🍑IBD & CONTRACEPTION:
🔹
💏Sexual relationships are, for many of us, a very important part of our lives. Even when we are not in a relationship, our sexuality usually remains a key part of who we are and how we choose to live.
🔹
💑If you have Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis (the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease - IBD) you may find that your condition can affect you in a number of ways.  A common cause for concern, although people don’t always like to talk about it, is the potential impact of IBD on sex and sexual relationships.
🔹
👫However, people with IBD who identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender may be concerned about whether to talk to their IBD team about their sexual relationships. Whatever your sexual orientation, you may be concerned about how some treatments may affect your sexual practices.
🔹
💏If you are having sex, it is important to consider use of condoms to protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and pregnancy. Visit the NHS Choices website for further information on contraception: www.nhs.uk
🔹
👩Women with IBD taking oral contraceptives can be at increased risk of developing blood clots. Speak to your GP or IBD team if you have any concerns about contraception, and how that might be affected by your IBD, or drugs you might be taking for your IBD.

During my appointment today my wonderful doctor - who I honestly cannot praise enough - complemented me on my sense of humour. There are obviously days where life is all a bit much, but where I can, I do try and laugh at everything. 
Part of it is the whole "don't laugh and you'll cry", which is entirely true. The other part is a bit more blunt, which, for my sins, is also something I can't help being. The thing is, if you ate living one life, and one existence, you just have ti take what it gives you. My life is nowhere  near what I thought it would be, but you know that wonderful song? "I Got Life"? Well, I do, for now, and if I can walk through that life laughing as much as I can, spreading as many smiles as I can, then it may not be an achievement I can ever put on a CV, but it is one I'm happy with. .

Finally getting a chance to sit down, way past when I would have wanted to be in bed 😴

I was sick towards the end of last week, felt a lot better yesterday and today but I had prearranged plans, so my chores had really built up. Didn't get home til 8:30pm, then had to do laundry, put out bins, put away the massive pile of clothes in my room, and do 4 days worth of dishes 😕. I could have left it all, and gone to bed, but I do feel a lot better having got it all done.
I'm not really sleepy though, so I'm just going to have a bagel, cup of tea, and watch one episode of friends then go to bed 😊😴

Many of my patients who are dealing with autoimmunity, previously experimented going #glutenfree & #dairyfree before working with me, BUT with limited success
.
Maybe you’ve even experienced this yourself.
.
There are 3⃣ main reasons why👇
.
1⃣Food cross reactivity
Happens when the proteins in one food are similar to the proteins in another. As a result the immune system sees them as the same & will activate the very same immune response (inflammation, pain, brain fog, digestive distress) as with the initial food item you have already identified as problematic.
.
👉This is the case for wheat with all cow dairy, all gluten free grains, coffee, & chocolate to name a few
.
2⃣ Molecular mimicry of food antigens
This is autoimmunity, when the body mistakens itself for a foreign invader. The structural similarities of these food items to our own tissues can be problematic for some folks. It may be from direct binding of the food protein to our hormone receptor site as is the case in thyroid disease. Or the generation of an immune response that cross reacts with an organ, as is the case with the islet cells of the intestine & myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein in the central nervous system.
.
👉Once you stop eating the wheat or dairy it can takes upwards of 6 months to clear the immune system response created even an accidental teeny tiny exposure.
.
3⃣Impaired function of digestive organs
Symptoms of chronic heartburn, constipation or diarrhea can result in, or be the cause of, digestive organs not producing their digestive juices as they should. Heartburn may be low stomach acid secretion. Undigested food in the stool may be inadequate pancreatic digestive enzymes. Floating stool may be a sign of inadequate bile salts.

Last Friday, we took a mini-hike down a trail to a waterfall while I was mid-flare. I tried talking myself and my husband out of it, but I am so glad I didn’t succeed in doing so! I am still dealing with the pain of the hike days later (and I fell on my butt 🤦🏻‍♀️), but I would do it all over again. Days out of my bed are my favorite.

