It appears I don't try hard enough, I don't fight the illness enough, I lay down to it and let myself get swallowed by it. ⁣ This has certainly put my mood down. How do you fight an illness like M.E when anytime you try to fight it, it comes back 10x worse? I spend a lot of the morning in bed because I know if I get up first thing, I just feel worse for if later on. I might not sleep, but I feel better as a result compared to getting up and napping later in the day. It's not ideal, but in reality I have this horrible, life sucking disease that screws your life up. ⁣ ⁣ There is someone who never praises me for keeping going (not that I'm looking for it), they believe I don't push enough too, I'm probably not good enough, I lay down to it, I can't work or study (M.E made me quit college which was heartbreaking) and so because of that, I don't try hard enough. ⁣ ⁣ I find day to day life hard as it is, without realising people think I'm effectively lazy and don't help myself. I don't know how to live a normal life and get great satisfaction from it because I'm either unwell mentally or physically. I have no purpose or place in the world at the moment and I don't know how to change that without making myself unwell. I want more, but I don't know how to get it. ⁣ ⁣ I'm stuck on a neverending carousel of doing too much, or not doing enough. ⁣ ⁣ #myalgicencephalomyelitisawareness #myalgicencephalomyelitissucks #mecfs #mecfswarrior #myalgicencephalomyelitis #mecfsawareness #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #cfsme #chronicfatigue #cfsmeawareness #spoonielife #spoonie #spoonieproblems #invisibleillnesswarrior #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness
NEW BLOG TUESDAY: @drhendersonmd and thyroid patient Allison Futterman’s book, What You Must Know About Hashimoto’s Disease, is vastly different to other thyroid books I have read, in the way that it is extremely comprehensive and aligning with my own views of each thyroid patient being individual, therefore requiring an individual approach.  Dr. Henderson goes through the fundamentals of hypothyroidism, with the patient insight and experiences provided alongside by Allison Futterman, a person living with Hashimoto’s.  Read the book review on my blog.

Gastroparesis is starving me this week and I foresee an ER visit in the next coming days or weeks. It’s important to fight and stay strong even in the darkest of times but reaching a hand out for help is often a very necessary thing when it comes to chronic illnesses. Just because it’s getting hard to eat on my own doesn’t mean I’m going to give up. There are always ways to get nutrition and I’m open to them. I’m a warrior and a fighter. Ya girls got this! 💚 💚 💚 💚 #gastroparesiswarrior #gastroparesis #chronicillness #chronicillness #chronicfatigue #gastroparesisawareness #gastroparesissucks
Been through some bad shit I should be a sad bitch Who woulda thought it'd turn me to a savage?
My journey hasn’t been easy, in a weird way it has made me both much more independent and other parts much more reliant on others.. • Sometimes I think back on this chronic illness journey and wonder “what if?” • And then I see all the photos of me in hospital, and it hits me emotionally like a ton of bricks.. it’s then that I realise how incredibly incredibly strong I am.. these endless tests, operations, procedures, surgeries, hospital stays... when I’ve had no one but myself and a room full of strangers poking and prodding me. • I can’t explain how lonely and crappy it is... when you want to be anywhere else but there, and the feeling goes for a bit and comes around again, all to familiar at your next admission.. • We are all so so strong and brave fighting these invisible battles. Don’t ever forget, when it all feels so scary, dark, and unknown... how much of a battle we have conquered individually and together as a community that many others will never understand, particularly at such a young, prime time in their lives. 💖💪 • • • • • • #chronicillness #health #strong #gastroparesis #eds #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #heds #hypermobility #sick #awareness #healthadvocate #invisibleillnesss #butyoudontlooksick #ms #me #cfs #pots #fibro #fibromyalgia #endo #endometriosis #heart #heartcondition
Aina mulla ei mene hyvin. Joskus on yyhiä päiviä ja joskus on ihan huikeita päiviä, mutta aika monet päivät menee vähän huonommin.  Tänään mulla on oikeasti aika huono olo. Olen nukkunut n. viikon todella huonosti ja se alkaa tuntua kehossa toden teolla. Lihaksia väsyttää ja päätä väsyttää, aivosumu on läsnä ja tasapaino tuntuu puuttuvan ainakin osittain. Uniongelman lisäksi olen myös lyönyt päätäni aika usein ja sekin alkaa tuntua.  Mun on valtava ikävä todella monia ihmisiä, mutta ei oikeastaan energiaa mennä ja tavata ketään. Ja oikeastaan se myös pelottaa. Mä haluaisin vaan lukea ja maata vilttiin kääriytyen ja toivoa, että parantuisin yht'äkkiä. Onko jollain ideoita liittyen siihen, miten voi olla yhteyksissä ihmisiin ilman, että siihen menee loppukin energia? Onko jollain ideoita siihen, miten säilyttää toivo, mutta lopettaa turha haaveilu ja "sitten kun" -ajattelu?  Mä olen todella väsynyt.  #spoonie #tired #brainfog #invisibleillness #chronicillness #chronicallycute #väsynyt #lusikkasoturi
A massive increase in steps last week. The week before's total was around 25,000. I tentatively increased my step target to 3000 a day for this week, up from 2,500. But I think I'll make it 4000 and see how it goes. I am cautious as I have over done it and crashed many times. It's easy to forget I struggled to meet my 1,500 daily step target a short while ago. #spoonielife #spoonie #chroniclife #chronicillness #fibromyalgia #cfs #chronicfatiguesyndrome

