𝙼𝙾𝚅𝙴𝙼𝙴𝙽𝚃 𝚁𝙾𝚄𝚃𝙸𝙽𝙴𝚂 𝚃𝙷𝙰𝚃 𝙷𝙴𝙻𝙿 𝙼𝙴✨⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I’ve been excited about this one as I have lots of physio routines & random moves that I use to help my EDS and I will be sharing these a lot more often from now on! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I thought I’d start off with the routine that REALLY helped me whilst travelling that my amazing osteopath @annietheosteo put together for me. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ This was meant for long journeys (mainly flights ) to help me not need 5 days recovery as soon as I arrived in Malaysia! However, this could also be used for sitting at a desk all day or just generally in life as we spend a lot of our time hunched over our phones/laptops etc. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ If you have any questions hit me up in the comments👇🏼 ⠀ ⠀ **if you have any worries or concerns about these exercises please consult a doctor. I am not, nor am I claiming to be, a medical professional and I am just sharing what worked & still does for me.
𝙿𝙰𝙸𝙽 𝙾𝚁 𝚂𝚈𝙼𝙿𝚃𝙾𝙼 𝚁𝙴𝙻𝙸𝙴𝙵 🤍 ⠀⠀ I feel like I constantly o̶v̶e̶r̶ share on my current pain relief, so I’m going to keep this post to 6 things I’m using currently to help with my chronic pain. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 1.The Reviber Zen Physio ⠀⠀ I did a story on this recently, because to be honest it was shoved in the back of the cupboard from before we went travelling and I had completely forgotten about it. ⠀⠀ This is an incredible deep tissue massager that just WORKS. My amazing friend @positivelychronictravels has an amazing giveaway open until 6pm this evening to win one of these too if you are interested!⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 2.Foam Roller⠀⠀ You can beat a good ol’ foam roller for those muscles that you just can roll out any other way. I find this particularly good for lower back/hip/leg pain. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 3.CBD Oil⠀⠀ ALWAYS. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 4.My 100s of vitamins/supplements I take a day ⠀⠀ I take about 14 vitamins a day to help prevent muscle damage, inflammation, support my immune system - the list goes on. ⠀ (I’ll do another post on these as I’m still figuring it all out ) ✨⠀ ⠀ 5. Resistance Bands ⠀ Can really help with rehabilitation of your muscles and joints. They allow you to do resistance training but only as much as you can do without the strain of a huge weight that can cause you to dislocate or sublux. ⠀ ⠀ 6. Yoga 🧘♀️ ⠀ It’s by no mean a fix as so many people love to tell me, BUT it does help keep my muscles strong which is so important when you have EDS. That in turn helps keep me supported and stable, which ultimately prevents injury. I do have to be really careful not to hyper extend and do more damage then its worth though.
𝚆𝙷𝙰𝚃 #𝚉𝙴𝙱𝚁𝙰𝚂𝚃𝚁𝙾𝙽𝙶 𝙼𝙴𝙰𝙽𝚂 𝚃𝙾 𝙼𝙴⠀🦓 ⠀ It’s having the strength to get up every day⠀ And remaining strong by smiling through the pain ⠀ ⠀ It’s putting on a brave face even though all you want to do is curl up and cry. ⠀ Not letting the constant pain, fatigue & limitations pull you down,⠀ Or allowing it to change your personality and become your identity.⠀ ⠀ Instead, trying to educate people despite the constant dismissal, misconceptions & lack of understanding for Chronic Illnesses. ⠀ And finding people who are going through the same, to make you both feel not so alone.
𝙿𝙴𝚃𝚂 🐱⠀ ⠀ *dreaming of the day I can get a puppy*⠀ ⠀ I don’t have any pets of my own at the moment (I wish ), however whilst living at Alex’s mums we have their family cat, Morgan! ⠀ ⠀ Not only is he super cute & the biggest baby, but he’s recently had an operation to have his eye out. He’s really happy now though and always up for a morning cuddle.⠀

