Instagram Public Photos with #chronicillness

My 6 year old cousin and i had some quality art time today! she picked a reference photo and we sat down to draw. it’s always lovely to get creative with my little cousins. loved seeing her explore shading and get excited about using all my different erasers. also, i’m loving how my drawings are slowly but surely evolving into portraits of victorian dolls come to life. it feels right.

The power of cannabis 🙌 was actually able to medicate properly thanks tø #chemmyjones from @aloha.botanics which immediately inspired me make to this beauty!!! ●●●●the deets●●●●
@uptonsnaturals_us marinated #jackfruit with refried black beans, mango, bell pepper, onion, cucumber and romaine lettuce with homemade tortilla chips and homemade dairy free dressing. the dressing was a blender full of cultured soy, avocados, tomato, cilantro, mango juice, lime juice, cracked pepper, tapatio and garlic 🤪 so beyond happy tø have a @pccmarkets open locally with so many options i can actually eat 💯

Another day another doctor. i got an mri and a ct both with contrast, which explains the iv. my veins are very thin and rarely want to offer blood return with ivs so i almost passed out but i didn’t! so here’s to taking steps to a diagnosis #chronicwarrior #chronicillness #undiagnosed

The top photo was taken from my hospital bed. i remember thinking how pretty the outside world looked and longing to be out in it again. never did i think the bottom view would be my reality not even 3 months later! don't get me wrong, its not all pretty pictures and long morning walks post surgery and with an ileostomy. there are challenging days and moments. even on this walk i was fretting about my sudden high output with my low output bag and how it was going to tough out the 45min walk with no public toilets 😲 (we survived btw!) but i would take these views with all my fretting over hospital admissions and sickness anyday. stay strong today everyone, notice where you are heading, but enjoy where you are!

Take note. this works for many contexts; health/illness, healthcare, relationships, friendships... 🙌🏻 use your voice and be listened to, not just heard. you matter and you are worth it 💪🏻💎 .

on a slight side note, everyone at uni handed in their final assignment for second year today and are quite rightly preparing and getting excited for their third year!
i’m so proud of them but there’s still a slight sting that i feel, followed by an overwhelming disheartened feeling.
i was just weeks off completing first year when my health came crashing down and despite trying my hardest and living off the highest hopes, i couldn’t go back - i ended up paralysed in the middle of the road alone and having a lot of attacks when i tried to return.
what’s worse though, is my hopes of going back after a year off have been destroyed now due to deterioration. i always thought that at the very least i’d be ok to go back when they started 3rd year. that that’d be more than enough time to build myself back up.
well, suddenly here comes that time of progression into final year and i couldn’t be any further from fit enough if i tried.
it’s crazy knowing that by now i could be just one short year off my dream career.
but such is life.
health comes first and university will always be there.
i wish them all the best and i too will make it some day 👩🏼‍🎓 there is no set nor correct timeline in life so we must go at a pace which works best for ourselves!

with that being said, it is truly time to stop being so harsh on ourselves and for me to try and get to sleep... have a wonderful weekend everybody.
remember. your. worth. 🌠🌈 .

I missed #wcw, but shout out to all the amazing female endo excision surgeons kicking major b**t in a male dominated field (lookin at you, @karentangmd 😘) — especially this gem, @dririsorbuch. she’s hands down one of the most kind, compassionate, and genuine women i’ve ever met. and so knowledgeable about all-things endo. she treats her patients as a whole person— mind and body. our community is so lucky to have her fighting for us, and i’m even luckier that i get to call her a friend. if you’re in the la or nyc area, i highly recommend seeing dr. orbuch💛

Be patient.☺️🙏 #repost @davidrhamiltonphd

i believe that things happen in the right time and in the right order. i believe our own deeper, expanded selves, that some may call the soul, enjoys a grander perspective and so often guides our way, towards and away from certain sets of circumstances at particular times. what might be perceived as a failure, i believe, is very often more of a ‘not yet’ than a ‘no’. sometimes, we need to grow into the person we need to become before we can achieve the things we want to achieve … and that’s the whole point.
i had great dreams, when i left the pharmaceutical industry, to write books and speak, but it was almost 6 years before i self-published a book, and another 9 before i felt i’d truly grown into the person i imagined myself to be all those years earlier. during those years, i experienced being financially broke, worked in a bar, taught chemistry, drove a delivery van, directed a charity, organised events, and many other things. but throughout, i gradually grew into the person i needed to be, to be able to do the things i wanted to do.
i thought that sharing my experience here might be helpful to some who feel lost or frustrated, or who just need a little reminder.
so, don’t rush. focus on being the person you want to be. the rest will follow as a side effect. 😀#healdocumentary #healing #autoimmune #chronicpain #chronicillness #greggbraden #drdavidhamilton #daniellelaporte #deepakchopra #mindbody #michaelbeckwith #medicalmedium #meditation #remission

Those clouds ☁️ yesterday! 😍 i am *loving* this 80+ degree weather, but unfortunately it seems to not be loving me. ☹️ i’ve always been like a lizard 🦎 soaking up the sun 🌞 but my heat intolerance is increasing all the time. i need some suggestions for some inexpensive products or strategies for #heatintolerance that do not involve wearing long sleeves or staying indoors all the time. any ideas? lay ‘em on me! #fibroproblems #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieproblems #fibromyalgia #butyoudontlooksick #migraine #iih #menieresdisease #spooniewarrior #fibromyalgiawarrior #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicfatigue
