Alright, I’ve been on this food journey of mine for about 5 years now (diagnosed in 2012, changed my diet in 2013). Tonight, the parents I’m babysitting for asked me for my dietary restrictions and I told them I try to be as gluten free as possible. So, they picked me up some curry quinoa and some sesame/ginger tofu - bless their hearts. HOWEVER I also try to be #grainfree and #soyfree as well! Giving up soy, piece of cake. Giving up grain - well, not as easy. Having them at the same time (because well... FREE food really is my biggest weakness 😩) caused HAVOC on my stomach! Huge fan of curry but this quinoa and tofu combo is really beating me up! Funny enough, I commented on my fav #chicago GF shop @wheatsend today and will be ordering some GF goodies to come my way in Denver - because I miss them so much! I’m luckily in the healthiest state for me to live in but WHY OH WHY did I think this meal could be such a good idea?! #autoimmunedisease is no joke. #lessonlearned #fridayrantover Happy weekend and #happy420day everyone!!!!

These little owl Warmies are a huge part of my daily self care. Heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds and they feel great on my RA hands! And they smell like lavender!!! 😷🙂🦉

Today marks 4 years since I developed my first MS symptom. I wouldn’t have wanted to spend it any other way than with the woman who held my hand throughout the entire journey of figuring out what was wrong with me 🧡

I've been knocked down with a nasty virus and unable to stomach much more than broth and water with lemon. My stomach hasn't felt quite right but hubby came to the rescue today with this Greek inspired souvlaki chicken, wedges and some spring mix for dinner. First thing I've been able to keep down in a few days and it was delish!

A few shots of a dreamy morning walk in my woods from a few weeks ago. Nature therapy is my favorite kind of therapy! It was warm, the birds were chirping, and all was quiet. I absolutely love peaceful mornings like this. Mornings have gotten significantly easier for me over the last few months, and going outside soon after I wake up always gets my day headed in the right direction! ❤️ #rheumatoidarthritismama

É estranho conseguir ter tantas sensações e emoções antes mesmo que o dia termine. Tem dia que a quantidade de remédio que eu tomo nem me assusta muito, mas tem dia que quero jogar todos eles pro alto, gritar que eu não quero mais isso, e que por favor, devolvam minha vida de volta. Vai entender essa loucura que estou vivendo, uma hora estou sorrindo, e quase no mesmo momento estou chorando. Me sinto uma estrela que brilha solitária na imensidão do céu azul de uma noite, sem ninguém que entenda e sinta de verdade o que se passa aqui dentro de mim. Acredito que o mais complicado de assimilar seja o fato dessas doenças não terem cura. De ser "pra sempre". Que fase da vida mais difícil de passar. Eu não achei que fosse ser tão difícil psicologicamente de superar tudo isso, mas ficou pior do que eu pensei, tudo ficou tão diferente. Continuo seguindo em frente, buscando todos os dias algo diferente que possa me trazer paz na mente, paz na alma. 
Um desabafo por dia. 
É isso por hoje. 🌻

Y’all I’m so fucking happy I’m in tears. My doctor called and we upped my dosage of pain meds, starting me on a Crohns medication and setting me up with an appointment with the pain clinic 😭. Finally finally finally getting something done and someone helping me! After so long and praying so much I’m finally getting help. They did find an abnormal growth but they removed it and it was benign we just have to keep an eye on things to see if it returns. Finally remission is in sight! #autoimmunedisease #anemic #crohns #crohnsdisease #crohnsandcolitis #colitis #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicallyfabulous #gastroparesis #ibs #ibd #invisibleillness #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieproblem #spooniestrong

I try so hard to find memes and quotes that aren’t the same ones we always see, but somehow I always see the same ones I spent so much time looking for go up on other accounts as soon as I post them 🤔🤦🏻‍♀️ it’s getting kind of discouraging tbh because it takes time to find new memes that haven’t been posted a lot. I truly don’t mind anyone reposting when they give credit, just like I give credit when I repost. But it’s getting hard to keep up with new posts no one has seen a lot before and I kinda feel like I don’t want to put in the time when they’re going to be reposted without credit right after anywayyyyy sooooo. But I’m still trying because I want to keep giving y’all good stuff to relate to 💗

