I’m Jules Kelly. I am an ordinary mum of 2 amazing children, Alfie is 18 and Gracie is soon to be 13. I am a wife to the patient, long suffering, supportive albeit social hand grenade Marcus.
I have worked in a corporate environment for many years, chasing the dollar and constantly striving to provide in order to give my children everything that they could possibly need. Was I good at it? Absolutely! I was at the top of the pile and my employers got no less than 100% whilst my family got what was left. And whilst I provided financially, all our children really need or want is our love, support and time. Time!! That thing they got the dregs of….I understand that now....
Around 10 years ago, I had a near miss car accident that could have ended very differently to the way that it did. This event triggered, what I now know to be Fibromyalgia. I have also been treated for "query" Polymyalgia Rheumatica. Both of these conditions, as you know, are chronic pain conditions and they have had a massive impact on the quality of my life which has then impacted on my family.
My children have grown up with a sick mum – OK one minute and not the next. Asleep for much of the time, and when not asleep, working to continue to provide a life that they deserved. The juggling act (and along with many other unexpected stresses and life lessons) was extremely challenging and left me broken.
During those 10 years and my regular visits to the GP, I now realise that for the whole time all that I was being given were drugs to deal with some of the symptoms. No one EVER looked at the cause. The GP’s just don’t have the time do they? They listen to your symptoms and ship you off with the “plaster” that might help you cope! I had some plasters alright!! So many tablets I was rattling. I was taking some heavy duty medicines such as Tramadol, Zopiclone, Gabapentin, Pregabalin, Codeine, Anti-Depressants, Steroids, Beta Blockers…you name it, I’d had it! My pain levels were in overdrive! I was in agony. My medication levels were at an all-time high and my mobility at an all-time low. As each month passed I felt more and more poorly and more and more out of control.
Things happen for a reason…..
A very close friend of mine had already been introduced to doTERRA essential oils and had shared some of their magic with me! She even added a drop of lemon oil to a gin and tonic! What an absolute revelation!! Healthy Gin! She had made me a sleep roller which also worked a treat.
My school friends and I have a birthday club! We all chuck in £20 and when our birthday comes around we are all guaranteed a lovely present!
So my birthday came along In April 2018 and my wonderful friends gifted me the doTERRA Top 10 Oils kit. It was Love at first sniff!!
June 2018 – our British summer was glorious! I was too sick to work and was heavily medicated. I sat in my mums garden having a cup of tea when she noticed me starting to drift off….I had taken a Beta Blocker to calm my palpitations which were a side effect of the anxiety and steroids. I felt like my body was shutting down. I thought I was going to keel over! My body felt like it was under siege conditions! All of these drugs fighting to do whatever it is they were supposed to do! I felt abused and violated and out of control. Enough was enough.
This was the turning point and now we start to see some light!
I messaged my lovely friend and asked her to contact her oil lady…I needed help!
Like a blast of energy, passion, love and emotion, Kelly Sheridan- Hornby took centre stage. She was open, honest, funny, caring, knowledgeable, kind and super emotional!! She cries tears of joy and tears of sadness! She is an incredible spirit that has so much love to give to people and animals alike.
Kelly and DoTERRA have changed my life. Kelly has educated me, directed me and helped me so much and she has put me on the road to a full recovery!
Kelly shared testimonials with me from people that had rebuilt their lives after having lived with the reality of Fibromyalgia for such a long time. If they could do it, I’m sure I could too! And I have.
I have been taking doTERRA’s Life Long Vitality supplements since June 6th 2018. I have incorporated oils in to my life each and every day. They form part of my routine and are all around my family and my home. I have successfully withdrawn from all of my pharmaceutical pain medication. All of it! GONE!! Pain is pretty much a thing of the past. Pain I do sometimes get is sorted with the use of oils.
I have never had so much energy and now have more pain free days than ever!
I honestly feel like I have woken up from a long painful and disturbing 10 years sleep. …my spirit and true self had been dulled by this condition and the drugs..I’ve been underground but I’m back!!
I am truly amazed at how doTERRA oils and supplements have helped me and my family in such a short space of time. I can’t change the past but I can influence the future. I feel like I have a duty and passion to share these gifts with others.
I am now proud to be a doTERRA wellness Advocate and I am already sharing the benefits and beauty of doTERRA with anyone that wants to listen.
