To train or not to train. That is the question 🤔 Maybe some of you can shed some light on the situation. People with chronic illness or Lyme disease do you train? If so what training do you do? I’ve read I shouldn’t be doing any aerobic exercise. Not even low-impact – until I have recovered 😭
I don’t mind all the tablets but those drops are RANK!!!! Tastes like you’re drinking perfume 🤮 Three day’s in and I have people asking me already if I’m better! I feel like saying this isn’t a cold or flu I’m trying to shift it’s a disease that gets into every tissue and organ in your body! It’s going to take more than three days and a handful of pills to sort that out 🙄 Just shows how little people know about #lymedisease and that has to change!!! #spreadtheword#lymeawareness
Welcome to all my new followers, for all of you who don’t know My name is Stacey, I’m 33 and I live in London. A few years back I started having respiratory infections, fevers, nausea, joint pains, insomnia, chest pains, neurological symptoms, the list goes on
It wasn’t until recently that I got diagnosed with Lyme disease & chlamydiae pneumonia. Perhaps more but that’s as far as my money would stretch
I have a lot of debilitating symptoms that prevent me living the way my friends live. I’ve had to adapt my life to this disease. I’ve had to drop to part time work because I don’t have the energy to work 55 hours a week.
I stopped showering in the mornings (too exhausting) I would need to lye down for 30 minutes afterwards. So I have a bath at night
I often cancel plans because of how tired I am. Noise is a lot to deal with. It’s overwhelming to be in busy loud places and takes a lot of energy that I don’t have. I plan one in-person meeting a day. That’s about all I can manage at the moment. Wedding and party’s are extremely exhausting for me but I go and I try my best
Some times I think that I shouldn’t adapt my life to my disease because my disease doesn’t define me, that I should fight for a “normal” life. My disease doesn’t define me, but if I try to live a “normal” life, I feel frustrated because of everything I can’t do anymore. By adjusting my daily life, I’m not frustrated. I am grateful for everything I can still do
Two more days of work then I’m heading to Scotland for a week of rest and recovery 🙏🏽 #invisibleillness#lymedisease
You assume there is “nothing wrong with her” because she “looks fine to me” yet you do not know how much medication and effort it takes for her to try and seem normal. She doesn’t fake being ill, she fakes being okay. Ignorance isn’t bliss for her when she is battling to complete the most simplest of tasks that those judging her can take for granted #invisibleillness
My Instagram is changing & growing just like myself. My goal when I set it up was to focus on nutrition & fitness. Boy...how that changed
Due to bad health my fitness took quite a drastic nose dive. So my Instagram account was no longer what I wanted it to be.
Looking back, I think that was a blessing in disguise because it changed my focus towards something new. I realised that there was way more to me than fitness.
I’m loving incorporating fashion & beauty into Girl That Can. It’s going to be fun playing around with new affordable looks.
I’ll try & post more makeup photos and tag the brands & products that I have used. -
I will do this until I get my YouTube channel sorted out, then I can do makeup tutorials. At least that’s the dream. -
I have fired out a handful of emails to my FAVOURITE brands to hopefully work with them. Please would you cross your fingers & toes for me!!!
You just have to remember a comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there 💕
Good morning Insta fam 🙌🏼 Isn’t it crazy how your mood can dictate the rest of your day!? You wake up positive you have a great day and all that? It really is true.
I had a the best sleep I’ve had for a while, I woke a couple of time but for someone with crazy bad #insomnia I would say that’s was a good night. Had a cup of hot lemon, I made my porridge, meditated and now I’m set for my morning walk. Apart from my swollen infected eyes I’m definitely feeling the positive vibes today ✌🏽 Maybe it was something they put in my IV treatment 😆 How do you guys like to start your day!? ALSO- What are your weekend plans? I have the entire weekend off with no plans HALLELUJAH and I’m so excited to have some “me” time and get some Blog work done. I know, I know. Not very exciting but for me it is #adulting#weekend