So Monday was Benlysta infusion day, and Monday night usually would have been injection night. But instead we switched to Cellcept. Husband was off work till wednesday and with just getting my infusion we were hoping that would compensate for not having the shot while the Cellcept started to work. Thankfully it didn’t make me sick. Tuesday and Wednesday I felt pretty crumby and just worn out. Had a awful headache all day Wednesday but things improved a bit yesterday and I’m feeling much better than I did last week today. So I’m hoping this is the start of more good days ahead. I’ve noticed my body temp feels more in control and I think my face is less puffy and red. Taking it one day at a time but feeling hopeful. #sle #lupus #autoimmunedisease #autoimmune #lupuslife #lupusawareness #chronicillness #chronicdisease #disabled #findacure #benlysta #cellcept

I am so proud of her. In the middle of a fun time at open gym tonight she stopped herself, came to me and told me she felt low! (Finger poke 58). Her sweet little fingers shaky as she tried to feed her self gummies 💔...
To get through 2 hours of gymnastics—-85% reduces temp basal. One applesauce. One small pack of gummies. This disease is dumb 🤨

Until my own diagnosis three years ago I had no idea this disease existed, but it does. More than 33 million people suffer from Spondylitis worldwide. I feel I’m lucky as my condition isn’t as debilitating as I’ve read it is for others. Before I started on Humira my life was definitely more affected by my autoimmune disease. My body was stiff, I had chronic back pain, chronic fatigue, and iritis on a regular basis. Now I feel I live a fairly normal life, thanks to Humira, regular exercise, and being more aware of things that cause a flare up in my body. One thing that remains the same is that I am always exhausted the day after I have been very busy and productive. It just wipes me out for an entire day after. But I’ll take it! Gives me a great reason to take it easy every once in a while. 😉 PS: Did you know Imagine Dragon’s front man Dan Reynolds is a fellow AS warrior???!!! 😎 #onlythecoolkidshaveit #ankylosingspondylitis #thisASlife #spondywhat #ASwarrior #spotspondy #thinkspondy #invisibleillness #chronicdisease #chronicillness #chronicfatigue #autoimmunedisease #spoonie #ASawareness

Getting older is only fun until you’re about 21....ha ha...from that point on it’s not so much fun. 
Things that you had no idea were a part of your body hurt, those cute pants from high school no longer fit, and you need glasses to read from a tablet that you need your kids to teach you how to use.
Despite it all, however, growing older gives us chances to fall in love, play with our children, and gain life experiences that can never be forgotten. Some days are more tough on me than others because of my health but I have to remember the importance of pushing through it.  I’ve got great kids that have helped me through some really tough days. I know that it has been hard on them. I hope that as they grow older they can be positive about life and grateful for the experience.

The things I do to recover after a flare. 😁😝 It's not that bad, really, I just don't like plain carrot juice.

Thanks, @bolthousefarms, for the nutrients. I'm going to try the mango one next!

Increasing Tresiba 1u at a time 💁 When I was on Lantus I was taking 15u a day. From everything I saw I figured I would have to cut my Tresiba dose in half. WRONG. lol I do okay on a dose of Tresiba until suddenly, it stops doing its job. I'll battle post mealtime highs no matter how I eat, and also higher fasting numbers (any time of day). Maybe I already said all of this on this platform 😂 it's so hard to keep up when you're a part of t1d forums and such!

Anyway; being a t1d for 6 yrs now, maybe I've just hit the point of needing more basal in my life 🙃 I'm not sure. Anyone else have a certain time after diagnosis that they had to significantly increase their basal? How much basal are you on? I know my body is no one else's, I'm just curious! 😁 I don't feel like I'm insulin resistant though; this porblem only crept up when I started Tresiba 3 months ago. 
Baffled betic here, who knows 💃

