Thank you SO much for the kind, insightful, and thought-provoking response! It's so easy to get overwhelmed by life, as well as getting sucked back into the past or become preoccupied by the future. Dealing with health and trauma issues only compounds the negative even further. I try so hard to change my thinking and to get out of the negative zone, but it is so incredibly hard. And if I am able to do so, this state of mind only lasts for a brief moment...then I'm right back to the dark zone.
I'm currently reading The Health Codes. It's pretty fascinating stuff and I'm hoping it works for me.
I pray that things inch up on the brighter side for u and that u don't lose your hope, faith, and convictions.
