I'm attending two debating competitions in the next 4 weeks at other universities, the first next week and the next 2 weeks later on the weekend. It's a two day thing so I'm staying two nights. I'll be unable to do a 30 minute soak on these days so I'm pushing back starting the Epsom Salt
regime, as I don't want to cause some unnecessary spreading of the infection, if that's what it is, by the microorganisms somehow becoming active and fighting back. Thus making my EC worse. Also a habit of consistency is good.
After the second of these comps I won't be going to any competitions for maybe two months so I'll be able to do it consistently. However, just reading the recent thread on ES, seems that soaking the solution on to tissue paper might be an alternative, so what I'm thinking is I do actually begin doing something related to it pretty soon, as I realise the flexibility of the thing. Just have to get Epsom Salt
dissolved on to my damn lips. I'll update if I decide to begin anything.
My current tasks now are to make an appointment with my GP to talk about this and potentially get my Zinc levels tested.
There's another thing which I am going to begin doing right away. It's gonna sound wildly hilarious, but every day for about 5 to 10 minutes, I am going to look in the mirror at my lips and imagine them being perfect. I'm going to think extremely positively and about the outcome of my lips returning back to normal, to those fresh, natural, slim, light brown/pinkish lips. I'm going to envision what my life will be like, what the impact will have, what I can then on do and the immediate and long-lasting positives it will bring. I'm going to be extremely positive and happy about my lips and trust in the essence of matter before me that my lips will be perfect.
There was a thread the other week about being positive and I commented that I'd followed a link posted on here some years ago to a site talking about the law of attraction. I read a post on the thread, did what it said and witnessed immediate benefits. And as I was doing it, imagining my lips well and perfect, I felt truly and naturally happy. I think that's a key thing if you want to do this, there's a difference between forcing something and genuinely feeling a certain way. It's like how you don't try to find something funny, you just do, the laughter takes over you. And if you try to find something funny, if you try to anticipate it, you affect your reaction. The same goes for any emotion. I think you know what I'm talking about.
So these are the next things I am doing, I will report back if any progress or otherwise in 7 days.
Other than that during the time I allocate to researching this condition I will find out as much as I can about the white line and white goes stuff. As I've said before, if I could handle this I could possibly live happily with EC. But I feel that's stupid to say because, at least the white line is fundamental.
