I’ve been struggling with health issues for a while.
Some subtle, little things here and there, which I have chosen to ignore… and some more obvious signs.
Extreme exhaustion, even when working out- running, cardio, yoga, nothin’. I could curl up and go to sleep right now just typing this.
Gastrointestinal issues- gas, constant heartburn (like: “affect your quality of life, I feel like there’s a match lit in my throat and I can’t really swallow so I’ll just not eat” heartburn).
Fluctuating appetite- either “I can eat a whole cow right now” hungry or “meh, not so much” hungry.
To name a few…
And I’ve always been told by doctors that it’s no big deal: “I checked your blood, scanned your organs and I got nothin’.” Or “here take this pill for the nausea, this pill for the reflux, lemme know when you need a refill.”
It’s exhausting, y’all. It’s hard to not fully have the quality of life that you want because your body is doing things that you’d rather it not do.
It’s frustrating because I run. I do yoga. I do kickboxing, dance workouts and what-ever-else-I-find-on-YouTube-that-I-can-do-in-my-living-room.
I DO IT.
So. I’m on a mission to fix my body. To get it to the place that it is supposed to be in. In the past 3 weeks I have seen a chiropractor and a nutritionist. Next up? A homeopathic doctor and a Gastroenterologist for good measure (I need to make sure I haven’t damaged my esophagus by waiting so long to get a scope down my throat to see how the reflux has affected it).
I might get all “new age” and “hippie” on y’all in a minute, but I need to find a more natural path to restoration.
I’m continuing on my journey to fix me. Not just mentally, but physically as well.
