As we are now heading into fall and winter, it’s even more important to test your vitamin D levels now.⠀ .⠀ This is especially true for those dealing with systemic chronic inflammation because those processes in the body use up vitamin D quickly.⠀ .⠀ Low levels of vitamin D contribute to:⠀ ❌Decreased immune function,resulting in recurrent infections and colds/ flu⠀ ❌Fatigue⠀ ❌Seasonal affective disorder, Feeling “blue”⠀ .⠀ Finding out your level and then supplementing with a little extra for a month or so can be helpful to put-cha at optimal levels and ward of cold and flu this Winter.🙌⠀ .⠀ Want to learn if you’re in the optimal zone nutritionally going into Fall, DM me to schedule your two-part Fall tune-up! This is a mini package of 2 45 minute appointments, one to evaluate your needs and a follow-up to review labs and make suggestions to optimize your health for the cold and flu season.⠀ .⠀ Questions?

Who wouldn't be changed... Some days for the better..when I am feeling good, when I feel hopeful Some days for the worse....when I am down and don't wanna keep fighting, when I'm frustrated or mad.... But through it all I know there is a reason for me to walk this journey..so I will push ahead.. Some days like a warrior Some days like a whining little b@#$* But I will never give up💪💜 #crohns #spoonie #invisibleillnesswarrior #chronicillness #piccline #infusionlife #mentalhealth #iv #prednisoneproblems #sickgirl #crohnsAwareness
So everyday in wake up optimistic that today I will need no pain meds... So everyday for the last 2 weeks I wake at 4 and skip the pain meds (tramadol). I am not hurting at 4am just awake cuz my schedule was messed up and I take prednisone then so by 6 when kids up I'm good to go... But nope. Each day I tell myself what an idiot I am... These last 2 days I have really paid the price!🤬🤬 So I will lay here and try to rest my tailbone which is killing me... I will lay here and tell myself tomorrow be smart not strong, you need a rest and it's okay😒😒💜 #spoonie #chronicillness #crohns #chronicillnesswarrior #invisibleillnesswarrior #ibd #iwearpurpleforme #nevergiveup #needcurenotdrugs #pharmacylife 💊 #infusionlife #biologicdrugs #autoimmune #mentalhealth #ibdsuperheroes
Things not to say to a chronically ill person.. we know noone would ever choose this life and I wish everyday I would stop so please don't remind me... #crohns #spoonie #chronicillness #invisibleillnesswarrior
I used up a spoon 🥄 but I awarded myself a gold ⭐️ because I am washed, dressed and groomed. I don’t think I look sick today and it’s been fairly low medication so far today (okay I have been awake for just a few hours but it’s been two doses of pain medication, but only one opiate so far)...and I got so stressed about making myself something to eat (a weird thing which might require a second post) that I had a cry and a Valium so I am just waiting for that to kick in... I feel a bit rubbish for how much better makeup makes me feel, it’s confusing...I don’t think I use ‘normal’ comparisons with appearance, looking attractive to others or competing with other women, I don’t really mind ageing either; I used to model and my appearance was a commodity...however I soon left that behind and my brain became more important; I have a PhD in a science subject and I found, in academic circles, wearing makeup was looked down on!! Without makeup I worry that the signs of tiredness and the tiredness I see in the mirror is my body decaying from what I have put it through; too much alcohol, too many chemical escapes...a body constantly mired in negativity. I see the damage I do. So, whatever gets you through is okay so long as you don’t hurt anyone else in the process. It’s different strokes for different folks. . . . . #semicolonproject #semicolon #selfcare #lookafteryourself #makeup #bluehair #chronicpainwarrior #ptsdsurvivor #depressionrecovery #anxietyrelief #fibro #ankylosingspondylitis #tooyoungforarthritis #autoimmunedisease #butyoudontlooksick #spoonie #spoonielife #nottoday #nottodaysatan #suicideawareness #pleasedontdie #breathe #thistooshallpass #yougotthis #yougogirl #girlpower #invisibleillnesswarrior #cfsme #endstigma #missingmillions
DisloKate: Origins (Part 3) is up on the blog! Okay, y’all, real talk here; is it easy for you to read on Instagram and zoom in on the photos, or do you have to go to the blog to read the text? I’m also curious, if I were to offer photo captions/descriptions on the blog, would that benefit you? I realize I have some followers who are visually impaired, or who get eye strain from staring at a phone screen (I get this all the time), and I want to make my comic strips accessible to everyone. Comment below and tell me if you’d benefit from this ⬇️ • • • #chronicillness #chronicpain #spoonie #ehlersdanlossyndrome #invisibleillness #chronicillnesswarrior #ehlersdanlos #chronicillnesslife #mentalhealth #raredisease #spoonielife #zebrastrong #invisibleillnesswarrior #spooniewarrior #chronicillnessawareness #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillnesswarriors #sickgirlproblems #chronicillnessesdontdiscriminate #chronicillnessblogger #butyoudontlooksick #sickgirl #superspoonie #chronicillnesssuperhero #yougotthis #wearestrong #femalesuperhero #femalesuperheroes #superhero #DisloKate

