There comes a time when you realize that there's no pill or supplement that's going to make this Meniere's thing go away. You get to a point where you realize you're going to need to learn how to manage nutrition, and learn how to manage stress.
7 years ago I was struggling through 3-4 episodes a week. I was in a vacuum of fear. I couldn’t pay attention to people I cared about. The only thoughts I had were tense worries: was I safe to drive, could I work, would somebody be there if I couldn’t walk.
I also had a strong rebel's complex, of "hey, screw you, Meniere's!" that came through as anger, of fight against the odds. Of dissatisfaction.
Probably people saw this in me and avoided me. Probably it created a lot of stress. But it fueled me to seek out new answers.
Do you have this quality?
I remember that shift in thinking between huddling in the corner, readying myself for the next attack - a reactive response, to being proactive.
Instead of reacting to fear, I started making better choices. I started asking questions about what would help me and what else was out there for me.
"How does the present choice (in food, in how I was thinking) affect my health next week, or 3 months from now?"
This is a lot different than “what happens if I get an attack today?!”.
It transforms you from a victim into a resilient person.
Being resilient is deciding what direction you'll go instead of getting taken over by uncontrollable thoughts and symptoms.
Being resilient means you recover quickly from stress, you know what your emotions are and what to do about them, and you know what to do in your commitments and schedule and connections with other people.
If you like the idea of being resilient, and you want to spend 12 weeks with me and 4 other people deciding they are not going to take it anymore, feel free to book a strategy call to talk about it.
These calls are so that I can hear about what you're dealing with, how it's affecting your connections with people and your health, and how the 90 Days to Resiliency program can change it for the better.
Here's the link to book your call. It goes right to my personal schedule and email:
