1/13/15 was my partial thyroidectomy. The other 50% is going strong with no meds!! For anyone who has taken meds for their thyroid you know that is awful. The girl in the first photo downloaded the BBG guides and decided that if she felt terrible (fibro undiagnosed at that point) it wouldn’t be because she wasn’t taking care of her body. I am grateful for what I have gone through because it brought me to really.. WHO I am now. Shout out to all my thyroid warriors. #journey

Lyme disease makes even my fingers hurt. I'm in bad pain today. Plus I feel very "infection-y". Thrival CBD topical by @leef_organics has been my life savor. My spleen and liver hurt so bad it hurts to lay. Thrival is the only thing that has helped. I hate having Lyme disease. Please always wear tick repellent!

Twice cooked chicken livers, baby spinach and radish sprout salad with herb, spirulina, olive oil and red wine vinaigrette. Livers are coated in coconut flour, s & p, paprika, second bake with Dijon, red onion, garlic, basil or rosemary and drizzled with grass fd butter. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Help enrich your blood by adding nutrients and helping your body digest them. Folic acid, iron, b12, protein, copper, full spectrum b and vitamin c. My joint pain can sometimes increase with significant, sudden weather changes (Calgary's specialty) and I find adding pepper, garlic, paprkia and mustard to help warm my body up (as well as making food taste fantastic). I know, liver can be gross but it's affordable, nutrient dense and sustainable and this is a pleasant way to eat it. @sunworks_farm has some really beautiful local livers to those of you in Alberta. Add a little dandelion tea to finish :) #keto #bulletproofdiet #primaldiet #paleo #hflc #eatyourgreens #blooddeficiency #qi #yangfood #chickenlivers #bloodbuilding #heds #canadiancooking #spirulina #microgreens #eatorganic #eatlocal #aip #chronicfatigue #chronicpain #brainfood #chlorophyll

As Mary Frey says, "Do what you think you can't do!" My health may be sliding towards the drain (I woke up in tons of pain, almost fainted, then vomited shortly after) but despite that, I made it through my 3-hour Psych class, and my homework is done before 6:30pm and I am proud of myself. #spoonie #spoonieproblems #fatigue possible #gastroparesis #irondeficiency #ibs #jointpain #fibromyalgia #fibro probably #pots #potsie maybe #lupus #disabled #disability #butyoudontlooksick #sijointinstability #spooniestrong #college #thefreylife #dowhatyouthinkyoucantdo #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicallyill

“No rest is worth anything except the rest that is earned." Though often overlooked, rest and recuperation are vital parts of exercise and strength training. If you keep pushing yourself, lifting every day and doing other workouts, you’ll really be doing more harm than good. But rest that is EARNED has no better feeling! Some people are serious athletes, and push themselves to the limits. Others are just trying to regain mobility from and injury or disease. The daily fight and struggle is WORTH IT! Keep pushing yourself, do more everyday and when its time to rest it will be SO WORTH IT! #startlivingagain How do you incorporate rest into your routine? Share with others so we can encourage each other! . . . . #arthritis #arthritissucks #myroadback #arthritisawareness #chronicpain #injuryrecovery #chronicpainawareness #chronicpainfighter #injury #injuryfree #injuryrehab #injuryrecovery #recoverywarrior #recoverylife #nomoreexcuses #nolimits #noexcuses #recoveryrun #jointpain #jointpains #jointpainrelief #jointpainprevention #kneeinjury #kneepain #kneepainrelief #kneepainbegone #joint #knee #copperbodyshop #compressionsleeves

Demo Day3: Back to it after a weekend of recovery & bff time! Closet framing down, subfloor removed. I’m certain it was built to withstand the apocalypse. It’s the only explanation I have for the nearly 50 nails that were holding down that little subfloor. 🤯 Slow process without damaging the original bare hardwood underneath. Just need to fill the holes now. Cleaned up beautifully! 🤘 #demo #bathroomdemo #closetdemo #bathroomrenovation #renovation #diy #oldscarybathroom #sweetbabyjesusnails #cantisnotanoption #therapy #persevere #neversettle #alwaysforward #paincansuckit #strength #faith #autoimmune #chronicillness #chronicpain #youcandoit #goyourownway #warrior #fight

