Mourning Your Life Before Autoimmune Disease

Mourning Your Life Before Autoimmune Disease

? ???? ???? ?? ??? ???? ????,”⁣



I remember thinking as I ugly cried in the fetal position in my closet so my kids couldn’t hear me.⁣



I felt devastated,⁣



heartbroken,⁣



and no longer recognized my life.⁣



I was mourning.⁣



And I let myself mourn.⁣



I needed time and space to wrap my head around my chronic illness.⁣



Then, after my diagnosis, I needed time and space to wrap my head about the fact that my disease is lifelong and incurable.⁣



At that point, I did not know that I’d be able to find relief through nutrition and lifestyle.⁣



I just knew I wanted ?? back.⁣



So…I got to work.⁣



Slowly and ungracefully, I changed my nutrition and lifestyle habits, and worked on my mindset.⁣



A funny thing happened.⁣



I didn’t get my old life back.⁣



I got something even better.⁣



A new life more beautiful than I thought possible when I was at my worst.⁣



And I am so thankful…⁣



thankful for the opportunity to learn, grow, and become a better version of myself.⁣



You see, I realized the secret about heartbreak and autoimmune disease….⁣



each holds an opportunity.⁣



An opportunity for us to…⁣



learn,⁣



grow,⁣



love deeper,⁣



and become stronger.⁣



But here’s the kicker…⁣



It’s up to ?? to grab that opportunity and run with it.⁣



Nobody is going to do it for us.⁣



It’s up to us.⁣



?? get to decide if we want to brush that opportunity aside and blame it for ruining our lives…⁣



or if we see the opportunity as a new chapter in the story of our lives.⁣



I’ve done both.⁣



The first got me nowhere I want to be again.⁣



The second?⁣



Well, it got me here…⁣



rebuilding my life into something more beautiful than I thought possible.⁣

Sending you loads of love and support!
