Sexaayyyy... These masks are coming in handy... πŸ˜‚I've been ill all week with a virus, spent the last couple of days on a strict drug, water and vitamin regime so am feeling a bit better but thought I'd wear this on the road trip to a celebration of life festival so I don't cough on the girls in the car 😝 #itsacrohnslife #facemask #sickgirl #chronicillness #roadtrip

When Chronic Fatigue flirts with the Flu (bloody hussey) 🀀😲😒 At least I know my immunosuppressants are working though...right? πŸ˜‚ #itsacrohnslife #pandaeyes #immunosuppressed #chronicallyfooked #cotchinwithmycatblanket

I know u all have seen post that I have been working out a bit and getting to a healthier me well it's time to change my diet as well. It's not that I always eat unhealthy but I do tend to over do it on the condiments and empty calories, not to mention I like to eat and eat more then a normal portion size. When I am sick in a flare I am unable to eat & if I do eat it, I can't keep it down. So when I can eat I do & I eat as much and whatever I want. It's the little things. Something I enjoy more then I should. Trying to condition myself back to a healthy eating habit. Also learning what my body will b ok with! With crohns, a healthy diet isn't exactly healthy for u! Here's to new ventures! 🍸#cheers #crohnie #crohnswarrior #spoonie #chrinicallyawesome #chronicallyill #itsacrohnslife #livelifebeautiful #healthyme

Listening to music to relax. I've been dealing with a lot of stress lately and I'm just trying to maintain a positive attitude and not drown xp if anyone likes rock or rockish type music I highly recommend this song/band. I just recently started listening and I love them so far β™₯. #itsacrohnslife #crohnsdisease #crohns #IBD #autoimmunedisease #stressed #justkeepswimming #ourlastnight #scaredofchange #music

This is soooo me!! 🀣😴@Regrann from @itsacrohnslife - Absolute spoonie feels πŸ˜‚ "yea do you have more energy in me morning or evenings?" Me: 😳 hahaha I made it through yoga tonight though πŸ’ͺ🏼 it was tough and I had to do a few on the easier poses/ pretend I just needed to sort out my top or hair πŸ˜‚ but it has definitely made me feel better having a scheduled bit of exercise as opposed to trying to motivate myself at other times/ postpone everything until 'later' because I feel rubbish then realise several weeks have passed... πŸ™ˆ doing a bit of scheduled exercise that your body can handle can honestly make such a difference, even just to your mood a self confidence 😊 #itsacrohnslife #exhaustedpigeon #funny #aintthatthetruth #spoonielife #chronicpain #chronicillness #crohns #crohnsdisease #chronicfatigue #cfs #me #fibromyalgia #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #yoga #exercise #crohnswarrior #chronicwarrior #healingjourney

I had a lovely day yesterday celebrating this beautiful couples wedding. After 15 years of friendship I got to witness a wonderful friend marrying her soulmate ❀️ I loved all the little details and the amazing car 😍 I made it through to the end (with the help of my comfy wedged shoes that seem to be coming out all the time I need some heels) and enjoyed some yummy veggie food and even a bit of dancing #wedding #love #friendship #itsacrohnslife #spoonielife #joy

πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Remember this when you're worried that you are being a little too honest or too forthcoming. It is your story and you have a right to talk about it if you want to, and you have a right to feel any feelings you have. It can be hard to learn to share your story when it includes pain, loneliness, angst, worry and a heap of other emotions but we are all in this together and sharing might be really helping someone else, even if they don't tell you it is. If sharing my story has helped one person then that would make the journey of learning to share it all so worthwhile ❀️ stay strong spoonies and look out for each other πŸ’š #itsacrohnslife #chronicillness #crohnicpain #shareyourstory

For when you need dinner in under 10 minutes (including boiling some water) πŸ™‹πŸΌ gnocchi, which takes like 3 minutes, mixed with hummus and a dash of sweet chilli, a load of spinach mixed in with the gnocchi once drained, but back in the hot pan so it wilts, then topped with lots of black pepper and I topped with my vegan 'parm' which is made from nutritional yeast, walnuts and garlic πŸ˜‹ so good and so quick for when the fatigue is a little too much πŸ’š #itsacrohnslife #quickcooking #gnocchi #spinach #hummus #yesitsathing #vegan #veganfoodshare #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #crohns #crohnsdisease #cfs #me #fibromyalgia #invisibleillness #spoonie

