Well this week has been a whirlwind! Crazy last minute, get ready for school to start, buy school shoes, pens, pencils, binders, all a ton of other things for the first day of 6th grade for my youngest. WOW it happens so fast. I blinked and she’s 11. No longer my little baby girl. And this morning… She started taking EHT. I hope it helps her with concentration as much as it has helped me. Maybe she will stop waking up in the middle of the night. She tends to wake up about 3 and fall back to sleep at 5, just in time for me to wake her at 6. She’s ready and out the door by 7 every morning, summer or school year, as I am still a working Single Mom. We shall see if she’s more alert in the morning and what her sleeping habits become. I am uber excited at the possibilities for her this coming year. I have read so many wonderful examples (and as soon as I learn to attach images or other stories to this blog I will be – and my friend will be adding his 2 cents on how EHT has effected him in a couple days.) of how EHT has changed lives. Everything from focus, to sleep, muscle aches after workouts, to reducing medications or getting off them altogether, better sleep, feeling less tired (all without caffeine)… there are so many stories that bring tears to my eyes! Soon you will be able to read those too! ((Might even try today))
ok… so onto another MAJOR change I have seen and not even acknowledged. I have been cold blooded my entire life. Suffering from low blood pressure (95/60) most of my adulthood. I would ALWAYS have a jacket with me, and would be freezing if it was 80 degrees outside and I was in the shade or with a slight breeze. Once I was diagnosed with CRPS, any AIR MOVEMENT would send me into tears. I couldn’t handle the air conditioning on (And I work for an AC company.. how ironic), I couldn’t be outside in the wind or even a slight breeze, shopping was awful (the stores always so cold), ERs and hospitals were the death of me. Not only would my arm ache but would turn blue and my body would shiver. I kept my room above 85 degrees year round.
well at dinner last night, my daughter, who is notoriously HOT BLOODED like her dad was complaining that it was “cold” in Applebees while we were eating dinner. I was in nothing more than a short sleeve top and a knee length skirt. No sweater, no jacket, no shrug nor pashmina… nothing! No sleeves…. and NO PAIN! I walked out of the restaurant into the 75 degree evening with not a care in the world. This hasn’t happened since I was a child. No exaggeration. I couldn’t handle any cool weather. I am in shock. I am blessed beyond belief. Oh and my BP is 120/70. Doctor is very happy with me!
Updates coming soon…
