I received a text from CVS telling me two of my prescriptions are ready to be picked up. I go on the CVS app and almost faint when I see how much those medications cost!!! This is ridiculous. I miss the days before 2008 where my monthly contributions to my insurance policy actually paid for things and didn’t put my family into the poor house. I never had a deductible and they paid a lot more of the services. I pay so much it medical every year it is disheartening. I am trying so hard to get my health back on track so I don’t have to take these medications but in the mean time I need them in order to live.
I have really been listening to my body and what my blood sugars are so I can continue on getting healthier and losing weight. I am down 50 pounds so far woo hoo! There is something I have noticed this time of me losing weight……my breasts have shrunk. I know that happens to a lot of people but it hasn’t ever before. This time around I have totally changed my eating lifestyle, I have been vegetarian for almost 2 years however, since being diagnosed with diabetes I have gone more Whole Food Plant Based. Could it be that not having the meat in my body has cleared it of bad hormones? You figure so many of the animals are genetically modified to grow faster and they are fed a lot of soy. If I look at how many women 20 years ago weren’t as big breasted as they are (without surgery that is) now. My stomach is also going down quicker than in the past and I feel amazing compared to, well ever. I look back to even when I was 16 and I struggled with fatigue and feeling blah. Now if only my family would listen and try being healthier.
I have also been trying to get outside to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. I will sit in the sun for like 15 minutes later in the day when the sun rays aren’t too harsh. I absolutely love the way I feel when I am around nature. I feel like we all need to get back to being outside and doing things to connect us to the earth. I love walking around barefoot on the grass or sitting on the ground. Now if I can get some indoor plants to help cleanse the air. I have cats that will try eating them and I don’t want the plants hurt nor the cats. I have to figure out how to hang them with the tall ceilings I have.
I have been reading Sadhguru’s book Inner Engineering and it is really making me take a look at myself. He says, “once you take charge of your inner life, there is no such things as stress”. HUH a life with no stress? I have listened to many videos of him saying it always confuses him that the United States talks about stress management, like why are you giving this time and energy? Interesting to say the least. Did you know there is substantial medical and scientific evidence to prove that in a state of anger, you are literally poisoning your system? When you are angry, your very chemistry is altered, and your system turns toxic (immediately remember suffering from adrenal fatigue for 15 years) and that intense activity and sleep are times when this chemical mess can undo itself. OK, got it so now how can I stop this and do better? Any ideas?
Be blessed my friends
