I just joined the site today and this is my first reply. I wrote an entire intro, but realized I went over my sign-in time..... lost the whole thing! Will have to write again. In the meantime, I've been dealing with a horrible period of HA for the last 6 months. You name it.... I've had it! Right now, I'm stuck on ALS/MS. If I can get past it, I'm hoping I will be close to ending this. I seriously think I've run out of diagnoses! Anyway.... here is what I'm trying:
Accupuncture - Only been to one session. Not sure what the needles did, but the accupuncturist set me up with a detox program, supplements, herbs and a diet plan. I went right out and bought a Nutri-Bullet and I've been following the plan for a little over a week. Feels good to be doing something positive for my health. My interest in the whole program has also been a great diversion from the negative thoughts, the internet, etc
Have an appointment with a therapist next week.
Will do my best to stop Googling (seriously, I think I've read everything on there by now anyway!)
Just ordered: "It's Not In Your Head" from Amazon. Got pretty good reviews.
If you have Christian Beliefs, I recommend "Jesus Calling"... provides short daily devotionals that provide a lot of comfort and encouragement. Most days I am amazed that it actually feels like it was written just for me!
Good Luck everyone! This has been hell, but I have to get out of this!