My nickname as a kid was "Super Emmy". I may or may not have tird a blanket around my neck like a cape and run around the house...ANYWAY...Now as an adult with chronic illness, my super power is going for days on end without showing outwardly that anything is wrong...what are your super powers? #invisibility #invisibleillness #chronicillness #chronicpain #chroniclyawesome #whatsyoursuperpower #essentialthrombocythemia #essentialmybutt
Rheumatoid Arthritis stole my life, it was like I was on pause wanting to return to the me that I knew.  I became STAGNANT.  If you suffer from RA really think about this word, the psychology and the science of your behaviour, your thoughts and your emotions. Do you feel trapped? Is literally everything in your body trapped resulting in stagmentation.  There is a science behind Rheumatoid Arthritis and I believe it can be cured! If a few of you don’t mind sharing your feelings please comment under this post.  I am predicting that a feeling of being trapped would resonate with many.  #autoimmunedisease #rheumatoidarthritis #wellbeing #health #rheumatoidarthritiswarrior #rheumatology #rheumatologist #science #medical #medicalscience #treatment #cure #chronicpain #chronicillness
Little Jewels. Cherry tomatoes. These are going into my salad today. Variety is the best recipe to make plant-based eating sustainable and a joy. Not all tomatoes taste the same, like no all lettuces are the same. Experiment and go hunt for variety (if you can and have access to) 🍅

Okay, in my absence from smoking most anything, I thought I'd tell you about this @aerie bralette I got. It's their shine lace racerback(?) bralette or something. It's so comfy that I fell asleep in it twice. It's also more comfy than not wearing a bra which I am not used to. Swipe to see the back.  I used to be a 30H UK/30K US, and now with my health decline and subsequent weight loss, holding 'the girls' up has really helped my back pain. Imagine my suprise when I was an XS, and it fits almost perfectly. (Maybe a S fabric wise but i needed the XS band size) Also, body positivity; the only editing I did was cropping and adding the space backgrounds  I highly recommend these for my boob having followers, especiallythose who are chronically I'll or need an inexpensive (less than $10) lounge bra. They're great to lounge in or to go out. Not great support for exercise but great for class or around the house. These aren't lined so you may need those petal things.  The only sad thing about this is that I was going to order 2 of them and the other color it came in became out of stock in my size, but after checkout was still in stock. I couldnt afford the bralette AND shipping twice so I didn't get it. I'll get more if I can when I get the money! (PS the bralette in my older video was between 7 and 8 dollars from aerie)  #aerie #aeriereal #bralette #chronicillness #chronicpain #loungebra #comfy #chronicallyill
Person with EDS styles bruise runs into a normal person and they ask you how you got your massive bruise 🧐 person who has EDS replies umm I moved 😂😂😂 but seriously I slightly bumped this and the actual vein burst hurt more than the friggin bump itself 😜 sporting a large bruise that looks like I have been in a accident or something drastic 🧐 #ehlersdanlossyndrome  I am feeling sooo much better on my #healthyhabits  course with #charliegoldsmith  and I am getting on top of my symptoms but I still have dodgy connective tissue and that is why it’s so important to take care of myself and stick with my program and keep getting good results 🙏💕🙏 I have suffered from chronic depression and anxiety ever since I can remember and I have not had a easy life so it’s not just a little depression this shit is deep trauma related stuff and I can honestly say that I have never felt better emotionally 🙏 like ever 💕 I am calm and not feeling blue and my anxiety is nearly nil 🙏🙏🙏 this is huge because this program is working 💕 I work hard every day and every day things improve 😘 #healing  #chronicillness  #chronicpain  #down_our_oily_lane ps Essential oils have helped ease this bruise a ton 👌

