One of the best things I started doing for myself is mindful walking. Mindful walking is when you say something with each step you take, typically 4 beats. My favorites include “I am worthy” and “I am enough”. Some days I have to push myself and dread going for my walks, but afterwards I’m so happy that I do. 5,000 steps may not seem like a lot to some people, but I am all about small goals. While my Crohn’s is in remission (woot woot!), I still battle with energy issues. 
However, exercise releases endorphins and I also notice that even if I spend the rest of the day in bed or on the couch, after my walks I typically feel mentally better. Sometimes this lasts the rest of the day and sometimes it just a little while, but it is something so small that has a huge positive impact on my mental health. It really lifts up my spirits and even makes me feel accomplished for the day. Not to mention that it’s great for your physical health too! I was introduced to mindful walking at The Haven Retreat by @youniquefoundation as a coping skill. While the cold weather has deterred me a bit from going for a walk every day like I did in spring in summer, it’s still an amazing thing that I just want to share with the world because if it helps me, maybe it could help you too!

As the sun sets on a beautiful day I reflect on the day I've just had and think on the whole it was pretty ok!; far better than I expected! I woke up feeling grotty...a combo of a virus and a PTSD induced restless night of nightmares . I refuged and recouped under the duvet till mid afternoon. I used all my strength to beat the PTSD fatigue and got up and dressed (not easy today), and I've ended the day by making four unique bespoke acts of kindness cards this evening for lush ladies in business; people who have been instrumental and supportive in my business journey 🤗 That felt good! The thing I've had to learn with my disability is that even if I do fuck all till 3pm.. that doesn't mean my day can not be rescued and I won't be able to do a stretch of work later in the evening that makes everything today (including the resting) all worthwhile. Without the resting, I wouldn't have recouped the energy to creatively invest in four new designs tonight, so sod what the clock says...I work when I can and I don't (without guilt) when I can't. Not everyone has that luxury admittedly, and many are tied to the 9 to 5, or even worse, the night shifts. Eek! Working flexi hours is ESSENTIAL though I'd say if you work alongside a disability...(whether it be mental or physical health.) Self-employment suits me soooo well. I'm so glad I made my hobby into a business, and can now do what I love when I feel like doing it. I feel so grateful for my lot in life (minus the trauma history obvs!)  I'm not defeated anymore. I'm achieving good things AND importantly enjoying the process  #summerSHINES #chronicillness #livingwithptsd #disability #flexibility #girlboss #complexptsd #complextrauma #bpd

Saturday lie ins with my Popps

We love a Saturday morning lie in when Daddy is on an early at work  Us girls get up, pay a visit to the bathroom/garden, day see you later to Dan, and back up to bed we go, make a cosy pillow mountain with all the pillows, snuggle up under the duvet and back off to dreamland we go for a few more hours  Poppy always takes a bit more convincing to wake up again though, but she is a good hot water bottle

Today is International Mast Cell Diseases Awareness Day

I'm too ill and tired to write more about my experience with this shitty disease today.

But I will say:

To any doctor, just because you haven't heard of it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

To anyone suffering, it can get better and you will manage to find a Dr who can help you eventually. Even if it takes a lot of time and ££. #mastcellactivationdisorder #mastcellactivationsyndrome #mcas #mastocytosis #chronicillness #invisibledisability

I'm in bed right now (I know, I know, totally rock and roll on a Saturday night, right?! Well sadly that's what a bitch chronic illness is) and this bloody cat won't leave my side! She has to sleep with her head on my pillow, right next to me, every night without fail. As much as the stray fur, smelly cat breath and multiple wake up calls during the night annoy me (oi Mum, give me more room, oi Mum I demand stroking.....now!), I wouldn't have it any other way. She has been there with me through the difficult pregnancies and now these last two horrific years in and out of hospital. She is well and truly part of our family  #furfriend #bengalcat #poppy #partofthefamily #throughthickandthin #familypet #chronicillness #tarlovcystdisease #tarlovcyst #arachnoiditis #challenge10in10 #10in10

Rustington, West Sussex
CIPO, Chronic Intestinal Pseudo-obstruction means having bowel obstruction symptoms without having a blockage. Bowel dilating and extreme distention, which can cause bowel ruptures. It can cause the intestines to become completely paralyzed, inflamed, and it can cause intestinal failure where the intestines can't absorb any nutrients from food or feeding formula. CIPO is a progressive illness and most people have dysmotility symptoms for a while before the severe obstructive symptoms begin. This is what happened for me, my digestion got worse and worse as I've gotten older but I was able to get by with taking huge amounts of laxatives until I was unable to even drink water by the time I turned 18. This is why I started TPN, Total Parenteral Nutrition - IV nutrition and hydration and now live with daily 15hr long infusions to simply stay alive. At that time I was diagnosed with digestive tract paralysis- gastroparesis and intestinal  dysmotility, but we did not know that this was caused by a progressive disease that leads to intestinal failure. After being on TPN for more than 6months I was diagnosed with CIPO by a neurogastroenterologist at Stanford. I am thankfully on medications that allow me to be safe at home (most of the time), eat sometimes, and manage my symptoms better than before I was diagnosed. So for that and TPN, I'm thankful. But this is still some wack shit (I'm out of the hospital now by the way!)

Dealing w chronic illness is hard and I use many different tools to treat it. Because I live in Oakland, California, marijuana has been legal as a medicinal alternative for over 20 years and my journey has brought me to a place where I rely on cbd products and indica to sleep w minimal pain at night. I’m excited to have found Hello MD @hellomd_com, a monthly subscription box service (for medical or recreational users) that introduces me to curated samples of all different kinds of products so I can try different items and find products that work for me and my health needs. If you’re in the Bay Area you can try them out too, see the using my referral code: 8ea0d. This is my first month and I’m already impressed. In my bag I got cbd relief sublinguals from Level @level.blends (my fav product this month)and they have been amazing for pain, a honey citrus cbd vape pen from DomPen @dompenvape , indica bliss blossoms chocolate edibles by Garden Society @grdnsociety , a jar of Marley Gold Sativa flower @marleynatural and some Elements rolling papers. I have no idea how to roll it up so I guess I’ll be using YouTube videos to learn! I’ll be documenting my adventures w this new kind of treatment, and don’t worry friends, for me it’s prescribed by a doctor! #chronicillness #diabetes #arthritis #fibromyalgia #spoonie #chronicpain #medicalmarijuana #420 #710 #HelloFriend #HelloMD #HellofriendBayArea #partnership #ad

Today I spent the day taking care of me! I enjoyed the morning with my man before he went to work, I studied for my exam, I soaked my feet and wrapped them, soaked my hips, and did a facial while watching my favorite show! I could ask for a beer tee day. I decided to share a tip from my PT I use every other day in my fitness routine. I will be sharing my daily exercises soon along with an instructional video on the website! #fitnessroutine #healthtip #chronicbackpain #takecareofyourbody #wearewarriors #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicallyfabulous #chronicallyfit #chronicallyexotic #ehlersdanlossyndrome #myEDS #spoonielife #healthtips #medicalmarijuanapatient #legalizemarijuana #cbdoil #naturalmedicine #holisticlifestyle #boundtoglisten #January2019 #chronicillnesscommunity #subscribenow #moreupdatescomingsoon

️Lessons from 
#chronicillness life :
⬛️️⬛️️⬛️️⬛️
Misdiagnosis after misdiagnosis since age 14, results; over ten out of control conditions.
-Trust no one except your own intuition.
-Avoid surgeries at all cost. -Nothing is certain.
-Take nothing for granted.
-Give thanks everyday . - - #findaway to keep progressing.
-Have support.
- Embrace the pain.
- Focus on love .
️For those wondering: I’m avoiding getting put permanently in a wheelchair by alternating with crutches (which I’ve been on almost a year) and a walker (which now can’t use bc left leg is totally unresponsive) as we await more MRI results and new doctors opinions.

