Trying to remember to take care of me when my urge is to take care of everyone else first especially with mom in the hospital. Day off full of appointments for me. I’m tired. I need a nap, a bowl of gumbo, and some kitty cuddles. #mominthehospital #drappointment #chronicillness #exhausted #chronicovercomer #fibromyalgia #takecareofyourself
This is the first time this has happened to me on here. Does this mean I've made it on Instagram? Honestly though he's an asshole and I'm not having it. #chronicillness #chronicallyill #chronicovercomer #chronicallyfabulous #disability #disabled #ibs #irritablebowelsyndrome #irritablebowel #irritablestomach #ibswarrior #ibsc
It's the day after my colonoscopy and it's mostly good news! So there is nothing wrong with my colon like cancer or anything like that 👍 we're doing biopsies to see if I have colitis though and I have to wait until October 2nd to find out about that and probably as of right now the thing that is wrong with my colon the most is how long it is. Its 5ft long according to my doctor and I'm very tiny! So pretty much having a long colon is I'm absorbing too much which causes my constipation because there isn't enough for my body to realize it needs to poop! Honestly I'm just waiting on those results but can I just say that I love seeing my insides? It fascinates me personally! I also really love my doctors instructions of "Keep smiling!" . . . . #chronicillness #chronicallyill #chronicovercomer #chronicallyfabulous #disability #disabled #ibs #irritablebowelsyndrome #irritablebowel #irritablestomach #ibswarrior #ibsc #colonoscopy
This snug bug holding me is my rock. I'm so glad he was with me today for my colonoscopy.

Time to get this thing done! I'm wearing my too tired to function shirt because its before 9 that I'm awake. Procedure is at 10. I'm a little nervous but everything will be just fine. This is to learn if there's anything wrong so I'm glad for that! . . . . #chronicillness #chronicallyill #chronicovercomer #chronicallyfabulous #disability #disabled #ibs #irritablebowelsyndrome #irritablebowel #irritablestomach #ibswarrior #ibsc #colonoscopy #colonoscopyprep

🐕💕😘 I am so blessed and happy to have Colt in my life. He really does make life livable and I am so shocked at how he saves my life on a daily basis when I really sit and think back about what my life was before him and what it would be like with out him I really know the impact he has had, it’s easy to get use to the here and now and being spoiled. I am thankful. #ServiceDog #TBI #TraumaticBrainInjury #Fighter #IChooseJoy #YouTuber #Vlogger #TheLordIsMyStrength #IChooseJesus #Seizures #Survivor #HeroDog #RawFedDog #Blessed #DoNotDistractServiceDogs #Hypoglycemic #ChronicOvercomer #ICanDoAllThingsThroughChrist #HeIsGreaterThanI #ServiceDogColt #RealLifeDory #JustKeepSwimming #TrickDog #InvisibleDisability #Spoonie #Syncope #StruckDownButNotDestroyed #TonicClonicSeizures #ChronicPain #FearIsALiar
🐾❤️👣 A lot of people ask me if Kayden is my son, I understand the confusion because he wasn’t posted much when he was younger to shield him a little from social media till he was older, short answer to that question is yes he is my son. Long answer is I can’t actually have children, he is actually my step son but I have been apart of his life for as long back as he has memory, I consider him my son and love him as such, so many people looking at us thinks he is my son anyways because we look alike. I love him with all my heart and I am thankful that the Lord gave me the chance to be a mom even if it’s not biological that is not what always matters. I have had many mothers stand in even though my mom and dad divorced when I was two and the bond has been just as real and important. I also have 16 not biological siblings (well two are half) that have been apart of my life for most of it and mean just as much to me as my biological brother does. Look at this cutie with such a kind, caring heart giving water to Colt after he was off duty running off his energy. He loves Colt and Colt loves him oh so much. So blessed to have this wonderful family. ❓Do you have someone in your family that is not biological but means the world to you and may be even stronger of a bond than blood family, comment below❓ #ServiceDog #TBI #TraumaticBrainInjury #Fighter #IChooseJoy #YouTuber #Vlogger #TheLordIsMyStrength #IChooseJesus #Seizures #Survivor #HeroDog #RawFedDog #Blessed #DoNotDistractServiceDogs #Hypoglycemic #ChronicOvercomer #ICanDoAllThingsThroughChrist #HeIsGreaterThanI #ServiceDogColt #RealLifeDory #JustKeepSwimming #TrickDog #InvisibleDisability #Spoonie #Syncope #StruckDownButNotDestroyed #TonicClonicSeizures #ChronicPain #FearIsALiar
