Despair to

110% Recovered by Leah E. McCullough was crying so hard I was shaking the bed. It was shaking so much it started to make me sea sick. Since I wasn’t finished crying yet, I moved to the floor to continue. That’s when my husband came home after working his second job. Seeing the pain in my husband’s eyes, seeing myself through his eyes, even though I didn’t think it was possible, I felt even worse. Would this nightmare ever end? I was very sick with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, but also a whole host of other illnesses including major depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue, IBS, PTSD, migraines, infertility with horrible periods, and morbid obesity. I was in constant pain that was barely alleviated by narcotic prescription drugs. I had lost my job, most of my friends and my relationships with my family were severely stressed. There did not seem to be an end in sight. Fortunately in my not-so-dark moments I had started to do some key things that I believe eventually got me out of that hell hole. I had started


praying for healing, visualizing optimal health and meditating daily. I had started actively changing my thoughts to a positive mindset, even though there seemed to be no hope. Within a month of this practice I began having dreams that I was back at work, and this was after over six years of being almost completely bedridden! Ninety days later I met a holistic therapist who helped me. Three months after that, I felt so much better I thought I was cured. (I wasn’t, I still had a long way to go, but that’s how much better I felt.) Within nine months I was able to lose over seventy pounds, stop taking all the prescription medication, travel, and even start my own business. Then I got the biggest news of my life: after eight years of marriage I was surprisingly pregnant. Nine months later I gave birth to my miracle baby. Within a year of beginning to develop my thoughts, every aspect of my life changed for the better. About two years ago I was inspired to write a book about my experiences.

I did not know how to write a book and I certainly did not know how to get the written book into the hands of the people who needed it. I just stepped out in faith and I am completely amazed how all of this has come together in such an elegant way. I know it is from divine grace.
