As your pain therapist I really do understand pain and how it can impact on the simplest of tasks. Suffering from Fibromyalgia and Me I have first hand experience of continual pain. I am very glad to say I effectively manage the pain with #Physiokey treatments and over the last 4 or so years have been continually 85% better on average. If you would like to know more about treatments and the way they work, please send me a message.

I'm so exhausted! I've been up since 6.30am waiting for a plumber. He came at around 9am, looked at my toilet, couldn't fix the broken loo seat (which was brand new when I moved it, but basically fell apart one day ) Turns out he couldn't fix it either so he left and got me a new one He couldn't fix the flushing problem (it was filling with water to the rim then draining slowly ), so he has had to call the drainage people as he thinks the outside drains are blocked They just arrived, but had to go away and get more water (? No idea ) so waiting for them to come back Hope they can sort it 🤞🏻 I'm in a lot of pain today. I'm so tired too, so I hope the drainage people come back soon #FarawayGirlSpoonie #ME #Fibromyalgia #chronicillness #palegirl #spoonie #Bumblebee #MyalgicEncephalomyolitis #chronicpainsyndrome #spineissues #Osteoarthritis #widespreadpain #fatigue #wheelchair #disabled #chronicillness #depression #anxiety #GAD #mentalillness #MillionsMissing #hearingloss #hearingaids #brainfog

Nature is so unique and wonderfully made. 🧡 YOU are so unique and wonderfully made. 💛 Your health concerns are unique to you, so shouldn’t your treatment plan be unique to you as well? 🌱 Initial appointments with me are over an hour long, so we have time to really discuss YOU and what you’re going through, and have time for an INDIVIDUALIZED treatment. 🍁 #individualizedcare #naturalpainmanagement #chronicpain #fibromyalgia #holistic #integrativemedicine #ckont #chathamkent #chathamnaturopath

Tbt hosting the last fun race of the 2020 longboard season. Standing at the top of the hill getting ready to practice race starts for the bois. It was so much fun. Stoke and smiles for miles ⛅️🌤🌈🤙🏻😁 Cherishing these moments. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Have had to take a much needed, but dreaded break from longboarding and vert skating lately to hopefully enable rest, healing and recovery. Chronic pain that at times turn into severe pain, can have quite a debilitating effect on daily life and sport performance. Here’s hoping the next few weeks will enable me to regain more strength and muscular endurance though tailored rehab exercises and mobility training. Keeping my fingers crossed it’ll reduce pain levels and fatigue. #girlsthatskate #girlsthatskatedownhill #downhillskateboarding #skateboard #skateboardingisfun #sk8 #skateboardlife #skateboarding #longboarding #longboardinglifestyle #longboardgirls #longboardgirl #longboardgirlscrew #skateboardingismytherapy #mypassionforlife #passionforlife #nevergiveup #rehabilitation #rehabtraining #timeforrehabilitation #sportspecifictraining #sportsperformance #sportsperformancetraining #sportsrehab #chronicpainwarrior #chronicpainlife #fibrowarrior #fibromyalgia #temporarysetback

What can I be happy about??⠀ ⠀ So many things...⠀ Family⠀ Friends⠀ Community⠀ Tribe of Women⠀ Growth⠀ Nutrition Focus⠀ Body Movement⠀ ⠀ This weekend, I had to remind myself of there’s a reason for everything. Allan reminded me God doesn’t give you more than you can’t handle. (He’s my rock )⠀ ⠀ Very little know, but the last year 1/2 I’ve been going through pain and seeing different specialist. I’ve been doing less of the activities I enjoy long walks, biking, hiking, & even paddle boarding. At one point I got so discouraged.⠀ ⠀ This weekend I got GROUNDED! Brought myself back to my thoughts and focused on there other humans who are going through the same thing. #chronicpain I’m not alone.⠀ ⠀ I decided to take this as I’ve got a bigger outreach. I’ve got so much more to grow through and share. & I’m okay with it. This is part of me. #fibromyalgia along with a few other things.⠀ ⠀ I’m ready to keep bringing my best self & showing up for the women who count on me. ⠀ ⠀ Thank you 🙏🏼 all for the continued following & support. I’ll be here sharing value still & supporting all my QUEENS 👑

