    How I Avoided Prednisone Withdrawal And Its Side Effects

    in Health

    A crazy thing happened to me last month. I ran out of prednisone and had to stop taking it, cold turkey.


    Many of you know that you don't just go off prednisone cold like that. You're supposed to wean yourself slowly, or risk serious withdrawal symptoms.


    In prednisone withdrawal, you can experience fatigue, flu-like symptoms, mood dips, inflammation and swelling, among other symptoms. 


    All of these symptoms flare up while your body gets used to making its own cortisol again.


    Some quick background info on me: Seventeen years ago my diagnosis was autoimmune disease. Over the years, my symptoms have included rheumatoid arthritis in every joint of my body including my neck and rib cage, along with brain and nervous system symptoms, skin rashes, hormone imbalances, etc. Some doctors have told me that my autoimmune disease was triggered by lyme disease, and is now considered chronic lyme disease. 


    It's complicated, I know. What else is new? 


    So anyway, back to the prednisone. I was almost off of it, finally, after using it for a flare in symptoms that I experienced this past winter. 


    I ran out on a Friday. I thought I had another full bottle in the bathroom cabinet somewhere. But I could not find it anywhere! My prescription didn't have any refills and my doctor's office wouldn't be open until Monday.


    I freaked out. This meant that my knees and fingers and wrists were going to swell. I was going to get night chills and a sore throat.


    I went into emergency mode and...

    How To Have A Million Dollars By Your 65th Birthday

    in Education

    Dear friends,

    It is painful to tell our true story because we can see the results of this truth all around us.  Even in our own lives and families. Here are 8 mental obstacles we must stand, face and conquer to do more than just survive, so we can thrive. 

    Our community's money story is painful because:
    1. we do not plan for a prosperous future, we hope & pray
    2. we do not seriously implement a plan, we talk about it
    3. we are ignorant due to lack of knowledge
         (we reject the knowledge when offered)
    4. we are unwilling to change and grow to succeed
    5. we value the opinions of those who don't know or care
    6. we've been conditioned - unconsciously taught lack
    7. we let that conditioning cause us to make excuses
    8. we wait until it's too late, from the cradle to the grave

    Here’s an example of AMAZING: You can have $1 million in the bank on your 65th birthday, here’s what you would need to save each month depending on your age when you start.  Together we can create the cash flow to do this. These figures assume an interest rate of 10%.

    25 years old - $160/month
    35 years old - $440/month
    45 years old - $1,317/month
    55 years old - $4,822/month
    60 years old - $13,200/month

    Don't wait.  Let's get together to change this story one family at a time starting with you and those you know. Let's do  AMAZING prosperity!


    Best wishes for a prosperous & happy future,

    Robin

    Embracing Your Shadow with EFT

    in Self Help

    You have probably already heard about having a "shadow". Our shadow is our “darker side”, or the part of ourselves that we either try to hide, deny or disown. It is based in fear and is made up of the darkest parts of our subconscious mind.


    Our shadow can get in the way of forming healthy relationships. It can sabotage our success. It can keep us from knowing our True Self. And it can keep us feeling small and powerless.


    During our program we’ll be taking a look at some of the tools that the shadow uses, such as procrastination, self-judgment, control, perfectionism and people pleasing. Using EFT with a volunteer “client” we will demonstrate how our shadow can be embraced and how we can show up differently as our True Self, standing in our Authentic Power.


    If you want to learn more about your shadow, and how it could be sabotaging your life, you are in the right place. By the end of this program, you will understand how your shadow operates, how you hide it and deny it, and how you can embrace it and lessen its grip on your life.


    I'm Judy Wolvington, and  It is my passion to help you build self-mastery and personal empowerment. The more connected you are to your Authentic Self, the more you’re able to be proactive, deliberate, and mindful about your thoughts, beliefs, and actions. From that place of power you can embark on new directions in your life, your relationships, and your business. Please visit my website: http://UnleashYourAuthenticPower.com where you can claim your free gift, your Unleash Your Power Blueprint.
