Welcome! 😊💙I'm going to try and use this as a tool to keep my eating habits on track. 🍲 I've suffered with #chronicpain since I were 13, and been passed off as gynae related up to last year when I saw a new consultant. She then explained that the pain I was experiencing was my #bowel, in which I detected after years with also #ibs . With the rest of my long list of deficiencys nd problems, it was never thought that the #fatigue #b12deficiency #irondeficiency #irritablebowel #reynauds could all lead to one thing. I've had my colonoscopy, with that they took out 18 biopsies, and infected past so now awaiting results back. They said it wasn't typical of #chrons but not normal. So now I've decided to sort out the one thing I can control. As my #bingeeating habits are not going to help the situation. Follow my journey, and please keep me motivated! 🙋💪👊

As scleroderma awareness month comes to a close, I’d like to add some of my personal journeys I have had the pleasure to experience. Ten years ago, I was an active person involved with sports. Then one day I noticed my hands turning blue. A dark blue/black. I also started getting short of breath. I sought out my allergist, who sent me to a pulmonologist. A very long story short, after many doctors, I was diagnosed with having an autoimmune disease called scleroderma. It’s an autoimmune disease where your connective tissue hardens. There’s no cure, but there are medications to lessen the progress. The disease is fatal. The average survival rate is 10 years. It’s been 10 years now since being diagnosed, and I’d say I’m doing ok. Okay, relative to the big picture of the disease. I have family and friends, pets and plants. I am still able to help and lead my fellow human being. Life is good. #scleroderma #pulmonaryfibrosis #reynauds #gastroparesis #oxygen #inogen #lungdisease #portableoxygen #autoimmunedisease #happylife

Living with multiple #chronicillnesses can have a profound effect on our physical, mental, and emotional health. I felt like this song by Shawn Mendes really sums up life for those of us living with multiple illnesses. If you haven’t listened to this song, give it a go. The message, be it emotional or spiritual, is calling us to not give up. No matter how bad the pain or struggle is, you can always get help. #addisonsdisease #avascularnecrosis #butyoudontlooksick #chiari #colitis #dysautonomia #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #gerd #invisibleillness #mcad #mcas #mentalillness #nervepain #occipitalneuralgia #osteogenesisimperfecta #reynauds #spoonie #tmj #zebrastrong #inmyblood #shawnmendes

😉💪🏼👈🏼Saturday TRUE TALK! It's not about the talk, it's all about the walk. If you want something bad enough you will stop at nothing until you get it! It's time to PROVE IT! You're writing this chapter, make it inspirational. ❤The best part of this journey is empowering others to realize they have the same potential inside, they just need to believe in themselves and work hard for it. Convince your mind and you're there! Promise. Keep pushing, focus on positives. No backwards thinking, we are all experiencing setbacks... refuse to let them conquer you. I believe in you and celebrate your successes, the setbacks are also part of the process. Embrace them. You're remarkable. 😘 #6amsaturdaygrind #loveroflife #positivethinking #motivatedominate #aspiretoinspire #icaniwillimust #keepmoving #weightlosstransformation #weightlifting #girlswithmuscles #girlsthatlift #noexcuses #noplasticsurgeryallweights #notpumped #badlighting #livingwithRA #reynauds #whitefingers #smilethroughthepain

Subluxed my right wrist today whilst I was teaching, it was so LOUD my students all freaked out! . . It went like this .... Student: what happened?!?! Me: (casually) I subluxed my wrist. Students: you're saying that too casually and with a smile on your face Me: I know! Now carry on with practicing birthing babies 😂😂 . . Then my colleague bandaged it up (perks of sharing an office with nurses!), I carried on teaching and went to the gym! . . . At least I've got a new sarcastic t shirt!!! #silverlining . . .#eds #ehlersdanlos #nhs  #jointhypermobilitysyndrome #hypermobility #hypermobilitysyndrome #hypermobile  #zebrastrong #spoonie #medicalzebra #dysautonomia #ehlersdanlosawareness #chronicillness #chronicpain #myalgicencephalomyelitis #chronicfatigue #chronicfatiguesyndrome #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #spooniewarrior #disabled #disability #disabilityawareness #invisibleillness #butyoudontlooksick  #reynauds #disabodyposi #wheelchair #wheelchairaware
