After what has been such a very long time, I think the timing is right to get back to this poor neglected blog. Is anyone out there still?
The past months have been difficult, filled with illness after illness and such a long recovery time. Being kind to myself was my main focus, not too many demands on myself (apart from the usual kids, husband, house, work etc).
I have been so drained, and lost a total of 5 kg in the space of 6 days with one illness, which may not sound too bad except at 50kg normally, that was 10% of my body weight. I was extremely run down, fatigued and ill so much self nurturing was needed, lots of rest and good food soon followed. Natural supplements too have helped me along, Olive Leaf extract for energy and well being and Inner Health Plus for the digestive issues as well as for the fact that part of our immune system is located in the gut.
I feel so much better now, am regaining my strength and my optimism (which took a hell of a beating recently) and am ready to slowly get back to living this eccentric life of mine to the full.
This isn't a very interesting post today, but hopefully many much more interesting posts are to come soon.
Thanks for sticking around anyone who's still reading!
