Proof

So, you know when you're trying some new regimen for some ailment of discomfort, and you wonder, "Is this really working?" Here's a thought: Quit whatever you're doing for a while, and then see how you feel without it!

Right before Christmas, I began dosing myself with an acai berry blend, 2 oz. twice a day, to see if it might help my fibromyalgia symptoms improve. I was pretty sure I was doing better, and even mentioned it in a post a while back. Well, this month, I forgot to replenish my source, and ran out! I didn't panic or anything, just thought I'd let things play out and see how I felt without it, thereby proving to myself beyond any doubt that the supplement was worth the money I was spending on it.

Well, if you're interested, I haven't slept a full night's sleep in a WEEK---I'm lucky if I get FOUR HOURS, I have been back on pain medication (prescription AND Ibuprofin) at least 2x a day, and my 2 mile run time is down......way down. :( *sniff*

I FEEL TERRIBLE.

But at least I know it works!

Yeah, you wonder, is this working? I know I do about keeping Emma off milk. But I know the only way to really find out is to let her have it again and see if she gets sick and all her symptoms come back. At that point I know that I am so happy with how healthy she is now, I would never want to risk it. Not worth it.

But glad you found out for sure!!! Now I guess you'll make sure you don't run out again!!! : )

Awesome! Glad to hear you found something that works for you! Always difficult to prove stuff like that, so it's "nice" that you were given the "opportunity" to do it;) Get some more quick!!!

That is amazing. I've never tried the stuff, but heard a lot about it. I hope you can order more soon!
