Hello my friends!
Thank you for all your support and kind words yesterday. Today was a better day.
I felt relief that I could just experience my emotions yesterday and feel what I was feeling.
Sometimes being able to just feel it, helps.
Part of my mood had to do with Maddox and his Migraines.
After his last one, which was different from previous ones, I took him again to the pediatrician.
After a year and a half on the waiting list to see a pediatric neurologist, we will finally have an appointment on May 29th… the first available… (don’t get me started on that!)
They are thinking now that we may not even be dealing with Migraines (believe it or not) and instead, an epileptic syndrome (with a good prognosis, thank goodness).
I have been chasing the cure to Migraines for years, about 3 and a half years.
To find out that there might have been nothing that I could have done, makes me so conflicted. Not that changing your entire dietary program is not worth something, I guess…
I have spent about a week being devastated, sad, upset, angry, frustrated and so many other emotions on the roller coaster and now I am ready to try to put a positive spin on it.
I found my passion through this process. I found that I love holistic nutrition and I want to share it with others. I want to inspire others with my story as a mom, woman, and wife.
What began as me doing everything I could think of to heal my son ( and then heal my husband), blossomed into a journey that is just beginning for me personally.
I have formalized my education and drawn a path toward working with others as a Nutritional Therapist, all because I did what I believed was best for my family.
I suppose once we come out of the depths of our negative emotion, we can find a light shining in…
Namaste. ( that’s my attempt at Zen balance… how did I do?)
Have you been in a negative situation that has helped you find your passion and purpose?
