Always be sure to stop and smell the flowers, spoonies! Count the little things, small happy moments, and every chance for laughter and peace. That is my #chronicjillness moment for you. #countem #simplejoys #risus

My cheeks are filling in. My eyebrows are growing back! My playlist is full of Jesus/ light trap music. I've regained 15 lbs post methotrexate ((ahh!! This took six months!)) My muscles are strong. My skin is so much clearer. My Camp Dartmouth Hitchcock headband is sweaty. I am living on love of life and blessed beyond belief for my healthcare and medical team. To my spoonies who are struggling, here is my #chronicjillness moment for you-- look yourself in the mirror and say out loud, "I am beautiful because I am strong" 😘 #loveyoursetbacks #chronicillness #autoimmunedisease #arthritiswarrior #smallwins #countyourblessings #rheumatoidarthritis #ra #spoonie #spooniewarrior #ibs #mindovermatter #campDH #kidsgetarthritistoo #arthritiscamp #postmethotrexate #postchemo #posttreatment

Trick or treat! Here at our house we love October and all the fun activities with crafting and baking! Lacey loves every part of fall because it means cuddles while I crochet, yarn everywhere, yummy smells in the kitchen while she snuggles in the nook, and pumpkin trick or treats! I adopted Lacey to help me while I was undergoing treatment. It was the best decision I ever made. She's more like a dog, honestly, but I've learned to become a cat person because of her. On this World Mental Health Day, my #ChronicJillness moment for you is to find one fall activity or craft that involves your pet! I promise, it will benefit both of you πŸ˜»πŸŽ‰πŸŽƒπŸ

There's a reason we pray to God before we eat. Praying calms the mind, soul, and body. Most importantly for us with severe IBS or IBD, is that it settles your second brain-- your gut! Taking a moment to relax, release your tensions and giving them to God allows the stomach to prepare itself to digest. A calm belly is a happy belly. So before you eat, my Chronic Jillness moment for you is to take a moment to silently say thanks and maybe it's not to God. It can be to yourself even! Calm your gut to enjoy your eating process for optimal health and happiness for both your mind and your second brain, the gut! #happybelly #ABJNSP #breakfastforone #chronicillness #spoonie #Workhard #cookharder #nomnomnom #breakfast #LowFODMAP #glutenfree #dairyfree #colorful #fall #autumn #bekindtoyourbody #chronicjillness

Sitting here in our backyard heaven, thinking about how much I love my team, my job, and my career choice. I am so proud of the hard work we've done to make this week such a great success & thinking about how much God has blessed me with such beautiful people from all over the world to be in my life. My #chronicjillness moment is and always will be to "always be joyful; never stop praying" and to "do what makes you happy". When work and your life goals align, I think it's nice to sit back and thank the big guy up there. I'm feeling blessed. #autoimmunedisease #myteamrocks #simplejoys #globalmarketing #reflect #countyourblessings

Hermoine granger hair & don't care!πŸ’πŸ» 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)😰So, 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-Yβ€’Aβ€’Y! 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 πŸ’―% 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

We are family. I got all my gingers with meπŸŽ‰Missing my boys today but excited for Jeff to get out here to Oregon for some family time!!

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 πŸ’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. Set a goal and stick to it. #curlyhair #happygirl #faith #love #trust #spoonielife #spoonie #autoimmunedisease #ra #datenight #rheumatoidarthritis #chronicillness #rawarrior #thankfulthursday #selfie #xoxo

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 recipeπŸ€“ #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 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 weekendsπŸ™πŸ»I 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 spooniesπŸ₯„βœ¨ 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. ❀️ 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. πŸŒͺβ›ˆ THIS period of your life, this low, horrible part of your life right now is about to launch you into something absolutely amazing. 🌈God 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?!"😜Running gear designed, weeded, and heat pressed by yours truly. Trained by @thomaspaquette πŸ™πŸ». #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
