I remember when I first got sick, I didn’t understand why it was happening. Why were my friends moving forward with their lives, but I was being held back? How could I just be faulty? What had I done wrong?
The truth is, I hadn’t done anything wrong, and it wasn’t my fault. Medical research and science always has to blame illnesses on us, whether “mental” or otherwise. We’re told our bodies are faulty and that they’re attacking themselves with autoimmune, or we’re told we’ve got bad genes. The industry has to blame us to protect itself, both because they don’t have real answers to why people are sick, and also because the true cause of disease (pathogens and chemical toxins) would point back to them.
I remember how it felt in my soul as someone in my early twenties, being told that I would have to accept a lesser life and that there was no cure. It was DEVASTATING. I remember walking out into the woods and crying and screaming and falling to my knees, and begging God for help! I remember the fear that I would be like that forever, and that I would never be able to experience the blessings I wanted in life.
The truth is, there are real reasons why people are sick. The truth is that healing is possible! I didn’t think I had it in me to go through what I went through, but I survived it, and I am now thriving! With the right information, we can move forward and heal, little by little, day by day. It still can be very challenging, but we overcome it! If we persist at it long enough, eventually things will change. They have to.
My heart goes out to you. Just know that it’s not your fault, and you are not to blame for your illness. You didn’t cause it or create it. I healed, and I believe that you can too! God bless you always.
