Through treatments you dream of that tropical beach,
The pain runs through you,
There is nothing you can do,
Allows you no rest,
Day after day,
New symptoms effect you in a different way,
What can you say?
Lie that you are okay?
Avoiding the truth from yourself and the ones you surround,
My body weak - I could just fall to the ground,
Snap out of it,
It's just some pain you have had for a bit,
At the doctors the same routine- take a seat,
Let's check your heart beat,
Bloods drawn weekly from my arm,
Trying to keep my body from further harm,
You have to be your own healer,
Ask once again for your cards from the dealer,
Make the best of them and play them well,
We can't escape so must embrace the hell,
By a system that's floored,
Too complex of a challenge to take on,
They simply want me gone,
Keep on top of all your treatments and results,
Throw at me your insults,
I'm being brave for me,
Fighting for a healthier me,
I have been strong,
The fight has been so long,
Day after day,
We are faced with new challenges in some way,
I am doing my best,
To ace this test,
The games we play,
Rest - we must delay,
For today there is a new fight,
Our goals we must keep in sight,
Never surrendering to the enemies that live inside,
Nobody ever said it would be an easy ride,
Though here you are still standing tall,
Rising above it all,
You shine bright,
Even when you feel invisible and out of sight,
When you are most upset,
Is when you are most helpful I bet,
Your words run deep,
People read and close to their hearts keep,
My goal to help and inspire,
Resting up and storing the strength I require,
To keep fighting on,
One day because number one.
The hands reaches for the heart ❤️ the heart representing freedom and happiness ! The goal for so many of us. It is blossoming like a flower, telling us it needs time to grow and looked after before we can see the results.
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN.
Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
