Day 30 - Community 
I’ve already talked a little about it the other day but a huge source of community for me is Instagram. 🤳
Everyone I’ve met on here has made me feel so much less alone, and I’m meeting new people all the time. 🤳
I know very few people irl with fibromyalgia and even less in my local area so sometimes it is hard to have a sense of community. Especially when people you do know irl either don’t believe you or are just plain bored of your being ill. So besides my core group of family and friends I get my greatest sense of belonging from my insta friends. Thanks guys, love you all.

A small imaging study by Dr. Sara Lazar, PhD et al examine the different impacts on brain structure and development by different mind-body tools.⁣
⁣
The relaxation program resulted in improving areas of the brain related to deliberate control. The mindfulness program improved development of sensory awareness and perception. It also decreased rumination and increased self-compassion.⁣
⁣
Both styles have value, and increased understanding of how the brain operates can assist the application of these techniques in healthcare. Link to the article report in bio.⁣

Sometimes I can get through life just dandy, and then ME smacks me in the face with a ton of bricks. This weekend has been my worst BY FAR for a LONG TIME. I guess it's just a reminder to slow the f*** down, but where's the fun in that?! Sometimes, just sometimes, I wanna curl up in a ball and cry 💔

According to Paul Ekman, Guilt is what you feel when you admit to the truth and are relieved of it. Shame, on the other hand, is the emotion that prevents you from sharing and speaking up.⁣
⁣
The best way to overcome shame is to understand that you’re not alone. No matter you strange and unique you think your situation is, you’re not the only one. There will always be someone who can relate on some level.⁣
⁣
The more we talk about mental health, the more we can break the stigma and defeat shame.⁣

today i’ve felt foggy and had very little attention span. i hoped to work on some of my college stuff today but i took care of myself instead. i made sure i’ve eaten well, drank ample water and got plenty of rest ♥️🥳 #fibromyalgia #dissociation #mentalhealth #chronicfatiguesyndrome #fibrowarrior #cfsme #chronicillness #chronicpain #pain #depression #mentalhealth #spoonie #motivation #spoontheory
Link to my blog ‘loving myself sick’ in my bio. Please check it out. I spent a lot of time trying to summarize things I would have liked to have know when I was first diagnosed xx #chronicfatigue #chronicillness #chronicpain #fibromyalgia #spoonie #hypersomnia
I've never really disclosed this side of me before! Coz I sure as heck don't want sympathy, 🙈💪 but I'm hoping my "confession " may help someone or even spur someone on. 
Previous to motherhood and farming life I was a professional snowboarder. I had a huge accident and broke my back.  So bad I had to learn to walk again and have umpteen physiotherapy appts. Since this horrific accident I've been left with severe spinal damage and extremely bad arthritis in my spine. My last MRI showed 2 vertebra are no longer there, 1 is crushed and compressed and spine has a kink (I'm absolutely most deffo sure this is why I'm only 5ft 😂). There's nothing they can do. 
I'm on a cocktail of many drugs (not the good type 😛). I wake up through the night once the meds have worn off, in the morning I'm in agony and have to dig real deep to get moving. Throughout the day I suffer enormously with chronic pain. 
BUT; I get through, I still farm (which is probably the worst Job ever for my condition 😯) - WHY - coz I bloody love it! 
I will not stop doing something I love, nor should you - or anybody!  I practice gratitude and mindfulness. There's no point looking back, living in misery of what ifs and can't! Snowboarding brought me the best years of my "other life", I travelled the world and met amazing people. The back injury made me stronger and keeps me focused on reaching my goals. 
I can manage my pain (in a way), but I can manage my mind in a better way!!! SO CAN YOU! 💚. Life is so short  to not  live positively.  Please show gratitude to what you have , show love and abundances will come. Manage your mind and things will change. I'm not being difined by a broken back - my broken back just makes me push harder ( and a few inches smaller 😜) #chronicpain #showgratitude #bestrong #brokenback #setgoals #mindfulness #positivity #positivevibes #keepbelieving

This morning I decarbed some CBD Charlottes Angel by @dutchpassion.official and started a couple batches of tincture with local moonshine. One for #fibromyalgia with Reishi mushroom, cats claw, lavender and echinacea. The other one is for #chronicpain that has white willow bark, oregano, feverfew and rosemary. We'll see if they do the trick!

