Working with women for the last 6+ years in my #counselling practice, I've repeatedly seen a pattern with the women who hit #adrenalfatigue and #burnout. Often along with #chronicillness #chronicexhaustion #depressedmood and #anxiety there's also #exerciseaddiction #orthorexia #emotionaleating and #dietobsession.

Listen in as I interview a client of mine who has #transformed her lifetime patterns in a short period of time within my my group therapy program and 1:1 sessions.

Assumed my position on the sofa. Trying to keep focused on what I have achieved, not what I haven't. A few weeks ago I was still spending most days in bed and I have to keep that in mind when I feel frustrated or under pressure. Just small steps in the right direction, pausing as often as needed 🌚

Fun Fact:
I probably nap more than any toddler or senior you'll ever meet.

At least I managed to get my video audition in before I returned to my couch of solitude lol. This exhibition is getting so old! I'm always tired. #chronicexhaustion

I've been awake since 2:45am for work and have been going non stop since 😴 man these kids are lucky they're cute. #chronicexhaustion #momlife #naptime

to everyone who is still on break.. consider yourselves lucky. some of us go back to the real world tomorrow. #chronicexhaustion #futureteacher

#storyofmylife . #chronicpain and #chronicexhaustion due to stupid #chronicillness . >_< Still 100% better than I was this time last year so I won't take it for granted, and today was a particularly good health day so I traded in all my #spoons just to be able to put away my clothes and organize my room and I succeeded spectacularly πŸ’– and I'm ridiculously proud! #spoonie #success #smallthings #supertired #insomnia #ijustwanttosleep #now

Who thinks this fruit bowl looks a bit like a Christmas tree. Life imitating art? Starting to see some progress in what I have achieved over the past few days. My physio/accupuncture/pilates session has done me in but hopefully I'll be reaping the benefits again over the next few days. Onwards and upwards 😘

Not gonna lie, Saturday was a rough day. My job isn't physically hard, but it is emotionally/mentally stressful. My weekends are spent recovering from my week and I find it frustrating. I want to get things accomplished on the weekends; housecleaning, laundry, organizing, giving Drake a bath, hanging out with my sister and beautiful nieces..... and instead I spend my weekend stuck on the couch in a haze of exhaustion and pain. I am doing better, my functionality is far above what it was even 6 months ago, but I want MORE. I want to not spend my free days on the couch, go to the gym, be able to keep up with the house work, take my dog for a walk, etc. I just need to remind myself these things take time and chronic illness is just that, chronic. #chronicallyannoyed #chronicallyill #weekendsinahaze #ijustwanttospendtimewithmyfamily #wishingfornormality #chronicallyfabulous #pcos #chronicmigraines #chronicexhaustion #family #frustrated #stressed #feelinglessthan #snapchat #snapchatfilters #feelingrough #family #nieces

So hungry this morning. I managed a walk around the block today πŸ’ͺ and some Christmas shopping online! I'm now eating a great big brunch of wilted baby spinach with feta, nutmeg and olive oil, portabello mushrooms cooked in butter and a couple of free range eggs. That's me done for the day πŸ–’

Enjoying some lightly salted, roasted pistachios as a well earned treat. Cutting sugar out again is having a definite positive effect on my energy levels. Yay!

Beans means....soups, stews, salads, falafel, chilli, houmous, dips, burritos, brownies and so much more! There are few things that can't be fortified, padded out, thickened or enhanced in some way by a tin of beans πŸ’ͺ Planning to make some black bean brownies today πŸ‘Cheap, quick, easy and nutitious, what's your favourite way of cooking with beans?

Hot, spicy coconut, chickpea and vegetable curry with rice is perfect for this chilly Friday lunchtime. I always try to precook rice and refrigerate it overnight before reheating. This process allows it to turn into resistant starch meaning less of the rice is digested, fewer calories absorbed and it acts like beneficial fibre in your digestive system!

