“… After 25 years of misery, I fixed the problem with exercise….”

Do not give up, words on blackboard stock photographyI’ve just come to realize that I am a failure.  After all these years of thinking I was, for all intents and purposes, relatively “failure-free.”  O’what a fool I’ve been.  And for the naysayers….don’t get too excited, because I’m talking way above your head.  Here’s my failure:  I’ve always thought that I was relative healthy…but I’m not.  I’ve been on that “good’O’American” diet for centuries, and while I’ve never had to take prescription medicine before in my life, here I am now…taking about four prescribed medications, and four more over the counter goodies.  NO-MORE!!  I’m through.  For the last 25 years, I’ve suffered with RLS (restless-leg-syndrome).  Cept..mine is now “restless-body-syndrome.  I shake all night, every seven seconds….unless I take a pill, or patch, that tells my body..hey – don’t worry about it.  Well, I’ve discovered that the side effects are more than I want to deal with, so I’ve stopped the leg medicine cold-turkey on 1/1/14.  Since then, I exercise every evening at 10PM, and again at 11PM, and then hop in bed and sleep like a baby (almost…but close…considering).  Given that, I’ve stopped all the shake-rattle-and rolling.  After 25 years of misery, I fixed the problem with exercise; yet, not once during that period did anyone ever suggest exercise as a likely remedy.  Yes, and because of that…I no-longer feel like a failure.  I’m FREE.  That said, I’ve started a plant-food-diet several weeks ago, and already, I’ve lost 12 lbs.  I’m getting CONTROL of my body…by diet…my life.  After all…I was made in the image of GOD, and I’m not going to let Him down.  Genesis 1:29 And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.  …Blessings…cjlb…3/9/14
