Every morning, I take a minute and reflect on my life and journal about what I am thankful for. On beautiful sunny days like today, I sometimes feel overwhelmed with gratitude for my home, Rocky Girl, my clients, my family, and my amazingly supportive spouse. They’re the real reason I do what I do… to make them proud is the best motivation I could ever ask for! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Who are you grateful for?

I’ve had an awful day today 😢in absolute agony. Pain & fatigue have been excruciating. Wasn’t able to move from the bed, took me hours to even be able to change position in bed 😞 Glad I’ve got my gorgeous little fur babies though, they really help me get through the days 💛 #fibromyalgia #fibrowarrior #mewarrior #lifeinpain #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicfatiguesyndrome #brainfog #fibrofog #painalldayeveryday #bedbound #itsnotfair #fibrostrong #mentalhealth #depression #anxiety #kittensofinstagram #catsofinstagram #myfurbabies #myworld🌎 #helpmethrough

Lyme is often a serious, chronic illness that the medical community at large has misunderstood at best, and at worse unacknowledged. How can doctors treat an illness if they don’t believe it exists? They can’t, which is why far too many people have been suffering from Lyme brain for far too long. Impaired attention, focus, concentration, judgment and impulse control. Impaired memory and speech functions. Disorganization and getting lost. Poor problem-solving and decision-making abilities. Slower mental processing speed. Symptoms similar to dementia and Alzheimer’s. 70% OF THOSE AFFLICTED WITH LYME DISEASE REPORT CHANGES IN THEIR THINKING SUCH AS MEMORY LOSS AND REDUCED MENTAL SHARPNESS. - AmenClinics. #ymedisease #fibromyalgia #WeMustFindACure #lymefighter #lymeawareness #dysautonomia #headache #alzheimers #bacteria #autoimmunedisease #migraines #depression #stress #chronicillnesses #chronicfatigue #Lyme #EBV #Bartonella #chronicpain #lymediseaseawareness #denial #memory #brain #neurology #focus

How do the patches work?⠀ A person who uses LifeWave patches utilizes the body’s own energy in the form of infrared body heat to power up or activate the materials in the patch. The patch then reflects light on to the skin which stimulates the nerves on the skin. The result is a specific change in the bodies biochemistry, such as “activating stem cells”.⠀ #youthrenewaltherapy #health #skincare #skin #antiaging #stemcelltherapy #science #healthcare #beauty #painmanagement #chronicpain #paintherapy #stemcell #inflamation at Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

🇭🇺Tegnapelôtt megkaptam a teszteredményeket is levélben a kórházból. Az összes laborvizsgálat eredménnyel együtt. Alig hittem a szememnek! Szuper!! Legalább ezeket is meg tudom mutatni a saját endokrinológusomnnak, ôsszel meg úgyis csinálunk friss vizsgálatokat is. Bár az 1 órás mintám állítólag nem érkezett meg, pedig levették. Egyet kicsit késve vettek le ugyan (kb. 10 perc),ugyan nem vagyok biztos benne, hogy ez volt az. Erre mondjuk elég pipa vagyok, mert ez szokott a legmagasabb lenni és emiatt nálam elég fontos lett volna tudni, hogy hol tetôzik. 12 mmol/L volt az én mérôm, 8.6 az övék szerint. Bár a laborok az ô méréseikhez voltak közelebb. De végül kaptam egy kicsit realisztikusabb diagnózist, kérdôjelekkel. Szerintük reaktív hipoglikémia. Nahát, tényleg?? Miután 10 éve ismerten inzulinrezisztens vagyok és az egyik vezetô tünete az IR-nek, ebben nem sok új van. Dietetikushoz referáltak, szerintük további endokrinológai követés nem kell. Háááttööö... Ez nem igazán így van, de ez megér egy külön posztot. Egy dologra nagyon jó volt ez a vizsgálat. Egészen pontos képet adott arról, hogy pontosan milyen ingerre jelenik meg a fájdalom. Ez bizony, amikor esik vissza a cukrom. Eddig ha sima 2 órás OGTT-n voltam a következô napok kissé jobban fájtak és éhesebb voltam, de nem volt tragikus. Viszont itt pont az volt a teszt lényege, hogy hosszabb ideig nem ehettünk, mint ahogy normálisan tennénk (2-4 óránként) és aki reaktív hipós annak bezuhan a cukra sokszor 3mmol/L alá. Azt már jóideje látam, hogy 1-2 mmol-nyi étkezés utáni vércukoremelkedést az én szervezetem is tök jól kezel. Azt is, hogy ha csúszik az étkezés (<4óra), akkor is fáj a hátam, de kifejezetten égô fájdalom és merev, mint akinek a gerincét betonnal öntötték ki. Na meg fáj a sípcsontom, mintha erôsen rányomná valaki az ujját. Emlékeztek, a teszt estéjén majd megôrültem a fájdalomtól, tényleg az elsô legrosszabb napokra emlékeztetett. Szerencse volt, hogy a következô 2 napban szabadnapos voltam, mert biztosan nem tudtam volna bemenni.

