  • When you have the energy to cook, double your batch. You're cooking anyway so you might as well make enough to freeze or to have left overs for a few days. When you get home from the grocery store, clean as much as your produce as you can (or do it when you have enough energy). Salad greens washed and ready to go is a huge time and energy saver (cleaning lettuce is not in my top 10 things I love so doing it once for the week makes me happy). Most importantly, on those days when you feel not so great or flat out terrible, take the help from the ready or easy make food section. Canned veges or proteins like salmon and beans are super easy and better than nothing or ordering in. I'm not talking frozen dinners because those cone with tons of salt and add ins you can't control which can make us feel worse. Bottom line, we have to eat. We feel better when we eat well so we need to find a way to do that on a regular basis. It's my number one goal right now. 😊🍌🍳🍎 #fightingarthritis #osteoarthritis #arthritis #ibd #spoonie #costochondritis #lifewitharthritis #chondromalacia #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicillnesswarrior #seasonalaffectivedisorder #anxiety #spooniewarrior #workingitout #inthekitchen #heathyeating #foodprep #planningahead #helpinthekitchen
  • It’s Easy to Forget Support Is Available, Especially When We’re so Weighted Down by Our Own Struggle⁠ ⁠ Can happiness be defined?⁠ ⁠ I was recently reminded that happiness can be found when we lean on each other. After a period of feeling buried beneath an ongoing health struggle, it was the voices from others enduring similar trials that ultimately aided my recovery.⁠ ⁠ On a seemingly normal summer day, I noticed that a distinct pain had developed in my lower abdomen/pelvic region. After brushing off the discomfort in an attempt to get on with my busy day, my roommate found me curled up on the couch that night in audible discomfort. She sat with me as I described my symptoms and speculated possible causes. Cramps? Cyst? Regardless, she said, you should see a doctor.⁠ ⁠ Read it here:⁠ ⁠ #endometriosis #pcos #endometriosisawareness #chronicillness #endo #endowarrior #infertility #ivf #chronicpain #spoonie #fibromyalgia #womenshealth #adenomyosis #in #endosisters #invisibleillness #fertility #health #anxiety #hysterectomy #k #fibroids #ttc #endosister #depression #pain ⁠
  • For some reason I take a lot of pride in my hair. I will use my small amounts of energy to style my hair, because I feel put together when my hair is done. I feel like my life is a little less crazy when my hair is done. If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I only wash my hair once a week. I swear by dry shampoo and curled hair. I usually have straight hair for two days and curly hair for the rest of the week. It might sound silly that I put so much time and energy into something that doesn’t β€œmatter”, but it makes me feel better about myself, and finding that thing is important! So I think it’s worth the 20 minutes I spend on my hair, just to make me feel like my life is slightly put together. What’s your thing that you do, that makes you feel put together?
  • Don’t act cocky and shit, and like your life is the shit and act like you’re invisible, because life has a funny way of knocking you down to remind you that you aren’t in charge of the things you can’t control #chronicpain #chronicillness #humbleyourself
  • I am embarking on what I’d like to call a new journey. I’d like to call it that, it’s just all so overwhelming right now. Yes, I’ve lived with symptoms of autonomic dysfunction for 30 years now. However, as each year passes, my body degenerates more and more. Now, I have to work twice as hard to do the simplest of things, and some things my body can’t handle at all. I saw my neurologist on Friday. I had to ask to get my ANS test results. I read through them when I got home and oh my. Knowledge is power folks. I don’t have all the answers I need, but I have enough proof that I can stay pretty stable with my autonomic failure, I just need to figure out my new lifestyle. One day at a time. Just don’t give up on your life. Sometimes you have to rely on yourself to provide answers that will yield results. πŸ’š #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatiguesyndrome #dysautonomia #dysautonomiaawareness #autonomicdysfunction #autonomicneuropathy #autonomicdisorder #spoonie #spooniesupport #spoonielife #chronicillnessawareness #chronicillnesswarrior #lifestylechanges #autoimmunedisease #keepfighting #staystrong
  • Two posts in one day, yep. (Super sorry if this makes no sense btw) So today was a super great day, I got a brand new memory foam bed at an estate sale for $50!? My stepmom got a whole new dining room set and they were so nice and gave my fiancΓ© and I an end table for free. I had drunk a Starbucks bottled Frappuccino because they are delish and I thought I would have eaten sooner than I did because of the yard sale, and then the caffeine put me into such an anxious state πŸ™ƒ so currently super panicky! I hadn’t had a problem with my anxiety being this bad until about 2 and a half weeks ago when I drank caffeine which was a normal amount pre flare up and it almost sent me over the edge I freaked out so hard and now again today. Ugh! β€’ #lymedisease #mentalhealthawareness #lymementalhealth #lymediseaseawareness #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #anxiety #panicattack
