When these two Pisces fused together we had no idea that six years later we’d make our first baby guppy 😂. I guess it’s finally time to REALLY explain where I’ve been the last few months,😝 mostly just throwing up my entire life, and napping my days away in a ball of exhaustion. Week 15 is here and i’m still very sick and dealing with a lot of Ehlers Danlos issues but there are more good days than in the first trimester, and With @goose_egg5280 on my team, every minute is worth it. It feels like we’ve been ready for so long, and through all of the endometriosis issues we’ve faced, this has truly been a gift. We’re so excited for our baby boy to be here with us, and our pack can already tell he’s coming. The dogs are my body guards, following me every step I take... While daddy caters to every crazy thing I need or crave. I’m truly one effing lucky girl. .

It’s such an honor to be playing along with so many awesome yogis! I’m bringing you guys day 5 of #circlearoundthesun and it’s plank pose! For me plank is one of the safest forms of core strengthening because it’s much easier to catch yourself when in a backbend or not engaging. I promise I’m squeezing! This belly just doesn’t stay in anymore 😂😝

Somewhere along the years, I became left hand dominant at polishing my nails. 😂🤷🏽‍♀️ it’s a mystery to me as well. My sweet soul sister @heyitsjessie.k sent me a box of polish necessities I had been missing in my life )if you’ve been following me since the beginning you know this account used to be a nail art account, but over the last few years anxiety made me neglect and mutilate my poor little nail beds and cuticles. I forgot how therapeutic it was to polish your nails 10 different times in one day 😂😂. Thanks for tolerating this non-yoga post and getting a glimpse into a different part of my life, maybe I’ll post some others, maybe I’ll get back to Yoga soon 😂🖤.

Self awareness has been the most powerful growth tool for me in my mental illnesses. Yes years of therapy had a lot to do with developing that self awareness, but a lot of it didn’t happen until I had a dedicated consistent yoga practice. Yoga really helped me in a way to “grow out” of a lot of my issues.
———————————————————-
Growing up with depression, anxiety, Borderline Personality Disorder wasn’t easy; but the fault was my own for always turning to drugs, impulsive choices or things that would help me escape what I was dealing with instead of looking inward to find what was the real cause. My mid twenties was a big defining moment for my mental health; seasonal depression would hit and I could acknowledge it fast enough to work through it without causing damage or chaos to my life, grief was painful but it wasn’t life wrecking, and my BPD episodes weren’t months of catastrophe, but quick outbursts that were rationalized and managed within minutes, and my manic episodes could be utilized as productive and creative moments in my life.
.
.
.
I’m lucky I think, because some people take a lot longer to get to where I’ve gotten, and some people never get there at all, and some quit before they realize how good life gets. It’s okay if you need more therapy then those you know, it’s okay if your family doesn’t believe in your mental illness, it’s okay if you need medications to feel “normal”, whatever helps you, let it help you. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, keep marching towards it. .

I’ve been gone a long while; anyone still around? Sometimes life throws too many lemons your way, and you just have to spend a month or two making lemonade; and that’s perfectly okay. This time last year I wrote and shared an essay very dear to my heart on the @shethinx website; the article spoke on my experiences- my pain, my shame, and my frustration of dealing with painful intercourse; something 3 out of 4 women experience yet society guilts and shames us into staying quiet about our pain, and suffering in silence. I am eternally grateful for @shethinx for giving me the encouragement and the platform to share something so necessary in the world. I’ve made the article available on my BIO if you’d like to read.

Do you make time to recharge? Or do you wait till you’re running on empty? For a long time I used to wait till the absolutely moment of collapse to fill myself back up; whether it was emotional or physical, I’d give all of me until there was nothing left. As I grow older I’ve learned the importance of taking the time to recharge as often as I feel necessary 🖤

I wanted to take a second and talk about what I’ve been doing, and where I’ve been. First I’ve been disconnecting and reconnecting with the things that matter to me; our lives are changing quickly and for the better and sometimes Instagram just needs to take the backseat. This year I graduated from my holistic Health program and degree at my school, something I had been working at for over four years, I fell in love with every healing and nurturing modality, and with the plants and herbs I connected with throughout the process. I questioned and doubted my abilities and my knowledge for a long time because I was afraid of what others would think, (such a silly thing). ——————
@bloodmoon.alchemy is a passion project I’ve been working on for almost a year now, studying the herbs that had helped me through the darkest and most painful times in my chronic illnesses, and i hope they can bring comfort to some of you as well. I’m grateful for my teacher, my books, my intuition and the women herbalists who I admire and have learned so much from and consider my teachers in some way as well. [the website is celebrating a successful first week launch, with a 20% off sale code: “FULLMOON”]

Yesterday i went to the doctor to get my cast off; nothing had healed due to #EhlersDanlos and because of the weight of the cast it was causing more damage and pain so I was put in a custom splint to wear 24hours a day. Because I don’t EVER practice what I preach I took it off today and tried to handstand; and by tried I mean I put my hand on the ground and immediately sat down crying from the sharp pain and weakness in my wrist... had it always been that bad? Did I not notice because I was wearing it out that badly? Did that time immobilized make it even worse? I don’t know, but I know lamenting over the things I CANNOT do will never serve me... maybe handstands are now part of the long list of poses I’ll never be able to do again due to my failing body parts, maybe time will tell and it will come back. But for now I’ve learned my lesson and weight bearing can wait. (This #pincha had way too much momentum and far too little strength and control 😂) ———————————————————