Monday morning blood draw. ✔️
•
A few months ago my labs showed low iron & pre-hypothyroidism.
•
Both of theses deficiencies (among others) are common in EDS patients. So, I was placed on an iron supplement & levothyroxine. Today’s draw will check those levels. 🤞🏼
•
Since starting both pills, my energy has improved & my hair is falling out less!
•
Often in chronic illness, patients report a lot of different symptoms. It’s important to write them all down & share with your provider.
•
This has helped my team treat me. It’s important to find a doctor who looks at all symptoms to help determine a diagnosis & treatments. The “big picture” is important.
•
And to everyone who has seen someone who doesn’t believe you can have multiple symptoms, please know I believe you!
•
Don’t doubt yourself. Listen to your body. And Don’t give up searching for a doctor who believes you. They are out there.
•
Sending healing energy & positive vibes always. 🙏🏼

MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS 🧠 
Hey guys my name is @levi_versano I am a sufferer of ptsd due to a very traumatic upbringing. I was diagnosed in 2002 with ADHD. I have suffered years of anxiety and depression and I also have Tourette’s, ocd, and a personality disorder. I lost my cousin to mental health, and the moment he hung himself was the moment I woke up ALOT. I have always contemplated suicide, but this snapped me out of it. I have battled drug addiction from the age of 14 to 23 and then I turned to alcohol. I’m now clean and haven’t took drugs for well over 2 years. The drugs I guess was to mask everything that was going on in that time, but now I’m receiving treatment for ptsd and my other mental health related illnesses. I’ve now created @wow_mental_health to socialise and help others as I never had anyone to help me growing up. Here I will be sharing various mental health related posts covering all aspects of mental health. It’s educational, inspirational, and motivational, and I hope you like reading as much as I love creating easy read format information and pictures. .

Hey guys my name is @levi_versano I am a sufferer of ptsd due to a very traumatic upbringing. I was diagnosed in 2002 with ADHD. I have suffered years of anxiety and depression and I also have Tourette’s, ocd, and a personality disorder. I lost my cousin to mental health, and the moment he hung himself was the moment I woke up ALOT. I have always contemplated suicide, but this snapped me out of it. I have battled drug addiction from the age of 14 to 23 and then I turned to alcohol. I’m now clean and haven’t took drugs for well over 2 years. The drugs I guess was to mask everything that was going on in that time, but now I’m receiving treatment for ptsd and my other mental health related illnesses. I’ve now created @wow_mental_health to socialise and help others as I never had anyone to help me growing up. Here I will be sharing various mental health related posts covering all aspects of mental health. It’s educational, inspirational, and motivational, and I hope you like reading as much as I love creating easy read format information and pictures. .

Never fully dressed without a smile 😊 
Feeling good today.
With my new meds on board I slept properly for the first time in over a month!
I am heading to the studio with my arsenal and some good food and hoping for a good day 🤞🏻
—————
Yesterday proved the morphine will be worth it. I know that opiate pain relief is never able to be a long term solution but I think it will give me a break from pain enough that I can function for the week, or however long we continue with this treatment, well enough that I needn’t ( to quote my dr yesterday) use so much courage and strength to survive the bare minimum. It feels like a blessing.
—————
I also had the $200 refund for the FDI crutches I ordered a week ago - the order was cancelled by U-Buy because of fraud detection on the purchase. So I have money again. I also have found some that are comparable for a 1/4 of the price on another  more reliable site so I’m still getting new crutches 💪🏻
—————
But yeah... yesterday was quite something. I got so much done and could focus and talk with mum with full attention and even join her with cooking dinner! And then a good sleep at the end of it all!

ok everyone we have a big announcement to make! 
we are officially going to start service dog training! 🎉🎉
.
.
for those who don’t know, I have ehlers danlos syndrome, a rare genetic disorder which affects nearly all parts of my body and has no cure. 
I’ve been toying with the idea of making Mugsy my service animal for a while. she’s a registered ESA and I’ve already taught her her a few service tasks. we just need to work on getting her public access ready. she’s pretty well behaved but so curious and easily distracted 🙄 It’s hard finding that balance between letting her experience new things and getting her to focus when it’s time to work. anyone else have this problem? (any tips regarding owner training, training with EDS, or training a rescue/small/adult SD are also welcome! 🙏🏼) It’s not gonna be easy but I have faith in her and I’m so excited to start this journey together 💕