I'm sorry I haven't been posting recently. A lot of bad things have been happening in my life. × TRIGGER WARNING FOR SUICIDE AND SELF HARM × × × × × A month and a half ago my meds completely messed up and I self harmed for the first time in years. 2 days later I blacked out, and swallowed an entire bottle of my medication. I have no memory of this, other than coming out of it and seeing my empty pill bottle and calling an ambulance. I am incredibly lucky to be alive. I am no longer on those meds and am doing much better. Unfortunately I ruined a lot of relationships that were dear to me while my meds were messing up. I am trying to repair the damage I've done, but it's a long, painful process full of tears, apologies, and some hard realizations. Bennie has been there for me throughout all of it. I am reminded daily of just how special he is. I am so lucky to have him. I will hopefully be able to post more now that things are settling down and I'm back on my feet. I am so thankful to all my followers for continuing to follow me on this journey through life and chronic illness.

“Ring the bells that still can ring, forget your perfect offering. There is a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light breaks in.” ~Leonard Cohen So funny, when I found this quote I was familiar with Leonard Cohen as a poet, not realizing it was from a song. Turns out I don’t like the song but I have ALWAYS loved this quote! 🌿 all about my order coming up in my stories!!

Me today 👆🏼 despite being diagnosed hypo as a child and having consistent symptoms, which have hit a new level of debilitating recently, I was told I have #gravesdisease by an endo today. I have NO SYMPTOMS of Graves or #hyperthyroidism but I have every single symptom of hypothyroidism. He suggests I take meds to stop my thyroid producing hormones🤔 I have gained 2 stone recently and continue to gain weight. I’m fatigued, achey, depressed, anxious, slow, fogged and FREEZING 24:7🥶 If anyone can shed any light on this I’d be very appreciative. I’m awaiting specific bloods to isolate Graves diagnosis. I just can’t understand how I could have Graves when I have no symptoms and I’m getting heavier, slower and sadder by the day🤯 #sickandtired #butyoudontlooksick #spoonies #thyroid #hashimotosthyroiditis #hashimotos #hypothyroidism #hypothyroid #autoimmune #autoimmuneprotocol #autoimmunewellness #chronicpain #invisibleillness #chronicallyill #chronicillness #personalgrowth #fatigue #dailywellness #stopthethyroidmadness #hashimotosdisease #thyroidlife #blog #wellness #health #blogger #nutrition #mentalhealth

So I’m still trying to get my trigeminal neuralgia under control with meds, just trying to get the right dosage at the moment ! I thought even though I’m struggling to lift my head I’ve been researching what else I can do to help!!! Came across this with foods that can be aggravating and foods that aren’t so I’ve collaborated that with deliciously Ella’s recipe book !!! Fingers crossed for tomorrow, it’s a new day and going to try some new recipes !!!

The punk completed the 30 minutes worth of paperwork at the new chiropractor... pretty fucking annoyed because I documented myself getting through all the tedious questions, then my video disappeared. fucker🤜🏼🤜🏼. The receptionist told me about every page, she has that shit down, I remember being able to explain paperwork like that... but man I was still so lost when I sat down. I don’t know how many times I had to remind myself of the date, but hey I got it done and hopefully I will get some relief. 🙂💜 #spokenwordartist #sickgirlsclub #postconcussionsyndrome #paperwork #chronicillness #chronicpain #chiropractor #fillingoutforms #casework #poetsofinstagram #awareness #mentalhealthawareness #punk #thispunk #tinnitus #heal #painisreal #believeus #mytruth #thispunk #tbi #paperworksucks

