Hashtags #ChronicIllness for Instagram

Moving houses has been exhausting. It’s been so hard having to mostly sit back and watch my stuff being out together by others because I’m too weak to do it myself.
I feel like my muscles are getting weaker and my doc is on holidays 😣 can’t wait to see her again because there are more and more things I wanna talk to her about.
This disease is taking over my body but I won’t let that stop me from smiling 🙂💁🏼‍♀️❌🐥 #endowarriors💛 #endometriosisawareness #endometriosisfighter #endofighter #pain #strong #sore #invisibleillness #chronicillness #chronicpain

On my way to a midsummer/summer solstice ritual led by my babe @vviolent_daisyy ☀️ This week has been challenging and the candida cleanse is still pretty intense, so I’m looking forward to getting out of Denton for the night!

Cienna: Living with multiple chronic illnesses is definitely a balancing act! Today concluded my week of testing at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale and I had my end week appointment with Dr. Goodman. We learned through testing that I have 3 different forms of POTS(postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome). We knew that I had hypovolemic POTS from my low blood volume, we found out that I had neuropathic POTS from autonomic nerve damage and neuropathy, and finally hyperadrenergic which basically means my body is always making too much adrenaline. Behind all of these we believe that my Sjögren’s syndrome is fueling the fire and causing these three types of POTS. We also found out through testing that I have esophageal dysmotility that is causing my food to get stuck, acid reflux, vomiting, and other symptoms. Most surprisingly this week we caught my breathing problems or lack of breathing during some of the autonomic testing. Dr. Goodman said he had never seen anything like it before and that he would be talking to all the leaders in his field to try and understand what is happening and how we can treat this! We talked today about a hopeful future with a better quality of life and maybe someday a future that includes no passing out! We have a great plan in place and already a 1-2 week return visit scheduled in August. I may be a complex case, but I am excited and confident that with my doctors at both the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, and with Piper’s help that there is a bright future ahead! #servicepuppiper #opietheservicedog #mayoclinic #dysautonomia #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #sjogrens #hiking #arizona #adventureawaits #sjogrens #esophagealdysmotility

#UpAndDressed with a pop of red. Headed out for a quick #DateNight last night just to get out of the four walls. Rather exhausted again today so trying to conserve my energy as @_davidroger has organised a mystery week away for our 25th wedding anniversary on Tuesday. .
.
Now to work out what to pack when I don't know our destination. The only information he'll give me is that I need something flash for 2 of the nights. Mystery packing for a mystery trip and celebration is a challenge.

The white shirt is a secondhand gift. The red tartin rockabilly dress is one I bought to wear at my eldest son's final photography exhibition a couple of years ago. I love the rich shade of red on the tartin. .

You don’t know pain until you’ve experienced this. And this isn’t your typical sized nose feeding tube. This is specifically to drain my stomach while i wait for the second surgery to insert the tube directly into my stomach. Don’t ask me why I’ve been waiting this entire week in the hospital for it to get done...leading me to get THIS tube placed again tonight. How do I continuously get so unlucky? Please keep the prayers coming! Xo

These trail mix granola bars are ready for my weekend adventures! 🏃‍♀️👟🏖️️ What are your weekend plans? I love no-bake energy bars that are quick to whip up and loaded with nuts, seeds, and superfoods. I included two powerful ingredients to support hormonal and metabolic health: maca and cinnamon, from @finlandiahealth plus drizzled with dark chocolate because we all know about my love affair with 🍫. #HealthYourself

With the AIP/Wahls Protocol, fermented foods are endorsed. Kambucha is a wonderful way to do that. Unfortunately, I hate kambucha. I have tried so many different kinds but I've finally found two that I actually enjoy.
The mango passion fruit one I can drink straight, but the blackberry one I add plain seltzer to and drink that way. Sadly the mango passion fruit one is not available at my local store, I have to travel about 20 min away to my local health food store. Worth the trip!

So. The week I've been dreading is dawning upon me, my bagpuss beanie has been in full swing tonight and I'm on my painkillers again to prepare for the impending doom that is shark week/endo flare week. I try to use skincare as a self care routine to distract me and help me focus on something else. These are some of the bits I enjoy using the most. I am 100% a @deciem addict and will never stop raving about how much benefit they've made to my skin. There are a few bits from The ordinary and also the Niod ranges that I'm missing but I can live without them for now. I didn't realise how much I'd need acids on my face until I used the 10% lactic acid. I'm chilling out in bed watching season 4 of the @pumprules and doing a slow pamper to help me wind down to sleep. #vanderpumprules #surrules #lalakent #queenlala #bossbitch #yesiwatchthis #skincare #skincareobsessed #deciem #theordinaryskincare #niod #hylamide #endowarrior #endometriosis #chronicpain #chronicillness #paindisorder #poorly #endosisters

🖤 Wake up. Pain has not subsided. Numbness has not set in. Yet here I am, despite it all, another day 🖤

Do you ever get caught in a vicious hoping/praying/nevermind others have it worse cycle? You want so badly to heal, but then you think of all the people who have it worse than you, and if they don’t heal, why should you? Why are you so special? I do it all the time. Or maybe there’s something in you that whispers that you deserve the pain. You don’t. The best advice I’ve been given to get over my hope block is to think of those in pain, wish for their healing too, and then continue to pray/hope/believe in yours. Your healing does not hurt anybody else. In fact, it will inspire them to hope for the same. No matter what you’ve done, you don’t deserve to live in pain. Release that. You deserve to heal. We all do. .

