Obtaining New Levels of Health

Those of you who know me, know that I am in an upswing with the illnesses I have (lupus, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, gastroparesis and bipolar disorder). Whew, is that as overwhelming to read as it was to type? Imagine living with all of this. However, I have great doctors who have done things to help me balance and manage these illnesses.

The one thing that I have done (and it made a significant difference) was to quit working. I closed the support group in February. That was a hard step to take, but I became healthier without the stress. We did still have our cannabis business and I was customer liaison and had just become the head grower when we made the decision to close that down. However, once we did, I gained another level of health.

I have continued to do fairly well despite we sold our house, we are living out of hotels and waiting for our new house in Lincoln City, Oregon to close.

Thought I would write this as a quick update and will write more on different aspects of these changes in the coming weeks.

    It is amazing how the stress of work can impact our conditions. Then add the fact that reaching menopause almost eliminates the hormonal swings women experience and it gets even better. I am glad you are finding a level of health Tamara. Being functional and content is a good place to live.

      Thank you, Joanne. I agree that getting older and through menopause helps settle things down. I have to say that menopause was a cinch for me. I feel that I was blessed because I had paid my dues in the pain arena. LOL
