I’m tired of being afraid.... that was my reason for taking a firearms safety class with this amazing woman this weekend 🙏💜 she didn’t hesitate to sign up with me when I asked. The moment we met I knew I wanted her in my life 🦄🦋 She has inspired me to be brave and share my story unabashedly cuz well... she was willing to share hers. There is a certain level of healing by sharing your story🙏🙏 that is how you find your people👭👭 you know the ones that get YOU and appreciate you for being your #trueself When I became a coach 9 months ago I wanted to find myself and along the way I have found true #friendships with peeps just like me 💜 I guess you could say your vibe attracts your tribe 🤗🤗 I had no idea that vibe would travel all the way from Louisiana and cross my path. Forever grateful she did. To be honest not long before she showed up I asked the universe to send me a friend 👭 no really I prayed 🙏🙏 for this girl 🙄 and she showed up full blast on day one ☝️ and stated we were going to be #bestfriends the really cool 😎 thing about #selfdiscovery is that you are able to let go of fear and try new things and it’s even better when you get to share those new adventures with a friend. 🤗🤗🤗 so when I say I am tired of being afraid.... I am tired of being afraid to be myself and I finally found a friend I can be myself around with out any judgement or being worried she might hurt me cuz I totally trust this girl 💜💜 Just another amazing gift this coaching opportunity has given me. Not too late to join this months coach academy or challenge group. I mean you can lose weight, get healthy and make some besties 💕 along the way !! Hit me up to lose 5-15 lbs in 3 weeks before the holidays 💪😍
HAPPY BELATED NURSE PRACTITIONER WEEK! @justineeeeeeee here 👋🏽 Soooo, I totally forgot the password to this account and just haven’t logged in for a while. Life gets in the way sometimes. And honestly, while this social media account has been an amazing place to connect with like-minded folks in medicine, it can also feel way too draining at times. I jump back and forth between really wanting to immerse myself in this community of other healthcare providers who understand me and what I go through, and also just wanting to disconnect from work-related shit all together once I’m out of the office/hospital. Anyone else? Just me? 🤷🏻♀️
Anywayyy, nevertheless, we’re here and hoping these posts inspire at least a few people out there! Whether you’re in school or working, looking for a job or merely thinking of changing careers into nursing/NP, whatever the case, we wish you all the good energy and warm fuzzies. We’re not perfect and we struggle just the same as y’all. We’re in this together. Keep going ♥️
Also major shoutout to @wearfigs, who committed to donating 100% of profits from online and store sales this past weekend to support relief efforts for those affected by the California fires recently 🙏🏼👊🏽 Charitable and comfy af. That’s what we like.
Birthday festivities! 🎉 Feeling so old at the age of 24. Every year I feel significantly older, hence the reason I’ve earned the title of ‘grandma Neeki’. Nice to have gone out for once, until next year!
Working in healthcare requires more than hands-on skills and knowledge. Communication is key — which can be difficult when there is a language barrier. Spanish is the most common language barrier I’ve come across in my experience of working in 4 different Emergency Departments. Using translators/translation phones/devices are very helpful — however, learning key terms and sentences have been the most helpful in my experience!

You break through at one level, arrive at the next, and take another step up. Each time you grow, you get to learn something new, which basically means you have to get uncomfortable again. Because when you arrive at a level you’ve never been at before, you’re faced with challenges you’ve never experienced before. It’s the willingness to keep pushing through new challenges, not shrink from them back into your comfort zone, that separates the successful from the unsuccessful. #youareabadass#comfortzone#keeptrucking
Three and a half years ago I came down with mononucleosis, and I didn’t know what hit me. I had friends that had mono in the past and they told me I’d feel like hell on earth for about a month. They were right. However, about two weeks into it, I was dizzier than I’d ever been and my ears began to ring with horrible tinnitus. I assumed that it was par for the course, as I was dehydrated. Even the ER I worked at thought the same and gave me a few litres of NS, a few labs, and sent me on my marry way. Months later, I was still more tired than ever, and the tinnitus accompanied with a constant sensation of just feeling off was lingering. I didn’t have the right words to describe it and was probably not as clear as I should have been with my GP with how horrible I was feeling. It was just assumed to be stress and fatigue. At work, I noticed it was harder to hear in the noisy ER. I really brushed it off as nothing until I mixed up some words in a trauma and a resident wondered about my hearing. Fast forward, and a hearing test showed that I had enough hearing loss that warranted a visit to an ENT, neurophysiologist, and an MRI. Prednisone helped improve my hearing loss a bit, but every time I tapered it or stopped, the hearing loss would worsen. The neurophysiologist didn’t take long to discover I had bilateral vestibular loss, which means the labyrinth part of the inner ear responsible for balance was no longer working on either side - a story for another day.😉 I eventually bit the bullet and got hearing aids, but the hearing loss didn’t stop there and within 5 months I had lost all the remaining hearing in the left ear and had a significant drop in the right. Prednisone pills and dexamthasone injections into the ear drum seemed to slow things down, but each time I lowered the amount, the hearing loss would worsen in my right ear. My hearing has worsened to the point where I have to lipread. I can’t hear speech clearly in quiet environments, even with the use of an ultra powered hearing aid that I am trialing now for the ENT. I’m currently waiting for a cochlear implant appointment and really hope that this is a viable solution for me, my family, and my career! 💙
It’s that time again! If there’s 3 oils I don’t want to be without on my cycle, it’s these right here!!!! Not only are they supportive for female hormones, but these oils help support all of the painful emotions we deal with during this time. #sharkweek In all seriousness, I struggle with severe PMS. I’m on edge, impulsive, and my mood can swing so easily. It’s not fun. Since using essential oils and cleaning up my diet, I’ve been able to support and decrease the severity of every physical and emotional symptom associated with this time of month. It truly is a game changer! The florals Jasmine, Rose, Neroli, and now MAGNOLIA are SOOOO good for emotional support during that time of month! They also happened to make incredible natural perfume!!! Clarycalm is one I use on my abdomen daily, especially during the 1st 2 days of my cycle! I ❤️ these 3 above! Rub on wrists as needed throughout your day! The BEST girl support ever!
Anyone else have an oil protocol for you cycle? Would love to hear! 👇

Boa noite a todos 😘 #Repost@maeforadacaixa with @get_repost
A gente escolhe ser mãe, mas antes da maternidade chegar nenhuma de nós tinha noção da grandiosidade dessa escolha mesmo tendo pessoas próximas passando por essa experiência.
Desejamos ser mães mas não fazemos idéia do que significa ter um filho até ter um nos braços.
Fico tentando lembrar se alguém me falou sobre o quanto essa escolha é divisor de águas na vida de uma mulher. Mas a resposta é não. Ninguém fala sobre a transformação, sobre o encontro com nós mesmas que chega a doer. Abala a nossa estrutura. Remexe lá no fundo.
As pessoas falam do superficial do sonho cor de rosa que na prática quase nunca vem de encontro com a nossa realidade.
Muito se fala em plenitude e pouco se fala no desassossego que gera ter um ser que depende da gente.
Muito se fala em serenidade e pouco se fala sobre o quanto é difícil termos que lidar com o imprevisível.
Muito se fala em sensação de paz e pouco se fala em como as coisas saem do nosso controle.
Muito se fala sobre se sentir completa e pouco se fala o quanto sentimos uma solidão ímpar por tempo indeterminado.
Sim é solitário, imprevisível e zero sossego mas é o mais profundo passeio dentro de nós mesmas. É terapia diária!
