Or is that one’s self? I don’t know. I care a little but not enough to check it out, you know?
Thanks Gal for the comment that I am a bit hard on myself. I can be, yes. More often, though, I am inclined to slack and let things just float away. That’s probably why I am so hard on myself when the time comes because I’ve gotten away with things for a long time. (That makes no sense to anyone but me, I know.)
Had a nice consultation with a medical intuitive by the name of Christopher Stewart. In case you want to know more, here’s a great page on what, exactly, a medical intuitive does. I contacted him after a referral from my coach because I was worried about something my body was doing. See, during the hub-bub of Duty’s illness, I started spotting very lightly. This is not a good sign if you’ve been in menopause as I’ve been for over six years. It’s especially worrying when one’s mother had uterine cancer that she chose to ignore until it metastasized into a breast tumor. (yes, me again)
My coach told me an interesting factoid: when one’s spouse/partner/significant other has major illnesses, it often affects the other (well) partner in their reproductive organs. Hence, the spotting.
Before anyone starts spazzing out – yes, I went to my family doc who agreed that while it’s most likely nothing to worry about, best to go see an OB/GYN to be sure. So, yes, I’ll be doing all the medical stuff in tandem with the info I got from Christopher.
In short, Christopher said that no cancer energy present there (whew!) but that my hormone levels are hella wonked out. Like big time – which accounts for the mood issues as well as the weight gain. I am very deficient on B-12 and DHA (found in fish oil) and he said once I start getting that in a decent range, I will feel a lot better. He gave me other suggestions as well as recommending a full panel of bloodwork for hormonal issues so he can work with my doc on getting them adjusted. Re: the spotting – he said “Your body is crying” and that brought tears immediately for me. He hit a couple tender spots in the conversation.
He also said this: there are issues that I have been pushing away for a while (which I am not divulging here) that need to be felt and dealt with or else the possibility of something like fibromyalgia is imminent. He named the issues so I know he’s right (and they’re not common ones) as well as hitting the mark on about 50 other things. He recommended a technique called “Focusing” that I had yet to come across in my therapeutic channels. (Here’s a good explanation of what it is. Warning, it’s a wall of words. Important stuff is at the top, mostly.)
Naturally, being the researcher that I am, books were bought and read, techniques tried and I’ll be working more on this with my coach. In fact, much of what is involved in the technique were things she has suggested to me. Interesting.
So, that’s what’s been going on in my world. My body needs some attention and I am doing my best to attend to it.
I cannot recommend Christopher highly enough. He’s well versed in all the scientific aspects of what he does but also goes deeper into the emotional pieces as well and how they play together. Once I get all the supps he mentioned and start taking them and get the bloodwork panels done, I’ll talk with him again and see how it’s coming together. If you have medical issues that keep coming up no matter what you do, I’d suggest a call with Christopher. You don’t have to be a woo-woo chick to get the benefit of his knowledge.
