Something I own but never use is...

Simplifying our lives requires us to examine and reflect on the different aspects of our daily routines, habits, and surroundings. This includes taking out, changing, or adjusting what we feel isn’t necessarily adding value to our day-to-day. That can even mean looking through our belongings to see what we have, but rarely (or ever) use.

As you take a look around your space, what can you find that you own that you don’t use or haven’t used in a really long time? What can you do with that belonging that will help simplify that “clutter”?

Well stupid o clock is not my favorite time to wake up

Woke up at 420am with horrible tummy pains. Now I can't get back to sleep. My back really hurts right now. But I have gas pains that are radiating to my lumbar. I'm probably going to have a big BM. I didn't drink my miralax yesterday cuz I had a big BM yesterday morning.

I woke up to a few texts from friends and my crush. They messaged me when I was asleep . I fell asleep at 8pm. So I got about 8 hours of sleep. But I'm still exhausted.#CheckInWithMe Update: I fell back asleep at 530 and slept till 8.

The first half of my day was good... Then it went downhill fast

This morning I felt good. My tummy didn't hurt, and neither did my back or hips. I didn't have a migraine either. I drank a bottle of adaptogenic coffee and then made a pot of regular coffee. I felt upbeat and kinda happy.

Then it all came crashing down.

Now my tummy and my back hurts. I'm shaky and nauseous. I've got a dull ache in my head. My hips are throbbing. I'm feeling very down and sad for no apparent reason. This really sucks.

I drank a second bottle of coffee and now I'm sipping on some Gatorade. My eyes feel awful. I'm exhausted. I ate a sandwich for lunch. I've been fighting the urge to vomit.

What’s the most frustrating aspect of your health journey right now?

Whether it’s waiting for an appointment, dealing with a new symptom or flare, tinkering with your medications, reworking your lifestyle/diet, or starting a new treatment, health comes with a whole lot of stumbling blocks.

What’s tripping you up right now? Mighty staffer @xokat has started seeing some new autoimmune symptoms which are a taking a hit on her self-esteem (but she’s working on building up that confidence again!).
