Well that’s it... summer’s definitely gone. The heating’s been on a few days. Got that stuffy nose feeling as well that I get every year when the weather changes. Dead sad about it! Anyway, I said yesterday that I’d share what happened when I went to get my last steroid injection the other week. I casually mentioned to the doctor doing the procedure that I was keen for knee joint injections as well ready for an upcoming trip to Florida in December - because you know, I’ll be fucked if I can’t walk and this is a once in a lifetime kinda holiday for us which we’ve worked our asses off for! And the nurse assisting had the cheek to turn around and say, “oh it’s alright for some innit, such a hard life!”. Lady, how dare you? You don’t know anything about my life and I don’t need to justify anything to you. I couldn’t believe it. I said “you’ve made me feel really embarrassed,” and she dismissed me, looked to the doctor and gave the most obvious smirk. I went to my clinic and came away feeling ashamed for asking for something that will make me feel well just for the short time I’m away. Like I’m already privileged enough, how dare I be so audacious to ask for a steroid jab before a family hol. No, fuck off! I spent the first year of RA in a wheel chair and had no ability to walk. RA and my germ related OCD has taken so much away from me and my kids! The therapy I have needed and the work I have put in to be able to take a trip to Florida is bigger than she’d ever know and the year I’ve had has been less than perfect. I deserve Disney just as much as the next person and I deserve good knees so I can enjoy it! I hope she gets further training - she sure needs it.. I refuse to feel bad for the good things that I work for 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
A little bit of bright for our lovely @lelmccormack_xx #ibd #nailsatstudio4 #nailsofinstagram #brentwoodnails #essexnails #nailsalon by Corinne 😘
Bells didn’t appreciate her post haircut pictures but she’s too cute to not document it 😍 today has been a pretty eventful day for both of us since she went off to get her pampering at the groomers (she acts like she’s heartbroken when we leave but I know she loves that the groomer has the good treats so it’s all an act 😂) and I had my first day back at uni since 2017 as I’ve been working from home all year while trying to recover from my most recent surgery 😬 I’ve been avoiding going in for the last 2 weeks because I’m so anxious about being at home but after my dad coming up with me twice (I couldn’t do it and go in last week when we tried) I finally got in and attended my first lecture even if it was 3 hours long and I was terrified to go to the toilet in case anyone noticed my full bag... 😂 I feel like it’s a plus that I didn’t have a panic attack today and I was really relieved at the time but now it’s getting late I’m absolutely terrified of going in tomorrow again 😩 but I think my mum’s going to go in with me so I’m not alone with my thoughts for too long and don’t sit in my car pretending I went inside because I’m far too anxious to go inside 🤦🏼‍♀️ I honestly never thought I’d be like this after spending so much of my life angry about being too sick to leave my house and desperate to go out but anxiety and agoraphobia are weird things that don’t always make sense and I guess that’s alright. 😕 I’m really hoping that one day soon I’ll be able to be alone and not panic, but it’ll take time ☺️ now if I could just relax for the rest of the night that’d be great but instead I’m now worried because my ostomy has started bleeding for only the second time in 4 years. I’ve not had any trauma to the area, or are anything dodgy so I’m hoping that it won’t get worse🤞🏻 #blogger #dogsofinstagram #fashion #health #life #ibd #crohns #ileostomy #anxiety #invisibleillness #chronicillness #glasgow #student #ootd #mentalhealth #spoonie #agoraphobia #instagood #photooftheday #love #ibdawareness #bichonfrise #effyourbeautystandards #spooniestrong #autoimmune #fightlikeagirl #confidence #beyourself #nocolonstillrolling #disabled

Optimal gut health has recently gained a lot of focus in the weight loss/fitness industry. Understandably so- because an imbalanced gut microbiome has been linked to numerous problems- everything from autism to obesity, diabetes, allergies, autoimmunity, depression, cancer, heart disease, fibromyalgia, eczema, and asthma. _ Your gut contains 500 species and three pounds of bacteria that collectively contain DNA that outnumbers your own DNA by 100x. Altogether, your gut is a huge chemical factory that helps to digest food, produce vitamins, regulate hormones, excrete toxins, produce healing compounds and keep your whole body healthy. _ Intestinal health (the optimal digestion, absorption, and assimilation of food) is crucial. Having a healthy gut should mean more to you than being annoyed by a little bloating or heartburn. It becomes central to your entire wellbeing and connected to everything that happens in your body. That’s why I almost always start addressing my clients weight loss or health stalls by ensuring digestion is optimized first. And optimal gut health often begins with the diet. _ By adjusting simple diet factors like food type, meal size and meal spacing my client (who's asked to remain private) has been able to make insane progress in terms of managing his IBS symptoms in just a few days. His bloating, gas and constipation have dramatically improved and as a result he looks better (obviously!) but more importantly, he FEELS better. _ For more on digestive health or what to eat during times of digestive distress or IBS/IBD flare- be sure to check out my blog!

Waiting on Captain, today they did a specialized test involving sedating him and placing contacts over his eyes and electrodes to register if his rods and cone respond to bright lights. So far he has baffled the vets with his results involving both rods and cones. Daybliness is what we suspected which involves just the cones. He may have a newer found form of dayblindness normally found in poodles. Next step is to ship off his blood sample for genetic testing and start Ocu-Glo Vision Supplement.

✨This is my lovely, amazing, wonderful, badass, and resilient momma of mine. I swear her heart is made of gold and her unconditional love seriously keeps me going. She is constantly advocating for me and takes lots of time away from her busy schedule to be there for me, even when I’m throwing a pity party, she’s there. I couldn’t manage this journey without her constant love and support. Even though I’m sick, at least it gives us a reason to hang out together more often. Today she took me to meet my new cardiologist this morning. He was really nice, took his time, and was very thoughtful and thorough. He decided I need thigh compression stockings instead of knee high and he’s increasing my saline infusions to 1.5 liters twice a week. I will most likely be getting a port for that. He’s also tapering me off of Amitriptiline because apparently that makes Pots even worse. (I didn’t know that!) Steps forward we’re made today and I’m happy about it. My mom is my superhero, and she can talk about all the happy things, offering to get me whatever I need as I cry in her passenger seat in her car. I know it’s hard for her too, but I seriously just love how comforting it is to have my mom in my life. I’m forever grateful for her. Who else couldn’t do it without their momma? 🙋🏻‍♀️ @mollysbooks1 I love you so much! 💘💘💘 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #chronicillness #chronicpain #raredisease #disabledandcute #cripplepunk #eds #heds #hypermobileeds #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #pots #IBD #IBS #dysautonomia #hypotension #syncope #fainting #mcas #mcad #mastcell #mastcellactivationdisorder #mastcellactivationsyndrome #spoonie #spooniewarrior #zebra #zebrastrong #bendyaf #darkcomedy

Did you know that @spin4crohnscolitis has a ride where you live option? . . . Kristie created her own event in Hummelstown, PA, continue below for her story! "Thanks to the amazing support and generosity of Calli, Steve and Studio 619 in Hummelstown, our team participated in an indoor cycling relay and fundraiser and raised $720! . . . A little over two years ago, our Ben was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease during the course of a pretty scary and serious week long hospitalization. It took four additional months of a tube feed to get Ben back to a safe and healthy place, and ongoing hours long medication infusions every 7 weeks for the foreseeable future. We are so grateful for the care he has received with Penn State Hershey Medical Center and CHOP, the amazing people we have met, and the fun and support Ben has had with other kids affected by Crohn's and Colitis- particularly at Camp Oasis. . . . Ben truly blew me away with his maturity, strength, courage and humor during this ordeal, and continues to inspire me every day. I’m happy to be able to try and match a bit of that spirit for him during this event. . . . We spin4 crohn's & colitis cures!"
This is my favorite salad right now! Cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, feta cheese, lemon juice, salt and pepper. O M G it's delicious. It's also full of things I didn't think I'd be able to eat with an ostomy. Thankfully, with some experimentation and a lot of research about what causes blockages and how to avoid them, I've been successful digesting this time and time again. The biggest secret to eating delicious, fibrous foods like this? Chew Chew Chew. Make it a smoothie in your mouth. And make sure you're hydrating as well, to help it make it's way through your gut. What food are you super grateful to be able to digest?
Meet our effusive and joyful NCCL member, Amy Bugwadia! Scroll down to read about her #MostMemorableIBDMoment ! "My most memorable #IBD moment was at my first Take Steps walk. I was chosen as the Honored Hero of my area’s event that year and had the privilege of sharing my story with all the attendees. I’ll never forget the moment that I said I had been in remission for a few years, because everyone started clapping in celebration with me. That’s when I realized how much the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation is a tight-knit family to me and to all others with IBD."

Manifestation comes through an idea that sticked in your head long enough for it to find a way out and become a reality. We have that power. Everything you see today was an idea or a thought at first. We just have to be stubborn enough to push through everything that stands in its way. And then there is result. - To actually connect that to this photo; i was a insecure and skinny little fella that never found his place in the crowd. Girls didnt notice me i wasnt special in any kind of significant way. Ironically i became a ‘rolemodel’ after i became sick and fit and taught others to do the same. I always thought of ways to be important to others, be an example. And through these channels, i can. Im always open for questions and advice. Im no professional, just experienced in pain, discomfort and not giving up!! 🙌🏻 - Tank by @doyouevenhoist // - www.hoistwear.com - #fitpic #fitlife #fitness #fit #dedication #motivation #dutchfitness #aesthetic #shredded #ibd #ulcerativecolitis #crohnsandcolitis #awareness #ibdwarrior #nevergiveup #portrait #fitnessphotography #physique #confidence #sqoupe #photography #lifestyle #edit #photooftheday #model #doyouevenhoist