Sharing an obvious classic. I’ve always found the fact difficult that people can’t see you’re anything less than healthy. I often struggled how to communicate that I can’t live up to their expectations in any given moment. And whenever I did, the response would be... But you don’t look sick! My new response to this is simple: Thank you. Do you get this question and what do you usually respond? #chronicillness #invisibleillness #butyoudontlooksick #spoonie #spoonielife #chronicpain #fatigue #brainfog #gastroparesis #dyspepsia #chronic #sick #mentalillness #illness

Day 18 of the Gratitude Project!
After a horrible night, I am grateful for my mother who sat by my side keeping me safe through another seizure. She keeps me safe and alive every single day and I am incredibly fortunate and lucky to have her. I am also grateful for lovely messages from friends giving me support through the countdown to surgery. The reminders that I can keep this up have been incredibly helpful. I am also grateful for warm wood stoves, cups of tea, and cozy blankets that are keeping me comfortable through today’s exhaustion. I finished my book and I’m very happy that I survived another day. #gratitudeproject #chronicillness #chronicpain #pwme #myalgicencephalomyelitis #chronicfatiguesyndrome #ehlersdanlossyndrome #zebrastrong #zebrawarrior #eds #dysautonomia #degenerativediscdisease #seizures #mastcellactivationdisorder #mcas #gjtube #tubie #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #potsie #potsiestrong #potsielife #potsiegirl #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniewarrior #spooniestrong #spoonieproblems #spooniesupport

Happy 90th Birthday Mickey 🎉🎁🎂
.
I may not be at the park celebrating today...but you've given me 38 years and counting full of memories ❤
.
Disneyland has always been my happy place since I was a little girl. Every birthday, I have celebrated there and still do at the age of 42 (yes, I'm a kid at heart). .
I'm just a Disney girl at heart and always will be. Thank goodness for being an AP and going whenever I want to get my Disney fix! I can't wait to make more memories with Mickey and the rest of the gang 😊

one time i had a guy about to go to med school tell me that POTS wasn’t debilitating “merely an inconvenience”
•
his friend also told me some bullshit about women being over diagnosed bc women are “dramatic” •
•
i wish i could say i had stood up and put them in their place, but i didn’t. since then i’ve gotten better about correcting people’s stupid misconceptions about illness •
•
these men are going to be doctors and they have such antiquated views stemming from their privilege. i want to talk to them next time i see them and tell them MY story, someone they know and care about, maybe then they’ll have some sort of understanding?

“Sleep is the best meditation” ~ @dalailama. One of my favorite quotes 🙏 Today I will be doing a lot of sleeping. In the past I would feel guilty or lazy about sleeping during the day. But there’s nothing wrong or lazy about sleeping during the day when your body needs it. Sleep is healing. I woke today with my eyes puffy, nose runny, head hurting, & my body aching. I can feel my bladder throbbing & feeling a lot of pelvic pain & pressure which means my interstitial cystitis, chronic painful bladder syndrome, is taking a hit as well. And my POTS (Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) is flaring which means I’m terribly dizzy, lightheaded, fatigued, feeling like I’ll faint whenever I stand, & my body temperature keeps going from extremely hot to where I’m sweating to extremely cold where I feel like I’ve jumped into ice water. That’s the thing when having a chronic conditions & autoimmune diseases, a simple cold or even allergies can cause significant flare ups. This is because when your body is already in a constant state of fighting for wellness 24/7 - every single day, every single moment - that when anything else comes in to disrupt the body the fighters don’t have enough reinforcements to kick out the new intruder. Knowing this & knowing my body I have decided to stay in bed & to sleep. I’m not going to exert anymore unnecessary energy on my body - and thankfully I have this option. Many people with chronic conditions & autoimmune diseases don’t have the option to take time to rest or they are shamed for taking the time. I used to feel weak whenever I would get sicker than others with the same virus or from allergies & colds - often because others would treat me as weak. Now I know my body is having to work a hell of a lot harder. I no longer feel ashamed by my body. I’m proud it’s working so hard for me. Each one of my cells is working it’s “ass” off for me. And the least I can do is listen, to rest, to sleep & save it some energy so it can continue to fight for me. #invisibleillnessawareness #sleepishealing ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Some days it can be difficult to find the strength just to get out of bed in the morning. It’s okay to give in and have a couch and #Netflix kind of day. 🛋 🖥  When you are facing challenges that come from having a #ChronicIllness the word lazy does not apply. Your body  has just switched into energy saving mode. 🔋

