Hey guys,

I posted some time ago about IBS, inflammed gut basicly, and I found the remedy, my belt was too tight but since I have been feeling great "healthy" my mind is much more clear regarding the abuse. The funny thing is, well not funny but the abuse had me afraid to feel or be in touch with my body and that led to not being able to read my bodies needs. The belt was tight and I tactilly liked it that way but it was causing severe abdominal and bowel problems I just couldn't read the signs. I am kind of torn when it comes to my feelings and especially my body.

Long to short - Our health gets worse with the abuse lingering around in our minds thus making it harder to heal the mental side of our lives.

Try to stay in touch with or get in touch with your body, read the signs and pay attention to them.

I feel like I am twenty again, joking around, living life like it should be lived. I could have gone through all of this without the stomach problems, it would have been much easier.

Don't add problems, stay healthy and read your body signs of distress, don't neglect your body.

Love you guys,

John,

That's such an important point to make, though I am the last one who deserves to urge it on anyone. I have made a lot of progress in so many areas, but taking care of myself physically is one area where I am still quite a mess. I needed this reminder! Thanks! \:\)

Much love,
Larry

I too am a mess in taking care of myself. I'm getting better though, I used to eat out all the time. The only thing that got me out of that habit is one month, my hours got cut severely due to a lack of work, that caused me to count every penny and now I eat oatmeal for breakfast and a turkey sandwich for lunch which I make. So I'm still overwieght but I'm getting healthier and I've seen some minor changes already because of it.

That is true, although sometime we do not have such control over our health. But it is always best to try to maintain it, if we can, because we do not need to add further damages or problems to ourselfs.
