- I want you to think about what drives you. But I want you to think past the surface area. Past the number on the scale. Past the number on your jeans. Past your goal weight or your goal speed.
I mean what REALLY drives you. Is it stress relief? Is it because you want to take control of your life? Is it because you realize your one hour in the gym is the quietest your mind is going to get all day (one of my personal reasons)? Is it because deep down you know that YOU are the one one who can control your life? YOU are the only one that can fight for your own happiness? YOU are the only one who won’t settle for complacency? 💪
YOU have so much more power than you realize, so much more resolve, dedication, and strength. Find what REALLY drives you. Hold onto that when it burns, and you want to give up. When you don’t think you can possibly do one more rep, or go for ten more seconds. Turn your drive into a mantra and repeat it over and over - you CAN and you WILL do this!

- Morning everyone ✨
Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend! I spent it with lots of old school friends down our local marina 🕺🏿🍻. I always love catching up with people I haven’t seen for years and reminiscing about all our stories from school 😅.
We ended up having a few too many jäger bombs and danced the night away until around 5am 🤣. I find on nights out that I get lots of people approaching me (most of whom I don’t know) to ask weird and wonderful questions 🤯. My favourite this week was a bloke who came over to my friends and said ‘you better be looking after her😑’ as if I was hard of hearing. To his surprise I informed him that despite being in a wheelchair - I am able to function just like anyone else. I don’t expect my friends to have to ‘look after me’ everywhere I go. I’m not a pet 🤣🐶. I’m sure people have good intentions when they make daft comments but jheeeez it does get annoying 😅.
At the end of the night, where we live you have more chance of seeing the queen in Yates than managing to order a taxi home - so you have to flag one down🚕. This is always tricky as taxi drivers never pull over for me 😬. One did actually stop but when my friend told him we needed the boot open for my chair he said he ‘couldn’t be arsed’ and drove off!! Charming 🤣😭. Eventually after nearly an hour a taxi driver I’ve had before spotted me and offered to take us home 🙌🏻.
Today I’ve got a long list of cleaning to do 🏠🧼. Hope you all have a fab week!

- Day 19: Flare Ups •
Just write the word miserable across my forehead and hide it behind a smile. Everything and anything can spark a flare for me, the task can be simple like a long day or difficult like carrying boxes. I have yet to figure out what does and doesn’t trigger them because they are so random yet so common. I truly fear my job is going to set me in a flare I can’t bounce back from packing 700 bags this upcoming week. The worst flares are diaphragm flares, I’m constantly out of breath because my right half decides to quit inflating. •
Even if I’m in a big flare I try to act normal. I don’t talk about it much in hopes it’ll go away. In all honesty a normal flare for me would land someone else in the ER #mylife #mystory #paralysis #thoracicoutletsyndrome #reallife #journey #tos
- Castle of the Devil
Is this lakes original name.
The people could hear erry noises coming from the lake and didn't know its origin so they feared it and casted it a malevolent name.
Fearing the Unknown is deep rooted and in our DNA passed down from our Ancestors. With well intended purposes, it originally served in our survival. But fear is also debilitating. It causes us to go into flight or fight, or paralyzes us.
It is now know that those erry noises the native people heard from the lake was ice moving below the surface. Not the Devil stirring about.
Knowing this, I still observed myself thinking of the lake differently and entering its waters with caution.
Fear and the association we put on things bc of fear can create an illusion - an illusion that creates disconnect and distance.
And some times fear can be so deep rooted that we are blind to the Truth.
As we are in the midst of eclipse season, this potent time may allow fears to arise including those of this lifetime, lifetimes passed, and of our ancestors.
Sit with your fears, for they may not be yours but sit in your body. Listen to them. And let go of what no longer serves yourSelf.

пока рисовала иллюстрацию к статье про сонный паралич, вспомнила, как это однажды было у меня. По правде- так себе ощущеннецо💀 я тогда, еще подростком осталась дома одна. Заснула быстро, спала сладко, но... вдруг по среди ночи просто открываю глаза👀, смотрю в темноту⬛-а там.. бррр... ходит какое-то прямоходящее ужжжасное существо- он смотрит на тебя...ты смотришь на него.. а пошевелиться вообще не можешь!!! .. до сих пор мурашки... не помню чем все закончилось, но вот вроде до сих пор жива)) Для меня было интересно почитать про интерпретацию данного явления в древние века: говорили, что это жаба садится тебе на грудь,или же кикиморы пляшут. В Украине были "специальные " существа- мары👻, а в японии считали , что это один огромный демон👺 просто ставит на твою грудь свою ногу!(вот это ж им заняться нечем!)) #procreate #paralysis
- My sister Pebbles is sick. She has lost the use of her back legs and can’t stand up. She spent all afternoon on an IV in the clinic but we still don’t really know what’s wrong with her 😢
She’s a fighter though and is determined to drag herself around the floor to find the perfect spot. We’re hoping this is a good sign that she can fight whatever is causing this and get her back on her feet.
I want my biteyface partner back!

