This little girl is giving me a whole lot of worry right now. She's not eating and not being very active, she stayed in this same position for almost 48 hours, she has since turned around this afternoon but stayed in the same spot. She also appears to have gular edema, which causes swelling around the throat (although it's not very visible in this picture) it was explained to me as a retention of fluids, there's a number of things that can cause it or it could just be complete mystery (from what I've read online). It's so stressful having a pet that I work so hard to maintain a diligent routine with water and supplements and heat and lighting only to have a mysterious ailment come along. I'm giving her tomorrow to snap out of it and if she's still not eating and still acting weird then Thursday we're going to the vet.
So let this be yet another PSA, if you can't afford exotic vet visits don't get an exotic pet, cause even with the best care things can go wrong 😢
I know you have seen these types of posts from me before, but I will never forget how I felt as the person on the left!
I always smiled on the outside, but felt hopeless about my future on the inside. I was exhausted, I had constant back pain from carrying around 60 extra pounds on my small 5 foot 1 1/2” frame. I would go into a store excited about buying new clothes and leave crying because nothing fit me.
I held together some of my pants with a belt because I couldn't button them! I wore spandex underneath skirts to prevent the constant chub-rub of my overweight legs! I still have not some chub rub going on but I have accepted my legs as strong 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼not skinny 😉
Why am I telling you this? I'm telling you this because I NEVER want to go back to that person. But I also tell you this because I want you to know that I still remember how I felt: scared, alone, and hopeless. I never want to feel that way again and if you are feeling that way now-please know there is hope!! ❤️❤️❤️
I know how bad this sucked for me, and I know how badly I wanted to get out of all of it! Know that I am always here for you and if you are ready to take that leap of faith and delve into the sometimes scary (but ultimately exciting and awesome) change for yourself; my next group starts up on 11/26!
I'm ready, are you? Message me or drop an emoji below and I’ll be in touch!! ❤️🎉💪🏼😘
So, I got another anole a week ago to hang out with Kona, because I thought he was lonely. The woman at the pet store told me I shouldn’t, that they would probably fight, and that Kona was not lonely. Online told me they would fight if I didn’t get the exact same size and an opposite sex lizard. I’m pretty sure the new lizard is male, he’s smaller than Kona and they’re already cuddle buddies and best friends. Take that internet! #ittakestwo#lizardmom#greenanole#lizardfriend#lizardlove
I have been drinking my super food, meal replacement, protein shakes for 1 year now😱 I can’t even begin to tell you how much it has helped me. They have helped me drop 5% body fat, build lean muscle, aid in my digestion ( sorry TMI🤣)and I’ve barely gotten the sniffles (yes I work at a school around dirty middle schoolers all day) Want to try them out with a 100% money back guarantee? What do you have to lose??? Other than a few pounds? 🤷🏼♀️ send me a message and I’ll tell you how you can save $20 and get a few extra freebies thrown in as well!
