This is belonging

This post looks at belonging incorporating the armed forces’ relatively recent advertising campaign.

There are lots of things that can give us that sense of belonging that don’t come along with the chance of becoming a killer or a casualty.

Becoming part of any relatively select club can also give a feeling of belonging?

My relatively select club, as most readers know is the MS Club.

We catch up with familiar faces on screen in various ms clubs and chat about the range of challenges we’ve most recently faced.

We find out that, quite a few other people are going through a similar thing.

As owners of a chronic condition we can, like highly trained soldiers also feel a sense of belonging.

Part of the reason I’ve been away from the keyboard are some things I’m aiming to help reduce some of my MS symptoms:

  • I’m trying out the new Stasis sock from Voxx thanks to my US cousin (Voxx don’t post outside the US and Canada)
  • I started Tavegil (Newsweek article shown to  me by my US auntie originally in 2014 except this time using a meaningful dose.
  • following more meaningfully the SWANK way of eating (very low saturated fat diet, basically.
  • Taking steps to follow Dr Coimbra’s protocol which involves taking in (what the NHS might consider a toxic amount) of vitD using supplementation). The UK recommend taking in 400 possibly up to 2000iu
  • I’m not even going to start on EMFs!

It can feel quite tiring to seek out various methods of healing when it feels like there are very few people that have ‘got our back’?

Really , I guess we’re all suffering from a chronic condition – it’s called being alive!

We can choose from a number of ways to distract us from the trudge that is life some of which work better than others.

The Toolwall I hope illustrates our need to approach life and be able to adapt to whatever situation arises.

Histamine apparently functions as a neurotransmitter. Candace Pert mentioning the work of her PHd tutor’s early continuation of HIS tutor’s work investigating the role of the histamine in human physiology (p.41 of Molecules of Emotion) probably has nothing to do with an OTC antihistamine functioning to help remyelinate the brain. Her talk of basic chemistry pointed out how little I know about the body we are housed in.

I just focus on the body being an amazing thing that WANTS to work.

I’d like to take this opportunity to apologise for unsearchability of previous posts. Doesn’t look like it’s going to change anytime soon?

I have spent half my life with a chronic disease and have spent a fair amount of that time addressing some of the common symptoms that a long term condition can bring. Living well is a smart choice and we all know it makes sense.
