Tonight my 7 year old granddaughter 👧 sent me home with this love gift 💓 because she knew I wasn't feeling well 😢. She packed up her favorite Shopkin toys 💓 and put them in her special butterfly purse 💓 and told me to take them home with me 💓. She said I could take them out and look at them and remember that she gave them to me 💓 (just don't rip the packaging, she added 😊). My little granddaughter showed more EMPATHY to me than the rest of my family put together. I will NEVER understand that part about my family. THANK GOD for the pure 💝💝💙💝💙 of my grandchildren 👧👧👦👧🚼. They are my strength & my joy. CHERISH the children, because their hearts are the MOST perfect example of LOVE on this planet. 💜🌎🙏💜 #fibromyalgia #fibrowarrior #fibroeverysingleday #fibro #invisibleillness #fibromyalgiaawareness #grandchildren #myjoy #lovemygranddaughter #bigheart #kindness #empathy #family #children #loveheals #loveiskind #loveistheanswer #faith #Godcaresforme #lifelessons #lovematters #leadwithlove
Boa noite meus amores! É muito difícil manter o otimismo em algumas situações, mas sempre tento. É incrivel como quase todos os dias eu estou mal, cada dia parece que vem um problema diferente, somado com os antigos ainda. É enlouquecedor! Ontem me senti mal do estômago, enjoada, cólica, com a vista ruim (por conta dos exercícios nos olhos na 5a) e ainda me veio uma alergia nos braços que nem sei como surgiram. Hoje continuo igual, só que pior... estômago péssimo, cabeça doendo e todos os sintomas de ontem. Nisso, não consegui estudar, nem fazer os exercícios físicos nem nada! Desanimador, estou bem triste, mas estou esperançosa de que amanhecerei melhor amanhã! 🙏🏼 #klfibromialgia #fibromyalgia #fibromialgia #fibro #forcafibromialgicas #dorcronica #foco #força #fé #saúde #saude #viverbem #positividade #semprenaluta #relax #nostress #good #life #vida #paz #peace #feliz #enjoy #goodthings #diasmelhores #mal #crise #doente #dodoi #dor
From Adrianna Spain 💙 "Seriously. Didn’t know I could love my hair anymore! Comment below using a gif of your reaction to a great hair day 👇🏼🤩 In the meantime... I’ve got a story. Ya see, I used to despise my hair. Not just hate. Full. On. Loathe. I straightened it daily, sometimes 2-3x a day. I literally carried my straightener around with me. In fact, one year for Christmas I begged my dad for a flat iron. I found it on E-bay & bid on it and purchased it for $80. That was my ONLY Christmas present that year but I didn’t care because I wanted my hair straight. I dreaded going to get a haircut because I didn’t want to leave with my hair curly, but I knew the struggle bus that my hairstylist had to go through to blow dry + straighten it for me. I hated sitting there for what seemed like hours and I know she put in that work! She would always encourage me to go natural and embrace what The Good Lord gave me. And still, I fought. I even would attempt to force my hair straight in hair school!  Curly hair just wasn’t for me. My hair would never do what I wanted it to.. Frizz. Tangles. Troll hair. Poofy. Dry. Stick my finger in a light socket. Dull. Zero shine. Damaged. Over processed. Wouldn’t grow. .... until I was forced to go natural. Fried. My. Hair. Completely. I had cotton ball hair. Wet straw. Devastated. No more heat unless I wanted to go bald! I felt so ugly. I was officially completely uncomfortable in my own skin and with this mop on my head, forget it. Take down all the mirrors! Oh, but I worked in front of one EVERY DAY. 🤦🏼‍♀️ How on Gods green earth was I going to help people love their hair when I hated my own?! So, the search began. I needed hair help. This hairstylist needed some serious answers and quick.  I bought every hair product I could get my hands on. Weekly I was in the supply store restocking and trying more. Shampoos, conditioners, styling agents, creams, hair butters, oils, masques, gels, sprays. 🤭 Years passed by with my literal gamble on what to use! I had a shampoo from here, a conditioner from another line, styling agents from every direction. Then I found it. Something that worked. And its continued to work! What the what?
Achievement of the week: I went to Ikea and got some things to help make my craft space more functional. Another step closer to my goal.

