I was on duty with mama today while we did an inspection at another house. This is the 2nd house we have gone thru this on and mama says everything is looking a lot better this time. Things can still change but we are hopeful this will be our new forever home ♡ I was at least enjoying the view to the backyard :) #servicedog #servicedogs #servicedogsofig #sdit #disability #ehlersdanlossyndrome #eds #hypermobile #zebrawarrior #pots #multiplesclerosis #migranes #fatigue #musclespasms #Dysesthesia #dysautonomia #insomnia #nausea #chronicpain #spoonie #chronicillness #msawareness #anxiety #mswarrior #mssucks #advocate #invisibleillness #notalldisabilitiesarevisible

Bramble casually stealing my footplate as an arm rest looking like he's about to offer some smooth advice 😂A lady at the last bus stop tonight kept standing over us and talking to Bramble and another lady told her off several times, telling her to stop and that it clearly says do not distract on his vest.

This was me, this morning, ready to get things done 💪 . I haven't accomplished as much as I had hoped to by now, but most of that was due to the fact that the water line and sewer were being worked on all day right in front of my apartment 😌 . #sotired #noisy #distracting #waterline #watermain #somuchnoise #sleepyhead #sleepdeprived #spoonie #spoonielife #chronicfatigue #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #invisibleillness #invisibleillnesswarrior #ehlersdanlos #hypermobility #ehlersdanlossyndrome #eds #hypermobilitysyndrome #heds
Slowly, slowly dipping toes back into actually doing (not solely teaching) dynamic hoop. Still being overcareful about really seriously not hyperextending my shoulders. Trying not to overfocus on how I'm not where I was when I was 24 and pre-injury, pre-hypermobility-increase. I'm 30 and my collagen is wonky and I'm still gonna make art with my body, dammit. . And, I am still (always) going to teach, and will always focus on my teaching life as separate from my performing or doing-aerials life. Teaching and performing/doing are separate skills. An acrobat performing a skill flawlessly onstage or on Insta is no guarantee that they will be *at all* competent at teaching that skill to any student. . . No lie: getting injured and having to teach without any demonstration, without being able to *do* any aerials, for five years made me a much, much better teacher. My toolbox of explanations and drills and exercises and riddles exploded. My understanding of anatomy and physiology deepened tenfold. My ability to connect to students who were struggling leveled up. As much as this disorder sucks, and as much as I wish I could still move without reservation or fear of dislocation, I am grateful for the insights that being less than fully abled has afforded me. . . . #ehlersdanlosaerialist #hypermobileaerialist #aerialist #ehlersdanlos #eds #hypermobility #acrobat #disabledacrobat #lyra #hoop #aerialhoop #aerialistsofig #aerialteacher #aerialinstructor #aerialcoach #coach #aerialacrobat

48hrs...That’s it, in 48hrs I will be hopefully finishing up with my first ever IVIg treatment! Today was filled with getting fluids, getting treats from my fav nurses since I won’t be seeing them until we can transfer my treatment back home. And making tons of phone calls/emails to my medical team making sure everything is aligned and nothing slips through the cracks. Managing health is complicated but throw in there being chronically ill, your medical team being 3.5hrs away it’s very complicated and a full time job (unfortunately without pay or benefits☹️). I’m filled with tons of excitement, hope, nerves, and fear. I’m hoping to post throughout the day of my treatment however I don’t know how my body is going to cooperate. So I may give my mom a crash Instagram course.
After our outing today, our gear 100% no longer fits. Dont know what we are going to do when it comes to outings. I might take him naked or just not go out. We did some off leash training today because my hands were numb, he did great as usual but mis behaved near the end and tried to wonder off + was sniffing and licking lots of things. #servicedogfail - #servicedog #servicedogs #servicedogsofinstagram #disability #seizures #seizure #migraine #eds #pots #spoonie #chronicallyill #chronicillness #chronicpain #disabled #autism #ptsd #panicdisorder
Long time no post! This morning I was diagnosed with gastroparesis. My gastroenterologist was actually knowledgeable about EDS and diagnosed me based on my symptoms and medical history (EDS and mono both are strongly correlated with GP). She said it wouldn't make sense to do a gastric emptying study since the antidepressant I'm on would make me come up positive no matter what, but that my antidepressant is actually commonly prescribed for GP as well. I'm having an endoscopy in a few weeks to get more information about how best I can be treated. New diagnoses are simultaneously relieving and frustrating. On the one hand, I have an explanation for my symptoms and a doctor who's going to try and help treat me. On the other, it's yet another chronic illness on the list that I'm going to be stuck with for the rest of my life. So today is a mixed feelings kind of day. #gastroparesis #eds #ehlersdanlossyndrome #pots #potsie #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #chronicillness #chronicallyill #edstype3 #hypermobility #chronicpain #spoonie #dysautonomia #edsawareness
When the weather gets colder my joints aren’t to happy (to put it mildly!) and I find myself having daily ‘zebra moments ‘. 🦓 So, I just had to #regrann this NOT to do list from @spoonie_village. 🥄Perfect! 🥄 #remember #selfcare #spoonie #EDS #zebrawarrior #chronicfatigue
Mi príncipe parece que estuviera entrenando boxeo, pero no....algunas personas comentan, seguro eres muy travieso y por eso te pasó, pues tampoco el es muy tranquilo, o seguro estás falta de calcio y otros tantos comentarios, Como no llora porque le duele piensan que no es nada lo que tiene, quisiera encontrar la manera más sencilla de explicarle a las personas lo que significa el poder de las palabras, juzgar sin saber, para un niño que no quiere lastimarse y una madre que trata en lo posible de cuidarlo sin llegar a ser sobreprotectora. Les llamo guerreros porque a pesar de sus lesiones sonrien, estudian, hacen sus terapias con entusiasmo y al menos que el dolor se torne insoportable los escuchamos decir me duele. Hagamos más conciencia y aprendamos a ser más amables con las demás personas 🕊️💕🌼no sabemos qué pasa detrás que cada rostro hay enfermedades que son invisibles como el Síndrome de Ehlers Danlos.#miguerrera #principeguerrero #amordemadre #EDS #Diosesmifortaleza #zebrastrong #
When you’re on #day6 of a #migraine and received some really crappy medical news the day before. I’m at a point where I’ve hit my limit. We all have them and I have definitely hit my limit. Between being sick, dealing with debilitating pain day in and out, dislocations and subluxations, seizures, brain fog that’s beyond debilitating, migraines etc and now this news, a person can only take so much. It also doesn’t help that I have less than supporting family who who find find conditions to be an inconvenience. (I’ve told them) To be told that a necessary surgery I had to have when I was 13 years old was my fault and something I begged for is a dick move, hard blow, and one of the many reasons I want a #deathwithdignity . (No I’m not suicidal) And after the pain I experienced this weekend and knowing it’s only going to happen again and get worse, why should anyone have to live like that? I will be updating on what we found in a day or so. We just have to tell a couple people who are more sympathetic than our DNA buddies. (Bless their hearts of course) #ehlersdanlossyndrome #ehlersdanlos #eds #edsawareness #adrenalinsufficiency #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #pots #mcas #chronicallyfabulous #chronicallyrara
@em_carey wrote a beautiful caption about her ability to adapt after her life changing injuries & how she learnt her life would be full of catheters from now on (swipe for her well written words). I had a similar chat with my mum today. This time last year I was about to start having bladder installations for the first time. The idea of anything going up my pee hole made me cringe and here I am a year later self-catheterising daily. My handbag is never without them 👜 • The process of adapting isn’t easy. I’ve had many nights sitting on the bathroom floor in tears covered in pee & in excruciating pain. But you do adapt as you have no other choice 💦
