A while back we let you know about Vincent Nadon, an ultra-cyclist with #Crohns who planned to ride across Canada to raise funds and awareness for #IBD. So, yeah, he did it. Bravo, Vincent! Read more about his trek at crohnsandcolitis.ca/news.

Love this ! So much about living and thriving is upstairs. Mental attitude is everything. When I start to feel my negative thoughts creep in I tell myself to stop with the negativity and begin to turn my bad thoughts into positive ones. It’s not easy especially when things aren’t going my way.
..
During my trail race last Saturday my adrenaline got the best of my blood sugars and I ran the entire race in the high 200’s. I had planned for a situation like this and brought a pre filled syringe with me. At mile 3 I stopped and walked and gave myself insulin. I started to feel sad and mad that my diabetes was hindering my performance but I remembered how much I’ve been through with this disease and how a high blood sugar wasn’t going to stop me from doing the best I could in my race.
..
I kept running hard for the next 3 and when I crossed the finish line felt so good about myself that I overcame the challenge of the actual race and the obstacles that I faced that morning. #nevergiveup ..

Courage is facing the unknown with an open heart and a strong belief that whatever the outcome, it is in direct alignment for where you’re suppose to be.

banana-strawberry nice cream for breakfast this morning. I haven’t been feeling hungry at all for about a month. Not sure why exactly. But because of that I have been feeling guilty every time I eat, torn between the idea that you should listen to your body and it’s cues,!and the fact that I’ve had no appetite but know that I have to eat to fuel myself, especially since I’ve still been working out. This morning though, for the first time in a while, I woke up feeling soooo hungry 😂. Felt good to finally feel my body asking for food. It’s hard to find the balance between what you’re feeling and what you know you have to do. 🌺🤔 #vegan #type1diabetes

Your sleep can tell you so much about your health and stress. .
.
For the past few days, my POTS has been pretty calm. I’m on the lowest dose of ivabradine (heart-rate lowering medication) and I slept like a rock— even got bradycardic while sleeping! (See the blue). .
.
A week ago, I was dealing with a lot of stress and was on the highest dose of ivabradine that I take and had poorer sleep! I never got below 60BPM the entire night! .
.
Fun tidbit: apparently people on average have a sleeping heart rate 24 BPM slower at it’s lowest compared to your resting HR when awake!

Getting to the root cause through journaling 📘✏️.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pictured here is my dear friend, and fellow thyroid warrior, Ali. I was beyond thrilled when she agreed to model for me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I knew exactly where I wanted to shoot first: Big Tree Park in Glendora. I mean, come on! This tree is gorgeous. It’s roots are massive. There is such strength and wisdom in this tree. You feel it as soon as you see it. 🌳 All of these roots have helped it grow.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you go driving down the internet highway (ok more like spiraling into the dark abyss) looking for info about thyroid disease, you are bound to see the words ‘root cause’ pop up. There isn’t an exact cause for thyroid disorders that is the same for everyone and so the words ‘root cause’ feel more accurate.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of my root causes was from a supplement that I had a bad reaction to. I knew I felt off from it right away but I kept taking it because everyone highly recommended it. Within that short amount of time my TSH skyrocketed from 1.340 to 50.0. Yep. Fifty!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My growth was that I learned to listen to my body better and prioritize what my body is saying over what other people recommend (no matter how convincing).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some food for thought:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How has identifying your root causes helped you grow?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you haven’t identified any root causes yet, what are some ways you can listen to your body better? If your thyroid journey wanted to give you a message, what would it say?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Honored to share my MS story on @ms_4_ms blog today!
I also talked about my new MS photography project!
MS always makes me feel isolated and many times anxious. It’s not easy to live in a roller coaster 24/7. But just sharing how I feel and realize I’m not alone is a relief.
Together we’re stronger than MS!

Dinner was @bfreefoods pittas from @tescofood then I cooked up some buckwheat mix with water and veg stock, then dry fried some veggies up and squashed a avocado 🥑 with lime, pepper, salt, onion granules & garlic granules, filled it all up and it was magnificent 😍 then had some pears 🍐! #vegan #veggie #fruits #pittabread #quinoa #buckwheat #vegancommunity #tesco #dinnertime #yumyum #chronicillness #cfs #intermittentfasting
Dock yoga today!  Did a shorter walk today to make it back in time to hit the farmers  market with my brother and sister in law. Hoping to find people that are growing #cannabis here to learn about the process here on the eastern seaboard and find out what strains are popular out here. As I explained to my parents - both Shawn and I are excited to learn as much as we can about growing my own medicine - I am feeling like I can some day have  control over my medicine and that is an amazing feeling.  After years of relying on some random doctor guessing at what my body needs I am listening to my own body and feeling better than I have in years! #lovemymmjlife #marthasvineyard

