This was the MOMENT 🔥❤️🔥 I met @katiehwillcox at Curvy Con in September of 2018 and as you can see by this video, I was so nervous and excited I could barely speak in full sentences! So you can imagine what an honor it was to sit down and interview Katie for #ThePointOfPainPodcast recently for a special episode. Click the link in my bio to hear from one of the most inspiring people I follow on the gram and someone who has gone from insta buddy to a sister IRL. We talk about all things in this episode including all the self-help guru bull sh*t that we both feel is so dangerous and how to be unapologetic about speaking your truth. Something she is constantly teaching me! I know you’re going to love it angels. Click that bio link and let me know what you think by leaving a review on Apple Podcasts, it makes such a difference. Love you!! 💗💗💗 #selflove #healthyisthenewskinny #podcast #bodypositive #bodylove #curvycon @healthyisthenewskinny
For all those who ask me what I eat for my psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, this is ALLOWED 😍 I’ve been following this ray of light @goodiesagainstthegrain for a few months now (thanks to one of my faves @veeshoney for sharing her!) and I just love her body-loving attitude and recipes that won’t make you flare up! Now everyones body is different, and I’m not a doctor, but her recipes are grain free, no refined sugars and will help you enjoy something sweet without hurting your beautiful body. This isn’t an add and I don’t even know her (hi 🙋🏽♀️ if you see this!) but I wanted to start sharing some of my favorite resources for all things chronic illness on here no matter where they’re from. Are you into that? Let me know below and I will share more. Love you so much sweet things! 💗💗💗 #selflove #againstthegrain #autoimmunedisease #healing #psoriasis #spoonie #love #happiness PS - click this image on her feed to get the delicious recipe 💗✨
When I set out to share my post with the pictures of me with psoriasis, this was my intention. I knew it would be painful for me to relive that trauma through those images. I had so many fears that people wouldn’t get it, be disgusted by my appearance or just wouldn’t care about something that meant so much to me. But I kept knowing that I needed to share them with you. The reason is because I am not unique in my suffering. As humans, we all have moments and sometimes even decades where we endure suffering on some level. So I shared my scars with you to remind you that when you’re in the middle of the wound and staring it straight in the face, unsure if you can move forward because of the amount of pain you are experiencing on a spiritual, physical or emotional level, you are not alone. You can get to the other side. You can endure the pain and survive. And not by some bull shit spiritual bypassing either. But by honoring it and truly allowing yourself to FEEL. I am humbled by all of your comments, emails and DM’s letting me know that after you saw my scars you felt less alone with yours. I love you all so dearly and thank you for being on this journey with me angels ✨💓🙏🏾 #selflove #chronicselflove #mindfulness #chronicillness #chronicpain #psoriasis #psoriaticarthritis #spoonie 📸: another gem from @racheldealto 😘 PS - I started The Point of Pain podcast for this exact reason too.

New Podcast Episode 💗💗💗 I remember the first time I met my dear friend @deepica about 5 years ago, we took this first picture that day. Her viral video had already accumulated millions of views and she was one of the first South Asian women I had ever seen that made me feel less alone as an Indian woman in many predominantly white spaces. Fast forward to now where I got to dive in to life since the day we met. It was amazing to sit down with Deepica for #thepointofpainpodcast and talk about how much has happened since then. When you click the link in my bio and hear our conversation you will get to listen in on two friends talking about everything from heartbreak, career challenges and dreams realized like when she launched @tinted. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this honest and vulnerable conversation. Happy listening my loves! 💓✨💗 #viral #deepicamutyala #deepica #selflove #livetinted #tinty #happiness #entrepreneur #podcast
**Trigger Warning** If you swipe left, you will see me when I was the absolute sickest I have ever been from psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. I have literally been locking these images up so that no one will see them, for the past 17 years since they were taken. But over this past year I felt that it was time I finally let them out and let them go. For the first episode of my podcast (linked in my bio) I shared the images and some of the deepest and darkest stories of my life. My hope is that in sharing all of this, people will feel less alone. People will know that they can face their pain. And people will have some hope, that no matter how bad it gets, you are strong enough to get through it. To put it in perspective, I lived like this for about 7 YEARS of my life and another 10 years with it being about 20% as thick but still everywhere. Honestly loves, I feel a bit numb right now as I write this to you. I’ve spent almost two decades of my life holding on to these images, hoping no one ever sees them because I’m afraid of what they might think of me. But, here we are. This is the most vulnerable thing I have ever done, but all of you make it possible for me to be brave. I love you. Hope you listen to the podcast and that it supports you ❤️🙏🏾✨ #thepointofpainpodcast #selflove #chronicselflove #mindfulness #mindfulness #chronicpain #psoriasis #spoonie
Major announcement over here loves!!! 🔥🙋🏽♀️💓 At the beginning of last year I started to push myself way out of my comfort zone and talk to people in my life and on the internet about things that truly mattered to me. About the PAIN that we are all experiencing in our lives but are often times completely unequipped to deal with. 💓💓💓 Whether it’s the pain of fighting for causes that seem never ending in their struggle, the pain of following a dream that seems impossible to manifest but is all that’s in your heart, the pain of heartbreak or of course the pain of dealing with the challenges our bodies go through. 💓💓💓 On my NEW PODCAST (linked in my bio!) we are going to explore ALL of this and so much more. My trailer episode is out now which you can listen to on all the places (once you click the link you can choose your streaming service of choice from my site) and SUBSCRIBE so you never miss an episode. 💓💓💓 A new episode drops every Sunday and this coming weekend we are launching two for you. The first one is sharing images from when I was the most sick that I have never shared publicly and going into intense truths of my life. And the second one is an interview with my soul sister @deepica where we lay it ALL out on the table. I can’t wait for you to experience this project that I have been pouring my heart and soul into for the last 6 months and I truly hope it supports you on your journey. LOVE YOU!! 💓🔥🙏🏾💓 #pointofpainpodcast #selflove #inspiration #healing #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicselflove #chopra #mindfulness
How to LOVE the skin you’re in no matter what the weight, how many patches of psoriasis you have (like all over your legs) or any other nonsense thing someone told you that is possibly wrong with you. 💓💓💓 Find something gorgeous to wear that fits well and makes you feel confident. Then remind yourself that we ALL have stuff we struggle with so while you can’t stop thinking about your lack of a thigh gap, the person next to you probably hadn’t noticed because she’s worrying about something on her body. 💓💓💓 Spend time with friends who get it and who can really show up for you! Someone who you can let know in advance that you’re a little nervous. Preferably someone who doesn’t take life too seriously and makes you laugh. Brave the moments of owning your body together! Whether it’s on the beach, at the spa or getting dressed up for a black tie event where you have no idea how you’re going to be able to rock opaque tights and a gown (story of my life with psoriasis!) 💓💓💓 Know that this new year also marks a new opportunity to love the shit out of your perfect body. To show her that she’s beautiful and that you know she’s constantly doing the best she can and showing up for you the most she knows how. It’s a new opportunity to realize, you are not your body. You are a beautiful and divinely crafted soul and we are all SO lucky that you’re here ❤️💓❤️ #chronicillness #spoonie #happiness #selflove #psoriasis #chronicillnessawareness