My dad said *again* that he thinks I’m not sick and that my mobility aids are just “badges” for attention (I have a GP note for my crutches). Last Monday, my dad told my GP that he thought there was nothing wrong with me - and that he thinks I have “Munchausen Syndrome” (my best friend in real life @diaryofamunchiekid has Munchausen Syndrome so I know more about it than the average person does, and I also know that it is not something I have) because I seem to enjoy being “sick” and seem to"pick all these rare conditions that are difficult to diagnose" (he doesn’t understand the concept of co morbidity and genetically linked conditions, or just coincidences, and the fact that "all these rare conditions" are all one condition - Ehlers Danlos Syndrome! He also misses the fact that I didn't "pick" to be sick.). My GP *luckily* laughed at him, and said that’s rather difficult in itself to diagnose, and theres some things that you can't fake no matter how hard you try, like joint hypermobility. He doesn't realise the impact that his words have on me (despite the fact we argue a lot he is my dad and his words do affect me). He watches me struggle everyday, ask for their prescription painkillers when I'm out, and not get out of bed some days at all, sit in the toilet or lie on the bathroom floor for a couple of hours at a time to stop myself having accidents & being sick - yet he still tells me I am attention seeking and won't support me. Quote from my dad - “I’ve never met somebody that makes such an obvious display of being disabled as you.". I don't make a display of being disabled, I campaign and blog so the next 'me' might have an easier time, I use a walking stick, crutches and sometimes even a wheelchair or mobility scooter when I am out so I can conserve energy and be in a bit less pain for the rest of the week. I write about my experiences to vent & deal with my emotions in a more healthiest way possible as I am not under any mental health support service long term. #eds #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #raredisease #zebra #chronicillness #chronicpain #disabilityblogger . . #spoonielife #spoonies #spoonieforlife #spooniecommunity #spoonietruth #spoon
Love the beautiful flowers that @kayleighmae02 gave me 💙 . I’m loving university and Brighton is such a good place to be living! Even though going to the big freshers events isn’t really an option it doesn’t feel like that’s stopping me from getting to know people. The main problem I’m hitting is fatigue so I’m sleeping for around 14-15 hours a day when you add all the naps together. But that’s not unexpected because there’s so much going on, I’m just trying to pace myself really carefully 🦓 #flowers #rose #spoonie #spoonielife #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #ehlersdanlossyndrome #eds #chronicillness
Me and pony face had a little ride tonight. I haven’t rode in months. I suppose I don’t feel that confident anymore. Its the thought of falling off and damaging my vulnerable body. I must be strong and not let EDS control me whilst being mindful. How do I balance it all? #EDS #hypermobilitysyndrome #horse #cobx #skewbald #beconfident
Have you ever wondered why your pain increases right before a storm? ☔️ It’s because of barometric pressure! Did you know that there is always pressure in the atmosphere, and when it rains the pressure drops? This can cause the tissues in our bodies to swell, and add pressure to our already pain-filled joints 💦 Comment below and tell me how you deal with joint pain during storms ⬇️ • • • #ehlersdanlossyndrome #ehlersdanlos #chronicillness #rain #spoonie #dysautonomia #ehlers #chronicpain #invisibleillness #eds #zebrastrong #chronicallyill #butyoudontlooksick #spoonielife #zebra #heds #gastroparesis #disability #chronicillnesswarrior #spooniestrong #spoonies #hypermobility #disabled #chronicillnessblogger #chronicillnessblog #chronicillnessbloggers #chronicinsta #instachronic
Today was grooming day for this fluffer! She is super soft and smells so good, I wish everyone could cuddle her right now! 💕🐩
Based on a recommendation from @giraffeloverjen , we picked up the @bestshotpet ultra vitalizing mist! We are IN LOVE with this product, it detangles, prevents matts, makes Quincy super soft, and smells AMAZING. It is definitely a holy grail product for us! We picked ours up at @ryanspetsupplies
