Sick and Tired and needing to get healthier

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Today is Christmas and I surprisingly was able to tell my family what I wanted for gifts this year. I usually put everyone else above myself and I have been unable to come up with ideas for gifts when people ask me what they can get me. I literally can't think of anything that I want or need and my family winds up getting me gift cards which I wind up spending on others. My family gets upset with me and is hurt by my inability to let them treat me. This year I was able to come up with a nice little list of items I wanted, and on that list was a Nutri-bullet.

I realize that I am very ill, constantly gaining weight, and getting worse by the day. I recently learned that I have Immune Deficiency Syndrome, which means that I can't fight off infections, viruses or other illnesses, it also means that I have a much higher chance of getting cancer. Until I become very ill from the IDS my insurance company refuses to pay for the transfusions that could help me to feel better, but I can't afford to pay the extra $1,000.00 per month for the treatments.

I have realized for a long time that I have never eaten well and I don't get enough fruits or vegetables in my diet. My daughter is always bringing home fresh vegetables but they usually wind up being thrown out because we just don't eat them. I decided that I need to find a way to use those vegetables instead of throwing them out, and I need to find a way to get that nutrition into my body. My sweet husband actually made sure that he bought everything on my wish list including the Nutri-bullet.

I get to open my gifts today and am already trying to find recipes and foods that I can use beginning today. I realize that my best bet at attaining my goals and sticking to my plans is to come back to Spark People and utilize the tools that are here for all of us free of charge. Wish me Well and Merry Christmas to everyone.

    The body given the right chances can cure itself of the most devastating illnesses. You took a step in the right direction with the Nutri Bullet.

    I'd recommend adding as many greens as possible and stop eating refined items as best you can.

    Have you ever heard of oil pulling? Look it up on Youtube. I use organic coconut oil which is very inexpensive at Costco. It's absolutely mind blowing what this can do for various situations going on in the body.