#longdistancesucks I don't know how to be happy right now. I've been having a stressful, depressed few weeks. Haven't been able to leave the house more than a few times the past 3 weeks, Anthony isn't coming back this Saturday like his boss said last week. I'm almost done cleaning the house, but I want to go out and have fun, maybe spend the last of my money on myself rather than on laundry. I started with $200 and only have $40 left, and I still have 3 large loads of laundry I need to take to the laundromat... life is painful lately, my heart feels broken and I can't find anything that makes me feel better. 💔 . . . #longdistancelove #longdistancerelationship #longtermrelationship #ldr #lovingthroughdistance #longdistancecouple #sadgirl #brokenheart #sadgirlsclub #sadgirls #grungegirl #gothicgirl #gothgirl #metalchick #modernwitch #witch #witchesofinstagram #witchywoman #altgirl #brunette #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicallyill #softgrunge #palegrunge #darkgrunge #palegrunge
Someone missed out on the life lesson of etiquette. A middle aged man, of all people, made fun of my mask to his friends, in a bloody hospital! Yes, I have to wear it.

Repost @lebanesevegans You don’t kill the cow when you drink milk or eat cheese. You forcibly impregnated her on a rape rack, take her baby away from her, use her, abuse her for 5 years, dry her up, *THEN* kill her. For cheap meat industry. But this, you probably know by now. Lactose free or not, it is still 100% cruelty. Don’t be fooled by what you see on TV. After years receiving this information and you simply still don’t care says a lot about the real person you are. Pretending to care is worse than not caring at all. . . . #totalanimalliberation #govegan #vegan #dairyisscary #veganfortheanimals #stopanimalabuse #humaneslaughter #veganfortheinnocent #veganfortheplanet #dairyiscruel #veganforthevulnerable #choosecompassion #choosecrueltyfree #cancerinmeat #pusinmeat #cognitivedissonance #pusinmilk #allanimalsareequal #whyamivegan #milk #lactose #life #lactosefree #lactoseintolerant #dairy #cheese #styling #pizza #milk #coffee #chronicillness

Another glorious day in #sunnyworthing . Would have been even better if I hadn’t been awake since 4am. The cruel irony of CFS/ME is that it virtually always affects sleep. You feel exhausted yet you can’t sleep (apart from the acute phase where people sleep 16-20 hours a day). Sleep doesn’t improve your fatigue. You can sleep brilliantly and you still feel diabolical when you wake up. However if you don’t sleep, you will certainly feel even worse... as if it’s possible to feel worse... yes it is 😩😩. Most of the time nowadays I sleep ok although I am never free of sleep anxiety. I feel extremely pressured to sleep because of course I don’t want to get worse and relapse. Lately I’ve been waking at around 3am every few days and can’t get back to sleep. Of course it’s added anxiety because I was sleeping 2 hours a night before my 2018 relapse. I want to sleep, I create all the conditions to sleep but then if I wake up so randomly and can’t get back to sleep, I get stressed and that creates a vicious cycle. The only way to break the cycle is to reduce importance. You can’t be anxious about something you don’t care about. But how do you not care when sleep is so crucial? No one, no therapist has ever been able to tell me... The only time in my live I beat sleep anxiety was when I realised nothing bad happened if I didn’t sleep. I still trained, worked and studied. Except I didn’t have CFS then. Now I know exactly how bad things can get if I don’t sleep whilst having this condition. So what do I do?

