Summer fun 💦 Today was another good day for the pool! Now I'm sitting here editing a little video for my son who took his camera into the pool today. He was so happy when he worked out it was waterproof and could record himself and his brothers 💙 "Mum can you show all your friends?"

Die Blutabnahme lief heute alles andere als optimal, aber was lässt man nicht alles über sich ergehen, um vordergründig die Thrombozyten Werte kontrollieren zu lassen.

14-year-old Nasser stepped on a landmine on 7 December while he, his uncle and cousin were watching over the family's sheep near Taiz, Yemen. He was rushed to MSF's surgical hospital 50km away in the city of Mocha. “The bone was completely shattered so there was nothing to left to save,” says Faroukh, an MSF physiotherapist, helping him to walk in this picture. Nasser finds the crutches difficult to use as his right thumb was amputated after he was shot a couple of years ago. .

Day 9 is another day off from my 10x10 capsule wardrobe because I have physiotherapy on Thursday’s. It’s always a painful experience that requires rest to recover from so that my body will benefit get the best out of it for the next 4-5 days. So I always go from pjs to these black crepe @jeanswest shorts and a @jockey cami and back to pjs again, usually with post physio bunny cuddles which are excellent in aiding recovery. 🐰💖 #syw19 #shopyourwardrobe #10x10 #capsulewardrobe #upanddressed #babewithamobilityaid #disabledandcute #hotpersoninawheelchair #ootd #fashion #style #whatiwore #styleover30 #instafashion #instastyle #shopping #spooniefashion #wheelchairfashion #wheelchairstyle #bemindful #wheelchair #crutches #crps #dystonia #fibromyalgia #chronicillness #chronicpain #invisibleillness #spoonielife #butyoudontlooksick

I used to spend my time day dreaming, but now I'm turning those dreams into actions.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm Ann, and 8 months ago I broke my ankle. Typically breaking a bone is looked at as a tragedy. But it's one of the best things that's ever happened to me. My bone will eventually heal but the lessons I've learned on this journey have been invaluable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I encourage you to try to view whatever it is that you're going through in a different light. Did it teach you a lesson? Were you able to connect with more people? Did it empower you when you overcame it? Did it humble you? Did it give you insight you could use to help others? Did you learn something new? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've learned from my injury is that #brokenbonesdontstop me from following my dreams, meeting new friends, traveling the world, and trying new things. My life has become quite the adventure now, and I refuse to let anything hold be back from continuing on with my journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #travelblogger #cast #brokenbone #brokenankle #motivationalspeakers #dailyencouragement #crutches #injuredlife #tights #inspiration #hope #positivevibes #thetravelwomen #womenwhotravel #dametraveler #daydreaming #inspire #typeonediabetic #typeonediabetes #brittle #osteopenia #disabled #overcome #encouragement

Current situation.. getting old sucks. 😉 #crutchessuck #crutches  #acebandage messed my knee up. Wish I did it doing something cool. But nope
Home after dislocating my knee cap. At least 6 weeks recovery time. Funny thing is it never even happened at kickboxing, play fighting with the wife and it just went. No training or kickboxing for a while. #ouch #kickboxing #injured #training #freakinjury #crutches
Recovering from surgery. Its been a little over a week n 1/2. Progress is going well. Back to Phy therapy today. Crutches 6 weeks, 3-6 months full recovery time. 3 more days until I can get back in the hot tub. You never really realize how much you use something until you cant. So far its been chillin on the couch watching Duck Dynasty, SOA marathons and good ole music to pass the time. Thank god I dont need help because other than the kids its been me taking care of me. They've been great helpers though. #countryroads #countryraptunes #backwoods #countrylife #countrygirl #hipsurgery #crutches #cantwaittowalk #relearning #thestruggleisreal #countryrock #planningmysummer #needabucketlist #concerts #tennessee #lookingforloveinallthewrongplaces #missingyou #adventures #memories #youshouldbehere #ineedyou #funnyhowyoucanforgetsoeasy #wishyouallthebest

Went to the podiatrist with Jacob yesterday and legit wanted to steal these old ass crutches to use for photography. Sadly I could not! #crutches #antique #vintage #old
I miss walking. And I also miss #mexico. The snow was fun for a second but the icy slushy leftovers are basically impossible to traverse on #crutches. Would it be so wrong to just flee and hide out in #baja for the last 2.5 weeks on these things??? . . #wbw #waybackwednesday #snurlough
Two weeks down on these crutches and uh... not exactly sure how much longer to go. 😔  I have a follow-up appointment TOMORROW with my Dr, who wants to write me a referral for an orthopedic surgeon.  There's nerve damage which feels like numbness/ pins and needles in three of my toes, as well as a few areas on the bottom of my feet. 👣😥 . . . Anyways... That's my little update, thank you everyone for checking on me!! I really do appreciate it. I'll continue to post updates as this thing progresses.💋 . .. ... .... ... .. . .. ... .... ... .. . .. ... .... ... .. . .. ... .... #crutchlife#outfitoftheday #wiw #lacedress #motd #crutches #momlife #silverhair #boot  #hairoftheday #crutchessuck #hairfashion #dyedgirls #dressup #mamalife #parentingblogger #staypositive #brokentoe #slay #motherhoodthroughinstagram #goodvibes

