Recently, it has started seeming like I have reached a dead-end with conventional, Western medicine. I go to my doctors now, and it’s a lot of “well, since you’re not getting worse, just keep doing what you’re doing” while I think but I’m not getting any better either. Something had to change!
When I sprained my MCL (a ligament in my knee) in February and was struggling to heal, I was contacted by a wonderful doTERRA representative!
Just got back from physical therapy, and it turns out I sprained my MCL (most likely, if it's not better soon I need to go to the doc). Wonderful 😰 . How did I sprain it? Taking the photos for my blog post! Follow the link in my bio and look at the slideshow that's in the post. Then come back and comment with a guess as to which position is the one that most likely sprained my knee! (It will probably be pretty obvious.) . If you get it right, I'll give you a shout out in my Insta story later! Ready? Go! … … #SprainedMCL #SprainedKnee #oops #KneePain #AceBandage #MCLsprain #EDS #EDSHT #EDS3 #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #JHS #JointHypermobilitySyndrome #JointProblems #ChronicConditions #InvisibleIllness #MakingInvisibleVisible
Decided to try a lidocaine patch (cut up in pieces) on my knee. It's still painful and has visible swelling, though the swelling is mostly on the outside now. My kneecap is off center too, but I'm hoping that is just temporary due to the swelling. . Hopefully, reducing the pain signals will make my body stop flipping out over the joint. So far (it's been about 4 of 12 hours) is not helping nearly as much as I'd like, but it is helping a little. I can't get my brace on over the top of the patches, so I'm trying not to walk much. . I definitely need to do a better job taking care of my knees… A right knee injury is what triggered my fibro in the first place. I've also had various knee problems since I was a kid. Ugh. … … #JointProblems #JointHypermobilitySyndrome #JointPain #KneePain #BadKnees #MCLsprain #WeakKnees #lidocaine #PainPatch #ChronicPain #ChronicConditions #InvisibleIllness #Spoonie #SpoonieLife #MakingInvisibleVisible
Sally (sallys_oil_adventure on Instagram) reached out, simply asking if I would like a free sample of doTERRA’s Deep Blue Rub because it helps her dramatically with her rheumatoid arthritis. I’ve been approached by other doTERRA sellers before, and they were always pretty pushy, so I kindly turned them down. But after I told Sally I was extremely impressed with how fast the Deep Blue worked, she didn’t try to sell me anything and just told me how happy she was! Later (about a month), she followed up to see if I was still feeling better and if I needed anything more as far as doTERRA was concerned. We started talking, and she was extremely low-pressure and super patient! She answered all of my questions (tedious, I’m sure) and even wanted to get to know me as a person outside of oil use! I was so excited by how she was treating me, that I decided to talk to her about the business side of things. And, here I am!
I really do believe that oils can help me achieve the life I’m looking for. I think that they can probably help you too!
