Cuddles from my baby girl. She knows when I need a snuggle x

Rest in peace, Lauren Bacall ♥
Don’t forget to care for your caregivers. I was reminded of this today, of just how much work it takes to be in a caregiver role, and how lucky I am to have the loved ones I do. It’s a reminder that I think we, those of us that are chronically ill, need to hear from an outside source every once in a while.
Don’t forget to thank the friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives, and other family members that give their time, emotional and physical energy, love and support.
It’s unbearably difficult, exhausting, and painful to sit back and watch as someone you love suffers in any capacity.
So here’s to the caregivers. Don’t forget to tell those around you that you love them, that you appreciate them. Give them a break the way you give your own body a break when it needs rest.
And while you’re at it, watch this fantastic ignite speech on Patient-Caregiver Relationships by Afternoon Napper. It will give you chills and a massive dose of perspective.
Laura gave me bubbles in my birthday box so I got stoned and started blowing them at Clementine who crept into my room at some ungodly hour. I have never seen her so confused or fascinated by anything. “How do I catch them?! Where do they go?!”
My birthday box from Laura, one of my best friends. Full of stuff perfect for a spoonie. I love her so much. Lots of stuff written all over the box but just snapped a few of the quotes.
Also that card is exactly what I would have picked for myself, although I may have to rethink it in the future

Anxiety & Helping Someone Cope.
I didn’t want to make it overwhelming or too long remember, so I kept it to the main points that benefit me greatly when I’m experiencing an attack.
40 million of Americans alone suffer with anxiety; it’s a horrid feeling when you know someone just wants to help you but you cannot even construct a simple sentence at the time, so please share this in hope that it benefits even just 1 person. Muchos love.
