DAY 26 OF LENT - DRUGS OR NO DRUGS
The hand that I so stupidly stabbed has gone mental. Hot, agony, swollen and throbbing so bad I took some anti inflammatory. Now I know this is the body healing, what I did not know was that is was cellulitis. Until my friend in Malta who is a doctor told me and advised me to take the anti biotics.
Now I don't want to take drugs ever but especially when I have been fasting and detoxing and replacing the bacteria in my gut. But I am also not stupid, I knew I had to take this seriously. It was getting worse not better. I am not prepared to be a dead drug free super hero.
I had the prescription still in my pocket so I knew I could go get it if and when the time came.
I drove up to Stonehaven and when I arrived another friend said, get the antibiotics, just incase.
By this time the chemist was shut and I defo had a bit more movement in my hand. And I thought back in the day, surely you did not die from and avocado incident? But maybe you did.
I decided to wait another day and googled natural alternatives.
Coconut oil compress. So I sat with that pressed on to it and did some of my own healing techniques and focussed on healing.
This morning it is much better. More definition in the back of my hand, more movement, still a headache though I was not sure if it was the stabbing or the sulphur rich eggs I ate. So confusing all of this! I let go on trying to figure it all out, and just let the body do the job.
My daughter said she was going to tell my mum who was quite concerned but I told her if she did I would not be babysitting next weekend.
If my mum thought I was being pig headed and not taking the meds I would never hear the end of it.
Luckily by the time I spoke to her today I could tell her hand on heart it was much better.
It is interesting to be in that position, I know taking the meds would have worked and possibly much quicker than it is healing now, but I was also so protective of my gut after all the work I have been doing restoring its health.
I had to go with my gut, pardon the pun.
More coconut oil compressed and some turmeric tea, that should keep the inflammation at bay and fight the infection.
Let's hope so anyway! Still there a bit, by no means better, but I am typing with 2 hands now and I could not do that yesterday. Progress indeed.
KEEP THE FAITH
Faith, it's funny how your faith wobbles when fear comes in. There is no right or wrong choice, it is just the one that feels right for you.
So unbelievably annoying to stab yourcellf, what an eejit. Just getting my body back into shape and then I stab it and make myself sick again. Aye quite the dummy.
Thankfully for now, I am healing.....again.
Keep the faith Lilia.
Here is to your health and happiness.
