can't repeat the things you said exactly,
just my perception of your sentiment.
Random pictures - sometimes just an emotion- diffuse in my mind,
without a date,
without a time,
without a script.

They become sacred fellowship for me and my God only,
If I wanted to, I couldn't share the detail of them.
These brilliant pictures that shine with clarity in the cell of my mind,
only escape my lips in fragments,
as though chewed by the teeth of my mortal flesh.
Thank You, Lord,
my Father,
my Holy One,
my Creator,
my King.
Thank You for this locked room,
This inability to take Your glory,
-for you will not give Your glory to another-
This inability to declare these beauties to the world as mine.
No, I bask in Your glory,
As I surrender to treasuring these things in my heart."