I woke up feeling good today so Bella had the day “off!” We went to pet friendly stores and played/trained and we finished off the day with a little hike! We haven’t hiked in forever so Bella LOVED being out there again 💜 it was the cutest thing to watch. I can’t wait until it’s cooler out and we will be able to hike more often 💕 . . . #tbi #tbiawareness #braininjury #chronicpain #alldayeveryday #pushon #fighter #chronicovercomer #chronicwarrior #servicedogintraining #respectthevest #donotpet #servicedog #helperdog #sdit #mygirl #blackdog #dogswithjobs #dogsthatwork #workingdog #workingline #workinglineGSD #bettertogether #germanshepherd #blackgermanshepherd #gsd #TYD #trustyourdog #independencetogether #bettertogether

🎉🙏🏼💋 Hay guys can you help me out and do something sweet and comment a bunch of happy Birtdays below (😂haha If you have seen my story you know why it’s spelled this way) You guys all know just how amazing Garrett is and that we almost lost him recently! 💥💥💥 PLEASE comment how great he is below so I can share it with him for his Birtday! This is a video from my snap chat from when he was in the hospital after his heart attack, I love it, shows his strength and cheerfulness even in struggle. Happy Birtday Garrett! I love you so much! I am so thankful you are here with us and we get to celebrate another wonderful year together, I am thankful for all you do and for the man you are. God has given me such a blessing in my life. #ServiceDog #TBI #TraumaticBrainInjury #Fighter #IChooseJoy #YouTuber #Vlogger #TheLordIsMyStrength #IChooseJesus #Seizures #Survivor #HeroDog #RawFedDog #Blessed #DoNotDistractServiceDogs #Hypoglycemic #ChronicOvercomer #ICanDoAllThingsThroughChrist #HeIsGreaterThanI #ServiceDogColt #RealLifeDory #JustKeepSwimming #StruckDownButNotDestroyed #HeartAttack #Hospital #FearIsALiar #HappyBirthday

🐕❤️🐾 Garrett and I took Colt out to play and have fun at the creek tonight. Sometimes seeing Colt is slow mo makes me see just how talented he is. All of these memories mean a lot to me and I’m thankful we can all make wonderful memories together. If you would like to see all the fun you can go watch our stories from today. Hope you had fun making memories today as well. For all the people asking about how Garrett is doing he is doing good thank you all for your prayers and support. It’s been a tough time but we will get through this like anything else. I love him so much. #ServiceDog #TBI #TraumaticBrainInjury #Fighter #IChooseJoy #YouTuber #Vlogger #TheLordIsMyStrength #IChooseJesus #Seizures #Survivor #HeroDog #RawFedDog #Blessed #DoNotDistractServiceDogs #Hypoglycemic #ChronicOvercomer #ICanDoAllThingsThroughChrist #HeIsGreaterThanI #ServiceDogColt #RealLifeDory #JustKeepSwimming #TrickDog #InvisibleDisability #Spoonie #Syncope #StruckDownButNotDestroyed #TonicClonicSeizures #ChronicPain #FearIsALiar
Doctors always seem astonished to learn of my multiple chronic illnesses and all the medications I have to take to manage each condition. For years my primary care physician has repeated the ever frustrating line, “you’re only _____ years young. People your age shouldn’t have this many medical problems.” Well, let’s just take a step back and consider the implications of that. Of course I don’t want to be sick nor do I want to be tethered to treatments that take several hours to complete each day just to maintain my current (not so great) level of health. Nevertheless, this is my reality. To respond to this type of comment I’ve learned to cognitively reframe the thought. To do this, you ask yourself if the thought (or comment in this case) is helpful or not helpful?” ———NOT HELPFUL——— It is not helpful to have a negative outlook encompassing my entire being just because I’m chronically ill. It is NOT HELPFUL to self-blame. While the purpose of the comment might not be intentionally harmful, the fact is that when doctors question your medical regimens and stop listening to what you’re telling them works and doesn’t work, it is detrimental to your health and psychological well-being. . And, side-note, does someone want to tell my body that I’m “too young” to have these problems? I feel like doctors forget the congenital nature of my diseases and their comorbidities. I was pretty young at birth too, you know? But I’m sure my body just didn’t get the memo 🤷‍♀️. . To those fighting hard battles right now, know that you are doing the best you can. Be kind to yourself even when you are frustrated. . You are strong and resilient. You may feel sad and discouraged now, but you have dealt with incredibly tough circumstances before and you can do it again. So to all of my fellow chronic overcomers, we can do hard things. Together, we will persevere. 💜 . . . #neverstopfighting #strengthtomakeitthrough #chronicillness #chronicovercomer #fightlikeawarrior #ehlersdanlossyndrome #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #adrenalinsufficiency #renaltubularacidosis #intractablemigraine #migraine #asthma
Today I went out with my mom and as we were leaving it was pouring out. We waited for it to stop but it didn't so we got soaked putting away our bags.

