Did you know that your autoimmune flares could really be yeast?  Or Candida. Whatever you want to call it. ;)⠀
•⠀
When I started flaring while traveling through Oregon, the nooks and crannies of my body were the first to respond and develop a rash. In my armpits, under my breasts, between my toes, behind my ears.⠀
•⠀
The itchy bumps spread all over my body, but they started in the ‘tight’ spots.  This is where yeast LOVE to hand out!⠀
•⠀
And I did not eat sugar! Or anything sugar-y. Yeast is not all about that, it’s not that simple!⠀
•⠀
I’ve had clients come to me very concerned about not wanting to eat honey or other GAPS ‘carbs’ because they did not want to feed their yeast. However, yeast only causes symptoms because there is no beneficial flora to keep it in check.  So if you want to heal your Candida overgrowth, you focus on restoring the BALANCE of your microflora first and foremost. ⠀
•⠀
After some detective work, I realized what started my yeast flare was an anti-caking agent called silicon dioxide in a seemingly innocent spice mix. Silicon dioxide can also be used as a pesticide to kill insects and mites, so guess what, it killed some of my gut flora too.⠀
•⠀
This imbalance led to my yeast flare.⠀
•⠀
So I drank Vitamin C to bowel tolerance to quench the toxins and free radicals that my yeast flare caused (Candida exhales 176 known toxic gases, folks!). This remedy healed my skin damage and let me recover much quicker than just using the GAPS diet alone. ⠀
•⠀

It’s getting there again...I’m too tired out to maintain a shorter style. It’s like I blink and my hair is 3 feet long again. I sometimes wonder...if someone else were to choose a style for me, what would it be? || #chronicillness #longhair #verylonghair #thickhair #vikinghair #lymedisease

My adorable rescue pup and emotional support dog, Jackson,  was the best thing I ever got. He knows when I’m having a really rough and painful day. He cuddles with me when I am feeling so lonely. I rescued him, and he rescued me. The love that I have for him is indescribable. Follow him to brighten up your day @jackson_the_rescue_pup. #chronicillness #RA #rheumatoidarthritis #fibromyalgia #sjogrenssyndrome #depression #anxiety #autoimmunedisease #autoimmune #rescuedog #emotionalsupportdog #bffs

“A few months ago, someone told me that my life has a lot of restrictions.

From a certain perspective, this statement seems true. To thrive in the context of chronic tick-borne illness, rather than to merely survive it, I do have to adhere to certain rules that probably seem restrictive to the average healthy person…” #newblogpost by @lymewarriorjennifercrystal on Reframing Restrictions.

After a reaction to one of my new meds I had to get a dose of IV steroids yesterday🙄...while the steroids are hated by both me and my body, I kinda like breathing🙌🏻 Thankfully I’m feeling much better today➕I took full advantage of the left over steroid energy to tackle this disaster....that tornado 🌪of a hospital supply closet is my room😬😮 anyone who ever lived with me, came to my apartments or got in my car, before I was sick KNOWS everything in my house should have a home and it should be color coded and in alphabetical order in that home...color first then alphabet(DUH😂)! I’m happy to say everything has now found it’s way back to its home🎉🙌🏻 One day it might again be color coded and alphabetized but for today, I’m thankful for the little bit of organization therapy I got➕so needed!

Autism 
AUTISM.....
Autism and understanding autism is something that is very close to my heart given that a) I'm on the spectrum and b) my son has it. It's something that I find so difficult to understand, mesmerising, and something I constantly try educating myself on. Being a father to someone autistic gives me a sense of achievement and the ability to understand more and more each day. I love him and there is nothing in this world I would ever change about him. .

Just a little throwback 😍

Damian is doing well, his UTI symptoms have subsided. 
Although he has been extra sleepy as a side effect from the antibiotics. 😴 
LOVE this Give Kids the World onesie and wish he still fit in it. We miss that place 😫 @gktwvillage

#flashback #throwbackfornoreason because this popped up in my memories and I just want my hair to do this again. Would require fixing my whole ass septic system because #ruralliving can be a doozy. This was when I still washed it at least once a week as opposed to however often I can successfully do so without flooding the living room on accident. Hmu if you know any amish people that work on septic systems, I need my general hygeine back. I also probably need to replace my toilet. On another note, I miss feeling this decent at worst. The reality that I once frequently applied make up and got dressed in more than house clothes is pretty wild. But I'm getting somewhere! My fucking #humira better show up on Tuesday, I'm already 2 days off schedule for no apparent reason 🙃 #bighair #young #crohnsdisease #crohnsbabe #crohnsgirl #autoimmunedisease #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #spoonie #bigooof 🖤⚡🖤 have a lovely extended weekend, y'all!

I feel unqualified for what you’re calling me to do
But Lord with your strength
I’ve got no excuse
'Cause broken people are exactly who you use
So give me faith like Daniel in the lion’s den
Give me hope like Moses in the wilderness
Give me a heart like David, Lord be my defense
So I can face my giants with confidence
You took a shepherd boy
And made him a King
So I’m gonna trust you and give you everything🙌🏼🙏🏼♥️

Tired of my body being hit by three different things and making me feel like I’m on my death bed. At least today my throat doesn’t feel like I’m swallowing razor blades. I’m just over my entire body feeling weak and these mini adrenaline surges. 🙃 Send some good vibes my way because I totally need them.  #mcas #chronicillness #pots #dysautonomia

How amazing are these illustrations by @emjayuc? 
It’s incredibly frustrating to have an invisible illness and have the validity of it questioned, raising awareness is vital. Not every disability is visible

GOOD MORNING. I’m back from being MIA this weekend. I’m still in my PJs, but I wanted to make a post anyway. 😎 My older brother got married yesterday!!! It was such a fun wedding and the cake was so good. 😆🤟🏻 I don’t know what I would’ve done without my G6 last night because wedding food doesn’t exactly have proper nutrition facts, so I was playing a game of guess and check. I made sure I had perfect sugars ALL DAY before the wedding dinner so that I wouldn’t feel as bad about being almost 300 since I couldn’t calculate everything correctly. 😅 Dexcom is a life saver though since I can get a play by play of what’s happening with my sugars and just correct them as the night goes on. What do you do for things like weddings and grad parties? I usually always end up going high. Dexcom is a life saver lol. If you have any questions about the Dexcom let me know!

I don’t know exactly who’s reading, or what your story is, or whether or not you need to hear this. But I wanted to say it anyway, just in case.

I know what it’s like to fight for a diagnosis. I spent years in and out of hospital multiple times a week every single week. Throughout my last year of high school and my first few years of University I felt like I practically lived there. I was either in the middle of a hospital stay, or I was seeing specialists or I was having some sort of invasive procedure done.

I was one of those medical mysteries, the kind that get passed from department from department because you baffle everyone. And this is even before the ME developed. Turns out it was dangerous complications from my birth defect but that’s besides the point here.

I was 16 when this all started and in no fit state to fight for myself, luckily I had a feisty Mumma there to fight my corner against the sometimes dismissive and frankly rude physicians. I know I’m very fortunate for that.

If you’re at a place just now where the tests seem never ending, the results are unclear and you don’t know which way is up - I’m thinking of you. If doctors are being dismissive of your pain and aren’t taking you seriously - I’m thinking of you. If you have well intentioned and understanding doctors but they’re still perplexed by your unusual mix of symptoms - I’m thinking of you.

It’s a long and frustrating process. Depending on the condition it can take decades to gain the correct diagnosis and I know that must be so difficult. You’re not fighting alone.

Your suffering is entirely valid whether or not you have a name to put to it yet. I do hope you know that.