  • Working outside this evening. The temperature is perfect. I'm lovin' the cooler temps of fall. Bring your work outside if you possibly can. It helps to clear your head and just feels really good. If you can't actually take your work outside, take your breaks outside. Take a walk or a roll, soak up some sun and recharge. 😊 #workoutside, #takeastroll, #refreshingautumn, #fallisintheair, #getsomereshair, #getoutside, #teenangst, #clearyourhead, #soakupsomesun, #homebasedbusiness, #remoteworking, #patiotime, #careerwoes, #quietsundayevening, #natureheals, #acnlifecoach, #findpeace, #alonetime, #chronicpain, #careercoaching, #chronicallyill, #southernutah, #teenlifecoach, #spinabifidastrong, #chronicillness
  • Another great weekend of presenting AND learning myself from Dr Andrew Heyman (USA)and Nathan Rose (Aus). Got lots of tips on the latest in integrative medical treatments for CIRS (Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome), mould illness, mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS) and mitochondrial disfunction. Excited to incorporate some of these new strategies into my own patients treatments.πŸ€—πŸ’™ . . . #a4m #redefiningmedicine #metagenics #naturopathamina #education #integrativemedicine #naturopatheducation #cirs #drandrewheyman #lyme #lymedisease #chronicillness #herbalmedicine #plantmedicine

  • ⭐I have some exciting news to share!!!! I was selected to receive a Young Living starter kit through there sisters in need fund! I have always been intrigued about essential oils, but never really did my research or tried any. A friend of mine reached out a while back and offered to send me some to try. All I have to loose is pain, so I figured why not?πŸ’ She made me a pain cream and it was amazing!πŸŽ‰ Immediately my research began. What are essential oils even? Essential oils are aromatic, concentrated plant extracts that are carefully obtained through steam distillation, cold pressing, or resin tapp. Basically they are the life force of plants! I have been researching the benefits of each oil and what terpenes are in them. Yes, terpenes!! Plants, like cannabis, have terpenes! I have been incorporating more and more oils with specific terpenes that help me with cannabis and I have been loving them! Going on two weeks ago I received my kit. It is such a blessing to be able to try these oils! I have not known of so many other plants that can be beneficial for my body until now, and it's amazing to experience. For instance lavender oil has linalool! Linalool is my go to for vaping and does wonders for my body, so I have been incorporating lavender daily. I have also made my own pain cream, I ingest frankincense daily, I have been using digize and ginger for my nausea, and so much more! Of course the smell is great and I'll be honest, I love being able to have a "perfume"/"air freshener" again in a way with oils! Its nice to have a scent that doesn't hinder my breathingπŸ™ŒπŸ˜Š So what does this all mean?! With the kit and now that I myself LOVE and BACK these essential oils...I am officially a YOUNG LIVING REP!πŸ™ŒπŸŽ‰ You can find the link in my bio! I will never try to "sell" you anything, but I am here to share with you what is helping me, and essential oils are in fact helping me. So if you want to try some of this plant magic the link is in my bio! Have you tried essential oils? If you have any questions leave them down below or send me a message! Sending love warriors and thank you for all your love and supportπŸ’šπŸŒ±πŸ’š
  • Sometimes, there are days when it feels like my illness defines me, but lately I’ve been trying to shake off this all-encompassing label. Instead, I’ve started saying yes, my illness is a part of me, but it no longer β€œconsumes" me. My mentality and perspective has been changing (in large part to the meditation teacher training I’m completing with @chill_out_chi!), and I’m beginning to no longer label myself as a someone with a dis-ease. I'm learning that:⁠ ⁠ The less I identify with my illness, the easier it is to heal. ⁠ ⁠ The less I identify with my illness, the easier it is to become the person I know I can be. ⁠ ⁠ xx⁠ ------------⁠ #lymedisease #lymediseaseawareness #lymewarrior #lymediseasewarrior #chroniclyme #lymebrain #chronicmigraine #chronicillness #chronicfatigue #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicfatiguewarrior #potssyndrome #vasovagalsyncope #chronicbabe #invisibleillness #chronicillnesswarrior

