Sick again and another ER visit.

Every time I eat I get sick from both ends. Trying to eat the least upsetting food for my stomach. I was dehydrated and had to go to ER. They couldn’t tell if it was from the new meds (started right after) or a bug. Either way it has been over a week now and I still am sick after eating.

Mentally I am sick as well. Between the two I am in bed all the time and sleeping.  I sleep at least 16 hours every day. Went to psyche nurse today and she is adding an older anti-depressant to my cocktail. Though I have to wait since what she ordered doesn’t come in that size and they have to order it anyhow.

I am so sick and tired of this. I am suffering physically and mentally and still having trouble with my cognizance. Typing is a real trial and can’t spell anymore.

Please excuse my ins and outs. I will be here when I can tolerate it.

Garlic Therapy

Yet another excellent natural herb that possesses bacteria-fighting traits, garlic has proved that it can help manage the pain of fibromyalgia. This is largely due to its content of selenium. According to J.O. Ban, chief author for a 2009 study published in Arthritis Research and Therapy, thiacremonone, one of the sulfur compounds found in garlic, helps to prevent inflammation in the body, making it easy to treat inflammation.

Garlic also contains antioxidants that contribute to reduce inflammation and pain. Garlic not only helps with the pain of fibromyalgia but also with fatigue.

To start your garlic therapy, eat 2 to 3 clove of raw and fresh garlic every morning. You can add into your salad, soup or sandwich. Garlic can also be taken as a supplement.
