It's been two months since I was in the hospital and I have to say things are going well. Believe it or not I still have some withdrawal symptoms, but they're slowly going away. Gone are the splitting headaches, nausea, diarrhea and jitteriness, thank God.
I've also experienced a total shift in the way I think. I am really trying to look at all things in a positive way, no more incessant worrying about everything. No more stressing about petty things and a lot more gratitude and appreciation for life, my life especially. I notice when I'm tired or ill, the negative thoughts creep in, so I have to try harder to focus on happier thoughts. It's not easy for me, a constant worrier, but I am getting better at it.
Reiki has helped a lot in calming me when I need to sleep, but it's effect is quite 'light', well, maybe because I'm only at level 1. Recently I attended a Qi Gong course (www.wellnessmedicalqigong.com), which I hope will help me achieve calmness and health. The course was excellent and I hope to attend all the courses to enable me to heal myself and help others heal as well.
