... the equation of my health anyways. For years now I've known that I've had IBS, an auto immune problem that screwed up my body BIG TIME till I started eating a diet that my body didn't get hung up over, and during that time, I was recovering from a huge dose of fatigue that I thought was just plain old fatigue cause I could barely function- walking up Queen street, one of the main streets of Auckland CBD took a good hour and I needed countless breaks along the way. Fast forward a year or so, and I can now scale the whole street several times with energy to spare, but I still felt like something was holding me back.
Besides the fact that I'm still finding out things I can't eat 3 years after adopting the low irritation diet, I found that my energy levels would go up and down like crazy- the better I ate, the better my energy levels were, but I thought I was deficient in a vitamin or mineral- I did find out a year ago I was low on protein by a LOT. Anyways, I've been doing a mad hunt to find out what vitamin I was missing, and adrenal fatigue came up for the gazillionth time cause I fit the bill. I finally got a straight answer from my homeopath that it's what she's treating me for and she never told me cause it was a consequence of my IBS, and me not taking care of myself enough. I actually didn't know it was that bad, so I hadn't worried about being strict on things.
Anyways, I need to adopt a heap of new habits to get my energy levels back. No sugar, no caffeine, eat breakfast, bedtime at latest 11pm... these are all things that are going to be hard for me T.T So... yeah- my back log of comments is huge, and I'm REALLY sorry, but it's cause I keep dropping my energy levels, and it's because my cortisol levels can't handle shit. I'm trying my hardest to be the me that I was before all of this but now I have to change that.
So yeah- sorry it's all like this, and sorry for tl:dr. I think that's the final part of the equation that is my health, and I hope that adopting some new habits is going to change the person I am for the better. I'm DESPERATE for energy levels, and to pump out new art, and to learn colour so I can amaze you all again, and I have a plan for that! I just can't do the studies I need when I have my sugar crashes. It's... hard, but I know how to fix it now
