Hello my lovelies - a beautiful and brilliant spoonie friend of mine created a map for spoonies so you can see if you have anyone near you. Join the map if you’d like! Any questions can be directed to Brittany @brittieslifeasiknowit

Spoonie Tumblr Map directions
http://goo.gl/maps/T4bv0
click edit
play around with zoom to find your location on the map
click the peg(between the hand and squiggly line)
click your location and add you name/tumblr name and whatever you want to add
then click ok and you’re done

This has become more successful than I have ever dreamed of. I am so happy.

If you haven’t checked out the spoonie map, please do so and add yourself, as well.

I wish I lived near you: we could go on walks together.

with my ferrets? I would love going on walks with someone

With a new diagnosis, doctors, and med. I have been told I need to lose weight. The meds aren’t helping. The past year, I have gained 47 pounds.

  • drink 9 cups a day of water
  • work out 3 times a week
  • be outside at least 30 minutes per day
  • track meals
  • go to bed early and wake up early
  • prepare week’s worth of meals
  • weekly weigh ins
  • try to eat 5 times a day, regardless of how I am feeling

Once you get this you must post 5 nice things about yourself then send it to 10 of your favorite followers!

I really needed this since my doctors are now telling me that I need to lose weight. My self esteem went down even though I know it is the medication’s fault. Thank you miladapted

  1. My hair grows fast. I am growing my hair to donate it for cancer kids. Last time I donated it was in 2011. Hair is important to young kids who lose their hair to chemo. I was devastated when I lost my hair and got a wig but it didn’t fit properly. I want to give back.
  2. I make people’s day just being me. My senior english teacher wrote in my yearbook that I give her hope.
  3. I go out of my way to accommodate people.
  4. I enjoy cooking and I cook very well.
  5. I am creative and can create stuff out of nothing.

Ahh, he said I’d feel better if I lost weight.

I gained 47 pounds in a year because of being in a wheelchair and lyrica.

He also said I need to be more active and spontaneous , like go to NYC.

I wish I could do all that.

I’m trying to come off lyrica and maybe I can lose the weight.

SN: I got orders on my art but pricing/shipping is giving me anxiety.
