Costochondritis- Letting go of the Past

Hello my crazy and amazing readers,

I don't know about you, but this whole journey has opened my eyes and heart to so much. I've learned tons about myself, my lack of faith, how to gain that faith back with strength, what love is really about, how strong and yet weak I am, and so much more. Yet one thing that has really risen to the top in the midst of this pain- how letting go of the past can bring such freedom to this blessed life.

For me, letting go of where I've been, loving myself for who I am now, and forgiving have been huge a part of this journey, just as much as the physical pain. This physical pain has stopped me in my tracks, opening up a gap of time for me to reflect on the woman I am, and the woman I want to be. And although this pain has kicked my butt in so many ways, I am thankful for the growth in me that has to do with moving forward, cause holding on to the past only weighs you down, filling your life full of rocks, making it almost impossible to fly. So if you are struggling with letting go of your past- your emotional pain of either dealing with your invisible illness or other pain in your life- you might want to check out this great post from a blog I enjoy following. You can check it out HERE. This beautiful post deals with how we often carry around our struggles as badges of honor, instead of letting them roll into the ditches, where they belong. Or maybe that's just stubborn little ol' me. =)

Hugs,
Lucy

  3. Hi Sweet Lucy!
    I am writing you from the charming little town of Voorthuizen, Netherlands!!! I am here and did not have much pain on the plane all and since I've been here hardly any!!! Even with hauling a 45 pound suitcase around. You know this is truely a miracle! Just finished training the adults and going to meet with the kids tonight! YiPPEE!
    I do just love your most recent post and the blog you sited. I believe that for most of us, some kind of trauma, good or bad, sends us into this imbalance and that needs to be healed as well as the physical. Think of the Russian matryoshka nesting dolls. Deep inside of our happy painted on faces is a tiny one that needs healing, too.
    I love you and am praying for breakthrough into a new level of pain free living!

    Hi there from across the ocean! Great to hear from you- I've been praying for you and your trip! I'm SO happy to hear that the plane ride was tolerable- that's SO wonderful. I can't believe you're in the Neterhlands, that is so cool!! Hope the rest of the trip rocks in every way! I'm sure you are amazing with the kids- how fun!

    I love the doll analogy- so so so so true. Thank you so much for the prayers. I so appreciate them with all my heart!

    Hugs and love,
    Lucy

  5. Wow Lucy, you maintain such a positive attitude and strength of character (to keep going, and digging and sticking with treatments). I really admire that...most of the time I find myself dwelling on negative stuff dealing with my condition.

    Gonna try to take a page from your book!

  6. Peter,
    That's very kind of you. I try, and often fail to keep a positive attitude...and I think I only post on more positive days! lol. =)

    You hang in there, I know you are really digging and seeking, and for that, I totally commend you. I know it's painful and really tough- sending a hug of support your way!!! And thanks for keeping me posted on what you are trying and how you are doing, I know that so many who read this,and myself, so appreciate your generosity with where you are!

    Hugs,
    Lucy

  8. It was during my research on HIV/Herpes that I stumbled upon the Hiv/Herpes information; information which is quite easy to find when doing a search for STD on google. I was into conspiracy at the time thought of HIV/Herpes Cured' being a conspiracy was something Ignorance though,I found pretty interesting about herbal medicine. I asked questions about the Herbal cure's on official HIV/Herpes websites and I was banned for doing so by moderators who told me that I was parroting Hiv/Herpes propaganda. This reinforced my belief that there is a cure for Hiv/Herpes Then i found a lady from germany name Achima Abelard Dr Itua Cure her Hiv so I send him a mail about my situation then talk more about it and send me his herbal medicine I drank for two weeks.And today I'm Cured no Hiv/Herpes in my life,I searched for Hiv/Herpes groups to attempt to make contact with people in order to learn more about Hiv/Herpes Herbal Cure's I believed at this time that you with the same disease this information is helpful to you and I wanted to do the best I could to spread this information in the hopes of helping other people.That Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Cancer,Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Syndrome Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.Fatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic diseases.Hiv_ Aids,Herpes,Inflammatory bowel disease ,Copd,Diabetes,Hepatitis,I read about him online how he cure Tasha and Tara,Conley,Mckinney and many more suffrin from all kind of disease so i contacted him .

  9. First and foremost, yay! If you are sick person? You're not in the dark anymore, and that's half the battle. Secondly, don't get discouraged. Although it might be hard to not beat yourself up over the ups and downs (it took going through an entire category of medications, endless rounds of physical therapy, multiple casts, different specialists, and taking a drug every day to stay alive. That wasn't for me I must say, I suffered HIV/Herpes since 2003 when I was raped, for me to find something to believe in that I will be save someday was tough to say of things) and the outbreak remind me on how I got the disease. After I have a chance to visit my African friend in Miami then he told me about Dr Itua who reside in west Africa(Nigeria)I know the country has a lot of sorts of things out there but i just have to trust him and I proceed with the treatment, happily I take it for two weeks as Dr Itua instructed me to so after two weeks I went for test then I found out I was cured, The herbal medicine has no side effect and I'm healthy today no more pills or outbreak I'm getting my life back now, gradually. Contact Dr Itua if you are suffering from the below diseases.....HIV/Aids, Herpes, Genital Or Oral disease, Wart, Shingles and Blisters, Cold Sore, Lupus, Chronic Lyme Disease, Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson, Hepatitis A/B. Diabetes, Cancer. Info Contact...drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com Or Whatsapp Number...+2348149277967. ...

  10. It is no secret that I have a very deep and personal relationship with God. I have pushed and resisted that relationship this past year through all the bullshit I have had to go through living with Herpes but once again, God is bigger than my stubbornness and broke through that outbreak cold sore and all I had Genital Herpes. For me personally, hearing over and over how I am not good enough has really invaded my mind in the worst way possible. I completely shut down and I was just waking up like is this how life going to end this temporary herpes outbreak “fuck everybody with herpes if you know what I mean” but let's be honest here...It is a cowardly to say no to herbal medicine. It is fear based. And it is dishonest to what my heart wants. Don't build a wall around yourself because you are afraid of herbals made or taking a bold step especially when it's come to health issues and getting cure. So many young men/ women tell me over and over that Dr Itua is going to scam me but I give him a try to today I feel like no one will ever convince me about herbal medicine I accept Dr Itua herbal medicine because it's cure my herpes just two weeks of drinking it and i have been living for a year and months now I experience outbreak no more, You can contact him if you need his herbal medicine for any such diseases like,HIV,Epilepsy Infertility, Herpes, Hepatitis, Schizophrenia,Cancer,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic,Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic, Love Spell,. Email..drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com then what's app.+2348149277967.... My advice to any sick men/women out there is simple... Be Always an open book. Be gut wrenching honest about yourself, your situation, and what you are all about. Don't hold anything back. Holding back will get you nowhere...maybe a one way ticket to lonelyville and that is NOT somewhere you want to be. So my final truth...and I'm just starting to grasp this one..
