it’s all a bit fuzzy


Headache, headache, go away.
Don’t come back another day.

I think that’s how that rhyme goes, right? These days I just can’t be sure. Headaches are infiltrating my dreams, making certain that restful sleep just isn’t possible for me. Dreams about headaches, even dreams about other people having headaches. How screwed up is that?

I go to bed with a headache, wake up with one, with no room for reprieve betwixt. I must be finding some moments of temporary relief, or I think I just wouldn’t be functioning right now. Everything is a bit loopy, though. I feel a bit like I’ve taken cold medicine. My head up in a cloud. Everything is a copy of a copy (when did I became Tyler Durden?). Maybe I’m just functioning on auto pilot right now. Auto pilot is not very effective when dealing with a two year old.

So here’s my plan, radical as it may sound. I think I need to detox and clear this horrid medicine from my system. It seems to be the jumping of point for all of this, but despite being off of it for five days, it’s still impacting me. Not quite sure where to go from here, and frustrated with the idea of trying yet another medicine (this one fixes this, and this second one fixes the side effects from the first… and so on), I’m reverting back to a staple. Fasting. Specifically, a juice fast.

Yes, seemingly radical, I know. In truth, I’ve done them before for similar reasons. I start feeling sluggish, slow, weighed down, just not at my best. Giving my body a break from digestion while getting maximum nutrients for a few days has been an awesome fix. So, I’ve given a three to four day juice fast a shot. Usually with good results. By the end of the fast, I’ve gained some mental clarity, feel better about myself, and as a side bonus, usually lost a few pounds. As long as I don’t revert to terrible eating habits immediately, the weight loss sticks with me for a while.

In the past, I’ve done a mixture of purchased and fresh pressed juices. This time, I plan to do it all fresh and bought a juicer. It’s something I’ve wanted for a while, regardless, so this was a great excuse for it. I ordered it online, and it should arrive tomorrow. It’s terrible, right? Pinning all my hopes on this one singular solution? The thing is, something has to give, and conventional medicine just ain’t cutting it. You know what they say about desperate times…

Off to Costco today to stock up on fresh fruits and veggies. Living in California certainly has it’s perks.

Until tomorrow.