I thought ALL weekend about this before posting but I am posting. I worried about alienating my #sickAF tribe and losing whatever momentum, following that I've built. Sooooo, I WILL be texting this one to several homies, associates, potnas and Fam. On or off because the bus is moving. I wanna meet the world, make a difference, leave a legacy. #blackmen #africanamericanmen #melanin #blackpride #blackaffirmations #kings LINK IN BIO but LINK IN BIO so.....🤷🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️ LINK IN BIO
Over the last two weeks, Caroline has taken part in our storytelling workshop and has been working on crafting and presenting a personal narrative of her own. Today we are so happy to share her story with you! 💚
𝔻𝕒𝕪 𝟚𝟝 - ℙ𝕒𝕚𝕟 𝕠𝕣 𝕊𝕪𝕞𝕡𝕥𝕠𝕞 ℝ𝕖𝕝𝕚𝕖𝕗 I would love to sit here and reel off a list of things that get rid of my pain but there isn’t a single thing I’ve tried in 7 years that has managed to do that. There’s a common misconception that if we take painkillers we will be okay and be able to do more things. This is because those without chronic pain feel relief from painkillers and therefore they assume it will work the same way for those of us in chronic pain. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. A couple of years ago my physiotherapist and I were talking about the effect painkillers have on different people. During our discussion he explained that painkillers in general only reduce your pain by 30%. Therefore, if your pain is only a 3/10, by taking something like paracetamol or ibuprofen your pain will disappear. If your pain is a 10/10 like most chronic pain sufferers experience then these medicines are going to provide zero relief. Personally, on a good day my pain is around a 6/10 and therefore despite taking NSAIDs every day, there’s still so much I can’t do because of the pain. On a bad day, my pain is usually 10/10 and so despite taking my pain meds I will still end up bed bound on these days. It’s for this reason that I rely on a plethora of short term pain and symptom relief. Some of my favourites include; biofreeze, ice packs, heat packs, tens machine, KT tape, physio, massages etc. )

𝚂𝙻𝙴𝙴𝙿 𝚁𝙾𝚄𝚃𝙸𝙽𝙴 𝙤𝙧 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙝𝙖𝙥𝙨 𝙡𝙖𝙘𝙠 𝙤𝙛... 🌙 Seems fitting that last night I didn't sleep until 2am and woke up at 5am, as today's theme is sleep. As sadly, sleep is something I rarely get. I've tried everything, sleeping pills; no screens before bed; reading; no caffeine after 12pm; no alcohol; working out early and late; 'relaxing' before bed; meditation. You name it I've tried it and it's exhausting. I've never been a 'good sleeper', ever. Not even as a baby. I count a good night sleep if I manage to get 5 hours and this on top of my fatigue is a nightmare. The one thing I have always found helpful though is audiobooks. I have listened to these since I can remember, as its the only thing that allows me to concentrate on something other than my overactive mind. My favourite has always been the Harry Potter audiobooks read by Stephen Fry, as I know them inside out so they require no concentration. I can just drift off to his calm and soothing voice. What are your sleep tips? 💤
𝙼𝚈 𝙱𝙸𝙶𝙶𝙴𝚂𝚃 𝙰𝙳𝚅𝙾𝙲𝙰𝚃𝙴…⠀ ⠀ …and the award goes to @mralexbaker 🏆 ⠀ ⠀ I mean looking at the post above, need I say anymore? ⠀ ⠀ I know I talk a lot about how supportive my boyfriend has been about my illness, but its because he is the first person who has ever genuinely sat down and taken an interest. He always puts my needs first and never makes me feel bad for having a flare day or just not being able to do something. ⠀ ⠀ Also, he does cute posts like this one.⠀ ⠀ 💖
You only realise how much you take your nose for granted when you can't breath out of it #sickaf