I don't know where I am at times... Adrift between Rise and Surrender, I somehow find my own kind of balance. Some days just ask to not be anchored...and I've come to accept that that's ok too. Just gotta flow with it and explore :) ✌🏼️💛🌟 ~Leila  www.facebook.com/rebelthrivers⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

❤️ I love painting, it’s my go to when I feel overwhelmed, anxious, scattered and unsettled. It’s part of my self care. I have been learning so many tools to calm my nervous system and soothe myself when needed and I’m trying to implement them as much as I can. I also love that it makes me feel productive and creative at the same time 😀 -----------------------------------------------

These pictures were taken three days apart

Some days I am able to put regular clothes on, do my makeup, and smile all day long
.
Other days I am stuck in bed the left side of my face is swollen and drooping, nauseous, aches, exhaustion, with an IV detox bag in my arm

Lyme disease got me living a double life

This song embodies how I feel about the people who are responsible for me going from being someone with a chronic illness to someone dying from chronic illness. You know who you are, and while I have forgiven you, I have not forgotten. I promise you I will live long enough to look you in the eye and tell the world the truth about what you did to me and others. ✌🏻
‘Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I'll just say this is "I wish you farewell"
I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin'
I hope your soul is changin', changin'
I hope you find your peace’ -Kesha

From the commercials I’ve seen, it sounds like the cast chose to be on Castaways because they wanted to get away from their issues. I couldn’t help but think that their issues would only be magnified as they lived all alone on an island. It’s interesting to see how they handle being alone and how some of the react to finding others. I see the cast fighting mentally, physically, and emotionally. It’s eerily similar to living with a chronic illness. A chronically ill person is often forced to deal with isolation, situations out of their control, becoming dependent on their circumstances and struggle to find a way out.

Embrace change.  If you are feeling stuck, look to see what the source is and how or what you can change to help you move forward again.  You may find comfort in routine.  You may be wary of change.  You may have the mindset that says, well, that's the way it's always been.  We all get stuck now and then for these and other reasons.  Sit quietly and listen for what you really need.  You know it in your core, in your gut.  Listen for it and listen to it.  It will not steer you wrong. 😊

I don’t care what’s happening in your life today. It will get better.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Seasons come, seasons go. Some are light & some are dark. All teach us important lessons.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
After years of doctors telling me I was not sick and it was all in my head, after begging and pleading with God over and over again to help me feel better, 5 years ago this July, suddenly, a doctor listened to me and said he could help. And he did. Suddenly, as I showed up and trusted, things changed. ⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Suddenly happens fast and slow. While I was in it, going through surgery and healing at the hospital felt like eternity, but now as I look back I see how Suddenly it all happened.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
I believe suddenly comes as we show up, believe, trust and surrender.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
It gets better. I’ve been sick, really sick.  I’ve felt heart broken. I’ve trudged back and forth for years to jobs I hated.  In all, I had times of feeling so hopeless.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
But, I know that I know, no matter what,  it will get better. That’s what I learned from my seasons of hard times.  I am living a life beyond my wildest dreams now & I still have challenges. I trust now that it will always get better.
.⠀
.⠀
For today, all we have to do is:⠀
Show up. ⠀
Trust.⠀
Surrender.⠀
Repeat.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
And borrow faith if you need. I’ve borrowed a lot of people’s faith to make it through. Go ahead and take some of mine today if it helps. 🙏🏻

Thankful for my Get Well Soon gifts from my husband yesterday. In better spirits today... Thank you to all who wished me well.

Almond, Cashew, and Chia energy balls with @formnutrition performance protein powder 😋 helps to keep your energy levels up (hahaha is that even possible with a chronic illness?!) 😴
.
Eating plant based means it can be hard to get enough protein 🌿🍃 but these little balls certainly help 😍
Definitely recommend Form protein powder as well if you are vegan 💪🐾

Nachschub an MS Medikament abgeholt. Zack, wollte der Neurologe doch noch eine Abklärung machen und schon verstreicht eine Stunde. Die Kids haben im Wartezimmer Papierflugzeuge gefaltet und durften bei der Stromuntersuchung dabei sein.

