I know I said I wouldn't post until January (and I may not post until then, or may rarely post until then), but I thought I'd post this card. The past couple of weeks I have felt rather crummy. As I mentioned in my previous post, I've had some sort of gastrointestinal and other issue (sinus? ear?) that is causing vertigo. However, since seeing an chiropractor/nutritionist/acupuncturist lady I've seen some improvement and we have a plan for improving not just this issue but my overall health.
Even though I'm not 100% better, I'm starting to see a positive turn and, because of that, my anxiety has reduced considerably. My blood pressure shot up during this past couple weeks of crappiness, and that began to concern me. But, as my anxiety has diminished, my blood pressure has returned to normal. Since then, just in the past day or two, I've felt motivated to be involved in my own life and my own well-being. I want to feel good, not just sort of ok.
In any case, I hope that my next blog post reveals that I feel a lot better. One positive thing about not feeling well the past couple of weeks is that I have been realizing how much I've neglected my physical and emotional health. I have not seen a health practitioner or anyone who might help me feel better. I've just been floating along, feeling mediocre, sometimes feeling really crappy. I think my body finally sent me a strong signal to pay more attention.
Wishing everyone a happy solstice, Hanukkah, yuletide, Christmas, and New Year.
