View Full Version : New From Michigan
11-26-2007, 10:58 AM
Hello everyone! I am a 34 year old woman with a 2 year old baby boy in Michigan. I actually first heard about and lurked these forums when I was pregnant with my kiddo and considered doing the raw diet then but..ended up gestational diabetic and was just too overwhelmed to emotionally handle yet another big change in my life at that point.
So now...2 years later, much study, much lurking...I am committing myself to taking care of -me- and my health finally. I've some health complications, PCOS, borderline diabetic, depression, anxiety, and weight issues, and mostly I'm just sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I am after all my research, positive that a mostly organic, raw, nutrient filled way of living will help me with all those issues, and I'm so excited to get started!
Feel free to give me friendly advice, I hope to be able to offer the same eventually, along with support and friendship!

geez, sounds like me when i had a two year old! my daughter is almost five now, and the vibrancy in my life associated with my own commitment to take care of my health, and finding raw foods, has improved both our lives 100x over.
what us moms have to learn is basic "flight safety": you gotta put your own oxygen mask on (self care) before you put on your childs! (otherwise you pass out and you're BOTH in trouble...).
good luck on your flight into raw foods! see you around the boards...

*waves to her 'neighbor'* Hey Morn!
I'm in Southwest Michigan, Kalamazoo-ish! I so want to visit the Creative Health Institute near Union City, I only just recently found out there was a raw foods center so close!
I am in the S.E. suburbs of Detroit. Bummer! Oh well yeah I have heard of CHI but have never been there. Anyway glad to have you with us!:)
