Today’s dinner although I didn’t have ribs - not a big meat eater so these were for hubsy. Ribs made in the instant pot in 25mins (!) and they went down a treat 👌🏽#instantpot #ribs #bulgarwheat Turkish style with #salad #homemade #cooking #mumlife #quickdinner #mswarriors #autoimmunedisease #chronic #chronicillnesswarrior #invisibleillness #careerbreak #momlife #foodporn #food #dinner lamb ribs from @willowbrookfarmers #mamawithMS #msandababy
#EAT. After a day off of celery juice, I missed it. This is our good morning routine. I do the celery juice and kitty eats her Tiki velvet food. I remember a time when the sound of the juicer made kitty run upstairs but now she is totally unphased by it. She’s like Mommy is doing her weird loud thing and then drinks the celery juice I try and steal from her after I eat my breakfast. I was told from many doctors that I can’t have children. When I brought it up again to my doctors a couple years ago, I told them I wanted to have children and they told me I was too sick and will be too sick for the rest of my life and to reconsider not having children. Their words were literally, “would you rather have a child and your condition worsens and then you can’t be able to take care of yourself let alone your child?” One of the reasons I work my booty off on this #medicalmediumprotocol is for the hope that I may be able to have one child some day, even if that means adopting or fostering or having my own bc I just didn’t have the energy to take care of another human being. I ask the Universe to bless us in some way and we got the most incredible sweetest unconditionally loving cat and I am so grateful for her and for my sweet unconditionally loving husband/twin flame, who is so understanding about our chance of not being able to have children. And I continue to do the 28 day protocol blended with the 90 day thyroid rehab so that I may be able to be healthy and perhaps someday healthy enough to have a child and raise a child. And we shall see. I put it all in the Universe’s hands. I have let go and let God. Sending love light and healing to all you warriors 💛🌟👼💚👼💙👼❤️👼💖👼💟👼💖👼🧡👼💜👼💛👼🙏🌌🕊🌈🤗😘 #medicalmedium #celeryjuice #lupus #rheumatoidarthritis #braintumors #braindisease #medicalmediumprotocol #medicalmediumwarrior #90daythyroidrehab #medicalmediumlifestyle #medicalmediumcommunity #mmtribe #chronicillness #autoimmunedisease #spoonielife #spoonie #chronicillnesswarrior #warrior

It seems simple enough. Right?
🖤
We should pay attention to who takes our feelings into consideration and keep them. We don’t need people that don’t care about how we feel.
🖤
Even though feelings are fleeting, they are very, very real. And you deserve the thoughtfulness it takes to consider those feelings.
🖤
So let’s agree, right now, that we’ll pay attention to the people we’re surrounding ourselves with. We are, after all, the sum of those people.
🖤
Who are you grateful to surround yourself with? Me? There are so so many. @thomas.nash2010 @deanna.carol @ramosknives @lymecrusher @isaacramosart @ashton_ramos_ @ashleyblujan @belindakaygarza  @taelorloftis @coach_loftis24 @bksnbks and so many more

Throughout the years dealing with Hailey’s illness, we’ve had to change our definition of certain words, like doesn’t this X-ray look great! 😬😩

I'll be honest and admit that I had an issue with saying no. I used to believe that as a good person, I always have to be there for others even if it meant inconveniencing myself. I believed that as a "good professional therapist, I should be able to handle pressure." I learned the hard way that I am not made of infinite resilience. If I did nothing to fill my cup, I'd have nothing to pour out into others' cups. 
So I did myself a favour and started practicing saying no. I did it initially in small / low stakes situations and then as I felt bolder and stronger (because I was better rested) I began saying no daily! Whether to myself or to another person. 
I find have so much more energy than before for the more important things. I find I have better self esteem too. Standing up for myself had more benefits than I'd ever imagined!

Do you struggle with this? What do you think about this?

