• finding enjoyment • The month of September represents a lot of pain for me as I try to accept that I am still unable to go and finish my degree and am physically quite unwell. Today was my first trip outside in a long while. I wasn’t able to manage for very long, but I made sure to squeeze out every bit of enjoyment I could! I find it so important to purposely search for the small things that I enjoy to keep me from getting overwhelmed by my circumstances. So today that involved ignoring the unnecessarily high fence and pulling myself up so I could properly see the goats at the petting zoo! #itsthelittlethings #lifeonwheels #chronicpain
⚠️acupunture⚠️ yesterday was round two of acupuncture treatment and after the first treatment wasn’t sure if I noticed a difference but after runs two I am making a point to take note of any changes day after day till treatment 3 and see if this is working at all. . . #chronicillness #invisibledisability #disability #disabled #pots #awareness #raredisease #chronicfatigue #zebrastrong #chronicpain #disabilityawareness #mayoclinic #panicattacks #superventriculartachycardia #svt #Neurocardiogenicsyncope #ncs #narcolepsy #cysticfibrosis #cf #lymesdisease #chronicillnesswarrior #spoonie #eds #servicedog #servicedoghandler #mastcellactivationsyndrome #mcas #disorders #rarediseases

BUT YOU LOOK FINE?! When you live with fibromyalgia every day is different. You never know what the day is going to be like. Sure we look fine, and sure I may have been great, active and appeared happy yesterday, however no two days are the same. Heck no two hours are the same. For those of you reading this and have a chronic illness you know how easy it is to get depressed and disappointed in yourself. Though you have NO control over the illness that is trying to suck the life out you. Always remember tomorrow is a new day, NEVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF! *I am having an excruciating back pain day again, and started beating myself up. So I found this the perfect opportunity to encourage others not to give up. I have worked way to hard for to long to get to this point. I may not be able to take the journey as fast as others but I will continue. I may have to cancel plans , not show up to the gym or decline invitations but that's ok . I am a WARRIOR and will NOT quit.
All your injuries can accumulate as scar tissues within your body until any given one triggering a nasty situation. It looks terrifying, but it is the necessary process for your sports injuries to recover from the damage. This is the scar tissue that causing your deterioration. 👀Take a close look that there is no skin damage at all. We are not doing slapping therapy. The treatment is different than cupping therapy and Gua Sha. this technique is more precise and target a much deeper injury within the joints Do you know that the pain and soreness from the trigger point actually can be eliminated? Do you know what was the reason caused trigger point? #anklebreaker #sportsinjury #rockclimbing #healthcare #health #FingershockingtherapyTraditionalChinesetherapy #Chinesemedicine #naturopathicmedicine #Regenerativemedicine #scartissue #chronicpain #myofascialrelease #Sprain #Strain #backpain #muscles #Plantarfasciitis #aging #musclebiology #中華古傳單指化瘀

🇬🇧KEY WEST CONCERT (PART 2) And here is the famous Unplugged by @antigoneproject and Rémi Forriere on the "TEDTANIC". One of the best in the group, thousands of spectators (9 spectators counting us to be precise ...), an atmosphere of madness and a savior turtle speaker Caribbean, I named TED !! CREDITS: Fred on guitar and singing Rémi at the camping chair We almost played on Mallory Square the last day, but concert canceled at the last minute for indecency. Too many female fans showed us their boobs and did discomfort in the crowd. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------🇫🇷CONCERT A KEY WEST (2EME PARTIE) Et voici le fameux Unplugged de @antigoneproject et Rémi Forriere sur le « TEDTANIC ». Un des meilleurs du groupe, des milliers de spectateurs (9 spectateurs en nous comptant pour être précis…), une ambiance de folie et un speaker sauveur de tortues des Caraïbes, j’ai nommé TED !! CREDITS : Fred à la guitare et au chant Rémi à la chaise de camping On a failli jouer sur Mallory Square le dernier jour, mais concert annulé à la dernière minute pour atteinte à la pudeur.

Port update.. I’ve developed some sort of rash and I’m unsure what has caused it. I am seeing my allergist doctor tomorrow and discussing my allergy medications because I am still dealing with hives and irritated skin. I’m not feeling well and having rough few months. 😔 I hope better days are ahead for me soon. My health just isn’t doing well and not seeing the improvements that my doctors and I want. I hope you’re having a beautiful day ☀️ #postop #port #chestport #autoimmunedisease #colitis #arthritis #rhuematoidarthritis #fibromyalgia #ehlersdanlossyndrome #pots #gastroparesis #cdiff #cyclicvomitingsyndrome #anemia #migraine #chronicpain #chronicpainsyndrome #gerd #chronicallyill #ibs #ibd #eds #gp #centralline
Wow ... just Wow! Two years I have suffered so immensely with not a single answer or snippet of hope. Been subject to every medical test and lab work 10 different Doctors could do. Been so far down I never thought I’d make it back! Not until today ... not until I found this book that’s already changed my life for the best. #thereisalightattheendofthetunnel #chronicpelvicpain #chronicpelvicpainsyndrome #nonbacterialprostatitis #chronicnonbacterialprostatitis #pelvicpain #cpps #interstitialcystitis #pelvicfloordysfunction #asymptomaticinflammatoryprostatitis #headacheinthepelvis #chronicpain #chronicillness #fibromyalgia

