I answered more often then not because I never have what I would call a good day. I pretty much go from feeling lousy and force myself to do everything, to a state of wanting the situation to totaly leave me alone and I just cycle through every week like that. But I don't think I am treating myself well either. The pain killers, anti-anxiety meds, anti-nerve pain drugs drag me down so much, I end up cycleing Nicotene and coffee to function on them. I would probably do allot better treating myself with Malic Acid and Magnesium, slowly scaleing up my excercise and stamina, and getting more doesn't do harm treatment like heat therapy and massage, and making myself rest instead of grabbing another cup of coffee and sucking on a Nicotene lozenge to make my body and brain able to function for a brief period of time. So my body probably is completely confused when I am tossing contradictory things at it everyday.
So I am probably my worst enemy on this issue, but you gotta do what you gotta do unless you have the capacity to change your circumstances and few can. Not directly what you were asking, but yes, as soon as I change my circumstances here in another week or so, taking Malic Acid and Magnesium and scaleing it up to where it should be is definitly on my list.
Edit: I wanted to mention on this that I did find in my experiment for about
a month that I could absolutely make a very strong impact on the issues of chronic fatigue, mental fog, and a certain amount of the pain by tossing very large amounts of certain over the counter supplements. In my case I was useing per day, all the Vitamin C in asborbic acid form my stomach would tolerate, about
10,000 milligrams in devided dosages, about
600 to 800 milligrams of COQ10, D-Ribose at 15,000 to 20,000 milligrams, L-Carnetine at 1000 milligrams, Acetyl-L Carnitine at 1000 milligrams, and all the Magnesium I could tolerate by taking powered form in water to break it down in the stomach before it had a chance to get to the intestines and cause diahrea.
Doing all of this made me feel quite a bit better. Also probably cost about
$300 dollars a month to do it. End of experiment since there is no way I could support that cost. So, I am going to try slowly ramping the Malic Acid/Magnesium thing since its addressing allot of the same issues my over the counter high priced cocktail was.
