TBT…yes I, too was once 20, with tons of energy. Worked 12 hour days, had 4 horses & did them twice a day!!! Then I got married & had kids, but still worked full time, until an operation that went drastically wrong & I now have TWO hidden illnesses #vasovagalsyncope #lupus  However, I still do the best I can, with the resources I have available to me. Pictured…Princess advertising my tack shop, at a show & just enjoying a cuddle on the yard. Meeting a foal in the Lakes & my dad showing his pride, at Velvet & I winning another 1st place rosette 😊#alwayslovedhorses #dontjudgewhatyoudontknow #iwasonceyoungtoo #walkamileinmyshoes #sometimeswordscanhurt

Just a little Wednesday encouragement. ✨🌻 It's been an exhausting, but good, day for me. I saw a new #rheumatologist and I am very hopeful that he will be able to help us figure some things out! It's so refreshing to have a good appointment! Sadly, most of the time I leave appointments with so much frustration and so many unanswered questions! #goodappointment #faith #hope #believe #chronicpain #autoimmune #chronicallyill #dysautonomia #pots #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #tos #thoracicoutletsyndrome #crps #complexregionalpainsyndrome #occipitalneuralgia #vasovagalsyncope #mitralvalveprolapse #autoimmune #undiagnosedautoimmune #raynauds #spinalstenosis #arthritis #anxiety #ptsd #degenerativediscdisease #bursitis #tmj #multichemicalsensitivitydisorder #chronicpainprincess

In illness life contracts. If you've ever had a bad bout of the flu you know what I mean—the world beyond your water bag of a body becomes significantly less meaningful. The relative temperature of your pillow becomes significant. ⠀
⠀
Chronic illness carries a similar contraction ability. I have found that the most significant "little things" are those that make it possible to continue caring for my body. ⠀
⠀
Warm filtered water is particularly helpful to my body, so I have a filter pitcher and an electric kettle. ⠀
⠀
I have accounts with various food delivery services. ⠀
⠀
I have a code word that I can give to strangers/acquaintances when they've called my husband. That word means "come get me right now, it's bad" and if I don't give that code he knows I may be frightening the people but I'll recover and continue with the day's tasks. ⠀
⠀
I spend a lot of time in bed when I'm quite ill so I have bedding I love, and a breakfast tray that's well designed. ⠀
⠀
The list of creature comforts goes on, they have in common that they give healthful support to my body and also free up my, sometimes limited, brain space to focus on other aspects of my life or treatment. ⠀

I believe in using what works. If the drug cocktail prescribed by my cardiologist had worked I never would've left "western medicine" for an "alternative therapy". ⠀
⠀
I have tried A LOT of alternatives to cardiology. In a broad sense, the most effective thing has been bodywork, specifically craniosacral therapy, acupuncture, and Ayurveda massage (abhyanga and shirodhara). I've also learned that the high degree of sensitivity my body has requires that I work with practitioners who have many years' (e.g. decades') worth experience. ⠀

Five miles later, and the stress building up throughout my day is gone! 😊 
Playing my guitar and hanging out with my friends helps me relieve stress, but I find that taking a little time for myself to run each day had definitely made the biggest difference for me mentally and physically!

Deciding to pick up running has definitely been one of the best decisions I have made. It has helped me begin to take care of myself; I started eating healthier and drinking more water, and in that last few months I have had significantly fewer fainting spells and instead much more energy! I never have felt better in my entire life, and I never plan on going back. 🏃‍♀️😊

Rough day at the Allergist today. #allergytesting #vasovagalsyncope #stressedmama
This picture is so relatable.  On the surface I look absolutely healthy and normal, but behind the cover I struggle to keep it together most days. I suffer from random episodes of fainting, which I wouldn't even mind if that was all it was. These faints carry a lot of baggage around with them, in the form of dizzy spells, lack of energy, disturbed sleep, temporary vision loss and anxiety not to mention the bumps and bruises from the actual faints. Its so easy to judge others and forget that not all illnesses or disabilities are visable. Love those around you and never assume you know what goes on behind closed doors 💛 #invisibleillness #fainting #vasovagalsyncope #awareness