Summary of November thus far. #mrlovenstein #healthmanagement #chronicpain #selfnothelping 🤦🏻‍♀️ #smilethoughyourheartisaching 😬
💜This post is not about me. It’s about you..💜I did not know how strong you were until I became sick. You were my patient and I wore my white coat. You had a feeding tube and I consulted with you and calculated your nutrition needs. You smiled back even though the pain of not being able to eat on your own, the isolation of chronic illness, and the lack of understanding from others broke your heart.  I never thought I’d be on the other side but sometimes you have to go through it to understand it. I admire each one of you who wakes up each day in pain fighting battles no one knows about, or those who never got to sleep because your symptoms were screaming too loud to let you rest.  I’m sending love right now from my heart to yours because I understand now what it’s like to be the patient, the one in pain, the one who’s life revolves around hospitals and symptom management. YOU INSPIRE ME, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, YOU ARE BRAVE. ❤️ While my illness has limited me much, I have unlimited strength in prayer. Please send me a message if you would like me to pray for you. #love  #kindness #friendship #chronicillness #chronicpain #raredisease #crohnsdisease #chronicillnesswarrior #traumaticbraininjury #tubie #colitis #ehlersdanlossyndrome #immunodeficiency #hypermobility #disability #tubefed #gastroparesis #lupus #lymedisease #fibromyalgia #myalgicencephalomyelitis #chronicfatigue #cancer #multiplesclerosis #chronicmigraine #epilepsy #ptsd #centralpainsyndrome  #spoonie #spoonielife

Please send me a message if you would like me to pray for you. #love  #kindness  #friendship  #chronicillness  #chronicpain  #raredisease  #crohnsdisease  #chronicillnesswarrior  #traumaticbraininjury  #tubie  #colitis  #ehlersdanlossyndrome  #immunodeficiency  #hypermobility  #disability  #tubefed  #gastroparesis  #lupus  #lymedisease  #fibromyalgia  #myalgicencephalomyelitis  #chronicfatigue  #cancer  #multiplesclerosis  #chronicmigraine  #epilepsy  #ptsd  #centralpainsyndrome  #spoonie  #spoonielife 
Have you heard of the book heal your headache?

I like some of the ideas like weaning off of quick fix medications, avoiding trigger foods and understanding that migraines are simply a severe form of headache but everyone can become susceptible to both given the right circumstances.

In this article we cover the actual diet from heal your headache and take it a step further.

We go into depth on what trigger foods are, how to avoid them and how to not get stuck in the chaos of eliminating foods only to find yourself becoming susceptible to more of them.

Have you tried the heal your headache diet or read the book?

