Just a quick update. My husband was finally home for the evening last night and we got to bed early – at 7:30. I slept until 8:00am! What a lovely night's worth of sleep. I have been having insomnia every night for the last week, and I am sure I can attribute it to the fruit binge I've been on lately. I seem to be in some kind of rebellion and can't get myself to stop eating fruit. Fruit is okay on GAPS, but it affects my sleep so I need to stay off it until I do some more healing, apparently.
I am still using the cremes day and night, and I found myself alarmed one day to realize I'm doing something I never thought I would. I have always said I wasn't going to fight growing old. I won't take Premarin, I won't dye my hair, I won't get plastic surgery. And I'd looked into bio-identical hormones a little bit, enough to have decided I did not want to take them.
But this is different. My adrenals needing some help to heal is different. I think.
Well, I have been working at this computer all day long, trying to get caught up in different areas of finance… my husband's business, our personal budget… and I still have a bit more work to do, and I haven't made dinner yet, either… last week I worked overtime about eight hours and ended up eating scrambled eggs [affiliate link] for dinner a couple of nights. Thank goodness I like eggs and can tolerate them.
Today was a good day.
