Aloe Vera

In the search for a cure I have tried so many treatments and one that has come up many times before which I haven't taken seriously is Aloe Vera juice. 
Anyway I decided to take the plunge and go for it as I always believe that liquid nutrition has to be better for absorption and I know it is very good for IBS which is a big issue with me and stomach problems. I decided to buy the best brand Forever Living as it is 100% pure and gel as oppose to juice. 
So far so good noticed an improvement more stamina and not relapsing as long as as bad as before. This will be my second month now and I ran out and noticed even just in a couple days I wasn't as good so shows its working. 
So worth a try if you are looking for something new to try in your quest for better health. You only need extra vitamin D as it contains all vitamins and minerals you need.

ME awareness

Well it was International ME/CFS awareness day yesterday and it is this time of year we reflect on the illness and how it has impacted on our lives and those of our friends and family. 17 years on I was diagnosed in December 1997 six months after getting married I have never been housebound or bedbound so am fortunate that way but it hasn't been easy and I feel cheated out of a lot of things.
I feel as if maybe I could have done more than I have and sometimes I regret letting the illness control my life but in other ways it has taught me I have inner strength and courage and it has enabled to have empathy for others suffering. And my faith has helped a lot as it were not my belief that there will be a cure for the illness in the future then I might have given up on life totally. I will be 44 this month and I have lost 17 years to this illness which cannot be regained. To everyone reading this post please never take your health for granted eat well and live life to the full but do not burn the candle at both ends or you may live to regret it. Prior to ME I had a full active life and working now my life is very restricted and I only wish I had recognised time to rest and recuperate as I all I seem to do is rest and recuperate. But I am able to work though it is only network marketing it gives me a sense of self worth and achievement which I was lacking an it helps me to feel a little more useful and part of things. Tomorrow I attend a ladies network meeting for the first time it will drain me mentally and physically but will do wonders for my confidence and self esteem so it is important I do it. This photo was taken recently at a friends wedding I was really I'll as I had a chest infection but thankfully I can carry off the 'I don't look ill look' but you should have seen me end of the day!

Well it is that time year again and we all try to promote awareness of ME
I cannot think of anything particular but it has been a rough year for me due to some very difficult personal experiences I have to deal with which has increased my stress levels and depression and it has taken its toll on my health.
I found this picture on facebook which I think well describes ME.

Enough is enough

I am going to get my house sorted and decided only way if I have an incentive so am planning a home party to have friends round and pamper ourselves it's on June 15th so seems a while bit isn't and having no energy makes it even harder but bit by bit does it I need to do some serious spring cleaning!

I must remember to eat them I tend to forget and they go bad what a waste of goodness!

Importance of water

It takes some doing for me to remember to drink enough water but then I do drink lots of herbal teas which still counts
