Being disabled does not mean you have to give up everything you love, but you do have to make adjustments. Here I am with my mobility aid scooter in Disneyland. What adjustments have you made to make your passions possible with you new abilities? . #chronicpainwarrior #chronicfatigue #chronicillness #chronicbadass #chronicpainlady #depression #anxiety #ptsd #crohnsdisease #baglife #inducedcoma #lupus #arthritis #multiplesclerosis #ms #dysautonomia #pots #initialorthostatichypotension #spoonie #blooddisorder #mrsa #cdiff #compromisedimmunesystem #lonely #sleeplessnights #spoonieproblems #spoonielife #brainfog

I can’t believe this was me a little over just 3 months ago in an #inducedcoma ! I was cut open and had my abdomen split in half so they could clean my insides and make sure my organs weren’t going to fail , my parents were even about to start planning my funeral! The nightmares I had while in my coma were so realistic and scary , I will never be able to forget them. I still don’t know if the things I saw or heard in ICU were real or not ! I even pulled out my own breathing tube and they were scared if I did any damage to my throat and after that I was restrained to my bed and my nurses were not happy with me ! But waking up with a tube down your throat and not knowing where you are and feeling like you are choking is a scary feeling and I went into full on panic mode! I still can’t believe everything that has happened and how far I have come since then even though to me it feels like It’s been forever. I still have a long way to go but I hope I will never be where I was ever again! #survivingsepsis #hospitalized #healingprocess #septicshock #icu One more surgery to go and I am nervous as hell ! #mystoryofsepsis #sepsissurvivor #sepsisawareness

🏥🚁 TRAUMATIC TUESDAYS 🚑🤕 ————————————————————— Faark. It hits home real hard seeing this and to find out you were trapped inside a rolled truck for 2 hours before being released, to then be worked on on-site for another hour after that laying next to it where you had to be placed into an induced coma because my airways were blocked. To then find out i was then airlifted from site to John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle and spent 4 days in a coma in the Intensive Care Unit 😢 ——————————————————————————— #hitshome #trauma #horrific #seriousaccident #truckaccident #ICU #intensivecareunit #4days #inducedcoma #JohnHunterHospital #Newcastle #blockedairways #brokenarm #headinjury #braindamage #rippedear #neckbrace #spinalbrace #airlifted #trapped #truckdriver #kw #kenworth #bdouble #luckytobealive #guardianangels #watchingoverme #cantrememberanything #imsorry #jd__93photography

#EPILEPSYLIVESMATTER💜 • My dear friends at @angels_of_epilepsy are having a campaign to set the focus on epilepsy and our stories! And I promised I would share some of my story. This picture show you how serious it can get. It’s life or death. I had my first tonic-clonic seizure at age 21. I was put on a ventilator for a few hours. From there on this disease would become hell. December 2013 and all the beginning of 2014 was filled with seizures and hospital stays. It was a never ending story. We upped my dosage of the meds again and again, and I became seizure free for a few months. Then it got more serious. Status epilepticus. A life threatening condition in epilepsy were a seizure doesn’t stop or it stops, begins, stops, begins again and again without ending. You need immediate medical attention. I’ve been in status more times than I can count now. Been in it three times since June; every time on a ventilator and in a medical induced coma to let the brain rest. This photo is from this August. I laid like this for three days. Woke up, had new seizures when they were to move me from the ICU to the neuro ward, but they managed to stop them. This is from Denmark. I was on holiday and had the time of my life as you’ve seen; but on the way home I started seizing. And then I woke up three days later all alone, in pain and scared. It’s hell. I can’t put into words how horrible it is and how painful it is. I’m scared. Because this keeps happening. “Life threatening epilepsy”. You don’t want those words hanging over you. But I do. And I fight for my life every single day! I try to live despite it all, and keep on waking up in different hospitals. My brain and body survive every time. Only my memory, vision and speech gets affected now. It’s heartbreaking. Because I don’t want to live like this. But this is the face of someone with a severe case of epilepsy. This is the face of a fighter, a survivor. This is why we need a cure! I’m amazed by how much my body can handle. But I’m still here, still smiling. Through all of this. This is my reality. This is life with epilepsy. #fuckepilepsy #ICU #fighter #anitasfight #anitaelisabethsfight #epilepsywarrior #warrior

