chronicallychelsea So I got good news and bad news today. Bad news: I can now add being anemic to my list of health issues. Good news: I got a letter in the mail saying I start classes on August 18th. Well registration that is. Class starts on the 24th #spoonie #tubie #pancreatitis #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicallyfabulous #invisibleillness #insomnia #nausea #pain #painsomnia #cfs #gastroparesis #gastritis #gerd #sickkidprobs #awareness #cure #hospital #holdonpainends #butyoudontlooksick #anemia #phlebotomy #nurse #college #spooniesincollege #sickdayblues 1h

raeraegoesreal Love these info-graphics from Deanna Minich about supporting the chakras with what and how we eat because they remind me how food can be nourishing on so many levels besides just the nutrients we physically need. Sourcing ingredients that align with our values, cooking with art and passion, feeding the people we love - that is nourishment to me, too. What about you? Thanks @deannaminich !! 2h

jennifer_rae_k Crockpot Sesame Chicken from @primallyinspired over lemon ginger cauliflower rice and stir-fry vegetables. I've been in a major #CFS funk, and this is the first time I've felt like cooking in a week. It hit the spot, and the family is happy.

sabriyah_star The more I think about it, the more I realize that all my problems have one common denominator: me.
I'm the problem.
Nothing went as I thought it would. When I was young, I used to try and imagine my life at 18. But never in any of my worst nightmares did I imagine anything like this. I've passed crippling depression, anger, manic episodes, and now I'm numb. I'm numb and all I want to do is scream. I want to scream and cry and I want someone to tell me I'm not as awful as I think.

  •   craftyhealing You are absolutely not as "awful" as you think. You are a very smart kind hearted person and you are far from a catastrophe! Sometimes...mental illness will trick you and make you think that you are less than you are but you are great and you will do great things!!! Don't worry sweetie!!! It's a bad day but tomorrow will be better. 3h
  •   fibromom11 It's unbelievably hard when life doesn't work out as we planned in our heads. Your mind wants to do this and that but your body says no. I don't know your situation good enough to comment but I'm all ears if you need someone to listen o4 chat with. You are your worst critic **hugs 3h
  •   emmaandherspoons You are absolutely not as awful as you think. You are, in fact, not awful at all. You'll get through this. Ily. 1h
  •   sabriyah_star @craftyhealing I guess I know that. I feel bad trying to talk you through stuff when I'm just as broken. But I guess that's how you survive it--by helping each other through. Thank you so much ♡ 28min
  •   sabriyah_star @fibromom11 it definitely is. And it's funny, my mom always says that...I'm my own worst enemy. And it's OK if you don't know my story; you were still kind enough to comment and check on me, which I appreciate more than you know ♡ 26min
  •   sabriyah_star @emmaandherspoons it's hard to believe that some days. Bipolar disorder is something I wouldn't even wish upon my worst enemy. I'll survive today...it's just waiting it out that's hard. Thanks so much ♡ xx 23min

queen_babs Every day is a new beginning. Yesterday is gone and today is a chance to start anew. I'm a bit overwhelmed by bad health at the moment, but I thank you all for your words of kindness and wishes. I am fighting on.
I do just break the days up into moment by moment chunks. I am very thankful for my iPad which allows me to keep busy with books, games, etc when I am laying down and cannot crochet. It's looking sunny in Sydney today and that is always cheerful.

Yesterday I was blessed to have a visit from my beautiful friend Karen @westykazz who listens and chats, made me a cuppa and talked Yarnbombing with me. This was a bright spot in my day. We have so many ideas! And we also brainstormed how we could invite everyone to contribute to our next big Yarnbombers United project. I shall talk about that more when the plots are hatched!
Thanks you again for your kind wishes and thoughts. You are appreciated. Sending you kindness and happiness and a hope that you have a good day. I'd love to hear what made you smile today.
This Sphinx necklace in this photo is a free pattern on the Yarnbombers United website.

  •   anfloclay Jane it makes me sad to think you can't crochet it knit right now. I don't think we realise how much we need something until we can't do it. I feel like I could comment on all your posts, but I fear you would think of me as some crazy stalker!! Just know, although I don't always comment - as I'm sure many others don't either, you are in my thoughts and I wish nothing but love, peace and continued positive thoughts. You are a beacon of hope to many of us lovely laydee 2h

yoga_jbm Got to give this a go!
----------------------
#yogaXpole
Where yoga meets pole, and pole meets yoga.
Join host @casa_colibri and sponsor @xpoleus Aug 5th-14th for a 10 day yoga + pole challenge centered around self expression and sharing the many sides of YOU!

Absolutely NO pole necessary for this challenge. Each day will offer a specific affirmation (Ex: Be Bold), and @casa_colibri will give examples both on and off the pole. You will then be asked to embody the affirmation in an asana of your choice.
Is this challenge right for you? The answer is YES if... *You're a yogi who has thought about trying pole but doesn't know where to start. *You're a yogi who hasn't thought about trying pole but now that you mention it, it sounds pretty fun so why not. *You're a yogi who has dabbled in pole and want to continue your journey on a pole of your very own. *You do pole all the time and think it would be fun to have one from the #1 pole manufacturer in the world. *Everyone else ever. Seriously. This is going to be fun!

In case you haven't figured it out, there will be one really amazing grand prize for this challenge - the X-Pert pole from @xpoleus . We're talking about the official pole of pole fitness, and it could be yours! X-Pert poles are removable and adjustable so you can set them up practically anywhere with ease!

To play, simply follow both the host and sponsor, and participate in all 10 days, making sure to tag @casa_colibri and @xpoleus , as well as use the hashtag #yogaXpole in all your posts!

We can't wait to see what you come up with! If you'd like to help us spread the word, please repost this pic and challenge info!

I tried to post this last week but my phone messed up and then I didn't have the energy to try again. List of things where I've needed this quote in the last couple weeks: starting back at uni, first Maths class in 5 years, starting Zumba, new placement school, taking year 9 drama, lighting process application (got approved for in less than 3 weeks!!!!), new 5.5am alarm to get to placement on time and today, teaching the vce drama and theatre studies while my mentor is away . •
I'm super exhausted and can't wait for the weekend so I can rest. But the modavigil I've been taking seems to be helping so I can actually survive these crazy days though I've had to take a lot of pain killers as well.
