    Hi all

    Just wanted to share.. I am having the best week I've had in about 8 months. I'm trying not to get too excited, but honestly it just feels so good to feel almost normal!!

    I had forgotten how GOOD it felt to not feel poisoned and in constant pain.

    I have CFS with a bad case of neuropathy (burning skin, facial pain, headaches, numbenss, freezing skin etc). I have also been having bad sensory overload - worse at night.

    So, I just wanted to share what I have done in the last few weeks that I think may have helped. Unfortunately I've done a number of things, so I'm not sure what has helped the most, but here goes.

    1. I started Klonopin a week ago - within days I noticed my burning skin was much less, and I could handle more noise etc at night. This has been fantastic. I hope it lasts.

    2. Vit B12 injections. Ive had them before, but never noticed a real improvement in energy levels. I certainly have alot more energy this week. I have no feeling of nausea or malaise.

    3. I started a detox on Monday that includes juicing. I've been having about 400 mls of fresh vege juice every day - and loving it. I wish I had started it sooner.

    4. I also saw some crazy lady who did some freaky energy work - I wrote her off as a nut bar at the time, but hey, who knows???

    In addition to this, I've been following a healthy diet and supplementation programme for the last 8 motnhs which has also contributed (slowly) to my gains.

    I know different things work for different people, but I just wanted to post in case something here can help someone else. Its still very early days - I was still very sick only a few weeks ago with post exertional malaise (bedridden / housebound for 6 days) , but I truly feel that something has shifted.

    Dont give up hope!

    Take care
    Michelle

    It's a good and happy thing to hear that one of us has reached a remisson! I do wish you a very long one. Hopefully a permanant one!

    I see that you have included juicing as part of your healing regime. Could you recommend some of your prefered reading material on that subject?

    Also wanted to say I love your pic........is that your dog? He looks like a big Sweety. Animals are so healing.

    P.S. might I also add that I find NZ to be one of the most facinating and beautiful places on earth. You are very lucky to live amoung such wonder. I'm a big "Lord of the Rings" fan! LOL

    Hugs

    Thanks for your responses everyone.

    It's fair to say that the last 8 months have been very difficult for me. And at times I have lost hope of ever feeling well or "normal" again.

    It feels so good to get a taste of it again. I'm going to be careful not to overdo things - a problem of mine :)

    Sandy - I dont have any preferred reading material on juicing. I did some google searches but I cant tell you what sites I visited. There are also plenty of old posts on here about juicing. I've been using carrots, ginger, parsely, brocolli,cauliflower, spinach, apple, cucumber, beets - not all at once tho, I just grab whatever I feel like from the fridge.

    Take care everyone
