How do you find #joy while in 🛌 to #rest, #recover and #heal? My “helpers” are:
✔️Soft, cute PJs/yoga attire
✔️A beautiful #journal 📔 ✔️Delicious #tea in a mug that makes me smile ☕️ (I ❤️Cinnamon Cardamon by @republicoftea)
✔️Something pleasing to the eye 👁 — a salt rock lamp, a happy card, a magazine collage with inspirational quotes 💪💫🤗
What about you, friends?

Yesterday I had my third Infliximab Infusion. I made a huge mistake by not eating breakfast or taking any food with me. When it finally came to eating dinner...oh boy..the pain 😅
On the up side, properly hydrating myself before and after the infusion is definitely helping with the headaches. I usually start increasing my water intake the week my infusion is due and grab some #dioralyte for an added boost post-infusion. .
.
.
I have always been quite a reflective person, however, I feel that being diagnosed with a chronic illness adds a totally new dimension to that process. Infusion days, particularly are a time I find myself reflecting the most. Last week I found myself quite stressed worrying about the usual things in life...but infusion day comes and it seems like those stressors don’t worry me as much anymore. Perspective is a wonderful thing, because you have the utmost control in how you use it. Do not get me wrong, there are definitely days when I feel like I’m drowning; but ultimately the reality of this illness has made me a stronger person and have a happier outlook on life, and for that I am truly grateful.
There is life after a chronic illness diagnosis...and for those of you struggling...talk, be open, engage... do not suffer alone! My inbox is always open for those having a rough time.
Let’s fight this illness together 👊🏻💜

Along with commercial seed oils like canola, sunflower, soy, safflower, peanut and rapeseed, sugar/carbohydrates are behind our modern disease epidemic. And there is a huge industry behind all these diseases.
.
We are sold food that make us sick and then sold medicine to treat the problems caused by a poor diet. Food and pharma don't care about your health, their goal is profit. Squeezing everything out of you for as long as possible.
.
The single best thing you can do for your health is to stop listening to industry and start listening to your body. .
Add animal, coconut, olive and avocado fats to your diet.
Eat animal protein.
Restrict sugar/carbohydrates.

A bit of sparkle, a pop of colour, a smile. Legs are about as wobbly as a newborn gazelle today so this is as good as it’s going to get. It’s full-on school/parenting stuff for the duration until 6.30.

This pic taken in October 2017 of me snapchat hoeing it at home and then finding myself in pain and feeling like my chest and lungs were being squeezed ... 100 - 0 in a couple of hours admitted to hospital for heart attack like symptoms. High on morphine thanks to the ambulance guys (yep that ambo cover really pays for itself) - For the last 5 years i have been hoping that i could go 12 months without being admitted to hospital & finally my wish came true 😁🎉🍾. Maybe I'll end up in hospital before the year is out but damn 12 months is a freakin win & gives me hope that i can beat this.
What changed? I listened to my body more. I only occassionally push my limits & i do rest more these days instead of compacting 72 hours into 24... between a team of medical, physical & mental experts i think they've worn down my stubborness (sort of 😈). I still can't meditate or shut my brain off but at least we got me to an ok level where i just accept that while I'm in rest mode:
✔ really decide on what i should priorities be it an activity or a person which is why i tell people if i choose to spend time with you know that i chose to drain my physical and sometimes emotional energy to spend it with you. (Read the spoon theory if you don't know what i mean)
✔ i have to get soft, weak and puffy, sometimes i dont control my body at all.
✔ be ok being unable to open my own medicine bottles, jars or anything that requires wrists, strength or physical movement we healthy humans take for granted. ✔ decide if i can actually steer the car or stay at home. Yep unless I'm on prescription pain meds i can't steer my car... (disclaimer i get so used to pain meds that they dont make me drowsy)
✔ Decide what is more important regarding my family, friends & career life ✔when i'm well again i can go full throttle .
To my fellow spoonies who have it worse and going thru so much pain every day, i admire your bravery & strength to keep fighting. I still consider myself very mild compared to what this really can be & i am grateful every day that it hasn't gotten worse. My thoughts & my love are always with you.

