My #niece sent me this #picture all the way from #chicago and i felt all the #feels 💜💔😥💜💜💜 "I am running for Auntie Amber" I am choked up now posting this. She has seen me her whole life struggle with Lupus. I am a 25 year survivor and she just turned 25 January 1st 2019. She never made me feel like anything other than her auntie. She hung out with me and made me laugh and forget how miserable I was. She breathed life into me. I love you so much niecey and thank you! @tacodonutqueen #lupus #fibromyalgia #rheumatoidarthritis #osteoarthritis #interstitialcystitis #endometriosis #avascularnecrosis #systemiclupuserythematosus #jointreplacement #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #insomnia #restlessleg #migraine #glaucoma #raynauds #butterfly #lupusawareness #cushingsdisease #heartdisease #kidneydisease #liverdisease #raceforthecure #lungdisease #chronesdisease I appreciate your support, love, and feedback.

It’s been a little over a year since I stopped taking my arthritis medicine and started healing my gut. Embarking on a new path was scary, and it’s going better than I ever would have imagined. I’ve seen a reduction in acne and improved energy. I no longer have a chronic staph infection and the white patches on my back are gone. I can’t expect to undo decades of damage overnight. My progress has been slow and steady and I am thankful. I will keep nourishing myself. I will keep paying attention to the small changes. What health concern would you fix?
Here's a photo that will make people uncomfortable. My #interstitialcystitis people will understand. But I'm being open. Here's my life. Bagged catheters and the catheters that work best for my voiding is rigid and painful. This is my life for now. The pain is excruciating. It makes my day pretty much unbearable. But I press on...somehow... So let's kick this week's ass. And, I'm sorry for the tmi image. But it's important to #normalize #disabled bodies.
You know you’re on Whole 30 when... you have been craving a sweet potato with ghee and cinnamon all day. Sooo satisfying 🤤

Makes me feel good from the inside out ✨• What’s your go to easy, healthy, delicious feel good meal?

Didn’t get to spend as much time as I wanted with this handsome fella this weekend, but I’m incredibly grateful to have him in my life. I wouldn’t be near the horsewoman, or person, I am without him. Plus, he’s pretty cute!
Luke 18:27 Jesus replied, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.” I’m having a VERY high pain day so my healing miracle didn’t come today but my faith won’t waiver. I’ll keep standing in my faith and know that He is able. Never giving up!!! I won’t just sit on God’s promises but I’ll stand on them!!! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
“I don’t have time.” This is the most common thing I hear when talking to women about my coaching job. And while this may be true, I don’t have time either. I am a full time preschool teacher, finishing up my masters degree, newlywed, youth group volunteer, and the list goes on. My days start at 4AM and are lucky to end at 9PM. __________ One thing coaching has taught me is to be a better steward of my time. I used to be guilty of spending hours mindlessly scrolling through social media or watching pointless TV. Now I have to PRODUCTIVELY use ALL of my time if I want to get everything done. __________ My “ office” is everything from doctors office waiting rooms to our car on the way to Wichita. I use this time to check in with my team, my accountability group ladies, and respond to all the messages, which is such a better use of my time AND allows me to make a little extra money without taking time away from everything else I’ve got going on. __________ Next month I will be taking on 5 women to mentor and teach how I’ve been able to grow this business in the “cracks” of my day. If you have a heart for others, want to make some extra money from home {or anywhere}, and feel called to serve through faith and fitness, then I’d love to chat more with you. Tomorrow night my team and I will be holding a casual, no string attached meet and greet and I’d love to have you join us! You’ll also get a FREE week of the meal plans that help me save time, so what’s is there to loose?? Let me know below and I’ll reach out ASAP! 💞

