The Domino Effect of Chronic Illness Flares 
So, for the past week, I've been feeling pretty craptacular. I ate something my stomach didn't approve of, and that caused a serious intestinal flare that laid me up for days. 🍃

To add injury to injury, the whole right side of my body (starting with my shoulder) decided to flare up in solidarity. (Misery loves company?) 🍃

Then, just for fun, my anxiety, OCD  and paranoia thought they'd come out to play, too. 😧

Today, I am showering, getting dressed, putting makeup on, and forcing myself out of the house before my mental health suffers anymore. 🍃

My flare has about passed, but I still feel weak. Unfortunately, the more time I spend indoors taking care of myself during a flare, the more reclusive and isolated I become. 🍃

It's a balancing act. 🍃

What about you? Have you also experienced this annoying "domino effect"? If so, please share in the comments.

#currentmood wish I knew what was making me #flareup today. Days like this I really hate my illness!

It's a beautiful Friday afternoon and I'm sitting outside soaking up the sun 🌞 and watching my honey mow the lawn! 
Also sipping in my Papaya, Açaí, and Peach Smoothie! Today really feels like Sping!

Enjoy your Sabbath and Weekend!

Yep I feel like 💩 and yet again my colitis is stopping me from day to day things I'd like to do....so bath and bed for me hope it calms quickly otherwise it's gonna be a weekend of not venturing anywhere! 😔 #ulcerativecolitis #ibdawareness #crohnsandcolitisuk #ulcerativecolitisfighter #flareup #hatethem
Here’s the thing about a flare up... They come when it finally seems like you have total control of your gut. I was thriving, working out, and doing everything I knew to help me stay in remission.. But the last month or two I started to get “too comfortable” and started eating out more often, stopped eating veggies as much, and eating foods that were greasy and not healthy by any means. 
The crazy thing about this flare is that it’s happening exactly a year from the last one. I was getting nervous for this time, because I heard there is a good possibility of a flare within the first year of diagnosis. 
The doctor is trying to get me to take meds, but I’ve decided to try the natural route this time. So far, it is working. I’m drinking a lot of organic bone broth/ bone broth protein, organic turmeric tea, and using 500 mg of hemp oil once a day. I’m staying away from foods right now since my gut is so irritated. 
I’ll keep everyone updated on the natural route and let y’all know if it keeps working or if it starts to fail. 
I’m hoping for results. This time last year I was losing weight rapidly and ended up being hospitalized for a whole month. After a lot of research over the last year about all natural healing I think I have a good grasp on this flare. Thanks for all the messages and prayers! Y’all are great. The chronic illness family is a very strong one. .

@wmglobaltravellers remember to go offline🌏 Here are some photos from Malta 🇲🇹 a place where some of my best memories come from💖 I’ve always wanted to travel since I was very young. I’ve always wanted to see everything I possibly could in the time I have. 
I was never one who was good at conventional things especially school, it’s something I was never good at, I wasn’t the academic type especially having ADD and being borderline dyslexic. Even though I didn’t want to go to school especially In my older years, I went anyway, because it was the “normal” thing to do. Before I got ill I was in my final year of school and I was looking at colleges, none of the courses really appealed to me as they were all so academic but I was applying non the less because again it seemed like the “normal” thing to do. I wish I had never gotten sick and I wish I wasn’t going through the horrors that I am but I am so thankful for the time I have had to reflect on myself and to decide what I really want in life. It’s only until your quality of life is taken away from you and when you fear that you might never get to do the things you want to, that you really appreciate what you have. I know that I for one will not take a moment of my health or life for granted once I recover and go into remission. We all wish never got had our disease/disability/disorder/syndrome (etc…) but we have to appreciate the perspective it gives us!💖 every cloud has a silver lining☁️•

I’m so fed up of Endo. Had the review with Dr L today. She wants to liaise with Endo nurses so will sort that on Monday. She suggests keep going with the #amitryptiline until the 30th of May when I see gynae. She says if needed use the #oramorph and remember she’s there to help and if I need to be seen just to phone up and they can also send me up to the hospital. I’m so lucky to have a good GP💛💛💛 #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #endobelly #endoflare #flareup #pain #chronicpain #chronicillness #fuckyouendo #gp #gynae #gynaecology #urology #1in10 #fuckyouendo #butyoudontlooksick #iwantmylifeback

2nd little run since the flare stopped me.
When I was last running, it was snowing - I'm so unprepared for this heat!!
Went out slowly (I had no choice, body wouldn't let me go any faster as low Hb making things tough, Plus still have the shakes a bit).
And I stupidly didn't take any water.
This little magic disk really helped me recover and rehydrate after though. 
Cant stress the importance of hydration and electrolyte replacement in temps like this. It's so easy to get stuck doing what you always do and forget to change things in response to the body's need and the weather. .

