Just be who you are, and love yourself. I know it can be hard,and it takes time.
Just remember you are here for a reason.
If you don’t know who you are made to be yet, just wait. You’ll find out soon.

Ok, it’s day 15 in the hospital, & I’m about to blow a gasket! Results are pending, but, I’ve lost all faith & confidence w/the doctors & hospital. All I hear is, “We don’t know, let’s wait & see, & this doesn’t make sense!” They keep saying that I’m a special case, cuz I have so many #chronicillness Ok... this is true, but my frustration level is at an all time high. I’m trying to stay calm & positive, but I’m having a really hard time. I know my fellow #spoonie sistas & brothers can relate, but I’m not the bad ass that God thinks I am. #walkingdead #lefteyeblind #retinitispigmentosa #dysautonomia #fibromyalgia #neuropathy #hypothyroidism #interstitialcystitis #pelvicfloor #gastroparesis #ibs #cdiff #norovirus #chronicpain #anxiety #depression

I’ve been extremely quiet, trying to figure out how to get through each day (cope) with my nerve pain. At times I could quite easily have cut my legs off - extreme yes! But the pain is just absolutely beyond agony and yes I’m strong but we all have our limits. I definitely reached mine!! I know I’ve been feeling very low and I’m not ashamed to say it. Being in constant pain is bloody hard!! We are all human and we all have our own personal limits! I smile to everyone I see and I look ‘normal’ whatever that is but inside I’m fighting this feeling of despair. I have only been doing the bare minimum to get through each day. Since the beginning of the school holidays I have basically stayed in at home in agony but somehow staying strong so my children can still have fun. I want to thank my amazing man @standleyian and my beautiful sister @mel194 who have listened to me when I finally admitted out loud that i am in-fact struggling. I can’t tell you the relief I felt by saying it out loud!! This was two weeks ago, I went to see my doctor and explained and she prescribed me Pregabalin. This blocks the nerve signals and by doing so helps with nerve pain. 🧡
Fast forward two weeks and here is me with my family watching one of my boys playing football in the sunshine altogether, not me hiding at home but altogether 🙌 I can’t tell you what an amazing feeling this is!!My pain (at the moment) is under control and although still there it’s not now so unbearable I can’t think about anything else. So if anyone is struggling- emotionally. Please please share your feelings, please don’t struggle in silence where you don’t need to. Our mental health is so precious and you have the right to be happy!! 🧡

Today treatment advice for one of my patients with long term chronic injury who has seen many people all who took a direct biomechanical approach.

There is clear reasons why it hasn't worked.
The body has systems it prioritises for health and survival...the most important is #emotion 🤯😤😭😆 While biomechanics is important and needs to be addressed when long term pain, inflammation and injury is present we need to look else where as mechanics is way down the list!
Taking time to ask the questions and find the root cause of pain is essential to fixing the problem!! This year I have learnt so much body systems and function wise through @aminopainacademy ...my practice and thought processes; knowledge of the body; chemical interactions; body systems assessment and palpation have gone to a whole new level!! Thank you @anfdrmikelhoff & @samlesliept and the #anffamily
This is so much more than #discs !!! It is about helping people improve their overall health and wellbeing and helping them to #thrive

Last night I uttered the words to my partner, “I can’t live like this.” The pain was unbelievably high. I had stabbing pains from my bum up my back. I felt like a million aliens were cutting out my insides with knifes. I couldn’t sit up. I couldn’t really sleep. No painkillers worked. My stomach was spasming. Sometimes my will power falters. When it does it is my partner, my friends & love ones who show me the beauty around me. I have some truly badass people around me. One of my most favourite people called me this morning to check in. She reminds me why I keep fighting. She is one of so many. I feel so incredibly grateful for the amazingly strong, fearless, powerful & ‘unashamedly themselves’ friends I have around me. I feel so lucky for these people but also for the badass warriors I’ve met through Instagram. You all rock! Photo taken whilst in Cornwall. A reminder that there is beauty all around us, even if sometimes it is hard to see. #myfriends #myfriendsrock #friendship #throwbackthursday #endosucks #endometriosis #endowarrior #1in10 #dontgiveup #grateful #gratitude #spoonie #chronicillness #chronicpainawareness #chronicpain

While it's not always easy, there are plenty of things you can do to create and maintain positive mental health: go for a walk, take a bath, read a book, catch up with friends, get a massage. You'll be better, stronger, braver!⁠

Make time for yourself regularly which is focused on caring for your mental health.⁠

While hemp-derived CBD continues to grow in popularity a new analysis concludes that it still won't come close to the demand for THC. Why? — Because the EntourageEffect. ✨🌿✨
A BDS Analytics white paper found that even when people shop for CBD products they often seek ones that also have some THC, other cannabinoids, or terpenes.

This is me, on pretty much any work day 😂
I only work part time, 3 days a week, but even that is hard. I am constantly hoping that I'll find the right combo of meds, or I'll wake up cured, all so I can start pushing myself again. It probably sounds a bit sad, but I really miss working full time! -

Still recovering after a frenzy of a weekend. I am still paying for it but would absolutely do it again! Today is definitely a onesie day though. If I have learnt anything from this it is to listen to my body. Sometimes sitting still is still progress and it has taken a long time to get that into my head. #conventionlife #recovery #recouperation #rest #onesie #chronicillness #chronicpain #Fibromyalgia #listen #imabadpatient #behave

Owning your own story can be hard, but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy- the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light ✨ - @brenebrown .

Dr Ash (Osteo) showing how to reduce neck stiffness and pain! If you experience a pulling pain when side bending your neck, give these a go!
1️⃣ Relax your shoulders and place one arm behind your back.
2️⃣ Bend your neck towards the opposite shoulder
3️⃣ You can also rotate your neck slightly to further the stretch.
Many of you already do this instinctively but the real key is to hold it for 20-30 seconds!
Repeat it 2-3 times of multiple times throughout the day!
If this stretch causes you pain do not continue before consulting a medical professional.
