My friends in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore & Chennai: please support us in this non profit cause to raise awareness for autoimmune diseases. Please join us for the autoimmune walk across four cities on December 14 at 4:30 PM. This is to spread awareness for 80+ autoimmune conditions which are incurable in medical science and patients go from suffering, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, debilitation, being bedridden and deformed and finally succumbing to side-effects of toxic medications by having multiple organ failure. Help us spread awareness about how we can better the quality of life of patients who have currently nowhere to go. Looking forward to seeing you on December 14!

Define your happiness and create it. Define your success and chase it. Define your peace and live it.
Don't let anyone's expectations of you stop you from living your life on your terms. Not even your own expectations.
Don't project your feelings and anxieties on to others just like you wouldn't want them to project on you.
Live and Let Live.

Finals are over, the semester has come to an end! For me, it means having the time to try out monthly migraine shots I’ve been waiting for all semester. This semester has proved to be really challenging to manage my pain on a day to day basis, but I’m so blessed to have had an incredible support system in and out of classes - from AΩE to senior design and all the relationships I’ve made from E-Lead, there have been so many people willing to extend compassion, listen, send notes from class, and make time to check on me. Special shoutout to @emilyeyates for FaceTiming me tonight while I did my injection!! Fingers crossed this drug brings much needed relief! 🤞🏼 #ajovy #chronicmigraine #chronicpain #invisibleillnessawareness

This is what it feels like sometimes dealing with chronic pain. It can be isolating and lonely, but I've learned over the years to reach out to those with who I trust in sharing my story. It feels good to be vulnerable, authentic, and really fu*king honest. I'm buzzing with joy from an amazing afternoon tea I had with @katlinevans29. We've known each other for a long time through an art festival that we both exhibit in, but until recently our paths have crossed, and we've started what I think is a beautiful friendship. If anything this adversity has taught me that opening up and sharing creates deep connection with others, and that's what I'm looking for in life. Deep connection is so damn moving, Raw, messy, and healing. Feeling really grateful on this full moon night, which happens to be Friday the 13th! 🌝✨🙏

All I could do yesterday was sleep. I thought that was a good sign that my body was relaxing to heal but I've been awake all night. I'm feeling pretty low.
I feel like it's been one thing after another, I've only had one decent night sleep in over 8 weeks, and my immune system is rock bottom. I'm tired all day and awake all night like a vampire. .
I know that I will bounce back from this, I'm a stubborn cow and won't let this beat me but I'm so impatient and this bad spell is lasting so long. 🙄

Funny thing about being #chronicallyill, your #weight fluctuates like crazy. This #stunning #sterlingsilver @alexandani #bracelet was part of my #birthday gift from my sissy. But, my hands were so #swollen, or I was just extra fat, that I couldn't get it on. I was pretty disappointed in myself. Carrie and I figured out I could buy a sterling silver clasp and she could fix it so that I could put it on and take it off like a traditional bracelet. Well, a month and a half, and about 15 lbs later, I can slide this puppy on and off all by myself! And it's actually pretty big on my wrist so I have to tighten it down quite a bit. Needless to say, I'm a #happycamper. It's always nice to be able to actually use a beautiful gift you've been given! #bestsisterever #chronicpancreatitis #heartdisease #diabetes #gastroparesis #coeliac #chronicpain #nausea #noappetite #unintentionalweightloss #itsallcomingbacktomenow

This is today’s “Verse of the day” from @youversion and when I saw it, I had to make an animation of it 😌 It’s one of my favorite verses and it’s been especially impacting today.
🍂
I’m trying to come to that place of fully depending on God in everything (as explained in my last post). And so far it’s been difficult, as is to be expected. As a human our nature is to rely on our own flesh, to seek after instant gratification and things within 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙧𝙤𝙡. But that will only offer us cheap pleasure, nothing in comparison to the eternal satisfaction that God has for us.
🍂
Being in this mental space, dealing with depression and trauma and chronic pain. It’s especially difficult sometimes to depend on Him. Because the pain is so overwhelming it feels like it’s all I can think about, like there’s no room to relax or let go. Yet in those times, the need to let go and let God is so much more important. Because when we do release our fists and look up with open arms, He’s finally able to give us the peace that we so desperately need. Or at least be our shoulder to cry on. I can’t tell you how many nights I’ve spent broken at His feet in agony. And though He didn’t bring peace, I knew that was where I needed to be. And He let me cry because that’s what I needed to do.
🍂
Sometimes crying, absolutely broken at the feet of God is exactly what dependency on Him looks like. Sometimes it’s an act of courage and strength to give yourself permission to be so broken. To intentionally come to Him in full vulnerable honesty 💜

