As many of you know my health has been bad for almost 9 months now, and the last few days have been particularly tough. I’ve taken it easy and spent a lot less time on my phone and social media...the break has definitely done me good 💗
-
Sometimes, even if there isn’t a specific reason, taking a timeout can be really worth while 🌸
-
Do you take regular breaks from technology and social media?

  • Have you been given a 'label'?
🧐🧐
One of the biggest problems with modern healthcare is that we try to put everyone in a box.
🗃️🗃️
Once in the box, you are given the drug for that box, and often remain in that box for the rest of your life.
👍👍
Diagnosis is important, but it often tells us absolutely nothing about what is causing the decline in health for that individual person.
🤔🤔
I had an interesting conversation with a young girl recently who is convinced she has fibromyalgia. The many tests she has had are inconclusive, doctors are struggling to find an appropriate 'box' to put her in, and she feels like more and more she is being taken less seriously despite her severe pain and fatigue.
..
.
When I asked her what she thought was the cause of her poor health she said 'it's definitely the fibromyalgia!'...
.
And when I asked her what she then thinks is causing the fibromyalgia she said:
'I have had a poor diet all my life, never exercised, burned the candle at both ends for the last 5 years and was in a toxic relationship which has given me emotional trauma..'
😳
😳
Are all these things enough to cause someone to be in a chronic sympathetic response, and to cause mitochondrial dysfunction, which lead to a bunch of symptoms which collectively can be called fibromyalgia?
🙄🙄
Suddenly a label like fibromyalgia makes sense!
.
There is always a story and a person behind the label, and if we can take the time to understand them, we can work to restore health.

  • I have a bee farm.😂 yes, that’s why this page is predominantly black and yellow. We have here two bumblebees, stealth and regular version, from the transformers animated series!

I’m featuring them since this is a teaching file on the use of invert function in your dicom viewer and its role in diagnosis. I have a very subtle opacity in the right lower lung which may be undetected on plain radiograph. However, if we use invert, that area of haziness pops out and helps us get our diagnosis.

  • När #rutiner försvinner och lusten får styra blir det lätt enformigt.

Skärmen är ofta ett verktyg för #återhämtning och en #flykt från en obegriplig verklighet, en plats med #vänner och en känsla att lyckas.

Det är svårt att komma på saker att göra med en #npf som hämmar fantasin. 

Och för mycket av allt blir mer än kropp och själ kan mäkta med. Inget är bra i allt för stor dos.

Kroppen behöver få röra sig. Behöver få frisk luft och sol. Hjärnan behöver variation och utmananing. Självkänslan behöber få testa och klara andra saker.

Sommarlovsbingon är en räddning, där varje rad ger en uppmuntran att försöka. Och målet blir ett pris att vara stolt över. Den kan skapas med fler eller färre rader och vinsten anpassas individuellt. 

Med ny bricka varje vecka kan allt få komma med och brickan kan anpassas till väder och semesterplaner. Eller en bricka hela sommaren och tätare vinster.

(blomman på baksidan kan vara roligare att skapa än att undersöka det där nya konstiga som finns på framsidan)

  • In her forties, Laura started to experience health issues. At first it was migraines, then seizures. After that her health continued to deteriorate as her constant state of flight or fight manifested in serious ways, She was diagnosed with Habba Syndrome, a gallbladder problem so unknown, she was featured on an episode of Mystery Diagnosis. Although She had always eaten well, and taken good care of herself, She had not managed her stress and it was taking its toll. It was time to start her “clean journey”. This meant understanding labels, ingredients and her own role and choices in healing herself. Changing her eating habits was somewhat easy. Her doctor told her to stop wearing perfume. She figured, what’s the big deal? Leaving her perfume behind was one of the last steps on her journey and how She came to co-found Adoratherapy. 
Watch the episode of Mystery diagnosis here, it’s 15mns, you won’t believe how She has recovered from this debilitating illness brought on by stress. Is stress making you sick?

