My search for truth

I grew up in a Jewish home, but never really connected with the religion. I suffered from depression from a young age and, as a result, became involved in drugs as a teen. I was searching for anything that would make me feel comfortable and complete. Nothing filled this void, and I always felt lost. 

During my teens, I began having irregular menstrual periods that caused me great pain. I tried medicines and acupuncture. I felt acupuncture provided a somewhat more “spiritual” approach to healing than traditional medicine, so it appeared to be more what I was looking for. I felt inspired, and after some time, I ended up earning a master’s degree in acupuncture.
