This isn’t exactly a #taskittuesday thing but it shows how I’ve gotten my dogs to carry just about anything. IT HAS TO BE FUN.
🦄
You can see the first time I asked it was only for a few seconds. After that you can see how eager he is to hold it again! He even chewed the end a bit while I held it for me to give it back to him... Once he has it the second time he’s more than willing to carry it a few steps.
🦄
Be happy about whatever your dog is doing (reference my obnoxiously happy voice) & they’ll be happy about it, too & WANT to do it to make you happy. (For reference that’s a 1/2 PVC pipe @ 38” long with a T joint on one end.)
🦄
Build drive with happiness & cheer. Don’t tear it down with frustration & anger.
🦄

*old picture* Possibly one of the most amazing things I have learned from #bodypositivepower by @bodyposipanda is that you do not need to have a healthy body to love yourself or be deserving of love, and if you do have a healthy body, that can look like any number of shapes. You can be healthy (eat intuitively, get exercise, fight off sicknesses, etc) at any size! You can be thin, fat, or anywhere in between and still be healthy!

The last few days have been rough. Mom has been low on spoons and short tempered. Any little thing has been irritating her or her setting her off. So I’ve been working over time. Mom says she loves that even if she just yelled, I have no fear of her and come up and force myself onto her. The more Mom fights me away the more calm and persistent I am (in these moment she wants nothing to do with me even though she needs me). Mom is thankful that I am so persistent because without me it would take a lot longer to calm down. It’s our weekend now. Mom is hoping to relax and refuel spoons. She hates being this on edge. .

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who commented on my post about going to London alone.
I’m pleased to report that I’m in one piece, and whilst going alone may not have been the wisest choice, I did enjoy myself at times!
I really struggled at times though, and pushed myself so hard that I was having back to back seizures that have only just begun to calm down a week later. I even lost the use in one arm temporarily🙄😯#heybrokenbodywhatgives
The whole trip has confirmed in my mind that an assistance dog would be a valuable addition to my life and hopefully something to work towards in the future. {pic: an all style but no substance bubble waffle}

Here is reality of the chronically ill girl: it’s not all filtered photos and smiles. When moms night consists of laying on the floor wrapped in her @bravesoulblankets next to my dog bed because she just can’t get comfortable in bed between joint and muscular pain as well as stomach pain and vomiting 😓 And it’s just the only thing that seems to work. Tonight she’s just now laying down to bed after an exhausting and somewhat frustrating night...laying down in my bed, not on the floor...unlike last night. Hopefully her body plays fair and allows her to sleep tonight after only getting about an hour last night total. Anti-Nausea meds thru port ✔️ pain meds ✔️ late nightly meds ✔️ And the fluffy Golden snuggles 🐶🐾✔️✔️Now...💤💤💤💤💤 #chronicpain #chronicpainsucks #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness #invisibledisease #invisibledisability #dysautonomia #pots #gastroparesis #feedingtube #tubefeeding #tubefed #tubie #tubielife #gjtube #malnutrition #mastcelldisease #mastcellactivationsyndrome #anaphylaxis #ehlersdanlossyndrome #ehlersdanlos #immunodeficiency #spoonie #fightlikeawarrior #sickfightsback #chronicloveclub

🐾💋🐕 Everyday You Save my Life! 🔈Sound On🔈 I’m so thankful for Colt he is such a amazing animal, he has saved my life so many times and in more ways than one. He was even on the news for it one time, isn’t that crazy (Link in the bio) Tonight we did some touch up training to make sure he still knows exactly how to block my head from hitting hard surfaces during a seizure. He does this in a specific way that is both safe for me and for him and we check that he is doing it right very often. This is used in the case of a emergency only, if a seizure was some how triggered and I was not in a safe place prior to it. This is not a task used on a daily basis, he normally instinctually alerts 30mins-2hrs before a seizure even occurs and I can take medication to prevent it but be in a safe place just in case the medication does not work. With my severe Trumatic brain injury I am more susceptible to brain bleeds and so a hit to the head could be catastrophic. I have already had two brain bleeds caused by hitting my head since my original brain injury/bleed. Colt is a blessing in my life and has given me so much freedom and peace of mind. I hope this helps bring some awareness to Traumatic Bain Injury‘s (TBI’s) and Service dogs.

Hoping to get through the semester hospitalization free! Unfortunately, that didn’t happen last semester and even though my health is currently significantly worse, I now have Libs by my side to help me. Thankful for this crazy dude always being there to lick my tears away. This time last week I was in the hospital and I’m so thankful to be home. We found out more bad news during that hospitalization about my liver and a much needed surgery. Hopefully no hospitalizations or ER trips in the near future! Also, Liberty is almost 9 FREAKING MONTHS OLD.

