Sorry for the long overdo update. Recently I've been diagnosed with ADHD inattentive. The meds for it are really helping out with schooling and driving. Oh and I got my drivers license! Finally! I know, I know, I'm 19. Due to being in the hospital so much last year, I just couldn't do it. I've made new friends and I go to a new, wonderful, church. Things have been pretty good on the health front. I've completed my new year's resolution! It was to not be hospitalized at all this year! I'm excited for Christmas. This year, I will finally be able to enjoy a non stressful, peaceful Christmas. What are you doing for Christmas? If you don't celebrate Christmas, what holiday do you celebrate? Last night I babysat 5 kids for 6&1/2 hours! It was an amazing feat. It was very humbling to be able to spend time with such wonderful kids and bond with them. I've been singing in the worship team at my church. It's something I look forward to every week. I have two classes left before I graduate! Right now I'm taking physics. It's so difficult but I have a wonderful tutor whom I love spending time with. I also joined a small group, we call it a 5/9 group at my church.

Day 5: a picture of an item that brings you hope.

So I know that a dog is an animal and not an item, but this little man is one of my biggest hope beacons. His name is Romeo Pineapple and he's such an inspiration. He's one of my two spoonie pups. He has chronic dislocations of most of his joints, spondylosis of the lower spine, arthritis, and chronic constipation. He never ceases to amaze me. We have the same triggers and he's so strong. He never fails to wag that tail of his despite being in pain.
Therefore, he's my hope beacon. If he can do it, then maybe, just maybe, I have a chance.

Day 4: favorite quote and why.
My favorite quote is actually a Bible verse. Isaiah 41:10. It means a lot to me. It really gives me hope. This verse in particular keeps me grounded when I'm struggling. God's never going to give up on me. 💚

Day 3: Ways to cope with pain.

If you ask any of my friends, they would tell you that I'm great at coping with pain. Lately? I've been struggling a lot.
My 5 best tips for coping with pain:

1. Taking a bath with Epsom salts and pain essential oils.
2. Watch Netflix (something that is either scarier than the pain or something that you can get lost in but don't mind if you don't pay attention to the whole thing)
3. Pain creams, sprays, patches, oils, pills, aromatherapy, etc.
4. Reach out to a friend and let them know you are struggling.
5. Self care: face masks, baths, paint your nails, put on some makeup, watch your favorite movie, do arts and crafts, sing to your favorite song, etc.
Most importantly remember that you are loved and worth life. ~Gabriela~

Day 2: a picture of someone you like to spend most of your time with and why.
This is my nephew. I love him so much. He's always so sweet to me. He 5 and he knows how to read me. When I'm having a bad pain flare, he says things like "pain go away!" And "can I rub it and make you feel better" or "it's okay, we can just watch YouTube if you don't feel good." He's my soul, my passion, the best little man someone could ever ask for. He picks me up everytime I fall down and even sacrifices his Lego's to cheer me up. He's the best.

Happy CRPS awareness month!
Day 1: A picture of you, introduce yourself.. for the picture, swipe.
Hello! I'm Gabriela. I'm a 19 year old nurse to be and current actress. I also happen to be a spoonie. I've been sick for a long time and have racked up a lot of diagnoses along the way. BUT, no matter what, I will keep fighting.
Tell me about you! #spooniethoughts #randomthoughts #insomnia #psychosis #misophonia #crps #rsd #chronicallyill #chronicpain #chronicillness #nervepain #pain #homeschool #model #photoshoot #anxiety #panicdisorder #hallucinations #photographer #illness #chronicallyfabulous #meds #medicine #ypcistrong #spoonie #spoons #ferociousfighters

