Who Am I?
zig-zagging through the ever-changing territory of self

What an idea. I was sitting in one of my town's original non-franchise tea/coffee places, when this unoriginal yet stunning concept came to me. I was thinking that I hadn't written in my CureZone blog for over two weeks, and although many topics entered my mind to write about, the one that stood out in my mind was this "Who Am I" topic. I thought of the old song from the 60s from that great old album by Country Joe and the Fish, of the same title: "Who Am I." It's a classic song for some. I like many of Country Joe's other songs better.
Anywho, I was thinking about this: how did my blog get to the top ten here? It really just consists of my humble personal ramblings mostly about alternative health modalities that I've tried or that friends have told me about. Plus a healthy helping of check-in type blogs.
Who knows? Thanks to everyone who takes the time to read what I've written here. I'd love to hear from you. People used to send me emails, or make comments, but there are less lately. I love to connect.
I notice the more controversial blogs get more comments. I tend to be pretty middle-of-the-road, and a therapist I went to many years ago accused me of being a conflict avoider, to which he apparently attributed some indication of pathology. I like peacefulness and serenity. Is that so wrong?
But I'd love to hear from you anyway. And you certainly don't have to agree with me.
Now to the Who Am I topic. I know we don't have to share anything really about who we are here on CureZone and that it is advised we keep our actual identities confidential. I like that.
I just wanted to go back to the time when I first began blogging here, and a little bit before that, and again thank those here who've helped me since I found this wonderful place on the 'net, but I won't get too much more verbose, as I don't want to bore you.
It all started really when I got a full time decent paying career-type job approximately 5 years ago. Financially it was a blessing, but as time went on, I began to be given diagnoses at my HMO doctor visits. This hadn't really happened in my life before. I'm fairly certain the stress of the career has been a primary cause for these diagnoses. Sure, there's the genetic factor and my choices of what to eat, and my activity level, etc. etc. etc. All of the above.
A couple of years ago I acquired an innovative device called the VIBE Machine and although at first I thought it would be the be-all-and-end-all that would restore me to perfect health, I found out that although certainly restoring the cells of the body to their original youthful state (which is what the VIBE Machine's ultimate function is) is helpful, there is still all of the other stuff like making healthy eating choices, getting enough of the right kind of exercise (different for every person), and either finding a way to cope with stress so it doesn't wear you down, or finding a way to avoid it altogether. There's lots more, these are just the basics. Genetics are not exactly changeable, but to some degree they're transcendable under ideal circumstances.
So I've still got the same job, and it's still stressful, though I'm constantly finding newer and better ways to transcend the stress. There's always the choice of resigning, but I have not found a potentially less stressful job yet. I'm looking into ideas of something I can do to add enough income to live on that would be do-able in my humble VIBE office. The VIBE business is something I absolutely love doing, but it barely pays the rent on the office where I'm located. I'm ok with that because I love being able to offer this modality to people at an affordable rate. This office has some space in the loft area for storage, and I'm trying to think of ideas for an enterprise on Amazon.com. I know people who are successful on ebay and on Amazon, so I know it can be done. I'm just not a natural entrepeneur, but am open to learning to become one.
So who am I? A person slightly over 50, feel younger, working consciously on improving my health every single day.
All of those words, just to get to a simple paragraph that says it all.
I love you all, thank you for being here. That's all for now.
