Community Creation in 2015

by Steven Wright

sunrise-2015

My heart was pounding… I was so excited. And then in one glance at the screen, it was all gone.

I was pissed.

There’s nothing more frustrating than showing up to a class and realizing that you already knew everything.

Unless you show up and the content being taught isn’t even what you signed up for (not cool).

This has happened to me way too many times…

Which is why I need to talk to you today. See, it’s January. It’s a new year. It’s a fresh start. It’s the year of taking action… and it’s Thursday. (I know, who cares about Thursday but I happen to like them.)

Jordan and I have been discussing our goals, dreams and plans for 2015. And it would be silly if we didn’t ask you specifically what we could help you with.

Please take 3 minutes to let us know here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Q33G2GT

But WHY?

“Why would I take time to do this for you?”

It’s the first question I’d ask myself when I get an email like this. And the answer is this: because there’s a chance we can help you with something right now.

And maybe, you’d like to get that help for free.

If that’s the case, Jordan and I are planning to do some free trainings this year and we need to know what you need help with. I hate wasting my time and the last thing I want to do is spend time creating something that doesn’t help you.

So, if you want some free training, take a few minutes and let us know what you need support with: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Q33G2GT

And by the way… It’s halfway through January… are you still sticking to your New Year’s Resolution? Tell me in the comments below. I’ll be here to interact on and off.

In case you’re wondering, I created a motto for 2015 instead of a resolution. It’s…

Warrior Up, Hippie Down.

Talk soon,

-Steve

This year I WILL pursue and find out what is wrong with my gut. I will NOT take an I DON”T KNOW for an answer anymore!!!! When I was younger, I just took the meds my Dr. gave me because it alleviated most of the pain. Recently, my Allopath (who is not an expert with digestive issues, but tries to help), put me on Armour due to my cortisol being out of whack, digestive enzymes to aid in digestion, and Xanax to relax my colon. I did good for a year and a half. I’m 5’3 and got up to 120lbs. Funny how us gut sick people jump for joy to gain weight, huh? I stopped my enzymes and Armour because my GI Dr. told me supplements are ridiculous and my TSH was 0.12 and I should not take the thyroid meds. It was not even 6 months later and I was back in the hospital. I put myself back on the med regimen. It didn’t work this time. My colon is too messed up right now. I finally asked my Dr. to test me for anything he has not tested me for yet. So far nothing. Just chronic colitis, chronic ilesuses, and blistering in colon that resembles diverticulitis (but isn’t). I’m so done with patching my symptoms. I’m ready to get more invasive if need be. Honestly, I think I have Neurogenic Bowel Dysfunction. I broke my sacrum and pelvis in 6 places when I was 19 from a car wreck. My intestines shut down then too. Had my stomach pumped for three days. Have NOT been able to have normal bowel movements since. Then, I had a C-section to add too the trauma, for a pregnancy I wasn’t supposed to have. But you know us women, if we are told we can’t have babies. We want them even more. I could only have one child and I wouldn’t trade the extra troubles I caused myself….ever. However, I do have to say. I am exhausted from my colon pain and my bowels perpetually shutting down, not emptying for days and then having days of diarrhea, after I finally empty. I WILL MAKE MYSELF FIGHT TO FIND OUT WHAT IS GOING ON. No matter how many doctors I need to see AND PISS OFF 😉

Hey Steve I had emailed you yesterday. I found out after I emailed you that I have severe inflammation and ulcers in small intestine. The doctor wants to do another regular endoscopy. I had one back in August of last year. It was good. Anyway, what can cause the small intestine to have inflammation and ulcers?

Hi Marisa, thanks for reaching out! Diet, lifestyle, and genetic factors can all play a role in our health. We suggest seeking out a program that addresses these factors (not including genetics, of course) and you can read more here: solvingleakygut.com
