Lost weight, go figure, I’m in the luteal phase of my cycle. My friend progesterone. Great. Mercola says aluminium salts mimic oestrogen. I wonder if it is making me more hormonal and explains these dips at the wrong times of the month? What am I supposed to do? Go without alum crystal and wing it?

Woke up this morning feeling very groggy after yesterday’s exposure. I think the stress and shock of the last few days hasn’t helped. Literally couldn’t drag myself out of bed until lunch. I have had terrible shakes ALL day and have a mild headache. I feel as bad as I would if I’d eaten a curry yesterday. Sort of a salicylate hangover. Must have more bicarb.

Skin still ticcing. Eczema rash had moved (it does this sometimes after an exposure) this morning. Later it disappeared completely again. Brain has been fogged up. I watched Doctor Who DVDs all afternoon, hoping to wake up in the evening.

Didn’t wake up. Cooked my tea, sat down, ate it, and then flaked out at the table and literally couldn’t get up for about half an hour. This is the worst reaction so far. I can only describe it as total chronic fatigue. It was all I could do to drag myself upstairs and force myself into a bicarb soda bath. I feel a bit better for it, though I was disturbed to discover I have broken out in little tiny red spots all over my breasts. I look like I have measles. Well, I don’t care if it means I’m getting rid of stuff through my skin. The less toxins in my breasts the better.

I’m getting better and better between reactions, but when I have them it seems the reactions are worse than ever. I hope there will be a turning point soon and the reactions start to ease as they are supposed to, but even if things are like this forever, it’s worth the bad days if it means I get the good days.

Getting through things. My grandma’s death still hasn’t properly hit me emotionally, won’t do until the funeral, but at least I am thinking about it less. It’s my grandad I’m worried about.
