💢💢I love freaking out people 💢💢

[you’ll enjoy this]

In honor of the upcoming international excursion (!!!), I gotta post the airplane injection life.
.
Inject while people are boarding, and you get quite the reaction.
.
People are usually too afraid to ask what you’re doing, but their expressions read as follows:
.
⭕️What the actual eff is this dude doing?
⭕️Take your drugs in the bathroom…or not near me
⭕️Great, another addict. Just what we need. I hope I dont sit near him
⭕️Wait, he’s injecting in his shoulder?
.
I find it quite entertaining. It’s reverse people watching. They’re watching me and judging, but I just see it as funny.
.
They dont know your story, and dont let their judgment dissuade you from doing what YOU need to do for YOUR health.
.
Also, remember, on planes, your body can become more insulin resistant due to altitude, so sometimes, an intramuscular injection is going to work more effectively than a normal subcutaneous injection…or at least faster.
.
How do you handle your dosing on planes? Comment below 👇🏻👇🏻

This is accurate! I feel like my house is never cleaned correctly/the way I want it because I can only do so much at once. It’s so frustrating! How do you cope with an unclean house? -Meena⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Anyone ever feel like their brain went out to lunch and forgot to come back? Totally asking for a friend. 😬
In all seriousness though, brain fog can make even the simplest of tasks, so much harder. From chores, to small activities, to basic conversations-it’s like the body and the brain aren’t connected. It can be frustrating and overwhelming, and even disheartening. On these days, the days when it’s exceptionally tough, it’s important to remember to be gentle and kind to yourself. You’re doing the very best that you can and that’s enough. Sending you all lots of spoonie love and hoping this week is off to a fresh start! 🥄 P.S... check out the link in our profile to listen to our podcast episode on Brain Fog!.

Let’s reframe the way we see those with a mental illness who reach out for support - it’s not simply “attention seeking” for the sake of it. There’s a very clear, healthy and practical purpose for reaching out. Please don’t dismiss it 🙏

No filter needed for the sunset tonight. 🌅 //
I cancelled all plans and took it easy - dry brushing, bath, gentle walk, good food, rest, rest, rest. //
I’m trying to recover from a week spent at a storytelling workshop at Harvard (opposite coast, time zone shift). It was super interesting but the longest days I’ve pulled in awhile... and I developed a bad cough throughout the week.
//
I’ve been normal people sick for almost 6 weeks - just a cold I cannot shake. It’s not a big deal, mostly annoying. But the cold + my level of fatigue after a week like that remind me that I’m not back 100%. That my immune system still needs some babying. That I have to be more careful than most.
//
Getting back to 100% may not happen anytime soon ... and I’m trying to adjust to new limits (can do so much more than a few years ago, but still can’t quite keep up). It’s a frustrating inbetween - I’m still extraordinarily grateful to how far I’ve come. But each stage has a new emotional landscape and I’m learning this new place - each rock and river.
//
I’ve learned quickly this new stage has two annoying hills: normal people sick and being so close to the end yet not quite there yet. So close but so far. //

If you feel like you're fallen
Tell me and I'll also make the leap
And if you feel like you're empty
Let me in your soul I'll fix the leak...
Cause tomorrow's not a promise it's a blessin' and that's honest
And that's comin' from a sinner so when I sleep inside my coffin
I hope you hear me in your dreams, hope you learn from my mistakes
Hope you open up your mind to the power nature let's us take
And embrace the vibrations of the freedom in the wind
Born to be great, make a change, and live it all again, uh.

Fallen by Upchurch

Great song for a run, when you're trying to run from your demons.  Not in a competition with anyone but myself, trying to be a better person than I was yesterday. Keep pushing my friends, it may hurt and seem never ending. But I promise you when we all reach our destination we will be happy we never quit. We don't have to do this alone, lean on each other. Proud of each and everyone of you fighting the battle inside, dont give up.

Chronic illnesses are no joke and if someone is suffering from any it's not up to others to judge them. These people wouldn't wish these things on anyone... it's not something that they wish they or anyone had. They just do their best to deal with their disease and illnesses. Living with these things are hard enough without others giving them a hard time. So if you're able to heal yourself organically and with pilates well good for you... but others it's hard to get out of bed, move daily, and live with themselves. They are not less than. It's a difficult life for everyone some more than others... let's not make it more so for them. Look in on your family and friends and offer a friendly hand. We need love more than your attempt to understand.

I went to a work dinner tonight at @originalheydaycafe. The food was delicious and we had such a good time! • • A few years ago I usually refused to go on outings like this.

I don't feel bad anymore when I have to say no in order to preserve my "spoons." (I highly recommend you read up on the "Spoon Theory" regarding invisible illness if you haven't already. It's the best. • • But anyway, I'm really glad that I can go on these little outings now and enjoy myself. We laughed a ton and chatted about small stuff. • • Even if you don't 100% have a passion for what you do, at least make sure you love the people you're doing it with. It makes everything a million times better. ...
