    Terresa got a reaction from SchrodingersCat in My Whole 30 2.0   
    Mine is part of my Post-viral Syndrome (ME), and flares up, usually when I come down with a sinus/ears-related virus. This one's been a really long haul!

    I fell ill shortly after starting and ended up on medication. Back now though and restarted yesterday!

    Ok, ready to start again! Still having chiropractic and massage therapy, but I'm off the medications. Yay! Now I need this even more than before!
    Restarted yesterday, and remembered to eat breakfast today, so I'm off to a good start.

    Congrats Terresa! My first whole30 was in 2014 and SO much has changed since then! A lot of foods you had to make yourself are now available in stores, and people are becoming more aware of the sugar and general garbage in our processed foods! I have an autoimmune disease and resets like this definitely help a ton!

    It’s comforting to hear someone else who had excellent results and fell out. I was able to stop meds and I felt better than I ever have. That was 4 years ago and now I’m on day #4 again, feel great again, and I plan to stray little to none after 30 days.

    I so sympathise with the vertigo! Chronic unremitting vertigo was why I started W30 in January 2019. What causes yours? Mine turned out to be vestibular migraine caused by food intolerances. I slipped back into old ways of eating late last year and now I'm back on round, because it came back and was getting more persistent. I truly hope it lets up on you!

    Vertigo is awful! I hope you find some relief soon.

    2019 Was a huge year for transitions in our family. Although it was mostly in good ways, I got to the point where I was using too many "spoons" per day and not stopping to even try to recover. I had an ME crash in early November. In addition to all the usual symptoms of my chronic illness flaring madly, I gained 10 pounds in about 10 weeks and my digestive system has slowed to a crawl. Now it's time to care for my body properly again.
    Breakfast: 2 eggs, fried in coconut oil, with a mound of spinach - quick, easy, and I can make myself eat it when I don't want to eat. 1 cup coffee, straight up. Remember to eat within an hour of getting up. This is a good start for me, as I hardly want to move for the first 2-3 hours of the day.
    Goal: Hard-boil 6 eggs to have on hand.
