I think I have learned how to accept myself.

Many time in my life I found myself bullied or gossiped about but I didn’t realize how sad I had felt in the past. I started getting chiropractic care when I was in my mid-20s. I found two or three chiropractors and this first one I had experience I had with a female chiropractor was great but I am fine. I know God is with me wherever I am. I have been smoke free for almost six years this summer. I feel healthier and any time someone smokes around me I breathe in second hand smoke so I never have to breathe in second hand smoke. I know God is with me and I will pray more and seek spirituality. I made peace with my illness and even in the chaos I have a peace that passes my own understanding. I can pray to God and I can silence my inner critic. Voices are hard to hear and I no longer focus on the mean things they say. A friend of mine told me I should read the Psalms in The Holy Bible. I love writing poetry and I am a poet. I thought what an idea. I can pray to God and never have to be crippled by my fear again.
