Hey y’all, some of you might be wondering how I’ve been on the health front. I think you’ll be pleased to learn that in the last few weeks, everything has turned around. Now in all fairness, it has been 6 GODDAMN MONTHS, but still! Even my trip to Pittsburgh in February was really hard and exhausting, so this is a very recent turn for the better.
For the entirety of March, I’ve woken naturally around 6:30 AM. At that time I do 17 - 30 minutes of yoga, meditate, then start my day. I’ve gotten the bulk of a new screenplay done, written blogs, and written musical songs. I can work for more than 3 hours straight. I can go out without having to use the bathroom every 15 minutes. I can have two beers without feeling like something very bad is about to happen. Essentially, things have 180ed for the better and I am happier than I’ve been in so long. I have my drive back, and my hope back, which is even more important.
Was this because I’ve reached the 1 month point after my last acupuncture visit? Or because I’ve had a few weeks of supplements recommended by a hormone balancing book (which, by the way, said that my hormones were unbalanced in literally every way)? It could also be that I’ve just reached a magical point in time where the side effects disappear. I think it’s likely a combination of A, B, and more. I no longer drink coffee, only tea (at least for now). I mindfully breathe every day, especially when anxiety threatens to loom its ugly head. Overall, my body is happy and healthy, which feels like a miracle after 6 months of straight shite. Is that how the Brits spell shite? Who knows.
Just writing this has solidified my good mood. Take care of yourselves, friends. Super-sickness can break your spirit, but striving to be balanced can heal it and more.
