I was sick for years...
I struggled every single day from morning to night with excruciating headaches. I needed 2-3 hour naps each day just to make it through till dinner. I was constantly snapping at my family. I was miserable, and making everyone around me miserable too.
When I finally solved the headaches, I started suffering with acne and hormone issues that kept me hiding my self from the world, and worse - prevented us from having more children. I wore makeup all the time - even to the gym. I couldn't think of eating dairy without a new breakout starting. My cycles were either nonexistent or continuous and heavy.
Then, I finally sorted out some of the hormone stuff -enough to have another baby! - but felt powerless against the weight gain, and the massive physical burden and body pain that came with it. My hips, knees, and ankles hurt constantly. I even developed a hump in my neck.
I spent thousands of dollars on products and supplements, invested countless hours, read book after book, joined online groups, went to workshops.
