Well yesterday was a huge success! Our darling girl officially had the best Birthday party ever surrounded by so many loved ones and was well and truly spoilt. So much fun, laughter and food. I was well and truly reminded though that the life of a spoonie is never simple. I felt so, so, so I’ll. my migraine was at its absolute peak to the point of not being able to see properly, my stomach was utter agony and my fibromyalgia made me feel as if I could shake from the pain... but my daughter wouldn’t have known. As that day was all about her ❤️ #butyoudontlooksick #chronicpain #chronicillness #spoonie #fibromyalgia #migraine #endometriosis #warrior #mum #mummy #motherhood #toddler #toddlerlife #blogger #birthdaygirl
Although some days, I’m able to go out and conquer 14ers, other days, which have been far more numerous lately, I either spend in the hospital or in bed unable to move. The harsh reality of chronic illness is that some days I’m far less symptomatic and other days I have more symptoms than I can count. And although some days I look like a perfectly healthy 20 year old, there are far more days that I look the societal definition of sick. I’ve been asked before, what am I battling? My newest addition to the list is a spinal tumor that’s causing me to lose feeling in my legs. My POTS has been flaring far more than usual, so I passed out on Friday and got an awful concussion from it and I have an anatomy exam on Monday. So we shall see how that goes. I’m ready to put this semester behind me, as it’s been the hardest semester yet. #goldensofcolorado #goldensofdenver #coloradodogs #subaruambassador #chronicillness #crohnsdisease #gastroparesis #spinalmuscularatrophy #chronicpain #invisibledisability #chroniclyme #servicedog #goldenretriever #coloradosrings #nursing #uccs #rheumatoidarthritis #ehlersdanlossyndrome #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome
I've been quiet and missing from around here these past few weeks. My health took a few steps back and because of these set backs I became stressed and depressed and fell back into old habits.
Enough is enough and I'm feeling ready to jump back into my exercise. I've missed going to the gym and pushing myself.
Bring on the next 15kg before Christmas! .

Road to Discovery, you will not recognised me. This time I will put the pieces back differently, creating a new 2.0 of myself. Rebuilding a Stronger, determined, Energised version. My outlook on life has grown & taught me a lot about myself through this Journey & the special people in my life that have stood by me. #chronicfatigue #chronicillness #strongwomen #goodvibes #fibromyalgia #onedayatatime #cfsme #cfs #chasingadream #lifestyleblogger #lifecoach #wellness #adrenalfatigue #ivegotthis
Monday 😑😑😑
My feet STILL hurt from wearing heels on Saturday night, and my voice is hoarse from singing my cards away at Karaoke! Would I get rid of my pain if I could? In a heartbeat. Am I going to give up my favourite things and stop living my life? HELL NO!
Gonna need a few of these 👆babies today, but I wouldn’t change a thing!

Only a couple hours left til we'll be tuning in live to @medicalmedium live webinar on ✨Secrets About Gut Health✨ ~ I'm really looking forward to this one, as gut issues have been with me since I was a little, little girl, where this all started. They have progressed over time, I've experienced the lot with gut issues.. to where it is now with chronic gastroparesis, nausea and overall irritability. The truths unveiled in @medicalmedium first and second books on gut health have been mind blowing and transformative, so I have no doubt that what Anthony and Spirit will uncover in this webinar and his 3rd book coming out November titiled "Thyroid Healing" will be just as incredible ♥️ Our guts can cause us a lot of pain, discomfort and distress... With the knowledge of how to really heal and to understand what is truly going on, we can change the experience of our time on this earth, however long it may take. I'm aware that a lifetime (since baby age~7 years old) of gut issues will most likely take longer to heal than someone who has developed some irritable bowel symptoms over a couple years, but I'm determined to see how I can heal, and live a life free of daily discomfort.. with faith, and love, we can do it 🍐👼🏼🍋🌿🥒🍎🙏🏻 Thankyou Anthony @medicalmedium for what you are doing for humankind during this time in the universe 💓
Our Sun is a second- or third-generation #star. All of the rocky and metallic material we stand on, the iron in our blood, the calcium in our teeth, the carbon in our genes were produced billions of years ago in the interior of a red giant star. We are made of star-stuff.- Carl Sagan

One of the best things I have found to help my #methotrexate days, and the nausea they bring, is diffusing peppermint oil. It really helps! It’s also good for headaches (which I also get from methotrexate) menstrual cramps, joint pain or inflammation, and - anxiety among other things.
Channeling my inner teenager for a little extra energy for my workout. I'll always love @britneyspears. ❤🤣😗👐
