Headed to the Dr. for a little outpatient procedure. This rain and flooding in Nashville is bringing back memories of a a few years ago when we were all under water! Stay safe out there! I drive the Jeep, so I’m good, I can go anywhere!
Out of ER again. This photo we wasn’t from the Abbott ER trip. But I am just going to use it anyways. So I got out of one ER Sunday night and all was going well.
However, apparently yesterday at school, Tuesday, I started yelling, I was crying, couldn’t make choices, wandering, etc etc. So the school resource officer wound up calling a crisis. The concussion was making me upset and having “strong behavioural changes” and I had to get checked out. Hmm... and not even into a week at school, another ambulance shows up... dang it.
So, up in another ER. Haha, I must have been freaking out a lot as I wound up in restraints and sedated.

~ Enjoying this NY winter in Rochester, working on building bigger and better things for our scribes ❄️
CM type I occurs when the section of your skull containing a part of your brain (cerebellum) is too small or is deformed, thus putting pressure on and crowding your brain. The lower part, or tonsils, of the cerebellum are displaced into your upper spinal canal.
CM type II is nearly always associated with a form of spina bifida called myelomeningocele.
When the cerebellum is pushed into your upper spinal canal, it can interfere with the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid that protects your brain and spinal cord.
This impaired circulation of cerebrospinal fluid can lead to the blockage of signals transmitted from your brain to your body, or to a buildup of spinal fluid in the brain or spinal cord.
Alternatively, the pressure from the cerebellum upon the spinal cord or lower brainstem can cause neurological signs or symptoms.
There's some evidence that CM runs in some families. However, research into a possible hereditary component is still in its early phase.
In some people, CM can become a progressive disorder and lead to serious complications. In others, there may be no associated symptoms, and no intervention is necessary. The complications associated with this condition include:
Hydrocephalus. An accumulation of excess fluid within your brain (hydrocephalus) may require placement of a flexible tube (shunt) to divert and drain the cerebrospinal fluid to another area of your body.
Spina bifida. A condition in which your spinal cord or its covering isn't fully developed, may occur in CM. Part of the spinal cord is exposed, which can cause serious conditions such as paralysis. People with CM type II usually have a form of spina bifida called myelomeningocele.
Syringomyelia. Some people with CM also develop a condition called syringomyelia, in which a cavity or cyst (syrinx) forms within the spinal column.
Tethered cord syndrome. In this condition, your spinal cord attaches to your spine and causes your spinal cord to stretch. This can cause serious nerve and muscle damage in your lower body.
Don’t freeze to death out there. 💀 Any slip and falls this winter, you know where to come for therapy. #MrBones
after 2.5 weeks we've got therapy again later today, and i've probably never been less motivated to talk about what happened 🙃 it's incredible stressful to bring up the topics and struggles over and over again, only to go home afterwards feeling even more shit than before. of course i still know how important it is to talk, and to open up about what's going on but still, i'm just so tired ?
also our supervisors still think we should go inpatient at another clinic where they would actually treat us instead, but i don't really believe in change or chances anymore. honestly just writing this down feels wrong, and i'm sorry for being like that, but after 16 years of constant therapy we're beyond tired. tired of failing, falling, hurting, and most of all, tired of watching our world fall apart over and over again.
Call us today. We are ready to help you on your journey to a thriving life in sobriety. 1-888-DFW-ARISE #WeDoRecover
I went to Nami Peer Support Monday evening and my psychiatry appointment today. Something between the two reminded me of an activity I completed for myself in the psychiatric ward back in December. Personally, it was hard for me to process at first that I was Bipolar 2 or even Bipolar at all. I, unconsciously, had processed all the stigmas and suddenly thought I was being labeled as so much more than Bipolar and was receiving judgment. These were feelings I felt because of my lack of education about mental illnesses and the disempowering stigmas. So what did I do? I relied on my list making tendencies and made a pros and cons list (recreated an example in the picture). What are all the cons that made me scared such as “losing the bouts of extreme productivity” (which is proven by science to be a myth), but also what are the pros that made me who I am today? Not everything on my pros list like if I had listed “ambition- in relation to passion and productivity” means I complete tasks in a healthy manner or that I should continue on that course. It just means that Bipolar 2 is a part of me and helps me at times to be my best and in different times it can keep me down or anxious. I don’t suffer from Bipolar 2 though because that would neglect all the good that has come from it and how it has positively affected me as a person. This most likely will be a lifelong condition, but the medications will help balance the pros and cons to live a happier life at my baseline. I will continue to live my best life even if it includes living with Bipolar 2.
Upper back pain?
Create better habits.
Starting with CELL PHONES.
Hold phones to nose/eye level.
Tuck in your elbows.
Lock tour shoulder blades into place.
Tuck chin back.
One of the most convenient devices in the world is single handedly ruining the most advanced species on this earth.
Start with good habits now, not just to alleviate muscular discomfort or headaches, but to help reduce risk of long term effects such as muscle imbalances leading to horrible horrible posture putting yourself at high risk of falls.
Stay woke children.