Happy 13th MS Anniversary to me! Three years ago my daughter wrote this celebrating my diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. A lot of people might wonder why I celebrate having MS. I don't necessarily celebrate having MS but I celebrate LIFE and I celebrate that having MS made me want to truly live life to the fullest. While reading this today, I realized that I have an obligation to share my story and my testimony. People need to know that you can make it through anything. Every day is not always the best for me, but God allowed this because He knew I was strong enough to be a walking testimony. Twice the MS monster came to take my legs in these 13 years with the last time July 2016. But guess what, I came back both times and showed MS that you messed with the wrong girl . If you know someone with MS or a chronic illness, help me celebrate my anniversary by giving them hug and let them know they are loved. #multiplesclerosis #mssucks #msfamily #msfighter #mswarrior #mswontstopme #chronicpain #chronicillness

new blog post // I get asked a lot about how I read so much, and when I got to thinking about it, I found that I had some sneaky tips. (like how to get really good books for dirt cheap. ) but all in all, reading more - or just doing more of what you brings you joy in general - is just about honoring your true desires. if that means staying in on a Friday night for one more chapter or saving extra pennies for a trip abroad, follow your heart my friend

Cascade Falls in the snow. @gienoval and I looked at each other, mouths a little agape. Then back to the view. It was the experience of walking into our own private winter wonderland, with the falling snow quickly covering tracks of any other hikers today. We've been here 3-4x in the last 3yrs. Each season and time is unique. Always takes my breath away. This was our first time seeing it while it's snowing heavily. Dreamlike. bd ° ° ° ° #cascadefalls #missionbc #explorebc #bcoutdoors #coupleswhohike #winterwonderland #snowstorm #waterfalls #snowywonderland #winterwaterfall #getoutdoors #outdoortherapy #freshairtherapy #wintertherapy #mentalhealth #chronicpain #hellobc #pnwmountains #pnwonderland #snowphotography #snowcovered #welovethisplace #anxiety

Sound On! LOL I threw my phone down the slide from the very top of the jungle gym and asked Colt to get it, so he flew down the slide after it and picked it up and brought it back to me, accidentally dropping it on the way and then handing it to me up the vertical ladder. Life Proof cases are important to us for these exact reasons. What a sweet helper. #servicedog #tbi #traumaticbraininjury #fighter #thisislove #ichoosejoy #youtuber #thelordismystrength #ichoosejesus #heis >I #heisgreaterthani #servicedogcolt #workingdog #servicedogteam #reallifedory #justkeepswimming #trickdog #invisibledisability #spoonie #syncope #chronicpain #struckdownbutnotdestroyed #tonicclonicseizures #survivor #herodog #rawfeddog #blessed #donotdistractservicedogs #hypoglycemic #chronicovercomer

Quick update... The past two weeks have been really bad and painful. But the companionship of my lovely bella has helped me get through it with a smile... Yesterday and today we're actually low symptom days and I'm very grateful for that!! I go back to Standford Tuesday to see what the next step is for me and my journey... Love all my supporters thank you for keeping up with my journey and reminding me that we are not alone and will get through this together 🤝🤝️ #spoonie #pain #chronicillness #selflove #disability #eds #csfleak #chronicpain #fatigue #lonely #servicedog #doggie #companion #greatful #lowsymptomday

#motd ...for my #therapy session. I think I keep my therapist filled in pretty well. And I love how honest I can be with her. I let myself freak out. I allow myself to sulk or sit quietly, I cry, have shuddering sobs, I laugh, I show her pictures from my Instagram if I went on an adventure.... and after I showed her the aquarium and beach shots, she mentioned that she did her thesis on #ecotherapy ; she told me she noticed I lit up and calmed down. She is encouraging me to go to the beach more. And go outside more. And to challenge myself to go places alone more... but baby steps. She offered to have some of our sessions walking around outside with her. I'm nervous since I don't know the area and I'm scared of bad things happening. But maybe I'll try it sometime. I also told her about my going to the chiropractor once a week as well. And when my chiropractor clears me for activity, I'll join a gym and do some #aquaticexercise , which should be easier on my already aching bod. I don't want #fibromyalgia to hold me back from physical activity. Or work. I want to see if I can work through the pain, somehow. But also not damage myself or overexert myself, or I'll get sick/freak out. ...anyway. After I graduate from aquatic exercise, I'll be signing up for a women's self defense class. Also, my chiropractor, gym and pharmacy are all in the same strip mall area, close to my neighborhood. So I'm more comfortable being alone along those strip malls. Fuck you #agoraphobia . You're not stealing my life anymore. ....for much longer, at least. .....#babysteps . . . #bipolar #gad #panicdisorder #mdd #hyperthyroidism #mentalhealth #mentalillness #recovery #browneyes #smokeyeye #trichotillomania #chronicpain #exercise
