1. Take a hot shower before bed to lessen pain in the AM 2. Try to sleep on my back at nite as much as possible 3. Ice my back and neck in the morning to lessen pain and associated bad mood resulting from pain. 4. Drink Peppermint, Comfrey, and Plantain herbal tea to assist my digestive issues. 5. Drink White Tea to lift morning depression and brain fog.(I try to stay away from caffeine but at the moment its the only source I use to get me going) 6. Juice fresh vegetables and especially greens in my juicer and try to get 16-32 ozs of juice into me b4 10 am so I can get the nutrients I am not getting from food. 7. Take probiotics and also Perfect Food to work on cleaning out my digestive tract which is loaded with candida etc. 8. Keep my windows closed when the landscapers are blowing leaves, cutting grass, and sending fumes from leaf blowers and mowers. 9. Play relaxing music while I make tea and make products to lessen the whole grind of doing it. 10. Wear a charcoal mask when walking around the city and taking the city bus.

Cook plain food with no seasoning or sauces due to leaky gut. 13. Take melatonin at nite for sleep. I wanted to share this because it reinforces what I must do to keep myself out of relapses. I try to kid myself that this isnt really real and then when I dont do the things I need to symptoms get worse, i get depressed, feel more isloated, feel like a victim, push people away, and beat myself up for being sick. I need to take ownership of my illness and try to release the anger I feel towards MD's and family and friends for not understanding. This is the hand I have been dealt and no one is going to save me other than myself. I want to make the best of it and focus on being able to work from home, and try to contribute to society, instead of being angry and miserable. I dont have to like this illness but for now I have to accept it for what it is. Thanks for listening!!!!