✨This is my lovely, amazing, wonderful, badass, and resilient momma of mine. I swear her heart is made of gold and her unconditional love seriously keeps me going. She is constantly advocating for me and takes lots of time away from her busy schedule to be there for me, even when I’m throwing a pity party, she’s there. I couldn’t manage this journey without her constant love and support. Even though I’m sick, at least it gives us a reason to hang out together more often. Today she took me to meet my new cardiologist this morning. He was really nice, took his time, and was very thoughtful and thorough. He decided I need thigh compression stockings instead of knee high and he’s increasing my saline infusions to 1.5 liters twice a week. I will most likely be getting a port for that. He’s also tapering me off of Amitriptiline because apparently that makes Pots even worse. (I didn’t know that!) Steps forward we’re made today and I’m happy about it. My mom is my superhero, and she can talk about all the happy things, offering to get me whatever I need as I cry in her passenger seat in her car. I know it’s hard for her too, but I seriously just love how comforting it is to have my mom in my life. I’m forever grateful for her. Who else couldn’t do it without their momma? 🙋🏻‍♀️ @mollysbooks1 I love you so much! 💘💘💘 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #chronicillness #chronicpain #raredisease #disabledandcute #cripplepunk #eds #heds #hypermobileeds #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #pots #IBD #IBS #dysautonomia #hypotension #syncope #fainting #mcas #mcad #mastcell #mastcellactivationdisorder #mastcellactivationsyndrome #spoonie #spooniewarrior #zebra #zebrastrong #bendyaf #darkcomedy
My day yesterday consisted of a quick drive to Memphis and back, a (what I feel) wasted Doctor appointment, and good times with my mom at the International Fresh Market! I went to Memphis hoping I’d get some answers but sadly left with another referral (but the goals of getting an official #EDS diagnosis). The ups and downs physically caused my Orthostatic Intolerance to become all too real, so my feet had to go up and my head down to control my BP fluctuations! What do you do to help with #orthostatichypotension ? Read my blog post to see more about my #monday . Link in bio.

Migraine wins this round, spent a couple hours at urgent care with a EPIC migraine. I got a whole bunch of iv medications and fluid plus a shot of another pain killer AND got sent home with another strong pain killer and strict rules to rest and not go to work for the next 2 days.

Salad made of arugula with tomato, mango, red onion, tomato, fenugreek sprouts and sunflower microgreens with a mango-zucchini dressing. I sprinkled my salad with some sea salt and chiliflakes. I don't do well when I'm completely salt free and I especially like it on tomatoes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dressing is: half a peeled zucchini, a mango, garlic cloves and 3 tbs of hemp hearts. Put everything in the blender and blend untill smooth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I can't stand for that long so I use a chair in my kitchen. But honestly eating raw makes things easier. It's just chop chop, then blend a dressing and there you have it. Also do not have that many dishes and no greasy pans to scrub. Your kitchen stays clean and your gas/ electric bill stays low. Was just thinking about some of the positive things about raw today, other than the obvious heakth benefits.😋🌱 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #medicalmedium #rawvegan #plantpower #rawvegansofig #fullyraw #healyourself #healyourgut #healingjourney #fullyraw #salad #ilovesalad #vegan #eattherainbow #sprouts #microgreens #sprouting #livingfood #eatrealfood #livingfoods #eattherainbow #healingjourney #whatrawveganseat #healthyfoodshare #highcarblowfat #highcarblowfatvegan #highcarblowfatrawvegan #medicalmediumprotocol #medicalmediumcleanse #fruitfear #medicalmediumtribe #mangodressing #edrecovery #eds

I had a three hour genetics appt today followed by an hour of testing. They took 17 tubes of blood. They took 16 from my right arm then took it out and put the bandaid on and the one lady was like oh no, We printed the label wrong. It was a special one to look at a chromosome I guess. So then they poked my other arm 😣. I've never had that many tubes taken. They offered me juice in hopes it would help me not faint. On top of that they just called and said they messed up one of my vials so I need to come back and get it redrawn. Ugh... Anyway, Then I had a full body xray which took about 30 min. My geneticist is very good and helpful. I am already in PT and I go to the pain clinic. Today she refered me to three doctors that all specialze in genetic disorders. I am going to see an opthalmologist, cardiologist for pots and a repeat echo BC its been 2 years since my last. She also referred me to a physical rehab center. In the meantime I have to do a DEXA scan as well as another ultrasound. She asked me if I wanted to see an adolescent medicine doctor. I didn't know what to say because I don't understand what that is. She gave me thier number just in case. Have any of you ever been to one. Is it helpful and what do they do? #chronicallyill #chroniccommunity #ehlersdanlossyndrome #pots #dexa #xray #bloodwork #genetics #eds #spoonie #medicalzebra #dysautonomia #butyoudontlooksick #invisibleillness #smoothie #greensmoothie #healthy #pulp

