working on some animals for fall wreaths. it's been a difficult time for me pain wise. i think the endometriosis is growing around the nerves in my back making walking and sitting difficult. so all of my maker projects are taking forever to complete, and start... haha! living with chronic pain is a world i honestly didn't imagine living in at this stage in my life. ♡ kids need indoor shoes and groceries need to be done and cat fur needs vacuuming and so i try to stay on top of things, but i will admit, i'm not handling things very well. pain is a downer. ☆ today i got a new prescription specifically to deal with the nerve pain. fingers crossed it helps... friends, please cross your fingers and toes and eyes for some relief.

When you live with debilitating pain, it can sometimes be very difficult to focus and to just get on with normal daily activities. I have learnt over the past few years after 20+ years dealing with my condition, endometriosis, is just to accept when you can’t physically do things or don’t have the energy. It’s okay to retreat and say no. So today my day will be about focus. Focus on my body, trying to ease the pain and if the housework doesn’t get done today, then so be it! I no longer feel I need to try and be a martyr when my body is screaming in pain. . . . . . #endometriosis #endosucks #livingwithpain #listentoyourbody #sometimesyoujustneedtostop #livingwithendo #blogstyle #mylife #nofilter #justreallife #itiswhatitis #currentvibe #gratitudealways #giastylewoman #toomanywomensuffer #notalone #focusonme #giasmusings #giasdiary at Hampton, Victoria, Australia

While I was working on the #pain talk I realized I have three different certificates for #painmanagement 😁 #tinnitus #childbirth #naturalbirth and with guided Imagery, I can help with the pain of #heartbreak #fearoffailure #resistance #loss and life changes that come from #livingwithpain. If you’re in #ct come in for the talk, or contact me for an online session to find out how hypnosis can help. at Connecticut

Sometimes this disease baffles me. As you can, the joint is swollen and angry but it isn’t crazy painful. 8 weeks ago it took me back to the hospital for a cortisone shot. #gigt #livetmedgigt #livingwithpain #autoimmunedisease #fightingrheumatoidarthritis #letssupporteachother

So, I went for a walk outside today because I have been feeling down and I thought instead of staying in bed laying in the blue funk, I would go outside. Something about breathing the air and having the wind in your face makes you feel better. There is a park nearby where there are just trees and grass-no playground, and far enough back from the street where the noise of the cars is forgotten. Surrounded by trees makes me feel like I am deep in nature, I love it there. My hips were aching the whole time, and my neck was rigid, and my spine was spasming, but still, I walked. During my walk, I found this tree that was missing layers, and you could see a more in-depth layer of this tree. I thought "everyone has layers and in some people, you will never see the deep layer inside because they are covered by a hard outer layer." I know I am like that, I am a Virgo, and we are known to give a smile to those looking, but inside we are crying in pain, in anger, in hurt, in disappointment, and whatever else is going on. The tree doesn't bend under pressure, but plants roots so deep that no matter what they grow tall and strong. They are able to withstand the bitter cold wind and the intense heat. They mostly, only fall when people cut them down. And even then find a way to continue to grow and continue to stand tall when the bitterness comes back and when the heat is hot as fire. So, that is what I must be. Strong enough to withstand the bitterness of life and the heat when the pressure becomes too much. Even when people or life's randomness cut me down, I must not allow them to get the best of me. I must grow and be strong layer by layer. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> #walk #stepbystep #instadaily #instahelper #trees #nature #outsidelove #loveyourself #moodchanger #feelgood #sunday #moves #livingwithpain #virgo #mytruth #SKiL at Georgia

@lovewithinuk

After many years of feeling misunderstood and misdiagnosed, 18 months ago I was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome EDS, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) and Arthritis. Only now am I beginning to except my true authentic myself. As a part of my healing journey, I started looking into holistic therapies that could possibly help me manage my pain. I have found that massage therapy is one treatment that has helped improve my quality of life, as well as having a positive impact on my emotional wellbeing. When you live with chronic pain, having a variety of strategies to turn to for pain relief is important. I have found massage, meditation and yoga are all wonderful, powerful tools for me to help relax my mind, body and soul. #photooftheday #selfcare #selfcarematters #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatiguesyndrome #elhersdanlossyndrome #eds #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #pots #arthritis #nausea #livingwithpain #holistichealing #holistictherapy #weavershousespa #vegan #plantbaseddiet #healingfoods #massage #mindfulness #gratitude #lovewithinuk #lavenham #suffolk

