It sure can strip you of who you are and what you knew about yourself, can’t it? Even basic things like having a shower, or making it to a therapist appointment can be a miracle!
When you're in that dark place, it feels almost impossible to find the pathway back into the light. Speaking from personal experience, it can be a long and soul-sucking process.
BUT… I can also tell you that with the right help, it is absolutely possible to rise into a thriving life of greater joy, ease and grace.
The sickness story
When my son was in the process of being diagnosed with a rare condition, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (I also discovered EDS underpinned my own health battles), and later my daughter’s tumour, we spent mind-numbing years immersed in assessments, tests, and appointments. EVERYTHING in our life was focussed on our illnesses.
Although completely necessary for a while, at some point I then got stuck in the story of sickness. Our dis-ease became a family identity and everything revolved around our ‘sickness story’.
One day it hit me - we had to BREAK FREE! In order for us to progressively get better and level up into the thriving, enjoyable life that I desperately wanted for us, I had to stop focusing on what was wrong, and shift gears into what was right!
We learned that taking control of MINDSET is the first ESSENTIAL step in getting well. Shifting your attitude out of ‘messy’ and into ‘mindful’ starts with acknowledging with raw honesty where you’re at, and that perhaps it’s time to get some dedicated help.
This is where a holistic nurse comes in!
A holistic nurse covers all the bases - mind, body and soul. Their focus is to facilitate, empower and encourage health and healing for your WHOLE being, helping you reach and maintain your life goals and intentions, holistically!
Holistic nurses are fully trained in traditional nursing, plus many different complementary health modalities too. They combine services like counselling, life coaching, massage, naturopathy, bio-energy healing (and many more) alongside standard nursing care such as assessments, care team/support coordination, and advocacy and mediation/interpretation between clients and their medical practitioners.
With a more holistic approach to wellbeing, a holistic nurse may identify where you are stuck in your ‘sickness story’ and help you ignite the freedom to rewrite your story in a more positive way!
