Had an occipital nerve block today. As soon as we were driving out of the parking lot I felt some relief. As the quick acting-meds wear off and I wait for the long acting meds to kick in itโ€™s not feeling so awesome. But I knew that was coming, so here we are.
I am already preparing for fighting the insurance company about paying for the nerve block. And called to get another med sent from the specialty pharmacy. And called to pay another bill. And submitted for copay assistance for that med. and scheduled another procedure after finally getting the insurance preauthorization for it. If you all only knew how much bandwidth I spent trying to get my treatments scheduled and paid for. And I have โ€œgoodโ€ insurance through my husbandโ€™s employer. There has to be a better way. #spoonie #migraine #occipitalneuralgia #cervicogenicheadache #arthritis #rheum #arthritissucks #healthcare #chroniclife #ChronicMom

Just got back home from a dance less with my dear friend @littlebeastfromthenortheast โค I decided to take this class because I LOVE TO DANCE! It makes me happier than words can explain and I also wanted to get more comfortable in my body.

Even though the chronic pain was eating away at my hip flexors, lower back, and basically my entire lower body, I made the most of class ๐Ÿ˜Š I always thank my lucky stars I am a former athlete and used to being in pain (thanks, rugby โคโคโค) because I'm able to tune out the pain in moments like this.

Anyway, the class is called Chairlesque, it's super fun, and I may or may not have a video to show you all at the end of the session ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Pardon my absence yโ€™all, but Iโ€™ve been over here working like a mad woman on all the different things in my life, and sometimes loving and caring for yourself means that every now and again, somethings gotta give, and for the last lil but it was IG.
But Iโ€™m back, and hoping to be even better than before!
New energy, new outlook, more love for yโ€™all (I didnโ€™t even know that was possible bc I fucking love the ๐Ÿ’ฉ out of you amazing amazing souls) and most surprisingly more love for myself! I have kinda fallen in love with myself guys. Maybe not 100% but I see and acknowledge the good first. I never have done that before.
This little hiatus was so transformative. This may be my entry for @blueridgehemp #brhselfcaresunday31, but this is so much more than that. This is a feeling and a transformation Iโ€™ve waited 23 years for ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป #gratitude doesnโ€™t even begin to cover it. Thank you to everyone who has supported me on my journey through life so far (regardless of how long youโ€™ve journeyed with me, youโ€™ve made a difference in my life ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป)
Love and light to you beautiful and amazing souls out there ๐Ÿ˜˜

Sometimes we get comfy and nap together
CFS hitting me hard lately, no matter how much rest or sleep I get I'm just plain exhausted
Had a bad physical therapy appt last week, so I've been feeling down. But I'm grateful to my friends and family that have reached out and tried to cheer me up
I'm still alive so I just gotta keep going

I did my first workout today for my muscle to mind focus, also leg day 3x a week is goals, I have to say im already feeling sore lol.
.
.
.
Ive begun to tell people I want to do body building shows or just 1 show. Idk however i feel after the first. Not one person said "oh you can't" or "it wont last". Which is crazy because in 2014 people shouted from the rooftops I'd be fat forever. Life is crazy. For real going to do a show one day though.
.
.
.
Also NO I do not want to sell your crazy wrap things, sell shakes, "coach" ppl, or whatever else is out there. I only support what I use. And I don't use any of those things. K thanks stop messaging me about it. Byeeeeee.

You can see my heating pad power on & off button right there because I'm in an awful flare, sadly.
_
No clue when it will end... I never know..
_
But my boyfriend. Oh my gosh.
My life saver, my joy.
_
After being together for over a year now, he finally decided to show me that he has kept EVERYTHING so far.๐Ÿ˜ญโค
_
From the cup i used on our first date too over 20 movie tickets ever๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
_
I don't know how he loves me so much with me being so bed ridden sometimes, and or grumpy from the pain...
Never give up the people who truly express their never ending love for you. It's hard to find.โค

Day 2 of #MultipleHereditaryExostosesAwarenessWeek...let's talk tumors! I know I don't LOOK sick, but there are many, many tumors in this picture! These tumors, also called osteochondromas can be quite the nuisance, as they can get "stuck" on muscles, tendons, and nerves, limiting range of motion. They also have a higher chance of turning cancerous compared to the average person. When the osteochondroma start to cause more pain, it's time to get X-rays to make sure it hasn't grown as that would call for concern. Currently, I have tumors in both my ankle and my shoulder that I am trying to adapt to as the only treatment is surgical intervention. To find out more about what exactly an osteochondroma is and some fun facts about MHE, head to the link in my bio to check out my video explaining it all ๐Ÿ’œ

I'm flaring (again). I've been busy. I've been pushing back. But it's come for me. I feel like I'm being pulled apart by meat hooks. And the migraine aura has dancing lights and sparklers in my eyes. I'm feeling beat down. And maybe a little hopeless. @spoonies_united helped me. ๐Ÿ’š She reminded me how strong I am in spite of the pain. I'm resting up so I have spoons ๐Ÿฅ„๐Ÿฅ„๐Ÿฅ„ to see Hamilton on Saturday with @mystic_burrito. #fibroflare #migraines #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonielicious #fibrowarrior #blackandwhitephotography #feministselfie #butyoudontlooksick #depression #ptsd #anxiety

So, today's injection was a no go. I woke up this morning and it literally took 20 minutes to get out of bed and into the bathroom. This whole threw-my-back-out thing was more serious than I thought. Today was a rough and painful day. So I cancelled my appointment for today. I go see my pain clinic doctor tomorrow (good timing) and then I'll reschedule my injections. Tough day overall though! **partner page** @mental.health.awareness_

Jasmine was super excited to be back on the job and was pretty much perfect today ๐Ÿ’•I was worried she'd be off, but she was amazing with responding to cues, ignoring distractions and tasking (and carrying things like her water dish when I needed the help!)
Also! ๐Ÿ‘ข She is wearing a single bootie. This is because her nail's quick is still exposed due to a nasty break she got on Friday ๐Ÿ˜ญ Vet says she'll be fine, but I'm keeping the boot (and sock) on for another day or two to be sure it doesn't get too dirty as it heals ๐Ÿพ Jasmine couldn't care less, but she does keep trying to lick it ๐Ÿ˜‚
โ€”โ€”โ€”
The pictures are a series of our day at school. The first photo shows Jasmine sitting in front of me on the sidewalk all geared up. She has a single bootie on her front right paw. The second photo shows Jasmine standing next to me, holding a plastic water dish in her mouth as she looks up at me
