Wednesday Wisdom  I highly recommend the below books if you are living with OCD!
.
.
.  PURE by Rose Bretécher is a brave memoir about her life with intrusive sexual thoughts, her obsessive questioning of her identity, and her compulsive search for an answer. .
.
.
 The Imp of the Mind by Dr. Lee Baer explores obsessive “bad” aka taboo thoughts and how to recognize the crucial difference between harmless and dangerous bad thoughts. .
.
.
 The Happiness Trap presents techniques and insights of ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). It’s incredibly helpful in helping you handle painful feelings and thoughts more effectively: thoughts are nothing more than words. They may or may not be true. .
.
.
 Getting Control, also by Dr. Lee Baer, is great for both OCD sufferers and the families of OCD sufferers.

Telling myself all the Southern California positive vibes stuff. My adrenal glands kicked my ass today.  Here’s me with a unicorn piñata on my head at my little cousin’s birthday party last month. I was pretty worn out that day too but you’d never know it from looking at me.

This week has been difficult for motivation, especially today. I’m so exhausted that I struggled to push myself through my tasks at work. It’s hard to come home so utterly defeated by your body only to have to put on a brave face for your little one. BUT this does NOT mean I give up. I slow down, yes, but I also forge ahead to be healthy and happy. Here’s to a bath after a slow walk. I’m looking forward to some well-deserved relaxation after a tough day. Treat yo self!  .

 to all the ladies, 
i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful before i’ve called them intelligent or brave. i am sorry i made it sound as though something as simple as what you’re born with is all you have to be proud of when you have broken mountains with your wit. from now on i will say things like you are resilient, or you are extraordinary. not because i don’t think you’re beautiful but because i need you to know you are MORE than that. -rupi kaur

needed this for me, and needed it for you. a reminder that you are MORE

*DAY 12: HOW HAS YOUR ILLNESS MADE YOU A WARRIOR?*
To be honest, I don't feel much like a warrior most days. Usually I feel like I barely make it through each day. But I have been given a platform with which to share my struggles and successes and that's been a blessing. I've also found some amazing friends who say I inspire them, while being amazingly inspired by them. I guess I'm a warrior in that I don't give up. I can't. Sometimes I want to, but that's not how I want to live my life. My life is definitely not how I pictured it would be, but I want to love life and live each day to the fullest. Sometimes just getting out of bed is the best thing I do in a day, but I always do something. I never want to quit trying and that makes me a warrior!

@just_live89 Keep it up 😀

Life seems to get especially crazy around the holidays. Messy house, busy schedule, it's our busy season in the Pediatric ER and we're adjusting to having a new pup in the home! One thing that has made it all easier is my new t:slim X2 pump. See those red bars on the screen? Those are times my pump automatically turned my insulin off to prevent my blood sugar from going low. Most of this time I was in patient rooms, starting IVs and helping with procedures. I would have probably gone low during or after wards, or had to take a break for a snack. It's pretty amazing to me that this technology exists, making at least one part of life and living with diabetes a little bit easier! .

@stephaniebernau That’s awesome!

@el_bow_ Omg I want it

Today officially marks two months since my surgery! 
This picture reminds me how far I have come since then, but days like today also remind me what a long way I still have to go. 
Also not sure how the past 8 weeks have simultaneously felt like the longest and the quickest of my life haha! I’m gonna just attribute that to the drugs . The minimum time frame I was given to heal was 3-4 months, so I’ll wait another few weeks before giving you all a full update on my progress. Things are still pretty rough in all aspects right now, but I am hoping I will turn a corner soon. 
Sending lots of love to anyone in the midst of their recovery, at whatever stage that may be. This shit is rough and so, so unpredictable. I don’t think you can ever be prepared for this roller coaster. You truly just have to jump on and take the ride, one day at a time.

