I read a very interesting post recently on APV, so decided to try some for myself. Sun. I took only 1 tsp w/apple juice. Mon. I totally forgot to take any (can you imagine that?!?). Tues. I took 1 tsp w/AJ at breakfast and 1 tsp w/AJ at lunch. By that evening I was feeling even worse than I had been. Had stomach like flu all night. There was no place on my body that didn't hurt - even my joints. Went to bed @ 9pm and slept 'til 10am this am. Finally . . . my question: I'm an only child and I take care of my mother who is bi-polar, no central vision (mac degen), and alzheimers. She lives in assisted living alzheimers unit. However, I see her very often and don't want to miss too much time away. Do I still keep on taking the ACV . . . will this pass really soon (like today). Or, should I just stop? Please help . . . I really don't know what to do. If I'm getting worse before better - I'll try to stick it out. But, think I'll go back to just 1 tsp again tomorrow. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Nikki P.S. I have FMS, osteoarthritis, myofacial pain, and probably CF.