Still no news but I am not going to stress out about it. I have done what I could. I have done my part. Normally I would spend the weekend a ball of nerves, but I am choosing not to. Or trying not to. The more nerves the more pain. Just crossing lots of fingers 🤞 and hoping for the best.

Researching Diaphragm Pain at work. Usually it's on my left side and I will feel it in my chest. Today I'm having pain on my right side. I have plenty of notes for my doctor.
I wish I knew what is causing this pain. Its annoying. And it's already been a stressful week. Heres to hoping it will go away before bed time so I can get some sleep tonight!

I went out tonight! I had a lot of fun hanging out and catching up with family this evening 😀

____

But as fun as a time I had I was also in pain. I ended up having to stand for a few hours, which is not great for my pain. And now that I'm home I am curled up in a blanket with my heating pads!
____

Social situations can be hard for people with illnesses. And with my chronic pain needing to have limits of what I can do can suck.
____

But here is what I did tonight to help manage that

___
1. I let someone I was with know I was hurting.
2. I got that person to give my muscles a quick massage.
3. I used them as a physical support by placing my arm on their shoulder
4. Knew when I reached my absolute limit and left

___

I definitely pushed my body tonight and now it needs rest. As much as it sucks I am forever thankful for the people in my life I can trust with being supportive

Well, I absolutely hate this image caption.

Dear adults, do not stand with her. "Standing with her" shows you aren't listening to what she is saying. She doesn't want us adults to stand with her. She's a kid, whom has had to step up and call us all out on failing her and her generation. If you stand with her, you're standing in the wrong spot. You're standing with someone who shouldn't need to be where she is, you're standing with a kid who wonders why you're here and not on the front lines where we keep putting her. We adults fail her Everytime we promote her, a kid, instead of stepping up and fixing the issues she has to call us on.

The kids are behind us. Not in front. If you stand with her. You aren't protecting her and her age. You're being a kid.
Step up ahead of the line. Do something that needs fixing. Be someone she doesn't need to be calling out.

True for physical health too. I have a virus and am fully tending to it without guilt. I did the bare minimum for work and I don't feel the need to apologize for it. The idea of "toughing it out" is toxic for so many people. When you have a condition like #ehlersdanlossyndrome "toughing it out" could be deadly. If you live with #EDS or any any type of #chronicpain #chronicillness or #chronicfatigue , I give you full permission to drop that "tough it out mantra". Set it down, walk away slowly, and let the wolves devour it. #selfcare #mindset #thelovestead #ladylovestead

A good day of mine, but not all of them can be good days. Thankfully, today is also a good day. Today, I've only had minor pain flares, and that makes me happy!

Denali's new collar came in today!!!!@aacc_models I'm so happy and excited I'll be posting pictures of him in it when I get the chance. I just pulled a double shift at work and I feel dead and I have to be back up to go back into work by 7 tomorrow. Although I'm tired I want money. So. Much. Money. Denali did pretty good today he was tired and sassy but he behaved and just hung out 💜🦓 other than some issues with the metal clip I'm in love with this collar I highly suggest getting one. It is sturdy and beautifully crafted by hand! #landshark #babyshark  #gsd #gsdofinstagram #germanshepherdservicedog #germanshepherd #goodboy #gsdservicedog #servicedogeducation #servicedog #ehlersdanlosservicedog #ehlersdanlossyndrome #ehlersdanlos #edsawareness #mentalhealth #invisableillness #respectthevest #lifeline #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #vasovagalsyncope #dysautonomiaawareness

Never underestimate the power of

Small actions done consistently.