Removing crutches. It means no bad days. No more being reliant on factors that aren’t constant. You know what’s constant? The weights in the gym. That’s about it. Things aren’t always going to be the same when you get to the gym.. maybe you forget your headphones or you didn’t get enough caffeine or sleep or for some people, if the gym is empty they don’t really workout. (I’m not talking to these people— these people are the casuals)  If you are really looking to progress steadily over a lifetime of lifting you can’t have any crutches. So do away with the phone and the caffeine and the training partners for sometime, not forever but just for a few months until you’re well adapted. Watch your training sessions and see how much you’ve been reliant on these factors in order for you to get a “good workout”— they will suck for a while but I believe it’s worth it, it’s at least worth not being addicted to caffeine. Get used to training on bad days then you’ll realize that they really don’t exist. it’s all up to you weather you really go for it or not. Motivation is internal.  #choemethod #bodybuilding #crutches #excuses #gym #oldschoolbodybuilding #training #coffee #muscle #motivation #inspiration #bolo

This is the standing up version of me. This only happens when i go to the toilet or have to move to my bed. (Ok i do it a couple more times because i have to keep moving a bit per day)  I fell. Saturdaynight/ sundaymorning. Off my bike. The cyclepath was very slippery and it just happened en now i’ve broken my ankle (and bruisend my left upper arm) wednesday the 23rd they are gonna operate my ankleand give me two metal plates and screws. I am screwed! Lol.  Yeah, so. That’s it. More time to draw :) . . Dit is de staande versie van mij. Dit gebeurt alleen als ik naar het toilet ga of naar mijn bed moet gaan. (Ok, ik doe het nog een paar keer omdat ik een beetje in beweging moet blijven per dag) Ik viel. Zaterdagavond / zondagmorgen. Van mijn fiets. Het fietspad was erg glad en het gebeurde gewoon en nu heb ik mijn enkel gebroken (en mijn linker bovenarm gekneusd). Woensdag de 23e gaan ze mijn enkel opereren en krijg ik twee metalen plaatjes en schroeven. Ik ben de sigaar! Lol. Ja, zo is het. Meer tijd om te tekenen :) . . #tamaraboon #tamaraboonselfportrait #kawaii #brokenankle #crutches #illustration #illustrator #instaart #art

