Welcome to my life ... 😞 never known such ongoing chronic pain despite my efforts to stay healthy and strong.
what i do know is that it could be way worse if i didn’t follow a strict nutritional and supplement plan. i’m thankful for the good moments, and love the days only a few things hurt 👌🌟👌

I mentioned yesterday that my doc wants me on 3 different meds. not big on taking meds that can cause even more issues. i like to try the natural approach. with everything that i have tried and nothing working, i needed to do some digging. leaf of faith on netflix found its way to me. i did some research, weighed the pros and cons, talked to my therapist (who actually knows and has seen the bad side of it)...
giving kratom a try.

blogged about it a bit. but will have more to go by next week.

how do you feel about #kratom .

It has been said that the gate of destiny turns on small hinges, and so do people's lives. the choices we make determine our destiny. i try to make choices every day that bring me closer to my goals. my main goal is and always will be putting strength, confidence, and mobility back into the toolkit for spoonies and anyone else coping with a health setback. 💪🏼

I did the #scrawlrchallenge from #scrawlrbox! the prompt was #washedashore 😁
the second picture is using just the supplies included in the box, with a white gel pen and i really struggled! it was bloody hard! the first picture is after i added some ink, water and used a better white gel pen for the highlights! i think i managed to salvage the piece, but it was difficult. i 100% will use the supplies again, but on smoother paper next time 😊
i will finish my other pieces, like my jigsaw one, i will also continue with inktober. i've just had a lot of health issues and other things lately, but i'm not quitting ☺ i also decided that as a house we should organise things better, so picture 3 is our new way of planning 😊

I had last weekend planned out to the last detail. on saturday morning i was going to drive down to julian to attend my cousin’s wedding. i had spent a few hours researching a sunrise adventure at anza-borrego for sunday morning. then, i was going to catch the hb airshow at my best friend brian’s place. but then i got sick on wednesday and sat at home watching a harry potter marathon sick as a dog. i’m supposed to go to palm desert tomorrow, but i may pass on that as well.
.
as lifesaving and amazing as having a kidney transplant was, it is still very hard to manage. i have to take powerful drugs that diminish my immune system to keep it from attacking the foreign kidney. this diminished immune system exposes me to infection way more than the average person which has pretty much turned me into what some would call a germaphobe. i wash my hands continually and keep hand sanitizer and wipes with me at all times. if i can avoid it, i don’t shake hands, and i don’t touch railings or doorknobs. i don’t share drinks or anything else. the countertops and bathrooms are so clean your jaw would drop. and that’s the start of it. but i still get sick a lot, and it sucks. sorry, no happy ending to this post.

Bubbles all day everyday! 😝

there was a time {a long time} when i thought we’d never get our rainbow b**e and enjoy these special moments. and then when i was pregnant with her it was hard not to be terrified that i would lose her. i still get terrified that i’ll lose her 😢

what got me through it was having faith that one day i would be a mom, holding my rainbow babe, and sharing these moments 🌈👶🏻❤️✨ and because i knew it would happen someday, and that i was doing everything i could be to get there... i could release the negative feelings and replace them with the love that i knew i would have, the love i would share, and the love i have for myself ❤️✨ during your waiting period for your rainbow babe, what helps/helped you to feel positive? 💭

Staying hydrated isn’t just about drinking water… electrolytes are certain nutrients (or chemicals) present in your body that have many important functions — from regulating your heartbeat to allowing your muscles to contract so you can move.
electrolytes are found within b****y fluids, including urine, blood and sweat. 
consuming electrolytes and staying hydrated has positive impacts on disease management and can help with migraines, chronic fatigue, aches, joint pain, and more.

There was nothing i liked better than a red bull & vodka, when i was out for an evening. that is until i started collapsing in bars after my first 2 drinks. this was before i was diagnosed with #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome
up to that point, a was mistaken for drunk, or taking drugs etc. it wasn't until i was diagnosed, did i add two and two together. i discussed this with my consultant and she agreed in no uncertain terms should anyone with p.o.t.s drink this. especially mixed with alcohol which also affects the condition.
she did give me the handy tip of ordering plenty of ice in my drinks. this would help keep my vessels constricted and stop the blood dropping to my feet.
so the moral of this story is, avoid taurine and caffeine drinks if you don't want to look like a lightweight lush on the floor of your local. 😁

I have a chemical imbalance in my brain. i don’t have the proper amount of neurotransmitters. i take medications that are vital to me being productive, well, and alive ! i take medications that alter my brain chemistry, medications that try to correct what’s wrong with all those pesky chemicals up there. my medications keeps my bipolar episodes to a minimum, has protected me against psychotic features, helps me sleep, relives my anxiety, all sorts of things !! my medications aren’t endangering my health, they aren’t needless, they aren’t “a last resort”, but a vital part of my treatment. i’m so grateful that i can take my medications and be as close to normal as i’ll ever get. 💊 •

When you’re chronically ill and housebound you gotta get creative sometimes. i havent taken selfies in a while cuz i had that crazy long sinus infection and then i went out of town for a few days and now i’m recovering from all that and adjusting to meds but yesterday the lighting was cool so i took some selfies. it’s been rough but i’m persevering and finding light despite everything. i am so tired but so strong. also my skin isnt perfect but i refuse to edit this pic at all because i want to be as authentic as possible also i dont give a c**p and idk how to edit 🤷‍♀️ #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicallyill #chronicfatigue #adjustingtomeds #endometriosis #autonomicneuropathy #gastroparesis #pain #beauty #light #love #lipstick #acne #nofilter #housebound #free #beyou #beyoutiful #chronicallycandid #blog #blogger #ill #ptsd #panicdisorder #anxiety

I can not begin to explain the feeling of knowing there is someone out in the world (someone i’ve actually never met) holding the first copy of my book!!!! holy shit- this just got a whole lot more real - i am so excited to share with the world the story of my diagnosis - mainly because it will then give those that know me now a much clearer picture of just how far i have come since being told i have an incurable disease. check out my cover art- know which bad a*s mser did that? thanks to jess @_meraki_vibes_ for making my vision for the cover happen! and a huge thank you to another jess and chris over at @inspire.graphics for your help! your ability to put up with a super anxious, often #msfogged #neverfiltereddisabledchick is much appreciated. this means that as soon as they finish reading it one last time it will be available on amazon.

Sawyer has been with me since i first got sick and he’s been really good at comforting me and sensing when i’m not feeling good. today, i woke up feeling a little sick, but felt good enough to go to work. sawyer kept nudging me and trying to get me to go to the bedroom. i thought he was being weird so i ignored it. when i came home for lunch, *ps this is pretty gross so i’m sorry* i threw up more than i normally do. sawyer has literally not left my side since (tried to even get in the shower... and he hates water).
i think sawyer was trying to get me to go back to bed this morning. glad i have a best friend who can care for me when my best best friend, ian, is at work.
