So today was my second round of botox for chronic migraines. The injection sites are sore, and it makes me incredibly worn out, plus I didn't get much sleep last night. I can't get my eyes open much more than this. The muscles in my left arm are so sore down to my elbow. But thats my bad shoulder side, so I think that is playing a large part. Its been a very emotional draining week so far. I had an endocrinology appointment Monday, where in was diagnosed with Hashimoto's and told I had more than likely suffered a concussion sometime in my life that messed up my pituitary gland, and was told that at some point my thyroid is just going to burn out and be useless. Then today at my neurologist she said it sounds like I have a few different things going on with my health, giving me many ms symptoms, and I have vertigo. So a lot of new information in a short amount of time to sort through mentally. I'm worn out.

Back pain and other pains can be a huge factor in mental health, especially if the pain stops you from regular exercise. If u suffer from chronic pain and it stressing you out seek medical help and get it fixed. #mentalhealth #ok #depression #dontsufferalone #yourenotalone #talkaboutit #seekhelp #anxiety #panic #pain #blackpain #chronicpain
I came across this image on Facebook and it made me laugh because even when I'm at my worst, I still try and put on a brave face and try not to let those around me know how bad it really is. 
Does anyone else do this?

Girl talk with @stonerslutnextdoor. Her anthem playing, not mine. Fell in love with Marky because he was a stoner boy that like to stay home, she's  young and can have all the men my age I don't want them. Good live close to a college town. 😉

La sarcopenia consiste en la pérdida de masa y potencia muscular que se produce a consecuencia del envejecimiento, o por llevar una vida sedentaria. 
Consecuencias de la sarcopenia

Discapacidad y dependencia: las consecuencias de la sarcopenia se deben a la pérdida de masa muscular, de tal forma que los ancianos afectados por esta entidad son más débiles que las personas con una masa muscular normal. 
Caídas y fracturas: a los ancianos con sarcopenia y debilidad en las extremidades inferiores les resulta difícil realizar actividades como la marcha, levantarse de una silla, subir escaleras, o caminar a un paso ligero y, por lo tanto, tienen un mayor riesgo de caídas y fracturas.

Mayor posibilidad de desarrollar otras enfermedades: la sarcopenia puede tener repercusiones no solo sobre el músculo, sino también sobre otros muchos órganos y sistemas. Al perder masa muscular los pacientes con sarcopenia consumen más proteínas para producir energía. Si a esto le sumamos la baja ingesta de alimentos, que es frecuente en personas mayores, se entiende por qué la enfermedad afecta mucho más a los ancianos que a los adultos más jóvenes. 
Alteración para regular la temperatura corporal: la pérdida de masa muscular puede influir significativamente sobre la capacidad del organismo para regular la temperatura corporal en ambientes fríos y calurosos.

I really could do with a break now or a bit of luck please? 🙏🏻
.
.
Today was HARD to say the least, in fact this whole week has been bloody hard...😭 .
.
So today, I had my consultation about the lump/cyst in my kidney and it's been decided that due to the change in the lining of the cyst/lump and because I am still losing blood every time I go to the toilet, they want to do further tests... So I'm now waiting for a CT Scan and then potentially going under general anaesthetic to have cameras put into my kidneys to make sure there's nothing sinister causing these issues...
.
.
However, he did say it may be down to my Crohn's or endometriosis and reminded what a "complex" case I am... yay 👎🏻😞
.
.
I mean look at the size of my notes... It's almost embarrassing! The doctor even said he was expecting an 80 year old to walk in after seeing the size of my notes (and these are missing a whole file from when I was under a different trust for 6 years). .
.
I'm sorry for the lack of positivity this week but I honestly feel like I can't cope with much more and I'm spending every spare minute resting and sleeping... When I'm not working, as I'm strong pain relief and antibiotics for a chest infection... Well what they think is a chest infection...Fingers crossed the emergency bloods from today don't show anything else or anything more serious 🤦🏼‍♀️
.
.
Bad Dad jokes and happy stories are much appreciated if you want to help cheer me up!

