Adrienne’s Self Care Story
Hello Anana, I just wanted to share my story. So I believe we met in October when I began having migraines more regularly. I told you and the other women who came to the AfriSalsa session and Self Care Support Group. You then lovingly gave me your self care soap that read, “I welcome healing in my life.” I kept it on my bathroom sink and used it religiously. Until now that lemon grass sent makes me think of healing.
Unfortunately after the day that I shared my story I didn’t get better, but instead got worse. I ended up having to take a two and a half month medical leave from my job. The migraines became So debilitating that I literally could barely walk or talk. I went to several doctors before getting relief. The thing that stood out to me from the saying on my soap, was that I should focus more of my energy on my healing than I should my illness. As my medical leave continued I slowly began focusing my time on Loving me. I focused my time on caring for me. I decided not to worry about my future AS MUCH. (I’m a work in progress). It has now been close to two months since I’ve had a migraine and I thank God! I’m not sure if it was intentional that the self love soap that you gave me today read, “I am beautiful AND MY BODY IS HEALTHY!” When I read it again at home it almost brought tears of joy to my eyes as it is SO applicable to my life today! Thank you. I pray that God continues to bless your ministry! Adrienne E. Rowe
