If I'm being honest, I don't remember last Christmas. I was still quite sick from the lumbar puncture and I was just completely out if it.
I look fine in this photo. I look perfectly healthy, but this was the first time I could sit up slightly. I was propped up on a bunch of pillows and I wanted to capture the moment. I don't remember it, but I wrote it down.
I'm still very sick.
My appointment with my neurologist got changed from next week to June because she's off sick, but we've phoned up, hoping to get an appointment with someone else - these blackouts are lasting longer and I'm not getting better. I need help and I need someone to believe there's a problem... You know, other than the wonderful people following me. You're lovely, but you're not my doctors. They need to believe me.

Fit = healthy?
.
.
My health used to be my biggest pride. Loosing it was one of my greatest fears. I rarely got sick but when I did I felt like the world was ending.
. 
Then came the day I was told I’m chronically ill & never getting better. I’ve been in denial for months, not processing it & dreading every sign of illness, trying to convince myself it’s something else. But lately it’s been slowly dawning on me, that just because my life is different now doesn’t mean it’s not good. .

I used to be the person to wait it out. Thinking I’ll enjoy life once I’m back to 💯. This era of my life has taught me life happens here & NOW. Despite how I’m feeling. And I need to learn to accept it & make the most of it with what I got. .

Life with chronic illness is as good life as any. I’m alive. I get to be here for my children & my loved ones. And most of all I know I need to take this all in now because it all might be gone tomorrow. My theme for this year was to be present, and even tho this lesson has been something else than what I had in mind it has taught me just that ❤️

Vaan johan iski fatiikki eilen päälle ja tänään jatkuu sama meno. Jalatkaan ei oikein kanna. Piti  levähtää vartti kesken yhden sängyn lakanan vaihdon aamulla ja nyt takana on usean tunnin unet. Syön (onneksi oli ruoan tähteitä jääkaapissa) ja takasin nukkumaan. Fatiikki ei olekaan kiusannut näin pitkään aikaan. Aina tulee järkytyksenä, kuinka lamauttavaa tämä on, mutta sen kans on vaan pärjättävä. Mikäs siinä nukkuessa. Luojalle kiitos apujoukoista ❤️

Fatigue overtook yesterday. Today on top of our, legs not working as they should. I had to rest 15 mins midst changing the sheet to a single bed this am. Have slept few hours and after lunch (luckily there were leftovers in the fridge) going back to bed. Fatigue has been nicely in the background for quite a while lately so it's always quite a shock how disabling this is! But... Just have to roll with it. And thank the Lord for the awesome support system, I've got in place.

I love this quote. If you have any kind of chronic condition or disease, this can be your anthem.

Life can be tough, and most of the time there isn’t much to LIKE about what you handle daily with this, but there is plenty you can find to LOVE, DESPITE the faults. 
A lifelong, chronic condition doesn’t define you, but it’s a defining trait that you can love, despite it’s flaws. 
When you feel like you wish nothing more than to be separate from your disease, in a way you’re also wishing you could be separated from yourself. •
Despite the faults.

Love💜

The tooth is the only part of the human body that can't repair itself 🦷
.
It's been over three years since I'd been to the dentist.
The last time I went I was told I would probably need fillings but I needed to go get x-rays to make sure there was nothing else.
Well then I got really sick and couldn't get out of bed for a month. The next two months I was barely out of bed and then another month in bed. You can imagine my dental hygiene was fantastic through that time period right? I thought I was fucked and I was so embarrassed. I let three years pass before I got up the courage to book an appointment.
.
Chronic illness is not the friend of good dental hygiene.
It takes a lot of effort to clean and floss your teeth twice a day, everyday. Spoons we may not have.
But our teeth do not repair themselves.
.
Two months ago I made the decision to start taking steps to be better. This isn't a new year's resolution to floss more. I want to get back into good habits with my teeth.
.
Today with great self loathing for having left it so long and reluctance to face my consequences I had my dental appointment.
It. Went. GREAT.
She was lovely, totally put me at my ease. Everything was done in the one place: the assessment, x-rays, photos and cleaning. She went through everything in detail: I need to clean ALL of my teeth (making sure I get the gum line), I need to consistently floss and I have one tooth showing a small amount of decay and one other that needs to be watched (if I keep it clean it might be ok).
I only need one (1) filling. Phew!
She even got the discolouration off my front tooth!! I've asked other dentists and none have ever been able to. It was just leftover glue from braces that needed a bit more attention to remove. Had that stain since I was 16 and now it's gone!!
.
The cost? $0. Covered by the amount of my private health care rebate.

Hi, I’m Dan, I’m currently a serving medic in the Royal Navy and was recently diagnosed with Crohn’s this May 2019, I have had it for the past 6 years on and off but it kept getting misdiagnosed as stomach ulcers, appendicitis and other illness. 🔶
When I went to sea on deployment while undiagnosed I had to deal with daily stomach cramps and flare ups due to stress and tiredness. 🔶
Unfortunately due to my diagnosis I am being medically discharged from the Royal Navy however I have not let this set me back and I am attending uni in September 2020 to study diagnostic radiography. 🔶
After I left the RN, I was devastated about my military career however I am keeping positive and it goes to show there is always some good out of every bad news you get. I hope my story can be shared to help spread awareness to those In the military who are diagnosed with Crohn’s and think there’s no other career for them or aren’t sure how to progress in life after the Army, Navy or RAF.

This summer I’m all about having a #𝘚𝘶𝘯𝘊𝘰𝘯𝘴𝘤𝘪𝘰𝘶𝘴𝘚𝘶𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘳 because I’m preparing for a kidney transplant... Once I have my kidney transplant I’ll be on a bucket load of immune-suppressant drugs (for the rest of my life) leaving me very vulnerable to developing skin cancers. So I’m all about covering up & preventing sun damage.  I also want to set a good example of sun safety to my children. ⁣

PSA: For every woman that posts a photo of herself on Instagram in UNE PIECE and tags @calltimeonmelanoma and @une_piece, and says why she is having a #sunconscioussummer UNE PIECE will donate $5 to Call Time on Melanoma. It will run all Summer long till 29 February! How incredibly cool is that? I’m so proud to be part of this amazing campaign! Now I’m going to tag all the ladies I know who owns an @une_piece 👌🏻⁣

Health isn't all smoothies and kale, and you don't need to cut everything out to be healthy 🙅‍♀️
.
Food is a vital part of your health journey, and I love helping people nourish their bodies, but what I don't love is the fear around food that gets created with long-term full elimination diets.

For many, it’s not realistic to follow a full #aip diet - whether it’s a lack of time, finances, availability or support - which means you can feel left in the dark.

So how do you find a balance, and where do you start on this journey to nourishing your body and healing it?

You start by reducing processed foods, foods high in sugar, alcohol, caffeine and trans fats and increasing the amount of vegetables, fruits, omega rich foods like fish and flax seeds and whole grains.

What this can look like is adding an extra cup of fruit or vegetables per day, and keeping foods like baked goods, processed meats, energy and fizzy drinks and take-out to a minimum.

One small change, done consistently over time, can have a huge impact.

I know how tempting it can be to immediately go to a diet like Whole30 or AIP when your symptoms flare up, or how easy it is to feel fearful around certain foods - but as with everything, it’s what you do the majority of the time that counts.

You *can* be healthy and improve your symptoms without severe restrictions. You don’t have to overhaul your entire diet to see an improvement in your health. Personally, I still include foods like donuts and pizza into my diet, but the majority of my meals are whole, nutrient dense foods.