i always loved and admired these wonderful trees in „my park“... having watched a very inspiring video on yt about someone suffering from morbus bechterew an instant ago, I realized, that it was for their calm and strength... i cannot remember a day in my life not suffering from physical pain. sometimes there were better days, sometimes worse. but there is always some sublime pain working itself through my bones. i don‘t take any medication, because it never helped. so... realizing, that today after quite a long time I got back to „my“ trees for „some purpose“, I really do have to reactivate my „workout“-regime... #park #tree #baum #drzewo #pain #livingwithpain #lake #jezioro #see #chronicalpain #strength #reactivateyourself #2018 #healyourself #findingstrengthinnature at Lietzensee

@bossmama_tog

Throwback alert. I miss this. I miss being in better shape. I miss being able to do things without being in severe pain afterwards. I wish I was someone’s project. I wish I could erase the weight that my joints can’t handle, the weakness, the exhaustion from trying to get by through daily tasks. Life with a genetic disorder and multiple past injuries makes simple tasks a complete struggle. I just want to be the best possible me for my kids. I haven’t slept on my back in 8 years without waking in awful pain. Ugh if there was a switch to flip to change my life for the healthier and stronger I’d flip it. #vampiredisease #acuteintermittentporphyria #porphyria #accidentprone #dailysurvival #throwback #momlife #notthebestme #livingwithpain #livingwithinvisibleillnesses #constantpain #geneticdisorder #dailystruggles #wanttobebetter #wanttobehealthy #healthylife

Instead of redoing outlets, this is handy. Found a 2 pack of these for under $20 at Costco great to charge devices and keep stuff off the counter. Makes for less stressful experiences.

I’ve never appreciated walking as much as I do today. After 2 hours with a physical therapist and an hour with a massage therapist I finally feel like my back pain is letting up. Pain is no joke. Not even a little. This picture isn’t from today but rather represents what I’m so thankful for. I’m so thankful I can ride and play outside. I’m so thankful I have choices in my life and the ability to pursue dreams. If you’re struggling with pain I understand and my ❤️ goes out to you. You are much stronger than you think. Hold on to hope and never forget to believe in magic 🦄. Sincerely, Danielle the Colo-Radden at Eden, Utah

@endo_loves

Blessed. Blessings. Gratitude. Thankful. These are words I have always tried to cling to even on the worst days as that's when we need those feels the most. Right now however, I'm in a place where I am struggling so hard to find the blessings - I've been hit with a lot of shit past few months which took so much out of me but I did what was needed to be done as I thought it would be worth it. What has happened in last week's made me see, I didn't think it was going to be worth it. But, I had to try. In the past week, I have been dealt the most devastating & heart breaking blow of my husband leaving me after 13 years 💔😪 So there has been some serious up's & downs & will be going forward in those initial "trying to heal and mend my heart" months. Because of all this, I am loosing my gratitude & failing to see my blessings as I'm clouded by sadness. Even praying is something I can barely doing as I feel my heart is too broken & I can't pray for myself even though I should be. Our faith will always be questioned when you are dealt with the hardest of blows but it should not be something we loose. What I am trying to do is focusing on my blessings, even with all the heart break, as that in turn makes me focus on love and gratitude. I am blessed in so many ways which is why I wear my blessed necklace on bad days so I will be reminded that now is the thing to think of something I believe is a blessing. It's the only way to turn those dark thoughts around. As when it's a partner leaves you, you can't help but think "it's all me, what did I do? What didn't I do? Does he not love me because of endo and chronic pain or because I gained weight or because I'm not fun anymore, is it because of all I couldn't give him because of my chronic illness & chronic pain" etc etc etc. Although I know that those stupid thoughts should not be entering my head, I can't help them. So again what I'm doing is allowing those thoughts, acknowledge & replace them with a blessing. It is forcing me to look for the good as I will self blame continually if I didn't try. My blessings will get me through, to a better place. And for that I am SO GRATEFUL 🖤

My face! This week I had to fly to Scotland for a family funeral. It’s the first time I’ve flown since my facial issues started and I was worried about the pain. Flying there was sore but manageable, flying back was bloody awful.

