This is my grandfather the day after we got to Chicago(top). We didn't tell him I was coming we wanted to surprise him, since I had only been walking a couple months at the time he was soooo shocked to see me!!! The look on his face was priceless!!! I've been way too sick to go on a plane trip for yrs, (I was even surprised I was able to make it😳) He said he was so proud of me☺️!!! The day before we were supposed to leave my mother found him on the kitchen floor. We called 911 and he barely made it to the hospital in time. He's still in the hospital, he has a lot going on (he's 84). I'm so thankful to God that I was finally well enough to visit him, and that I had a chance to spend 4 whole days laughing and chatting with him☺️😇 * • * • * • * • * • #autoimmunedisease #rheumatology #rheumatism #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicillnesses #ra #footpain #jointsupport #immunediseases  #rheumatoidarthritisawareness #rheumatologist #orthopedics #arthritisfoundation #arthritisawareness #orthopedicsurgery  #lupus #wheelchairlife #juvenilerheumatoidarthritis #learningtowalk #painmanagement  #jointpain #painrelief  #rheumatoidarthritis #autoimmune #wheelchair #physicaltherapy #godisable #disabled #disability
BALANCING WORK WITH HAVING RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS 📍 Ohhhh how the struggle has been real!  Started off in 2013 trying to get into management, diagnosed in 2015, was promoted in 2015 to a travel agent (which was the next step to getting in to management), then in 2016 was promoted to a supervisor...meanwhile with no breaks. I pushed my body way too hard & should have gave myself time & rest. By the time I got into management last year I was done physically & mentally which is why my doctor put me on a 6 week leave of absence. 📍Why it took me this long to realize the I rather take a step down & feel good & put my health first ☝🏼 is beyond me! 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ but now I am & I couldn’t be more excited. 📍 I do have FMLA ( Family Medical Leave Act) which protects my job if I need to call out sick due to my RA. 📍 Learning lesson: worry about that yourself because no one else will! If you are going through a flare up that you can’t get through at work it’s OKAY TO CALL OUT! Listen to your body 😊 #rheumatoidarthritis #rheumatoidarthritisawareness #chronicillness #chronicpain #autoimmunedisease
I already take melatonin and theanine, but I did get L-theanine & L-tryptophan from my uncle's store as well (not sure where I put those bottles😬)! These supplements are all great for a more restful sleep and anxiety, especially if you have chronic pain like me! I take them every night😴 • * • * • Side note: These won't KNOCK you out like xanax, but if you take too many of these you'll for sure live to see the next day😛Can't beat that!!! • * • * * • * #autoimmunedisease #rheumatology #rheumatism #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicillnesses #ra #footpain #immunediseases  #rheumatoidarthritisawareness #rheumatologist #orthopedics #arthritisfoundation #arthritisawareness #orthopedicsurgery  #lupus #wheelchairlife #juvenilerheumatoidarthritis #learningtowalk #naturalremedies #naturalcures #naturalsleepaid #melatonin #restfulsleep #painmanagement #naturalremedy #jointpain #painrelief #naturalmedicine #rheumatoidarthritis
Sunday Reflection: I work out almost every day, count every macro I eat & track my progress. It’s a lifestyle I love. Being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 19, I almost let it take control of me but I realized I have control of my health. I’ve had my ups & downs but I’m seeing progress. It’s a life long journey and takes time. Even though I’ll have this disease forever, I’ll always have the control. ♥️💪🏼 . . #rheumatoidarthritis #rheumatoidarthritisawareness #iifym #macros #girlswholift #progress #progressnotperfection #loveyourself #fitlife
The shots don't look as bad as they fill. My lips are still peeling horribly but I am not losing as much hair at least. The shots and my lips burn though. My skin just burns where the red patch are from where the evil latex bandages touched me. My muscles only burn if I move my neck or right shoulder. The swelling isn't too horrible. It still makes my upper back have the dang hunch back look. The big BUMMERS of having rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. But I got dressed and didn't hide in my bed curled into a ball so it is a GOOD day!! 😁👊🏻🖖🏻🤘🏻😂🤣😂😘 #rheumatoidarthritisawareness #lupusawareness #nervepainawareness #nervepainithurts #chronicpainsucks #humanbarometer #rastrong #rawarrior #lupusninja #uniquelyspecial #alwaystimetosmile #smile #fakeit  #beyou #ihaventkeeledoveryet #iamstillkicking #motherofsons #marriedlife #life #live #love #laugh #bestrong #believe #ineedacureoriwanttobebionic #bionicbeccaplease #gotstemcells #hopefaithandlove

