Oh the LOVE! I love it! Magnesium through the skin is beneficial for everyone! We can actually raise our magnesium levels faster when using it topically. It bypasses the digestive process and gets into the body faster that taking an oral supplement. Our MAGIC magnesium body cream is saturated in pure magnesium chloride and can be applied all over the body.

Migraines are more than just a headache. Today’s post is about the chronic condition that affects 1/5 of women everywhere (and also wrecked my weekend).

Another load of blood done today hopefully that will be it for a while now. It makes such a difference having someone take your blood who can make you smile that also has such great compassion. I appreciate it so much when I come across it these days. Compassion, kindness and empathy is so important. I am so grateful when I come across people that have that kind of aura that literally lights up everywhere they go. My kinda people. 💚

I am sooooo over this insomnia, RLS and Fibro. I think I only slept about a TOTAL of 2 hours last night 😴...Ugggghhhh!!!! Medication didn't work too good 💊, legs hurt all night, stiff neck, shoulder pain 🤕...I used to love to lay down, cuddle under the covers and escape into a world of sleep 🛏. Now, the thought of laying down makes me cringe because I know it's going to hurt 😞. How long can one person go with hardly any sleep at night?? Been going on about 2 years so far here, lol 😲 ... Any thoughts or suggestions?? . . #insomnia #chronicfatigue #chronicinsomnia #chronicfatigueawareness #ptsd #bpdrecovery #ptsdrecovery #depression #anxiety #nightmares #flashbacks #chronicillness #chronicpain #fibro #fibromyalgia #fibropurple #rls #restlesslegsyndrome #rotatorcuffsurgery #cantsleep #calgontakemeaway #ifeellikeazombie #medications #iwanttosleep #iwantmylifeback #warrior #fighter #bagsundermyeyes #iwontgiveup

Sometimes I worry that the pain she carries daily will shrink her spirit. Fade our Clover right into the wall while her childhood races by to play without her. But today a few lines on a post it note reminded me that she is bigger and stronger than the hurting and that she is surrounded by people who see her. She might be small, but she's strong. . . . . . #childhooddownunder #photographer_stories #makeportraits #invisibleillness #chronicpain #olympusinspired #neverstopthejourney #thisisnine #cameramama

|possible trigger warning⚠️| I suffer with depression. Many different things feed into my depression. Sometimes my depression is as big as a small fish in the ocean and other times it’s the entire ocean. I go from day to day but from the outside no-one would be able to tell the difference from a good and a bad day. Depression is invisible to everyone else but to me it’s like a shadow, always following me and waiting for the perfect moment to show its ugly face. Depression kills, there has been times where it’s tried to kill me, it tells me that I’m not good enough and that everyone would be better of without me. In the end it’s a reminder to myself of how much of a fighter I am. I’m still here and I’m still fighting that daily battle. I’m winning that daily battle! 💪🏻. I want all of you to know you’re not alone and I’m always here. It can sometimes feel like a vicious circle between our chronic illnesses and our mental health. Sending you all some hugs 🤗 💖. . . #endosister #endostrong #endowarrior #endometriosis #endometriosiswarrior #endometriosisawareness #endopain #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #chronicallyill #spoonie #spooniesister #spooniestrong #spooniewarrior #invisibleillness #butyoudontlooksick #mentalillness #mentallyill #mentalhealth #anxiety #depression #ptsd #fightlikeagirl #posttraumaticstressdisorder #oneinten #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport

I’m SO excited to share that next year if my health continues to improve over the next 9 months I’m going to be starting a nutrition course under the College of Naturopathic Medicine to become a qualified nutritionist 🙋🏼💁🏼 Once I have my accreditation then I will be setting up my own clinic to treat people with Lyme Disease / CFS / ME / Fibromyalgia / POTS and multiple other chronic illnesses and help people who want to lead a healthier lifestyle and prevent chronic illness in the future 🙏🏼✨ I’ll share more details about when and where I’ll be starting it soon 😊 Thanks to @bekz24 at @hellohealing for being my inspiration 💕 and @michaellaskitchen @healandbloom @juleykaaa @happyhealthyems for helping me figure this out and realise I can actually achieve my dreams of making sure others don’t have to go through what I’ve been through 🙏🏼✨ Before I got really sick I used to work in fashion and never thought I would work in health so it’s strange how life makes changes for you and takes you down different paths 💕💖 It wasn’t long ago that I couldn’t see my future and where I was heading it was just a dark fog of confusion 😂 but now I can see it so clearly 😍❤️

