Right: Also pain, fever and fatigue.
Same day Left : Pain, fever and fatigue Right: Also pain, fever and fatigue. Pics are only 20 min apart. The smily one was the first and then I didn't have energy left for the day. A couple days ago on the street I met a woman I just happen to know by sight ( a nurse who did my blood samples). I was wearing makeup , cool outfit and sunglasses. I was dying of pain on the inside and dizzy with fever but I needed to go buy some vegetables to eat so I was on my way despite everything. She told me: "You look radiant , you're definitely going better " and left. I cried . This is my truth. A chronic illness truth. Suffering doesn't always show. Suffering is not necessarily a wheelchair, a cane or a decaying face. Suffering is ugly but not obligatory on the outside .But on the inside it is, for sure. And it is tricky as hell. #chronicillness#chronicillnesstalk#spoonielife#spoonie#lymewarrior#lymedisease#CFS/ME#fibromyalgia#chronicpain#invisibledisabilities

What do you during your lunch break???🤷‍♀️⠀ ⠀ Have you ever considered doing an Ion Foot Bath? 💡 The bottom of the feet have some of the largest pores in the body.....⠀ ⠀ As you detox, the water will turn different colors and textures based on what toxins are being pulled out of your body. The orange/brown of my after photo shows that I’m detoxing from my joints, liver and cellular debris....go figure....that’s EXACTLY where my spirochetes (#lymedisease) are hanging out 🚫.⠀ ⠀ #longevityhealthcenter#wellness#detox#ionicfootbath#lookslikeascienceproject#killallthespirochetes#autoimmune#healthispriceless#environmentaltoxins#strengthenimmunesystem

Some days are harder than others. I woke up this morning extremely emotional. I am tired of going to sleep at night in pain, only to wake up in the morning to pain. Day in and day out. It’s a vicious cycle that torments you and you only want to get off the merry-go-round. It’s one of those days where I have to allow myself to feel this way, to surrender to the sadness, and acknowledge it’s okay to not always be strong with a smile on my face. The last several weeks have been hard with new symptoms pulsating while old symptoms linger. I can’t feel my right hand as I type this because of the numbness and swelling that comes and goes. Muscle spasms in my neck and back are finally calming down after weeks of misery. Headaches and head pressure are starting back up and my vision is blurry yet again which means I need stronger prism glasses to continue fixing the disconnect between my eyes and brain. Ears are ringing so loudly it’s hard to concentrate on anything let alone attempt to sleep. It’s a lot to take in and manage to keep it all together when there’s a 100 balls in the air to juggle. A balancing act. Today’s a hard day. Tomorrow is a new day to start over and I’m confident I’ll wake up not as sad. Much love to all of you Lyme Warriors! TREAT. HOPE. PRAY. WAIT. 💚 #missiontoremission#lymedisease#whenwillitend#weneedchange#justiceforlymepatients

yesterday was brutal. on top of being chronically ill, catching the littlest cold causes me to shut down not only physically, but emotionally as well. . being in a sad and vulnerable state of mind and having to go to my monthly LLMD appointment wouldn’t ordinarily be a good mix for me. I usually feel like I need to keep my composure and be positive. . but after 3 attempts to get an IV started, I broke down, and I cried hard. Hard enough that I couldn’t breathe, as I kept shaking my head ‘no’, that I can’t continue on - I can’t manage my supplements, my time, my work, my house and responsibilities. . my NP looked at me and asked, “can I give you a hug?” . y’all, that hug turned my day around. While I have never questioned my caretakers/clinicians ability to care for me - that little question [and action] did wonders for me. . when you’re failing to keep your head above water, keep in mind the little things - not only for yourself, but what you may be able to offer others, even in your own times of struggle. I’ll bet that they’ll have the ability to change someone’s day. . and, if it wasn’t for my LLMD and cardiologist appointment - I never would’ve captured this beauty at a home & garden center in Lancaster. . again - it’s the little things, y’all. . 🦋 . #MindOverLyme#lymedisease#tickedoff

