PJ's IN A HALF SHELL... Because I'm not coping with life/functioning successfully as a human right now, my friends came over this evening for an in-house going away "thing".
So here I sat all night, perched on the couch with mulled wine in hand as we played CAH, slothed around in our pajamas & ate pizza shapes.
Cowabunga.
A perfect night in if you ask me.

Tried to get this shot before all my berries sunk😂there is about 1/2 pack blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries, I buy all organic when it comes to berries! Today is the first day of my new job and I'm feeling like 👍🏼👎🏼. Isn't the job I want to be doing but it's getting me out of my cabin! Within 24hrs of quitting my job I got 2 new job opportunities, I'm not telling you to quit your job, but we can always find a better situation even if it's the same job! As I go through these waves of change I am grateful to be able to have something be the conductor to get me to where I want to go🚋🚋🚋🚋 ✨If we looked at everything as temporary we truly wouldn't be concerned with where we are now✨ - Dolphins Insight🐬

After all this time, I figured it would be nice to put a face to the person behind this page!
My name is Taylor Casey and I created this page as an outlet to hopefully share and help others going through a similar journey to myself. .
.
.
.I am a writer and artist at heart, and I have been on a journey to wellness ever since I was struck down by Chronic Illness five years ago. I was diagnosed with an abundance of conditions including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and finally, Late Stage Lyme Disease & Co-Infections. From these series of infections, a wide array of inflammatory conditions and symptoms have prevailed since, including autoimmune disease, endometriosis, arthritis, brain fog and systemic pain- just to name a few. .
.
.
.I guess you could say I haven't really been one to share or talk about my journey, as many of you would know that when you have a chronic illness, the judgement and ridicule from the outside world can be cruel and heartless, and an unnecessary stress when you are already suffering so much. The devastation this has had on my life is indescribable, as I have been mostly bedridden for years and years on end. Hundreds of thousands of dollars spent, overseas trips, doctors who said that there is no hope and no end to the pain - It all felt so dark. .
.
.
.But now that I am finding the solutions to the complexities of chronic illness and mental health. I want to ditch the fear, ignore the judgement and dive head first into sharing the mental, spiritual and physical tools and learnings that have been guiding me to wellness, whilst connecting with all of your beautiful souls along the way!
.
.Who knew that we all have the answers and healing capabilities within us from the start?

I'm Reading a book called 'the cfs myth' it's about how diagnoses as fibromyalgia and cfs are just excuse diagnoses to avoid having to look to deep into the patiënts immune system because chronic illness is expensive and chronic patiënt are a financial burden for our healthcare system. It tells the story of so many (young) patiënts that have to fight long ways to find out what's wrong with them, they get so many pills and cognitive therapy until the real problem gets so bad it's already too late and organs are damaged and it makes me sad and confirms the conclusion I made myself the last years. Now I was lucky to be diagnosed with my immune problem first. And I must honestly say since Ive put my energy on fighting crohn's (what was probably already the case when I was send in for 4 months psychotherapy) instead of fibromyalgia, the fibromyalgia is getting less and less of a problem and I'm starting to believe it's a side effect of ignoring what's really tearing you apart physically and emotionally. Though it makes me sad I'm so gratefull I have the energy and focus again to suck up the knowledge I can use for my next Storms. I think esspecially for my phellow Dutch warriors this is a very interesting book to get more insight in the systems we are fighting.

The feels right now. The real ones. I'm changing meds. 💊 if you know, you know. There are pros and cons to this situation- pro= pain is lessening, its still there but I can tell there is a difference and it could continue to decrease. I'm taking time to scan my body and appreciate there are side effects happening instead of experiencing blind anxiety I'm coping with it. I can actually tell how I feel and relate it to a cause. I'm doing this with support and medical advice. Cons= my life is on hold while I stabilise. No work. No travel on my own right now. I feel clouded and not quite real. Side effects include drowsiness and incoherent moments but also restlessness and weirdly the inability to actually sleep. I'm in limbo and not quite sinking not quite floating right now. The world still turns and life goes on. I just have to keep remembering there will be a time everything will balance. 🐥

