YOU know YOU best… and you know that your symptoms are real. Yes, the mind is a very powerful things and I fully believe in psychosematic (spelling? caused by the mind) symptoms and also the power of placebos and the power of positive expectancy. Do YOU feel that “happy pills” would help? If you don’t truly believe they will, then they may not work anyway?
It will be interesting to see Ables response…
thank you for responding so kindly!
No, I dont think that they will help. As I used my mind to look at the panic and stay calm, I stayed awake while watching the body suffer. I give you a metaphor so you understand how it felt.
If you are outside and it starts raining and storming and you get all wet. You dont say I am raining. You suffer rain but you are not raining. I suffered a body out of control doing its dance, my mind wanted to freak out about it but the “I” watched it wanting to freak out and I said. Wait there is no need to freak out, its only the body experiencing something. I am getting wet but I am not rain. I am experiencing fear but I am not fear. That work with my mind helped me to stay alert not loosing me in a unconscious state of panic.
I don’t know what a tranquillizer should help me with. It will be interesting what Able will tell me in connection with candida and its toxins. I still believe its the candida messing me up as I feel in the entire process a strange stomach reaction and the usual sympthoms of infestation.
What confuses me is that if the toxins are messing around with me, one should see that in the blood pressure or the white blood cell count, infection in the gut should show up but nothing. If we feel brain fog, why is not the low blood pressure showing up. How can you have these die-off sympthoms and nothing showing up is my big wonder.