These two pages make me think of my best friend more than anything. He's never gotten mad at me for the times I've broken. He's been there for me even when we haven't talked in forever. I don't know where I'd be without him. He's truly my best friend. ❤ . . . . . #chronicpain #chronicillness #invisibleillness #spoonie #fibromyalgia #anxiety #backpain #chronicfatigue #pain #spoonielife #health #depression #mentalhealth #instagood   #disability   #fatigue #painpillsplease #painpill #PTSD #bestfriend
Alone in her fear, knowing only others near, A new adventure, but now without a tear. Self-love is foreign but becoming clear, that the path to happiness requires a stop here. Buckle in baby girl, your time is here, for with self-love, the truth you seek will appear. Love yourself deep without fear, Allow only positive thoughts in your ear, Soon out of self-love: abundance, happiness and freedom will appear! ~Candice Frazier “No fear-self love pioneer” #selflovetothefullest #selflove #lovecoach #transformyourlife #mindset #positivethinking #intuitivecoach #intuitiveempath #silverliningseeker #healthcoach #lifecoach #fitwithfibromyalgia #fitwithautoimmuneillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #hashimotos #fibromyalgia #celiac #fitwithheartdisease #myocardialbridging

Last night a migraine came and got all up in my head. So i spent the tail end of my day curled up with my head by her lap getting head pats. I don't like migraines. But i do love her. Taken by the third part of my heart and our little girl gang @kayleighscott_photo.

Okay so today’s been shit. I’ve had self harm urges, suicidal thoughts and done nothing. It was raining so I couldn’t do anything. My best friend was on a survival trip so I had no one to talk to and it’s 3am in the morning and everything got too much I need to let my feelings go. Honestly don’t know how safe I’m going to stay tonight. Knowing me it’ll probably be a sleepless night. Positives are that I get a lay in tomorrow and it’s not a school night, I get to have a few weeks away from my nan which should be less stressful and my dad and I can actually spend some time sat together. Have felt worse though to be honest. • • • • • #depression #anxiety #sad #mentalhealth #love #suicide #l #f #broken #depressed #suicidal #sadness #depressionquotes #pain #dark #lonely #mood #explore #ptsd #triggerwarning #music #mentalillness #anorexia #die #quotes #bipolar #tumblr #mentalhealthawareness #fibromyalgia #bhfyp

Does anyone else’s hands get real shaky at the end of the day, kinda like they wanna stop working all together?!?!?!? #fibromyalgiaawareness #fibromyalgia #pain
Today has been extremely difficult for me not feeling well and handing very cranky littles. However the highlight of my day has been seeing my oldest son, Arthur @arthur_frey54 , who just turned 16, get ready for his sophomore homecoming. This handsome devil has been doing school six hours a day THEN working six hours at night AND getting his school work done. He even worked today before the dance. He was so happy and excited and looking forward to this night. I hope he has a blast making memories and laughing and living it up! And my God, when did he get so tall🤔🤦🏻‍♀️😂G’nite Spoonies! I hope something beautiful happened in your life today! I was fortunate to have this happen in mine❤️xoxo😘 #goodnight #myson #homecoming #family #depression #anxiety #ptsd #spoonieproblems #spoonielife #abuse #survivor #chronicpain #invisibleillness #autoimmunedisease #butyoudontlooksick #spoonie #spoonies #spoonies_united #lupus #fibromyalgia #raynauds #sjogrenssyndrome #arthritis #spinalstenosis #facetarthritis #osteoarthritis #degenerativediscdisease
Amazing pot roast and some zucchini fries for dinner.