How long did it take to you from the time you felt your first symptoms to get a formal IC diagnosis ?  Personally I don’t remember the exact amount of years but I do know it took YEARS and visiting so many different types of specialists.  While waiting to get a formal diagnosis it can be anxiety provoking and discouraging. I remember the relief that came from finally finding out what was going on inside my body. Knowledge is power! . . . #interstitialcystitis #momswithic #pelvichealth #icwarrior #ichope #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #instapain #instachronicillness #spoonie #instaspoonie #womenshealth #invisibleillness #momlife #supportgroup #disabodyposi #instahealth #bladderhealth #painfulbladdersyndrome #spooniestrong #spoonielife #butyoudontlooksick
HOW I HEALED CHRONIC UTI’S 🌸 . I’m sure we all know the situation too well - you have some gut issues, and then all of a sudden other parts of our bodies start falling apart. This rings true for me, and along with all my GI symptoms, I was prone to chronic UTI’s for a year of my life. At one point, I was having one every month. They were always more painful than the last and caused me to miss work and have to rush home to the doctors only to be prescribed more antibiotics and often in tears because I was yet again missing out on plans and life and felt so frustrated. I was so desperate for an answer. How did I get past this point?  1. Some serious self lovin’ 💕 and mindset - the Healthstyle Emproium has really taught me to nurture my relationship with my body and turn around my self talk. I went from negatively chastising my body and being my own bully to positive self talk and acknowledging that my body was doing so well to show me that there was a deeper problem. A combination of mindset work, yoga and staying in the present instead of literally worrying about getting a UTI every time I had sex helped me not think about it. What we think = what we attract  2. I got rid of all my other supplements - yep, including the high dosage cranberry that is meant to be amazing for preventing UTI’s that never seemed to help - and switched to wholefood fruits, veggies and berries in a capsule. The berries, with over 11+ types, release a huge amount of antioxidants which help our body to rid itself of toxins. Berries are perfect for supporting urinary tract health and the combination of different ones rather than one strand means you’re giving your body a whole range of nutrients 3. I WENT OFF THE PILL 💊🙅🏼‍♀️ and am allowing my vaginal bacteria to balance itself back to normal with the support of upping my nutrition game. Did you know that the pill sends your bacteria levels out of whack which can provide a growth of bad bacteria that allow

Today marks exactly 4 months since I started my celery juice journey. I cannot tell you enough how much this magical herb has helped me. It was a game changer in my healing. As soon as I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia last April, I made the decision to change my diet and live a healthier lifestyle. And with that, I did see changes in my level of pain and fatigue. But it wasn’t until I started to consume 16 oz a day of the celery juice, that I got my life back. 🌿4 months ago, I couldn’t pick up and hold my toddler without extreme pain. 🌿 4 months ago, I woke up every morning with eyes so swollen I couldn’t wear my contacts any longer. 🌿4 months ago, I couldn’t be in a car ride for longer than 20 minutes or my body would go into a major flare. 🌿4 months ago, a simple trip to the grocery store would take out all the energy I had for that day. 🌿4 months ago, I lived every day of every moment in some kind of pain. Some days so excruciating, I couldn’t function and be the mother and wife that I needed to be.  Because of celery juice, none of that is true anymore. I’m at the point now that I even have completely pain free days! I have my life back. I’m starting to get my health back and one day I know I will be 100% healed.  And that is the greatest gift I could ever do for myself. #fibromyalgia #chronicillness #epsteinbarrvirus #fibrowarrior #healingjourney #celeryjuicebenefits #celeryjuiceheals #medicalmedium #ihavemylifeback #foodismedecine #talkaboutittuesday #papillonsinbloom

