It has been a hectic sort of week! I’m so tired, the kind of tired that’s in the bones...I woke up this morning tired, it’s reached that level where no mount of sleep touches the tired... found this meme and just had to share! This has happened to me one time. Just one, but it was the happiest moment of my spoonie-life 😂 🎗 🎗🎗 #CBD #cbdoil #nevergiveup #fightingformyhealth #doctors #cardiologist #hos#hospital #hea#healthy #spo#spoonie #YouTube #loopmonitor #hope #healthy #healthyeating #clean #hospital #weightloss #fibro #sick #fit #pcos #spooniememe #spoonieproblems #memes #fibromyalgia #Fibro #spoonie #pain #chronic #chronicpain #invisibleillnessawareness #mediband #tumour

Never judge a book by its cover? Then never judge a person by what you can or can't see. Life comes with many obstacles, illnesses and disabilities just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there. #dontjudge #invisibleillnessawareness #lowspoonwarning #takeabreak #rest #recharge #metime #takecontrolofyourlife #powerofpositivity #maketodaymarvellous #chronicallypositive #lovethelifeyoulive #fibromyalgia #fibrostrong #fibrowarrior #fibromitesunite #bordersfibrostrong #standstrong #dontgiveup

This picture is a reason in running every day for 365 days. I'm close to the end now. Years ago I was in a famous London department store and needed the loo...desperate. I was in a flare and was bleeding lots. I simply had to go. My disease is a disability and so I used the disabled toilet. When I came out there was a lady with her husband in a wheelchair and they told me off! 😱 They simply couldn't understand why someone who could walk would use a disabled toilet! I had to go, I had to go there and then. I couldn't wait and there was a long line for the ladies. (When your in a flare up it takes you immediately and the fear of not getting to the toilet is real people!). So these signs are important, it's also important to remember that if you see someone who appears "normal" using a disabled toilet...don't assume they are being a lazy line cutter. 💩🏃💩🏃 Didn't post last night, was so tired that I went to bed at half 8 with mouse. Me and mouse ran a mile and quarter before dinner. I love running with her. It's our time to chat and get out and active together. #ibd #crohns #col#colitis #toilettalk #poo#pootalk #poo #uc #crohnsandcolitisuk #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #disability #invisibleillnessawareness #invisibledisability #run #runforcharity #runner #runchat #ukrunchat #accessabletoilets

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

Saturday Morning Breakfast Goals 😍🙌🏼 Today I've got Gluten Free Oats, cooked in Almond Milk, then finished with a whisked Egg White for that extra fluffiness (is that a word?) All topped with my beloved Almond Butter, Coconut Yogurt, Blueberries and Raspberries 💜 Perfectly friendly for my little poorly gut! #low#lowfodmapfood #fodmapdiet #ibs #ibsdiet #invisibleillnessawareness #lowfodmap #porridgeporn #saturdaymornings
