Grandpa Tague, I love you so. ๐Ÿ’™ This is my favorite Christmas memory! I encourage you all to share both old and new memories here on the gram! My #chronicjillness moment for you today is just to remember that Jesus is the reason for the season and to look around you this holiday to thank God for every little detail that brings you joy. For this guy, it was this Jamaican wig. What brings you joy this Christmas? #grandpa #christmas #favoritememory

5 years later, this jacket is still my favorite. Thanks Hip! Flight to San Diego was a breeze. Every time I fly I'm so grateful for the mask my sister had made for me. The three people in my row were hacking up a lung the entire way. My #ChronicJillness moment for you this holiday season is to protect yourself from...well...yourself! Block those germs out so your wacky immune system doesn't go haywire! #autoimmunedisease #rheumatoidarthritis #rheumatoiddisease #ra #psoriasis #arthritis #arthritiswarrior #spoonie #spoontheory #medicalmask

Last day of work before our family heads out to the sunshine! Our work campus was so beautiful yesterday with the freezing fog. My #chronicjillness moment for you today-- get outside, take a walk, and look around for inspiration. For me, it was this & I'm happy to share it all with all of you.#homestretch #work #vacation #christmasvacation #nature #lookup #lookaround
Yellow, I love you won't you tell me your name๐Ÿ‹ Lovin' this homemade concoction Lee made to get my inflammation down. Lee, James, Suj, Al, and Ayo are the best caretakers. Not a day goes by that I don't thank God for them. I am beyond blessed for their support and love. When I sip tea, I often think about gratitude. I started practicing this mantra early this year, where I take a sip of tea and I thank God for something or someone. This positive thinking has really transformed my life. Even on "bad" days, I sit in the break room, make tea, and don't leave until I've said 10 thank yous. My #chronicjillness moment for you is to do the same-- sip your tea, and with each sip, recognize what you are grateful for. #gratitude #happymoments #simplejoys #mindoverbody #autoimmunedisease #healthyliving #spoonie #spoontheory #yellow #lemon #ginger #tea #mantras #meditation

My #ChronicJillness moment for you is to recognize what Spoonies you look up to! One of my favorite cousins suffers from Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia with salt wasting deficiency. He's a Spoonie Warrior and an artist just like me! I look up to this guy a lot, actually. He's SO true to himself and his passions and always, always takes the time for important things in life and sometimes that's self meditation through art. Growing up and always making something out of nothing in our forts in Quebec in the woods taught him the valuable lesson of "one man's trash is another man's treasure". This guy now produces clothing made out of recycled or unwanted clothing with custom embroidery and colors. He's just...brilliant! #spoonies #allthehotsauce #cousins #spooniewarrior #RIC #rhodeisland #rendezvous #canadalife #fightforyourlife #autoimmune #ra #jia #jra #adrenalhypoplasiacongential #AHC #yellow #artists #arttherapy #upcycle

My #chronicjillness moment for you today is to have gratitude, understand where others came from, and embrace differences. Growing up, we'd celebrate at the China Inn in Pawtucket, RI for everything. Going back to this place, nothing brings me more joy than going through the back door into the kitchen to see our Chinese family. We were raised "overseas Chinese", meaning we are one family, no matter the language, cultural, or appearance differences. These people are family and from a young age, I'm glad I was exposed to the importance of hard work in my family of running a restaurant, the importance of celebrating other cultural holidays outside of Catholic ones, and the beauty of detail in cuisine and service to others. Now, my Uncle Luis runs a restaurant, a YMCA, a Chinese elderly home, a Chinese University housing program, a Chinese Christian Church, and works to build a city up from poverty every single day. He's the man and he started in America with very little. Support the people who make a difference in this world for the better and show your gratitude by taking the time to learn about their life. In a world with a racist bigot in control, I urge you to take it upon yourself to show our children the importance of other cultures and choose love instead of racism, no matter the religious, cultural, or language differences. In our house, we teach Mason about other cultures and point out similarities of other children from around the world with his interests, colors, and features. Life is about loving differences. #chooselove #chooselistening #chooseunderstanding #choosekindness #bethechange #children #raisethemright #bonusmom #teach #lifelesson #culture #language #world

You guys! I was cleaning my room and I found my finger brace!!! Join me in this little celebration ๐ŸŽ‰ This deformity began when I was 8. I've learned to embrace the change my fingers go through. Without my finger brace, this is what my joint does...it twists and turns upwards and over. It's very painful, which is why I love my OT and the braces he makes me๐Ÿ˜ŠWhile I can't stop the joint deformities, I can help the pain with simple little plastic molds lol. I hope you're all having a pain free day! I know I'm about to.

Is blood work Wednesday a thing?! ...cause it should be๐Ÿ˜œ I had a new nurse today and she was super sweet. She constantly kept checking to see if I was ok. Fun fact about me: the most tubes I've had drawn at one time was 23! Luckily, it was around the time butterfly clips became more popular so it was just one needle. It's taken me FOREVER to be comfortable around needles. If there's any Chronic Jillness advice I can give, it is to ask questions about blood while it's being drawn and read about blood. Seriously...exposure therapy works miracles! #bloodwork #wednesday #yuck #blood #nursesrock #blackandwhite #autoimmune #spoonie #rheumatoidarthritis #arthritis #everymonth #biologic #treatment #spoontheory #chronicjillness #anemia #ra #jra #jia

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" ๐Ÿ˜˜ #loveyoursetbacks #chronicillness #autoimmunedisease #arthritiswarrior #smallwins #countyourblessings #rheumatoidarthritis #ra #spoonie #spooniewarrior #ibs #mindovermatter #campDH #kidsgetarthritistoo #arthritiscamp #postmethotrexate #postchemo #posttreatment

Receiving my infusion today-- a perfect way to actively celebrate World Arthritis Awareness Day and all the medical advancements research teams have made in the past 25 years that I have lived with JRA/ JIA! I was diagnosed at 1 and am so happy I found doctors whom I love, my Spoonie and Arthritis Community, an amazing job that has a phenomenal support system and healthcare, and a family that does everything in their power to help me fight when I think I don't have it in me! You all contribute to helping me fight my own immune system every single day and I'm eternally grateful for all these blessings in my life! Today I do not shed light on the bad parts of Arthritis. Together, let's focus on the amazing blessings God continues to provide. My #chronicjillness moment for you today, Spoonies, is to come up with five reasons Arthritis {or your chronic illness} makes you a better you! We can't #curearthritis today, but we can control our minds to believe in the good and positive things that our disease brings to our lives! #arthritis #spoonie #pso #ra #jia #jra #rheumatoid #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease #worldarthritisday #love #positivevibes #goodvibes #health #mindovermatter #findacure #worldarthritisday #arthritisawareness #wad #arthritisawarenessmonth #pso #jia #jra #ra #idiopathicarthritis #worldarthritisday2017 #research #govolunteer #arthritiswalk #jinglebellrun #jinglebellwalk #championofYES #rawarrior

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 ๐Ÿ˜ป๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ

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

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!

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

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.
