Life Falls Apart

Lately, I feel like my world is just falling apart. I already struggle with being very skinny to the point where my bones stick out and my body hurts when I lay down. I deal with constipation even though I get lots of fiber and drink tons of liquid.

But to add to that, I found out I have acid reflux which causes me to be extremely sick every morning because my stomach acid is climbing up towards my throat, and it's been happening for four years now. But it's just getting worse.

Maybe I brought this upon myself, but I don't know.

I find it hard to get enough sleep or have enough energy to even be happy.

And school doesn't help. It's a world of depression on its own.

And when I try to find answers, there's just too much black and white to ever find one.

I've looked into so many things. Maybe it's an intolerance to dairy. Maybe it's not. Maybe I'm eating too much processed junk. Maybe I'm not eating the way I should. But when it all falls apart, it seems hard to ever put back together.


I guess I do have one bit of good news to share. My family knows an editor in LA who's willing to look at my book and make suggestions. And if she likes it, she might even get it published for me. Might. I'm crossing my fingers as I hurry to finish the last bits of editing that need done. But with all the things the world has thrown at me, it's been hard to push myself to get this done. And I need to get it done.


Sorry that I haven't been blogging for awhile, and I'm not looking for sympathy. I'm looking for answers, and maybe one of you can help me.

  1. I've heard apple cider vinegar is good for acid reflux.
    Be careful though (as with all things), listen to your body.

    You may not find the answers you are searching for unless perhaps you are content with the present and are open to such new perspectives

    1. I actually have been using ACV, but the real raw kind. It has helped in so many ways with my body.

      And I really do believe our bodies know best, I mean, their the whole reason we still exist. It makes me so mad when people always go to the doctors for the answer because in return, you get a bottle of pills to "fix" the problem.

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
