Even on holiday there is no excuse to better yourself! Because of #lipoedema I might not have the most toned body but this body is mine. My body has been through so much and I’m still standing tall I’m still strong and I still fight against the odds. #lipoedema #lipedema #chronicillness #bodypositivity #bodypositive #naturesplayground #fitnessoutdoors #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney

Starting the week with happy & tired feet. 😊 Mondays are so much more enjoyable when the weekend was spent outside with friends. 💫
Some days I feel absolutely fine, like nothings wrong with me at all and like I’ve never had to face a chronic illness diagnosis. And those days feel incredibly normal. Yesterday was one of those days, until I was out for dinner with some friends and something just did not feel right once the apple pie hit my stomach. I had to rush to the bathroom embarrassingly quick to empty all the contents of dinner into the toilet bowl. In that moment I was reminded that I’m not normal, and to not get “too close to the sun”, relax my eating habits. Because my stomach doesn’t function like everyone else’s and I should never forget that. So today I’ve just been moping around trying to revise and trying to get over that fact. 😔 Anyway, here’s a pretty picture of some flowers my boyfriend got me to cheer me up 💖 🌹 If you ever need someone to talk or rant to feel free to DM/comment. #chronicillness #gastroparesis #notnormal

EPSTEIN BARR VIRUS Last week I posted about how EBV can cause thyroid problems. This tricky virus can lead to a lot of other problems as well like chronic fatigue, MS, and cancers to name a few. Do you know anyone diagnosed with EBV? #thyroiddisease #thyroidhealth #fatigue #hypothyroidism #hashimotos #hypothyroid #hyperthyroid #livewell #chronicfatigue #weightgain #preventativemedicine #populationhealth #functionalmedicine #naturopathicmedicine #wellness #healthandfitness #chronicillness #bewell #tired #empowered #startnow #ebv #epsteinbarrvirus #epsteinbarr #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior
I battle fibromyalgia, day in day out, rain or shine, through thick and thin I am fighting. It's not always easy. Sometimes I just want to lay in my bed and cry. Sometimes I do just lay in bed and cry. That passes though, with care and proper medication usually. Then I dust myself off and get right back to the fight. ⠀ ⠀ I battle fibromyalgia, what's your super power?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ | bystarbysea.com |⠀ #spoonie #spoonieproblems #butyoudontlooksick #chronicinsta #chronicillness #chronicpain #fibromyalgia #fibro #fibrofighter #fibrowarrior

I actually believe this is number one and eating for compatibility is critical! They may say this food is good for you and this food does this and this food does that, but it if it is causing inflammation in the body and the body is constantly in recovery mode, the body is never getting ahead when it’s in constant RECOVERY ! Besides....you are what you assimilate and digest.

It’s just one of those days… . There are days when you wake up and feel great and ready to take on the day. Other days, you feel like you could curl up into bed for the rest of the week and not leave. Today is one of those other days 😣😷 . Woke up this morning feeling pretty awful and not very motivated. So, because I have a lot of stuff to work on, I’m going to do it all from bed today. I figure that’s a good compromise for how I’m feeling 🤷🏻‍♀️ Definitely will be continuing to keep hydrated and comfortable while working to make sure I start to feel better ASAP. Hope you all have a terrific Monday! If you feel like I do today, try to save onto some extra spoons 🥄 . . . #coffee #coffeelover #coffeeblogger #caffeinequeen #caffeineplease #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #chronicdisease #chroniclife #rsdcrps #potssyndrome #eds #invisibleillness #mycoplasma #fibromyalgia #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniewarrior #spooniesupport #spoonielove #spoonieblogger #blogger #bloggerlife #bloggerstyle #vegan #glutenfreevegan #crueltyfree #veganeats #glutenfree
Few weeks ago, I was looking for inspiration for art and histamine diet ideas and found this cutie, @connect_the_potsies , surviving and getting it done, with rare #invisibleillness . She is bringing awareness to EDS, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, and POTS, by making and selling a shirt with a quote I fell in love and deeply resonated with. Had to have it! . Please take a look at her profile for the link to the shirt and support if you relate with the message or are curious to learn about these rare conditions. It takes an incredible strength to be young and handling life's obstacles with such grace and determination.. . . . . . . P.s. her little sister has also been diagnosed with these conditions, so take a look at her page info too! . . . . . . . .#chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicpainart #chornicillnesswarrior #eds #edswarrior #edsawareness #heds #mastcellactivationsyndrome #pots #lupuswarriors #spoonieart #spoonielife #histamineintolerance #mcas #mcad #allergictolife #livingdespiteitall #rupikaur #rupikaurquotes #spoonieart #cantstopwontstoppainting
Fun fact... the nurse missed my vein when putting in this cannula so my doctor had to put a second one in my other hand 😭 Curse you tiny veins!

