Amen!!! Add ... "I'm tired too" or "I don't feel good either". Don't brag that you can do the things I can't as if it's the same struggle. Don't act like we have the same life & same body... Everything I do is 3x harder on me than it is on you. I promise.... #spoonie #chronicillnessstruggles #youhavenoidea #walkinmyshoes #dontjudge #beinghealthymustbenice

Chronic illness wisdom ! ❤️💕🦋🙋🏼‍♀️

😕😢 I’ve been struggling the last few days and weeks honestly.. I’ve got a 22hours a week job since 3,5 month and I’m noticing more and more that I can’t do it anymore. But I don’t want to fail again, in my previous job I worked 30 hours a week and I had to quit that job after being homesick for over 2 months. I am honestly desperate because I wánt to be able to work and I am struggling with the conflict in my head, 👿the one side; just work on, don’t be a fool, push a little harder and sleep a bit more, it’ll be allright if you just keep going on.. 🤗The other side; just be honest to yourself, tell your boss you have to work less hours and start over, take the rest you need, even if that is a lot of rest. Your body knows what it needs.🤗 I know what would be the best option for my body and my health but that means I have to admit to my illness again and lose a bit more of the healthy me that I was years ago...😢🥄🦋. #struggles #chronicillnessstruggles #illnessstruggle #fibrostruggles #fibromalgiastruggle #wisdom #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #awarenessmonth #chronicillnessawareness #chronicillnesssucks #spoonies #spoontheory #spoonieproblems #spooniewarrior #spoonielife #spooniesisters #spooniesupport 😕🦋🥄

I finally managed to turn my bookshelves into rainbow shelves😻🌈 These aren't the best photos as I had to take them from wheelchair height but I prefer them so much!!🙈 My mum actually did all the hard work while I sat directing her from my bed opposite #chronicillnessstruggles 😂😭 #rainbowshelves #bookshelfie #newbookshelf #prettybooks #bookshelftour #rainbowbooks #rainbowbookshelf

When my family decides to go on walks with the dogs or go somewhere that involves a lot of walking it actually breaks my heart knowing that i cant join them because of my lungs, joint pains, and the symptoms of passing out when standing and walk. So i think the power assist would be the best way for me to get my indipendence back and get me out of the house more. Not being able to do things is really taking a toll on me mentally and i really dont know what else to do. #powerassistwheelchair #smartdrivepowerassist #chronicillnessstruggles #potssyndrome #asthmasucks😷 #jointsubluxations #jointpain #iwantmyindependanceback

Why is it that every time i have to drive 3 hours to get to my doctors it is always bad weather.... Ggrrrr this will be a fun drive... Not. #lifeofachronicallyillperson #chronicillnessstruggles #gottadowhatyougottado #lifewithchronicillnesses #churgstraussyndrome #vascilitis #lungdiseases #asthmalife #chronicpain

What's the first thing that comes to mind when I ask You what you're thankful for?

Though I spend my days on the sofa, fighting to eat and sleep, fighting against fatigue and pain, I look forward to a day where I can sing in the shower, or even just stand in the shower! Small joys really make up the day; appreciate what you have, when you have it! And appreciate what you used to have with joy, instead of resentment!

I am thankful for my huge bathtub, and truly thankful that my loved ones doesn't comment when I'm overdue for a bath 🙈 ♡

So true 👌 the last 3 days have been tough. Pain and fatigue galore. I just hope I can make it to work tomorrow. God knows I need the money!

One of my fave insta pages.. with a message for this worn out chronically ill Mum of a near 18 likely aspie.. A message I was trying to get through to my partner of nearly 20yrs, yesterday. We're both feeling it.. what our Sons going through, and the weight of the daily grind in our ways here. Hopefully I'll get some time to really apply this to myself.. today or soon. Its been tension central here for about a year .. praying the psychologist helping our son has some answers, and more guidance soon.. ❤💛💚💙💜 (try give oneself reiki with a hyper mode aspie teen, or when he is in rage mode, or attention seeking mode.. does asking for reiki from ones guides before falling asleep, count? 😉

How to: manage school and chronic illness! I apologise for the mass text, but I wanted to make this post as informative as possible but still appealing and helpful to quickly read rather than have you read an article (which this already sorta is)! Also apologies if some of this does not make much sense in terms of the individual healthcare plan, as I'm from the U.K so I do not know much about what the care plans are called else where and how they're carried out -

Comment down below if you have any tips that you'd like to share! 💖

Since I have to stay off the leg still @phoszoe got me a book to read. #mywifeisbetterthanyours #reading #chronicillnessstruggles

Knee still bothering me. Taking it easy today watching Gunsmoke. I am going to get a second opinion tomorrow. #chronicillnessstruggles #oldtvshows #westerns #elevateandice

Here are a few things I've compiled about what I miss from being healthy and not having any chronic illnesses to deal with. I guess they are catered around my own personal thoughts on what I miss but let me know if any of you also miss these things or what else you miss the most. ----- Also, really sorry guys that I haven't been able to upload in a week or more - I've just been really busy but I'll try be more active again!

I over did it while moving and now my knee has an effusion so bad that I am being referred to an Orthopedist. This is what I am paying today for living yesterday looks like. I was told to stay off of it for 2-3 days. #chronicillnessstruggles #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicillnessadvocate #payingtodayforlivingyesterday

Oh the struggle... the struggle to look normal, to not look like crap, to hide the weight caused by medications and inactivity because of pain, to seem happy when you’re not, to not show the pain so others won’t worry, to not take your anger and frustrations out on loved ones, to get out of bed every day, to not let the depression of it all eat you alive and to accept the limitations of your illness(es). #chronicillness #chronicillnessstruggles #painwarrior #butyoudontlooksick #iamwhatapersonwithaninvisibleillnesslookslike

Trying to work up the strength and motivation to run errands. Most people take going to the store for granted they just just go. When you have mental health issues it is different because of my anxiety I have to get my courage up to go. I'm also introvert which does not help. Because of my depression I have to get my motivation up as well. That is how my mental health issues affect my quality of life and daily living. #mentalhealth #chronicillnessstruggles #neverbeashamed #depression #anxiety #ptsdsucks #iwillovercome

Mental health is important. My chronic illnesses and mental health issues mean lots of pills. This is my evening and bed time pills. I take 4 pills in the morning and one at noon. But these illnesses affected in many more ways beyond meds. Let's talk about depression for a moment it is not just being sad. Sometimes I am not sad but numb and have zero motivation. On those days getting out of bed and showering are huge accomplishments. If you have never had mental health issues you would not understand why showering can be a huge victory but on bad days it is. Imagine getting no enjoyment out of your favorite activity. That is how depression affects you. Think about going through your day feeling like you are dreaming that is PTSD and Depression combined. I@shine being in store and suddenly feeling like you have to get away or suddenly feeling a weight on your chest. Anxiety combined with PTSD can do that. That is just the mental health issues. Imagine feeling pain everyday having joints that get stiff and barely move. Imagine having burning pain or pins and needles in your muscles all the time. These are my chronic illnesses and daily struggles. #depression #ptsd #anxiety #rhuematoidarthritis #fibromyalgia #chronicillnessstruggles #mentalhealth #mentalillness #chronicillnesswarrior #mentalhealthwarrior
