RIP my first water pipe 😭
Struggling with my mental health today. I feel angry and anxious and like something isn’t right. I don’t know if it’s a side effect of the steroid injection I had, of if I’m just a bit off balance at the moment (literally and figuratively) but I don’t feel right. I can’t put my finger on it 🤦🏻‍♀️
UPDATE: It's been a while since I posted anything about my health. Thank you for those who have reached out! I've been enjoying a nice, long break from social media, but I've been seeing new doctors and doing some new treatments that I'm excited about, but first the not-so-good news. 🙄 • Since before Christmas, I've been doing a detox program with (what I thought) was a trusted Nutritionist. We had to gone to him because we thought he was a physician-based physical therapist for my new leg pain, but decided to stick with it anyway once we found out he was just a Nutritionist. But then, at my last appt with him, I realized that he was not going to be a helpful addition to my health journey. If you'd like to read more about that, I ranted on Twitter about it (😂) -- it does shed light on some of the "doctors" that us chronically ill folk come across every now and then (link attached). • However, the GOOD news is that I have a new diagnosis!! I was diagnosed with Lupus a little over a week ago, and we are actually really happy with this diagnosis. It's a chronic autoimmune condition, where your immune system attacks itself, that affects every part of your body and can go into remission once you find your unique treatment plan through trial-and-error. It explains a lot of my symptoms and some that I didn't even know WERE symptoms. • But let me mention, this does NOT explain my migraine(s). This is a separate diagnosis that explains an overwhelming amount of other symptoms that I DO have. So this is a huge blessing, and just another piece of the puzzle that's been discovered. 🙏🏼 • Here's to hoping the rest will come along soon! Thank you for all the prayers! 💕 #chronicpainwarrior https://twitter.com/ash_rog21/status/1085380414078939137?s=19

Brain Fog. If u have been paying attention to the rise is stories from chronically ill peeps you likely have come across the phrase "brain fog" . Well if have ever wondered what that is like or if u believe it's not really that interfering in a person's life. Here is a little expo from my day to help clear the fog away (pun intended). . Yesterday when I went to have a shower. I couldn't change the water from the tap faucet to the shower head.....because my brain couldn't find the pathways. Nor get my body to respond to them...I knew I wanted the shower on...i had the taps running...i had the shower head... And then I just stared at the whole thing and was lost. Like I had never seen these thing before and had no idea what to do next. . I actually had to get someone else from the other room to come and turn the shower on for me. . So the next time someone with an illness tells you that brain fog is inhibiting part of their life or day. Please remember that it is not just a casual remark about how tired we are. Our brains are actually hella confused and at points of our functioning. And can misfire completly, blocking actions for us to accomplish tasks. they can be random like this story or they can be consistent like not being able to say words or make clear thoughts. . . . #criplife #brainfog #fibro #m .e. #eds #lyme #braininjury

Another round of Botox in the books. I still can’t believe how much this has helped me. I do have headaches sometimes, and more the last week or two before my next dose, but it has still be a huge change in my quality of life. I agreed with my doctor and husband to keep a headache diary again for the next three months. There are other monthly injections that are available now that are used in conjunction with (or instead of) botox. We’ll see how the next few months go and decide then!

Day 16 of #JanuaryChronicIllnessPhotoChallenge Inner child Gonna keep this one short as I've told you about my cat and duck passions on many posts already! Ducks, cats and all animals in general (especially the babies) bring out my inner child and just make me so happy. One of the thing that makes me laugh the most is a duck quacking. I don't know why, I think it's because it sounds like they're laughing too! Strangely I couldn't find one of my many duck quacking videos so I've gone for this video today as the duck just looks so genuinely happy but slightly sassy! 😂😂 Sorry to the original poster. This was sent to me via WhatsApp so I have no original credit.