I'm booked in for a video appt in November, but theres absolutely no way I can manage that.. Pains increased with the weather getting colder... always forget how much the colder months affect me until they come back round😕. The conservatory should have been built last week, but they messed up somewhere so its starting this week. So scared of being in by myself while it's being built. My dad has spoken to them so they know I'll have the doors locked, probably not be able to talk to them etc & dads made sure they'll have running water & electricity while they're outside so I'm hoping I'll manage okay hiding away in my room & drowning the noise out🤞🏻. • I'm spending as much time as I can focusing on the doggos, as usual🥰. Ive had a really difficult couple of weeks with pain, fatigue, muscle spasms, my stomach etc but also with feeling so on edge, rly low, the nightmares, suicidal thoughts etc🤷🏼‍♀️. Forever thankful for the things that give me a reason to keep going -- the dogs, my family, friends etc🥺 • @surviving .with.c ; I love you endlessly, thankyou for everything, as usual.

Hi I’m Steph. Better known on insta as @divamumsteph I’ve been taking over stories today and will be for a few more days this week. I live in Bristol UK with my husband Shaun and daughter Ciara. Shaun is very supportive and helpful and often ends up having to pick up the flack when I’m feeling unwell. I feel very lucky to have his support. As you’re reading this I’m guessing you too are a spoonie parent or you care for someone with disabilities, maybe even both. I don’t know how we get up every day and get through our worst days, but somehow we do. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably you’re own worst critic, but I can tell you nomatter how bad you feel, in the eyes of your children you’re still a superhero. You’ve got this. Keep going. Pace yourself and stay strong. I’ll be answering your questions this week and hopefully sharing some times with you about how I manage. Come by and say hi. 🖤🧡

Well that was a different run! Got a call and had to nip somewhere so had to cut the first one short but I continued at another destination until I got to the 2 mile point. I had a helper today, the future hubby, who spurred me on. He is quite athletic and teaches karate so it was a nice jog for him 🤣. We used to go to the gym together when we first starting seeing each other and we were ripped but jobs and kids put a stop to that so it was nice to be training with him again. I got a little pain in my shins today and know I need to fork out for decent running shoes. I dont want to hinder my progress so if you have any suggestions for running shoes please share it 🤩 Another thing I found this run, I managed to regulate my breathing which has been hard previously with having asthma. That definitely felt like a win 🙌 I hope you all have a lovely day ❤ #beginnerrunner #runuk #beginner #fibrorunner #fibromyalgia #ukrunchat #runnersofinstagram

🎀“All of God’s Grace in one tiny face.”🎀  🎀It's a cutesy little phrase you see a often associated with new borns and babies in general. The truth is that God's grace remains every day. It's that grace that keeps us going as moms of little kids. It's that grace that in the middle of your roughest moments will make a little one come hug you and say ''I love you, mommy.''  🎀There's a lot of ups and downs and all arounds in the little person years, but I'm grateful for all the times I see God's grace remaining despite the chaos and struggles.  🎀🍭 🎀🍭 🎀🍭 🎀🍭 🎀🍭 🎀🍭 🎀🍭🎀   #allofgodsgraceinonetinyface #hismerciesareneweverymorning #monday #mondaymotivation #motherhood #caticorn #toddler #toddlerlife #toddlermom #blueeyes #blueeyedgirl #toddlerphotography #alabama #southerngirl #iphonephotography #child #daddysgirl #love #precious #dadlife #momlife #life #pregnancyloss #mthfr #pcos #fibromyalgia #hypothyroidism #miscarriage #infertility

