It wasn’t on the plan but I really needed that run! Thank you @tanya_runs_cf14 for always being by my side (or in front if we’re going uphill!). 4 x 1200m intervals after a long day and a school meeting on top, with a beautiful sunset and great company πŸ₯°. . . . #tcsnycmarathon #nycmarathon #thismumruns #thismumrunscardiff #marathontraining #lovetorun #loverunning #nycmarathontraining #runmummyrun #instarunnerswales #2019goals #runninggoals #runningtherapy #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid  #irunthisbody #runhappy  #runningismytherapy #versusarthritis #inspiringwomenrunners #womensrunningcommunity #runningbuddies #runningfriendsarethebest #marathonrunner #running #rhedegcymru #rhedeg

Struggled πŸƒ‍♀️with every mile today...stop/start...had enough...one more try...some food...try again & at mile 12 that was it no more reasoning with myself 😭 was meant to do 15 but it didn’t happen. ‘Katie’ ventured to a no go area & enjoyed her croissant though 🀷‍♀️ . . . . . #runningfrustration  #londonrunners  #runlondon  #runningmotivation  #trainingharder  #endurancetraining  #versusarthritis  #rheumatoidarthritiswarrior  #chronicallybadassclub  #ginger4sport  #pushingthrough  #shiftworksucks
I've got really out of the habit of veggies for breakfast since I started working in an office - I just can't cope with eating properly that early in the morning. Anyone else feel the same?  I try to make the most of my days working from home by soaking up allllll the veg πŸ’š  This is broccoli, kale, chicken and scrambled egg with salt, pepper and turmeric.  Also, I'd love to know what other people with a 9-5 do for brekkie?  #versusarthritis #aip #aipaleo #aiprotocol #autoimmuneprotocol #autoimmunedisease #rheumatoidarthritis #ra #spoonie #inflamatorydisease #inflamatoryarthritis #antiinflamtorydiet #chronicpain #chronicillness #healing #recovery #health #healingdiet #eatclean #nutrition  #dairyfree #glutenfree #grainfree #paleo #keto #primal
No matter how rubbish I am feeling spending time with my Ellie is the best cure πŸ’—. She's been my companion and support for 13 years now. She has been with me through so much but It doesn't matter what's gone on in my day, i get to her stable and all that is left behind. Even through the wet and windy winters πŸ₯Ά and the hard work horses are, she is a huge reason to keep pushing through my treatment so I can ride more, shes a reason to throw on a coat and head out the house, she is my lifeblood 🐴 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - #horse #mypet #mysupport #bestfriend #13yearsstrong #snapshotofmylife #stillswithstories #leg #painrelief #sclerotherapy #chronic #chronicpain #osteoarthritis #arthritis #arthritisuk #osteoarthritis #versusarthritis #congenitalveneousmalformation #vascularmalformation #veins #cvm #disbabeled #beautifulnotbroken #scarrednotscared #thrivenotsurvive #mylife #myjourney #mybody #myrules #spoons #spoonie

At the beginning of Summer, mum got us this weird water bottle that has a small ball in it to regulate the flow of water, we use it to have a quick wet your whistle drink when we're out and about on our walks. It saves mum having to carry ğ a huge bottle of water and a collapsible bowl for us βšͺ Once we figured out that you just had to lick the ball to get the water out it works really great, it's just like one of those water bottles for rabbits πŸ˜‚ So we get to stay nicely hydrated on our walk, then when we get back to our car we don't bolt our water in the bowl all in one go πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ βšͺ #boopmysnoot #boopthesnoot #snootboop #boop #snoot #surreyshooters #igerssurrey #blackcocker  #blackcockerspaniel 🐢 #assistancedog #workingcocker #cockerspaniel #cocker #spaniels #arthritis #invisableillness #versusarthritis #surrey #surreylife #surreyhills #rawfeddogs #cockerdream πŸ•
Tempo run βœ… Beautiful day β˜€οΈ Loved it πŸ’— . . 1.6k WU, 3.2k@5:45-5:52p/km, 1 min rec, 1.6k@5:29-5:35 x 2 w 1 min recovery. 1.6k CD.  This was a tough one but it felt right πŸ’ͺ🏻. I was sweating buckets and breathing hard in the best way.  I struggled to hit my WU pace initially and my heart sank. But once I got to that sweet marathon pace πŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ’¨πŸ˜… . . #tcsnycmarathon #nycmarathon #thismumruns #thismumrunscardiff #marathontraining #lovetorun #loverunning #nycmarathontraining #runmummyrun #instarunnerswales #2019goals #runninggoals #runningtherapy #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid  #irunthisbody #runhappy  #runningismytherapy #versusarthritis #inspiringwomenrunners #womensrunningcommunity #marathonrunner #running #rhedegcymru #rhedeg #cardiff #temporun #brooksbestfest #brooksxgavrunscardiff  @brooksrunninguk

Im officially enrolled in University and start next Wednesday! I’m nervous and excited! This has been a dream of mine since school. To train to become a nurse. But I’ve always had people put me down, if it wasn’t because of my physical health it was because of my dyslexia and “no being smart enough” will this is a big fuck you to all the people who have ever said I will never be able to do what I want. I’m so ready for the new chapter of my life. Thank you to everyone who has supported me in this process and to everyone who has said they will help me through my uni journey ❀️ #unviersity #ucnl #student #studentnurse #healthandsocialcare #fibromyalgia #fibro #rheumatoidarthritis #rheumatoidarthritiswarrior #hipreplacement #hipreplacementrecovery #spoonie #spoonielife #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicallyill #newchapter #newjourney #versusarthritis