This is my last post on what has been an awesome day. I've just put my new Advent calendar out ready for the start of December tomorrow. It has room for all sorts of sweet and healthy treats inside!
Today has been exceptional. I've only been at home cooking, posting on here and doing very little else apart from physio/accupuncture and picking my daughter up from college. My day however has been remarkable as I feel almost normal...I have energy, I don't have overwhelming pain, exhaustion, nor most of the myriad of other symptoms I experience daily. Days like this come out of the blue, unpredictable, infrequent and invariably fleeting. I've had a feeling of complete elation all day. I could cry at the sheer relief from pain and exhaustion! Chronic illness sucks and it's only during these brief respites that I realise I actually am, like so many of you, a warrior every day πŸ’ͺ

A flower (πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) for the lovely people I converse with on here. If I'd known what a spirit of community and support there is on Instagram, I'd have joined much earlier on, in this terribly isolating year. Wishing you love, light, laughter, beauty, hope and happiness in every day xx

Freedom from pain is possible, even in fibromyalgia. Sometimes you just have to think outside of the box. Check this out πŸ‘‡πŸ½

There is a case report of a 61 yo female with fibromyalgia. She had undergone multiple radiofrequency ablations to the nerves of her back and was on several meds (Lyrica, Celebrex, Fentanyl, etc). Finally she underwent a 5 day infusion of ketamine and by her 3rd infusion she was pain free.
.
.
Here's the awesome part, after a booster 2 weeks later, and at multiple follow up visits, she had more than a year of no pain! (citation of the case report below). She took a chance and got a treatment, that is outside of the box of current fibromyalgia/pain treatment!
.
.
Now we wish we could insure every patient be cured of their FM and pain. But why wouldn't you give something new a try...especially if your options are invasive or doing more of the same? Why not seize the opportunity to decrease if not eliminate your pain?

Keep an eye out for more posts about fibromyalgia and ketamine infusions! πŸ‘€

It's taken me all morning to prep and cook this lovely vegetable curry as I've had to sit down every couple of minutes. Does anyone else overfill their saucepans, trying to cram in as much as possible? πŸ˜‚ Scroll through the pics to see if you are as messy a cook as I am when I'm in a rush or like today, struggling with every single component! It's been worth it though as this will feed us all for a couple of days πŸ’š

Overwhelmed with things I need to do at home so I ventured out instead to collect a package and treated myself to this pot of gorgeousness in the process.

Persimmon and pomegranates for breakfast today. Hoping these vibrant, vitamin packed goodies afford me some of their energy. Happy Sunday morning ❀

It's sometimes really hard to keep eating well when it doesn't feel like it's making any difference at all to my symptoms and my health shows no improvement. I really have to remind myself that when I do eat badly, especially sweet things, I feel even worse and get stuck in a cycle of completely overwhelming exhaustion and sugar cravings. I just had wilted baby spinach with feta and mushrooms for breakfast, even though I'm craving rubbish. Eventually this bad spell will pass. Sending love to everyone struggling with chronic illness. There is a wonderfully supportive community on here and for that I am deeply thankful πŸ€—

Post dialysis snooze. This guy earned his nap; rough dialysis with headache (migraine). Made it through lunch and our first parent/teacher conference before crashing. #thesnuggleisreal #toddlersofinstagram #chronicillness #lovewhatmatters

The many faces of fibromyalgia.
It’s real. It’s debilitating.
.
Yes, I still smile.
Yes, I still laugh.
Yes, I’m still in pain.
.
I don’t need you to understand. But when you question and doubt my experience, you’re being an asshole.

Don’t be an asshole.

Thankful to be up and about today. Cooking up a big cauliflower, aubergine and sweet potato curry and a load of warming tomato soup. I'm determined to make some changes from today. Living with chronic pain, exhaustion and a myriad of other symptoms is hard. It's been increasingly and insidiously taking over my life and I've succumbed to it more and more, retreating from everything and only enjoying tiny snapshots of time with friends and family when fueled with painkillers and bravado. I am inspired by people I follow on instagram, who have found the strength to practice what they preach and to not let chronic illness defeat them. I wholeheartedly believe that good nutrition, exercise, mindfullness, positivity and gratitude are the key to optimum health. I have beaten this before and I will beat it again. To anyone else who intermittently posts positively on social media then retreats to bed, often for days or crawls from bed to sofa, only to comfort eat and compound the struggle with exhaustion, chronic pain and depression, you are not alone. Behind every photo is a story. I often don't cook for days. I don't go out, don't get dressed, don't get washed. I only get up to see my family. The pain is overwhelming. The exhaustion is overwhelming. Other times it's become a force of habit and the result of depression and hopelessness which has crept in during the struggle to recover from an injury I sustained 15 months ago and which has effectively put my life on hold.
Taking baby steps today. I can because the pain is tolerable following acupuncture and physio yesterday. I will need strength and willpower when it kicks back in again.
I am feeling determined. Long may it last!
Thank you for reading this ridiculously long, honest, spur of the moment ramble x

