I’m writing this post from my hotel bed, in Thailand! Albeit jet lagged and a bit concussed. I decided to walk into a glass door yesterday, a bit like a bird who thought it was an open space – the glass was so clean!! A small bump to my head is all that was endured.
Looking back just a couple of months ago I would have never imagined I would be well enough to fly and be in another country, enjoying travel again. If you are ever in a dark spot just know it will change soon, much sooner than you know!
2 months ago I was detained under the mental health act and in a psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU). Now I’m looking ahead and embracing life. It’s not without its daily struggles of overcoming unwanted thoughts, but that’s the difference now – I’ve claimed myself to be an overcomer! Whatever is thrown at me by my PTSD & DID, I will combat it. I will not fall victim to the trauma responses my brain keeps trying to have. I’m a survivor now. I will keep affirming to myself the truth about who I really am and not what abuse has taught me.
So I’ve finished the 30 day detox / cleanse now, it was both rough and smooth, but fortunately mostly smooth! I mostly, on a daily basis, accomplished everything I wanted too. I had some gluten the other day and I broke out in spots!! I’m clearly gluten sensitive so will be avoiding gluten as much as I can. I lost one stone and a half. I was hoping for 2 stone, but I am just glad to have shifted some weight. I think the cleanse enabled my system to start breaking down the fat. It seemed to just be so stuck there before. Apart from my spots I have today because of my gluten faux par, my skin has been radiant and glowing. I have had more energy than I’ve had in such a long time. My clarity and decision making has been better. My immune system definitely better – I avoided the Christmas bugs. I am not suffering so much aches and pains. I think my body has reduced inflammation and benefited so much from the 30 days.
I’m going to continue forward on a vegan, gluten free diet, 80/20. It’s really changed the way I look at and behave with food. I’m in such a better pace now with nutrition. I will do a 30 day update video as promised. Excuse the gluten spots and bruised bump on my head haha!
I hope you are all doing well. Always know you are stronger than you think you are. Asking for help and reaching out is the greatest strength of all. Love Tracey x