This morning my mom lost sight in her right eye. We found out she had a stroke in her eye. She will never see out of her right eye again. Never expected something like this from back surgery 😢 #backsurgery #surgery #hospital #yorkhospital #yorkcountypa #fibromyalgiawarrior #chronicillnesswarrior #spooniewarrior #invisibleillnesswarrior #eyes #eyesight #eyesightproblems #blind #blindness #stroke #family #mom
So today I had a GOOD day. I had a small amount of energy and low-ish pain for the first time in FOUR weeks and man did it feel good. . Today I got dressed, walked the dog, worked on my blog, did a food shop (!!!!) AND cooked Dave and I tea. . That may not sound a lot to anyone who is health but I could cry with joy reflecting on today. So I'm celebrating with a glass of prosecco and I'm re-watching Gossip Girl in preparation for New York!! I hope your Monday was filled with some positive things and wishing you all a happy Tuesday tomorrow.
Today is about celebrating small victories 💜. . I've been doing that a lot recently, during a bad flare up. Every small thing I've viewed as an achievement and it's helped keep my spirits up. Brushing my teeth - victory, eating lunch - victory, changing my pyjamas - victory. . Count your small victories and remind yourself you are amazing and you're doing the best that you can!
💛 Hello lovelies! • No therapy this week as my therapist is on holiday. To be honest it’s nice to have a break! • I’m acutely aware that my therapy is finishing in November. I’m not sure what the next step is...and I’m nervous about that. • I know I’m going to be doing some graded exposure, so that will be fun! • The photo is from a shoot my boy was doing this week. I love working with him so much. He’s an amazing artist and I’m so proud of him. • This photo does not represent how I usually look by the way. Often (...who am I kidding, most of the time) I struggle to shower for days and days, my wavy/curly hair gets matted. My appearance is both something I often don’t care about due to depression and anxiety, but something I do care about when I want to practice self care. • I hope you’re all having a great Monday. And if you’re not, try not to beat yourself up about it. Remain kind to yourself. You are worth it. Try using some distraction; I know that in itself can be hard. I’m always here if you want to say hello. 💛 Sending you all lots of love and strength. #endthestigmaofmentalillness #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthreality #mentalhealthawareness #therapyoffice #therapylife #keeptalkingmentalhealth #mentalhealthrecovery #recoverywarrior #bipolar2 #bipolarstruggles #bipolarstrong #bipolarparent #invisibleillnesswarrior #invisibleillnesssupport #depressionhelp #depressionrecoveryprogram #chronicpainlife #chronicpainawarness
Needing prayers that this is just a muscle problem and not a spine problem. Even though I have movement in my neck that I haven't had since getting fused. A bit nervous and the pain is HORRENDOUS but I'm strong and will make it through this like I always do. So thankful, that my wonderful hubby was able to take me to where they will actually know what to do with me. The staff at Rush has been good so far. Now let's hope this isn't as bad as it looks and feels. Pray, send positive vibes,send good mojo my way please. #NeedStrength #InvisibleIllnessWarrior #InvisibleIllness #AlwaysLookingForward #BrainBleed #FusedFromSkullToPelvis #Scoliosis #ScoliosisWarrior #ScoliosisFighter #ScoliosisSurgery #TetheredCord #EDS #EhlersDanlosSyndromeKyphoscoliosis #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #ZebraStrong #MentalHealth #MentalHealthAwareness #MentalBattles #MyCrazilyCurvedStory
Monday gratitude 🍁 for the littlest things like a perfect lil maple leaf, for this place, and mostly for my friends. When I decided to come here last week I started packing a bag without knowing how I’d arrive. This life with RP came with the decision to stop driving years ago. But when I told @nellpritch that I wanted to go, she told me she’d drive me. Without hesitation. That is love. In its purest form, love. To drive someone an hour away and receive nothing in return. Love. And then to do it again days later (joined by @schumann.wizard 🙏🏼). I am so awake, seeing so clearly what is most important in life. This love that flows both ways. This deep knowing that you’d do the same for them, no doubt, because that’s what real friendship is. I’m so lucky to have found these people only in the last 2 years. And to feel so at home. So full of love.
