Sometimes I feel like such a hypocrite because I’ve always been an advocate for self acceptance yet I’ve struggled to accept a few things about myself for a while. If I were to delve into all of them, it would literally be a book. One of those things has been my fluctuating weight. This is a result of the hypotension that I’m suffering from. I chose to use the word suffering because that’s exactly how I feel. Hypotension is low blood pressure which is more dangerous than high blood pressure. On a daily basis, I suffer from one illness if not all of them at the same time. Low hormonal levels, migraines, dizziness, fainting, bleeding(non stopping periods, I could literally go on my period the whole year),loss of appetite. And these are just a few of the things that I go through. In order to ‘manage’ all this, I have to take some medication and supplements(which is exhausting). These medications make me gain weight and I hate it. Also, without these medications, I instantly bleed and it could go on for months, that’s how bad it is. Anyway, instead of being depressed about it, I started to accept this and work towards it positively. I’ve been trying to find more organic ways of dealing with my health without having to rely on medications. I’ve been taking more full body pictures and embracing my body. I’ve decided to sign up to a gym and I’ve decided to love myself even more. This kind of mindset makes my life so much easier and it makes it much easier for me to enjoy my studies, my job, my family and my other blessings.
