    Hi, I have a chronic neurological disease that has no known cure and I'm really scared because this illness is what made me wake up from a life of living the bare minimum of my potential and now that I have woken up I can't do much. I'm 37 and very much want to heal and change my life. I have learned the hard way that healing takes patience and surrender. It seems to require a fine balance of action and inaction.

    I realize that I need to start where I am. My mental cognition has improved so I'm reading again. I also try to go for a walk every day. I sit on a grounding mat, do guided meditations, eat healthy and even try new recipes when I have the energy.

    I think the missing link is that I don't have support. For awhile I was attending as many group activities as possible but I had severe anxiety and the physical pain was overwhelming to the point where I couldn't enjoy anything. I also don't have a vehicle so it's hard to get around. My family is not close or healthy to be around. I don't have friends either.

    I'm wondering if anyone can give me feedback or ideas. To me, friendship is everything and to not have that makes it incredibly hard to improve my life.

    If I was you I would do a juice cleanse
    Go to a retreat where they put you on a juice fast.
    Then make sure to clear all stress from your life, watch lots of comedies
    Your body can't heal while in a depressed state
    The juice cleanse will alkalise your body which puts you in the optimum state for healing

    Hey thank you for your reply. I have done some juice cleanses and will continue to do them. I struggle a lot in this area but I'm becoming more disciplined. I have reduced a lot of stress but I'm not able to eliminate all external stresses so this is where I've utilized meditation. I also watch a lot of comedies and try to laugh every day. It's lonely though. I play with my cat and she makes me smile so that's nice. How long do you recommend I juice fast?

    The longest I've gone so far is 5 days however I did snack during the cleanse and was told 5 days is the max my body can handle at the moment. My goal is to go all 5 days without any snacking at all. I'm not sure if there are retreats in my area that do juice cleanses but I will look into it. I have no income right now so money is tight.

    Chronic neurological disorder, living alone, no near by family/support, no friends, no income.

    I remember one beautiful bollywood song:

    Duniya mein kitna gham hain
    Mera gham kitna kam hain
    Logo ka gham dekha to mein
    Apna gham bhul gaya


    English translation:

    So much grief and pain in world
    My pains are so less

    When i saw people's pain
    i forgot my own

    --------

    Are you taking medicines for your disorder ? if yes, would suggest please continue.


    Regards