Serendipitous find while cleaning this am. First time in weeks I got a burst of energy to complete a task. #cleanallthethings #findourdaddyakidney #findbillakidney #chronicillness #chronicexhaustion #wordsofwisdom #spoonie #esrd

Feeling pretty good πŸ‘ for having been sliced and diced! 😱😷 It's ironic: compared to all my #CrohnsDisease #surgeries this was *much* less complicated, yet the impact will/should be (πŸ™) exponentially greater.
See, #SuperiorMesentericArterySyndrome tries to (mechanically) starve you to death 😡; so my body's been under severe nutritional and functional duress for the last 18 months. Unfortunately, #complicated and made worse by my #Crohns and #ShortGutSyndrome issues, many of the #SMA treatments actually made things worse (those 30lbs I gained were NOT without significant tradeoff). I spent the last year or so fading further and further from existence... There's constant pain and nausea (despite the G tube to vent my stomach, the SMA obstruction often blocks it), and (often violent) vomiting. I sleep 😴 10-12 hours a night and still nap bc my body works so hard to digest (18 hours on the feeding tube plus what I manage by mouth). Other times, bc of the position of the stomach and vagus nerve, my body reacts to simple stress with a full-out meltdown: my hb and bp shoot up, I get shaky, and sweat *pours* out of my head, face and neck until I cool down, 😌 at which point I literally shudder uncontrollably until my body temp evens itself out. These episodes last up to 30 mins and are beyond exhausting πŸ˜₯.... Between pain, meds, and the metabolic stress my body is under, my brain exists in a permanent fog 😡. I struggle to think, for neurons to connect. Factoids I've known for years (including my own!) disappear and I can't remember shit... I've withdrawn from people and friends bc I literally don't have energy to expend on them (sorry!)... For months I've been physically, mentally, emotionally unable to perform the necessities of daily living-- (normal daily essentials like a shower, making/eating food, chores, etc)-- nevermind the fun, enjoyable, extras that make life worth living.

So here's hoping I can be a part of Life again... πŸ™πŸ‘πŸŽ‰πŸŒˆπŸŒΈπŸΎπŸŽ†πŸ˜˜πŸ’ž #SMASWarrior #ChronicPain #ChronicNausea #ChronicExhaustion #vagus #BrainFog #NYPresbyterianWeillCornell #DigestiveDiseases #FabrizioMichelassi #DDJ #DuodenoJejunostomy

Lyme is Loneliness.
Missing the days when I was able to be around people and noise. Now, just holding a conversation wipes me out. Having a TV too loud or my family speaking too loudly makes me feel worse. I miss being able to listen to someone when there was background noise... or being able to watch β€œthings moving” (people dancing, playing baseball, etc). I found this quote and it is perfect. I miss who I used to be β€” 19 years ago 😒

I think I can! I think I can!

The day I received my stem cells!

Thanks to @very_rare_illness_warrior for this. Funny how looking fine equates to we should just snap out of it and BE fine! Would that I could.

Let me tell you, this woman is AMAZING! She is so strong, and encouraging, and Godly. She is younger than me and yet a role model for me. It was so good to see her and catch up for the first time in a year (she came all the way from Africa just for me 😜) @crystalsikobe I love and adore you.

Me and my baby always look out for one another even when we're poorly, that's what you do when you love unconditionally equally, we just have to pull through the next couple weeks somehow...got to be strong now...when it rains it really does pour...iv not had this much crap going on all in one go for while now, other than my poor health, I count my blessing that my dog is always ok...sigh πŸ˜πŸ˜‘πŸ˜’πŸ˜”πŸ˜•πŸ˜€πŸ˜ŸπŸ˜’πŸ˜©πŸ˜¦πŸ˜§πŸ˜°πŸ˜³πŸ–“πŸ’€πŸ’£πŸ”«πŸ’Š

When you're unshaved and exhausted and every part of you is covered in what is hopefully paint, throw on a few rhinestones. You'll feel just as shit but they'll distract from your bags. #hscart #art #artmajor #artbodyofwork #idontwanttopaintanymore #imsotired #help