Thought I’d share what I’m currently reading. I love reading ‘adult’ books, but they’re harder when you have brain fog. I’m reading the Iliad, but it’s slow going. Sometimes, some YA is just what you need for an easy read. The stories are just as good, but I find the text simpler and therefore less tiring to get through. What are you currently reading? (Or listening to - audiobooks are great too!) - - - - - - - - #chronicillness #chronicallyliving #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #chronicallyill #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniestrong #spooniebookworm #bookworm #booklover #reader #reading #books #fibrowarrior #fibromyalgia #cfsme #myalgicencephalomyelitis #invisibleillness #ya #yabooks #fantasybooks #incarceron #currentlyreading #positivityoftheday

Yes please 🤗🍒🍉
PROBIOTICS. Need I say more? If you’re a lymie, you should be taking probiotics Every. Single. Day. ESPECIALLY if you’ve ever been on antibiotics, end rant. But seriously, if you’ve ever been on antibiotics, probiotics are key to gut recovery and gut health. They restore beneficial flora to our guts that are lost during antibiotic treatment, help prevent chronic stomach distress and some studies now say that certain strains can alleviate symptoms of depression as well! There’s so much we don’t know yet about the gut microbiome but we know more and more how important having a healthy gut biome is to our overall health. Right now I’m taking Researched Nutritionals soil based probiotic and a women’s health probiotic specific to vaginal health. I’ve also used Klaire Labs brand of probiotics and loved that one as well. I tend to rotate every few months to acquire different strains. Search for a probiotic that has guarantees for number of living organisms and has relatively higher doses and multiple strains (5+ strains and 10+ billion units). Researched Nutritionals is a wonderful brand as well but can only be purchased through a healthcare provider directly. Klaire labs can be purchased on Amazon. This is another supplement that I will never get rid of.

Pain Paintings from the exhibition ‘I Bleed With You’. 🔺🔻🔺🔻🔺🔻 ‘Pain Paintings were a way to use imagery rather than words to describe pain. There is an almost frequency like feel to them, like a seismograph, showing the unpredictability and variedness of pain. The colours evoke images of the body while the textures add to the diverse layers of describing pain. It is only when you lean in closer do the complexities of pain (and the painting) reveal themself fully.’ #ibleedwithyou #alicepartingtonart #periodpositivity #periodpositive #feminist #feministart #painpainting #painart #sickgirlart #chronicillness #artfromillness #powerfulart #endthestigma #endtheshame #endthetaboo #supportwomen #supportqueerartists #supportlivingartists #supportfemaleartists #loveyourflow #menstrationmatters #endperiodshame #endperiodpoverty #artexhibition #artexhibitionbrighton #brightonart #bleedwithpride #beautyfrompain

