Making a not so good health day better #KindnessMatters #ActsOfKindness

Although my body felt very worn down today, muscles and joints hurting, and a great deal of fatigue, my day was made better by random acts of kindness from strangers. At Target the man wrangling carts saw me getting out of my car parked in a handicap spot and offered me a cart to lean on and told me to have a good day 😊. Then when I called to make two of my specialist appointments the two people helping me were so nice and accommodating and the one also told me to have a wonderful rest of my afternoon ☺️. It’s random acts of kindness like these that help me pick myself up when I may not be doing so well. So when you think the world maybe hopeless, just remember that kindness does matter!


In need of a good deed

Yesterday, on my way to work, there was a homeless man standing on the corner by my house. His sign read, "I'm in need of a good deed." I gave him some money and we had a very pleasant exchange.

His sign stuck with me throughout the day. It keeps popping in my mind. I think we are all in need of a good deed.

So many people are having a hard time right now. Almost everyone I talk to says how burned out they are. Being a social worker, I hear very personal things from people on a regular basis. People are going through things that you couldn't even imagine.

We never know what those around us are going through in their lives.

Please be kind, be generous, be a listening ear, be supportive to everyone you come into contact with. Go out of your way to help others.

Because I think we are all in need of a good deed ❤ #gooddeed #Bekind #KindnessMatters #Kindness

Be Kind to Yourself #KindnessMatters #Depression #affirmations #Forgiveness #resilience #IfYouFeelHopeless #quotablemagnets

Why is it so hard to be the best that we can be to ourselves? We suffer from chronic conditions already yet we focus our energy on others or outside forces. We ultimately suffer in the end! I feel I don’t have the energy most days to do all the things I need to do to live my best life. I saw this magnet on my refrigerator today and I lit up!

This quote makes me feel a little bit stronger.
It gives me a little more hope for today.
It allows me to look to tomorrow without fear!
A little... is a step in the right direction.

I HOPE this helps some of you, too! #fightyourfear #loveyourself

Supporting Trigeminal Neuralgia Day #Chatspace #MightyTogether #CheckInWithMe

Hello Mighty Family n Friends 🖐

How are you all today

I do hope you are warm n tucked up inside if its anything like the weather in The UK today very wet and windy 🌧🌫

This week is international Trigeminal Neuralgia day on October 7th . As you can see by the picture the colour is Teal.

It is one of my rare diseases and by sharing this with you I'm trying to raise more awareness.

There are other facial neuralgia's but this is the most common rare one. 🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️
I also have glossopharyngeal neuralgia too, I'm so lucky 🖐🦓

The best part is they make the names so hard to pronounce .
Its face pain, its already hard to talk why make the disease name unpronouncable!!!!! 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️REALLY
The pain is like being hit in the face by a baseball bat or a train or an electric shot. Again n again. Over n over . For hours or minutes.
Pain meds don't work as its nerve pain. Only anti seizure meds work which come with a whole host of side effects and don't always work for each person. It never takes the pain away.
There is no cure.

Thanks for listening guys

Love n hugs Tj 🦓🥰🤗💜💙🧡🐕🧚‍♀️🦷

Helping an elderly lady

There was only a few boxes of baking soda left due to everyone stock piling them.

Yesterday while I was at Hy-Vee grocery shopping, there was an elderly lady who needed help getting baking soda. She grabbed a container of chips to try to get it. I said “let me help you get it.” I asked her how many she wanted and she said “just one.” I told her to have a good night. The look on her face was shock. Like she was thinking, someone would actually help? To the elderly lady, there are still people out there that will help. But seems like they’d only help during a crisis or let alone take all the supplies off the shelf and leave nothing for the ones that are most susceptible to getting sick. Glad I could help that lady and show her that kind and helping people are still around. #helpthoseinneed #KindnessMatters #jaseminesjourney



I’m not planning on doing anything it’s just been a way to get feelings out.

Would anyone wonder
Would anyone care
If people realized I wasn’t there?
The phone stopped ringing
The invites quit coming
No one ever stopped by
People have just tossed me aside

It’s too hard seeing you sick, some say
Others say they know I can’t afford to go
They don’t like seeing me in pain
They can’t do anything to change it
So I’m just tossed aside

It hurts worse than my diseases
To realize I never really had true friends
Acquaintances is more like it
You don’t really need to keep up with them
They are the people you bump into
But never intend to call

I thought I was a good friend
I was always there when needed
But I guess it’s easy to toss people aside
When you don’t need them anymore

Would people come if I died
Would they fill the seats
Would they be sad and cry
Would they be mad I ruined their day
Would they be too busy to come

They may say kind things on Facebook
They may talk to my family
They may wonder why it happened
They may say what a shame

All they needed was to call
All they needed was return a text
All they needed was to stop by
Or acknowledge me reaching out

I guess no one will miss me
After the day they’ll move on
I won’t pass thru their minds at all
I never really mattered
No one really cared

So why fight painless oblivion
When it’s so tempting to go that way
No one will miss me
No one will ask
People will be better off if I left