@snowflakewithafuse and I have been friends for almost a year online. We met through Instagram and have been talking everyday since. We have such similar personalities and she’s someone I can go to in a time of need. We send each other funny videos and memes all throughout the day to get us through. She lives in Tennessee and I live in Virginia so it’s a long distance friendship but I couldn’t ask for a better best friend. Me and Bub (SDit) are driving down to Tennessee this summer to meet her and her SDit Lyra. Lyra and Bub even have matching stranger things collars😅♥️not even distance can separate us✊

Feedback on my Sciatica Salve which is my personal favorite salve! Its the strongest one I make & I put so much time and effort into creating the perfect recipe. This salve is made with Calendula Herbal Oil, Arnica Herbal Oil, St. John's Wort, Helichrysum, Roman Chamomile, Lavender, Sweet Marjoram, Peppermint, Yarrow, German Chamomile, Bergamot, Geranium, Cedarwood, Hyssop, Myrtle, Ravensara, Ravintsara, Cajeput, Clove Bud, Cinnamon, Blue Tansy, Sandalwood, and Spike Lavender. It sounds like a lot, but I make them in 12-16 ounce batches, that way I can use a variety of essential oils and still be safe to use topically. .

It seems like forever I’ve been on IG, but I’ve been very sick and have been to the ER three times this week with even an admit.  It’s been a lot.  I haven’t been up to doing anything.  I was able to stop off at this refuge while driving to the doctors yesterday.  It inspires me to look forward to my next doctors visit and see what great pictures I can come across! #fibromyalgia #fibrowarrior #fibromyalgiawarrior #fibro #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicpainwarrior #chronicfatigue #chronicfatiguesyndrome #nervepain #musclepain #allergies #exploreoregon #explorer #exploremore #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwphotographer #pnwlife #oregon #oregongirl #oregonexplored #travelgirl #naturephotography #nature #canadiangeese #wildlife #wildlifephotography #spoonielife

Work went really well today actually probably the first good day at work since I’ve been back after the Easter break. Yes I still felt exhausted but it was positive, as I’ve been given more responsibility which feels good. Definitely didn’t leave me with any energy this evening so I just chilled out and watched tv.

True story. So often I get asked “what’s wrong” or people are overly concerned when my mood changes suddenly. This is why. Not just pain but general discomfort or symptoms that simply pop up out of nowhere. PSA love your people. #chronicillness #chronicpain #fibromyalgia #fibrowarrior #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniesupport
Taking a page my from dog Mulder's book and judging you from afar (for reference check out @theboston.files where you can see the full array of his judgyness) 💜💜🤣🤣
I lurrveee brown and purple together. 💜🐕
But really though, all joking aside, I try not to judge people. There are some instances with bad people and bad behaviors. Remember, you never know what someone is going thru. Try to give them the benefit of the doubt.

going to Disney for me means lots of rest stops and making sure I'm paying attention to my body .
I absolutely adore going to the parks and getting a dose of the magic but I have to be careful not to over do it (and trust me, I am OFTEN known to over do it). .
thankfully I am usually at the park with beautiful and supportive friends who understand the need to take it slowly!
.
i'm gonna be exhausted later but getting a dose of pixie dust is a must for my mental health! gotta make sure I keep a good balance of taking care of my mind and body ✨🌻

“I have severe fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid issues, COPD, sleep apnea, migraines, severe anxiety n the list goes on..... been jobless for over 5 years due to severe pain and days I couldn’t even get out of bed.  A week ago today I started hempworx CBD oil, I'm amazed at how much better I feel, how much better I sleep, how much more energy I have.  So yesterday I went to health food store and got pure coconut oil,(for thyroid and more energy) and I also got pure apple cider vinegar,( for ... The manager told me I needed it) lol
 Every Sunday I will update on my progress. I'd like to give thanks to Phoebe for ordering the Hempworx 750 CBD oil, as it saved my life.  Thanks to Pam for telling me about the hempworx products to buy to get my pain levels gone, and off the bad pharmacy drugs with crazy side effects.  I'm so excited of the progress and days to come. 👍✌👌 I started out on 750 CBD oil, 3 drops 2x a day. Was a lil much, so I went down to 2 drops 2x a day. N I feel like I’m a new me. Lol
 HempWorx after a week has took my pain from a 8-10 to a 2-3.  In time I feel I will be pain free.  Best stuff ever!!! And take my life back. I’ve had more energy than I’ve had in years. CBD oils from hempworx is the bomb dignity ❣️❣️❣️