Winter depression has hit. I am feeling the financial struggle, the cooped-up anxiety, the overall annoyance at everyone and everything. Also as a transitional phase things feel like they are going painfully slow. Guess I will keep breathing through each day that feels exactly like the day before and the day before that and the day before that even though I know tomorrow will feel the same.. #chronicpain #chronicillness #fibromyalgia #fibro #ocularmigraines #chronicheadaches #interstitialcystitis #ibs #pmdd #hormoneimbalance #invisibleillness #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniefamily #spooniecommunity #anxiety #gad #generalizedanxietydisorder #ptsd #depression #insomnia #insomniac #existentialism #existentialist #highlysensitiveperson #hsp #highlysensitive #empath #empathetic #introvert

I’ve been so lucky recently, to be more able to ‘life’ more active, less pain, no spasms for about 3 months and then Fibro sees me ‘lifeing’ making plans, enjoying myself and thinks “erm, that’s quite enough of that missy” and hands me a red card for daring to attempt to defy it!! And so the excruciating pain returns, hips and knees on fire, neck and shoulders in spasm, can’t sit it hurts, can’t stand it hurts, can’t walk.......etc etc! It’s a temporary win for that bastard Fibro, but my fight and resolve is stronger than its ever been!! Here’s to the next victory being mine 🙏🏻👏🏻💞 #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillnessawareness #fibro #fibromyalgia #pain #chronicfatigue #CFS #fibrowarrior
MOOD. So much going on right now that I want to fight for. I definitely am not up for physically showing up for rallies and marches, but I feel like I’ve been slacking on my online activism too. I’ll repost in my stories, but you wouldn’t believe how many images currently sit in my repost app & screenshot album. I’ve just been so busy that I don’t have the spoons (mostly mentally) to give the things I want to say/do the energy and attention they deserve and so then I end up doing them bc I hate doing things half-assed, or should I say half-spooned? Does anyone else struggle with this? #Spoonie #SpoonieSupport #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #ChronicFatigue #ChronicNausea #InvisibleIllness #AutoImmuneDisease #Endo #Endometriosis #EndoWarrior #EndoSisters #FightLikeAGirl #Arthritis #POTS #Potsie #CFS #ME #IBS #IBD #Fibro #Lyme #Sjogrens #EDS #ChronicMigraine #MuteRKelly #BelieveSurvivors #governmentshutdown #onlineactivism
Imagine if someone took a hot iron rod and stuck it in your back. That’s what it feels like to have fibromyalgia 😩. The pain is widespread along different muscles and joints. Patients often complain of being tired all the time even though they get their 8 hours of sleep. Some people also have this nagging headache. Their condition may be accompanied with anxiety, depression or stomach cramps. If you have any of these symptoms or know someone that does, get them to a doctor ASAP 👨‍⚕️. . . Tag a friend that needs to hear this👌 . . . .

So I decided to treat myself to a #facemask and a hair mask. I've felt quite unwell the last week or so as in I had a tooth abscess crippling abdominal pain and the usual muscle #fibro pain. It's draining and exhausting and no amount of make up or cover can hide my dark circles. Stopped eating too as it gives me too much stomach pain. How do you guys manage these flares? I struggle to at the moment. Anyway had a lovely bubble bath and I feel nice and fresh which always helps. I have some new books to read before I go to sleep #cps #crps #cfs #gastroparesis #gastritis #fibrowarrior #fibromyalgia #ddd #bps #blind #chronicillness #butyoudontlooksick #invisableillness #bathtime #metime #selfie