Whether it's working on

Your health,

Your mindset,

Your business... It may not seem like much over a short period of time,

But when you add it up over a few months,
A year or two, you can really accomplish a lot!

Remember,
When you're working on your goals,

It's not a sprint,

It's a marathon.

And it's not about who places first.

Stop looking at others.
Focus on YOU.

10 mins a day / with specific focus is so powerful.

I was once asked how did I find the time to write my book, while running after my kiddos.

10 mins a day over a period of 4 months... (Grab it here for free @ HealMeAreefa.com/book)

It wasn't easy, but you do the best you can do.
And that's really all you can do.

Love,

Areefa

I've always had these moments, periods, of time where my depression would do a complete three sixty.

I never knew how to explain it or what was happening. It's a calm that runs over my body and I'm just content feeling, my sadness and just all care for anything disappears.
I seem to be able to run on little to no sleep, even though my body wants to crash. But even when I sleep my body wakes up every hour. My mind races and goes charging in about a hundred thousand different directions, all fighting for the forefront spot at my brain to pick away at my mind.
My concentration seems to disappear over time, but it seems all too quickly. I can no longer remember a conversation I was even taking part in. I try to speak but words come out three at a time at about two sentences a minute. The sound of the words my mouth tries to piece together confuses even me and I lose my train of thought once again.
I have no cares. I feel like the world is nothing, I am nothing, and pain is most pleasurable sounding. I am no longer cautious of my surroundings or the actions I do that may result in my harm.

The worst part; I can realize that all this is going on and I literally have no control at all in fixing it, but nor do I have the motivation and enthusiasm to do so.

I learned that this is what a manic episode is. I've had bipolar depression and these episodes for so long and never understood what was happening.
Unfortunately they've always been followed by some of the darkest days if depression.

This ride is exhausting. I'd like to get off please.

Accomplishment for the day: I managed to shave my legs. It’s really hard to do when you need to stand on one foot and when one of those feet has arthritis. So the fact I was able to AND DURING THE WINTER is a big deal. Yes my joints hurt a lot now but I’m happy I was able to do this. Also I noticed what looks like a new psoriasis spot on my leg. If it is I’m gonna be MAD. Pretty much my whole scalp is covered, I have it all over and in my left ear and on both my under arms so another spot is not good at all

“My name is Juls and I have experienced #lymedisease symptoms since I was 13. About 3 years ago, things took a turn for the worse. One day, I suddenly lost the ability to walk, which then led to seizures, uncontrollable tremors, exhaustion, short term memory loss, brain fog, and too many other symptoms to name. It took several years and many doctors too finally get a #lymedisease diagnosis. After 18 months of treatment, I am back to working full time, I can exercise (sometimes), and I pretty much live a normal life now. Yes, I have my bad days, but the good days certainly outweigh the bad. It's a shame that #lymedisease is not often recognized and is pushed aside by the medical community. As a mental health professional who has been plagued with #lymedisease, I am now dedicating my life to helping others suffering from this disease. Lyme is real. Never give up. You will get there.” @onceupnalyme 💚 #awarecauses

Hey, y’all! It’s time for another round of #fridayintroductions! I’m Jenn and I’m glad you’re here!
.
I’m a writer and therapist, lover of stories and deep conversations and jazz and nature walks. Oh and lots of #selfcare too. . .
.
👉🏻👉🏻 There’s a lot of people in pain and suffering who need help slowing down and resting. I’m the cheerleader who encourages mistakes, sadness, and grief because that’s compost for the soul. It’s holy ground of transformation, and when I’m in session with a person I’m electric; I can feel the power of Spirit moving in the midst of us, drawing out kindness and hope, buoying folks up for the next part of their journey.
.
Counseling is an amazing opportunity to heal from past trauma and I’m honored I get to do it for a living.
.
✨ Also, I love writing and have grown tremendously when I combined spiritual practices with guided writing assignments. One of my essays is coming out tomorrow and I look forward sharing it with you.
.
I could not do the writing thing without my friends and writing community and spiritual family. . .
.
💃 Sometimes the joy is so much it spills out everywhere; all I can do is stand in the waterfall and dance.

No makeup today..
Stressful night last night and a lot of running around today.
I had my first appointment with the pain clinic and we got a bunch of tests set up.
We also discussed switching my meds again to get me.off the opiates and on something specifically designed for fibromyalgia pain.
I am so incredibly thankful for this because I was truly hoping to not be on pain pills long term.
Just another step in the journey to finding answers.

I've had so many bad days filled with tears or despair in the 22years he's been by my side. Each and every one of them he's held me up so I didn't completely give up. I don't know how he does it. Its almost magical. .
.
.
Last night as he was on shift at the Fire Department, I had reached my limit once again. Consumed with horrible all over pain at its peak from really overdoing it lately, and mentally and physically exhausted after a challenging few weeks. I basically cried myself to sleep. Like all out weeping and telling God I can't deal with it anymore. .
.
.
I woke today with eyes red and swollen and pushed myself to keep our scheduled volunteering event. He of course helped me accomplish all my to-do's today, and as always by the end of spending the day with him, I am smiling, laughing and happy to be alive. .
.
.
I don't believe in coincidences. I didn't just happen to meet my perfect match by chance. God knew the battles I'd face again and again, and sent me exactly what i needed to see the light at the end of sometimes a very dark tunnel. .
.
Surround yourself with people that make you happy to be alive. If you haven't found Mr or Ms Right, there is someone out there perfectly imperfect just for you.

You are so much bigger than the burden you carry. The struggle may never get easier, but you will get stronger. You have experienced so much pain, but you have also learned so much.
Here in the darkness, you learned to make your own light. Here in the depths, you learned to hold up hope. Here in the fog, you learned how to see the clear.

Top #chronicpain posts

Sometimes Friday can feel like a relief of a week ending & a new beginning, but other times, it can feel like the mark of a week taking everything out of you - leaving you drained. No matter if you’re feeling proud of the week you’re about to leave behind or if you’re feeling like you have zero spoons left for the weekend ahead, take time to reflect on accomplishments big & small this week. Did you try something new new? Get even one step closer to a goal? Make it to your appointments? Spend time with a friend? Don’t forget the little successes - they’re important too! Celebrate your strength not only when you’re feeling strong, but also when you’re feeling defeated. When you’re at a low point, you’re fighting your hardest! Don’t forget your strength, we sure haven’t! #fightlikeawarrior #sickfightsback 💪

⬇️ What is one of your little successes from this past week? 🎊

What you do doesn’t define who you are — in this season and all year long 🥳❤️
Society wants us to believe the *more* we hustle and bustle, the bigger our value and worth ⬆️
During the holidays, this false equation implies the busier we are, the greater our ♥️ + good cheer 🎉
But output has nothing to do with your worth 🙅‍♀️
And look 👀 outside to see another story
❄️❄️❄️
Winter shows us the power and purpose of tuning inward and taking our time ⏰
Creatures cozy up to hibernate 🐿 and plants settle down until spring🌲There is gentle peace in the falling of snow ⛄️ and calm in the quiet of an earlier nightfall 🌚
Whether in nature or within ourselves, slowing down is a necessary part of reflection and restoration 🌟
And stillness helps us appreciate magic moments that can go overlooked when moving too fast 🏃‍♀️ We honor the winter season of slowing down *without judgement* and you too deserve to honor your need for rest as much as required 🙏

Anyone else familiar with this?
•••••••
All the time I feel like I’m convincing people it isn’t really that bad, and I’m fine, and I can handle it all.
But it is that bad.
I’m not fine.
And I can’t handle it all.
I have a rare chronic disease.
I have to work.
I have to go to doctors and treatments all the time.
I need to keep up with my apartment.
I have a dog and cat to take care of.
I pass out, have seizures, throw up, have episodes, and deal with a ridiculous amount of symptoms from my collection of diseases... But through all that. It’s easier to say I’m fine.
It’s easier than having to see that look people give you.
It’s easier than listening to them say “I don’t know what you want me to do.”
Its easier than having to try to think of ways for them to help you...
That’s why I love this community so much.
I don’t need to pretend to be okay here.

So I feel like crap, and I’m going to be hiding in bed for the rest of the day 😅😴 if someone could just pay us for being sick so we didn’t have to work... that’d be great 😂 .
