Seeing results is a great reminder of why I go to the #gym daily. #exercise also helps with the nerve pain from #fibromyalgia greatly. #gymmotivation #fitness #fitnessmotivation #chronicpain #chronicillness #autoimmunedisease #autoimmune #invisibleillness looks like me 💪👍
Right, time for another attempt at my assignment!🙈The cold weather is really pulling me back this week and my moods are dropping too. But I'm trying to hold on as best I can! One of the hardest thing I think when you have Fibromyalgia is the inner voices... Over the last 11 years or so that I've had it I've really learnt to try and quieten those negative voices and push through. Sure you can't always ignore them, you can't always push through but more often than not, when I've ignored them, I've gone on to feel much better and actually get stuff done. For me personally I think alot of it is down to forgiveness and self-love. Like actually giving a shit about myself and being proud of how far I've come despite this chronic illness. And I am reminded again how lucky I am with the people around me who stick by me. #megablessed!!❤️ #spoonie #fibromyalgia #spoonielovevibes #spoonieadventures #assignment #openuni #y032

Good morning! Crazy early commute on a Wednesday morning means I'm in the office today. The fact I'm awake, showered, dressed, and semi coherant before 5 am is a Christmas miracle come early! #fatandhappy #thick #blacknwhite_perfection #dark #earlyam #legalizethunderthighs #morning #girlswithtattoos #inkedchicks #bbw #bbwelite #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #bodypositive #radicalbodylove #lovetheskinyourin #curvy #girlswithglasses #bigandblunt #girl #redheads #greeneyedgirl #glasses #fibromyalgia #curves #spooniesisters
Breakfast has definitely been the most difficult! So happy for @puretraditionsfoods Instant AIP Farina! 😍 I used coconut milk and added unsweetened coconut flakes, cinnamon and strawberries! 😋

I absolutely hate when I get a bad pain flare. I went on a cruise and had fun for 7 days but am really paying for it now. This is the worst flare i have ever had. Pretty much pain from head to toe. I have been having migraines alot recently. The funny thing is when i got my hair braided in vanuatu it took the pain completely away. Not sure what that is about. #fibromyalgia #fibrowarrior #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniestrong #chronicillness #chronicpain #arthritis #medical #pain #quotestoliveby #quotestags #quotes #empowered #inspirationalquotes #fibro #fibrosupport #fibrorecovery #aussie #mumlife #brisbanemums #stayathomemum #stayathomemom #stayathomemums #painflare
Almost 22lb gone in one month! By no means an easy ride to get here but I knew it wouldn't be and it's worth it 😊. I am grateful for the jumpstart the balloon has given me. Five months and 40-80lb to go🤓 #gastricballoon #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #health #fitness #fitmom #fitfam #pcos #fibromyalgia #chronicpain #goals #progress #motivation #myfitnesspal #mfp
I didn't want to get out of my warm bed this morning but then I thought of all my friends who aren't able to get up and sweat it out.💦 . So I hauled my booty 🍑out of bed. I am downing my magic Go Go Juice so I can punch out this workout in your honor my friends. . I consider it a huge blessing to be able to get up and sweat it out every morning. . 2 years ago I could barely even get out of bed because my body and joints were so stiff. I really thought that was the way I was going to live the rest of my life. . Then one day I woke up and made up my mind that I was not going to let Fibromyalgia control my life anymore. . I was not going to be the victim to this disorder any longer. I was tired of being depressed all the time and feeling like I couldn't physically do any of the activities I used to enjoy. . So I changed my way of thinking and I told myself I was going to make a change in my life. I told myself I was going to commit to 21 days of exercise and following a nutrition plan no matter what Fibromyalgia threw my way. . And you know what? I did it! I proved to myself that I could do it if I just believed in myself and told myself every day that I COULD do it. . We can do hard things! You just have to want to make a positive change bad enough. . When you're ready, I will be here to help you! . #fibromyalgia #fibrowarrior #fibrofighter #autoimmunedisease
Remember Cat’s Cradle? Remember the couple on the plane, I think they were diplomats, whom the narrator described, according to Vonnegut’s fictional religion, as duprasses? He defined a Love that was so intense, the couple’s ties became impossible to sever, even by their children. I’ve read the book twice, and both times, that scene on the plane has been the one to stick with me most. I know why. It’s because I’ve somehow found mine. I didn’t try, he was an old friend and we happened to fall In love. But, he’s it. My duprass. Do you know how difficult I worry it must be to love someone who’s constantly physically ill? Or who struggles so much with mental illness? I’m reassured regularly that all of those things are trite in comparison to how vast, yet deep our love is. When you have your duprass, no external hardships can break you. One typically dies within a week of each other. Yes, it’s a fictional word, but it means something in real-world practice. People who claim you don’t “learn” from reading fiction must be so jaded, they’re blind to those of us who live a storybook life. Joe and I live more of a modern fairy tale, one wrought with health and financial struggles. But with the same dreamy air as Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella, we trudge through together, seeking out those diamonds, those moments of joy in life. For 15+ years now, he’s been mine, and each year, I somehow find that I love him more. (So, how many posts am I going to write about my Jostepa? As many as I please!!!) #duprass #kurtvonnegut #kurtvonnegutjr #catscradle #truelove #depersonalizationdisorder #majordepressivedisorder #classicliterature #depression #fibromyalgia #cfs #cfsme #chronicfatiguesyndrome #systemicexertionintolerancedisease #anxietydisorder #agoraphobia #ptsd #gad #generalizedanxietydisorder #fairytale #merrychristmasyafilthyanimal
Up to get the kids ready for school. Still in pain, mostly bladder and deep tissue pain everywhere. A simple surgery isn't so simple when you have multiple chronic illnesses. So thankful to my parents, Michele Morris and Michael Morris, and Spencer Folkerts for helping me so much.
In bed trying: 🍵1) to make my mess appear relatively good so it looks good on my Instagram feed, 🍵2) not to feel sorry for myself. I have a cold + #endometriosis pain + #fibromyalgia pain. ⚠️To be honest, I should not be complaining as my body allowed me to do loads of exciting things recently, so I kind of new this was coming. Anyway, having a healthy & pain-free body must be amazing. #nospoonsleft #chronicpain #fatigue

