Hermoine granger hair & don't care!๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป Having Psoriasis means sometimes just letting the hair do what it wants and leaving it product free! My least favorite thing about curly swirly hair is that it takes a lot of product to keep the curls from turning into a frizz fest which always ends up turning into an itchy scalp or sometimes even open wounds (which are so gross by the way)๐Ÿ˜ฐSo, my #chronicjillness moment for you: Let your hair be FREE! Don't use product for an entire weekend! #curlyhair #naturalhair #hermoinegranger #brunetteswithblueeyes #frenchbraids #braidsfordays #autoimmune #psoriasis #rheumatoidarthritis #ra #pso #chronicillness #longhairdontcare #xo #happiness #simplejoys #freebird

Happy Fri-Yโ€ขAโ€ขY! Looking back on Monday's hike for a little #FBF and thinking of how sad it is that much of our Oregon wonders have been ruined. My #chronicjillness moment for you should take place every single day.I ask that we all take a little extra step of consciousness and care. Think twice about how something can impact generations to come. Maybe it's not smoking with a child nearby and going around the corner, maybe it's contributing five bucks a month to @curearthritis or another research based company, or perhaps it's carrying up an extra gallon of water to be sure the fire goes ๐Ÿ’ฏ% out at the end of the night. Whatever you do, consider the impact on other people's lives around you. #eaglecreekfire #bluepool #oregon #nature #nikon #naturephotography #getoutside #takeahike #arthritis #spoonie #autoimmune #consideration #generation #cotopaxi

I've seen my dad cry 3 times in my life. The third was when her husband, my uncle Heggie, died. It's amazing how you can understand someone by just one life experience and say more than words can with a single hug. My aunt and I don't have to speak a lot. We say with our eyes and our hugs even when months and months have passed-- we just get so much of one another. It's amazing to be so like one member of your family but also aspire to be even more like them! God has blessed me with her in my life and I'm so grateful for these hugs particularly. My #chronicjillness moment for you this week is to speak, but without words. Maybe it's an action or a gesture. It could be as simple as looking up from your phone while in line for coffee or on a train and just acknowledge someone and give them a warm smile. You never know, but it could mean the world to them. When my auntie engages with listening and laughing or just smiling, it makes me feel so important. I encourage us all to be more like Auntie Marge. #myfamily #auntie #USeh #rendezvous #myfavoritecanadian #listen #laughter #smile #hug #xo #spreadkindness #joy #love #smile #xo #instamoment

When you have a whole pizza to yourself with two salads and everything is #lowfodmap #glutenfree #dairyfree AND you're in your #CampJAM tee, life is complete๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ•My #chronicjillness moment for you is to find that meal that feeds all those cravings but also sticks to your crazy diet!

I don't always go out on a school night, but when I do I curl my hair and sit with good company in the middle of the bar and talk about how much I love my faith with the Juan and only๐Ÿ’šMy #chronicjillness challenge for you this weekend is to find what your number one passion is and promise yourself that nothing will come in the way of that, not even your own doubts, disbeliefs, poor habits, or temptations.

Thank you so much for following my autoimmune & chronic illness journey. Today my #chronicjillness challenge for you is to DWMYH (Do what makes YOU happy). For about three months I've wanted to try "cookie flooding". So, this weekend I made it happen! I decided to celebrate having 2K+ followers by doing something that was challenging, but also made me happy. This recipe was awesome and most importantly, #lowfodmap and #glutenfree Please DM me for the recipe๐Ÿค“ #thankyou #lowfodmapdiet #LOWFODMAP #GF #glutenfree #cookies #cookieflooding #rheumatoidarthritis #arthritis

I think the best part about my family is the constant need to always enjoy the moment and soak up everything nature has to offer. My family goes with the wind, so it's no wonder that our family motto is "que sera". My #chronicjillness challenge for you: go with the flow and find any bit of happiness you can; hold onto it. #twohappygirls #toohappytocare #queserasera #instagood #hippylife #summer #dresses #swirl #twirl #mothernature #motheranddaughter #sunshine #simple #authentic #love

Had a great weekend eating vegan goodies at @nobonesbeachclub, petting bunnies, walking in arthritis friendly heels, meeting lots of new friends, listening to random bands at dive bars, strolling through rose gardens, and experimenting with #lowfodmap recipes. How is everyone's weekend going?! If you're in Portland, please be safe and try to just stay off the roads!

When #kidsgetarthritistoo it's important that we work together with the #ArthritisFoundation to provide them a fun, safe, and accepting space to learn how to thrive with their life long autoimmune disease! This year I will be striving to find a new favorite place on Earth-- Camp JAM right here in the #Pdx area! This camp is dedicated to JIA families and I'm excited to be part of each family's Arthritis journey! I know my family is so supportive and I'm excited to learn about how other families support their loved one. This weekend I will be MIA, working hands on with our chronic illness & Arthritis community. Thanks Camp JAM for accepting me into your program!

This week, I'm my own #WCW because I'm crushing goals in therapy, kicking butt at cycling with two a days, owning my dietary restrictions, committing my time to family, my Spoonie Community, and God, accepting all medical news that's been coming my way, and doing a pretty good job at managing to be in bed at 9 even on the weekends๐Ÿ™๐ŸปI used to think, "how does she do that?" when I admired someone just rocking at life. My #chronicjillness moment was striving to become that person. I figured it out. Click the link in my bio to learn one of the tricks up my sleeve (or type in bit.ly/autoimmune-cheat-day).

Happy #momentumMonday fellow spoonies๐Ÿฅ„โœจ The third time I ever came off of chemo, I decided to celebrate for half a year by training for a half marathon. I worked full time, went to school full time, and trained part time. This Monday, I am proud of myself. โค๏ธ I love myself, including all of the setbacks from my immune system. My #chronicjillness moment for you today is to motivate you to do the same-- LOVE and EMBRACE every single part of yourself. If you've been sick for awhile, felt that you've failed, feel like you don't compare or aren't doing well, please do me a favor: take a moment and love your setback. ๐ŸŒชโ›ˆ THIS period of your life, this low, horrible part of your life right now is about to launch you into something absolutely amazing. ๐ŸŒˆGod always has a plan for us and works with momentum. Your setback is God's preparation to launch you into something so great, you'd never see it coming. Life is meant for love and laughter, so I ask you, "WHY SO SERIOUS?!"๐Ÿ˜œRunning gear designed, weeded, and heat pressed by yours truly. Trained by @thomaspaquette ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป. #chronicjillness

#flashbackfriday to this #chronicjillness moment when my studio friends helped make wearing a mask in class a bit easier with lots of laughs! Being on biologics or chemo meant constantly making sure charcoal didn't stick to my lungs. We went through about a pack of charcoal a week with 25 students. You can only imagine the dust! For all those artists out there using oil, charcoal, and pencil, please COVER YOUR FACE! Your chances of COPD and Cancer are significantly higher when on these meds! #artstudent #studio #chemo #biologics #copd #rheum #arthritis #ra #facemask #fbf #fools
