Bad Days, Good Days, Blessed Days

After my last post on July 29, I immediately went downhill.  I felt okay that day, Saturday, but as the day went on, everything seemed to cave in on me.  The beginning of depression, tiredness and loss of energy.

I spent the next four days in this slump.  I keep a journal and keep track of my days.

One of my worst days was this past Tuesday, August 1, which was my son Eric's birthday.  It was also the day we met up with Jeff's job coach in Clarksville. My GPS sent us to the wrong place.  Seems there were two locations, and we were at the wrong one.

We were going to be LATE! And knowing that, my anxiety took over.  Sometimes Gary (husband) doesn't know what to do with me.  He kept trying to tell me it would be okay, he would get us to the right place, but I just couldn't see it.  I felt like failure.

I called our job coach to let him know what had happened, only to find out he was going to be late too because of problems with the van he was going to be driving.

We finally got together, and Jeff got to visit four businesses.  He actually best liked the one where a cute girl worked!! That's our boy.

But I was a mess.  I didn't want our guy to see what a wreck I was, so I pretended I was a normal person. But as soon as we got home, I was in bed.  Why was this happening over and over?  Bad Day.

But then this past Thursday, both Gary and I realized that it might be that I had been two weeks without my Ningxia Red drink. I ran out the end of June, and didn't get the next order until July 14. A Good Day.

I never had a thought that this stuff was helping me that much.  It really didn't dawn on me until Thursday that I was starting to feel good again.  And every day thereafter, I have had energy, no depression, no anxiety.  Praise the Lord!  These have been Blessed Days.

In the meantime I have been doing a lot of research on the other products, the oils in my starter kit, and began to realize there are people out there who know exactly what these oils and supplements can do, and I haven't been using them enough to feel the difference.

I've been using them for Jeff to help with the autism, and his own ups and downs, and they have been helping.  Thank you, God!

And for two days now I've had myself on a schedule of four different oils, and I am sleeping better these two nights.

The last time I saw my PCP doctor, in June, I told her about the oils, for me and Jeff, and she said that was great, she has a daughter on them too. She agreed with using them for memory loss.  I hope by October when I see the Neurologists I can pass the test.

I am not going to research the rest of the meds for dementia right now. I'm spending my time on the things that are helping instead.

It was a very, very Good Day when a best friend shared these oils with me.  Thank you, Donna Thompson!
