I went into Madison's Community Pharmacy and was blown away for many reasons! But an entire shelf of books dedicated to Lyme and coinfections made my heart flutter. I even found tick remover tools and natural repellents. These are not things you'll commonly find in your downtown pharmacy so I made sure to tell one of the associates how impressed we were. I love seeing Lyme education in your face! Ask your local bookstore and library to carry Lyme literature if their shelves are looking a little bare 😉!

It’s Friiiidayy!🌟
Yay! What’s your plan for the weekend? My youngest son came home from science camp today so I’ll be spending a lot of time with my family this weekend. And I’ll be meal prepping because I’m still on my sugar detox (it’s day 5/21). I love teaching this class but I also wanted to join my participants this month and start the year off on the right foot.
What are you doing this weekend? .

This Sunday, two women will represent me at the Women’s Marches in Washington and NYC with #marchingwithme, the initiative I launched last year with @SufferingTheSilence so that those in the chronic illness and disability communities who cannot be in physical attendance can have visual presence. I believe individuals are stronger when we work together. I’m happier and healthier when contributing to the greater good and fueled by the goodness of others. Whatever you’re doing this weekend, I hope you tap into some flow of giving and receiving. Thanks to Jenna and Bianca for carrying me with you — I’m honored to be your Supporter, and to March With You. Xo
Excited to see how HUGE this group grows this year!
The south is leading the nation in obesity and chronic illness stats!
@healthiswealthnation will open 100 Nutrition Clubs along the gulf coast by the end of 2020!!!
We’re about to change that! Spreading the wealth of health one community at a time! ♻️🏪💚

Today has been full of so much love 💕.. I CANT guys. .
I made a new start a couple weeks ago. Not a physical one , though it is leading to physical results, but one of the mind , soul, and heart.
I call it “my new start in manifestation “.
I set the path in my mind about a million and one things I wanted for my life’s journey , and with the intention to focus only on the good vibes that were going to get me to my million and one things.
One of those things I have been focusing on is building my local, in person , tribe of friends..... and guess what! Those intentions are coming to fruition. Look 👀 at this sweet af card! (y’all know I love handmade shit!!) It’s ME!! As a CaT Tattooer!! Gah!!! Ahhh!! #crazycatlady dreams coming true right now!
@breanakayink you are such a doll! And I love my card, and well you are just a swell human! A fellow woman tattoo artist 👩‍🎤 and just a stand up babe...😌❤️ thinks my tribe grew by one today !
Lesson for today Kittens ...
Happy dream dwelling Kittens xoxo xoxo 💋.

Today I had two confrontations that caused me anxiety. I'm struggling and am trying to not let my anxiety and frustration over those control my day.
I have so many things I needed to do today, but haven't gotten to and odds are I won't get to them today because I have plans in about 10 minutes.
I slept better last night but had to take something to help me sleep. I just wish I could sleep normally. Also, my IBS and acid reflux disease has been better today, I just hope it doesn't get worse by tonight. 🌱
Today, I don't feel that positive. I'm sad and frustrated and overwhelmed. I know I'll get to the end of this and I'll feel better soon. Today just wasn't the best day for me.

Let me tell you a little story: once upon a time there was a woman who always achieved high marks at school. Towards the end of her schooling, as the pressure and stress of a HSC loomed, her marks began to go down. She missed a few days of school here and there, and spent her time in class drawing in her margins rather than engaging in the work. Everyone had always expected that she would get an ATAR of 95 or above. HSC happens, marks are released, and teachers and students gather for a morning tea to ‘celebrate’ the release of marks. This girl attends, and gets asked about her marks many times. Teachers’ faces go from happy to disappointed in an instant. Other students gleefully tell each other that they “beat so and so”. But this girl keeps smiling. You see, she has been on medications for her mental health all year. She has felt numb, zombie-like, and isolated. She can’t concentrate in class because her medications have the nasty side effect of leaving her chronically fatigued. But today, she feels like a boss. She has struggled, yes, but she’s been getting the help she needs and has been supplementing her schoolwork with tutoring lessons that she does at home when she feels up to it. She’s been reading about people’s experiences online, and learned how to become a self-advocate. She now practices #selfcare and has started to love herself again. She’s met up with peers who have similar conditions, and has made some great friends. She’s figured out that school is more than an ATAR score, and she’s found her tribe.
A little story about how Cing changes people’s lives. This might be your story, this might be that of your friend or child. It might also be the beginning of some fabulous things for you. Come find you’re tribe - we’re waiting for you.

For the past 8 years I have thought of strength as pretending.
Pretending I wasn't sick, pretending I didn't need meds to keep me alive, pretending that I was always fine, pretending that I was tired just from work or other commitments.
That's not strength, that's fear!

This year I have already had 2 great discussions with people that said they looked to me or my page for inspiration, to help them get through or understand crohns more.
These are people I didn't even know or know very well but still reached out for help or advice.
This year I am going to embrace this invisible illness and help promote a lot of the unknowns about it.

I want to break the stigma, the misunderstandings and the idea that needing to rely on meds, drs and other people's compassion doesn't make you weak... it makes you human 💯🙏💯🙏

Until I went to see the incredible expert team at the Lupus clinic at Guys and At Thomas' I didn't even know it could affect your nails and nail bed. The Dr got out this big machine and looked at my cuticles for signs of inflammation and irregularities. All I saw were squiggly lines. You learn something new every day!
