Getting some light exercise like a walk is great for your health. Hope everyone has a good Sunday! Keep Smiling. Keep Fighting. Keep Moving Forward.

When you (stupidly) decide to take a very hot bath when you have POTS, and afterwards you have to lay on the floor with your legs elevated and trying to catch your breath because your head is throbbing, the room is spinning and your heart is racing. #justPOTSthings

Infrared sauna is such a great tool when it come to detoxifying your body.
Infrared saunas help your body release a number of toxins, including heavy metals like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals. With infrared sauna technology, you can also lose weight, relax, relieve unwanted pain, increase your circulation, and purify your skin.
Sitting in one of these saunas assists the lymphatic system with the removal of the toxic loads minimizing swelling and water weight as well as help with acne. This is a great way to eliminate while the nervous system is in the resting state. .
Yesterday was actually my first experience sitting in one of these as my home town didn’t offer them anywhere.
.
It’s definitely a different experience than sitting in a traditional Finnish style sauna. It was much more gentle and less overwhelming.
.
As with anything new for healing or improving health, start slow and build up. Sitting in these saunas can make you feel great when done right. Build up to 20 minutes at a time & see how you go each time.
.
Be sure to drink plenty of lemon/lime water, coconut water, or cucumber juice to replenish after detoxing in the sauna.

First beach day of the summer! Better late than never. 😂 I had to fight hard to make it out today. Woke up with horrible pain and felt so exhausted that I could just melt into the bed. I gave myself a pep talk and decided I needed to get out, be in the sun, get out of my head and hoped my body would follow along. I did have a good time and lasted a few hours, mainly sitting and laying in the sand. Now I'm crashed, cant get out of bed and needing to rest. Trying to keep the faith in the treatment path I have chosen, and believe my body will continue to heal. I'm questioning If I should be doing more or something different. It's still hard for me to accept that my body is so fragile and I can't live the life I imagined I would at the moment. Hoping for miraculous healing in the next few months. Lyme may try to bring me down, but I will survive and I promise to help others dealing with this disease.

Sprouts sales always bring me to new things! Hakuna Banana Choco Choco Chip is so good, my Nephew Sabastian ate half the pint with me! All banana, coconut milk, dark chocolate, dates...so good!

A nostalgic #fbf moment on this ☔️ Saturday of my first headshot, many moons ago 🌕
I’ve been finding more and more photographs of myself as I’ve been clearing out each space that surrounds me. Photographs I had tucked away these past 3 years because I couldn’t find myself in them anymore.
It was hard to look at a photograph, a self-portrait, even my own reflection, when I couldn’t recognize the person staring back. Even harder, to know it was me, and have no idea how I got from that point to where chronic Lyme left me stranded.
But even deep uncertainty can’t hide the moments of light that have guided me to where I am now—to a point where all that haziness + darkness has come into focus. Where I’m able to not only recognize the girl in the photograph, but also feel confident that I honestly know her ♥️ (📸: Headshot, circa 2010 — Chelsea, NYC 🎬) #alymeaday

• August 10 ~ 17, 2018 •
It’s becoming a more frequent occurrence for me where digital breaks are becoming a part of my new normal. A day here, 3 days there, a couple of weeks in between. I’ve found that it’s actually become part of my process of letting go, a part of my journey that has been ebbing and flowing at a constant pace 🌊
So holding the present, I’m going to keep taking each day as it comes, with 📲 in hand or not, and seeing where it will take me, one day at a time 🍋 (📸 via @pimfeels) #alymeaday

Invisible illness is horrible. It's the hardest thing to diagnose. There are 100s of symptoms and a millions tests. Drs dismiss you when you are a young and the stigma is rough. I've been fighting for years. It took me over 3 yrs to find a Dr that understands me! The amount of testing blood work mris I have to go through is insane before we can even get an accurate diagnosis. This show is a disgusting portyal of chronic illness. It makes these poor people suffering and everyone else seem like its all in there heads and its something people just imagine. No one should be questioned for feeling sick. The fact that @netflix made a show where they make money off of manipulating people's disease and sickness and a whole community makes me Ill. Please sign petition in bio and share. It will only take a second. Trust me everyone knows someone this will help xoxo

Có lẽ em đã quên tôi rồi. ^^ #LYME #2M

Now reading: return from Guatemala edition. If you love me, please read this. Understand. This has been the last 5-15 years of my life. I started reading this on my flight to Guatemala, cried, vomited, and had to put it away. She is me. This is one of my new favorite books. #nowreading #sick #sickamemoir #porochistakhakpour #chronicillness #lyme #centralsensitization #pleasereadthis #icanteven #soreal

Practice movement.

My Movement /Body Priorities:
1. Energy, health, and feeling good
2. Movement, mobility, and freedom of expression.
3. Muscular development and aesthetics

Start with movement. Move your joints. Start slow. Yoga was super helpful for me when I got started moving at 19 years old.

I know what it's like having health, movement, and aesthetics taken away by chronic illness. Some things we have control over. Other things in life, we do not.

Do what you can. Play. Love yourself no matter how your body is right now. And honor whatever power you have in life to make changes.
