Day 2 - Reactions. A Challenging Day.

May 30, 2017

Nothing worthwhile is easy. 

 

I apologise for this blog being a little later than I had hoped and planned.

I will also try and keep it short & sweet as I am not on top form, it has been a challenging day. 

 

 

Mama and I started the day with the fire burning fiercely in our souls. We had our awareness t-shirt and our bracelets on ready for action.

 

Though the first to arrive ( as always - never late, always early we were last out). It took the nurses an hour to get a suitable vein for my IV infusions to begin. Once we had found the vein we thought all would be straight forward from then on. Mama went for a walk and I just chilled. However 20 minutes in I began feeling boiling hot, my head itching like crazy but when I scratched it was like razors blades on my skin. At first I ignored it but then my throat began feeling like swords were scrapping down it, my lips hurt to touch, and I could touch my skin anywhere without it itching but like my head giving me that razor blade pain. 

 

I felt like the front of my head was going to explode and I wanted to be sick. I had to pull the rope and call the nurses. This led to me coming off the anti-biotics and took a couple of hours to stabilise the symtoms. My temperature sky rocketed and I felt panicked. I couldn't move. Nothing could touch me as the itching would start. 

 

Mama came back to find me exhausted with ice packs on my head. This panicked her to as all day it meant I had to have liver detoxes and vitamin drips rather than the anti-viral drips. Which is what I really needed.

 

A 3-4hour job then turned into an 8 hour day. I am exhausted and have had 7 lots of infusions today. Wiped out. A little deflated as is Mama we just want all to go straight forward for once but that's life. Need to keep positive! We have high fived to the day and will keep the smiles on our faces.

 

Got to rock this rash and a bruised head and neck now 🤞🏼. Rock what you have. 

 

Roll on tomorrow. 👊🏼💪🏼

 

 

Love and peace

COOKING TIPS

#1
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
 
#2
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
 
#3
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
 
#4
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
 
#5
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
