Who are you when your world turns upside down?

Who are you when your world turns upside down?

When you first get your diagnosed everything you thought you knew changes. The life you led will never be the same again. The relationships you have will change. How you look at the world all of it changes and it has to whether we want it to or not. 

Why many people would ask? And the truth is because you have to change. You have to learn to make yourself a priority in your own life. You have to learn to speak-up and stand-up for yourself. You have to learn to listen to your body. You have to learn what to feed your body that is healthy and not harmful to it. And, you have to learn how to heal your body as well as your mind.

No one else can do this for you. No one else can carry this for you. No one else will suffer the pain of a simple mistake. No one else will live their life constantly on guard. No one will understand truly why you always have to plan ahead. No one else can help when your body goes all haywire because you’ve been glutened and days later your still so exhausted that showering is a major event. No one else will be able to prepare your meals without you watching over them like a hawk because one wrong little thing can effect you for weeks. No one can understand the mental anguish that goes with this. No one can take this way for you.

Hope all of you have had a wonderful Holiday and great New Years. 

2015 was an incredible and a rough year for me. Some of my high’s were writing a book, going to NYC and having a book launch party in Whole Foods Lincoln Center, becoming a Certified Gluten Practitioner with Dr. Tom O’Bryan and finally meeting the man who truly changed the state of my health. Some of my low’s were dealing with several additional complications with my health, my Mom has had some health challenges too this year and making some tough decisions to end a relationship with a man who I will always love. 

As 2016 begins, I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes from Oprah, “Cheers to another year, to get it right!” My question is what does right look like to you? And how will you know if you finally get there?
