When Kerry Jefferies of EmotionalAutoimmunity.com asked if I was willing to do an interview, my immediate answer was “yes.” The emotional aspects of living with and healing chronic illness is something that I’m passionately invested in, both in my personal healing journey, and in how I express my experience with others.
One of the hardest things I’ve done as part of my Whole Self recovery has been to come home to my Body. It wasn’t until I starting moving back, little by little, into my truest home–this amazing vessel–that I realized how absent I’d been from it. My up bringing and culture taught me to see my Body as something separate and problematic. As a girl, I internalized certain messages about what it meant to have a feminine physical form, and what I had to do in order to control it’s organic wildness.