OOF. There’s a lot going on, huh? Whether you’ve just been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, are trying to navigate the healthcare system to figure out what’s wrong, or are dealing with pesky gut probs...it’s impacting your life. You’re still trying to show up for the people you love, your work, your pets... but there’s fatigue, frustration, and sadness that accompany being chronically ill. . . . I feel you. I was there. Some days I still am. I’ve spent a lot of time wondering “why me?” every time I had to shove an AIP compliant patty in my mouth while everyone else was eating pizza , or didn’t leave the house because I was afraid people would judge the lifestyle choices I had to make to feel better. . . . It’s ok to let this shit break you some days. It really, truly is. But most days, I need you to OWN IT, bend at the knees and lift it up because letting your illness crush you doesn’t make it go away. . . . Whatever is going on in your life right now, I’m here to tell you it’s going to be OK, but only when you choose to get up and keep trying. Keep wading through the waters of your illness no matter how strong the current. . . . Get up. Start the protocol. Schedule an appointment with the doctor. Get a second opinion. Walk, very slowly, to the park and push your kid on the swings. I KNOW that you’re going to get through this and I need you to start believing it, too. Mindset. Is. Everything.
RIP to my gym session because I killed it today! I love starting the week strong. I spent yesterday having a real organisation/cleaning day which set me up for a good start today. I got woken up at 7:30 by my purring alarm clock 🐈 and got myself up to give her her breakfast. My mini victory today was not going back to sleep after feeding her! I hit the gym and did a solid 2.5h session which is admittedly somewhat excessive but I was in the zone and feeling it. I like to get a really solid session down on Monday so if my energy levels drop through the week I've got that in the bag. I vlogged the sesh for my #sicktofit YouTube series which I will actually get around to editing and posting at some point in this lifetime 😅 I hope ya'll are starting your week out with strong intention and even stronger action! Let's do thisssss! #mondaymotivation
Even if you have a chronic illness, dieting harder is most likely not the answer.⠀ ✨⠀ The dieting harder willpower you do or don’t possess will not be “the one thing” in the end that makes or breaks your path to long-lasting healing. There is a huge percentage of the chronic illness population who have this willpower, and if simply dieting harder were the answer, almost everyone would be healed.⠀ ✨⠀ If a gut-healing protocol/diet helps you feel better, then you know you’re onto something. But you sure as h#$% don’t have to engage in dieting harder to solve every last outstanding problem.⠀ ✨⠀ And there are two main reasons for this. Here is the first:⠀ 1️⃣If you haven’t been appropriately tested (not via Dr. Google), then dieting harder makes no sense. In other words, “What are you dieting harder for?” Isn’t the point of a diet to solve a problem? If you don’t know the problem, you can’t solve it.⠀ ✨⠀ Grab the other main reason + read more via link in my profile today for --> DIETING HARDER⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Find hundreds of gut healing posts via www.agutsygirl.com.

I've received a fair deal of DM's regarding my various "Still sick" updates, and I find it to be only fair that I explain it more openly. As I'm increasing quite an amount of followers and I don't want a disconnect between my followers and me. I rarely openly speak about it, because I still try not to let it define what is me but I've a chronic illness called Ehler-Danlos Syndrome, with this comes a lot of ups and downs. Without going into too much detail on this post about it, it causes me a lot of chronic pains, along with other related issues with my body that I'm in the process of finding a way to handle. I might make a more prominent post about it depending if I feel the need for it or not! But for now, feel free to read up about Ehler-Danlos Syndrome and grow in awareness for it!

Tired of medications not working. Tired of the long list of diagnoses. Tired of feeling bad all of the time. You are struggling hard. . . The world looks at where you are at and what you are going through and whispers to you to give up. Quit. Don't fight. Don't try. It's not worth it. You will never get better. You will always have these struggles... Lies... each one of these are lies. It is so easy to believe the whispers of negativity when we are unable to see how things are going to change or be different. . . Then, there is a small whisper of hope. It quietly tells you to keep going. Don't quit. Keep trying. You are worth it. There will be better days ahead. These whispers will fuel you to keep going even if it is one baby step at a time. . . So, when the negative words overwhelm you... don't listen. Instead, try one more time and hold on to hope. . . . . . #worldsaysgiveup #negativethoughts #tiredoffighting #tiredoffeelingbad #struggleisreal #lifeishard #lieswebelieve #whisperofhope #keepgoing #dontquit #keeptrying #betterdaysareahead #youareworthit #babysteps #dontlistentonegativity #focusonthepositive #hope #purpose #meaning #chronicillness #chronicfighter #thehealingfromwithin

