You know you’re a #spoonieforlife when you wear your favorite baggy shirt for only a few hours one day then turn it inside out and hang up to “air out” 😂 I promise it will smell fresh as a daisy because I did absolutely nothing in it except go to my pelvic PT appointment 💙 #spoonie4lyfe #spooniemom #thisshirttho #pelvicpt 💙 #pelvicpain #interstitialcystitis #pelviccongestionsyndrome #nutcrackersyndrome #pelvicfloordysfunction #chronicillness #chronicpain #spoonie #spoonielife
Body *care* product is a total oxymoron. . The FDA doesn't approve body care products & ingredients before they go on the market. They also don’t have tests required for any body care product or ingredient. . This means most brands are not tested for human safety, regardless of what the label says. . Companies are allowed to put nearly any chemical into body care products in the US—even known carcinogens—without safety testing & without disclosing the chemicals on label. . This is the case for your baby’s shampoo + diaper rash creams, your toothpaste + dry shampoo, your perfume, antiperspirant, & every other body care product you use daily. . You wanted to see non-toxic body care… get ready for it. This is wayyy too big of a topic to cover in one post, so I’m breaking it up into sections: body, face, baby. . Quick disclaimer: my suggestions aren't an exhaustive list. I’m sharing the products I personally use & love right now. In the detox program I’m creating, I have a Tested and Trusted Guidebook full of alternative brands I love, but for IG I’m just sharing what I use. Okay, let’s have some fun. . >>BODY<< . Deodorant + Dry Shampoo || My primary concern with conventional deodorant and dry shampoo is the aluminum that both contain. Here we are, unknowingly applying a heavy metal next to our lymph nodes, breasts, & brain on a daily basis. I use @PrimallyPure for clean alternatives to both. . Fragrance + Body Oil + Body Lotion || These are all @Beautycounter , which as a company has banned the use of 1500 substances (compared to the FDA which banned 30) 😑. Send me a DM if you’re interested in Beautycounter! . Body Butter || @BuffaloGalGrassfedBeauty sent me some of their tallow + essential oil based products recently, and I’m *loving* the body butter. . Send me your ?s in the comments!

My sparkle faded a bit this morning. It’s a bad pain day and it shouldn’t have been. I didn’t notice until AFTER the fact that the ingredients of one of my go to cooking arsenal changed since I last restocked to INCLUDE soy. I thought it couldn’t possibly be enough to affect me. 3 1/2 hours later I can tell you I was very wrong. Food triggers are real. This is why we need to be so vigilant. You get so used to your normal that you don’t know what feeling can be OR you are so on top of it you notice immediately when something is amiss. #youmatter #readyourlabels #antiinflammatoryfoodsrule #endometriosisawareness #spoonie #fitendowarrior #michellesfitandfiercechallenge
Ok. I'm not going. Because I can't find a bra. And I can't find a shirt I can wear w/out a bra. My apt is a fucking disaster area. The dog's water bowl in his kennel needs to be scrubbed before it's refilled. And so many other reasons that are valid, & not just my #agoraphobia . So I'm eating some crackers & cheese for a snack, & a pear, too, & taking half an hour or maybe a whole hour to eat & plan today better than I have. Laundry. Tidying. Cardboard recycled. Maybe a trip to Walmart to take more stuff back & get some food. If Mom's willing. Getting some stuff ready to mail. Again, if Mom is willing. Trying to take garbage out by myself. That's going to be pushing it, but I need to try. And calling the cleaning person. That's going to be really pushing it but it's got to get done. But Mom wants to be there when I do it, so it'll be later. But taking a break to eat & get a realistic list for today is gonna happen now. #depression #fatigue #fibromyalgia #spoonie #housecleaning

Hunger is a tricky thing for people with eating disorders. We’ve disregarded it for so long that we forget what it feels like. I, for one, ignored my hunger until it became a perpetual part of my reality. I started experiencing it again in recovery, and I was honestly so confused; I kept asking my dietician “what’s happening to me?! what am I feeling? what is this? am I dying?” Today’s post answers these questions and more. Read on to learn about hunger. Question: What is hunger? Answer: Hunger is the physical sensation generated by the body when needs more nutrients. It is caused by hypothalamic processing of the hormone ghrelin (lenomorelin), which is secreted by gastrointestinal tract in response to blow blood glucose levels and/or an empty stomach. Q: How do you know if you’re hungry? A: We all know about the obvious stomach growling, but hunger can manifest in many other ways, too. Symptoms include a churning, hollowness, or tightness in the stomach, lightheadedness, dizziness, or fainting, headaches, muscle cramps, shakiness/jitters, rapid heartrate, exhaustion and fatigue, irritability/agitation, lack of concentration, and even nausea. Q: What should you do if you feel hungry? A: Generally, if you’re hungry, you should eat. Exceptions include if you are fasting for a surgical procedure, on a meal plan that dictates your intake times, or have been otherwise advised by a medical professional not to do so. Q: Why are you hungrier on some days than on others? A: Hormone, activity, and stress levels can all influence your hunger. For instance, women tend to require extra nutrition prior to their menstrual periods (on account of increased calorie expenditure), and cardiovascular exercise has been shown to stimulate appetite. Growing children will also consume more calories than average, and studies have shown that lack of sleep leads to inversely proportional food consumption. Q: What if your hunger can’t keep up with your metabolism or vice versa? A: A healthy individual’s hunger and fullness cues will be accordance with their body’s nutritional needs, and they will eat enough to maintain a healthy weight at a reasonable (CONT’D IN COMMENTS)