No I’m not trying to be sexy I’m lying topless on the bed waiting for pain gel to dry so I can put my PJs on and try and sleep. I gave up trying to be sexy when I got sick. Those bags on top of the wardrobe are full of clothes I can no longer fit into thank to medication I have taken and not being able to exercise. Yet I am unable to afford to replace them so I have to wear the same couple of bits again and again. But it could be worse.  #spoonielife #millionsmissing #speccy #eyebrowsnotonfleek #mecfs #depression #disabled #invisibleillness #invisibledisability #toryskillpeople #austerity #pip #overtheedge

Tuesday #trainingtip of the week: Create Habits!
Whether it’s eating, exercising, sleeping or any other healthy practice, real change only happens when it becomes a healthy habit.
So pick your practice and don’t just do it once, keep doing it everyday or every week until it feels strange without it!

I'm so excited to shate these shots I took at the Badlands in Medora, ND. As you can see it was beautiful day and night there! My favorite part of our trip was watching the sunset errupt over the buttes in @theodorerooseveltnationalpark, and watching the stars slowly appear. We were lucky enough to run into Geostrrv who volunteer at various national parks throughout the states, and got to stick around for a very educational star viewing. If you look closely in this sunset, you can see the first stars we began to see that night. Many times, the first "star" seen will actually be a planet! What is something you wish you knew more about? On this trip I discovered I wish I k ew more about space.

Here’s your daily reminder that chronic illness isn’t all ups - the downs can come out of seemingly nowhere. I’ve barely left my apartment today, had a bunch of stuff on my to do list that absolutely didn’t get done, and feel like someone is drilling into my skull. Sometimes, shit sucks. Then why am I smiling? Because I know this will pass, I know it will come again, and I know I can handle the outcome regardless. Now back to my bed, aka my office ••• #choosehappiness #spooniestrong #chronicillnesswarrior

ATTENTION SPOONIES! 
I wanted to share an amazing discovery.  I frequently have head pain/migraines that require me to wrap my head in ice packs.  I can completely demolish an ace bandage in a matter of months (see 2nd picture) so I've been on the look out for something sturdier AND I also wanted something other than the boring beige color,  after all I wear them a lot and I love color.

Well it turns out the elastic bandages they make for horses are both more colorful and sturdy. They are meant for horses ankles so they aren't too long (the ones I ordered are 8.5 feet). The brand is Trace (seen in the third and fourth picture). I got one in blue and yellow.  They just arrived (they came extremely quick). So far they are very strong and more comfortable than I expected. The velcro is different than a regular ace bandage because the velcro does not stick to the wrap material itself. It is meant for a small horse ankle, so both components of the velcro are near each other, set apart by about 6inches of wrap.  However I got around that by simply looping it over one of the wraps to attach to the other velcro component, it actually make a stylish little tuck (not sure if that makes sense, hard to describe all that. In addition, I'm realizing I'm revealing how low my style bar is by attributing the word stylish to my head bandages) . 
The fifth picture has the catalog of the place I ordered from.  I was very excited about this discovery and thought I'd pass it along in case anyone else had been having the same problem. I'll have to update on how they survive.

It’s been a weird, good, restful couple weeks. Last week I went back to my hometown in small town East Texas and it really felt like a good part of my sabbatical and restful. 
However, as my stem cells work into healing mode and start to break down and rebuild nerves and my cortisol levels out, that comes with symptoms like headaches, heart palpitations, and anxiety. It’s a weird feeling! BUT - I don’t know if it’s because I’m living that sabbatical life and actually resting and sleeping or if it’s because I’m healing - but i am feeling myself bouncing back quicker from long days which is nice. But, since my palpitations are worse, by the end of the day my heart *demands* for me to lie down! It’s so funny how our bodies tell us what to do. My heart may have an average rate of 110 BPM, but at least I’m not as tired? Haahahahaha *laughs and cries at the same time* #lyme

The picture on the left is someone who suffers with chronic pain and fatigue. The picture on the right is also someone who suffers the same but with make up on. Invisible illnesses makes it so easy for people to judge you and think you’re perfectly fine because they can’t see the daily suffering you go through. Even though I find it hard to follow my own advice sometimes, don’t listen to anyone who just says stupid small minded comments like “you don’t look ill” or “you’re just lazy”. Only surround yourself with understanding and supportive people who would never judge you. Don’t ever feel you have to apologise to people or feel guilty because you’re not well enough to do something. And most of all, do not ever feel that you’re useless or not good enough. Your illness does not define you and you are doing your best which is all that matters ❤️ #chronicillness #invisibleillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #fibromyalgia #spoonie

