In honor of Mother’s Day this weekend, I wrote a letter to my mom, thanking her for her role in my recovery from panic attacks.
Here’s the link to my published story on the website called Further Food:
I was a little nervous to have my mom read it, wondering what her reaction would be. I had nothing to worry about. She loved it! Mom told me she had tears in her eyes and that it was the perfect Mother’s Day gift. She had no idea that something she said to me years ago spurred on my decision to seek medical help. I had the biggest smile on my face, hearing her gush about the letter, and how amazing it feels to be so important in my life.
I want to tell you a little about the website called Further Food . When I first checked it out, I immediately connected to their philosophy of natural ways to feel better. I believe healthy eating is a crucial part of overall well-being, along with exercise and a stress-free (or stress-reduced) lifestyle.
Further Food’s mission statement is “Helping You Eat Better, Feel Better, Naturally.” It’s made up of a community of nutritionists, cooks, doctors, and health heroes. They list medical conditions, and you click on one that relates to you, and get recipes for foods that are beneficial for your condition. In my case, anxiety.
I’m looking forward to this weekend… Mackenzie and Talee are coming home and tonight I’m making a special dinner for my mom to start the weekend celebration!
Happy Mother’s Day!
