That's one thing that sucks. We can't live our lives for the most part but the world keeps going and time keeps passing while we're stuck in place just trying to get through the day.

Life feels a little heavy lately. #fibromyalgia is stealing our time, joy, life away again. 7 weeks of illness. A few days of wellness here and there. .
This handful of meds are just the things he takes in the morning. He takes another handful at night. .
All these pills to lay in bed and feel slightly less bad than he would without them. Also supplements, light lamps, vitamins, low inflammation diet. Doctor demands he exercises. .
She doesn’t realize how hard it is to exercise with a sinus infection and strep and Fibro and three kids and a full time job. .
Laying in bed kills the support network and good will of friends- “He cancelled again”. “He’s sick again”. “He blew us off again”. “He isn’t making it”. .
Zero spoons every day for 7 weeks. .
It breaks our hearts and our hope and our family and the vibe of the household. And it’s hard. .
And there’s nothing we can do. .
So we pray. 
And we hold each other when we break down and cry that this is too hard and we will never make it. .
And we pray. .

Hi there, splendid fellow travelers!!! I decided to start a second more anonymous IG account. My life is incredibly challenging right now because of serious health issues in my family- myself, my daughter, my husband and our house (mold). Lyme disease, mold illness and possibly Alzheimer’s are wreaking havoc on my family’s life. And I’m in charge. My daughter and son-in-law have been living with us for just over a year and I am her caretaker, along with her husband. My own health is declining and I barely have the energy to do a fraction of the things on my plate. I’m currently depressed, overwhelmed and scared. I don’t want my daughter to feel like she is a burden and I also don’t want to concern her with my depression - so I thought I’d try a second account where I can air my true feelings without worrying her. I need a place to be real about things and I hope this can be that place. Looking forward to getting to know you all and sharing this challenging and amazing journey of life with chronic illness. . .

So, I kind of opened up to a nurse at work yesterday about my health issues and such (her son has POTS and MCAS) and I just explained how frustrated I am.
.
She helped me realize that I deserve to be helped. I deserve to find answers and find someone who will listen to me. I deserve to have a good quality of life. I told her that I don't feel sick "enough" to be paid attention to by anyone. She ensured me that it doesn't matter what i look like, something is clearly not right and I deserve help.
.
She also helped me realize that the care I am getting here in my smaller town is not good. Every doctor i have is looking at one or two things and nobody will look at the whole picture and my whole health story. I need a good internal medicine doctor to be managing everything and we just don't have them here.
.
She reccommended a clinic in a larger town that now sees her son and they are very impressed.  They seem to like puzzles and look at the whole picture and doing extensive testing. She said that the wait is long, but she thinks it would be very helpful and worth the wait. I am desperate.
.
I am currently in the ER with my sister for pneumonia. She looks the part, she looks sick and like she has chronic stuff. People pay attention to her. My mom was all over her and whats wrong because she looks sick. I don't want to be in her position, i don't want to be critically sick, but sometimes it would be helpful to have something be wrong that others can see. .
I wake up everyday feeling miserable with pain and overwhelming exhaustion. But because I am like this everyday and I look fine it doesn't matter. Nobody, including myself, have even realized what my health has taken from me the last several years. I deserve to have a quality of life. No, i am not om my death bed, i don't need to be ssen in the ER, but something is not right and I deserve to be helped and paid attention to as well.

So many different sides to one story. 
What’s shaking baby! As most of you know (considering I’m using this account to literally talk to myself and hopefully other spoonies) I’m Samantha, and turns out, collagen is pretty much vital for overall function of the body. Also turns out, I don’t have great collagen in my body. Peachy. 
In all these pictures there’s a different scenario, first one? Me laughing and dancing at a bonfire. Second? Me on a cane when my illness first hit a low. Third? Me getting my volunteer stuff done but feeling so sick and about 15 pounds lighter from not being able to digest without pain. Fourth? My legs had given out completely and it was too unstable to walk. Fifth? Heart monitors and coffee (good move sam). Sixth? Me in bed from an infection trying to make the best of it with laughs. So on and so fourth. All of these are different sides of my life. Isn’t that crazy?
The purpose of this account is to show myself and other people that, I’m not a disease defined person. That I’m a student (at my top choice college), I’m a friend to many wonderful people, I’m a lesbian because girls are amazing, I’m a loud mouth because life is too busy to be quiet, I’m a sunflower lover, I’m a dog mom, and I’m sick. All at once. 
Sometimes I forget a flaw in my genetic makeup isn’t a flaw in my character. It’s time to change that for me and hopefully make some cool friends while doing it. If nothing else, at least I can use Instagram as a weird, very open diary. Ok cool- that’s my rant

