Have you worried about having the right insurance,
what doctors are in your plan and how much it is
going to cost you? My struggle with IBS, incapacitating
pain and numbness, and chronic fatigue had me asking
all of those questions.
Every doctor or emergency room visit ended with the
same statement, “you’re the healthiest patient we’ve seen
today!” and a big bill. What!? No guidance, no solution…nothing?
Recommendations were made for neck surgery and
gallbladder removal but my gut told me those were not
the answers for me. It seemed like no one was listening
to the details of what I was actually experiencing and
since there was no ‘quick fix’remedy for my ailment, I am healthy?

Stress can be the beginning of many conditions.
The first step to alleviating stress is self-care.
Self-care is not selfish. When you are on an airplane,
one of the first things you are told is, “in case of an emergency
put your oxygen mask on first so you are able to help others”.
Shouldn’t we practice this every day?
Daily stress doesn’t have to be a routine. Start making
“ME” Monday, your Monday.

If you could do something for yourself right now that
you are not doing, what would that be…?
