My health story
In the last 10 years of my life I have been diagnosed with clinical depression, PTSD, PPD and generalized anxiety & panic disorder, in search of answers I dated therapists off and on, and over the years I’ve developed tools to live with my mental health illness so that it no longer consumes me.
In 2016 I embarked on a health and lifestyle change to combat those many years of battling mental health, and a part of that journey meant a lot of self-care and rediscovery. I started therapy and medication under the care of a psychiatrist and LCSW. Through the support of my partner and team of physicians I was able to BEGIN my healing process. It wasn’t until some time after and a major health scare led me down the path of holistic health that I began to seek and find true TRANSFORMATION.
At the end of 2017 I was diagnosed with IBS, a chronic digestive system disorder that was discovered after months of bedridden pain, combatting dismissive doctors and several procedures. After the discovery I was placed on 3 types of medication and a very limited diet, but quickly found that this was no way to keep living. During this time I began to research veganism and holistic nutrition as a means to naturally find healing for my day to day pain without toxic medications.
I began to transition my diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits with a more holistic approach and after 6 months of daily medications I decided to stop and begin to use food as healing. I fully transitioned to a vegan diet in July of 2018 and with a more holistic health approach I am able to manage triggers and have truly healed myself inside out.
A large part of my journey has been my weightloss journey!
While rediscovering myself I found that I knew a large part of my confidence and health issues stemmed from being obese. In June 2017 I was 230 pounds, the heaviest I had been in my life up to that point, I looked in the mirror and assessed weather I would make a change for myself and from then on my journey and progress has surpassed every goal.
.The greatest part of the journey was not just losing 80 pounds (as of November 2019) but realizing that in this journey I was finding myself, joy and harmony in my life and in all areas. Check out some of my most recent weightloss pictures.
So happy that you’re here. Take a look around.