Had therapy this morning and it really didn’t do much today; I usually walk out with insight, purpose or something to reflect on. Today, I’m really feeling that hypo/manic rage and want to break stuff. I’m ignoring all chores all together, drinking tea and coloring... #bipolar #mania #depression #rapidcycling #ocd #panic #anxiety #ptsd #agoraphobia #selfharm #suicide #darkness #comorbity #adhd #spoonie #psychosis #survivor #chronicpain #invisibleillness #selfcareisntselfish #endthestigma #mentalhealth #therapy #projectsemicolon #itsokaynottobeokay #mentalhealthawareness

This has been me the past two days! Pain is at a high.  It’s crazy how unpredictable autoimmune diseases can be.  I felt pretty good on Sunday and Monday...even took a walk with my husband.  And then on Tuesday and today I was completely down and out with crazy joint pain 🤬 I deal with pain everyday so I know it’s bad when it completely knocks me down. Weather is supposed to dry out and get hot soon...fingers 🤞🏼 that it brings relief! #necrotizingpancreatitis #type1diabetes #autoimmunedisease #RA #fibromyalgia #chronicillnesses #chronicpain #nevergiveup #overcome #onedayatatime #fighter

NOTICE (not my scan)

Some of you have asked me if I am still shooting g as I haven't posted much new content in a while. I have my wedding in 4 weeks which I've been focusing on but also, I've had chronic sciatic pain since October (but started a year ago). I've had my MRI results yesterday and I have three(!) herniated discs (two mild but with a tear but L5-S1 is bad). My L5-S1 has popped out and burst so my nerve is coated with goo. On my own scan, you can't see the nerve at all in this area as it's that bad. Not only this but it's leaking on the other side too. If it touches the other nerve, I'm stuffed and will need emergency medical attention. It's likely I'm going to need surgery and I'm having to come to terms with that. With my wedding in 4 weeks, it's really upsetting me. Up until now, I've not had GPs taking my pain seriously and at one appointment, I was told to take paracetamol and ibuprofen 🙄😆 I am still shooting but I do pay for it physically the next day so can only manage a couple of hours at a time. I get tired easily these days and don't have the energy to spend hours editing. 
Thanks for your support and sorry for the moany post!

No wake zone has a whole new meaning when you have a Chronic illness. I am so tired and I've done nothing today except get out of bed and sit or lay on the couch.  No wake zone to me means I can't stay awake.

I just spoke to the director of @lfa_northeast , and we can't believe how close the walk is!!! 10 DAYS AWAY! Holy 🐄 , I can't wait.
Also, I spoke to the producers of @rightthisminute last night to get a copy of this video. As many of you know (probably because I flooded social media with it haha), Danny and my wedding went viral a few months ago! This video is where it all started! 
Having a surprise wedding was absolutely perfect for us. I know that's not what most people would do, but our lifestyle is different and absolutely not 'normal' (but hey, normal is boring haha).
Stress is one of my main triggers for flares and planning a wedding would've undoubtedly caused unnecessary flares. Whenever I am stressed now I thank Danny or my mom who helped plan the wedding for saving me from being sick. It's always a reminder that the way we had our wedding was perfect for us.
I've had to miss holidays and countless parties and events. It's incredibly frustrating. Having the option to get married the night I got engaged allowed me to actually ATTEND my wedding. Being sick the day of and having to either fight through it or possibly miss it was a fear Danny and I both had. Instead, Danny and his gigantic heart, knowing me so well, planned something that he knew would not only work, but be amazingly beautiful...
and it was. 
Thank you again to everyone for your constant love and support every year that I fundraise. It means the world that you help me reach my goals year after year for a cause that is so very close to my heart. You are all amazing. 💜

