Let’s change it up a bit. These after photos are great (especially when you are having a bit of a Marilyn moment with the wind) but, I’d like to show you the process. Most days I feel worn out, tired, and achey.  It’s really hard for me to get out of the bed. On the other hand, my job requires a lot of meetings where you have to look put together. This is one of those days. Here’s the tools I use to get ready quickly when I don’t feel like washing my hair or have minimal effort. I’m not a huge fan of the stamp eyeliner I’m using because it smudges a lot, but it is quick and easy. I prefer the E.L.F. Liner pens. The Thrive mascara is okay, but it clumps and makes my eyes feel heavy. I prefer some good old maybelline falsies. I bought this stuff, so I’m going to use it, but then I’ll go back to my cheap products that provide the same results, if not better. I hate the thrive lip liner and gloss. Very messy, sticky, and won’t stay in place. So, my big splurge item is my MAC retro matte liquid lip color. I have shaky hands and drink coffee all day. This guys covers a multitude of sins (crooked lines) and stays out for the most part. Also makes my lips look fuller. I used a tinted moisturizer with some highlighter cream mixed. So that’s it.

Lumbar puncture yesterday afternoon ✅ 
The opening pressure of my spinal column was still ridiculously high after all these non invasive treatments. So in simpler terms -this means I’m going to have to get another shunt soon. 🤞🏻hopefully it can wait until after the semester is over! #prayers #idiopathicintracranialhypertension #chronicpain #5timebrainsurgerysurvivor but at the end of the day my health has to go first 🙏🏻💗 also yes I love my lil sloth 🌼

Swipe ⬅️ to see how many spoons are delegated to daily tasks.
_

Every task that we engage in requires a spoon. When the spoons are gone, the only way to get more spoons is to rest and wait for spoons to regenerate the next day. This causes us to ration our spoons throughout the day. If we run out of spoons, we have to rest. No spoons, no energy. Many people living with conditions ranging from cancer to endometriosis to anxiety to depression to diabetes, self-identify as “Spoonies” and use the theory to explain their lives to people who may not understand the extent to which illness affects our lives.
_

For me, how I use my spoons depends on if it's a working day or not. If I'm working that day, I use my spoons to get ready for work, to commute to and from work, to get my job done. If it's not a working day, I use my spoons to get household chores done. If I have any spoons left at the end of the day, I try to exercise. 
_

If you had only 12 spoons per day, how would you use them? What do you do when you run out of spoons?

I leave to work well before the sun comes up and since it’s winter (even in california😆) I usually shiver in the car until the heater gets going. But, I’ve started keeping a blanket in the car and it’s helped a lot with knee pain.  #chronicpain #jointpain #jointpainrelief #winterisnotmyfriend #chronicillness #HEDS

“I don’t have to be anything at all. I don’t even have to be myself, because there is no such thing as not being myself. I am inescapably myself.” ~ Mooji .
.
.
I’m just being myself, whoever the heck that is. Society has so many standards for beauty and success, but if you’re a spoonie you almost categorically fail to meet them. .
.
.
You shouldn’t allow this to make you feel lacking in any way. I’m a little unconventional, and I’m sure some of the people I know object to me talking about chronic illness online and sometimes I share too much. But you know what, I’m real. .
.
.
There is a real power that comes from battling adversity and sometimes you fight a battle you know you can’t win, but that’s courage. Courageous people change the world and make it a better place. Everyone who talks about invisible illness and disability is my hero! Who’s your favorite spoonie account, please tag them down below so I can discover some new accounts

Invisible disabilities include chronic pain, fatigue, dizziness, cognitive dysfunctions, brain injuries, learning differences and mental health disorders, as well as hearing and vision impairments.

Let's remember that everyone is fighting a battle that we know nothing about!

Invisible wounds are the hardest to heal, for their closure depends upon the love of others, on patience, understanding and the tender gift of time. - Author unknown

💪Going to hit 50 miles by the 31st, not too shabby...I know rhere are many others who can log many more miles, but for me this just feels really good!

When you feel that burning sensation on your face like a sunburn yet you’ve not been in the sun. It’s called “flushing” and when you’re a mast cell patient it’s very common to break out in a flush daily and it’s not isolated to just your face...so when you see a person flushed it may be a symptom from a chronic condition and as we all know understanding and a little kindness goes a long way. ❤️
