Here I sit with a cup of hot raspberry tea with lemon and honey,
all alone, listening to nothing.
Grateful for time, time to think, time to reflect
to see myself in the mirror of this life.
Time is so precious,
and I know it.
Yet I waste so much of it,
I am stronger than I think I am.
I am smarter than I think I am.
I found the answer.
I wondered why I wasn't getting better,
frustrated with no answers, only worsening symptoms.
I found it, all by myself, partly by elimination,
by tracking and analyzing everything I put in my mouth.
Today there is improvement, the swelling is better,
the blisters are better, the fatigue is better.
I feel stronger.
