Sometimes working from home has its advantages! hanging out in my men’s hercs shirt, no make up on & replying to 150 emails while sipping on something to give me energy. since my concussion i’ve been avoiding caffeine for the most part or limiting it to small quantities! this sparks juice had zero caffeine in it but all the micronutrients made me feel like i could take on the world today. i was looking for some brain health & anti inflammatory basis and i am super happy with the taste and how good my tummy felt after. super going to be adding these into my morning routine more often.

Eply’s maneuver!

#treatment for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (#bppv) with the eply canolith repositioning maneuver where the issue is in the patient’s left posterior canal.
...
the idea is to move the patient’s head through a series of positions to allow loose otolithic crystals to roll out of the canal and back into the utricle using gravity
...
the eply maneuver has 3 distinct positions and each one is held until the dizziness and nystagmus subside, plus an additional 30 seconds:
1. head rotated 45deg to the affected side
2. head rotated 45deg to the unaffected side
3. keeping the head turned 45deg to the unaffected side, have the patient roll onto their unaffected shoulder
sit them up. wait 5 minutes and then test again.

Day 244 pcs: today i took my cognitive therapist's advice and made sure to do something that i enjoy and makes me happy... i went to the stable and spent time with this sweet dragon. dealing with the anxiety that has accompanied my concussion is not easy, but just walking around on my mare helps ease that tension and allows me to breathe a little more easily. as part of my therapy, i know i need to get out, socialize, exercise, and experience the stimuli that overwhelm my brain so i can rebuild my stamina. sometimes stores or restaurants are too much... but i can take the baby step of at least getting out to the stable, and that counts for something. the peace and sense of accomplishment that it brings help me face the challenges life has thrown at me.

Today was my first appointment for concussion recovery physical therapy. i had no idea how hard it was going to be. so i got home and within an hour my headache was so bad and my body said i needed to rest. so i set a timer like i was told too, laid down, put my sweater over my eyes to block the light and after the light show which happens every time i close my eye now i actually fell asleep. only to be woken up by the timer 25 minutes later, really confused of where i was and why it was so dark. in my house nap time is very serious so when my son realized i fell asleep he tried to make it so i could stay asleep! i wish i didn't have to get up but if i don't there is no way i will sleep tonight. #londonlife #concussionrecovery #neededrest #nappinghouse #napsareseriousbusiness #needdarkness #needmoresleep

After a few weeks off i’m finally able to get some workouts in in moderation. i took it back to my first ever workout program that i did over a year and a half ago. i modified a lot (more than when i first started this journey). it i’m so happy i was able to get my workout in 😍 .
.
.
it’s so crazy how i was in such a routine and was so thrown off when i couldn’t workout. it’s feels great to be able to get my sweat on while still listening to my body.

“if you stumble in life... make it part of your dance...” - unknown.

. day 789 pcs 🧠💭- do you find that you are one of those people, that are very h*****n themselves? to fall, make a mistake, or do something that isn’t up to par to your standards , leaves you deflated and feeling as if you failed?.

. me too!!

. in fact, i was so h*****n myself that i caused so much unnecessary stress and anxiety in my day to day life!! my ideal of perfection was too high, and it made it very hard to to see the beauty in the imperfections!.

. having to relearn elementary skills after my injury , shined a big light on this issue for me! i’d have to do stuff my brain said you should know this! what is wrong with you? why are you so stupid?.

this internal dialogue, was not only unhealthily, but actually pushed me further from my goal! it wasn’t till i allowed myself to make mistakes, and be kind to myself like i would to my best friend, did i actually start to grow!!

holding on to these expectations we give ourselves and others only holds us back!!when we learn to let go of these expectations, we start to notice that no one sees our “mistakes” as failures, but as “part of our dance”!!