Went to see an optometrist for the first time in like 4 years today! He was super nice, but told me I need to wear glasses 24/7 now (I used to only need them for reading) & that I should have been wearing glasses for a *while* now haha.
.
.
So I haven't worn glasses in years, and my insurance doesn't pay for them now... Does anyone have any recommendations for affordable glasses online? I'm on a tight budget, but I'm really hoping that this will help reduce my daily headaches! Even marginal relief would mean the world to me! 
.
.
Also sorry I haven't been posting a lot lately.. There just isn't much to update on! I'm still playing the waiting game with several doctor's offices. I'm really hoping that we can find an infectious disease doctor soon.  I keep getting told that there are no specialists within my network, but?? I still need to be seen. So here's hoping they provide an option soon!

New blog post! This guest post by @merriman_lucy is part of a series on how to assist in a mental health crisis, titled, How to Lend a Hand in a Mental Health Crisis Part 1: Enlisting the Help of a Crisis Hotline
.
.
.
Text reads: The decision to call in wasn’t easy; like many people, I was afraid I’d be judged-- that my thoughts were too extreme, my issues weren’t serious enough, or that I’d put myself in a vulnerable position only to have an outsider confirm that my problems are genuinely unresolvable. But, I felt I had to tell someone, and laying everything out in front of a stranger seemed easier than telling anyone I knew in real life. .

@hey_its_just_dre L love it!

earlier today, I said I was gunna die from eating Homemade Taqueria but it’d be worth it...my current level of stomach upset has determined that was a lie
my reflux has been non stop since I legit started eating my food around 12:30 this afternoon. the fact that I ran out of Zantac and my insurance won’t cover it anymore doesn’t help the situation any either
the biggest problem is that I CRAVE salt so bad even though I’m not supposed to have it because of my kidney stones...anyone have any insight on that?
I cannot wait to see my surgeon in a few weeks and book my damn surgery, I feel just as poorly as I did before I had it done the first time

@the.good.vibes.girl 👏🏼 Awesome post my friend! :) keep spreading those good vibes, your insta is on fire with positivity! You’re inspiring more people than you’ll ever know. Keep it up! Hope you’re having an awesome day :)

@abbyinwonderland114 @the.good.vibes.girl Awww thank you so much!!!! It really means a lot 😊😁

Piper: Surgery was a success! It went really well and after having some issues afterwards,  my girl was finally moved to her own room in the hospital just now! After surgery when switching from being intubated to her bipap machine the surgeon found out my girl actually doesn’t breath at all by herself! This is the ultimate proof that this surgery was crucial for my girl and her congenital central hypoventilation syndrome(Ondine’s curse). Now we have all the proof that we could ever need for the insurance company. The surgeon said that my girl’s case was actually worse than anyone knew! After getting out of surgery my girl’s blood sugar plummeted for hours, but is finally back. She is metabolizing the pain meds too fast, but everyone has been amazing at working their hardest to keep her comfortable! My girl’s sister was so thoughtful and brought her macaroons, which my girl has been sharing with all the phenomenal nurses and doctors here! We are so thankful for everyone’s messages, support, prayers, good vibes, and love! The plan is for my girl to try to start tolerating her diaphragm pacemaker tonight and learn more about it tomorrow! #servicepuppiper #opietheservicedog #vizslapuppy #wirehairedvizsla #congenitalcentralhypoventilationsyndrome #diaphragmpacemaker

Hi friends. Just a few things I need to get off my chest, feel free to continue scrolling.
.
I started this instagram because I was struggling so badly with endo that I was contemplating whether I really wanted to live the rest of my life this way. I was shutting off from the people & things that I loved because I was sick of having no one who knew what it was like to be like me.
.
I am not here to pretend I’m a gynaecologist, give medical advice, or save the world. This is purely a safe place for me to vent through writing when I feel like I don’t have the words or the courage to actually talk. This is an outlet for me that helps me to survive.
.
While I may come across as a confident b*tch sometimes, I’m a very shy & over sensitive creature who takes everything to heart. Being a sarcastic sass queen is what helps me get through another day of feeling broken & alone. I don’t eat dairy, I do yoga, burn oils, exercise & live a VERY healthy life style. But when you’ve had a lifetime of peoples insensitive comments like ‘drinking out of plastic bottles is why you have endo’… I am going to have a laugh & post the odd meme or ten like the sensitive yet sassy queen that I am because if I don’t laugh, I will cry…like ALL the time. I mean, if anyone deserves to take the piss about their illness, it’s the people who live with it every f*cking day.
.
This sisterhood has had a positive effect on my mental health so far, & I wish to keep it that way. Please be mindful that a lot of people in this spoonie fam are people who are struggling. If you don’t like the content, please remember that you can simply give a little unfollow without having to bring someone down. You can’t judge a person by their social media feeds as there is a whole lot more layers to a human being than what they post…
.
In the words of Ringo Starr… “peace & love”

Year number 2, twice as nice! December 6-12 has been Burger Week here in Monterey County, featuring local restaurants. Last year I ate a Beast Burger at the Monterey Cookhouse. It was exciting because it was my first big meal from a restaurant since having my colon removed. It was very delicious and filling, but also a milestone because I was able to eat it without any issues, marking the first time I'd been able to eat out, anything I wanted, in about 10 years!! Since I've been pushing the limits of eating with an ostomy since then, I decided to eat 2 this year! At the burger week 50% off special, they didn't disappoint! #ibd #inflammatoryboweldisease #butyoudontlooksick #crohns #invisibleillness #autoimmunedisease #ulcerativecolitis #ileostomy #ostomylife #ostomybag #ostomates #colostomy #foodies #eating #burgers #cheatmeal #ilovefood #bagvsfood #micflare #mcwburgerweek

Last weekend Remi and I had a photo session with our photographer friend Rebekka @rebekka_salvadge_photography. I wanted our shoot to capture Remi working, the bond we have, and raise awareness for service dog teams. The result was a lovely bunch of photos, and I’ll slowly share them over the coming weeks. Remi was the star of the show! We took photos of him working and a few casual as well. I can’t wait to share them with you!  🦓 #servicedog #assistancedog #mobilitydog #workingdog #medicalalert #ehlersdanlos #psychiatricservicedog #dysautonomia #servicedogsofinstagram #dogs #spoo #spoodlesofig #tasktrained #servicespoo #dogsofinsta #ehlersdanlossyndrome #madeintexasassistancedog #spoonie #invisibleillness #POTS #chronicillness #ehlersdanlossyndrome #dogs #mustloveremi #servicedogteam #poodle #standardpoodle #dog #upstatenyphotography #upstatenyphotographer #hudsonvalley

@platypus_custard I am so sorry to hear 💔

@lillalokalen ❤️

Well folks, the life of a person dealing with chronic illness is never boring, I’ll tell ya that! It’s so hard to stay positive all the time when it feels like you’re getting hit over and over with something new that’s wrong with you. You get one thing under control, only to have another thing flare up. .

I’ve been doing really well on Cromolyn. It’s made a huge difference with my MCAS symptoms. My anxiety has also decreased significantly! But getting to this point wasn’t easy. It was a long stressful road of trial and error. Different ways of eating, several different medications, and emotional ups and downs. .

Today I woke up and couldn’t see well out of my right eye. There’s a huge dark dot and the world looks like an hour glass shape. Door ways and straight lines are curved. I panicked and went to my Ophthalmologist to be told I had something called Central Serous Chorioretinopathy. .

Central serous chorioretinopathy is when fluid builds up under the retina. This can distort vision. The fluid leakage comes from a layer of tissue under the retina, called the choroid. There is another layer of cells called the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). When the RPE doesn’t work as it should, fluid builds up under the RPE. As a result, a small detachment forms under the retina, causing vision to become distorted.
.