Not going to lie I have been struggling. I'm tired and sore and foggy. My emotions are all over the place. I've had one big flare for about 2 weeks. Its been progressively getting worse. I could barely get out of bed today. My legs were shaking like I worked out for hours. My arms are weak. I'm exhausted. One of the things I have noticed is my carb cravings are sky high when I have a flare, but eating carbs also adds to my flare. I'll get back to "normal" soon. At least my new "normal". 😔 . . #keto #tryingketo #ketodiet #ketofam #ketoweightloss #ketofood   #ketojourney #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossjourney2018 #healthy #healthyliving #fibromyalgia #chronicillness #invisibleillness #chronicpain #fibrofighter
#Krama in #sanskrit means step, succession, progression • This #word if often heard in #vinyasa yoga classes • It is a step by step progression of events • In yoga, a step by step progression of poses • During a vinyasa yoga class with #kramas the teacher builds up a #sequence towards a peak pose or poses • • You didn’t know? • Now you know 😜 • #Namaste 🙏

Nothing like watching a nature video to slow your anxiety about (really) anything. . I took this up in Ely, MN earlier this summer at the #NorthAmericanBearCenter . . Just a video of a black bear in front of a waterfall, chomping on some twigs/leaves with the promise of yummy berries! So cool and nature-y! Still glad I was behind the glass though....#MagesticCreature

Just so y’all know- I don’t post about my migraines & my fibro flares so y’all will feel sorry for me- I post about them and my depression to raise awareness. To stop the stigma around mental health issues. To educate ppl on what life with chronic pain is like. I don’t want sympathy, I want understanding! Life’s to short not to share my story, my journey. So if you follow me this is what you get, lol! Honesty, real life stuff, just me living me life! I’m a very big believer in advocating for yourself! So keep following! I appreciate each & every one of you! And y’all are an inspiration to me!!! ❤️❤️❤️#inspiration #fibromyalgia #depression #ptsd #anxiety #advocate #chronicpain #chronicillness #bpd #migraine #pain #life #endthestigma #awareness
For me, a balance of THC and CBD is the key to managing high pain days. I don’t use pharmaceuticals to manage pain anymore- NSAIDS like Motrin cause me GI distress and I no longer use narcotics - so I’ll be layering cannabis products throughout the day for pain relief. @veranobrands 2:1 Strawberry Peach Troches @dixiebrands 1:1 Synergy Relief Balm @libertycannabis 1:1 Medihaze Cart @paxvapor with @libertycannabis Blueberry Serenity pod 🌱 💨 ♥️ . . #cannabisnurse #cannabiscommunity #marylandcannabis #fibromyalgia #chronicpain #fatigue #cannabis #nopharmaceuticals #cannabislife