I've been too sick to post anything (or do anything lol) this week, but I'm trying not to let it get me down. I'm trying to stay focused on my goals and believing that I will achieve them as long as I don't lose sight of that vision. I'm working on more than just weight loss right now; I'm working on reconnecting with myself, rediscovering my talents and strengths, and taking back what my #chronicillness has stolen from me.  This year is about transformation of all kinds and I'm excited about it. I just have to remember that speedbumps will happen, and that I can't let them bring me to a stop.

‘What it will take to reinvent yourself is the burning question of the day. Picking up the pieces will involve having to go back over old ground. As you re-enter that territory you will find that there’s not much left of the people, places, and things that you were so sure would be there for you. It looks like you’re on your own again, trying to figure out how to turn straw into gold. This won’t be as hard as it looks. At the moment, the test involves knowing deep down inside that your every move is being guided by forces that are always there when the going gets rough.’ #CalGarrison #scorpio #horoscope 🦂// #CF #cysticfibrosisawareness #cfwarrior #65roses #astrology #astrological #sunset #sunrise #cflife #sky_sultans #world_bestsky #rebel_sky #instasky #instasunset #instaskylovers #sky #clouds #clouds_of_our_world #cloudaholic #reflections #total_reflections #nature #naturephotography #landscape #chronicillness #landscapephotography

Above everything else, feeling healthy and normal for the first time in years is everything. For so long I’ve let my “sickness” determine how my days were going to go and how I was going to live. Not anymore. Back on track with new medications, eating better and able to get to the gym EVERYDAY for a month. To say I’m greatful for all the people helping me in this journey is an understatement, finally excited for the future again, it looks a lot brighter than it did this time last year. 💪🏻💥

Uhmmm why don't these things work for us? I could take tylonel, advil and any other over the counter medicine every few hours and it still wouldn't help.

I remember hiking this 14er (my very first!) I wasn't in the best shape but I was still pretty fit. Well I struggled my butt up the mountain dragging behind my boyfriend. My chest was tight and breathing was pretty hard. I thought it was from the elevation-I had never hiked at such a high altitude before. I thought I was just more out of shape than I thought.
.
.
.
Looking back now...it was my ALLERGIES! I was in a new place when fall was just beginning. That means ragweed was all over the place, leaves were falling (mold growing!), and new pollen/tree exposure. It's a relief to know that the next time I have the chance to hike a 14er, hopefully my allergies won't make it quite so challenging!

I shaved my face! And it's swollen! 
It looks like I've gained weight here but this is the first time I've been able to eat in a week.

My babies 💚 .
.
Finley (on the left) is 16 months, Oliver (on the right) is seven! I definitely feel like my MS was triggered by pregnancy/child birth both times. After delivering Oliver, my symptoms slowly began to surface. I truly believe that the stress of pregnancy/childbirth acted as catalyst in the development of my MS. .
.
My symptoms improved vastly during my pregnancy with Finley, but came back with a vengeance in the months after delivery. I participated in an MS and pregnancy research study with Finley’s pregnancy, which was extremely eye opening. It was the first time I had ever tracked my symptoms and habits over time (about 18 months), it made me so much more aware of my triggers and overall progression. Does anyone else feel that their MS other other health issues were triggered by pregnancy?
.