Taking this holidaze as an opportunity to discuss hemp and Cannabidiol, or CBD as you may know it. CBD is one of 113 known cannabinoids derived from cannabis plants. It has been shown to deliver similar benefits to medical THC, but without any of the high. CBD has become widely available due to the fact that it can be derived from hemp, the non-psychotropic member of the cannabis family. Hemp  is an incredible versatile plant. Besides the healing properties of CBD, hemp also provides us with a more sustainable form of pulp than trees for the creation of paper goods. Hemp seeds have also been added to the list of “super foods” due to the high content of two essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6.  Hemp seeds are also protein dense seeds, since they have comparably more than both chia and flax. Professor Callaway’s 2004 study found that hemp seeds are also a great source of vitamin E and minerals such as phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc. Minerals which can do all sorts of wonders for the body’s systems. Along with the consumption of seeds themselves, CBD oil has become a common supplement that many people are adding into their health regiment. CBD has a wide variety of perks due to the way it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. Endocannabinoids and its receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. While the cannabinoid system preforms different tasks in different kinds of tissue, it’s purpose remains about the same. It works to stabilize internal homeostasis regardless of the external environment. Research has shown that CBD, as well as other Cannabinoids, have a variety of healing properties - from helping with casual headaches and nausea to controlling serious ailments such as epilepsy, autoimmune disease and cancer, just to name a few. CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory as well, working with all of your insides, from soft tissue to the nervous system. Hemp CBD has drastic improved my quality of life, it has been a key ingredient to thriving successfully as someone who is immunocompromised.

I finally got my home IV fluids approved! My second round of IV home infusion is now complete. My gasteroparesis is getting worse and I have been in the hospital every other week for fluids and pain management. Since this is not sustainable I spoke with my specialist who agreed starting me on fluids at home should help.

My endocrinologist also told me that getting more hydration would help keep me out of DKA. So that's a positive. 
I already feel a difference and am hoping to get my fluids bumped up at my next visit.

Today, i said goodbye to Iwo “Big Head” Jima. He gave me seven amazing years of love and adoration and goofiness. He went in for emergency surgery this afternoon and no one, not even the doctors, were prepared for what they found. 
This morning, while doing his surgical paperwork, we sat on the floor of the exam room together, which i never do because it is so hard for me to do. But for whatever reason, today seemed like the day to sit with him. He wanted to hold hand, which I’m thankful for. We got to snuggle and hold hands once last time. If i had know it would be, i would have held on a little longer. the doctor and i decided it was best to leave him hooked up to the anesthesia so that he wouldn’t have to feel any pain from waking up, so holding his paw was the last time i saw him being him. I brought him his beaver and My roommate and i hugged and hugged him and he got hear what a good boy he was one last time. And i got to tell him i’m so sorry that this happened. 
He was the kindest gentle giant. He won everyone over, even people afraid of big dogs. He loved having my friends kids drag him all over the yard by his ears. He was such a happy boy and in love with everyone and the world. I wish i had known we had so little time left. 
He was my rock during and after the divorce and the move. He was my best friend. And I don’t even know what to do without him. We are all in shock at this outcome and i’m positively gutted.

Cashew Milk & 🍫milkshake: Unlike almond milk, cashew milk involves no straining and has a creaminess that I love😋
🥛:
Pour a cup of raw cashews (good prices @traderjoes and @costco or check the bulk section @sprouts for sales)in a cup or mason jar and cover with filter water. Place in the fridge to soak overnight.
In the morning strain and rinse and place cashews in a high speeed blender with 3-3/12 cups filtered water👌🏼 in this batch, I also added 2 dates, a pinch of pink salt, and a splash of vanilla. Blend until smooth and creamy😋💛
Tonight I added a cup of creamy cashew milk, 1/2 avocado, 1 1/2 scoops of @juiceplus chocolate complete (could replace with another chocolate protein powder or 2T cocoa powder and drops of stevia to taste) a splash of vanilla, and one frozen banana into the blender for a creamy chocolate milkshake topped with organic strawberries, @eschocolate 72%dark chocolate, and @traderjoes unsweetened coconut shreds😋 An easy way to get my loves 👨🏼‍🚒👧🏼👶🏼👦🏼some healthy fats in a way that they enjoyed (I doubled the recipe for our fam)💛💛

Just resting my long thick legs!  Ha ha!  At nearly 5’ 10” I have spent most of my life being the tall girl. I’m happy that it never felt like a bad thing to me. I was aspiring to be 6’ so I was actually a bit disappointed that I quit growing. My children now make comments about their bodies. They ask why their legs are so fat. I tell them, “You take after me, your legs are strong and perfect.” If I had spent my entire life complaining about my big legs I would not be able to say that. But I like my legs, even if I could slim and firm them a bit😊. Are you setting a good example for your kids and saying nice things about the amazing vessel you live in?  It is never too late to start!