100 days Stem Cells follow up 💉✨ • Today was my first day back at Infusio, almost four months after getting my stem cells, for my post-100 days follow up appointment with my doctor • It was so exciting & emotional to see everyone. After spending 3 weeks at the clinic in May, I became so close to all the staff, & the other patients who were in treatment at the same time as me were also back for their follow ups too which was so great to catch up & see everyone’s progress • During my consult, Dr Kim looked over & explained my scans from today compared with those from May, & we discussed what has improved, what still has a way to go to heal, & what my body still needs additional support for. There have been lots of changes & very positive signs that can account for the fact that I am feeling better, but I still have a way to go & a lot that still needs work, as expected at this early stage in recovery. We talked about the improvements I have seen & symptoms I’m still struggling with, & made a plan for treatment this week & when I return home. Dr Kim is an amazing doctor; so knowledgable about Lyme & so caring, always taking the time to explain everything & make sure the treatment is best personalised to suit the individual. I feel so fortunate to be a patient here & to have had this opportunity • The plan for the rest of this week is to get supportive IVs & pre-treatment tomorrow before getting the ACT treatment on Wednesday, & then some final IVs & therapies at the end of the week. I am nervous for the ACT but feel more prepared after talking to Dr Kim, as she feels it will really help give my immune system, which is still struggling, a boost. She also recommended that I do 10-pass ozone to help with SIBO, & genetic testing to investigate why my body struggles to process vitamins, & what long term support I may need for this. I then did 15 minutes in the Nova bed before I was done for the day • It feels really good to be back at Infusio & I felt like a completely different person walking through the door this morning, both mentally & physically. Lots has happened over the past 4 months & I’m looking forwards to seeing further improvement over the next year 💚
#transformationtuesday Man I’ve spent so much time feeling intimidated by others. Do you ever ask yourself why? FatRoni knows that these Feelings are Toxic, FitRoni know that I have to Face It Today so that I can Fix It Today! But how do you Face It? Truth is you have to develop thick skin, and I know that if you are truly passionate about what you are doing, you will be willing to take whatever life throws your way. First step us to identify the feeling associated with the thought. At first it’s not obvious, but as you dig into it, you will be surprised what surfaces. That you Face It and Fix It! Love ❤️ always, #FatRoni
Knowing that I have a lumbar twist and rotated hip which causes a lot of back pain, I try to prepare as much as possible before long drives or flights !! ⠀ I’m traveling to 🇮🇪 Ireland on Thursday, heads up I may be flooding this page with the gorgeous landscapes and colorful towns but also how I keep my progress in check no matter what I’m doing because I know if I have a flare up it will affect everything else 🙃 ⠀ #pigeonpose is my favorite stretch, all my clients walk in happy to report they’ve done their homework for the week adding it into their schedule once they feel the benefits. It’s easy to do and no equipment needed ! Aside from being a great hip opener, the Pigeon Pose helps relieve sciatic and back pain. It’s emotional benefits are amazing as well as it is a primal reaction to store stress, trauma, fear and anxiety in the hips. ⠀ YouTube BEGINNER PIGEON POSE for a few minutes of self care today !
I laughed when I found this!!! Exact words from a friend last week...😵😵😵 💜#fibromyalgia #fatigue #chronicillness #chronicpain #mentalhealth #ocd #depression #anxiety

After multi-day migraine hangover is the worst. - Still have a raging headache and sound/ light sensitivity. - But the auras/ severe vertigo are gone for now. Brain feels like fuzz. - Just have to be super careful not to overdo it today and cause it to turn back into a full blown migraine. 😩 ❤❤❤ . . . . . #ChronicPain #ChronicIllness #Fibromyalgia #MarfanSyndrome #InvisibleIllness #Neuropathy #Migraines #ChronicPainSyndrome #SpoonieWarrior #ChronicMigraines #StayingPositive #PushingThroughThePain
Doing super super bad since yesterday. My stomach and body keeps spasming qnd cramping. I've been in horrible pain. So I curled up next to the fire. My daughter brought me our new Halloween blankets and my pillow with the new pillow case I made so I would be comfy. ♡ I think I pushed myself to do too much because my daughter wanted to decorate for Halloween so of course I pushed myself to do that before my body made me lay down. #smile #thankful #loveher #badday #chronicpain #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #pots #potsawareness #fire #becomingfall #love #loved #comfy #halloween #halloweenspirit #notevenoctoberyet #mydaughterissosweet #newpillowcase #imadethat #pierced #tattooed #feelingfall #snapchat #halloweendecorating #boo #scaredycat #blankets

On the left I am in excrutiating pain, my head is throbbing my back is throbbing and every movement makes me nauseated, on the right I am in excrutiating pain, my head is throbbing my back is throbbing and every movement makes me nauseated. The difference between the 2 photos is that the one on the right I have to pretend to be ok because I'm expected to be at work...don't judge a person by the way they look on the outside, you don't know what battles they are fighting! #chronicillness #chronicpain #migraine #fatigue
I have a few friends who are constantly telling me how lovely their lives are...now don’t get me wrong, I’m so happy for them. But I also feel 😑😑😑. Sometimes I feel like a bad friend for feeling this way. For being jealous or a little bit of resentment. But I think maybe what I’m feeling is normal in that situation. Those conversations make me see the huge differences in our lives. I’m learning to focus on all the good I have, but it’s going to take some time. 💜#fibromyalgia #fatigue #chronicillness #chronicpain #mentalhealth #ocd #depression #anxiety

It’s easy for me to talk about the physiological benefits of breath practices (O2, C02) i know it. (See IGTV) 🧠👈🏻 What’s more difficult is for me to talk about is the felt experience or emotional element of breath practices. 👁💗 What I can say from my own experience is that intentional breathing practices can & will help you move towards & through emotional stuckness. Which might not be what you were expecting. I’m never surprised if tears/ irritation etc happen when individuals breathe into different new spaces. As a teacher it’s my job to hold your space. I love to finish class in deep long relaxation to allow you to gain your composure before you head off out again. I’ve been there and I’m so grateful for all the teachers who have warmly held space for me over the years. Studies on post-traumatic stress point towards breath over asana as a tool to improved long term health outcomes. Breath matters.