All right, going to get a little more personal than Maybe I usually am, but I feel the need to share this today. I'm crazy blessed. For anyone who owns a small shop, for anyone who is trying to grab hold of the life they want, for anyone who is daring to do more than they thought they could, this is for you. I, like so many makers, am driven to create. But already, this little shop is so much more than I could have imagined. Even more so, because I have a degenerative joint disease, and live with pain, and it only gets worse. Some days, I can't but barely hold on to a paintbrush my hands are so swollen. I actually closed the shop for three and a half years because I thought I couldn't do it anymore. I thought I wouldn't be able to do it, so why Try? It takes time to come to terms with things being different than you thought they'd be, but I am so blessed. Because I can still do this - and I will do this because I am so much more fulfilled, so much more grateful, so much more then my disease. And today, despite the pain, I'm back at it. Because I love what I do, and I won't quit. I Won't Give Up. Because I'm so very blessed. . #blessed #blessed🙏 #soblessed #soveryblessed #blessedsign #largesign #woodsignmaker #signmaker #signmaker #etsyseller #smallbusinessappreciation #smallshop #smallbusiness #jointdisease #chronicpain #livingwithpain #degenerativediscdisease #degenerates #buffalocheck #buffaloplaid

Have you ever had this conversation, or a similar one? . . Sadly, many women who experience pelvic pain such as endometriosis, have had this conversations many times. So often their pain is brushed off as just “women pain” and not taken seriously, with few people actually realizing how difficult and debilitating their pain can be. . . If you experience pain - any pain - seek help from a medical professional who cares and who can help guide and treat you so you can feel better. . . And if you are someone who does not experience pain and discomfort, recognize that your friends, loved ones, and acquaintances may, even if they “look” healthy. . . #endometriosis #pelvicpain #pain #livingwithpain #painfulperiods #painfulmenstruation #pelvichealthmatters #pelvichealth #pelvicfloor #pelvicpt #womenshealth #pelvicphysio #ygkphysio #ygkpelvichealth #ygkhealth #ygkmedicine #ygkpelvicpt #kingstonphysio #kingstonpelvichealth #kingstonphysio #pelvicmafia #tayloredphysio #tayloredphysiotherapy #tayloredpelvicpt

Had an absolutely amazing weekend away despite endo making a surprise visit!! Was really lovely to catch up with friends, and to see where the other half has spent such a big portion of his life! I am now suffering from having pushed through the pain, and in absolute agony this evening! But the show must go on, forced myself into work today, in the most comfortable clothes I could find, and now having a well deserved bubble bath and some strong pain relief.. I have to say thank you to this man! He has been my rock throughout my endo journey so far. He knows exactly the right thing to say and do on a bad day, and supports me with every decision I make!! #love #stepmumlife #bristol #endometriosis #mercure #endometriosisuk #endojourney #Endo #pain #livingwithpain #citybreak #weekend #weekendaway #party #hotel #hotelstay #mylife #myrock #relationshipgoals #goodday #badday #silverlinings at Bristol, United Kingdom

I’m up to my eyeballs with painkillers since yesterday- my knee is very poorly and I limp so much today i even consired using crutches for walking 😭 that’s what you get for teaching higher impact classes on the hard floor 👎👎👎👎 i only hope my peeps in the classes will not start feeling the 100% lack of cushioning on their various joints. And that’s about the one lucid thought i have today. I’m on ketonal and codeine high and seeing predatory unicorns everywhere and move around in a bubble of epileptic silence. No, i HAVEN’T drank anything with alcohol inside. I’m proud to say my project goes well and so far I’m not even tempted 👍😁. So, i guess I’m gonna have another rest day today and will try to double up tomorrow to still finish up my program this week and join all my friends in celebrations!

It’s fair to say it’s been a really stressful time lately. Not only has there been pain there has been seriously ill family, grief and work issues.

I've been experiencing pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders for over a week, had a massage, been lathering myself in ice blue and ice blue rub for days. . Tonight after my shower I decided to mix it up a bit and diluted a couple of drops each of Copaiba and Siberian Fir oil in some fractionated coconut oil and within minutes I am feeling less constricted and less discomfort. . So grateful to have these oils and even more so that my friends have oils as well because that's where I am staying, at my besties! Sharing is caring. 😊🙌❤

Massage for Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia can have an impact on your whole body causing ongoing problems in the muscles and joints, which is why suffers choose massage to help relieve the pain. A massage can help to relax the muscles and loosen the joints which can be a very effective way of relieving the symptoms. Other benefits include relaxation to improve sleep, improving the muscle tonicity, improve mental clarity, stimulating blood flow in order to relieve tension in the body such as headaches and diminishing any effect of anxiety or depression. #fibromyalgia #chronicpain #chronicdisease #chronicdiseases #betterhealth #holistictreatment #wellbeing #massage #betterhealth #energyhealer #energyhealing #healer #healing #holistichealth #lightworker #massagetherapy #massagetherapist #spiritual #therapy #treatment #livingwithpain #relievingpain

