Structuring my life and health AROUND my hormonal cycle is the only way I succeed at anything. I think I will always struggle with fatigue, anxiety, depression, weight management, and digestive issues. This doesn’t mean there’s necessarily something “wrong” with me. It’s a combination of genetics and my overly-stressful life. Sometimes, playing the cards you’ve been dealt is better than trying to find new ones. Being the best me I can be within my health limitations has done more for me than trying to pathologize and fix my limitations ever did.
This series is not about comparison or making moms feel guilty for not overcoming the “excuses” that keep them from maintaining a more healthy lifestyle. Our only goal is encouragement and rejoicing in the fact that we are all fearfully and wonderfully made by God – flaws, life circumstances, health problems, and all.
