Still waiting on finances...
I will be starting 100% raw again once my check comes in at the end of the month. It's extremely frustrating to be eating foods that don't agree with me anymore while I wait for that magic moment.
I miss raw, I miss the way it made me feel, I miss being able to be confident in my skin and my body. I miss that wonderful LIVE feeling I had from the inside out.
I feel like I'm rotting inside. It's the most awful feeling. While I'm not eating meat, and haven't for almost a year now, the stuff that enters my body is not high quality food. I don't want to eat at all, but because of my medications, fasting isn't an option.
When I was 100% raw for 6 months back in 2006, not only did I lose an incredible amount of weight, but my chronic pain vanished. My skin cleared. I felt amazing. I was even able to go off of two medications that were further poisoning my system.
I stopped Raw because I had a blood clot in my leg, which landed me in the hospital for 5 days and on blood thinners for a year. I was unable to have my beloved cranberries or spinach, or any dark greens at all. I fought it kicking and screaming the whole way, but after many messed up blood tests and being yelled at by my doctor to give up the greens, I fell back into cooked foods.
I look forward to next week and all the magic that it will bring.