These little guys make my world go round. Being a Mama is the greatest gift ❤️

End of day 4 of the COPD flare. Finally breathing good. I actually got a much needed shower in with no fear of passing out. I even caught myself humming while changing the garbage bag. Life is good. Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes. I know they played a major role in how I feel now. Hugs all.💗

Oh be jealous. This week's date night is brought to you a la our bed!  First weekend after surgery so I still cant sit up very long so we are hanging out in bed!  I love my husband!

@drphil said that 100% of relationships where one is the caregiver will fail.  He is so wrong. This man has been right by my side through 5 surgeries, countless hospital trips and a few diagnoses.  He isnt going anywhere!

Monday Reminder: 
No one knows what you are capable of or where you are going to go.
Your path is your own to walk.
Focus on the good.
Focus on your strength even when it falters.
Breathe.
And pet ALL the doggies.

Does anyone else with migraine get triggered by someone touching their head or playing with their hair? I let me little cousin do my hair (as shown, pretty good braid for a 5 year old 😉) and afterward my headache was unbearable. .

We put so much trust into our society. 
We trust our
Government 
Doctors 
Schools 
Communities .
We trust the people around us and what they tell us, prescribe and teach us. We trust blindly. We trust and we don’t ask questions. We trust the systems that have been put into place from a different time and we are expected to what.... not progress!? Not ask questions? Not challenge?? .
By not questioning and not challenging those around us, we end up being the status quo. We end up being part of the problem and not the solution. .
It’s completely mind boggling to me that we trust in our medical professionals all the way. They diagnosis us and we listen. We take the little paper with the prescribed medication and we don’t ask questions. We don’t even think about a holistic or more natural treatment. And why ??? Because two men - scientists - discovered physics and all natural / holistic views and approaches that were used for CENTURIES disappeared. 
Because of the greedy government and the laws made by men; we are all walking around with chronic illnesses and cancer because we are blindly trusting this fuckers and swallowing anything they give us because of social conditioning and “trust” in our society. .
It’s enraging. It’s enraging that we trust our doctors when they make us worse. It’s disgusting that we trust our medically trained and “educated” professionals to make us better when all they do create more problems because they don’t LISTEN to us. They listen to the symptoms and diagnose according to that - not to who WE ARE and what WE NEED as individuals. .
Yes Western medicine helps and is miraculous in many ways and very much needed. But so is Eastern medicine. 
You shouldn’t have to choose just one. Doctors shouldn’t be learning just one. You shouldn’t be shamed or judged or questioned for choosing a more natural approach to YOUR health. .

I need to whine a bit. Please feel free to keep scrolling... I had mostly an okay day. The laundromat was uner crowded, but otherwise it was a good day. WHY DO I FEEL LIKE SHIT ALL OF THE SUDDEN?! I'm guessing part of it was because I went to dinner with mum's family. They are more understanding of my mental health and limitations now, but I still derealize everytime I see them to some extent, so maybe 'cuz that? I haven't had POTS-like symptoms since mid winter!! I want a hug..... I'm a fucking whiney child rn.....

I might be in a hole right now, but I'll get out.  And you can too.  Make the decision to take control.  Make the decision to have a good day, a strong day, fight for whatever you need to fight for.  You can do this. 🤘

Happy Monday my Diabetes Alive family, today is a good day for me, as some of you know I am the founder of Diabetes Alive, I have lived withType 1 Diabetes for 38 years and currently have stage 4 renal failure. I am waiting on a double organ transplant, I currently have dialysis 3 times a week to keep me alive and I pray that my miracle comes soon. Many of you that know me, know that I don’t complain much about what’s going on, I just get on with it and soldier on, however on the inside most days it’s really the hardest struggle to just look at myself in the mirror and actually accept what my life has become. The mental challenge along with the physical challenges has been extremely hard, Diabetes on its own is hard enough to manage without a complication like renal failure. I pray with all my heart that no one has to go through this it’s not only taxing emotionally, physically but mentally on the individual but on their near and dear ones. So today I am grateful because for the first time in months I feel ok and I am starting to recognize the person I see in the mirror. .

