New Journey

I started training for a new job yesterday. I can't believe I would ever work again. I have been going to weight watchers for the past six months and one day as I was weighing the leader said. "Come work for us." I said okay not really thinking they were serious. They were!!!!!!! I will train this week and if all goes well I will be a receptionist for a couple of meetings a week.  Not much but enough that it will let me be with others who are working on a healthy journey and keep myself going. I remember when I had to give up my nursing licenses and all the training and work I had put into that career seemed lost. I don't know why that was a lot of my self worth, but it was. I have struggled with that for a long time. I have been asked why I don't try to return to nursing but I have very little sensation in my hands and arms. I could not do what a nurse needs to do. I don't know if my fibromyagia would cooperate either. I have new doors to open and new hope for opportunities. I know that all the things I have had to fight through have had a reason. Sometimes I just wonder why it had to be so hard? I go on a new journey and excited for it.

    I am beyond so happy for you! You are so inspirational! So I am sure you hear about different things to try for your fibromyagia. But have you ever looked into laser treatments. I laser people all day long and I personally see the impact it is having in peoples lives. I would'nt share this if I didnt see it with my own eyes. I have been lasering a few people with fibromyagia and its helping them so very much! You can look into it a little, go to this is a class IV laser the brand is lite cure. A lot of places are starting to have them and I know there is a guy there in ST George that has one. Anyway it is doing wonders for nerve damage and many many other things digenerative dics, arthritis, bone damage, its really amazing! I think it would do wonders for you too! Your body is made up of cells and cells heal your body and they are created through light. Well when you put a lot of light in an area that is damaged it will generate those cells and that will heal your nerves, bone, tissue, ect. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you about that cause I really think it will help.
    But you truly are amazing!