It’s been a long time since I was able to hike as I did today, to really push myself, to sweat and loose my breath. I gave up hiking, as I was always in too much pain or would go through bouts of extreme vertigo, confusion, and anger. I would go home from hikes with invisible knives in my joints, enduring bouts of seizures, mental fog, and exhaustion. This illness took away a lot of things I love in life, but I’ve been fighting to get them back. I feel elated that I’m starting to glue my life together again, piece by piece. Each day is still a challenge, but I refuse to be a victim. I refuse to give up or give in to defeatism, to neglect my self care, or to be the best version of myself. Today was a good day. #lymedisease#bartonella#babesia#chronicillnessawareness#optoutside#hiking#828isgreat#blueridgeoutdoors#pisgahnationalforest

Hey everybody, I know it’s been long since I’ve posted, just wanted to say hi and thank everyone who reached out to give me love and encouragement. I’m sorry I’ve been MIA, these last couple of months have been pretty rough to say the least. I’ve endured so much pain, more pain I’ve thought was possible. I’m still battling Lyme disease and while this journey isn’t over I wanted you all to know you’re in my thoughts & you’re still my passion Xoxo #lymedisease#lymediseaseawareness#lymewarrior#nevergiveup#thankyouhashem#hairstylist#makeupartist#beachywaves#colorist#fashion#wig#customwigs#wigswag#businesswoman#healthisbeauty#wigsforcancer#wigsforalopecia@danielmasonjones@yolanda.hadid@avrillavigne@allyhilfiger

I felt encouraged to share this. Makes me feel weird and anxious. I see non-stop pictures of peoples gym progress and tiny bikini POV beach blanket shots, but always feel insecure about posting something like that being that I lose weight a lot. Generally don’t feel the hottest about myself with chronic illnesses and wish I could hike, kayak and be as active as I used to, but I’m happy to just have a decent, functional day with less flares, pain, fatigue and food and environmental reactions. A day I feel I can breathe easier, think clearer, be creative and get some stuff accomplished. But skinny people deserve to have a moment where they appreciate themselves, just the same as plus size people, because it’s not always a choice. This is me, trying to be positive. Trying to appreciate myself for a second (a side shot would ruin the illusion 😂). I guess no one is judging but myself and the ones that are can fuck off :). Be easier on yourself, because the world is deadly serious and you have enough to deal with minute by minute. This is for all the #Spoonies and warriors out there. 🌟🖤. #LettingGo#ChronicIllness#mecfs#Cirs#Lupus#Mctd#lymedisease#MCAS#MCAD#MTHFR#Flareup#fibromyalgia#PainWarrior#PainCoward#Skinny#Deathly#BeBrave#Tattoo#Beard#NewYork#Insecurity#Confidence#Anxiety#Brainfog#SelfLove#SelfHate#fitness#Summer#instagood

My illness has been getting the best of me these days. My pills are harder to swallow and foods I once loved don’t have the same appeal anymore.

If you saw my stories today, I revealed that I just got diagnosed with advanced late stage lyme disease along with my daughter after years of symptoms with unknown causes. Its a relief because now we finally have a cause for all the symptoms and we can work on trying to boost the immune system and feel better. The hard thing about Lyme is it can mimic other illnesses but with the right doctor and the right tests, the diagnosis can become clear. This wont define us and we are not going to own it. Its just something we have to live and deal with and turn into a positive. Im so grateful for the family and friends who have stuck with us showing their support and unconditional love over the years as we have been searching for answers. Time to be proactive and keep moving ahead. 💚 #utah#hikinggirls#ut#trees#atv#atvriding#forest#instagram#instagood#uspixels#xputah#werutah#utahoutdoors#hikeut#danielsummit#uintas#uintamountains#hike#hikeutah#peace#lyme#lymedisease#lymeawareness#thursdaythoughts#positive

I don’t mean to brag, but I live with a song-writing genius whose falsetto is, to put it mildly, MEMORABLE. Last week the crown of his creative genius was a song about chocolatey mousse (“it will make you silly as a goose!”🎶) to the tune of the Winnie the Pooh theme song, and this week, for my birthday, it was an original ditty about the exact time I was born: . “7:13 the birth of my dream She’s so great she should have her own meme!" . Listen, single ladies: if you find someone who writes songs and has a fervent falsetto, MARRY THE HECK OUT OF HIM. He will add many happiness units to your life.

I found out yesterday that my surgery has been cancelled. My couple of my doctors talked and agreed my health is too unstable right now to proceed with the surgery. I have pneumonia again (even on IV antibiotics - although my pneumonia could be virally transmitted, they don’t know). • The crazy bruises on my arm are from my blood draws. They poke me in the forearm bc my veins are larger there and they only have to try once or twice for a vein vs. three or four times in the elbow. • And my tiny Starbucks drink my friend/coworker made for me!