In his 2015 State of the Union, President Obama announced the Precision Medicine Initiative — a massive research project designed to gain more insight into how we live with and treat various diseases. Last year, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) changed the initiative’s name to the warmer, fuzzier, All of Us, and opened enrollment in hopes of achieving its goal of gaining anonymous health information from one million Americans. At the moment, the number of involved citizens is far more modest, but the department is kicking things into high gear by purchasing up to 10,000 Fitbit devices for participants. The company is the first wearable maker to get the green light from the NIH for the project, due in part to its compatibility with the two major mobile operating systems and the fact that its devices last several days on a charge — making them more ideal for on-going fitness and sleep tracking. Participants will get to choose from two of Fitbit’s most popular devices, the Charge 2and Alta HR. “Lifestyle information is critical to this — sleep, heart rate information, physical activity, those are all essential elements,” Fitbit Health Solutions General Manager Adam Pellegrini told TechCrunch ahead of the announcement. “We will be able to give a real sample of energy levels, how people are sleeping, their walking — those type of things. We’re getting that information as people live their normal lives.” #spoonie #disability #invisibleillness #chronicpain #chronicillness #fitbit #obama #trump #obamacare #medicare #medicaid #dr #doctor #medschool #medstudent

Back when I made an effort to get dressed and put on some make up... 😅 These days I barely have the motivation to pick up a hair brush. Everyday is constantly draining. On the plus side, I’m gradually starting to get my appetite back 👌🏼💚

Snow blanketed the cities below us as we flew from Newark to Detroit for the day. As our plane climbed higher, I thought, this is the first time I’m not afraid to be in the air. I stared out the window and thought about what I could add to the discussion: “What every American needs to know about autoimmune disease.” I’m an example of the damage diseases can do and how to live with it, I thought. I had a procedure 3 days ago and got to the airport on time with no sleep. I can deliver a message of perseverance. Before we got to the AARDA seminar, United Airlines sent a text informing us our flight home was cancelled. We had no hotel and I wasn’t sure I could afford an overnight stay. My “extra money” was allocated to filling stockings for the homeless. The text combined with pain in my spine/legs after walking through two airports and taking items on and off while standing without my cane at security checkpoints made me cry. I exclaimed, “I want to go home.” My fiancé’ replied, “we came all this way for you to speak and sell some books; that’s what you’re going to do.” When we walked into the seminar, people were listening to a string of doctors. “They’ve gotten medical information, I need to speak from the heart.” I talked about misdiagnosis, not appearing sick, and the financial toll, fear and depression tied to living with a chronic illness. Then, I said “don’t give up, advocate for your health, listen to your body, seek out support and information, and take joy in small things.” At the end of my q&a, a woman said, “God sent you here to save a life. I didn’t want to keep going but you gave me hope.” As she teared up, she handed me a note that said: “I have instant respect, love and admiration for you. God bless you.”” Her sentiment was echoed by other women. By the time the sun set, my fiancé and I headed to Chicago for a flight to NJ. During our 4 hour layover, my fiancé told a woman about my speech. She shared her son-In-law’s battle with lupus. She concluded that he was grateful to be alive. I thought, I feel the same way. #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #chronicillness #chronicpain #igg4 4 #lupus #disability #detroit #newark #spoonie

Why we EDSers call ourselves Zebras in case you were wondering. . . Zebra is medical slang for arriving at a less usual diagnosis when a more commonplace explanation is initially considered more likely. It is shorthand for the phrase coined in the late 1940s by Dr.Woodward who instructed his medical students "When you hear hoofbeats, think of horses not zebras". Since horses are common in Maryland while zebras are relatively rare, logically one could confidently guess that an animal making hoofbeats is probably a horse. By 1960, the aphorism was widely known in medical circles. . . #zeb#zebraclub #zebrastrong #spoonie #ehlersdanlossyndrome #HEDS #EDSIII #ehlersdanlossyndromeawareness #hypermobilitysyndrome #chronicillnesswarrior #ChronicPain #genetics #zebra #zoestribe