Y'all, it has been a hot minute... I can explain.... I got married, went on a honeymoon, moved into a new house, started my new job, and got accepted at the Vanderbilt Autonomic Dysfunction clinic as a patient, all while getting used to living as a newly married couple, learning how to take care of our own home, training my service puppy, and still dealing with all of the health issues that don't stop even when you're super busy. In the last two months, I've still dealt with my chronic back pain, I've still dealt with gastroparises, I've still dealt with PCOS, asthma, and of course POTS. Time doesn't slow down when you get sick, and chronic illness definitely doesn't give you a break when you ask for one. Of course, I'm incredibly thankful, as always, for the people in my life who make it all possible for me, especially my husband and my Scout. Hopefully I'll be able to post more often now that we are falling into a more regular routine. I wish you all many spoons!! #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #scoliosis #potssyndrome #pots #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #gastroparesis #asthma #pcos #polycysticovariansyndrome #tachycardia #spoonie #dowhatyouthinkyoucantdo #potsproblems #chronicpainproblems #servicedog #servicedogintraining #sdit #miniaussie #miniatureaustralianshepherd #cardiacalertdog #servicepupper #puppy

Just an update from this morning! I hope the sun is shining where you are. The move isn’t going perfectly but the movers are being perfect so that’s great.

Day 1 post-op #cholecystectomy 😬 This belly sure has been through a lot.  Puffed up with CO2 from yesterday’s surgery, striped with memories of my two pregnancies, bruised every two weeks from Humira shots, and now these four new battle wounds
.
While I’m unsure if I’ll ever have the confidence to rock a teeny bikini 👙 ever again, I’m learning to embrace this body more each and every day. It’s so easy to be frustrated when your body is LITERALLY fighting itself (thanks #autoimmune 😠) but the big picture is that I’m a #Crohnswarrior. And this squishy, scarred belly is my rap sheet of all that I’ve overcome.

Post hospital appointment sushi cheat treat & green tea @marksandspencer 🤗 🍣🍱☕ I'm in so much RA and EDS pain right now I swear all of my muscles and bones are trying to strangle me to death! Chronic autoimmune illness means very little functional time. I lose half my week to illness. That means cramming everything else into that remaining time, including the day to day stuff. All of which just makes us more ill.

When we do ask for a bit of help we often don't get it as people see us as 'independent' and 'getting on with it' but it's just we have no choice. Chronic illness is not like a flu it is for life and it is painful/ soul destroying and exhausting. But if we didn't 'carry on' we wouldnt eat/ shower/ get to hosp/ go on holiday/ but trust me we are suffering all the time! 
Hospital appointments start the day before when we plan our morning routine which invloves what time to shower/ take meds/ dress in a way that doesnt over increase our subject to pain/ passing out.

We are on the go non stop and hospital appointments are not just time consuming, they are life draining, increase pain, fatigue & can take days to recover from one & I use the term 'recover' losely. It is not the same as a day at work. BEING TIRED IS NOT THE SAME AS FATIGUE!

Often we are given bad news about our health or almost worse they don't know what to do! Sometimes we miss appointments because the privatised car park are full & when we do get a space we have to pay through the nose because we have no choice. Waiting rooms rarely have windows & never open (most chronic illnesses affect oxygen levels) & the waits are LONG! 
As disabled people we are conditioned to wait our turn/ dont complain/ accept our fate. Who can we complain to anyway? It's not the doctor's/ physio/ specialist's fault, most are awesome. 
It's the fault of the government who determines how much support/ staff/ funds our NHS gets and in turn how worthwhile we as patients are ☹

And when someone with a chronic illness asks for help know  that means they really bloody need it! 😦

So yesterday, I mentioned that I’m going to be starting the “endometriosis diet” soon. I think the reason it’s taken me so long to decide to try it is due to the volume of sources available with often conflicting information, it can be overwhelming! At the moment I’m in what I’m calling “the planning phase” so I’m cross referencing food lists provided by a number of sources associated with “the endometriosis diet” and highlighting the foods that show up consistently in the “approved” sections (any that are inconsistent, showing up on just one or two lists I will leave out). Once I’ve done that, although the endo diet will be my main focus, I’m going to compare my list against foods compatible with the paleo & fodmap diets too & hopefully over time I will find the most suitable, healthy diet for me. I plan to share this journey with you & I’ll be grateful for any tips or words of support along the way as I’m not the most disciplined person 😬 I know it will be a struggle but I’m willing to do what it takes to get my life my back 🙌🏼🤞🏼🌿🍴🎗 #endodiet #endometriosisdiet #paleo #fodmap #diet #nutrition #health #lifestyle #chronicillness #healing #naturalhealth #health #womenshealth #wellness #journey #support #endometriosis #healingwithfood #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #inspo #motivation #instagood #blog #blogger #food #foodie

Wahooo celebrating 2,5 months without coffee!!
I just don’t care for it anymore cravings are done and I’m on herbal tea and the occasional #matcha latte ( which does contain small amounts of caffeine). Life is so much better and I think the next five years at least i am going to aim to be coffee free - if not for life! So not worth it !!

