Oh goodness, y’all this semester of college is killing me. I won’t be taking four classes a semester again... I hardly have any time to think and breathe and I’m flaring up so bad. I’m trying not to overwhelm myself with more things like doctors visits (they’re all the time too 😭) and hangouts but it’s hard to say no to people and hard to know what your body is gonna feel like tomorrow. My body makes me feel so guilty for all the money we’ve wasted on doctors, my inability to function like an actual human being and not some sleep deprived alien who lives in the bowels of the ocean. Life’s hard and it’s even harder for us spoonies. But what’s amazing is that God has used all of this for a bigger and better picture to focus our weaknesses on His greatness and everlasting beautiful eternity waiting for us. I just have to remember that through all this busyness and pain to stay focused on Him. I know easier times are coming... Christ given hope is sometimes all I have to live for. It’s the last thing I have left, this constant small peace in my reckless life is that one day I will be on my knees before the throne of Jesus. He will say “well done, good and faithful servant. I know you, my daughter.”

During and after a depressive #bpdepisode (is this what it’s called?) . I don’t know if you guys can see the exhaustion on my face afterwards. These attacks are a full body experience. I cried, sobbed, for about an hour in the fields. Filled with existential dread. My brain dives into the hole of ‘why are we here’ ‘why do we bother’ I just don’t understand why we live and die, breathe and cry. Specially as a spoonie. It haunts me that people take for granted their abilities, that they can wake up rested without pain, they can travel freely and make last minute plans without worrying about medication, they can work/study without the hurdles and distractions of health. Luckily I was able to come out of it within hours, not days or weeks. Sometimes months. I know this emotion stems from my fibro. Mental health and chronic diseases go hand in hand. It’s time for pain treatment greater integrate psychotherapy, cbt , mindfulness, art therapy etc. No, it’s not the only aspect to finding the balance in your health but it will help build a foundation for positive change. .

O Lúpus talvez seja a mais característica das doenças auto-imunes. É riquíssimo em achados clínicos e ainda não compreendido totalmente. Os sintomas vão desde dor articular, queda de cabelo, fadiga/cansaço e lesões de pele até o acometimento grave dos rins e dos pulmões, dentre outros. Para mais esclarecimentos procure um reumatologista.

so I’ve been going back and forth about posting this or not since sometimes it feels like there’s a bit of a witch hunt happening on IG, but this past week I was officially diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. This is something that has been in the works since I was about 14, I just never went to see a geneticist until recently! I was never interested in pursuing a formal diagnosis since EDS isn’t curable and is hardly treatable it sometimes seems, but ultimately my PCP and I decided it was worth it to make sure I have access to things I need like PT, and to pursue genetic testing to make sure I did in fact have hEDS. I’ve had problems with joint instability and a whole lotta pain for as long as I can remember, so this isn’t in the least bit surprising, and I guess I’m glad to finally have a name behind the problems EDS has caused me my whole life.

After a terrible morning....I needed to unplug and get away.

What better place to escape than my happy place...Disneyland.

Got the Mickey ears on, a jungle julep in hand and forgetting all the worries for now.

Just time to enjoy myself 💕

AIP Flatbread chicken & veggie “pizza”
.
A few little tweaks to this flatbread recipe and I should be able to share it with y’all next week! .

Topped my flatbread with sautéed kale, zucchini, red bell pepper, chicken, and broccoli sprouts. Then drizzled it all in olive oil 👌🏼
.
What will you top your flatbread with?! .

just a rant about something that’s been annoying me lately (mainly because I’m quickly running out of post ideas)

things aren’t working for you? get a new perspective. now.
this means when you are confused, overwhelmed, or hurting... your only salvation is to take a small step outside of your orbit. if you are a teenager in school: walk down a different hallway, smile at a kid you know is lost; stay an extra minute with a coach or teacher who is looking out for you.
if you are grown and in a job or relationship that is toxic: focus on the things that make you feel whole - the stronger you are the easier it will be to determine what you deserve 💗

I’m so excited about moving to start uni but sad to be moving as well. I’ve met some amazing people over the last couple of years and without them I wouldn’t be where I am now. I will always be so grateful to all of you 💙 .

Whether it's mental pain 🤕 or physical pain ♿, pain WILL change you. However 🤔, I'm grateful for the blessings that came out of my pain. It slowed me down 🍵; I take time for me. I notice the little things more 🌹🐿🐦🌳; and I have time now to enjoy them. I appreciate every good day 🙏 ; I'm still here. AND I know I can handle ALOT, because I've been through the ringer!! Most importantly, I have a much closer relationship to God; He never let go of me through this long, arduous 12 year crysalis. 🐛 Thank you, God. 🙏🕊🙏 #thankful #lifesajourney #lifelessons #pain #imstillhere #faith #faithnotfear #ptsd #depression #anxiety #chronic #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #fibroeverysingleday #fibro #fibromyalgia #fibrowarrior #spoonies #spoonie #spoonielife #invisibleillness #fibromyalgiawarrior

What is your brain filled up with? I’d say I’ve managed to do a fairly accurate representation here. Lol.

Day 18! Today's theme is Meditation, which is an important part of my life. It's part of my yoga practice and my self care practice. It helps me manage anxiety, ease my sleep problems, feel grounded, be present in my body, connect with myself, change my energy, and cultivate gratitude. _________________________________________________________
The idea of what meditation looks like - that stereotype of a perfectly quiet room and a silent mind - is not what meditation looks like for me. I love guided meditations! I love listening to someone guide me through different types of meditations to help bring various things to mind. There are so many wonderful guided meditations out there, for free, that I could listen forever and never run out of them. I like to meditate seated, but also sometimes I like to meditate laying down. Especially if I'm working on relaxing and preparing for sleep, I find that laying down will help me to relax easier. don't worry if that stereotype of meditation doesn't work for you. Give yourself permission to try different ways of meditating and you will eventually find something that works for you. And any amount of time is great! Don't feel like you have to meditate for a long period of time. If you only have 5 minutes, that's okay! That is 5 minutes well spent.