Make up can work wonders πŸ˜‚ on a serious note it is important for everyone to realise that how people look, or sometimes even how they say they are, is likely not a reflection of how they feel. Looking well on the outside, doesn't mean someone is not in tremendous pain on the inside, physically or emotionally. You seeing someone acting normal for an hour or posting pictures of them having fun does not mean you have any clue what the rest of the hours in their day are spent doing or spent feeling. People in so much pain always seem to be able to plaster on a smile for the rest of the world. It is so important not to judge on appearance. On a slightly different matter I've learnt recently that no matter how amazing and beautiful you think a person is, to the point you might even be a bit intimidated by them, it is almost guaranteed that they don't feel that confident or beautiful, and when you get to know people you realise that they are all full of their own insecurities and worries, it's human nature, and we could all do with more positivity and love so start spreading it wherever you can ❀️ back to pain... I've been using so many natural tools to alleviate my pain and create better health and hardly ever take my prescription pain killers anymore, that doesn't mean I don't struggle, I've just worked hard to find alternatives because I don't like the side effects of the drugs I've been given. A lot of drugs are synthetic synthesised versions of something in nature, the natural versions might involve more effort, they just don't have all the side effects of other chemicals and they don't fund big drug companies! For some people prescription drugs seem the only way and of course they can be so helpful, but it is always worth researching alternatives if there is a possibility that you could have a better quality of life ❀️ I am also going on a Fibromyalgia management course soon and am interested what techniques and ideas are shared!

Today's feels... when you've been doing a lot more than usual because your body hasn't been holding you back too much, but that actually means you are completely drained when you do get home and you just have to rest... plus doing thing always seems to mean I make more of a mess getting ready πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ I had to spend a lot of energy yesterday cleaning up poo and sick from my poorly dog and need to work out what's wrong with her πŸ˜” but could do with someone tidying and cleaning for me in the mean time πŸ™ˆ #itsacrohnslife #goals #wishlist #cleaning #youvegottolaugh #chronicpain #chronicillness #crohns #crohnsdisease #cfs #me #fibromyalgia #invisibleillness #autoimmunedisease #healingjourney #chronicwarrior #crohnswarrior

I had a lovely weekend with some amazing friends watching a very special couple tie the knot πŸ’žI didn't catch the bouquet but I'm sure I'll still be in the running at the next wedding I go to so there's always another chance πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ haha it was so nice to feel well enough to actually enjoy myself, I definitely had one too many drinks for the first time in a long time, and have been feeling the effects but it was all worth it πŸ™ˆ #itsacrohnslife #weddingvibes #singlelife #ididntcatchthebouquet #love #friendship #healingjourney #toomuchwine #crohns #crohnsdisease #chronicillness #chronicpain #cfs #me #fibromyalgia #chronicwarrior #crohnswarrior

Sorry I haven't posted on this account for a while- I've been feeling quite well, with only short flare ups, and I have been posting a lot on my personal page @mtcallaway I have spent months researching and completely changing my diet to try to reduce my inflammation and control my symptoms which has worked really well. I'm still unwell most days but I have actually had some energy to go out a live life a bit more, I understand that I may have bad days following days out, but it seems worth it as I've been able to enjoy some of my days and nights out, which wasn't the case a year ago. I am currently doing a 30 days to healthy living program which cuts out all allergens and toxins including meat, dairy (which I don't eat anyway) gluten, soy, processed foods, added sugars, caffeine and alcohol, and I have been feeling even better on it! I have been eating some raw food which has made me feel amazing after a few days of perseverance as I've been giving my body so many great nutrients. However, I wouldn't have been able to complete this plan a year ago with active Crohns and the state of my body, and so I have found that it is so important to make gradual changes to your diet to reduce your own inflammation in your guts and whole body. What we eat can really make a huge difference to our lives but it is a fine line when you already have an autoimmune disease as some healthy foods can cause flare ups if you suddenly change your diet. Gradual changes and playing the long game has really worked for me and many others. Obviously this photo isn't gluten free but it was from a day, during the 30 days to healthy living plan, that I had alcohol and a baguette at a festival day with my best friends, sometimes we slip up and that's ok, and sometimes we just need yummy simple carbs (although there are great healthier options like this) πŸ˜‹ this was the avocado, olive tapenade, roasted tomatoes, pine nuts, basil, rocket and lemon baguette and it was yummy 😝 thanks to my hand model @stace.mjh as my wristband was upside down. We were at #festifeel for #coppafeel which reminds people to know their bodies and their normal and to check their boobs regularly- so go do it now!