Diary entry No. 462
I really, really, REALLY hate the words Borderline Personality Disorder.
Saying it out loud the word Borderline almost sounds like it’s not considered bad? Because “it’s not quite there” and don’t even get me started on the other name they gave it Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder...
Are you for real? These are the names you came up with when choosing titles for Mental Health disorders.
Good job Title guy 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Lots of love, BorderlinePersonalityGirl x

The etiology of these heterogenous conditions can be unknown or unheard of…. CONQUERING THE STIGMA!
There is lack of awareness for invisible disabilities so there can be an automatic adversity and prejudgment.

This will be a relaxed setting with good vibes, good music!

Have you named your stoma? ✨ Even before I gained my ileostomy, I knew that a lot of people named their stomas. It took me over a week to figure out his name, I just kept referring to it as a “he”. My mum kept pushing me to name him, telling me he’d have an identity crisis soon! 😹
My sister and I were sat in the hospital garden trying to come up with a name... one of us jokingly said He Man. And it just stuck 🙈
It actually fits well because my stoma is a hero, who has given me my life back. He has given me “the power,”!! I still mainly refer to He Man as just ‘he’, it’s easier that way and everyone around me knows what who I’m talking about anyway 💕 Don’t feel pressured to name yours, if it doesn’t suit a name or you’re uncomfortable then don’t feel you have to! On the other hand, I’ve seen some funny and odd names for peoples stomas on this app! What do you call yours? Let me know all your weird and wonderful names!

Though I am passionate about and fairly good at spreading awareness and being open about chronic illness here to a whole bunch of strangers, one of the things I struggle most with is being real and open about my health with the people that surround me in person everyday.
•••
Sometimes, it’s because they met me before I was sick(er) and I want to keep up “the act” of the person they knew me as before. Sometimes it’s selfishly because I want to ignore everything and enjoy the moment while pretending I’m perfectly healthy.

Most of the time, it’s just because I don’t have the energy to explain or educate or advocate or ask for help, even if I want to.
•••
So, I want to plant a little nugget of wisdom to anyone and everyone that has someone with chronic illness in their life, in any capacity...•The days and moments in which we seem fine are the ones we need most for you to remember we’re not.• Those are the times when, just because we aren’t talking about it or showing it, doesn’t mean we stopped feeling it. They’re the times when, despite being happy that we can feel and act healthier than we are, we still long for someone to notice the pain or struggle behind the smile. Become as good at catching onto our bad days as we are at hiding them, and you’ve already taken a weight off our shoulders.

This was a dreamy day. Especially with this GORGEOUS floral arrangement by @petalsbytheshore!!
.
.
I was dealing with a pretty bad POTS flare up and these incredible people made me feel comfortable (although I was physically struggling in a wheelchair). They were very kind with constant encouragement. .
I will forever remember this day💞

SWIPE FOR SPANISH 🇪🇸🇲🇽
Brain Fog is another fun thing that comes with chronic illness 😩It’s super frustrating when you can’t think clearly. I’ve gotten into a few sticky situations because of it lol 😅 I should say that Brain Fog can come about for other reasons, not just chronic illnesses. .
.
Also I have to apologise for my Spanish in this video. A made quite a few mistakes. I recorded this like 3 times so i was super tired haha . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Not feeling any better from the weekend. I feel lonely & isolated. It seems as though the only person that REALLY wants to see me is the person that hurt me. They’re the only one consistently trying to talk to me & see me. I feel like an afterthought to everyone else. It’s making me feel like I made a mistake in leaving him. It’s solidifying what he said about no one else wanting to be around me... except him. I’m sick to my stomach & anxious. 🌸

Don't forget to BREATHE

Studies are now showing that organs and cells die when it doesn't have enough oxygen. Colons die without oxygen and blood flow.  Remember to  breathe and move,  even through stressful situations
.... you'll feel more relaxed and maybe avoid surgery!

