I want to believe.....

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

A little ray of hope today from my Dr. My nutrition response testing results showed some good progress from 4weeks ago. Dr said it will be slow but my body is responding to the treatment....... It was very helpful for me to have him explain some of why all this was happening. Since I had been so sick most of last year, with surgeries and my only nutrition being IV's for over 6months, my body was way over-stressed. And now, since January, it can finally let the adrenalin level down, it sort of over compensated by just shutting everything down too low. Sounds too simple, but it helped me to better visualize what was happening. That despite my eating so good for the past 8months and following all the Drs directions, my body didn't have any resources to respond normally. Key electrolytes and minerals I needed to process foods and normal activity were so depleted that I wasn't getting results that would usually be there. ........So once again I will try to be patient. But understanding a little better, helps me to continue and give my body the time it needs to repair itself......My goal right now is to try to get my thinking to be more positive about my getting better. Even though I don't see results right away, I need to tell myself and believe that I will get better, that my body will gradually and eventually respond to this good treatment. And try to not let my self get depressed thinking, nothing is working, I will never get better. That negative thinking may actually make it harder for my body to heal.......Well all that is good thinking.....just hope I can put it into my brain. I want to believe, just find it hard sometimes, when it hasn't worked for so l0ng.....but I will start today with a postitive thought that I slept good last night, 6hours...which is the best in 8months. So that is my first p0sitive step......I will continue... emoticon emoticon