I’m being sent to a specialist first thing in the morning for further testing and a neurologist ASAP, to rule out  the possibility of something more serious. The good news is, it’s treatable. But I may have to see the world this way for a few months. The crazy thing is, this is usually a condition that is seen in men with high stress jobs or people who have been on long term steroid therapy. I have been on steroids off and on my whole life, and we all know how stressful it is to live every day with chronic illness. .

It’s crazy to know that stress can actually contribute to something like losing your sight. I guess I’m an over achiever when it comes to this rare stuff?  But I will remain positive because as a chronic illness warrior, I’ve been through worse. And it’s going to take a lot more than this to take me down.

We had no particular interest in wellness or health before our first diagnosis of lupus (each at age 17). But boy has that changed over time. From autoimmune problems, to mast cell activation disorder to POTS, we’ve found that the way we eat plays a HUGE role in our health. Check out the first post (in our newest series of blog posts) where we interview our amazing nutritionist for her insight {link in bio}!

@thattoddguy.bc I'm six coffees and a tall glass of water twice a day when I take my kilogram of pills. That's probably not hydration at all. I'm going to double it tomorrow, just because of your post. Thanks. That's pretty kind and loving of you, just saying.

Hi  Lilie here, I thought it was about time you could put a face to a name. In the act of transparency, I don’t actually look like this. Due to my hair falling out (thank you PCOS) I’ve delved into the world of wigs. I also literally can’t remember when the last time I had make up on was (before this photo). Also I absolutely love the fact that I can post whatever I want on here incognito, I don’t have to worry about being too sad, ill or soppy and can fully just be myself so I’m not ready for the majority of people that know me to find this account. There is a certain hilarity that looking put together is part of my “disguise”. Also I do want to add that major spoons were used on this post so please don’t judge my state of health on this. Much love to all  Lilie xx

ABLEISM • “Remember...you’re not a guest in your own life,” my therapist said last night, in the context of dealing with ableism. Ableism is something that I’ve dealt with a lot. People can’t understand why I’m unable to participate in certain activities; people misinterpret my need to rest as a sign that I’m using my health as an excuse because I really must not want to spend time with said people; not getting that someone as “smart and pretty” as me can be genuinely sick and that it’s not for attention.
- 
Discrimination in any form is really hurtful. It is the ultimate irony that I deal with discrimination for something I have ZERO control over and don’t want to deal with at all. These are the cards I was dealt and I do my best daily to rise to the occasion. Trust me when I say: it is much harder for me to live this way than it is to deal with my limited abilities for a short amount of time. For those of you who are able-bodied and get frustrated because your friend/loved one isn’t able to do something you want to do, please try to remember that those of us with limitations never get a chance to leave our bodies. While it’s frustrating because you want to experience something with your friend, your friend wants to as well, but they don’t have the option.
- 
I love the concept of what my therapist said because it’s really easy for me to feel inferior because my physical body isn’t matching up to where my spirit wants to go and would be in life. It’s such a good point to remember that I’m not a guest in my own life and I have every right to take up space, even if it’s with a mobility aid.

@terri_antoniw I’ve started to be more outspoken about my limitations recent years. However that being said I do push myself a bit to hopefully make my limitations less limiting. If that makes sense? Occasionally it’s more mental than physical though my physical limits are less than others.

Anybody who really knows me knows that I struggle with being close to someone. And letting them be affectionate, love me, etc. A history I won't delve into basically taught me that love was pain. So I avoided it. I kept everything at a distance just to save my heart from hurting.

But my fiancé overtime has taught me that love doesn't mean pain. That I can open up and be myself without fear or worry. I still struggle with being touched, but when it comes to him I feel safe. I harass him now for attention and love. Thank you for letting me open my heart slowly over time without giving up on me or us. And for supporting all my dreams while I struggle with my medical issues. I love you.

