So this week’s podcast is about highlighting the bizarre procedures that women with endometriosis are forced to go through during their endometriosis years.
In the beginning, girls turn to teenagers and assume that pain with a period is expected.
“That’s just part of being a woman dear”, your mother or granny might have mistakenly told you.
The journey then begins when a woman, having endured pain for years and in some cases, decades, starts to think that perhaps this consistent pain that interferes with her life every month, is not normal.
It is a sad state of affairs that…
This week I have been working with a fantastic group of unique people preparing some exciting new material and events for next year. More will be revealed in January 2021.
However, it was not an easy decision to get here!
It has been more of a combination of years of analysis paralysis plus a petulant perfectionist.
Before I explain more, I should explain what is meant by these two phrases.
The phrase ‘analysis paralysis’, describes a situation where an individual overanalyses or overthinking a situation so much that they find no solution or take no course of action and…
Grief is not a disorder, nor a disease or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve. Earl Grollman
So it has been a few weeks since I last emailed or did my Podcast, and I am wondering how you are.
I had hoped to communicate sooner, but life has its way of taking a few twist and turns and testing my methodology about handling and embracing our emotions, that I talk about.
You see my 16-year-old Labrador Ginty passed away…
How To Step Away from Domestic Abuse & Emotional Mistreatment; Slowly, Safely and Securely.
So last few weeks were more sombre podcasts in which I attempted to explain the reality and mistreatment for some women and children behind closed doors in their own home.
While I normally like to offer a positive perspective of life by sharing all the incredible Endometriosis success stories, and be an upbeat and positive person, this subject has profoundly affected me, and many of the women I work have worked with.
So I felt that it was important to share what may be impairing…
Abuse Isn’t Always Physical
I discussed in my last podcast the sensitive subject of domestic abuse or emotional mistreatment and how few people are aware of its existence in our society in the Western world.
I believe this is the case because the word ‘abuse’ may feel such a loaded term on it’s own & it may evoke a feeling of resistance and distance for many.
As I have mentioned before, abuse isn’t just physical, and there are many other types of abuse other than the ones I listed last week.
Many types of non-physical abuse encompass the degrading…
You may have heard me mention on several podcasts now that I believe, in relation to the chronic condition Endometrosis, that it is The Five P’s Poisons (Produce, Products, Property, Past & People) all combined, that makes Endometriosis such a challenging condition to put in remission, and why the conventional medical route of pain killers, drugs and surgery may aggravate and irritate the already inflamed body.
I have touched on the subject of poisonous or toxic people and their effect on others in the past and how in some extreme cases may actually affect the physical and emotional health…
Millions of women every year suffer from chronic pelvic pain with their monthly cycles and think that ‘it is normal’ to suffer.
Mother, grandmothers and many women from down and across the family ancestral line, may have shared from a young age, that pain with a period; “Well, that’s just part of being a woman dear”.
But it’s not.
Pain with a monthly cycle is not normal and a clear sign that something needs closer attention.
The something that needs closer attention is what I refer to as The 5 P’s (Poisons; Produce, Products, Property, Past or…
It’s All Going To Be Okay In The End.
This will be an uplifting rally call to appeal to your waining spirit and soul which may be crying out for some light in a dark time.
So to reassure you, for millions of years us humans have had to overcome abject and dire situations and conditions.
Our ancestors if alive would testify to that.
We are always continually evolving and growing — and learning.
I was flying to USA in January and noticed how I was complaining to my children via facetime what terribly poor hygiene people had.
Self Love Is Best
This Friday I encourage you whether you are in a relationship or not to celebrate Galentine’s day and celebrate who you are as a girl or a woman.
Now — I am not broadcasting this short podcast to be a cynic or wet blanket over the day especially as I am enjoying life as a single woman.
But facts are facts and I think worth being aware of.
Worth noting that this day is a marketer and retailers dream. Over $13 Billion are spent for Valentine’s Day with the average person spending $150.
Well, what an emotional weekend!
Invigorating and stretching and inspiring and emotional; all coming to a head at the end of a four day business conference.
You see Emotions and me haven’t always been the best friends however…
Those pesky emotions were something I used to have great struggles with for as long as I can remember.
I could feel them rise up with the force of a fiery volcano and they frighten me to death as I wrestled and struggled to control them or keep them at bay.
I was only ever comfortable with the one emotion called…