Migraine- 268283498- Ana- 0
This is not an “attention seeking post”, this is a reality post. I spent 7 days with a fever, sick with bronchitis, and stuck in bed for that entire time. I struggled through work this week barely even a person following my illness. The effort to open my eyes, get out of bed, put my scrubs on, brush my hair and teeth, make my cup of coffee, and walk out the door to drive the hour to my job... was the hardest thing I have had to do. I am exhausted beyond all measure. I am in pain physically, mentally and emotionally. 2 rounds of antibiotics and steroids to get me better. All to land me in the emergency room again, after suffering a migraine for more than 49 hours straight. Puking, nausea, upset stomach, diarrhea, sensitivity to light, sounds, smells, everything. Could barely hold my own head up it weighed down on me so badly from pain. I get sick, I suffer severely and most of the time NO ONE KNOWS THE DIFFERENCE. I could walk into work with a full blown migraine and my coworkers would never know that inside I am cringing with pain I can’t explain. Then there are days like today, and yesterday where I couldn’t even function. I couldn’t go to work. All I could do was lay on the bathroom floor crying my eyes out, holding my head and throwing up for hours upon hours. Stretching into two days of pure HELL AND AGONY. Finally. I had to break down and go to my least favorite place to seek help. Because sometimes you just have to go. I couldn’t stand the pain. I have depression and anxiety, add in this disease of migraines and you have one very sick woman. I was struggling within myself for days. Feeling like I’m not good enough, I’m not healthy, I’m not responsible or reliable to my job, I’m not a good girlfriend, I’m not a good friend, roommate, I’m not a good me. It makes you feel so much worse when you can’t stand your own self internally while you are suffering some of the most intense pain you can’t ease. I want to take a moment to thank the staff at Halifax Port Orange Hospital today for the EXCEPTIONAL care I received. #migraine #relief #sick #help #pain #depression #chronicillness #struggle #hospital #again #thankful #sad #uglytruth

Managed to get out the house today which was lovely, me and the family enjoyed a meal out together.... really need to be doing that more often
. .
May/June was pretty busy for me what with kids birthdays, appointments and clearing the house out, it set off a big flare for me but I seem to be coming out the other side of it now. My mental health has been on a bit of a downer recently to but I'm working through it with my doctor and trying to sort out the things I can to try and improve my situation. 🖤

A little wonky but not too bad considering I just started to learn how to crochet yesterday afternoon. Was good to keep my hands and mind busy while resting today.

Sometimes as sick people we stay at home on the coach (and that’s ok!), but since we’re chronically sick that’s not always the case. Sometimes we take risks knowing we will pay for it later with a “live in the moment” mentality. We run off adrenaline. We have fun. We live the life WE want to live, not the life our illness forces on us. Sometimes we go through “rebellious” phases where we ignore our illnesses and some of the (less important) rules that come with it. It never really works- our illness comes back with vengeance and ruins the illusion of normalcy- but maybe, just maybe, those few moments of life are worth it. We’re always sick, but we’re always human, too and that means we have lives that can be exciting and spontaneous at times. At the end of the day, the illness never leaves and the pain isn’t always worth the fun, but I’d like to think lifelong memories are priceless 💖 Sickness will never take away the fact that we have lives, and they are very much worth living to the fullest 😘

Sooo a couple of days ago this happy little box showed up at my door and had me movin’ and groovin’ in all the excitement 💃🏻🙌🏻💞 (white box was lunch leftovers. It wins #2 for excitement as it was DELISH).
.
I have yet to unbox it because 1) Trevin was home for his 2-day weekend when it arrived and I wanted to soak in my short time with him and 2) I wanted to create intentional space in my home and wellness routine for the shift I know is coming.
.
Not because I’ve tried all kinds of doTERRA products. But because the ones I HAVE tried have been so powerful.
.
And many of you have been here with me along the way. You’ve watched me go from bedridden for years to making huge shifts in the last year like driving myself, experiencing new levels of functionality, and starting a podcast where I share my passion for learning to be our best advocates in health, self/soul care and beyond (link in bio for the podcast 👂🏻)
.
I just know these oils are going to be such a powerful extension of that. To be integrated into my self care, emotional health, supporting my immune system and so. much. more. And I’ll share what I’m learning along the way, just like so many of you have with me 💛😘
.
I’m going to open it tonight, but the real question is....WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE INSIDE MY HAPPY MAIL?!?! (And did anyone else just read/hear Happy Meal right then? 😂)
.
P.S. a huge shout out to @rachelfusch who encouraged me to check out @hol_fit, saying she just felt I’d love her. And she wasn’t lying. Beyond excited to learn and grow even more from your glowing self and example, Ange 😘💞