After I posted Abigail’s pictures from Camp Korey I received several dm’s and text messages from friends sharing how excited they were that Abigail was doing so well. Some even expressed how thankful they were that she was finally healed. I’ve struggled for days wondering how to respond to each message. As much as I would love to reply in agreement, the reality is she still struggles on a daily basis. The pictures I shared were from her last day at camp where she was genuinely joyful and thankful for the experience. What you didn’t see were the times she was in the medical building resting because she was too fatigued to participate in various activities. You didn’t see the morning that I had to rush to camp because she was vomiting and shaking uncontrollably. These are the moments in her day that we don’t typically share. We try to persevere through the rough moments, and cherish the good ones. Abigail deals with pain, nausea and fatigue on a weekly (oftentimes daily) basis, but she still finds a way to push through. She is truly one of the most resilient young women I have ever known, and why I call her my “warrior”. So, why am I sharing all of this? To give some insight into our world. Is she better than she was six months ago? In some ways, yes. In other ways, no. Are we thankful for every victory? Absolutely! We’ve learned to celebrate the little things, no matter how small they may seem. Abigail has an amazing team of doctors who are working tirelessly to find treatments that will give her a better quality of life. We are continuously doing research to try and understand her complex conditions more clearly (they bring new meaning to #itscomplicated). We face mountains that oftentimes seem impossible to climb, but the Lord is teaching us how much bigger He is. He is stretching us, shaping us, and changing our hearts. ‭@jennifernaraki, another “warrior” who’s fighting her own battle, shared a post the other day and her opening words perfectly described our journey...a journey filled with ”intermingled joy and grief”. Each day is completely and utterly unpredictable, but it is through this that He is teaching us what it means to walk out Philippians 4:8.

Help me figure this one out, endo fam. 😲 Some of you saw me in my story having a good time in the pool on Sunday but when I got out my stomach was swollen and I was having cramps. I’ve been flared up ever since. Why would a swimming pool trigger a flare up? Is it the chlorine? Maybe something else and nothing to do with the pool? 🤔🤷🏽‍♀️ Also, I love that I can share this photo with you because I’d never post it on my main page. 😂🤦🏽‍♀️

This verse keeps me going! I must work willingly with my limitations for the glory of the Lord. I won’t measure up to others successes or goals but it is not what God has chosen for me. What may be small accomplishments to others are large ones for me. God knows your limitations and knew what life would hold for you for before you were even a thought. 
Therefore, I must work at my own pace in my own ways because I am working for God and not for the approval of others. When I don’t amount to their expectations of me- it’s okay because they don’t hold any power over me. 
Work at your pace. Work slowly. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Just surviving is hard enough for all of us. •

😎🙏🏻 War heute geschlagene 3 Einhalt Stunden beim Frauenarzt. Ja, ein nachmittagfüllendes Programm, sodass ich meine anderen Sachen nicht mehr geschafft habe.
Aber was ich sagen muss, ich war dort zum ersten Mal und erst wollte ich die fibromyalgie nicht erwähnen, da ich wegen Unterleibsschmerzen wegen Zysten da war. Aber soll ich euch was sagen? Es war mega! Trotz der warterei. Sie hat sich viel Zeit für mich genommen, Tumor Marker genommen (da die Zysten ja auch zu Karzinomen werden können) mir viel erklärt, und mich gefragt wo ich wegen der Fibro in Behandlung bin und hab mich super ernst genommen gefühlt, und hab sogar ein pflanzliches Mittel aufgeschrieben bekommen (Mönchspfeffer) das gegen Menstruationsschmerzen, was oft bei fibro verstärkt wird helfen soll. 
Bin dann statt den Bus zu nehmen auf dem Rückweg auch 2 Kilometer heim gelaufen. Sehr erfolgreicher Tag, und gibt mir positive Gefühle für die schlechten die auch wieder kommen werden.

