I want to thank those who encouraged me to do this. I hate asking for help. Who knows who this could reach out to. My link is in my bio and please share on your story/posts.

Yeaaaaaa... I take sleep medicine too or else I’ll be awake all night. Painsomnia is real! I wish there was a turn my body off pill for sleep, so you could wake up refreshed.  #insomnia #restless #chronicpain #chronicillness #tossandturn #nosleepforthewicked #mentalhealth #uncomfortable #iusealltheheat #positioningaids #pregnancypillow #nothingworks
I posted this in my RP support group as the whole group has been grieving due to the sudden loss of some of our members in such a short period of time. I did want to put forth a reminder that the holiday seasons are upon us. Please be mindful that these are some of the hardest times, physically and mentally. Many warriors may have to fight a little harder during this season. If you cannot lend a hand, just lend a listening ear. Sending love to you all!  #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #chronicillness #grief #bekind #bekindtooneanother #lendanear #bethelight #inthedarkness #iseeyou #imhereforyou #depression #seasonaldepression #holidaysarentalwayshappy
Happy 1st Birthday to this sweet little boy! Holden, your mommy held you in the best she could while I was in Boston in the hospital. We rushed those doctors and nurses the best we could. They didn’t want me to go, as I was oxygen dependent still. I drug myself and my tanks to come and see you be born! I remember feeling like such crap from my pneumonia, but it was a struggle for you and mommy, so I had to be strong. I love you with all my heart! Thank you for making me an auntie again πŸ’— #allthekisses #chunkyboy #holdeneverett #sweetbaby #bestsnuggles #nephewnumber2 #ilovemyniecesandnephews #auntlife #bestlife

As much as I tried to ignore my medical issues and plans while I was out of the country, it hit me like a ton of bricks when I got back. My port has flipped forward, my body is hurting from head to toe, I started having a GI bleed again, And i’m running out of medications. I have to pay over 7,000 dollars out of pocket in medical bills to reach my spend down to have Medicaid (which is a nightmare). When it rains it pours. I need fluids. I hate running my feeds when I’m bleeding because it makes me bleed so much more, but my port is inaccessible so I have no choice. If you have/had a port before... has it flipped over on you?
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night.  I hate to go and leave this pretty sight. #austria #salzburg #soundofmusic #thehillsarealive #travel #travelphotography #travel #chronicillnesstravels #aufwiedersehen #idontwannaleave
It is an ever-evolving process of who I want to be πŸ’­πŸ€”
Disneyland Paris! While I may be revolted by the way they handle disabilities, I still LOVE LOVE LOVE Disney 🀷🏼‍β™€οΈπŸ­πŸ°
Isn’t she lovely, isn’t she wonderful
My ankles feel a little puffy, so I’m gonna elevate so I can enjoy Paris tomorrow!  #chronicillness #chronicillnesstravels #paris #france #relapsingpolychondritis #relapsingpolychondritisawareness #watchoutformybook #eatpraylove #disablededition πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜
Well, actually not off to Amsterdam quite yet. We had another day in Frankfurt. Today, I took a good nap and tried some gnocchi chicken. It was kind of spicy, but good. Things I noticed today that is different from America... we drink a shit ton of soda. They give you a tiny cup... no free refills here. I miss 7-11 slurpees and the accessibility of them. Along the lines of vending machines, there is almost always a tobacco one. It made me realize how little Americans smoke these days. There aren’t as many bathrooms and no cups of free ice water. The weather was so lovely, though.
If you can’t tell, I made it to Germany! Step one: Eat a German Brat! I would have liked it even more if it had bits of apples in it 🀀 my stomach is hating me, but it was worth it! Off to Amsterdam!
Happy Birthday to this ghoul! I love your love for all things spooky, your random “I love you!”, your rambunctious spirit, and your overall aunt CayCay attitude. πŸ’πŸΌ‍♀️ #quinns5thponyparty #mylittlelove
