Can anyone translate medical speak??? I'm having difficulty getting my bone scan results. Apparently they wrote up my right leg instead of my left. Personally, I'm thinking whoever transcribed just wrote "right" instead of "left" but either way I don't understand this and the Dr is trying to get info on my left leg/foot before explaining to me. However, I have it on my patient portal. I can send a better image if someone would like to translate, please DM me your email and I'll send it. Thank you in advance!!!! #spoonie #RSD #CRPS #needhelp

In following @keepshiningkeepsmiling 's footsteps, I'd like to give a shoutout to @dinkyspoon85 She's an amazingly strong #spooniesister who has survived through more than anyone her age should have to. She has her own YouTube channel and talks about everything from chronic diseases to makeup!! She's sweet and kind and deserves a follow!! #SpreadSomeSunshine #spoonie #spooniesister #spooniestrong #spooniecommunity

Stuck in traffic going home from Jefferson Hospital. Neurologist did EMG and it came out normal. The only other thing she could think of is that I have #RSD I'm going for a bone scan and then to a different teaching hospital to see an RSD specialist and see what they think. Any #RSD #spoonie out there have advice for me? #pots #fibromyalgia #whatswrongwithmyleg

Was tagged by @keepshiningkeepsmiling to do #sds (which I need to point out, Iz, that's mean to do to a spoonie who is regular person sick!!! Jk, I still love ya'). So, no one wants to see my red drippy nose and swollen eyes- so here's a pic of the mighty box of tissues that are my new best friend and the thermometer. Now, back to bed. Oh- whoever wants to can join in. I have no more spoons left.

Saw the #pots cardiologist today. He's taking me off the steroid- yay!!! But, he wants me to add more dietary salt. He said to eat pickles and lox-yum!!!!!!! He wants me to increase my fluids too. He also agreed with the PT that I could have #RSD . I have to ask the neurologist on the 16th. He gave me the name of a different rheumatologist who is hopefully more familiar with #fibromyalgia All in all a good visit, I think. Now, to rest and #crossstitch !! #spoonie #crafts

#SickGirlStigma needs to end. Christina Tournant, a 17 year old girl, valedictorian of her high school and a freshman at MIT killed herself this past weekend because she was suffering from a debilitating chronic illness and felt she couldn't "keep fighting." Reading the news articles about her story honestly breaks my heart. Personally, I suffer from multiple chronic illnesses and know firsthand how they can completely change your life. Chronic illnesses can be so difficult to understand if you don't suffer from one yourself, especially as most conditions are seemingly invisible. You deal with friends, family and doctors alike questioning your sanity at times and can be made to feel like your illness isn't legitimate. Fellow chronic illness suffers hear the phrases "It's all in your head" and "But you don't look sick" all too often. Just because we don't LOOK sick, it doesn't mean we're NOT sick. Invisible illnesses are very real and can be incredibly debilitating. They can be difficult to deal with mentally as well, especially when people constantly brush you off and act as if what you're going through isn't real. Being ill can really take a toll on you. This wonderful girl deserved to get the medical attention she needed. She deserved to be listened to. We all deserve that. As terrible as it sounds, the truth is that compassion in the medical field can be hard to come by. But no one should EVER be made to feel like their illness isn't valid. Thank you to @babygottsandpots for starting this incredible campaign! If you have five minutes to spare, take that time to participate in this campaign and help raise awareness by using the hashtag. Awareness is really key πŸ’œ