Arthritis is a chronic life long condition, with the amount of other long term illnesses (physical and mental) that are highlighted within the media, I feel that the impact of Arthritis, as well as other key auto immune disorders, tend to slip through the net and not much awareness is raised about these conditions that can affect someone you may know and leave them at times temporarily, or at worse, permanently incapacitated.  As with most auto immune diseases, Arthritis is unpredictable, it is not biased to age, sex or race. When active, it can be debilitating to those who have the condition.  In my personal experience, over the last few years, I have been working really hard on improving my overall health and working on myself as a person; Improving on being industrious to maintain being in work, on being a good wife to my husband, working on obtaining a degree, my eating habits and exercising to help keep my mobility and joints supple, not only to improve my overall well-being, but to keep the condition at bay. I had even managed to build up slowly, on my indoor exercise bike, to cycle 15km three times a week, alongside out / indoor swimming once a week and the affects from this were amazing. I had only just started my new job in August, but I felt confident in that nothing could stop me and then... Two weeks ago, I started a new type of treatment switching from oral to self injection Methotrexate, to help improve the side affects of ingesting the medication and hopefully further improve the outcomes of disease progression. However, whilst adjusting to treatment (for which I am so grateful to receive), I have gone into a full Rheumatic flare and Lord knows, it has properly knocked me for six, it’s even affected my eyes.  I very rarely cry, but today upon talking to my GP speaking about the pain - I cried, after informing my manager I had been signed off work - I cried, calling my husband on his way home from work - I cried, upon speaking with The Rhumatology
Books for me. Whatever my mood, whether I want something exciting, demanding, intriguing, fun or relaxing I can always find a book that fits with my mood. Even if I'm having a rough day and can't use my kindle I can relax in bed with an audiobook. #booksbooksbooks #bookreader #mybookishfeatures #booksaremagic #bookstagramfeature #bookstagramuk #keepreading #booknerds #booksarelife #bookstagramfeatures  #ilovebooks #handmadejewellery #ilovereading #instajewellery #fortheloveofbooks #booksaremagic #fortheloveofreading  #bestinstamind #creativetherapy #chronicallyawesome #chroniclife #chronicpain #spooniesisters #spooniewarrior #spooniestrong #versusarthritis

CW: Discussion of mental health. It’s strange, when I first saw this cover up I didn’t really like it on myself. Loved it on others though and it was seeing @allykatswonderland wear it that pushed me to go and actually buy it. My brain plays tricks on me all the time and if it wasn’t for people around me reassuring me that I looked okay it would have stayed in my suitcase. I discovered a lot about myself and my behaviours whilst attending therapy sessions last year. I was diagnosed with BDD. This was alongside the severe depression and anxiety diagnosis I had been given after a referral to a paediatric psychologist when I was twelve. (Being angry about being diagnosed with chronic illnesses warrants that apparently) This is probably a ramble that doesn’t make sense (I apologise. I’m very tired and I’m trying to distract myself from pain) but what I’m trying to say is that I’m glad my negative thoughts didn’t win this day. (Image Description: Oyinda is sat down in a lime green beach cover up maxi dress. Her hair is purple, she is smiling. Her nails are painted orange with one leopard print nail and she is resting on hand on the side of a round table. Her other hand is sat in her lap. She has white slider sandals on.) #thisischronicillness

Mixed feelings about @kimkardashian being diagnosed with #psoriaticarthritis  It’s fantastic that it will hopefully bring more awareness, however, “relieved” and making out that psoriatic arthritis isn’t an autoimmune disease.  I hope she can bring GOOD awareness about this horrible disease.  Thank you to @rebeccalnorth for raising awareness of the hideous comments from journalists and the emails to them!  #psoriaticarthritis #psoriasis #autoimmunedisease #versusarthritis #arthursplace #psa #psaawareness
My quote for the day. β˜€οΈ What plans do you make for your wellbeing post flare πŸŒ‹  #autoimmunedisease #autoimmuneflare #ankylosingspondylitis #axialspondyloarthritis #sjogrenssyndrome #postflareselfcare#arthritisireland #spondilitisamericansociety #versusarthritis #hiddenillness #mentalhealth #rhumatology #selfcare #selfacceptance #disability #disabilityrights
Some tips for when your arthritis is playing up  1) A warm bath can help relieve some of the pain and stiffness  2) Heat/Ice packs. These can be really helpful with pain. Feel your joint and if it is warm to the touch try an ice pack, otherwise use heat 3) Gentle exercise  4) Rest 5) Massage. Sounds pretty horrible to say but having my knees 'squeezed' and rubbed really helps! I use the magnesium body lotion from @betteryou_ltd and in the past have used certain essential oil blends which are supposed to help with inflammation and arthritis

This is what Rheumatoid Arthritis looks like for me now after running out of other treatment options. I might look fine but it doesn’t mean I am. At 31 I feel like I’m trapped in the body of an old woman. Never once did I think I’d ever look forward to having infusions, but after the last 3 weeks it’s never been more needed. I usually just grin and put up with it but the pain, swelling and lack of movement the past few weeks have been absolutely horrific. Fingers crossed this kicks in quickly this time 🀞🏻 @versusarthritis #versusarthritis #rheumatoidarthritis #rawarrior #inflectrainfusion #infusions #infliximab
