I am always surprised and disappointed when people reach out to me saying “my _____ (doctor/boyfriend/friend/mom/etc.) doesn’t believe in POTS, what should I do?” 🙈 There has always been a time in history in which the validity of ALL (physical & mental) illnesses were questioned because yes, even cancer, were once unseen and dismissed. We just happen to live in the awkward transition stage from POTS being identified for what it is in 1993 (although POTS can be traced hundreds and hundreds of years across history, most commonly known as “soldier’s heart” ❤️) and becoming a household name. We’re in the in-between stage of illness recognition: identification and adequate (and thorough, replicative) evidence are there, but doctors don’t have adequate incentives to expand their knowledge. Once a doctor said this to me, and not in a “you’re not suffering way” like it’s sometimes used, but in a “maybe it’s something else” (since they weren’t knowledgeable about POTS). I responded by saying something along the lines of “well, some people also believe the earth is flat, it doesn’t mean it is.” 😂👆🏼

This has been a revolutionary idea in my life for the last 6 months and I’ve finally began to create a life with firm boundaries (out of love for others and self-respect) and simplicity. 💗 I can’t do as much as a healthy person and stressing about that isn’t going to make it any less of a reality. I’m realizing that I’m not called to be in a rat race. I have a lot of learning and recreating to do but I’m on my way.

Day 10 of “Spoonie Christmas Challenge”: if you could get rid of 1 symptom, what would it be? 🤔 Fatigue. 100%. Brain fog’s definitely the runner up. These are my 2 worst symptoms. I never experienced even 5% of the fatigue I experience on a daily basis with CFS and POTS before I got sick, even when I had 2 hours of sleep and went to work for a full time when I suffered with daily migraines & neck pain. My entire life revolves around conserving and distributing my energy with precise intentionality. There’s not a single moment in the past 4 years where I’ve been able to freely live for 60 seconds without being at the mercy of my severe chronic fatigue. Modafinil has made it so I no longer sleep 16 hours a day and can actually go to school but I still can’t even do 10% of what I used to be able to do before POTS & CFS. 😔

Day 11 of “Spoonie Christmas Challenge”: pets or service dog. {aka my favourite day of this spoonie challenge} 🐶 Fozzzyyyyyy!! ❤️ If you’ve followed me for more than 0.5 milliseconds you’ll know that I have an adorable dog who has stollen my heart. I live alone and although (as an extrovert) I make sure to see friends frequently, almost all of my friends live a 45 minute drive away from me (that’s just how our very large, very congested, city is laid out). Besides God, Fozzy is the #1 reason I’ve gotten this far in the past 1.5 years. He’s the reason I started leaving my house in the biggest pit of depression. At that time in my life, due to both POTS and depression, I would frequently not leave the house for 5 days in a row or see anyone. Now, no matter how I’m feeling, I’m outside with him and talking with my neighbours. Adopting him from a shelter (he’s from the streets of Tijuana) was the best decision I ever made. ❤️❤️ He’s a spoonie dog who’s anywhere from 2-6 years old and thinking about losing him one day is the biggest and most invasive fear I have had these past 2 years. I lost our family dog suddenly (aneurism) before and it was traumatic and I would not be able to handle losing Fozzy. Even though he’s not technically a therapy dog, Fozzy has saved my life many times when I was having suicidal ideation because of severe hormonal depression my thyroid tumour triggered (that I no longer experience). He laid with me on the bathroom floor all night and would lick my tears. He is literally everything to me. I prayed for a dog and getting him was a God moment (I’ll explain one day) and every day God comforts me through Fozzy. ❤️

Best Breakfast! I really love my Cassava Arepas/Patties. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 You can fill them with anything you would with a sandwich 🥪 but this is Gluten Free👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 and all natural 😃 if you can find the Cassava, boil it until is cooked but firm bc you need to grate it. With a bit of water you form a ball and then a pattie. On a non stick skillet brown it. It takes a little while, you want to form a crust so you can open and fill later with your favorite foods👍🏻
I prepared mine with avocado 🥑, baby Kale and shredded chicken, and a touch of olive oil!!! Yummm😋••

🇻🇪Arepas de Yuca!!! Este desayuno es uno de mis preferidos!!!🤗 cada vez me salen más fácil. Realmente para amasar es más fácil si se cocina la yuca hasta que quede al dente para poder rallarla. Hace toda la diferencia! Esto es mejor que un Sanduches🙃 es Gluten Free y natural!!!👊🏻👏🏻👍🏻 y las puedes rellenar con lo que más te guste!!
La mia y la de mi hermana @noita_descrivan las preparamos con aguacate 🥑 de base, Baby Kale y pollo desmechado con tomate 🍅 y un toque de aceite de oliva! Realmente espectacular!!!

