What do you mean no caffeine? Reading up on some wellness tips. Some are easier than others! While I can probably survive without my morning cup of coffee, I'm not ready to give it up all together. โ˜•๏ธ #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #antiinflammatorydiet #rheumatoidarthritis #coffee #caffeine #brewhaha #wellness #autoimmunewellness

Excited to share my experiences of raising two kids while living with a chronic illness. #ra #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #parenting #bestkidsever #grownup #success #mothering
Well, four doctors appointments this week turned into five. I was attacked by a curtain rod then fell this morning when I pulled open the curtains and received a laceration to the face that didn't clot in the space of a couple of hours so I went in. The main fears with immunodeficiency are difficulty healing, fighting infections, and never ending bruising. She sealed my wound with Dermabond and gave me antibiotics to be safe. Since I went so long without being treated, my healing powers were nil and I need as much as I can get right now!

Acu-pro tip๐Ÿ“In #TCM, Wei Qi is your body's natural defense system that circulates and protects against invading pathogens. This ancient concept is very similar to what is now recognized as immunity. Classical texts refer to the divergent channels as harmonizers for internal and external environment and are ideal for treating autoimmune conditions๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

I love to see @nehollywood2 making a 'mess' and covered in paint. Especially when I remember that there were times he couldn't even hold a paint brush because of rheumatoid arthritis. It is a beautiful, colorful mess! โค๏ธโœจโค๏ธโœจ

A little bit of light stretching to wake up my body.. I haven't done a normal yoga practice for more than 20 days.. I feel too exhausted and unmotivated and I'm making excuses all the time.. Plus my RA has kicked in again and my right wrist and left ankle are in quite a bit of pain because of too much walking and carrying trays and dishes at work..
But I feel like I might be ready to start working out again  slowly..

The Graham-Cassidy bill does not just, as Rand Paul suggested, โ€œtake Obamacare, replace it with Obamacare,โ€ฆ [and] let the states have a little more power in how [they] spend it.โ€ Graham-Cassidy reduces federal spending and block grants it. Graham-Cassidy caps Medicaid. Graham-Cassidy waives community rating and essential benefits. Graham-Cassidy isโ€”just like the previous ACA repeals beforeโ€” a death sentence. Not a โ€œboondoggleโ€ but an abomination. Itโ€™s a threat to the livelihood of millions of Americans, and to the financial wellbeing of millions more, as well as our education system and our bankrupt states, and I am tired of talking about it.
. 
Iโ€™m tired of Trump threatening republicans in the middle of the night to jam ill-conceived bills quickly and quietly through the senate.
. 
Iโ€™m tired of relying on the decisions of four senators I had no part in electing to โ€œdo the right thing.โ€
. 
Iโ€™m tired of thinking about it. Iโ€™m tired of worrying about it. Iโ€™m tired of explaining it. Iโ€™m tired of begging and Iโ€™m tired of fighting for my life.
. 
Hereโ€™s the thing, though. Iโ€™m used to being tired. I have lupusโ€”tired is all I know. And when I get tired, I donโ€™t get quiet. Exhaustion does not result in complacency. It solidifies commitment. I worry you underestimate the communities whose civil rights you attempt to strip. You can call us angry, but we see you. Right through you.
. 
And weโ€™re tired of you assuming weโ€™ll surrender.

Which parts of the body can lupus affect? Many people with active lupus feel poor in general and experience fever, weight loss and tiredness. People with lupus also develop specific problems when the immune system attacks a particular organ or area in the body.

These areas include:

THE SKIN: Some patients with lupus have a red rash over their cheeks and the bridge of their noses. Other skin problems include large red, circular rashes that can scar. Skin rashes usually are aggravated by sunlight.

THE JOINTS: Arthritis is very common in people with lupus. It may be a problem that lasts for only a few days, or one that is persistent.

THE KIDNEYS: Kidney involvement in people with lupus is potentially life-threatening. The earliest signs of kidney disease are apparent from a urinalysis and often are first suspected when lupus patients feel ill with arthritis, have a rash, fever and weight loss.

THE BLOOD: People with lupus may have dangerous reductions in the number of red blood cells, white blood cells or platelets, which are cells that help clot the blood. Many times, there are no symptoms when the blood is involved, but some clues can be fatigue, seious infections or easy bruising.

THE BRAIN: Involvement with the brain can cause confusion, depression, seizures and, rarely, strokes. Fortunately, brain involvement is rare.

