WARNING: Emotional Honesty Being Practiced Here
I believe in the Grief Recovery Method so much that I not only teach it, but I practice it in my own life. The biggest incomplete loss I have is that concerns the decades of my life surrounding Lyme Disease. It is a huge topic for me, with many, many kinds of losses. Up until now, I have not wanted to tackle it because I needed to know that I am on the verge of life instead of the verge of death. I needed to know there would be another tomorrow. Chris and I were ready for me to die. And yet, I somehow always had the strength to stay alive. In this past year, I have truly come to know I am now healthy. I need to work on my loss issues to regain control of my life.
I’ve charted out my health history and already noticed patterns of illness in my life. This last week has been a rough one for me. I felt, lonely, powerless, ashamed, unhappy, exhausted, and hopeless.
On Monday, I’m going to start working Cari Dawson on my loss history for Lymes Disease. So we will start working through those. I don’t know where this journey will take me, but I will give you an update from time to time. One of my favorite teachers always says, “Words don’t teach, only life experience teaches.” I’ll be sharing my life experiences so that I can become a better teacher and also encourage you to start or continue your own journey through the losses in your life.
What I am intending to see at the end of this work is that my soul is lighter, my mind is clearer, and the smile has come back onto my face.
To be continued …