- Ce que ces patho ou toutes autres nous prennent ...
Je ne parlerai qu'en mon nom mais n'hesitez pas à mettre vos commentaires 😉
J'ai insisté très souvent auprès de mes proches pour essayer de faire comprendre mes maux mais c est usant alors à force je m'eloigne car on se demande si un jour ils comprendront ... voir nos proches parler de causes nobles certe mais ne jamais avoir un seul mot pour la notre c' est rageant et répéter et être jugé c est fatiguant ... Du jour au lendemain j'ai dû quitter le bureau je me suis retrouvé enfermé à la maison et depuis je n'y suis pas retourné ... cela fait un an et demi ... Mes enfants sont tous majeurs desormais ils peuvent faire leurs vies ...
En fait je me rends compte que je me suis vraiment isolée les seules personnes que je vois sont les Vrai celles qui ne m'ont jamais laissé qui ont été capable de m insulter les rares fois ou j ai voulu tout laisser tomber car j ai vraiment tout perdu à un moment entre la santé ma relation ma maison que je rends bientôt suite à cela et mon travail que je ne peux toujours pas excercer à ce jour malgré tous les essais médicamenteux et opératoires ...
Il faut l'avouer les idées sombres passent parfois lors de nos grosses crises par nos têtes surtout quand on a plus rien mais partent vite et heureusement... j'ai la chance de ne pas être de nature depressive car ce n'est pas le cas de tous ...
Pour une personne comme moi qui etait si speed et hyperactive je peux vous garantir que c est difficile on me dit que c'est la vie qu il faut l'accepter ...
J'adorais rire aux eclats, Avoir des fou rire, Parler, recevoir du monde, faire la fête, écouter la musique à fond tant de choses qu'on finit par ne plus faire...
Mais comme dit la chanson "speed"
Tu vibres encore ...
Et croyez moi la vie peut encore vous reserver de belles surprises ... 😊

- The Reeve Foundation @reevefoundation recently asked me to share my story for their new campaign #ReeveSeeUs.The goal of this campaign is to tell the world that those living with a disability want to be seen.
Since my accident, it’s been very important to me that I’m not defined by my injury. I want people to look past the wheelchair and see a wife, daughter, sister, teacher. I want people to see that I’m funny, a hard worker, brave, and silly.
I’m pretty new to living with a disability, but I learned very quickly that the world wasn’t designed for people in a wheelchair. There is a little tug at my heart every time I don’t fit under a table, there isn’t a ramp on a sidewalk, someone parks in the little space beside the handicap parking spot, or there are only stairs in public places. It’s really easy to think that NO ONE SEES ME or that I DON’T MATTER.
The truth is that I desperately want to be seen. But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have this feeling before my accident. I’ve always wanted people to truly see and accept me. I’ve always wanted a seat at the table. I’ve always wanted to fit in. I’ve always wanted to be loved. I’ve always wanted to feel like I mattered.
That’s where Jesus comes in. He sees me right where I am, even when no one else does. I don’t have to pretend to be someone I’m not or force myself to fit where I don’t belong. He sees me fully. I’m fully known by Him. I’m fully loved by Him. I always have a seat at His table.

- So, the Straw Ban Summer of 2018 wasn't enough. Thanks to laws in the UK passing and continued legislation in the US, we're back to this. Let's talk.
🔹️ Single-use, positional plastic straws were first used in hospitals to keep pts from choking or aspirating liquid into their lungs after procedures or while heavily medicated. These are concerns many disabled folks face in their daily lives, so use spread. They are an accessibility device. They can be just as important to survival as wheelchairs, canes, IVs and sterile tools.
🔸️ Personally, I depend on them. From my EDS disrupting my jaw and swallow, my EM and myoclonus wrecking my dexterity, POTS chancing that I faint when I tilt my head back, GP and esophageal spasms requiring slow, even swallows of liquid (lest I vomit), and about 7 other reasons - I depend on straws. I cannot and do not drink from cups and haven't since I was a teen.
🔸️ Alternatives are great for abled folks! And even some disabled folks! But they aren't an option for all - for the manyyy reasons listed above. At home, I try to use acrylic, but it DOES cut up my mouth, and since it's not positional (w/ my dysphagia this bad) I keep choking. My mom washes my dishes every 3 days, which isn't exactly safe (mold risk), but I do try. Other alternatives don't work at all; single-use would be safer.
🔹️I fkg love the ocean. But this is performative environmentalism. It only dents <.1% of ocean waste, and there are other solutions far more effective than bans. Esp when many need them to survive and the gatekeeping or making people "prove" they need one is dangerous. Make them all the same color, improve sorting tech, ask people to cut them first, and leave clearly marked alternatives for ableds beside single-use for others. These all create SUBSTANTIAL harm reduction.
🔸️If you're abled and so passionate about BANS - ask yourself why YOU can't just simply stop taking plastic ones? Is your willpower that bad you need them banned from you to resist? And why are turtle injuries more important to you than disabled humans' LIVES? Turtles have far greater threats to their survival. Why endanger both our lives by ignoring these risks? Don't.
