#Repost @migrainespoonie with @repostsaveapp · · · From @thedailymigraine it’s how I feel most days. Life has definitely been a roller coaster since my migraines became chronic. I would not wish this pain on my worst enemy. I can’t go out as often as I like, or do the activities I used to love because it could cause a migraine, I have a migraine, or I’m coming off a migraine. Life is no longer simple. It revolves around my pain. I could no longer keep up in the program I was in, I was in the nursing program, because of my chronic migraines, and the up’s and down’s of failed preventative medication. So the life I ordered/wanted wasn’t possible at this time... I’m staying positive that one day I can go back into nursing school, and help others who feel the way I do 💜 for the mean time I am working on my BA in psychology with a minor in counselling #onedayatatime #life #currentlyoutofstock #nurse #nursingschool #nursingstudent #psychology #councelling #keepstudying #goals #migraine #chronicmigraines #migrainelife #migraineawareness #migrainewarrior #migrainespoonie #spoonie #spoons #chronicillness #chronicpain #pain #notjustaheadache #invisibleillness #fightinginvisiblebattles #staystrong #liveyourbestlife

One of my biggest strengths as a Naturopathic Doctor: I’m frugal 🤣⠀
.⠀
All joking aside, I do see this as an asset because often I see practitioners over ordering unnecessary tests costing thousands of dollars for no reason and over-prescribing nutriceuticals and/or supplements. (sad, but true 🤷🏻‍)⠀
.⠀
When this happens repeatedly for a client / patient they are then test-shy and/or nervous to then work with another practitioner because they don’t want to keep spending $$$$$, getting little, to zero results.⠀
.⠀
I personally don’t want people spending too much money on testing or products that are not necessary or you do not notice a difference from.⠀
.⠀
As a caveat, I like to run stool testing with giant price tags, however, I recommend them in an order of priority, given my clinical experience AND will only recommend them if I know that they are going to help us with your treatment plan.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
I want to know -- what has been your experience with testing?⠀

Not feeling great/not feeling much like drawing. Here's a real quick sketch of a very happy mouse to help me feel happy. I hope it helps you too xo

There are many signs and symptoms of substance use disorders. Some of them are easily recognizable, while some are not. In all cases, it is important to know when to get help, and that nobody is alone in their struggle. 🌼

This is how I've spent most of my day. This weather, endo flare up, stress, no energy. It's all just piled and I'm a puddle.

#truth I don’t watch tv as much right now. I have watched a few YouTube videos every day but they’re basic videos so not the drama tv shows generally have... plus they’re super short usually:) thanks vloggers Repost from @potsie_probs using @RepostRegramApp - #potssyndrome #potsie #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #potsie_probs #dysautonomia #dysautonomiaawareness #spoonie #spooniewarrior #youdontlooksick #youdontlookdisabled

Haven't updated in a while, unfortunately my symptoms have continued to worsen since the move, I just keep up hope that they start to potentially improve soon..
-
The past week has been spent laying on the couch under a heating blanket trying to get my bones and joints to stop aching and trying to lessen the nausea and sensory overload from the daily migraines.
-
Luckily I have Momo to keep me company, he has learned if he steps in front of me that I will usually stop whatever I am doing to give him attention and pets. Brendon says I am spoiling him. 😅
-
I finally completed my 30 day heart monitor and am waiting to hear back on the results from that to see if any of the fainting/blackout issues are heart related or brain related(like most of my previous doctors think).
-
Lately I have also really been struggling with worsened fatigue and muscle weakness to the point of not being able to hold my head up/grab things without dropping them.
-
Thankfully I finally got an appointment set up with a new primary care Dr. so I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will have some suggestions on what to do next regarding all my different symptoms and history.
-
The thing I am struggling with the most right now is trying to combat my frustrations that my limitations are so extreme and trying to fight the negative self talk that seeps into my mind.
-
Just trying to take it day by day.
💜💜💜

In transport to UCSF never thought I would be so excited to be in an ambulance. Thank you all for the prayers, shares, and donations. I've seen my dad a ton in my seizures trying to get me in the truck but I know if I get it that's it. Not yet dad, not yet. Love you all. .

January is national Thyroid Awareness Month. Listed in this picture are a lot of the issues I have dealt with over the last 6+ years of my life. After my diagnosis of hypothyroidism, my body decided that my thyroid was the sworn enemy & began to slowly kill it off. Sounds fun right?! I received my Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis diagnosis shortly after the hypo diagnosis. This disease has truly changed my life. I’ve had to accept a lot of hard realities & let go of dreams that I’ve had for as long as I can remember. It has taken me a LONG time to simply just feel human again. Some days something as simple as a sudden change in the weather or a stressful situation can make me feel as if I've been hit by a Mac Truck. I have off “days” that sometimes last weeks or months. I continued to fight with my body to gain control of my life back. I know that I'm beyond blessed for so many reasons & truly count my daily blessings. I’ve learned to appreciate my good days & listen to my body on the bad days. Throughout this journey I’ve lost friends as well as tarnished relationships with family members. Just know that every day, I’m fighting to live my best life possible. Some days are by far easier than others & some days I just have to rest. I am beyond thankful for those of you that have stuck with me, loved me unconditionally & tried to understand my life as it is now. I take everything one day at a time & I’m finally, really okay with that. I am so very blessed to have an amazing Husband & children who have supported me through the good, the bad & the very, very ugly.

Outgoing postcard to USA. sometimes I come across someone's profile and I don't know what card to send them or what quote to use. This person likes scary creepy, gross things so I picked this Woman in Sience postcard of a biologist as she worked with fruit flies other gross things. QUOTE: "I never kill insects. If I see aunt or spiders in the room, I pick them up and take them outside. Karma is everything". - Holly Vance

So I spent, and still spend a lot of time stuck in bed (I mean not really because I can't handle sitting around for too long, but you get what I'm trying to say). I used to feel really insecure about this because I'm a very "go go go" type of person, and I figured that the "sick days aren't pretty", "people don't need to see that", it doesn't paint me in a good light" blah blah blah... But I also try to be an honest person, which made me realise that I spend too much time pretending I'm okay when I'm not, I spend too much time making life look pretty on social media, even though we all know that everything is filtered and edited to fit an aesthetic. So here's to embracing the realities of life, the ugly and the pretty. We're human, not magazine covers and movie characters.