This man. Seriously, what a man.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He has been so incredible during my healing process. He has made me meals, spoon fed me, woken me up at all hours of the night to make sure that I take my medications on time, blow dried my hair, helped me sit up and lay down in bed, put my socks on for me and so much more! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I don’t know where I’d be without him and I’m so grateful he has loved me so intensely through this super difficult last year as we have fought these autoimmune diseases together. It is incredibly humbling to need to receive help on this level and has pushed all my buttons of “neediness” vs “self sufficiency”. I’m so grateful that he has helped me so much and I’ve learned on a new level how to ask for and receive help. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All to say, I love him to the moon and back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

💬FAQ of the day: "What is CBD, does it get you high?" -
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound. So no, it does not get you high. -
CBD Oil is made from hemp, which is related to marijuana but has waaaay less THC. It basically binds with the same receptors that THC works with, that's what makes it effective. It can help with inflammation, anxiety, and pain. It does not get you high.

An open letter to my body. 
For most of us, it seems like it’s us against our bodies. I don’t think so. I think it’s us and our bodies against the illness. 
The human body is an amazing thing! It’s invaluable. 
So maybe we should start treating it like it is.

Stop Chasing Pain. Hey that’s a good name 😉 Ida Rolf nailed it too ‘Where you think it is, it ain’t.’ Whammo 
__
Paint doesn’t tell you a whole hell of a lot. It only tells you there is a problem. It doesn’t tell you what it is or where it started. Pain is the last thing you feel not the first. Except for traumatic onset. That’s a given. Well, not really either. Sometimes if the trauma is so bad you don’t feel pain, YET. The body shuts it off because it’s not productive in a moment of survival. Get away. Survive. Then feel pain. 
___
Your body has run out of compensation protection before it sends pain. Pain is the slap to the head of taking notice and paying attention signal from your body. Non-traumatic chronic pain is the ass kicker to figure out. And many times it’s the acute traumatic pain that supposedly heals but comes back later via the emotional system that takes you down
___
But medicine will say ‘that’ injury is long gone. We don’t see anything in our tests. Your tissues never forget and that means your nervous system doesn’t either. That’s why you are not a tree. 😉

Big kicker. It’s not just a nervous system problem. That system is beholden to many others

Fredag gik turen i sommerhus med htx pigerne til den årlige komsammen, hvor vi bliver opdaterede på alt det, der sker i hinandens liv, snakker til kl. sent og så tager vi altid på julemarked om lørdagen.⠀
⠀
Lørdag omkring middag var jeg hjemme igen og resten af weekenden er gået med sofahygge, lørdag med grumme smerter. Men det er helt okay, jeg vidste det ville komme og jeg tog et valg med den viden.⠀
⠀
I dag havde og jeg havde en skøn søndagsgåtur med hele banden og alle nød det til fulde ❤️⠀

“My back is killing me!” Do you ever say this? .
.
Maybe instead of “back” it’s your neck or your knee. . 
I used to say this A LOT! 😏 .

It’s not actually killing you, but we are sure making it worse with our language! #truth .
When I have a setback now, I catch myself and this has made a difference in my pain. 🙌🏻
.
What do you think? Would love to hear your thoughts.... comment or send me a DM.💕

