Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Hey everyone. I just wanted to share a quick update.
I know I said that I would take a week long break from the internet--well these last few days I have learned quite a lot about myself, but another thing that happened was I got sick. Really sick. And honestly, I feel that at this level of illness, along with the fact that I've already learned so much, I see no reason not to go back on the internet if I have such limited ability to live my life as it is. I may as well add another form of entertainment/absorption back into my life while I am sick. If I were healthy, I'd continue learning, walking, cleaning, thinking, being on my journey, but now that I am sick, I really don't see a reason to deprive myself of something that could occupy me while I'm alone and unable to do much for such a long period of time. Hope that makes sense.
Last night I was in so much pain, it was the same pain I had last November when I had to go to the ER. Fortunately I was able to drink water this time, and I called my mom and went over to her house and she helped me a lot, and then I watched Bourne Supremacy (AHHH, fabulous movie, Matt Damon is HOT) which totally absorbed me and distracted me from the pain. I'd never seen it before--what a gift that it came on last night!! I've never been so absorbed in a movie or distracted from illness!! I am still sick now, fluish--I did just get the flu shot so I hope it's not THE flu, but I wanted to let you guys in on this little gem of a fact;
My mom did some research last night, and all of the symptoms I am having right now are 95% of the list of ones you can get from my arthritis pain-relief medication, sulindac. Even my GI disease is a possible outcome of it.
So that has to go. And that is probably a huge part of why raw foods has not done as much for me as I would like as of yet, and why I keep randomly getting sick. It's not detox, it's my medication causing me the illness. I thought that was important to record here.
So now I will be going off of the medication. I have to round up all of my doctors for my various illnesses and see what I can come up with. And figure out the best approach to handle my various problems. I am thinking I might take all of their medications and go the natural route at the same time to smash everything. I have been losing so much blood lately, I don't think I can afford not to go on a medication that will help at least the ulcerative proctitis instantly. I am still debating whether I want to take a new arthritis med. It hasn't really been hurting me even last night, and I think it's because I've been doing such a good job at eliminating grains. :) We will see though.
Anyway, take care everyone!!! :) Hope you are feeling healthy and fabulous. :) I'm sure I will too soon.
