Thank you...

Dear Tracy,

You are a kind and generous spirit...thank you for your words of advice. You are right- I need a support team. This is where my mind has been lately. I am so sheltered by this illness, but I need comfort the most. My family is not good at showing emotions- instead they get very defensive and angry or leave! I think they are afraid to change. I have to change- this is what this illness is teaching me. I am navigating this scary and painful road, but I HAVE to do it- there is no turning back.

I will work on my attitude. As you said, people definitely mirror how you act. I am almost afraid that if I act happy and okay, they will not believe that I am ill. Do you know what I mean? When I am having an allergic reaction or feel sick, I get quiet and mad that no one is taking care of me. I know this is childish on my part.

I do have a juicer, albeit not the best kind- I am trying to get a dimension 2000 in a little while. I know juicing helps me a lot, especially when my intestines are sick. What are the best veggies to juice for this? I usually do carrot/celery or carrot/cucumber/wheatgrass- usually whatever I have around.

My sleep is better than it used to be, meaning I actually sleep for about 5 hours straight before the pain kicks in and I'm tossing and turning. I take valerian before bed and it helps.

Thank you so much for your presence on this bb- It's very comforting to talk to people who have been through IT- and are well- and have tons of advice!!!

Take care, Terry.
