My life goes something like this, I’ve taken many detours, and often hit the reset button on my life. A serious glitch in my life and my finger goes down on that reset button.
With no hesitations at all I take these signals as God reminding me to do the necessary, take precautions, apply what you’ve learned. Right now the major glitch is my health both mentally and physically.
I’ve been transparent with my health issues since discovering my diagnosis and to be quite honest it’s nagging, annoying and scary at times. It’s become the forefront of my life in regards to how will I get through this? Will I live to see this and that? Will it get worse? These are the questions that hold me up at night sometimes.
In all of this, a change in my lifestyle had to happen quickly! I yearn to see healing on the other side of all of this, my faith in complete healing has been a quest. Not that God hasn’t given me good days, He totally has given me more grace than I can ever give myself. I can’t give what God gives to me He’s awesome.
But there’s work on my end to do and that starts with the care I give unto myself. Example; the foods I eat. I’m a foodie at heart! I love to explore the wide world of culinary.
Lately I’ve been urged to cut meats out of my diet and to be honest that’s not that hard for me to do. Sugar and breads on the other hand will be the challenge lol!
Moderation is key
I’m a firm believer in moderation, so to say I’ll never have a croissant or a slice of cake would be lying to myself! Going on a meatless journey is one I’ve visited often in my life, it’s as if my body has this timer set every year to go meatless. I’ve decided to go all the way this time.
I’m eager to see how my body responds to the consistency of staying meatless. My desire is to get off of two medications permanently. As I stated this is a quest I’m on to heal mentally and physically. Autoimmune disorders and sickness messes with your mental heavy! Coping with it on a daily basis, watching your body physically change is frustrating and depressing.
Sickness not only effects you, but those around you who love and care for you. You begin to feel guilty, and mask your pain out of fear of looking like a punk, or a nag. It’s exhausting to say the least.
I’ve come to terms with it all I’m going to live a healthy life, I am healed! And my lifestyle will inspire other warriors out there to fight and advocate for their health. One day at a time, one meal at a time.
