What small victory would you like to celebrate? πŸ’› No small victory is too small! It's so important for us in the chronic illness community to cheer each other on when we complete tasks or try to complete tasks which may seem overly easy to those outside our community. We know how difficult seemingly small victories can be to achieve. Whatever your victory might be, I'm rooting for you! πŸ₯° Follow @joannanobanana for more content like this! #ChronicIllness #ChronicallyIll

Celebrate your wins no matter how small they may seem to other people! πŸ’› It’s advice I give so often to others yet forget to take myself most of the time. So hi, this is me celebrating going outside. Something that’s difficult for me to do both physically and mentally. What would you like us to celebrate that you did? Comment below! No win is too small for us to celebrate! πŸ’› #ChronicIllness #ChronicallyIll #Disabled #Disability

Double tap if you can relate! πŸ’› Chronic illness affects the way we exist in this world. Some of our past dreams are so inaccessible to us that we are forced to let them go. Other dreams can still be pursued with accommodations, but that's not usually as simple as it sounds. Something I've had to pursue with accommodations is exercise. All three of the trifecta (MCAS, EDS, and POTS) play big roles in how I can and can't safely move my body. I'm excited to start exercising more again and share that process with you. One big dream for me is to get back into boxing. I know my wrists can't handle it now as my joints are too unsteady but that's a dream I'm slowly working towards. I'm hoping to get my EDS under control with exercise, Vitamin C, and whatever else I can do to help it. What dreams have changed for you? (Can be in terms of loss or any other changes) Comment below! πŸ’› Follow @joannanobanana for more content like this! #ChronicIllness #ChronicallyIll #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #Dysautonomia #MastCellActivationSyndrome

Having the same chronic illness as someone else can be an opportunity to connect with someone who experiences similar struggles, such as similar symptoms, which is extremely helpful in feeling less alone in our struggles with chronic illness. That being said, there will likely still be some differences as everyone is a unique individual on their own path. Some people will have certain comorbidities. Others won't. Some people will have support from a partner, family, and/or friends. Others won't. Some people will have good insurance which allows them to see proper doctors and get their medicine for a fair price. Others won't. Even the way in which that chronic illness two people have in common can vary in terms of the symptoms themselves and how they affect the daily living of both individuals. That's why it's so important to not compare our chronic illness / health with others! All you can do is to do your best, learn from each other, and help each other out however we can. πŸ’› Remember that social media is mostly a highlight reel for the strong majority of people. Personally, even as someone who tries to showcase both the highs and lows, it's oftentimes difficult to showcase the lows at that moment due to other things taking priority in those moments. Also some symptoms can be really traumatizing so I don't showcase certain symptoms (such as throat closing due to anaphylaxis) because I don't want to traumatize others. If I was to ever showcase anything like that for educational reasons, I would make sure that it had proper warnings. It's not easy to show an accurate representation of highs and lows, but we all try to do our best to speak our truth. πŸ’› Follow @joannanobanana for more content like this! #ChronicIllness #ChronicallyIll #MastCellActivationSyndrome #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #Dysautonomia #SpoonieSupport #ChronicIllnessAwareness #ChronicIllnessLife #ChronicIllnessCommunity

#ad Are you looking for a gluten free staple for your kitchen? @daringfoods has you covered! Daring’s 100% plant chicken comes in a variety of delicious flavors. All of these flavors - the Original, Cajun, Lemon & Herb, Teriyaki, and Breaded - are gluten free! Which of these flavors do you want to try out the most? Comment below! For this recipe, I simmered Daring’s 100% plant chicken (Original flavor) in olive oil. Then I added a heavy hand of taco seasoning. After that, it’s just putting all the ingredients together! Shredded lettuce, cheese, and sour cream on a gluten free flour tortilla. (You can also substitute the butter, cheese, and sour cream for non-dairy versions if you want a fully dairy-free meal!) Whichever way you decide to make it, it’ll taste delicious! #GlutenFree #GlutenFreeMeals #GlutenFreeCooking #GlutenFreeRecipe #DaringPartner #DareToSwap and #GetDaring
