Tonight reminded me how much I miss him as my service dog. My mom told me that when they heard me fall that Judah immediately jumped up and watched me the entire time I was on the ground while he was still inside looking threw the window. Jericho and Kinslei went back on the couch as if nothing happened. Except for Isaac as well. If Judah’s anxiety wasn’t so bad anymore along with his anal gland issues; he’d still be my full time service dog. I miss our working days so much. His eyes never ever left my side and once again tonight he proved it as mentioned. We were a great team. I wish I could cure his anxiety and know a medicine where his anal glands wouldn’t suddenly express randomly, especially if I am in an appointment. Idk. Maybe it’s something I need to think long and hard on again. Go back in some training or at least a consult and see what the odds are. He knows when it’s “work time” and “off work/free time.” He knows when to still medical alert but most of all; eyes always on me. #servicedog #retiredservicedog #medicalalertdog #imissourworkingdays #servicedogdays #hestillkeepshiseyesonme #eyesalwaysonme #eyesonme #boxerservicedog #ilovemyboxer #badnight #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicpain #chronicpainsucks #ehl#ehlersdanlosrome #ehlersdanlos #hypermobility #hypermobilitysyndrome #instability #weakness #imissthesedays #4ye#4yearsagoy #4yearsago

Nice day for a run 😂. Even my undies were soaked! Well, at least I had the park to myself, until Mr Tech Waterproofs appeared just as I was doing this video lol. Even the dog was looking fed up by the end! 3.2 miles and a weird new kind of sore foot 😐 #5K #c25k #spoonierunner #hypermobilitysyndrome #rainyday #downpour #runningwithmydog #schnauzer #noexcuses #noexcusemom

Had some 'me' time today, getting my positivity and mental wellbeing in check. Yoga is something I always like doing to help stretch my muscles, ligaments and nerves and helps support my thinking. Would definitely recommend yoga to anyone with chronic pain or condition as it's a great place to start to safety get your bodyoving again. . . . . . . . . . . . . #fibro #hypermobilitysyndrome #chronicpain #yoga #downwarddog #exercise #stretching #healthylifestyle #yogamat #activeliving #activewear #workforit #gainingmuscle #gettingstronger

Heading off to a snake show that I've organized today, stressed out as anything because I feel like I'm forgetting important things, and stressed that we only have an hour to setup 🙈🙈 but oh well, I made a commitment so it doesn't matter how exhausted I am... #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicallyill #invisibleillness #cro#crohnsase #crohns #autoimmunedisease #hypermobilitysyndrome #hypermobile #jointpain #tired #makeupismagic #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniestrong #selfie

October is Dysautonomia Awareness Month. • Dysautonomia is an umbrella term used to describe several different medical conditions that cause a malfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System. The Autonomic Nervous System controls the "automatic" functions of the body that we do not consciously think about, such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, temperature control etc. • There are several different forms of dysautonomia, I have Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTS). Symptoms can be very debilitating, ranging from mild to severe & varying each day. * Dizziness or light-headedness. * Fainting or blackouts. * Heart palpitations. * Headaches. * Tiredness & weakness. * Brain fog. * Shakiness/tremors. * Shortness of breath. * Chest pain. * Excessive or reduced sweating. * Gut problems, nausea, pain, IBS etc. * Poor sleep, insomnia. * Visual problems, light sensitivity, blurred or tunnel vision. • From the age of one I fainted, I didn’t grow out of it like doctors said I would & my symptoms got considerably worse 3 1/2 years ago. After having a tilt table test 2 years ago my consultant diagnosed me with PoTS & since then I have been on medication to try to help my symptoms. • Last summer was really bad for me, I was often blacking out & fainting whilst laying down in my bed along with all my other symptoms...the GP I saw put in down to the weather being warm 🤦🏼‍♀️ My consultant was more concerned and had me in hospital for observation & got me started on another medication. This has helped & this last year my PoTS symptoms have been quite well balanced. I still get worse days/weeks & I definitely have my crashes/episodes...this week I’ve crashed twice at home & I had an unexpected one in Waitrose 🙄 It keeps me on my toes! I always have my trusty water bottle with me 😉 I probably drink 5-8 litres a day & crave a weird amount of salt 💦 • Dysautonomia is not rare. Over 70 million people worldwide live with various forms of dysautonomia. Anyone can be impacted. There is no complete cure. I am posting this to raise awareness for “the most common medical condition you have never heard of”. • #dysautonomia #dysautonomiaawareness #dysautonomiaawarenessmonth
