Mai er syringomyelimåneden. Dette er en lidelse som kan oppstå både hos mennesker og dyr. Hunderasen cavalier king charles spaniel er svært utsatt for denne forferdelige lidelsen. Syringomyeli oppstår når hodeskallen er for liten for hjernen, slik at hjernen presses ned i ryggraden. Dette fører til sterke smerter og såkalt "selvmordshodepine". Syringomyeli hos denne rasen er i all hovedsak menneskeskapt. Ifølge forskning fra England har cirka 70 prosent av cavalier king charles spaniel denne tilstanden. Dyrebeskyttelsen Norge jobber for å få stanset uetisk avl av familiedyr.

**I miss the gym** - I never thought I’d say that! 😮😂😂 I’ve not been able to go for a few weeks because of my intercranial pressures being so messed up (and fighting this infection). I think some people thought I was a bit crazy joining a gym given the health journey I’ve been on over the last few years - you wouldn’t normally associate a gym as somewhere for someone whose body regularly can’t tolerate being upright! 😂. I can’t do a lot - a short exercise bike cycle and maybe a walk on the treadmill. I can’t push my heart rate past a certain BPM (as i start to black out), and I can’t go past a certain speed of walking (as the impact of foot to floor irritates the bottom of my brain). Everything I do is through pain, but I honestly think that makes me even stronger - who gives a **** about getting a bit out of breath compared to my normal daily pain levels 🤷♀️😂. It’s actually easier exercising with gym equipment than otherwise - more points of reference to supplement my poor balance (and lots of things to hold onto), and if I did need help, there are people around... ❤️ I won’t lie, I did feel really self conscious at first 😳 (using my stick, tripping over things, looking weak and wobbly) but everyone at @SilverbackGym is really lovely, and I soon realised everyone else was *way* more concerned with their own workout than anything I was doing😂😂. I do have to be careful about what I do and carefully balance my ‘energy accounts’. Once or twice I’ve expended too much energy in the gym and left myself too fatigued to easily breathe or talk at the end of the day. . Can I also just big up accounts like @stayinthearena and @strongmantye on here for making me feel gyms *are* somewhere for chronically ill & disabled folk too 💛. Without them I’d have no point of reference 🤷♀️. And to my husband @macrae_ian for inspiring me with his own fitness journey 😍 . . #gym#fitness#health#chronicillness
Some side snoot with heart paws for @cavalierpixel !!! ———- Still rocking my Love & Strength bandana all week to spread awareness for Canine Chiari and Syringomyelia and raise funds for SM research! Did you want a bandana but wasn’t able to get one before they sold out? DM @nukas.choice
The many faces of living with chronic illness and chronic pain. Inspired by @thesartorialspine I feel it is important to share the reality of living with multiple complex conditions and fluctuating levels of chronic pain and fatigue. I have good days and bad days, but I am always in pain, it is a constant in my life. The only difference is that some days I am able to tolerate all the symptoms and function in pain a bit better (usually due to an extended periods of rest, a combination of medication and mindfulness/pacing which causes pain levels to stabilise for a short while) and some days it completely floors me. I have days where I am unable to function at all. It takes alot of energy and effort to 'fake being well'. Perhaps you have seen me IRL looking like the top three photos, where I have had enough energy to put on my 'wellness mask', faking my best smile and mustering enough energy to leave the house for a few hours to do something 'normal'. Pain is always lingering in the background and the fatigue creeps up the more I engage in 'normal' activity. Not many people have seen me on my very worst days. I do not allow it and do not find it easy to allow people to see me at my most vulnerable and when I am a mess, literally falling to pieces because my body won't function and it hurts to move and even breathe at times. Only a select few I allow to see me on my worst days. But people in general may assume the bad days don't happen because they only see me on the rare good days (which can turn into bad days quite quickly if I don't rest, plan, medicate and pace properley). So this is me showing you me at my 'best' and my 'worst' despite still suffering and dealing with pain, fatigue and a whole host of other symptoms in every single photo. If make up and blow drying your hair could magically cure all illnesses, symptoms, pain and fatigue that would be an incredible thing! As @thesartorialspine describes it - when you live with chronic illness you have an indoor
To most people a cold is just a cold 🤧 but to me and others with chronic conditions it’s like a lorry has run you over and still on top of you 🚛 Everything hurts more than normal, eyes are burning and my head hurts even more to lift off the pillow 🤦🏽♀️ anyone who knows me knows I don’t do well in being stuck in one place, I get extra bored 😂 I just hope it’s not that bad and I can get up later as last time it was a week in bed 🛌 . . . . #chronicillness#itsjustacold#chiarimalformation#syringomyelia#chronicpain#warrior
On Monday my neurosurgeon told me I not only have Chiari Malformation bur also have Syringomyelia. Syringomyelia is a progressive Spinal Cord Disease that damages the spinal cord. Living with these invisible chronic illnesses is beyond hard. I cant even lift one of my
Margot and I visited Woofstock today🐾 It’s was our first time attending and I seriously felt like a kid in a candy store at the @Wholeheartedpets x @Canadiantire booth with all the goodies they had for Margot. #ad I am mostly excited about @Petco products like #wholeheartedpets now being available at Canadian Tire. Drop by their super cute booth today to learn more! Also, follow along my IG stories for all the behind the scenes fun💖 #petco#ctlovespets
This patient presented with numbness and weakness in his legs. He had a spinal cord tumor on his MRI with a syrinx extending both towards the head and feet. The tumor was right at the anterior aspect of the cord. We did a T1 corpectomy. I had a heart surgeon available if we needed to take the sternum out of the way. Surgery went well. The tumor was very vascular, but separated from the cord well. Neuromonitoring was key and very helpful. Patient has made a good recovery. #spinalcordtumor#spinalcordinjury#syringomyelia#neurosurgery#neuromonitoring
Love & Strength That's what this bandana is all about! I bet you all have noticed our new charity bandana! We made this bandana together with @pupnamedaria her mom. 100% of the profits will be donated to charity and to raise awareness about Syringomelia and canine Chiari malformation! How cool is that!? We have sold a 100 bandanas in the past couple of days! Do you guys think we should restock?! Please let us know below. We will put you on a list. This way we can decide if it's reasonable to restock! Love, Aria, Nuka and our moms! 💜💙
Читаю я много литературы и разные жанры, пожалуй, только к фантастике равнодушна. Эта книга понравится всем, кто заботится о своем здоровье. В ней я нашла много полезной для себя информации. Например, что происходит с нашим организмом, когда туда попадает различная пища. Вроде бы все это звучит сложно, формулы химические приводятся, но автор об этом рассказывает очень просто и с юмором, в книге он приводит очень много запоминающихся примеров, тут много очень прикольных аналогий, который сможет понять любой далекий от медицины человек. Что я для себя лично взяла: у меня нарушена транспортная функция, то есть не синтезируются и не доходят до "адресата" белки. На протяжении многих лет я экспериментировала на организме с помощью разных диет (расскажу о любой диете). Издевалась, мда и довела свою "машину" до состояния непригодности ))) Для восстановления начала курс галокамеры (для раскрытия и нормальной работы альвеол), ввожу в рацион жиры (рыбий жир и сливочное масло ежедневно для появления в организме сурфактанта), продолжаю активно двигаться для избавления гипоксии в теле и на