Last night's 😴 Received the news last night that Mama is not progressing as well as we hoped (I could see that); and, the physician is starting another medication and she will likely be hospitalized through Christmas. I need to go home for a few days!😢 #Listentoyourbody #painsomnia #autoimmunedisease #fibromyalgia #loveyourbody #sleepdeprived #unrefreshingsleep #restlessnights #sleepheals #needmoresleep #chronicillness #chronicpain #healerhealthyself #viciouscycle
It’s easy to get lost in being a patient in a seemingly never-ending round of medical appointments and tests and drugs and physio and all the rest of it. But you are a person too.

Sitting at home wanting to be a functioning adult but my body won't stop the spasms. I think the worst thing about having Chronic conditions is the fact that people assume you are unreliable, or can't do your job, or are lazy. Every day my biggest fight is with this image that has been created of me. Having an invisible illness is fucking hard, maybe if I wrapped myself in bandages it would be taken seriously. #Fibromyalgia #Endometriosis #CFS
I love butternut squash soup 🍜 but hate having to chop the hard squash. Fortunately, I have my handy tool, which makes life easier. The ingredients I use to serve 8 are: 2 red onions, 2 carrots, 4 cloves garlic, 2 sticks celery, 1 red chilli, 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, 2kg butternut squash (can leave skin on), 2 litres of good chicken or vegetable stock. Before softening all ingredients, except squash, in light olive oil, I fry about 16 sage leaves in the oil and remove before softening the rest of the veg. Then mix veg with squash and stock and allow to simmer for about an hour before blending. . . . . . . #cfs #me #chronicfatigue #adrenalfatigue #fatigue #cfsrecovery #healing #mindset #healthylifestyle #healthyhabits #exhausted #healthychoices #invisibleillness #chronicpain #depression #autoimmunedisease #pain #tired #gratitude #naturalhealing #strength #chronicillness #autoimmune #sleep #rest #fibromyalgia #drained #brainfog #soup #healthyfood
Today it’s cold, this morning I had my PIP reassessment at home, I had the same lady who assessed me 18 months ago, she was understanding and asked intelligent questions. Yet I’m still nervous and have a nerve wracking wait to see if I loose my high rate benefit. Right now I’m in a lot of pain and stiff as hell so I’m going to sleep for several hours. My man is coming over later so I’m looking forward to the company and cheering up to help break through the anxiety of this morning #spoonieproblems #spoonie #fibromyalgia #chronicpain #sacroiliacjointdysfunction #chronicfatigue #cfs #fibrowarrior
I don't eat pasta, but this little fella is my substitute. Last year I got a lonely 2. OK for a first attempt at growing it and this vine has grown from the seeds saved from last year #lovefoodhatewaste So far I have tripled my success. Spaghetti squash is a fabulous replacement and a thousand times better for me and my body. As always, a little chilli doesn't go astray sprinkled on top either 😆 . . . #organic #eatclean #vegetablegarden #seedling #urbangarden #greenthumb #guthealth #fitfood #lowcarb #healthyeating #vegetarian #homegrown #lobotany #whole30 #backyardgarden #spaghettisquash #marketgarden #gardening #rheumatoidarthritis #invisibleillness #gardenbed #fibromyalgia #permaculture #growyourown #gardenlovers #sustainableliving #growsomethinggreen #companionplanting #thehappygardeninglife
There's also another side of my "art". A bit darker and uneasy. #art #practice #instaart #painting #watercolours #watercolor #dark #ptsd #bpd #fibromyalgia #chronicillness