there are weeks I’m discouraged when patients aren’t listening to recommended nutrition advice, are losing weight and significantly struggling with their eating, and there are other weeks when I see patients return to their regular selves once a feeding tube is placed and give me a big old hug, or hit their calorie goals throughout treatment and maintain their weight, or come back for a follow up after months and are doing so well and remember me
working in healthcare can be one heck of a challenge but I wouldn’t have it any other way
the outpatient setting has allowed me to build relationships with the patients I’m helping and their family members and I hope in a small way I can make what they’re going through during their cancer journey the tiniest bit easier
(and shoutout to these fellow outpatient loving, hokie dietitians I’m lucky enough to call my coworkers 💁🏼♀️💕)
Reposting our RAPID 3R Step, just so we know you understand... RAPID 3R Step!
Restore, Regenerate, Return!
These 3 steps have been the key to my patients RAPID success. .
The first R is to help Restore your anatomy. Durning the time of surgery, I anatomically help restore & repair your injury. Restoring your functions so you can start to return to your normal life. .
The 2nd R of the step process is to Regenerate. After we surgically restore, your body needs time to mend & heal. Sometimes your body needs a little extra kick start. To help accelerate your RAPID healing process, we like to use the help of Regenerative Injection Therapy Treatments at the time of surgery or after. These treatments are PRP and
Amniotic Tissues based Stem Cells. .
The 3rd R is to Return.
After we Restore & Regenerate, comes the hard work of conditioning yourself so you can Return back to play/work. The return to play is a patient individualized accelerated rehabilitation process to return patients in typically half the time as historical. Rehabilitating yourself so you can get back to your normal activities and the things you love to do. .
Having surgery could be a scary subject to think about. But my Team & I will be by your side every step of the way. Our jobs is to get you smiling again, and we will not stop until our mission is complete. .
If you would like to set up a consultation, please Call 213-328-3600
We will be happy to answer any questions you have!

18.02.19 - a day I will forever remember.
I’m SO SO SO happy to say that yesterday I got my period for the first time since Dec 2016!!!! It had honestly got to the point I was afraid I’d never get it back. I wish I could tell you a step by step method. Some magic secret to getting it back but the truth is there isn’t one. Everyone’s different BUT all that I can say for sure is that you need to commit 100000% to recovery.
Now comes the hard part. I’m not weight restored. I’m not fully recovered...so now what? Immediately my ED bombarded me with thoughts like: “okay now you can’t gain anymore weight, you’re healthy” “now that you’ve got your period you can exercise/go to the gym” “now you can stop your meal plan you’re healthy” “now you don’t need dessert” etc but the truth is I’m nowhere near the end of my recovery journey. In fact I’m probably at a crucial stage. The make or break stage. Physically I’m getting there - I mean getting my period is another sign this is true BUT mentally I still have a long ways to go. And that’s OKAY. Recovery is so much more than weight restoring and getting your period back. It’s about healing yourself both physically and mentally. It’s about self love/acceptance, it’s about finding yourself again...and I’m still working on it but I know I’m going to get there✨
Joint replacements!! 🤔
The knee and hip are the two most common joint replacements and these don’t have to be scary...yes these are large and big surgeries, but if you have a great surgeon and a top notch PT in your pocket, your fear should diminish!
We treat patients of all ages with joint replacements daily...let us know if you or someone you know is a candidate for a joint replacement surgery.
What some of you may not know is that if you need surgery, you would greatly benefit from what we call “pre-hab”. This is where we get your muscles and joint as strong as possible before surgery and it leads to better outcomes after surgery! 🤯
We want to get you back to your life faster, so let us know where we can help! 👍🏻 #physicaltherapist #louisville #sharelouisville #physicaltherapy #kentucky #aoptky #jointreplacement #totalkneereplacement #totalhipreplacement #privatepractice #outpatient #kpta #apta

Throwback to these odd butterfly cupcakes I made back in 2015 🙈
Fun fact: I used to want to open a bakery! Aaaand then it became borderline-disordered thanks to my ED.
It feels so strange to look back on my pre-ED self; it feels like I'm observing some foreign creature, not Younger Me. Baking, ballet, and family made up my entire life; now, I'm rarely baking, I haven't taken a ballet class in over a year (pointe in over 3), and my relationship with my family is rocky at best.
But that's not to say I haven't found more things to fill my time with; I've been doing yoga, crocheting, watching Grey's Anatomy, and writing more (mainly random snippets of a novel I hope to write + LOTS of edgy poems). It's definitely a different set of activities from what I used to do, but that doesn't make it bad. I'm enjoying what I'm doing, and that's all that matters.
I guess it's all part of that "self-discovery" thing - you know, the one that helps you realize there is more to you than your eating disorder? .
Another thing I've learned? I don't have to have my life revolve around social media. I would've posted a picture of me doing yoga or something more current, but I didn't feel like dropping everything I was doing just so I could get a picture 💁

Bereavement and end of life’s are tough.
Here’s a little chart of the breakdown for the terms and how you can help your patients / siblings understand.
Back in the Family Medicine Clinic and feeling pretty happy about my career choice. Today I performed an excisional biopsy of a sebaceous cyst, trigger point injection of muscle spasm, and a PAP smear for cervical cancer screening. That’s what I love about family medicine, I get a little bit of everything! 👩🏻⚕️❤️
I was asked recently what are three things that make a good doctor. I don’t know the correct answer they were specific looking for, but my answers were:
1. Listen to your patients
2. Read because medicine is continually changing
3. Know your limitations
As a family medicine physician, I have the capacity to do so many things! I do not need to refer every acne patient to a dermatologist for management. I do not need to refer a patient to OBGYN for a routine Pap smear or even a low risk pregnancy. I do not need to refer to an orthopedic surgeon for joint injections. The list goes on and on. But it is important to know your limitation. A family medicine physician is not “just the referral doctor” but know when someone needs a higher level of care that you are unable to provide. .
Have you seen your primary care provider lately. And if you haven’t, what are some of the barriers you have experienced? .