Between the pain and fatigue this has been me the past couple weeks! It needs to let up...I’m going crazy! #necrotizingpancreatitis #type1diabetes #autoimmunedisease #chronicillnesses #chronicpain #RA #fibromyalgia #nevergiveup #onedayatatime #fighter
🎉 Happy 4 Month Explant-versary to me! Since having my breast implants removed on May 22, I’ve had many women ask me, “Weren’t you afraid of being disfigured and flat chested?” 😕 . . In short, absolutely ...YES! But what image did I fear, MORE?! The IMAGE of continued: . -chronic fatigue -pain in my joints like an old woman -periods every 21 days -ruined gut health that was causing me hundreds of food sensitivities -my red eyes and thinning hair -having my face look red, aged and puffy -severe brain fog, poor cognition & memory -continued weight gain And lastly, -swollen and painful lymph nodes in my armpits. 😳 . . You mean, I could possibly have ALL my health and happiness back IF I’m willing to have SMALL BREASTS?!! . . Sign me up. . . I think when we get so fed up with being sick and tired, feeling like our body is betraying us and we even start to think we are crazy, having small breasts matters much much less. . . Yes- it’s normal to be afraid youll look unattractive and flat. But for me, I feared MORE not knowing how much more physical deterioration I could handle from the toxins. . What’s my cup size now? It’s HAPPY! Nearly ALL of my symptoms have disappeared since removing my inflammation triggering and immune heightening breast implants. .

But it’s usually worth it. Here’s to all my #chronicillnesswarriors who are enjoying game day. #wareagle #fibromyalgia
I hate that so many people have fibromyalgia but at the same time I’m glad I know that atleast someone understands the way I feel because sometimes it feels like no one does or ever will! #fibromyalgiaawareness #fibromyalgia #pain
Just waiting for this flare to pass . 😔 I’ve been getting warning signs from my body that this has been coming . I’ve learned that I get ulcers in my mouth, dry tight skin, and the most annoying very severe acne breakouts(which I never dealt with before I got sick) on my face and chin. There’s also other warning signs I’ve kept track of,but I can’t even think of them right now I’m so tired. It’s really hard mentally to keep a good mindset when your stuck in bed .Thankfully my nurse was able to stop by today and set up an infusion for me so hopefully better days will come soon. 🤞🏻🙃 Happy First day of Fall peeps! 🍁🍂🍁Hopefully this season treats us better than summer.
Me trying to remember if I took all my medication already or if I need to take my last one of the day.... seriously happens all day long! #fibromyalgiaawareness #fibromyalgia #fibrofog
I’m talking this happens like 1 or 2 times a week lol #fibromyalgiaawareness #fibromyalgia #fibrofog
People think "running out of spoons" just means you are tired but it is so much more. Today I went to a festival with my daughter and we weren't there but maybe an hour. By the time I got home I was out of spoons. For me that is more than just tired. My body is so extremely fatigued it begins to cramp up and give out. I have to lay in bed and ride it out until my body settles down some. I usually end up throwing up from the pain and if I'm lucky I can sleep a little to recharge my body. It will take a day or two to recover when I let it get this bad. Why do it then? Today I made a memory with my daughter. We laughed, ate, and bought momentos of the festival we went to. That is worth it to me. I usually know the cost my body will pay when I try to do normal things but I accept the cost. Next time someone with a chronic illness is tired just know it's more than what a nap could ever cure. #Spoonies #chronicillness #nospoons #spooniewarrior #lupus #fibromyalgia #allodynia #osteoarthritis #asthma #brokenbody
Today, I drove 4.5 hours from Red River, NM (my new home) to Denver. Then caught a flight from Denver to Dallas for the @childishgambino concert tomorrow night and to celebrate my birthday weekend with my besties @nataliebasss and @gemixlifestyle. • Anyone who knows me knows my love for music but due to my health, I haven’t been able to attend a single concert in over 5 years. But there was absolutely nothing that was going to stop me from seeing my favorite artist on his last tour before retiring, not even flaring up in the Denver airport and nearly missing my flight. • As a chronically ill patient, I’ve missed out on quite a bit of things over the years. Not being able to attend concerts, whether I was standing in the crowd or sitting backstage, was a huge blow to my social and professional life and what I loved most. I still struggle everyday trying to make peace with my health and what it means for my future. But at some point, I realized that I couldn’t let my health control every aspect of my life. Yes, I will more than likely flare up and yes, my body and brain are going to hate it. But that’s no reason to stop living my life and enjoying the things I love most. • While I’m crazy worried about how my brain and body will react, I’m so thankful for my best friends who are nothing but understanding, patient and supportive regarding me and my health. Especially when I’m flaring up worst than ever. • I’ve never looked forward to a concert as much as I am right now, and I’m so excited to spend my birthday with the ones I love most (including Donald Glover).