I found a few promising bits of information on Multiple Sclerosis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I thought Id share them so you can go forth with your own research and possibly help yourself. I like to see hope in a world where they shove meds down our throats first then think after we have suffered repercussions from those meds. I am not a doctor. These options seem to me as healthy alternatives. Decide for yourself.  #hope #multiplesclerosis #rheumatoidarthritisawareness #rheumatoidarthritis #rheumatoidarthritiswarrior #suggestions. #healthisinyourhands #naturalmedicine
I've never heard of this cissus before, my uncle said it's good for weight loss, stress/sleep, and joint pain!!!! I took it mostly for weight loss (ya know, bc I got kinda squishy from being in the wheelchair so long haha😛)!!! I think it's supposed to work by burning fat, for me it seemed to help with appetite suppression though! The name on the bottle, KMT, is my uncle's store in I'm not sure about who else sells it. They do take phone orders though👍☺️ * • * • * • * • * • * • * • * #autoimmunedisease #rheumatology #chronicpain #ra #immunediseases  #rheumatoidarthritisawareness #rheumatologist  #arthritisawareness #orthopedicsurgery  #lupus #juvenilerheumatoidarthritis #naturalremedies #naturalcures #kneereplacement #hipreplacement #painmanagement #naturalremedy #jointpain #painrelief #naturalmedicine #rheumatoidarthritis #fibromyalgia #inflammation #antiinflammatory #cissus #fatburn #burnfat #fatburning #wheelchairlife #wheelie
My uncle Dr. Ceaser and my aunt gave me these enzymes! I have a LOT of scar tissue, not just in my replaced joints it's in my neck, hands, EVERYWHERE, and it really limits my range of motion😬eek!!! My aunt uses it and she said customers really like it for recovering from surgeries(she works in the health food store as well)! I have a lot though and I've had it for yrs (scar tissue) so I didn't think it'd help much but it actually does work!!!! Idk if it's breaking up scar tissue, decreasing inflammation or both in my joints but I definitely noticed a difference right away after taking these! I haven't been taking them long, I'm excited to see what'll happen after taking it for a longer period of time☺️ * It may be a good alternative to prednisone for anyone looking to decrease inflammation naturally! * • * • I got the list of benefits from a site called: onlineholistichealth.com • * • * • #autoimmunedisease #rheumatology #cysticfibrosis #fibroids #chronicpain #ra #immunediseases  #rheumatoidarthritisawareness #rheumatologist  #arthritisawareness #orthopedicsurgery  #lupus #juvenilerheumatoidarthritis #naturalremedies #naturalcures #kneereplacement #hipreplacement #painmanagement #naturalremedy #jointpain #painrelief #naturalmedicine #rheumatoidarthritis #enzymes #scartissue #fibromyalgia #inflammation #antiinflammatory #immunesystem #holistichealing
2 IV’s and 5 sticks later I was finally done for the day...jeez 😒 #somanybruises #rheumatoidarthritis #rheumatoidarthritisawareness #lupus #lupusawareness #tiredofbeingsick

Not sure if this Paleo diet Is a good idea. I feel way worse than when I started. On a vegan diet, food was so digestible, not this heavy feeling I have in my stomach. Ugh, in a lot of pain today and the thought of eating meat grosses me out. Going to just have a green smoothie and detox juices and vegetables. On a positive note found out that nutritional yeast, which I put on a lot of my vegan dishes can be an autoimmune flare trigger. . . . #rheumatoidarthritis #rheumatoidarthritisawareness #rheumatoidarthritiswarrior #hashimotos #hahimotos #vegan #plantbased #plantstrong #plantbaseddiet #juicing #smoothie #smoothieoftheday
Anyone in chronic pain can relate to this. When it rains, Pain gets worse. Like if you suffer in silence. #youarenotalone #chronicpainfighter #chronicpainsucks #rheumatoidarthritisawareness
24 hours post op and already working on flexibility 30° angles to start and PT starts tomorrow. Follow up went great today but the tear was worse than originally thought. I am feeling great though just a little tired.  Thank you everyone for your love and prayers. ❤💪 #ra #rawarrior #fibromyalgia #fightlikeagirl #tough #tri #triharder #triathlon #triathlete #celiacdiseaseawareness #rheumatoidarthritisawareness
I got this kava extract from my uncle's store! I've tried kava a few different but I hadn't used an extract like this! I think Kava is ok for relaxation/stress relief, but I actually prefer to take it with Kratom at bedtime when I have it, it's a great combination for stress and or sleep😴  That's my most recent kratom purchase in the pic, I really like it❤️it's Super Green Malay from Buy Kratom Bulk!!!! Great pain Management AND Sleep, without any RX's😴 that's a win win win!!!!☺️ * • * • * • * • * • * #autoimmunedisease #rheumatology #rheumatism #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicillnesses #ra #footpain #jointsupport #immunediseases  #rheumatoidarthritisawareness #rheumatologist #orthopedics #arthritisfoundation #arthritisawareness #orthopedicsurgery  #lupus #wheelchairlife #juvenilerheumatoidarthritis #learningtowalk #naturalremedies #naturalcures #muhammadali #painmanagement #naturalremedy #jointpain #painrelief #naturalmedicine #rheumatoidarthritis #curearthritis
