Today we took a trip to @Petco @HomeDepot and @Sonic. I wore my vest and tried my best to focus on my girl. I met a French Bulldog named Jackson who helped me learn to greet other dogs gently. I didn’t jump on people but my girl held me on a tight leash. Now I am all tuckered out and have been napping for the last hour. #sundayfunday #trainingday #TuckerScoutMason #goldendoodlesofinstagram #goldendoodle #goldendoodlepuppy #servicedog #sdit #servicedogintraining #tasktrained #menieresdisease #autoimmune #chronicillness #18weeksold #puppylove

You know when you start a game and it asks you to choose a level of difficulty? Novice - intermediate - nightmare - impossible. Sometimes we wake up and our life difficulty level seems like it’s been set on impossible mode, making the most basic of things laborious. People tell me that by thinking more positively I can switch the mode to novice at will. I think perhaps there is some truth to that, joyful thoughts are proven to decrease cortisol levels and produce serotonin. However, the hard part is finding the happy thoughts when you are buried under ten feet of hopelessness, and I think this is the part people forget. While I’m sure this method is helpful, it’s not always the solution, and no one should feel weak because this doesn’t work for them. I just want to encourage people to think about the kind of advice you give to someone who is going through a rough time, whether it be bereavement, mental illness, chronic illness, etc. Sometimes the best thing to do is to be an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on. .

Sunday mornings are for the waffles. I used @bobsredmill paleo baking mix, @enjoylifefoods mini chocolate chips, @so_delicious unsweetened vanilla coconut milk, maple syrup, and this awesome mini waffle maker I found at TJ Maxx. If you had to choose, would you be team waffle or pancake? 🍫🥞😋 .

My amazing better half has taken the napping kiddo with him grocery shopping, and let me hang out with a delicious pot of tea and some light weekend reading. 😜

I'm still knitting away on these chunky beanies! They're so squishy and comfy, I keep going back to them between other projects. Of course, I need to be especially conscious of my joints now that I know what can cause injury. I also am much better about not just sitting in one place for long periods of time (I always get comments from people when I'm walking around while knitting! It is, admittedly, pretty funny). It's also much easier with the chunky beanies to grab stitches here and there between running around with a 2-year-old!

I know I need to work more on the photographing, editing, and listing the things I make, but I'm a lot better at making than marketing. I can admit to my weaknesses! 😆 It definitely helps a lot to keep everything organized, and making lots of lists and spreadsheets. I'm taking some time today to specifically work on my Etsy shop (same name as here!) and do some research into website stuff. Somewhere in there I hope to spend some time outside with the Peanut; it's 50° out here in Rhode Island, with sunny clear skies! It's been so rainy and overcast, I'm less bummed about the bright fireball in the sky today. 😜

I forgot to post this yesterday. Here is 3 months post op. Her hair is about 85% grown in. You might not see it in the photo but when you look at her up close you can see the line of the shave still (it's faint). I give her about another 1-3 months until it's fully grown in. Love her progress so far. I figured out her hair loss source so she's has finally grew back all the hair she lost. She has one small patch on her back and 2 on her face that are still growing back in ☺️

I realized I messed up last months. It was 2 months instead of 3 months!

Today we met Lipton's girl to show her the ropes of what it's like to be a service dog handler🐶🐾. It's an adjustment walking around with a celebrity 🌟all the time so we decided to meet her at the mall to get a taste of what it'll be like working lipton! No Im not talking about ☕️, Lipton is a service dog in training at @k9heights . And Guys, Lipton's going home in the next few months!! That's great news for his girl and we're so excited for them.
As far as showing his girl the ropes, I don't know what ropes they're thinking of, there are no ropes for a service dog🤦‍♀️. I do know that I have to keep my girl on my leash or else she may get lost 😉 Lipton may want to try this with his girl too. Either way we can't wait to see Lipton and his girl in action. #goldendoodle #workingdog #teach #smile #floof #servicedog #practice #learning #lipton #obedience #keepmygirlonaleash #dysautonomia #pots #chronicillness

This fact actually surprised me -- every time I see a doctor who isn't an Endo, every time I end up in the ER, in their line of questioning one of the first is 'does it run in your family?' .
.
.
When I said no they always say 'huh, that's odd' and made me feel like a mutant. . Once again the ignorance in doctors who don't specialize in t1d is incredible 😖

It's that time of year when all is supposed to be "merry and bright". But just remember to take care of yourself while decorating, entertaining, shopping, and running around. And just as important, take pause in each moment, fill your ❤️ with gratitude, and let your mind be overcome with peace.✌🏻

This was the first day meeting my girl, Katie. I was scruffy, needed a bath, & a major haircut. I was so happy to be held. #TuckerScoutMason #goldendoodlesofinstagram #goldendoodle #goldendoodlepuppy #servicedog #sdit #servicedogintraining #tasktrained #menieresdisease #autoimmune #chronicillness #15weeksold #puppylove

I love this season. It’s been an exhausting month—couple months, really. But I’m sitting outside snuggled up with a blanket, wearing fuzzy socks, and drinking hot chocolate while Adam builds a table (because he’s Adam “the Toolman” Taylor, for those of you who don’t know). I’m feeling good.

Chronic illness is a funny thing. Couple it with an anxiety disorder and it’s a freaking hilarious thing. Getting up in the morning is always a struggle when the first thing you have to do is assess how severe your pain and nausea is, and decide what measures—if any—you need to take in order to function. You prioritize your tasks based on necessity and on how much energy they’ll take from you. Energy you aren’t going to get back from a nap or caffeine. Then you quiet that self-criticizing voice inside your brain that tells you to stop being dramatic while simultaneously goading you to just throw in the towel; you’ll never get anything done so what’s the point in trying? That voice can be sharp, and loud, and aggressive. It can break you down, and kick you while you’re there. But, right now, breathing this crisp, cold air, that voice is silent. In its place, a voice assuring me this is who I was created to be, and that’s enough. I’m reminded there’s hope for me yet.

Every morning, drink 16oz or more of celery juice on an empty stomach. Plain celery with no added ingredients. It is a medicinal drink that flushes the liver while hydrating the body. It restores mineral salts in the body that stabilize the brain, nervous system and other organs. It restores the hydrochloric acid in the gut which is essential for digesting food!! Most of us have depleted hydrochloric acid and without the good acids in the gut, we can suffer a lot of digestive discomforts. Celery has helped heal my stomach even after a year of hard core antibiotics for my lyme diagnosis!!! It’s an absolute miracle food/juice.

Today isn't going as planned.
I'm tired. Exhausted, actually.
And we were supposed to be at church 45 minutes ago.
But we aren't.
We are doing diabetes instead.
Because diabetes doesn't care if you have plans. Or if you are tired or if you don't want to diabetes today.
I am constantly in awe of the strength contained in this tiny, four year old, little warrior.
No complaints today, even with an unplanned, double-poke, sensor & site change.
The only thing he said about it was "Didn't hurt," with a shrug.

When I was younger and thought about having children I thought about all of the things I would teach them. It never occurred to me that THEY would be the ones teaching ME. ❤️💪❤️💪
❤️ How to be brave.
❤️ How to persevere.
❤️ How to never give up.
❤️ How to live life joyfully in the midst of trials.

We are truly so blessed.
