I started my journey here in late January early February. I was a mess from the pandemic and searching for something to calm my anxiety. I had dabbled with the craft in my late teens to early 30’s, I am now 58.
I cast my first real spell in May, (I had performed two cord cuttings prior but I see that as a release not wanting for something for myself); specifically the Mew Moon Money Spell posted on the website. I’m completely in shock and still don’t believe it happed. I have MS, I have a cognitive impairment, fatigue, balance issues etc. I go to the hospital twice a month for IViG infusions, I was fully vaccinated however I still do not have the antibodies to protect me from COVID-19 so I need to limit my exposure to people and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
My husband and I own a cooking school, and have for 11 years. So as you can imagine the pandemic really put a stop to that. We went form working 6-7 days a week to NOTHING!! It did teach us a lesson, we were working way too much! My husband also has a demanding day job. We had toyed with the idea of applying for SSDI prior to the pandemic but did not think we had a chance of qualifying.
So I applied for Ssdi in March 2021 and holy crap I was approved a few days ago. Did not even go to court! Business is picking up at a rapid pace and we will need to hire someone to do some of the things I’m not capable of doing. Meantime our adult daughters are helping.
What a relief!! I was such a mess I was actually tearing apart my skin from scratching my arms are all scared but its ok!! It’s all ok, it’s all going to be ok!!
Thanks to all the great folks involved in this site, all of the people who post in this forum. It has truly brought me peace. I now meditate daily and I’m off meds for anxiety. Sleeping better (thank you Mugwort and Chamomile). Life is so much better.
So who do I thank? What gods or goddesses, should I make an offering. I don’t know why but I feel like I should but don’t know where to start. I’m so grateful for this blessing, I know I’m lucky because there are so many folks out there struggling with so many things and the pandemic is just adding to their stress and struggles.
HUGS to all of you!!
