Wanted to share something that may help you all if you are currently struggling.
My whole life, I have been able to completely read people whether I want to or not.
I couldn't be in crowds of people, go shopping, or watch much tv. I also see things in people, from pictures, houses, and over time, having this always on, it wears a person out.. It was hard to make friends, I was attracted to relationships with people that needed to be fixed (which always happened, the guy would end up being better off when we broke up because of the help offered and me damaged), and I was ALWAYS tired and ALWAYS in pain.
I couldn't go outside around people, sleep at night, exercise, I had hormonal imbalances resulting in cysts, hair loss, bone loss (before the age of 30), losing weight to the point of being underweight, and constantly being sick off an on. I was depressed.
I couldn't look at people when I was talking to them because there were words and colors coming off of them about them, and usually it was their current problems, what kind of person they were, and what they are meant to do in life.
However, after I ended up in the hospital and after them not knowing how to help me, that's when I was completely done.
I just ate better.
It probably sounds like a trick, but that is it. I already wasn't able to eat wheat, dairy or dyes, so I just kept that up and tried eating strictly actual food. When I did, my body healed itself.
Not only that, but I was able to handle these "things" coming from people a lot better. Still a big struggle every day, but not as debilitating.
I make sure to eat a LOT of healthy fats like nuts, oils, and salmon, dry beans, water, fruits and vegetables, potatoes, and squashes.
I don't eat anything with GMOs, known ingredients to cause hormonal imbalances, carcinogens, dairy, or processed food or sugar. No cheezits, smarties at night, frosted flakes, candy or canned beans (my downfalls). All fresh and prepped meals.
I'm not a part of some exclusive weird vegan club or anything, i'm just doing what seemed right for me, and I wanted to share it with you guys being most of us are really sensitive. <3

I have mental clarity, I ACTUALLY SLEEP, my narcolepsy is not as bad, no debilitating cramps every month, no pit stains (sweating) year round, my eyelashes, nails and hair is growing a ton, i'm happier, and better able to meditate about things to make better choices. Not as many physical aches, my skin feels nicer, and I feel more still overall. Best of all, I am off ALL MY MEDS.
I'm aware that some people are just fine eating conventional food and there's nothing wrong with that, I just wanted to offer perspective for the sensitives out there.
This kind of eating takes a little bit to stick to, you will need at least one person to help you if this is a new thing, and you may fall off the wagon a few times (I did much more than twice). BUT once you reach the point where you start looking at food differently, it's the best feeling in the world.
Food really is medicine guys. Be well ♡

I know this may not be something that can be done at the current moment for some people, but if you have small goals like working on a meal of the day or cutting out a certain thing, that is also progress. The best thing is the thing that works for your body. Follow healthy food blogs and people who eat how you want to! It makes it easier to reinforce and see the benefits. Forget the crash diets and cleanses because they don't work.
And leave the negative people in your life behind. The ones trying to tempt you away from your goal, or go to places that aren't a part of your goal. You will find that your good friends will stick with you, push you, and support you on your journey, and build you up.
Also, if you need recipes or ideas, I can offer some. Being on a budget in school, I know how to put things together to taste good :]
And feel free to post your experience if you have gone through the same thing recently or want to start!