There are some new faces around here so I wanted to say hello! Welcome! In this corner of the interwebs, I like to keep things real. I love sharing about healing from digestive dysfunction, hormone imbalance, and other chronic health issues using real food, ditching a restrictive mindset around food, and getting lifestyle habits in check (especially stress management!). After dealing with these things myself, I now help women heal from their frustrating symptoms in the same way, by looking at each client from a whole-person perspective, and taking a foundational, root-cause approach to healing. In our first sessions together, my clients and I dig deep to determine what could be contributing to their life-interrupting symptoms, and make concrete changes to get them feeling like themselves again. Interested in working 1:1 with me? I’m currently taking a limited number of clients so I can provide targeted attention to each one. Schedule a free 15-minute discovery call with me so we can chat and see if working together is a good fit. Use the link in my bio to schedule, or feel free to DM me with any questions. ✌🏻

Your mental health is more important than anything. Make it a priority to care for self first. 💋
__
For the last couple of years, I’ve found myself taking on everyone else’s problems and pushing mine to the side thinking they were irrelevant. I refuse to do it anymore and you shouldn’t either. It’s okay to say no, it’s okay to isolate yourself from people who drain your energy, & it’s okay to put yourself first. You can be there for people but make sure you set boundaries. 💋

It’s been four years.
Four years ago today I was bitten and had no idea how my life would change.
Like a lot of people I had no idea about Lyme Disease, so when I went to the clinic and was told it was a spider bite I never thought twice.
It was nearly two years later on March 4, 2016 I was finally diagnosed. By this time I was in an insane amount of pain and dependent for care 80% of the day and night. My husband would turn me throughout the night, dress me, brush my teeth, help me on and off the toilet, carry me to and from the bed... the list goes on. 
My heart and nervous system have been affected and are still working to repair themselves.
I started IV antibiotics in June 2016 and things most certainly got worse before better. I had complications that left me unconscious and taken by ambulance to the emergency room. 
I continued with antibiotics for 1.5 years, having my IV line removed after 506 days and not on the direction of my LLMD. I just couldn’t do it anymore. That came with complications too - the line adhered to the major vein headed to my heart. The first attempt to remove my line was unsuccessful in our small town hospital. One wrong more with the line being adhered to the vein would mean likely bleeding out on the operating room table. 
I was sent to the next city for a vascular surgeon to remove my line, before heading to the OR she discussed the risk of tearing the vein and that she’d be doing a graft.
It was a stressful situation to say the least, but I was still excited to get the thing out of me and it came out successfully.
I continued oral antibiotics for two more months then in January 2018 I began treatment at a biological medicine clinic in Switzerland. Things became worse when I got home in February, and have finally started to get back on track...

Leaky gut, otherwise known as intestinal hyper-permeability, causes a myriad of inflammatory responses when #toxins, #pathogens, and molecules diffuse out of the intestine and into the bloodstream.
- 
#Symptoms of leaky gut include diarrhea, constipation, headaches, autoimmune conditions, fatigue, thyroid conditions, joint pain, and sinus conditions. 💊
If you're suffering from any of these symptoms let's schedule a consultation and start working towards improving your health today! Give me a call at (805) 367-6047 😀

So I made @jessicamurnane almond butter and blueberry cookies but forgot to take a photo before the family attacked them 😂 this is all that is left. Tried my best to take an Insta pic with the remains but it's a bit of a fail I know 🙈
They're so good though and it's nice to have a healthy treat to grab. Sugar is supposed to be one of the worst things to eat for endo and I have such a sweet tooth so it's been hard not having anything sweet other than fruit! These cookies are perfect 😍 and actually good for you! 🙌 definitely recommend @onepartplant if you have endo or want to eat plant based 😊

Woke up this morning and called the pharmacy. They’re out of some of my meds so I can’t get them refilled 😰 Luckily I have tonight’s dose. They’re calling my dr to see if I can get a different manufacturer’s brand. Wish me luck! I’m exhausted.