⚕Medical Update ⚕ I spent 5 days in the hospital again for my #spinalCSFleak . Literally 1 day before I was in the hospital, I was feeling better and was able to do an awesome photoshoot in Burbank for @themightysite. I was able to drive there and had almost 5 hours of upright time that day. --- The next day, I drove to my #painmanagement appointment at @cedarssinai and about half way there, I felt my low pressure headache come back. By the time I arrived at my appt, my heart rate was 124bpm at rest, and I started showing some of the #dysautonomia signs (tremors/involuntary movements, severe brain fog, sweating) that are caused by my brainstem getting compressed when my CSF pressure drops. --- This time, it happened so fast that the blood vessels in my right eye burst because they didn't have time to adjust to the pressure change (2nd pic). -- While I was in the hospital, I had another #ketamine infusion and made friends with one of the nurses after we discovered that we went to the same concert in December (#trancefamily 💜). -- My amazing hubby stayed with me day and night to help take care of me. Before my procedure we even got to have a coffee date outside in the plaza! 💜☕💏 #besthusbandever 😍 -- While they did the 7th blood patch to try to stop the CSF leak, my doctor accidentally went too far with the needle 💉 and made another hole in my dura (the membrane that holds the spinal fluid). I lost even more CSF as a result and they had to inject over 30 cc of blood to try to stop that new leak. The #headache from this was super intense, so they did #acupuncture to relieve some of the pain the next day. -- I also got to meet with the surgeon, who said that if this patch doesn't hold as long as the last one (29 glorious days), then we will need to do #spinesurgery again. I'm relieved to have a gameplan in place and I am happy to be home and recovering again. 💜🏡💜
Gluten Free Chicken Empanadas! Thank you God! As a Latina I was missing my fried pies! Not the healthiest thing but we can have guilty pleasure days! When I’m feeling kind of bored or like my mind wants to be in overthinking mode, if I have enough energy I will go to my kitchen and re-direct those thoughts and try to do something creative that requires me to think in other thing that can make me or my family happy. My daughter helped me with them so she got to learned the process. There is always room to learn from everything. #dysautonomia #pots #potsie #autonomicdysfunction #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #EDS #ehlersdanlossyndrome #hEDS #hypermobility #mastcellactivationsyndrome #mcas #ibs #migraines #vestibularmigraines #intractablemigraine #basilarmigraines #chronicmigraine #chronicfatiguesyndrome #cfs #anxiety #spoonie #chronicpain #chronicillness #invisibleillness #chronicwarriors #glutenfree #homeschoolmom

I wish this little guy could live in my garden and be this size forever! 🐷 But this photo was taken back in May and it’s not happened... ⁣ ⁣ Being around animals can be really therapeutic. Just look 😍. Sadly I don’t have a pig 😟 but I’m so lucky to have my dogs at home - they make me so happy with their cute little fluffy faces. ⁣ ⁣ The calming effects that animals have on humans is well recognised. As part of my university’s “Stress Less” week around exam time, they had a puppy / dog room 🐶. Yes, really! This would take place on one of the days leading to up exam time, in January and in May 📚. Puppies and ex-guide dogs were brought onto campus simply to play with and be stroked by the stressed out university students! It was amazing and made me feel so much more at home. Does / did your university do anything like this? & which animals help you to de-stress the most? 🐶🐱🐰🐷🐴⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #stressless #animaltherapy #studentlife #unistress #chronicillness #chronicfatigue #pots #disabledstudents #potsie #mastcellactivationdisorder #eds #hypermobilitysyndrome #ibs #dysautonomia #spoonieuniversity #spoonieselfcare #therapydogs #guidedogsuk #disabilityawareness #dogtherapy #farmtherapy #piglet #pigletsofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #destress #calmingeffect #cuteanimal #puppytherapy #examstress #examstressrelief