Keep doing what you love! #10yearchallenge #crutches #aclrecovery #fencing #persist #hustle #keepgoing
Ok so I'm jumping on board the #10yearchallenge, couldn't resist. Where do I start? My life is so vastly different... This first photo is me walking along the lake in Queenstown NZ, taking mobility for granted with two legs that work... probably being a brat like I was, thinking life would never change. Limb loss happens to other people right?🤔 The second and third photos are me today... a completely changed person in every way. I've had people say "I'm so sorry you lost your leg" and 2 months ago I would have said, "yeah, me too". But not today. Not now. I've gained so much since losing my leg, I just wouldn't swap the emotional and mental level I'm now on. So, here's to 10 years. You didn't beat me, you refined me and I thank you for that🌟 #amputeelife #amputee #amputeegirl #crutches #crutchlife #oneleg #oneleggedgirl #crps #disability #amputation #leg #life #love #active #byronbay #queenstown
Day 8 wearing the flowy black jersey @ASOS dress from day 5 with my @eyebuydirect glasses and a ceramic Celtic pendant from Banratty Castle in Ireland. Sent to me as a gift, I’ve sadly not visited myself.  It’s definitely a day for soft, comfy clothes that feel like pjs while I’m forced to rest and recover. My dystonia and CRPS aren’t coping with the heat or my need to briefly leave my house a few times in the last week. I’m really enjoying wearing my jewellery and brooches daily again like I used to before I got sick. It’s such a waste to save them for days when I’m able/have to go out. There’s something cheerful about wearing them even when all I can do myself is get a photo and make a cup of coffee.  #syw19 #shopyourwardrobe #10x10 #capsulewardrobe #upanddressed #babewithamobilityaid #disabledandcute #hotpersoninawheelchair #ootd #fashion #style #whatiwore #styleover30 #instafashion #instastyle #shopping #spooniefashion #wheelchairfashion #wheelchairstyle #bemindful #wheelchair #crutches #crps #dystonia #fibromyalgia #chronicillness #chronicpain #invisibleillness #spoonielife #butyoudontlooksick
I was contemplating this morning just how much easier life is now since I relinquished my dysfunctional left leg. Everything is just so much better. Even a simple shopping day I can now do with ease and no pain. It's funny when I express this to someone with two biological legs that actually work, it's just something they cannot get their head around. And rightly so, if a limb works there's no issue in that but if it doesn't, life becomes very difficult, I'd go as far to say, impossible. My amputation has not only given me my life back but now my outlook on everything has changed... I'm on a completely different level mentally, emotionally and physically and all for the better. I've been trying to understand that shift, but even so, if I don't understand it, I'm extremely grateful for what I've gained in my loss🌟 #amputee #amputeegirl #amputeelife #crutchlife #oneleg #oneleggedgirl #crutches #life #love #disabledgirl #crps
Since starting this page about 7 months ago, I've come in touch with some beautiful people. I originally set up a profile so I could track my progress but I've found it's been much more than that. I've met other amputees that I stand in awe of🙌 and I have learnt so much from them. Another group though I want to address, are all you amazing people battling #crps. It's an insidious disease (technically it's a syndrome but let's not get technical) and one wouldn't...couldn't,  possibly know what it's like when it gets under your skin... I've had many ask my opinion on amputation. From my perspective it is THE BEST thing I've ever done. You would have to live with a sick dysfunctional limb to understand that, but letting it go was so  liberating, I can't explain the feeling of freedom that came with that decision. Had I kept that leg, I would never have walked again and where I'm more than grateful is on my walks I do every morning now. I'll never take my mobility for granted ever again! There is a small risk that  CRPS can spread after surgery but it was a risk I was willing to take. For anyone fighting this hideous beast, don't give up, have a plan in place if you possibly can because circumstances can change. Don't let a Dr dictate to you (who isn't living with CRPS I might add) how the rest of your life is going to be. Many more doctors are open to amputation for it these days, especially here in Australia. Feel free to DM me if I can help in any way🌟🏃‍♀️ #amputee #amputeegirl #amputeelife #crps #oneleggedgirl #crutches #crutchlife #byronbay #disabledgirl
Something that has surfaced in my quest to secure my mobility is the fact that now I'm not quite as proficient on my crutches as I used to be... but herein lies the problem. An amputees dream is to be able to walk again and in a perfect world that would be fine but in reality that's not the case. We can go along quite well on a prosthetic for some time with no issues but to think there'd never be a problem would be foolish thinking... A few days ago I made a series of videos where I showed walking with my prosethic opposed to walking with crutches. What I realized that day was the pain in my shoulders I experienced for the short time I was on my crutches again. Because I'm a girl who covers all her bases, I realised I'm not prepared to lose how proficient I've become in using them, even though I aspire to full time prosethic use. After all, I do only have one leg,🤔😳 who knows at any given time when I may be without my prosthetic for whatever reason and then be back on crutches for a period of time. So to ensure I'm always mobile whether it's prosethic use or crutches, I'm going to do a day every week on crutches regardless of whether my prosethic is there, I really don't want to lose how easy they are for me to use. So here I am, doing laps of a shopping center yet again because our Aussie summer is just too damn hot to be away from air-con! Here's to mobility no matter what measures we take to achieve that🌟 #amputee #amputeegirl #amputeelife #crutchlife #oneleg #crutches #oneleggedgirl #life #love #crps
Pondering how I'll go today... I've got a nice bruise from my first accidental bump since my op, just innocently tranfertransfering from lounge to wheelchair 2 days ago and end up bumping Patrick not being careful enough! This is where good sense has to kick in but at the same time holding to my goal of a 3k walk each morning! Well, I've donned the lidocaine patch, it's kicking in so let the walk begin... #amputee #amputeegirl #amputeelife #crutchlife #oneleg #crutches #oneleggedgirl #life #femaleamputee #disabledgirl #disability #amputation
Sooo, this is where I'm at... I don't know what day exactly this happened but I'm much more comfortable on my prosethic now than I am on my crutches. There was a time not long ago where I could totally understand why someone would just stay on crutches because learning to walk again is really hard!  But now when I'm on my crutches it's really frustrating and actually much harder than being on my leg! I'm posting 4 videos from putting my leg on to walking with it on, and then taking it off and walking with it off. This whole process of liners, the leg itself, getting it right to walk in, then walking, then getting it off again used to be the biggest hassle but I'm finding now it's actually not an issue at all. The problem is the perpetual rash these days from always being in a liner as the last photo shows. So my first question is: Did anyone else feel like giving up at that beginning stage? I certainly did, I thought crutches were soooo much easier. There is a period where it's just easier not to deal with new beginnings of a prosthetic. Second question: How long did it take others to find that tipping point that leg is easier than crutches? Third question: Is there anyone reading this waiting for that tipping point to come? From my experience, I'm so glad I have pushed so hard over the last 6 months to get my mobility back, believe me, there were several times I could have easily given up! There are so many things that come up for an amputee that has the ability to knock us flat but when that happens, keep pushing because the end result is so worth it!!!🌟🏃‍♀️ #amputee #amputeegirl #amputeelife #crutchlife #oneleg #oneleggedgirl #crutches #femaleamputee #disabledgirl #disability #amputation #crps #prostheticleg #prosthetic