The mental challenge along with the physical challenges has been extremely hard, Diabetes on its own is hard enough to manage without a complication like renal failure. I pray with all my heart that no one has to go through this it’s not only taxing emotionally, physically but mentally on the individual but on their near and dear ones. So today I am grateful because for the first time in months I feel ok and I am starting to recognize the person I see in the mirror. . . #diabetesawareness #diabetesalive #me #insulin #raw #nofilter #nofilterneeded #art #instagram #insulinpump #smile #nofear #depression #instadaily #instagood #repost #feelings #chronicillness #food #family #friends #keepitreal - 1 hour ago

Hi beautiful people, I hope you are all doing well and are having pain free/ less intensive pain days. 
I haven’t been on this account since January (which is slightly embarrassing because my last post said i would be on here more). Just thought i would let you know that I am okay, im struggling but I am okay. Coursework has been intense as its my final year in uni (finally!). But it should be easing up now, and I truly do aim to post on here more. And hopefully interact with you amazingly strong people some more. 
Sending you all epic amounts of love 💕 #chronicillness #chronispain #migraine #chronicmigraine #spoonie #hi #positivity

I’d say Sunday meal prep went well 😋🤪
•
•
•
I’ve got plans for the week, lots to do and workouts to enjoy. 
So what I won’t be doing is eating crappy food or wasting time in the kitchen when I could be working. •
There’s something good for my brain about feeling prepared for the week! 😍😊☺️

Blurry picture of puppy cuddles! #essentialtremor problems!
☺
.
Had a nice smoothie for breakfast. Didn't feel much like eating so thought this was a good option. Mug reads - hanging with my gnomies 🤣
.
The plan of a quiet recovery day was interrupted to go into work for a few hours. But I've been home for a few hours now, packed for my trip to the city and getting ready for bed. Hoping to start feeling better at some point. 👍

What are your routines to get ready for the week? 🥄

In a way, I feel like someone is trying to tell me something, because I’ve noticed a common theme in the conversations I’ve had with close friends lately...the basis being—how in the world are we supposed to manage all the stress that life seems to be posing lately?

See, people always talk about having perspective...but I often feel it’s the scope of perspective that matters. I’ve realized, that our perspective doesn’t necessarily mean focusing on the whole—as for many of us...this can feel extremely overwhelming. Instead, it may be honing in on the littlest of things in front of us, instead of stepping back to view the “big” picture.

We all have a different story, with a different premise & unique specifics. Yet, we’re all still climbing the SAME mountain...not only trying to achieve a life of balance, but to find contentment✨ in the process.

I personally have had a grip of change in the last year—some very positive, & some unforeseen & insanely challenging. I also currently lead a much slower-paced life, which can bring on a different set of stresses, & also puts me in a position where I’m alone with my thoughts almost constantly. It’s that buzzing in my brain that I so often fight to control, yet sometimes the volume seems unbearably loud.

This is me—so tired, but smiling—with my youngest rescue, as we took both her & my senior down the street for coffee early this morning. THIS☝🏻...is what perspective looks like for me. It’s fixating on the smallest of joys, the quality time I am so fortunate to have with my family, even if it’s a mere 30-min coffee date. I used to take these times with a grain of salt...but if I’ve learned anything in the last year, it’s that THESE small blips on the map are exactly what we strive for. They’re in front of us so often—literally staring at us in the face—and it’s up to us to be present enough to recognize these gifts. This...right here, is contentment. 🙏🏻✨💋xx #thegiftofgoods

I honestly never thought that anything good could come out of being diagnosed with a host of autoimmune diseases during the past few months. Turns out, it has only helped solidify and even increase my excitement and fervor for entering into the medical field, in particular optometry! 🕶👓 Not only can many systemic diseases be caught ahead of time through an eye exam, but optometry is a primary health care provider that, for many, may sometimes be the ONLY doctor that they see. 👀🧐 What a privilege to impact and serve others in such a way. 🙏🏼👩🏽‍⚕️ ▫️

We all go through silent battles. While it may be hard in the moment, know that it is happening to make you stronger, or to prove how strong you already are.
