I want to start this out by saying, that this is my story. It was my biggest kept secret. I hid the truth of what really happened that night, because for a long time- I wasn't even sure it constituted as assault I suffered for months and pushed down, bottled up and allowed my attack to remain a silent joy stealer in my life. Even now, I still have flash backs, And I question it all the time.
When we think about getting healthy, most people turn to diet changes and excessive exercise routines. We collectively as humans have been brainwashed to the idea that healthy looks a certain way. The to be healthy, you have to weigh a certain amount. Woman, and young girls especially fall victim to this dangerous mind trap.

I know first hand, how hard it is to maintain important relationships while also juggling full time work or schooling. The friends we make as kids that we fall in love with platonic or not; We think they will last forever. But as we grow up we start slowly drifting apart. Then you become a 20 something workaholic who fantasies about fancy trips to Europe, skydiving and all the adventures you can fathom. Only to realize that you have no one to share those experiences with. the girls you would spend countless weeks with during the summer, planning your lives together no longer talk to you. How lonely that feeling can be. Knowing that in this whole world, the three people you loved the most seem to no longer love you. And even now, with social media connecting billions of people around the world instantly, It doesn't fill that void. A Person through a screen doesn't fill that desire to love and be loved. It does not generate, that deep feeling of connection with people that is essential to survive on a regular day. Now throw this crazy Corona virus pandemic into the mix. People are running around like headless chickens. Buying all the toilet paper and hand sanitizer like its going to save them from the heavyhearted feeling of total isolation.
so let me start by giving some of my personal background when it comes to why I eat (90%) paleo.