  • It took 3 years post-injury for the mis-use and overuse to break down the right side of my body. Followed by  2 years until orthopedic surgeons gave up on figuring out why. Then all it took was 1 negative test for my neurologist to diagnose me with #CRPS. There was another 4 years of self-advocacy to get that CRPS diagnosis removed from my chart, and new diagnostic testing to begin. Now today, 9 years 8 months and 11 days after my original injury (16 to 26), and I finally have a diagnosis that can be fixed. It won’t fix it all, but it will fix some and that’s more than I ever thought. Most impactful though, was when my doctor said “you were right, there is something here.” I’ve never cried so many happy tears #mysterydiagnosis #solved

  • My heart sank so hard when I opened the mail to find this, I swear it was going to drop right out of my body.

This is my 15-year-old baby face on a handicap placard. This picture, taken the day I got my learners permit, is still my current license picture. That girl had no idea the roller coaster that laid ahead, my health was wonky but stable back then.

Last month I began having conversations with my primary doc about what makes school (and a million other things) so hard for me. She asked me to describe my worst days and we began brainstorming ways to make things a little easier.

The past year brought on new neuro concerns, careful watch over that decline & last week, a new diagnosis of hemiplegic ataxia — basically, the left side of my body has stopped working in coordination with the rest of my body. I fall a lot, my balance is way off, I can’t walk very far without needing to rest my muscles are very weak and sore. We ruled out the scary things like brain bleeds and stroke, but still trying to figure out this sudden decline in motor skills.

It’s devastating to watch your body fall apart with no explanation. I don’t want to need this, but my body does need it & I’m working on accepting this new normal.

  • I consider myself to be a genuinely low maintenance person. A lot of people see my journey as being influenced “negatively” by chronic illness — of course I wouldn’t choose to struggle with illness if I had a choice but I don’t. This IS my life, I just choose to face it with gratitude each and every day. BUT today, I do have GOOD news to share!

First of all, I’ve never been given a long sleeved hospital gown, nor one with pockets, and I’ve worn a lot of hospital gowns! This deserved to be documented. (I’m not in the hospital, just getting some scans)

I’ve been really hesitant to write up a GI update… because it’s kind of steady for the first time in years! 🙊 If we were to back up a little, I had surgery to address MALS (a congenital anomaly) & subsequent intestinal failure 9 months ago. These past 9 months have been absolute hell, much worse than pre-surgery — nearly weekly blood transfusions, unfathomable pain, constant ER trips & hospital admissions.

We’re just now starting to learn these challenges were related to an error made during my surgery and/or my inpatient stay/post-op complications. I’m not going to get into the gory details here because I am in the 1%. There are many people who are going into this life changing surgery scared out their minds, just like I was.

These complications brought on a bunch of scans, tests and many new doctors; I’m still mind blown that none of them caught it. I couldn’t maintain proper blood levels so my bone marrow stopped reproducing, bringing oncology into the picture who really set this discovery into motion.

Long story short, back in July I arrived in the ER bleeding internally. I was admitted, had an endoscopic surgery to repair this error and my feeding tube was replaced. Since then, so many things have become easier. Don’t get me wrong — I’m still nauseous and in pain everyday but sometimes it’s not ALL day, which is a very welcome change! My energy levels have increased and I even gained a couple pounds 💪 There’s still a lot of work to be done, but this has been my first sign that healing from this is even possible.

  • The face of one highly exhausted lady rehydrating after a loooong day 😅 I usually do my “pink drink” right when I get up for the day. I’m a mess without it — seriously, an increase in dizziness, tremors, air hunger, fatigue… but that means it’s doing something good for my body! Double dosing on my pink drink today because I had PT, school, work, went to the gym & everyone around me is sick 😷

I won’t be working or going to school the next two days, instead I’ll be spending it in the hospital learning more about this crazy body with appointments, treatments & surgery consults. I’m quite sure it doesn’t count as rest, but I’ll take it. I am, however, putting in the sweat equity (literally) to prove to my medical team & myself that my body is more than any prognosis.

