The most disheartening this a doctor told me was that I would end up in a wheelchair by age 30. I'm over that now and not in a wheelchair at all. I have realized now that I became gluten intolerant at age 12 and suffered migraines at 15. I can't remember what would have triggered the gluten intolerance at age 12 but I do remember what happened to cause the migraines. I also felt depression for the first time and became extremely hard and critical on myself. I acknowledge what happened and want to let it go, but how can I truly let it go? And make sure I have?

You were very astute to see how we tend not to honor our own thoughts, emotions or experiences as much as we tend to offer that respect to others. That has now changed for you. Congratulations on new beginnings! Click here for the full thread I'm feeling a little down today. I know life can be wonderful but I left my second marriage last year (another bad choice in husband) and have a wonderful boyfriend but I can hardly see him and often feel lonely. I am trying to achieve a lot at work and live in a new city so it's hard to make 'real' friends. Sometimes it is the case of why bother. I've been through so much and life is just a constant circle.