I think it's crazy how people are always so worried about what they look like or what they're wearing. I know with Summer coming up so many people are so worried about what they look like in shorts. After losing 241 lb of course I have loose skin everywhere. My legs are probably the worst than my stomach. But I don't care what people think if I'm comfortable in my body. I work hard to get where i am. There's no perfect body on Earth even the prettiest people and celebrities still have their flaws. There's been many celebrities admitting what they dont like about themselves. Just wanna say dont let the fear of hating your body keep you from being happy this summer. You are beautiful no matter what size you are or what you look like. ❤ -

Autoimmune diseases and conditions are the result of an immune system that is not longer healthy. Restoring your health begins with healing your gut since 80% of the immune immune system is located in the gut. Leaky gut happens when the tight junctions holding the intestinal wall together become loose, allowing dangerous substances through and into the bloodstream. ~
Leaky gut is typically caused by our modern lifestyle which consists of toxins, inflammatory causing foods, chronic stress, and medication, all of which overwhelm our system. When toxins, microbes, and food particles leak into the blood system the immune system fires up and creates inflammation to help get rid of them. Eventually, the immune system becomes over stressed as it struggles to fight off these foreign invaders and begins making antibodies against them. Unfortunately, the immune system may confuse these foreign invaders with the body’s own cells and accidentally attack healthy tissue. The autoimmune disease or condition that manifests depends on which tissues are being attacked by the immune system. ~
The answer to getting healthy is to repair your leaky gut. ~
~
•Remove toxins and inflammatory causing foods. •Restore enzymes needed for proper digestion including HCI, digestive enzymes, and bile acids(liver support).
•Reinoculate with a probiotic supplement that will restore good bacteria in the gut.
•Repair the gut with nutrients including collagen, zinc, bone broth, L-glutamine, glutathione, and omega 3.
•Rebalance  your body through exercise, healthy foods, and stress management. ~
~
OptiCleanse GHI from Xymogen is one of my favorite supplements for immune support, detoxification, gastrointestinal support, liver support and Cytokine balance. 
In order to have a healthy immune system you have to have a healthy gut. Don’t just settle for managing symptoms- get to the root of the issue.

If you really want to work on your emotional eating and make a major difference in your life we are going to do this together. And guess what? . Exercise is optional, for now. Because if you do not get your nutrition in check, all the exercise in the world that you will do will never matter.. . Let's face it, we have all counted calories, points, containers, macros, and the list goes on and on. There will be a private exclusive group starting and with a nutritionist who wrote and design this program losing a hundred pounds herself.. . This is to release around May 2nd. . Honestly, if you are an emotional eater, please don't put this off. Comment below or send me a personal message and I will get you in the group!. . . . #teachersofinstagram  #lanebryant   #youngatheart  #kayaking  #friendsnotfood  #vegans  #doglover  #healthychoices  #thickwomen  #lovecurves  #curvy  #plussize  #50yearold  #type2   #emptynest  #autoimmunedisease  #curlyhairdontcare  #divacurls  #furbabymomma  #momwithtatoos  #yogapants  #humerus  #midlifecrisis  #newbalance  #weightlossprogress  #curvesfordays  #wholebasedfoods  #emotionaleater  #eatfordays  #ittakesateam 
🥚 Most mornings I’d start with a soft boiled egg with a pinch of sea salt. Scrambled egg, without oil, mixed white rice was one of my other breakfast options.

Day 230 of #thegratitudeproject - I am #gratefultodayfor dreams. I realized today that my diagnosis took away my dreams. I’ve been so afraid, so hesitant and cautious to allow myself to dream because it feels like that could all be taken away in one doctor’s appointment. I keep telling myself to move forward and make the most of what I have been given and yet in the back of my mind there’s a voice that tells me not to because I won’t be able to get there anymore. Well no more! I want to dream with all my heart, which means, watch out world because when I set my mind to something I achieve it!

