Remember I was jumping up and down last month because my scores had dropped to 29 instead of the 229 they were a couple of years ago? Well, I am pleased to report that July’s score was still a very pleasing 35!
That’s not bad at all considering I started the month with a reaction to a supposedly safe iron supplement resulting in very swollen and tender gums and three massive mouth ulcers, which took just over 2 weeks to calm down completely. This probably lasted so long because during that time I had a reaction to the washing up liquid we used on a quick caravan break – the unusually mild migraine lasted just 24 hours which is a record! I then stupidly drank from a carton of apple juice P bought from a shop when we were out. Result: another migraine, worse this time and lasted the usual 48 hours with nausea. Bum.
Later in the month and feeling confident (ha) I tried a glass of the new Aurum Gold white wine which is made by the same people as the red SoLo I am fine with and, bang, another migraine: this time nasty but thankfully short-lived and I was fine again within 36 hours. Whisper it: they are getting shorter. If I could just stop reacting altogether, how well would I be?!!
Now I’ve just written all that I’m surprised it is only 35 score! Trust me, that is a good month because the days in between the reactions are very low now. Yay! I even had two 0 score days last week which is rare but extremely welcome. Those days show me what it must be like to be well all the time: lucky, lucky people.
So, we’ve started this month with two 1 score days – fatigue due to low iron which I have relieved today with 100% grass fed beef liver pate. Me, who thinks offal is offal, if you know what I mean! But, peg on nose, I made some and, do you know, it’s actually really tasty; I must need it? Recipe to come when I have a mo. Complete with the best bread I have made yet as I needed toast for the pate. Watch this space.
Meantime, how are your scores coming along? Keep us all up to date. I’m bearing my soul for you here – come and join me!
