About orange healing
Hi there and welcome to orange healing. My goal in writing is to share my thoughts and daily struggles that a great many may share with me. From racing thoughts and negative feelings, to everyday hopes and dreams. This is a safe space where anyone, including myself can ask questions and share your experiences from everyday life. And, I hope we are both better because of it.
Why Listen to Me?
I am not important and what I say isn’t important. But, what WE say IS important. I offer the opportunity to bring up some uncomfortable conversations, pick at them and to try to figure out what can be changed. To share together our experiences with everyday life by how each of us cope and maintain a healthy balance.
So this July it has been 3 years since I had a nervous breakdown. I locked myself inside of the house not leaving for 6 weeks. I thought people were out to get my family and I, and I jumped at every noise. Crazy right? But what led up to this and how can I stop it from happening again?
Almost 3 years of awesome therapy and medication, talks with family and friends, I realize I’m better…but I am not there yet. I have a very supportive husband and mother, but this has been hell on them. I know it, but sometimes I can’t help my feelings. I communicate in such a way that it can be a little overwhelming at times. I am trying to reign it in.
So, in a nutshell, this will be my outlet. Please, take advice with a grain of salt and feel free to share also. I want to share my experiences with others, because I would not wish what I went through on my own worst enemy.
I have always enjoyed helping others. That, I believe is one of the main reasons I am here on this earth. If you are sick, I will research it to death for you. If you are hurting, I can feel it. If you are laughing and having a great time, I internalize that too. But this can be challenging.
I have been told, I need to work on my boundaries. I practiced as a massage therapist for 10 years and I always felt I had a reponsibility to help. I didnt realize how much of a responsibility it really was. The work I did not only affected the body, but also the mind. I had the most amazing results when patients opened their mind to new treatments and allowed me to do what I thought was right.
Finding the right words to convey what I am trying to say doesn’t come easy to me though. In any wellness position, you have to be a great communicator in discussing changes after treatment and what customers can do to maintain. This is another reason for my blog, to learn to communicate and to stay positive, by my motivation in helping others and learning along the way.
So The Main Goal
The main goal of this website is a place to share daily challenges, opportunities for growth and anything else that is important to you. Please remember to be kind and treat everyone with respect and dignity. The more open minded we can be the better. Even if recommendations seem childish, too simple or ordinary, sometimes they are the best ones you can find!
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