I’m an over thinker sometimes & I need to know what’s happening/being requested of me, always find it hard to switch the brain off ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ #edstype3 #fibromyalgia #nervepain #subluxation #chronicpain #chronicillness #livingwithchronicillness #livingwithchronicpain #parentingwithchronicpain #painsomnia #interstitialcystitis #monthlies #allergicreaction #allergictoeverything #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #endthestigma #honest #letstalk #northeastbloggers #zebrastrong #rare #spoonie #spoonielife #lifeinmybed #howmanyspoonstouse #gofundme #cbdvape #cbdlife
Feeling angry tonight. Spent our Monday off with 3 dr appointments and a 6 hour Infusion and then have Friday off for 4 more. That’s 7 appointments this week while working a full time job. It’s exhausting. And my iv was infiltrated which stung and hurt so I had to take it out early and my home nurse had to make an extra trip to put a new one in today. And after an entire bag (6 hours later...) my blood pressure is still low and I still feel awful. So now I feel awful and angry. How can it be that low after an entire bag?!? That makes no sense. But I guess my body doesn’t like to follow rules of logic. I’m just over it rn. #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieproblems #chronicillness #chronicillnessessuck #chronicillnesswarrior #spoonielife #neurocardiogenicsyncope #dysautonomia #dysautonomiaawareness #wegotdys #diabetes #diabetessucks #familialhypercholesterolemia #interstitialcystitis #sjogrens #sjogrenswarrior #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #infusion #autoimmunedisease #salineinfusion #homehealthcare #butyoudontlooksick #freckledfighter
🥔🍎 🍛healing food can be good food!! I know I’ve posted something similar but the quinoa was prepared differently this time. This is my version of “stuffing” and it’s soooo good. • • • To make the stuffing: Finely dice one apple, two stalks of celery and half of an onion and sauté in olive oil Pour one and a half cups of quinoa into two cups of vegetable broth with a half cup of water and two bay leaves for flavor. (once the quinoa is cooked take out the bay leaves) Mix the veggies and quinoa together and season with cinnamon, sage, and salt. To give it that crispy stuffing texture toss it in the oven for 10-15 mins! I served mine with roasted potatoes and butternut squash (the sweet butternut squash complements the savory quinoa 🤤)
We all have so many challenges dealing with chronic illness and chronic pain. People tell us to stay strong, but the word "strength" loses meaning when we are sometimes too physically weak or sick to be strong. Sometimes we can't eat or even move. All of this takes an emotional and psychological toll, and then we feel mentally depleted as well. But that doesn't mean we get to give up. We continue the fight despite our bodies being constantly at war with us. Being in pain does not signal weakness. On the contrary, it shows just how strong AF we are being able to endure it day in and day out! And every day that passes, is a day where we faced our challenges and survived! Instead of giving up, let’s stand up to chronic illness and face our challenges together! #pots #mcas #eds #chronicillness #mecfs #gastroparesis #fibromyalgia #interstitialcystitis #ibs #sjogrenssyndrome #raynaudsdisease #celiacdisease
For people waiting contact, I sincerely apologize. It's too much right now. My pain levels are high and I'm still just not feeling like me. I am on my way to a new normal. And I really am sorry for giving radio silence. I know some of you have needed me. I've failed as a friend. I swear, I am working to a new normal. It's dark and hard. But...don't stop reaching out ok? Because seeing the messages...seeing that I'm thought of...it does help. I promise. Don't stop ok? Don't give up on me yet. #bipolardisorder #generalizedanxietydisorder #chronicpain #interstitialcystitis #intractableepilepsy #tonicclonicseizures #darkandtwisty #babysteps
#Repost from @blanka_tex1520 Flare days are hard. And this one's a doozie. I'm now struggling with retention and having to self-cath. I have pulled out all the usual stops; baking soda and water, vanilla ice cream (organic and vegan), peppermint tea, heating pad, TENS, Uribel, even tramadol. And sprinkled with a hearty portion of bed rest. But it's fighting back.

Sesame chicken wings, sautéed mushrooms and kale with creamy cauliflower sauce.

