My first cleanse (over a year ago) was 8 days, and I loved it. Yet I've been scared to start again ever since.
I had planned to do one in January. Didn't do it. I bought a bunch of lemons that went bad in my fridge. Now I have more lemons in my fridge. It seems there's always something.
Tomorrow I have to drive about a 3 hour round trip to pick up my kids. This week and next we are reviewing and then testing (I homeschool). I am afraid I will get really sick for a day or two and don't feel I can afford it. Yet I can't afford to keep eating so poorly either. I know I need a cleanse.
My biggy is my caffiene addiction. I am so afraid of that awful headache. Another thing is that I am on an anti-depressant (Wellbutrin). I've been on it for years now, on and off -- off during the cleanse over a year ago. I can't decide whether or not to wean myself first of the medication, or continue to take it during the cleanse. I can't talk to my Dr., because I know he will have a problem with the fast itself, and talk to me about eating in moderation. I've been trying to eat what's good for me, but I think I need the fast to break the food cravings.
Any suggestions or encouragement -- at all?
