Okay. I’m almost out of spoons. I still need to do PT for the night, get ready for bed, wind my brain down and make a snack so that I can take the new med before bed. I’m not used to being out of spoons mainly from pain and lack of sleep. It’s weird. My spoons are a different size now and it feels like they’re changing sizes as the meds even out. I’m also pretty sure I’m just rolling down the list of side effects 1 by 1, like my body is shopping around to see if it wants to keep any. Here’s hoping the trazedone helps me sleep. #medication#stopthestigma#chronicpain#mentalhealth#spoonielife
more wisdom @Csunshare 😊
Every disease is first a special, local constipation of the circulation, tissues, pipe system and hence the manifestation of symptoms, or, of the different symptoms. If
painful and inflamed, it is from overpressure—heat or inflammation caused by
friction and congestion.
Second: Disease—every disease— is constitutional constipation. The entire human
pipe system, especially the microscopically small capillaries, is "chronically"
constipated through the wrong food of civilization.
White blood corpuscles are waste—and there is no man or woman in Western
civilization who has mucus-free blood and mucus-free blood vessels. It is like the
soot in a stovepipe which has never been cleaned; in fact, worse—because the
waste from protein and starchy foods is STICKY.
The characteristics of tissue construction, especially of the important internal
organs, such as the lungs, kidneys, all glands, etc., are very much similar to those
of a sponge. Imagine a sponge soaked in paste or glue!
Naturopathy must cleanse its science from medical superstitions—wrongly called "scientific diagnosis." Nature, alone, is the teacher of a standard science of truth.
She heals through one thing—FASTING—every disease that it is possible to heal.
This, alone, is proof that Nature recognizes but one disease and that in everybody
the largest factors are always waste, foreign matter, and mucus (besides uric acid
and other toxemias, and very often, pus—if tissues are decomposed). In order to realize how terribly clogged up the human body is, one must have seen
thousands of people who fast—as I have. The almost inconceivable fact is: How
can such quantities of waste be stored up in the body? Have you ever stopped to
realize that masses of phlegm you expel during a cold? And just as it is taking
place in your head—your bronchial tubes, lungs, stomach, kidneys, bladder, etc., have the same appearance. All are in the same condition. And the spongy organ known as the tongue accurately mirrors on its surface the appearance of every other part of your body.

If you were told to take an Aspirin for your heart health, you might want to have a heart to heart with your doc. New research shows that it may not have much impact for the low to moderate risk patients. http://bit.ly/2RHli5s
Meet Rachael Rogers. This #mama is currently #pregnant with her #miracle#rainbowbaby and feeling incredible. 💗💗 "Time for some #toughlove 😬🙃 The biggest mistake I see people make when trying our products is quitting too soon. Maybe you decided to give them a try but going into it you thought, "If I don't see some major changes in a month, I'm done!" Hold up! ✋🏼Did you get to the place you're in now in just 30 days? Would you go to the gym and workout for 30 days but quit after seeing minimal results and claim "it didn't work?!" 🤷🏼Of course not!
Here's the thing: #Supplements ARE NOT #medication . They work very differently. Medication changes your body's physiology (the way ALL of your systems function) by around 90%. This means you'll typically see/feel a difference quickly but guess what else this means? SIDE-EFFECTS! When your body's physiology is drastically changed, side-effects are almost always guaranteed. Ever listen to the end of a medication commercial? 🤔😐 Supplements, on the other hand, only change your body's physiology by around 20-30% so you may notice small changes that accumulate over time but it's also highly unlikely that you'll ever experience side-effects with any supplement that's taken as directed. 😯🙌🏼 I get it! We all want it yesterday. We all want immediate gratification. If you got in the shape you're in over the course of a year, give #Plexus 6 months to help. That is realistic. Actually, that is more than fair. Half the amount of time to let it help your body heal from the inside-out. Most people see results quicker than that but let's not put a time limit on natural healing, Okay?! Try giving it time and see what amazing changes (without the nasty side-effects) that your body is capable of!"
beautiful art by @abistevens_illustration // this is me today. the pain is so bad and I can’t wait until Monday when I can start my steroid taper. I was supposed to start today but my pharmacy had my Rx on back order so I can’t get it until Monday. The pain is pretty intense today but I’m just trying to breathe through it and distract myself with John Oliver clips and ice packs. I’m also slightly annoyed because this morning I got an email from my grandfather, who wants me to stop talking about things like my migraines and chronic illness/mental health on Facebook and “focus on the positive.” 🙄🙄🙄 yeah ok. Anyway hope you’re all doing well. Love and spoons to all 💜💜💜
I’d like to happily announce that I’ve been on medication for 1 month!!!! Best decision I ever made. I’ve been productive again and looking forward to the future. As a side note: somedays I do still struggle with my anxiety/depression but days are easier than before. Days are more enjoyable and that’s all I wanted.
Man them mf worked on my nerves so bad in China that I couldn’t wait to get to one of these! China Eastern airlines and everything about the Shanghai airport sucks ass! From customs to the damn internet...... they don’t even let you stand outside to smoke a fucking cigarette or venture outside the airport during a 12hr layover. Plus the people are like little robots with no emotions manners or hospitality.....Nothing seems authentic. I’m convinced the number one job qualification to be a customs officer anywhere in the world is being an asshole. #neveragain#fuckcustoms#jetlagged#medication Shout our to #ripperseeds for the #grapegum and #highhempwraps for the grape ape wrap 🍇 🦍
Look at this cute photo of my anti-depressants! #influencer Oh, I know what you’re thinking, “but V, you’re so funny and beautiful and your kids are cherubs from beyond! Also your skin is so clear and your hometown team is headed toward the World Series! What crippling depression?!” .
Post partum is real. PTSD from birth is real. Stress from thousands of dollars of emergency surgeries, yep- that’s real. This month has been insane... Casey’s death sent me on an actual panic attack culminating in very real necessity of two weeks worth of Xanax (my PCP took pity on me), the spider bite (brown widow) that rotted a chunk out of my leg (yep.) didn’t help things- but it DID make for a good story! Genevieve’s medical adventure and the discovery of my stomach ulcer added some much needed adventure to this week (not). .
It’s Friday and we made it and I wanted to shout out some friends- Julia who brought me homemade lasagna, Charlotte who sent pizza to my house the night I was stuck at Urgent Care w/Evie, Amanda who always had something funny to say and went on my ulcer diet with me in solidarity, Rachel whose got dinneerrr coming my way, Dray who pointed out my depression group “New Directions” sounds like “nude erections,” Suzanne/Jackie who lovingly supplied tix to Universal so we could have some fun, Christi who took the girls to Disney, Aimee and Sandra who begin each message to me with “hello friend” (and they mean it), Grant who immediately booked us tix to Boston for a Red Sox adventure, Juan who always makes time for movie trivia with me, Mark who always makes time to see me if only for an hour to talk about everything/nothing...and my IZEA fam for their genuine care and check-ins. Love you, mean it. #mentalhealth#depression#postpartum#medication#meds#xanaxfamily