Sorry for being absent for a while. I've been pushing myself to do more than I have in a long time. I wore jeans for 12 hours the other day, an accomplishment I haven't been able to do for years! I also rode a bike for the first time in about 3 years yesterday. Sadly, my depression has been a lot worse and I can't seem to get out of this funk. I'm thinking about starting a YouTube channel for vlogging and singing. Would anyone subscribe? ***Gabriela*** #spooniethoughts #randomthoughts #insomnia #psychosis #misophonia #crps #rsd #chronicallyill #chronicpain #chronicillness #nervepain #pain #homeschool #model #photoshoot #anxiety #panicdisorder #hallucinations #photographer #illness #chronicallyfabulous #meds #medicine #ypcistrong #spoonie #spoons

Lately I haven't been able to sleep much or well. I wake up frequently and can't fall back asleep due to my mind and body racing. My legs have this odd sensation that makes me want to run. Then, the pain sets it. My mind on the other hand races like in this picture's paragraph. I can't stop thinking of anything and everything. Yet my mind is blank. I exhaust myself with thinking. The only way I can go to sleep is if I go for a run or some type of exercise. Plus pain meds and some anxiety meds. I also have insomnia. I wonder if the two are mutually exclusive.

I'm totally wiped from vacation and then the concert I took my father to for fathers day. Then I went out to roam the town with a friend and we walked about 10 miles. I also found out that I have a double ear infection. So new meds for that. New meds for psychosis. Etc.

Man. What a long weekend. Yesterday I woke up and started my journey of a 12 hour drive to visit some friends for vacation. Well the plan was to leave at 9am. We left at noon due to some medical snafus that are now resolved. Kind of. I'll update on that later. Well the 12-14 hour car ride was rough on my body but I made it. Today I met up with one of my best friends, Alayna, @spoonie.alayna . It was amazing to see her. I then went to the beach and out to eat. Tomorrow I wake up real early to meet another friend @spoonless.kareboo . I'll be sure to update you all on how much fun that is. Then the rest of the week is spent being a tourist and seeing Alayna.
Goodnight all! #psychosis #misophonia #crps #rsd #chronicallyill #chronicpain #chronicillness #nervepain #pain #homeschool #model #photoshoot #anxiety #panicdisorder #hallucinations #photographer #illness #chronicallyfabulous #meds #medicine #ypcistrong #spoonie #spoons

Summer is so busy for me. Luckily I'm able to participate in activities such as Bible study and swimming. I may not be able to do the activity in the same way as others or as long as them but I do it and that's all that matters.

Today I got up at 8:30 am and went to church and a bunch of grad parties. I then accompanied my dad to Lowe's. It was fun but exhausting. I have negative spoons now. Congrats to all the new graduates and soon to be graduates! #graduation #graduationparty #psychosis #misophonia #crps #rsd #chronicallyill #chronicpain #chronicillness #nervepain #pain #homeschool #model #photoshoot #anxiety #panicdisorder #hallucinations #photographer #illness #chronicallyfabulous #meds #medicine #ypcistrong #spoonie #spoons

Today I went to a graduation party and tried to teach my little sister how to swim. It was fun but exhausting. Spoonies can have lives, I'm living proof! Although it did take all my spoons. #pool #swimming #teachinghowtoswim #psychosis #misophonia #crps #rsd #chronicallyill #chronicpain #chronicillness #nervepain #pain #homeschool #model #photoshoot #anxiety #panicdisorder #hallucinations #photographer #illness #chronicallyfabulous #meds #medicine #ypcistrong #spoonie #spoons

For my psychosis, I take Rexulti. I recently had to up my dose from 3mg to 4mg. 4mg is the highest dose so I'm praying this works and I won't have to start a new medication.

Today was pretty rough on my pain levels as my body isn't absorbing my meds properly. But I still managed to make myself look nice and go out.

With CRPS, your affected body parts swell and can have different colors or temperature. I have full body CRPS, meaning I have CRPS in every nerve.

Today my pain is out of control and I'm super dizzy. I want to do school but having a laptop on my legs right now would be a bad idea. Ask me anything about me or my health. I'll answer honestly.

This also happens with CRPS, something I have.