“You have been assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved” 
Some of you may not know, but I suffer from increased pressure in my head along with my chronic migraines. This picture was taken a couple of days ago after a normal workout for me right before I almost passed out in my car from the increased pressure. 
This picture just shows how invisible these diseases really are and that you wouldn’t have even known that I was in debilitating pain from the smile on my face. It just goes to show how strong and brave of a person I really am, I mean I don’t really have a choice. I will not let these illnesses define me or win 🤕💪🏼 I’m not posting this to play the pity card or for your sympathy. I’m doing it because there needs to be more awareness raised for these diseases and other invisible illnesses, so that way more research can be done to find new medications and treatments that will help people like me with such severe cases. Or that maybe a cure will be found in my lifetime, a girl can only dream 🙇🏼‍♀️💭 #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicmigraines #migraine #increasedintracranialpressure #idiopathicintracranialhypertension #iamnotmyillness #spoonie #spooniestrong #strong #brave #awareness #invisible #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #chronicpainwarrior #chronicpainawareness #warrior #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicillnessawareness #chronicmigraineawareness #iwillnotlose #iwillnotgiveup #gym #workout #weightloss #weightlossjourney #healthy

Detoxing... Just re-read the chapter in @medicalmedium first book about the 28 day cleanse. 🌞
I always learn something new. 😊
This time ...I was reminded of the old memories that can come up during a detox, which means the old toxins are being removed. 😮
I had some old memories on Sunday come up. Because Sunday used to be the Wonderful World of Disney on tv. 😁
We would watch every Sunday.  Sometimes a movie would be shown and it had to be in two parts. One week apart because there was only an hour for the show and the movie was too long. 💕
Can you imagine having to watch the second half of a movie a whole entire week?! Haha. 🤔
These past few days have been like going back in healing for 5 months ago. It really shows how much I have healed since then, which is so eye opening!!!
🌞
But there are layers to go. 🌞
I am not thrilled with the joint pain (really awful in hips and fingers for me) and vivid dreams and unrestful sleep, exhaustion, sensitive to all stimuli. ... So I am considering what I can do to reduce those while still being on the raw cleanse. 🌞
I didn't eat enough on days 3-4. That could have been because I wasn't feeling good....or wasn't feeling good because I was not eating enough.  Not sure which came first. 🍓
Today, I am trying more restorative foods. 🍓
Here's what it has been so far.. 1.celery juice when I first got up. 
2. Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie 
3. Mango Smoothie with Hemp seeds 
4. Cucumber and Date snack 
5. Lemon juice +water + barley Grass Juice Powder + honey + spirulina (it was not really cold water and it didn't taste great. I gulped it all down!)
6. Lemon Juice +water + honey + zinc liquid. <<< Ready to go. Have not drank it yet. ......
😍
Yesterday's lime +watermelon +ice cube slushie that is in photo was AMAZING!!!!! If I had more watermelon, I would make more !! ......
😍
I think all the hydrating and restorative foods today are giving me relief. More energy is happening ....yay! Time for some gentle yoga.💞 #mentalhealth

My favorite game to play. . . WHAT BAG!? 🤔
•
I’ve gotten a lot of questions lately about what types of undergarments I wear to conceal my bag - and this has got to be one of my favorites!
•
A couple weeks ago we went to one of the most fun weddings I had ever been to! Everyone was dancing, and it was a great time 😊 •
•
Left 👉 what I wore to the wedding
Right 👉 what I wore underneath
•
Even an ostomy can’t keep me from wearing a gorgeous, form fitting gown - underneath I wore high waisted compression undies by Shaper Queen, found on @Amazon. These aren’t my every day go to, but are perfect for those special occasions - date night, work presentations, and weddings!
•
These babies do a great job keeping it all in, but most importantly, they provide me with peace of mind so that I can dance the night away without any problems ☺️💜
•
I’m curious to know, what works for you?! 🌻✨