Every fall I head out on a bike tour - several shows and several hundred miles with songwriter @petermulvey43 drummer @nathankilen and my partner @starkravenmpls Bike Tour 2018 starts next Wednesday and I’m gettin a little assistance this year. @civiacycles Electric-Assist Bike will help me to not kill my ailing body. That big black thing is a battery that will give me some extra power when pedaling. Genius! . . Treatment for any disease can be exhausting. Since starting Lyme treatment months ago I’ve been achy and tired and reminded that it often gets worse before it gets better. Folks with Lyme often experience “payback” when they exercise - whole body aches, like the flu, for days after a simple work out. . . My specialist is worried about me exerting myself and destabilizing on this tour, so along with the e-bike I’ve also decided to ride less miles than my counter parts. The challenge for me will be to stop feeling sorry for myself when I’m off the bike and enjoy the whole tour! . .

My Lupus warriors know how unpredictable this disease can be. Sometimes we are rendered powerless until the doctors treat our current symptoms. The one thing I can control is my attitude about living with chronic illness. I CHOOSE to be HAPPY! You can take control by doing some of the following things: 1. Imagine how healthy would like to be and implement one change to help you reach that goal TODAY! It can be something as simple as drinking more water. 2. DO NOT INTERNALIZE! Talk to someone about how you are feeling or communicate non-verbally with a hug. 3. Do not 'wait and see'. Be proactive about communicating symptoms and changes with your doctors. It is helpful to keep a journal with dates that details what you are experiencing between appointments. #remember that you are your best #advocate Help others to help you! Do not give up on YOU! #crushingchronicillness#diseasedoesnotdiscriminate#chronicillness#disease#autoimmunedisease#warrior#fighter#living#alive#livingagenda#lifecampaign#lupus#lupusawareness#diabetesawareness#chrons#cancer#mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness#mentalillness#multiplesclerosis#lymedisease#depression#healthiswealth#epilepsyawareness#epilepsy

HOW TO MAKE LIFE NOT SUCK WHILE LIVING HEALTHY TIP #5:

HOW TO MAKE LIFE NOT SUCK WHILE LIVING HEALTHY TIP #5: _____________________ okay guys, I’ve gotten a lot of flack for this one, but i stand by it — do not do a one size fits all diet! _____________________ obviously, being healthy is good, but sometimes we can get too strict and deprive our bodies of important nutrients. _____________________ when i went vegan for a couple weeks, my body dipped into dangerously low iron and RBC counts even though I was eating lots of iron-rich foods. When I then went AIP/paleo, my body was sluggish for several weeks. When I added rice back into my diet, it was like I came back to life. _____________________ That being said: if you can, check your bloodwork before you go into a diet (or even whole 30!) and see what you need, and change.as.needed! I am basically paleo with some grains, and that’s what works for me. But it’s not what will work for everyone! So keep that in mind if you’re considering a diet change my loves! 😘

2 days ago, I woke up and couldn't walk. Yesterday was a little bit better. Each days, after some rest, I was able to stand and walk again. I'm off balance, spend most of my time in bed. My vision is also still deteriorating, along with coordination and use with my hands. My singing voice is battered, and I can't eat much without getting sick. Had to go get meds today. And my HR is dropping into the 40's while sleeping. I may not wake up. My kitty woke me up this morning as my heart dropped to 46bpm? I have sores on my head and everywhere else, brain fog and pain. Hyper insomnia is awesome. Spread the word on Lyme disease and it's lovely co-infections. Oh yeah, my right big toe and bone feels like it's breaking. We can't forget about air hunger/chest/breathing pains. Follow me on my journey to see where I end up. Maybe I'll survive. #unacknowledgeddiseasesbydoctors#disabledandunacknowledged#lymeandcoinfectionsarebullies#lymediseaseawareness#lyme#lymedontkillmyvibe#lymedisease#lymeawareness#lymediseasesucks#lymefighter#lymewarrior#lymedestroyslives#awareness#lymehelp#fightfortreatmentcentersforlymepatients#lymesupport#lymesupportforfamilies#lymesupportforpatients#compassionatedoctorsforlyme#lymediseaseisreal#itsnotinmyhead#HGA#BDuncani#mycoplasmapneumonia#chlamydiapneumoniae#HHV6#gottapaybills

