Do you know what rhymes with strep throat? Ice cream🍦🍦 It has been a God send today. Still feel shocking but I was upright for a few hours. @leighbosworth risked his life today, coming to visit my germ riddled self.....because I didn't tell him ! I thought I'd save the news that I'm highly contagious and live dangerously 😁 #tulips #ibdwarrior #inflammatoryboweldisease #autoimmunedisease #thyroiddisease #osteoarthritis #spondyloarthritis #rheumatoidarthritis   #fibromyalgia   #uniquedisease #uniqueibd #chronicillness #chronicdiseases #chronicfatigue #spoonie #thespoonielifechoseme #ibdawareness #ostomy #ostomyreversal #ostomyawareness #onceabagladyalwaysabaglady #butyoudontlooksick #dontjudgeabookbyitscover #nocolonnoproblem #nocolonstillrollin #gutlessglamourpuss #inkedandawesome #inkedsickchick #girlswithoutguts #pma
Got the lurgy 😞 Been a bit snotty for a couple of days, thought nothing about it, I have a ton of allergies, so I thought it must be that. WRONG. This morning I was welcomed by a mouth full of weeping ulcers, an extremely sore throat and a high temperature.

This couldn't be more true πŸ‘Œ I never do anything by halves, its either all or nothing with me. I used to hate that about myself, that I couldn't do anything unless I was 100% in or 100% out! Its a rule that applies to every aspect of my personality and life.....and my illnesses. I just don't do middle ground and I have no idea why but as I approach yet another 32nd birthday (Ive had alot) , I realise that I'm actually really ok with that. I like who I am (for those who really know me, know that that is not something I say with ease) and I like the place I'm at right now. Nothing has changed within my personality and the way I do things; I still over love, over protect, over think and I most definitely over share, the only difference is now, is with whom I invest my time in and being kinder to myself. No longer do I over love people who don't give me a second thought, no longer do I protect those who would push me under a bus and no longer do I think about those who only want to cause me harm. I do however, give myself permission to have 0% days. I allow myself to have down days and not to be self critical when I dont feelable to take on the day's tasks. I no longer carry guilt, when I eject people from my life, who do not enrich my world in any way, shape or form and I no longer chastise myself, for occasionally putting myself first ❀ #ibdwarrior #inflammatoryboweldisease #autoimmunedisease #thyroiddisease #osteoarthritis #spondyloarthritis #rheumatoidarthritis Β  #fibromyalgia Β  #uniquedisease #uniqueibd #chronicillness #chronicdiseases #chronicfatigue #spoonie #thespoonielifechoseme #ibdawareness #ostomy #ostomyreversal #ostomyawareness #onceabagladyalwaysabaglady #butyoudontlooksick #dontjudgeabookbyitscover #nocolonnoproblem #nocolonstillrollin #gutlessglamourpuss #inkedandawesome #inkedsickchick #girlswithoutguts #pma
How you look when you use the battles you’ve faced to create meaningful change and a better future for the next person. . So lucky to meet so many amazingly powerful individuals in such a short amount of time. #HealtheVoices19 *Disclaimer* There is a REAL lack of organs in this photo πŸ‘†πŸ½ #IBDFam
A very sweaty and make-up free selfie but oh my gosh, I feel so much better after a 15 minute holiday. It's amazing how a bit of sun on the old bod can make me feel so relaxed and stress free, only if it is for 15 minutes! Happy weekend you amazing bunch of humanoids.

Bed is bae πŸ›β€ I am having such a bad flare right now and it doesn't seem to be showing any signs of improving. I feel like building a forte around my belly so noone bumps it by accident. One accidental prod is going to be enough to send me into a full blown meltdown.

Today's mood ☹ Had a grand total of zero hours sleep last night, thanks to the stricturing in my bowel blocking up completely. Was trying to nod off in a drug induces haze (prescribed drugs that is) at around 8am but again, my bowel had other ideas and I started vomiting instead. That is Thursday summed up! πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ’© #ibdwarrior #inflammatoryboweldisease #autoimmunedisease #thyroiddisease #osteoarthritis #spondyloarthritis #rheumatoidarthritis Β  #fibromyalgia Β  #uniquedisease #uniqueibd #chronicillness #chronicdiseases #chronicfatigue #spoonie #thespoonielifechoseme #ibdawareness #ostomy #ostomyreversal #ostomyawareness #onceabagladyalwaysabaglady #butyoudontlooksick #dontjudgeabookbyitscover #nocolonnoproblem #nocolonstillrollin #gutlessglamourpuss #inkedandawesome #inkedsickchick #girlswithoutguts #pma
Day 2 of... 'lets do everything in one day '. Ive been thinking this morning, how crazy it is, that I'm in such a good mood right now, simply because I feel better. Don't worry, it wont last πŸ™„ This is the how it is for people living with chronic illnesses. We're not being melodramatic, drama queens/kings, attention seekers or whatever, by saying "it won't last".... it won't and that is how life is. For people with compromised immune systems, we don't simply catch a cold and get over it. Our immune systems are our worst nightmare, before we start adding viral infections and such. And every time we pick up a bug, we will usually pick up a secondary infection because our immune systemsjust dont function like a healthy persons. So it is almost like a miracle to feel well because for us, its very short lived. 😌 And on that note, I wish you all a peaceful Tuesday.

