No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
My last blog was more than three years ago when my Dad passed away. When he was gone, I lost hope for a while, I had lost my best friend. I lost part of me. The abusive marriage I was in, became unbearable. I finally was able to leave in August of 2012, but suffered horribly from PTSD. I am now able to come off the antidepressant, anxiety, and stomach medicine I had to take to maintain my sanity and get thru an ugly divorce, fight for my children,a new home, and a new life. Along the way my maternal family also turned against me. How dare I break up the family. I am now 50 and ready to start again. Doing a juice feast. I need to get rid of the residual emotions, clean the chemicals from my body and get my drive, stamina, and energy back. My diet has stayed primarily vegan, but not full of the nutrition of a raw food diet. But the effects of the dual stress still has worn me down and again, I feel the false me is taking over.
So here I am. Ready to start taking care of me again. I always put everyone first. Its not working anymore. I left so my daughters to set an example for my daughters. Now I have to set another example. How to take care of themselves.
