Before you start singing Craig David or Sting songs – depending on your age I thought now would be a good time to update you on the Cold Moose Experiment.
A week medication free for the first time in almost 2 years, yes it was risky to do this and while I am aware that it is still early days I can truly say that I have not felt so strong mentally in at least 5 years!
The best thing personally is that I have spent some awesome time with Brandon. He has been away at his mums due to being ill but when we have been around each other we have laughed so much – it has been great.
I have laughed and smiled so much lately – forget that strange looking yellow thing in the sky everyone is asking about, the new phenomenon is the lesser known smiling moose currently doing the rounds of Woodford/East London.
I have been out and about the past few days, visiting relatives even going to the cinema. My stomach woes are currently gone! I feel like a normal person in terms of the IBS issues. The early morning spells of being locked in the bathroom being scared to leave the flat again appear to have disappeared. Now its worth mentioning that the IBS issues were a problem BEFORE the medication entered my life, but I am convinced the stress was as a result of the meds, the anxiety and panic attacks were as a result.
There has been a few problems since I stopped taking the meds – it is not all plain sailing
I have been having dizziness problems, especially when I am out walking. Not enough to make me lose my balance or worry – but every now and again I have to stop in my tracks for a few seconds. Hopefully this will ease as my body readjusts to “normality” in terms of a lack of chemicals.
Secondly is the return of the sex drive! this is not good when you have tennis elbow :D
On the plus side I may have to seriously consider moving to Canada – click here to find out why!
Anyone else out there willing to support moose sex? if so please wear one of these badges so I can identify you!
Any Canadian readers please find me one these badges! I must have one!!!!
I feel alive, I want to get out again – hit the gym again and keep this fighting spirit going.
It may have cost me some friendships but I feel like this has been the right decision – so far.
Long may it last…. if not then please let the sex drive stay! priorities are in the right order..