Everyone has been posting the #10yearchallenge and I was hesitant bc with all that my body has been thru as far as my health goes I've gained quite a bit of weight.  Between steroid packs and other meds to treat a hereditary chronic disease in my spine I've put on the pounds. But I look back at the pics when I was smaller & straightened my curls bc i didnt feel beautiful and had a very low self-esteem(also coping with a mentally, emotionally and physically abusive relationship) I find myself proud of the woman I am today. I'm self confident most days bc self esteem issues run deep and every now and then they try to present themselves. But overall I'm first proud of the relationship I have with Christ, putting Him first. Then I'm proud of my body for withstanding all the trauma it has been through. Lastly I'm proud of the woman that looks back at me in the mirror every day and tells me I'm beautifully and wonderfully made. And that I may be larger then I was 10 years ago but 10 years ago I wasn't a happy, self confident, curvy, beat all my battles woman I am today. So with curly hair and curvy body I proudly post this #10yearchallenge #selflove #plussizebeauty #sizedoesnotmeasurebeauty #beautifulmind #nomorelowselfesteem #picoftheday #chronicillness #hereditary #single #christianwoman #godfirst🙌 #motherof3 #lovemycurves #curlsandcurvesfordays #selfconfidence

Breakfast :)) Collagen filled matcha coconut latte, strawberries and my morning vitamins. Plus my lovely (read horrible) herbal medicine 🌱✨💫 . I am really starting to feel better, the pain today and yesterday has gone down to moderate/low from extremely severe/severe. Pain in my knee increased as the day went on yesterday but it was manageable, I didn’t need to take extra painkillers, just my usual very high strength ibuprofen. . Really hoping this decreasing pain continues 🙏🏼 .

I spoke to this momma yesterday morning about her son having chronic constipation. He’s been struggling for months and they have both emotionally suffered. 💫  I performed a health reading on both her and her son. Recommended foods to eats, foods to not eat, supplements to add in etc. 💫 I kid you not!  I got this message this afternoon!  You’re talking not even a full 24 hours on the protocol and this baby boy is already showing results.

Good morning lovelies!! ⁣ ⁣ Hope everyone made it through Monday, sometimes just making it through the day is an achievement in itself so don’t beat yourself up if that’s all you did cos that is enough! ✨⁣ ⁣ I made dinner last night for a couple of my uni friends, I made a chicken and spinach curry and red onion pakoras - all made from scratch and nut and gluten free ☺️⁣ ⁣ It went pretty well! Not perfect but I’m trying to teach my brain that food doesn’t have to be. ⁣ ⁣ I think it’s fairly common with recovery and disordered thinking to believe that for food to be worth eating it has to be perfect so you’re not ‘wasting’ calories BUT that is just a disorder-y trick, food is just food and you deserve to eat it no matter what your eating disorder is trying to tell you and I’m no saint, I still need to learn this too!⁣ ⁣ I don’t have lectures today so I’m going to try and get out of my flat and make sure I don’t spend the day just overthinking food choices and setting myself up for failure.⁣ ⁣ I am having dinner with a couple of my friends tonight and then my friend from home is coming to visit tomorrow!! ⁣ ⁣ What is everyone else looking forward to this week? ✨⁣ ⁣ #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorders #bulimia #bulimianervosa #bulimiarecovery #bulimianervosarecovery #bulimiafighter #bulimiawarrior #recovery #relapse #food #cooking #allergens #allergies #nutallergy #glutenfree #chronicillness #curry #mentalhealth #mentalillness
Periods SUCK Period pain SUCKS Period pain is NOT normal;  I’m so sorry to tell you that in such a blunt way! I just want the best for you; and know you shouldn’t be suffering the way in which you are!  There are so many ways in which you can relieve your suffering: eat organic food, increase your vitamin intake, change your mindset (yes really)  I’ve been there, and can help you get out on the other side!  I want nothing more then for you to live a pain free existence. Something which you call normal!  More detail will follow on how we can work together! 💋