Meditation and Yin Yoga have been instrumental in helping reduce my anxiety and pain levels throughout this journey. Returning to my breath, feeling my belly rise and fall, and slowly allowing my body to release into postures while being supported has allowed me to find a sense of calm and moments of release from everything that is going on in my body and mind. Being able to use these techniques and return to my mat time and time again has proven to be very effective in my recovery. I’ve been asked a lot what meditation app I use. So I thought I would share. 😀 🧘🏻‍♀️ @insighttimer is my favourite meditation app! (And it’s totally FREE). I love it because it has so many options. Guided meditations, courses, music, white noise and a meditation timer. It also has a stories and kids section. You can pick based on teacher, topic, length, sound, and so much more. 💖 #happymeditation . . . #meditation #meditationspace #yinyoga #yoga #breathwork #breathworkhealing #meditationhealing #reduceanxiety #reducepain #findcalm #breathe #inhaleexhale #yogi #reclinedbutterfly #recoverywarrior #postconcussionsyndrome #pcs #postconcussion #tbisurvivor #spoonie #chronicpain #onedayatatime at Ottawa, Ontario

Especially when patients are in a significant amount of pain, I feel that push for immediate results & desire for the magic of acupuncture to shine bright and “right now”! When we receive messages like this a few hours later it makes me wanna dance & tell the whole world about this medicine! I am forever grateful for the gift to the world that is Chinese Medicine! I’m convinced that if you wanna love your life even more, TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) would be the best next step in that direction! 🥰💕✨🙌🏻 . . . . #acupuncture #acupunctureworks #zoitinctures #zoiacupuncture #chinesemedicine #herbs #painrelief #chronicillness #chronicpain #autoimmunedisease #wellness #health #adaptogens #nootropics #budatx #budatexas #austin #austintx #atx #kyletx #sanmarcostx at Zoi Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine

. today i received my first real diagnosis. at 11:30 today i had my first tilt table test. right after bringing me into a near-upright position my heart rate began to climb. eventually i fainted. my heart rate was over 150bpm and my blood pressure was terrifyingly low at the time i fainted. immediately after i came to again the doctor diagnosed me with Neurocardiogenic Syncope. at last, we have a name. the explanation for my palpitations, nausea, dizziness/lightheadedness, low blood pressure, periods of confusion, and often feeling like i’m going to faint. NCS is a type of dysautonomia that causes a drop in blood pressure, followed by either a faster or slower heart rate, resulting in poor blood flow and oxygen to the brain. this can be triggered by physical strain, stress, heat exposure, or long periods of standing. knowing now what we are dealing with is an immense relief. because i often feel as if i may faint but never actually have (other than today) they decided not to put me on meds but instead gave me ways to manage it. i have to hydrate like hell, have a ton of salt in my diet, and take those periods of feeling faint seriously, because now i know i have a higher chance of actually fainting and they aren’t just nornal dizzy spells. i can’t push myself like i usually do, and many changes will have to be made this year with my dance team. it’s scary, is new, but it’s an answer. as we near almost a full year since my medical journey started we finally have something. 💕 6|20|19

Intensive Treatment is the Answer for Chronic Pain or Trauma-Related Symptoms Intensive treatment (a series of multiple-day, back-to-back, hands-on sessions and coaching) is an excellent option if you’ve tried everything for your chronic pain without success. Not many people realize they have this option, or the power in it for optimal wellness, health and healing. After receiving my first intensive treatment my eyes opened to the possibilities for my own healing and transformation. I expected relief of my physical issues, but what I received was so much more than that; a connection to my creativity, a connection with nature, and a connection to who I really was. I started to understand the whole-body pieces to healing; that there were restrictions in my mind-body that were connected to my mental, emotional and physical problems. There was a part of my body that held the answers to freedom, joy, improved relationships, enhanced intuition and many other things. The answer is in “holistic” Read the rest.. link in bio