One of my favorite photos from my travels this summer, paired below with one of my favorite poems. It is hard to let go of what others think, of what disability looks like, of judgments made on choosing to travel and love life when supposed to be “sick”. Taken while exploring the beautiful waters & caves off the coast of Portugal, I love this picture because I think my happiness shines through, my smile speaks for itself. Titled ‘She let go’ by Rev. Safire Rose, this poem continues to inspire me. Hope you enjoy as much as I do 🙏🏼💕 - xo, Linds
........
.
She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.
.
She let go of the fear. She let go of the judgments. She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head.
.
She let go of the committee of indecision within her. She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.
.
She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go.  She didn’t search the scriptures. She just let go.
.
She let go of all of the memories that held her back. She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward. She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.
.
She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it. She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer. She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper. She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go.
.
She didn’t analyze whether she should let go. She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter. She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment. She didn’t call the prayer line. She didn’t utter one word. She just let go.
.
No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.
.
There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that.
.
In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forever more. 🌙

Diary entry 16
Today is just one of those days where all I want is to hug and cuddle my boyfriend or best friend and sleep till I feel better. But also at the same time I don’t want anyone to touch me or talk to me. I will probably end up just going to bed really early and hoping it helps.

☆New Blog - A Grounding Meditation☆
(Link in bio)
•
Can you relate to this vicious cycle of your own thoughts? Even if you don't have #chronicpain, most people experience this at some point in their life or another.
•
In this piece, I "walk" you through my walking meditation that instantly brings me #peace, #calm and #grounding. If you're unable to do a #walkingmeditation, I also provide tips on breathing and mantra meditation!
•
Don't worry if you "don't know how" to #meditate or never have before. These techniques can help the most basic beginner to the most experienced meditator. You have it all within you. •
Find your breath, sit in stillness or gently move your body. It's my hope that this will bring just a little bit more grounding, if only for a moment. 🙏

It's my hope that this will bring just a little bit more grounding, if only for a moment. 🙏 • • • • • • #meditation  #meditationblog  #breathingmeditation  #movingmeditation  #mantrameditation  #beachmeditation  #mantra  #stillness  #calmyourmind  #cbttherapy  #migrainemantras  #migraine  #migrainewarrior  #chronicmigraine  #chronicillness  #invisibleillness  #mentalillness  #mentalhealth  #healthandwellness  #blogger  #blog  #newblog  #yoga  #yogateacher 
Diary entry No. 461
I need to vent.
My other half has basically had a 2 job offers abroad.
Which would mean moving away from everyone I know, to a country where they won’t speak English & I know I’ll feel isolated.
It’s so difficult for me to say yes or no. I want my daughter to grow up around my family & friends.
Granted I don’t see them that much but when we do it’s great (most of the time)
& god forbid if there was an emergency & my daughter was taken to hospital I know there would be people only a phone call away that would come & be there for us.
I wouldn’t have anyone if we moved away. I suffer with social anxiety as it is, so having to start over & make “new friends” scares the shit out of me.
Anyway, I’m getting off subject, my in laws were on Skype tonight & of course the job thing came up in conversation. We spoke for a long time but all I remember from it was when my Father in law said:- “well when I got a job offer abroad my wife supported me”
He didn’t even say it in a nasty or manipulative way... but that’s what I keep thinking about.
That I’m a burden & a failure to my other half, that I’m holding him back & stopping him living his life.
& all because of my own ridiculous worries & concerns.
I also worry about how my MH would be in a new environment. I’d have nobody, only him.
I would have to lean on him even more than I already do.
I also want to add that my in laws have moved to different countries lots because of my FIL’s job. So it’s an easy answer for them.
I know everyone knows that the reason we haven’t said yes yet is because of me. This could be an amazing opportunity for him, for us...
So why can’t I feel excited?
Lots of love, BorderlinePersonalityGirl x

Monday’s always bring another opportunity to start over and to strive to take on each day as best as I can- recently things have changed at home so I have only the dogs for 13 hours and then my husband for a few in evenings because he works sooo long at the vets.  I am having a very difficult time with Dublin and training him (I have never had this much trouble training in the past and I have had 4 labs, two newfs and corgi) and I think I did a damn good job training them but Dublin and I are not geling in that area - so this week since I will be mostly alone I will try and focus most in that and not the bad stuff that is happening in the background in my life. 😵

Oh Mondays xD random edit I decided to do today.. I haven't been very inspired lately artistically...or in general. When I restarted this account I was overwhelmed with inspiration of art by other people but the only probably is is I jumped into it without the supplies or practice I needed xD. I mainly draw digital due to shaky hands and I just like it better but really want to get better at traditional