Day 8: Started with sausage. My pain level is high today. And my anxiety is too. Woke up feeling just miserable. I went to the ZC fb group I was apart of 3 years ago and searched for my old posts. I’m glad I did too because it helped me remember a few things. 1)my belly was super noisy all the time then as well eating this way. 2)I had more bacon then. Maybe the extra fattiness helped me. 3)my use of anything other than dry spices was very limited. 4)I was losing quickly and feeling good.  Fast forward to now...I’m not losing, my energy levels are still low, and I’m bloated. I will say that I can partially blame this on my cycle (had a hysterectomy but still have one ovary that takes me through the motions every month). Anyway, I feel frustrated with my body. But I’m content with the food and I have no cravings so I know it’s doing something. Anyway, that’s my day 8 update. #carnivoreketo #ketocarnivore #carnivore  #meateggcheese #_cherylsjourney_ #healingmybody #healingwithfood #autoimmunedisease #fibromyalgia #heartdisease #coronaryarterydisease #fibrowarrior #fibromyalgia #hashimotos #pcos #raynauds #spoonie #thycawarrior #thyroidcancer #osteoarthritis #cherylswljourney #glutenfree #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #meatheals #carnivorediet #timetoheal

🎗In March I decided it was necessary to start documenting every time I had a migraine. We knew I had a lot of them, especially when I started having side effects from my migraine medication because of excessive use, but now we can actually see how big of a problem it is. 
I wish I had done this when I was younger. Maybe it would have saved me years of being ignored and belittled by medical professionals.

I’m very lucky to have a flat with access to a garden and the health to be able to enjoy it. I hadn’t been out of the house in a while due to my health but I’m getting there and I’m grateful for these moments.

Yesterday @fibromyalgieblog shared a post which inspired me to do this post. A post about everything I should and can be proud of, because thats something that will always be forgotten. I want to share this to remind myself what I can be proud of over the years, especially because my way as a chronic sick person was different than others. I need it to build some selfconfidence, so this post is not to brag, but because I need it. You can be proud too.
.
.
I live with depression and other mental health issues for over 18 years and survived countless suicide attempts. My will to live is stronger than everything that happened to break me. I survived 3 psych wards, open and closed ward, with being fixen to bed with my hands and feet. I survived years and years of sexual, physical and emotional abuse, which made me stronger and kinder as a person. I have survived 15 years of selfharm and quit on my own. I am in intensive treatment for almost 12 years and I still want to fight. I received my MBO diploma after failing and trying for 7 years. After they have send me from school 3 times and didn’t pas the schoolyear for 5. After teachers said I will never, ever get a diploma. I got it. I am proud of my relationship with my husband which only gets stronger. We survived SO much and he never wanted to leave and stayed by my side. I live with chronic pain since I am 12, when my fibromyalgia started and now I dont know how to live without pain and still do everything on foot and on my own, trying to depend on no one else. I live with Crohns disease since I am 18, which gave me the most physical pain I have ever been through for months and I dont want to let it lead my life. I am a mom of a beautiful daughter and I am trying my best to parent and teach with mental and physical illnesses. I shared my story about selfharm at my husband class full of strangers and working on being a experience experts and give lessond about mental health ‘professionally’. I was interviewed and filmed multiple times to share my story with already millions of people, which scares me, but is something I can be very, very, proud of (thanks to my friends to help me remind me of it, thank you ❤️).

I am proud of my relationship with my husband which only gets stronger. We survived SO much and he never wanted to leave and stayed by my side. I live with chronic pain since I am 12, when my fibromyalgia started and now I dont know how to live without pain and still do everything on foot and on my own, trying to depend on no one else. I live with Crohns disease since I am 18, which gave me the most physical pain I have ever been through for months and I dont want to let it lead my life. I am a mom of a beautiful daughter and I am trying my best to parent and teach with mental and physical illnesses. I shared my story about selfharm at my husband class full of strangers and working on being a experience experts and give lessond about mental health ‘professionally’. I was interviewed and filmed multiple times to share my story with already millions of people, which scares me, but is something I can be very, very, proud of (thanks to my friends to help me remind me of it, thank you ❤️).
I know you didn’t get a handbook on the care and feeding of your soul, me either. Feed your soul with good self care, compassion and kindness for yourself.