Let's share our victories big and small and spur each other on! . 🥄🥄If you are a spoonie your biggest victories may be just doing something you have been packing away spoons for. . 👟🏅If you're an athlete it may be consistent progress and hard work toward your goal. . We could all use some regular encouragement. 💪 . 🎉 What victory are you celebrating today?🎉 . . . #healthy #healthyhabits #strong #stronger #strongwomen #strongfit #strongerthanyesterday #familygoals #familyhealth #knowbetterdobetter #crunchymomma #crunchydad #strength #mobility #movebetter #functionalmovement #functionalfitness #balanced #healthylifestyle #wellbeing #chronicillness #invisibleillness #spoonielife #chronicpainwarrior #spoonie #chronicallyill #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicfatigue #chronicpain #invisibleillnesswarrior
Clouds over #chicago . I've listened to #homesickatspacecamp probably 900 times while I was in the air. I listened to #falloutboy , from beginning to mania, with a little #soulpunk mixed in. They take me home. To where my heart is. I loved these clouds. This picture Is from my very first flight EVER. I couldn't believe how grounded I could be in the air. #jetsetter #chubbybunny #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillnesswarrior #amputeam #amputee #btkamputee #chicago #unitedairlines #tennessee #livingmylife #wakingup

This is the face of one of the approximate 1.5 million U.S, and approximate 5 million warriors worldwide w/a confirmed diagnosis of some form of #LUPUS We may walk this earth undetected by the naked eye, but we are here! We are fighting! And we will find a cure in memory of those gone before us, and for the future of those who come after us! #wearelupusstrong and we won’t back down! #invisibleillnesswarrior #brandysaijourney #ouraijourney #SLE #lupusfoundationofamerica 💜🦋💪🏻
Elle: 1. Moi : 0. Le score d'aujourd'hui. Invisible mais bel et bien là. J'ai finis par apprendre à vivre avec elle mais il lui arrive encore de frapper fort et de réussir à me mettre K.O...comme aujourd'hui. Elle, c'est qui? C'est cette maladie chronique et auto-immune qui ronge mon corps: polyarthrite et fibromyalgie. A toutes celles qui vivent ce combat quotidien, je vous dis "ne lâchez pas!" Oui, je sais pertinemment ce que c'est que de se sentir prisonnière de son corps, d'endurer la douleur, de supporter la tonne de médicaments à ingurgiter, d'avoir dû arrêter de faire des choses que vous aimiez, de continuer à travailler tant bien que mal, de faire face aux jugements d'autrui et en dépit de tout cela, d'essayer d'avoir une vie "normale" et épanouie. Mais, ne l'oubliez pas, nous sommes des guerrières! Alors, tout comme #AndraDay le dit dans sa chanson, "nous nous élèverons, comme le jour se lève, nous nous lèverons malgré la douleur, on s'en sortira et on déplacera des montagnes!

If you could only see my expression. I feel like this shirt is perfect for tonight. I cant stand needles or shots, much less doing it to myself. But #aimovig is so worth the being uncomfortable
Gotta squeeze this little lady and make her take pictures with me before she gets too big. . . Finished up my accounting math homework; got 100%. Got a little house cleaning done, in between my naps. I still have a lot of dishes to do but I really don't have the energy. . . Not looking forward to the beginning of the work/school week. I really wish I could just work from home sometimes since I can't really sleep or lie down when I need to. Atop all that I have a math exam and an IT assignment to do. . . I've stopped to enjoy a little downtime with my dogs to rest up and not exhaust all my spoons. . . I really wish the weekend wouldn't end. It's so nice to just be fibromyalgia me at home. . . #dogmom #dogmomlife #fibromyalgia #fibromyalgiawarrior #spoonie #spooniesupport #hashimotosdisease #hashimotosthyroiditis #thyroidproblems #chronicfatiguesyndrome #invisible #invisibleillness #canecorsopuppy #canecorso #thinbluespoonie #invisibleillnesswarrior #instaday #healthblogger #collegelifeproblems #worklife #weekendmood #workweekhustle #sundayblogshare #blogger #bloggers #bloggerlife #puppylove #furmom #newmexican