We need a constant reminder of this. Focusing on the “can’t” can bring you down. Focus on what you can do, and use that shit to good effect! • The only time you should focus on the can’t is when you’re working out how you’re going to make it into a CAN.
If you live a busy life like me and don’t always have time to make fresh smoothies, this is the next best thing. I’ve tried a few greens powders, and I had to share this one because it’s the best tasting by far. It tastes even better blended with a banana. Nutrients are good and doesn’t make my lupus flare up. The best price best price point is found on Amazon. #healthyStuff
Aren’t we all stronger than we think? It doesn’t have anything to do with muscles but with mindset 😊 My son, in the picture, may look very thin and fragile, but don’t underestimate his power. I once saw the TedTalk from Amy Cuddy who said that your body language shapes who you are. So today I keep my head up high and 💪🏻😃 Have a nice day! 🇧🇪🇳🇱 Zijn we niet allemaal sterker dan we denken? Het heeft niets te maken met spieren maar met mindset😊 Mijn zoon, op de foto, ziet er misschien dun en breekbaar uit maar onderschat zijn krachten niet. Ik zag ooit een TedTalk van Amy Cuddy die verklaarde dat onze non-verbale communicatie onze persoonlijkheid vorm geeft. Dus vandaag is het voor mij: kop op en armen hoog 💪🏻😉😃 Fijne dag! ———————————————#butyoudontlooksick #chronicillness #spoonie #invisibleillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #chronischziek #health #onzichtbaarziek #onzichtbarepijn #fybromylgia #cfs #cvs #hypersensitivity #hypersensitiviteit #mentalhealth #mindful #hooggevoelig #iamstrong #ikbensterk #lawofattraction #dontgiveupthefight #bodylanguage #lichaamstaal #headuphigh #chronischvermoeid #headup #nofiltee #positivityiskey

A Facebook memory came up today of my university graduation 8 years ago! To be honest it feels longer in some ways as I've done so much since then. Partly because I didn't enjoy university, and I am comfortable with saying that now when before it made me squirm thinking I was not 'normal' and I didn't fit in. Having a special diet and not drinking alcohol or staying out all night didn't help! But I was proud that I stuck it out and got a good degree. Since leaving university I've gone from job to job, got a lot experience and done alot of growing up from the tender age of 21 to 29. The most life changing part of all of this was getting ill and living with a chronic disease. This has been really bad in some ways, but it has also given me a focus as to what I want to do for my career. I have spent the last three years with the most amazing group of like minded people (oh how refreshing this was) studying to become a Nutritional Therapist. I haven't figured out yet which avenue I want to go down, whether it be one to one consultations or public speaking, but I know it is the right path for me. Any questions about any of what I've said, please comment below 👇 x #student #graduate #degree #nutritionstudent #chronicillness
35 years ago the young couple on the left made an epic decision to get married. This decision has lead to a lifetime of happiness and love. It was the best decision they could’ve made! ❤️ . Happy 35th Anniversary Scoobs and Tines! Thanks for being the best parents I could’ve had and showing me the meaning of true love! 💜 . They also deserve a super special shoutout for supporting me through all my health problems and crazy ideas in life!!! 💜💜
" Rappel d'ami pour vérifier que votre corps n'est pas en tension. Relâchez vos épaules, vos mains, votre mâchoire. Respirez profondément. C'est déjà mieux ! " 😊 . Vérifier que je ne suis pas 'en tension' sans m'en rendre compte est quelque chose que je fais plusieurs fois par jours, je dirai même plusieurs fois par heure ! Ayant l'impression d'être très contractée en permanence, faire ceci me permet, pendant quelques secondes, de me recentrer sur le moment présent, sur mes sensations, et de tout relâcher, puis de reprendre mon activité plus détendue physiquement ! . . #fibromyalgie #fibromyalgia #fibro #fibrowarrior #frenchfibro #fibrofrance #fibrowoman #chronicillness #chronicpain #invisibleillness #invisibledisability #warrior #spoonie #spoontheory #spoonies #outofspoons #tensions #muscletensions
Hello folks! Another affirmation card for you today. This one is to remind me to be mindful of tension and conflict arising and to find a way to let it go. I find it can arise with even the simplest of things when my fatigue is bad. Not so long ago I found myself in a constant mental struggle about how to spend my precious energy, as there were so many things I wanted to do and felt I “should” be doing. When I realised how much energy I was giving to this, I was able to let lots of things go and strip things right back so I could focus on my healing. I immediately felt so much calmer and the tension dissolved. It’s a constant work in progress though, so this lovely affirmation is a reminder for me to remain vigilant and aim for that state of flow :) Wishing you all a lovely gentle week ahead. It’s a restful one for me after a super busy weekend socialising with family and friends. I’m celebrating a big win for being able to participate and enjoy the weekend - socialising is one of the things that drains my energy the most. ♡ xxxx . . . #affirmations #positiveaffirmations #affirmationcards #zoepoweraffirmations #chronicillness #spoonie #cfsme #themindfulapproach #mymindfulminutes
Nerve blocks are not fun! X-ray guided syringes in your face. This was a zygomatic nerve block which is much better than the Mandibular nerve block...so far.