No alarm can beat this one! ⏰🛏🚽
Kindness is so beautiful.
Today I experienced it and it was so out of the ordinary that it almost made me cry with happiness!
I had to go food shopping on my own today as my husband wasn't around to help. I went to a local @tescofood 
I was actually feeling fairly good, low pain, almost no brain fog and not too fatigued so I thought I would manage.
My body had other plans, after about 5 minutes my back started spasming whilst pushing the trolley and I struggled so much. When I got to the check out, I explained I may be a bit slow packing my bags and the lovely lady helped me pack every single thing. Then her colleague put all the bags into the trolley and took them outside to the car park and unloaded them for me!
I was so overwhelmed by their kindness.
It should be the norm but sadly it isn't for me and many others with invisible illness. I look young, I wear my makeup as a mask and I don't always look sick. These women never questioned once, they just went above and beyond and it made such a difference to my day. Thankyou to those lovely ladies ❤❤

This time off work has given me the opportunity to really see what the pattern of my illness are. Every illness I've had has been around very stressful 
times and I truly believe that my body every time has tried to tell me something; slow down, calm down, don't push yourself. It tells me what foods I should eat and it certainly tells me what foods I shouldn't eat! When I'm tired and when I'm rested. In the past I've ignored all the signs and just kept pushing. But now my life has completely changed and I'm thankful for that. 
My job will have to change, my exercise and the way I eat (I LOVE sugar!!) 😫
I'm now using my experiences with chronic illness and my exercise and nutrition qualifications and formulating a plan to become a wellness coach. Hence the title of this page. I believe in order to cope and possibly heal from illness you need to love yourself in every aspect of your life. I'm trying and I hope one day I can help people to do the same. 💖

Happy transformation Tuesday friends! Here we have 2 pictures of me. On the left, it’s August 2017, I am 40lbs overweight, unemployed, and though I’m smiling, underneath it I am struggling with severe pain, depression, anxiety, and low self esteem. In this picture, I’m wondering if life will ever get better for me, I’m thinking I’m worthless.
*
*
On the right, it’s 11 months later; July 2018. I have lost all 40 lbs and gained muscle, work at a job I love, and my pain, depression, and anxiety are more manageable and no longer controlling my life. I’m smiling because I am genuinely happy and feel ~good~! In this picture, I’m so proud of myself, and excited to see which goals I accomplish next.
*

Here’s the thing. Chronic illnesses, physical and mental, are almost impossible to overcome. Key word: almost. Your illness may be the biggest war you will ever fight but you ~can~ fight it and you ~can~ beat it. You may lose a couple of battles, but you will. win. the. war. Never give up the fight to love yourself again. 💜

I decided to reintroduce myself to all my awesome new followers! both of these pics are my reality living with type 1 and it is an ever changing journey. |
•
My Name is Nicole. I am 28 years old and was Diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes at 15 months old. 3 days after receiving the MMR vaccine (dont worry pro-vaccinators this is not to spark debate, just part of my story) i was rushed to the ER w/a BG of 800 & a brand new life Journey. I was on injections and sensorless up until the age of 24 and am now on the Tandem Tslim (soon to be X2) & Dexcom G5. At about age 25 most complications began to develop. I have delayed gastric emptying, mild sensory neuropathy, laser treated Diabetic Peripheral retinopathy & am currently undergoing exams for vertigo/ possible seizure activity(although this has not been said to be diabetes related). Due to all of these changes i have struggled with anxiety & depression for a few years now & i am guilty to say, it has built quite a few roadblocks for me, as i have allowed it | 
The non-diabetes focused side of me is a big hearted, passionate, curious, creative, lover of all things strange & unusual, being w/an old soul. I have a passion for dance, photography, film, & special effects/fx makeup (amateur & self taught). (Ive created pages for those too) music & nature are my healing. If im not at some show, you can find me on the beach or wandering a trail somewhere near. Lover of the ocean & astronomy. Im a huge nerd (there is no age limit to awesomeness) & if i could advocate for something (besides diabetes) it would be bullying. I have zero tolerance for evil. Spread love not hate.
|
I was born and raised in Orlando, Fl with the Boricua Sangre🇵🇷 running through my veins. Yes, i was a theme park passholder always eating mickey shaped everything, riding haunted mansion 1,000 times or drinking a butter beer amongst the muggles & wizards (im a slytherin🐍). August of 2017 i decided to venture out to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to see if this path is the chosen one! I created this page to spread awareness, break stigmas, make friends and just be there for anyone in need! Please dont ever hesitate to message me 🙂

One of the best gifts I’ve ever been given is my sister. She played a massive part in helping to lift me from the darkest pit of all. Of course, there are so many “little” things {people + choices and life} that had key roles in the loooong process, but Jennifer Leigh is LITERALLY a miraculous answer to a very specific prayer.
•
I’m sorry guys {actually, I’m not sorry!} but the story about this is nothing short of a miracle. I’ll tell you sometime...
•
Jen is an answer to lots of peoples’ prayers. Thanks, Jen! Thank you, Lord! Her birthday is coming up and I’m so happy she was given to Mom + Dad 31 years ago.

Thirty one doesn’t seem little anymore ❤️.

📺WHAT 3 TV/MOVIE CHARACTERS ARE YOU?
⠀
A while back I saw someone post a meme that said “what 3 tv/movie characters are you?” I’ve given it much thought and here is my carefully curated trio:
👩🏻 Jane Villanueva (Jane the Virgin)
👩🏻 Mia Thermopolis (The Princess Diaries)
👩🏻 Monica Gellar (Friends)
⠀
So what 3 characters are YOU? (This will be fun!)

I believe it’s true that we often take what we’ve never been without for granted. 
If you’ve never struggled financially, you may not truly respect the value of a dollar. If you’ve never lost a loved one, you may be not really understand how precious time is with your family and friends. 
And if you’ve never been without your HEALTH - and I mean more than just a passing sickness - then you may not really buy-in to how important it is to take care of yourself.

I’ve started to look at my chronic illness as a blessing. Because I’ve struggled severely with my health, because I’ve been hospitalized repeatedly and in unbearable pain and weak from dramatic weight loss and scared I’d never feel well again ... because of this, I am determined to be as healthy and fit as is within my control.

Sure, I exercise and eat a clean diet so I look good in my skinny jeans, but it’s soooo much more than that!

I do it to build strength and muscle mass to support my body during neuropathy episodes.

I do it to maintain joint and skeletal health as I age.

I do it to keep the symptoms of my disease at bay for as long as possible, and to be strong enough to fight them faster when then do come on. 
I do it to keep my liver and my heart and my brain as healthy as I can for as long as I can, because I want to live not only a long life, but an active, full one.

If you’re fortunate enough to have never struggled with your health, I URGE you to take care of yourself anyway. Don’t wait until you’re fighting an uphill battle. Get as healthy as you can NOW ... not to be a certain weight or look a certain way, but to be as strong as you can be to endure all that comes your way.

I want to hear from you!! Tell me below why you do it (or why you want to start!) “I do it for ...”

Lots of people have been asking how I’ve been doing health wise. •
I have been feeling amazing for the most part. My nerve pain is the only thing that has been worrisome lately. Today I have an important nephrology appointment and will be able to give a decent update later this week 💕 thanks for checking in on me! •

I was just going to brag to you guys about not having thrown up for a full 24 hours but then shit happened 💩. Let’s get real. Throwing up is a bitch and I’m getting a new doctor. I’m starting to think negative 👎🏼 thoughts due to my fear of being treated by an inconsiderate jerk with the title of ‘Diana’s main physician 👩‍⚕️ 👨‍⚕️ ’.
We’ll see. I’ll admit, I have major trust issues. But then again all of my previous doctors have said I’m fine or that my case isn’t as severe. One doctor 👨‍⚕️ did call me lazy and even said he’d be able to do his job if he was in worse conditions than I was. 😲
My mom was like, ‘what the fuck did he just say?!’ Because he said that when I got out of surgery, too! 😂 ⭐️

You are responsible for your own happiness and your deserve to be happy. You deserve to live a life you are excited about; a secret to that is to always believe that something amazing is about to happen.

