Life ebbs and flows very quickly for me. I contemplate major changes for a long time before sharing either the resolution or the fact I need to make changes. Several years ago, friends went paleo with very successful health changes. I began to research this lifestyle and was drawn to the possible health adjustments. For a variety of reasons I have not done this change to date.
The last several months have me revisiting this. I am in massive pain. My fibromyalgia has taken a permenant turn for the worse. I am tired of living with this level of pain and I do not want to resort to drugs. Every movement is agony. I feel like there is a hot poker in every joint and each moment feels as though those joints are exploding. This is the level of pain I am constantly in. So, when I finally break down and cry from the pain or curl up in my favorite chair and tell you I am having a bad day and really hurt … the pain is above what I have described.
This has me revisiting my hoslistic practices and nutrition lifestyle. As such I am going to do the whole30 detox and then go gluten free. Hopefully, this will help. After the detox, as I add dairy back in, I will know if my dairy sensativity has gotten worse and adjust accordingly.
Also, I am coming up with a morning routine. My days now begin at 3 a.m. Since, I have no idea how long these circumstances will remain in place I am adjusting my schedule. After returning home, I placed a citrus blend of essential oils in the diffuser, am having a mug of hot water with lemon essential oil., and taking time to write. It is helping me relax after the morning drive. Shortly, I will do some yoga stretches … but first to get the bear cub. I hear him beginning to yammer.
