What a day it has been. Surgery went well, had a bit of a rough time in recovery though. I had a full ACL reconstruction using an allograft, the fraying of my lateral meniscus trimmed, and also some cartilage trimmed. I'm definitely worn out, but I'm hanging in best I can. This ice machine is definitely a huge help. Right now I'm focusing on trying to manage the pain and desperately trying to get over the nauseousness that has been taking over all day. For more I'm going to see if I can have a little soup, get this headache to die down, and get some rest.

Well after 3 long months, my ACL reconstruction surgery is bright and early tomorrow morning. Crazy how the last month has just flown by. I'll be completely honest, I've truly felt pretty low and defeated several times the last few months due to more than one reason. But I'm doing my best to remind myself this isn't where my story ends. It's just not. I've got fight left, I've got a future to work for. This is one step towards getting my body, while still learning more about what my body is and is not capable of with EDS. So, send your positive thoughts my way tomorrow, let's get this ball rolling. Because baby, I've got things to do!

Derpy photo I know but I'm just going to my echocardiogram appointment! I hope all goes well but seeing as I have a heart murmur, it's best they check it out. Heart murmurs seem to be very common in people with EDS.

I have been fighting some kind of virus, which means all my #EDS inflammation symptoms are through the roof. (Immune Overreaction ain't just a great indie band.) #Arlo has never been a huge cuddler--he had a bad childhood before we adopted him, so he expresses affection by sitting near loved ones. But when I am in the middle of a big #flareup, Arlo overcomes any fears and snuggles me. 🐾 Right now he is sleeping with his head in my lap. Took this one right before he dozed off. #Arlothepit #pitbullmix #pets #family #love#safety #EDSiii #EDS3 #hypermobility #fibro #fibromyalgia #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #ehlersdanlostype3 #adoptdontshop #chronicallyill #spoonie #zebra #rescuedogsofinstagram ❤🐾❣️

Christmasing at Mom and Dad's. I am resting and enjoying the ambiance #EDSprerogative while the family watches football, bakes #Christmas goodies, and wraps presents. #christmas2016 #chronicchristmas #EDSiii #carla #holidays #2016 #christmastreelights #christmastree

Took a little window of no vertigo and low pain to hang some of the ornaments I made last year. As you can see, Elf 💚is well represented. #paper #papercraft #ornaments #christmas #christmasornaments #elf #movies #music #christmas2016 #christmasmovies #stars #claradoxical #carla #christmas #christmastree #chronicchristmas #pots #edsiii #zebra #spooniestrong

I have been enduring a bad flare up for several days now, that awful feeling of my body just breaking down. #Arlothepitbull knows that he is too heavy, that being on me or against me will hurt. #Arlo also shows worry about my inflammation by staring at me. Hard core staring. This is his head propped at the end of my recliner.
Sometimes a #spoonie + #zebra needs a good stare. #illness #chronicillness #EDSiii #EDS #fibro #fibromyalgia #pain #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #pets #dogs #family #love #pitbullsofinstagram #pitbulls

As a hypermobile #zebra, I really can't do my nails: As a zebra with skin fragility, I should not do my nails. Mom to the rescue--manipedi. I chose an autumnal color--dark purple-brown-burgundy fall love fest. Encouraging low temperatures with my fingers and toes.
Polish is Opi's "Lincoln Park After Dark". #manipedi #manicure #autumn #autumn2016 #carla #carlaclaradox #ifeelpretty 💅🏼 #bujo #lists #handwriting #cursive #EDS #fibromyalgia #EDSiii #chronicallyme #OPI

It's officially been 8 years since I was first diagnosed with EDS III. I can't say having medical conditions is fun in the slightest, especially when it brings on many more, however, I can definently say that having the actual diagnosis in writing has helped tremendously, rather then hindered what I can do😋 Bring it on #EDSIII #justneededaphotoforInsta #whatever

This is where Blackberries go to retire: they take on second carriers as cardiac specialists. This cell phone (and its old school leather hip holster) came part and parcel with my heart monitor; it communicates with the monitoring company for me. #upcycling I call the monitor #Buffy because she protects me, and the BB #Giles because he nags both me and Buffy (Charge me! Don't go too far away from me! Report unusual events immediately!)--and is older than Buffy. @sarahmgellar 🕶 #chroniclife #fightlikeagirl #chronicillness #zebralife #EDS #cardiology #heart #medical #EDSiii #hypermobility #zebra #spoonie #chronicpain #buffythevampireslayer #myheart #carla #carlaclaradox ❤️ #ifwesharethereisnoshame

I am having difficulty completing the disability questions for my attorney to file the appeal with the court because of this extra 54 pound growth on my knee. Bullitis piticus, I think it's called, and it compels me to rub it constantly. #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram #pitbulllife (This is a huge deal. Our goofy rescue had a rough childhood. Although he is very sweet and loving, he is not generally a cuddler.) #love #pets #family #Arlo #arloguthriethedog #arlothedog #polkadottedpit #adoptdontshop (I really do need to finish my medical updates and this actually hurts my knee but you try saying no to this) #spoonie #zebra #eds #edsiii #eds3 #fibro #fibromyalgia #ehlersdanlossyndrome #chronicillness

Audiobooks = medication. Arm surgery yesterday, so normal #EDS & #fibro pain exacerbated in hand & arm. Being read to is just the comfort needed. Dark room, soft blankets & pillows, & a cracking good @audible_com forensics/medical mystery set in the Middle Ages. (and pain meds, let's be honest) #audible #audiblebooks #audiobooks #bookstagram #reading #readingselfie #horror #carlaclaradox #spoonie #zebra #EDS #EDSiii #EDS3 #hypermobility #fibromobility #selfcare #restandrecuperation #arianafranklin #1stinbookseries #ifwesharethereisnoshame

Have you ever bought yourself a stuffed animal? I'm about to turn 37 and I just did. The Zebra is the mascot for Eihlers-Danlos Syndrome because we are the hidden disease that doctors are told not to assume we have. Most people are horses...but we are a horse of a different color.
I bought my zebra because I need a little companion for when the pain is bad and especially when I go through some of the painful procedures to help gain strength.
But she needs a good name!! Suggestions?!
