My name is April Barnard, some call me Grannie Apple. I am the founder of YesVibes!, the company that is designed to help you survive your journey through life.
Life….. What a journey it can be. My life has been a roller coaster of emotions, which at times has spiraled out of control, but the key is I NEVER gave up and I have kept a YesVibes! mindset.
About three years ago, I lost my father in law in January and one of my daughters (daughter from another mother) in July of the same year, it sent me into an emotional roller coaster that I truly didn’t know if I would recover from. The heartache was just overwhelming, as I was struggling with grief, I got really really sick. I just couldn’t figure out what was going on with my body, I went to doctors and doctors, had every test you could think of. NOTHING was found….. I thought I was losing my mind. Why can I not function, Why am I hurting so bad? Why am I having blurred vision? Why am I gaining so much weight? I felt like I was losing my mind. What was wrong with me? I looked healthy and fluffy on the outside but was in serve pain on the inside. No one really understood. I got where I just hated going to the doctors because they made me feel like I was a hypochondriac. I finally found a doctor that knew exactly what I was going on with me. Needless to say, he ran more tests, and I was diagnosed with Hashimoto, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Lupus. Wow! That was a lot to take in.
Now the healing journey begins, I started taking all the wonderful medicine that makes you feel good temporarily and then it starts affecting other parts of your body. I got where I just couldn’t do it anymore. I wanted to find the underlying issues. So I started educating myself about the diseases and nutrition.
Through this journey, I created YesVibes! Nutrition Blog. YAY!
