A LOVE LETTER TO MY BROKEN BODY

Dear Broken Body,

Since it is Valentine’s Day, I am writing this letter to make amends with you.  Through the years I have not been completely supportive of you.  I am sorry and would like to move forward.

Several years ago you started beating yourself up with Auto-immune disorders causing high blood sugars (Diabetes) and an imbalanced metabolism (Thyroid disease). I found medicine for you.  You were happy but we would fight when I would forget to give you the medicine or when you didn’t like the food I gave you.  Then there came a time when even though I was doing everything right we still fought.  This confused me and I got depressed.  It was such a dark time for me that I didn’t know what was real anymore.  But thanks to our God I was able to think clearly again.  I found the right treatment for you, got help myself, and I learned what was needed to make you content.

Things were okay for us for a while but then you started abusing yourself again now causing Psoriatic Arthritis and Fibromyalgia.  I said to myself, “Oh no!  I thought we were happy but things are out of control again.  Why are you doing this to us?  I don’t understand!  It makes me angry and sad!”  It turns out you were never totally pleased with me because our communication was not open.  But, after more therapy, I understood what was causing your pain.  I wasn’t treating you properly.  I ignored your needs, talked negatively to you, and didn’t nurture you enough.  Now I realize that you cannot do everything I want you to do and I am okay with that.  I accept you for exactly the way you are.  I will take care of you better in the future and I hope we can live in harmony.

With love,

Your Conscious Mind