One of my favorite things @essentials365 and I made at our online make + take was this candy cane foot scrub! (You can watch the video using the link in my profile!) Peppermint is definitely a favorite of mine and this is just heavenly 😍
You’ll need...
• 1/2 cup Epsom salts.
• 1/2 cup sea salt.
• 1/4 - 1/2 cup olive oil (or your favorite liquid oil! Other suggestions would be avocado, grape seed, sweet almond or fractionated coconut).
• 15 drops dōTERRA peppermint essential oil (or more if you’re like me 😍) Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl then add to a 16oz glass jar with a lid. Use in the bath to relieve sore, tired feet

Guys i honestly need help or suggestions on what I should do about me skin. (Warning you’ll see Todd) If you swipe right, you can see how red and irritated it is. And its getting to the point where it’s itching like crazy and hurting.

I’m going to call my ostomy nurse later on today but if you have any ideas on what will help, so I can ask her about them that would be amazing!!

The spray and powder I’m using is
1. Arglaes Powder 2g-Silver Antimicrobial barrier dressaing
2. Cavilon- no sting barrier film

Again any suggestions or tips, I’m all for! It just hurts so bad. It’s becoming unbearable. Thank you in advance.😩❤️#ileostomy #ileostomyawareness #ileostomylife #ostomy #ostomates #ostomyawareness #ostomywarrior #stoma #girlwithguts #chronicillness #chronicpain #hiddenillness #invisibleillness #loveyourself #bodypositivity #positivevibes #help #nocolonstillrollin #notalldisabilitiesarevisible

I'm exhausted, I'm sore, I've been used as a human jungle gym (and been head butted multiple times) but seeing these two monsters again has been something I've been looking forward to all year. They are josh's cousins (but they love me more 😉) and they are the most amazing little twins ever. They are out with their parents today so I'm making the most of the time resting 😂 but I'm looking forward to them coming home a little later so I can have more cuddles 😁 I may be feeling terrible, but this is a pretty good reason to fight it harder than usual. #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicallyill #invisibleillness #crohnsdisease #crohns #ibd #autoimmunedisease #family #familytime #love #holidays #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniestrong

Happy Monday🤗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I just have to survive this week then I’m off for a beautiful 10 days!🙌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 🧠Here’s a migraine recipe I use!🧠
I take some cinnamon and add water. I mix it until it become a paste. I put it on my forehead and temples. It DOES burn. It’s almost like when I was a kid and people would say put a big red gum wrapper on your forehead. I keep it on for about 20 minutes and rinse it off. For some reason it helps take away the migraine. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

here's a real depiction of gastroparesis/cvs, if you're not comfy with vomit don't read on! ×
izzy was in the bathroom with me as i got sick. she immediately knew something was wrong and came over and whined about 30 seconds before i got sick (probably because i also knew i was getting sick). then, after, she tried sniffing the vomit in the toilet. 😷 i sat against the tub and she came over and shoved her face in mine-- her ears were flat and her nub was wiggling the entire time. she was happy i was okay. and then a minute or so later i had to push her away, this time she tried to get in my face as i was getting sick. so i had to shove her away. didn't bother sitting back this time, just asked her to come over and leaned my head against her, and she put her head on my shoulder (or in this picture it looks like her nose? idk). i ended up getting sick twice more-- both times she watched and definitely wanted to sniff it (ugh 😝) but. it's something that happens a lot, and something that dyre has never been a fan of (who can blame him?). i don't know if izzy only stuck around because the door was shut, but. the fact that she came over each time to check on me was just? it made me feel not as alone. this has been happening for years, always at random times, and 75% of the time i'm home alone (because i don't spend my time with people). to have someone there, even if it was a dog, kind of as a reassuring presence? i just? felt okay tonight? idk. ×

Excellent! It’s always comforting to be sent into a restricted 🚫❌ area due to your health! I’m currently radioactive and wondering if a spider 🕷 bite right now, would turn me into spiderwoman?
I was injected 💉 at 9.30am with a radioactive isotope and am hanging around 🤷🏼‍♀️ until 12.30, when I’ll have a 40 non scan to see what type of uptake my bones have had, of the isotope.
Thank god I downloaded 4 episodes of The Crown from Netflix (#gifted) and brought my charger and a flask of coffee. It’s actually quite nice to be forced to sit and rest for a few hours! :

