Fifteen Months.....Getting There
« on: June 14, 2021, 11:01:19 am »
Another month down in my journey post withdrawal from Valium.....fifteen months total :thumbsup:   How many more to go, I do not know, but I am hoping for “less is best.”  My main symptom of head pain and burning is still taking center stage, but does tamper down when in a nice window.  And, I do get windows, but the waves seem a bit stronger in their intensity, and seem to be in direct correlation to my diet, i.e., just had Peruvian chicken two days ago, and I definitely feel a surge of head pain and GI upset.  I have noticed that the further out I get my food sensitivities are more pronounced.  Seems crazy, but every time I have had cumin in a meal, I feel ill.  So, no more spicy dishes for a while, and more thought and planning in my dietary choices.

Onward in a vertical trajectory, please!!!!

We are getting there yes GG!  Have you ever tried going really clean with your food for a while, such as eating only simply prepared quality meat, plain potatoes, rice, veggies?  All minimally prepared with a little sea salt and olive oil?  I also stay away from gluten.  I can't tell you why this is helpful, but it seems to help me.  I've gradually added more back into my diet but sticking with "clean" food, mostly plant based, etc.  I swear this has helped me make progress.

Every month forward is a month closer to the end of this hellish experience  :smitten:
