Puppy cuddles make everything better ๐Ÿ’– Stuartโ€™s brother got a new puppy last week! Heโ€™s called Winston and heโ€™s only 9 weeks old and Iโ€™ve tried to steal him on 3 different occasions ๐Ÿ˜ญ itโ€™s amazing being able to have not only my family, but Stuartโ€™s family who I can visit and have them take my mind off of my really poor health at the moment โ˜บ๏ธ I had a pretty rough start to the day, I had a trip to the hospital to visit my IBD nurse about my persistent throwing up over the last 6 weeks. Weโ€™ve basically not been able to come up with any idea why itโ€™s happening from 2 separate blood tests but it could mean I have inflammation in my stomach that hasnโ€™t reached my blood yet which would mean I need to go back on a biological medication and Iโ€™ve been trying to avoid but it wouldnโ€™t be the end of the world. It also could be cyclitic vomiting which basically means thereโ€™s no explanation as to why itโ€™s happening and I would have to deal with it for however long it lasts or be on a restricted diet to try and avoid it which makes me a bit worried in case another feeding tube is suggested to give my tummy a break. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ This has all now led to me being booked in for an endoscopy to try and get some answers and as much as Iโ€™m dreading that, I do really appreciate that my team take such good care of me, they especially want to be thorough because of oesophageal cancer running in my family so closely. I have no doubt in my mind I donโ€™t have anything as suspicious or dangerous as that going on because Iโ€™d be a thousand times sicker but knowing they are keeping a close eye on me because myself and Duncan never fitted into the stereotypical boxes, as itโ€™s better to be safe than sorry makes me so thankful to have a really dedicated hospital family! ๐Ÿ’– #blogger #entrepreneur #fashion #health #life #ibd #crohns #ileostomy #proctectomy #invisibleillness #chronicillness #glasgow #student #ootd #recovery #spoonie #lifestyleblog #healthblog #bodypositive #instagood #photooftheday #lifestyle #surgery #endoscopy #puppy #cute #dogsofinstagram #hospital #nhs #spoonielife

We want it and we want it now. Some wonder why me. โ€œWellโ€, why not you. Have you ever thought that maybe itโ€™s just not your turn. Or was it, but you just missed the boat. When the lesson was given to you, you failed to study now you must re-take the course. But this time you must pay better attention cause God is showing you what you missed the first time. That is where the term coined โ€œEverything in Life is a Lessonโ€. Capture the lesson and apply it to the next chapter and pass the results to others that can learn just as well. Peace. #selfconfidence #love #godsplan #lessons #confidence #reflection #knowyourworth #goals #godsword #spiritualjourney #chronicillness #powerful #loyalty #friends #family

๐Ÿ’šOn a daily basis I fill my body with IT WORKS PRODUCTS! I am 100% PROUD of our products and the company I representโ—๏ธ I love that I can look at a bottle of Greens and see that it's full of fruits and veggies, not L-carnitine or whatever else garbage fillers some pharmaceutical company put in there that your body can't even recognizeโ—๏ธ ๐Ÿ’šI love that our protein doesn't claim to be a "meal replacement shake" because we aren't meant to live on liquid mealsโ—๏ธ I love that we don't add sugars to our products, we let the sugars in the fruits in the ingredients do it for usโ—๏ธI love that we don't have to BASH other companies by name to make ourselves look better, because we let the wonderful stuff in our products do the talking for usโ€ผ๏ธ If you are serious about putting GOOD stuff in your body, start with the ingredients list. If you can't pronounce the ingredients or know what they do in your body, why would you put that in your bodyโ‰๏ธ Want to know what's in EVERY It Works product and how it works? Go to wwwโ€ขheatherhumlickโ€ขmyitworksโ€ขcom and click SHOP, click a product, scroll down, click "view product info" to see the ingredients!

I really liked yesterday's makeup and since I wasn't feeling well enough to do a look here's another pic ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope that my fatigue and pain will be better tomorrow so I can actually enjoy messing around with makeup. .

Hope you're all doing well โค๏ธ. .