The source of the angst was also increasingly common: animals — in this case, two dogs on the plane that the passenger said could cause her allergies to flare up. 
Dallas-based Southwest, Fort Worth-based American Airlines and other U.S. carriers have seen a massive uptick in recent years in the number of pets flying on board, thanks to the growing use and misuse of the ill-defined genus that comprises “emotional support animals.” #15thcenturyfortress, #airlinesflight, #americanairlines, #causeherallergies, #common:animals, #dallasbasedsouthwest, #flareup, #fliers, #petsinfly, #transpired, #trumpadministration, #washington, #аудитполета, #аэропортчанги, #военноморскиеивоздушныеобъекты, #воздушнаяпочта, #захватзаложниковвоздушныхугонов, #имамхомейнимеждународныйаэропорт, #транзитныеполеты, #управлениеаэропортами, #управлениеполетом

When hubby says "we can just have hotdogs for dinner on friday"....... hubbys face with this 🙄🙄🙄 Hotdogs... with carmelized onion, cheese and rocket. Nothing plain about these hotdogs 😂 
Yes, I ate two hotdogs. Do I regret it? No. -

Sometimes I hate taking my meds. Not because I want to be in pain or because I like feeling ill. I just resent having to take them, knowing I need them to be just half the person I used to be.  They make me feel sick to my stomach most days, prevent me from having a glass of wine on a rare night out and I’m tired of having to second guess if I’m ill, injured or it’s just one of a million side effects they have. 
But............they are a life line, they let me enjoy my family, allow me to study and enjoy a rare night out. They also let me work part time so I feel like I’m contributing and give independence and a focus.  Every now and again I miss a dose just incase there’s been a mistake, but within 30mins the pain gates are open for business and I’m held hostage by these tiny little lifesavers.
Maybe one day I’ll wave good bye to them, but for now we will carry on our love hate relationship.

Back on plan this week, even cooking is causing me to #flareup 😢 trying to stay grateful for the weather and thanks to @julietsability I’m trying to realise that you have to work hard every day looking after your body to ease further inflammation and pain 👊🏻 also have an assessment date for the Stanmore inpatient programme! Things can only get better from here 🙌🏻 #sibo #histamineintolerance #autoimmune #connectivetissue #zebrastrong #invisibleillness

MECFS flare ups give me a chance to review my life. In that I become absolutely useless in the worldly manner. 
Our lives are build on the concept of being useful specially women. There was an era (and still is in many areas) where women were not given their human rights, were mistreated and belittled considered useless on regular bases. Hence, the feminism movement gave a voice to those women and reminded our place on this earth. But it also confused women like me. As my Dream growing up was to have a house full of fun and laughter, fresh baked cookies with cold milk, the fun aunty for the children and for my friends a healing place. But I got confused as my Dream didn’t feel useful as somehow our usefulness can only be established if we are bringing in money. 
A man is build to care and a woman is build to nurture. Their presence can be felt if they are living their truth. We don’t have to proof our presence through materialistic power. That put me on path to find ways to make money as I wanted to be useful but the interesting part is my Husband never doubted that but I was raised with feminist ideas hence I stayed on that mindset and finally crashed once again. 
Having a choice is a God given right which we forget regularly but I am thankful for feminism movement that it reminded me about my choices! But I feel it has to find its peace now so two whole people can build relationships rather then one wants to prove other their usefulness. 
Unconsciously I am living my dream but the time has come to live it consciously and accept my presence on earth which does not require any proving. So who wants to come over for cookies and milk 😁

Hey Friends...I'm so tired....but I'm staying up to watch Jersey Shore...#jersday!
✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Here is the recipe for the Pineapple Cashew Cauliflower Rice I made the other day.  Subbing riced cauliflower for actual rice is a great way to eliminate grains from a meal and you still feel totally satisfied. This meal also has cashews in it so the good fats in the cashews also help to keep you full.  This dish on its own is fully vegan, but I topped it with some baked shrimp.  You could also top with any protein you wish or keep it #vegan 😊
✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
What You Need

1 red onion, diced
4 carrots, grated
250 g shitake mushrooms, chopped
1 head of cauliflower, riced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup pineapple, diced
1 cup frozen shelled edamame
2/3 cup raw cashews
2 tbsp sesame oil
4 tbsp coconut aminos
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
salt to taste
✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
How to Make It:

In a saucepan, heat the sesame oil then add the veggies and seasonings. Once the veggies are softened, add the cashews and pineapple. Cook for about 5 more minutes or until your desired doneness of veggies is reached...and you're done! Eat as is or top with the protein of your choice. Enjoy! 💜

This is #fibromyalgia #anxiety #ibs 
It's my 39th birthday. I've been having a fibro and ibs flare up for a week. Today, it has me beyond done. Lights, sounds, people talking, clothing...all of it has me overstimulated and exhausted. The pain is so intense. I've cried more times than not today. Trying to make it. I'm out. I'm at my mom's to celebrate my birthday and I've chosen a quiet spot away from everyone, covered in the beautiful quilt I received of my son's baby clothes, while my son is being taken care of by my family. I'm having to decompress. You're not alone in your #chronicpain and I'm trying to remember, neither am I. How do you cheer yourself up when you're in a bad #flare

I'm at my mom's to celebrate my birthday and I've chosen a quiet spot away from everyone, covered in the beautiful quilt I received of my son's baby clothes, while my son is being taken care of by my family. I'm having to decompress. You're not alone in your #chronicpain and I'm trying to remember, neither am I. How do you cheer yourself up when you're in a bad #flare

❤️ Today, I feel like I got hit by a bus, and with the lack of rest, I feel a fibro flare up coming on. Today I’m trying to fight but I hurt everywhere and all I want to do is rest (but feel guilty)... I don’t know if the battle is more physical or mental... I need prayer please, pray I can rest and feel rejuvenated for tomorrow and the weekend. I can not have a fibro flare right now...I have to many kids and jobs. Who said being an adult was fun? #iguessimafighter #survivor #singlemomlife #twojobs #fibromyalgia #fibromyalgiawarrior #flareup #ineedmiracle #onetiredassmom #HelpMeJesus

I actually cooked tonight! I got tired of eating salads and wanted something with more ethnic flavor. So Curry it is!

It's curry gravy, red bulgur, collard greens, baby broccoli, butter beans, black beans, carrots, onions, Ginger, and lots of spices. I even made it enough for leftovers!

••• A powerful thing to remember that can feel silly or not Important sometimes; but the moments I notice myself showing up for others, and being the person I want to be, are the instances when I have taken the time to care for my body, mind and heart. 
Yesterday I had the worst pain I have had in months and it was excruciating. For hours and hours I writhed and cried until I finally passed out. It reminded me how much the pain can tear you down and take over your world in those moments ~ Expect a blog very soon about riding out those flare ups and all the affects they can have.
Today is about self care and love ~ When your body feels like a battleground, love it through the process. 💓

Retro sweet given to me by a very special and thoughtful friend, on a complete sugar high!!! Lol #retrosweets #presents🎁 #friends #myfriendsarethebest #sugarhigh #cancerfighter #fibrowarrior💜 #flareup #hairdresser
Going for a walk this evening despite a bad headache and nausea all day after a Doctor successully made me feel worse about having #endometriosis and #pcos .

I went to the doctors because I'm sure my hormones are more out of control than usual adrenaline rushes, anxiety, vomiting, hot flushes, dry hair and skin anyone? 
His words "I'm not testing your hormones.
I don't really want to get involved leave it to the hospital" Yes the hospital who only see me every 6 months at best and aren't interested inbetween. 
I have always supported the #NHS but feel more and more like I'm going to have to take out a loan or something to be seen privately 😢

Women are more likely to die from falls when they're elderly as they cannot push themselves up to get to a phone. Let that sink in. Then go do something to improve your upper body.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The healing properties are wonderful.

