The short version of a very difficult time in my life is I was going through a challenging time in my marriage of many years and we were having to move out of our family home of 16 years. My parents and an in-law were in the beginning of a decline and needed daily assistance. My son had a serious back problem and my daughter had an illness causing her to miss a lot of school. All of this in addition to the regular demands of daily life. I handled it all. That is, I handled it all except my health.
It isn't that I didn't know better. After all, I did stop on the three occasions my inner wisdom said to take a break. So I took a day off. I remember in the back of my mind thinking that I should practice the HeartMath tools. I knew I needed to and I knew they would help. But - I was too busy. I didn't have time. I would get to them later.

I've fought weight for years. Ten years ago, my then-new personal physician told me I needed to lose weight or lose my life, and sent me to a nutritionist. I was put on blood pressure medication and forced to face the harsh reality I had managed to avoid.
Around the same time, I began doing work for H3I, and went through several of their healthy living programs. I began healthy eating as a way of life, began working out, and learned to regularly make healthy choices. Over the next year, I lost around 70 pounds, then hit a plateau. I hadn't started regaining, but I wasn't progressing and bad patterns were sneaking back into my daily life.
Unfortunately, in the last 18-24 months, I gained nearly all of it back. I was just not able to get a grip on it. I could not figure out what was wrong with me – why wasn't I stronger, and how could I not have any will power at all? I had quit smoking and drinking, both cold turkey, but obviously that isn't an option with food.

I live in the UK with my husband and 2 beautiful young sons Sam and Alex. Alex turned 2 in January and has for many months now been waking 4 or 5 times a night, and more recently ending up in bed with me in a bid that we would all get back to sleep. This indeed was only serving to reduce his ability to sleep on his own. I was feeling constantly exhausted. It was becoming more and more difficult to tackle the sleeping issue because of my exhaustion and I was becoming more and more stressed every day.
I acquired my emWave in February having received heart resilence training through one of your excellent partners in the UK (EI World), and was lucky zach spacer enough to enjoy a large amount of input from Bruce Cryer, President of HeartMath LLC at that training. I've used the emWave as often as two young children have allowed since then, and my husband has been helping to deal with Alex on alternate nights so that I've had more regular nights of less disturbed sleep.
