I am almost reluctant to write this..(because I can barely believe it) today, day 6 I feel about the best I can remember feeling in my whole life! I really can barely believe this and I hope I am not all hepped up on cayenne and hallucinating. lol. Seriously, for many many years I have felt just awful. I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue (syndrome) and of course the standard "depression" in the 80's and it has all been up and down since. Mostly down. Long time to feel bad.
WELL I started this whole thing with a horrible headache, the worst I have ever experienced and it didn't subside until day three. I have been a heavy diet coke and coffee drinker (I know, I know...terrible). On day 2 I didn't think I could possibly continue but I did and today! WOW! I had a heavy duty emotional issue with lawyers and my ex husband for 1/2 the day and not only was I clear headed but I didn't get torqued or wigged out or anything (and this is a huge deal to me right now). I did not feel "spacey" like I have been feeling for oh..about 20 years give or take..at all today!
I am so glad to read all your responses and Rebecah I had to laugh about how you became scared reading the posts today...me too!! But then when I was able to weather that emotional firestorm AND clean the house (I've been very worthless up until today)..WELL. I decided this lemonade thing is quite amazing. For one thing, I can assure you I will never drink coffee or cola again. I am also not going to eat Sugar anymore either! I am very happy about that. People used to say that caffeine might be linked to my "problem" but I could not fathom not drinking coffee (I drank it by the pots!). And here I have gone 6 days without it!
Yes...GO US! and thanks for asking..because I really wanted to "talk" about it. I realize tomorrow may be a different story but today I am basking in feeling very good!! Happy lemonading to all of us!
