This post is different; it’s not about natural health, but in a way it is. It’s about my experience with Father’s Day and how fifty plus years of this “holiday” keeps breaking my heart. Can a lifetime of longing, dreaming, and wanting cause someone to be unhealthy? I believe it can, because a life long dream of mine turned into a broken heart 💔 and therefore more depression, anxiety, and pain both physical and emotional. This is the hardest thing I have ever written, at least so far. Why am I writing it then? To give my readers insight into who I am, why I do what I do, and most of all hope; hope of healing, relief, and freedom from the pain and the dreams that will probably never come true and my struggle to be okay with that.
As I write this tears streaming down my cheeks, I feel the weight lifting from my chest, the air a little easier filling my lungs, and the pain deep in my soul getting a little easier to bear. I can’t say I wasn’t warned that to go on this journey, was to take the chance that my heart might be more broken than it already was, but I had to know. Know what you may be asking; to know the truth, which now I’m beginning to expect that the whole truth is something I may never know, but I know more now than I did and I have the hope that one day I will know more.

It takes three minutes for your adrenal glands to fill your body with the adrenaline response. It also only takes three minutes for your body to stop the adrenaline reaction. If you stop a panic attack as soon as it starts, the reaction only has to last for three minutes.

Nutrition is an important part of a healthy lifestyle and it is of even greater importance to those who are fighting disease.

Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety.
The way you feel while you’re awake depends in part on what happens while you’re sleeping. During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development.
The damage from sleep deficiency can occur in an instant (like a car crash), or it can harm you over time. For example, ongoing sleep deficiency can raise your risk for some chronic health problems. It also can affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others.

Surviving Chronic Illness
Recumbent bike and Vibration Platform
There are many ways to survive chronic illness this is the rest of my mst haves list. I can’t stress how important exercise is! I know, I know! You hear this from your doctors every time you see them, I do too. Just last week I’m was in the Rheumatologist office and he said to lose the weight you want to lose riding a recumbent bike isn’t enough. Now I’ve studied and taught Nutrition and weight loss for almost 30 years and I know what it takes. I also know what I my body is capable of. The Rheumatologist actually said to me, ”You have to do pool exercise at the YMCA five days a week. I know it will take about 4 hours a day, but you don’t have a job!” What the heck! I do have a job, several to be specific! But I guess taking care of myself, running this business because it’s home-based, taking care of my family, and writing a book doesn’t count! Ugh!!! I know exercise is hard, but I promise if you start slow and build up it will help and it will make you feel better. I ordered a recumbent and Hurdle Vibration Platform from Amazon and I started with 5 minutes on each. I was more sore and tired at first, but I kept at it. At first, I did 3 days a week then added a day, then up to five days a week. Once I got up to 5 days a week I started adding a couple minutes to each until I was up to 30 minutes on the recumbent bike and 20 minutes on the vibration platform. It’s easier because I’m home if I have a bad day I don’t exercise that day and add a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. The Vibration platform loosens up my muscles, helps with circulation, and helps with lymphatic fluid circulation. Give it a try, I promise it will be worth it!! Surviving Chronic Illness (Part 1)