So I got my results from my MRI and the one my thing that showed up was a small non healing tear in my ankle. (The MRI was only on my ankle) So my next move is to go to a nutritionist for my stomach issues and an orthopedic doctor for my other issues. #aidupont #afternoon #brestcancerawareness #bloodwork #bloodresults #checkingin #dysautonomiaawareness #dork #fatigue #hospital #jointissues #lgbt #love #meds #musclepain #muscleandjointpain #mri #physicaltherapy #spooneddork #spoonie #school #sick #trash #tictok #tired #weekend #whatiswrongwithme #rest #zebra #orthopedic

We survived Hurricane Michael everyone. We live in an area that was impacted directly by the center of the storm. In the state of GA Seminole county was the hardest hit area and Early county was the second hardest hit. We live in Early county. All the power lines leading to our house are down and we have trees that fell onto our house and camper. We are expected to be without power for at least 5 weeks, if not more. We are on day 7 of no power and have MREs to give us some warm food. We do have 3 generators to power our well, internet router for communication, our freezer, and a single light. As you can see, Clark was unfazed by the storm and sounds of our home being damaged. He calmly laid beside me in the hall under a mattress. Today also happens to be my birthday but it sure doesn't seem like it. My parents and boyfriend are working hard to make it a great day though. ........................................................... #servicehuman #servicedog #workingdog #servicedogsofinstagram #servicedogs #medicalalertdog #migrainealertdog #hemiplegicmigrainealertdog #mobilityservicedog #esacat #therapycatintraining #dysautonomia #pots #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #potswarrior #potsie #EDS #ehlersdanlossydrome #bendbutdontbreak #IBS #hesmystrength #counterbalance #mobility #chronicillness #spoonie #spoonielife ✨Follow our pawsome partners✨

Cold weather means the office is chilly in the morning. Compression gloves help keep my hands warm enough that I can type with minimal pain thanks to the cold. I’m still looking for gloves that go to the first finger joint. #fibromyalgia #fibro #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieproblems #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior

I loved this outfit and wanted to show it off, but if I’m honest, I didn’t want to be in my clothes anymore at this stage. My pjs were calling me.

In middle school I was a fat kid. I developed later than basically every other girl, and then we were too broke for bras for a good bit.⁣

I fucking HATED gym class. I’d do anything to avoid it. I hated being looked at by all the judgy, pretty, popular girls in nice new clothes. ⁣

I hated feeling my newly forming breasts bounce around along with my belly when I tried to run. I.HATED.GYM CLASS. It was basically torture.⁣

So imagine my surprise at how much I LOVE being able to move, lift, shift, run, squat, etc. now.⁣

I LOVE feeling like I have control over my body, my rehabilitation, and my health. (Even if it’s an illusion,ultimately.) ⁣

Exercising is how I can take proactive action in being my best self and in my health and recovery and that means a lot after feeling so completely out of control for so long.⁣

And I LOVE how good it makes me feel emotionally. The mood swings are less, I stay more positive and more focused on my goals. I feel GOOD. Sleep better, too.⁣

I finally get to go work out with Jacob today and hit the pool tomorrow after 10 days away from the Rec and three weeks out of the pool. ⁣

I was struggling to sleep last night, laying in bed in high pain after a long, emotionally exhausting day. But I was EXCITED to get back to Muletown Rec. ⁣

Imagine that! I suppose after nine straight months living my whole life on a couch, I’ve gained a new appreciation for just being able to move at all. And hey, I gotta do all I can before the next time I’m laid up, to get the implant 😉.⁣

Cellular Detoxification ✨
-
The process of either clearing or neutralizing toxins from the body (fatty tissues, organs, etc). This will aid in clearing excess acidity, mucous, infections, etc.
-
Symptoms / Problems (related to toxicity)
•Difficultly losing weight (excess visceral fat)
•Excessive sweating
•Chronic skin issues
•Bloating + gas
•Fatigue
•Depression
•Anxiety
•Dark under eye circles
•Living in a state of fear
•Lack of motivation
•Chronic pain unrelated to an injury
•Acid Reflux
•Low libido
•Kidney stones
•Diabetes
•Cancer
•ALL Inflammatory conditions
-
Just because we are in the the midst of fall and I’m consuming copious amounts of pumpkin spice muffins, doesn’t mean I refrain from cleansing. I am a big proponent of consuming foods that you love in conjunction with ongoing cleansing throughout the year to prevent toxic buildup.
-
Our body’s are overburdened by toxins like never before. So much so, there is currently quite a bit of research taking place on how these toxins negatively impact our health. Stagnation in the body causes our eliminating organs (liver, kidneys, bowels, skin) to function at a subpar level.
-
Congestion + chronic inflammation is a recipe for disaster. Fortunately, our bodies are capable of regenerating, if given the proper tools.
-
My top 5 cleansing tips to increase peristalsis, reduce inflammation, get the lymph moving and grooving, and promote cellular health.
1)Dietary modifications
2)Daily movement
3)Infrared Sauna (Do as the Finns do 😊)
4)Colon cleansing
5)Specific supplements + herbs 🌿
