Be your own best advocate

Listen to You. Listen to your body. Don’t do things because others tell you, do things that you know will help you feel good. You are your own best advocate. No-one knows you as you know yourself.

Does drinking bone broth help? Do it.
Does alcohol make you flare? Stop drinking.
Are you in a toxic relationship? End it.
Does cannabis relieve your pain? Go for it.
Are you less than satisfied with your doctor? Find a new one.

Trust your intuition. Make difficult decisions. Believe in yourself. Love yourself.
