    Read your body that is. Anyone else here with chronic health issues have some experiences they are willing to share. For me its gastro issues and insomnia so im having to learn what tired, hungry, thirsty, etc... feels like now. I haven't felt hunger in years and years. I eat because my alarm goes off telling me to take my meds and grab the window of relief while I have it. Now with MJ im feeling this strange stuff, its not pleasant stuff but its not bad either. Trying to decipher it is an odd experience...

    Almost all my body rules seem to be changing. Don't eat more than X amount in a serving, don't snack on high carb foods, don't eat more than an hour and a half after taking meds, don't have fluids within 1 hour of solids. Its so bizarre!

    What was the process of re-learning body ques for you out there? Tired is a hard one for me. Im used to be exhausted. I wake up tired, my eyes bother me most of the day, even when im still tired going to bed does no good because im awake for another 4 -5 hours bored out of my mind.

    I may have learned how to walk 3 times in my life (well sorta 4) but this is a whole other ball game. Walking is easier in a way....tell body to contract and relax certain muscles in certain order its not so subjective. Hungry and tired are very subjective experiences, more complicated to learn

    Yeah, still relearning hunger actually- still haven't gained weight though :\

    There have also been a lot of things I'm noticing that I never had before as well- for instance I never used to even notice the effects of caffeine, it just woke me up a little, now I actually understand what people mean when they say it has a buzz :spidey:
    I've since theorized that when you vape, you tend to become more conscious of your entire body rather than the simple things we always notice like hands, face, feet, etc.

    Ive been yo-yoing but upside is I stayed out of the 70's and I haven't been in the low 80's for about a month! Right now I go between 85 to 87 pounds so I haven't gain any extra over my initial few pounds but maintain in good too. I cant tolerat emuch caffeine a little bit of ark chocolate has my stomach spazing out. Haven't had coffee in many years haven't had so much as deaf tea in 2. I used to guzzle caffeine in college an it didn't really phase me. I could have coffee at 9pm and still be asleep by my usual time.

    try eating as much red meat as possible in one sitting just meat nothing else at least once a week.

    Takes days to digest red meat if you could just eat few of pounds of it a week would release that energy over the course of the following week.

    For me the body is in a constant state of recalibration. As some conditions improve, the needs of the body change. As some conditions don't improve, the needs of the body change. I have to constantly check in with my body and mind and make adjustments to lifestyle accordingly. Drinking clean water and laughing a lot are two things that seem to always work. :)

    Than you need a daily boost i would find raw bee pollen and mix 1 tablespoon with juice or a protein shake . do this daily twice to 3 times a day . also Royal jelly will also help so if your unable to use the pollen at least try the jelly :-)



    raw bee pollen is amazing stuff with lots of nutrition/
