Yolanda Foster: 'I Have Nothing to Prove'


Bravo.com:
Hi Everyone,

Got out for a movie this weekend, thanks to my girlfriends who push me sometimes. Saw the comedy, Sisters, and got a good laugh! Best line from the movie: "A house is a building, a home is a feeling." That's exactly what it's starting to feel like around here! Feeling blessed with each day as my heart creates its space!
Tonight's show was disheartening. Still, I am the subject of conversation amongst "friends." Looks like I got out of dodge right on time at that barbecue. The only thing I saw grilling was gossip...I have nothing to prove and know that my journey is public due to the job I've chosen as a Housewife, but I can't accept something so delicate as my children's health being talked about in such a way. I know I'm not the only mother who would speak to this… It's one thing when your integrity is doubted, spoken of behind your back, but it strikes another cord when it's your children.

Bella and Anwar were diagnosed at the end of 2013 and have been in extensive holistic treatment ever since. It's very common for multiple family members to be affected by Lyme disease. The children and I lived on a horse ranch in Santa Barbara for 10 years and spent the majority of our time outside in nature.

Bella had to give up her lifelong dream of having a professional riding career and a shot at the Olympics due to her severe symptoms and inability to ride.This was the biggest heartbreak of her life and an extremely sensitive subject for her. She is resilient and focused on a new direction--she's made a name for herself in the modeling industry while she struggles with symptoms of chronic Lyme every day.

Anwar still does regular Ozone/UVI treatments and has had great success with LDI. I am glad to say that he is doing much better and finished a football season with great scores and healthy energy.

Both of them are under the care of Dr. Detrich Klinghardt and have made good progress this past year.
With Mohamed's support, I have managed my children's healthcare on a daily basis since the day they were born. It is up to no one but us to make claims toward their health status. Shame on those who think it's OK to spread rumors and provoke doubt about something so heart wrenching.

As I see the story unfold in front of me, I am just grateful that I exist in a very different vibration!

With all the dirt being thrown around at Kyle's barbecue, it went totally unseen--the efforts she made to host friends, set a beautiful table, and probably the blessing that it is not only to have the present but to have it blessed with food on the table. Our completely overprivileged lives are taken for granted if this is how we choose to spend our time.

I heard the words, morals, and values on tonight's episode but saw a completely different interpretation of what I think those words mean. I choose to live in the present, because when you suffer from chronic illness, you don't have a choice. It's day by day, one foot in front of the other. When there is a good day, you soak up that moment. Those "good selfie" moments are captured because they're a gift.