Thinking of all the places on fire right now, gosh the smoke is so thick you can’t hardly see the water. Today is a big day. I’m so so nervous. Headed to Seattle to meet with an infectious disease doctor to hopefully get some answers and a plan for this #lymedisease and kick it’s ass. It’s been a long run of “I don’t know” and “I can’t help you” and “get your psych meds under control, then we can talk about your pain” even though those meds have been in control for years. I just want to be a functional person again. Wish me luck ❤️

Do you have EBV & MCAS? Some theorize that acute and/or chronic EBV infections can trigger a secondary mast cell activation. Others believe that MCAS can make a person more susceptible to stubborn viral infections. What do you think?

There’s many days when my daughter comes home from school/summer camp/ or wherever it is he has been, and unfortunately I’m in bed. 🛌

There used to be fewer days but unfortunately over the last few weeks there’s been more ‘stuck in bed’ days. .
☹️
.
 I always wonder how me being ill affect her, yes she acts up like any toddler and yes I usually blame myself. But Iv also seen how amazing and caring she is every day. If the lights are off and I’m asleep she won’t even come in, if I’m up but resting in bed she comes running in (sometimes jumping all over the bed - very painful) and she will tell me about her day. She likes to always make sure I have a hot water bottle, and give me lots of hugs and kisses. .
😙😘 .
Some days I’ll manage to get up and spend time with her, I wish for more of those days. I wish for the days that I can take her out and I can do more with her. It’s so hard lying here and missing her, watching her in action being the amazing little girl she is (except for when she’s naught which happens sometimes 😬). 💪

I wish I had the strength to be a real mum ❤️😢 🎗️ 🎗️ 🎗️ #endometriosis #endometriosisblog #endometriosisawareness #adenomiosis #adenomiosiswarrior #adenomiosisawareness #mum #mumwithchronicillness #chronicillnesssuccks #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #pain #painmedication #medicalmarijuana #medicalcannabis #life #bloggerstyle #blog #instadaily #instalife

It's now August 15 and yet still no MRI done or no doctor visits.
My insurance somehow can't find a place that does mir with IVF sedation. I have been struggling with them for 3 months now. My pain has gotten a lot worse. I am taking the maximum dosage of ibuprofen everyday. I just lay in bed and hope I don't get the pain. 
I bought a wheel chair because I have been home for a while now and wanted to go out. But even being in the wheel chair caused me pain. I would get home, my massage my leg and fall asleep. Around 3 or 4 AM I was up in screaming pain. Night time is always the hardest. The pain seems to be strong every day. Hopefully today, I can get scheduled so I be one step closer to recovery

The things that feel like bad dreams are often the things that keep us going 🧡
.
Despite all the random pains and seemingly bottomless pit of "I'm just so tired", it's amazing to think how far I've come from the absolute lowest point of this brutal illness
.
This is 2yrs ago vs. today. Its not easy to compare because of the light but for months I needed to use both hands to pick up a cup of tea, I couldn't cuddle my lovely nephews or write for long at all, today I am full of #gratitude

Join us this Saturday at the @120diner for an amazing night of comedy, music & drag hosted by @pepper_mache ! All proceeds will go towards funding the production of a brand new play written by me in collaboration with my incredible team at @lunamtheatrecompany including @davrielle18
Our show explores the struggles and realities faced by youth living with chronic illnesses and invisible disabilities. As someone who has lived with chronic illnesses since childhood, I have always wanted to explore my story and the story of others like me through art. I am so lucky to be able to embark on that journey now and grateful to have the support of my collective and my family and friends to do so. So come on out this Saturday and join us in making art that makes a difference!

Recipe Details:
-
Preheat oven to 350 / Bake 13 min / cool 10
-
1 cup Bob Red Mills almond flour (not the super fine, just regular) 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt, 1/3 cup coconut sugar, 1 cup room temp almond butter, 1 egg, 3/4 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips. Optional: two tbsp of pure maple syrup for added sweetness.
-
I literally just throw all ingredients in one bowl and combine! 👍🏻🙂 -

My priorities right now: 
1. Take time to read my Bible and worship. Center and ground myself.
2. Take more baths and take time to feel relaxed and de-stress.
3. Take all my supplements and meds daily
4. Eat healthy and care for my body through food. 
5. Start working out again

I have always been a super active person but with all of the pain, comes a lack of interest in actually moving your body. However, my doctor wants me to start working out again to help with pain levels (seems backwards to me) but I’m gonna try. Anything to relieve this lol
