and so it continues...

For most of my life I have struggled with body image issues.
Even when I was thin, I still felt fat.

As an adult, the struggle has been physical
(I've gained weight, I've lost weight)
as well as, an emotional one.

It's like riding a rollercoaster...the ups, the downs, the twists, and turns.
it really does damage not only your body, but your mind as well.

When you struggle with your weight, you will literally try almost anything.
If someone tells you that they lost weight standing on their head
three times a week for a month and lost twenty pounds
you think to yourself - well, if it worked for them
maybe it will work for me too.  
So you try it.

and of course you fail.
and when you fail, it damages your psyche.

You doubt yourself
You blame yourself
You shame yourself

And the next thing you know another new fad, or pill, or quick fix comes along
and there you go again - the cycle continues.
In a way I suppose, it's almost like an addiction.
(and I'm not talking about just a food addiction here)

The constant yo-yo doesn't just deal with the loss and gain of weight
but, with the loss and gain of yourself.

You all know what I mean.
It's brutal
no joke.

Through it all, you think you are alone in this battle.
Like you are the only one who struggles
and that no one really understands your story or what you are going through.
But you are not alone.

We are all in this together.
And while each of us has a different story to tell
we all need someone to share it with.
Someone who really gets it
Someone who has been in the trenches

Because even when we think we've won the war
we still need to fight the battle every day.

Every Single Day.

What's our motivation for basically torturing ourselves?

health
special occasion
self-image

whatever it is - it's much better to have someone in your corner
rather than face it alone, don't you think?


Everyone has a story
what's your's?

It is no secret that I have a very deep and personal relationship with God. I have pushed and resisted that relationship this past year through all the bullshit I have had to go through living with Herpes but once again, God is bigger than my stubbornness and broke through that outbreak cold sore and all I had Genital Herpes. For me personally, hearing over and over how I am not good enough has really invaded my mind in the worst way possible. I completely shut down and I was just waking up like is this how life going to end this temporary herpes outbreak “fuck everybody with herpes if you know what I mean” but let's be honest here...It is a cowardly to say no to herbal medicine. It is fear based. And it is dishonest to what my heart wants. Don't build a wall around yourself because you are afraid of herbals made or taking a bold step especially when it's come to health issues and getting cure. So many young men/ women tell me over and over that Dr Itua is going to scam me but I give him a try to today I feel like no one will ever convince me about herbal medicine I accept Dr Itua herbal medicine because it's cure my herpes just two weeks of drinking it and i have been living for a year and months now I experience outbreak no more, You can contact him if you need his herbal medicine for any such diseases like,HIV,Epilepsy Infertility, Herpes, Hepatitis, Schizophrenia,Cancer,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic,Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Prostate Cancer,Blood Cancer,Lung Cancer,Brain Cancer,Colo-Rectal Cancer,Love Spell,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy,Hpv,Weak Erection,Wart Remover. Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic, Love Spell,. Email..drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com then what's app.+2348149277967.... My advice to any sick men/women out there is simple... Be Always an open book. Be gut wrenching honest about yourself, your situation, and what you are all about. Don't hold anything back. Holding back will get you nowhere...maybe a one way ticket to lonelyville and that is NOT somewhere you want to be. So my final truth...and I'm just starting to grasp this one..