Hereโ€™s a little throwback photo from dance when I was little... those were the simple days. ๐Ÿฆ‹ Let this post serve as a reminder to NEVER take your mobility for granted. Right now, my body is craving movement. All I want to do is dance (even though Iโ€™m not the best dancer in the world๐Ÿ˜‚ #mover ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป). I am so blessed to be able to walk unassisted and without any aids, which is something I have needed to do in the past, but I still canโ€™t help but think of feeling free again. When you loose your mobility, your body craves the release of energy and endorphins through movement and exercise ten-fold. I canโ€™t wait till that sweet sweet day when I am in remission and we have tackled my other recent diagnoses which have been so limiting on my body and Iโ€™m able to do just that again! Even walking through the grocery store right now without agonizing pain or passing out is a victory! Next time youโ€™re feeling tired and sore from working out or taking that really intense dance class, remember that someone somewhere wishes that they are able to have that same feeling. Keep pushing. Keep going. Remain grateful. ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ—๏ธ๐Ÿงกโ˜˜๏ธ๐ŸŒปโšก๏ธ OH, and you better believe that I am starting @tracyandersonmethod Metamorphasis as soon as I am well enough to because ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿปโ€ผ๏ธthank you SO MUCH for tweeting me the other day! You inspire me SO much and your videos empower me to keep fighting! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’—#SophiesArmy #SophieStrong

This is my rock. My husband is my biggest fan. He couldn't be any more supportive. I don't think I could so this life #chronicillness without him. On extremely hard days, both physically and mentally.. He has a way of giving me a pep talk about how strong I really am. He helps to keep me grounded. He is my everything. #grateful for #us #myhoney

Day 3 of #80dayobsession
Things I learned on day 3:
1- I got in all my containers because I was home today and didnโ€™t forget any, but did it out of order since I worked out midday and still survived.
2- stress is a real hazard when on an eating plan since you want all the things but when you eat all your containers you arenโ€™t actually hungry for more, so trust your hunger
3- slides are no joke and Sam killed it like a boss.
4- cardio isnโ€™t great for my colitis so I modified when I needed to so I can keep going on the program.

Long work days ๐Ÿ•™ and this cold weather โ„๏ธ are not ideal when living with a chronic illness. I'm certainly missing that Bajan sun, heat โ˜€๏ธ and carefree moments.
.
But, staying positive... and looking forward to a weekend of dancing ๐Ÿ’ƒ and much needed R&R ๐Ÿ’†.

Growing up my grandfather had a really cool film camera and several years ago it was stolen, but all of his lenses, filters, accessories, etc remained with us. So, over the past several weeks I'd made it my personal goal to find his camera (or at least the kind of camera he had). This task proved to be significantly harder than expected but thanks to some very old receipts and a couple pieces of paper tucked away in the folds of bags we managed to discover the truth that lead to me now being the proud owner of a 1987 Canon film camera. Even though it's not the one he held in his hands, it still makes me feel like he's there taking blurry pictures with me. And since he was older than sliced bread, it truly makes this the best thing since Bob King.

Our first day of classes! ๐Ÿซ We got pretty good seats so far, and my professors have been accommodating and respectful! The only attention we got was outside of class, which was nice for a change! ๐Ÿ˜
In Algebra Jasmine had a lot more space under the table, but in English our class is really full so she had to tuck under my chair ๐Ÿ˜…
Tomorrow we have Psych and Safety & First Aid, Iโ€™m really excited for those classes! ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿšจ

Photo one: Jasmine and I stand in front of a building on campus. Iโ€™m holding onto her harness and am turning to look at the camera. Jasmine is looking at something off screen.
Photo two: Jasmine lays at my feet under the table, loosely curled up.
Photo three: Jasmine lays under my chair, her head and shoulder peeking out the front between my feet. Part of my leg and the chair are visible.

Picture of a cool rock lamp I got for Christmas. I probably wont be very active on here for a bit. Once again I need to ask you to please send me all the good vibes, healing thoughts, prayers(whatever ya got! lol) you can. I have been on Benlysta infusions for 2 years and was unable to get it the past 2 times I needed to because I was "normal people sick" (cant get Benlysta when sick because it can cause you to become sicker) When i went to scedual it again, it had to go through my insuance again to get re-approved so I had to wait 14 days. Well, today was supposed to be the day where I get it again, I was beyond excited because Benlysta has been keeping my SCLE(also discoid and bullous) Lupus from flaring up and I have been expiriencing symptoms of my skin getting bad againg. Ive had sores in my mouth, throat, and nose. My skin has been itchy and alot more sensative to light again, both natural and artificial. Along with that I have been getting a Malar rash... well, for some reason my insurance company thinks that I dont need to be on it anymore and I was unable to get it today because of that. Im hoping we can get this mess figured out soon because this medication has been a life saver, Id hate for my health to get alot worse because the insurance people have their heads up their butts ๐Ÿ™ƒ I am over 40 days late on my infusion and really not doing good #lupus #sle #scle #benlysta #chronicillness #chronicallyill #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease
