Here’s a little clip of Manny learning how to weave in between legs. I have been working with Manny to overcome his severe human aggression for over a year. Today we introduced a new “party trick” to help keep him mentally stimulated and provided with an appropriate outlet for his energy. #partytrickcorgi #painfulbuthappy #thedisableddogtrainer #dogtraining #mentalstimulation #doggyrehab #aggression #counterconditioning #desensitization #training #mypassion #mypurpose #invisibleillness #chronicpain #ehlersdanlossyndrome #cci #chiarimalformation #chiari #spinalinstability

I fill my cup so that I can better love on the people around me. I’ve been working hard on moderation and “parenting” myself. Cutting back on late nights so that I can get up early to enjoy the quiet, making veggies a priority again, reading more books, using my recovery days for recovering... I was stuck in the expectations of the “hustle”. I was doing that on-the-surface self-care that results in LOOKING better, but not always FEELING better because the REAL self-care, the actual things that make healthy changes felt too hard under the burden of birthdays and holiday travel, teething babies and temper tantrums, coming up with ideas for gifts and trying to make sure the kids were getting enough sleep, food, and love. My cup was EMPTY. Everything was being done halfway, including taking care of myself. And THIS is where being an adult is hard, because I had to assume responsibility for the choices that I made. I was burning out because I wasn’t making the choices that needed to be made to better myself so that I could give from a full cup. No one is going to save you except for yourself. This time of year, it’s so easy to forget that the world will keep turning if you say “no”. But, it will. So, drop the balls that don’t matter. Love the people who do, and choose to take care of yourself so that no one else is forced to. 😘😘😘😘😘

♡ Let’s Step Out Of Our Comfort Zones ♡ ▪ ▪ I don’t know that I’ve talked much about comfort zones and recognizing what ours consist of and the need to step out of them, but through self-love, and encouragement from my spouse, family and friends, I feel inspired to! ▪ ▪ For the majority of my life, I felt self-conscious and my self-esteem was drained (nod to being teased at school) to speak up and speak out about my thoughts, feelings, or aspirations. The atmosphere that I grew up in was stale and caused me to want to conceal my voice. ▪ ▪ Being diagnosed with epilepsy, growing as I’m going along the journey, experiencing many facets of life with a chronic illness, I began to reflect on this past evolving more intently. If the trials that we go through can build self-confidence and if we allow it, self-esteem, we can step out of our comfort zones. ▪ ▪ Over the last year of taking steps out of my comfort zone, I have found myself beaming with joy at having accomplished something that I didn’t think I would do. Stand up and speak out before a room full of students. I have been met with such graciousness, relatability and attentiveness that unites us even more. It has been so heartwarming to take those steps out of my comfort zone and experience the elation of all that I can accomplish if I remind myself that I am capable. I am able. I appreciate and love all of you for your support every step of the way. ▪ ▪ I’m eager to explore new avenues and grow outside the comfort zone. It’s inspiring, not only as an advocate but as a woman on the journey.

Sharing an updated version of this image. Totally frustrating having to watermark your images twice because people keep chopping the original website off the bottom 🤦‍♀️. . This image has gone viral it's been shared that much which is amazing...if correct credit is given! Just don't edit out my website pleeeeeeease! Give credit where credit is due. It takes time to create images and seeing them shared everywhere but edited to remove my website is really irritating! . I've just noticed someone with 10k followers has shared it on Facebook...and cut my website off the bottom. Come on man! Maybe it's post partum hormones but don't take credit for other people's work!! . . . . . #chronicillness #chronicillnessquotes #spooniequotes #spooniequote #chronicallyill #chronicallyillmom #chronicallystrong #chronicallysick #butyoudontlooksick #invisibleillness #invisibledisability #rheumatoidarthritis #rheumatoidwarrior #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunewarrior #disabledmum #chronicpainlife #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #chronicfatigue #chronicillnessblogger #chronicillnessblog #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieblog #spoonieblogger #spooniestrength

What was I doing again....................... oh I remember! Epilepsy has many possible symptoms and one that many people forget (pun intended 😁) is memory loss. There are different levels of forgetfulness, and while my memory could get much worse, it's still pretty bad. Epilepsy had effected my memory quite a bit. I often have people talking to me about something we did "oh remember when we (insert cool memory here) it was great!". And they look at you waiting for your reaction and your just standing there like..."hehehe no sorry, will you remind me?". . . If they don't know you well they may assume the memory wasn't that important to you, which can be really frustrating. Luckily my good friends understand and will reenact things for me so that I can get a second laugh out of them because I forgot the first time. Has epilepsy affected your memory❓ . . . #epilepsynow #memoryproblems #funnyquotes #forgetfulness #whatisgoingon #truestory #lol #brainmalfunction #epilepsylife #laughatyourself #epilepsywarrior #epilepsypositivity #epilepsyproblems #epilepsywarrior #epilepsysucks #epilepsyawareness #epilepsyfighter #epileptic #1in26 #seizureawareness #epilepsysupport #epilepsycommunity #chronicillness #invisibledisability #invisibleillness #purpleribbon #purplemovement #epilepsyfacts #cureepilepsy #keeplaughing

It is reassuring there are more and more of these moments, entwined in-between the dark turmoil that is hesitating to go - or that I try to cling to because it is what I know and the world beyond is scary and uncertain. . I think it is important to be fully aware of these joyous and cosy moments - to experience them deeply - in order to reconnect be who you are beyond the cracks and bruises that trauma left you with. . . #mentalhealthawareness #healing #lettinggo #littleboatofhealing #narcissist #afterthedivorce #invisibleillness #childhoodtrauma #cptsd #emdr #chronicpain #migraine
