Reposted from @charlotteamylouise -  LOOK, MY THIGHS TOUCH. Is this something to be disgusted at? Or is this just 100% normal and healthy? •
•
What about the second picture? Is that better? Seeing them far apart? Even though I’m also standing with my feet far apart from each other? I think having my thighs touch was the most difficult challenge I faced when I put on more weight after surgery - it was always my trigger. I used to aspire to have a thigh gap. But NO MORE. These thighs used to be so strong that I could sprint fast as much as I liked and I could play the sport I loved. I lost all the muscle and I still haven’t quite gotten it all back. That doesn’t mean that they’re not strong anymore though. •
•
They help me walk, run, dance, jump, skip and I finally have the energy to do all those things and more! I used to hate how they jiggled when I moved but I absolutely love it now. It just makes feel more human and alive. We’re not supposed to look like those mannequins in the shops. We’re not supposed to look like Barbie. They’re not even real human beings so how can we look like them and compare ourselves to them?! (Same goes for photoshopped women.) We’re all people and people all come in different shapes and sizes, which is what makes us all so unique. ❤️ •
•
As well as this, your worth is never defined by how you look anyway. There’s so much more to being human than that - which is why I’m so glad I’m not a damn mannequin! 😂 (I know some people have thigh gaps naturally due to the bone structure of the hips - all I am saying is that you shouldn’t punish yourself in order to obtain something that isn’t natural to YOU 💕) •

to the able bodied people who use the one and only handicap accessible stall-⁣⁣
⁣⁣
this is NOT a luxury item. ⁣
⁣⁣
this stall was NOT put there so you could check social media, text your friends, play music, or poop in peace while the shower noise drowns out your business. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
you may not realize it but so many people count on this stall for their safety.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
and i get it. it’s spacious, has a toilet within and has an adjustable shower head- but these are things that a person with a disability (invisible/ visible) needs for easier and safe access. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
as a disabled person, i don’t use this stall because i just “like it”. i use it for the extra space for my wheelchair and service dog. i use the grab handles to hoist myself up and remain balanced. i use the bench within the shower to keep myself from passing out. i use the shower head to be able to clean myself the way anyone else would. for me this stall is not an option. it’s is a necessity. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
please keep this in mind the next time you go for the accessible stall when others are open, because you never know who you’re taking it away from. and also never judge someone for walking out of a handicap stall, yes maybe they shouldn’t have used it, but there could also be a very legitimate reason for them to need it. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
if you don’t need it, don’t use it!! ♿️⁣⁣

Earlier today didn’t start out to great as I fell onto the sidewalk at church 😢 Dizziness and vision issues don’t make a great combo 😂 but thankfully I just ended up with some scrapes and bruises.  Please pray that we get an email back from my neurosurgeon so we can come up with a plan!  Well, I’m much more happier now that my room is no longer bright orange! I love that my room is now my two favorite colors! 🦓💙💜💙🦓#EDS #POTS #CCI #Chiari #cranialsettling #craniocervicalfusion #spinalfusionsurvivor #roadtorecovery #7monthspostop #scarsarebeautiful #warrior  #fragilebutunbreakable #choosejoy

This is what can happen when you have a lung condition and catch a head cold. Even someting as simple as a cold can cause your oxygen to drop. It's been bouncing betweeen 78 and 92 all day today. For those who can't read a pulse of its at 83% here 92 is my heart rate. My head starts killing me and I get dizzy when this happens. Hopefully in February my doctor can give me more insight about what this disease means. So far all I've been told is it's called Blunting of the costophrenic angles secondary to pleural thickening and it causes scar tissue to form on my lungs but other then that I have no idea what's going on. My guess would be EDS caused this too though.

My attempt at a half smile. 😆
We had a great time last night.  I decided to have an alcoholic drink and pay the price... inflammation everywhere. Not again.😣😂 I was laying in bed, while he went to grab #dutchbrothers coffee, letting myself relax and enjoy the quiet. 😬The coffee was not a great follow up I know, but helps with #gastroparesis for some reason. Not in a good way. Don't copy me.🤣 I need to get back on a plant based diet.

Not in a good way. Don't copy me.🤣 I need to get back on a plant based diet. Eta: Pardon the hair. It's from my daughters SDiT, aka #TheHairyBeast .♡ That TooFaced mascara is really on there... #morningafter #datenight #hurtingbuthappy #worthit #pajamaday #inflammation #shouldvehadjuice #nofilter #autoimmunehangover #eds #mmj #cbd - 3 hours ago

"And she always had a way with her brokenness. She would take her pieces and make them beautiful.” - R.M. Drake

Sometimes I just need to get my emotions out, even when I'm not well enough to leave the house. Big thanks to @advinspiration for going with the flow and creating some beautiful images in the comfort of my own home.