Flying across country to Ohio in exactly TWO WEEKS! I should probably start packing now to avoid as much last minute flares as possible! I get so nervous with travel. So much medical stuff to remember. Out of my comfort zone. Plus, the whole process is entirely exhausting. I am especially worried that I'll get there and not be well enough to have all the fun I want to with my family. Drew will be there to help care for me, and my family will make whatever work. They are all laid back and supportive. Glad I realized I should start prepping now...it'll be here before I know it! At least I'm used to traveling with chronic illness; there were a lot of little hacks to learn. I can do this!🤞⏳✈️

Ladies and Gents, this is my least favorite thing. The plank. I mean, I’m not petite, this is a lot of weight to hold up. I found myself doing a lot of the move that will not be named today in my yoga flow and through the cursing I realized, “Hey, you’re holding these. You’re not falling to your knees. You’re not shaking... as quickly at least.” Well, would you look at that... progress 💪🏽 What is a non-scale victory that you’ve celebrated this week?

Thursday’s battle wound. Swelling and pain is finally gone. Bruising is starting to come out but it’s quite contained. The Nurse did well - only took one go, although she did have to go digging for a while one in. Spent a fair bit of time prepping and learnt yet another trick that may help with my ‘not so friendly’ veins. The dressings they used though - hurt like a bitch to come off! No matter how many times I tell them my skin reacts.
.
Now we play the waiting game.

We worked in boot desensitization today! First clip is after I progressed to all 4 paws having boots on, and the second clip is to just get some basic heel work training in with boots!
Raiden absolutely hates wearing boots and it took us about 2-3 weeks to get to this point! I’m hoping that by July, he’ll be able to do short walks with it on!

5:00 AM been trying to get off this RSD/CRPS bus since last night.
I pull the stop cord but the driver refuses to stop. So we just keep on down the pain tracks..... Everyday Americans abandon thousands of USA Pennies!
Unwanted, toss out, drop in the dark glove box, thrown into a change jar with other unwanted change even the bottom of the underwear drawer. But what’s worse? A penny found on the streets left for dead! Hundreds of thousands of #unwanted USA Pennies. W
But wait, what if those same unwanted pennies went directly to #CRPS research? Think about it? What if you found the LuckyPenny that finds the cure to CRPS the worlds most painful condition just laying on the street? A cure maybe? “Hey bend over and pick up that penny it makes cents!” #penny #luckypenny Guy #crps #crpsawareness #crpsresearch #everybitcounts #chronicpain #chronicillness #pain #nocure #findacure #SuicideDisease Will you help? #nocure #saved #onecent #USCent #warrior #positive #USA #Americans #understandingRSD/CRPS #movingforward

How do you get your veggies in? It may be easier to up your veggie intake than you think. Look for ways to add them to foods you’re already eating. Tonight, I’m making a pan of #paleo enchiladas, and I mixed in this “power mix” of kale, brussels sprouts, cabbage, and broccoli. The salsa and spices temper the flavor of the veggies (which can seem strong when you haven’t been eating them on the regular). If you’re into #glutenfree #grainfree enchiladas, get yourself some @sietefoods almond flour shells (they also offer coconut flour-chia or cassava shells, but I find the almond flour holds up best in this dish). And don’t be afraid to add your greens to various dishes!

Smoothie bowl (going to make it a frozen yogurt next time): banana cheesecake.

Banana, dry curd cottage cheese, collagen powder, pecans, honey, and ice cubes. Blend.

Next time I'll add dripped yogurt and freeze it.

Don't forget to protect your skin! Also this image is just too funny and reminds me of my best friend. We always manage to get burned during the summer when we go out together. (Tan lines for monthsssss). If you do manage to get a burn, my best tips are:
1: moisturize with aloe. If you can, use a leaf from an aloe vera plant. Aloe vera is antimicrobial so it will fight infections. It is also extremely moisturizing without suffocating the skin (which is important because you do not want to trap that heat in your skin!). It also helps skin to heal faster and works well specifically with burns.
2. Bathe in cold tea. I don't remember where I learned this but if you run a bath and throw some tea bags (green or black) and let it cool down before getting in, it will help soothe and heal your skin. You can also rub a wet tea bag on your burns but that is more difficult and may leave many spots untreated.
3. Continue to hydrate your skin even after all the heat has been given off and continue to use some sort of sun protection.
4. Make sure to hydrate yourself after a burn as well. Your body is fighting and needs all the hydration it can get! So eating water rich foods and drinking lots of water will help heal your burn faster.

Sometimes even when we find ourselves struggling. We tend to lose ourselves in the moment. However, other times when we see someone else struggling we go and lend them a hand 💕 whether that is distracting them, taking them out, being there for them, or making them laugh. .

Feeling pretty faded and tired today. It’s crazy how much energy it takes to fight a chronic illness! I’ve never been a coffee drinker and I used to joke about how I naturally had too much energy already. Now I wish I could harness some of that oy.
