Vanmorgen bij de fibro kliniek getest op mijn geheugen. Allerlei oefeningen gedaan. Oefeningen die ik vroeger lachend met 2 vingers in de neus zou hebben gedaan en waar ik nu serieus bij moest nadenken. Ook simpele vragen fout beantwoord. De therapeute zei dat ik me geen zorgen hoefde te maken. 'Hoort er allemaal bij', maar voel me toch onzeker en n beetje down. Accepteren of erbij neerleggen zijn dingen die ik nooit goed heb gekund.😞 #livingwithfibro#livingwithchronicillness#brainfog
I have a 2017 hangover.
It was a year that physically aged me more than the last 5 years put together. I’m still recovering.
Mentally and emotionally I’m in a better place than I have been since...I don’t know when.
Here’s to hoping that my physical condition will soon realign to match how the rest of me is doing!
Until then I thank you all for your understanding and patience while I rest my body.
I know I’m not out and about like I used to be and it really isn’t you, it’s me! 😉
I invested in new shoes tonight for walking. My feet had really started hurting after my walks, so I bought nice, new shoes tonight. And, they match my rug. I only think in purple and mint these days. 😄 #newshoes#walksomemore#gettinghealthy
I don’t have one passion. I don’t have one driving force that keeps me going. I am scattered. All the time. And I wrote about it at the blog, melissacrogle.com. Do you ever feel like you don’t have a passion? Like you just want to do all the things? If so check out the blog. I explain how I got to be ok with it and there is a link to my all time favorite talk by @elizabeth_gilbert_writer. It was very much on my mind today. #scattered#beahummingbird#followyourcuriosity
Today, this is the best representation of how I feel. I am there but I am caged and hidden by the mesh. I am working hard to break free and dance again. My mantra today was “I can do the hard things”. I will get back to dancing shape. #health#dancer#iwilldanceagain#butnotintheseshoes 😜
Trying to be lady like at the bus stop just doesn't work for me, Especially in a skirt but hey, Life is good, nearly 4 days off Tramadol and I'm feeling amazing now, I'll admit that the first 72 hours were pretty shitty and I felt like crap however now I feel really really good, I'm waking up earlier, I have more energy and I just feel more like myself in general, So far I've had barely any pain which is absolutely amazing and I feel like this was the right time to come off it, Now I'll just stick to the medications I have to be on 😂 😂 😂 (asthma inhalers, nasal hayfever spray and eczema creams 😂) Otherwise I feel sexy, amazing and like I can deal with anything life throws at me ☺
I feel so much better after a good night’s sleep and a productive morning. And hey, there is a tiny bit of purple in my hair. So, life looks a lot better today. Just goes to show, bad days don’t last. I just have to remember that when I am having one. Thanks for lifting me up friends! 😘💜😘
I am having one of those days where nothing goes quite right. Like my hair. There is no more gray, which is good. But it is supposed to be purple, which it is not. Ugh. I think I am going to bed early tonight. Maybe a good sleep reset will fix my mojo. #imissmypurplehair
Yummy breakfast time! 🍳 Scrambled eggs cooked in ghee, sweet potato-apple hash, and avocado. I make a big batch of the hash so I can just reheat throughout the week for breakfast. Saves me a lot of time in the morning and makes breakfast quick and simple because eggs are so easy to whip together. I plan to make a batch of homemade turkey breakfast sausage, as well. I’m also drinking warm lemon water. 🍋 #healthybreakfastideas
Tonight, I really wish my phone could capture what I actually see. The moonrise was so awesome and this pic just doesn’t do it justice. Today was a great day so I am celebrating! #wolfmoon#fullmoon#happy
Happy 2018 everyone. I set an intention every year and this year is health. I explain it all on the blog, melissacrogle.com Check it out and let me know what you think. I hope you all have a fantastic year. #health#settingintentions#2018isgoingtobegreat
And the after. I have created a new “workout” room for myself. I need a space where I can really stretch out so this will fit the bill. Now, I can do all my roller body work and stretching that helps me beat the never ending soreness. #stretching#ilovemyfoamroller#mighthavetodancetoo
I am still not feeling well but I am so tired of sitting still. Cleaning my second bedroom was on my to do list this weekend, so here we go. Hoping it is a lot more usable space by the new year. #organization
I have been sick for a couple of days now. So much pain and no appetite but I ran out of Tylenol today so I made my way to the store. Got my sickness survival kit replenished. Hopefully, I can kick this sickness soon. #ihatebeingsick 😷
Merry Christmas to all who celebrate this particular holiday. My favorite part is giving gifts to the little ones in my world. And this year, got a white Christmas to top it off. I hope you get to enjoy your holiday and I will see you when it is over. #merrychristmas#whitechristmas#happy
This hat has seen a lot of holiday parties. Tonight I got to wear it at the party for my new day job. I had a lot of fun and I love getting to know people better. Now time to get some rest. #holidayparties#lovemycoworkers#happyholidays
