It really has been a long time since I've blogged about anything original. It's been an interesting few months. I have been unmotivated, unorganized, and haven't felt like doing anything. But at the same time, I've had one of the best summers of my life.
I have felt I "should" start blogging again for a long time, but I have had several things happen this week that have made me want to blog. Even still, I have procrastinated for the last 3 hours. It's time to stop running away and get my thoughts down on paper - err, computer.
I have so much to catch up on, so I'm just going to start with the last week and fill in the rest later. My son had his first summer camp this week, so I had my afternoons free. Since he isn't in preschool, this was quite a luxury for me, and I took full advantage of it.
I started with an acupuncture session on Tuesday. I have been feeling incredibly irritable and grouchy, with tremendous mood swings. It's like PMS without the MS. I went through a period like this several weeks after I started my candida diet, but then I was negative and depressed as well. I guess having nothing to eat but brown rice and vegetables would depress anyone. Although I couldn't see it at the time, a friend pointed out to me later that I was going through a healing crisis. It was like a lightbulb went off when she said that, I don't know why I couldn't figure it out for myself. I haven't looked at the rest of this website, but it had a good description of a healing crisis so I am including it.
So I went to the acupuncturist hoping for some relief, from my mood swings and my allergies. It appears that the diet really is helping, because I have been suffering from allergies again since I fell off the food wagon on vacation. But that's another story. What I got was more than an acupuncture session. I learned an amazing technique called EFT.
I highly recommend looking at the above link, because it gives a pretty good description from an unbiased perspective. If you don't have time to look at the link, here is a quick description.
