I have started my fast today. I have reduced my medication ( citalopram) to 10mg per day and intend to phase this out over the next 2 weeks.

Reasons For Fasting

I recently separated from my husband – who had an affair I discovered at Christmas. I have ate total rubbish since and self medicated with chocolate. I have psoriosis on my ankle and it reacts to emotions. I have been scratching this until it bleeds ( not nice but true) . I am in a mental rut right now and it is constant thoughts about my husbands affair. I am generally a very happy optimistic person but am sure in a rut here.I am so grateful to have a wonderful 3 year old daughter but I am still mentally stuck . I am hoping fasting will just give me a break. I want to stop eating rubbish and quieten down. Certainly to loose 20 or 30Lb would be a MASSIVE help to self esteem as I have always wanted to be 8 stone something.. but never ever been close.

I have a juicer and get organic foods delivered from local farm. I am just juicing whatever arrives in the vegebox.

Researchers have discovered that chocolate produces some of the same reactions in the brain as marijuana which is good news as chocolate smoking is legal. — Tom Coghill

  1. Hi brightstarleo
    You are on the right track by entering a fast. I have fasted through all the darkest days of my journey through life and was given peace, direction and healing. To help your skin problem ass essential oils, 4 tablespoons daily and 1200 IU vitamin E.

    Hi Tom , thank you for your reply. I am feeling much better already and will get the oils you suggest for my psoriasis. The fasting is going really as I no longer feel hungry. I have a feeling of contentment that I haven’t felt for such a long time. I do feel very much colder and need to wear 2 jumpers. I have not weighed myself as I want to just listen to my body at this point.All the juices I have are cold and I don’t many herbal teas really so need to find a suitable warm drink for fasting.