Working distance. I want to talk about hunting for a second. 
___
One of my biggest training goals has always been to train and own a hunting dog. I’ve always been so silently involved, watching from the side lines and admiring dogs that did this sport. I was so nervous with my health about doing it, since it is a sport that can be very taxing physical wise. I ended up literally sucking up all the pain, which kicks my butt most days after a long day of training. I usually spend these moments in bed, wanting to give up. 
____
But then I look back on videos like this. I see progress. I see accomplishment. I get a fire in me to go back onto that field and keep pushing myself. Because I am doing something I never thought I would do. I own a very versatile, working dog. I can’t let him or myself down. The pain is worth it. I’ve met so many good friends that are like family now. I’ve learned so much about training hunting dogs and I’m engulfed in the sport now. I do this for me. And for Godric. And I am so beyond happy I am doing this.

Actually though, despite having crappy eyes and retinas and such I really do like my eyes. My eyes have an extra line or two of lashes, though not super noticeable when I’ve got these #eyelashextensions...
#shamelessselfie and shameless self love and I encourage you all to say these things out loud and normalize self acceptance and aesthetic freedom. Even with eyelash extensions, it’s like buzzing my hair or getting tattoos; self expression that feels extra af plus it takes some of the prep time out of getting ready for shoots. #420 #blazeit #mmj #weed #medicalcannabis #model #chronicpain #fibromyalgia #eds #connectivetissuedisorder #joint #glasses #pink #selfie #tattoo #piercing #blueeyes #distichiasis #odd #weirdo #proud

Include disabled people in your activism. Too many marches are far too difficult for your disabled comrades. You can claim that your march is accessible, but does your route have hills or barriers? No one should need to be pushed if they’re usually independently mobile. Make sure people with mobility impairments access the march route. There needs to be a designated accessible seating area so that folks who need to sit aren’t trapped behind standing people. DO YOU HAVE DISABLED SPEAKERS? Let us be heard. Give us access to the stage. To not have ramps to your stage, you are directly implying that disabled voices aren’t important enough to make the effort. ♿️ #disabledandproud

I woke up from a nap with my arm slipping away from me. The (terrible) pain woke me up. It's still very painful but it's held together now.

Happy Full Moon Eclipse in CREATIVE Leo - the sign of creativity, heart, and passion. In some aspect of our lives we are feeling the drive to CREATE. NEW projects, NEW hobbies, maybe ones we thought about  but haven't acted on. Take note of what was going on in your life last February 2018. Move forward into a new endeavor that makes your heart feel alive. Take the a leap of faith. DON'T BR AFRAID to fail, don't be afraid to be embarrassed or judged. Creating is one of the truest expressions of living. We all have something beautiful to create within us. Take that new job, start that new hobby, fall in love, whatever just do it with passion. I myself have some BIG PLANS for some upcoming creative projects involving spreading awareness for #ehlersdanlossyndrome & #invisibleillness populations. Stay tuned, I hope you'll support me in my journey. May this Eclipse bring you something that makes your heart sizzle. #astroworld #eclipse

[Deleted my post from a few days ago, did a few tweaks to the hair to make it perfect, so reposting!] 👌🏼 So once again, all of my hair has decided to fall out in huge clumps from anesthesia 😞.. 5th time.  It’s traumatic each and every time.  I literally feel like I have no hair on my head because it’s already super fine to begin with, and still recovering from other damage.  Once again, @gardeauxwigs saves the day 🙌🏼 I never do shorter wigs but for some reason this one just spoke to me and I actually am obsessed with the length and all of the body & volume it has. 😍 After surgery, it’s things like this that make me smile.  You feel so gross in the hospital and lose a ton of modesty.  I can’t wait to see how glam I feel with some makeup & a cute outfit... whenever that happens. 🤷🏼‍♀️ #postop #tetheredcord #spinesurgery #recovery #hairloss #gardeauxwigs #makeupfree #ineedatan #chiarimalformation #warrior #eds #ehlersdanlossyndrome #survivor #wigs

These facial expressions are screen shots from my new video update & perfectly explain how I currently feel about life. 😂 People often comment on my facial expressions. It’s a joke amongst people who know me in real life that I can’t hide what I’m thinking/feeling; it always shows on my face. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Anyone else?! Link in bio for my update on my recent dr visits.

