I Took a Fall – I’m OK and It Got Me to Thinking – FB Live Video

I hope you are having a wonderful autumn/spring!  The other morning, I was out walking my dog on her 20-foot-long trail leash and it was still fairly dark.  There are no sidewalks in my neighborhood and there was a car parked on the street, so I had to walk in the grass to get around it.  One wrong step, and before I knew it, down I went!  I was ok,I Took A Fall  I Took a Fall – I’m OK and It Got Me to Thinking - FB Live Video Leah and Annie on the trail and, to my dog’s credit, she did walk back to check on me before resuming her walk.

(This is a picture from this summer of me and Annie with her trail leash, on a trail that had an osage orange tree tunnel.)

This event got me to thinking – ten years ago I would have never been out on a walk at 5:45 am, I would have never even had an athletic dog, and a fall, well, let’s just say it would ruin my day, if not the next two weeks. How my reality has changed! Because of my recovery, I’m not only able to be so active with my dog, but, because of the martial arts training I have been doing to “receive” the ground, I just rolled right out of it! I amazed myself! 

I am writing to you about this to give you hope: recovery is not only possible – it’s within reach!  I have actually been talking to people all over who have recovered, not only with my method but others as well.  This week I will be doing a FaceBook Live video about “The Ways People Are Recovering from Fibromyalgia” on the free support group, Freedom from Fibromyalgia: Fibro Natural Recovery Support.  It will air live at 2:00 pm Eastern Time on Wednesday, October 11th.

To join in, just request approval to the group, and once you’ve been approved go to the Files section to get your free MP3 of my guided meditation recording “Optimal Health,” which I sell on my website every day for $19.95.  If you can’t make it live, no worries, as it will stay up in the recordings.

We are having a lot of fun in this group, and sharing a lot of tips and useful info too!  Not only can I not wait to see you there, but I can’t wait to hear about YOUR recovery story!!

Yours in joy and health,

Leah

Cope with Fibromyalgia?

How to Cope with Fibromyalgia – NOT!

How did Leah cope with Fibromyalgia cope with fibromyalgia Cope with Fibromyalgia? BeforeI don’t write a lot about coping with the symptoms of fibromyalgia for one main reason – I sucked at it!  I did not “cope” very well at all.  My life was a shambles, my pain was out-of-control, I couldn’t work, I could barely care for myself, and I was so miserable I didn’t want to live anymore.  I felt a prisoner in my own body.  Sound familiar?

I was just living a life of quiet (and sometimes not-so-quiet) desperation.  I couldn’t see a way out.  Now I know a way out, that has not only worked for me but others as well.  I compare it to being lost in the woods:  someone found a path out and led me out.  I have now gone back to help others get out.  

I don’t write about coping not only because I did not do it very well, but because I feel it’s a waste of time when I can tell you about recovering.  Yes, you need strategies to help you in the here and now, but you can find them all over the internet.  What is more unique are strategies for healing and recovery, so that is my focus.  

I want to help you recover your health so you can do whatever it is you want to do in life.  Maybe you want to lead people out of the woods too, or maybe you want to raise your children, finish school, or start a business.  Whatever it is, it will be nearly impossible if all you can do is “cope.”

You don’t need to feel like a prisoner in your own body.  For the last six years of my illness I was in bed 12-16 hours a day.  I felt stuck.  Don’t do like I did, get unstuck and take your life back.  

So if you are wondering how to cope with fibromyalgia, I invite you to follow my “roadmap” for recovery from the symptoms of fibromyalgia and its coexisting conditions.  You can read the first chapter of my book for free at http://unconventionaltraditional.com/my-story/ .  I would love to hear your thoughts about it.

If it feels right to you, then I invite you to take a look at one of the many resources I offer, including the upcoming 3D Fibro Healing TeleClass.  Our first class is free and it is on April 21st at 7pm EST.  To get information go to www.3DFibro.com/optin .

I look forward to hearing about your recovery and what you do once you take back your life!

Yours in joy and health,

Leah
