After I graduated college, I kept having nightmares about “forgetting to go to a class, so I actually didn’t complete my coursework to earn my degree.”
They would take away my diploma and I’d find myself in a class I could never pass trying to earn it back – or rightfully, for the first time.
Either the class was entirely too complicated or it was something I was very rusty on… kind of like “Are you Smarter Than a 5th Grader?”
Tomorrow is “the day” – they are going to cut this cancer out of my leg and I have anxieties about them not getting it all, or finding much more melanoma than they expected, or even thinking they got it all, then calling to tell me, I need to come back so they can dig out more.
I am guessing this will infiltrate my dreams, just like the college diploma nightmare – but it hasn’t yet.
I certainly have had better sleep but I haven’t been remembering my dreams quite as much since taking some homeopathic & herbal remedies.
I have been seeing a homeopathic practioner for a few years now. She has helped me with countless ailments… a few highlights: healing an ulcer, finding the right vitamins for my body, protein powder that tastes good and has very clean ingredients, flower essence to help balance my various moods, prepping for labor & delivery of our son and now she’s helping me with prepping for this melanoma removal.
Here’s what she recommended for me (and if she recommends it, I do it):
Liquid Serenity Herbal Extract Compound
I squirt 30-60 drops of it into my water 3 times a day. It is helping me feel less anxious about everything that is going on & hopefully will prevent me from passing out on Tuesday.
Active ingredients are: Hypericum perforatum (St. John’s wort), Eschscholzia californica (California poppy), Eleutherococcus senticosus (eleuthero), Avena sativa (oat), Matricaria recutita (chamomile), Schisandra chinensis (wu wei zi), Scutellaria lateriflora (skullcap), orange essential oil, and lavender essential oil in a base of organic alcohol, spring water, vegetable glycerin and honey.
I started taking it on Friday and noticed a difference immediately. It’s like a chill-pill in a bottle. 🙂
The other thing she recommended was:
It is a homeopathic preparation mixture.
She said that both of them together will help.
Disclaimer: Of course EVERYONE is different, so I wouldn’t recommend just getting this for the heck of it. Find someone like my practitioner to advise you in the best direction for your individual needs.
In preparation for a newly healing scar, I picked up some of this at Vitamin Cottage:
Today’s mood: Happy in less than 24 hours, I’ll be at the doctor’s office, getting the melanoma cut out! It’s been a long 8 days of waiting since my diagnosis. And a long 13 days before that from biopsy to diagnosis. I am hopeful that they will get it all and that I’ll stay cancer free.
Today’s coping: Playing with Little Dude. Reading to him. Exercise. Chiropractor. Going to the store & stocking up on food. Getting scar prevention. Blogging. 🙂 I want to be praying more but I’ve been having a hard time concentrating.
Today’s ripple-effect: I got another blog comment saying someone is making their dermatologist appointment, yay! 🙂
