Catch 22

I applied for a part time customer service position for a non profit recreational center whose mission is to enable the disabled to live in adapted housing, empower gainful employment and advocate a social, viable and visible life. I was so moved by this that I thought it a good idea to mention the fact that I am disabled in my cover letter. Where as I am not worried about explaining my quickly improving situation in a face to face interview, I regret stating it, however brief in my cover letter.  If I don’t hear from them by the 19th, then I know I’ve been passed up. Ordinarily, I would never put that in a cover letter, I would reserve it for the interview. Who knows, I might be surprised and get an invite for an interview despite that.

Next month, I’ve decided to go back to Wahls Paleo (level II), Wahls Paleo Plus (level III) is proving to be too inflexible for my financial situation right now. It is true, that I eat less and only two meals a day, which should make for a lesser monthly grocery bill, yet I have found the bill to be the same. What is happening is that I am in and out of Ketosis due to lack of this and lack of that. Which can’t happen on this level. I’ve decided that I need the flexibility and the increase in food choices of the second level, for now. All the levels are Wahls compliant. I am compliant no matter which level I choose to do and I have experienced dramatic healing on all levels, besides, I miss fruit. I can’t stand smoothies without sweet fruit in them. There, decision made.

Why do I have to wait till next month, because I have $20 for the rest of the month and have to wait till then to replenish groceries. This is a very honest blog of my experience on the Wahls Protocol, good and bad. It is expensive. It can be made less expensive by buying in bulk, buying whole slaughtered pastured animals and using a large freezer, putting a garden into your back yard, investing in expensive equipment to make your own Kombucca teas and a Vitamix to make your own nut butters and other foods. The things that make it cheaper in the long run, cost a lot of money up front. My Doctor strongly suggested that I wait till all my rehabilitation is finished before I seek employment, because as he stated and I know to be true as well is that I will need all my energy to complete the numerous appointments, homework and the opportunity to gain that much more strength before I strike out. Hense, a catch 22.

Catch 22

A requirement that cannot be met until a prerequisite requirement is met, however, the prerequisite cannot be obtained until the original requirement is met.

 – Urban Dictionary

My greatest asset is my tenacity, which will see me through this. In the mean time, my walking, stamina, moving, thinking and talking are getting better everyday.

Marching forth!

 

Bonne Sante