Happy Tuesday... so not feeling great at all took my own advice and didnt train this morning. Slept last night, was completely 100% shattered when I got home from work yesterday. I chilled and did one thing different, I didnt touch my phone from 8pm, my wife was quite surprised I managed to do it as was I truth be known. But I did manage to sleep all night and feel better today but decided I will repeat tonight and see how I feel tomorrow. Plan is a swim session. So my photo today absolutely resonates with me, when I started on this journey not one length could i complete and my warm up now is exactly what I struggled to complete for close to 2 years, perseverance, patience and hard graft..and the differences are huge. @sundried, #swimming, #workout,#gym, #triathlon, #training, #rawarrior, #rheumatoidarthritis #running ,#happy ,#chronicillness #picoftheday
Check out these 2 jets @kylie_m_brown and one of our Exercise Physiologists Hannah Dower 💪 going through a HIIT session after Kylie's EP session. What's EP you ask?👇 ⁣ ⁣ 🔹Exercise physiology is all about the way the human body functions and responds to physical activity. This knowledge can then be applied to particular health conditions and lifestyle changes to maximise the benefits of exercise on the body. Kylie Brown ☝️ uses exercise physiology to stay fit and strong while managing her shoulder & neck issues, and general hypermobility.⁣ ⁣ 🔹An exercise physiologist is not like a personal trainer at a gym. Exercise physiologists have studied at a university level for a minimum of four years and are extremely knowledgeable about and have a clinical understanding of the key systems that make up your body. They can then specifically prescribe a program of exercises to meet your health or wellbeing goals.⁣ ⁣ 🔹Exercise physiologists carry specialist knowledge about exercising for the management of a number of health conditions, including but not limited to: obesity, arthritis, chronic pain, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, depression, asthma and cardiovascular diseases.⁣ ⁣ 🔹Exercise physiologists can also be specialists in strength and conditioning and many have undertaken further studies in this discipline. Hannah Dower ☝️ has undertaken further studies in this area. 💪⁣ ⁣ 👉 Exercise Physiology is for you:⁣ ⁣ 🔹if you would like to get fitter and/or achieve all around good health⁣ 🔹if you have a known medical condition 🔹🔹if you want to improve your athletic and sporting performance 🔹 if you have a new or old musculoskeletal condition or injury such as back pain, muscular dystrophy, fatigue or fibromyalgia⁣ 🔹if you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure or high cholesterol⁣ 🔹if you suffer from chronic pain as a result of a musculoskeletal condition.⁣ 🔹if you are about to undergo
Sometimes less is more.  I have a busy day ahead, so I needed a simple but fuelling breakfast to keep me going.. Enter porridge; the most simple, warming, nutritious bowl of fuel.  My love gave me the best advice for making porridge, which is to toast your oats first in the pan.  Yes it adds a couple more minutes to the cooking, but trust me on this one, it’s worth it! Toasting the oats brings out their flavour, and adds a toasty, nutty dimension.  I made mine this morning with oats, water, oat milk & salt. The salt really makes the porridge pop. I served it with a heaped tea spoon of my friend’s grandfather’s honey, and another sprinkle of sea salt. Perfection.  #endometriosis #endo #endosisters #endometriosisawareness #chronicillness #chronicpain #periodproblems #invisibleillness #womenshealth #pelvicpain #endobelly #spoonie #researchendonow #endowarrior #endolife #endoblog #breakfast #porridge #simplebreakfast #simple #nutritious #dairyfree #tea #london #winterwarmers

Thomas decided to come and sit with me yesterday when he got home which meant I turned into a phone holder so he could watch his film and get me to make videos of him on my phone.  He does love to have about 3 sensory things going at the same time 😊.
Sweet potato toast is a great alternative to regular toast. With about half the calories, half the carbs, 0% fat and tons of beta-carotene, here’s a healthier way to start your day!  Recipe link in bio. Linktree:
Too tired to get my jammies out of the dryer so it’s workout clothes for bed tonight... again. Also guys tonight will be by 10th night without taking ambien and today was my 9th day without coffee! I almost cried of happiness when I saw my cute little baby angel boyfriend cleaned the kitchen and fridge. I need to also brag about how I wrote a 5 page paper in an hour.  _____________  #tired #allergicdisorders #chronicillnessawareness #chronicillness #invisibleillness #posttransplant #livertransplant #doubletransplant #chronicillnessblogger #mcasd #idiopathicanaphylaxis #feelingstressed
🇬🇧 I love myself a good wrap when I want to eat healthy, quick & fresh. ☺ Wrap tuna, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, cheese slice, lettuce topped with pepper and kebab sauce. 🌯🍅🥒 What's your favourite combination in wraps? . . . 🇫🇷 J'ai tendance à le préparer un wrap lorsque je veux manger sain, rapide & frais. ☺ Wrap thon, tomates cerises, concombres, tranche de fromage, laitue avec sauce poivre et kebab. 🌯🍅🥒 C'est quoi ta combinaison préféré dans un wrap?
Took me awhile to figure this one out. #lupus affects so many parts of my life. I couldn’t tell you one area it hasn’t made me make an adjustment to.

