Chronically Yours  Support and encouragement for those with chronic illness(es) from a Christian, Nurse, and a mom of two who is chronically ill.

Truth!!

Not gonna lie, anxiety and depression have hit me hard the last few days. It's so hard to come up for air sometimes...anyway this is raw and real but it is what it is. I refuse to lie and cover up how things are for me but yet somehow I still do it. I constantly put others before myself but yet no one does it back. It's lonely at times but I think maybe sometimes I need to be alone in this...but who knows maybe that's the way this stupid disorder wants you to feel. #rawandreal #depression #anxiety #fibromyalgia #gastroparesis #asthma #chronicebv #chronicpain #chronicmigraine

Sooo...I guess I get to add either asthma or chronic bronchitis to my list of issues?? Really as if I don't have enough issues?? Now my lungs want to be crappy? πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ yay!! πŸ˜πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜ž ok trying to be positive....it could always be worse. So many have it worse than I do.....that is positive but I want to be so negative right now. πŸ‘ŽπŸ» #spoonie #ineedmorespoons #fibromyalgia #gastroparesis #chronicebv #chronicpain #asthma #chronicmigraine #chronicbronchitis

Does anyone else have this problem?? Going on 5 years fighting the system over being disabled. No one will hire me since I'm sick all the time--I can no longer work as a nurse. OK---soo apparently my problem is that I have an education, my age, and I'm not a druggie...πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈREALLY?!? I mean I have no words. Seriously comment and let me know....I feel alone in this. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Truth for all these numbers. Number one has gotten me lately and it's hard not to feel...which leads to number two. I guess they can all lead to each other ...the thing we have to remember is that we aren't alone and grasp that knowledge and not let go of it. Hang tight fellow spoonies...you're not alone!!❀️ #chronicmigraine #chronicebv #gastroparesis #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #fibromyalgia #spoonie #ineedmorespoons

Ok ...we all need a little humor in our lives. This was me yesterday at the ER when the doc said everything was fine...don't get me wrong I'm glad it was all good (I took a nasty fall and hit my head) but I was in so much pain it was hard to believe. This is basically how I feel at every doctor appt anyway. It'd be nice if doctors felt our pain and then maybe they'd be a little more proactive in helping us out. In other news I now have two new medicines as friends: Compazine and Benadryl I.V. ...let me tell you!! Together they are amazing. πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» #chronicebv #gastroparesis #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicpain #chronicillness #fibromyalgia #chronicebv #chronicpain #chronicmigraine

I always feel defined by my illness. I'm sure I'm not the only one!! πŸ˜‰ I can't do this or that because of *insert illness here*. It's hard, to not let it become who we are...I struggle every day. But the strength and courage I use to get me to even get out of bed or to open my eyes makes me feel better in knowing I can overcome the day then later when exhaustion sets in realize that those two thing and Gods grace allowed me to make it through the day. Gentle hugs and spoons to all!! πŸ€—πŸ€—. #spoonie #spoonielife #gastroparesis #chronicebv #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #fibromyalgia #chronicmigraines

Hoping and praying for each one of my followers today. That you may get the relief that you need and feel that you aren't alone in the struggle that is chronic illness. Love and hugs to all of you!! ❀️. #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #spoonie #chronicebv #chronicmigraines #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #gastroparesis

Migraine awareness! Bring education and awareness to migraines!! They are truly disabling for those of us who suffer from them...if only it got awareness like some of the other illnesses. #moveagainstmigraine #chronicpain #chronicmigraines #chronicmigraine

At the end, I pray that I represent the battles I've won. I know we all have our battle scars--some more than others. It just shows what we've been through and where we've been. Even though my journey sucks, I'm hoping that somewhere along the way I am able to help at least one person--so I'll wear my scars proudly. ❀️

It's been raining here at home. With the rain comes so much pain for me. I try to be normal but I just don't think it can happen. Today I think I almost lost it. I saw disappointment on my sons face that has eaten me alive---I long to be the old me....to be the mom my kids remember. I can only hope that one day I'll be normal again. Looking for my rainbow in the sky full of raindrops and clouds.

This is so true for myself and I'm sure for some of you. Sadly that's how we cope especially when we know others don't understand. I probably need to be more open and try to help them understand how I feel. That may be my next goal-if my introverted self can open up more.
