Sleep Deprived + Healing Vibes

Another Monday, another dandelion root (+ a little real coffee) latte with coconut and homemade hemp milk, gelatin and vanilla.

I’m having a LOT of trouble sleeping the last month. This has come on the heels of mystery stomach pains and undigested food, which was followed by an eczema flare, which has only been the latest in a long string of random, short term symptoms that nobody can figure out. If I had a million dollars I could perhaps get the one test that will tell all. But that will never happen. So I am trying to be kind to myself (never easy for me, least of all when my body is being so argumentative), and trying to nourish with food, yoga, sunshine, forest, ocean… I even picked up drawing again after almost a decade away. All I can do is hope that things will sort themselves out. I have finally been referred to an endocrinologist here, so perhaps they will have the good sense to test my antibodies (how has nobody ever done that for me?!). This too shall pass…?

I welcome any healing vibes! How do you cope when it just keeps coming at you?IMG_1395

  1. Thank you so much Sara!! It helps so much to hear encouragement from people who KNOW! 🙂 I will let you know what happens xox

  2. I’m so sorry that things are flaring up. I’m sending you all the positive energy I can <3. I hope that your new endo is fantastic and supportive and helps you get down to the root of the issue. Keep in touch and let me know how it goes. You are not alone!

    As for coping – I do a lot of what you're doing – painting, fresh air, river/ocean, forest. I love mindfulness meditation. I often focus on my pituitary gland and thyroid connection – come on TSH! I rest, I let go of anything unnecessary. I basically create a giant bubble of self-love and become very self focused. Whatever it is you need to support yourself at the time. Of course, food is always a huge part of my self-love language and I definitely continue to focus on that. I have a huge healing team of friends and family and I lean on them when I need to. I think it's an incredibly personal thing, but do what feels right to you, lean on your support system and be honest about your needs. Things will get better.

    All my love!
