And my surprise birthday trip this year is going back to where we got married 😍 it's so lovely pottering around and remembering being here. Well done @lil_ryno27 you did very well 😘 #Rushtonhall#married#birthday#surprise
That poor girl in the middle... I'm so glad I managed to save her. I'm so glad I don't have photos from when I was at my lowest weight. I'm so glad I don't have those to look back on, to see the torture my body went through. This girl in the middle, when it all started to get worse, she was small enough; too small. I'm glad I managed to save her. Each time I've been on holiday since the holiday I went on in the middle photo, I've gotten healthier, stronger, happier; I've gotten me back. Please, if you're struggling with recovery right now, I promise you that things get better. When this photo was taken and for many years after, I didn't believe there was any hope of getting better. But if you want it, if you work for it, if you fight with ever little millimetre of your being, you WILL get there. I promise you, you will 🌿

I've gotten in the habit of tricking myself by telling myself everyday that I'm not sick and trying to ignore each and every little pain that I have. And honestly, sometimes it works. But then there are days like today, where no matter how hard I pretend that I'm not "sick" or that my normal is now different from that of everyone else I know, where I just can't trick myself. Fibromyalgia fucking sucks. It sucks every ounce of energy from you, makes every bone, muscle, and fiber of your being ache so bad that the thought of any amount of Tylenol even coming close to touching that pain is laughable. It's waking up in the middle of the night because your back hurts after already waking up 7 other times because sleeping, although you feel like you could sleep for a week, is near impossible. It's getting your 5th headache of the week when it's only Tuesday. It's taking a gazillion pills that DON'T EVEN WORK. It's doctor's appoint after doctor's appointment. It's calling in sick to work, if you even can work. It's canceling plans with friends over, and over, and over again until eventually they quit calling. It's when you're on your honeymoon at the beach and you have to spend half of it in bed because you physically cannot take another step. It's hearing your husband say, "it's ok, I understand", for the 1,000,000th time and you wonder if the time will come when he stops understanding. It's a loss of self confidence and self love. It's dark and it's consuming. And you try to remember a time when you didn't hurt and you weren't tired all the time but you can't. Fibromyalgia becomes your world. And it was mine for too long because I gave it power. This is my new normal. And if you live a life like mine I encourage you to take the reigns back. Fibromyalgia took so much from me. I am slowly trying to take back what I can, and one thing I can and will take is my attitude. I choose what I give power to and I refuse to let it affect my spirit anymore.
😢 8 out of 10 Americans are #overweight#Diabetes - 29.1 million, 9.3% of population (1 in 10 suffer, in 35 short years, this number will be 1 in 3 Americans!)
#HighCholesterol -17% of population (1 in 6 adults)
#ChronicPain - 100 million (1 in 10)
#Arthritis - 52.5 million (1 in 5)
3Neuropathy - 80 million cases
#Autoimmune Disease - Up to 50 million Americans suffer 😀😀Plexus Slim was co-developed by two scientists whose desire was to create a 🌾🌱 #plantbased consumable product for reducing their need for diabetic medication/insulin. In the clinical trial, they found that the diabetics were reporting back that they had better daytime #energy , they were #sleepingbetter at night, their #bloodsugars balanced out to normal in that they were no longer needing their medication 💊💊, they had a #reducedappetite , lost their desire for sugar, they no longer needed their cholesterol or blood pressure medication AND as a side effect – they were #losingweight .
Plexus slim is for everyone! So glad I found these products and company!!!!! 😍😁🙌🙌
What people see is someone who has had a trip into town and the hair dressers and then went to pick her kids up from school. What people don't see is the excruciating pain, draining anxiety and consequent fatigue. I won't get a chance for downtime this evening so it's fish fingers and chips for supper and lots of cartoons on the telly. Pleased with my lovely new hair colour though and treated myself to a new lipstick. 💄💋💇🏼#invisibleillness#chronicpain#invisibledisability#eds#fatigue#heds#hypermobility

A fellow #Warrior was gifted this in California and loved it so much that they felt it was something I had to try. They weren't wrong. With #Lupus and #Fibro one of my greatest challenges is #chronicpain and how to treat it. Between the two, my #flares become a vicious cycle of joint and muscle pain which lead to #painsomnia and thus, worse symptoms. This salve from @deja.root has changed the game on pain relief. I won't lie, when I first tried it I thought it would be like IcyHot and fade quickly. Instead, I had hours of true relief. When it started to wear off, my returning pain was less than before. But my greatest shock came a few days ago. I got one of my dreaded #fibroheadaches and it was peaking. In pure frustration I applied a small amount over my brows and temples (be careful if you try this, there is peppermint oil in it and you're near your eyes... you're welcome)... within minutes my headache was GONE! This stuff got rid of my headache! Seriously blown away. It is all natural using beeswax and oils and infused with 400mg CBD, 200mg THC and emu oil and ginger... all of which are great for #inflammation and pain. This product has me so blown away that I want to bring it to the East Coast. If you suffer from #chronicpain this is a product you seriously need to consider having on your shelf. And don't let the jar size fool you, this stuff will last. I've been basically applying it to most of my body for over a week with this flare and I've barely made a dent. It spreads like oil and you just need a small finger dab for a whole joint. Applies smoothly and dries quickly for use anywhere. Major props to @deja.root for making a product that will help #Warriors everywhere.
I will be going LIVE in my Facebook Support Group today at 2pm Central to discuss Lyme Disease: what symptoms look like (it may not be what you think!), treatment options, testing, coping, and HOPE!
If you are currently struggling with chronic illness, I highly recommend tuning in as so many diagnoses for illnesses with no known cause are actually caused by Lyme Disease: think MS, ALS, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, IBS, depression and more ... To join the group and this live class, use the link below and request to join:
You can also find the group by searching on Facebook under "Healthy Home Body Support Group". See you then!
When Bethany got a Port for IV fluid therapy no one assigned her a Dr. knowledgeable in Port care.
The local cancer center came in handy when the home health care nurses seemed at a lost, but a Dr. was still needed for any emergency.
Thanks to a proactive and caring Dr at an urgent care we trust, Bethany was referred to an Oncologist. These doctors understand Ports the best and can help answer questions about care or function.
Now we have established care with this Dr. so if ever we have questions about the Port we have someone to go to. We only wished we would had done this even before or soon after the Port placement.
We're so glad for the nice consultations and doctors that come our way. It builds our confidence and trust.

The piriformis muscle can create a lot of issues if it's tight, including sciatic pain.
"Piriformis Syndrome" is actually a thing and what is at the root cause of a lot of sciatic pain. Using hip mobility drills can open up the hip capsule and help relive tension on the sciatic nerve.
Even if sciatic pain isn't something you're dealing with, this can be beneficial to counteract daily sitting.
Try it out and let me know what you think!
•"You're the shadow shadow lurking in me
and the lunatic light waiting in that shadow.
Ghostwriter of my half-life, intention's ambush
I can't prepare for, ruthless whammy
you have me ogling a blinding sun,
my right eye naked even with both lids closed—
glowering sun, unerring navigator
around this darkened room, you're my laser probe,
I'm your unwilling wavelength,
I can never transcend your modus operandi,
I've given up trying to outsmart you,
and the new thinking says I didn't invent you—
whatever you were to me I've outgrown,
I don't need you, but you're tenacity embodied,
tightening my skull, my temple, like plastic wrap."•-Gail Mazur • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