*HOW I STARTED HEALING*
Part 1/3
• Curious about HOW to get started in healing?
*HOW I STARTED HEALING* Part 1/3 • Curious about HOW to get started in healing? I’m sharing the basics that helped me start to reclaim my health. Part 1 is knowing what is behind your illness. • I understand how hard & frustrating it is when you don’t have answers to heal, or are still struggling after multiple doctors & treatments. I was so lost & heartbroken for many years while I witnessed my health deteriorate & my body waste away. But I finally found another way... to healing & freedom: • STEP 1: Read book 1: “Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic & Mystery Illness & How to Finally Heal.” This book is a road map to understanding what’s going on in your body & how to move forward. It’s well-known that medical treatments are typically 25 years BEHIND medical research. Plus medical research & science is only beginning to tap into a few of the many truths in this book. Do you have 25 more years to wait around for answers to your current suffering? • STEP 2: You are not to blame. It can be very easy to believe that “your body is attacking itself,” “you attracted/manifested your disease,” “you have bad genes,” or any number of other outlandish theories & beliefs that when repeated enough, we internalize. It’s all FALSE! Your body loves you unconditionally & is always working for you, day & night, nonstop. Your body NEVER attacks itself! Your genes aren’t to blame, & it’s not “all in your head.” There is ALWAYS an underlying pathogen and/or toxin that creates havoc & inflammation that the body is fighting to eliminate. • STEP 3: A label, i.e. fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression, Lyme disease, diabetes, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, etc, is not a cause or a cure, just a description of symptoms. Currently, there’s little understanding about what actually causes chronic illness! Medical Medium details the REAL reason behind the label. • Knowing the true cause behind my chronic illness & getting past the labels & junk-science theories was so empowering to begin moving in the right direction on my healing journey. Next in Part 2 I’ll discuss what foods help or hurt the healing process. 🙌🌟💪🙏 Info: @medicalmedium#healing#chronicillness#lymedisease#truth#medicalmedium

FIG NEWTON BARS 🍇 (let’s all just pretend that’s a fig emoji). What’s one of your favorite snacks from childhood you wish you could find an allergy friendly recipe for? . You all should know by now that I’ve ever followed a recipe in my life. I always tweak something to put my own flare on it or combine various recipes to make it exactly how I want . Welp, I did it again! I combined several recipes to make these AIP Fig Newton Bars. Pretty darn delicious, but I need to work on the dough. Figs are probably one of my favorite fruits even though I’m apparently not their favorite human 💁‍♀️🙄 (cue major eye roll and not caring if they hurt my stomach because #DELICIOUS) . . . . . #foodismedicine#grainfree#healingdiet#guthealth#autoimmunepaleo#aip#antiinflammatorydiet#holistichealing#buzzfeedhealth#lowfodmap#wholefoodie#sibo#hashimotos#autoimmunedisease#buzzfood#chronicfatigue#holisticnutrition#lymedisease#spoonie#eatgoodfeelgood#fignewtons#aiplifestyle#fig#glutenfreelife#GFDF#Celiac#paleodessert

The lyrics are very inspiring to everyone, deserves to be in the #BattleSongs category. You can feel her emotion in her voice in the song, which is graceful!

My beloveds! I’ve gotten so many beautiful responses from my recent story, and I just want to urge everyone who responded to read my essay linked in my profile. • I completely understand the difficulties and the nuance involved in staying creative while sick (and/or dying). In fact, I start out my essay with a story about Robert Mapplethorpe and one of the last self-portraits he took before passing from AIDS. • I, too, found photography to be the easiest and most fulfilling way to interact with my creativity— it’s a low-impact sport :). My fatigue drove me right to my camera. • In 2016, I wrote: “I saw an old friend last weekend and I gave him the brief and brutal run-down of the last couple years. He was left baffled. “If you don’t mind me asking,” he said, “how the fuck have you been dealing with all of this?” The very first thought that surfaced in my brain was: I took photos, that’s how.”

