Relatable sighs all round with this one 👌🏻 @themightysite Whether it’s pain, fatigue, or both; whether you can work or not, there is often comfort knowing you’re not alone in your daily suffering & articles like this do wonders for help raising awareness & aiding understanding 👌🏻I’ll pop the live link in my bio ⬆️ but as I’m often updating it with new research articles I’ll pop it here as well (just wish insta would let them go live in the description box!) https://themighty.com/2017/12/what-to-understand-about-chronic-pain/ #chronicillnessawareness #chronicillnessunderstanding
Just because something is covered doesn’t mean it’s not there. #invisibleillnessawareness #invisibleillness #invisibledisease #invisibledisability
So there was a ladybug in my lettuce this evening. A HUGE part of taking care of yourself when dealing with chronic illness is to make sure your body gets the best fuel. For me this means fresh, local, organic, gluten free, and vegan. It may sound a little extreme to you, but for me it works. Eating this way helps keep my flares down. And yes, I set the ladybug free.

Last night 🙌🏻 🎵🎶 One dream, one soul,
One prize, one goal.
One golden glance of what should be.

It's a kind of magic.

One shaft of light that shows the way.
No mortal man can win this day.

It's a kind of magic.

The bell that rings inside your mind
Is challenging the doors of time.

It's a kind of magic.

The waiting seems eternity.
The day will dawn of sanity.

Is this a kind of magic?
(It's a kind of magic.)
There can be only one.
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done. 🎵🎶
Feeling Feeling strong is a work in progress. I’ve been fighting lung disease all my life. The worst was when I was living in NYC after 9-11, and I was hospitalized for a weeks from the bad air quality. Then in 2013 I was hospitalized for a month with a brutal pneumonia that left me feeling like I wasn’t going to make it. After epic amounts of antibiotics I finally beat the infection, but there was more damage and it took months before I could even think about starting to exercise. That was my wake up call--I had to rethink my health and stop relying on meds to keep me out of the hospital. I started with slow walks on the treadmill, and step my step I worked my way up to jogging, then running. A year later I ran my first 10k! Now I’m motivated to stay focused and set goals, so I continue to train and fight to be healthier and stronger, so one day I may not need a lung-transplant. I’ve been working with a trainer and on my own, running, lifting weights, and cardio--pushing myself to be the healthiest, strongest, I can be. One day my coach asked if I’m interested in competing. I knew I wanted to take on the challenge--it’s not easy with my health problems but I did. I am a fighter. Now I am healthier, and I have the fitness I’ve always wanted. I just competed in my fourth event at the 2017 WFF Asia Pacific Championships in Singapore and can’t wait to compete again. #wff #wffinternational #wffasia #wffbikini #nabbawffasia #fitnessmodel #noncfbronchiectasis #asthma #bronchiectasis #fitmotivation #motivation #fit #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgirls #fitnessgoal #fitforlife #fitlife #fitnessmotivation #fitspiration #fitstagram #fitgirl #fitfam #workoutmotivation #fitnessgoals #healthy #healthylife #invisibleillness

The fourth day we went to the Castle, the San Vito’s Cathedral and Mala Strana neighborhood. The Cathedral is the most beautiful that I’ve seen im my life. ⛪️

I started to feel better but psychologically was not that easy. I was afraid of eating whatever because I didn’t control how was prepared. But I had to feed, so I tried to convince myself that everything would be fine.

We have to realize that the way we manage our mind is one of the most important parts of our disease. 🧠

Good morning world. 🌎💕

4am and I am loving the cold snowy night. Soon others will be waking up only to leave their nice warm beds. Drudge outside. Clean off their cars and go to work. I remember years ago I was that person at 4:30am scraping off my car needing to get to work at 5am. Looking at all the dark windows knowing people were warm and snuggly in a nice cozy dream. I would think "I can't wait till I get to sleep through this". And here I am. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!!!! Off to bed I go. #cancersurvivors #cancer #livingwithcancer #snow #work #sleep #morning #invisibleillness #chronicpain #chronicillness #lifeasiknowit #spoonie #spoonielife #life #lifechanges
What beautiful coloured yarns!
These lovely 3 squares were knitted by the wonderful Jan, who is a 71 year old ME/CFS sufferer.
Jan writes she is very fortunate that she suffers from the mild/ moderate version so there is much she can do and is not entirely housebound. Jan lives alone with her wonderful pedigree Siberian cat, Jack 😺 Jan explains her greatest comfort is patchwork and quilting as she finds it very therapeutic and she is able to create gifts for her family, especially for her grandchildren.
Well they’re wonderful Jan, and I thank you for contributing to the knitathon 😊
Lots of love

DAY 13 of the Christmas Spoonie Challenge: Decorations. I have taken a picture of the decorations and general atmosphere of The Somers Bay Cafe - where my husband took me on a breakfast date today (posting late). Nobody takes the girl who is being fed my a tube to her chest out to eat! Why?! But... Why not?! He's never been one to let my being sick get in the way of our marriage - he just finds ways to work actively with (or around) it. And I sat on one side of the table with my TPN backpack beside me - he sat across the table - and we had our first "date" since this latest set of medical battles began up again back in August. It was perfect (I tasted the flavor of his at least - delicious). And I'm allowed hot cocoa. Yum. So I'm posting up their decorations - holiday AND otherwise... because it was a perfect little moment of port tucked amongst the struggle in the medical storm... ☕💕🌱 #spooniechristmas #spooniechristmaschallenge #spooniechristmas2017 #photochallenge #crohns #ileostomy #ostomy #invisibleillness #pcos #fibro #mastectomy #ittakesguts #tpn #tubefed #montanagirl #montana #somers #somersbaycafe #somersbay #husbandforthewin #family #makesmesmile #findyourhappy #findyourbeauty #itsthelittlethings #dontquit #smallbusiness #lakesidesomers #eatlocal #supportlocal
