Wellness, Health and Hope

On facebook I have a page called Wellness, Health and Hope.  It came about as a result of a diagnosis.

A year ago, following an extremely stressful year, I became ill.  In looking back, my doctor and I believe I had this illness for quite awhile.  Sadly, it was never diagnosed, so damage had been done to my body.

With the help of a new doctor, (the one who correctly diagnosed the issue), and lots of research, I have begun the path to repairing what can be repaired, and maintaining so that more damage to my health does not occur.  It’s difficult, to say the least, and takes a level of discipline and planning ahead, that I have never had before.

I have become a blog, book, and website junkie.  Always looking for information that can help me along this path.  Fortunately for me, there are people who are walking this path, and the info they share is so helpful.  I am not sure I could do this alone.  I try to share the things that are most helpful, including recipes, on my facebook page.  I want help bring hope to those who are suffering, especially those who have yet to get the correct diagnosis.  I want to be that encouragement that tells them to not settle with the diagnosis that tells them they are “fine” and it’s (essentially) all in their head.  Nothing worse than knowing you are not well, and then being told you are crazy on top of all that.

I have one of many types of auto immune diseases.  I try not to speak to just my own, but to the common core elements to all of these illnesses.

Some of  issues that seems to be common throughout are being tired (..always tired), depression on some level, and inability to fight off colds and flus.  Since we are going into flu season I thought a good way to raise awareness to my facebook page, would be to do a giveaway.  If you can comment, and let me know what you would like to see on Wellness, Health and Hope, I will send you a bottle of Flu Bomb.  It is a mixture of DoTerra essential oils, and coconut oil, that when used correctly, can help you fight off all the nasty bugs that are going around.  It’s fabulous!  I plan on giving away 3 bottles total between this blog, my facebook page, and my Instagram.  Since I have never talked about my health issues on this blog (until today), your chances of winning are pretty good!

Have a beautiful, health filled weekend! flubomb

 

 

 

In talking to my daughter, my sister and to a few other friends about having the “blues”, (or dealing with depression, or even about having motivation, when all you want to do is procrastinate), I came across a few blogs that I sent out to them that I felt were note worthy.  Among them was one I had saved a few years ago, and I think it is time to share