We have no control over the bad things that have happened to us in the past. The things that have caused trauma and PTSD. We can't control what others do to us or the illness we get as a result. We can however control our response to it. . Not everyone has to be an activist or an extrovert but I can tell you from my experience, turning my abuse that is still causing me emotional turmoil, into something positive with this page and the work that I'm doing fills my heart with pride, shows me how strong I am. . We can't control what people have done to us but we can chose to fight against the fall out. The reminents of the harm they have caused. We can't fight it all. I myself have been struggling with feeling love and affection for over six months now. Going from someone who wore their heart on their sleeve and was a hugger to not even wanting to be touched you could say it's winning... . Its not though. Every day I have hope the real me will return. Every day I do something towards finding my way back to my emotions. I have not resigned nor given up. They took my innocence but will not take the loves of my life. They will not take the life I've built for myself and they will not stop me from breaking the stigma around mental illness and childhood sexual abuse. . That's not to say we can't cry or retreat to our safe places to protect ourselves. This does not make you weak, it's self preservation, something you've become adept at because of what you've been through. . If you're like me and are battling every day and are tired, what I always tell myself is that everything passes. No matter how long you've been like this, it will pass. More than that hope is what keeps me alive. Every day is a fight but a fight we choose because it means we have not been victim to our circumstances but been transformed by them. Just getting up and making it through the day is not letting them win. We're warriors 🦋💛 . [This was written two days ago. I've actually got chatting to my old therapist since and she's expediated the other counselling place that I applied to, I'm getting help after these many months in the dark, don't give up guys]
The chronic and mental illness community never fail to amaze and humble me. You are all beautiful, strong and completely amazing individuals. Thank you for being so understanding and brave, so kind and full of empathy. When you know, you know and being able to share those highs and lows, without judgement or fear of rejection is what keeps me fighting on the days when I just want to bury my head under the duvet. So much love to you all 💞💞 #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillnessawareness #fibro #fibromyalgia #pain #chronicfatigue #CFS #fibrowarrior #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #anxiety #depression #strongertogether #endthestigma
Sometimes in the morning, after my alarm goes off at 8am for my first injection of the day, I don't do it. Sometimes I lay there with my hands interlaced over my eyes, crying and fighting with my Self about why I have to get out of bed and do a needle. These days are the ones when every number makes me feel guilty, no matter what it is. These are the days when I don't want to eat anything, because I don't want to deal with the calculations and the consequences of carbohydrates. These are the days when I am most down, most grief-stricken, most hard on my body, and I find it hard to move, let alone feel joy to get out of bed. The days where I want to scream and cry and kick away everything close to me, because it just isn't fucking fair. These are the days when I need to be more kind, more forgiving, more loving, more patient and accepting. The days when I have to practice what I preach, to test my knowledge of everything I am learning about love. Be kind. Speak from love. You never know what the soul next to you has weighing on them. #t1dlookslikeme #diabetes #fibro #mentalhealth #snailspace #love #healing #fuck #patience
Over the last few days, my pain levels have been high so rest has been important. I have been struggling to get through the day without having a nap.

Yes, you can 👍🏻 #Repost @thisthingtheycallrecovery with @download_repost ・・・ I think often people struggle to communicate about chronic illness because they feel the need to put a positive spin on it all the time. And sometimes that’s hard. You can’t say get well soon, so what can you say? How about something that feels validating, and honest. ‘I’m sorry things are crap right now, I’m here for you’. We don’t expect you to fix it, or spin a shitty situation into some romanticised self-affirming life lesson. Sometimes we just want someone to agree with us, that actually, it’s a bit shit. Chronic illness can be a bit shit, surprisingly enough. We’re only a week into 2019 and I’ve already cried about my ME 3 times 👍🏼 I know advice normally comes from a good place, and you just want to help. But as a general rule I’d say only give advice if someone is specifically asking for it. It might just be one comment, but there are lots of people also leaving ‘just one comment’, and it mounts up. If you want to know more about unsolicited advice @natashalipman does some really good posts about it. Let’s just all be nice to each other shall we? (Also, yes, I see the irony of giving advice on giving advice...) #cfs #mecfs #fibro #chronicillness #chronicpain #spoonie #chronicfatigue #spoonielife #endo #spoonieproblems #invisibleillness #graphicdesign #typography #handlettering #themighty #lyme #mentalhealth #butyoudontlooksick

Date day was an excuse to debut my new clothes and a fresh face of make up for the first time in a while. Using a tinted moisturiser rather than putting a full load of make up on my face daily, and my skin is grateful. As are my arms, as a fibro flare is kicking my butt and every joint, but I am determined to power through and not let it stop me from going out or trying to live a full life. Every day is a struggle, but every day I make it through. #MakeUp #makeupartist #selftaught #SelfTeaching #Happy #Fibro #fibromyalgia #flareup #chronicillness

