Stressing, sweating, spinning

This is my foe

The one I’ve been waiting my whole life to fight

Or is it the one I’ve been fighting my whole life?

And waiting…

Waiting for the bell, the permission to step back and breathe

To regroup, to recount my losses and recover them

To have the crowd take its eyes from me for a moment

as I use the water to hide my tears

While waiting…

Unseen, unheard, unknown

This is my foe

The one that I must conquer

Over whom victory is a bell away

Just waiting…

This is my foe

Who looks at me

Inside me

Through me

My foe is without

or is it within?

And waiting…

Spinning, showing me

That my foe is me


About LawsOnHealth Wellness

My organs were shutting down, the specialist said. I didn’t hear much of anything after that. The words ‘shutting down’ meant imminent death, in my mind, fraught with horrible pain. I envisioned myself unable to control my faculties and being left in a hospice to moan my last few days. It did not help that the doctors did not know what was wrong with me. On top of all the drugs they prescribed which made me more ill, they did an EMG (such long needles!) MRI's, an endoscopy, and CT scans. Major surgery came next but was later determined to have been unnecessary, after all. That day, hearing those words from the specialist brought me to the river's edge; I would take no more drugs! Instead, I would take my health in hand. Now, I am well, and a trained naturopathic physician, holistic health coach, and colon hydro-therapist. All around us, there is a renewed surge in alternative health and I am excited to help clients reach their goals. Are you at the edge of the river?