. so today - allow yourself to make those mistakes and smile to yourself when you do!!.
✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ there’s beauty in - imperfection ✨ ✨ ✨

Minding my posture throughout the day and adding a standing desk at work has been huge in managing my symptoms post injury. i try to change between sitting and standing every hour and several times throughout my work day i remind myself to sit up straight, keep my shoulders back and down, and make sure my neck is in a neutral position. #concussionrecovery #whiplashinjury #concussionawareness #tbisurvivor #tbiawareness #hopeafterimpact #posture #spinehealth

He’s got a case of the wookies under his covers and over his eyes. 🧠

background of crazy brain quotes (cbqs): when my brain is tired, fritzing, or having a seizure and i decide to open my mouth, cbqs are the sorts of things that come out. my family enjoys them, especially my kids, although emily might be a little less fond of them because they can signal a quick descent into other symptoms.
__
when they happen, i think that what i am saying is crystal clear. what others hear is more like a ball of tape rolling across a linty floor, picking up randomness.
__
there are times when i know they are happening and i can write them down. in the moment, they make complete sense to me. when i re-read them or hear someone recite them, well...😂 🤔😮☺️🙃🧠❤️
__
laughter and humor are important elements of my recovery and it’s almost like cbqs have been a gift in this season. they’re random, sometimes thought-provoking, and they all made sense to this beautiful brain at one time or another.
__
i hope you enjoy. i have hundreds written down and the cbq fount doesn’t look like it’s going to dry up any time soon.

cheers ✌️

Remember to celebrate every victory - big or small🧠💪🏼💕
. . .
in june i tried to start exercising again on a stationary bike. my doctor said to me that even if i do it for two minutes it’s better than nothing. i have to admit i am a very “all or nothing” person, so two minutes seemed like a waste of time to me. if i couldn’t do it like i used to, why do it at all?
. . .
exercising these past few months has been very unpredictable in terms of how i was going to feel symptom-wise afterwards, which was very confusing and disheartening for me, but here are a few things i focused on to keep me going:
🚴🏼‍♀️keeping my heart rate in the range that was determined for my personal recovery using the buffalo treadmill test as well as a lot of trial and error- ex: i switched to the elliptical as it worked better for me. .
🚴🏼‍♀️changing my mentality from “wow only two minutes in and i already have symptoms? i’m never going to be able to exercise how i used to again. i’m going no where” to “alright 2 minutes today. maybe we’ll add 30 seconds tomorrow, maybe we won’t - either is ok. what matters is that i’m doing something”
🚴🏼‍♀️wearing my favourite workout attire of course.
🚴🏼‍♀️knowing that any amount of exercise i do (within my limitations) is in fact beneficial for my body in multiple ways, including my concussion recovery. (thanks to the research out there). .
. . .
today i’m able to do 20 minutes. literally a dream i never thought was going to happen in june. moral of the long caption...finding a way to believe that i was doing enough by cycling for 120 seconds in june helped me to continue day in and day out. even if physiologically 120 seconds did nothing, my scared, broken lil soul needed to know it was still something. everything counts, big or small.

People enter your life for a reason. whether it’s to inspire or learn from, or to teach a life lesson etc. there is always a reason. @ruthsaunders1981 is a client i first shot in 2014, she stood out with her hebrew tattoo (i’m half israeli) and her powerful spirit. since then, we have become increasingly close friends. she is such an amazing human with just the most genuine of hearts. i am thankful to know her and call her a friend. we shot this series in the summer after nationals, and it was a really really special shoot. ruth is most at home in the water and it showed. i’m so thankful to live in such a gorgeous city with amazing locations, it’s quite a privilege. the real challenge however was that i got a concussion the day before this shoot (i wasn’t sure yet) and she also has been overcoming post concussion issues, so between the two of us it was a bit interesting haha. but we managed to shoot and not get hurt further. 😜 i hope you enjoy these unretouched images. .

I remember when my doctor put a name to how i was feeling. i was in his office angry w/tears running down my face saying “i don’t like this feeling, i feel like a weak a*s helpless b***h & i’m not”. he simply replied “ you’re right, you’re not” and explained to me what anxiety is & some coping skills.
@ethereal.1 always breaks stuff down so well 💕

repost from @ethereal.1 ・・・
anxiety shows up differently, in different people. irritability is actually one of the most ignored/dismissed symptoms with anxiety. people think of anxiety as only being crippling, in the sense of not being able to do anything. someone rocking back & forth in a corner. someone freezing up when being confronted & hyperventilating etc. however, for many anxiety causes them to be more reactive than others. being loud or chatty even is often dismissed. this doesn’t even scratch the surface with physical symptoms. from chronic nausea, to chronic pain due to ongoing stress. so much more. be kind, be open minded, & be empathetic. you wouldn’t necessarily be cool as a cucumber if you experienced it either. .
