|My 44th birthday|
|2 days later|
I was desperate for my life back. The anxiety of learning I had a blood clotting disorder sent me to the doctor one last time. I did not get to see my usual doctor I had seen for 18 years. I "had" to see a new doctor I had never seen before. I really dreaded it. I didn't want to have to go through my life's history again. I almost cancelled that day but am so glad I didn't. God had already made that appointment for me.....He knew I needed to hear this doctor say very simple words to me. "You need to take charge of your own health". Instead of continuing to put my health in doctor after doctor, I needed to get to the root of the problem. I needed a different perspective. I left the doctor's office with a new sense of hope that I did not have to be like this. I could and would get better.
I contacted my friend Deborah Kirby who had been giving talks on "health issues". She had asked me to attend several times but I was always too tired to go. She came to my house this time and spent two hours teaching me about the root of my illness.
I know it sounds crazy, but she had hit the nail on the head! All my fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, arthritis, weight gain, depression.....everything was due to an overgrowth of yeast in my body. I had to get the yeast out in order to get well.
So, this started my journey to "fight the fungus" and get my life back. The first part is literally is a series of face book posts and emails before my journey began compiled together. Then I move on to when the real journey began.
My blog will hopefully help others who have suffered and have not gotten to the real root of their illness. My prayer is that the stories and information on here will "make sense" to those in pain or suffering illnesses that have seem to have baffled doctors.
