My thumb after picking and digging through my anxiety. It's called dermatillomania and here's a summary if you want to know more;
Dermatillomania or skin picking is characterized by the repetitive picking of one’s own skin. Individuals who struggle with this disorder touch, rub, scratch, pick at, or dig into their skin in an attempt to improve perceived imperfections, often resulting in tissue damage, discoloration, or scarring. Skin picking disorder is one of a group of behaviors known as body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs), self-grooming behaviors in which individuals pull, pick, scrape, or bite their own hair, skin, or nails, resulting in damage to the body. 👀

❗️TRUTH ❗️I am not always strong. Amazing repost by @healthyguthealthylife2 about the reality of living with chronic illness. People tell me all the time how strong I am to cope with my UC, cancer, arthritis, depression etc. But I am not strong. Most days I struggle to wake up, struggle to get to work, barely get through the day. I struggle to stick to my strict diet and take all my medications on time, order them on time, make all my appointments, meet deadlines, cool dinner , keep my flat tidy, wash my clothes... I struggle not to be a depressed blob who lives on the sofa doing nothing taxing because it’s all too exhausting. Sometimes I do stuff, sometimes really cool stuff despite all of that; which takes a Herculean effort. But I am not always strong. Most days I am struggling. 😖🤨 #Repost @healthyguthealthylife2

⚠️TRUTH: Sometimes I’m not strong⚠️

Do any of my other #chronicillnesswarrior feel like sometimes there is this inescapable weight of being “strong”? I know when people tell me how strong I am for what I go through it’s supposed to make me feel supported, but sometimes it feels like a crushing weight. If I’m being honest, most days I’m not strong at all. Most days I struggle to wake up on time, get to work on time, meet all my deadlines, stick to my strict diet, cook dinner, do laundry, or clean the house. Most days I make my way to work (late) and then relocate to my couch shortly after 5 o’clock. And almost every day I struggle to not be a depressed, anxious blob. Sometimes that’s what chronic illness is. •

Sitter å tenker tilbake på de siste 5 årene... Hvor langt jeg egentlig har kommet 😊 Etter mange tilbakemeldinger på info filmen jeg laget sammen med @psoriasisogeksemforbundet og @revmatikerforbundet i fjor sommer, må jeg bare si tusen takk ❤ OG det betyr så utrolig mye at vi faktisk har nådd ut til så mange❤

Self-love extends beyond merely tolerating yourself; it is fiercely loving and embracing our body and mind in all of its complications 💛. Instead of focusing on things you don’t like about yourself and the mistakes you made in the past, concentrate on your strong attributes and the things you have done well! #endoachievement 🙌🏻

Day 3 of #edsawareness . Our veins also consists of connective tissue, so we are at higher risk of an aneurysm. Therefor it’s important to get checked regulary by a cardiologist. Day 2 of #EDS #awareness ! Since our stomach and intestines are made of -oh Yes- connective tissue, they also get affected. Worst case scenario we have to get feeding tubes. #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #hypermobility #raredisease #chronicdisease #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicwarrior #spoonie #spoonielife #connectivetissue #heartproblems #aneurysm #edsproblems #rarediseaseday #raiseawareness #knowledgeishope #educationisknowledge

Weekend was zo fijn! Dagje cursus, die ik gewoon heb volgehouden. Daarna een helm gekocht om zondag mee op de motor te kunnen. 😍🏍 Zondag ‘gesport’ (rekken en strekken), achterop de motor gezeten! ❤️ heerlijk gewandeld op de Posbank, bij mijn ouders op bezoek geweest en Pizza gegeten. Damn! Ik heb intens genoten... Vandaag een stuk minder energie en last van mijn hele lichaam. (het is niet te omschrijven wat ik voel...) ☹️ maar, wel een super fijn weekend gehad! Ik neem een dagje rust vandaag. 😃☺️ Heel misschien nog sporten......?! #chronischvermoeidheidssyndroom #chronischvermoeid #cvs #chronicillness #genoten #fantastischweekend #motor #enjoy #enjoylife #positivevibes #health