I usually don't do this on this page but @findingsolaceproject is absolutly amazing. She was making braclets for spoonies for free, using her own money even though she is also struggling with her own chronic journey, but now has to stop. She has also been raising awareness about chronic illness and mental health and has done so much for the spoonie community. As she is no longer making the bracelets all the money from these shirts is going to charity. If only a small percent of our followers purchased a tee shirt it would do a lot to help. Without the target being reached, none of the money will go to charity and all of it will be kept by the site. Here is the info on the shirts from Finding Solace's page: The Finding Solace Tee. LINK IN BIO @findingsolaceproject Available for men & women in a variety of colours. A number of people have backed out from purchasing a tee, which unfortunately brings the order numbers down for the target Hence the need to get the word out. #LimitedEdition #SpoonieTee #Tshirt #ChronicallyAwesome #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #ChronicallyIll #Spoonie #MentalHealth #Depression #Anxiety #PanicAttacks #Endometriosis #Fibromyalgia #CFS #SuicideAwareness #InvisableIllness #ChronicallyFabulous #SpooniesUnite #awareness #disability #mentalhealthawareness #anxietyawareness #depressionawareness #awareness #endthestigma #disabledandequal #disibilityawareness #fundraising #charity

Hola, Happy Saturday ✨ How are you all this morning? Totally off topic but I thought I'd just share this with you; As many of you know I suffer with chronic illnesses (including M.E) and I've found this absolutely brilliant book! @yoga_mybed_and_m.e gradually eases you in to short, simple gentle stretches as well as suggests sequences of movement too (I'm yet to try those as I'm just at the start of my discovery) ~ All in the comfort of your own room & bed. Whilst away, I've been carrying it around with me, and felt I needed just one of the stretches on the beach yesterday. Perfect for anyone with joint/muscular issues & fatigue 💜 So although it's off topic, I just thought I'd give Donna a #shoutout as well as share this great find too!
Have a relaxing, wonderful weekend.. Namaste 🙏🏼 L xx #saturdayshare #newfind #yoga #yogainbed #beachyoga #gentlestretch #movement #chronicillness #myalgicencephalomyelitis #cfs #fibromyalgia #eds #pots #livingwithchronicillness #spoonielife #yogamybedandme #supportlocal #smallbusiness #chronicallycreative #daisychainmakes

Quick survey for my chronic pain warriors!
I can't even go to a mall(fluorescent lights) or bath and body works(too many scents) without leaving with a massive headache, among other symptoms. For that reason, I wear sunglasses all the time---thankfully I just end up looking like a fashion snob.

Oh Saturday I love you ☀️💕🙌🏻 #beachwalks #saturday #sunset

My view last night was this! Work leaving do at Pizza express, company fantastic, food appalling. They served the mains while people were still eating the starters... I won't be bothering with overpriced pizzas again.

No help at the ER and none at my doctor

No more for profit.

PERSONAL Training. What does that mean? It means being specific to an individual. Tailoring to an individual's needs, requirements and capabilities. No cookie cutter or generic programme! It's not always a case of "go hard or go home".
My client here, Hannah, has had a recent diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Initially seeking a Personal Trainer to help with stubborn fat loss, we are having to shift the focus onto health and wellbeing. No high intensity workouts which will exasperate her symptoms and cause her to crash. Finding that balance of just pushing enough, Hannah works really hard. Our focus now is for Hannah to become strong through controlled and progressive weight training, fat loss will follow. I understand no two days will be the same for Hannah, so it's a case of working with what we have on the day.
The main thing here is, Hannah is doing her very best and the fact she even enters the gym is scaling a huge hurdle before she even starts. Everyone should take a leaf out of Hannah's book 🙌 #clientfocus #personaltraining #specific #inspiring #fromillnesstowellness #invisibleillness #qualifiedpersonaltrainer #weighttraining #weightlifting #bodybuilding #fitness #strong #strongwomen #strongnotskinny #girlsthatlift #ladiesthatlift #girlswhosquat #girlswithmuscle #keepstriving #keepitreal #progressionnotperfection #workinprogress #thyroidcancersurvivor #cfs #kerryvictoriafitness

Today is the 40th day of my POTS #treatmentseries! Today we'll be talking about service dogs. Use the comment section below to share your experiences with this treatment option. ⬇️ I know many people with POTS have service dogs to help them with their daily tasks. One potsie & her very talented dog even had a video of them go viral. I have a dog but he's definitely not a service dog. 🐶

Heal your gut, heal your body 🌼 When I was first unwell it felt as if my whole body broke down and I soon learnt how important your gut health is as 'your second brain', 60-80% of your immune system is located in your digestive tract. This is what I take:
-
Probiotic - Adds 'good' bacteria to your digestive system. And loads more!
-
L-glutamine powder- Helps to rebuild and repair the gut lining, letting fewer toxins in. This is the reason why I'm taking it but it does loads more.
-
Digestive enzyme - Helps the body break down difficult to digest foods, meaning less energy is used on digesting food.