  • a short summary of where we started with  Life with Layla Rae... Layla battles 2 life threatening conditions: 
1. Inflammation- when she was close to her 2nd birthday we rushed her to the hospital and learned that she had suffered multiple strokes. You see, Layla’s inflammation is so high that it got into her brain. The little girl that I post videos of running, laughing and smiling has major brain damage. Leaving her no choice but to make new connections, if she was ever going to gain motor functions again. She works hard everyday for this. And we work hard everyday to prevent this from happening again. 
2. Immune deficiency- right before Layla’s 1st birthday, before we knew about risks of her getting sick, we almost lost her. She was in the ICU fighting a common bacterial infection that turned sepsis because her in ability to fight infections. We were told by doctors that they were doing everything they could to save her life, but we were loosing her. She is now homeschooled and works hard everyday to live a “normal” life. And we work hard everyday to prevent this from happening again. ~we are a family trying to find the balance...everyday

  • ℓєт’ѕ gєт ρєяѕσηαℓ ❤️ *long post*
I know Instagram has so many mixed opinions behind it, especially since it seems like everyone these days it out here tryna get sponsors or followers or whatever it may be, I fully support the hustle, get it if it’s there 👏🏼 it doesn’t really matter tho does it, at the end of the day you’re still here, scrolling, tapping or hash-tagging. So I’ve decided I want to do a little more. I want to give my time to things that give back to my quality of life. There’s a side to Instagram that people use to inspire others, maybe places to travel or how to decorate your home, people are sharing their lives to inspire and I love it! -
So I’d love to join in, and hopefully inspire at least one person with my story. ❤️ are you with me?  I’m wanting to share my personal story that goes WAY back, so if you’re with me stay tuned, hopefully I can bring some hope to some girls that have been in my shoes for a change 💛❤️🧡

There’s a side to Instagram that people use to inspire others, maybe places to travel or how to decorate your home, people are sharing their lives to inspire and I love it! -
    So I’d love to join in, and hopefully inspire at least one person with my story. ❤️ are you with me? I’m wanting to share my personal story that goes WAY back, so if you’re with me stay tuned, hopefully I can bring some hope to some girls that have been in my shoes for a change 💛❤️🧡

As many of you know my health has been bad for almost 9 months now, and the last few days have been particularly tough. I’ve taken it easy and spent a lot less time on my phone and social media...the break has definitely done me good 💗

Sometimes, even if there isn’t a specific reason, taking a timeout can be really worth while 🌸

Do you take regular breaks from technology and social media?

  • Thank you to everyone who made my birthday such a memorable one yesterday, I am so grateful! (including my staff who are apparently better at patient care than they are at spelling “birthday.” 🤣)

  • Science Sunday!
🔥🔥🔥
The coolest part about science is you can ask yourself real questions about how things work in the human body and then you actually test them and understand the answer on a pathophysiology and/or a molecular basis. The human body is so much more complex than we can imagine. The interactions between the microbes in our intestine is specific and unique to the cell type, metabolic state, and location of the cell. Each microbe has a complex set of genes and metabolic pathways that are transcriptionally regulated and active based on environment and/or the state of the microbes and the host.
🤔🤔🤔
As much as we do know, there is still so much that we do not know! In our gut, we have what we call the Enteric Nervous system (ENS), it is a system of neuronal bundles and pathways that we in the field of neurogastroenterology call “the second brain”. I was at a 3 hour seminar on Friday which was a birthday seminar for one of my mentors who is 80years old! He discovered the serotonin receptor, is the father of neurogastroenterolgy, and has been studying the ENS for 60 years! He has published over 500 papers on the same system and he still admits we have only scratched the surface of understanding it’s true complexity! 🍎🍎🍎
One word of advice he left all of us with: those who stick around, who always show up, who put in the work, who stay diligent, will leave a legacy and will continue to move up the ranks and make lasting contributions to the scientific community. Science isn’t about overnight success, it is about reading, studying, testing, learning, hypothesizing, analyzing, and evaluating what we know and what we think we know.

  • Some #Coronavirus facts:
1. Early on, only people with severe illnesses were being tested for coronavirus, so current numbers are likely overestimating the severity, but underestimating the total number of cases.
2. there is certainly concern about this novel virus, (with no great treatment and no vaccine), it is unlikely to be as deadly as the Influenza virus is each year. 3. Washing your hands frequently and being mindful not to touch your face when in crowded places is the best way to prevent catching these respiratory viruses. 🤧
