I feel so relaxed…

So, for once I decided I’m going to make a positive post! Here goes nothing…

In recent weeks I’ve had the money to buy all new furniture in my room, since all my old stuff was over 20 years old and was dying a very slow death. So I bought a chest of drawers, a bedside table and a desk.

It’s taken a while and a lot of mum’s help to put them all together and move the stuff around in my room. Take the old stuff out, put the new stuff in and then go through all of my clothes and whatnot.

I ordered a new LED lamp that I can either make brighter or more dim, and it has different types of light as well, which I thought was pretty nifty.

Anyway, now I have my desk, I’ve spent this evening going through my notes for my writing project(s) and what I hope will one day be my debut novel, with my laptop playing Grey’s Anatomy for background noise, and I’ve had a lovely cup of tea.

I feel so utterly and completely relaxed. I feel so at ease! It’s almost like magic. My room is spotless, and somehow so is my mind. My stress level has dramatically dropped! This is absolutely brilliant! I have my own little safe haven now.

I hope you’re all having a great week so far!

Flowers 💐 #peaceful #Kindness #heartfelt #calm

To describe my flowers I just call them glad. They were such a surprise! Pink is my favorite and I can see how my Creator has a perfect sense of humor and style. Peace is my practice.

New diagnosis, Finally.

For years I was misdiagnosed with neuropathy in my left leg. On Monday I was finally diagnosed with #CRPS . Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. I already had a feeling that it was CRPS. My EMG results helped solidify the diagnosis, and that I didn’t have neuropathy. I left the office yesterday feeling empowered more than anything else. I finally can say for sure what I am dealing with and I can keep doing research to proactively keep my quality of life decent. I also have #UlcerativeColitis , and #IrritableBowelSyndromeIBS so I try to be as proactive in my care as much as I can. Proactive with my diet, my exercise, my mental health, and knowing my limits. Thankfully, I have already been doing things to help my journey with chronic pain and chronic illness. It sucks being sick and in pain 24/7. What I am most thankful for is that I have such a wonderful support system, and I am capable of advocating for myself. If I had accepted my misdiagnosis of Neuropathy years ago, I would’ve never gotten the proper testing to find my true diagnosis. I am thankful for being stubborn, and I don’t treat a Doctors word as if it is the law. I do my own research because knowledge is power, and if I don’t stand up for myself, no one else will. I am at peace, and I am happy that now I can move on from this properly, and continue my life without wondering, “what is going on with me?” #CRPSWarrior #InflammatoryBowelDiseaseIBD #thankful #peaceful #InvisibleIllness #ChronicPain #ChronicIllness #movingforward #CBGoil #cbdproducts
