Top 5 Facebook Pages for Alternative Health and Wellness

  In my upcoming book, The Untold Story of Kim, I detail how we stumbled onto an alternative view of healing. The story describes a process that does not include drugs or chemicals. In fact in condemns those very solutions in favor of a natural approach.

  I don’t want to spoil the story by giving away all the details here, so consider yourself teased. Meanwhile, the whole ordeal has made me curious about alternative methods of healing and wellness. As I spend a lot of time there, I turned to Facebook and found some excellent resources.

The Untold Story of Kim, Part 2

  Recently the need to write the story of my lovely wife Kim has consumed me. See part 1 for the background story. https://quityourjobandliveonaboat.wordpress.com/2014/02/24/the-untold-story-of-the-lovely-miss-kim/

  I sat down to start writing and something very odd happened. I slammed out 5000 words in one sitting. I spent an entire day just typing away like a madman. Now this has never been my style. I’d write maybe 500 words at a time. Take a few days to think. Wait for inspiration. Only when I had a clear vision in my mind about what I wanted to say next, would I sit down and actually write.

  The very next day I poured out another 5000 words. The entire story was all coming to me at once. I couldn’t stop. On day three I had to tend to the business of being an author. My inboxes were all full. I had several requests for review copies of my last book. I had tons of Facebook messages on my author page: https://www.facebook.com/quityourjobandliveonaboat

 I had to make a trip to the post office and manage some household chores. When I finally sat down to write again, another 5000 words came out. Telling this story has taken over my life. I can’t wait to get it all down. Kim has been reading along, and it’s brought her to tears several times. She started to relive some times she’d purposely forgotten. Don’t worry though, it has a happy ending. For anyone who read Leap of Faith / Quit Your Job And Live On A Boat, this is the back story. Leap of Faith was all about finding happiness. It did not disclose what Kim was going through the entire time. The Untold Story of Kim lays it all out there. It’s an honest account, telling her true story of pain. It will make you hate our current health care system. It will make you hate big insurance companies. It will make you hate lawyers. 

  It will however, cause you to fall in love with Kim. If you are a sufferer from chronic pain, it will give you hope. It’s also a love story! I can’t write it without trying to convey how much we cared for each other and how it got us through extremely difficult times. 

  Now I’m going to cut this post short . . . so I can get back to writing The Untold Story of Kim.

In this book I allude to the healing properties of the ocean and the beach. Here’s a shot of Kim on a deserted island beach. She weighed about 110 pounds in this photo. She’s 5′ 11″ tall. I have a shot of her down to 102, but she wouldn’t let me post it. She says it’s ugly.
