♥ My EDS/Chronic Illness Summer Essentials ♥

Hello everyone! I apologize for it being a little while since I last posted! I finally graduated so i can spend more time blogging/vlogging! Here are some of my EDS/Chronic illness summer essentials!

 

Sunglasses!

Sunglasses are a must for everyone! My eyes are super sensitive to light because of my keratoconus, but it’s also important to protect your eyes from the sun!

Sunscreen

Even if the sun isn’t out and shining bright, the UV rays can harm your skin more if left unprotected.

Aloe Vera

Even if i don’t get sun burn i apply this, because my skin gets really sensitive during the winter months and it helps the pain from the sensitivity.

Small Hand Held Misting Fan

A lot of times I get heat flashes and it makes me feel sick and dizzy so it’s always nice to have this handy for  nice quick cool down!

♥ Water Bottle and Pill Case

It’s always important to stay hydrated and keep up with your medications, but sometimes it can be hard to remember to take your pills throughout the day! This makes things easier to do both – stay hydrated and on schedule with your medications.

 

I hope these can help give some ideas on what may help you! Thank you all for the support and visiting my blog! Feel free to contact me and talk! I love you all so much!

 

Stay Beautiful

♥ How I knew Something Was Wrong – EDS Diagnosis – Chronic Pain ♥

I was young…running and playing with my friends at school and having a good time like kids should but, towards the end of the school year I was having some knee pain.. Didn’t faze me too much since I figured it was from playing.

I loved to Dance! I took Jazz and Tap lessons every week for a year! As I continued Jazz my knees got worse, I didn’t think anything of  it thinking it was from working so hard, so i just wore a knee brace. As the classes went on it only got worse, so i made the decision to stop Jazz cause it hurt so much. I continued Tap still in a little pain but I continued on and had a dance recital! It as so much fun I was thinking of doing it again the following year… Little did I know what was happening until a couple of months later I started to go down hill and we didn’t know why..

Why was I in so much pain?

The pain and soreness moved around effecting my shoulders, hips, ankles, back etc. My stomach started hurting more than ever constantly having sharp pains.

I was at school the one day, and I had a bad episode of pains so I went to walk a bit in the hallway…. I started feeling weak and I couldn’t control anything, so I passed out going into the lockers leaving more pain and bruising. I remember snapping out of it and the teacher was carrying me to the nurses office, I had trouble speaking and comprehending what was happening. My Mom picked me up and took me straight to the doctors where they thought maybe I was just dehydrated.

The following days continued with me being light-headed and dizzy.

I went back to the doctors and that’s when it all became doctor after doctor after doctor. Being tired and confused I went to all the doctors who mostly told me they believed it and that it was all in my head and telling me I was faking it all. As years went on the symptoms got worse and so did most of the doctors. Finally I met two doctors who were starting to put pieces together and believed how i felt. Finally after 7 years of unknown pain I was diagnosed on October 30th 2016 with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (Hypermobile). I remember with a big smile I looked at my mom who also had the biggest smile, we couldn’t help the tears that came with it… tears of relief, finally having an answer.

Now living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome It took a lot away from me but, it didn’t take away me wanting to help others. I hope by me posting on here it can make someone else feel less alone, understand EDS more, meet others and share their stories. You are all very special no matter what! Never give up … Stay Strong! You got this!

 

Stay Beautiful! ♥

Many more to come!

♥ Those Who Just Don’t Understand (Chronic Illness) ♥

Everyday we all go through this constant pain that keeps us limited and unable to a lot of things like those who don’t share our struggle. A lot of people say the physical pain can’t be too bad, but they cant see the excruciating pain that goes not only through our bodies, but heart and soul.

Every Single Day…

What are you doing after school?

Are you going to college?

Whats you dream job?

What does your future look like?

Those questions eat at me more than the physical pain.. All my dreams since is was a young child are gone.. Dance, College, work, family, etc… Taken away right in front of my eyes from an illness that left me sick throughout my teen years. No answers to what it was or why i was feeling this way, but it didn’t stop there.

After 7 years I was finally diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. The questions kept coming..

You know you can’t manage that, right?

You will never accomplish that, why even try?

Why don’t you just give up?

Those are questions people ask that makes me want to break down and cry.

It pains me knowing I won’t ever be the same person living the dreams i planned on for so long.

But I won’t give up…I can’t give up.

The love and support from my family and friends keep me going! Wanting to make a difference  keeps me going. Together we can do this..

Thank you for visiting my blog!

Stay Beautiful
