This is me on a good day. Just like everyone else, I have bad days too. My body is allergic to stress. I’ve been living with EBV (Epstein Barr virus), chronic fatigue syndrome & depression since I was a teenager. It’s debilitating & knocks me down for days. I’ve been sick since Monday. Crying, anxiety, & restlessness turns into swollen lymph nodes, painful sore throat, fatigue & fever. It’s crazy how my body turns emotional pain into physical pain almost instantly. Because of this I have an increased risk for developing cancer & diseases. Over the past few years it’s gotten worse, & as a result I’ve had to distance myself from situations that used to cause me prolonged, unnecessary stress. I try not to stress out about getting stressed out, so I don’t get sick.
About a year ago I discovered @medicalmedium
by others on IG who shared their stories. Although I haven’t been super strict with it, I have implemented food, supplements & lifestyle changes outlined in this book & have definitely seen results. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten sick. For anyone battling an ongoing illness, or simply looking to live a healthier life, I highly recommend his books! And for anyone who also suffers with any of these issues I’m here if you’re looking for someone to relate to.
