What is going on????
I have been all-raw for maybe 3 days or so(i didn't count, im just letting it happen naturally)...every day i am feeling better and better, but today i am an emtional wreck...woke up crying, behaving horribly toward my DH, completely and totally unhappy with my life...this is very different from where i have been because I watched "the secrret" last week and have been on a complete high watching it over and aver again, listening to inspirational music, feeling completely blissful, now here i am...is this detox or something like it...also i have gone from having a very inhibited libido to wanting intimacy all the time...is this normal...anyone else experience any of this...
some encouragement needed...
Yes, many people have experienced that. You're not alone, don't worry! It's emotional detox. You no longer have the cooked food to numb the emotions when you eat so while eating raw they will begin to surface. Just ride with it. You'll get through it!
What's "The Secret" about?
~Dream For Life~
Incurable means curable within.
"the secret" is a video about the law of attraction and how to activate it in your life...using your mind to achieve your best possible life....thanks for your response...it a rough time but i know i will get through....
Yep, I had a day or two of that, about two weeks in. Oddly, my usual PMS (which would have arrived a week prior) was completely absent!
I explained it to my boyfriend, and he nodded without judgment and wisely ignored me. It passed as quickly as it had started. I am chalking it up to detox and moving forward.
Hang in there...!
I have had it, that is a great thing. Embrace it, you are on your way to further healing.
I can totally relate
I can totally relate. I went through a period where I was extremely irritable and very very angry and negative. I went through a straight week where I was just hating everything. I even tried really hard to think of something positive and literally could not do it. My boss was even worried that I was going to quit my job. After that week, the cloud lifted and my thoughts are now a lot more positive. Negative thoughts still creep in every once in a while but not nearly as much pre-raw and just beginning raw. It will pass and the dark cloud will go away! Hang in there.
About a week ago i posted my experience.
My poor husband was so upset he left to go sit in the car, i was crying so loudly the neighbors stopped to listen, i can only guess what they were thinking.
I cried so much and so long you would have thought i was having a nervous breakdown, i was wailing and couldn't stop, it seemed to last for almost 2 hours and then i felt better. It hasn't happened since and i feel so much better afterwards, it was so cleansing, i feel reborn.
It was so strange but with the help of my friends on this board i have a better understanding of what was happening.
thank you all for your loving support...feeling more like myself today...did a lot of praying, listening to music that inspires me, called my peer counselor for a session, and rested....and stayed on the forum all day!!!!!thanx again...
i believe it was a full moon yesterday too.
could it have been that?
what do others think? i know i've been quite off the past few days. :)