Today is the 1 year anniversary since I got discharged from the hospital, i remember it like it was yesterday... I was so over the moon to be going home but at the same time I was so petrified I would end back up in there! I still felt so poorly, but I needed to be home with my family, the walk out was the hardest and felt like the longest walk I’ve ever done, I cried in the car when we started driving... I felt free, Free of the horrific nightmare I had gone through and just to smell the fresh air, look at the beautiful autumn trees..🍁 it was so beautiful... when I Arrived home I went to go up the stairs and couldn’t even walk up one step... I knew I had a battle still on my hands, but my fight for life and to survive was so strong, I feel so lucky and blessed to be able to watch my babies grow and enjoy everyday with the people I love so much, cherish your loved ones and be thankful for good health you really never know what is around the corner #recovery #csectionrecovery #icu #intensivecare #inducedcoma #stoma #iliostomy #ptsdawareness #ptsd #postbirth #emergencycsection #premmie #32weeker #fighter #bethankful #humble #thankfulforlife #health

🤯🧠 THUMPED HEAD THURSDAY 🤷🏼‍♂️🤕 ——————————————————————— I was going to post this up but then didn’t want to because I didn’t know what to say. Then I thought of something to write but told myself, “people don’t need to see or hear it.” So I closed it, just to re-open it again but in those couple of seconds, I completely forget what I was going to say, so now I’ll try all over again....😓 With the thump my head took in the accident, I don’t find it easy to reach out, reply to texts or messages online, answer or make phone calls or even return them when missed. A lot of the time like at the start of this post, I simply forget to but this memory loss mixed with a newly found severe case of anxiety kicks my arse every single day! 😪 Some days are okay, some days I don’t even touch my phone and other days, I can’t even leave the house! What’s made things worse, right at the beginning I was booked out with every appointment known to man to get me better, but then the whole lot got shut down nearly 4 weeks in. 😓 All because of an 11 digit number that no-one had which was out of our control. Every day with this self destructing combo has been the scariest I’ve had to face yet and only now after 4 months, with the continued help, support, love and backing from Char and a few others, a new schedule of appointments is getting set up with a crew of experts that are behind me and doing everything they can to help me make a comeback🤞🏽 ——————————————————————————— @char.925 #EastForPM #Becisalegend #anxiety #depression #brain #braininjury #memoryloss #shatteredwrist #trauma #headtrauma #inducedcoma #truckaccident #lifesupport #airwayobstruction #longroadtorecovery #slowjourney #surgery #psychology #chiropractic #painmanagement #paintherapy #handtherapy #pleasebepatient #imtryingmybest #comeback #gottogetitout

🎗 Difference between brain dead and coma: ▫️Brain death: These patients are no longer alive. There has been an irreversible cessation of all activity in both the brain and the brain stem. Reflexes that go through the spinal cord may persist even in a brain-dead state. ▫️Coma: These patients are alive, but in a state of eyes-closed, depressed consciousness from which they cannot be aroused. Coma is distinguished from brain death by the presence of brain stem responses, spontaneous breathing or non-purposeful motor responses. Coma has three possible outcomes: progression to brain death, recovery of consciousness, or evolution to a state of chronically depressed consciousness, such as a vegetative state or minimally conscious state.

🎗 What is a Coma? A coma is a prolonged state of unconsciousness. During a coma, a person is unresponsive to his or her environment. The person is alive and looks like he or she is sleeping. However, unlike in a deep sleep, the person cannot be awakened by any stimulation, including pain.