I was doing some candlesticks (at least that’s what I know them as), and Jeff took some pictures from various angles while I held it at the top... and then I lost my balance. No captured?

Smoking a bowl before we leave to pick up Arria's friend. How is everyone's weekend going?! Its been a good weekend so far for the most part! I just cant seem to get my body of out of mood funk. I still laugh and have fun, but my body is not in the best mood. Hasn't been for a few days. Oh well!!! Breathe in!!

Idk what else to do for myself, or what patterns my symptoms are coming in, if any. They literally come without warning. So, I’m keeping a pain journal starting today. Hopefully this tool can make some sense of all this. #undiagnosed #multiplesclerosis #fibromyalgia #depression #anxiety
Just got back from the ER because we thought my kidney stones were back.. I can’t stand the fact that even ER doctors will say “ well.. You’re too young to be exposed to radiation “ but if someone were to be wrong and they missed it and I died, it could’ve been prevented! #PainWarriorsUnite #chronicillness #invisibleillness #spoonie #multiplesclerosis #fibromyalgia #amplifiedmusculoskeletalpainsyndrome #complexregionalpainsyndrome #chronicpain #painwarrior #insomnia #chronicpainwarrior #gastroparesis #morethan4 #nationalpriority #teenswithms #pediatricms #kidsgetMStoo
It’s been a long day: • Grocery shopping for the full week • Cleaning the bathroom including deep cleaning the bathtub • Vacuuming the apartment and cleaning the entryway • Cleaning the stove • 2 full loads of laundry • Realizing the shower liner was starting to get gross and having to go BACK out for a new one • Coming back to cooking dinner and cleaning the kitchen during and after eating • Shower including shaving and washing my hair . For some, it may seem like this is a regular Saturday or that it wouldn’t wipe you out as much. I’ve learned to budget my energy as much as possible based on my own body and illnesses (and from some help from the wonderful @mysickfitlife ) 💞). . As soon as I was done with that whole list, I had to take my pain meds and use my heated blanket to soothe my arthritis pain 😓 as I write this post, I’m still under the blanket and having a difficult time typing this out with my arthritis-riddled fingers. I want everyone to know that I love seeing all of the comments, tags, and messages from all of you 💖 and just because I don’t respond right away, doesn’t mean I don’t care or don’t appreciate your kind words. It simply means I’m wiped out for the day, or just that period of time, and can’t respond at that moment. I hope you all understand and have a great rest of your weekend 💗
well the verdict is in, the reason I’ve been having such intense pain in my right knee (as well as the nearly constant popping-and-locking) and an extremely weak leg altogether as a result of that, is because at some point in the last year, I completely tore my ACL and one meniscus. And I’ve been walking around like this for almost a year. So that was pretty surprising, since they were only looking for a torn meniscus. Any kind of repair surgery would be pretty much pointless for someone like me who has EDS, so I’m restarting physical therapy in the hopes of not repairing my ACL but getting the muscles in and around my knee strong enough so that I don’t need an ACL. I’m postponing my upcoming surgery until January, when I’ll hopefully be a little bit stronger. we’ll see! the video at the end is lulu before the appointment for the MRI results when I brought out her vest 😂 she is seriously the love of my life 💖
Ive had tingling and numbness in my hands and feet the past 24 hrs. This usually happens on and off for me. I slept for 3 hrs tonight and it actually woke me up. My left side seems to be worse that my right for some reason. I really want to know wtf is going on. This is really uncomfortable. #undiagnosed #fibromyalgia #multiplesclerosis #numbness
