Why is this happening to ME?
Have you ever wondered, why is this happening to ME?
Why is it that my neighbor can eat fast food all day long and smoke cigarettes and still seem healthy and vital?
I used to think about this all the time when I was suffering with symptoms that were really getting in the way of life...
...actually, if I'm being honest, I still think about this...a lot.
Now though, I'm noticing that these "lucky people" are possibly the "unlucky ones".
I have a close friend who has lived a life of eating and drinking whatever he wanted and had no outward symptoms, with the exception of a big belly (which he didn't have any intention of trying to get rid of).
He's in his early 40's and now his health is beginning to fail. Not really falling apart, but his high cholesterol and high blood sugar is certainly beginning to catch up with him, and medication is the only option he considers....sad.
I was someone who had symptoms early on and refused to go the medical route of immune suppressive drugs and medical procedures. I was serious about
getting better and stopped at nothing to recover from my autoimmune disease.
I live a clean life and my blood work is better than ever. It does kind of stink not eating that piece of cake at a wedding or drinking an ice cold Stella Artois in the sunshine while playing horseshoes...but it's worth it.
It's worth it that my kids see a healthy, vibrant dad who has overcome a lot and has actually done the "impossible". They see that diet does matter and conventional, traditional medicine does not have all the answers....unfortunately, they have very few.
So stay strong, avoid that gluten and other immune irritants and pray for those "lucky ones" with no symptoms, too many of those people will be the chronically ill of tomorrow.
