How It All Began...

My journey into natural and alternative health officially began in 2006.  I was in extremely ill health.  I constantly got sick.  And not just mildly sick, but every winter it was bronchitis or pneumonia or BOTH.  I had no energy.  I hurt everywhere.  It was so bad, that I was housebound.  Needless to say, 2006 was one of the darkest years of my life.

I had been giving mainstream medicine a chance for about 5 years.  And every few months, I got worse, gained a few more symptoms, got on a few more pharmaceutical meds, generally kept getting worse, although I was under delusion for the longest time that my conditions were "well controlled."  By the time I reached the end of 2006, I felt near death.  I was wildly desperate.  I did not know what to do.  And I had no idea where to start.  The doctors were not giving me any hope that I could cling to.  I felt like I was in a dark hole, and I felt my heart sinking, as I did not know if it was possible to get out, as deep as I was.

I only knew in my heart that there had to be SOMETHING I could do.  My life couldn't be over in my 20's.  I just felt like I was made for MORE.  So finally, I made the decision that changed my life forever.  I decided to "fire" my doctors.  And I went in search for truth.  And I'm SO glad I made that choice and jumped into the unknown.

You may be where I was, overwhelmed and unsure where to start.  Your problems may not have been as severe as mine, or who knows?  Yours could be much worse than what I have had to suffer.  I just want to take some time from my life and start to give back to help others who may be in a similar place to where I have been and are unsure where to start.  For you, it may not even be your health that is in jeopardy.  It may be something else, like finances.  Or maybe, it is relationships you are struggling with - dating, marriage, parenting, simple friendships or possibly your immediate family is driving you bonkers.  I have struggled to find truth in it all.  And become the black sheep in the process.

However, it has all been worth it.  I have no regrets in my life.  Instead of hiding my face in shame, I am reveling in being the black sheep that I am.  I love who I am.  I love my life.  I am embracing the royalty I have been called to by my Father, who is King of all.  I hope and pray to encourage you all in your personal journeys, as I would not be where I am without those who have encouraged me along the way.

Are there specific questions any of you have?  Any certain topics you'd like to hear about?  There's so much to share!  If there is anything specific you'd like covered first, email me and let me know!  Until I hear from you, I'm just going to see what comes up from my heart and share things that have made a difference for me and my family, and hopefully that wisdom and experience helps some of you out there on your journey.

I am ever, and proudly,

The Black Sheep Princess
