Stairs... Sad but true right now

Not so much out of breath, but holding my breath because of the back pain and can't straighten up. Trying to laugh more today. #sacroiliacjointdysfunction #Arthritis #spinal

Just me

Slept well for the first time in days last night, and this morning felt really good. Got up and decided to let my husband sleep so he didn't have to go get me a cup of coffee. I went downstairs on my own and came back up and now the sacroiliac pain and lower back pain is almost unbearable again. Sitting is fine but standing I can feel the pressure and feels like my hips are cracking. The stairs are murder. Been taking cyclobenzaprine and ibuprofen. Using ice and heat off and on. I need this arthritis flare to end! I have things I need to get done and I feel like my body is locked in place and I can't just relax and get free. #Osteoarthritis #RheumatoidArthritis #sacroiliacjointdysfunction #sacroiliac #ChronicPain #

Procedure Day, again 🤷🏼‍♀️ #ChronicPain #BackPain #sciatica #ChronicIllness #MightyPets

Today was another outpatient procedure for my back, number 4 for this year and the last one of 2020 wahooo!!! This time my mom and I brought miss Poppy girl 🐕 with us, so I could see her as soon as I was brought out! 😇 My amazing mama kept her busy for 2.5 hours. Of course I had pain during/after which I expect 70% of the time with these procedures. But my tears turned to smiles as I showed the nurses my little pearl wearing girl!! We matched with pink jackets today 💕 She was such a good girl and loved all the attention she was getting!
I’m hoping I get some relief from this one, my awesome anesthesiologist called me while I was eating dinner to check on me, he’s the best! Sending everyone lots of strength and love this week, Poppy and I are thinking of you all!💕🙏🏼✨😇 #ChronicPain #BackPain #RheumatoidArthritis #ChronicIllness #Anxiety #MastCellActivationDisorder #Migraines #Backinjury possible #ComplexRegionalPainSyndrome #Insomnia

I love them so!
I find plants and gardening to be so centering and relaxing. Pain stops me from doing as much physical work as I’d like, but I’m coming to a place of acceptance with it and find just “being” in the presence of plants/trees to be enough. I am enough exactly as I am, and so are you. 😍 #Spring #Hope #Flowers #ChronicPain #ParsonageTurnerSyndrome #Neuropathy #Arthritis #sacroiliacjointdysfunction #Fibromyalgia
