Day 5

Aye, so day 5 rolls along. My chest is easing up, but have moments of anxiety and tension there. Deep breathing and meditation techniques are helping. Have a sore throat and mouth ulcers that I thought would have gone now. There's a deeper anxiety underlying, but I knew that, just not sure what the source is or how to get rid of it, so shall see a therapist when I can. A ho-hum day today, a Sunday - I suppose I'm pretty tired with all this effort and chemical re-alignment, can't really give myself to anything, so shall muck about with some music.
