What Do You Do When Your Are Stuck In a Hotel Room For Weeks?
So, what do you do when you are stuck in a hotel room waiting for your sprained ankle to heal? Especially when the weather is perfect, yet you cannot yet safely mobilize yourself?
Though I am not particularly happy with the situation, I look at it as a sort of gift, giving me the time to work on projects that I have wanted to do yet never made the time to do being allured by many more fun things to do like explore the community that I am in.
I am rewriting a book I wrote on eating disorders aimed at females for males because they have different needs than females. It is sad to note that though the term “anorexia” comes directly from ‘Anor’ meaning ‘male’ the illness became known as most common in females in the 1970s, ignoring the fact that men were the first population in which it was found. Treatment centers have nothing specific to treat the male form of both bulimia and anorexia so few males are willing to go to the treatment centers. There are many other reasons they ought to save their money in that these treatment centers have about a 95% failure rate because they are dealing with binge eating or restrictive eating which are merely the symptoms, having nothing to do with why the illnesses developed. Till you deal with that and get rid of the addictive thoughts and behaviors which is doable with the program I developed 17 years ago — there is mere ‘management’ of progressive illnesses that lead to death in 1 in 5 females and 1 in 3 males. There are only a few academic research papers on the male forms of these illnesses, and then we wonder why these men suffer in silence — well we really don’t because they are not acknowledged in our society. So, now is the time to take care of that problem.
I also decided to create a Linkedin group for licensed medical professionals because the censorship that has occurred in how they are able to communicate their knowledge is horrific not only on their ability to give medically astute advice but has been having a terrible impact on how they feel about being in medicine. Many healthcare workers especially MDs are leaving the field. So, my group is for sharing best practices and if anyone decides to tell others how they overran some boundary, they will be thrown out of the group after the first incident. We are all adults, and freedom of speech is one of my #1 values, so long as the speech is understandable, respectful, and loving because they all need much more love to do their best work. When healthcare professionals are unable to do their best work society suffers for it.
Lastly, I have been spending a lot of time figuring out the best way to market my very high-end high-touch services at a price point that makes sense for the expertise and the very real results that my clients have received over the last 20 years I have been in practice. I am the only person I know who has figured out how to clear both eating disorders (anorexia and bulimia) out my clients’ lives forever — they never look back after spending about 6 months working with me, and I have done the same with sex addicts in 4–6 weeks on average. These are both very damaging problems for my clients to have and the fact that I have clients going back 17 years who once had these problems and haven’t had them since we completed our work together — is something that deserves to be out in the world for those who have them and the willingness to invest in truly healing the foundational cause and purpose for the problem to have developed in the first place, so they never have to think about it again ever!
So, this is what one does when given the time, a computer and a less than great wifi connection — do those things that need to be done to move the needle in those areas of life one can effectively shift for the better.
