So I’m going to have to go back a little while to my last blog post where I was happy to be having sugar and not starch. That did not last long! My temperature just will not rise if I do not have starch. It will be 36.3 in the morning and it will remain there, or it will get pushed up to 37 because it’s stressed. I did not feel good. I lost the urge to do things and then by December I was a sitting duck waiting for the first bug/virus to attack me, and attack me they did! I was ill and miserable and something had to change. It’s difficult though because you lose the urge to do things and you don’t realise you are not doing the things you need to do to get better. I stopped doing the raw carrot salad, even though I know how much it can help, just because I became lethargic and not as pro-active about things.
It’s been suggested to me that the anxiety is psychological, or that I bring it on myself. For a couple of years now I have pondered this. Am I crazy? Lol! Probably! Do I do it to myself? Lately it’s been said to me that I identify foods as problems for no particular reason! Finally I am saying NO! No, I do not have psychological issues with fruit and veg. No, I don’t bring it on myself. No, I don’t identify foods as problems for no reason. I’ve doubted myself for so long because I know how easy it is to get things wrong, to believe/trust things are working when they’re not, to hone in on the wrong things, I know this because I do it often!! We’re human, not infallible, and it’s often hard to see the wood for the trees. Apart from the anxiety, I was also getting very sore, cracked lips, with horrible sores on them, and I certainly wasn’t bringing them on myself! Nor was I willing my sore back to come back or giving myself dry skin or terrible sleep.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my long overdue ramblings. As always listen to your body, as I am finally listening to mine, and do your own experimenting. Feel free to leave any questions/comments below, I always love to hear from you guys! I’ll have an update in the next few weeks to let you know how I’m getting on & if I’ve managed to resist changing/messing with things!! Take care, Karen x
