|Dear Brian, |
It's great to hear you are doing sooo well on the, 'sum of the parts.' This is a really helpful new post, especially for newbies re the things we need to do to stay on track:-).
It's wonderful that the crawling and biting sensations have dropped dramatically. Even more fantastic is that you feel that this time next year you will be well!!!!
It's great to hear you on the weekend calls, especially the Sunday prayer call. Your prayers are always heartfelt and your presence supportive to others.
'Keep on keeping on,' as the Mel man says :-)
It's been a long time since I've posted, but I'm almost at my 9th month on the protocol (December 1st). Time has flown by so quickly as I've been busy with work and just trying to focus on getting well.
I am still very strict on my diet. I will not cheat even once as I'm determined to get my life back! The majority of my diet consists of cauliflower rice, zucchini, avocado/protein shakes, eggs and grass fed beef/organic chicken thighs. I am also very strict with taking my supplements, I make sure I take them on time every single day by creating alarms, or reminders, on my phone.
I can honestly say that I am feeling much better since I started the protocol. My clothes fit better and the crawling and biting has dropped significantly. I'm hoping by this time next year I will be well again, but that's in God's hands. I'll be well when God says it's time and I have made peace with that.
A few important tips for newbies- follow the sum of the parts, diet and supplements are very important. It's better to sacrifice now than to stay sick with this disease for the rest of your life. What do you want more? A few seconds of pleasure eating what you want to eat or to get well? Also, don't give up hope - God hears the prayers of His children and He will see each and every one of us through this. You don't have to try to figure everything about, He's already got it figured out. Just trust Him. During your first year of being on the protocol, coaching is very important. I know it's extra $$$, but it's worth the peace of mind.
Keep in mind that as YOU get well, your environment will also get well. Don't stress over cleaning everything perfectly. Many people have gotten well off of this protocol but they have several things in common - they stuck to the protocol, had coaching and became a part of the community by attending Saturday informational and Sunday prayer calls.
Don't let this disease defeat you (I know it's incredibly hard). You can either use this as an opportunity to draw closer to Christ and fellowship or retreat backward. Take this as an opportunity for growth. God can turn all things around for the good and if He's allowed it, there's a reason. Just my two cents!
I'm always around if anyone needs a friend to talk to.... Trust me, I understand your struggle!