Total spoonie logic. R.A in the wrist settled slightly after the injection (I shall not hold my breathe) and feeling loads better after the flu fog has cleared = DO EVERYTHING IN ONE DAY πŸ€” β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜† Took the baby to the vet today for her injections, she's fine, I'm totally traumatised πŸ˜₯.

Before and after the local anaesthetic wears off and the swelling increases πŸ™‚πŸ˜•πŸ˜’πŸ˜–πŸ˜© Well wont that teach me to keep my mouth shut before a rheumatology appointment. "They won't do anything" she said. Stabbed me with a huge needle, he did ! β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜† Ive had cortisone and steroid injected into the wrist joint and middle finger and my word, did it make me see stars! Ive had them in the past into my shoulders, hips, thumbs, elbows and spine but I've never experienced one as painful as today's. My pain threshold is incredible, so if I say it hurt, IT REALLY HURT. Im now behaving, for once and am resting in bed...with a fat hand.πŸ– #ibdwarrior #inflammatoryboweldisease #autoimmunedisease #thyroiddisease #osteoarthritis #spondyloarthritis #rheumatoidarthritis Β  #fibromyalgia Β  #uniquedisease #uniqueibd #chronicillness #chronicdiseases #chronicfatigue #spoonie #thespoonielifechoseme #ibdawareness #ostomy #ostomyreversal #ostomyawareness #onceabagladyalwaysabaglady #butyoudontlooksick #dontjudgeabookbyitscover #nocolonnoproblem #nocolonstillrollin #gutlessglamourpuss #inkedandawesome #inkedsickchick #girlswithoutguts #pma
Look who humaned today 🀩 For the first time in three long weeks, I actually feel a bit more alive. Went shopping, had my nails done, came home and spent the afternoon cooking. I am officially part of the human race again 😝 OOTD: Peplum tshirt by @find , jeans by @missguided tall, cardigan by @newlook and silk bow trainers by @puma. If you have mobility issues, these trainers are a dream. The laces aren't infact laces, they're elastic and dont need tieing at all.

I can't actually remember the last time I put on make up and clothes that weren't pjs. I am so over this flu now. This is my third week of chronic fatigue, swollen glands, high temperature, nausea & sickness, dizziness and fainting, sweating bucket loads, loss of appetite and a banging headache. πŸ€’πŸ€’πŸ˜· I can't play host to this much longer, β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜† On a brighter note, I hope you're all doing and Happy Monday to each and every one of you ❀❀ #ibdwarrior #inflammatoryboweldisease #autoimmunedisease #thyroiddisease #osteoarthritis #spondyloarthritis #rheumatoidarthritis Β  #fibromyalgia Β  #uniquedisease #uniqueibd #chronicillness #chronicdiseases #chronicfatigue #spoonie #thespoonielifechoseme #ibdawareness #ostomy #ostomyreversal #ostomyawareness #onceabagladyalwaysabaglady #butyoudontlooksick #dontjudgeabookbyitscover #nocolonnoproblem #nocolonstillrollin #gutlessglamourpuss #inkedandawesome #inkedsickchick #girlswithoutguts #pma
Oh my days. This was two weeks ago and I didn't feel cracking back then but my lord, I look a billion miles away from from this right now. This flu just keeps on giving πŸ€’πŸ€’πŸ˜·. Every time I think I'm getting a bit better, PLOT TWIST and downhill I go again. Just to add insult to injury, Ive lost my voice again πŸ™„ And that folks, is my Friday flu update πŸ˜žπŸ˜·πŸ’€ #ibdwarrior #inflammatoryboweldisease #autoimmunedisease #thyroiddisease #osteoarthritis #spondyloarthritis #rheumatoidarthritis Β  #fibromyalgia Β  #uniquedisease #uniqueibd #chronicillness #chronicdiseases #chronicfatigue #spoonie #thespoonielifechoseme #ibdawareness #ostomy #ostomyreversal #ostomyawareness #onceabagladyalwaysabaglady #butyoudontlooksick #dontjudgeabookbyitscover #nocolonnoproblem #nocolonstillrollin #gutlessglamourpuss #inkedandawesome #inkedsickchick #girlswithoutguts #pma
After years if being nagged at, I finally got round to getting a Medicare bracelet. This particular one was from Vnox Jewellery via Amazon and they do loads of different colours for men and women alike. Its engraved on both sides, which is why I went for a design that can be easily flipped over. I'll be back in the good books before I know it 😁 #medicare #ibdwarrior #inflammatoryboweldisease #autoimmunedisease #thyroiddisease #osteoarthritis #spondyloarthritis #rheumatoidarthritis   #fibromyalgia   #uniquedisease #uniqueibd #chronicillness #chronicdiseases #chronicfatigue #spoonie #thespoonielifechoseme #ibdawareness #ostomy #ostomyreversal #ostomyawareness #onceabagladyalwaysabaglady #butyoudontlooksick #dontjudgeabookbyitscover #nocolonnoproblem #nocolonstillrollin #gutlessglamourpuss #inkedandawesome #inkedsickchick #girlswithoutguts #pma
