  • #repost from @newyorkendometriosis, followed by an email I recently sent to a previous ob/gyn’s patient services email. I cannot even fathom how this information hasn’t gotten through to gynecologists. I have yet to find a single doctor in my state who’s website doesn’t offer birth control, Depo Provera, Lupron, or even a hysterectomy, as treatment for endometriosis. I cannot stress this enough, these are NOT the standard of care in the endometriosis community, and if your doctor suggests any of these options, please please please do your research before agreeing to anything. I cried for weeks after I left this particular doctors office. Facing chemotherapy and the very real possibility of a hysterectomy at 25 years old, I was devastated. I am thankful every single day for my intuition steering me in another direction. I won’t be able to have the surgery I need for most likely years, but I refuse to allow ignorance to make my condition worse. •

  • Before I do anything, I first do nothing. #todaysaffirmation⁣⁣
⁣

Do you need a reminder to rest, and rest without guilt? 🙋🏻‍♀️ Having a whole day free has me feeling very A.D.D. about everything I want (or feel the need) to do. My head reminds me that it's still uneasy from Sunday's migraine (the worst one I've had maybe ever?). Not to mention yesterday's activity... Yes, it's ok to slooooow down. So just a reminder to us all. REST! 🖤

  • Hey (Ayla) so it says in our bio 100% shameless so here you go. A good 7am #meltdown #cringe As much as I would love to give the illusion that I am some sort of “recovering” #schizophrenic the truth is that I don’t think it’s the kind of #mentalillness that just goes away with time. In fact I know it’s not. Factually really. It’s never going to go away. AND it’s sure as shit is not going to improve while reducing my meds to nothing. I’m okay with that, I’ll take the #cryingspells over the numbness of the #antipsychotics any day. 
Just a side note I am in no way encouraging any of the other #mentalillnesswarrior (s) to stop taking their meds. In fact DON’T stop taking your meds! 
There was a point in my life where I can say each and every pill was imperative to my health. If my pain wasn’t so debilitating at this point I probably wouldn’t be doing this medication removal with such intensity that I am. (I explained in my “pills, pills, pills” post my  medication dilemma) At this point my physical pain is my driving force. If I can just get some relief from my pain than maybe I can be a better, stronger aide to Hunter. Really that’s always been my true goal... I can’t really say much about #selfcare, because the truth is when I really think about why I’m doing this it’s not for me. It’s for him. All I really want is to be the best #caretaker and wife I can be. I’m not saying I don’t have my own thoughts and dreams, but when I’m literally responsible someone’s entire wellbeing, health, and quality of life I end up putting myself second. And that’s okay with me. Actually it’s more than okay, it’s so fulfilling and wonderful. 
So, surprise!! I was actually crying #happytears because I still can’t get over the fact that my life is so full of love. still, happy tears aside, what a #hotness I am. #loveandmarriage #cerebralpalsy #schizophrenia #chronicpain #fybromyalgia #chronicfatiguesyndrome #butyoudontlooksick #invisableillness Hey (Ayla) so it says in our bio 100% shameless so here you go.
