Have any of you felt like that? Laying in bed in the morning and before I even open my eyes and start my day, I am already exhausted. How is that possible? My body feels so heavy and I would swear that in the middle of the night someone either stacked a bunch of sandbags on top of me or stuck me with an IV and filled me full of concrete.
Now, start your day. Get UP! There are things to do, work to be done, children to give attention to, family members to love but nope you just can't. It is an uphill battle to drag yourself out of bed and get in the shower. Isn't a shower supposed to be refreshing? Why am I sweating and exhausted by just showering? That kind of defeats the purpose of getting clean when you are literally sweating just from washing your hair and shaving your legs. This was my life. Crazy isn't it?
Here are 3 things that I learned during my journey:
Never, ever, give up and settle with "this is my life". There are so many options out there these days to get help for whatever you are going through. Fight for your right to feel better. Fight for your strength back. Fight for a better life! I believe settling is not an option and I am a researcher so if you do not know where to start, message me. I would love to help you find a better quality of life. I am not promising that it is easy because it most definitely is NOT. However, the joy and peace that you will feel when you have the energy to play with your children, the strength to pack up the horse trailer and go to a horse show with your friends, or the drive to get out and do yard work with your husband is irreplaceable.
Trust your GUT. If your gut is telling you that something is wrong then it is right. If your doctors are telling you all of your test are "normal" and you are fine so go home but you know your body and you know that you used to be strong, you used to be motivated, you used to have energy, then you keep digging and do not back down. Always trust your gut and dive deeper into researching things on your own if you have to. We know our bodies. If you are a strong guy who is always working hard, or who is always active for long hours of the day and you are feeling sluggish and tired all of the time for no particular reason then look into it. don't just ignore the signs and your gut feeling of something is wrong because your ego doesn't want to admit it. I am not saying you have to be a physically fit and in shape person who all of a sudden feels weak, tired and unmotivated. I am talking about those of us that are living our lives, work hard, play hard, and are always go go go and one day you hit a brick wall and think to yourself I "used to be able to do this" or " I used to be able to do that" and you really can't think of a particular reason why and your doctor says you have been evaluated and all is normal. That nagging feeling in your gut saying no, I am sorry but this is not normal, LISTEN TO IT.
Have courage. Fight for your right to feel better. I can't say this enough. Yes it is scary. Yes there is the second guessing and the feeling of what if I fail or what if I am wrong. Be courageous and if you add never give up, trust your gut and have courage all together then there is hope for you to feel better! Be bold, try different things. Do not be afraid to try things out of the normal doctors and prescriptions song and dance. There ARE other ways and they are healthy and they are cleaner and they are non-addictive and they are wonderful. I was terrified. I was scared of judgement, criticism, people making fun of me, people de-friending me, etc. I have honestly had all of those feelings. I even felt like maybe my husband would look at me differently if I started going outside of what is normal. Guess what? All of those feelings are normal but are you going to allow them to take over or are you going to be courageous and try something new? If you are ready to try something new then message me NOW .
Never Give Up, Trust Your Gut, and have Courage!
I can help. Message me now.
