Revisiting my lost blog

Posted in Uncategorized on March 1, 2011 by icangel

I had completely forgotten about this blog until my e-mail alerted me to a new comment. So much has changed in the past few years. And while all the information I’ve posted has it’s place, I made a decision to turn away from western medicine and added a more Eastern approach to my daily life. I became so fed up with this one sided view of how the body works from the perspective that the physical is just the physical. Nothing any doctor offered me fixed the problem to my standards. I thought…there must be something more out there. This can’t be it?? It wasn’t.

I’ve always relied on both eastern and western points of view but deciding to journey away from our medical system and turn fully twords an eastern approach has changed my life for the better. No more daily medications. I do sometimes use a sleep aid as having to get up numerous times a night to use the bathroom gets exhausting, but the pains not there. There are days when I don’t feel as well as others. I still get tired, and if I eat something that’s a big no-no like hot sauce there can be some pain…but I’ve learned how to feel it differently.

More to come as I have to get ready for work. Yes…work. Work that involves constant physical labor. I never thought I’d be able to work like this again. I’ve taken back my life. I refuse to let my bladder rule my day. I’ve had to start over from the beginning but I’d rather be at a more healthy, pain free beginning than stuck in a cycle of suffering I can’t control.
