Leftovers from last night. Sweet potato cakes with feta and sage. Coleslaw and black beans with tomatoes, spring onion and mint. Body not too bad, for my body that is... Day 658 since I was told I needed urgent surgery, day 32 since that surgery was cancelled, and still not a peep from them. No apology. No date. No nothing. #fuckendo and #savetheNHS

A lot of people are concerned about me. They are concerned I am 100% mentally ill and not actually sick with anything else but mental illness. Aw thank for your concern. You guys are so sweet. NOT!!! The amount of time these people spend on my YouTube channel is mind blowing. It’s like they never had a cold for instance and felt better for several hours or even a day and then got sick again for longer. Well guess what buttheads that happens with chronic illness and terminal illness. One moment you feel bed ridden and seeing doctors left and right and the next you are bright eyed and bushy tailed. Well, last night I was crying so hard I had creamy stuff coming from my eyes. I was in so much body pain. I was up at 3am putting KT tape on my hand and Elbows and using lidocaine. I took half Percocet and nothing!!! Hey did you know that when you find the right medication it makes you feel better? Did you know people seek medication with doctors to help feel better? Well let me tell you this...... my black ass feels better. And I am not scared to show the world that medicine and smiles can make a world of difference. Since age 13 I have had problems with my cervix and knees. I spent endless embarrassing hours on the floor screaming in high school waiting for ambulance to save me. By age 24 I had knee construction and a hysterectomy and another partial not even a year later. And guess what I felt better for several years until I got sick. And it repeats over and over. 3 years ago I was stuck in the hospital not able to walk. Nurses walked and helped me up to pee. 1 year ago I was living at mayo pretty much because I was there 5 days straight for months. Now, we have found the right medication. And I am doing great. This won’t last bit while I feel like this I will take advantage. I AM SICK BUT I DON’T LOOK IT!! Get over it. Now go live your life. Because I know I am. Because one day these medications or some of them will stop working correctly and I’ll have to start from scratch. We live once and I will always live as if today is my last day. Peace✌🏽 . . . #chronicillness #invisibledisability #disability #disabled #restlesslegsyndrome #awareness #raredisease

I DID IT! I GOT UP, HAD A WASH AND GOT INTO FRESH PYJAMAS - yes, I did all that just to get back into bed. With my ovaries suspended I am doubled over in pain and can't stand up right... having your ovaries stitched to your stomach is a bit of a sticky situation! 🌻 I'm learning to celebrate every small victory and using that as a positive... what small victory are you going to celebrate? . . . . . . #endostrong #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicallyill #endowarrior #endopain #spooniesister #spooniestrong #spoonie  #chronicpainwarrior #invisibleillness #butyoudontlooksick #mentalhealth #anxiety #love #quote #picoftheday #mentalhealthsupport #selfie #mentalhealthawareness #depression #endowarrior #follow #endosisters #adenomyosisawareness #adenomyosis #invisibleillawareness

Helping your dog work through and handle stress is key to building confidence in your relationship. And you can’t help your dog work though stress if you consistently shield your dog from things that scare them. It’s OKAY to let your dog experience some stress! Just give them the coping skills to process it. —— Day 5 of our #100daysofdogtraining was a Home-Depot outing. Boo didn’t even bat an eye jumping into the showers and tubs, sitting on the wood piles, or holding downs in the kitchen displays (see our stories for those). But the moving carts that made loud noises when she got on them? Those definitely stressed her out. I could have just walked away (and there is a time and a place for that), but in this instance I knew she could work through it, so I made her handle it. I used a combination of leash pressure, food rewards, and extensive verbal praise to help her process this “scary” event. By the end she was getting on and off by herself. Did she love it? No, but now she knows she can handle it and that I won’t ask anything of her that she can’t work through. We’ll keep working around these carts until she happily jumps right on and let’s me push her around the store. This is great prep for rides at Disney! :)

I’ve decided to start a new theme for my posts because honestly I really hate how messy my feed looks so bear with me lmao . . . Anyways... I’m due back at work in just over a weeks time and my anxiety is through the roof at the thought of going back. Don’t ask me why because I can’t tell you. The thought of returning to work makes me feel sick with nerves, I’m terrified and I have no reason to be. Not to mention my leg is yet again on one. I took my niece to the park today with my family and I have a knee the size of a bowling ball. God knows how I’m going to cope with an 8 hour day, 5 days a week at work but we’ll cross that bridge when it comes to it. . . I recently had a conversation with my mum about my arthritis and the first thing she said was “aren’t you embarrassed?” And my first instinct was of course to become defensive, it isn’t the first time somebody’s asked a question like that. I asked what I had to be embarrassed about and she said “you’re nineteen years old with a stick and knee supports don’t you get embarrassed when people stare at you?” . . The answer is no. I’m not embarrassed and why should I be? Yes I might be young but I’m putting my health first. I’m ensuring that I’m able to cope with my chronic illnesses the best that I can and if that makes me look strange or makes people stare then so be it. . . Sometimes the best thing to do is ignore those people around you no matter who they are and put YOURSELF first. I don’t care if people think it’s embarrassing because at the end of the day it’s MY body and MY responsibility to take care of it and make sure that it’s okay. #chronicillness #chronicpain #rheumatoidarthritis #rheumatoidarthritiswarrior #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicfatigue #chronicfatiguefighter #chronicallyill

I've had this for dinner two nights in a row. It's the weirdest combination: Quorn cocktail sausages, potato salad, ritz crackers, houmous and grapes. I don't know what possessed me to put this combination of food on a plate but it's bloody delicious. Topiramate has completely changed the type of food I want to eat. I don't really want chocolate anymore and I used to eat it at least twice a day. I want salty food but not necessarily of the junk food variety. And I've found myself not enjoying meat. Hence random meals like this one. #chronicmigraine #migraine #migraineur #invisibleillness #seizuredisorder #seizures #epilepsy #chronicillness #nospoons #notjustaheadache #topiramate #topamax