I feel like I either trust someone too much or not at all. If I love, I love so hard. If I hate, I loath. Often I find myself dreaming of things to come. Hope, consumes me... by that I mean stupendously unrealistic expectations. Or complete and utter apathy envelops my life like a suffocating blanket. I'm from one extreme too the other. Too sweet or too sour. I want a balance, I need a balance. I need 'wise mind' I can't seem to get there lately. It's been far too long.

Today is a no workout, ginger tea, unplanned kind of rest day
—————————————————
I have struggled with stomach issues since high school. I have been to numerous GI doctors, had a CT scan, numerous blood panel tests, an endoscopy. I’ve eliminated gluten, dairy, and sugar from my diet, but nothing really helps. I don’t have a diagnosis and have been told it’s all in my head. Some days I know it’s my anxiety, but others I know it’s not. I eat well, workout daily, practice tons of self-care & meditate, but some days I just need some crackers, ginger tea & some applesauce — and ultimately just call it a day.

@bobbithompson9367 Have you been tested for Hashimoto's thyroiditis? Your symptoms & situation sound very similar to my sister-in-law and after years of struggling this is what she was diagnosed with. Just a thought. Sending you well wishes.

Classic EDS petechiae. Although classical EDS is not a vascular EDS many experience vascular problems and fragility’s-I’ll bet more mildly but still. It’s especially common if the mutation is on the COL5A1 gene (Previously known as EDS type 1). Petechiae are super tiny broken blood vessels that leak blood into the skin. Mine have existed for 6 years. Typical petechiae heal but mine constantly break so I don’t see that happening. I also have healing broken eye blood vessels aka a subconjunctival hemorrhages. *My grandfather passed away at 34 of a brain aneurysm and my aunt has premature heart failure. My EDS comes from my grandfather, to my father, and then to me. #petechiae #eds #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #classiceds #classicaleds #classicalehlersdanlos #classicalehlersdanlossyndrome #ehlersdanlossyndrometype1 #ehlersdanlostype1 #edstype1 #chronicillness #geneticdisease #geneticdisorder #symptoms #medicine #invisibleillness #invisibledisease #invisibledisability #chronicpain #disabled

@izzy_s97 WOOO!!!

So accurate.
Pain causes us to be irritable, crabbit, quick tempered. I don't believe you should take it out on others, but sometimes it happens. A reminder that they will understand why, but i try and apologise when ive realised i was out of turn.
However, sometimes i am just cunt

Hi I'm J. 
My story is too long to write here, as it probably is for everyone.  In short I am minorly autistic, but grew up during a time were no one could diagnose my childhood tantrums, ran away from home and lived on the streets for a few years till i was able to get things together. I'm self medicated cause i didn't have money for fancy drs, but now that it's legal I'm not breaking the law lol. I've had very bad relationships, but still try to have a big heart.  As an adult i was finally diagnosed autistic, with severe ADHD, bipolar2, general anxiety disorder and social anxiety disorder, so I'm a very emotional man.

In short, life's been complicated, but not bad. I love my friends like family and am proud to know the spoonies now.

@drvaralakshmi Nice one! Keep up the good work

Sorry to be MIA so much recently, friends! My girl has been struggling with back-to-back health issues for the past few weeks, so life has been both crazy and mundane. And don’t worry, I’ve been doing my job and helping her around the house as much as I can  Luckily today we got to go for a walk in the woods, which was a nice change of scenery for both of us. And I got to sniff ALL the deer tracks so I’m a pretty happy pup ️

Today started out great! It’s rest day so I slept in a little. Had time to deep condition my hair and it feels SO soft, even after straightening it. Felt pretty awesome in my outfit, too!

Then, the reality of living with invisible illness hit me right in the face. I was too nauseous to eat lunch, and by the time 3PM rolled around, I was ready to cry because all of the pain that I had all of those surgeries for is coming back HARD.

I spent the afternoon curled up in bed, and I am really really hoping that things are more settled tomorrow.

Thanks for joining me on that little rant, guys! You’re the best

@winemil Thanks. This is kind of hard to explain to others. This will help.