This is gonna get reaaaal deep guys... so get your scuba diving set ready 🌊
Have you struggled with feeling a loss of identity due to endometriosis? After watching the Netflix docuseries Affliction yesterday, it got me thinking about this after one chronically ill lady mentioned that she felt like she was grieving for herself. Although her situation was quite different, I could definitely relate to her words.
When I first started getting sick a year ago, I started off in the denial phase.
"It's fine... I'll feel like myself again in a week or two!"
When I didn't get better and started getting much worse, I went into full on panic mode.
"Ahhhh... is this my life forever now? I'm doomed!!!!"
Then came the grieving stage. I was no longer the girl who loved to go out for dinner with her friends. I was now the girl who either bailed or went out for dinner feeling anxious and dosed up on anti-sickness meds. The fun drinking me, the silly me, the travelling me... all of these things were slowly being replaced by a new type of me. The me that put my undiagnosed endometriosis and surgery before anything else. The me that got excited over checking the postbox for NHS letters instead of booking flights. I had completely lost myself... but who could blame me?
I was fortunate enough that I had supportive people around me and that I managed to hide it enough so that I didn't scare everyone off, but it was still a scary and isolating experience to go through.
Now that I'm in a much better place after surgery, I'm starting to learn who 'me' is again. However, it's definitely not the same me as last year... and I'm glad!
Some women struggle with feeling a loss of feminitity due to fertility struggles or feeling like their reproductive organs are 'faulty'. Some women have to drop their careers or lifelong ambitions - things that are often some of the biggest parts of our identity. Whatever the loss is, it’s never easy!

whipped up a Mexican bowl for lunch: corn tortilla, baby peppers, brown rice, black beans, harissa salsa, and some chopped romaine (I try to load up on darker greens but had to use up a bunch of things in my fridge!) .

Brain Fog is another fun thing that comes with chronic illness. It’s super frustrating when you can’t think clearly. I’ve gotten into a few sticky situations because of it lol. I should say that Brain Fog can come about for other reasons, not just chronic illnesses. .
.
Also I have to apologise for my Spanish in this video. A made quite a few mistakes. I recorded this like 3 times so i was super tired haha

Living with Pulmonary Hypertension isn’t easy! One day you can be visible and another day you can be invisible! The chronic pain, the migraines, the fatigue and severe breathlessness makes everyday life difficult. Despite having PH I am all of the words around me! I may have PH, but I won’t let it define me! I am foremost a wife, a daughter and a fur Mummy! I am a PHighter and always will be until I have my double lung transplant or a CURE is found! PH lives with us, not the other way round!! 💜💪♿️ @i_weigh #iweigh #fuckingkg #pulmonaryhypertension #NoCureAlwaysHope #chronicillness #invisibleillness

Need your daily dose of cuteness? No prob llama! 😅

Meet my new friend who I encountered yesterday at The Big Apple @bigapple401. When my grandparents were alive, they lived in Toronto and we would stop here every time we visited, so we could get a treat.🍎

No deeper meaning to this post - just wanted to make you smile! Because this llama made me smile. Life can be tough - I'm grateful for bursts of loveliness whenever they happen. Have a good evening! 💕

Woah! How did this happen? I bought a scale and started weighing myself everyday last week. I was shocked when the number was 8 pounds less in just one week. Although weight loss is not the goal of my keto journey, it’s definitely an added benefit! I have gained a decent amount of weight in the past 3 years that my migraines have turned chronic... its been hard because I was always an athlete and would go to the gym or run almost every day. Because my head was in almost constant pain, working out was no longer fitting into my life. Thanks to eating strict keto, I’m already feeling like I have more energy than I’ve had in a long time so cheers to that! 🙌🏽

I haven’t really had the best of weeks if I’m honest. I’ve been really poorly which has resulted in higher anxiety and panic. I’ve had to cancel my appointment with my social worker tomorrow and rescheduled for when she’s back from holiday, in two weeks time. I’m absolutely devastated that I’ve had to cancel. I was really looking forward to it. But there’s no way I could have gotten up tomorrow morning and prepared for a “big day” of going outdoors. I’m really unwell. I’ve tried to make myself feel better by getting dressed and putting a little make up on... but I still feel so crappy. I’m quite shaky and on edge tonight. I hate it. But tomorrow is a new day. And I look forward to it. ♥️
