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!
