Let the sea set you free

Go on ask me something!   Submit   Its simple really. My names Keesje. I live in the beautiful country of Aotearoa. I'm a Dutch Maori with a Samoan heart hahaha. I have been blessed with the most amazing friends and family,

I'm a palagi but my heart is Samoan ;) They say home is where the heart is so I guess that means Samoa is home <3

♥I TRUST IN GOD♥

I live with an invisible illness and quite honestly it sucks, don't be so quick to judge people. I may appear fine but I live my life in constant pain.

Tonight as I crawled into bed after a 9 hour shift with my new wheat bags my Nana made me and my frangipani incense burning I realised how incredibly blessed I am. Yes I am living with this horrible illness but I am doing it, I am living!! I never thought I’d ever be able to work fulltime yet I’m doing it, it absolutely kills me and is so hard but I’m making it through each day. I know its not much to other people but to me it’s incredible and I haven’t used my crutches in the last 4 months which is something I never thought would be possible. Fuck you fibromyalgia I’m a fighter!!!

I miss you way more than I should. The calls and the texts have stopped, I guess that means you&#8217;ve moved on. I know I need to too. I would&#8217;ve been coming back for your birthday in just a few weeks but everything&#8217;s changed now. The boys tell me that you&#8217;re well and still going hard at your rugby which makes me happy. I wish things had of worked out between us, I know it wasn&#8217;t perfect but it was definitely worth it for me anyway. I miss you and everyday wish that I had been enough for you

"The butterfly is a symbol for fibromyalgia - just the lightest touch, like one of a butterfly landing on you, can still hurt like hell."
Fibromyalgia is a common and complex chronic pain disorder that causes widespread pain and tenderness to the touch that may occur body wide or migrate over the body. It affects people physically, mentally, and socially. It is estimated that 200 million to 400 million  people worldwide suffer from this disorder. Yet so many people don’t know about it.The pain of fibromyalgia is profound, chronic, and widespread. It can migrate to all parts of the body and vary in intensity. FM pain has been described as stabbing and shooting pain, with deep muscular aching, throbbing, and twitching. 
The fatigue of FM is an all-encompassing exhaustion that can interfere with occupational, personal, social, or educational activities. Symptoms include profound exhaustion and poor stamina.
Many people with fibro have an associated sleep disorder that prevents them from achieving deep, restful, restorative sleep.

Other signs, symptoms, and overlapping conditionsmay include: irritable bowel and bladder syndrome, headaches and migraines, restless legs syndrome (periodic limb movement disorder), impaired memory and concentration, skin sensitivities and rashes, dry eyes and mouth, anxiety, depression, ringing in the ears, dizziness, vision problems, Raynaud’s Syndrome, neurological symptoms, and impaired coordination. 
There is no cure and doctors don’t exactly know what causes fibro, but they say that it could be a few factors. 
Spread awareness and show support for those who suffer.

I was thinking the other day that chronic illness sufferers are unbelievably good at coping because we really just have to be. We’ve been put into a situation where we have no choice but to simply carry on and manage. We may rarely be okay, but we cope, and there’s a lot to be said for that.

I’m not lazy!

I thought my parents of all people understood my fibromyalgia but no they just think I’m lazy. I’m working full time which is absolutely killing me to the point where I get home from work every night and just burst into tears and now my parents want me to study full time as well because “I’m not doing anything with my life”. This morning they woke me up 2 hours before I needed to be up for a 10 hour shift to do some dishes that weren’t even fucking mine because I’m getting too lazy.
