Sifting through the information

I am finally back from the hospital today, and boy was I in for a shock. I initially got admitted for for stomach surgery (really awful gastritis) and found a host of other things including:

1. very VERY high stress levels
2. fat in my liver (which I am told is usually found in people over the age of 45- I am 28)
3. an inflammation in my intestines
4. and high cholestrol levels.

I have been prescribed a drawerful of medication and told to exercise and meditate.

I need to change my lifestyle for myself. Starting now.
ps: Anu, looks like I will be joining you on that no alcohol plan for an indefinite period.