👦🏻👩🏼: Exploring the salt-mines in Peru. The ancient salt pans are dug into the mountainside where thousands of shallow pools filled with salt water eventually evaporate and leave behind the crystallized salt. It’s a process that has been practiced for more than 500 years.
🔸 Hypoglycemia & Adrenal fatigue 🔸⠀ ⠀ During adrenal fatigue, when adrenal hormone levels are lower, it becomes harder to maintain blood sugar balance, especially in response to the increased demand from stress.⠀ ⠀ It has been known for almost a century that people who are chronically hypoglycemic are often also experiencing adrenal fatigue and that people going through adrenal fatigue almost always have some form of irregular blood sugar pattern. Hypoglycemia is the most common of these.⠀ ⠀ It means eating regular meals and not eating those sugary foods and caffeine that send blood glucose levels on a roller coaster ride and possibly worsen adrenal fatigue and hypoglycemia.⠀ ⠀ Hypoglycemia often has a food sensitivity or food allergy component. Consuming something that the body is sensitive or allergic to can set off a hypoglycemic reaction or make blood sugar levels more erratic.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #chronicpain #fibromyalgiasucks #fibro #adrenalfatigue #fibroid #fibromyalgiaisreal #fibromyalgiaproblems #chronicillnesswarrior #Hypoglycemia #chronic #fibromialgia #chronicillnesses #spoonielife #chronicillness #chronicfatigue #fibrowarrior #fibrofighter #chronicillnesslife #chronicpainwarrior #fibromyalgia #chroniclife #fibromyalgiafighter #fibromyalgiawarrior #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicallyill #fatigue #fibromyalgiaawareness #chronicillnessawareness #spoonie #adrenalfatigue
Today is going to feel like tommorow someday
Never really think of the positives of chronic illness but this is definitely one of them. Being ill taught me to love myself. I was always slim and a few years back put on quite a bit of weight which has fluctuated over the last few years. I’m not the biggest nor the smallest I’ve ever been but for the first time I actually love myself and don’t have issues with my body (you know other than the pain, aching, fatigue and million other symptoms). I don’t have the energy to shave every day or straighten my hair everyday or to stress about losing weight. It’s amazing to me that since I began loving myself and caring less about looking perfect, people keep mentioning weight. I’ve been asked too many times if I’m going to join people on their diets this year and to be honest it’s only now I realise how sad it was to feel like that. I’ve spent so many years of my life on diets and honestly this is the most free I’ve ever felt. For the first time I can appreciate what my body has got me through and I will not let anyone change that. Fibro gave me the opportunity to look at my body differently, caring less about what’s on the outside and more about how I look after myself and who I am on the inside 💜 #fibro #fibromyalgia #chronic #chronicillness #chronicpain #illness #spoonie #selflove #bodypositive #nomorediets

~ Fibromyalgia and Skiing ~ It’s tough doing something that others see as easy, fun or even normal. Sometimes it’s even tougher explaining why it’s tough. I went skiing last weekend and while I enjoyed myself (and am lucky to have a pro bf) I couldn’t help but find myself exhausted after the first slope, unreasonably stiff and achey for someone in their mid-twenties and altogether bothered at the thought of suffering a spasm while skiing or falling over. In fact, I did fall over. How do you deal with sports activities and fun days out without letting your fibromyalgia dictate your fun? Well, if you stick around and follow my blog (which might come out some time this year) I’ll try and help you or at least help you see that you’re not alone. . . . #skiing #fibromyalgia #howtoski #fibrowarrior #fibrofun #fibrofeels #snow #mountains #catalonia #catalunya #pyrenees #fibroonthemove #skii #skiing 🎿 #skiseason #mountain #fibrofighter #fibromialgia #greatpyrenees #bluesky #portdelcomte #montana #fibromyalgiawarrior #fibromyalgie #howtolivewithfibromyalgia #howtolivewithfibro #blog #fibroblogger #fibro #fibrofighter

I would like to be honest with you. I’m just not sure you’re ready for the truth. I’m not certain my story will sound plausible to you living in your healthy world. I fear being unbelievable, and, yet, at the same time I’m learning to not care as much what other people think.