Today is the classic "where do you see yourself in five years?" ⠀
⠀
and, right at this very moment, I don't really "see" myself anymore. I seem to be in the middle of an inflection point. In mathematics an inflection point is when a line that was heading one way suddenly curves into a different (and previously unpredictable) curvature.  My life was following a semi-predictable path before, but now seems to have hit a stall and I don't know yet what direction it will go into. ⠀
⠀
In five years' time I will be, chronologically, five years older.  That's the most accurate I can currently say. ⠀

Failing that I might talk to the  doctor about it May be being chairi... #eds #dizzy #unknown #undiagnosed #fibro #fibrowarrior #spoonielife #zebra #vasovagalsyncope #lightheaded
In my spiritual tradition there is this concept of "tender mercies." A tender mercy is a moment of highly individualized blessing. It may be a blessing of strength, protection, guidance, kindness, support, assurance, etc. In some spiritual traditions these mercies appear from the Universe; some refer to the Great Divine; others to Spirit. I reference the Lord and Savior. ⠀
⠀
I work as an actress. I began training in school plays as a young teenager. Sometimes I would faint onstage. I often wondered if I ought to give up acting, since I have this condition; but, I felt impressed to keep going anyway. Gradually I noticed that my body had developed an odd ability. During a performance where I was ill I could make it through my scenes, then the moment I was offstage my body would collapse in unconsciousness only to awaken again in time for my next cue. There have been performances where I may have fainted more than four times offstage and then again at the end of the play. Yet I fulfilled my obligation as a performer. It is a miraculous occurrence, and one I cannot control. I view it as a tender mercy of the Lord. ⠀
⠀
The day I moved to the City my husband and I had stopped for breakfast. Nearby was a yoga studio. When I looked at the studio it was as though my entire body had just been flooded with a strong shaft of sunlight. I knew there was something there I needed. We eventually moved within walking distance of that studio. I started attending yoga classes, but I wasn't getting the sense that the classes were the point of that lit up feeling. Then, one day, I happened to sign up for craniosacral therapy from a woman who worked out of one of the studio's back rooms. Working with her my incidence of seizures went down dramatically. I could see how I'd been given a tender mercy of guidance. ⠀
⠀
So, one of my greatest realizations is that I receive tender mercies. ⠀

My ass may feel kicked and I'm laid up today from the pain getting worse along with bad nausea and more passing out late last night. But I'm going to keep on fighting this and raising awareness. I will keep getting more involved to push for a cure. We need a cure!

i've been getting a lot of negative comments about my hair since i got a buzz cut.
which, first of all- is not okay. why spread hate just because you don't agree with some else's decision?
secondly- i'm well aware it's not the most "flattering" or "feminine" style. but i'm sick. and i only have so much energy. right now i need a hairstyle that requires little to no attention. besides, it's my hair so you don't have to worry about it. #bekind #hairstyles #haircut #buzzcut #spoonie #chronicillness #invisibleillness #chronicpain #fibromyalga #fibro #livingwithfibromyalgia #amplifiedmusculoskeletalpainsyndrome #amps #livingwithamps #ehlersdanlossyndrome #eds #livingwitheds #connectivetissuedisease #vasovagalsyncope #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #pots #livingwithpots #widespreadpainsyndrome #regionalpainsyndrome #restlesslegsyndrome #notalldisabilitiesarevisible #chronicloveclub

As I said on day two of the #chronicillnesschallenge one of the things I've learned is how to separate my self-worth from how my body feels. ⠀
⠀
As a result I won't say things like "I feel bad" or "I feel unwell" instead I say that "My body hurts" or "My heart is unwell" or "I'm a bit incoherent as there's not enough oxygen in my brain right now" ⠀
⠀
In an emotional sense my feelings run the gamut from happy to weary. From frustrated to relieved. ⠀
⠀
I do get uncommonly giddy about "normal" illness: like, a few weeks ago I could barely walk because my muscles were so fatigued from activity—fitness people call it delayed-onset-muscle-fatigue—I was perennially in a good mood though, amused and delighted by the sensation of "normal person fatigue". Sure, I needed help navigating stairs, but I was rather thrilled it wasn't because of syncope. ⠀

He works hard for his dinner! @kongcompany wobbler helps keep Arrow sane. Between the ear infection and the dizzy mess, I can't give Arrow the physical exercise he needs tonight. And he has been working for over 12 hours today for me! 
What can a #servicedog #handler do? Mental stimulation and work for dinner!

Arrow has been carrying his favorite @kongcompany toy around all! You would think that he has been in play mode - but he knows when he is working and when he isn't, and he has been a super #servicedog. 
You can see him carrying it, along with leading and counterbalance. This is his newest task and he is rocking it!

Service dogs are working. 
They aren't "normal dogs" who get to visit and jump up and do whatever. They have trained hard and must concentrate and focus on their handler. 
If I am doing well, Arrow may visit for a very quick hello. But Arrow is with me for a purpose. I have been dizzy and wonky for a couple months and rely on him daily. Not just daily, but constantly. 
But don't feel bad for him. He gets to go everywhere and do everything. Including dog events, vacations, and Disney. 
He loves his job and takes it very seriously. And if we are going on a quick trip to the store, he wants to come. He bring his toys to pack for trips. He knows he is important. 
So when you see a service dog out, and they cannot visit with you. It is not about you. It is about them doing their job for their handler.

But don't feel bad for him. He gets to go everywhere and do everything. Including dog events, vacations, and Disney. He loves his job and takes it very seriously. And if we are going on a quick trip to the store, he wants to come. He bring his toys to pack for trips. He knows he is important. So when you see a service dog out, and they cannot visit with you. It is not about you. It is about them doing their job for their handler. #dreamdogz  #dreamk9  #dreamk9ranch  #dogtraining  #dogtrainer  #florida  #dog  #dogs  #belgianmalinois  #belgianshepherd  #neurocardiogenicsyncope  #vasovagalsyncope  #servicedogtrainingprogram  #servicedog  #servicedogs  @dreamdogz

In a blog post titled "The Case of the Dying Bunny" I tell the story of how I got a diagnosis. (here: https://buff.ly/2y3p53k)⠀
⠀
The briefest of explanations is this: I began by seeing a series of neurologists for my fainting. Months went by. I saw more doctors, took more tests. Then I began to have seizures and went to more neurologists. ⠀
⠀
Now, I’m not sure when the anvil dropped out of the sky to squash the neurologists, but at some point I convinced my Mother, or someone else did, that it all might have something to do with my heart. Enter cardiologist Dr. Hwang. We met him. We said hello. He glanced over the notes from the nurse and in a very heavy Chinese accent said, "she have neurocardiogenic syncope“.⠀
⠀
I did have a test; the torturous Tilt Table Test (post on that is here: https://buff.ly/2y31boL) but really I think it was just to ease our minds. The results were emphatically positive. I had received an accurate diagnosis. I was fourteen. ⠀

It's hard for some people to understand. When I have done my hair and makeup, dressed in something other than pjs, and have a smile on my face, I am still hurting exactly the same(sometimes more) than when my hair's up, no makeup, and wearing frumpy clothes. People don't understand that at all, because when you have the flu or another sickness you stay home until you're well! Chronic pain is so misunderstood and so mistaken. If only people could walk for a week, or an hour, in our lives they would understand so much more. #invisibleillness #doyouseemenow #chronicpainawarenessmonth #chronicpain #chronicillness #spoonie #dysautonomia #pots #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #tos #thoracicoutletsyndrome #crps #complexregionalpainsyndrome #occipitalneuralgia #vasovagalsyncope #mitralvalveprolapse #autoimmune #undiagnosedautoimmune #raynauds #spinalstenosis #arthritis #anxiety #ptsd #degenerativediscdisease #bursitis #tmj #multichemicalsensitivitydisorder #chronicpainprincess

When I was a teenager I read the works of Lurlene McDaniels. In her books, teenage protagonists were afflicted with a life-altering illness or event. Though I didn't recognize it at the time I was looking for a language of grieving and a path outward; at twelve my life was irrevocably altered by a complication of open-heart surgery. Something that happened then led to my syncope. My heart has always been cracked open; this sometimes makes me compassionate, sometimes an open wound. Perhaps one of the most significant ways my illness affected me is that I learned to separate my self-worth from how my body feels. ⠀
⠀
It is otherwise too extensive to say in what ways my illness has affected me. It's more accurate to say in what ways it hasn't: it has not affected my insatiable curiosity; nor my soaring ambition. It did not change my birth day; or birth order (I remain a Scorpio eldest daughter). I continue to have vivid dreams; and a love of dairy products. That is nearly the whole list. For me, my illness was, and remains, a life-altering event. ⠀

