I 110% don’t want to be here today. I don’t want to walk through a hospital, I don’t want to be in an infusion center, I don’t want to be stuck 10 times because my veins are brats, and I don’t want other people’s plasma. 🙅🏼♀️ Today I just want good health, no lesions, better immunoglobulins and a neurological system that doesn’t malfunction. 🙏🏽 Instead I’m getting a long list of things I don’t want and I’m super salty about it. 🧂 Being sick is hard. There’s nothing glam or cute about it. It’s just a pure bitch. Minimizing the hardships of the journey that so many people are living is a disservice. Let my saltiness translate to: I see you, I feel you, you’re not alone in this, and it’s ok to be a little salty with your sweet. ❤️ #thisisms
No, I did not get my hair cut and colored! This is a repost from @mssociety of @agnesshresthafitmom that says it all, or almost all, about #MS in my case. ❤️
“This disease has a nasty way of sneaking up on you, but I refuse to let it win. Tingles. Weakness. Numbness. Mood swings. Fatigue. Things I’ve been feeling lately. Things I haven’t ever really felt. I’m scared and it sucks, but I am #MadeStrong . I still don’t share enough about my disease and my symptoms bc honestly I’ve been extremely fortunate since 2008. I also think I roll off symptoms as being “nothing.” Guess I’m still in slight denial about it 😕. One thing I’m not in denial about is taking care of myself. This disease can eventually kick my ass, but you better believe I’m gonna fight back. And fight back hard. #MS take that 👊🏼.” ~
Acho que melhorei ne minha gente kkkk 🤣
Na primeira foto foi em 2009 no ano que lancei meu primeiro CD. Esse ano dia 15 de setembro faço 10 anos de ministério. Caminhada longa. Quem me vê pensa que comecei ontem. Que nada. Já vivi muitas experiências na estrada. #10yearchallenge#10yearschallenge#10anos#MS
When 20 meets 30! I’ve still got that ‘pretend that there’s not a camera on me and look off into the distance’ look down! I’ve still got a drink in my hand and a pout. I couldn’t feel further from that 20 year old if I tried. For starters my eye brows are so much fuller now - thank god and I have found the beauty of getting my lashes done and how to not use as much blusher 😂 but appearance aside a lot has changed. In the first photo I was a girl thinking she was a woman, feeling like nothing would get me. I wish I could go back and tell her to not make some mistakes she’s made over the years, I wish I could tell her to get out life insurance, I wish I could tell her to enjoy life more, not to worry as much, to not sweat the small stuff. I wish I could tell her that the life she dreams of with the perfect man, her own home, and good friends around her will happen but it will just be slightly different to what she thought. I wish she knew how resilient she actually is, how showing her vulnerabilities is worth it because it would help people in the future, I wish she knew that everything she felt over the next 10 years was setting her up to be the person I am now! I know this is a bit deep but one of my biggest regrets was not understanding who I was as a person sooner but now I do (well I think I do!) I’m going to embrace every moment of it - MS and all!!! #10yearchallenge#multiplesclerosis#ms#autoimmunedisease#disabled#disability#disabilityawareness#msawareness#lemtrada#lemtradajourney#msfam#msproblems#mser#strenght#resilience#10years#change#invisibleillness#woman
I really love coffee. I also really love Dr Rhonda Patrick who my husband introduced me to through the Joe Rogan Podcast, and now I love him too. Dr Rhonda Patrick @foundmyfitness recently posted something that leaves me feeling less guilty about my daily coffee: A very recent randomized controlled trial found consumption of dark roast coffee brew (500 ml/day) for 1 month caused a 23% reduction in DNA damage in white blood cells compared to baseline levels. DNA damage can accelerate the aging process and lead to cancer.
DNA damage leads to accelerated telomere shortening, which is a biomarker for aging. This data was a randomized controlled trial which is able to establish causation and is consistent with a couple other randomized controlled trials that have also shown coffee reduces oxidative damage in white blood cells. It is also in line with epidemiological studies that have shown coffee consumption is associated with significantly longer telomeres in a dose-dependent manner (meaning more cups of coffee were associated with longer telomeres). In addition, other associative studies have shown that people who consumed at least four cups of coffee per day had a 64% lower risk of all-cause mortality than those who never or almost never consumed coffee. There was a 22% lower risk of all-cause mortality for every two additional cups of coffee per day.
Mechanistic studies in animals and in cell culture have found that several compounds in coffee are able to induce potent anti-oxidant and repair pathways including glutathione transferase induction and autophagy.
Title of the study: "Consumption of a dark roast coffee blend reduces DNA damage in humans: results from a 4-week randomised controlled study." #coffee#dnadamage#aging#longevity#telomeres#autophagy#polyphenols#rct#ms#autoimmunedisease
