This is what someone with RA/Lupus looks like during a flare Thank God I am able to afford self-care and have a flexible work schedule. Yesterday was rough. Thanks to @lifetouchal

All the glitz and glam up in here. Heat is seriously the only thing providing any relief for this headache right now.
2 Years ago today, I remember standing in the back with all the adults, after a guest pastor preached, inviting the youths who's heart were open and tender to accept Jesus Christ as their savior. I remember sitting with a girl, talking to her, showing her verses and saying "we don't know what tomorrow holds. It could happen anytime. Tonight could be my last day" I was happy she made a decision that day, that will have an impact for eternity. Little did I know, hours later I would suffer a heart attack.
I can't say life has gotten easier, but life is precious and I make sure to savor every second of it. You don't know when it will be your last day. I was blessed, it wasnt my last day. I learned to let go of people that made my life stressful and be tender and focus on the people who love me. I learned to try everything, to conquer the world like there is no tomorrow. Best of all that my God is always with me. I still have ways to go, but little by little I'll continue to crush them 💜

Vulnerable Post alert!! DON’T FORGET TO SWIPE
Back before I started LIIFT 4 we were in the process of spending time and saying goodbye to our friends before my husband PCSed.
I was doing quick cardio sessions. Not eating enough (which is bad) and just completely draining myself trying to make everything happen. My loose skin became less tight and I just started feeling uncomfortable with it again for the first time in a long time.
I was so excited for LIIFT 4 because with my Lupus and RA and all my other health issues , some of the workouts were really becoming a challenge. I like that the exercises were basic and not crazy. It allowed me to really lift heavier than I ever have.
I know you have been wondering , well she finished where are her results??? Right freaking here!! I had mishaps with hotel stays and during the move but I did MY best. And I am still shocked this happened with only working out 4 days a week!! I’m still mind blown.
I lifted weights. Did some HIIT and I ATE food. No starving here. And a cheat day!! LIIFT 4 basically gave me a lift everywhere. Let’s just say this booty ain’t fittin in no size 0 now!! 😂 GAINZ.
And my body did so much better with basic moves. It’s the least amount of pain I’ve ever had with my workouts.
Don’t let anything hold you back. No illness. No excuses. If you want it, you can achieve it. You Just have to be brave enough to go after it.
I’ll be doing round 2 of this amazing program starting the 1st in my challenge group.
Who else wants these kinds of results with 4 workouts a week?

Although I spend a lot of time in reflection and introspection, these past couple of weeks have been nothing short of amazing. I have come to know myself in a new way and have discovered some interesting things that I didn't recognize before. I've been taking time to look over all of my Facebook and Instagram posts. I didn't realize just how transparent and open I've been since coming to social media after being gone for well over 3 years. Quite honestly before going on sabbatical, I would have never shared such things because I felt that they wouldn't represent me all of who I am in the best light: The Strategist, Therapist, Mother, Professional, Businesswoman, Author, Keynote Speaker, Poet, Strategist and Coach. I used to share a limited dimensional piece of myself that didn't allow me to tell the full stories all the time because I was concerned about what people would think. Now I just don't care anymore. But there's something about that inside work and time away that gives you the opportunity to elevate, evolve and grow! I realize that no matter how many hats that I wear, they all sit at the top of the head of a woman with a story. So I own and embrace who I am and share my story the best way that I know how...with wisdom.

My name is Sesalie pronounced like (Ses-uh-lee). I have been diagnosed with SLE. (Systematic Lupus Erythematous). I have been receiving treatment for it everyday of my life since I was 13. I had been in and out of the hospital for a year. 3-4 times a month I was in the Emergency Room. I couldn’t breathe very well. They could never find anything wrong with my lungs. I was prescribed muscle relaxers numerous times. It came to a point where the doctors thought I was faking.
While I was thinking they didn’t know how to do their job. I knew something was wrong with me and no one could get to the bottom of it. Flash forward 8 years here I am. I’ve been taking prednisone everyday since I’ve been diagnosed. My current medications are Prednisone, Nexium, Imuran, Plaquenil, and a few more. I was recently put on the Imuran and Plaquenil because I ended up getting Vasculitis.
It was pretty severe. I ended up hospitalised this past year. I had mini strokes and ended up doing chemo. My brain was swollen and I was actually so close to dying. So much has happened. I can honestly say my life has changed dramatically since being diagnosed with having Lupus. I’m exhausted all the time and my bones hurt with weather changes. My joints tend to swell almost all the time. I have discovered that I’m now allergic to foods and medications I wasn’t allergic to before.
I can’t be in the heat or sun longer then 15 minutes without feeling nauseous or dizzy or overall just sick. I have my family that helps me when I really need it. I read as much as I can. I spend a lot of days in bed. I’ve learned to listen to my body. Even if it seems to other people I’m being “dramatic” I know my body and that’s what matters. Some days are worse then others. Flares can last weeks at a time.
What makes the Lupus more of a struggle is the fact that I have type 1 Diabetes and CMT4 and a few other auto-immune disorders as well. My advice for anyone that is suffering from Lupus is to take it all one day at a time. #lupusawareness #lupuslife #lupuswarrior #autoimmunedisease #lupusflare #lupussurvivor #lupusadvocate #lupussupport #lupusproblems #lupusrash #livingwithlupus #lupusrash #lupushelp
