Spinach, pea and courgette tomato pasta.
Randomly added a bit of cottage cheese for more creaminess as it’s the only cheese I’m allowed and it worked so well. 🍝

It’s tempting to focus on getting better and being cured but when I look back I realise that I have made so much progress since being diagnosed at the start of the year.
After a period of feeling sorry for myself, I grabbed this illness by the throat and made up my mind that I would not let it take anymore from me than it already had.
It is still a daily struggle but I have worked so hard to get where I am now. I’m not about to give up just yet. .

okay so update I ended up not going to my appointment, it was rescheduled for today but I’m not going either 🙃 this storm is making my migraines sooo bad. I’m going to disney for MNSSHP on friday & I’m super excited, I’m hoping I can get myself feeling better in time :( but I’m really looking forward to it so I’m being positive! being chronically ill is draining because you just never know when a flare is going to hit - or how hard it’ll be. but I’m learning to relove life for myself, and that means pushing myself a little 🌻 hope you all have a good day :,) .

My #new #skirt is being worn for the first time this afternoon. It's my sisters birthday while me and mum are on holiday. Slipped my mind of course. She is visiting my grandad until friday, had no idea and we are all going out for lunch tomorrow. Soooo popping to tesco to get her a card and to print her present off. Then back to #pyjamas and bed.

I managed the morning school run and the popped to boots to have my flu jab then I had to go back to bed as i feel terrible and I've just woken up! I have a friend bringing Alice home from school for me which is a huge help but if anyone has a magic wand to help with either the fatigue or the pain that would be great! #me #cfs #mecfs #cfsme #myalgicencephalomyelitis #pwme #pain #tired #chronicillness #spoonie #flujab #exhausted #sleepy #chronicfatiguesyndrome #fixme #fighter #nap #naptime #bed #pyjamaday #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicpain

I figured I had better post so I don’t get kicked off the team! I really just need to do a weekly list. 😂I do work out six days a week. Really. I just wanted to hop on her and say, “don’t nit pick yourself to death”. If a perfect body is what you are aiming for, stop 🛑. Aim for good health. Love who you are now so you can progress in your health journey. If you are young, remember your youth is a gift. Treat it with respect and your body will last. If you feed it good foods and move, you can age with grace instead of with fear. Stepping off my soapbox. #2girlskindarunning #poppilates #CFS #Celiac #autoimmunedisease #health #54 #movement #pilates #youth

Had to get up early for an important appointment and my head was agony again, horrid pain behind my eye the usual
Was so proud of myself for getting my shot together and carrying on but had to come home after and sleep. Just woken up and here's olive on my bed, bless her 💖💖💖 #tortie #cat #fluffycat #kittycuddles #chronicpain #fighter #cfs #cfswarrior

Dread leaves little room for a positive experience. It ensures that you will feel stuck. You will feel annoyed, resentful, and worn out by the time you've made it through the thing you were dreading.

I've had a number of health challenges in my life and a big one was discovering I had over ten food allergies. This means that I cook all of my own food. To make things easier, I cook large batches of basics that I can freeze and thaw to eat throughout the week. It takes a lot of time and energy and honestly, sometimes I just dread the idea of spending hours in the kitchen prepping and cooking my food.

I caught myself with this feeling of dread and thought, 'What am I doing? There's no way this will ever feel easy or good if I'm dreading it!' So, I took a moment to think of other feelings I have about cooking my food and this is what I got:

I am grateful I get to prepare my own food that keeps me healthy.
I'm grateful that I know how to keep myself healthy.
I'm so grateful that I can eat food that nourishes my body instead of making it ill.

I took those genuine feelings and added in the reframe that I could do it all with ease.

I'm preparing this food with ease. I'm grateful to be cooking this food with ease.

Was I still physically tired from prepping and cooking food? This time, yes. But, I felt lighter inside, with an expanded and grateful heart. There were plenty of times in my health journey that I would have jumped with joy if I had known that cooking my own food was part of the answer to my debilitating fatigue and brain fog. I handed back the burden of viewing prep work and cooking as drudgery, as something that's a chore that I have to do, and took back the joy I genuinely have in being able to live in a way that supports my health and well-being. And I've got to say, that felt pretty amazing.

The key to the reframe is this, focus on what you are genuinely grateful for. Empty platitudes about what you think you should be grateful for will only leave you feeling fake and resentful.

Have you had a similar experience? Is there something you can stop dreading? Let me know below!

Remember, it's a process! ❤️ #chronicillness #chronicillnesssupport
