❤️A very personal post❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All my life, since I was a little girl, I have struggled with neckpain. This moved to backpain, shoulderpain and at the end pain in my joints. It startet with the fingers, and now it is in the toes, knees and many of the other joints in my body. I have the diagnosis fibromyalgia (FM). FM is a rheumatic disease, but it's not arthritis even though the pain are similar. My joints (usually, it has happened) doesn't swell, but the pain can sometimes be unbearable. Fibromyalgia doesn't explain all my symptoms though, but it explains most of them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I recently discovered that I haven't talked about this as much. Never here, but neither that often with friends or family. I don't know why because I haven't kept it a secret. But when you live with pain every single day you try not to focus on it and try to use your energy in other positive places. Also, the disease is quite controversial. Many thinks its a "made up diagnosis", but it's not. It's under the "rheumatic" category and even though you can't test it with a bloodtest, that doesn't mean its not real. For instance they have seen some abnormalities in some brainstructures by doing a CT on FM-patients. But basically, FM = the nociceptors (pain cells) are over-activated, hence pain. There are no cure, but some (me included) gets worse when it is cold, rainy and windy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So why do I talk about this now? Well, I haven't been so active here on instagram the last couple of days and that is basically because of a painful week. And I figured that for the days it is unbearable and I want to cut my fingers of with a knife (crazy, but true haha), it would be good to have some understanding from those close around me (I am open to my boyfriend, btw). Also, I belive there are many other people out there living with FM that are afraid to speak out because of many peoples lack of knowledge about the disease. So I though at least I could speak out. Please, if you also have FM don't hesitate to DM me❤️

Ima tell my kids this where I grew up! 🤣🤷🏽‍♀️ . . . A visit to Rosenborg Castle will have you feeling like you stepped into a Disney movie! I enjoyed exploring the beautifully landscaped grounds and gazing at the grandeur of this Danish castle built in the 17th century! . . . #copenhagen🇩🇰 #denmark #imatellmykids #immatellmykids #rosenborgcastle #wintertravel #blackgirlblogger #wegotoo #girlslovetravel #blacktravelfeed #roadto100countries #blackandabroad #blacktravelgram #travelnoire

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends” – Maya Angelou . . . I can’t tell you how many times on our trip we would just stop whatever we were doing to take in the scenery. We would shake our heads in complete awe and say, “What IS this place?” So many parts of this beautiful country don’t even seem real and it’s no wonder the people say this is where the Garden of Eden was! It seems so wild, untouched, and surreal. . . Aside from the unbelievable scenery, the people were incredibly warm and welcoming. When I travel it is so equally important to me that I get to talk to the people (even if it’s in very bad broken French and they laugh and respond to me in perfect English like “um, hi” 😅), try allllll the different foods 🤤, and learn about the culture. . . Travel isn’t just about what there is to see (or ‘gram), it’s also about what you can learn and how you can make connections with people from every walk of life regardless of age, race, religion, etc. . . Most importantly, it has taught me to look for the similarities instead of focusing on our differences. 💛
