This is how I explain my Invisible Illness

An invisible illness is defined as any medical conditional that isn’t easily visible to others. This includes chronic physical conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, fibromyalgia, and Functional Neurological Disorder, which is what I have. It also includes mental illnesses. As you appear to be fine on the outside, people don’t understand you are really ill. This leads to frustration from the person ill and those around them. Add to this, my symptoms vary in their severity from day, week or month. Someone might see me “looking fine” so not understand why I then have cancel plans, for example. So this is how I explain my invisible illness and why.

Project Get Tina Fit-The Approach for Success

I don’t know how many times I’ve started a weight-loss plan, some with more success than others. However here I am, needing to lose weight again! Losing weight is hard. Losing weight when you have are chronically ill? Hmmm. I’ve gone round and round in circles and seem to fall off the bandwagon when I have a symptom flare. I need an approach for success, that will work for me all the time; symptom-free and flare ups.

So what’s my approach?

How My Wellbeing Review Left Me Emotional

Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - Hello March

This post was updated on 24/03/18

Today is my Wellbeing Wednesday! The first Wednesday of the month where I share my plans for my wellbeing for the month ahead. I’ve recently set up a new format for this, you can read more about this here.

Well before I delve into the categories I should mention that I have set a challenge for March. #3forMe March Self-Care Challenge is about carrying out 3 self-care activities every day.  It is too easy to get caught up in the day to day and not spend time looking after your mind, body and soul. This challenge keeps me accountable to do just that.

I am so excited that a number of people are also taking part in both Shine in Self-Care Facebook group and Instagram. I am on a mission to get as many people taking care of themselves more. If you would like to get involved, click on either link above.

Otherwise read on to see what March wellbeing looks like for me.

This post was updated on 24/03/18

It seems to be the culture these days, that everyone is more and more busy. Diaries have to be full, who can get their Christmas decorations up first and elaborate plans to celebrate. Let’s stop the glorification of busy. Let’s slow down and enjoy the hear and now. This will mean and healthier and happier way of living, especially at this already busy time of year. We are so busy, running around with hectic social calendars, getting the house and family ready for Christmas, we need to remember to look after ourselves first.