My chronic fatigue has really been taking a toll on me lately. It’s gotten worse and it’s been making life a little difficult lately. I’m hoping that the doctors can figure out what’s going on and come up with a treatment, quickly. Until then, I have a little black bear to help me 💜 . . . #tbi #tbiawareness #braininjury #chronicpain #alldayeveryday #pushon #fighter #chronicovercomer #chronicwarrior #servicedogintraining #respectthevest #donotpet #servicedog #helperdog #sdit #mygirl #blackdog #dogswithjobs #dogsthatwork #workingdog #workingline #workinglineGSD #bettertogether #germanshepherd #blackgermanshepherd #gsd #TYD #trustyourdog #independencetogether #bettertogether
Wed, 12/09/2018 ¦ ° Finally a proper "diagnosis" on my pain, and going forward to a way to treat it. Neuropathic pain, which is why normal painkillers aren't helping me one bit (except for my major headaches) Seeing my GP soon to get some proper pain medication in the hopes that they'll help. I got some hope and fight back in me and I will continue to conquer this illness full on. ° ° #cfs #chronicovercomer #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicpain #cfsme #mecfs #me #myalgicencephalomyelitis #spoonies #spoonie #recovery #tiredgirl #invisibleillness #sick #mentalhealth #timeforunrest #unrest #millionsmissing #ibs #brainfog #wherethetiredgirlsare #centralsensitization #chronicloveclub #neuropathy #neuropathicpain

The peace and happiness of my ride in the pasture today reminded me of how lucky I am to have good health days and a way to spend them doing something I’ve always loved 💙 • *peep another love of mine in the background of the third slide* @dodgeofficial
❤️💪🏼🐾Garrett has been resting and recovering. I am so thankful to have this man, I’m so thankful he is alive and here with us still, I can’t even imagine what I would do without him. Those days where the most stressful I have ever had. I love him so much. Colt loves snuggling with him to keep him company. I have been so exhausted lately trying to do everything for Garrett so he can recover and it makes me realize just how much Garrett does do for me on a daily basis. Let’s just say the whole house is a disaster and the sink is full of dirty dishes. I have always been grateful for everything he does but now I see just how much he has to do. I can barely do the basics let alone all the extras. I love him so much. Please continue to pray for us, all the changes and fears are getting us down and we need a little support knowing it will all be okay and that God is really there, Garrett has been struggling emotionally too with this, understandably. Thank you all for all your support and love and hundreds of messages and comments. I’m so glad you all love him too he sure is the best husband ever and what a rock in my life. It’s hard being swapped to care taker but makes me feel so much more blessed. #ServiceDog #Fighter #IChooseJoy #Vlogger #TheLordIsMyStrength #IChooseJesus #Survivor #Blessed #DoNotDistractServiceDogs #ChronicOvercomer #ICanDoAllThingsThroughChrist #HeIsGreaterThanI #StruckDownButNotDestroyed #FearIsALiar #heartattack #coronaryinfarction #hospital #ontheoutsidelookingin #pleasepray #husband #icantloseyou #GodhasAplan #stressed #surgery #bloodthinners
Its so easy to look at my life and be frustrated with all that I haven't done. That I've only checked two things off of my list today. Being mad at myself because I took a nap instead of cleaning. Sad because I just can't find the energy to work out. Its so easy to pull yourself down with pointing out all the negatives in your life. After all, we are our own worst critics. Usually, I try to flip it. And be happy that I got the laundry done today, proud that I got most of my steps in, and give myself a pat on the back for getting out of bed at all. I try so hard to find the happy and joy. But today is not one of those days. Today, no matter how hard I try I see my failures and unacomplishmens, I havent been able to look past the unmarked boxes on my check list. So today. I will throw a pity party. I will let myself feel stressed and frustrated and tired and I will let the tears flow until I crawl into bed. Because tomorrow is a new day. Tomorrow will be a happy day. Telling yourself you aren't allowed to feel the sad stuff is telling yourself a lie. Its hiding your hurt and that's how your mental health gets lopsided. So today, let yourself feel whatever you need to feel so that tomorrow is a fresh start.