Hey you. ⠀
⠀
You are NOT too much.⠀
⠀
You who grieves loudly, or for longer than people believe you should, or in ways others find uncomfortable or inconvenient.⠀
⠀
You are NOT too much. ⠀
⠀
You who laughs at top volume and wear the clothes that feel the most like you, regardless of stares. You who takes up space and covers the world in glitter and lacks the apology most find acceptable.⠀
⠀
You are NOT too much. ⠀
⠀
You who dares to demand what you deserve. Who has learned to ask for what you want. Who wears desire like it was made for you. ⠀
⠀
You are NOT too much. ⠀
⠀
You who lives outside the margins and colors outside the lines and never quite manages to fit into the predictable or expected or polite.⠀
⠀
You are NOT too much. ⠀
⠀
You who holds boundaries and releases righteous anger and who fights for what you know to be good and right and true. ⠀
⠀
You are NOT too much. ⠀
⠀
You who doesn't hide the messy, who lifts the skeletons out of the closet and shines a spotlight, who owns the entirety of existence. ⠀
⠀
You are NOT too much. ⠀
⠀
You who live inside a small box someone else built and stuffed you in despite knowing you're made for more but are told to sit down, stop dreaming, be quiet, stay safe. ⠀
⠀
You are NOT too much. ⠀
⠀
You who live with illness or trauma or disability. Who the world would rather not see, or acknowledge or assist. ⠀
⠀
You are NOT too much. ⠀
⠀
You who refuse to dial back the dreams they call childish or unrealistic or ridiculous. Who still practices that acceptance speech and gives imaginary interviews and still sees your name in lights when you close your eyes. ⠀
⠀
You are NOT too much. ⠀
⠀
You who lives wild. Who thrives in inconventional spaces. Who says the things others are not willing to say. ⠀
⠀
You are NOT too much. ⠀
⠀
You who have come to learn what you want in life, in work, in love, in relationship and who refuse to settle for anything less. Who will walk away to save yourself. ⠀
⠀
You are NOT too much. ⠀
⠀
You are not too much. ⠀
You have never been too much. ⠀⠀
You are complex & nuanced & hold multitudes within. ⠀
You are heart & soul & spirit & fire & roots & wings. 
And you...

Ya'll! Gather 'round for some fabulous health updates! About a month ago, my nutritionist wanted me to have some blood work done to check for a few viruses and I wanted to see how my immunoglobulins are doing. Much to my surprise and delicious delight, ALL of my immunoglobulins are now in the normal range!!! Can you believe it?! If you have no idea what this means, just smile and join me for a happy dance! When treating infections and viruses, it's difficult to feel any tangible indication of improvement. The results of this test are a testament to the 11 months of infectious disease and fungal treatment I've been doing! On a foundational level, my immune system is coming back!!!!!! I am ecstatic to have this confirmation of the deep level healing and proud of my body for expelling infections and regenerating!

3 ways “CREATING SPACE” can positively change your life.🌌⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• The Body: Fascia covers almost everything underneath the skin down to the bone. When trauma(injury-surgery) occurs fascia pulls together and creates “bound points”. Ōpening these areas brings flow(space) back to the body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• The Mind: Pain and/or discomfort can take up space in the mind with anxiety, fatigue, and depression. Creating space in the body makes more room in the mind.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• The Life: Feeling pain and/or discomfort can be a full time. You have a life to live and should experience it at its fullest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We can help you achieve The Body Mind Life Balance. We all hit our thresholds at different points in our lives. We have to maintain so we can sustain. #selfcare ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are all connected. 
We are all fascia. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Creating space in the body makes more room in the mind. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • The Life: Feeling pain and/or discomfort can be a full time. You have a life to live and should experience it at its fullest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We can help you achieve The Body Mind Life Balance. We all hit our thresholds at different points in our lives. We have to maintain so we can sustain. #selfcare  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are all connected. We are all fascia. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #backpain  #weareallconnected  #health  #holistic  #top3  #slobodywork  #slo  #bodywork  #chronicpain  #weekend  #whoweare  #values  #body  #mindfulness  #life  #wearefascia  #fascia 
Hope I'll be feeling better until Tuesday, because I have an important appointment then. 😥

Fatty beef stew pressurised into melt in the mouth perfection 🤤🤤🤤 I cut the biggest bits of fat off and rendered them before adding the beef and a little bit of beef stock, pressure cook for 2 hours - which is a little overkill but holy shit it was worth it!! 🥩 🐄 🥩 -

This strong, smiley girl has been telling us she’s ready to sit up 💪🏻👏🏻 She’s almost there, and seeing how determined she is, she’ll be there soon!

