The main thing holding me back right now from getting to the next step in healing #leakygut#hashimotos etc etc is stress. my functional doctor keeps upping my supplements and testing my cortisol levels but they won’t move. .
after seeing my md this week (the hoops i have to go through to get an mds attention is beyond...) i found out that my antibody levels and tsh are so high and my b12 is super low. no wonder why i’ve been exhausted... .
when i think about where i can create space for myself i’m at a loss. 1. i like everything i’m doing 2. i’m not sure when i can sneak in time for just me. things i’m trying to do... eat lunch outside without my phone and open the window in my office. oh and i’m also being picky with what i say yes to. any other tips? .
i definitely need to get back to reading before bed again. the past two weeks through me off. would love to hear ideas please take in mind time is limited. and if you’ve dealt with this in the past lmk too. it’s always nice to hear from “the other side”
Finally (after having my own kids) i’ve allowed my mom to say she loves me more. but i always say ok but not by much! since she always throws it back at midnight on our birthdays...and i’m hoping i’m not awake that late... enjoy my bff (friendship was allowed when i turned 18) and mom age 28-30 with me. i’ll let you do the math. love you @lorrigill thanks for being my #rideordiechick
Gut healing & dealing with an autoimmune disease has been at the forefront of my mind and my to-do list for the past few months.
i’m working with a functional doctor which has been the biggest gift i’ve given myself but it’s also come with a lot of food restrictions, many of which i was not expecting. ~
i get asked a lot, how do you stick to it? how do you find the time to cook? to manage your meds? etc etc. i don’t mind these questions at all. i would ask them to...the trick is switching my mindset...
early on i decided i needed to detach food from fun. food can be fun but that’s not the purpose it’s to sustain you. i also decided everything that’s worthwhile is hard f*****g work. successful biz? hard work. raising nice children? hard work. creating a better community? hard. work. why is this different? i was dealt with this and i’m going to put in the work to feel better. i remind myself that everyday i put in the work is a day closer to feeling better. ~
today was tough. i have to limit my food in a different way again. i have to go on another medicine and had to drive 40 min each way to get it. but i keep going back to how i will feel in 6mo-1year (please be 6mo!)
if you’re dealing with something tough, remember to put in the work because it will always be worth it in the end.