All glory be to God!! He is so faithful! 💗

What I am feeling right now, I’ve never felt before. I feel free!! Relieved!! I feel like I have been given a second chance at life. There is nothing that is off limits now. 
My amazing surgeon (actual angel) hugged me and congratulated me on never giving up, on being so strong and optimistic through out all of our attempts to help heal my back! He said; “ I didn’t want to have to do this to you because you’re still so young, but you absolutely needed it and your age made me want to fix it even more. You deserve to regain the quality of life that you’ve lost over all the years of pain you’ve endured”. He also said I was/am his favourite patient for being so strong and determined to succeed from the moment I was pushed into theatre, right up till now ♥️. That meant so much to me because I have been preparing for this my whole adult life, very recently I have focused on strengthening my spirit and my mind in order to over come this challenge. 
You have no idea how much you take for granted that I appreciate in its entirety. I no longer have to be afraid of when my back will go again, or if sitting with out a backrest will bring on a muscle spasm again. If the next procedure will work or not. Being free of all fear and full of hope and love for a happy, healthy future has been my prayer since 2008!!
Finally God’s closed the chapter to this horrible nightmare that only my mom and I truely know and appreciate for what it was.
It is FINISHED!!! 🙌🏼.
I am the happiest, most thankful woman in the world right now!! I will never forget this feeling, ever!✨🙏🏼 MAMI, LO LOGRAMOS!! 💪🏼

Here is part 2 of the Chronic Illness board! My board is in the 2nd pic. It’s a hard board to get a bingo, but I wanted to include a variety of chronic illnesses. Be sure to use the #chronicillnessbingo and tag me so I can see your bingos! DM me or comment other bingo ideas! Update will be posted later. Love always -Laur❤️

Spoonie Hack:
When you have hand pain and struggle with lifting things alter your options. We got a new coffee maker last month and i love it! The keurig options wouldnt work since i needed to make large batches for my dad and I. But i like that the coffee sits in a coffee reservoir and stays warm for hours and hours so i can dispense how much i needed to when i wanted WITHOUT having to lift a heavy coffee pot. Its so nice. Ive struggled for too long with this but this solved it. Figured i would share this change that has helped me. #coffeemaker #coffee #cuisinart #spoonie #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #crps #trigeminalneuralgia #migraine #spooniehack

If like most people you struggle to eat first thing in the morning, why not try juicing? That way you're filling your body with some much-needed nutrients first thing without having to physically eat! .

D A Y 2 : B A C K + B I C E P S 💪🏻 ✅

I am digging this lift, HIIT, repeat styled workout. It flies by, its challenging (but fun - so I don’t get bored), it’s only four days a week, and I can easily fit it into my busy schedule. 🙌🏻 Plus, the Trainer is super cute. @joelfreemanfitness 😜 So it’s easy to push yourself when a hot guy is telling you “don’t quit.” 👌🏻😂
.
It has been humbling doing these workouts. Just when I think I’m at my strongest....BOOM. 💥 A new challenge hits me and I get to test my limits all over again. 🏋🏼‍♀️ It blows my mind how much muscle 💪🏻 I’ve grown just from working out at home with minimal equipment.
.
I get shit from people all the time saying that at home workouts don’t work. That’s bullshit, and I have the results to prove it. 👊🏻 😏 So if you’re like me and you love proving people wrong, you’re totes invited to come workout in the morning with me, boo. [ yeah, REALLY ! ] 💁🏼‍♀️ I’m looking for 10 women and who are looking to lean out, burn fat, and have a super busy schedule. 🗓 Message me if you’re ready to make time and get killer results. ✌🏻💌

OPTIMAL THYROID

There is a huge difference between "normal" conventional thyroid and optimal levels! If you are battling a chronic illness you desperately need optimal levels.