Autumn out my window.
I'm laying in bed , listening to music, in super intense back / spine pain (and everything that goes with it), feeling kinda frustrated / anxious / disappointed/ down. I'm just laying here... staring out my bedroom window .... and then I'm mesmerized. The beauty of this season.. God's creation.... a simple glimpse of nature... sunlight shining through change; a reminder that life is full of seasons. I made it through the last season ... and I can make it through this one. You can too!! ✌🏼❤️🙏🏼🍁🎧

This pregnancy has me craving chocolate more than ever. Not great for my migraines. Which is why I was so pumped when I found @missyjsyummys delicious carob treats. Ordered a sampler box and they have definitely hit the spot, especially the ones with mint, so good! ---
I have seen that studies have not found chocolate to be a trigger for migraine. Some even suggest that chocolate can help block CGRP (which is associated with triggering migraine).
--- That being said, as we all know migraines and triggers can be incredibly individualized, and chocolate does seem to be a trigger for me. Sure avoiding chocolate feels like one of the many superstitious habits I've developed around my migraines, but hey 🤷 whatever "works"!
----
What about you? Do you avoid chocolate for your migraines? Have you tried carob to feed your chocolate cravings? .

When you're a #spoonie, an apple a day definitely doesn't keep the doctor away! 🍏🍎🍏🍎 Sorry for the slow posts my lovely #spooniesisters but I've had a bit of a bumpy ride with bad infected ecszema as a an infected toe so I've had two for the price of one infections which have really knocked me for seven!

To my 12/13/14 year old self:
I'm sorry. I'm sorry I let you down. I know you are hurting. I know you are suffering. Tears are streaming down my face as I type this,  because when I look back at you I see a vulnerable, damaged, broken young girl who I destroyed. I'm sorry I made you feel like that number on the scale mattered. I'm sorry you were suffering for so long in silence. I'm sorry you couldn't see your beauty. I'm sorry you starved yourself, I'm sorry you purged, I'm sorry you were hurting alone waiting for someone to notice. I'm sorry no one was there. I'm sorry I put you down, called you names, made you feel worthless. I'm sorry I let what happened to you make you feel that you weren't worthy of love and happiness. But if I can tell you or anyone else who is suffering one thing: hold on. Things will get better. I see your pain. I see your beauty. I see your strength. You are a warrior and you will beat this. I believe in you💖

It’s hard dealing with fibromyalgia sometimes 😔The pain changes you and your life.  It creeps in and takes over.  You become someone you don’t recognize. It effects your relationships and day to day. I hate it but I have learned to accept it!  You can sit and resent it or you can move on and learn how to cope.  It’s a roller coaster 🎢 of emotions.  So all I can do is try my best to focus on the positives in my life 💜➕

The things we put ourselves through just to feel a little better.

Well it wasn't the most pleasent experience. Kinda like getting water up your nose when swimming.

I get why they say make sure the temperature is right though. I can imagine too hot or too cold would make it worse.

It's made it easier for me to breathe and released the horrible pressure I have had for weeks. 
Going to do it several times a day at first and see if it eases the symptoms.

The one I purchased was good as it has a valve at the bottom of the bottle. This then gives a steady stream of water. I can imagine the ones where you squeeze the bottle would be awkward.
This one is good for a beginner like me.

I am an obsessive compulsive thinker. I am a perfectionist. .
.
I am excellent at making plans, thinking up every option, manifesting what life could be like. But I struggle to take this through to the real world. .
.
As I over think everything I become paralysed by a fear of getting it wrong and of making mistakes. So in turn I fall back on old patterns of living and gaining comfort. .
.
Which ironically means making all the “mistakes” I’m afraid of making. When in actual fact the only mistake I am making is being to scared to try.
To try new behaviours, find out the outcomes and be happy with myself along the way. .
.
I tend to overload myself with ideas of what to do. That if I don’t follow the exact diet, take all the right supplements, have the perfect regimen of exercise and mindfulness then I have failed. So I get scared and do none of it. .
.
I’d like to get over this fear of going wrong and realise that perfection is not possible and that’s ok. I think this will be a messy process but I guess it will at least mean progress?