Não sou muito apologista de NY’s resolutions mas se tivesse que escolher uma, seria esta: ser feliz. Para mim a Endometriose tem sido um osso muitíssimo duro de roer desde muito nova. (Talvez tb daí me ter tornado Vegan - não me tragam mais ossos destes pff. 😂) O que é facto é que me tornei diferente, não só nos meus hábitos alimentares, mas essencialmente na minha força, na minha confiança e na minha aceitação daquilo que sou ou não sou capaz. Continuo a ser muitíssimo ambiciosa apesar de todas as limitações que a doença nos impõe. E por isso partilho esta ideia convosco: nunca deixem de sonhar. Nunca deixem de lutar por aquilo que vos faz verdadeiramente felizes.

I said on Thursday that I have a little update. Then I fell asleep before I posted it and have had a migraine so I haven’t posted anything. Oops! 😅 » I saw my physio on Thursday. In fact, with how I’m tracking along, it’s the last time I’ll be seeing him for some time. Not for forever but for quite a while rather than every 3 weeks.  I’m really super damn proud of myself about that, I’ve worked really hard everyday to get to this point! I’ve got to keep working just as hard to keep up such progress though. « I need to continue resting my knee for the next few weeks. It’s a minor set back from my last appointment but only a minor one. I can start introducing some light stretching when my knee is ready before following the old plan of reintroducing myself to light work at dance and taekwon-do once a week when the time comes. » Hopefully I should be back laughing, trying not to knee myself in the head, sometime in February. Until then I’ll just be, you guessed it, photographing everybody else at the dance studio. I know I talk about it a lot but behind the camera is somewhere I’m truly happy. Less dance time 👎🏽 but more photography time 👍🏽
HI! The change room was empty so I took a happy post-workout smiling selfie. And then got my almond milk iced latte spiked with actual milk and worked for 6 hours and had to hold in death.

You cannot cure auto immune disease. All you can do is control your immune system, so it doesn’t attack itself. Yesterday I had my infusion. I’ve no immune system. I can’t do much about that but I can sweat out some toxins and get my head in the game  #autoimmunedisease #rheumatoidarthritis #chronicillness #sweat #chronicpain #fitness #inspiration #motivation #strongwomen #thisgirlcan #justdoit #cardio #hiit #bike #cycle #sufferfest #sufferlandria #princessleia #starwars
Such a troublesome area for me 😔 pretty sure it is permanently/constantly inflamed. Wondering if this is the location site of my arthritis (will have to check with GP next time I see her, wouldn't be surprised if it is). In addition to those symptoms, does anyone else experience some itching as well? So irritating 😖 #coccyxpain #coccyx #coccydynia #arthritis #osteoarthritis  #fibromyalgiawarrior #fibromyalgiafighter #fibromyalgia #fibromyalgiaawareness #fibro #fibrofighter #fibrowarrior #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #chronicillnessfighter #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #fibrolife #fightingpain #chronicfatigue #cfs #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicfatiguefighter #sympyoms #tailbone #tailbonepain

I just want to thank everyone who believes my pain and disabled people. I’m currently in such a fucked up situation that I never wanted to be in. I just wanted my wheelchair and thought it would be cool to have it from a person I looked up to a lot. I’m glad I’m taking time to enjoy life away from social media but I just wanted to hop on and thank you all so much. Thank you for helping me create a safe place and community of people who know what it’s like to look completely heathy but feel like you’re dying. #disabledandcute #disabled #potsie #fibromyalgia #fibro #fibrowarrior #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronic #invisibledisability #mentalhealth #spoonie  #pots #cfs #medicines #gp #gastroparesis #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #flareup #lgbtq #disabledandgay #disabledyoutuber #youtuber