Sunlight; a metaphor for truth, honesty & happiness. Today, I wanna talk about sunlight or more importantly standing in the sun. I think we can all agree that chronic illness can bring some pretty dark days, or what can seem like a never ending night. It can feel cold, isolating, and downright cruel. Standing in a crowd of people looking at you, looking for one person, a stranger, to really see YOU can feel lonely. For many of us, we are tired of the restrictions, exhausted by the treatments and jaded by the disappointment. • The sunlight is a mindset, a concept, an attitude, a decision to fight, to stand on the days you can, and to be patient in the face of frustration. It’s learning to dance sitting down, it’s admitting when you need help, being kind when you’re in pain, but most importantly, being willing to accept and commit to the idea that there will be brighter days ahead. • In the past month, a lot has happened. New diagnoses, new beginnings, struggle, small cheering worthy victories, and a lot of laughs: at myself, with friends and at things that were just well, belly laugh funny. But one thing has been significantly different. For the past month, I have been standing in the sunlight. I have danced in a hospital bed, I have laughed till it hurts, I have felt seen and understood, and lastly I have found a sense of fight that I didn’t know I had. We all find sunlight for one reason or another, mine was a fluke. This is not to say I’ll never have another dark day, but my journey has been forever changed by this force of nature...... If you do one thing today, find something that makes you feel like you’re a little closer to standing in the sun. • • #fightingforacure #livingwith #chronicillness #autoimmunedisease #immunedeficiency #immunesystem #lupus #lymedisease #connectivetissue #anemia #neutropenia #spoonie #sickfightsback #fighting #positivevibes #health #medical #love #hospital

How do you distract yourself on bad pain days? What helps you zone out? This week, I'm making centerpieces and listening to music. P.S. Confession: Sometimes I play @thesims and make my Sim do all the physical things I can't, like walk up and down the stairs, stand up and sit down repeatedly, or go for a jog. It's oddly therapeutic. -Caitlyn #ehlersdanlossyndrome #eds #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #pots #spoonie #zebra #zebrastrong #paindistraction

You are fearfully and wonderfully made. It's so true yet so hard to remember. So here is your daily reminder. I often have moments of overwhelming guilt. That I brought my illnesses upon myself. That I did something wrong and that's why all of this has happened. That I let down my family and friends. But those are all LIES. In moments like that it seems there is nothing you could say to me to change my thinking. Since I know this about myself, my response is to go to God in prayer. To pray for help in believing my worth to Him. So if you are having one of those moments today please remember that you are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are perfectly YOU, exactly the way the creator of the universe created you specifically to be. You are loved. And you are enough. So so so enough.

Congratulations your progress is inspiring people you may never meet, but who are cheering for you! @healthyobgyn ・・・ #transformationtuesday motivation for me more than anything! I know that if I can go from overweight resident that couldn’t squeeze herself into size #XL scrubs to an attending physician with more than enough room in size #small scrubs that anything is possible if you set your mind to it. Being fit and healthy is hard. Being #obese is hard too. We have to pick our hard. One thing that is certain is that we can all reach our goals!! Still pushing to be truly fit and drop body fat that I’ve let creep back in since relocating and starting over brand new in a new place. Getting back in shape won’t be easy, but I can say first hand it’s going to be so worth it! • • • • • #scrublife #medlife #womeninmedicine #spoonie #cleaneating #ExtremeWeightLoss #fitfam #fitspo #fatloss #lchf #fattofit #followmyjourney #girlswholift #keto #journey #motivation #nsv #onaquest #transformation #weightloss #womenshealth #ms #msawareness #autoimmune #residency #md
This was last night. Though I try to keep a positive, happy face on most of the time, this is where diabetes pushes you. And I want to be real, and raw about it. I went to the eye doctor yesterday, and though he said everything looks normal for 21 years of diabetes, he'd like to start monthly injections for some spots in my eyes. INJECTIONS? IN MY EYE? I waited until I was home to freak out and cry, while sitting in the dark since I could barely see from the dilation. Diabetes is exhausting, overwhelming, and never cuts you a break. I know we are told that we can absolutely live full lives with it, but everyone that lives with it deserves some huge credit for doing so. It's hard. And it's ok to break down sometimes.