Gotta love eggs! I’ve splashed out and had some gf toast as well because I’m a rebel and don’t tell me what to do 😆🍳💕(also I feel the need to explain that this picture is an extreme close up because there was a chip in the plate and I’m sure my mother would die a slow and embarrassing death if I posted that publicly 😜). #glutenfree #dairyfree #spinach #avocado #brekkie #nightshadefree #healingfoods #autoimmunedisease #autoimmuneprotocol #spoonie #spooniesunite #chronicfatigue #FUMycoplasma #mycoplasma #vegetarian

Rocking the nerdy vampire look here... 🤓🧛🏻‍♀️
...
Why? It’s within an hour or so of bedtime, and I’m in front of a screen.
...
These oh-so-fashionable safety glasses filter out a good portion of the blue light emitted from screens. Blue light inhibits melatonin production.
...
I’m gonna need my melatonin here in a bit so I can drift off to dreamland. 😴
...
Do they really make a difference? I think so. For sure.
...
Either way, if you have trouble falling asleep, it’s worth $7 to find out. That’s way cheaper than an Ambien habit in the long run, in so many ways!

Today was one of the best days both emotionally and mentally that I’ve had in a long time 💜 (not super great physically but ya can’t win’em all!) •
•
I got my exam marks back and I’m heading into my final semester of first year vet tech school with a 90% average. I’m really not one to gloat about marks but I am incredibly proud of myself for maintaining my marks through my UC diagnosis mid semester and being very sick throughout it all. There’s no stopping me now! 😊
•
•
The news that I get to finally start weaning off prednisone made me so happy, fingers crossed it works this time! 🤞🏻

•
I’m also a unicorn again 💜🦄 over 5 hours later, a few inches shorter and I’m soooo in love with my hair!! This photo doesn’t do the colours justice at all, its so amazing in real life! •

Semi-serious 4/20 post. 
Like a lot of people who grew up in my little part of the world, I was exposed to cannabis as a social drug. It became a regular part of my life about ten years ago and in that time I have made the leap from casual, infrequent, consumer to educated medical user. It is not a miracle any more than Tylenol. It is not a gateway to anything other than potential relief. It is a viable option for many, not a guarantee for all. The barriers that still exist in access are due to ignorance and greed. I value my access to medical marijuana and its derivatives. I also support laws that legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Please support your local legislation in access to both.⭐

Fun (not so fun) fact about me: I have Hashimoto’s disease and hypothyroidism. One of the symptoms is feeling tired all the time. Imagine adding that to everyday life situations that can be stressful or bring you down. It gets tough, but I’ve learned to keep going and keep fighting for me, because I deserve it. So whatever you’re going through, YOU GOT THIS. It’s okay to rest and cry it out on bad days, just remember to keep moving forward and never judge yourself on those bad days. Do it for yourself. ✨✨💪🏼

"Who are you to judge the life I live? I am not perfect and I don’t have to be! Before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean." Yes I am totally quoting Bob Marley on my post about pot. 😛
🌿
This lady I know was shocked to find out that I use Marijuana on a regular basis. I don't fit the typical "stoner" profile I guess ?? The first thing she said to me was "well my husband and I would NEVER DO DRUGS and I don't know how people could do such a thing". A part of me REALLY wanted to say to her "you and your husband are doped up on pharmaceutical drugs, you drink pop everyday, you eat nothing but crap, you drink alcohol and you smoke cigarettes yet you're STILL judging me for using a plant? (Which btw is helping me)  Like are you actually serious right now ?! See I can be judgemental😉
🌿
I use to demonize Marijuana too! Only because everyone else did. We were all taught in school that weed was a very BAD "drug." But why? (Go to my Instagram story above ⬆️) What people tend to forget is the fact that Cannabis has been around ALOT longer than pharmaceutical drugs and was once used as medicine. What I want people to realize is that pharmaceutical drugs have come from something natural in which they have synethsized. What makes the synthetic version of a plant ok but the plant itself "bad"? Knowing that this PLANT has saved the lives of many people, including children, is enough for me to give praise to it's medicinal properties!
🌿
I was honestly scared to tell certain people that I started using pot because I know how some people feel about it. I found myself saying things like"dont worry I'm ONLY using it for the CBD" (as if I had to defend myself)  Screw that though! I shouldn't have to explain why I'm choosing to use a freaking PLANT in my life!! And to be honest it's not just for the CBD 😛
🌿
Moral of the story : I feel people really need to do their own research before they are even allowed to form an opinion on this plant. (Or any topic really) Educate yourself on the different cannabinoids and how the cannabinoid recepters in our bodies  react to them. There is literally a science behind everything in life! (⬇️continued)
