Sounds kinda funny doesn’t it?
Do you know what I’m referring to?
I didn’t think so…
Toss the prescription script and find the answer.
That’s right- for almost six years of my life doctors handed me prescription scripts for everything from water pills (to help with my leg swelling) to steroids (for my myocitis in my leg muscles).
It was a nightmare.
A true living nightmare.
My general practitioner even told my sister that I was crazy last November and said I needed ‘meds’.
I ripped up the script right in his face and never filled it.
Why would I?
To put a band-aid on my ailments?
To mask the problems I was facing?
A year ago next week I had my 5th colonoscopy and endoscopy and they wanted me to go on medicine for ‘IBS’.
Nope; I didn’t budge.
I just ripped up the scripts and kept fighting.
I’m a fighter.
And a believer.
I believe everything happens for a reason.
It’s a common phrase- but it truly means a lot when you think about it.
So, I pulled up my big girl pants- said bye bye to the crazy doctors and started yoga.
And then came along my quest to integrative medicine.
And just like that….
My legs stopped swelling, my mercury fillings came out, I went through chelation (still going strong) and detoxed my life, my apartment, my body and my mind.
And look at me now.
This is the first spring in six years that I can wear a skirt without having 20-30 lbs. of water weight in my legs…this is the first spring I don’t wake up 3 times a night having to change my clothes and sheets due to pools of sweat, this is the first spring that my bones don’t ache like a 90 year old woman.
This is the first spring I’m livin’ in six years.
And boy o’ boy does it feel good.
Here’s what I’m snackin’ on right now. So sweet and o’ so good.
