Infusion yesterday morning. It was literal hell. My Veins are shot. It Took her 30 minutes to draw 2 tubes of blood from the Iv I had. So next week I see primary to talk about inserting a port 🤞🏻 #Lupus #lupusflare #lupuswarrior #lupusawareness #spoonies #spoonie #spooniesunite #spoonielife #fightlikeagirl #theglamorousspoonie #autoimmunedisease #degenerativediscdisease #degenerativebonedisease #degenerativearthritis #bonedisease #interstitialcystitis #gastroparesis #fibromyalgia #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillness #survivor
Trying to learn how to sit at His feet. I need my Lord Jesus every hour. ♥️ ▫️ Thinking about my circumstances (single, sick, etc), and how God provides! He may not provide in the ways I expect, but His ways are always supremely better than my own. ▫️ As I draw near, I really need to lay down everything at His feet. In total surrender. I am single and childless, but He has allowed me to greatly impact my loved one's lives. I can love, be an example, pray for, and speak God's Word into their lives. ▫️ Keep seeking Him, friends!! ▫️▫️▫️ #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #Fibro #Dysautonomia #POTS #NCS #PTSD #Depression #Anxiety #PCOS #InterstitialCystitis #TrigeminalNeuralgia #Hypotension #Hypothyroidism #FaithBlogger #ChristianBlogger #Christian #Faith
Sooo enjoying looking back at past coloring pages. Coloring is soo therapeutic and helps me get alone with God {to worship my Savior, enjoy His presence, and clear out space to pray}.

I always have a rough time just getting my body started in the morning. It's sad to think of how I can't do much until mid afternoons. ▫️ #saturday #checkin - how are you drawing near to our Great God, despite trials? We may not feel well, but we can draw near without overdoing it. ▫️ I spent this morning watching #hawaiifive0 until I could eat and get my body to function a little better. I am still not there yet, but taking some time to enjoy the quiet hum of a tumbling dryer, sit with my Bible open to 1 John, and use #GoogleDocs to write out Scripture. ▫️ I have really bad physical weakness, so I can't write out as much as I would like to. So using my mom's laptop is such a blessing! I can sit, read, write, watch different things, and even listen to praise music. ▫️ For me: it is absolutely about meeting our Lord Jesus where I am. I want to just meet Him here. I may not be able to move around or do too much, but I am going to sit here and reflect on these biblical truths. I am soo thankful He takes me as I am, and loves me sooo much!!♥️♥️ ▫️ "So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world [James 4:7‭-‬8 NLT]." ▫️▫️▫️▫️ #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #Fibro #Dysautonomia #POTS #NCS #PTSD #Depression #Anxiety #PCOS #InterstitialCystitis #TrigeminalNeuralgia #Hypotension #Hypothyroidism #FaithBlogger #ChristianBlogger #Christian #Faith #Blogger #Scripture
“How will I ever be able to have intercourse?” If you’ve struggled with pelvic pain it’s likely that this question is very familiar to you. (Unless of course you’ve been pushing all thoughts of sex and intimacy out of your mind since your symptoms began.) The idea of intercourse or any type of penetration may send your brain into a tailspin of worry and catastrophic thinking, and you into a full-blown panic. If so, you are not alone! Women and men who’ve struggled with pelvic pain, especially pain during or after sex commonly experience anxiety when they think about attempting intercourse again, or sometimes physical intimacy at all (which of course might lead to intercourse). This anxiety can come up whether you’re still in a lot of pain, or your symptoms are virtually gone and you’ve been successfully using dilators for some time…or any time in between. And unfortunately the more anxious you feel, the more stimulated your nervous system is, the more likely it is that your muscles will contract, and the more difficult it will be to actually have or enjoy sex at all. Which is why I want to share with you my 5 most effective strategies for overcoming the anxiety that’s been getting in your way. So that you can not only start having and enjoying intercourse with your partner (if that’s what you want right now), but more importantly so that you can reclaim your connection with your body and sexuality, and heal any deeper issues that may be contributing to your pain! http://ow.ly/D6Dg30mVciJ

Starting Bladder Ease today after Cysto-renew stopped being afordably available. The pills are a little larger but look the same other than that. I also plan on getting some aloe capsules when i can.