Unfortunately, this has been my life for the past couple days😖😴 . Tuesday I was diagnosed with Lymes Disease. The combination of that and the medication I was put on makes me very nauseous/feverish/achey/exhausted so just taking it easy so my body can recover👊 . On the plus side I have gotten to rewatch all the @youcansipwithus episodes & I laugh just as much😂🙌🥂

This is what I was working on this summer : ticks and lyme disease, on birds and small rodents. We first captured birds (here is a Song Sparrow [Melospiza melodia]) and removed all visible ticks. The bird here has a blood-gorged nymph, near the ear. It was a big one; most of the ticks would be much much smaller and hidden under the feather or around the beak and eyes. #lymedisease#ticks#tiques#borrelia#maladiedelyme#recherche#ecologie#ecology#birds#birdresearch#research#oiseaux#songsparrow#bruantchanteur#birding#ornithologie#ornithology

BARKing isn’t just for dogs 🤪 so I made some granola bark to switch up from the usual. I spread RUNNY nut butter on these, homemade jam, dip them into tea or drizzle with coconut butter (I melted @artisanaorganics). I added no sweetener but if you can tolerate honey/nectar they’ll just be that much more delish. . Mixed the almond pulp from my last batch of milk (= 3/4 cup of almond/nut meal) with handful each of pecans, pepitas, rolled oats, whole almonds, poppy seeds, buckwheat groats. Added in 1/2 cup coconut oil, 1 mashed banana, generous amounts of cinnamon and ground ginger and a good pinch of mineral salt. Add in spoonful of honey, nectar or maple syrup to your sweet liking. Mix together, spread onto parchment lined sheet. Should be formed and not falling apart... or add more coconut oil/splash of milk to moisten more. Bake 350F for 45 mins or until crispy and golden. Can also dehydrate on lowest oven setting for a couple hours 🤸🏻‍♀️ . Saving these at my desk for CRUNCH time 🤜🏼 . . . . . . . . . . #paleogranola#granolabars#grainfreegranola#vegan#veganbreakfast#homemadegranola#sibo#organic#lowfodmap#paleo#sibodiet#lymedisease#lyme#stemcell#healthybreakfast#healthybrunch#guthealth#foodismedicine#guthealing#veganrecipes#backtolyfe#spoonfeed#coconutbutter#breakfastideas#grainfree#glutenfree#spoonie#healthysnack#feedfeed#veganfoodshare

Hey lovely people 😺 I've been given a little break from the pain today so I wanted to send out some love and an update regarding my healing journey. I've been starting the new meds for mold so I'm ready for next month when I start my new Lyme protocol. I see my LLMD on the 12th and I'll be starting back up on the oral antibiotics amongst other things. But for now I've started taking LDN, Diflucan, Detox Liquescence & EDTA Nasal spray. I've experienced some intense side effects but today is a better day, so I'm taking full advantage. I'm also still taking the Cholestyramine for mold detox. Our moldy room is still being worked on & with any luck we'll be cleared to move back in within the next couple weeks 🤞🏼 In a few weeks I hit my 1 year mark of Lyme treatment. I've been rolling through so many emotions, especially discouragement for not making more progress with treatment. But I know that feeling discouraged is part of the Lyme package. I'm grateful to have some management strategies in my tool belt to help me handle some of these challenges. I've been especially working with letting go of my anger. I give my anger a face, then I visualize that image floating away in a balloon. I watch it till it disappears into the sky. It's a great trick for the mind. I've had clients imagine some really cool ways of letting go, such as imagining anger being washed away by a stormy sea. Make it your own, I hope it helps you 🎈 I hope all of you amazing warriors are getting through the tough days/weeks okay. Whatever your battle, I pray for a speedy resolution. Much love 💚 #myhealingjourney#sharingforawareness#lymeawareness#lymedisease#lyme#lymetreatment#lymewarrior#lymie#moldie#moldtreatment#spoonie#lettinggo#selfcare#visualization#grateful#daybyday#managementstrategies#emotionaltoolbelt#nevergiveup

Riding out the waves ... Today was my first day feeling fully me after this chronic illness flare. And I had the treat of working on a patient with a very different, chronic and permanent illness. And this is what she said to me "sometimes you just need to ride out the waves". In my work as an #RMT I love to treat patients with chronic illness and chronic pain...because I think there's a piece of the puzzle we can work on and relate to. #massagetherapists don't fix our patients. We help them. We help them keep their symptoms in check, and provide support when symptoms go nuts anyway.