Happiest of birthdays to my best friend! I don’t even know where to begin, but I’ll keep it short. You’ve given me my life back. You challenge me and help me grow every single day. You help me in so many aspects of my life. I’m incredibly blessed to have you by my side. Thank you for coming into my life when I needed you most. 💜 . . . #tbi #tbiawareness #braininjury #chronicpain #alldayeveryday #pushon #fighter #chronicovercomer #chronicwarrior #servicedogintraining #respectthevest #donotpet #servicedog #helperdog #sdit #mygirl #blackdog #dogswithjobs #dogsthatwork #workingdog #workingline #workinglineGSD #bettertogether #germanshepherd #blackgermanshepherd #gsd #TYD #trustyourdog #independencetogether #bettertogether
I went out with my mom to athome today. Once we had gotten home I realized I wanted to make sloppy Joe's, but I've only had the with beef(which I've been allergic to for a few years now) so I haven't had them in a few years and got ground chicken for these today! It was a hit with my mom which is always good~ . . . . #chronicillness #chronicallyill #chronicovercomer #chronicallyfabulous #disability #disabled #ibs #irritablebowelsyndrome #irritablebowel #irritablestomach #ibswarrior #ibsc #allergies #beefallergy #lonestartickallergies
🚨🚑💔 Please pray for Garrett he had a massive heart attack (a 100% blockage of his right coronary artery) today and we found out he has been having small heart attacks for the last few days as well. But he is always too stubborn to admit anything is wrong. This is his first time ever having to be in the hospital for himself, and let me tell you he doesn’t like it one bit, poor guy. Thankfully they put a stent in and he seems to be doing okay, I will most likely only be able to update my story from now on so if you want to be updated keep a eye out there. It’s crazy to think he could have this happen even when he is so young but his dad had a heart attack at the same age, so genetics are for sure a factor, I’m sure Garrett working so much all the time and doing such hard manual labor didn’t help either. Thanks for all the prayers after I posted on my story, cause I didn’t have time to write everything out in a post till now, Garrett is sleeping comfortably. Colt is jealous because I’m sharing the bed with Garrett😂 when normally I’m in the bed and shares with me. For now he gets the floor but he will probably end up sleeping with him tonight cause of course Garrett will love that, I will be sleeping in a lounge chair next to Garrett’s bed. Today has been so hard. Lots of tears and stress. I’m exhausted but can’t calm my mind down. I will just lay here praying which is all I can do and hope to relax enough to sleep too. Garrett I love you! I am so thankful for you! I can’t believe I almost lost you and I don’t even know what I would do! It’s so crazy for me to be on the other end of the medical emergency and I don’t know how you have done it for so many years with such grace and strength, I’m a mess. 💕💕💕Love you, love you, love you! I don’t think I could say that enough. #ServiceDog #Fighter #IChooseJoy #Vlogger #TheLordIsMyStrength #IChooseJesus #Survivor #Blessed #DoNotDistractServiceDogs #ChronicOvercomer #ICanDoAllThingsThroughChrist #HeIsGreaterThanI #StruckDownButNotDestroyed #FearIsALiar #heartattack #coronaryinfarction #hospital #ontheoutsidelookingin #pleasepray #husband #icantloseyou #GodhasAplan #stressed #surgery #bloodthinners
Chronic illness reality is tough. I had a great time at the Renaissance Festival today, but the hours of walking and being out and about did me in. Spending tonight recovering on the couch, because my pain is high and my spoons are low. It was worth it, but the reality of the aftermath isn't always easy to handle. #chronicillness #spoonielife #chronicovercomer #eds #spoonie #edslife #dowhatyouthinkyoucantdo #mcas #dysautonomia #pots #spoons #reality #fatigue #chronicpain
Being back at school means that we get to hang out with @service.pup.koda more! 😍 Koda is such a good boy, and Niki is an absolute sweetheart! Koda and Dakota (They will be referred to as “Koda squared”) work side-by-side together so well! They ignore each other when they are basically touching, but still find small ways to cuddle up to each other. I find this super shocking because Dakota absolutely doesn’t like to dog pile, but I guess that changes when a boyfriend comes into the picture!!! 🤔
Got some big appointments coming up soon!! I am actually really excited for, which is something thats weird to think about. There is a point in life when you have a chronic illness, that you’ve been sick for so long (8+ years for me) that when there is new and upcoming things, you get excited about them. Hopefully my appointments will open up some new treatment options! 😍👏🏻
🐕❤️🐾 Fun play date with a fellow service dog friend today. Service dogs get off time too. We haven’t gotten to hang out together in a while due to health and life, we all had so much fun catching up and the dogs ran and ran. Reagan is also a English lab, Colt is a English lab and weimaraner from a breeder. You can see they have the same forehead haha 😆 I love these two together they make us crack up. #ServiceDog #TBI #TraumaticBrainInjury #Fighter #IChooseJoy #YouTuber #Vlogger #TheLordIsMyStrength #IChooseJesus #Seizures #Survivor #HeroDog #RawFedDog #Blessed #DoNotDistractServiceDogs #Hypoglycemic #ChronicOvercomer #ICanDoAllThingsThroughChrist #HeIsGreaterThanI #ServiceDogColt #RealLifeDory #JustKeepSwimming #TrickDog #InvisibleDisability #Spoonie #Syncope #StruckDownButNotDestroyed #TonicClonicSeizures #ChronicPain #FearIsALiar
Its been a year since I started using a wheelchair and yes, I can walk, but not for long distances and not every day. Oddly enough my HR and vitals are most stable when I'm sitting (not lying down or standing) so I use a wheelchair. Though there are many other reasons I use a wheelchair. . This is me fighting, not a sign of me giving up. Every day I fight for my future. I fight for better days that are hoped for but not always imaginable with my conditions and limitations. For those first few seconds every morning I don't know if the spinal dislocations that have been occurring in my sleep have finally made it so I can't walk. So I'm grateful for every step I take, and I'm also grateful for the days I'm in my chair because both days still have an unimaginable potential for love, joy, happiness and beauty. · I am an ambulatory wheelchair user. I walk when I can and rest when I need to, and I refuse to be ashamed or hide because I'm different. 💪 · · #chronicovercomer #ambulatorywheelchairusersexist #notgivingup #ehlersdanlossyndrome #dysautonomia #NCS #Neurocardiogenicsyncope #Zebrastrong #ichoosejoy
Two years ago I was taking my last semester of classes for my associates degree. The day after the semester ended I was up early for a #baclofenpump replacement surgery. One year ago I was planning and preparing for a tibia and fibula derotation osteotomy surgery and I now have a few classes left for my bachelor of arts degree. I have learned the true understanding of the saying “ if you want something bad enough, you’ll do whatever it takes to get it” 💗. #flashbackfriday #livetoinspire #chronicovercomer #surgery #college #iamable #favoriteflashback #qoutesoftheday
Discouraged and frustrated to say the least. What I wanted to do with nutrition is not working out for this gastroparesis body. I am miserable and sick from eating whole foods, fiber, plant based, etc. How can I live like this? Despite my best efforts, faith, and lots of prayer, my body just won't cooperate. My gastroparesis won't go away. My stomach just won't work! 😟 Now, I know there is no cure for GP, but I was hoping I would be an exception! I must go back to a GP friendly diet, which for me is mostly liquid. Even that just sits in my tummy forever. Not even my medical cannabis is helping. I'm reminded why I needed a feeding tube to begin with. 😟 Without it now, it's hard to get what I need. I am thankful that God is sustaining me through all of this. I will still try to eat as healthy as I can with making my own GP friendly foods. I can't explain how devastating it feels to have these health issues and no matter what you do, it won't get better. I remain steadfast knowing God is in control and take solace in that. He is after all, the sustainer of life. ✝️ And hey, I don't live on bread alone. 😉 #bebrave #bestrong #remainsteadfast #chronicovercomer #livelifetothefullest #keepmovingforward #chronicillness #invisibleillness #gastroparesis #starvingforacure #eds #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #dysautonomia #pots #myastheniagravis #chronicwarrior #spoonie #spoonielife #zebrastrong #psoriaticarthritis #youdontlooksick #mcad #mastcellactivationsyndrome #mastcelldisorder #notgoingdownwithoutafight
The day after classes is always hard. My symptoms are normally flared and it takes every ounce of energy to get out of bed in the morning. The fatigue is indescribable. So what do we do? We relax! We relax because that’s what you have to when you have a chronic condition. Yes, there are things I need to be doing, but relaxing is something I need to do too. But tomorrow we will get back at it! ☺️ . . . #tbi #tbiawareness #braininjury #chronicpain #alldayeveryday #pushon #fighter #chronicovercomer #chronicwarrior #servicedogintraining #respectthevest #donotpet #servicedog #helperdog #sdit #mygirl #blackdog #dogswithjobs #dogsthatwork #workingdog #workingline #workinglineGSD #bettertogether #germanshepherd #blackgermanshepherd #gsd #TYD #trustyourdog #independencetogether #bettertogether
Just finished up my calendar along with filling out my paperwork for my colonoscopy. My stomach is growling but I have no appetite...my mom is helping me make pasta.

I went to my GI and my nutritionist yesterday! I got yet another medication to try for my constipation. We also decided its time for me to get a colonoscopy to see how everything is looking and why none of these medications are either not working or working too well for my constipation. I'm set for the 17th and I'll be off of work from the 15th-19th so it'll be nice to recover and relax both before and after the colonoscopy. I'm boyfriend will be going with me and we're going to be there early in the morning which sucks but I'll take what I can get. . . . . #chronicillness #chronicallyill #chronicovercomer #chronicallyfabulous #disability #disabled #ibs #irritablebowelsyndrome #irritablebowel #irritablestomach #ibswarrior #ibsc #colonoscopy

I received two more "No's" today. Mayo clinic will not see me. I have been getting the run around with doctors lately but I'm trying to hold onto the promise that everything will work out. That every no is adding up to a greater yes. Every "I don't know" or "I can't help" will be turned in my favor someday. I'm holding on to hope that Christ is working really hard behind the scenes to get me where I need to be. I am choosing to trust in his timing and process because with Christ there is no mystery. He knows what needs fixing and how to help. So I'll keep trying, and keep searching, and keep fighting because he has promised to help if we trust in him and do our part to work things out. He won't fail or forsake me. · Proverbs 3: 10 (KJV) · #trustingod #faith #scripturestudy #didyouthinktopray #chronicovercomer #Ibelieveinchrist #thechurchofjesuschristoflatterdaysaints #Christian #chronicallyhopeful #chronicillnesswarrior #notgoingtoquit #ichoosejoy #ichoosetofighton
❤️💋💜 I love these, they always remind me of my family. Some of you may already know this but I actually have 12 Russian siblings and two half Russian sisters. I was raised with them since the age of two so they are my siblings, big family. I use to be fluent in Russian before my brain injury and many people always thought I was also Russian when they saw us talking while shopping or whatever. Now I only know a faction of what I use to but it still makes me happy to have had this cultural experience in my life and my big family. ❓What languages do you know❓answer in the comments below. #ServiceDog #TBI #TraumaticBrainInjury #Fighter #IChooseJoy #YouTuber #Vlogger #TheLordIsMyStrength #IChooseJesus #Seizures #Survivor #HeroDog #RawFedDog #Blessed #DoNotDistractServiceDogs #Hypoglycemic #ChronicOvercomer #ICanDoAllThingsThroughChrist #HeIsGreaterThanI #ServiceDogColt #RealLifeDory #JustKeepSwimming #TrickDog #InvisibleDisability #Spoonie #Syncope #StruckDownButNotDestroyed #TonicClonicSeizures #ChronicPain #FearIsALiar
