Ahem, this medical Monday class is in session! I’m your professor, Dr. Fuzzy Snoofer and today we are going to be talking about mast cell activation syndrome. Mast cells are cells from the immune system that live in everyone’s tissues and bone marrow. They help keep us healthy by helping our body fight infection and being part of the inflammatory process. For my girl, however these cells release inappropriately causing major multiple system involved allergic reactions and even anaphylaxis. My girl has a list of triggers that can cause these reactions, but the truth is that she can react to anything any day! Thankfully for her I use my sniffer to smell these cells releasing and reactions occurring before she knows and then she can take medications to help try to minimize these reactions and hopefully avoid anaphylaxis! Ever since my girl has been back from Arizona she has been wearing this actigraphy band from the Mayo Clinic to track her sleep and I have been licking it like crazy. Licking is my alert for mast cell reactions, but for my alert I am supposed to be licking my girl’s face and was licking her watch. She started having nightly mast cell sweats(one of the only times my girl can sweat), a very hard time sleeping, rashes on her face and in her hair, and some itching. After my girl and trainer studied my behavior and analyzed videos of me and the actigraphy band they concluded that ever since my girl came home, I have been alerting to a reaction from the band. Not only did I tell my girl that she was having a reaction, but I told her what was causing it too! I could do this because her wrist that had the band on it was producing the strongest allergic reaction oder for me to smell. My girl is so proud of me for staying consistent with my alerts over the past couple weeks while she sorted out what I was trying to say and that I went above and beyond to tell her exactly where the problem was coming from! For your homework you can brush up on the canine snoofer system to learn just how powerful a puppers nose is! #servicepuppiper #opietheservicedog #servicedog #servicedogintraining #vizsla #scentdetection #vizslapuppy #wiredhairvizsla #dogsofmichigan

The question I ask myself and everyone else is, “Do you have the discipline to be a free spirit?” to be self-motivate , to stay kind & trustable while you already taste many unfaithfulness , to give happiness while your heart cry , to give a just one more simple smile to the people , to make the world more beautiful place to stay . Dance is the fastest, most direct route to the truth — not some big truth that belongs to everybody, but the get down and personal kind ...

Me at 10pm vs. me right now. One of those horrid nights where my body keeps teasing me with sleep just to jerk awake just as I drift off.....suddenly don’t feel so clever for having pushed myself today 🤦‍♀️ . #insomnia #insomniaproblems #wheresmyinsomniacsat #sotired #soawake #invisibleillness #chronicillness #chronicpain #myeloproliferativeneoplasm #fibromyalgia #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieproblems #spooniesofinstagram

Anyone else? . 😩🙈😂 . . I don’t always find insomnia amusing, but lately I’ve been able to appreciate the humor of it. . . My roommate gets up really early for work- 4:15am if snooze isn’t hit- and most days I’m still awake while she’s out getting ready.😂 . It made me miserable at first- all I could focus on was how little sleep I was getting. The fact that she was eating breakfast before I’d fallen asleep was so depressing. . . It’s absurd. . . But then I started to think about her situation, which is also absurd. Her ideal bedtime is 8:30pm because she has an hour-ish commute and has to be at school at 6:30am. She then gets home around 6:30pm. . . 😲😟💐 . And to make matters worse, her roommate is most awake in the middle of the night and needs next to total silence in the mornings. . . ☹️ . 🤨 . 😅 . 😂 . Now it genuinely makes me chuckle. . Sometimes she comes in and brings me a drink for my meds and I’ll assess her outfit or listen to her talk about her day. . . It’s actually pretty pleasant. . . 🙃 . . Don’t get me wrong- I hate insomnia with every cell in my body- but some days I don’t hate the situation. . . And that helps. . . . Does that make sense? . . . 🕵🏻‍♀️QOTD: How do you cope with insomnia?

All the glitz and glam up in here. Heat is seriously the only thing providing any relief for this headache right now.

