This blog has always been about my journey in the primal lifestyle. I created it as a way to share my experiences of eating an ancestral diet, fitness, nutritional therapy training, but most of all trying to balance my brain. I have always struggled with being manic depressive. Chemical imbalances run through my family like brown hair does. I feel like a lot of people will relate with me here, but we have so much shame about mental illness and so much judgment about the treatment of it that very few people in the Paleo community will talk about it without condemning others’ choices on how to handle it. Those of us who face it stay in the closet for fear of being ostracized.