Last day of the #StrongMobileFree challenge. My workouts were vastly different from the challenge workouts because of how I train and my goals, but I really worked the mindset portion. . Today is about making commitments. In the past, I’d train hard for several months then quit. The thing that is different this time is my mindset. In the past, it wasn’t something that was that important to me. The only thing I cared about was the physical results, but I’ve learned that there’s so much more to this journey. In order to succeed, there has to be a behavioral change. In order to make that change, you have to address the root of that behavior. I’ve learned that a lot of my behavioral patterns have to deal with my mindset. I’m impatient and when things don’t happen according to my timeline, I bounce. But this journey is a process and it does take time and patience and commitment are mandatory for success. . Commitments... Today: Mindfulness Week: Positivity Month: Patience Year: Me . Today’s commitment to mindfulness is about being mindful with my movements, breathing, words, and actions. How better to practice mindful movements than to do some animal flow. I’ve gotten better at side kick thrus and I can even hold the position...I’m definitely more mobile and stronger. BTW...though my face looks like I’m mad at the world, I’m not lol. . . . . . #sunday #sundayfunday #workout #fitness #fitspo #gym #gymrat #gymjunkie #gymlife #pcos #chronicillness #spoonie #animalflow #bodyweightflow #flow #mindfulmovements #health #weightloss #cantstopwontstop #nodaysoff #bodyweighttraining #mobility #progressnotperfection #trusttheprocess #mindset #commitment #docjenfit #24hourfitness
  • πŸ€”What to wear to the doctorπŸ‘ . Our quest to discover what's going on with our body continues... Going to see a new specialist today. We wanted to show off what we usually wear to the doctors. . "What you wear to the doctor. Okay you got a hiding hood with a bell on it. A dress that you can unbutton like this [press studs. shows unbuttoning dress. Simple black crop top underneath]. And don't forget to put on some undies. Then you can be comfortable when the doctor examines your bits. And some colourful shoes. Oh, and don't forget my cane [goes and gets cane, then poses]." . . #chronicillness #invisableillness #chronicpain #dissociativeidentity #spoonie #dysautonomia #dissociativeidentitydisorder #babewithamobilityaid #potssyndrome #hypermobilitysyndrome #eds #heds #fashionista #connectivetissuedisorder #ehlersdanlossyndrome #bodypositive
  • Honestly, I did not expect this kind of recognition as one of the awardees for the Golden Globe Annual Awards for Outstanding Filipino Achievers because I was just happy inspiring other people, pushing them to their limits or gaining their confidence because of me. You see, I would like to call myself an β€œaccidental entrepreneur.” As a wife and mother by choice, and a doctor by profession, I would like to believe that my being an entrepreneur was merely by chance, as venturing into the beauty and fashion industry was a move fuelled by my passion, which later on, morphed into a personal mission to empower men and women to be comfortable in their own skin. The story of L'care is as much a personal story of yours truly, Dr. Lyn Sito. Allow me then to take you to a trip down memory lane as I re-travel the timeline of the past few years which have become the starting point of L’Care as a thriving skin care brand. In 2015, bedridden, after suffering from a second stroke, which left me with right side paralysis and partial blindness, brought about by Takayasu’s Arteritis, a rare auto-immune disease that attacks major blood vessels in the body, I was at my lowest ebb. I was in such a horrible emotional state that looking at the mirror became an exercise in self-pity and self-loathing. Confined to a wheelchair, with my once smooth and sleek face now peppered with pimples, and my once svelte and slim body now carrying about 40 pounds more on its frame due to steroid-induced weight gain, I could not help but wonder how many more people out there are suffering from the same insecurities that zap us of our energy to enjoy and live life to the fullest. And akin to a β€œEureka” moment, I came to an epiphany that I need not waste my suffering because there is beauty in suffering ..... And to the only wise and sovereign God, thank You for setting-up my setback into a comeback. Thank you for turning my suffering into a major blessing. To God be the glory! #chronicallypositivelybeautiful #PWDButNeverADisability #draLynBattleAgainstTakayasu

  • πŸŽ— β€’ I’ve been mostly silent about my illness for fear of judgment because it is so misunderstood, but when I do talk with people about my endometriosis and my thoracic endometriosis, I am usually met with a response along the lines of, β€œwow, I had no idea it could be that bad,” or β€œI didn’t know it could affect anything besides your reproduction, especially your breathing!” I never knew the extent this disease could go until it happened to me. β€’ Now I’m 26, basically house bound and unable to work and fully care for myself. I’ve watched myself deteriorate into a completely different person. This disease is lifelong, chronic, and has no cure. β€’ I’ve created @the_endo_chronic_ills to document my journey and give people a glimpse into what it’s like to live with a chronic illness; also to spread awareness for early diagnosis and proper treatment. β€’ Head over to @the_endo_chronic_ills if you want to learn more, if you or someone you know struggles with endo, or you just want to follow my journey. See you there🌻 β€’