I used to blog everyday. Sometimes a few times a day. It was such a relief and a way of getting out what was going on in this busy mind of mine, and saying what's on my heart. I was fearless. I didn't care about whether it made sense or who was reading it. But recently I've noticed when I start to write, I feel worried what people think. I'm scared if it won't make sense. I worry if it'll be too much, too intense. I just worry about everything! Writing can be a metaphor for how we feel in ourselves sometimes I think. I feel so damn sensitive to everything. Emotionally, relationally. I give more of a shit (in not such a helpful way) and I hate it. So I wanted to start a new account where I begin to share and find my voice again. Where I say what I'm feeling and I fight through that fear to find my voice again. Busy mind or not. So here it is, there'll be cartoons and plenty of memes. And maybe some wisdom but definitely just lots of honest sharing about life with chronic illness and the ways in which I cope and fight and live despite the shit life throws at me seemingly consistently, relentlessly. And it'll be a place you can share too. One of my favourite things about social media is the connections it's brought me with other people living with chronic illness. It's pretty fucking special so I'm glad I get to be a part of it and that you can be too. 💛
In treating chronic illness for almost a quarter of a century, the opportunity to see and treat all kinds of infections becomes very much at the forefront of practice. In fact, in our work, the work that we have done with infectious conditions crosses over with our work with chronic inflammation. It occurred to me today because one of our patients was concerned she was wasn’t taking the right herbs in case she had a strep throat vs a cold or virus. I realized that there is so much knowledge wise that we take for granted. Proper herbal therapy when someone is sick should be broad spectrum therefore having the capacity to address cold flu bacterial issues in a way that the specifics are irrelevant. The point is— one doesn’t need to think prescription antibiotics when they are worried about a serious infection. Think herbs, think natural! The sickness in the first place is intertwined with your every day health! #ic #interstitialcystitis #interstitialcystitisaltmed #interstitialcystitisawareness #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicillness #educationforprevention #iceducation #leakygut #sibo #fibromyalgia #vulvodynia #youtube #vitamins #dietsforhealth #supplements #foodforchronicillness #foodforic #foodforhealth I

I got brave and tackled the shin-deep snow in the driveway yesterday. Not being able to do things is a part of chronic illness I'm still getting used to. I wasn't able to finish, and my body is paying the price today, but I call it a victory for trying! #interstitialcystitis #interstitialcystitisawareness #icwarrior #endometriosis #endo #chronicillness #chronicpain #invisibleillness #pelvichealth #pelvicpain #pelvicfloordysfunction #fighter #aforeffort #newnormal #spoonie #spoonielife #christmas #snowflake #snow #snowshoveling #shovelingsnow #alaska #alaskalife #anchorage #winter #winterwonderland
My succulent garden needed some love. So I went and picked out some new succulents with my step daughter yesterday afternoon @36th_street_garden_center and planted them this morning. Having plants makes me happy! Plus, succulents are great for filtering and adding extra oxygen to the air; which is good during the winter months when we keep our windows shut. Do you use plants to filter the air?
Can YOU believe it’s December? Before you know it, deductibles are resetting and it’s back to avoiding the doctor. If you have have any symptoms that just don’t feel right, head to your doctor and discuss them. __________ My pelvic pain patients say it takes them atleast 1-2 years to get diagnosed with pelvic floor dysfunction and 7-10 to get diagnosed with endometriosis. Don’t hesitate to tell your doctor what you think you have. A lot of patients say they don’t want to interject but honestly I think the doctor would appreciate the suggestions if they are stumped. _______ Do you have any of these symptoms? Chronic pelvic pain that radiates to the groin, abdomen and back. Painful sexual intercourse. Strong or frequent urge to urinate. Burning during urination. Urinary incontinence. Vaginal burning. Painful menstrual periods. Difficulty with defecation and constipation. _____ #pelvicphysicaltherapy #pelvicpt #pelvicfloordysfunction #silentillness #chronicpain #spoonie #chronicpelvicpain #painsomnia #constipation #sibo #interstitialcystitis #prostatitis #pudendalneuralgia #hardflaccid #pgad #pelvicfloordysfunction #levatorani #pelvicpain #hypertonicpelvicfloor #nycdoc #doctor #sickvisit
Today's been a really tough day for me. In fact the past week or two has been really tough, lots of anxiety and increasingly frequent panic attacks. My therapist knows, and we're working through it, but recovery is a slow process. Recovery also has many ups and downs, it's not a straight line. The important part is the overall upward trend. 💕 Even though there's temporary downward periods of time. If you're going through something similar, please take care of yourself: meds, water, food, comfy clothes, and patience for yourself.✨💜 #mentalhealth #mentalillness #anxiety #depression #PTSD #survivor #recovery #strength #RareDisease #ChronicIllness #ChronicallyIll #ChronicPain #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #EDS #Hypermobility #Gastroparesis #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome #POTS #CeliacDisease #Gluten #Glutenfree #Fibromyalgia #InterstitialCystitis #PeriodicLimbMovementDisorder #Disability #Disabled #Mobility #Health

WHAT DOES YOUR PAIN FEEL LIKE? 🤔 • This is a question I’m asked quite a bit, and my answer changes dependent on a few things - 1) how I’m feeling that day, 2) whether the person is *really* interested and 3) if I want to be honest. Sometimes I get so BORED of repeating myself because it’s so rare I’ll find someone who really understands 😞 • Day-to-day my pain is a constant nagging toothache, accompanied with sharp pain, twisting and pulling sensations 😖 My bad days are full of throbbing, punching and ripping feelings, and my worse days are all of the above plus bursting, burning and hot-poker pain 😫 It’s the worst cramping pain you’ll ever feel. • My pain has progressed from being cyclical with my period, to the days before and after, to every single day. 📆 My pain is 24/7 - people who do not experience this cannot comprehend it. They don’t believe it can be “that bad” or “that often”. They don’t understand how it limits our activities, makes us struggle and stops us from doing things 🛑 • At the moment my pain has been consistently bad for months and there is NOTHING that can be done. It’s taken me to hospital, made me have emergency surgery and is now causing complications 🤒 • Pain changes a person. I’ve noticed I am more down and not bothered about doing things because the words “I can’t” come in my head. And I am working to improve that 🙏 • Pain is not always recognised as a serious problem, which NEEDS to change 🎗 • #blog #blogger #support #community #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #butyoudontlooksick #spoonie #endometriosis #endo #endosister #endowarrior #endosisters #endowarriors #adenomyosis #adeno #adenosister #adenowarrior #adenosisters #adenowarriors #mecfs #chronicfatigue #myalgicencephalomyelitis #interstitialcystitis #bladderpainsyndrome #pcos #polycysticovariessyndrome #chronicpain

So apparently Psoriatic Arthritis, which I have, increases your chance of hip fractures! I feel like all my chronic illnesses are just an interconnected web.

For the first time I was harassed about my handicap parking plaquerd. As we were about to get out of the car, a woman walking by decided she had an opinion that needed to be shared. My husband had just thrown the plaquerd in the window and she started to wave her finger at us like we were children doing something wrong. "Ya'll aint handicapped." To which my husband urgently asked what her problem was with his wife having a heat condition. "Oh, i didnt know" all I could say was " maybe next time you should know before you say something. to that she said "Thank you." as she walked off..The most rediculous part of it all was that we wern't even parked in a handicap parking spot. harassment comes in many forms. blunt force is the worst. keep your ignorance to yourself. #chronicpain #caneuser #happyholidays #ignorance #harassment #dontjudgeme #chronicillness #spoonie #potssyndrome #fibromyalgia #interstitialcystitis #reactivehypoglycemia

