For about a year, I floundered around, and fixed myself up a bit.
Then I had an opportunity to turn my love life from a constantly ill-fitting mess to something amazing. I grabbed at it, and held on. Especially when letting go would have been easier. We hung in there for four years, then we blossomed into a most wonderful garden of love and support.
Meanwhile, my career was gnawing at my bones, eating my health, creativity, and vitality from the inside out. I fought and pounded against it for three long years. Then the perfect graduate program came along at the perfect time. Two more years rushed by, crammed with job-work and school-work. But now I've graduated to a new career that brings me satisfaction and joy.
After nine years of constant yanking and pushing at my life to get it where I want to be, I am exhausted. This is my last puzzle piece: to end being overweight, having no energy, suffering mild depression, fighting IBS, and having food cravings.
The plan: Working with an integrative medicine doctor.
I just bought the book today. I will read it and formulate a plan and follow it. And I will report on the results of these endeavors here.
