Dear readers, all of us know the ups and downs that go on when you live with a chronic illness like Myasthenia Gravis. Our disability comes and goes like waves that hit the beach any given day. Some days rough, and others, subtle and gentle.
What makes it even more difficult is that we have what is known as an invisible disease. I am sure that most of us at one point or the other have heard, “you look really great”, even when we are trying to make a point of how bad we are feeling because we are going through a flare.
So I set myself on a mission!
I re-embarked myself on a journey of wellness.
Not an easy one by no matters because I find myself constantly battling with toxicity in every corner of my world. I would like to stress out the word re-embark because when I began this blog it was precisely about experiencing wellness and becoming fit not necessarily in a body building way, but in a mind-body way.
What probably went wrong was that I didn’t have the tools to reach within myself to achieve my pursuit of wellness and healing.
Precisely this blog was about recording my experiences and trying to inspire others along the way. Not only do I want to experience wellness and healing on a personal level, but I want others as well to be able to achieve the same thing.
It’s been a while since I’ve began to make small changes in my life that have had amazing results. To an extent, that I was able to detour a Gamma treatment for now. I don’t know if I’ll have to go through one later on during the year, but for the present moment I’m just grateful I didn’t go to the hospital in the present moment.
I’ve come to learn and still am, by the way, is that we are more than our bodies. We can already have a disseminated illness, to a sense irreversible, however we can still control many of the things that go on with us. WE CAN NOT BE WELL IF WE DO NOT GO THROUGH A PROCESS OF HEALING not only our bodies, but our souls or minds.
This initial post is about just coming upon the realization that we have the power within ourselves to reach in and move forward. MG is not stronger than our body-mind connections.
I will forever be grateful for stumbling on Fear from Thich Nhat Hanh and the groundbreaking work of Dr. Deepak Chopra.
Connect with you soon. Hasta pronto!
