Health is a journey from the middle of (k)nowhere

Anyone who has dealth with severe disease and has overcome it, knows that health is a journey.
A journey where you get dropped in the middle of knowhere (not a spelling mistake 😉 with misleading roadsigns.

When you become ill, it usually happens gradually, you start feeling more tired, you have more ups and down, you get depressed.
And all of a sudden, before you even realize it, your life has become this dark place filled with hospitals and white coats.
No answers, just test and more tests. If one thing doesn’t work, we will try another.
But all that time, you feel yourself wondering, why? Why has this happened to me? Why am I now such a burden on my family? Why me?
What is wrong with me?
And that question never seems to get answered.

Sometimes there are answers for the symptoms, but not why they arose in the first place.
So you wait, you wait for someone to give you anwsers.

And finally you get the answers, but it might not be what you expected. You get an answer telling you there is nothing more they can do, you will never get better.
Or you get an answer that you might hope to be 60% of what you ever were.
The masters of your universe have spoken and told you that you should just face it, nothing more to do.
The little pills will keep you going just enough so you can survive in your dark place and learn to cope with it.

So then you start thinking, why? Why does it have to be like this? Who gives them the right to tell me that?
And you are faced with a choice, accept that the dark room will be the place where you spend your eternity, or, you take a journey, a journey into the unknown, towards the light that you know is there, but just can’t see.

the blessing of an iffy health

I am blessed with health that needs a lot of work. Most people can do a lot to their body and never even notice it, actually that is not true, all bodies suffer, but some choose to wait a long time to actually show it. Not mine, it is a great measuring tool to see effects of foods, chemicals, stress,… so it it is really a blessing because it allows me to experiment, and through those experiments, cure myself and share that knowledge with others.
Since yesterday, I have had a trapped nerve, very painful and has as a side effect that it prevents me from sleeping. But, luckily, during my years of discovering great remedies, I have discovered a chinese oil, I got it from one of the Chinese acupunture centers in the UK, and they told me that in China, every one used to have this oil, it was known as a miracle cure. Unfortunately, this is now one of the things that the natural remedy witchhunt has now taken away, so it is not available anymore for sale. I still have about half a bottle, and I have been using only a few drops and the difference is already remarkable. There are so many great cures out there for all illnesses, it just takes time to find them.
It really has become like a treasure hunt to try and find them.
I will keep looking.

“Life is like photography. You need the negatives to develop.”

As a kid, I was always ill, throat infections, ear infections, colds, flu,… and for some reason I was always tired. Every Sunday, my mum and dad used to take us for bicycle rides, through the forest or somewhere in nature; to make sure we got plenty of exercise and fresh air. It would have been great, except that I always felt dead tired. I was always asking my dad: “Dad… can you carry me? I’m really tired”

Being a teenager wasn’t that much fun either. Same thing, ill a lot and always tired. And after years of antibiotics, tonsils taken out and various other side effects like IBS and no one ever having any answer to why I was so tired, it got to a point of no return.

At least that was what the experts had to say. I had reached a point where I was about as fit as a 99 year old. Barely able to walk up the stairs, not able to work anymore, depressed and useless… that was the emotion I felt most, utterly useless and a waste of space. It sure was a dark place.

After plenty of tests at the hospital, they finally put a name on it: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The professor who diagnosed me was one of the leading researchers in this field. and I remember it clearly as if it was yesterday… My dad and I were walking out of his office and I just had to ask this question. I said: “Please be honest with me. Will I ever get better?” –  His reply was this: “No… *big pause* … at most you can expect to regain 60 percent of what you were able to do before.”

Instantly, a fire just lit up inside of me. I was angry! I wasnt going to let this be the end of it! I was determined to beat this and this was the start of a long voyage, that took me to foreign places and brought me fascinating, magical and scientific encounters with people out there with a genuine gift and the desire to truly heal, people from all walks of life and very different beliefs. But they all had something to give to me: a little piece of the puzzle.

It was up to me to put all those puzzle pieces together, learn why I got ill in the first place and learn how I can get better. My individual path to health. And this journey, I will share more and more through Feel Good Space. Because that is what the puzzle pieces created.

My very own Feel Good Space. With health, love, inspiration and energy.

If you suffer from chronic fatigue and you want to have a talk, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. Just remember, I can only tell you what I experienced, it will be up to you to find how this can help you.
