That girl is a lot of us.. I have a question for you today. I know a lot of people have their choice of religion or non religious but what do you do when a friend tells you leave it all to god and you will be healed soon? When you know that you have a debilitating illness.. 🤔 They tell me don’t let anything stop you from doing what you love, and I understand that but we all know our bodies do what they want and sometimes we push our limits but at what cost are we going to keep punishing ourselves to be the normal standard for the healthy..? Why does society think we have to prove ourselves successfully in the money making side of life. Of course everyone of us would love to have the ability to grind and hustle at least it will make things more affordable treatment wise. A lot of us don’t even have the time going to see doctors taking care of your health is the main priority but everyone thinks you have given up on your goals and dreams because you’re not “putting in work” or “chasing paper” lol.. I had so many goals and dreams that I really want to do but if your body doesn’t have the ability to make those commitments how do you go about them. All the goals and dreams I have are made for more able bodies than mine. What do you tell someone that says “don’t let anything stop you” when you know your body does? Love my friends but sometimes they don’t get it no matter how much you explain what you’re going through day to day just to survive. #chronicillnessquotes#chronicallyill#chronicillness#chronicpain#chronicfatigue#spoonie#spoonieproblems#fibromyalgia#itp#lupus#cancer#ibd#eds#endo#ra#ms#pots#lyme#crohns#pcos#ptsd#anxiety#depression#insomnia#eccedentesiast#butyoudontlooksick#thyroidproblems#pain#staystrong#thespooniechronicles
I decided to continue the journey of the bowl I demonstrated throwing off the hump. This is a pretty generic trimming video. Total elapsed time was about 3 minutes before editing. Tomorrow will be a short video on slip decoration for this bowl.
Det kom lite grejer till mig idag! En lättare och bättre rollator med ett ryggstöd. En bräda att sitta på när jag duschar vilket är asbra då jag var seriöst 3 sekunder från att svimma i duschen igår! Det ska komma en arbetsstol att ha i köket som kommer vara hjälpsam när jag lagar mat. En transportrullstol att ha tills vi kan få komma till hjälpmedelscentralen och få hjälp att välja ut en mer passande för mig. Jag var så rädd förra året att jag skulle behöva sånna här hjälpmedel och nu är jag bara glad att dom finns tillgängliga! #ehlersdanlossyndrome#posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome#pots#spoonie
Rainy, windy(!!) day in Tropea. Lovely red onion, tomato, arugula bruschetta, compliments of my great traveling partners, Marie and Marilyn. Oh, and the market had artichokes. They were beautiful! Up next, Naples for pizza and espresso. #redonion#rainyday#Tropea#artichokes#bruschetta
dysautonomia - the dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system.
this system controls all involuntary functions - breathing, blood pressure, heart rate, temperature control, digestion, and more. -
chronic illness and invisible illness ARE real. just because you can't see it like a broken arm and you haven't heard of it doesn't mean there aren't people suffering. my entire life, every aspect of it, has changed because of this fucking illness. I'm finally okay with talking about it - but I'll never be someone who is proud of my illnesses. I don't believe in that. but I will be an advocate. I will talk about it, I will share how it's affected my life and how I cope. -
I can’t stand it when a doctor says I am depressed, NOT because there is anything wrong with being depressed and you certainly shouldn’t be ashamed of it, but because they are actually labelling me wrongly, I have Secondary Depression due to an existing condition and I can tell you now if I didn’t have all this pain I certainly wouldn’t have days of feeling depressed and helpless, although we are all entitled to feel a little blue at times, it’s part of life. Don’t be quick to label someone is what I say to those who diagnose me incorrectly. Here’s a little information on Depression and the differences - Depression occurs when a neurotransmitter in the brain known as serotonin is imbalanced in the brain, hence affecting mood and personality. This condition affects millions of people at some point in their lives. The classification of depression is a controversial topic that has stirred much debate among psychiatrists. The reason behind this is the notion that if there are different types of depression; then the outcome, causes and response to treatment will differ.
Primary Depression - is not triggered by any other psychological or medical cause. Rather, this type of depression is triggered by psychological instability, genetic predisposition, medications or substances.
Secondary Depression - Unlike primary depression, this kind of depression is triggered by a medical condition. 💜
