I am not happy today. It was all going good. Now I am back to where I was 3 weeks ago.
My stomach aches, I have severe diarrhea due to antibiotics although I have many supplements of probiotics etc.
As an extra, I have a fever due to tooth infection and 2 new cold sores appeared today because of that. I also have a sinus infection. So, pain doubled in my head.
I was watching Avengers and all I was thinking during the movie was: “Oh Thor, can you come and hit my jar with your hammer and end this please?”
A new one is added to my long list of auto-immunes, I now have Alopecia areata too. I am losing my hair. Doctor says that it could be another fungal infection or just without reason.
I’ve read website of National AA Foundation and try not to cry right now.
My hair is already very short and now I will shave it all. It looks so bad mostly on the left side in the front.
I will put garlic on my scalp but it will take time to regrow (if it regrows I hope)
Today, is not a good one. But I will keep on writing and trying. Not dead yet…
Did you know that tea tree oil can be used for pain relief for toothaches and treatment for cold sores?
I haven’t until today. I had a really bad tootache and put some tea tree oil to a tiny cotton ball and put it onto my tooth for 10 minutes. It stopped instantly and relieved me from a terrible ache for an hour. I will go to dentist tomorrow, so I should spend this night with an aching tooth. Thank God, there is something that heals everything: Tea tree oil!
Of course, this is not a cure, however it is definitely healthier and more effective than taking painkillers 🙂
I also used it for my cold sore at the corner of my mouth, when it was beginning to itch & grow this morning. With tea tree oil, its growth has stopped! I think tomorrow it would be even smaller. Normally, when I have a cold sore, it stays about 7-10 days and it grows very fast on the first day. Tea tree oil worked to stop its growth so I will keep on using it tomorrow.
Give it a try 🙂 I hope you don’t need it. I will post again on this topic and let you know the progress.
The cold sore thing shows that my immune system is not great although I keep getting better. Therefore, I should not assume that I am healed if I see an improvement. It will take time and effort. I’ve already accepted that fact but this time I am not depressed at all. I have had quite a breakthrough in the last 2 weeks and will keep on healing. Different from before, I have hope.