I love the idea that these things of Earth are healing, and can be used in multiple ways.

But, this is more of a reminder, to think about healing and pain in a positive way.  To bring awareness to the body/mind connection. 
Health and love to you all❤

I didn't go for a run or jog for almost 10 years. My back would flare up and I thought I'd never go for a jog again.

過敏測試結果~我看見就無奈🤦🏻‍♀️
無論是血液或皮膚斑點測試
我對任何食物/化妝品成份/環境因素都無過敏!
好像我的過敏從來是我想像出來⋯(哭著訴無辜的古代民女)
咁我最後又去看另一個皮膚科醫生~
幸好神在第八天創造了類固醇
所以我好快便消炎了
只是神也創造了類固醇的副作用,不是好嚴重誰想要用呢~係咪~

- Paint Night
.
I had so much fun getting out of the house, trying something completely new, painting glasses with my beautiful daughter! .

The local coffee house held this special event to help brighten up our extra-long winter here in Alberta! 
A dozen ladies got together to test our creativity, and of course to have a few laughs while socializing. .

I don't get out much anymore, so, the fact that I was able to do this with my daughter made it even more special! .

#RosieMarcel sent me these words❤️❤️ Things are shit if I’m honest. My pain levels have been high which disrupted my sleep on Tuesday night and had to take breakthrough #morphine as the pain wasn’t settling it was on my left side and was tender to touch. I struggled into work yesterday and felt awful all day decided enough was enough and phoned the Endo nurses. I spoke to Nurse D and she got me an earlier appointment for 30th of May to see Dr J. She wasn’t aware of any of these things going on with me or that I’d been to see urology but I filled her in on everything going on. She also recommended trying #nortryptiline instead of #amitryptiline so I’ve to let Dr L know at my review tomorrow. She said the bladder issues sound like #painfulbladdersyndrome / #interstitalcystitis and are hard to diagnose with tests.

Selfcare, anything to keep my mind of this horrible pain! 
I love Skinfood’s Black Sugar-masks, and I started with the Strawberry 🍓 since it’s exfoliating (and moisturizing) and now my face is covered with the honey 🍯 wich is full of minerals. Slightly exfoliating as well, so I’m gonna put on a sheetmask afterward.

Then... I don’t know what I’m going to do. Try to sleep, I guess... damn, it hurts everywhere. .

This super poorly week has played games with my mental health. This morning, I changed my routine - 20 mins in the garden, ☀️ green tea 🍵 & audiobook of “How to be sick” by Toni Bernhard (thank you for the recommendation lovely @theslowlane_me ) ... and it was wonderful 💛 Back in bed, exhausted (it’s taken ages to write this) but feeling like I’ve actually accomplished something for myself (as silly as that may sound to a healthy person!) .

Both grandmother's in hospital. One terminal age 93 and 1 age 95 with possible chest infection.
.
Yesterday I had to wait for ambulance for her (3 hours!) while helping her use the commode.
.
I am beyond exhausted and sore. Sat not knowing what actually hurts and what doesn't. .
I can't feel sorry for myself though as I need to go to the hospital and see them both.
.
It never rains but it pours!

I’m exhausted from trying to be stronger than I feel. There comes a point where it all becomes too much. When we get too tired to fight anymore and feel like giving up. That’s where the real work begins and trust that God has you. Trust in Him and you will see hope where you thought it absolutely won’t be possible. No matter what you go through or how you feel , never give up. Hang in there. This too will pass.

I was in the studio for 7 hours without noticing pain. My head was incredibly clear and I had a creative energy that kept flowing. Needless to say, G6 aka Jet Fuel is my new favorite strain! I really want to restock on it tomorrow but I’m trying to save my allotment up for the 4/20 sales. 1 more day! I probably should have done yoga and recharged while recording because I am beat up. Although- it’s raining in Chicago ...it may actually be snowing now. That means everything hurts. It always seems strange to me, the way the weather effects my body. I know that it does- it just seems hard to believe sometimes.  Mostly, it’s comforting / a reminder that once everything is stripped away, we are nature. Off to the bathtub to smoke Kosher Kush and breathe eucalyptus and lavender until the pain fades into sleep. 🌙