It’s a best holiday drink competition and we are sure to win! I mean, who doesn’t love shots of tequila? Jk, we won last year so I figured I’d give someone else a chance. And shots of tequila is worth an honorable mention, at least. If you know me you’ll understand why I find this so amusing. What’s your signature holiday drink? #holidayparty #drinkup #tequilashots #dryhumor

Some days, it is really hard for me to open my Bible and sit to study. That is literally how it has been this week. . . Even so I am trying to keep on. I am not in Exodus, but 1 John tonight. I am not doing a specified book study right now, except for our passages in 1 Corinthians during the week. It's basically wherever I feel led to read and study, which is honestly how it should be. As long as I am aiming to get close to Jesus, that's all that matters. Hope you all have a soul rejuvenating weekend and can enjoy some wonderful Jesus time, along with family time. I am hoping to just rest and maybe recooperate a bit. #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #Fibro #Dysautonomia #POTS #NCS #PTSD #Depression #Anxiety #PCOS #InterstitialCystitis #TrigeminalNeuralgia #Hypotension #Hypothyroidism #FaithBlogger #ChristianBlogger #Christian #Faith
From being a wee little newborn EMT to finishing up the remainders of classes for my 2 year recert before my surgeries. I became an EMT because I wanted to work in an environment that was high stress and forced you to think and solve problems fast or at least keep those already created problems from getting worse. I wanted to help people. To be there for them like other health care providers have been there for me on my worse days. Although high stress situations are supposed to be stressful, it is one of the times I feel most calm, peace, and focused. Working in EMS has been nothing shy of the best thing I have ever done. It has been an absolute blessing. As I come up to my 2 years to recert soon I can't help feel I am exactly where I am meant to be in my life. Working in the medical field. I love love what I do! I always look forward to going to work. As I am approaching my surgery dates I cannot help but feel so much peace. I am truly looking forward to getting back out there. Although it has only been shy of a couple months, I miss being out there everyday! I am at home on the ambulance. I cherish my coworkers and love my family at Mercy, JCF, and Mercy Ambulance. What a blessing my life has been. I look forward to continuing to learn, grow, and better myself overall each and everyday. #ITLS #internationaltraumalifesupport #EMT #EMS #vasculardisease #maythurnerssyndrome #interstitialcystitis #pelvicvenouscongestionsyndrome #nutcrackersyndrome #growth
Yesterday I went in to Tampa General Hospital for a Laparoscopic Diagnostic Surgery for #Endometriosis , a Cystoscopy to check for #InterstitialCystitis , and Chromotubation (dyeing of the Fallopian tubes during laparoscopy) to check/clear my Fallopian tubes for blockages and see if they are functioning fully & check for infertility. ⁣🌿 _________________________⁣ The results were all unexpected. I do not have Endometriosis as we all thought. Even Dr. M was shocked. No signs of IC, Adenomyosis, or fibroids either. A very small cyst was removed from near one of my tubes and sent to pathology. Dr. M believes there was no way that small cyst was causing all these issues I have and I most likely won’t have any relief from this surgery. Major bummer. He said my #PelvicFloorDysfunction is full-blown #Vaginismus now and put in a slew of PT visits for pre-auth. My #Chromotubation didn’t go as expected, either. The dye was injected through my cervix and immediately backflowed before entering my reproductive system and never got to my tubes. Unfortunately, they believe it was a machine “malfunction” but I will find out more at my post-op appointment on January 8th, 2019. 🌷 • I am disappointed and at a loss. Things didn’t go as planned whatsoever. I am pretty weak and discouraged. Hormone treatments, countless PT visits, every day bleeding, struggling with sleep, a double miscarriage. All of this doctoring for 11 months straight and my answers aren’t even clear. But with ruling out Endo at least we know what it isn’t, right? ⁣🍃 •Our next steps are going to be discussed post op and we’ll go from there. My doctor has been extremely supportive and will be getting together a team of doctors at USF Health and Tampa General Hospital to help join my case and help give me answers. We’re not giving up. The best is still yet to come. I think. 😅 #TryingToBePositive #SomebodySedateMe 🥀🌚