THE HEART & LUNGS: Lupus can cause inflammation of the tissues that cover the heart and the lungs. Patients may develop chest pain, irregular heartbeat and accumulation of fluid around the lungs and heart.

Because lupus may affect several important organs and lead to serious complications, a multidisciplinary team approach is essential for timely diagnosis and proper treatment.

Kava Kava has Kavalactones, also known as kavapyrones. These chemicals work with the endocannabinoid system to help relax muscles and ease muscle tension 
by calming pain receptors. Kava creates a numbing sensation when applied topically, this fast acting effect can last for up to 3-5 hours. Kavidiol combines CBD (Cannabidiol) and Kavalactones to aid in relieving inflammation, muscle tension and calming nerve receptors which equals pain relief.  Kavidiol is not just another CBD product, it is a powerful combination of two all natural plant compounds that work synergisticly to help you fight pain and inflammation as well as aid the affected area to actually heal rather than just masking pain until the next application. #painrelief #nohigh #nosideeffects #jointpain #backpain #neckpain #nervepain #herniateddisc #arthritisrelief #osteoarthritis #rheumatoidarthritis #fybromyalgia #muscletension #muscleaches #musclespasms #musclerelaxer #musclecramps #neuropathicpain #healing #mosquitobites #inflammation #antiinflammatory #allnatural #medicine #medicalcannabis #medical #cbd #kava #nonaddictive #nopills

This is Alane:

My name is Alane and I am 24 (about to be 25). I have been diagnosed with... Ankylosing Spondylitis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, IBS, Migraines, Hypothyroidism and GERD... and that's only so far. I say "so far" because I have yet to get my health under control and I'm learning the hard way that the diagnosises of these diseases can get given/taken shockingly easy. In this photo, you're seeing me dressed up (soft top and jeans) with make up on, a genuine smile, and out in public for the first time in I can't even remember. I'm simply going out to eat with my family, but the fact I was even invited and felt mentally/physically well enough to go, put that smile on my face. Of course it had to be documented! โ˜บ๏ธ

So the doctor said the infection still hasn't cleared up ๐Ÿ˜” my first course of antibiotics (azithromycin) didn't end up working so he put me on a new course called clindamycin. It's a ten day course with a pill three times daily. I'm hoping I don't get any side effects from these, antibiotics are so hard on the body โ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธ #antibiotics #infection #bronchitis #rheumatoidarthritis #methotrexate #mtx #lowimmune #lowimmunesystem
#Spoonie Tip for Fibromyalgia: Last year, I woke up four times in the wee hours of the morning feeling as though somebody had stabbed me in the spine exactly where the shoulders and spine intersect. What follows is 30 minutes of writhing in pain. Nothing seems to work (no hot compress, no painkiller, no massage, nothing). I feel like my muscles have partially melted into my bones and then they are being electrocuted. After the 30 mins is over, the stabbing and electrocuted feeling stops but my finger tips to my shoulders, my neck, my upper back and spine hurt so bad that I hardly move for the next 5-6 days. It is agonising to say the least. .
.
.
It happened again this year which is when I got diagnosed with #fibromyalgia . The medicine I started for it (#amitriptyline ) helped a great deal but my spine and shoulders continued to hurt to a point where I really found it painful to lie down and hard to sleep. .
.
.
Some stellar beings then told me about a 'Cervical Pillow'. It has done wonders for my #chronicpain in the spine and neck and shoulders. It may look very uncomfortable but be rest assured it will do for your pain that no medicine will be able to. I have so many Indians writing to me via Personal Messaging asking for tips and advice. I urge you to open up and share your experiences so that we can all learn from each other. This pillow is available for โ‚น800/- at any good chemist. Please don't buy cheaper versions as they won't serve the purpose. #spoonie #spooniesupport #spoonieprobs #spoonieselfie #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunewarrior #cervical #pain #chronicpain #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicillness #fibromyalgiasucks #fibromyalgiaawareness #fibromyalgiasupport #fibromyalgiaisreal #fibromyalgiaproblems #fibromyalgiaproblems #paincandriveyoucrazy

Many don't even do that very successfully, and often the side effects are just as bad as the symptoms. (We know all too well!)๐Ÿ˜ญ Many doctors believe the root cause of these diseases to be poor #guthealth. Essentially what happens is that the colon becomes permeable (tiny holes), which then begins to slowly poison the body. Once this happens, the body tries to fight back and begins to attack itself (autoimmunity). This is where the unpredictable and possibly debilitating symptoms begin. Some people have problems with their muscles, others have nerve trouble, and still others have problems with their lungs, skin, mucous membranes, kidneys, and/or their eyes. You name it.

But there IS hope! *Plexus ๐Ÿ’– does not claim to cure, treat or heal any disease, but I can tell you there are countless testimonies from my friends and thousands of others all over the world that Plexus has most certainly made a difference in their health and alleviating their symptoms. And when we focus on improving our #guthealth, balancing our #bloodsugar, and decreasing #inflammation in our bodies, #AMAZING things can happen!

Still riding the high from yesterday's good news! I feel profoundly grateful for the ability and knowledge to take my health into my own hands and lovingly care for my body through food. Autoimmune disease is sometimes referred to as an "invisible illness" for the reason that often times people can look healthy on the outside but be extremely sick on the inside. It can also refer to the embarrassing and unpleasant symptoms and the shame and loneliness that comes with them. 
When I decided to start this project I knew I would be putting myself out there in a way I never have before. I have spent a large majority of my life feeling spiteful toward my illness and determined to not let it define me. This is initially why I turned to the food is medicine lifestyle. 
But over the last 20+ years I have gotten better and better at understanding and managing my illness through food, holistic practices and in turn, self love. 
Now more than ever I feel so proud of my body and what it has been able to overcome. Our bodies are incredible and given the right tools they have an innate knowledge of how to heal themselves. 
Over the next few days I am going to treat my body gently and take a step back from the traditional Paleo diet to the Autoimmune Protocol Paleo Diet. I will be making some of my favorite recipes from the cookbook pictured by @mickeytrescott 
I am going to restore the mucosal lining of my intestinal tract and restore the good bacteria balance that was damaged in the colonoscopy and from the biopsies. I will do this by eating nutrient dense and living gut-healthy foods like the snack I just made! 
@foodbymars 4 minute AIP English muffin topped with @anitasyogurt ,@blakehillpreserves Naked raspberry jam and an apple slice. โค๏ธ๐ŸŽโค๏ธ๐ŸŽโค๏ธ
I am choosing to love this body that I was given. To love this body that has been damaged but is healing. To love this body that has given me three children despite autoimmune disease. To love this body for the lessons it has taught me. To love this body bc it's the only one I've got.

That face you make when you #kickass at your #homeworkout even though you have #rheumatoidarthritis and find most #exercises challenging! 
No joke though. My right wrist doesn't bend far. For the planks and such I def used my forearms. And for the push-ups, I grabbed a damn chair and still got it done. If my arthritic fat ass can do this workout, so can you. What're you waiting for?

So I have been feeling awful with my Rheumatoid Disease. Medical Marijuana has helped me get off pain pills, methotrexate (chemo drug), all of my biologics meds. when i was on all that stuff, i made it from couch to bed and vice versa. 
I do not smoke to get high, do not usually drink, yes this last week I did. 
Feeling much better today. even took photo no filter. It's a great morning.

Day 49 - journey to ytt - I'm going to have to leave some people, habits and negative thoughts behind as I once again begin my yoga teacher training. YTT is as much a spiritual journey and process of self-study as it is learning to teach the asanas, alignment and yoga sequences. Dead weight must be cut off. I already feel lighter as I surround myself with positive people, good nutrition and other healthy physical practices and as I focus on the present moment. Good things are happening right now.

The most delicious curry, I had to learn how to make my own because any time I ordered it out it was much too spicy for my weak tastebuds ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ this delicious whole foods recipe is amazingly filling, aromatic and warming.

Paralyzed.
Major Back Surgery.
Rheumatoid Arthritis. 
Emotional/Binge Eater.
WAHM of 3 kids.
Death of family members.
Death of friends.
Morbidly Obese.
Broken Bones.
.

These right here are SOME of the realities I have faced over the last few years.  I can use them as excuses to NOT care for myself and make progress in my journey to badass...to give up or quit...or I can use them as FUEL to continue on this path I am on. Use them to transform into the Mother F*cking Phoenix I know I am!
.
.
The choice is YOURS and yours alone.

You can turn be consumed by chaos and let life pass you by...OR you can turn your tragedies into triumphs and transform the F*CK outta YOUR Tuesdays!

Whole 30....here we go! 
As I started researching and meal planning for the next month, I actually realized that many of my meals I normally eat are whole 30 compliant.....well minus all that cheese...rice...and wine. ๐Ÿ˜ณ
Going to make sure I eat breakfast the next 30 days.....and let go of those protein smoothies for a while.๐Ÿ˜ฌ .

At the Doctors again... been sick for 20 days now and my body just cannot fight this off. Last week the dr said I had bronchitis so he put me on a round of antibiotics which I felt helped a little bit but now it's coming back and the sore throat is back too. I've had bronchitis before and I know it lasted about a month but it never got worse like this in between. I might consider skipping my next methotrexate dose just to give my body a little bit of immune system to fight this off๐Ÿ˜… but we will have to see what the dr says. #rheumatoidarthritis #arthritis #methotrexate #mtx #autoimmunedisease #chronicillness #bronchitis #sick

Just a little reminder this Tuesday morning...#anxiety IS a liar and is so destructive to not only our mental but our physical health as well.

This is Caseys story:

#Homeschooling #momma, Casey, has this to say about her #RheumatoidArthritis #diagnosis. "Who of my friends are struggling with #autoimmune #disorders? ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ In April, I was blindsided with a diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis. After months of excruciating #joint #pain, blood tests showed my #inflammation levels at almost 900 times the normal limit. Seriously, who has #arthritis at the age of 35??! I eat good, I #exercise, I work on lowering stress... What? I dove head first into research on the link between gut health and auto immune disorders. 
The 2 pictures you see here are taken 3 months apart. You can literally see the inflammation in my face in the first one.  Ya'll, not only have I been 90 days without a flareup, but taking measures to #heal my #gut has cleared up an entire score of other issues as well. Gut health is so important! No more

Truth. These chronic illnesses have changed our entire path in life. It won't be the same as it was but that doesn't mean it's always terrible. There are happy moments. There are milestones. It's important to celebrate those. #chronicillness #chronicpain #fibromyalgia #rheumatoidarthritis #chronicmigraines #interstitialcystitis #chronicpainspouse
I hate having to make a post like this, but I'm out of options. I'm still unemployed after being diagnosed with RA, and I've been denied health insurance and disability. My RA is manageable if I have my medications. Sadly, I cannot afford my medications. I need to come up with $200 by the 26th of this month. If anyone would feel inclined to assist me, my PayPal is PhantomsVixen008@aol.com. EVERY penny goes towards my medications. Thanks in advance.

Who was a big brave girl in surgery this afternoon? Sort of me. I screamed and screamed during my 4 injections. I screamed MY SWEET LORD at my mum. Yes she said. I imagine it does hurt. "NO MY SWEET LORD GEORGE HARRISON RADIO". It's my mum and mines song. It came on the radio at just the right time. The pain was incredible,I had to be reinjected because I could feel the procedure at one point and I've got the anaesthetic to wear off yet (which last time involved more screaming,this time rolling around on my lounge floor).
.
Thank you to the best surgeon I've had yet. She made the world of difference โค๏ธ

The only thing I love more than being in an airplane flying, is riding the rails on a train. Enjoyed the Wine and Dine train ride a couple hours south of here. Met some great people from Ohio, Illinois and Indianapolis. 
Stayed at a lovely Bed & Breakfast. I haven't stayed at a B&B in a while. I forgot how comfortable and quaint they can be. Our host, Fred and Regina at the Winfield Inn in Jasper, were so awesome. 
Enjoyed the past nine days just relaxing and exploring my state. 
These are the only pics I took. Didn't even know where my phone was most of the time. Took a break from social media and all computers. 
Everyone needs a reboot every once in a while. ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Awesome to pop up in memories today. I just started new Weight Training Program JUST last night! 
Battling my joint damage from my RA certainly makes it a challenge gripping & staying low on weights. 
BUT I'm still doing it! I may cry. I may curse. But I got this $hhh !

Good morning #Spoonies ๐Ÿ’š Little Lacey wanted to express how much she loves you all! I hope you each have an amazing Tuesday! Today, focus on the little things that make you happy! Take a few deep breaths when things get stressful and remember this video of my silly cat to being you smiles. Remember, happiness changes your body's chemistry. With happiness, remission is more possible and healing is easier to reach! #kitty #xo #meow #autoimmunedisease #rheumatoidarthritis #hello #talkingcats #spoontheory #chronicillness #chronicallyill  #chronicpain #awesome #love #support #laughter #stressreliever
