The treatment is going quite well. Although the progress is not as swift as hoped I am slowly regaining some control over my muscles and learning to control my moods and anxiety better as well, all without medication! With that said, I have been a little lax on my food and exercise regime, being occupied with things that I normally do. I have been out in the city a couple of times to see my friends and catching with some overdue work that had stacked up since I have fallen ill. It does feel good to finally have some control over my life and although it’s not perfect and sometimes it’s frustrating I am constantly trying to remind myself what I was like when I first came here. I am extremely grateful and whenever I am reminded I feel at peace.

As regards to my diet, it has been awful the past couple of weeks… I have never craved naughty food so badly in my life and cannot seem to handle it at all. I have had cakes, pastry, ice cream, fried chicken, beer and the list goes on. And it serves me right for having the most hideous abdominal pain today. It felt similar to food poisoning and it came out of nowhere when I was receiving treatments during the afternoon. Fortunately, Dr Lee gave me some sachets of dried herbal medicine for the stomach pain and told me to take it with warm water. He said most of his patients go through similar things so he has those sachets ready. So I took one (didn’t taste nice..) then I went to bed with a hot water bottle. Together with pain, I was also getting some flu like symptoms; I had the chills, dizziness and nausea. I had food poisoning before (really bad ones) and I was quite worried that it might go on for a while; it certainly is not a pleasant thing. Surprisingly, I just woke up after a 2 hour nap and I feel completely fine. Don’t think it was food poisoning, maybe it was a little telling off of my bad diet…
