“When I finally got, not the answer, but I was starting to get answers, I felt so much relief. I felt like for the years leading up to that, I felt kind of like I had lost control of my body and that there was something wrong with me. And all of a sudden I didn’t feel broken anymore.” (13:50)
“The stress component, that is something that I have really realized at the beginning of this year that it was really affecting everything.” (24:11)
“I do transcendental meditation, so it’s twenty minutes in silence twice a day. And when I started I was like, ‘20 minutes? That is daunting.’ I could not sit with myself in silence with no distractions for 5 minutes. So I thought it was this really big scary thing, and immediately, like 2 days into doing it… I was like, ‘This has been life-changing already.’” (26:29)
“Just be patient, because progress is not linear and there are going to be setbacks.” (30:47)
