Many people ask me why I started with Young Living and essential oils in general.  I wanted to share a little of my wow moment.

At 30 years old I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.  My body continued to deteriorate to the point where I could no longer walk.  I was basically bed ridden for around 5 months until it got to the point one morning where (TMI) I lost badder control.  By the time I was driven to the hospital, I couldn't even sit up.  By some miracle, the back specialist just happened to be there that day.  He took a look at my MRI and said I needed emergency surgery because I basically had no spinal cord space left and had developed Cauda Equina Syndrome.  After a very long recovery and being prescribed pretty much every pain medication ever made, I was still in pain and was a walking zombie.

I decided enough is enough and checked myself into a detox center to go cold turkey on all my meds!  Mind you I was the only one there for medications I was prescribed and not abusing.  I went through 2 months of the worst withdrawals of my life.  I didn't sleep for 15 days!!  Once everything was out of my system, I realized that I wasn't in any more pain than I was before, but I was finally thinking clearly.

This started me on trying to find ways to convert to all things natural.  I was able to find natural ways to combat everything except pain.  That continued to linger.

One day I was at a homeschool convention and 2 awesome Young Living girls were there.  This is where my world changed with Peppermint!  They applied it neat to my areas of discomfort, and my eyes were opened.  I found relief for the first time ever! 

I wish I hadn't waited as long as I did to get a kit, because it has really changed my whole family's lives.  I am walking upright today because of them!  

I hope my story inspires you in some way.  If you are dealing with something similar, know that there is hope at the end of the tunnel.