Lately, I’ve been struggling with rumination over bad memories and mistakes I’ve made. Working hard to combat this by consciously reminding myself of the good times: by drinking out of a mug I bought on vacation, reading a book a dear friend gave me, walking through places I’ve cherished memories from. It’s helping. My life has and will be beautiful,  bipolar cannot steal that from me.  I’ve travelled across the country, performed on stage, aced exams, was accepted into a social work school, hosted events, & fiercely advocated for better services. Life will only get better. Life is not about what I’ve done wrong but rather what I’ve accomplished and changed. What have YOU done to change your life? 

I am currently preparing a presentation on schizophrenia for my class! The research is going excellently. I’ve learned about interventions (CBT and pharmacology), the recovery model, and how to prevent hospitalizations. Believe me fellow warriors, amazing research is being conducted! A cure is in sight - please please fight the good fight. Much love and many hugs xx

Today is Mastocytosis and Mast Cell Activation Syndrome/Disorder (MCAS or MCAD) Awareness Day. It's one of my Autoimmune Illnesses and it's do rare that most physicians don't know about it or understand enough about it to treat those of us who have it.

This woman is me and I will change the world for invisible illnesses, mental health, suicide awareness and prevention.
WHY ~ because of the moments that have allowed me to connect deeper with my two best friends. 
Of course I am talking about “strength” and “courage” these two friends appear particularly when I am on my knees physically, mentally, emotionally and even spiritually. 
They whisper to me when I am feeling lost about a fierce resilience that is deeply entrenched into my deepest breath. 
Yes, I breathe and without even knowing I embrace strength and courage through wisdom of living to being the woman that I am, to the woman I am becoming.

This friendship is why I step forward to inspire and motivate on a bigger scale about never giving up and breaking the stranglehold that judgement and stigma has over invisible illnesses, mental health, suicide awareness and prevention. 
As I wander forward, I intend on taking so many with me....if that’s you ~ I am glad ! .

Can I just give a shout out, arm out, any small amount of anything that I have to the people who are struggling with a chronic illness or disability and they’re in a hard circumstance.
Maybe the people around you don’t take care of you the way you need to be taken care of during this difficult time.
Maybe there’s no one taking care of you at all.
Maybe friends and family have abandoned you, because you’re FCKING SICK(????).
Maybe you weren’t in any kind of financial situation that could sustain a long term illness.
Maybe doctors don’t help you.
Maybe you’re at the mercy of family.
Maybe you’re living with someone while you’re sick who lies to you, abuses you: physically, emotionally, financially.
Shout the hell out to you if you’re still here. Still sticking around to try and see the other side of this. This is HELL, right? Like we are in hell or something going through the BS day in and day out.
Let’s stick it out together. I want to see the other side of this.
I want to kick dirt in some people’s faces when I can walk away free and clear.

I am sitting in front of a birthday candle, putting my Birthday Wish into the light ~ to regain my health and life, to return to connection with the people and art, beauty, creativity I love.

My 30-year friend and fierce soul ally Nancy West has written ~ As I reflect on Susan in the fragile state that she is in, I cannot help but think of her as a microcosm for our planet. It will take a tremendous collective effort to reverse the crises on our planet right now.  Similarly, Susan is at a place where a collective effort is being asked for to plug her back into her natural vitality and powerful life force. Thank you, community of humanitarian friends, for your love, light, prayers for a return to natural vitality and life force. Today's celebration of my Birth would be an especially auspicious day to contribute to the campaign to help resuscitate life. 
And now I embark on the day with the gift of Silence in nature... Thank you for being with me, and I love you... https://www.gofundme.com/SOS-SavingOurSusan #gofundme #lymedisease #chronicillness #susanslotter #tbi #artist #santafe #soulscapes #lightbeing #healing #gratitude #savealife

Today is Day #1 of my 30-Day Anti-inflammatory diet challenge. I will be cutting sugars, processed cheese, eggs, and meat, fried foods, dairy, and gluten from my diet. 
I will keep a diary of my symptoms each day and at the end of each week do a check-in. After the month is complete, I'll evaluate how these changes benefited my struggle with IC. See you on the other side!

