I've been taking the Lansoprazole and Buscopan for 2 weeks now. It has made a lot of difference. i don't wake up with my stomach feeling like it's burning and I generally feel better in myself. Its been 6 months since my last energy drink and I don't actually miss it.
It's weird how you can get addicted to something that quickly to something that is so easy to obtain yet so dangerous. It shocks me that school kids drink the stuff despite the fact that the high level of stimulant can actually cause cardiac problems as well as a wealth of other things. I'm not going to go up on my high horse but I do think that there should be a reasonable restriction.
My new "poison" is favoured mineral water. It's not full of sugar and since starting to drink that, my hair, skin and nails have improved. It's been a long time since my complexion has been so good. Keeping myself healthier and taking care of myself from the inside has made me happier. I just wish my asthma would follow suit with improving but who knows, maybe one day.
I'm working on things one step at a time. I've sorted my finances out and for the first time in a while I don't feel overwhelmed by bills and deadlines. With decent planning and organisation I'm back on top of things and I'm glad. It doesn't take a long time to get back on your feet. If you're truly driven and want it enough.
I'm learning to live around my physical and mental difficulties. I don't pretend they don't exist and it certainly isn't a case that I don't see them. I just don't allow things to hold me back. All my dreams and goals are coming to fruition and my biggest goal of a secure future with those people I love is getting closer by the day.
We are bonding well with our new additions. Riza is a happy little bunny and she loves to cuddle and play with a rattle ball. The boys like her, even if she isn't too keen at present but after her operation next week she'll be a lot calmer and the boys won't try and do naughty things to her!!
