Last night came too close... I guess my baby has Addison's disease. It's a very rare disease that, if not diagnosed and recognized, is deadly. Sam went into a crisis last night and almost died. And when I say almost I mean that the doctor wouldn't even give us a estimated probability of her making it. She was unresponsive and her heart was barely beating. I am so thankful that she did make it! Now comes the long road of research, vet appointments and making sure that this never happens again. #addisonsdisease #addisonsdog #addisonsawareness #beaware #shepherdsofig #germanshepherd #dogsofinstgram #mybaby #tooclose #iloveher

My weekend was great, had an amazing anniversary week. Just focusing on the positive when life tries to bring you down 😊

I've been unable to get out of bed today. Even with a double dose of steroids and 200 mg of narcotic pain medicine my body is still racked with pain and I'm unable to sit up without a knawing sensation in the pit of my being. I have chest pains and respiratory difficulty, headache, and my skin hurts if its touched. I get sick when I eat and avoid eating because it just leaves me nauseous. I spent last Friday in the ER and have been told my body is unable to respond to the demands I make of it. My ER doctor just simply held my hand while I cried and told me I'd just have to find the time to rest. If you know about the spoon theory, I've gone ahead and borrowed spoons into next year trying to keep up with work, school and the non-profit. I'm unsure of how to make any more space in my life for rest...I've dropped classes, I've cleared my schedule of freelance work and do only what I need to survive....except for the non-profit, which is my deepest passion. I wish I was normal again, I wish I had a normal body again. I wish I could run again like I used to, and work as much as I wanted and not end up in pain and tears. I love life so, so much and I'd give anything to be healthy so I could embrace it without the pain and fatigue. Don't take your health, your strength, nor the beauty of life for granted. God, life is so incredible...and truth be known...I don't think I began to love it this much until I became sick. Sometimes you don't truthfully understand the gifts that are in your hands until they are no longer there. If you've not stopped today to feel the sun on your face or listen to the wind or enjoy the love of your family, do it. If you haven't stopped in the middle of a busy work day to contemplate how wonderful it is that you are able to work, do it. Because life is so grand. Please don't take it for granted. #fibro #fibromyalgia #fibrowarrior #adrenalfatigue #addisonsdisease #addisonian #pain #chronicpain #chronicillness #spooniestrength #spoonie #spoontheory #fatigue #autoimmunity #gratitude #life #inspiration #energy #youdontlooksick #addisonsawareness #thankful #peace #balance #oceanside

I realized I hadn't posted about #Lillie 's Addison's Disease in awhile--which is actually awesome news! She just had her monthly #percortenv shot and all has been well. It's been nearly a year since her last Addisonian crisis, and hopefully we've finally just found the proper dosing to prevent her from ever having another one. Also since I've been home for the summer I decided to slowly reintroduce chicken into her diet and so far so good. She's been eating chicken with no side effects which means no more food that costs a fortune! I pray she continues to be healthy because I just love this little Shih so much!! πŸ’™πŸΆ

My good friend Jessie almost lost her dog Chubs recently. Luckily they were able to get him to the vet in time to save his life. However, they are having trouble keeping up with Chubster's vet bill. If everyone could please donate anything you can Jessie and Chubs would be forever grateful for your kindness in their time of need. If you are unable to donate, please share so Chubs can get the help he needs ❀