Low histamine travel snacks.  Meal prep and planning is a big part of managing food intolerances. Apple and carrot ginger muffins, carrot sticks,  apples and macadamia nuts for the plane.  We know how bad airplane food can be,  and although I can get gluten free there is no low histamine option. Good thing is,  I feel great right now.  Just a few small itches. Stress and excitement can raise histamine too! So travel can kick it up big time.  Planning to meditate on the plane to balance it out. Now time to kick back with a mast cell stabilising chammomile tea until boarding.

Tomorrow we have a 4 year old. At 1.58am to be precise. (TMI?) To say we are proud of her and the little lady she is becoming is truly an understatement. She is a compassionate, generous, funny, wacky, sometimes little shit, beyond edible little love that we are lucky enough to call our daughter.

It has been a minute since I have posted. I have been dealing with really intense shoulder pain the past two weeks. It was really strange because out of nowhere I suddenly got a terrible pain shooting from my left shoulder into the rest of my arm. It started getting better after a few days but then last week it got ten times worse than it was before. 🦓
I couldn’t move without it hurting. I couldn’t breathe without getting terrible pain. I had times where I really struggled getting out of bed because it was so bad. I finally decided to go get it checked out. 🦓
It turns out I have muscle inflammation that then caused me to get a pinched nerve. So now I am on muscle relaxers and pain killers that cause me to be super drowsy. This past week I have just been sleeping during any free time I had. Luckily it is finally feeling better!  Jacqueline

@still_on_that_boat Such a cute dress! I've been on here 2 weeks - it's a fun outlet when you're too brain dead from Lyme to think straight 😆

@catherinetrujillo92 I remember this day :) I’ve had mine since 2013 😭

Hey good morning,

You may have seen my rant about falling to yet another invisible illness. 
But these moments allow me to connect deeper with my two best friends. 
Of course I am talking about “strength” and “courage” these two friends appear particularly when I am on my knees physically, mentally, emotionally and even spiritually. 
They whisper to me when I am feeling lost about a fierce resilience that is deeply entrenched into my deepest breath. 
Yes, I breathe and without even knowing I embrace strength and courage through wisdom of living to being the woman that I am, to the woman I am becoming.

This friendship is why I step forward to inspire and motivate on a bigger scale about never giving up.

As I wander forward, I intend on taking so many with me....if that’s you ~ I am glad ! .

Ok so today I kinda feel I hit a huge milestone!!
#fatigue #achesandpains and general feelings of rubbishness are something I’ve got used to over the years. Yesterday was a wipeout and today I only felt marginally better! HOWEVER ... I still got up this morning and trekked into London with my friend to sort his passport, we walked around quite a bit and I had a #potssyndrome flare up on the tube (bad timing!!) which always leaves me feeling whacked .... BUT I got home and every part of me said to sit and rest, put my feet up and give in .... NOPE!!! I made myself get changed, I wrestled into my #2xucompression, plugged in my headphones and set off for what the #couchto5k app told me would be a 25min run .... hilarious I thought ... me run for 25mins AS IF!!!!
BUTTTT .... I only bloomin went and did it, that was 3.7km which for me is ridiculously wonderful! And actually, yes im pretty tired but otherwise I feel soooo much better for doing it  .... So the moral of my long winded story is to #believeinyourself and even on those days when your #chronicillness is trying to drag you down remember that you are stronger and can do anything you set your mind too.

Day twenty of #letsovershare #photochallenge #boots

Boots
.
This time of year is when I break out the boots. It’s the only kind of heel I can kinda walk in because they fully support my ankle and have a chunky heel. .
The majority of the time I am in vans, converse when out and about or bare feet when I am at home. Adding heeled boots to an outfit makes me feel really feminine and dressed up. .
It’s nice to do that every so often to remind myself that I can wear things other than pyjamas or jeans and a baggy tee. .

This is home for me. Loft apartments, renovated from an old Mill built in 1800’s. Today has been spent on trainings, learning about trauma and meeting with patients. And then I drag my tired ass down to the river because the water has always given me what I need. It does something to brain (it really does, read Blue Mind!).. and it brings my own zipping zapping nerve pain down a few notches. I’m grateful for every step that was taken today to get me to my happy place. A few years ago, I wouldn’t have been able to walk this mile. I’m proud of me. I’m proud of my body. Despite the pain it screams, I know I am okay. I know I deserve to be here. And I have faith in myself that things will improve. #nottodaycrpsnottoday #invisiblewarrior #oldmill #ashtonmill #blackstoneriver #metime #healing #chronicpain #chronicillness

#truth 
Two years into my journey with #lupus, an alternative medicine practitioner suggested that I visit a Catholic Healer who was coming to town. She said if you're really open to trying anything, I've heard good things about this healer. So I went to see him. After a church service and a quick presentation about his life and experience, he asked those in need of healing to come forward. I remember waiting in line with thousands of thoughts running through my head. Was I really THIS desperate for relief? Is this what my life had come to? Were answers/a cure really that far out of reach? The answer was Yes. I was that desperate, this was my real life, and I didn't really know where else to look. 
As I approached the altar, someone directed me to stand directly in front of the Eucharist and the healer approached me and laid hands on my head. I immediately became weak and fell to my knees. That's when I heard a resounding voice say No man can heal you of this illness and I began sobbing. My husband was to my left and my best friend to my right heard nothing. The healer did not speak. My husband basically picked me up off the ground, dazed and confused, and drove me home.
This experience has confused, soothed, frustrated, and amazed me for years now. Since this message came to me, I've worked hard to foster a lifestyle that embodies the spirit and keeps the channels between me and the spirits open at all times.

I woke up today and I had a headache. I was bloated and uncomfortable. My elbow was so sore and stiff it brought tears to my eyes to move it. My knees were burning. And my lower back was swollen and stiff. But I got up. I got out of bed. I put my gym clothes on and I went to the gym. I bought a delicious açaí bowl afterwards as a treat. I haven’t felt this bad in a month or two, so I’m definitely flaring a little bit. All I can do is make sure I make myself more strict with my diet and give myself some love ️this is your reminder that you are strong and capable of anything •

Pete Selinski, from Phoenix Arizona, is Greater Than’s Warrior of the Week! At 10 years old and in fifth grade, this boy has been winning the Type 1 Diabetes fight since being diagnosed in July 2016. Diabetes doesn’t stop him from playing basketball, archery hunting and being an awesome student and friend.  His favorite low treatments are juice and skittles.  He couldn’t live without his Dexcom and his awesome Omnipod pump which allow him to do whatever he wants, be whatever he wants and stay safe and healthy!  He says although diabetes sucks he has met so many amazing people and friends along the way that he wouldn’t want to live without.  He prays nightly for a cure but until that day comes he will continue to fight for one by being a Youth Ambassador for JDRF and participating in ADA fundraising events.  Pete lives on God and insulin and he knows he is “Greater Than” diabetes! Petes life verse but you don’t have to use it. Joshua 1:9 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Pete you are so much Greater Than 1!

@diabeticdad_uk Oh God

@phdepritchard toasting you with a glass of red wine here !!🍷😊

If you can't bring any positive vibes, good energy, and encouragement to my life....You gots to go.

After dealing with any of these:
Health Issues
Financial difficulties 
Heartbreak
Loss of a loved one
Job loss
Mental health issues 
Failing at something 
Etc etc

You begin to realize who your real friends are vs who could care less about you. Ya feel me?

There are people that tend to disappear after difficulties come your way. They either ghost you, dwindle off, or act like they care when they really don't. I call them emotional vampires. They just suck the life out of you until you have nothing left to give.

I bring this up because I see so many of you not being treated how you deserve. You deserve people around you who want to be there. Who love and support you. Who won't peace out when things get bad. 
Over the course of my life I have learned that knowing my worth is more important to me, than having people in my life who genuinely don't care about me.

Instead of using your energy to keep the people around who don't truly care about you, use it to build up your  circle of genuine and supportive individuals. 
I just encourage you to want the best for yourself. To get rid of toxic people in your life. To appreciate the amazing people in your world.

Shoutout to the real people out there putting in work for the people they care about. You are the MVP'S!

CBD truly can enhance a person's quality of life. Many critics who haven't tried CBD often ask, how can it do what people say it can do?
.
Based on how CBD non-invasively interacts with the nervous system, a simplified answer would be it relaxes the mind.
•
People who live busy lives, or suffer from anxiety (or both) tend to have their minds running constantly whether they're aware of it or not. CBD is a lot like meditation in which it helps open up more space in your mind to allow your thoughts, knowledge and imagination to breathe a little better.
•
This comes from experience as I suffered from anxiety.
.
The calming of the mind was the first thing I experienced when I started using CBD. I started piecing together how having a relaxed mind literally changes everything in reality.
.
When you find peace within your inner world, your outer world will follow.🧘
.
Things that used to stress me out don't anymore, and that's because my mind is much more open and organized. I'm honestly the happiest I've ever felt that I can remember. Even things I love to do, like painting or drawing, I used to stress over because I'm a perfectionist and used to worry about other people not approving of the art I make for them. The stress showed in my work when I mean to only put love into it.
.
CBD changed all of this for me. All because it helps to relax my mind. Stress no longer affects me negatively! My life is now the most relaxed, happy and in-routine it's ever been. .

.
️ Helps with sleep and relaxation

This little butt weasel is 1 today!

So very glad we brought the terrified, snotty little dude home with us all those months ago. He's turned into such a rad cat/dog/weasel/otter who has smothered me with love and snugs when I've needed them most. 
He also provides me with a daily chuckle or 12.

Stay weird, little buddy.

@red_cst_service_dawg Very good photo because of the composition. I think just need some lighting in this photo then great! 😉

@becomingshadow Love this! 🐾🖤🐾🖤

This is me..... At least the healthier looking version of me on good days (even then I felt like total poop), and some of my critters .... The horses have all gone to live elsewhere now but am still in contact with them - have leased the stallion and mare out to a dear friend the donkey is living with another  wonderful friend, the youngster leading by my walker is in a partnership with his new people and me, so I have my cat and dog with me still, the only two I am safely able to deal with now due to illness and injury - and doctors orders...

Breakfast was on point this morning with @medicalmedium Apple Porridge!  I topped it with pumpkin spice, raisins, shredded coconut and since I was craving something extra sweet I added a little maple syrup. This is Not just any maple syrup this is the best maple syrup I’ve ever had!  They also sell maple cream that is to die for! It’s the little things like this I miss about Iowa but thankfully they ship! Check out @greatrivermaple and Apple porridge recipe is on @medicalmedium blog!  Fun fact: maple syrup is loaded with important mineral salts and antioxidants and contains vital glucose to fuel our liver and brain. .

@noralbclark Day MADE! 😍💛

When your OCD takes hold. I literally emptied the dishwasher because I didn’t like the way the dishes were organized and I needed them rinsed off properly before running the dishwasher. When stress I find it hard to control those mind traps. .

@theadventuresofcarla I do the same thing and my fiance hates it.

@living_ill @theadventuresofcarla sometimes you can’t help it

I can honestly say that since I’ve been down this year and looking back on where I was, that I held myself back. By doubting my abilities, my strengths and mentally. No one or nothing was holding me down but my own self doubt and fear. What was I afraid of ? I don’t truly know, why didn’t I leap all those times when people believed in me? I don’t know. I can tell you this though this set back is like a sling shot, I’m being pulled back for my take off. God has opened my eyes and my heart to a whole new vision, a whole new strength on top of what I had before. I’m about to be set up in a way I couldn’t fathom. I’m ready to leap Lord!! 🤜🤛
