When I first arrived in Sheeba’s office, I was exhausted and entirely drained from seeing so many different medical practitioners. I was suffering from chronic fatigue that made everything seem like a chore. In addition to this, I was also dealing with excessive thirst, damaged vocal cords, constant headaches, sore muscles and joints and terrible blood work. As a 25-year-old Primary School teacher who hates being sick, I’d spent years convincing myself that it was reasonable to return home from work too tired and drained to consider doing anything. I was sleeping for as many hours as possible, never felt rested and would frequently cry from sheer exhaustion. As the months passed and I failed to improve, I eventually took myself to see the GP. After 27 doctors appointments, numerous tests and scans and a spiralling list of diagnoses, none of which seemed related, I felt overwhelmed by everything I was being told and the fact that no one was able to connect them all. That was, until, my appointment with Sheeba. Fast forward a few months, and with Sheeba’s guidance, I now feel better than ever. I have a clarity of thought that I have never experienced before and endless amounts of energy. I wake up in the morning and no longer feel like crying because I’ll have to make it through the entire day without going back to bed. Most importantly, for me, I have the energy to want to do things. I want to do well at my job, and I want to spend time with my friends and visit my family. All those around me have noticed a difference, and many have commented on how much better I look, most notably the ‘sparkle in my eyes’. Sheeba has given me a new sense of life, and for that, I can’t thank her enough. At 25 I finally feel like I’m living and I’m so excited about what life will bring.