That lump at the base of my skull that's been giving me pain? Yeah it wasn't a lipoma or a cyst or an abscess (thankfully)! It's just my #occipitalneuralgia acting up. Haven't had a flare up since August of last year. Doctor recommends ice and neck stretches and he'll check on me in two weeks, if it hasn't gotten better I'll have to go in the day after and get a steroid shot to the problem area. Doctor also said a new pillow would help so I'll be getting one soon.
Honestly glad it isn't anything too serious. Hope ice and exercises do help because I haven't been able to sleep well because of the pain (but then again do I ever sleep well?) #spoonie #spoonielife #chronicillness #chronicpain #flareup #chronicmigraine #fibromyalgia #ibs #cfs #insomnia #etc #ineedanap

Today was a great reminder that we can't always push through. Sometimes it's hard for me to know the difference between the chronic pain flaring and injury pain.  But I do know I pushed through pain on Monday.
Not because I had to but because of my arrogance.  I wanted to believe I could do crazy heavy for me weights. There is pushing yourself and being stupid and sometimes it's a fine line.
But it reminded me that not everyone can push through their illness, their circumstances, or their pain.  But you know what everyone can do - take one step toward their goal. That's all we are really asked in life. Keep moving forward. 
So let's move forward together, in your steps, not mine.
I'm looking for my next 2 people to help and to get you energized to start I'll be giving the first person to go all in a while container of my Energize and Shake secret sauce!

Life’s been tough lately.
Really tough.
....
New orthopedic doctor is going to order new imaging for my neck. Meanwhile I can’t get the normal injections I’m used to Bc he needs to read my past history from last pain specialist. So I am suffering!!
...
Family doctor is willing to wait longer before decreasing oxy more because I’m getting too sick from the glasses change - that by the way, was supposed to make my life better, not make me more nauseous, tired and have more migraines. 🤕

✨ autoimmune flares ✨
I’m officially 12 days into being sick coupled with an autoimmune flare 😩 I was really hoping this terrible cold would run its course then things would go back to normal (granted it always takes me longer to get better than people without an autoimmune disease) but it’s looking like that’s not the case. It’s incredibly frustrating to be wanting to return to normal life, working, hanging out with friends, creating art, etc, but be completely powerless over this disease.
~
Granted I know I’ve done many things in these past couple of weeks to support recovery, but when it becomes apparent that my autoimmunity is going to take advantage of my immune system’s weakened state it becomes more difficult to support my recovery. After the realization that it IS an autoimmune flare on top of being sick, I immediately get frustrated and feel resentful towards my body.
~
Healing from an autoimmune flare is so much more consuming than healing from being sick. The measures I have to take to get better create a list that feels a mile long, and it forces me to quiet down and tune into what my body is telling me. Often I try to make ‘compromises’ with my body, ensuring that I will rest and do the things I know need to happen in order for healing AFTER it provides me with the energy and ability to do everything on my to do list. Unsurprisingly, this bargaining doesn’t go well and my body doesn’t react well when I push pash my limits.
~
In order to get through flares, I try to use a holistic approach to support my entire body, mind, and emotional health. I take the time to tune and listen to my body, which helps show me how I can best support myself. Typically it includes a mixture of healing foods (bone broth, veggies, healthy fats, and high quality protein), ample rest, disconnecting from screens as much as possible, increasing supplements that support my immune system, staying hydrated, and avoiding stimulants. This mixture of things on tops of gentle stretching and meditation help to put my body back into a strongly supported state to minimize the length and severity of the flare as much as possible.

I sidste uge fik jeg beskeden om at kirurgerne ikke kan gøre mere for mig. Jeg må nu forsøge at finde fred med at jeg aldrig slipper af med mine smerter (tvært imod må jeg forvente at de bliver værre i takt med at slidgigten bliver værre). Jeg skal lære at navigere i en verden som ser noget anderledes ud end jeg havde forventet, og at jeg nok aldrig kommer til at vende tilbage til et arbejdsliv på fuld tid. Den er lidt hård at sluge, men jeg må forsøge at finde min plads i livet, og kæmpe for at det kan lykkes.
