The rain makes my joints so sore. At the moment I am really hurting when I wake up first thing in the morning, so I just lie there for a while. I am doing a mediation called sahaja yoga at the moment but it says you should do it first thing in the morning before anything else. Trouble is my body is so used to painkillers, I need them first thing and that means I need food which inevitably means I end up downstairs on the sofa and watching TV.
My joints feel like they are burning up but I did a meditation last night and put my feet in cool water for 15 mins and ended up having a blissful night sleep!
Julia at the Margaret Hills Clinic asked me not to take the antidepressants as it will just end up as another medication to ween off but if I am still struggling in 6 weeks, I can take them so I have only taken 2 and stopped. I am secretly glad about that because I do not like the thought of taking them.
I feel so much better in my head knowing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
I have been taking a strong multivitamin and some tablets to deal with my 'candida'
I feel like I am in good hands now, someone who actually cares. I am even thinking of asking if I could have a discount in my treatment as I have been recommending so many people.
I am going swimming again and I can't wait.
On Monday I am off to Egypt. I am a bit nervous because there are lots of excursions but if I can't handle it I can stay on the boat as it's a cruise. The sun will work wonders and it's a spiritual trip too so looking forward to that.
Will keep you posted!!!
