On Saturday I got to go ice sk

On Saturday I got to go ice skating. It was hard, but I had to do it. I don't have a lot of energy these days, but since I HAVE to work, I'm trying to squeeze in a bit of fun too. (It's good for the mental health.) The cost for a couple hours of fun was that I spent the entire next day in bed...I napped almost 4 hours, but was down all morning and all night after...I physically couldn't get my body up for more than a couple minutes at a time. I read about the "Spoon Theory" last year, but I brushed it off because I didn't feel like it applied to me. As my health has gotten worse I've started to grasp that it does. I only had one job today so I ran 2 errands after work and spent some time making food. Had to cancel other plans for tonight... I can only do so much. My body is so worn. I took 100mg caffeine at 6pm and still couldn't manage to get off the couch for 4 hours. I get it now.😪😪

Have you ever said

Have you ever said "why me, God?!" . . If you're fighting an autoimmune disease I'm sure you have said something like that many times . . I know I have and I know why I went through what I went through . . You see I was angry and turned away from faith as a teenager due to some things that were happening in my family life. I would become so angry whenever someone would mention His name. . . One day in 2012 (or early 2013) when I was the sickest I had been with my colitis, I read a testimony from one of my biz mentors and i couldn't stop reading it. I was so drawn to it that I immediately bought the book she recommended about praying circles over the things you want. My husband thought I was crazy! He was a person of faith but he knew that I definitely was not so this was hard for him to understand. . . From 2013 to 2014 I started reading the Bible, I joined a church, I made my 1st communion and confirmation, I went into remission for the first time with my colitis, i met the most amazing GI dr who changed my life, I learned about health and fitness, I learned how food is medicine, my biz took off and I quit my full time job to be a part time lifestyle coach! . . God revealed something to me through that post! He was trying to get through to me and have a relationship! It was at my lowest point when I was desperate for relief with my disease that I was finally receptive to His calling! Had I not been vulnerable I may have never heard Him. . . I knew that I needed Him, I couldn't fight this disease on my own. I knew He wanted me to learn all I could and to share what I had done to get myself from the sickest I had been into remission and it is the reason why I share so much today! . . I never used to talk about my disease. I was embarrassed! When I landed in the hospital and was diagnosed my parents weren't there. They had no idea I was even sick because I kept it all to myself. I hid my disease. I hid it for years but then when God revealed to me what He wanted me to do I started sharing. I started slowly and didn't get into detail, but over time it has gotten much easier for me to share the ugly days. . . My prayer is that I can help just 1 person 🙏🏼💕

So our stress levels of course

So our stress levels of course affect our skin in many ways! In the busy days many of us experience it can be easy to forget that our health in every aspect is so important! I’m a giver by nature, and there are more days than not that I can go all day without a meal or a break because my focus is always on others and their needs. It’s a huge blessing no doubt but I am still human, and days like today it kind of took a toll on me and my colitis flared up this evening 😣 one of the first signs I have when I get a flare up is a bright red face telling me I’m inflamed, and I’ll get some breakouts (thank goodness my skin is in peeling mode 🤘🏼) stress affects our skin by forming wrinkles and breakouts. If you’re having a case of the mondays, take a deep breath, count your blessings, and think of the amazing things you have waiting for you!! #selflove #skincare #skincaretips #pancolitis #acne #rosacea #stresskills #loveyourskin #skinspiration

This was the last photoshoot I

This was the last photoshoot I had before my health started fading drastically. Three yrs and 5 different Drs said I was fine and it wasn't until this summer where I literally almost died that they finally took me seriously. Point of the story is, if you KNOW something is wrong physically or mentally and your Drs say otherwise, keep fighting until you get every test and screening possible and don't settle for no like I did.... because now I'm fighting everyday for my life and its so hard to want to keep going when I'm in so much pain. But to all my fellow brethren fighting for their lives for one reason or another, we got this and we will live. I strive to be this girl again, I miss her so much and I will be her again but stronger. #crohnsdisease #autoimmunedisease #crohnscolitis #ulcerativecolitis #crohns #keepfighting #pancolitis