#Repost @momsbehavingbadly @thefeminineshift —- ⬆️ Ain't that the truth?! A huge aspect of self care is setting boundaries with people. We need to know what we will tolerate and what we won't with our friends, family and romantic partners, physically and emotionally. It will build your own self-respect and others' respect for you.
✨✨✨✨✨✨
Boundaries allow us to differentiate ourselves from each other. They may be loose, rigid or non existent. Setting boundaries is hard because you may feel guilty at the idea of setting a boundary. What if I upset someone, or what if I cause an argument by setting this boundary...ps this is 100% me, and I received an awesome perspective from the very wise @fixitontheinside : When I feel like this about setting a boundary with someone is it because the relationship I have with them is serving me in a positive way or is it simply because of my history with that person? That totally hit home for me and has allowed me to flourish in my self care journey. ✨
So it's time for me to get real ⬇️
Boundaries have been a challenge for me throughout my life. I typically avoid conflict. And because of this, I will sometimes not dare to verbalize my boundary with certain people.  And in the same token, if someone "ignores" that unexpressed boundary—with no fault of their own because how would they know about this boundary if I don't tell them?!—I feel betrayed yet I don't say a word. Nobody but me knows about it because I'd never set the boundary out loud. I experience the anger and resentment of a boundary violation, but I never set it to begin with. The problem, in this case, was mine. The fact that I was unable to set a boundary in certain situations shows a lack of self identity to some extent. So what did I do about this? Practice self care. I did this by implementing tiny self-care habits every day. To start I began to regularly include in your life a little bit of love and attention for your own body, mind, and soul. Having me time at the end of the night after the kids are in bed, going to workout/yoga class, and one huge one....starting @gutsygirldiaries😊cont’d in 1st comment⬇️
#Repost  @momsbehavingbadly @thefeminineshift —- ⬆️ Ain't that the truth?! A huge aspect of self care is setting boundaries with people. We need to know what we will tolerate and what we won't with our friends, family and romantic partners, physically and emotionally. It will build your own self-respect and others' respect for you. ✨✨✨✨✨✨ Boundaries allow us to differentiate ourselves from each other. They may be loose, rigid or non existent. Setting boundaries is hard because you may feel guilty at the idea of setting a boundary.

"I’ve tried to write this story a zillion times! ✨
After being diagnosed with an auto immune disease, hypothyroidism, and adrenal burn out at 16 we saw all the specialists, Western doctors, Holistic doctors, dietitians, nutritionists and the like... at one point I was taking 37 vitamins a day. I didn’t notice anything... I was tested for lymphoma... I wasn’t myself.. once Josh and I got married at 19 and 20 the Lord started to leave breadcrumbs of hope. That led me to food blogs (when they were just starting to be a thing) which led me to all kinds of resources 🙌🏼 I spent the next 10 years being obsessive with health and could not get enough! After radically changing my diet I didn’t even notice the symptoms anymore that plagued me 🌿 we are what we eat 🌱🤛🏼👏🏼🙌🏼 Once you shift your mindset to health and not a number or weight, your weight is effortless, and your mind is clear of the headspace. 
Food is fuel, it’s life giving. 🌱
Enter pregnancy, babies, nursing and no sleep (which is really bad for auto immune issues to not get sleep) some things were flaring up again. I was getting skin rashes from food allergies..... despite my dialed in diet 🧐 I did my research. I lost faith in supplements back in the day, but trusted my sister and Mom. I researched and what I found was I needed some support for my immune system. 
The rest is history. My body was allowed to heal itself with that immune support. I was able to get off my thyroid medicine of 15 years, my hormones officially balanced out, the energy...🙌🏼 and not having skin rashes and food allergies anymore 💗🙌🏼 ask my friends. Certain foods broke me out in skin rashes. These foods were health foods. I could go on. And I continue to. Even the healthiest (like me eating so well) need some supplementation and immune support. Especially when I was giving a lot of myself to raising babies 🌱 it’s never been about a sale. It’s about hope. I prayed for something to get rid of my skin rashes right before my sister and mom shared with me about this stuff. 
The biggest difference I’ve notice with this over anything else? Results 💗 🙏🏼" — My stunningly gorgeous friend, Marian
