I had my post-op appointment this morning and it went well! No problems and everything looked good. 😊
I can't wait until I can get back to exercising and start on my strength training! My fiancé is already eating healthy and working out, so it will be great to finally join him. 😊 While he is already ready for a 5k (to make it with a good pace for each mile), I definitely am not. 😂
Do any of you guys run virtual 5ks? Any great ones that you would recommend? Right now I have looked into runDisney and Hogwarts Running Club, and I plan to do one later this year!
There’s nothing quite like a good old dose of emotional stress or trauma to boost autoimmunity and increase those chronic pain levels! You can go for a while feeling pretty okay and living relatively pain free, sometimes even forgetting that there’s anything wrong with you at all, but then something happens that rocks your world and you come crashing back down again. Such is life I suppose though... You just have to keep riding the waves and live for those blissful moments of calm! 🌊🏄🏼♀️

I hate complaining to you guys but I feel so tired and so done. Right now, I’m making a list and I’m forcing myself find any and every little thing that either makes me smile (or has ever made me smile), and I am writing it all down so that I can remind myself how much I have to be thankful for. ✨📝✨ #Depression just smacked me in the face for no good reason. Again. I’ve fought off this lying dog many times before (does it ever really go away?)...but I’m tired and so sick of hurting in all of the ways a person can hurt (physically, emotionally, mentally). 😓 Right now, in my notes, I am thankful for my easy evening, preceded by a nap, along with the cool blue TV light glowing on my quiet kiddos’ sweet faces ....they were cuddling with me and watching a movie in my bed. #spooniemamaFTW

Enjoying the 70 degree weather outdoors before the predicted snow showers on Sunday!
My sister and I didn't walk as long as I wanted to since my joints weren't cooperating, but we still had a good time!
It's been a rough week...who am I kidding? It's been a rough year. I don't talk about what life is like for me with chronic conditions. I don't like to dwell in the negative nor do I like to be seen as though I'm asking for pity. But sometimes, sitting is too hard on my body. Sometimes I'd go to the hospital if I thought they could help. Sometimes everything hurts and the fatigue is just too much. And that when I rest. Because some days are like that...even in Australia. #chronicillness#spoonie#uctd#lcss#raynauds#GERD#slapouttaspoons
This is a pic ‘before’ first symptoms of Diffuse Scleroderma took hold 2006 ...
Before Sclero took over my body, I had it all, athletic body, amazing hair, I was fit and healthy, blessed to have given natural birth to 3 beautiful babies, but I was so stuck & consumed with self hate and loathing, that I just couldn’t see it, nor could I feel gratitude for it!
