This week has not been easy while I fight edema and try to heal. Yesterday I thought I was doing better, and now today I am still having to lie down for most of the day.
The natural methods I am using are:
- drink as much variety of healthy drinks as I can
- eat lightly
- wear tight(ish) clothing
- shower frequently
- massage the areas swollen by excess water
I’m having varying degrees of success on all of these strategies. I might be 10% better than a couple of days ago, but it is hard to tell.
I’m in bed about 20 hours a day and sleeping for maybe 5 of those hours. Everything hurts and I can’t breathe. When I drop off to sleep, I wake up gasping, and have to sit up and try to get some regular deep breathing going on.
I look back to when this was my life. I suffered with edema for years before I finally lost weight. This is a reminder to take better care of myself and I look forward to better health soon.
On the plus side, I managed to post to all three blogs today for the first time in weeks. So maybe I really am doing better, and need to be grateful I can work.
I used my HMNOTE 1LTE mobile phone for my photos on this post. It's a beef, veg and rice dish I can get at one of the restaurants for this condo. I like it, but it is a bit expensive, so I rarely eat it. I love the veg though, which is called morning glory.