October 21, 2008 swipe left...it was my 5th shoulder shoulder surgery; 4th surgery in 08'. Since this surgery was going to be more invasive, my parents & I had a "pre-surgery" fun day. Since we were already out of state for surgery we explored a bit. We went to Natural Bridge State Park, & accidentally almost hiked 4 miles straight up. We all had some sore muscles. We were very thankful for a ski lift down 😂 *
Surgery was yet another scapula muscle reattachment (rhomboids), labrum repair, & biceps tenodesis; 29 staples total. I was happy to get back home...again. Everything that makes me comfortable is at home. It's hard recovering in hotel rooms. I was also in school full time so I needed to recover as to not get behind in my classes. All of the surgery was getting old. It's good that I didn't know how mich more surgery was to come in my life. *
So the postop picture, it's laugh or cry. In front of the camera I smile. This was a very sarcastic smile. I felt horrible. There were a lot of tears & I was overwhelmed with school too. Constant medical is rough. It takes a lot of strength to put up with it all. People with EDS and people with other chronic medical conditions fight day in and day out. If you're healthy, never take your health for granted. *

BURNIN’ DOWN THE NOUSE... Doing whatever I need to do to get through. My body temperature regulation is even more temperamental when I’m experiencing opiate withdrawals like this... a wet face towel turned frosty in the freezer helps me ride them out.
Opioid withdrawal tips... anyone?

Hi, my name is Kalinda and I'm 32. I have aspburgers syndrome, it's an autism spectrum disability. Aspburgers syndrome  is an autstic spectrum disability that affects soical cues and soical interaction, people with this have difficulty expressing and showing emotions as well as reading other people's emotions. Also in a lot of cases. They can't pick up on social cues in social settings. It all depends on the severity  of the aspburgers. I also have anxiety  and depression as well as ADD. ADD is the medical abreviation for attention deficit disorder, it causes poor concentration, shortened attention span, coordination difficulties, and sort term memory loss. But long tem memory makes up for it. My anxiety attacks cause breathing difficulty and it feels like I'm being crushed from the inside out. Most times it's hard to explain my disabilities to most people and they are sometimes rude and judgemental about it .

This evening Matthew and I sat down together to watch the documentary @unrestfilm and boy did it ever hit close to home. It’s a documentary following a 28 year old PHD student whose life is upended when she gets sick one day and never gets better. She is eventually diagnosed with ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. While I don’t have ME/CFS I certainly do have a bunch of overlapping symptoms and can relate very much to many themes throughout the film. It’s so hard to go from someone whose constantly doing things - school, work, travel, fitness etc. to being someone who feels like they are watching it all happen on the sidelines. And I know the frustration of being told by countless doctors that it’s all in your head before you find the right doctor who decides to take you seriously. And I understand the desire to want to be well so badly but to also appreciate on such a deep level the life lessons you’ve learned and the person you’ve become since you woke up sick that day and didn’t get better. There’s a quote in the film that really resonates with me: “You have to be able to hold two things in your head. This illness destroyed my life. But what it showed me...I could never give that back.” •
Another thing that was discussed in Unrest that really hit me in the gut is how it’s easy for people to ignore an illness like this. It’s easy to not give it proper funding or for people to take it less seriously than other illnesses because it’s not a problem that is really there in your face. And that’s because when people are sick like this they are home in bed - it’s like they are missing from the world. You don’t see how bad it gets because those days are hidden. So the true impact of these chronic illnesses can be lost on society, doctors and organizations. •
Unrest is available for streaming on Netflix and I really recommend watching this film. It’s not easy to watch. It’s going to make you uncomfortable because you’re getting a front row seat to some very vulnerable, emotional and painful moments in people’s lives. But I think it’s important to know these people’s stories. It’s so impactful and powerfully done. 👏 #timeforunrest

Today we went to the dog park to do some training 🐕 and ended up stopping at the playground for some confidence, conditioning and trick training work! 🏰
Jasmine had a blast! 😂 she got the zoomies but thankfully behaved herself with some kids around (it was empty at first but the small family didn’t mind us being there haha).
———
The pictures are a series of our day today. The first shows Jasmine sitting in front of me wearing off duty gear. Behind her is the fence to the dog park. In the second, her paws are resting on a tire swing as she looks at the camera, panting slightly. The third shows Jasmine sitting in front of a short and narrow wooden hallway, with prices of thing plastic lining the sides. The last photo shows Jasmine laying on a flimsy black bridge, attention drawn on the camera.
———
Video descriptions: The first video show Jasmine staying, and then being called through a short wooden hallway with plastic linings. The second video shows Jasmine staying on a platform, then when called, crossing a flimsy black bridge to reach her called spot. The third shows Jasmine waiting, then being called down a short, green slide. The fourth shows Jasmine waiting, and being called through a wooden tunnel the last video shows Jasmine practicing some off leash obedience and tricks, such as back up, bow, and down.
———
Audio description:
Video one: “Okay, come!” *panting, gear clanging* “Yes!”
Video two: “Okay, come!” *panting, rubber squeaking* “Off. Yes!” *crunching* “Good job.”
Video three: “Jasmine! Okay, come!” *clattering* “Yes!” *laughing* “Hi! Yes.” *small treat crunch* “Good girl.”
Video four: “Okay, come!” *panting, clattering, sniffing* “Yes! Hi.” *treat crunching* “That’s my good girl.”
Video five: “Backup!” *small whine* “Back. Bow-“ *low bell chiming* “Down.”

Sign for Sign🔞 Make sure to swipe right at the end of each video for the next one. Here are three small videos taken from my long video about implementing signs in ERs and a law would be amazing to enforce the severity of invisible disabilities, to avoid abuse in ERs. If you have not yet, please sign my petition! The link is above on my profile. Thank you so much! ❤️
