Today it happened. My headache progressed into a migraine and I had to inject myself with my emergency medication. I'm feeling extremely disappointed. I had been doing so well. I guess we're back to toting around this case. 😔 • • • #chronicpain #spoonie #chronicmigraine #headaches #RMSF #rockymountainspottedfever #premed #futuremd #gradschool #studyhard #gradstudent #studygrind #futuresurgeon #womeninstem #nola #countrytocity #NewOrleans #swampcountry #nolaliving #nolalife

• After having a pretty bad morning, feeling so wobbly, weak and in so much pain that I felt faint. I couldn't even stand and the small amount of energy I did have was completely drained! In those 20 minutes (which felt never ending) I felt so helpless and scared I could barely breath. I knew it would eventually pass so I tried to keep myself calm and focused on my breathing which always helps me and Lola did her best to comfort me. I managed to get myself up and got myself to the kitchen in my wheelchair for a drink and some food. After resting on the sofa for afew hours my Sister came round which was just what I needed and turned this rubbish day around! Thankful for my big Sister and sloppy dog! . . #chronicillness #cfs #fibromyalgia #chronicillnesssucks #mecfs #spoonie #mydogisthebest #lolalilylab #annasroadtorecovery

I had an apointment with my Gastro yesterday and as you can see.. IM STARTING STELARA (Ustekinumab) THIS FRIDAY! It’s one of the newest drugs here in the UK to treat Crohn’s.. It also treats arthritis & psoriasis.. So I’m hoping to walk out of the hospital with silky smooth skin & joints that actually work 💁🏻😂 and fingers crossed I don’t end up having a reaction to it like I did to Remicade (Infliximab). The first treatment is through an IV infusion & then it’s injections! I’m pretty sure you can self administer them because they’re sub-cut injections.. So fingers crossed this will actually work! If this doesn’t work then it’s a long painful process to get me to London for Stem Cell Transplants 😧 But things are FINALLY looking up! If anyone has any info about Stelara (Ustekinumab) I would really love to hear people’s results/side effects to look out for etc! Rock onnnnn Stelara 🤘😝

What have you done to take care of you today? Today, I am having a rough day. So, I will try and do a facial or take a bath later. Taking care of myself is so much harder since having kids. • • • #autoimmune #autoimmumedisease #cel#celiacase #glutenfree #spoonie #chronicpain #celiac #chronicillness #invisibleillness #invisibledisease #staypositive #spoonielife #warrior #nocurenochoice #chronicillnessawareness #chronicallyill #chronicmigraine #spooniememe #spooniehumor #chronicallysick #chronicmigraines #chronicallychill #fibromyalgia #rawarrior #rheumatoidarthritis #depression #anxiety

I started drawing my ENDOtheLINE pictures to help distract me from the pain of Endometriosis.

Apparently it's #inv#invisibleillnessenessweek, but really, when you live with a chronic illness (or several in my case), that's every damn day. I figured it'd be a great time to talk a little bit about me & this ''lil dude. • • This is Apollo (@apollo_themutt), my two year old shep/boxer service dog. He's a rescue from a kill shelter in AZ that had way too many puppies, but as fate would have it, we met in CA during one of my worst weeks ever. • • My upper GI symptoms were so severe, I was vomiting six times a day. Lower GI was so bad, even Rx drugs couldn't help. • • My body was falling apart so bad, I had taken a leave of absence from law school. Basically I was a hot mess and felt like I'd hit rock bottom. • • It was spring 2016 and I'd gone with my mom to look at the shelter between dr appointments. This little guy (literally, he was so malnourished his hip bones stuck out) creeped up to me and licked my face. 20 minutes later I was filling out paperwork to adopt him. • • His name is from the Greek god of healing, which is fitting because we both needed a lot of that. • • While I'm no where near 100% symptom-free, I am back in law school and will *fingers crossed* be graduating next spring with this dude by my side. • • While this isn't our whole story about training and all the hoopla that comes with being a #servicedog owner, it's important to pause from time to time about progress made...this photo was taken today at a doctor appointment (which he routinely accompanies me to). What's your little victory of the day? Any progress on your own goals? • • • #invisibleillness #dysautonomia #motility #ptsd #disorder #ibs #servicedogsofig #boxer #rescue #adoptdontshop #mutt #puppies #puppiesofinstagram #igdaily #cute #bestoftheday #thursday #choosehappiness #hea#healthy #foodie #blog #blogger #health #happy #dog #bestfriend #lawschool #spoonie
