Today, I am thankful for coming off a medicine that was not helping but giving me side effects that were making me very uncomfortable.
Sometimes we have to advocate for ourselves... just because a medicine is suppose to be helpful for an illness or an ailment etc., doesn't always mean it's the right choice for our bodies...
Now that I am off that medicine I am starting to feel better ... and so for the new medicine is working so much better than that other popular one... fingers crossed it will continue to be helpful without side effects that make me feel soooo much worse..
Western medicine has a purpose in healing but it doesn't have to be the be the only aspect to our healing.. some times looking outside the box we can find things that can help and sometimes those things outside the box aren't the only way to heal either..
We have to remember to balance both inside the box (Western Medicine) and outside the box (Eastern or Alternative Medicines)... to figure out what our unique bodies need to heal..
So I am thankful I noticed what was going on and spoke up... because the last 3 weeks were hard with weaning off to get me to at least back to before taking the medicine..
Thankful I am feeling so much better.. and have the ability to work towards a balance that works for my body inside and out....
