It’s been a bit since I posted about the introduction to Evening Primrose so here it is.
I was expecting a BIG POW 💥 YES IT IS WORKING (or no it is not working) in BIG FlAShInG lights. I’m not sure why I always think that. Anyway, there were no flashing lights, no big 💥Pow!
But… it has been commented on multiple times about my memory and how it’s not only improved but creepily almost photogenic (I was read a debit card number and repeated it back several minutes later with almost 100% accuracy.)
So memory has shown huge improvement. Brain fog, I have it less often and less severe. I do still get it but now it feels like a time lapse- it’s hard to explain, it isn’t bad but a bit disorienting for a few minutes.
Okay here is the big one and the one that is making me see the flashing lights.
Holidays. We, chronic warriors dread the Holidays. Cooking, cleaning, socializing, staying awake, missing naps, needing extra medication just to make it through the day. Then add to that, dropping temperatures, rising air pressure, increasing moisture. The weather has a huge effect on me too.
- I woke extra early (unusual)
- I baked blueberry muffins.
- Cleaned up the kitchen.
- Showered & got ready
- Opened presents
- Cleaned up
- Started Christmas dinner
- Finishing up getting casseroles in the oven and other last minute things.
- FaceTime with family from back home.
- Ate Christmas dinner
- Cleaned up from Christmas dinner
- Family meeting
- Cleaned up mess from late eaters and pie makings.
In short: YES THE EVENING PRIMROSE IS HELPING! A lot! Especially with the depression, anxiety, keeping me calm which helps a lot with the Addisons Disease. My energy level has increase. The pain is still there but it not such a distraction. Recovery time is shorter!
So a great Big Special THANK YOU to my daughter in law for introducing me to this amazing little helper.
