#autoimmunedisease

Some of you are in my DM's inquiring "what is lupus?" "Whats a Lupus Flare?" "How does it affect you?" To plainly put it- LUPUS ATTACKS MY BODY... It has invaded my once healthy body and betrayed me in every way humanly possible....joint pain, body aches, fatigue, migraines, stomach issues, skin rash, nauseous, respiratory, issues, inflammation, your body is fighting itself #ThatsLupus #kNOwLupus #naturallylupie #lupieChick #leakygutsyndrome #autoimmunedisease #chronicillness #lupuswarrior #lupus #lupuswarrior #lupusflare #lupusawareness #lupusfighter #lupussupport #lupusstruggle #lupuslife #lupusadvocate #lupuswillnotwin #livingdespitelupus

It's nights like last night I remember why I got into theatre. 🤔I was coming off the day from hell and a half. 🤦🏼‍♀️My job is throwing me curveballs left and right, my personal life feels like it's about to implode and of course it's all taking a toll on my body. 🤰🏼My Endo belly looks about 4 months pregnant and my head feels like it's throbbing. 🤕Through it all, I get to rehearsal and it all takes a back seat. The music goes on, and these 5 women start singing and harmonizing and everything else just disappears. 🎼The theatre is my safe haven, it's home. Any theatre, any stage, the lights go down and the music goes up and I'm home. 🎭This show is a labor of love for me, I can honestly say these people that I share directing this with also happen to be my best friends. 💏I feel so blessed to birth this baby with them by my side and I love every minute of it. 😍Every laugh, every cry, every missed note, every wrong turn and every night with them is like being home. ❤️
---
I plan to Tackle This Temptation with a Time Step and keep on fighting like I do 💪🏽 💛

So, I chugged some Energize and here I go!! #thursdaymotivation #workout #workoutmotivation #energize #preworkout #exhausted #fatigued #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease

Clinic with this one 🤓

Joint clinic today to fill the consultants in with what's been going on and how treatment is.
Boy what a difference one year and 9 months makes. When I first came to this clinic I could barely sit up in my wheelchair and was in and out of consciousness. My mum and Dad where with me and when we were called in they wheeled me into the consultant room. This was the first time I met my lung specialist and as we sat there he began to explain and show us on the computer the damage wg had caused he had told me that the 3 nodules on my lungs would cause me problems in the future and I would be prone to chest infections. He told me like all the others that it would take me a long time to recover and that I would have to put fitness to the back burner.
Despite hearing this shocking news and not understanding half the stuff that was said I remember feeling an overwhelming feeling of fear in the pit of my belly and looking and my Ma and Pa's faces as the fear was all over theirs! I sat in my chair and vowed to myself that I wouldn't give up that what they were telling me were lies and I would be back to me soon.
I smiled and thanked them. At home that night I started my plan I started in my head my goals first one master walking to the door in my room. Each morning I would throw my legs over my bed and push up I would stand for a few seconds and then fall back on my bed but time and time again I would do this and I finally made it to the door. Every day I grew stronger with food, small movements and with the help of my evil friends steroids.
Fast forward today where I have ran a half marathon, climbed 8 mountains within 8 days and planing on doing another half marathon in a few weeks.
Believe you can get through this storm and know you are the rainbow at the end, you are worth every fight along the way just don't give up ❤️ #Wegeners #wegenersgranulomatosis #vasculitis #vasculitisuk #invisibleillness #spoonie #chronicillness #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease #raredisease #butyoudontlooksick #chemo #predisone #wg #gpa #motivation #determination #fight #strong #live #life #love #nevergiveup #health

After a 7 week period of hospital appointments and blood tests, I have finally been diagnosed with Wegeners Auto Immune Disease 😖 I Started my Chemo yesterday, and I am currently on a cocktail of tablets which I will be on for a long time to come. I have a new look at life, things I use to really worry about don't seem that important anymore? This won't beat me, it will only make me stronger 💪👊💪 #selfie #selfi #beardman #beard #beardedman #stubble #roughlooking #beardstyle ##beardsofinstagram #beardgang #blackandwhite #man #guy #freethebeard #menwithbeards #menwithbeard #beardlife #knackered #menwithbeardsandtattoos #beardstyle #beard-strong #beardo #wegnersgranulomatosis #autoimmunedisease #autoinmunedisease #beardlove

I had my home tested for EMF's and other electrical type radiation. I live out in the country and we are getting a lot of exposure from cell phone towers through our windows and the roof of our house. We have steel siding which protects us significantly which is nice because we have a smart meter right outside our bedroom. Fellow #NTP @brianhoyer specializes in these types of home assessments and it was really eye opening. We discovered my daughters mattress is magnetized and she is getting quite a bit of exposure to radiation through the walls and her window. Her bed and my bed are both sitting in a path of geopathic stress (I think that is the right term). Why should you care about this? Our bodies repair themselves at night and when you are inundated with this electronic stress all the time but most especially at night, your body can't repair itself like it is meant to. Thankfully there are solutions to this. They are not cheap but they are needed. This could be your missing link. @bettereverydaypodcast @betterbydrbrooke @sarah_fragoso you guys need to have @brianhoyer on to explain this more. #chronicillness #hashimotos #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease #autoimmuneprotocol #sleep #radiation #emf

There are no shortcuts. Consistency often times even trumps having a good strategy. The two combined though 👌🏽.

18 years fighting this disease. Never would I have thought that Crohns Disease was going to control my life. Never would I have thought 18yrs ago that my life would change dramatically. But here I am 18yrs later and 3yrs into remission I'm finally in control of my life. Don't get it wrong I always think what if. But till then I'll do my part to stay healthy and in remission... #remissionispossible #finallyinremission #crohns #crohnsdisease #crohnsawareness #fuckcrohns #crohnssucks #crohnsawareness #autoimmunedisease #autoimmuneproblems #bestrong #havefaith #itwillhappen

A rare photo from my 21st birthday! The night I fractured my femur. It was a pretty great night up until that point. Rhys made a speech and admitted that we were dating, finishing his speech by kissing me😱 clearly my flare for the dramatic was rubbing off on him #2005#tbt#21stbirthday#boyfriendtohusband #lovehim #myworld #iamthefaceofarthritis #autoimmunedisease #chronicillness #chronicpain

Baked apple pecan oatmeal... because that sounds more socially acceptable than apple crisp for breakfast... 😆🍎🍏 #paleoish (pretty sure it's a fail with oats but surely apples pecans coconut oil and coconut flour are my redemption??) #thyroid #thyroidproblems #hypothyroid #hypothyroidism #hormones #celiac #autoimmunedisease #diet #lifestyle #healwithfood #health #healthy #healthyfood #eatforhealth #wellness #journeytowellness #natural #naturalremedies #glutenfree #dairyfree #soyfree #vegan #breakfast #breakfastbowl #breakfastofchampions #breaky #apples #applecrisp #oatmeal

Rosh Hashana brisket, the AIP way. And I made it in the Instant Pot. But I got the golden finish by carving and browning on a slow oven (250) for the last half hour.
Onion, carrots, sautéed then add salt and peppered sautéed brisket to IP. Add herbs (thyme, rosemary,) and liquid. I used bone broth. Cook on manual for 50 minutes. Finish in oven. at 225-250. Yum!!! #instantpot #recipes #brisket #frommykitchen #holidaycooking #jewishholiday #aip #autoimmunedisease #no sugar #no gluten #sugar free #glutenfree #paleodiet #paleo