With life comes constant ups and downs, especially if you are living with any kind of disease, chronic illness, pain or any kind of adversity. However, I have been learning that there are so many different ways to reprogram your brain, how you think and how you feel in situations. Personal development is such an important tool in helping you through this life and I have chosen to surround myself with people who encourage this personal development and can bring out my positive mindset which can make life a little easier. This is not to say by any means that we have to be positive all the time, sometimes there is so much going on that anyone would struggle to be positive about, and it is perfectly ok to feel the emotions, to scream, to cry, but allowing yourself to settle with those emotions will only cause you more harm. We have the choice to better ourselves, better our minds, better our hearts and find gratitude and peace even in the most difficult times. Make a commitment to yourself to live your best life, don't compare it to anyone else, don't beat yourself up for the days you feel down and sad and angry, allow yourself to feel those feelings, just don't allow yourself to live there πŸ’š#itsacrohnslife #mondaymotivation #neverstoplearning #neverstoploving #personaldevelopment #keepreading #keepgrowing #chronicpain #chronicillnesses #crohns #crohnsdisease #cfs #me #fibromyalgia #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #spoonie #spoonielife #chronicwarrior #crohnswarrior

Throwback to last weeks nap in the park. Dirty trainers on for an animal rights march and then a lie down was needed before going to meet some friends for dinner! I'm glad it was sunny as I'm not sure where I would have got my lie down otherwise πŸ˜‚ although I did get a drink and slouch on a sofa after this too which was good as I keep pushing myself at the moment 😝 #itsacrohnslife #london #lovelondon #parklife #trees #naptime #liedown #pushingmyself #vans #sunshine #chronicpain #chronicillness #crohns #crohnsdisease #fibromyalgia #cfs #me #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #spoonie #spoonielife

Sainsbury's did good with this one, convenient, full of veg and yummy. Freshly cooked food is always best nutritionally but you can't always cook as a spoonie so having some yummy easy meals can be really helpful. #itsacrohnslife #veganfoodshare #convinience #easymeal #spoonielife #stillgottoeat #yummy #whatveganseat #vegan #formyhealth #fortheanimals #fortheplanet #formysoul #healingjourney #chronicillness #chronicpain #crohns #crohnsdisease #cfs #me #fibromyalgia #spoonie #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #chronicwarrior

You don't need to compare what you are going through to anyone else's journey. It's great to see the positives in situations but you don't have to downplay your own pain just because someone else in the world has it worse. There will always be someone else worse off, it doesn't change your situation but we can use our situations to help each other and keep each other going. Chronic illnesses are constant but they also have phases of bad and worse or relatively good and sometimes how bad a situation is can depend on our mindset and how long we've been strong for. I can go for weeks with terrible symptoms and just get on with it or I can have a mix of good days and bad days and a bad moment can break me. Don't let it consume you but also don't feel you can't get your story out there and you can't sometimes think to yourself- this is pretty shitty. Whatever happens we will always lift each other up, spoonies, let's do this πŸ’ͺ🏻 #itsacrohnslife #chronicillnesssecret #chronicpain #chronicillness #crohns #crohnsdisease #cfs #me #fibromyalgia #fibromyalgiasucks #autoimmunedisease #spoonie #spoonielife

Throwback photo- dogs can be amazing company when you are not feeling well... yes that's the toilet πŸš½πŸ˜‚ this was a couple of months ago and was the last time I was sick specifically after food... which is amazing as it was really frequent before that!

Sometimes cous cous is needed... its so easy to cook as you literally boil a kettle and pour it over the top- I don't know how I forgot about it for so long when I was thinking about convenient foods! πŸ™ˆ and you can quickly cook up (or use cold foods) whatever and chuck it in like red pepper, chick peas and spinach, not forgetting a dollop of red pepper hummus πŸ˜‹ #itsacrohnslife #convenientfood #easyfood #plantbased #couscous #spinach #chickpeas #redpepper #hummus #hummusislife #vegan #formyhealth #forallthereasons #chronicpain #chronicillness #lunchtime #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat

This was me last night... but at 8pm πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ buttttt I got through an incredible weekend. I went on two separate animal rights marches in London and managed to socialise with two groups of friends as well and even stayed one night in a hostel. Sunday I was walking around London like a zombie before heading home but I feel like a 'normal' person would be a bit like that anyway 😝 I have definitely triggered some kind of flare so I am resting up today and hoping it won't last too long! It was worth it though 😊 #itsacrohnslife #stillarockstar #earlynight #painrelief #flareup #animalrights #london #plantbased #vegan #chronicpain #chronicillness #crohns #crohnsdisease #cfs #me #fibromyalgia #chronicwarrior #crohnswarrior #fibromyalgiawarrior