Last night I painted over a little ink piece I ended up not liking very much and did a quick pour over it. This was the result. Art makes my soul happy. Received a bunch of canvases in the mail from my dad today and I’m super excited to see what I can do with so many materials. _______________________________________ #art#traumatherapy#cptsd#cptsdrecovery#painting#chronicpain#ednos#gpwarrior#gp#gastroparesis#chronicnausea#edsoldier#anorexia#anorexiarecovery#recovery#anxiety#ptsd#bipolardisorder#bipolartypetwo#bpd#eds#eds3#ehlersdanlos#pots#invisibleillness#chronicillness##selflove#anorexiarecovery#arttherapy#copingskills

Hospital life is a roller coaster..🎢Yesterday the plan was for me to go home today, so they switched my meds over to the oral version instead of IV. Well, almost immediately my stomach got really upset after I ate, so they played around with the dose until this morning. When the pain got really severe again. My doctor came in and said they want to try sending me home with the IV version of this medication because clearly my body isn’t ready to deal with just the oral version. It makes sense because if I have gastroparesis, oral meds won’t work quite as well due to absorption issues. - They also got rid of my IV breakthrough pain medication and the pain has been really hard to manage, so they’re having pain management come by and do a consult. They’ll probably add another IV pain med back temporarily. All that to say, I’m probably going to be here at least another day or two. Can’t wait to go home and be in my own bed. 🛏

Platelet count: 10,000 😕( normal 150,000 to 350,000) No one (my hematologist or nurses)has an explanation for me on why my platelet counts just drop. 💜 help me spread ITP Awareness on September 28th by reposting a purple ribbon (swipe and screenshot it)💜 #itp #itpaware #itpawareness #itpawarenessmonth #invisibleillness #findacure #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunedisorder

Had an amazing day at #mitsuwa during the #hokkaidofestival New friendships. Awesome food. Fun toys. Interesting books. So cool! Can't wait to go back ♥ #japaneseculture If I look like I'm sweating to death in this photo...you're right. My back was not an issue that day (thanks to double #vicodin every 4 hours and an #intermuscular #toradolshot in the ass). Yep, lots of us with #chronicpain know all about putting up a face on what we know is going to be a #highpain day (lots of walking/lots of travel). We don't want to ruin the day for everyone else by having to pace ourselves, take it slow, sit down every few minutes, walk with our canes and our walkers and be generally annoying. Yes, we know that you are friends and family you would be patient with us but we don't want to be seen as a hindrance. #lifefrominsidethecage . . . . . #invisibleillness #chronicmigraineawareness #fibrofighters #ibsistheshit #birthtrauma #soulcysters #ehlersdanlosgrrls #bipolarbear #reactivehypoglycemiaissweetrevenge #medicalmarijuanapatient #sandclound #yetanotherselfie

Why are people with Multiple Sclerosis So Strong? Because they have to hold everything together ( Their Body, Emotions, Confidence, Passions, Talents) Just to get through their day...

Did you know Rocks with Sass all started during a Crohn’s Disease flare? And that without that pain and suffering I am certain I would not be who I am and where I am today✨ I remember my last relapse I explained to a friend that I knew (for a fact) that I was strong enough to get through this. That wasn't where my tears were coming from. I just didn't understand why me? I now know. Each and every one of us has a battle to fight. Each relapse, shot, hospital stay is part of my story. I'm now proud of my scars 💪🏼 So now that I have some part time help with RWS (shout out to @hunterlindsay5)💓 I can get back to doing the projects I’m passionate about including the featured fighter blog series, which shares my followers IBD stories. Sharing mine has been a therapeutic process. Stand with me and shed your fears and embarrassment, you are a fighter. Give some encouragement to the newly diagnosed or the ones who are currently in a flare up. Show family members a glimpse into the life of IBD that maybe their loved one hasn't quite been able to explain and remind yourself that you are one bad ass babe! Who is willing to share their story with me??💓💓💓

Not a great #mentalhealth day. Having lots of intrusive thoughts, trying to remind myself that nothing is ACTUALLY happening, but that my mind is just playing with me. But here’s a tip I’m trying because of my therapist: instead of trying to dam up all of those bad thoughts, just acknowledge them, like they’re passing by. Think of them as clouds passing by or leaves drifting down a stream. They’re THERE, but that’s all. View them as something outside of yourself. Let me know if this helps, my loves . . . #anxiety #anxietyrelief #copingmechanism #copingstrategies #invisibleillness #copingskills #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness
