3 weeks done….3 more weeks ahead!

I went for my 3 week follow up today – firstly I am massively proud of myself, I managed to get through Easter, being away with family and Caeli’s birthday without cheating even ONCE! Can you tell how desperate I am to feel better?!?!?!?

So after 3 weeks I am feeling much better…I’ve had countless people tell me that my skin is glowing, I look healthier, perkier etc. I definitely feel loads better and more energetic. I have lost a couple of kg…nothing earth shattering yet I’ve had quite a few compliments that I am looking much slimmer/better. It’s funny coz my clothes don’t really feel looser?! But maybe I just look less bloated?? Dunno! Enjoying the compliments anyways

I am officially detoxed…the lady checked all my organs again and they are MUUUUCH happier with me so definitely worth doing, yay.

As for my ‘episodes’, the computer kept coming up with bacterial central nervous system infections e.g. “Meningitis”, “Encephalitis”, “brain lining infection” etc. It really kept coming up over and over. The computer also said that I picked up this infection about a year ago. She says meningitis type bacterial infections aren’t always severe, it is possible to get them and just think you have flu kwim?! As long as their are no complications you can recover and never know you had them. So what she suspects is that I had this infection and my body managed to kill it off, but not get rid of it completely and now it’s still causing irritation. She is treating me for it and feels very confident that this is what is causing all my ‘episodes’. It’s fascinating to me because the computer even said I got infected about a year ago and I know for a fact that my symptoms first started on the 13 June….nearly a year ago!

The good news is that she really thinks she can kick it for me, so please keep your fingers and toes crossed! It would be *such* a weight off my mind and heart to have this sorted!!!!

I do still have to stay off wheat and sugar for the next 3 weeks but I can do that…and at least I can have some dairy again! SO excited to have some cheese 🙂 🙂 🙂

Please keep fingers and toes crossed that this comes right for me!

Week 1…NAILED it!

Week 1 of the detox is over! Only 2 weeks to go!
I have to admit that this week has been surprisingly easy – I’ve lived on a diet of mainly salad, veggies, meat, eggs. I have discovered a love for both Rye Bread (who knew??) and quinoa (gluten free grain, it’s DELICIOUS!). I haven’t had any of the terrible detox symptoms people talk about, aaaaaand I must say so far so good…I’m definitely feeling less bloated, had less stomach aches, and generally more alert. I think.

Today I struggled a little bit with just wanting chocolate. Not craving it, not desperate for it..but just feeling like it. It’s a bit rough at the moment with less than a week to go until Easter and chocolate, chocolate EVERYWHERE…but I’ll push through and I’ll be fine!

On an unrelated note, Caeli has this rash again that’s driving me mental! She started up with a weird rash on her arms and legs at the end of December. It looks similar to a ringworm but there are loads of circles and they are not as raised/dry. Inside her arms (between armpit and elbow) and on the insides of her upper legs. We tried anti-fungals, Allergex, Celestamine etc but nothing seems to work. They keep going away in their own time but within a couple of weeks they are back. It’s driving me nuts! We’ve been to the GP about it but now i’m thinking of going to the homeopath. I am sadly a bit OTT when it comes to my kids (or I’m sure my husband would say – with EVERYTHING) but I really hate it when there is anything wrong with them. They’re my babies and I adore them and I just want everything to be fine with them *sigh*. Thankfully the rash doesn’t hurt / itch / anything so at least it’s not troubling her, only me…the joys of motherhood 🙂 🙂

That’s all for tonight…