PHONE BONES ARE REAL (and no, this is not a post about sexting)⁣ 📱🦴😜 ⁣ Australian researchers have found evidence that mobile devices could be fundamentally altering our physiology. They have detected horn-like bone spurs growing on the backs of the skulls of younger adults, who have grown up with these devices and are their most frequent users.⁣ ⁣ According to researchers, these "Phone Bones" form when users tilt their heads forward to view their device. This shifts the weight of the skull from the spine (where it is structurally supported by the vertebral column) to muscles in the back of the head, causing horn-like spurs to grow from the base of the skull.⁣ ⁣ When I read this article (linked in bio), I literally shrieked with fascination and horror (and rhyme-y punny appreciation). These devices have been around for only a few decades, yet they're already altering our skeletal systems that are the masterpiece of tens of thousands of years of an evolutionary quest for perfection. ⁣ ⁣ Of course, phone bones are not encoded in our DNA - yet. But it's not difficult to imagine this trait becoming a survival tool, and eventually a part of our genetic makeup. ⁣ ⁣ Friends - PLEASE practice good posture when you use your devices. Do your best to bring your phone closer to eye level, rather than always looking down at it. I often use my phone while laying on my stomach, so that I'm strengthening the muscles in the back of my neck rather than stressing them with constant downward pressure. ⁣ ⁣ If you feel like you have chronic postural issues, or your neck and shoulders feel constantly sore, yoga and bodywork are a great one-two punch to address pain and muscle weakness. TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODIES PEOPLE!⁣ ⁣ #yogaforwellness #phonebones #posturecorrection #alternativemedicine #healyourself #bodywork #shiatsu #massage #chronicpain #science #nerdalert #RadicalSelfLove #RadicalSelfCare

there is honestly no better feeling, it’s like therapy and a workout and sometimes even a way to work the tension in my back all in one go. So, I never said anything about my horses on here. I have two, Barney and Tina. I’ve owned Barney since I was 14, and he’s now retired with arthritis and calcification. I’ve owned Tina since April. She also has a chronic illness in her own way, she has a mild form of a condition called stringhalt. For Tina, it appears as more like a stiffness and every once in a while she’ll take a few off steps. The warmer weather we’ve been having has actually seen her improve a lot as well. For her, it’s more like a stiffness and it causes one of her back legs to go into spasm if she has to lift and hold it a certain height. It can also make her lift her leg very high, as if she’s stomping sometimes too (and sometimes she does it because she’s stomping anyway!) In terms of how I’ve been, it’s been a mixed bag but I’ve ridden twice this week. A lot of people will tell me I’m stupid for buying a horse right as I’m beginning investigations, and buying one with a pre existing condition, but Tina is comfortable for me to ride. She’s not too wide or narrow she hurts my hips, she’s smooth to ride and whilst I have to use my muscles and my body to ride her, it’s not to the extent that it’s causing me pain or problems because I have to work really hard to keep her going. I still have to use myself to get her going properly, but she responds to my body much more subtly. I have been so tired I ended up crashing out today after work. I sat down on my bed and next thing I knew it was half 4 and I was struggling to wake myself up and ended up sleeping a bit longer. I’m only about to start cooking dinner now and I can feel how tired my body and my muscles are, and how dehydrated I am. I thankfully don’t have to leave the house until 11 tomorrow for work, and I’m only in until 4 so I can sleep if I need too, but I don’t have a day off until Thursday either. at Dublin, Ireland

CBD is taking the market by storm. Everyone is loving it for their pain, anxiety and sleep problems. So how do you know what’s the best? It’s all about the delivery method! What are CBD Transdermal Patches? Transdermal patches are adhesive patches placed on a venous area of the skin, which can release regulated amounts of CBD into the bloodstream over a long period of time while minimizing higher peak concentrations that could be experienced when ingesting orally. Although transdermal application is somewhat similar to oral-dosage in term of efficacy, transdermal patches do provide numerous advantages. I.e. a transdermal delivery method avoids the first-pass metabolism effect that is associated with oral ingestion and thus improves bioavailability. What are the pros of using a patch, over Topical Creams? Topical creams are highly susceptible to evaporation and even that which does stay on the skin can typically be absorbed by the top one to three layers of skin only and as such it may offer a localized relief (i.e. to a shoulder or knee, for example), while the CBD administered via a transdermal patch, can penetrate through all seven dermal (skin) layers and enter directly into the bloodstream. Transdermal patches can thus deliver a more systematic as well as localized relief. What are the pros of using a patch, over Ingesting it? When orally ingested, only 7% of the CBD actually reaches the bloodstream as it first must be absorbed in the stomach and then metabolized in the liver... Patches however, allow for absorption into the bloodstream at a steady rate over a longer period of time without having to continually reapply or re-ingest throughout the day. One source in particular, stated that even a "5 mg" dosage from a transdermal patch would be roughly equivalent to what you might experience from a 40 mg serving that was ingested orally. This is due to the high bio-availability from the patch. As absorption happens steadily over a longer period of time, people often may not even notice the benefits, until they stop to realize that all of their aches and discomfort may be gone… What an incredible relief this can be, for people who are living with chron
