What I had been taught both directly and indirectly was leaving me in constant pain. I regularly contended with brain fog, fatigue, migraines, recurrent infections, joint pain, heart issues, and more. Less able to live out my purposes or serve others as I was bogged down and sometimes crippled with illness. The prescribed treatments made me weaker over time.
Eventually I got an infection that left me in danger of losing my life. Even then, I was left with the same recommendations and never addressing what lead to me feeling so sick to begin with.
I had to become a better advocate for myself. What I had to unlearn and then learn on my own has given me new life and I can’t help but share it in the hope that it might help someone else.
I share here what has been helpful for me just in case any part of it might be helpful for you or anyone who joins us here. I so hope my pain and suffering will be used to help prevent someone else from experiencing unnecessary suffering. I hope it will help someone feel less alone. I pray it will encourage many. I know it was not meaningless. It has taught me so much. It has connected me to YOU. I am so grateful. And now I’m crying. I love you. Thank you for being here.