#NewMusic ❤ Download @AvrilLavigne's newest song after five years #HeadAboveWater Her new album of the same title was inspired by the artist's long battle with lyme disease. "One night I thought I was dying, and I had accepted that I was going to die. My mom laid with me in bed and held me," she says in a press release. "I felt like I was drowning. Under my breath, I prayed, 'God, please help me to keep my head above the water." • • #stream#spotify#youtube#inspirationalmusic#inspiration#rock#avrillavigne#music#lymedisease

The chronic illness does not have to stop your dreams and goals! 😃 I planned to go to university to get my degree in interior design, my life-long passion. Then I got sick. I was unable to attend full-time classes. 💚 But that did not stop me! I found a community college with an interior design program. The school's disability services ensured accommodations for me. My mom drove me to college and I took one class per semester. It was exhausting on my weak body. 💚 Working towards this goal helped me cope with the chronic illness. It gave me something bigger to focus on and look forward to! ❤ I took online classes that were available, but all my design and architecture classes were on campus. The last year, I was feeling a little better. I was able to take two classes per semester, and, towards the end, drive by myself! This was a huge accomplishment! 😄 It took 7 years, but I finally earned my Associate's degree in interior design! Keep working towards your goals! It might take longer and look different than you thought, but it is still possible! . . . #spoonie#chronicillness#lymedisease#dysautonomia#lyme#chroniclyme#posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome#invisableillness#chronicpain#autoimmunedisease

I've liked Avril Lavigne since her first album in 2002 but her new song is especially touching. I think anyone who has/is suffering from an invisible illness or neurological condition can really empathize with this song... I know I do. #avrillavigne#headabovewater#myalgicencephalopathy#lymedisease#lymediseaseawareness#fibromyalgiaawareness#fibromyalgia#invisibleillness#myalgicencephalomyelitis

Today is my birthday (and I’m enjoying one of my favorite treats 🍦!) Although I’ve been struggling physically and emotionally with the transition back to work and other issues in my life, today I choose to reflect on how I’ve grown this past year. . In the last year, I had the courage to leave an unhealthy marriage at a time I barely had enough energy to leave the apartment. I stayed in a friend’s studio for two months, packed up my old apartment, moved, went through a divorce, and returned to work, all while dealing daily with health issues. Every time I thought things could not get any crazier, they did. . It was by far the hardest year of my life. . But every day I found things to be grateful for. I would not have gotten through the past year without the support of my family, friends, doctors, healers, and therapists- who constantly checked up on me, asked me what I needed, and went above and beyond at a time I felt lost and broken. . And overall, I am grateful for everything I learned and the person I have become. I am proud of myself for following my intuition while my world was falling apart. For believing in myself. For setting stronger boundaries while at the same time accepting help from others. For loving myself when I felt unloveable. For taking one day at a time and coming out of the ruins a different person- someone who is stronger, wiser, more mindful, more passionate, and more confident. . I still struggle daily, but today I choose to celebrate how far I’ve come. 🎊🎉✨ . . . . #lymedisease#lymediseaseawareness#lymewarrior#lymedontkillmyvibe#chronicillness#butyoudontlooksick#growth#healing#selflove#selfcare#learning#raiseyourvibration#birthday#gratitude#mindfulness#confidence

Wish I could say something athletic like #carbloading, but that would lead one to assume I lifted heavy or something... When in fact I’m just tired and about to go mow. Long week of #homeschooling activities will make the week fly by, but I’m not sure how much sleep I got 🤷‍♀️ I did attempt running twice this week. Rough on my adrenals but I’ll continue one day at a time. #lymedisease#tired#againstallgrainbread#turkeypolishsausage#cauliflowerrice#broccoli#cheese

✨ Simulation! ✨ Today was simulation for my Adult 1 class! Annnddd to be honest it felt like a complete train wreck 😳 I was in a group of three (it’s normally two), so they said they were going to throw in some extra things.... But seriously?! I felt like a chicken running around with its head cut off! Right when we walked in things started going crazy. The patient couldn’t breathe (asthma), was in tons of pain (sprained ankle), and was having anxiety (because she couldn’t breathe). It was just a whole mess 😂 But we got through it and I’m so happy it’s over! However, it was definitely a good learning experience and I’m glad that we get to practice these things in a safe setting. Another good thing is that we got to experience the new Sim lab and mannequin! The new Sim mannequin can breathe, blink, has pulses, and more. It was so cool! #spoonienursingstudent#spooniestudent