Call me Anne. 
I have a jumpy nervous system (the medical term is dysautonomia) and in my particular case it comes with the name "neurocardiogenic syncope" although the medical terminology has gone through a few changes since my diagnosis.  A syncopal episode is to faint from a lack of oxygen to the brain. So, I black out. A lot. It's been thousands of times by now. Some of the knowledge I've earned in the crucible of experience is shared on a blog. Link in profile. Hope it's helpful. (day one of the

Irma has arrived. The worst is yet to come, but for now we are doing fine. The power has flickered a few times and both dogs will come to work with me tonight. As long as the rain doesn't get too bad we will come home tonight, otherwise we can go to my parents or stay at work in the drs suite or conference room. Overnight bag is packed in case, Tonks the bird has extra food and water, and we are all set :) #servicedog #servicedogintraining #helperdog #workingdog #respectthevest #medicalequipmentintraining #notalldisabilitesarevisible #spoonie #chronicillness #fibromyalgia #raynauds #syncope #ibs #chronicfatigue #orthostatichypotension #vasovagalsyncope #neurocardiogenicsyncope #nightterrors #syncope #migraine #doingmyjob #fromsheltertohelper #dogsofinstagram #dog

Training with the walker for the first time. I don't have a hands free leash so I connected her traffic lead to the walker. It worked out really well! She quickly adapted to navigating with the walker and listened beautifully to my directional cues :) love how quickly she picks things up when I need her to! #servicedog #servicedogintraining #helperdog #workingdog #respectthevest #medicalequipmentintraining #notalldisabilitesarevisible #spoonie #chronicillness #fibromyalgia #raynauds #syncope #ibs #chronicfatigue #orthostatichypotension #vasovagalsyncope #neurocardiogenicsyncope #nightterrors #syncope #migraine #doingmyjob #fromsheltertohelper #dogsofinstagram #dog

What a trip to target tonight...kids running at us, parents pointing us out, people following us, people stopping to gawk at us, people filming us, and employees practically begging to pet the dogs and then talking crap when they think we can't hear them. Overall people were the worst I've ever experienced I think. But it was our first time out with the walker and Skylar did fantastic...I'll post videos later :) thanks to @muffin_derpypaws for toughing it out with us and making the trip bearable :) #servicedog #servicedogintraining #helperdog #workingdog #respectthevest #medicalequipmentintraining #notalldisabilitesarevisible #spoonie #chronicillness #fibromyalgia #raynauds #syncope #ibs #chronicfatigue #orthostatichypotension #vasovagalsyncope #neurocardiogenicsyncope #nightterrors #syncope #migraine #doingmyjob #fromsheltertohelper #dogsofinstagram #dog

Crissy had another vasovagal syncope this morning. She started to gag cough, just like the other two times. Got off the bed onto the floor and continued to cough then immediately fainted. Woke right back up and just like the other two times she stretched out her right paw and vocalized. After that she was totally fine. Always gives mom a scare though. #puffysuperstar #puffalump #cavalierkingcharlesspaniel #cavalierrescueusa #pnwspanielsquad #cavaliersofinstagram #seniordogs #seniordogsrule #ckcs #vasovagalsyncope

《Cat Care》
Toffee had to have a bath because she puked up a hairball, 🙀 and then, in true Clown Cat fashion, fell over into her own puke! 😿 She's had a post-puke fainting spell before and it's called vasovagal syncope, something that can happen to both dogs and cats, apparently. Poor kitty. 😓

So Wednesday night I landed myself in the ER by falling down some stairs, knocking the wind out of me by hitting my tailbone and spine and having what seems to be my first vasovagal episode. I have some back pains, a fractured tailbone, and every now and then it still hurts to take breaths. Needless to say I won't be working out this upcoming week but I REALLY hope this back pain goes away ASAP so I can take care of my body the way I want to 😥.

My $15 find today! Hard to tell but it's practically brand new and lavender! A walker has been a discussion my doctor and I have had and something that is going to help on days I run multiple errands.

I ran 18.43km from Aylsham to Whitwell Station through the Themelthorpe Loop on Marriot's Way. Found a friend #Tiki from #NorfolkRocks but left her where I found her as already packing a Camlebak of Active Root electrolyte drink. I know others don't need to carry as much to drink to stay hydrated. But since I am making a long comeback from a fainting disorder I have to keep hydrated. The fact that I can run and not faint is a miracle to me. Happy Run Day, everybody.
