I stopped all sugar in March 2019 because my life sucked.
What do I mean my life sucked, well the pain was so bad that even my bones hurt.
I could barely walk.
Climbing stairs were completely out of the question.
Trying to stand up took a while, meaning first I had to stand and when I finally made to an upright position it would then take me a few slow steps to get my right leg to start working. After about three or four steps I was able to walk for a little while before the pain would get so bad I would have to stop.
But the last thing I wanted to do was sit down because then I would have to get up again and that hurts.
If I sit for too long my tailbone hurts and sleeping was not restful because whatever part of my body was laying on the bed would start to hurt within 30 minutes.
So I have to change positions all night.
Rotisserie sleeping is what I call it.
My mind was not in a good place either.
I didn’t want to live anymore.
Yes, you read that right I wanted to die.
I would pray for the pain to leave my body and it seemed after 23 years of fight CFIDS/ ME Lupus, Fibromyalgia, MCAS and EDS nothing would help except death.
I have been to countless doctors, have taken countless medications, supplements did every type of different treatment I could find.
I was giving up hope.
Then I listened to someone, AKA my wonderful amazing coach Doctor Lauren Fitzgerald
and she said give her 30 days follow the plan for 30 days and if I don’t see/feel the difference I could get my money back.
I said yes.
For 6 months I have been “In School” for my health.
At first, I just did what she said no question and with in the first 2 weeks, I felt better than I had in a really long time.
Then I wanted to found out why so that I would be able to apply this knowledge to my life and help others too.
One thing I found out is sugar is really addictive.
You know you get that little thought in your head,
“You deserve that piece of cake, donut, brownie…..
you have been good for all this time just eat it.”
If I allow myself a little one day then the next day I crave more if I resist I am good if not my pain starts to creep back in.
I deserve to feel like crap?
If I derve the sugary snack then I deserve to feel like crap.
Aches, pains, and added moodiness all because I deserve to eat something sweet.
Not the best way to treat yourself.