There was a time when I was young the corn fields that surrounded me just were annoying! For miles it was all I saw and I could not wait to move far away and run from the mundane! Now, sitting on my country porch the fields are one of my greatest joys and peace in my journey! Calming! Surrounded by the miracle of the farmer who plants the tinniest seed with faith that it will produce provision! No guarantees, no certainty. Faith that if you sow.. provision comes! My heart is changing guys, I mean just in the past couple months a “new” person is blooming! I hit a few bottoms in the last 6 months.. dangerous ones!! One thing I know is even when you hit what looks like your bottoms IF you allow it can become the comeback!! The view is the same... seems boring to many... to me it looks like a beautiful destination of provision!! Allow the journey, the circumstance, the pain, the rejection, the fear... grow into the provision that is not for the now, the momentary but eternity! #beautifuldestinations#change#createinmeanewheart #givemeyoureyes#country#cornfield#countrylife#beautyfromashes#chronicillness #syringomyelia #incurable#calm#peace#destination#myjourney#mystory#clouds#sky#myheart#grow#

One of the things about finding out your sick is that you learn how to enjoy life different through different eyes. I've said it before, but I really notice it more every day. Like expanding a photo to notice all it's fine detail.
Thank you all so much for your love and support for Margot💖 As you can see it’s business as usual for Margot despite her SM/CM diagnosis.Her sass is here to stay and I am ok with it🙈Tomorrow is spa day and the sass is going to skyrocket.