From Selma to Montgomery, to Washington, and across the country, in the hearts of those who had given up hope, Dr. Martin Luther King refused to let anyone walk alone. ... ... From this man, who was killed for never giving up the fight for justice for his brothers and sisters, I think we can learn a host of valuable lessons. ... ... The one I reflect on today is that we truly cannot walk alone. Whatever your struggle or your pain, friend, you are not alone. ... ... We walk this path of adversity together, always fighting for more, for better, for hope and for one another. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... #martinlutherkingjr #walktogether #neveralone #chronicillness #interstitialcystitis #IC #heal #healing #hopeforhealing #spoonie #spoonies #encouragement #hope #justkeepswimming #keepgoing #ikeepgoing #instagood #instahope #inspiration #inspired #writing #writingblog #writersofinstagram #chronicblogs #autoimmune #invisibleillness #butyoudontlooksick
As a pelvic health physical therapist I have been able to treat several women with interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome...which is a very debilitating condition where women have severe pain in the bladder, abdomen, and back region which is also associated with frequent urination, leakage while trying to find a bathroom, and severe urinary urgency. . . I have been able to get ALL of the women I have treated with IC/painful bladder syndrome significantly better with pelvic health treatment. And these women are the most amazing to work with because majority of medical treatments have failed them and they are so thankful to have their lives back. . . Treatment consists of a LOT of diet and pain neuroscience education, myofascial release on the abdomen/bladder support tissues/and pelvic floor muscles, void suppression techniques, timed voiding schedule, ultrasound, tens sacral stimulation, specific exercises and stretches, and a lot of patients, love and care for these tremendous women who are normally moms, wives, and bad ass women who have a crappy bladder. . . If you know someone with this condition or suffer from it yourself, send me a private message, I will gladly take my time to talk with you and help get you the care you need and deserve. You are not alone and there absolutely is hope!

Stuck at home sick with a #gastritis flare 😭🤮 at least I finally got my workout ball for my #pt exercises that I have to do 3x per day. Post excision, one of my hips is pulled forward, one facing backward and it’s twisting my tissues and making it more difficult to walk. But I’m already seeing progress after one week - I was in a lot of pain from the exercises last week but it hurts less. Now just to rehab my stomach 🙄 . . . . . #endo #endometriosis #endostory #endowarrior #endometriosissurgery #endometriosisawareness #endometriosissucks #endometriosiswarrior #endometriosispain #endometriosisfighter #endometriosissupport #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicillnesswarrior #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #invisibleillnesswarrior #invisibleillnessfighter #ic #interstitialcystitis #physicaltherapy #pelvicfloorexercises #pelvicfloorhealth

Lets get this week started on a good note and put negative thoughts through the shredder. 🙌• I try to remember something a counsellor I had several years ago told me: for each negative thought, ask yourself, is it rational, is it helpful? 90% of the time it’s neither. So then you can throw it away, squash it in whatever you need to get your mind in a healthier place. 🧠👊💪• What are some of your best tricks to get rid of negative thoughts when they begin to flood in?

Breathe innnnn... Breathe ouuuut... See, doesn’t that feel better? ☺️ ✨As PT’s we are always telling our patients “Don’t forget to breathe!” Why?! Breathing is life force energy! ✨Our breath changes when we have emotional stress, at work, exercises... even when we go to the bathroom! Depending on the scenario, we find ourselves straining, bearing down, breathing superficially, and even not breathing at all. 😖 And believe it or not, this affects the pelvic floor.🤔 (more on this to come) 🔸Pay attention to your breathing. It is a good way to just be present in the NOW. 🙏🏼 ✨So our question to you is... How are you breathing today? ✨

Diet can both cause and contribute to chronic inflammation, which is dangerous and can damage the body if left unchecked. It is also believed to play a part in a number of illnesses. The foods we choose to eat can either increase inflammation in the bladder and irritate it further, or decrease inflammation, providing the bladder with an opportunity to heal. Foods that have been deemed inflammatory should be avoided at all costs! The best approach is to fill our refrigerator with real whole foods! Foods that were once alive (think single-ingredient food). I understand that processed foods are easier, but I think we can all agree that they have not made us healthier. A diet based on real food is how we lay the foundation for better health and it is one of the most important things we can do. Good health begins with our fork!

Prøver lige igen, da jeg blev gjort opmærksom på mit cpr var synligt. Tusinde tak for alle de søde kommentar der var til mit første opslag. Det er jo håbløst det her infektions mareridt. Nu kom svaret på seneste dyrkning og det viser desværre de multiresistente bakterier klebsiella pneumoniae igen. Så nu hedder det iv antibiotika igen. Jeg kan heldigvis få behandling hjemme, men sig mig engang det startede i starten af september og nu skriver vi 21.jabuar. Jeg råbte, skreg, græd til sørens store frustration. Men han @binderupmadsen bevarer roen og får mig til at tælle til ti og bevare fokus.. Fik rigtig god behandling på akutafdelingen på Horsens sygehus og nu må jeg bede til at medicinen virker. Jeg er så træt og så ked af det.

