#Ad Is the air at your job or in your house making you sick? At one point, that was the case for me! I was finding it incredibly difficult to concentrate, especially due to constant headaches. Eventually I learned about how common it is to have poor airflow which was causing the CO2 at work and in my bedroom to be way too high. Nowadays, I make sure that my CO2 levels stay at a good number by using the Aranet4 HOME!

POTS math ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿป As Dysautonomia Awareness Month comes to a close and I've been super intrigued by "girl math", I wanted to shed some light on the intricate math that goes on inside our bodies when living with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). For those of us with POTS, our bodies are always in calculation mode: ๐Ÿ’ง Water: We're always figuring out how much we need to drink to stay hydrated. Too much or too little, and our bodies let us know with symptoms like dizziness, brain fog, or rapid heart rate. ๐Ÿง‚ Salt: Salt becomes our secret weapon. We add it to our diet to help our bodies retain fluids and regulate blood pressure. Finding the right balance is crucial, like a culinary science experiment every mealtime. โšก Electrolytes: These are the conductors in our body's symphony. We need to ensure that we maintain the right balance of electrolytes to avoid heart palpitations, muscle cramps, and fatigue. ๐ŸŒก๏ธ Temperature: Our bodies are like over-sensitive thermostats, constantly trying to keep from getting overly cold and from getting overheated. A change in temperature can lead to a cascade of symptoms. Living with POTS means we're always doing this math, recalculating, and adjusting our strategies. As we near the end of Dysautonomia Awareness Month, let's take a moment to appreciate the adaptability and mathematical equations of those living with POTS and other forms of Dysautonomia. Question: For those with any form of Dysautonomia, how do you balance this sort of math? I would love to hear from you!

Double tap if you can relate! ๐Ÿ’› Life with chronic illness is a continuous tightrope walk between our fundamental needs and the desires that fuel our spirit. Every day presents new challenges and triumphs as we strive to find that delicate equilibrium. External pressures and expectations that society, family, friends, co-workers, managers, and many others can place upon us make it an even trickier situation. It's not just about managing our own inner balance; it's also about navigating the external pressures and misconceptions. That being said, through it all, we find strength in the unwavering support of those who understand our unique battles. So here's to everyone who can relate to this post. Sending much love your way! ๐Ÿ’› Question: What's the best tip that you've learned (or are in the process of learning) to manage living with a chronic illness especially in relation to others around you? I would love to hear your insight!

Double tap if you can relate! ๐Ÿ’› Let's take a moment to explore the unique way chronic illness shifts our perspective on what it means to feel good. Picture waking up with a collection of sensations that others might categorize as distressing, yet finding a sense of accomplishment in the midst of it all. We rewrite our definitions of wellness by learning how our bodies function and when they need healthcare, rest, etc. We learn the language of our bodies, speaking in hushed tones of self-care, and shouting with pride at our victories, no matter how small they may seem to others. What symptoms do you experience on the daily which are normal to you but would worry others if they experienced them? I would love to hear about your experience! ๐Ÿ’› Follow @joannanobanana for more posts about chronic illness! #MastCellActivationSyndrome #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #MCAS #EDS #Dysautonomia #PotsSyndrome #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome #ChronicIllness #Spoonie #InvisibleIllness #CranioCervicalInstability #Dysautonomia #PotsSyndrome #ChronicPain #Heds

Double tap if you experience this too! ๐Ÿ’› In the tapestry of life, the threads of our health can sometimes be woven with complexities that challenge our sense of balance. Living with a chronic illness has its own dance of better and tougher days.๐Ÿ’ƒ One moment, we might find ourselves embracing the sweet relief of a better health day, where your symptoms subside. In those moments, it's like you're catching a glimpse of what life used to be and/or could be. On these relatively better days, the urge to pack in all the missed moments, postponed plans, and unfinished projects becomes almost irresistible. Itโ€™s a reminder to seize the moment, because who knows when this opportunity will come next time? If itโ€™ll come again? We push ourselves, oftentimes a bit too far, striving to capture all those moments in a net of enthusiasm. Thatโ€™s okay. Donโ€™t be too harsh with yourself for doing this. It's a journey of learning to cherish the energy we have today while keeping an eye on the energy we'll need tomorrow. It's a delicate equilibrium between seizing the day and nurturing the body. So here's to those of us who havenโ€™t quite figured out that delicate equilibrium yet! May life allow us some relatively better health days filled with rest, excitement, and no errands to run! ๐Ÿ’› How do you manage on your relatively better health days? Do you have any tips to not overdo it? I would love to hear your insight!

Double tap if you can relate! โค It's so easy to fall into the trap of comparing our progress to others and feeling like we're somehow behind in this grand race of life. But here's the truth that we often forget: We can't be behind others when we're all on different paths, each with its own twists and turns, challenges and triumphs. ๐Ÿ’› Life has a funny way of throwing us curveballs and surprising us in ways we could have never anticipated. I know it's tough when our carefully laid-out plans don't unfold the way we envisioned them. It's okay to feel disappointed, frustrated, or even heartbroken by the detours life presents us. Those emotions are valid. โค Amidst all the unexpected shifts, let's also remember the magic that lies within these uncharted territories. The setbacks might just be setups for the most beautiful comebacks. The rerouted paths might lead us to breathtaking destinations we hadn't even dared to dream of. โœจ So, as we embrace the present moment, let's release the notion of being 'behind.' Let's celebrate the progress we've made, the battles we've fought, and the resilience that resides within us (even when it's not fair how much resilience we must hold in order to survive.) ๐ŸŒป Each of us is writing a story that's uniquely ours. The best chapters of our stories are still unfolding, and I can't wait to see what wonders they hold. ๐Ÿฅฐ For more posts like this follow @joannanobanana Do you find it difficult not to compare your progress to others?
