Anytime you try to recover from something that has knocked the life out of you. All you can do is just walk through the pain one faith step at a time. I’ve been doing that for what seems like forever. However, I’m feeling more hopeful than I’ve felt in quite sometime. I can honestly see light in what has been a deep, dark tunnel.
Tomorrow will be two weeks straight that I’ve cut out all significant amounts of sugar from my diet. I also very rarely drink anything with caffeine. There’s no doubt that eliminating these things has drastically changed my painful condition. I’ve not even had one total nervous breakdown in this two week stretch. Prior to this time I had never had at least one day per week that my nerve damage didn’t totally take me down.
These two weeks have not only brought some relief, but way more consistency. Along with this clear discovery I’ve now officially reduced two of my main medications. I’ve reduced my Neurontin by 400mg and my Amitriptyline by 25mg. I’m now very motivated to do whatever it takes to keep this recovery momentum.
Earlier I started back physical therapy after several months of not going. I felt by far the best I have in over four years. This Friday I will be going to a place that will do a full assessment of my medical history. I’m praying this place will discover even more that I can do to increase my quality of life. Honestly, just feeling hopeful again has elevated my spirit so much.
