Actually it's really challenging. Although I've been enjoying the creativity of making new interesting healthy vegan meals, juices and smoothies, IT'S ALL I'M DOING!! I don't have any time or energy left over to do anything else, and I'm not able to work (but that was very limited before anyhow).
I haven't taken Naproxen for 10 days -I wanted to detox from round the clock drugs and see what I was like without. I have less dizziness and brainfog, so the brainfog I have left is definitely lupus.
I've had another flare up which started on Monday, with exhaustion, muscle pain and weakness, lots of joint pain and brainfog and breathlessness. Yesterday I had a migraine with dazzling zig-zag patterns! This morning I was sick. I think even though I was very careful with the high UV levels, it still got me.
I seem unable to digest anything (I threw up my freshly made juice -I think I tried to drink it too quick) but I often feel sick and very tired after eating. I saw my Nutrional Therapist (Martina Watts) on Saturday. She reckons I don't have enough stomach acid to digest my food, so I'm buying a supplement to help (HCL). I also have bought a fancy Tumeric supplement to reduce inflammation (she said it's supposed to be as good as a steroid), Vit A supplement to help repair my gut wall, and Omega 3 fish oils. So far so expensive! I just hope it all works!!
We are supposed to be going camping next week for 3 days -that'll be interesting! I'll need to be prepared.
Time to eat some home made soup.