With all of its amazing uses and benefits, it's no wonder Frankincense infused DMSO continues to be one of our top sellers! Frankincense oil promotes cellular health and immunity and can help reduce stress and improve your mood! 🌞 According to WebMD, Frankincense oil can be used on the skin and by inhalation as a pain-killer. Frankincense is also a powerful astringent, meaning it helps protect skin cells. It can be used to help reduce acne blemishes, the appearance of large pores, and lift and tighten skin. Infusing Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Frankincense essential oil with DMSO enhances the absorption rate of the Frankincense, making it that much more beneficial on TOP of the pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties of DMSO! Try this powerful combo for yourself and see what a difference it can make! 💥 Link in our bio . . . #HerbalMana #frankincense #frankincenseoil #essentialoilsforpain #naturalpainrelief #naturalstressrelief #livingwithpain #naturalhealth #DMSO #painrelief #naturalskincare #loveyourbody #smallbusinessutah at Logan, Utah

@nikkigyin

Living with auto immune & having a mind so resistant to pharmaceutical medication is not an easy path to tread, stopping my decade old medication nearly 4 months ago was such a big step, feeling so empowered & not a hopeless victim to someone writing out a script for me....it brings tears to my eyes, the battle I have with myself 'do I take it, do I not'. Since not taking meds can't say I'm much worse but I am also not fully better either, managing pain rather than being fully free from it..... Essential Oils helping with stress & anxiety, life in general (without them life would be unbearable), Ayurveda helping support my journey coming off western drugs, but then I'm popping painkillers, telling myself I'm doing good.....this IS NOT good! I need a sign!? A crystal ball....@epicself wrote an inspirational piece about 'listen to what your body needs', ding dong, surely my body doesn't want to be in daily pain, I'm doing everything I can with nutritional support, positive feelings, releasing emotional stored shit, all the other holistics I can throw at myself, my only block is doing what the doctors suggest, taking a small dose of auto immune suppressants which would help with colitis & an arthritic issue, maybe I'm so blinded by my stubbornness I can't see that giving it a go for a short time is maybe what my body is needing, a break from managing auto immune bullshit! _____________________________________________ #dontknowwhichwaytoturn #autoimmune #essentialoilsupport #ayurvedicsupport #livingwithpain #wanttoheal #healingjourney #breath #meditationsupport at Jersey

I think I have known this for awhile and just finally accepting it. Its been hard to breathe lately with my anxiety, add my chronic pain and I honestly dont know how I even get through each day in one piece. Today, I got some sad news about one of my senior chihuahuas. She has congestive heart failure. Were gonna start meds and hopefully see an improvement in a few months. If things dont improve I have to make a really tough decision. I instantly broke down and this has drove me completely off the edge. 💔 I need time to just focus on myself, recenter, rebalance and prioritize better. I am exhausted calling out to the universe for help. Overwhelmed with emotion. Tired of being tired. I feel like the walking dead. My light is flickering. I am burned out. 💀 In the next few days I am gonna take a break from social media. You all are so inspirational its hard to not to check in and see what everyones got going on, but this is something I really need. I will still check my DMs here and there cause I love chatting, I just wont be checking posts for awhile. Thank you all for your support and positivity in my good and bad days. It means so much. 💋✨ at San Francisco, California

While I've been busy taking care of everyone, this man ( @a_tunac ) has been in the background quietly taking care of me. I'm normally great with words but even now, I still can't begin to express the #love #gratitude and sheer #joy of having him in my life. . . So I did what I do best, poured my love into cooking. Seafood Boil with Golden Potatoes, Spicy Sausages, Corn, Shrimps, Clams and Dungeness Crab. 1. Fill large pot with water. Add Old Bay, bay leaves, paprika, onion powder, lemon, cayenne to taste. Add potatoes, crab and sausages. Bring to a boil and simmer until potatoes are just soft. About 10 mins 2. In a 2nd pot add a crap ton of chopped garlic to 1 cup of unsalted butter over low heat. Allow to cook together until garlic is soft. 3. When potatoes are done add corn and clams. Cook for 3 mins 4. Add Shrimps and cook until shrimps are done.