17 more days until the @tribeca #TribecaTVFestival and I am so excited! This past week and a half my health has been really unstable and I’ve spent a lot of time in the hospital and doctors offices (a concussion from fainting, a hospital admission, an ambulance ride, cardiologist, etc). We added a new heart medication so I’m hoping my health is and will continue to be a bit more stable because going to this event is a dream come true for me. Words can’t express how grateful I am to have this opportunity! Fingers crossed! Sending love and light to you all!! 💛💪🏼🌻☀️ @nbcsvu@therealmariskahargitay • • #EncourageOthers#spoonie #chroniclife #spoonielife #celebratelife #spoonies #dysautonomia #ehlersdanlossyndrome #eds #prolactinoma #PCOS #chronicovercomer #hope #inspire #POTS #disability #disabled #choosejoy #spoonie #cfs #myelgicencephalomyelitis #ME #pwme #vsco #writersofinstagram #metoo #mariskahargitay
Despite my medical challenges, I can do physically fierce things..... 🥊💪🏻(My new personal motto!) . . . Yesterday was an exciting first of what I hope to be many more fitness adventures and epic challenges. It’s been over 4 years since I’ve been able to push my body as intensely as I was able to push myself yesterday, and.... IT WAS AMAZING! I definitely think I’ve found a new love (kickboxing and boxing), and am excited to see what other things my body (and mindset) are able to accomplish, despite my limitations. . . . Here’s to tackling new fitness goals and continuing to rise above challenges, in an effort to continue to live my best and most healthiest life possible! . . . . . . . #musculardystrophy #cancer #kickboxing #boxing #kickboxinggirl #girlpower #fit #fitness #mastectomy #breastcancer #leukemia #ovariancancer #cervicalcancer #uterinecancer #wellnesswarrior #guthealth #glutenfree #invisibledisability #spoonie #spoonielife #fighter #invisibleillnessawareness #invisibleillness #overcomer #chronicovercomer #pulmonaryhypertension #diet #exercise #wellness #hysterectomy
🎶I Am A Child of God Sweet Hour of Prayer 🎶 . Music is very special to me. Its actually become one of my favorite forms of medicine. If I'm depressed, anxious, or sad I turn on music or just start singing if I don't have access to any at the moment. I learned the type of music I listen to affects my mood so for me its Christian music, EFY, Mormon Tabernacle choir, classical music mostly but I listen to other types as well! Mostly uplifting songs though. . I Am A Child of God is my favorite go-to song when I'm not feeling well and its been known to calm me down when in a psychotic episode. I love the comfort music brings into my heart, and the truths we learn from beautiful music can really help overcome obstacles. . Have you ever thought about how a song makes you feel when you listen to the words? Does it make you feel happy or does it make you feel sad or anxious? Music is powerful, that is why I love songs that make me feel happy and confident. There are enough things in this world to make me sad or unhappy. . Music is my happy place and favorite form of medicine. [I haven't played these songs in a while and play only by ear really as I have never had lessons. I just love making music even if its not that great 😊]· · #loverofmusic #musictherapy #thechurchofjesuschristoflatterdaysaints #iamachildofgod #Daughterofaking #chronicovercomer #overcomerinchrist #notperfectbutworkingonit #ichoosejoy
Spending the evening on the couch because of pain, but I got my new sweatshirt and spent time at the beach today! Thanks @freyliving @peterfreylife @thefreylife for reminding me to find joy in the little things and to laugh every day ❤ #chronicillness #spoonielife #chronicovercomer #spoonie #thefreylife #laugheveryday #dowhatyouthinkyoucantdo #findjoy #ichoosejoy #grateful
Really proud of this girly 💜 She did really well today. I enjoy going to the farmer’s market every Saturday because we see all kinds of things and we can work on so much. It’s a great place to train and I highly recommend it to people! Today was extra special because I met someone my age who also has a brain injury (along with some other health issues). When I’m in public, I rarely find people my age with similar medical issues as me. It was very nice to talk with her for a little ☺️ . . . #tbi #tbiawareness #braininjury #chronicpain #alldayeveryday #pushon #fighter #chronicovercomer #chronicwarrior #servicedogintraining #respectthevest #donotpet #servicedog #helperdog #sdit #mygirl #blackdog #dogswithjobs #dogsthatwork #workingdog #workingline #workinglineGSD #bettertogether #germanshepherd #blackgermanshepherd #gsd #TYD #trustyourdog #independencetogether #bettertogether