Pain level tracker in progress.
It's been a relatively low pain level month so far. I haven't had a day without pain, but a few with only mild pain. To be honest - I haven't had a day without pain in almost 7 years. I guess I'm used to it 😁

Yesterday I sat in a flying machine and took photos with my tiny computer while they fed me rehydrated eggs and a very good carrot and sultana muffin. Now I’m home in Aotearoa with my family and today I slept in, swam in freezing water while looking at cloudy mountains, went for a long walk along the beach and played a game of Scrabble with my family that involved a lot of yelling. I’m trying to relax into this loveliness and gently get the message deep into my brain that I almost lost my chance at these things forever. Death is final and I almost died. That’s how it feels when you almost killed yourself when you were suicidal. Now that my mental health is better, I keep looking back in horror and feeling so sick about what I almost did. Like an intense and sickening vertigo. Suicide is not a “choice” made by cowards, it is the desperate action of a suffering animal that can no longer imagine an escape from their pain. It is the logical solution for a brain that has switched permanently into clinical depression. I want to never, ever get in that headspace again. I am hoping that Buddhism and medication and community and self-compassion and prioritising what is important will help with that because suffering is a fact of life and that I will suffer again is inevitable but if I can l learn to be compassionate towards myself and my pain, then I might be able to weather my suffering with acceptance and resilience. Life is so hard, life is so beautiful. I almost left this all behind. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the horror and loneliness of that realisation. If you are feeling suicidal, please know that I know how horrible it feels, I know how lonely it is, I know those feelings of utter, abject hopelessness, I know how you see all the pain and suffering in the world and you are just so tired of fighting... so fucking tired. I know, it’s so fucking hard to hold on and I cannot ask you to do so when I am not in your shoes, perhaps my suffering pales in comparison to yours because I just can’t know how hard your life is. But from my own experience I just want to say that life can surprise you in ways that you didn’t expect. (Continued in comments.)

I had two appointments last week. The first one was with a neuro-skeletal specialist in regards to a pinched nerve in my ribs and the second one was with my psychologist.

Why is it that I’m comfortable talking about the first appointment but I hide the second one like it’s my dirty little secret? They’re both to help me with my health the only difference is there’s no stigma around the first one. I don’t worry about you judging me because I have back pain.

Getting ready for 2018 with @wavehellotoemily . It starts with a blank page, a laptop, a cup of coffee and some wild ideas. It looks like 2018 is going to be our year!

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic sulfur compound. Studies could show it acts as a powerful pain reliever for example for joint and muscle pain but also for migraines and also can help to treat allergies. It has no side effects in any of the tested dosages.
.

MSM ist eine organische Schwefelverbindung. Laut Studienlage hilft es gegen Schmerzen, untersucht wurden bisher vor allem Gelenk- und Muskelschmerzen, aber auch Migräne. Auch in der Behandlung von Allergien ist es wirksam. Zusätzlich hat es in allen getesteten Dosen (die deutlich höher als jede Behandlungsdosis waren) keinerlei Nebenwirkungen.

Please go and help this amazing human being!

Say whaaaat! Is it time to get active? Oh go on then! Let’s go for a walk, do some stretches or some weight training. Its all for a good cause, moderate exercise gets the heart pumping and improves blood circulation to organs. Good blood flow is important because blood carries oxygen and nutrients to important body systems. Aaaanndd this makes us feel good! #getactivenow #theendolifestyle

Dear Diabetes,
Every time I eat.
Every time I go to bed.
Every time I wake up.
Every time I need you, just, because...
You’re there. I’m like a pincushion. My fingers scarred and callused from blood pricks. My belly bruised and tender from injections. My highs and my lows. Even my in between just right days. I shy away from candies, breads, and well just sugars and carbs in general. I fear ketonacidosis. I fear losing my legs or feet. I fear going blind. I fear kidney and organ failures. I fear losing my teeth. I fear so much with you that I walk a straight and narrow I never notice anything else. I never stray far from you and yet when I finally feel as though I am free... you’re back. You never leave my side. The amount of anxiety, fear and depression you’ve given me is crippling. I go out to restaurants or in public and the discussion of you always pops up. Yet, because I have fat that’s the reason I have it. That’s the reason I have you. But then I have to explain to the ignorance that I got YOU from my dad by genetic inheritance! I was eleven! I was diagnosed and didn’t know how much you made people suffer. I thought my dad was just mean. But I truly understand now. Just take it backwards. I want to apologize. I hate you diabetes and I don’t have to accept anything. I don’t have to be a happy person with a disability who sings around and is always positive like a Disney character. I get to be angry. I get to be sad. I get to be me.
Sincerely,
A person who didn’t have a choice. .
