Since the holidays, I am really struggling with my health. For those who don’t know, I am an insulin-dependent diabetic and I also have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Normally, I don’t overindulge in sweets because I know how hard it is for me to keep my blood sugar levels balanced, but with all the nail-biting of the election, the weeks after and then the incident at the Capitol, I’ve been on a carb-binge. My blood sugar is way out of whack and the CFS has flared up massively.

When this happens, my only recourse is to do an extensive water, green tea and bone broth fast. And when I say extensive, that means two to four weeks of fasting under doctor-approved supervision. It will also mean a lot of meditation and sleeping. I will likely begin this tomorrow, so I won’t be around much.
