My previous post was pretty positive as my bloating had reduced and I was feeling ok. On Monday I even managed to wake up just feeling tired rather than exhausted but then it all went wrong on Monday evening…
My stomach shot back out to full bloat including lots of gurgling and my entire shoulder area began to ache more than ever. This morning it took me ages to button my dress as it involved lifting my arms and I had to keep resting them between buttons as they hurt so much. Not a great start and on top of this I am still having massive breathing issues, I feel like I can never quite catch my breath and like my chest is really tight. A colleague is so concerned she has brought me in a print out on Fibromyalgia from her doctor’s surgery!
To combat this, I have reduced the number of pills I take to keep my BMs regular, am hoping this will reduce the bloating at least a little bit. I’ve also decided that eating soup is the way forward, you can pick up the reduced veg in the supermarket and they are perfect and really minimal effort needs to go in. I’ll put up a recipe for my butternut squash soup later on – it comes complete with options for your non ACD friends
Despite feeling so rubbish, my mind has been working overdrive around how to make this better for myself and others so expect some posts around coconut in the near future. I intend to research this and work out exactly how and why it can help and how we can get the most from it.
On a more positive note, I have a consultation booked in with a local hypnotherapist . This is tomorrow – not sure exactly how he can help me yet but he has overcome alcoholism himself so hopefully he can help me unlock my inner strength and determination to stick this out. Will update you in full post consultation.
Anyone else out there feeling thoroughly rubbish today? A problem shared and all that…!
