Zucchini, squash, and cucumbers COMPLETELY took over my garden 🤣
Super newbie gardener here, so I literally just picked some different veggies to plant without doing research..🙈 I'll do better next year, but it's so cool to see your work thrive! 🙌🏻 Since I've gardened this year, I have already saved money on veggies! Next year I will save even more because now I have some idea of what I'm doing 🤑
If you think living a healthy life is too expensive, you're wrong! 🙅🏼♀️ I spent 99 cents on seeds for each plant and I have about a dozen cucumbers and a dozen zucchini, and they are STILL growing 🥒
And most of the zucchini is the size of my forearm 😜
Super tip for you lovelies - start gardening. It's super easy and even cheaper to eat the foods your body needs & deserves! ☺
Today I’ve decided to share something that has been heavy on my heart. I’m generally a very public person in regards to my struggles because I’ve benefited from others being that way. However, this is something that has always felt very private to me. But in lieu of recent events, I‘ve felt called to share—in the event that I can touch even one person’s life, and maybe change someone’s mind who may be considering this life-altering surgery.
Six years ago, I was a different person. Physical appearance was everything to me. I hated my body and only saw it for what it wasn’t, rather than what it was. I had gone through trauma and wanted to reinvent myself. I wanted something to hide behind. I wanted a new look to help face this scary world.
I decided to get breast implants. I did my research, I went with a highly qualified surgeon, and I justified any possible side-effects (which I was told, were few and far between) by the fact that I was getting small ones, and the safer of the two (saline as opposed to silicone). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Six months after surgery I started developing weird urinary symptoms (pain and frequency) that eventually spiraled into debilitating pelvic pain and ultimately my endometriosis dx. My migraines went from episodic to chronic. I have a left-sided capsular contracture that has caused decreased ROM, I have experienced extreme fatigue, joint and muscle pain, brain fog, numbness and tingling down my inner thighs, bloating and weight gain. I have gone to a million specialists; had blood work time and time again, tried countless medicines, vitamins, and other treatments; had two laparoscopies for removal of my endo. I eventually accepted this as my norm. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last month, without even searching, I stumbled upon something about breast implant illness. Essentially this is when the body reacts to a foreign body, resulting in an inflammatory response, leading to any number of autoimmune reactions/conditions. Upon removal, some implants have been found to be infested with mold, adhered to the chest wall, or have leaked their contents into the body. Even saline implants have a silicone casing, so none of them are safe (cont 👇)
epiphany: an experience of sudden and striking realization
still in awe because of jin's intro track (swipe left for a close up on the song's lyrics), so I created a totoro version coz suddenly i realized that it fits— all the rain and totoro's mood, ㅋㅋ