Hey lovelies! . We have the UK lyme protest on 1st of March and with that in mind, I'm putting together a little mosaic for the protest invitations. The plan is to use all of your photos, pictures of you during treatment, in bed, your pills, IV's, medications etc and stitch them all into a heading for the invitation. . Please send me, or tag me in your photos if you're happy for me to use them! We want all ages, from all backgrounds, we need to show just how many people this awful illness is affecting. .

I’ve been quiet for a few days. Still rolling with my Whole30, but I’ve been extremely exhausted and I’m still experiencing urticaria which has been uncomfortable. I have moments where I feel really good, but in general I’m just not noticing any significant improvements just yet from this plan. I’m just trying to remain patient and trust the process. In the meantime, I’m trying to prep my mindset for needing to take this all to another level and graduate my Whole30 to Autoimmune Paleo. I’m willing to do the work either way. I know what being sick feels like, I know what giving up feels like, and I’m sick and tired of both! Even if my progress is slow, I’m going to keep working. Quitting will not help me feel better!

| CILANTRO PESTO | Cilantro, also called coriander and Chinese parsley, is the go-to herb for heavy metal detoxification. Cilantro’s magic in detoxifying the brain lies in the living water in its stems and leaves. This is a critical aspect of how it can travel past the blood-brain barrier; in this living water are mineral salts comprised of minerals such as sodium, potassium, and chloride, which are bound to potent phytochemicals. When they enter the body, these precious salts join natural highways of other mineral salts that travel through the bloodstream, lymph fluid, and spinal fluid. As they come upon the amino acids glycine and glutamine in their travels, the mineral salts bind onto them, forming the ultimate neurotransmitters. The brain is a magnet for mineral salts, and when it draws up these precious mineral salt compounds from cilantro, a surprise package is attached: phytochemicals that deliberately remove toxic heavy metals from the brain, freeing up neurons from toxic heavy metal oxidized residue, so that they can function at their best. While many people love the rich, savory flavor of cilantro, others get a bad taste in their mouths whenever they eat it. Try not to get caught up in the trend that theorizes that a dislike of cilantro has to do with genes. This genetic concept hasn’t been studied widely enough—if it were, researchers would nd that there is not a gene that determines whether or not a person has an aversion to cilantro. There are no genes that tell us not to eat a certain food. What’s really going on with cilantro aversion? When a person perceives an abrupt, harsh flavor from the herb, it means that she or he has a higher oxidative rate of heavy metals in her or his system. This doesn’t mean the person possesses a higher level of toxic heavy metals. Rather, the heavy metals (in this case, usually a combination of aluminum, nickel, and/or copper, at whatever level) in her or his body are corroding rapidly. Corrosion means that there’s toxic runoff, which makes its way into a person’s lymphatic system and saliva. ⬇️MORE INFO + RECIPE BELOW⬇️{or click link in profile}

Probably my favorite veggie EVER!! Slightly steamed and crispy.. I can never get enough of asparagus 😍🤗🤤 It’s in season now so time to stock up people! ~ “Asparagus is a fantastic healing vegetable that is high in essential minerals such as selenium, zinc, and manganese which are vital for a strong and healthy immune system. It is also high in vitamins A, K, and B-complex including folate which is a building block for a healthy cardiovascular system and for woman who are trying to conceive. Asparagus contains aspartic acid which is an amino acid that neutralizes excess amounts of ammonia in the body that is often the cause of exhaustion, headaches, and poor digestion. Asparagus contains significant amounts of healthy fiber and protein which helps to maintain blood sugar levels, prevent constipation, stabilize digestion, and stop the urge to overeat. It also contains a compound called asparagine which is a natural diuretic that breaks up oxalic and uric acid crystals stored in muscles and in the kidneys and eliminates them through the urine. This natural diuretic is helpful in reducing water retention, bloating, and swelling in the body. Asparagus is also high in glutathione which is an antioxidant powerhouse and particularly beneficial for those suffering with autoimmune conditions, liver disease, heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.” @medicalmedium

*BUT YOU DON'T LOOK SICK* Welcome to the Perception-Deception . 💥FREE health-invisibility cloak, and an unwelcome list of miracle cures, dietary recommendations, and statements of how you don't look sick, available with all subscriptions to the Chronically-Ill-Club💥 . In a world where we still associate a disabilty as being wheelchair-bound, and being slim and looking well, as healthy, it's no wonder the debilitating nature of IBD is still so unknown. When you live with a chronic illness like Crohn's, it's almost a curse to look so well (not that I want to look ill mind). . Yet when I look at this photo of myself, even I struggle to see how poorly I actually am. The irony is I probably look the best I ever have, which is so far from the truth. When I took this selfie my body was in crippling pain (how dare I go out to London for the day) and my bastard-bowels were berating me for enjoying a few drinks (the first in a long time) #frustrating . Looks truly can be deceiving, be careful to make assumptions of others, you never know what battle they are fighting within #crohnslife #butyoudontlooksick #perceptiondeception
