I’m having a Mast Cell flare and it’s my own fault. I got fed up with taking medication 4x a day and taking almost 50 medications/supplements a day. I got really depressed to be honest. I wondered; How could I live in the moment if every moment is on a medication schedule to keep me alive? Well, what I learned is that it’s nicer to be semi-normal on a medication schedule than in the moment having constant attacks. I’ll keep reading and keep trying new things. One day my treatment will be one pill once a day, even if I have to become a research scientist and figure it out myself. Until that time back to being a responsible adult. ✨

Weekend-rest-mode ON.
I realized lately that I’ve been pushing myself more than I should.. which is hard to accept because I feel like my regular day is maybe 50% of a “regular” person’s day. I’m pushing myself — in moderation, or so I intended — to trrryyy to close the gap by doing things that I don’t necessarily want to: exercising on days when I’m fatigued, pushing through pain to get housework done, working through brain fog, etc. .
I’ve gotten so used to not listening to myself that today after several failed attempts at getting out of the house, and a whole lot of judgement at why I was feeling so pooped, I conceded that my body and mind just needed to recharge. .
I’m telling myself that someone else’s 50% is still my 100% and I need to stop judging myself so harshly. I’m a slower-battery-iPhone person and I have to be okay with that because there are no battery exchanges available just yet. 😉🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ .

Women Are Not Roses.

Women have no 
beginning
only continual
flows.

Though rivers flow
women are not
rivers.

Women are not
roses
they are not oceans
or stars.

I would like to tell
her this but
I think she
already knows.

“This has been notes, with my throats” @calebdoerksen - After a long day of packing/moving/unpacking/cleaning (all while in the middle of a herx) it was awesome to just chill and joke around with my brother. He’s a pretty talented musician 😂 #movingday #noteswithmythroats #musiclessonsfromcaleb #somuchtalent#lymedisease #lymeawareness #lymie #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #spoonie #butyoudontlooksick

So, can you tell my step daughter is over this weekend? These are UGG earmuffs that have sparkles and she decided Draco would look fashionable. He surprised us by keeping them on for a good 10 mins. Considering neither cat will wear a collar , this was quite an accomplishment lol. Hope everyone had or is having a good night.😴 #catsofinstagram #UGGearmuffs #UGG # DracoTheKitty #myhoomandidthistome #stepdaughter #poorbaby #chronicpain #fibro #Fibromyalgia #newdiagnosis #somedaythispainwillbeusefultoyou

4 years of unknown chronic pain in my legs, arms, back, hips, neck, and head. The pain in my arms and legs never stop and it feels as though they are fire while the other pain comes and goes. My feet go numb and my knees feel crushed sometimes. My hands shake and my head hurts every morning when I wake up. Im almost always cold which makes it worse. I pray everyday God gives me the strength to finish that day with work and play and I pray every night that he allows me the rest I desire. I pray he gives me grace to be joyful and smile and laugh in life. I struggle with faith a lot. Not that he’s not real or he’s not God but that he cares. I’ve asked for my pain to end but for a reason I don’t know he has me still in this phase of life. I wrestle with the fact that it’s me. That I am 19 but feel like I’m 70 some days. That I don’t know what is wrong with me or what will take it away. I wonder why even some of the strongest drugs won’t help or after many tests the doctors still shake their heads confused. I want to feel the rain without feeling fire as well.However...a psalm of David (143) reminded me that even when my spirit is faint to mediate on all his works and to consider what his hands have done. #latenightthoughts #chronicpain
Pain is inevitable so when it comes, how can we use it as an opportunity? An opportunity to learn how to suffer less and to try to let good insisting that things be different than how they are. An opportunity to practice meeting ourselves and our experience with compassion rather than blaming or shaming or trying to think our way out of it. An opportunity to let our hearts be broken open and soften into deeper compassion for this wild, beautiful, devastating, lonely, incredible experience of being human. As Parker Palmer asks, “What can I do, day-by-day, to make my heart more supple?” Here’s the entire lovely poem from which that Mary Oliver quote is taken:

Lead
by Mary Oliver

Here is a story
to break your heart.
Are you willing?
This winter
the loons came to our harbor
and died, one by one,
of nothing we could see.
A friend told me
of one on the shore
that lifted its head and opened
the elegant beak and cried out
in the long, sweet savoring of its life
which, if you have heard it,
you know is a sacred thing.,
and for which, if you have not heard it,
you had better hurry to where
they still sing.
And, believe me, tell no one
just where that is.
The next morning
this loon, speckled
and iridescent and with a plan
to fly home
to some hidden lake,
was dead on the shore.
I tell you this
to break your heart,
by which I mean only
that it break open and never close again
to the rest of the world.

No filter on the snowy winter night ❄️ honestly, there’s nothing I love more than being next to a fire and watching snow fall from my window. What I love more is the calmness of a snowy night. So quiet and peaceful. Especially great when having a bad migraine/ headache day. Hope you all are having a great Saturday ☃️
