I think those with a chronic illness especially will understand this. 
Everytime i get 1 step forward in life. My RA throws a curveball and im 5 steps back.  Just remember if you cant keep up with your peers dont feel bad. Having a chronic illness is a job in itself. My cousin Toni says this to me everytime i tell her how crap i feel my life isnt where i want it to be.she always tells me to be proud of myself. I love my friends & family. ❤❤❤ #rheumatoidarthritis #chronicillness #autoimmunedisease  #depression #beproud #mentalhealth #jia #rawarrior #chronicallyfabulous #warrior #chronicpain #family #friends #besupportive #supportsystem

🌊 sometimes it just hits you like a wave. And all of a sudden you forget how to swim. And with every movement you make you’re pulled deeper into the ocean, and it is then you wonder if you will ever breathe again 🌊
Over the weekend I spent the days surrounded by my best friends, the day was beautiful, the atmosphere was buzzing and my smile finally felt real....And then hours later at 9pm it hit me. All of a sudden the depression came back - with no warning signs. And with that I wanted to collapse to the ground. We were out and my friends noticed - they spent the night talking to me and dancing with me until I felt okay. 
I wanted to write this down because to me this is what depression feels like - sometimes for no reason at all it just hits - kind of like a wave. And it’s in these moments we must fight and hold on - I held onto my friends and slowly I was able to breathe again. Slowly I learnt how to swim and for that I will always be grateful. - so promise me, in these moments you will reach out and you will hold on. Because one day you will be okay again, and one day you won’t be scared of the ocean anymore.

My rheumatologist wants my next IVIG done at hospital. Getting admitted to French Hospital in SLO  tomorrow morning for three days. Hoping no reaction and then the next IVIG can be done outpatient at home. Let’s pray IVIG starts to work with this infusion, that my  Swallowing IMProves  and muscles will start to function so I can move my arms and fingers. #ivig #autoimmunedisease #dermatomyositis

Most people don't understand this level of fatigue.

Newsflash: I get cravings sometimes too! 😱 .
Sometimes I want something sweet...and when I do, I'll make something like these cookies! 🍪
.
But not your ordinary, sugar-gluten-dairy filled cookies!😎
.
These are packed with fiber thanks to TigerNut flour. Healthy fat, courtesy of coconut butter. A little protein by way of collagen powder. Dipped in dairy-free melted chocolate chips.
.
Craving gone and health is still on track. 🙌🏾🙌🏾

🤓 PART 2. Thyroid + loss of eyebrows 
So based on the response to yesterday’s post, lots of you with a thyroid problem have had issues with your brows so I’m following up with a second instalment. 
Yesterday we learnt that not enough of the thyroid hormones T4 + T3 can disrupt the growth phases of your eyebrow and eyelash hair leading to loss of the outer third, but what  if your levels of T4 and T3 are fine? 
Well then the hair loss could be due to an #autoimmune aetiology —> I.e. the Hashimotos component of your thyroid issue... Yep, as well as attacking your thyroid gland, those pesky thyroid auto-antibodies have been found to attack the hair follicles (yep there are thyroid receptors everywhere including your hair follicles!).. Lymphocytic infiltration (these are white blood cells that present as a marker of immune cell activity) have been found to surround the hair follicles in their anagen phase invading the outer root sheath, preventing them from growing ☹️ Don’t just rely on TSH as a diagnostic marker, get your thyroid antibodies tested too! 
So to grow the eyebrows, hair, eyelashes etc back we need to work on modulating the immune system and getting those thyroid auto-antibodies back into normal range.. There are so many things that have been shown to modulate the immune system (they don’t all work for everyone as we’re all a bit different) but things to try are sunshine, stress management, selenium, inositol, hormone balance & diet changes 
to name but a few... Again, because hair growth is slow you need to be patience, it will take at least 6 months to see a difference x #hypothyroidism #thyroidhealth #thyroidwarrior #caringbahnaturopath #autoimmunedisease #womenshealth #thyroidsupport

Many people have no idea that I have an autoimmune disease that some days makes me feel miserable.  I am definitely not sharing this for pity.  I am sharing because I know there are so many out there that can relate to my story!
Hashimotos for lack of a better term is just a pretty sucky disease.  Although you don’t look like anything is wrong there can be days where you feel like you were hit by a Mack truck. No energy, can’t sleep, bloated, puffy face, and maybe a bit of weight gain,  This disease causes the body’s immune system to attack your thyroid gland, leading to inflammation, and subsequently an underactive thyroid.  The thyroid is responsible for important body functions like regulating the metabolism, body temperature, and muscle strength. 
For a long time I gave up hope. I just figured this was how it was going to be.  I wouldn’t be able to lose weight and I would feel sluggish all the time. 
Thank goodness I was wrong.  I changed my diet and found that when I incorporated low intensity exercise into my routine I actually felt so much better and started to see results-both physically and mentally! 
This is why I am so excited about this workout you see here that I will begin testing with a group of women in January.  Totally low impact which means less stress on my thyroid which will increase my results! 
Can you relate to my story?  Are you ready to try something different?  Let’s go my autoimmune friends!  Let’s do this together!

It doesn’t fit under the tree! 🎄 But it will help me get where we want to go.  Gregory Women’s Jade 63, my first multi-day back pack, for those trips I’ve only dreamed about. Freeze dryer arrives Wednesday. Now, I really feel like I can go anywhere my legs can take me. Where would you go with an overnight pack?