Hi my name is Erin. I am living with two autoimmune diseases, Lupus and Hashimotos. I am also on drugs to help prevent my immune system from attacking itself. Take into consideration those who are high risk for COVID-19, such as myself and millions of others before complaining about social distancing, and acting as though this is no big deal. My life is important. I matter. . . . #highriskcovid19 #covid19 #spoonie #lupus #lupuswarrior #hashimotos #flattenthecurve #anxiety #sendprayers #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunewarrior #imscared #tryingtobestrong #warrior #pandemic #imatter #coronavirus #butyoudontlooksick #thisislupus #sickAF #publichealth
There is a quote making its rounds on social media lately and it really truly resonates with me. “Just because I carry it all so well doesn’t mean it’s not heavy.” That is very true and something that I often don’t stop to think about enough. Sometimes I can go weeks or months dealing with a lot of things - nerve pain, muscle weakness, dislocations, progressing disability, more braces and mobility aids, seemingly endless waits to see more specialists and have more tests - and I don’t even stop long enough to realize that this is a lot to deal with and I deserve time and grace to grieve a bit and to process all of these changes. I’m a pretty happy person, so it can easily seem like all of this is No Big Deal, but honestly, it’s a really big deal. This is a lot for someone to experience on a daily basis. This is a monumental life change. This is really hard stuff. But if I wasn’t sharing these very personal thoughts in writing on the internet, only a couple people would know that I struggle to carry this weight sometimes. It’s not something I will easily bring up in conversation. So check in on the strong people in your life. Check in on your chronically ill friends who have been sick for so long that they just seem to have a handle on everything. That very much includes your friends with mental illnesses, not just physical illnesses. Sometimes it might be too heavy for them but they’ll keep on smiling anyway. Sometimes it’s been years since they got sick, and the Get Well Soon cards stopped coming long ago, but they’re still deep in the middle of it all. Sometimes just a quick message saying “hey, I bet all of this feels like A LOT sometimes,” is enough. Every once and awhile we need someone who isn’t us to nod our way and recognize how heavy this shit can be, even if we’re carrying it all and smiling while doing so.

Being sick is hard. There are some beautiful, life affirming moments scattered throughout the difficult ones, but there’s no denying that it’s rough. My body goes through so much. My mind and heart go through so much. But I’m usually so quick to say “I’m good, how are you?” when asked how things are going. Sometimes that truly isn’t a lie. Some days are really good days where I am afforded lots of lovely distractions from the pain and fatigue. But somedays suck and I wish it was easier to say that out loud. Life is complicated. Being sick is complicated. It’s not always okay, even if I laugh and tell everyone else that I’m falling apart but it’s fine, ha ha, it’s all good. It’s really easy for people with chronic illnesses to be the ones who feel they need to comfort others, who need to make this more palatable because it’s so messy to be sick in a way that can’t get better. I do it all the time. Sometimes it isn’t a big stretch. It’s often so easy for me to see the bright side and that’s something I generally love about myself. But always reaching for that greener grass can also rob me of the time I need to just sit in that dried up yellow field, to feel the discomfort, to grieve. It’s not easy to let myself be vulnerable and to admit when things are difficult. But it always means so much to me when others open up about their struggles and I see my story in theirs. So I will try harder to admit when life feels a bit shitty and my chronic illness is kicking my ass. And I will try harder to put my guard down and let others comfort me instead of me cracking jokes about my cracking joints to cheer everyone up about the downfall of my body. It’s been a hard week, so I’d like to officially go on the record and say that the past 8 days have genuinely sucked and being sick is a huge drag.

Today I flew to Atlanta to spend a few days with about 16,000 medical professionals, vendors, researchers, organization reps & even some patient advocates. . My seatmate coughed intermittently during the entire flight. I'm already feeling sick... (yeah, I know, too soon ). . Then, before I even got to my hotel: - the Atlanta airport proved difficult to navigate (& inaccessible ) - I was asked if my incurable disease is reversible - I was asked about my wheelchair use - I was asked if I've tried treating my disease holistically, & received a blank stare when I said I don't talk about my treatments - I was encouraged to talk about & beat my disease, and to think positive (there's no requirement to talk about your personal health with strangers, neither is it required to be positive ) - Loew's Hotel refused to charge the card on file from the organization that booked my room, and they wouldn't give me a key unless I paid for the whole stay up front (despite several phone calls and confirmation #s provided ). Then they offered no apology and refused my requests for some form of upgrade or even a free drink for the trouble (after they charged the extra credit card ) - I was misgendered multiple times by strangers. It's emotionally exhausting to handle that internally, and to choose when to call it out externally. Y'all. Stop assuming gender (ie, don't say Miss or Ma'am or Sir or use gendered pronouns, *especially* when the person in front of you is clearly androgynous. ) . Y'all. I'm pooped, and I just got here. . But - yes, but - I'm so glad to finally be here. I'm ready to learn and engage and network, and I have steroids to make all that possible without ending up in the emergency room. . I'm here for all the Spondylitis folks in the house. Gimme a shoutout if that's you! .