The truth is that no expert, no matter how well-meaning, brilliant, or experienced, can make good decisions for you about what is right for your body without your input. And if they are telling you they can that is a HUGE RED FLAG. An expert can give you important information and guidance about options. They can offer the treatments that they are expert in – whether that’s medications, surgery, a mind body approach, counseling, diet changes, PT, herbs, or energy work. They can make their best recommendations, based on lots of experience, about what treatments will help you the most, but the bottom line is that they are only an expert on their piece of the puzzle, and they are not an expert on YOU. The most important information about what is right for you, and how to integrate the different pieces of the puzzle successfully, will come from YOU – and more specifically from your body (in the form of emotions, or what you likely experience as intuition or a gut feeling). If you don’t think something is right for you, no matter what an expert recommends, it very likely isn’t! YOU are the expert on YOU.
Four years ago, a group of #spoonies got together to send each other happy mail. My idea for Crafty Spoons was born from that group and, even though that Instagram closed, I’ve kept my own happy mail project going. So many of you have helped me in more ways than I could ever imagine. Your stories, your personalities that I’ve been able to put on a small wooden spoon, have been a source of comfort and inspiration for me as I’ve battled my own chronic illnesses. If you are a #spoonie and would like a crafted spoon, please don’t hesitate to ask for one. They’re free, sent from one spoonie to another, in the hopes that it reminds you of all the wonderful things that make you who you are. Illness does not need to define us. We have so much more to offer! I send these all over the world, so please don’t be shy. I promise I don’t bite 😆. Hugs and spoons, my fellow fighters 🤗💜🥄. #spooniesupport #spoonielife #happymail #autoimmunedisease #chronicillness #chronicpain #rheumatoidarthritis #fibromyalgia #chronicmigraines #interstitialcystitis #endometriosis #chrons #ulcerativecolitis #mcas #lupus #idiopathichypersomnia #epilepsy #cerebralpalsy #cysticfibrosis #dysautonomia #potsie #ehlersdanlossyndrome #multiplesclerosis #tubie #gastroparesis #arthritis #pain #mentalhealth
Painful Bladder Syndrome. _ OUCH! This is a very painful condition that sees great relief from acupuncture and dietary change. _ Our new patients who start with us with this condition are often depressed and in despair as nothing has helped them with their pain. Waking up and living a normal day is a huge struggle. It takes a few months of treatment but each week, if we can help, gets better and better. _ Share this post with a friend who who’s going through bouts of bladder pain. And by pain we’re referring to a level 8-10 out of pain. _ Catch Your Fish _ _ #herndon #fairfaxva #northernva #interstitialcystitis #interstitialcystitisawareness #bladderpainsyndrome #bladderpain #painfulbladder #pelvicfloorpain

Good times right here, right?!?! 😭😭😭 I deal with more of the retention part of IC vs going frequently. Retention of urine leads to urinary hesitancy, straining to urinate and that’s my major problem. Not my idea of a party. Bladder spasms can occur when a catheter is placed. This is a sudden intense urge to urinate and can be very painful. Often, urine will leak around the outside of the catheter when a spasm occurs. I deal with really bad bladder spasms and have been given a medication to help but so far haven’t seen any positive results! Who knew life would change like this for any of us?? Why us?? I’ve always been told God gives His hardest battles to His strongest warriors but I don’t believe that. People tell me daily, I’m a fighter, a warrior, and so strong but what they don’t know is without my God I would be none of these things. He holds me up. He makes it possible for me to get through the day. He knows my pain and hears my cries! And He didn’t choose to give me IC!
Interstitial Cystitis was not my friend today. I was so mad at my body. I kept telling myself how this isn’t a fair trial(duh, what trial in life is fair) and how my body is so stupid. I don’t have too many breakdowns anymore but this week wasn’t easy. Last Sunday I bawled because I was scared of my endometriosis coming back. Even though I haven’t had endo pain since this time last year, the pain I used to constantly feel was traumatic. •Having a chronic illness is NO joke. Past few weeks have been great and then a flare comes and knocks me off my feet. These are the times I remember a blessing given to me. I was hoping for healing and that my pain would end but the answer I got was this disease is a life long struggle but because of it I can understand and connect to my Savior in a way I couldn’t before. I can rely on the Savior because he has felt my pain. He knows exactly what I am going through. Remembering that makes these times a bit more bearable... and looking at funny IC memes. #icwarrior #painfulbladderdisease #chronicillness #interstitialcystitis
