Well it is one week since i started taking my energy revitalisation vitamin power stuff, along with CoQ10, L-Carnetine, B-vitamins etc and over a week since i started to take D-Ribose, all as recommended in the book From Fatigued to Fantastic!
Although you are not supposed to feel any better so quickly i am a bit disappointed to have missed out on the two day high reported by Rachel!
I have had the odd moment of feeling good this last week, although not like real “lift off”, just happiness to have a whole day without head pains and so on… although i have had them most days and also bad heaviness/aching in my legs and back & arm pains that feel muscular and it’s a bit worse than usual… so if the d-ribose helps with muscular recovery then what is causing that? (I think tension caused by going to CBT and thinking about it too much may be partly to blame for the muscular aches – my thighs must tense when i am stressed as often they shake/tremble/ache after i speak to people intensely… wierd!). Walking the dog for even 10 minutes has felt almost impossible most days and i have shuffled to the nearest bench, told her to “get on with it” and had trouble getting up again. So maybe next week if these symptoms ease i will be able to see it as “proof” something is having an effect!
I am not too downhearted about it, it’s early days and i am not expecting miracles, but i am hoping i find my tasks this week is a bit easier to complete… fingers crossed!