The medications I take several times a day just for them to land on top of old food in my paralyzed stomach (gasteoparesis) and sit there to either barely work a long time after taking them, or not work at all. This is why I need an N-GJ tube which my surgeon absolutely refuses to do for me. He has this wild idea that I'm going to allow him to do a cutting edge GPOEM surgery that's new for people with gasteoparesis. Not people with EDS gasteoparesis because it's different than a spasming pyloric sphincter, it's a Mast Cell issue and my intestines are so sluggish I barely use the bathroom once every 6-8 weeks. Allowing more food into my intestines will only cause an obstruction. My food allergies change constantly and cause huge blusters on my tongue and all inside of my mouth. I am so sock now I'm on the bathroom floor so nauseous with a cold washcloth on my face and neck. I've waited like this since just after Thanksgiving that I was at home in bed for. Same with Christmas and now... tomorrow is another holiday. I'm done. Need to find a doctor who will do the tube. I'm not going to be a surgeon's token EDS guinea pig.

My shirt says I'm fine but I'm not fine; besides the usual chronic pain and physical fragility shenanigans #EDS pulls with me, I actually am currently experiencing the worst migraine I've had in a while and the pain level is getting so high that my vision is hardcore blurred and I'm nauseous from it. But the ableds will still likely say I "look fine" so... [Image Description: Annie stands with her cane, her hair is loose and she is wearing sunglasses. Her shirt reads the words, "I'm fine".

But the ableds will still likely say I "look fine" so... [Image Description: Annie stands with her cane, her hair is loose and she is wearing sunglasses. Her shirt reads the words, "I'm fine".

On Friday I was tested for hyper mobility. I got the highest possible score of 9/9. Which makes sense because I have been like that all my life.
This week brings more tests and more doctors. I hope that it includes answers.

2019 #goals I want my strength back. I want my LIFE back. It’s hard to believe that these pictures were taken less than a year ago. #thisisinvisibleillness Not to say I wasn’t struggling back then, but I was never this deconditioned in my lifetime as I currently am. 😢
On a positive note, there’s an exciting week ahead. GI and neurology appointments to look forward to, it took me months to get a follow-up. While I am very fortunate that my medical team responds to the countless emails I send them, I feel the need for face-to-face visits. 
CT scan is next to rule out carcinoid tumor given that my 5-HIAA came back double the limit. I am not worried, since carcinoid syndrome values are 3-4 times the normal, my endocrinologist reassured me, plus, I am aware that 5-HIAA is elevated in MCAS and malabsorption states. It explains my nutritional status....I refused the contrast dye and the ocreotide scan, even with premedication with IV benadryl. No more dyes in my body, I would most likely go into anaphylaxis. 
Lots of plans for the months ahead, I must build some muscle mass & I mean it. I was never able to reach the minimal threshold in fat free mass for my height and age, functional medicine has been monitoring me for years. I am way below critical. I also hold on to a lot of fluid due to my vascular permeability, mast cell driven third-spacing, and low albumin from malnutrition. Edema is painful as it stretches the skin putting pressure on every organ, joint. Hoping that the combination of cromolyn, ketotifen and @katefarms peptide formula will help. I plan on rotating formula only because it seems like I am tolerating it well, and I do not want to upset my #masties with food. I was pleasantly surprised that ketotifen has anabolic properties next to being an effective antihistamine and an overall mast cell stabilizer. I am #hopeful
I also plan on ruling out Lyme disease since it has a lot of overlapping features with MCAS. I do not remember being bitten by a tick, but you never know. 
I have yet to start my 36 weeks of cardiac rehab, next item on my list, as soon as I feel a little bit stronger. 
I want to go back to pole.

Another swipey post though I'm not on a trip this time! Just thought I would show the before and after of a trip with a chronic illness. 🤕

So last weekend we went to DC. I wasn't feeling good before we left. The typical for me lately.. Feeling faint, weak, tingly, etc. I pushed to go because I knew it was important to Greg. We were meeting up with a friend of his so I hated for us to back out completely. One day late, I made and enjoyed the trip. 🙌 We had a fun time 👫, explored the city 🏙️, ate good food 😋. I'm glad we did it!

However...and there's almost always a however, I paid for it. Even when I got myself all dolled up one of the days and was smiling away in the first picture (that mirror lighting though, how could I not 💃), that day was a struggle. I pushed to go out and explore, do lots of walking in the cold (which doesn't agree with me on a good day) ❄️. I do these things cause I want to see new things, have new experiences.. Make memories with my husband!  But I never feel 100% good, and that sucks. 🤷🏻‍♀️ On the way home is when my full on crash was beginning. After a good night of sleep, I was fighting to stay awake on the ride home at 1:00 in the afternoon. 😴 I was so exhausted. We got back and I fell asleep at 6:30 and slept for 12 hours. 😮 I woke up feeling just as miserable as I did the day before.