Somedays it feels like all I can think about is the pain. Meditation helps me reconnect with my "why." It's okay to acknowledge the storm and it's okay if that's all you can do some days.

One year ago today, this angel was in an induced coma fighting for her life. We didn’t get to talk to her for three weeks. As it took this long for her to be stable enough to be woken up. She spend three days with her insides hanging out, as she was to fragile to be stitched back up. She then underwent eight seperate operations, in a six month period! We lived at the women’s and children’s hospital for this heart renching time. We nearly lost this beautiful girl so many times, but she kept fighting to stay with us. Our life has changed in so many ways since that day. Some good, some bad but all different and all hard. Words can’t begin to express how proud I am to be your mummy and how proud I am to be standing beside you on this journey of your life. Everyday is difficult, everyday you experience pain. If I could take it all away for you, I would, but I can’t. Life is hard but totally worth it. i love you my darling 💜🌻🙏 #reflection #hardyear #hardyearsahead ichooselove #strongestgirliknow #shortgut #gastroschisiswarrior #gastroschisis #gastroschisissurvivor #gastroschisisawarenessday #intestinalfailure #icu #inducedcoma

It is easy to feel that with each passing day and each struggle/symptom of chronic illness you are losing more and more of you. . It's necessary to mourn who you were, but my wish for you in 2019 is that you learn to love the new you. The longer you hang on to what was, the more you miss what is.

The things that are great in small doses are actually excruciating when forced on you. . I used to be a badass Director. I employed 500 people and served more than 2 million meals a year. Now I sit,mostly chair bound, permanently disabled at 30. Where i once loved the moments of rest and relaxation, now that they're my main focus it feels like a never ending, futile pursuit. I could sleep 100 hours and my body is still tired. . So it always hurts just a little more when people say, "Wish I could relax and smoke pot all day." No, you don't. You cannot even imagine the endless futility. . #chronicpainwarrior #chronicfatigue #chronicillness #chronicbadass #chronicpainlady #depression #anxiety #ptsd #crohnsdisease #baglife #inducedcoma #lupus #arthritis #multiplesclerosis #ms #dysautonomia #pots #initialorthostatichypotension #spoonie #blooddisorder #mrsa #cdiff #compromisedimmunesystem #lonely #sleeplessnights #spoonieproblems #spoonielife #brainfog

I often find myself apologizing to doctors. "I'm sorry for being the difficult patient." "Im sorry I'm always sick." "Im sorry this pain treatment didnt work." . Recently one of my doctors grabbed my hand, held it and said, "Please, no more apologizing. This is happening to you, not because of you. This is not your fault." .

therightstrong. Here I was before my scheduled surgery on Sunday morning, sitting outs

Here I was before my scheduled surgery on Sunday morning, sitting outside the hospital and enjoying a joint, trying to relax. Everything was going as planned, but I had a bad feeling in my gut. Something just didn't feel right and I told whoever was with me. They reassured me. Everything was going to be okay. But of course it wasn't, because I'm the 3rd person in the hospital and the first that my surgeon has operated on (since they started using the dye in 1998) who got a terrible allergic reaction to the dye that they injected in me to be able to see the lymph nodes clearly. Anaphylactic shock. My blood pressure dropped to my boots. My whole body started swelling and my organs started shutting down. If I hadn't already had a ventilator in my throat, I would have died. I woke up on Monday night in ICU out of an induced coma, choking on the pipe down my throat that was breathing for me. Drips everywhere, pipes everywhere, my throat and chest burning, my boob bright blue and my body completely swollen. I had no idea where I was or what had happened. I am out of the hospital, but I am still so fragile. I feel like a piece of myself. I have been struggling emotionally since I woke up and trying to accept that surgery is scheduled for Sunday again, this time without the dye. Thank you to every single person who prayed for me. I really believe that I'm here because of all of you. And for all the messages of love, support and kindness. I am so lucky. I don't even know how to possibly thank you all.
