I was bulimic for over 15 years. There are many symptoms of bulimics. The number one is a hoarse voice. No one unless they are sick has a voice as hoarse as a bulimic. Bulimic’s will lie and say that’s just the way their voice is. That is not the case. No one’s natural voice sounds like they have laryngitis. That is only when they have a disease or disorder like bulimia. The reason why I am talking about this is I want to help. Bulimia is a sad and lonely existence. I almost died several times when I was bulimic. I had to be injected in the hospital with Potassium 3 times, because my Potassium levels were at lethal levels. Potassium is such a strong mineral that they have to do a 5 hour drip into your veins. If they do it faster your veins will rupture. It’s excruciating pain during this process. Even after this occurred 3 times I still continued to be bulimic. People would say how is that possible. Well it’s a disorder, it takes over you life. It is extremely hard to quit, because everyone has to eat. You cannot just quit food for like you would if you had another addiction like alcohol for example. You can quit that. You cannot quit eating. So unless you switch to Organics, bulimia will continue. The way I quit is by eating Organics, GMO Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, No added sugar, No artificial sweeteners, No Alcohol and No Caffeine. This probably seems extreme to most, but this is the way people used to eat. We are eating what our ancestors ate. It was not till about the 80’s that they started messing with all the food. The food industry is the biggest and richest industry in the entire world. You are delusional if you believe that the food industry has your best interest.
I am bisexual. I believe that everyone is bisexual by nature. In our current society, people would never admit this. If one listens to their own inner feelings they will realize sexual attraction and sexuality comes in many different forms. All beings are attracted to both sexes. If beings did not find the same sex attractive then we would never find ourselves attractive. Now if you say JediJoy, well I don’t even find myself attractive. That is only because a lot of people are dealing with depression and weight problems. This is not your fault. This is a problem with the food industry. They have destroyed food. What food has become is a death trap. We only eat Organics, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, No added sugar, no sugar substitutes, no alcohol and the big one no caffeine. This appears to be super extreme. Well it has become that way due to the food industry lying to everyone and selling food that makes you sluggish, overweight, sick and eventually leads to early death or suicide from being so discontent with your looks. So if you look past criticizing your weigh you will remember that you do love yourself. Switch to Organics as the first thing to transition to a healthy lifestyle. Once you feel good about yourself, you will want to be sexual again. You will find every sex attractive. You will no longer put yourself or others in a box. Do not define yourself as straight, gay, lesbian, etc. Those are all labels and restrictions. Be open to loving every race, color and sex. Do not limit yourself to one sex. Then you write off half the population. You cannot love your own body if you deny that you are attracted to the same sex as you are.
This summer I learned to properly swim. I found a love for water. We live in an apartment without a heated pool so we can only swim over the summer. I found I was getting sad without being with my water friends. JediRich recommended I start taking baths. I used to hate baths. Now I absolutely adore them. I get to sing, dance, relax, massage my muscles and meditate. I recommend anyone that thinks they don’t have enough time for a daily bath, just add about 20 mins to getting ready. Wake up a tad earlier for work. It is a fantastic way to start the day. Men too, JediRich gets in their everyday. I also recommend getting a Jade Stone tool from Amazon. This is the most fantastic pain relief tool you will ever use. It scrapes the lactic acid out of your muscles. It will improve your flexibility, strength and it will alleviate those knots that have been giving you pain for years. When I first started using it, I actually had to have JediRich do it because it was so painful. It is similar to a deep tissue massage. It’s that awesome pain though. The kind that afterwards you feel like a million bucks once you get though it. I highly recommend giving one a try. You will be amazed!
This is Day 3 of me learning to sing. These are some of my all time favorites. I find the best way to practice is to sing the songs you already know by heart. So I’m going all across several generations of music. I love all kinds of music. I grew up listening to oldies and classic rock, thanks to my mom and dad. I just love practicing. It’s not necessary to be an amazing singer. All you need to do is have fun singing. The end product isn’t the point. It’s the blast you have along the way!! Do not be scared to sing even if you aren’t trained or skilled like me. Just enjoy the hell out of yourself!!

I had bulimia an eating disorder for over 15 years. I almost died about 3 years ago from my bulimia. My heart almost gave out. The hospital thought it was a miracle that I was living when they checked my vitals and they were at life threatening levels. Enough was enough, so I had to stop. It was the hardest battle I have ever undertook. I was sick everyday for 6 months to a year. I would have about 3 good hours a day and the rest I had to sleep and heal. Then I discovered Cannabis and organics. People had raved about both in my past. I thought it was a bunch of hogwash and not necessary. Wow was I wrong. Cannabis and organics saved my life and continue to save my life.
So now you ask what does this all have to do with singing? When I was bulimic I lost my voice. It was so hoarse you could barley hear me speak at times. No way could I sing any note ever. My voice cracked no matter what I was doing. I got asked everyday if I was sick or had laryngitis. I would deny being sick. The truth was I was super sick and my death was feeling like it was in the immediate future. Now I’ve never felt better. I started practicing singing because I can actually sing for a bit without my voice cracking. Which is huge progress. I am so happy to have my voice back. I keep practicing so before you know it, I might actually surprise you and hit all the notes. Not yet, but soon!!
