After 13 years of undiagnosed chronic illness, I had pretty much given up on doctors, natural and allopathic, and healers of all types. Although a few doctors provided an important piece of the puzzle, no one could figure me out completely. The medicine and supplements they prescribed usually made me worse.
I’ve learned to manage my own symptoms, primarily through diet and carefully selected supplements. My energy is limited, my life is boundaried, but I rarely experience dramatic symptoms if I follow my self-prescribed protocol. I can do so much more than many people with chronic illness.
That doesn’t mean I’m healed at all. With one slip, symptoms return, with multiple slips they compound.
