I have lived with emotional issues throughout most of my childhood and adult life. When I was diagnosed as an adult, I knew that medication was not the route I wanted to go. I did not want chemicals tricking and manipulating my mind. So I pushed through, trying to see signs and coping own my own. It's hard, and my mom could see that. I was exhausted from fighting a constant battle these problems caused. It was also heartbreaking because the majority of my loved ones just couldn't understand what I was going through in my own mind, why I would get upset so easily, and how to give me emotional support.
My mom ordered me the Young Living kit hoping that this could give me some natural help and relief. At first I put the "calm" diffuser mix in. I was like "this smells nice, but I don't feel any calmer." Fast forward to about a week later. I was coming down from what had been an AMAZING day at work. Instead of just winding down though, I crashed. I felt emotionally overwhelmed and hyper sensitive. Then the train wreck began. I couldn't breathe. I couldn't think and yet at the same time couldn't stop thinking. I was scratching at my own skin like I had a rash because it was suffocating me and I just needed out! My husband went and hit the on button on my diffuser, and with the first smell of the blend, I began to immediately clam back down. Within minutes I was back to being okay! That was my "A-Ha!" moment.
I can see my future being almost easier with Young Living. I’m not handling this on my own anymore, I have help! That is an amazing feeling! Another awesome feeling is that I am able to naturally help my family. I am hopeful that I am going to be able to move my family into a more natural way of life with less and less chemicals! I am also hopeful that I will be able to help more like me learn how amazing and magical these oils are and that there is help to carrying the heavy load without chemicals.