My current favourite dairy alternatives 🤤 honestly if you haven't tried either of these you are really missing out. Update on cutting out dairy- I'm having way less IBS flare ups so I think I've found what one of my triggers are. It still happens when I'm stressed but waaaaaay less. I've also found taking tumeric has helped massively with diegestion etc

Healing will often require that you show up for yourself every day, without fail. It will require commitment to doing the work to restore your health and vitality every day. It will require that you prioritize yourself and put yourself first. If you do not show yourself love, this will be hard to do and you may self-sabotage progress and continue to engage in habits and maintain relationships that are detrimental to your wellbeing. I encourage you to evaluate your relationship with yourself, become more aware of how you speak to yourself and how you can begin adding in more self-love and compassion. It may be uncomfortable at first and you will probably feel resistance. Keep doing it anyway. You are rewiring your brain every time you treat yourself better. Your health, your peace and your life is worth it. I believe in you. 🤍✨ Keep going. I’ll see you at the finish line!

You wouldn’t know that these were taken in the middle of a physical & mental breakdown. In between running from one emergency to another (my parental units who are also caregivers while I am stuck here with no pain care are both sick as well ) from the veterans hospital to dialysis I stopped for a few seconds to pose for some pictures. When you have a severe chronic pain illness with no cure, you tend to become an expert at pretending to look “okay”. I wasn’t “okay” here - but my biggest flex is mustering a smile anyway. (Yes I’ve gained weight but hopefully I’ll get proper medical care soon so I can fit into my clothes 😩 ) Outfit Deets: •I want your belly hat: Harry styles official merch with watermelon sugar enamel pin from @millypins • black ribbed tie up bodysuit from @fashionnova • enamel pins: @strikegentlyco @culturalvoid & @millypins •Pendant @thezencompanyonline •Vegan leather skeleton hands belt @witchwoodbags •Jeans (refuge brand ) @charlotterusse •Jelly Sneakers @adidas •Rose ring @kohls •Cane - embellished by me

Being judged for how you manage your pain is demoralizing and leads people to feel guilty and ashamed. People who live with chronic pain should never feel like that. Trust me; we have enough to deal with already. Chronic pain is tough to live with every day; all too often, we’re judged for being “moody” or “negative” when we are just trying to cope by being honest about what we’re going through. We need help and support, not judgment. Chronic pain affects every part of our lives. We need to be honest about our pain and admit how we feel, especially when we’re feeling really down. So please stop judging us for “focusing on our health too much.” We are not selfish or narcissistic; we quite literally HAVE to put ourselves first. What many don’t realize is that we get judgment even when we’re smiling and trying to “stay positive.” “But, you were just fine yesterday?” It’s this unspoken implication that we’re somehow exaggerating what we go through, or we’re just not trying hard enough because we’re lazy. Just because we can smile and pretend doesn’t mean we’re fine. It’s hard to appear to feel good when you reeeeally don’t. One of the most significant judgments I’ve faced has been from the medical community. I’ve been dismissed by doctors who I desperately needed help from all because they labeled me as a drug seeker. Medications make life more bearable. There are so many side effects that can come with medicines. Just to be clear, most of us don’t take them by choice. However, you manage your chronic pain is personal to you. And we have to do what’s necessary to make sure we can get up the next day to fight the same demons all over again. Please remember that the next time you’re dealing with ignorant statements from people who will never understand. 💖 Image ID below #actuallyautistic #autism #aspie #autistic #autisticadults #neurodiversity #aspergers #autismadvocate #chronicpainwarrior #CRPS #disabled #disability #autismcommunity #EDS #MCAS #chronicillness #chronicpain #spoonie #spoonielife #mentalhealth #invisibleillness #butyoudontlooksick #ehlersdanlossyndrome #spoonieproblems #fibro #mastcellactivationdisorder #fibromyalgia #chronicpainawareness