After a tearfest on the phone with my mom Monday morning, whining about how bad I feel and throwing myself an 'I  should be able to handle a small trip like this 😭' pitty party, I called my doctor. Got in with a nurse practitioner who ran blood tests cause she said I looked very pale. I found out that I'm extremely deficient in Vitamin D (5.3 when normal is 30 and up 🤔). I'm on supplements for that now. I'm hoping that that is the cure to my extreme exhaustion. 😬 The past couple days I've been doing a little better and am back to trying to exercise some but it's a delicate balance. One day at a time..

✨I love my lil chunky doggo and her sweet lil soul. These are from last night when I was in a massive flare up of pain & exhaustion... Lulu is the best medicine!! 🐾🐕 ✨Today I’ve been resting, playing video games, & now watching football with hubby. I’m sooooo tired & ready for bed already and it’s only 3:30pm. 😴 ✨Who else is having a restful Sunday? What are doing today? ✨💛

Sooo I may have made a go fund me. Link in bio. 
Hi, I'm Leah, a 15 year old with several medical conditions. Some of them are Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Gastroparesis, Chronic migraines, Asthma, and unexplained seizures. A service dog could give me some independence back. They could inform me of fainting spells, blood pressure and heart rate changes, blood sugar changes, and migraines. They could pull my wheelchair and when I walk provide mobility support and counterbalance. They could fetch me medications or things when I drop them. They could get help when I fall(which happens more than I like to admit), they could help with anxiety and just having that companion could help. These are just a few ways a service dog could help me. Unfortunately, the process of getting a service dog is long and expensive. Any donation large or small would help me tremendously. Thank you all so much.

I feel better today. I went outside, petted a sheep, took a short walk, embraced the cold and enjoyed the sunlight. Getting over the flu or whatever it was. Still spending 90% of time in bed but it felt so good to be out and take a short walk. Also did a lot of stretching and hopefully can go back to my exercises tomorrow. I can't afford to wait. I am extra weak now and my hips are already subluxing all over the place. My shoulder still hasn't gone to the space where it belongs and I do not even want to talk about my elbows or wrists.🙈 Bút it is good to know that my exercises and all the other things I do are working. Because withput doing them it is like my body falls apart. Telling my limbs to go to their rooms because they are grounded sure puts a smile on my face and keeps things light, but effective? Nope.😄
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was the first time in ages that I was sick without any explosive secondary infections. No ruptured eardrums, no peeing blood, no other crazy things. Look I was still pretty sick and all of the symptoms I already had flared/ are flaring big time but I am seeing this as something positive. I decided to see it as something positive. Because I need it to be.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So this was my dinner: banana-blueberry-cinnamon nicecream with kiwi, an orange with dates and a few pistachios, sprouts and microgreens with raw marinara, and a smoothie with just spinach, water and whatever there was left in the blender of my nicecream goodness. Yep, apetite is back!!😋🌱

Getting some stamping practice in is great way to help provide a creative outlet! Some of these are going to other #spoonies #zebras #mgstrong  people and supporters. In fact off to stamp #mg strong for a few and patience for myself! (Long story)

Art is everywhere and so are we. Today we are homeschooling in the Design District. These kids are amazing you guys. I’m so incredibly blessed to get to take my kids with me wherever I go. I’m so thankful for the freedom Homeschooling has provided our family. I don’t want to miss a single moment with these kids. I miss them horribly when I am away and so I soak up every second I can when I am home. .

What a sweet reminder today! One year ago we had just arrived at Give Kids the World for Henley’s wish trip. It felt like the first breath of fresh air we had received in a very long time. .
There are so many families who are in a “season of hard” right now and if that is you, Let this picture be an encouragement to you that “hard” is not forever. Our family had a completely crappy ENTIRE YEAR. This picture shows the calm after the storm. The triumph of perseverance. This picture is a reminder to me that God is faithful and he can walk an entire family through a blazing wildfire and provide protection through it all. .

Heading in for Henley’s 1 year post op MRI. Praying that as everything has settled over the past year that there is plenty of space around her brain stem on both sides. This girl is my hero 💪 for real! I had lost count and so I asked what number this one was for her. Y’all!! To date she has had 38 MRI scans and she’s only 8! 😳 #chiariwarrior #bravelikehenley #bravelikedarby #chiarimalformation #chiariawareness #chiarilife #bravecampaign #bebrave #ehlersdanlossyndrome #eds #ehlersdanlos #chiari
